Since Kenny Ortega announced that he was directing a reboot of Dirty Dancing (for which he was the original choreographer), there has been some speculation about who would play the iconic roles of Baby and Johnny. UK bookie Paddy Power has two names at the top of his list: Justin Timberlake and Emma Stone. According to British bookmakers, Timberlake has 3-1 odds of landing the role made famous by Patrick Swayze, while Stone is a 5-1 bet at stepping into Jennifer Grey’s ballet flats.

It’s season 42 of Sesame Street come Sept. 26 (check your local listings), and the guest list could not be hotter. Among those on tap: Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Robin Williams; up-and-coming actresses Emma Stone, Mila Kunis, and Amy Adams; Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Rico Rodriguez; Community’s Joel McHale and Ken Jeong; The Office’s John Krasinski; late night hosts Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, and Conan O’Brien; musicians Elvis Costello and Bruno Mars; The Daily Show’s Samantha Bee and Jason Jones; The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki; funny guys Seth Rogen and Andy Samberg; Tony winner Sutton Foster; New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees; the New York Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony; and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. How’s that for variety?
Which guest appearance are you most psyched for? McHale, according to the caption on this photo, at some point, “demonstrates the word ‘prickly’ with the help of his cactus, pineapple and porcupine pals.” Yes, they look very friendly in this picture. I cannot wait. Sadly, we have no idea what Ferguson is demonstrating in the shot below of him with three chickens, but we love it. We’ve also got a surprisingly dignified portrait of Jeong with Elmo for you as well. READ FULL STORY
Each week, we invite our Twitter followers to share their 140-character reviews of the weekend’s big opening films in our EW Exit Poll. Almost all the chatter this week was about Crazy, Stupid, Love., and most of it was positive, including prerequisite shout-outs to Ryan Gosling’s crazy, stupid abs and much-loved girl of summer Emma Stone. This week’s winning submissions are after the jump.

Crazy, Stupid, Love isn’t the kind of film you expect to have audience participation, but everyone I’ve talked to who also saw it over the weekend reports that their crowd was as audibly engaged as mine. SPOILER ALERT! MAJOR PLOT POINTS REVEALED! At my Saturday afternoon showing, the Sex and the City 2 style shot of stud Ryan Gosling eating his pizza and waiting for Steve Carell at the mall was met by the kind of laughter that makes you lean in to the person sitting next to you. When Carell came through the door at the bar after sleeping with Marisa Tomei, there was applause. Gosling telling Emma Stone that he seals the deal with women at his house by telling them he can do the lift from Dirty Dancing? Squealing. (It’s funny because it would work.) And Stone being revealed as Carell’s daughter? A collective gasp. (Though one of my friends said she assumed that from the trailer, I hadn’t.)
What moments got your audience going? I heard about a crowd clapping when Gosling took off his ring to have Carell’s back in the yard fight. I almost feel gypped!
Emma Stone is naturally a blond, but forgive us if we prefer her hair the color it was when we first met her, in films like Superbad. It’s not that we weren’t going to see Crazy Stupid Love and The Help if she hadn’t switched back to being a red-head this summer, but in the pantheon of awesome gingers, faux or not, she ranks awfully high.
Are you glad that Stone is back as a red head, too, PopWatchers? Let us know in the comments section!
cast as Gwen Stacy in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, the news was doubly surprising. First, because Emma Stone’s whole onscreen persona — bubbly, brassy, redheaded — seems like a natural fit for Spidey’s other love interest, Mary Jane. But on a grander scale, Stone’s casting was a complete break from a sainted superhero movie tradition: The actress who dyes her hair red. (See: Kirsten Dunst in the original Spider-Men, Famke Janssen in the X-Men trilogy, Scarlett Johansson and Gwyneth Paltrow in the Iron Men…yeesh, somebody working at Marvel in the ’60s must’ve had a serious ginger fixation.) Stone (who, to be fair, is actually a natural blonde) has now unveiled her new look, and it is…well, is bang-tastic a word? No? Well, perhaps it should be. Get on it, Dictionary.com! (No, not you, Urban Dictionary.)When Emma Stone was
Even with the blonde hair, Stone still looks more like a Mary Jane than a Gwen, but I have to admit: This hairstyle looks so insane that it’s actually making me more interested in seeing the movie. What do you think, PopWatchers? First impressions? Am I the only one who finds deeply fascinating symbolic layers hidden within Emma Stone’s hair?
Future Spider-Man paramour Emma Stone is hosting, rockers Kings of Leon are playing, and we’re giddily awaiting this week’s Saturday Night Live. EW has received an exclusive image from the promo that starts airing tonight. Bask in all the long-haired glory!
According to Science, only two percent of humanity has naturally red hair, but approximately 100 percent of high school comedies feature redheaded leads. Okay, only that first part is true, but does anyone else find it interesting that some of the most iconic stars in the teen-movie pantheon have red hair? Molly Ringwald in all the John Hughes movies, Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls, and now Emma Stone in Easy A. And if you throw in Angela Chase from the short-lived-but-never-really-dead My So-Called Life, you’ve got nearly 25 years of redhead domination.
Tell me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure Lohan’s the only natural redhead in the bunch (and her hair’s been pretty much every color but red for about five years now). But even that just adds to the curious mystique of the Red-Haired High School Outcast Goddess. READ FULL STORY
