Funny or Die spoofs 'Divergent' with Michelle Obama, Chloe Grace Moretz

michelle-obama.jpg

Let’s face it: Divergent is a fictional story. But if an apocalypse doesn’t seem realistic, what about a snackpocalypse? Sadly, a snackpocalypse is much more realistic.

And that’s the basis of a new Funny or Die video that features Chloe Grace Moretz, Tyler Posey, and, just because it can, Michelle Obama. In Snackpocalypse, Moretz plays the heroine destined to stand out amongst the factions of Pizza Pals, Pop Rockers, Hufflepuffs, and more when her peers abandon healthy food for junk food. And because every reluctant heroine needs a push, Posey (and his alleged back tattoos) shows up to encourage Moretz on her journey to stop everyone from eating all the junk food and, you know, try an apple every now and again.

As for the First Lady? Well, she’d just rather watch Frozen again.

Watch Benedict Cumberbatch complete the Ice Bucket Challenge naked

CUMBERBATCH-ICE-BUCKET.jpg

Today’s the day. Today is the day when the internet might actually implode. Not only has everyone’s favorite internet boyfriend, Benedict Cumberbatch, joined the trend and completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but he did it more than once … and one time, he did it naked.

After being nominated three times for the challenge, Cumberbatch completed it sitting down, in the shower, in a suit, on his motorcycle, and on his way to his car. In other words, he completed it in a T-shirt, naked, a suit, a leather jacket, and a white T-shirt.

Watch the hilarious ALS Ice Bucket Challenge blooper reel

ice-bucket-challenge

At this point, celebrities like Chris Pratt and Lady Gaga have made the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge look easy. But in case it wasn’t clear before the challenge, celebs are not always just like us.

For a number of ordinary citizens, there’s nothing simple about filling up a bucket (or a trashcan) with ice cold water and dumping it on themselves/someone else/from a balcony. In other words, America’s Funniest Home Videos needs to donate some money to ALS as a nice thank you for the number of quality bloopers this fundraising effort has provided.

From scared dogs to weak children (no offense) and every clumsy person in between, watch a compilation of what is now trending as #IceBucketFail below:

5 Australian pop-culture imports you should know

Sick of explosion-filled blockbusters and snoozy summer reality TV? Here’s a solution: Try looking to the Southern Hemisphere to fill your entertainment needs. Several EW staffers have fallen under the spell of Australian TV and music, especially Josh Thomas’s charming comedy Please Like Me (which returns to Pivot on Friday at 10:30 p.m. ET).

And it’s not just people who write about this stuff for a living: A friend of mine is obsessed with Dance Academy, a teen drama that’s exactly what it sounds like (and is available for streaming on Netflix). Another swears by Australia’s Next Top Model, which has supposedly produced more successful models than its American counterpart. And then there’s Iggy Azalea, the New South Wales-born rapper whose music has been inescapable for months (even if plenty of writers refuse to admit that “Fancy” is 2014’s Song of the Summer).

Want to jump on the bandwagon, or however they say that expression in Australia? Here are some of the best wonders Down Under has to offer right now: READ FULL STORY

Watch Uzo Aduba teach Conan O'Brien how to make 'crazy eyes'

On Monday night, the cast of Orange Is the New Black went on its first-ever late-night appearance as a group when stars Kate Mulgrew, Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Jason Biggs, Laverne Cox, and Lea DeLaria joined Conan O’Brien to talk about their hit Netflix show.

Perhaps the highlight of their appearance was Aduba revealing the secret to Crazy Eyes’ signature facial expression. But when she tried to talk O’Brien through the process of making his eyes pop like Aduba’s do on the show, he looked less crazy and more creepy and confused.

What does an episode of 'Friends' look like without any jokes?

Taking the jokes out of an episode of Friends it like taking the meth out of an episode of Breaking Bad—it’s just wrong. And if you take the jokes out of season six’s “The One with the Apothecary Table” specifically, laughter is quickly replaced with judgment, Pottery Barn hatred, and Joey’s girlfriend Janine Lecroix, who’s just as annoying as when there were jokes involved.

The show still manages to be funny, however, because the writing wasn’t the only thing making viewers laugh. Watching Monica hit Janine with a trash bag will never be anything but immensely satisfying.

Here's Benedict Cumberbatch with a penguin

We could tell you that Benedict Cumberbatch is making his first-ever Comic-Con appearance this week.

We could explain that he’s a voice talent in the upcoming film The Penguins of Madagascar, which comes out in November.

But none of that is actually necessary to appreciate the simplicity of this photo. It’s Benedict Cumberbatch with a penguin, and that’s pretty much everything you need to know.

'Better Call Saul' has a real-life billboard, working phone number

Fans expect a lot from Better Call Saul. Since the show takes place before, during, and after Breaking Bad, it’s got countless opportunities to showcase familiar faces (beyond Mike, who’s a series regular). Then there’s the smaller stuff: We want to see Saul with ridiculous hair, a bluetooth in his ear, and maybe a questionable massage appointment every once in a while. But as it turns out, Saul diehards have already gotten one of their wishes: the billboard. READ FULL STORY

You can't donate to Jon Stewart's CNN Kickstarter, but you can laugh at it

Lets-Buy-CNN.jpg

Bad news, everybody: Jon Stewart isn’t actually launching a Kickstarter campaign to buy CNN, despite what last night’s Daily Show might have you thinking.

The joke drive came up during a segment about Rupert Murdoch’s recent bid to purchase Time Warner. If the deal had actually happened—or if it does happen eventually—Time Warner would be forced to sell off its subsidiary CNN, since the news net’s work conflicts with that of News Corp’s own Fox News. (Though fans of both CNN and Fox would probably balk at the comparison.)

But who would buy CNN in this hypothetical situation? That’s where you come in. READ FULL STORY

Here's what to do when Walder Frey shows up at a wedding

The essential ingredients for a wedding, as any Game of Thrones fan knows: something old, something new, something borrowed, something definitely not red.

The Red Wedding, technically a celebration of the marriage of Edmure Tully and Roslin Frey, is much better known as the site of one of the series’ most bloody massacres. So when Reddit user alip_93, a professional photographer, was hired to snap photos at the wedding of actor David Bradley’s daughter, he knew there would be a photo op with the guy who engineered the deaths of (spoilers) Robb, Catelyn, and many other heroes of the North:
