On Sunday, The Good Wife closes its fourth season with a finale that Josh Charles promises will set the show up nicely for the fall. “Things are gonna get very complicated, in a good way,” he says. We believe him: There’s that promo that shows Diane (Christine Baranski) busting Will (Charles) and Alicia (Julianna Margulies) in a liplock. We know Cary (Matt Czuchry) continues maneuvering to start his own firm. And Alicia, Will, and Diane face off against Patti Nyholm (Martha Plimpton), in front of Judge Abernathy (Denis O’Hare), in a series of emergency court proceedings after Zach believes he’s witnessed vote tampering on the night of Peter’s gubernatorial election.
Charles took the Fifth on giving us spoilers, but he did happily submit to an EW Pop Culture Personality Test — revealing the TV shows that make him cry, something from his childhood he lost and wishes he still had, his geekiest possession, his first concert, and more. READ FULL STORY »

Big Bang Theory
Big Bang Theorywill hit the stage at PaleyFest tonight, but tonight’s event is also a special one.
It marks the first time a Paley panel will be streamed live from select theaters across the country. (See participating theaters close to you here.) To celebrate the occasion, EW asked Kunal Nayyar to participate in our Pop Culture Personality Test.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Before we start, how are you feeling about being on the big screen?
Kunal Nayyar: At this point I can only speak for myself. It doesn’t make me nervous. If it was just me, and it was all this big stuff, it would probably make me nervous. But having the cast and producers there, [it will] feel like we’re just hanging on set. There’s a kinship and a friendship [among us]. We’re a family, so when we’re all on stage together, it’s just fun and a chance for people to see how we are off-screen.
Well, appropriately, I’ll start off your quiz with a movie-themed question: What was the last movie you saw on the big screen?
Argo. I loved it. I don’t think I’ve met anyone who doesn’t love it. READ FULL STORY »
Samm Levine makes his return to TV tonight on NBC’s Do No Harm, playing the plucky assistant to Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale), a doctor who suffers from a severe case of split personality.
And to celebrate the show’s premiere, which takes place tonight on NBC (10 p.m. ET), former Freaks and Geeks actor took some time to take EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test. What we learned? Even after all these years, the actor still makes us proud to be geeks.
What’s the last TV episode that made you cry?
Oh, gosh. Maybe the last episode of Lost? I was just sad it was over.
Were you a big Lostie?
BIG Lostie. That’s the only show I’ve ever appeared on unbilled.
Yeah. Damon Lindelof is a friend and he knew it was my favorite show in the world. He’d done six seasons of the show and had nothing for me. Finally, as they were finishing up, I was like, ‘Look, am I going to be on this show or not? It’s my favorite show in the world. What have you got for me?’ And he was like, ‘Look, listen, I wrote you the silliest little part, but if you want to do it, come out to Hawaii and shoot it. It’s yours.’ I said ‘Absolutely.’ So I’m in it for a split second; I play a clerk who works at Mr. Cluck’s. I’m not credited, and I got to wear the Mr. Cluck’s uniform. It was such a super fun gig for a crazy Lost fan. READ FULL STORY »
Playing diner owner Han Lee on the ribald 2 Broke Girls, Matthew Moy has one very memorable role on the CBS comedy. That’s mostly because the show’s creators have been criticized for making Han one big stereotype after another: The character speaks with a heavy accent, often doesn’t understand American slang and turns of phrases, and is regularly made fun of for his small stature and clueless nature.
Behind the silly role, however, is Matthew Moy, an actor who, truly, couldn’t be further from who he plays on TV. Moy is very clued into pop culture, which is why we put him through the ringer with the EW Pop Culture Personality Test. As we head toward tonight’s new episode of 2 Broke Girls (9 p.m. on CBS!) — titled “And Too Little Sleep,” which finds Han and Co. helping Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) prepare a huge cupcake order — study up on Moy by hearing a lot about his love for Katy Perry, Steel Magnolias, and (yes, really!) the ceramic statue of Jeri Ryan he has in his living room.
Name a TV show that makes you cry.
Actually, there was an episode of Taxi that was really emotional, and I didn’t expect it because it’s a sitcom. Danny DeVito had a very emotional scene, and it was really great. I didn’t expect that from a comedy. It had a lot of heart to it. I was watching it late at night and he had a really meaty scene.
At what moments do you yell at the TV?
I was thinking about this the other day. When I yell at my TV, it’s usually watching…usually it happens during the election. There’s when I’m watching CNN and MSNBC.
What kind of sitcoms do you watch?
I watch the weirdest things. I watch old episodes of Golden Girls because my mom watches it, so I grew up watching that. Sometimes I watch reruns of Futurama, which is a cartoon and not based in the real world at all. There’s also 3rd Rock from the Sun. It’s really neat to watch the different people interact.
Maybe it’s just because it’s how we decide who we’re compatible with, but we’ve always thought date conversation on The Bachelor should include important questions like, “What’s the movie you have to watch every time you spot it on cable?” and “Name a guilty pleasure song on your iPod.” You want to know if the answer is Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA,” which, in the case of Bachelor Sean Lowe, IT IS.
Watch his video EW Pop Culture Personality Test below. Bonus: We also found out what he does off-screen to prepare for rose ceremonies. READ FULL STORY »
