Don't think 'Song of Ice and Fire' will get finished? 'F-- you,' says George R.R. Martin

The author of the Song of Ice and Fire Saga—still unfinished nearly 20 years after the publication of its first volume, A Game of Thrones—is unbent, unbowed, and unbroken…despite the naysayers who fear that he may never complete his magnum opus.

“I find that question pretty offensive, frankly, when people start speculating about my death and my health,” Martin said matter-of-factly during a recent interview with the Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger. (Thank Uproxx for pointing it out.) “So f–k you to those people.” And yes, he punctuated that “eff off” with a chortle and a defiantly raised middle finger. (Tyrion would be so proud.)

MAC is launching a Marge Simpson-inspired makeup line

You have two reaction options here—disapproving grunt or “Woohoo!”

So, yeah: This summer, fictional housewife Marge Simpson joins a long line of boldfaced names—including, most recently, Lorde, Kelly Osbourne, and, er, Maleficent—who have inspired MAC cosmetics makeup collections. The 10-piece line includes lip glosses, false eyelashes, nail stickers, brightly colored eyeshadows (yes, there’s a bright blue) and blushes, though, curiously, none come in shades of yellow. (How can you really get the Marge Simpson look without aping her signature skin tone?) READ FULL STORY

Last week, Fault in Our Stars fans around the world were shocked by the news that the bench where Hazel and Augustus kiss in Amsterdam had been stolen.

Thankfully, those worried that they would never be able to recreate that moment IRL can rest easy—the bench is back!

Video: Who is our new favorite 'Jeopardy' loser?

That’d be American hero Ari Voukydis, a comedian and veteran improv teacher who found himself a distant second going into Final Jeopardy on Thursday’s episode. The clue category: “Science & Industry.” The answer: “In 1891, this European said, ‘Perhaps my factories will put an end to war sooner than your Congresses.'”

The correct question? That’d be “Who is Alfred Nobel?”—the Swedish armaments manufacturer who invented dynamite, then was inspired to create the Nobel Prize (for physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature, and peace) after reading his own obituary. (Truth: Stranger than fiction!) Unfortunately, none of the smartypantses playing in last night’s game could name him; fortunately, Voukydis came up with something even better.

Bill and Hillary Clinton musical coming to NY

Clinton-The-Musical.jpg

Fans already got You’re Welcome, America: A Final Night with George W. Bush; now the Clintons are getting their moment in the New York stage spotlight.

Clinton: The Musical will make its New York stage premiere as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival. The show description: “It’s hard enough being president by yourself.

Which 'Breaking Bad' reference is the tentative title for Bryan Cranston’s memoir?

With Breaking Bad behind us and Better Call Saul in front of us, right now is a tough time for Bad addicts. Sure, we can re-watch the show or even pop in a full-length documentary about it, but we can’t get back the feeling of watching Walter White put on the Heisenberg hat for the first time. We can’t re-experience the fear of watching Gus take a box cutter to a man’s throat. And there’s no way we’ll ever relive the millions of emotions that overpowered us when Jack killed Hank.

But what we can do is debate the best episodes, talk about our favorite scene of season 5, follow Aaron Paul’s every move, and await the arrival of Bryan Cranston’s memoir.

I realize that Cranston’s book doesn’t seem like a Breaking Bad-specific event. And there’s no guarantee that it is; after all, Cranson did plenty of stuff before Bad, and he’s done plenty of stuff since. Still, the actor has been vocal about how Breaking Bad was a transformative experience for him — so it’s safe to say the show will be discussed.

Now that we’ve learned the tentative title for Cranston’s book, we’re even more excited to give it a read. But first, we have a challenge for you: Can you pick Cranston’s true title out of the Breaking Bad references below? READ FULL STORY

Stephen Amell makes us want to resurrect 'Battle of the Network Stars' (paging Mark Harmon) -- VIDEO

Stephen-Amell-01.jpg

With three weeks until he starts filming season 3 of the CW’s Arrow, Stephen Amell is hitting the gym hard, and we’re all reaping the benefits, really, as he continues to post his “Superhero Workout” videos on his Facebook page and YouTube channel. They involve slo-mo. So no, you’re not the only one seeing it that way. I checked.

I had two thoughts as I viewed the videos below. First, Arrow producers must be both thrilled to have a star who works this hard — and who, fingers crossed, helps the stunt team score an Emmy nom — and nervous that he’ll injure himself. I’d make them watch the slo-mo jump into those mats in Workout #2 on loop if I ever need to torture them. READ FULL STORY

Ansel Elgort in 'Hairspray' and 'Rent,' Taran Killam in 'Evita,' and more stars in high school musicals

ansel-egort

There is nothing else to say except this: Ansel Elgort, whose charming swagger won your heart in The Fault in Our Stars, played Link Larkin in a high school production of Hairspray.

Elgort has made frequent mention of his theater (and tap-dancing) past — but the video evidence below is really just too good to be true. Not only is there proof of Elgort’s basically perfect casting as Tracy Turnblad’s well-coiffed love; there’s also footage of Elgort’s performance as Collins in a theater camp production of Rent at the famed Stagedoor Manor.

And Elgort, of course, isn’t the only celebrity who tread the theater boards as a student. In honor of these videos surfacing, we’ve rounded up a handful of other stars who were surprise dynamos in their high school musical theater programs. Let them entertain you in the clips below: READ FULL STORY

Samuel L. Jackson still has his 'Pulp Fiction' speech ready, just in case

Pulp Fiction, motherf—er; do you remember it?

On a recent visit to The Graham Norton Show, the actor revealed that he still remembers his famous speech from Pulp Fiction on Ezekiel 25:17  — cadence and all. In fact, Jackson can recite the monologue on cue, complete with a little background music. Even without the afro and gun, Jackson remains truly terrifying.

Judy Greer really wants Ben McKenzie...to date her best friend in Funny or Die sketch -- VIDEO

Being somebody’s best friend requires dedication. The best friend is going to be there through the laughter, the tears, the family drama, the relationship drama, the illnesses, the fetishes, the wardrobe malfunctions, and just about everything life has to offer. But what if being a best friend consumed all your time, and therefore, your life? Well, then you’d be Judy Greer.

OK, not literally, but in a new Funny or Die video, Judy Greer plays “the best friend” — as she’s done so well and so often in rom-coms from 2001’s The Wedding Planner to 2008’s 27 Dresses. She’s the woman who cheers from the sideline and puts her friend’s happiness before her own. Example A? She passes up an opportunity to date Matt, played by Ben McKenzie, for one reason and one reason only: so Matt can date her best friend. Oh, Judy. That tub of ice cream will never fill that Matt-sized hole in your heart.
