'Walking Dead' star Josh McDermitt secretly read 'Sweet Valley High'

On The Walking Dead, Josh McDermitt’s character, Eugene, is a skilled liar—and also still alive, at least going into the Nov. 30 midseason finale. But McDermitt himself will always give it to you straight, which we learned when he took our EW Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video below to find out why he didn’t enjoy Pulp Fiction, which TV character he’d date in real life, why he picked up the Sweet Valley High book series when he was young, and why a dog once bit him in the butt.

'Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever' is the worst Christmas movie ever

Grumpy Cat would hate her movie. Like, hate-hate it.

Lifetime’s weirdly meta film, Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever—which comes complete with Aubrey Plaza appearing onscreen to announce she’s voicing the beloved Internet meme—is, essentially, the story of one young girl’s attempt at making friends and saving a mall. Yep; it sounds about as interesting as it is to watch. READ FULL STORY

Watch 'The Walking Dead' star Tyler James Williams talk about his 'Star Wars' tryout

Tyler James Williams has one warning: “Do not mess with my family.”

Williams, who plays Noah on The Walking Dead, is a massive Game of Thrones fan and a self-identifying Lannister. He’s also a major Star Wars fan who had a brief (and expensive) flirtation with collecting memorabilia from the iconic franchise.

But what priceless opportunity easily outdid anything Williams could have ever found on eBay? The chance to read for The Force Awakens.

Below, Williams spills on his once-in-a-lifetime Episode VII audition, justifies his Lannister love, admits to his TV crush, and name-checks the out-of-this-world action flick that inspired him to become an actor.

What we learned during 'The Making of Peter Pan Live!'

With Peter Pan Live! only a week away, NBC teased their production Wednesday night with a documentary aptly titled The Making of Peter Pan Live! Though EW has already discussed the new songs and Tinkerbell’s digital makeover, the special gave us a taste of what the show is actually going to look like, and it’s lavish. The Neverland set has a technicolor edge to it—in fact, it has a look that resembles the 1939 Wizard of Oz or the Disney Wonderland—replete with a treasure map floor and giant trees of roses. All of that will be captured by roughly 16 cameras, television director Glenn Weiss explained.

The special also let audiences hear some of the new numbers: “Vengeance,” a zippy pirate production number, and “Only Pretend,” a softer ballad for Wendy. Additionally, here are some things we learned:

Jason Sudeikis plays an aggravated juggler in never-aired 'SNL' sketch

Seth Meyers gave Jason Sudeikis the chance to get his beloved, never-aired Saturday Night Live sketch about the humiliations of a juggling lessons peddler on the air as part of Late Night‘s “Second Chance Theatre” Tuesday.

Sudeikis had discussed his love for “juggling flyer” on an earlier episode of Late Night in which Meyers said the sketch is “just historic upstairs.” In it, Sudeikis plays a suspenders-wearing man who becomes enraged with the patrons of a coffee shop after realizing that no one has pulled any of the tabs from his flyer for “jugging lessons.”

The sketch is a little long, but it has some golden moments, including late in the game flubs and Fred Armisen’s impenetrable deadpan.  READ FULL STORY
