As fans of Hawaii Five-0 prepare for another action-packed season finale with the return of both Wo Fat (Mark Dascascos) and Ian Wright (Nick Jonas), spoilers may be tough to come by. But when Daniel Dae Kim stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test, we definitely got him talking… about the song he can rock in karaoke, the movie he always quotes, that time his father thought Monty Python and the Grail was a serious retelling of the King Arthur tale, and a little lie told to him while he was filming the Lost series finale.

'Arrow' star Colton Haynes explains why 'Annie' is the scariest movie he's ever seen in our Personality Test -- VIDEO

Arrow‘s Colton Haynes has been missing out on the action as of late — but with Slade’s Mirakuru army taking over the city, we’re hoping  it’s only a matter of time until Roy is venom-less and back in a red hoodie.

While you wait for tonight’s sure-to-be-epic episode, we’ve got a little something to hold you over. EW recently put Haynes in the hot seat for our Pop Culture Personality Test, during which he revealed that Christina Aguilera was his first celebrity crush, and that his go-to karaoke songs are “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding and “Smooth” by Matchbox Twenty. Why Matchbox Twenty? “You do the air guitar in between and that always gets you more points, so if you don’t sound good, at least you look good,” Haynes explained.

To find out more about the actor, watch his Personality Test below, in which he reveals the movie he always quotes and the boy band he (sort of) auditioned for:

Minnie Driver reveals her crush on Blondie (the whole band!), fear of 'Evil Dead' -- VIDEO

Minnie Driver’s character on NBC’s About a Boy may not know a lot about pop culture, but when Driver stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test, she easily proved she was a pro, sharing stories about a longtime love of Blondie and why Tootsie always makes her laugh.

Also making her giggle these days? Her About a Boy character. “I just thought it was very funny,” Driver explained about what attracted her to the show. “She’s very fragile, and I thought it was a different type of character [than you] normally see on television. You don’t see many fragile hippies on network television in America, and I thought that might be an interesting thing to try and crack.”

In the season 2 finale of The Following (Monday at 9 p.m. ET on Fox), twins Mark and Luke (Sam Underwood) turn the tables on Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), who’ll have to work together to save Claire (Natalie Zea). Underwood has been so convincing in the roles, he’s been known to put fans on edge – including a security guard in the Time-Life Building when he popped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test (watch it below): “He looked at me kinda like, ‘He’s a dodgy character who could have something dangerous in his bag’ as he was scanning my stuff,” Underwood says. “Then he looked up at me and went, ‘Are you…,’ and I said, ‘Yeah.’ As soon as he realized I play a psychopath serial killer twin, then he was fine with it.” READ FULL STORY

Nikki Reed and Fran Kranz discover mutual love of Leonardo DiCaprio -- VIDEO

Any story that centers around a murder of a cat and is a comedy is going to be a little offbeat.

But that kind of tone was exactly what attracted Nikki Reed (Twilight) and Fran Kranz (Cabin In The Woods) to Murder of a Cat, which is screening this weekend as part of the Tribeca Film Festival. When someone murders his beloved cat, Clinton (Kranz) demands justice. Taking it upon himself to solve the case, he teams up with an unlikely ally, Greta (Reed), and the two set out to find the culprit lurking in their small suburban town.

“I was really attracted to the script,” Reed explained about the 2010 Black List script. “My favorite part was coming in and reading for the part and seeing the kind of chemistry [Fran and I] have in our scenes. Greta was such a real departure from anything I’ve done before, and I definitely liked that aspect of it.”

“It’s such an original script,” Kranz continued. “And I’d never played anyone like Clinton. He’s a thirty-year-old man who lives with his mom and his best friend is a cat. Where as [in real life] mine is a dog [laughs].”

The goofy banter between the two co-stars continued when they took EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test together — and discovered a mutual early crush on Leonardo DiCaprio. Watch below:
