Phish frontman Trey Anastasio on his new Broadway show, 'Hands on a Hardbody' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

A new musical about a car dealership contest in Texas might not be what you would expect from Phish frontman Trey Anastasio. In Hands on a Hardbody, there are no 15 minute guitar-heavy, lyrics-free, pot-fueled run-on jams, just a collection of stories about the people competing in a small town contest to win a pickup truck, focusing on 10 characters with their hands firmly fixed on the Nissan in question. Below, Anastasio and lyricist/co-composer Amanda Green (Bring It On: The Musical) discuss the show, which opens on Broadway this Thursday, and preview some of the songs from the new musical.

'Downton Abbey,' the Fiesta of TV? Ford defends car over Jeremy Irons' slam -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Downton Abbey fans weren’t the only ones to take offense to Jeremy Irons’ recent remarks about their beloved show. After reading about how the actor dubbed the British series “the Ford Fiesta of television,” the motor company got in touch with EW to set the record straight.

“Jeremy Irons is an great actor. Everyone knows that. But our Fiesta is a great car. Given the situation, we thought it would be best to issue a formal response with something Mr. Irons could appreciate: a ridiculously dressed, Shakespeare-spouting Bard of Ford,” Car Communications Manager Dan Mazei wrote us in an email. “Irons had his chance to respond. Why shouldn’t we?”

Our bad. We never considered the true victim of Irons’ hurtful comments — not the popular period drama, but the poor lime green hatchback that somehow became the actor’s standard for mediocre in the first place. And that’s rich coming from a man who starred in Dungeons & Dragons. So Ford took 24 hours, collected all the Shakespearean garb they could find, and created a brand new mascot to issue their official response. Check out the exclusive video below: READ FULL STORY

Wilson Bethel shakes that healthy butt, calls Flavor Flav a 'darling guy' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Time to get serious, PopWatchers. Please immediately tear yourself away from videos of kittens or Honey Boo Boo reciting Christopher Walken lines or your latest ridiculata fix because Hart of Dixie heartthrob Wilson Bethel is bringing the bananas. In this EW exclusive, Bethel is premiering the music video for his new web comedy Stupid Hype. This loving homage to the early ’90s falls right in the center of the Venn diagram of “Ice, Ice Baby,” “Baby Got Back,” and every other awesome thing from the heyday of Hypercolor and high-rise jeans. Behold below!


Katie Holmes and Norbert Leo Butz on Broadway's 'Dead Accounts' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Katie Holmes, who made her Broadway debut four years ago in a revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, returns to the Great White Way next month in Dead Accounts, a new comedy by Smash creator Theresa Rebeck that’s become one of the most buzzed-about plays of the season.

In this exclusive clip, the former Mrs. Tom Cruise and her costar, two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz, talk about working together on the timely story of a con man who returns home suddenly flush with cash and upsets the order in his tight-knit family (including his sister, played by Holmes). The limited-run show, directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien, begins previews Nov. 3 before an official opening on Nov. 29.

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre plays set to screen in U.S. movie theaters -- EXCLUSIVE TRAILER AND POSTER

In a twist on Jacques’ declaration in As You Like It that “all the world’s a stage,” Shakespeare’s stage is now coming to the world.

Three plays performed last year in London’s Globe Theatre, a reconstruction of the home of William Shakespeare’s plays in the latter half of his career, will be screened in movie theaters in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and the U.K. starting this fall.

EW has the exclusive trailer and poster for this year’s “Globe on Screen” season, which features productions of two comedies by the Bard, All’s Well That Ends Well and Much Ado About Nothing, and the hellish tragedy by one of his contemporaries, Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus.

Starring in 'Newsies' for one night only! Behind the scenes of the Broadway smash -- VIDEO

Here at EW, we’re all pretty big fans of Disney’s Broadway musical Newsies (deal with it, Christian Bale!), but I don’t think anyone in the office would dare suggest that he or she is a bigger fan than me. I mean, I’m sort of obsessed.

Having grown up watching the movie, I saw the show back in April and fell in love. I proceeded to talk every one of my co-workers’ ears off about it, and then wrote a feature story on the show’s success. After that, I posted some online articles, and then, whythehecknot? I posted some more. Hey, I know what I like.

So when Disney offered me the chance to step onto the Broadway stage for a cameo performance — with a line and everything! — in Newsies for a night, I wasn’t about to say no.

Of course I documented the whole experience (well, except the initial wardrobe fitting… that would just be awkward), and you can watch it all below. Part 1 chronicles my rehearsal and “performance,” and Part 2 features backstage interviews with the cast talking about their lives on the Broadway stage. Check it out below! READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars Live' cast: Here's what happens in Vegas! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Last weekend I made the fantastic voyage to Planet Mirrorballus’ desert satellite to check out Dancing With the Stars: Live in Las Vegas — which got an extended run until August 5. See my review of the show here!

Our Pros Tristan MacManus and Lacey Schwimmer, Vegas host Carson Kressley, and season 4 runner-up Joey Fatone sat down with me backstage to dish on casino living and the difference between Live in Vegas and the “Liiiiiiiiiive! From Hollywood!” version we see on TV.  (Tristan has since left the show due to a knee injury — as you can see, he was already “elevating.” What the heck is that on his shoe?) Watch them below: READ FULL STORY

Behind the scenes of 'One Man, Two Guvnors' TV spot -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you’re (a) in the New York area, (b) in possession of a moderate amount of disposable income and (c) familiar with the feeling of laughter, you should know about James Corden’s star-making performance in One Man, Two Guvnors, arguably the funniest show running on Broadway that doesn’t have to do with Mormons.


Daughtry releases new version of 'Rescue Me' for 'We Can Be Heroes' campaign -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Chris Daughtry announced at a concert last night that he has teamed up with DC Entertainment’s “We Can Be Heroes” campaign, an initiative to stop hunger in the horn of Africa.

As part of the effort, Daughtry recorded an acoustic version of their song “Rescue Me” and performed it for the first time at their concert in Los Angeles last night in front of a backdrop featuring some of DC Comics’ most popular superheroes.
