Theo Rossi will admit he was competitive playing Scene It? with his friends when they first moved from New York to LA, so it’s no surprise that he’s an entertainment junkie. To prove it, the man who plays Juice on FX’s Sons of Anarchy sat down to take one of our Pop Culture Personality Tests.

'Chicago PD' star Sophia Bush reveals which TV character she'd date

Sophia-Bush-PCPT.jpg

Sophia Bush plays one of the toughest women on television as Erin Lindsay on Chicago PD, but it isn’t all an act, especially considering that Bush would like to date one of television’s scariest criminals. Then again, we’re not sure Lindsay would watch HBO’s Ja’mie: Private School Girl.

Regardless, we sat Bush down for our Pop Culture Personality Test, in which she revealed her first celebrity crush, her current celebrity crush, and her questionable fictional crush. Bonus tidbit: “Redneck Woman” by Gretchen WIlson is her go-to karaoke song.

Final note: Be sure to watch the video all the way to the end to watch Bush explain her love of Ja’mie.

Seth Green wouldn't recommend seeing 'Purple Rain' with your mom

PCPT-SETH-GREEN.jpg

Seth Green wants you to know that his new movie, The Identical, isn’t about Elvis Presley. It just uses the fact that Elvis had a stillborn twin brother as inspiration for a nature vs. nurture story revolving around musically gifted twins (both played by Blake Rayne) who are unknowingly separated at birth. “It’s a story about what you’re told your life is meant to be versus what you feel in your heart you want to be,” Green says. “It’s about the identity that you choose, not the one that’s projected on you from the teachings of your parents or their learned trauma from their parents, which I think is such an important message.”

When we invited Green, who plays a best friend/drummer, to take our EW Pop Culture Personality Test, we learned of his childhood trauma—seeing Purple Rain with his mother and being frightened by the Don Knotts comedy Hot Lead and Cold Feet. Watch the video and read the transcript below. READ FULL STORY

'Cedar Cove' star Andie MacDowell was a 'hard rocker' in high school

ANDIE-MCDOWELL.jpg

Andie MacDowell, who currently stars on Hallmark Channel’s sun-soaked series Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove, may have grown up watching Little House on the Prairie and The Waltons, but there was definitely a wild streak. After explaining that she still doesn’t sit down long enough to watch a lot of TV—unless it’s binge-watching the first season of Girls with one of her daughters —the subject turns to daughter Margaret Qualley working with Liv Tyler on The Leftovers.

 

“She went to see Aerosmith. And I did go see Aerosmith when I was in high school,” MacDowell says. “I was a hard rocker when I was in high school. Not very me now, but I was diggin’ it, big time.” What does she remember about her concert experience? “I’ve been very open and honest with my children on what not to do. I told them the truth: there are a lot of things I wish I hadn’t [done]. I was straight by the time I was in the eleventh grade—and that’s a pretty scary comment—but I did go see Aerosmith in the tenth grade,” she says. “I was not legally drinking, but I was drinking. We drank tequila, and there were three of everybody by the time I got to the concert. I went to the bathroom, and I thought it was very strange that everybody parted when I walked in. But thank goodness I got that out of my system really fast, and by the time I was in my senior year, I was making really good grades and I had my act together….We’re laughing about it now, but it really was sad. I regretted it.”

What else can you learn about MacDowell through pop culture? Watch the video and read the full transcript below. Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove airs Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on Hallmark. READ FULL STORY
