She may play a mean girl on TV, but Awkward‘s Molly Tarlov is nice in real life — even if you insisted on being Kelly Kapowski when you “played Saved by the Bell” with her when you were younger. She makes a few other confessions in our Pop Culture Personality Test below. (And for a Britney Spears-related admission, catch her in our special Prom Confessional.) READ FULL STORY

In the Sundance fave Obvious Child (in limited release June 6), Jenny Slate plays a comic who follows a break-up with a one-night stand, learns she’s pregnant, and struggles to tell the guy how she intends to handle it. There’s laughter and tears, but luckily, we only had the former when Slate took our Pop Culture Personality Test and revealed why Kevin Costner was her first celebrity crush, what Annie reference her mother still makes on all her birthday cards, and why Se7en is the scariest movie she’s ever seen.

The first season of HBO’s hilarious Silicon Valley comes to a close this weekend (June 1 at 10 p.m. ET, to be precise). While you wait for season 2, just keep replaying star Thomas Middleditch taking EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test.

Watch the video below for his most unconventional first celebrity crush, a spirited impression of Nic Nolte, and the self-flagellation of a 32-year-old man in a video game league. Does this officially mean he’s as nerdy as Richard? READ FULL STORY

Yael Stone of 'Orange Is the New Black' has a thing for Papa Ingalls, does a mean Sinead -- VIDEO

“Can we talk about how terrifying the words ‘personality test’ are?” asked actress Yael Stone — whom you may know best as red-lipped, self-deluded Lorna Morello on Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black — right before sitting down to take EW’s very own pop culture-slanted quiz.

Luckily, the bubbly Aussie passed our “test” with flying colors — waxing rhapsodic about the torch she still carries for Michael Landon’s character on Little House on the Prairie, singing Lauryn Hill songs from the very depths of her soul, and the sci-fi touchstone she saw way too young. (A guy with a melting face is involved.) Before the references started flying, she also opened up a bit about her character’s quirky manner of speaking, which is sort of like a 1940s moll by way of Bora Bora Bora: “It’s like a Long Island sound with some Boston vowels in there, with the ‘ahh’ stuff,” Stone explains. “I wouldn’t like to say that I’m really wonderful, like, that’s my thing — but I really like accents, and I like learning about people’s accents.” READ FULL STORY

'Fargo' star Allison Tolman is still Texas Forever (and all about 'The Little Mermaid') -- VIDEO

Allison-Tolman-PCPT.jpg

Allison Tolman was unemployed and unsure what she was going to do next with her life in Chicago when she sent in an audition tape to play Molly Solverson on FX’s Fargo. “I wore earmuffs, I think, for one of the scenes to signify it being cold, because I’m a master of my craft,” she remembers. A couple of weeks later, she heard her tape was still being considered. A couple of weeks after that, she heard it again. “I thought, ‘That’s awesome! Maybe the Chicago casting directors will get a bug in their ear and they’ll know who I am, and I’ll book a commercial for the Illinois lottery,’ which would’ve been cool.” Eventually, she got the call to come to New York and test. “I distinctly remember playing ‘Domino’ by Jessie J in my hotel room as I got ready. It’s not a Molly Solverson song at all,” she says, laughing, “but it was a good pump-me-up song.” And five days later, she finally had the part.

We got to know Tolman, a Texas native with a BFA in theatrical performance from Baylor University and Second City’s conservatory program on her résumé, when she stopped by to take our Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video below to find out which movie scene she acted out as a child (the photo may be a hint), which TV series she’ll insist you watch (Texas Forever!), and which shows helped shape her sense of humor.

Terry O'Quinn shares two very important life lessons (only one of which we had to bleep) -- VIDEO

PCPT-TERRY-O-QUINN.jpg

Lost’s Terry O’Quinn is back on TV starting May 22, starring in Fox’s gritty new show Gang Related (Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET), created by Chris Morgan, writer of The Fast and the Furious franchise since Tokyo Drift. Ramon Rodriguez (Need for Speed) is at the center of the drama playing Det. Ryan Lopez, a member of Los Angeles’ elite Gang Task Force headed by O’Quinn’s character who also has ties to one of the city’s most powerful gangs, the Los Angelicos. While Rodriguez will offer a story of memorable ride-along he did to research his role, O’Quinn just laughs if you ask him if he has one. “I let Ramon and Rza [who plays another team member] take care of all that kind of stuff,” he says. “I just sit behind the desk and let the young folks work. If you see me runnin’ up and down stairs, be surprised. It does happen once or twice.” READ FULL STORY

'Modern Family': Jesse Tyler Ferguson teases the wedding, makes a few last-minute confessions of his own -- VIDEO

Jesse-Tyler-Ferguson.jpg

On Part 2 of Modern Family‘s season finale (airing May 21 at 9 p.m. ET ABC), Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) should finally make it down the aisle. “The second episode continues on with that thread of pure chaos just trying to get this wedding to go off ,” Ferguson tells EW. “But what I’m really proud of that you’re going to see is the real emotion. The writers were really great with handling that moment of the actual wedding. They let Mitchell and Cam exchange vows. I’m sure they’ll cut around a lot of it — that language can get a little dry at times — but for us, it was really beautiful to be able to say ‘I do’ to each other and to really have that moment of being married.”

The show’s writers had a lot to live up to: “For my real wedding [to lawyer Justin Mikita last July], we had Tony Kushner officiate our wedding. He won the Pulitzer Prize and Tony for writing Angels in America and is an Academy Award nominee for writing Lincoln, so I definitely put the pressure on our writers,” Ferguson says. “I said, ‘We had Tony Kushner write our ceremony…so good luck.'”

Expect to see Mitchell and Cam’s first dance as well. “I’m not sure if the song that we actually danced to is the one that they’re going to use, but for the purposes of shooting, we were dancing to ‘At Last,'” he says. The classic Etta James version? “No. The Jesse Tyler Ferguson version,” he deadpans. “I re-recorded it. It’s available on iTunes.”

For more of Ferguson’s trademark wit, check out his EW Pop Culture Personality Test below. He reveals his first — and current — celebrity crush, what he’ll really sing if you get him karaoking, and why he’ll never live down his senior portraits.  READ FULL STORY
