Shia LaBeouf explains his Broadway arrest, blames whiskey

Shia LaBeouf grabbed Alan Cumming’s butt. And that’s only a small part of the story behind his June arrest.

The Fury star went on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night and explained how he got arrested during a performance of Broadway’s Cabaret, starring Cumming and Michelle Williams. And it all, not surprisingly, started with whiskey.

“I had been drinking a lot of whiskey in Ireland, I come back, I land, and it’s the World Cup,” LaBeouf said. “And you drink a lot of whiskey during the World Cup, it seems.” READ FULL STORY

Billy Eichner condemns Burger King ad: 'Thanks for stealing my act'

Billy Eichner has staked out his place in the comedy world by taking to the streets and yelling about pop culture. Now that Burger King has used a similar technique to advertise chicken nuggets, he’s fighting back. READ FULL STORY

Louis C.K. shares more thoughts on Twitter, this time about ISIS

Louis C.K. has a lot of thoughts. He has thoughts on TMZ, on where we all came from, and today, he has thoughts on extremist group ISIS—or, as he calls them, “homegrown raping marauding c–ts.”

ISIS, a group based in Iraq and Syria, has beheaded several hostages in the past months and distributed videos of the murders to the masses. C.K. suggested that the group “f–k each other in the mouth with forks.” He also proposes that we “f–k ISIS in all 3 holes and make a fifth and f–k them there too” before apologizing for writing “3 holes” instead of “4 holes.” Good thing that’s cleared up.

'SNL' remembers Jan Hooks with 'Love is a Dream'

Saturday Night Live alum Jan Hooks, who died Oct. 9 at age 57, was most well-known for her comedic impressions of people like Hillary Clinton and her recurring character Candy Sweeney, but SNL didn’t showcase any of those roles when they paid tribute to her Saturday night: Instead, they showed “Love is a Dream,” a short, sweet film starring Hooks and fellow SNL alum Phil Hartman.

Bill Hader hosts 'Saturday Night Live' this week-talk about it here!

Tonight’s episode of SNL will have everything.

Okay, maybe not. But after a shaky start, a visit from a beloved former cast member might be just what season 40 needs to get back on track. And Bill Hader isn’t just one of the show’s best-known recent alumni—he’s among the most skillful, versatile players in SNL history. Some would even call him the show’s best cast member ever; no less an authority than Bill Murray is one of those people. READ FULL STORY

'Gilmore Girls' redefined parent-child relationships on TV -- and helped me understand my own

Gilmore Girls has finally made its way to Netflix, and while the entire series has only been available for a little over a week, most fans are probably well into their rewatches by now. (Even the Hulk is on season six already.)

As this is the first time the show has been available outside of DVD releases—and ABC Family reruns–there’s been a revival of many of its biggest talking points. Who should Rory have really ended up with? Who’s the best Stars Hollow resident? What episodes need to be watched or skipped while marathoning the show for the 12th time?

There’s not quite as much discussion, however, of the show’s most important dynamic: Lorelai and Rory Gilmore’s relationship. Maybe that’s because Lorelai and Rory’s connection is a given—their ups and downs and pop culture references are the bedrock of nearly every episode. But we should be talking about that unique relationship, because it’s one that makes a parent and child more than family: Gilmore Girls makes them best friends too.

'Shaq Fu,' Val Kilmer & Slash in 'Breaking Bad 2,' and more weird crowdfunding projects

POTATO-SALAD-KICKSTARTER.jpg

First potato salad, now an album made entirely of cat sounds: The ideas behind high-profile crowdfunding projects are sounding more and more like a game of Mad Libs.

Some background: Killer Mike and El-P, who make music together as the hip-hop duo Run the Jewels, joked in September about releasing a special edition of their next album that replaces all their beats with cat sounds. Then a Kickstarter user created a campaign to turn the joke into a reality. Soon, musicians like Zola Jesus, Boots, Just Blaze, and more clambered to contribute to Meow the Jewels.

As goofy as the project is, it’s far from the weirdest celebrity crowdfunding project the Internet has ever seen. From Shaq Fu to a personal Kenny Loggins concert, here are some of the oddest requests trying to get your money.
