EW Exclusive: Kris Allen performs an acoustic version of his new single 'Alright With Me'

kris-allenGet ready for the three days of Kris-mas at EW.com! Yes, folks, earlier this week we met up with American Idol season 8 champ Kris Allen at Manhattan’s Room Mate Grace Hotel lounge, where he performed an acoustic version of his new single “Alright With Me,” talked with us about creating a TMZ-style scandal to promote it, and then delivered a bonus performance of a certain “controversial” ditty as a special treat for Idolatry viewers. Because we’re not all about instant gratification here, we’ll dole out the good stuff over the next three nights, starting with the absolutely infectious “Alright With Me” after the jump. Come back at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday for the interview segment, and at the same Idol time on Thursday evening for the encore performance. And to get all my Idol-related news and commentary, follow me on Twitter @EWMichaelSlezak. Enjoy! READ FULL STORY

EW Reunions: 'The West Wing' cast talk President Obama, and where their characters are now

Reunions_West-WingThe cast of The West Wing must really enjoy each other’s company. Our reunion shoot for the Emmy-laden NBC drama was scheduled for a Sunday morning — early Sunday morning, at a dive bar in East Los Angeles, on one of the hottest days of the waning summer. Some of the women were scheduled to arrive at 7 a.m. Again: On a Sunday.

But Martin Sheen (President Josiah Bartlet), Allison Janney (C.J. Cregg), Bradley Whitford (Josh Lyman), Elisabeth Moss (Zoey Bartlet), Dulé Hill (Charlie Young), Janel Moloney (Donna Moss), Kathryn Joosten (Dolores Landingham), and Stockard Channing (Abigail Bartlet) could not have been more game to reconnect and reminisce about the show, its impact on the culture and their careers, its eerie parallels with Barack Obama’s ascent to the real White House, and where their characters would be today.   READ FULL STORY

EW Reunions: Sean Astin, Dominic Monaghan, and Elijah Wood reminisce about 'Lord of the Rings'

LOTR-REUNIONSince hobbits routinely live for more than a century, 11 years is practically nothing, right? That’s how long it’s been since actors Sean Astin, Dominic Monaghan, and Elijah Wood flew out to New Zealand in August 1999 to start shooting The Lord of the Rings. Now here they are, in an L.A. studio on a hot May morning, posing for EW’s Reunions issue and catching up on lost time. Monaghan, sporting crutches after breaking his foot while surfing, proceeds to show off his new Kat Von D tattoo (It reads, “Luminous beings are we, not just crude matter,” as spoken by Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back), while Astin’s three adorable daughters sprint around the studio. It doesn’t take long before the trio’s conversations turn back toward those two years in New Zealand. READ FULL STORY

EW Reunions: Jennifer Garner and Victor Garber talk 'Alias'

Four years after Jennifer Garner kicked her last enemy-of-the-state ass as Sydney Bristow on Alias, the actress and Victor Garber (who played her elusive father on the ABC series) got together for EW’s Reunions issue. In a New York City hotel room on a misty end-of-summer day, the duo posed for pictures with the kind of ease that only the closest friends share. Which is exactly what the former co-stars are. (Garber officiated at Garner’s wedding to Ben Affleck in 2005.) READ FULL STORY

EW Reunions: Michael J. Fox and Lea Thompson go 'Back to the Future'

It’s hard to believe it’s been 25 years since Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) first leaped into that plutonium-powered DeLorean and time-traveled back to 1955. But on this rainy October day in New York City, Fox and his Back to the Future costar Lea Thompson, who played Marty’s mother, Lorraine, act like no time has passed, warmly posing with each other alongside a replica of the iconic car. “Being with the car is great — it’s more fun ­being with Lea,” says Fox, 49, who will return to TV Nov. 9 in a guest spot on The Good Wife. “I just remember all these things with the car — smashing my head on the door, hitting my knee on the flux capacitor.” READ FULL STORY

It’s a sad day for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon fans who have been absorbed in the dramatic happenings of Fallon’s Hills-parody, 7th Floor West: tonight marks the FINAL installment of the series.

What do you think PopWatchers? Are you sad for the end of 7th Floor West? Will you watch tonight?


'The Buried Life' video: Dave gets his butt kicked for your amusement

In Fight Club, the doucheboat neo-fascist Tyler Durden memorably asks, “How much can you know about yourself if you’ve never been in a fight?” The Buried Life‘s Dave Lingwood must have been pondering that same question. In an upcoming episode of MTV’s bucket-list reality show (the second season kicks off tonight at 10:30), he sets a goal for himself: “I want to fight a really good fighter.” That leads to a brutal month of training, which culminates in a showdown with an actual Ultimate Fighter.

EW talked to Dave about his training regimen (check out the video after the jump) and his backup plan (hint: breakdance-fighting!) about six hours before the big fight. (Look for the episode in early November.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What’s it been like training for the fight?
DAVE LINGWOOD:
The last month has been an endless Rocky montage. In the mornings I’ll go and do either a run or a class. At nights I’ll do sparring and Muay Thai. I also went into training with a Shaolin monk and learned some crazy pressure-point accuracy stuff. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to use it, but it was just cool to hang out with this 80-year-old Shaolin monk with a mullet.

My ear is blown, I’ve fractured my nose… It’s just been so, so intense. I’m the youngest of three boys, and I’ve been getting butt kicked my whole life. So it’s nice to take out that aggression on someone else. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Nicaragua' quick take: Everyone goes absolutely bonkers!

Image credit: Monty Brinton/CBS

Nicaragua turned into crazy town this evening with accusations, admissions, apologies, and a heaping helping of flat out arrogance. In the end, after a heated Tribal Council, it cost one person their spot in the game, while several others found themselves on very shaky ground. My full recap will be up at midnight (UPDATE: Click to read Dalton’s full Survivor recap, now live), but if you can’t wait to sound off on all the fireworks, read on after the jump. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Wednesday's episode of Survivor: Nicaragua.] READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Nicaragua': Jeff Probst on the new season, final 3 vs. final 2, and how long he'll keep hosting

Image Credit: Monty Brinton/CBS

Survivor: Nicaragua premieres tonight on CBS. Yes, that’s right — the show has switched back to Wednesdays. But how does host Jeff Probst feel about being moved off TV’s most important evening (Thursday), especially after dominating it for years? The host discusses his feelings about the displacement as well as several other Survivor hot-button topics in parts 3 & 4 of our on-location chat, topics like: some new wrinkles to the hidden immunity idols to keep contestants from finding them every 13 seconds; why the show prefers a final 3 as opposed to final 2 (they couldn’t be more wrong on this, if you ask me); and whether this will indeed be Probst’s final year hosting the reality giant. (Yep, the three-time Emmy winner’s contract is up again in May.) You’ll also be treated to some exclusive in-game and behind-the-scenes footage along the way. Check out what Probst has to say in the video player after the jump, and then hit the message boards and let us know what you think about the great final 3 vs. final 2 debate. Also make sure to watch parts 1 & 2, where Probst shows off his heavy metal singing voice and explains what made him so upset at the first immunity challenge., as well as the first two minutes of the Survivor: Nicaragua season premiere. And check back here tomorrow for my full recap of tonight’s premiere. Finally, for more Survivor scoop, follow me on Twitter @EWDaltonRoss. READ FULL STORY
