'Vampire Diaries' exec producers endorse Ian Somerhalder in our Sexy Beasts Bracket Game

sexy-beast-Alex-IanWith polls set to close at midnight ET in their section of EW’s Sexy Beasts Bracket Game, The Vampire Diaries‘ Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) has a commanding lead over True Blood‘s Eric Northman with 61 percent of the vote in their quarterfinal match-up. We happened to be chatting with Vampire Diaries exec producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec this afternoon, and gave them the update. They both (eventually) endorsed Damon and explained why Katherine (Nina Dobrev) will be a contender after the Sept. 9 season 2 premiere (“Katherine in a bra, episode 1, tune in”)…

Entertainment Weekly: Damon is beating the pants off of Eric in our Sexy Beasts Bracket Game.

Julie Plec: [Gasps] Oh, we have made it!

Kevin Williamson: What?

Plec: [Explains Sexy Beasts Bracket Game to Williamson, she voted last round] Ian is beating Eric. I love it. By the way, Eric — hot.

Williamson: Eric who? From True Blood? Ohmygod. I’m sorry, I’m voting for Eric. I love Ian, but I see him everyday. [Laughs] I don’t see Eric. I can vote for Eric, right? READ FULL STORY

Lunchtime Poll: Beast-Beast or Human-Beast?

A very hairy debate has heated up in today’s Sexy Beast matchups post. Our commenter-beasts are roaring at each other within the PopWatch castle walls — shaking their manes, baring their fangs, chasing their own tails as old as time! Even I don’t know what that means.

The question: Which variation from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is hotter: Beast-Beast or Human-Beast? The answer has been so obvious to me (Beast-Beast!) for two decades that it pains me to even ask. But ask I shall, because I am truly intrigued by those of you who find Human-Beast more attractive. Explain yourselves! And before you do, please note that a quick IMDB search indicates that Human-Beast’s name was “Prince Adam” (?!) and that the weird line above his obscenely unbuttoned homeless-resortwear blouse is not an eyelash on your computer screen or a lame tattoo intended to humorously offset his one strand of jagged hair. Nope. It is cleavage. There it is.

Which celebrity do you wish followed you on Twitter?

bones-hart-hansonImage Credit: Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesThere’s nothing more thrilling than starting a Twitter. Ugh. Okay, I recognize the overstatement. Rewind: There are a lot of things more thrilling than starting a Twitter. Nevertheless, what’s more thrilling than starting a Twitter is watching my “follower” numbers climb. I’ll admit I need the validation.

Then a post over at Wonderwall got me thinking. Celebrity Tweeters were asked which other celebrity they wish followed their updates. Of all the answers, I thought James Van Der Beek gave the smartest response — he wished the Dalai Lama would follow him. If His Holiness suddenly started caring about my TV line-up, I would start referring to him “My follower, the Dalai Lama.” I really don’t think I’d need any more validation than that. (FYI – In case you’re curious, he follows no one.)

Religious leaders aside, I’d probably be most excited if Anthony Edwards started to follow me on my newly created @EWSandraG. (Shameless self promotion? Of course.) Actually, I think I’d be more thrilled to have him as a follower if he Tweeted as Dr. Greene. “Going to meet Doug for lunch at Doc Magoo’s. He’ll probably whine about Carol some more.” “Saving lives. So MUCH BLOOD!” READ FULL STORY

'Hawaii Five-0' extended preview waits 69 seconds to show Alex O'Loughlin shirtless, but who's counting!

CBS has released an extended preview of its new fall drama Hawaii Five-0 starring Alex O’Loughlin as Lt. Commander Steve McGarrett, Scott Caan as Det. Danny “Danno” Williams, Daniel Dae Kim as Chin Ho Kelly, Grace Park as Kono Kalakaua, and Jean Smart as the governor of Hawaii, who gives the task force they form full immunity and means. The trailer definitely sells the show’s strong points — the chemistry between O’Loughlin and Caan, the location that will allow O’Loughlin to occasionally change his shirt in public (I recommend producers read my 2009 open letter to showrunners of procedurals starring actors we’d like to see shirtless for inspiration), and the potential for guest stars (James Marsters is the pilot’s Big Bad). What do you think? I’ve always said Monday at 10 p.m. is the right time for a fun hour-long show that doesn’t try to be anything more than entertainment. We’re bummed to be back at work and want one more night of escapism before the week swallows us whole. My DVR will be very happy recording this and ABC’s Castle. Watch the preview below.

Is anyone in Hollywood scrappier than Mario Lopez?

mario-lopezBig news: Mario Lopez has a VH1 reality show! I mean, on the one hand, of course he does, because everyone has a VH1 reality show. If there’s ever a lull in my conversations with friends and family, I just ask “How’s your VH1 reality show?” and it always goes over really well. But honestly, if anyone “deserves” a VH1 reality show it’s probably Mario Lopez because Mario Lopez is one of the most earnest famous people I’ve ever seen.

Do you ever watch Extra? I “have to,” “for work,” and I’ll go ahead and just keep telling myself that. READ FULL STORY

CBS reminds journalists it's 'Hawaii Five-0' not 'Hawaii Five-O'

Alex-O-LoughlinImage Credit: Mario Perez/CBSThis just in: CBS has issued what it’s dubbed the shortest press release in the network’s history to remind editors that, “The ‘0’ in HAWAII FIVE-0 is a zero, not a capital O.”

What one-sentence press release would you have issued about the show? Having seen the pilot, which I enjoyed, I would have gone with, “You only have to wait 29 mins. and 53 secs. to see Alex O’Loughlin shirtless.”

'Jersey Shore' starts gearing up for season 2: Shore fever or fatigue? Should we be excited for more?

Apparently now that it’s officially summer, it’s time for us all to fall back in love with Jersey Shore. (What respectable American doesn’t love fist pumping and hot tubs?) Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino appeared on The Tonight Show earlier this week to talk about his photo spread in People (the Hottest Bodies issue, of course) and promote his teeny, tiny Jersey Shore-themed book, GTL. He shared the story of how a once pimpled, failed mortgage broker became “The Situation” (dreams do come true, kids!), but overall his conversation was kind of snoozy…he didn’t even lift his shirt! Watch the video after the jump and count how many times he used the word “situation” (“situate” counts too. Can this joke be retired?). READ FULL STORY

New 'Predators' images: Beauty (Adrien Brody's body) and the beasts

PredatorsImage Credit: Rico TorresTons of new images from next month’s Predators have hit the Web. I suppose I should be talking about how badass the Predators look, but my eye was drawn to Adrien Brody, who clearly packed on major muscle for the role. Perhaps Fox should be showcasing that fact in all trailers — not just for the ladies, but for anyone who still likes to talk about the actors’ physiques in the 1987 original. I just went to Hulu to get the clip from the “Mac and Dennis Break Up” episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia in which Dennis refuses to watch Predator again because Mac always launches into a conversation about body mass, and surprise!, the ad that played before it was Predators. Fate gets it. Watch that clip below, take a look at the photos, and tell us if Predators, produced by Robert Rodriguez and directed by Nimród Antal, now looks like it will do John McTiernan’s masterpiece, which made our list of the 25 greatest action films ever, justice.

Important World Cup poll: Is Cristiano Ronaldo hotter in underwear or jeans?

Cristiano-RonaldoImage Credit: Emporio ArmaniEarlier today, the World Cup match between Ivory Coast and Portugal ended in a scoreless draw. Coincidentally, we’ve also got a stalemate involving Portugal team captain Cristiano Ronaldo at PopWatch HQ: Is he hotter in the pictured ad for Emporio Armani Underwear or Armani Jeans? EW.com photo editor Connie Yu prefers the former: “I vote underwear, because when I look at the jean one I don’t see abs and hotness, I see eyebrows sculpted to an inch of their life.” I, however, am a bigger fan of the latter. His thighs somehow look sexier with denim clinging to them. Vote below. No draws allowed here.

Matthew Morrison at the Tonys: Watch his shirt magically open

matthew-morrison-tonysImage Credit: Kevin Mazur/WireImage.comLast night, Glee stars and Broadway vets Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele took to the stage at the Tony Awards for a special performance. Watch it below. My favorite moment is at 2:00, when a collective attempt at psychokinesis by viewers suddenly opens Morrison’s shirt. Okay, we probably failed and it was merely the effect of him hitting the dance portion of his number, “All I Need Is the Girl.” Let the record show that the man can bust more moves than spins, his signature move on Glee. (How about he get to put ‘em on display in season 2, when he’s not rapping? Just when you think he might be out of breath, he holds a note.)

I’d hoped Morrison and Michele would perform together, but they sang separately. She started in the aisles of Radio City for her rendition of “Don’t Rain on My Parade.” She sounded great, and it was sweet the way she sat on Jonathan Groff’s lap in the audience. But I think I would have been more wowed had I not previously seen it on GleeREAD FULL STORY
