Rainn Wilson is returning to TV with a nasty attitude—and he’s hoping you’ll come along for the ride. The 49-year-old Office alum stars on the Fox drama Backstrom (which premieres tonight at 9 p.m.) as a gifted but maladjusted special-crimes-unit detective who fires his insults with the safety off. Keeping that in mind, let’s do a quick psych eval of the amiable actor. READ FULL STORY
Tag: EW Pop Culture Personality Test (1-10 of 244)
On The Originals, Joseph Morgan plays Klaus Mikaelson, a thousand-year-old hybrid with more than his fair share of baggage. Klaus’ hobbies including painting, killing, torturing, and just generally striking fear into the hearts of others.
So when Morgan came by our offices, we sat him down for our Pop Culture Personality Test to see how much he has in common with Klaus. Hint: Not much (unless Klaus secretly loves Avatar).
Don’t expect to see Nick Offerman and wife Megan Mullally embarking on an On the Run-style arena tour anytime soon: “The notion of us sitting around singing a song together,” Offerman says, “would be like Beyoncé singing a song with a three-year-old goat.” (He’s the goat in this situation.)
Anna Kendrick’s childhood love for Jonathan Taylor Thomas was not organic, she revealed when she took EW‘s Pop Culture Personality Test. How can that be? “I kind of got peer pressured into him being my first celebrity crush,” the Into the Woods star explained. “All my friends loved Jonathan Taylor Thomas so I thought I should like Jonathan Taylor Thomas.” What would JTT say?
As the holiday season rolls around, EW got around to asking film and television stars about the movies they like to watch around the holidays. We learned many things about stars’ holiday viewing choices, like how depressingly enjoyable Alex Borstein finds the Charlie Brown movies, and how Amber Tamblyn enjoys an annual viewing of The Big Lebowski.
Also, Lisa Edelstein does not like holidays! Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorcing Holiday Movies is more like it, right?
In his new film Life Partners, Adam Brody plays a character who creates drama when he comes between his girlfriend (Gillan Jacobs) and her lesbian best friend (Brody’s wife, Leighton Meester). But when Brody stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test, it was nothing but comedy. Well, until he talked about Jack Nicholson’s “manly cry.”
Watch the video below to find out about Brody’s his current TV obsession, the pop song he’s embarrassed to like, and the TV show and film that helped him come of age. READ FULL STORY
Eliza Coupe has no stomach for horror.
Coupe, who stars on USA’s Benched, told EW that Eli Roth’s gorefest actually made her vomit. Well… that or the iffy food she ate just before going to the theater. She also has a terrible fear of what lurks under her bed thanks to one Stephen King adaptation. Weirdly, though, Coupe also has a crush one Emmy-worthy TV character who encountered some pretty grisly situations last season (and not just his stringy ponytail).
Watch to find out what freaks out Coupe—and who probably shouldn’t turn her on. READ FULL STORY
Tyler James Williams has one warning: “Do not mess with my family.”
Williams, who plays Noah on The Walking Dead, is a massive Game of Thrones fan and a self-identifying Lannister. He’s also a major Star Wars fan who had a brief (and expensive) flirtation with collecting memorabilia from the iconic franchise.
But what priceless opportunity easily outdid anything Williams could have ever found on eBay? The chance to read for The Force Awakens.
Below, Williams spills on his once-in-a-lifetime Episode VII audition, justifies his Lannister love, admits to his TV crush, and name-checks the out-of-this-world action flick that inspired him to become an actor.
'The Hunger Games' star Willow Shields, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy walk into an elevator and...
After a huge opening weekend for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, it seems Willow Shields’ days of hobnobbing with A-listers are far from over.
While taking EW‘s Pop Culture Personality Test, Shields—who plays Primrose Everdeen, the younger sister of Jennifer Lawrence’s heroine Katniss—recalled having a fan-girly run-in with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy at San Diego Comic-Con. There was even a little danger involved.
Watch the video below to find out out what made Shields’ heart race (other than the X-Men stars), then read on for a full transcript and more of Shields’ insights on Prim’s beefed-up part in the new film. (Warning for those who haven’t seen the third Hunger Games installment: Stop reading now if you don’t want to know details from Mockingjay — Part 1.)
Stuart, the single Brit looking for love in Los Angeles—or, more accurately, a makeout session with a model— returns to HBO Saturday night with the premiere of Hello Ladies: The Movie. To celebrate the conclusion of last year’s hilarious one-season wonder, we gave star/cowriter/director Stephen Merchant a special romance-themed version of our Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video below to find who was his first celebrity crush, what song puts him in the mood (and why you never want to put your iPod on shuffle), which movie sex scene made him uncomfortable, and what he considers to be a relationship deal-breaker.
