Whoopi Golberg pens love letter to her vaporizer

Whoopi Goldberg is in love, guys. But not with a human – with her vaporizer pen.

The EGOT winner is now writing for The Cannabist (a publication all about, well, guess). In her first piece, she explains how her trusty vaporizer pen has helped her deal with the pain of glaucoma. Goldberg’s daughter gave her the instrument – and that’s when her love affair with Sippy (yes, “her” name is Sippy) was born.

James Franco rants about 'New York Times' review on Instagram

When the New York Times didn’t give James Franco the glowing Of Mice and Men review he wanted, the actor took to his favorite hangout, Instagram, to express his displeasure.

The show opened Wednesday night on Broadway, with Franco starring as George opposite Chris O’Dowd’s Lennie. It seems Franco spent this morning reading over reviews — including Times theater critic Ben Brantley’s evaluation. Although Brantley didn’t outright insult Franco, or even write anything overwhelmingly negative — in fact, he complimented Franco’s talent, but noted that the star is “often understated to the point of near invisibility” in the play — Franco still wasn’t pleased.

Need a 'Scandal' season finale (wine) drinking game? It's handled!

Nobody does a season finale quite like Shonda Rhimes, and because of that, nobody needs a finale drinking game more than Scandal fans. And considering Thursday night’s finale quite literally features a bomb, that glass of wine is probably looking better than ever (if you’re of age, of course).

So in honor of Olivia Pope’s love of red wine, we’ve made this a wine-specific drinking game. We have no idea what to expect heading into tonight, but at least we can give you this much. Follow the rules below to play along, and as always, please drink responsibly: READ FULL STORY

Meet the new Mormons: Ben Platt and Nic Rouleau are on a mission in Broadway’s biggest musical

Nic Rouleau couldn’t get a ticket to The Book of Mormon.

Like the stories you’ve no doubt heard about the wildly popular, box office-busting Broadway show, tickets are one of New York’s hottest commodities, and they have been since the record-breaking musical opened just three years ago. So Rouleau turned to the show’s daily lottery system — about 2 dozen tickets offered raffle-style to eager patrons, 98 percent of whom will leave disappointed — and lucked his way into the Eugene O’Neill Theatre that way.

Mara Wilson has 'no interest' in 'Mrs. Doubtfire' sequel

The just-announced Mrs. Doubtfire sequel won’t feature a full cast reunion. Mara Wilson, who played Robin Williams and Sally Field’s young daughter Natalie Hillard, has announced she has no desire to return for a second movie.

“I’ve been in some mediocre movies, but I’ve never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now,” the actress and writer wrote on Twitter. “Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end.”

It was revealed Wednesday that Robin Williams will reunite with original director Chris Columbus for the sequel, which will be written by Elf writer David Berenbaum.

Check out all of Wilson’s Mrs. Doubtfire sequel thoughts below. READ FULL STORY

Confessions from a 'Real World' open casting call

the-challenge-01.jpg

Has there ever been a moment in your life when you thought you wanted to stop being polite and start getting real?

Though everyone joins the real world at some point in their life, not everyone gets to join the cast of The Real World. When MTV first started the show about strangers living together in 1992, its simple format pioneered reality TV as we know it. Now, it seems every other show is “real” in some way, or at least pretends to be. MTV just finished a controversial season of The Real World that broke format for the first time by bringing in some of the contestants’ exes to live in the house with them. Suddenly, not everyone was a stranger. And with the new season (the 25th!) of Real World/Road Rules Challenge premiering last week, some of these castmembers just won’t go away. So what exactly does it take to get the keys and get picked? As a fan, I was curious and decided to spend a Saturday afternoon at the Hooters of Burbank for a recent open casting call. Full disclosure: It was actually my second time going to a Real World casting call, and my second time in a Hooters. READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' recap: It's not easy being green

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t seen the April 16 episode of Arrow, stop reading now!

Well, that was an action-packed welcome back to Starling City! We have a lot to talk about, but first, I have to say that the moment I’m still hung up on from this episode was that maneuver where Oliver successfully flipped Felicity over the stairwell and they somehow both landed on their feet like they were cats or something. Is that weird? I mean, I know a lot just happened and major stuff is going down, but was that not incredibly impressive? Am I the only one stuck on this? That’s cool. I’ll move on. READ FULL STORY

'Neighbors': Seth Rogen and Zac Efron try out for 'Workaholics' cubicle -- NSFW VIDEO

Workaholics-Neighbors.jpg

In a new Comedy Central video, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron audition for the most coveted role of them all: the fourth member of Adam, Blake, and Anders’ cubicle on Workaholics.

Their appearance in the Workaholics world is part of a promotional tour for the duo’s upcoming movie Neighbors, in which Rogen plays a new dad who clashes with his family’s new neighbor, a rowdy frat — and let’s just say Efron lives up to his role as cocky frat boy in the clip. READ FULL STORY
