Bill Murray ditches the 'Late Show' to train for the NYC marathon

Bill Murray is a very busy man—and sometimes, being very busy means going for a run in a tux in the middle of a talk show interview.

On last night’s Late Show, Murray realized that he was less than a month away from the NYC Marathon. Apparently, he’d made a promise to himself that he was going to enter this year. In a panic that he wouldn’t have enough time to train, Murray took his interview on the run. After putting a little Bengay on his hands—to help with his achy knees, obviously—Murray took off for a quick, marathon-worthy sprint around the block, during which he stole from strangers and realized what it feels like to be born again.

Brad Pitt has a 'breakdance conversation' with Jimmy Fallon on 'Tonight Show'

It’s a little less conversation, a little more action in a new video from The Tonight Show that features Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon engaging in a “Breakdance Conversation”—meaning they breakdance in response to one another as subtitles tell us what words their moves translate to.

For example: Pitt, who currently stars in World War II film Fury, back-flips off a wall at one point, which apparently means, “If you don’t see [my movie], I’ll be furious.” Breakdancing Brad’s got jokes! READ FULL STORY

Real-life clowns are mad about 'American Horror Story'

At this point, clowns are more often associated with fear than with good timesand the Clowns of America International aren’t happy about it.

“Hollywood makes money sensationalizing the norm,” Glenn Kohlberger, the association’s president, told the Hollywood Reporter“They can take any situation, no matter matter how good or pure, and turn it into a nightmare.”

The latest nightmare is American Horror Story: Freak Show’s Twisty, a clown who murders and locks up his victims in an old school bus. The character’s so scary that, according to showrunner Ryan Murphy, some people walked out of the premiere, unable to handle it. “I personally don’t have that phobia but I understand that people do,” Murphy told EW earlier this month. “To them I say, watch it in the daytime, because it only gets worse.” READ FULL STORY

Chef celebrates 'The Walking Dead's' return with human-tasting burger

To honor The Walking Dead‘s fifth season premiere, a London chef took inspiration from the show’s walkers and their appetite for human flesh. But don’t worry—his food won’t give customers the same appetite that zombies have.

FWx discovered that Jim Thomlinson, the chef for London Mess, has debuted a burger that supposedly tastes like human flesh at the London pop-up Terminus Tavern. Better yet, the site published his recipe so that readers can make their own burgers at home. READ FULL STORY

Emma Stone plays Box of Lies on 'Tonight Show'

Emma Stone might be a great actress, lip synch-er, and Spice Girls fan, but liar? Not so much.

Stone went on The Tonight Show Tuesday to play Box of Lies, a game that involves lying about what you find in a mystery box. Stone pulled a Frozen DVD frozen in a block of ice in her box, but told Jimmy Fallon she had playing cards that were formed into a “sculpture stack of those cards in the shape of, I guess it could only be a salamander. Or like a gecko, I guess.” Thanks to the combination of Stone’s lack of lying skills and the impossibility of a gecko sculpture made out of cards, she lost the round.

In all fairness, she warned us: “I love to lip-synch, but I am a terrible liar,” Stone said before choosing her box. “So this is a bad game for me.” READ FULL STORY
