Adam Pally hasn’t been known for playing the most fitness-obsessed characters, but the actor partnered with Ubisoft for Shape Up, a game that lets players exercise from the comfort of their own home using the Xbox One’s Kinect camera.

That promise excited Pally enough to partner with Ubisoft for a video campaign for the game. Pally spoke to EW about his work with Shape Up, his other projects, and his own unique, and at times dangerous history with exercise.

Polished concludes this week with Sarah Rayne of the excellent Los Angeles band Babes. (See them in San Francisco on December 11 and their hometown on December 12.) Even if you don’t know Babes, you know Rayne’s voice: She was Sid’s little sister in the original Toy Story. She did a bunch of other acting as a kid/adolescent as well, but has stuck to music lately. Before Babes went out for its first big U.S. tour, Jamie Lee talked to Rayne about her interesting life.

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

'Tales from the Borderlands' Episode 1 review: Short-changed heroes

Tales-from-the-Borderlands.jpg

Tales from the Borderlands is a bit of a departure for Telltale. After two seasons of The Walking Dead and one of A Wolf Among Us, Telltale has proved the studio can deliver powerful, dramatic story and character beats like few other game studios do these days. But what if Telltale tried to be funny?

The answer to that is  “Zer0 Sum,” a funny, exciting excursion into the world of Gearbox Software’s Borderlands series with a smart meditation on the idea of trust in a world where so little of it actually exists.
