Was Jeff Bridges really supposed to play Batman and Indiana Jones?

So there is this list on the internet that apparently contains every role Oscar winner Jeff Bridges has turned down in his career. And if you were to believe everything you read on the internet (and why wouldn’t you, right?), then Bridges was beaten out by Richard Gere twice—for An Officer and a Gentleman and Pretty Woman—and that audiences could have been “talking to” Bridges instead of Robert DeNiro in Taxi Driver. While promoting his new film The Giver, the actor sat down with EW‘s Matt Bean for a Sirius XM Town Hall Meeting and cleared some things up. READ FULL STORY

Idina Menzel isn't the only mom who sings 'Let it Go'

We don’t mean to burst your Frozen bubble, but Idina Menzel doesn’t sing “Let it Go” to her 4-year-old son Walker all the time. “He tells me to shut up,” Menzel tells EW Radio’s Julia Cunningham and Mario Correa with a laugh. “He’s, like, over it. He doesn’t want to hear me sing.” Instead, he and his mother, currently on Broadway in If/Then, make up their own songs at bath time.

Even more adorable: Her son gets confused when he tells other kids that his mom sings “Let it Go,” and they insist, “So do our moms.” READ FULL STORY

Listen to Anson Mount read a scene from 'The Breakfast Club'

Fans of Anson Mount know him as Bohannon on the AMC Western Hell on Wheels. But they may have also heard that he’s a huge fan of The Breakfast Club. EW had, which is why we asked him to perform a classic Bender-Claire scene with us when he popped by Entertainment Weekly Radio. It’s the best NSFW thing you’ll hear all day.  READ FULL STORY

Listen: Kate Hudson shares her favorite 'Overboard' lines and so much more

Kate Hudson stopped by EW Radio’s “Bullseye” hour Tuesday to promote her new movie Wish I Was Here. Hosts Adam Markovitz, Tim Stack, and Tanner Stransky also got her chatting about so much more—dressing like a Game of Thrones Wildling last Halloween, why she gave up playing soccer, her mother Goldie Hawn’s best lines in Overboard, and her 10-year-old son Ryder’s friendship with Danny McBride. Listen to the full interview below. READ FULL STORY

Lisa Whelchel doesn't remember 'Facts of Life' lyrics, George Clooney kiss

Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth reunion, move over. The Facts of Life alums Lisa Whelchel (Blair) and Kim Fields (Tootie) have reteamed to play wedding coordinators in a Hallmark Channel original movie, For Better or For Worse, which premieres July 19 at 9 p.m. ET. When Whelchel stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105), EW Morning Live’s Jessica Shaw and Dan Snierson asked her to sing the Facts of Life theme song. And when she failed to remember more lyrics than Shaw, they asked her to compensate by sharing a secret from the set. It turns out George Clooney wasn’t that memorable of a kisser. READ FULL STORY

Larry King talks the one day he'd like to do over (and giving up pot) -- LISTEN!

He may be good friends with Snoop Dogg, but Larry King is getting nothing but a contact high these days. Visiting Entertainment Weekly Radio on Wednesday, King was asked if he shared a joint with another famous toker, Willie Nelson, who recently appeared on Larry King Now. The answer is no, because King hasn’t smoked pot or cigarettes since his 1987 heart attack. He discusses both habits in the clip below.

“I never smoked pot again. Not because I didn’t like it. I thought pot was terrific, and I think it has medicinal value,” he tells EW Morning Live hosts Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw. “[But] because I feared that if I put it in my mouth and blew smoke out, I would get back to cigarettes again. If I had one day in my life to [do] over again, it would be the day I started smoking. I regret that, and I paid a price for it.”

Quitting smoking was surprisingly easy for him, King says. “Once that heart attack happened, a psychiatrist friend told me that I literally got scared to death. I never picked up a cigarette again, never reached for one.” READ FULL STORY

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

Samuel L. Jackson talks to EW Radio about picking his lightsaber, fighting Twitter trolls -- VIDEO

Samuel L. Jackson has been enjoying his time as Nick Fury in the Marvel universe, now appearing in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Jackson sat down with Entertainment Weekly editor Matt Bean for a SiriusXM Town Hall and told the crowd about the time he found out what his character’s role in the new Star Wars films would actually be before he even got a script. Jackson also commented on the pros and cons of Twitter, why and how it’s changing the way actors are hired for work in Hollywood, and the fun he has sharing pics from around the world.

Kathie Lee Gifford and Ramona Singer have a few things in common. They are both successful women working and living in New York City and they’ve both taken their love of wine to the next level by starting their own brands. But that doesn’t mean the Today show host knows who the Real Housewives of New York City star is! Gifford stopped by SiriusXM’s EW Radio for TV Editors Hour, and in a chat with Jessica Shaw and Tanner Stransky about her Gift wine brand, KLG recounted an awkward moment when Singer cornered her for marriage advice. Listen to the clip below:

Bill Murray insists he's 'physically dominant' to his 'Monuments Men' co-stars during EW Radio chat -- VIDEO

Bill Murray is the type of actor who really knows how to use his body to his advantage.

Murray — along with his Monuments Men co-stars George Clooney, Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bob Balaban, and Hugh Bonneville — joined People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle for an EW Radio Town Hall on Wednesday, and when he was asked about working with Balaban, Murray was quick to point out their size difference.
