Bear Grylls on how to survive 'Sharknado,' other movie scenarios

bear-grylls.jpg

In his new show, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, the outdoors expert teaches celebrities how to survive in the wild. So when Grylls stopped by the EW video studio, we had him teach us a thing or two about survival… in Hollywood.

We gave Grylls some of the toughest survival scenarios presented in movies and asked him for tips on how to deal with each one. From Titanic to Sharknado, he has a pretty good idea of how some characters could’ve made it out of their films alive.

How does 'The Bachelor Australia' compare to the U.S. 'Bachelor'?

Bachelorette Andi Dorfman has ended her quest to find love. Bachelor Juan Pablo wasn’t exactly the kind of guy America could root for. Therefore, it’s understandable that some viewers are looking beyond American borders to find a Bachelor love story worth watching. And as the age-old saying goes: When in doubt, always go down under.

Just last week, The Bachelor Australia launched its second season—featuring Blake Garvey, a very large, very charming man just starting his rose-filled journey. Almost immediately, the show started trending on Twitter, with folks across the globe latching onto the idea of watching tan, accented individuals fall in lust love. Based on America’s sudden interest in both Garvey and the show, we decided to get our hands on the first episode to see what all the fuss was about. Spoiler: The fuss is about sexy people, sexy accents, and a very intriguing (arguably sexy) white rose, plus a few more twists. Such as:

Listen to Anson Mount read a scene from 'The Breakfast Club'

Fans of Anson Mount know him as Bohannon on the AMC Western Hell on Wheels. But they may have also heard that he’s a huge fan of The Breakfast Club. EW had, which is why we asked him to perform a classic Bender-Claire scene with us when he popped by Entertainment Weekly Radio. It’s the best NSFW thing you’ll hear all day.  READ FULL STORY

Ask Dalton: Must 'Star Wars' fans educate newbies?

Are DVR battles hurting your marriage? What are the ethics of sneaking food into theaters—or watching lowbrow reality TV? Our resident pop culture omnivore Dalton Ross offers his sage advice.

I work at a library. Someone asked to take out The Empire Strikes Back after admitting he had not seen Star Wars. What to do?
—JENNIFER (@apatch4that)

You’ve come to the right place with this, Jennifer. Not unlike C-3PO himself, I am fluent in more than 6 million forms of communication, including (but not limited to) geek, nerd, dork, dweeb, and wannabe Jedi. This offense is not as grievous—or General Grievous, if you will—as it would seem. For one thing, The Empire Strikes Back is unquestionably the best installment in the Star Wars franchise, so you can hardly blame someone for wanting to go straight to it. Boba Fett! Yoda! Luke sucking face with his own sister! It’s all there. Also, it’s not like this guy was skipping the entire original trilogy to go Gungan-style and rock a little Jar Jar Binks. All that said…NO! DO NOT GIVE HIM THE MOVIE! Clearly you need to protect this patron from himself. How can he be expected to fully understand why Alec Guinness is some sort of vaguely bossy ghost unless he watches the complete story unfold? So wave your hand in front of your face and tell him this is not the movie he’s looking for…yet. Then force him—no pun intended—to watch Star Wars first, and hope he doesn’t whine about it like Luke and his stupid Tosche Station power converters. READ FULL STORY

Kathie Lee Gifford wrote an 18-minute musical about the 'Today' show

Here’s what you missed in the fourth hour of the Today show this morning: Kathie Lee Gifford revealed that she’s written an 18-minute musical featuring the Today anchors and crew.

Gifford made the announcement with co-host Regis Philbin, who is filling in for Hoda Kotb. The work is called Not Today and Tomorrow’s Not Looking Good Either, which sounds more like somebody trying to get out of a commitment than a celebration of all today (double meaning!) has to offer. Philbin, who hosted Live with Regis and Kathie Lee for 15 years, will guest star.

About that time Chris Pratt flashed Amy Poehler

Long before he was a Guardian of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt got in trouble with NBC for showing his coworkers his penis.

Pratt explained the incident on Wednesday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers: During the second season of Parks and Recreation, there’s a scene where Pratt’s Andy Dwyer shows up at then-girlfriend Anne Perkins’ home naked. Only Anne doesn’t open the door—Leslie Knope does.

As in most scenes with pixelated nudity, Pratt was actually wearing nude-colored briefs while shooting the scene. Then he decided to ditch them. You know, for art.

Recast 'Game of Thrones' princess posts hilarious video reaction

It’s a hard life, playing a princess on Game of Thrones. Sure, you get some guaranteed screen time whenever someone gets married. Sure, there’s always the ambient possibility that you’re suddenly going to become the most important character 40 episodes after you get introduced. But Thrones has also made a habit of recasting some of its minor characters, aging them upwards or beardwards, clearly operating under the assumption that people can barely keep track of the show’s 5,000 characters already.

Can you name every costume in our Comic-Con supercut?

Comic-Con-video.jpg

As anyone who’s ever dreamed of wielding superpowers or living in a magical fantasy realm or fighting demons knows, San Diego Comic-Con is the ultimate safe space for geeks—as one Con-goer told EW earlier this month, “Nobody is judging you here.” That’s why attendees go all out, bedecking themselves in elaborate outfits that put some low-budget big-screen costumes to shame.

Some of the best cosplayers we saw at Comic-Con this year make appearances in the following video, including one extremely convincing Han Solo in carbonite, more than one Daenerys Targaryen, a pair of Breaking Bad enthusiasts in yellow hazmat suits, a ninja turtle, someone channeling Barf from Spaceballs, a Bob’s Burgers-themed family (including one dressed like a burger), a Bane, a Hellboy, the Queen of Hearts, and a whole bunch more.

Ultimate geek cred question: How many of their costumes can you identify?
