Amber Riley takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test, talks 'Lion King,' more

Amber-Riley.jpg

Amber Riley has a built-in advantage when it comes to Dancing With the Stars: Her partner, Derek Hough, has won the most trophies of all the professional partners. “I’m with someone who knows what they’re doing,” Riley laughs. “It eases my mind a little bit.”

Already, the Glee alum (who’ll return for at least a few episodes of the musical dramedy this season) is wowing the judges, perhaps because she knows what they’re looking for. “I’m a huge fan of Dancing With the Stars,” Riley told EW prior to the start of the season. “I was really nervous, but I don’t want to ever live in a place where I’m just too scared that I don’t at least try. I’ve always enjoyed ballroom dances, and I’ve been watching it since I was a kid, so to be able to do this is a fun dream come true. I don’t need to do it professionally, it’s just for fun.”

Watch Riley take EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test below, where she shares what movie she always has to watch when it’s on TV and why Lion King makes her cry (Stars! They’re just like us!)

Ask Chris Colfer for his favorite villain in children’s entertainment, and he can’t help but pick the titular character from the second book in his The Land of Stories series, The Enchantress Returns: “I purposely tried to make her a little bit of all the classic villains,” he says of evil Ezmia, who resurfaces long after cursing Sleeping Beauty to strike fear in the fairy-tale world and beyond. “I say she’s deliciously evil.”

Also wicked: Colfer’s sense of humor when he recently stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video below. READ FULL STORY

'Glee' stars 'leaning on each other' on set following Cory Monteith's death

The stars of Glee got back to work last week following a month of mourning their late castmate Cory Monteith, who died July 13 from a combination of heroin and alcohol. For Harry Shum Jr., who plays Mike Chang on the show, being surrounded by people who love Monteith is just what the cast needed.

“We’ve all been leaning on each other. It’s been a rough patch and a rough time,” he told People magazine on Saturday. “I don’t know when that will ever end, that rough patch of losing a friend like that. It’s so unexpected, but we’re all leaning on each other.”

Before returning to work, the cast and crew gathered July 25 to pay tribute to the actor, who made his name playing Finn Hudson on Glee. Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester) said that memorial was a necessary part of their grieving process.

Taye Diggs, Idina Menzel put 'Wicked'-ly adorable new twist on 'I'm Not That Girl' -- VIDEO

Broadway power couple Idina Menzel (Wicked) and Taye Diggs (Rent) were so grateful for one woman’s support of A Broader Way, their performing-arts charity for under-served communities, that they decided to thank her in the best way they know how: with a song!

For the thank-you tune, Menzel, who also plays Rachel Berry (Lea Michele)’s mom on Glee, chose “I’m Not That Girl,” one of her standout numbers from Wicked, but this time, it had the added bonus of her dreamy husband beatboxing in the background. The cell phone video was recorded at the airport, with the couple crouched in a corner, singing/beatboxing as quietly as possible — but we’re guessing their fellow Delta loungers wouldn’t have minded an impromptu performance from the talented twosome. Check it out below:

Darren Criss talks Cory Monteith: 'We're picking up the pieces now'

Darren Criss stopped by Conan last night, where the actor shared his memories about his late co-star and “dear friend” Cory Monteith. His remarks join Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele and other Glee cast members who have weighed in since the actor’s untimely death July 13.

Calling him a “wonderful guy,” Conan O’Brien asked Criss how the cast was holding up. “Obviously it’s been a very rough time,” Criss shared. But the actor tried to look forward, explaining, “We’re picking up the pieces now and there’s two things you got to remember about Cory: One, he was a really funny guy. He had a great sense of humor; he loved life. He always took care of his friends, he wanted his friends to be happy, so it’s only right that we try and start to smile again, try and laugh again. It’s something he would have wanted.”

He continued, “On a personal note, he will be severely missed but I’m just happy that a guy like him got to touch as many lives as he did while we were all lucky enough to have him.”
