It’s not just finale season, it’s also the month of proms. As celebs visited EW’s video studio, we asked them for memories of their big night. Who thought they’d get lucky and didn’t? Who never actually made it to the prom after imbibing in the limo? Whose date went on to become a congressman? Watch our special PopWatch Prom Confessional below to find out.

Gillian Anderson is the world's most patient 'Breaking Bad' binge-watcher -- VIDEO


There are some things you can probably guess about Gillian Anderson, like that she still has Scully’s gravestone, which used to sit in her office but is now in storage along with an X-Files pinball machine. But the star of NBC’s Crisis managed to surprise us with her answers to our Pop Culture Personality Test. In the video below, she reveals her first celebrity crush, the song she’d karaoke (if forced to), a fear of scary movies, and a patience unknown to many.  READ FULL STORY

'Crisis' react: What would you do for your child?


Crisis could be NBC’s answer to a procedural hit.

Why? The show is backed by a high-caliber cast, some interesting twists, and enough potential storytelling to twist itself into something really explosive. Granted, none of that guarantees any success, but I will admit to being more involved than I expected to be, given the reveals of the first episode. (Let’s be honest: My main reason for tuning in to this show in the first place was my 20+ year love for Gillian Anderson, whom I will watch in anything and everything. So, it’s safe to say I was pleasantly surprised to find I actually enjoyed what I was watching.)

Anyway, let’s examine the episode. Ninety miles outside of Washington, D.C., an unnamed man is waiting for a security override on what looks like some satellites. As he waits, an FBI agent named Susie Dunn (Rachael Taylor) runs up, asking what he’s done. What has he done? That’s for the show to know, and us to find out.


Which on-screen couples do you want to get together in real life?

Despite what gossip site Celeb Dirty Laundry writes, recently single Gillian Anderson and her ex-X-Files costar David Duchovny are probably not living together. Sure, Anderson was cagey when asked by Britain’s Sunday Times Magazine if she was dating anyone new — but that doesn’t mean we should trust the conveniently anonymous source who says she and Mulder are knocking boots.

But even if there’s no credence to this rumor, reading it still gave EW’s staffers pangs of hope. In a post-KStew-RPattz world, we may never believe in love again — or at least love between co-stars. And if Anderson and Duchovny did get together, their partnership would be the culmination of years of fervent X-Phile yearning (and countless sweaty fanfics).

Mulder and Scully aren’t the only on-screen couple we’d love to see as IRL partners.  READ FULL STORY

Gillian Anderson: 'I was actually offered a part in Downton Abbey'

While chatting up her role as Miss Havisham in Masterpiece Classic’s upcoming Great Expectations in this week’s TV Guide Magazine, former X-Files star Gillian Anderson dropped an equally great tidbit: She’d been offered the role of Cora Crawley in Downton Abbey. Forget being shocked about Agent Scully living at Downton — Anderson has acted in enough English period miniseries in the last decade to make her a welcomed face in the genre (she even used to host Masterpiece Classic). And she could certainly play an excellent determined buccaneer.

But what kind of Cora Crawley would she have made? READ FULL STORY
