'Game of Thrones': Amanda Peet has a master plan to join the cast

Fun fact: Amanda Peet is married to David Benioff, best known as co-showrunner of Games of Thrones.

Even more fun fact: While on Craig Ferguson’s show Tuesday night, Ferguson pumped Peet for details about what life is like in their household. “What I do is, I go around my house just sort of auditioning for parts on Game of Thrones,” she joked.

Ferguson then pointed out that considering her marriage, there’s probably an easier way for her to get on the HBO drama. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

Egypt's answer to Jon Stewart ends satirical show; Stewart responds

Satire isn’t for everyone, apparently: Egyptian television host Bassem Youssef has canceled his Daily Show-esque series, saying “the present climate in Egypt is not suitable for a political satire program.”

Youssef, who’s often described as the “Jon Stewart of the Arab World,” hosted successful satirical news show Al-Bernameg (The Program) for three years. During that time, he frequently ran into trouble because of Egypt’s tense political climate: Just last year, a warrant was issued for Youssef’s arrest when he was accused of insulting then-president Mohamed Morsi and the Islamic faith.

T-W-O W-I-N-N-E-R-S: Spelling Bee crowns co-champs for first time in 52 years

The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat — the Scripps National Spelling Bee has it all, plus the joy that comes from watching delightful little nerdburgers blow everyone away with their uncanny ability to sound out works like “avellaneous” (a synonym of “hazel”) and “ptyalagogue” (“a drug or other agent that increases the flow of saliva;” can you spell “ew”?).

And naturally, this year’s Bee wasn’t short on memorable moments — especially at the end, when 14-year-old eighth grader Sriram Hathwar and 13-year-old seventh grader Ansun Sujoe became the event’s first co-champions in 52 years. (Previously, the Bee has ended in ties in 1962, 1957, and 1950.) READ FULL STORY

50 Cent throws truly terrible opening pitch at Mets game -- VIDEO

Great news for Carly Rae Jepsen: She’s no longer responsible for the worst celebrity first pitch ever.

That honor now goes to Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, courtesy of Tuesday night’s New York Mets-Pittsburgh Pirates game. Jackson wound up tossing the ball crookedly, to the area between home and first base. As the announcer for one station noted, “It’s good. He never [had to choose] between playing for the Mets and being a rapper.”

A laughing Jackson took it all in stride: While the pitch may not have met his pre-game Twitter promise of “This is gonna be good,” at least he’ll have his 14 Grammy nominations to fall back on.

Watch Curtis attempt to make the pitch (or die trying) below: READ FULL STORY

Lea Michele 'pleads the fifth' when asked about Matthew Morrison on 'WWHL' -- VIDEO

Rachel Berry would never – but Lea Michele kept her lips zipped when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live!, Bravo’s talk show/boozefest hosted by Andy Cohen, Thursday night.

Cohen didn’t waste any time before breaking out his signature game, Plead the Fifth. While he stayed away from asking Michele for details about this year’s Naya Rivera drama, he did bring up something the actress wrote in her just-released book: Prior to Glee, she said, she briefly dated co-star Matthew Morrison. In Cohen’s world, there’s just one inevitable follow-up question: On a scale of one to ten, how was Mr. Schu in bed?

Michele had the perfect dodge to get out of answering: Her dad was standing just a few feet away. Elsewhere in the game, she revealed that she’s never felt any of her plots on Glee came close to jumping the shark…which, I’m sorry, but HAHAHAHAHA. Remember just a few weeks ago, when Rachel quit her lead role on Broadway? Love it or not, that show has been finding new sharks to jump over since the first season…and yet, somehow, Rachel and Co. still have one more Glee season to go.
