Rebel Wilson wigs-up as Jennifer Lawrence's twin sister in bonus MTV skit -- VIDEO

So Rebel Wilson had kind of a rough time hosting the MTV Movie Awards last night, though one of her best moments came courtesy of other people’s buzz. And it turns out there was more of that. As this axed sketch shows — in which, True Life-style, we follow a day in the life of Katherine Lawrence, Jennifer’s twin sister and semi-professional shade-thrower — Wilson had a 2-minute answer to everyone who tuned in asking, “Where’s J-Law?”

Why was it cut? (Apparently the ceremony was running over into The Show with Vinny.) Who does Wilson’s wigs? At what point do the references to “boob meat” and boners tip her comedy formula from “screwball-nasty” to “day-old and gross”? Take a look and wonder after the jump.


Michael Fassbender has a really good time being Michael Fassbender -- PHOTO

A few photos from the London after-party for the premiere of A Dangerous Method have been making the rounds on the Internet. And, based on the images, it appears Michael Fassbender very much enjoyed himself at the event. (I’m particularly fond of the one in which he’s tinkering around on a piano, but the waltz with co-star Viggo Mortensen is pretty amazing in its own right.) UK tabloid The Sun initially reported that the actor “was politely asked to leave ” and “was becoming a bit of a handful for the other guests.” (Insert “handful” joke here.) But according to GQ‘s Olivia Cole (GQ hosted the bash) via her Twitter, the drunk Fassbender tale (which claimed he ” lit a cigarette indoors and that was the point it had gone too far”) was “complete fiction” and that ” no one was asked to leave early.” Despite these photos, I tend to believe Cole here, as no one in their right mind would ask Michael Fassbender to leave early.

Pat Sajak drunk behind the 'Wheel': Can you get a DUI for that?

Pat Sajak may have seen more than just the Wheel spinning during his time hosting Wheel of Fortune.

In an interview with ESPN2’s Dan Le Batard, the longtime game show host admitted that he and wing-woman Vanna White used to hit the bar for margaritas during two-and-a-half-hour breaks filming the show.

“Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet,” said Sajak. “They’re really great tapes to get a hold of.”

While the Internet scrambles to come up with as many puns as possible (and searches YouTube incessantly for these clips), one can envision the hidden gems in old episodes, seen through the lens of this new revelation. With his Confucius-like knowledge of wordplay and a physique like an aging Ken doll, Sajak has been a constant source of entertainment on Wheel since 1983. I can only imagine how much more wonderful the viewing experience would be if I had known that Sajak and Vanna were _bsol_tely w_sted. Perhaps Vanna stumbled on her way to revealing a very witty ‘Before and After’ while Sajak told each contestant how much, no, really, how much I love, no really, man, I love you.

“I have no idea if the shows were any good,” said Sajak. “But no one said anything, so I guess I did OK.”

Well, at least he remembers two letters.

Rebecca Black, Justin Bieber, and Herman Cain top 2011 Google search lists


Santa knows what you’ve been Googling all year now, too: According to ABC News, Google released their lists for the top searches in the U.S. for 2011 and Rebecca Black, Justin Bieber, Herman Cain, and the art of planking all ranked the highest in their respective categories, Fastest Rising Searches of 2011, Most Popular People, Fastest Rising Politics Searches, and Fastest Rising Google Image Searches. (In other words, America is officially placed on the naughty and Do Not Call list.)

Fueled by the I-Can’t-Believe-This-Is-Real YouTube phenom that was the “Friday” video (and perhaps some fact-checking to find out if, in fact, “Tomorrow is Saturday and Sunday comes afterward”) newcomer Rebecca Black was no. 1 Google’s Fastest Rising Searches of 2011 list, beating out Google’s own Google+ and topping  some of 2011’s most newsworthy names including Ryan Dunn, Casey Anthony, Adele and Steve Jobs.  Here’s the full list: READ FULL STORY

FunnyOrDie's '80s super agent Warren Klein leaves a new voicemail for Christian Slater -- LISTEN

Hollywood super-agent Warren Klein is back… and he’s got some distressing news for Christian Slater. A new 1980s voicemail from the awesome, albeit fake, Benihana-loving, straight-shooting Klein — who has previously called up clients like Jami Gertz, C. Thomas Howell, Kirk Cameron — has been unearthed, warning the Gleaming the Cube star about the release of rival skateboarding flick, Thrashin‘. (“The trades are gonna eat this up! Two action-packed romantic skateboarding epics in the same quarter!”) Of course, we all know now that Thrashin‘ was released in 1986, while Gleaming the Cube was released in 1989, but that’s not even Klein’s best dead-wrong but well-meaning prediction. Some gems: The Goonies‘ Jonathan Quan would star in The Last Emperor, Josh Brolin is a “dud.” But he’s right about one thing: There’s only one Mike Winslow.

This Week in Alec Baldwin: An airplane exit, a non-apology apology, and an 'SNL' appearance

It’s been nearly a week since actor/activist/American treasure Alec Baldwin was kicked off of an American Airlines flight after a dispute with a crew member over his refusal to stop playing Words with Friends on a hand-held electronic devise. In addition to ignoring FAA regulations, Baldwin reportedly made a scene by slamming the bathroom door on the plane and became aggressive and rude to the staff. (That’s right, Jack Donaghy went and pulled a Tracy Jordan.) For most celebrities, a headline-grabbing stunt like that would be enough to get them through the week, if not the entire holiday season, but then again, Alec Baldwin is no ordinary celebrity.

This Week's Cover: Stars' Worst Movies! We list the most embarrassing films A-listers ever made

Like you, we like movie stars. We flock to see their films, cheer when they win Oscars, and memorize their famous lines. But sometimes they forget to return the love, cranking out movies that are so god-awful we’re left slack-jawed, wondering how the hell the things ever got made. We’re not talking about high-profile trainwrecks like Ben Affleck’s Gigli or George Clooney’s Batman & Robin. We’re talking about the under-the-radar pieces of celluloid dreck that, more often than not, limp straight to DVD and quickly vanish into out-of-print oblivion.

For instance, did you know that Johnny Depp once played a horny teen in a sex-romp called Private Resort? Or that Sandra Bullock made sweet jungle love in a cheap adventure called Fire on the Amazon? Or that Brad Pitt played a lovelorn high school jock in a move called Cutting Class? If you did, then we salute you. If not, then boy, are you in for a treat. We went back and unearthed the lamest, most ridiculous films your favorite A-List stars ever appeared in — and we giddily share with you all the hilarious highlights. Such as how Paul Rudd, as a peroxide-blond in Gen-Y Cops, chases a robot through Hong Kong and utters the line, “Roseanne Barr Arnold will be the President of the United States before you two punks see the light of day,” and how Ryan Reynolds’ facial hair changes from scene to scene in a raunchy American Pie knockoff that’s honestly called Coming Soon.

Forget roasting, brining, or deep-frying. This Thanksgiving, we bring you 24 turkeys that are delicious all by themselves.

For the full helping of Stars’ Worst Movies, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands now.

Kim Kardashian defends her marriage -- pre-split -- in new 'Marie Claire' cover story

It used to be starlets couldn’t do bridal photo shoots before walking down the aisle for fear of the wedding being called off before the issue hit stands. Now maybe they’ll have to not give cover story interviews about their marriages until at least three months has passed. Kim Kardashian graces Marie Claire‘s December issue and, in an interview conducted a few weeks after her wedding to Kris Humphries, defended their rush to the altar: “We felt like, ‘Why wait?'” she said. “It’s fun to have a partner who understands your life and lets you be you.” She insisted everything was fine between her and Humphries despite tabloids already reporting problems: “I feel like where we’re at right now is the best time in my life,” she said. She proclaimed her faith in their bond: “I’m not worried about him at all,” she said. “We have a lot of trust, and I don’t think either of us would do anything to break that. It makes life so easy. He’s such a good guy; he is so down-to-earth, and it’s such a reality check. He is a normal guy, and I just want to chill out and be normal and not get glammed up all the time. He gets it. Sometimes my life can be really intimidating for people, but he allows me to work and do what I’ve gotta do.”  READ FULL STORY

Harold Camping apologizes for once again messing up our Rapture plans

Seemingly always-surprised prophesier Harold Camping may have finally realized the old adage “If at first you don’t succeed…” doesn’t necessarily apply to him. After two fake-outs regarding the end of days (his first Rapture prediction was back in May and then rescheduled for October) Camping apologized once more to his followers in a Family Radio address on Oct. 28.

ChristianPost.com posted a transcript of Camping’s apology (which is for the best, because in my head it sounded something like this) in which he stated, “Why didn’t Christ return on Oct. 21? It seems embarrassing for Family Radio. But God was in charge of everything. We came to that conclusion after quite careful study of the Bible. He allowed everything to happen the way it did without correction. He could have stopped everything if He had wanted to.” READ FULL STORY
