Randy Blythe of Lamb of God talks Sex Pistols and Will Smith movies, then sings some Pet Shop Boys

While making the rounds in support of As the Palaces Burn – the documentary, in theaters now, chronicling Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe’s legal ordeal and trial in the Czech Republic last year – Blythe and director Don Argott took a minute to sit down for a Pop Culture Personality Test. Unsurprising: Blythe loves the Sex Pistols and doesn’t see the point to writing love songs. Somewhat more surprising: He really likes the Pet Shop Boys, even though they are “the antithesis of everything that I stand for.” Watch it below. READ FULL STORY

Emily Kinney of 'The Walking Dead' takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

It’s been a pretty quiet back half of season 4 for The Walking Dead‘s Beth (who’s been featured in only one episode since she and Daryl were separated from the rest of the group), but star Emily Kinney had plenty to say about what’s coming up on the hit series — not to mention what goes down when she’s not on screen.

Kinney proved her cultural cred while taking EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test. When she wasn’t confessing a long-held “acting crush” on Leonardo DiCaprio or spitting RUN-DMC rhymes, she dropped hints about the final few eps of this season on Dead.

Watch the video below, then see what’s up next for Beth and Daryl. READ FULL STORY

Donald Faison performs 'Poison,' recites 'The Empire Strikes Back' -- VIDEO

Considering Donald Faison’s most prized pop culture possession is an autographed picture of Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian that he keeps in plastic with cardboard on both sides (and that he’s the man behind The Black Stormtrooper Saga), it’s no surprise that when asked which movie he always quotes The Exes star answers The Empire Strikes Back. Watch him recite some of his favorite lines below in our EW Pop Culture Personality Test. He also reveals his first celebrity crush, the scariest movie he’s ever seen and his go-to karaoke song (which he also performs).

Tune in for The Exes season finale Feb. 26 at 10 p.m. ET on TV Land. READ FULL STORY

Betsy Brandt takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test

Betsy Brandt was a little nervous when she came in for EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test. “I’m not so good at this [pop culture] stuff,” she explained.

The actress — who starred as Michael J. Fox’s wife on The Michael J. Fox Show this season — needn’t have worried. When she ‘fessed up to her crush on Elvis and love of The Cosby Show, she put herself firmly in great pop culture company.

As for that other show Brandt is known for? The drama isn’t over yet: Starting today, the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad are finally streaming on Netflix, meaning you can go re-watch “Ozymandias” right now. RIP, work productivity.

Before you head over to Netflix for a final binge, check out Brandt’s personality test below: READ FULL STORY

Olympics: Jamie Anderson reveals 'Team World' karaoke song, Kaitlyn Farrington and Devin Logan perform a little 'Pitch Perfect' -- VIDEO

Here’s what we learned when we invited three hardware-sporting U.S. Olympians — snowboard slopestyle gold medalist Jamie Anderson, snowboard halfpipe gold medalist Kaitlyn Farrington, and ski slopestyle silver medalist Devin Logan — to EW to take our pop culture personality test: These ladies may be fearless during their runs, but don’t ask them to sit through a scary movie. Also, THERE WAS KARAOKE IN THE MOUNTAIN VILLAGE. Anderson, however, was the only one to find it. Farrington didn’t stay in the village; Logan can’t believe she missed it.

Watch the videos below. Anderson also acknowledges being dubbed EW.com’s Olympic Stud of the Day not once, but twice.  READ FULL STORY

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje talks 'Pompeii,' takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

If you sign up to play a gladiator, you know the training is going to be pretty intense. For Pompeii‘s Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (a.k.a Lost‘s Mr. Eko) even before cameras rolled he was in “gladiator boot camp,” getting in shape alongside co-star Kit Harrington.

“When people say the word gladiator, it comes with a certain expectation,” Akinnuoye-Agbaje explained about his pre-filming training. “So you already know that you have to deliver that. The director, Paul W.S. Anderson, made it very clear that he wasn’t CGI-ing any of the bodies — everything was going to be shown. Also, he just wanted the actors to go through this grueling process because he wanted them to perform all their own fights. And I was up for it. It was a great challenge.”

After that kind of work, rocking EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test without breaking a sweat was no problem — even if he isn’t totally up-to-date on Katy Perry. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

Andrew Rannells returns to 'Girls,' reveals what show is really about (and his first celeb crush) -- VIDEO

ANDREW-RANNELLS.jpg

Elijah is back on Girls starting Sunday, and Andrew Rannells, who’ll appear in the remainder of season 3 and be a regular in season 4, couldn’t be happier about it. Elijah runs into Hannah (Lena Dunham) on the street in the Hamptons — or Hamptons adjacent — and after they make nice, she invites him and his friends (including Elijah’s new boyfriend played by Danny Strong) over to the house, where she and the girls fail to table their issues.

There may be some tense scenes in the episode, but when Rannells stopped by EW to chat, he was all laughs. Watch him share a story about a passerby telling him what Girls is really about below. Then, because we can’t get enough of him, watch the Tony nominee — who’ll play Carnegie Hall with Stephanie J. Block and the New York Pops on March 21 —  confess his first celeb crush and go-to karaoke song in the EW Pop Culture Personality Test.

And bonus! Because it’s hilarious, listen to him visit EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) and chat with Entertainment Weekly‘s Marc Snetiker about the Glee-related tweet that sent him into a rage and how he used to torture Josh Gad during The Book of Mormon. (NSFW language alert!) READ FULL STORY

Sarah-Hyland-PCPT.jpg

Sarah Hyland may be starring as Natalie in Vampire Academy (now in theaters), but the Modern Family star is definitely a zombie girl. When she dropped  by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test, we learned she’s a serious fan of The Walking Dead who considers the replica of Michonne’s Katana that her boyfriend got her for her birthday and the shovel she gave him signed by members of the AMC drama’s cast for Christmas two of her prized possessions. (They’re also Game of Thrones fans and have a replica of Robb Stark’s sword and the House of Stark shield.)

For more pop culture confessions — including Hyland’s first celeb crush, the two TV shows that have made her cry the hardest (Walking Dead and Lost spoiler alerts!), and the diva she always quotes — watch the video below. READ FULL STORY

'Workaholics' guys reveal first crushes and get to the bottom of Ace of Base lyrics -- VIDEO

Workaholics-PCPT.jpg

There isn’t much we haven’t seen Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine, and Anders Holm do on Comedy Central’s Workaholics. So sitting down for an EW Pop Culture Personality Test with their co-creator/occasional co-star Kyle Newacheck was easy — until DeVine quoted Ace of Base’s “All That She Wants.” Watch the video below.  READ FULL STORY
