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:

Tom Hiddleston's best musical moments -- VIDEOS

It’s official: Tom Hiddleston’s musical talent will no longer be confined to soundstages or the passenger seat of a car. His voice is going to be heard by all when he takes on the role of country star Hank Williams in Marc Abraham’s I Saw The Light.

In honor of his new venture and also because it’s Friday, we’ve rounded up some of Hiddleston’s best musical moments (with a little dancing bonus —  because if this movie doesn’t take advantage of his rhythm, it might as well be a crime): READ FULL STORY

'Community' coming back? Hulu should revive these shows, too

Remember the days when network cancelations felt absolutely irreversible? I’m sure networks do. But a world with Kickstarter, Netflix, Hulu, social media, and all things interactive, cancelation has morphed from a death knell to a possible new beginning.

As Veronica Mars fans know, if you want more of your favorite story, it’s not impossible to get your wish — and in their case, they helped to make the revival happen. The latest example: Community getting canceled, only to be in talks for a Hulu pickup. If Community ends up getting its #sixseasons, could Hulu become TV’s newest superhero? And if so, which other shows would we like to see it rescue? READ FULL STORY

Why aren't we talking about Casey Wilson's perfect wedding dress?

Fine, we admit it: PopWatch went a little Kardashian krazy yesterday. Yet in all the hubbub over last weekend’s big Kimye-palooza — the Smash-esque wall of flowers… and the Trix Rabbit Batman costumes… and the 20-minute toasts… and the odds that it’s all going to come crashing down within a year — we neglected to mention something important: Kim and Kanye weren’t the only two celebrities to tie the knot over Memorial Day Weekend.

Both House alum Lisa Edelstein and Happy Endings star Casey Wilson walked down the aisle Sunday as well. (Edelstein wed artist Robert Russell; Wilson wed David Caspe, who created both Happy Endings and Wilson’s new NBC sitcom, Marry Me.) Each actress got married in California; each was probably ecstatic that the media’s attention was fully focused elsewhere that day.

But while Edelstein wore what appears to be a perfectly nice sleeveless gown, Wilson’s dress was white, lacy, and topped with long, romantic, semi-sheer sleeves — much like Kardashian’s own. (You know, Wedding Dress No. 5. From her third marriage.) The difference: Casey’s is so much better! Unless you’re into space lobster bibs or the dress Samantha Parkington wears to sip tea with Grandmary. Like, come on: READ FULL STORY

Memorial Day: Which pop culture cookout would you crash?

The sun is shining, the smell of summer is finally in the air…and naturally, you’re still thinking about TV and movies. Which is fine, because so are we. Specifically: Not long ago, your pals at EW had a conversation about the pop culture cookouts we’d most love to attend. Three serve pretty standard barbecue fare; two feature whole roast pigs; one makes itty bitty alligators the main course. But all feature great company, from ace Miami detective Marcus Burnett to  growly, grizzled Korean War vet Walt Kowalski to the scrappy kids who spend their days hitting homers on their local baseball diamond. (Or trying to, at least.)

Count Dracula's digs up for sale

Looking for a place to rest your thousand-year-old bones? Then we’ve got a real estate listing for you: Dracula’s castle is up for sale.

Romania’s Bran Castle, which many believe inspired Count Dracula’s residence as first seen in Bram Stoker’s novel, currently belongs to Archduke Dominic and his sisters Archduchess Maria Magdalena and Archduchess Elisabeth. But they’ve decided to put the castle on the market for a steep price — The Daily Mail reports they’re asking for 47 million Euros, which translates to about $64 million U.S. dollars.

Ser Pounce off 'Game of Thrones' (for now)

Ser-Pounce-HBO.jpg

The First Cat of Westeros isn’t coming back to HBO’s Game of Thrones anytime soon.

Ser Pounce is off the show for the rest of the fourth season, at least. The king-guarding feline sparked a social media surge after interrupting Margaery Tyrell’s quasi-seduction of teenage King Tommen on Sunday’s episode. HBO told us Ser Pounce does not appear in any of the six episodes that remain this year. (Only Game of Thrones could spark a post-episode frenzy over man raping his sister one week, followed by a cat with a cute name the next week.) That said, Ser Pounce could potentially appear in future seasons, especially since he’s in George R.R. Martin’s later Song of Ice and Fire novels.

Here’s our exchange with Ser Pounce’s very unofficial Twitter feed discussing the subject when we broke this tragic news yesterday: READ FULL STORY

Chris Pratt is an ace French braider, does not know how to spell 'braid' -- PHOTO

Eh, you win some, you lose some.

The following photo pictures actress Anna Faris — or at least, the back of Anna Faris’ head — sporting a flawless, Elsa-esque French braid. And according to the caption — written by none other than Parks and Rec star Chris Pratt, also known as Faris’ husband — the complicated hairdo was his own handiwork. Which is maybe slightly less impressive than Pratt plaiting his own hair, but still plenty impressive all the same.

Not quite as impressive: The (clearly joking) hashtags that follow Pratt’s brag about his “glorious french braid.” A sampler: “#ManBraid #RealMenBraid #isItBrade? #SpellingQuestion.” Followed, naturally, by these: “#WhyIsItFrench??? #ICallItAFreedomBraid #GoUsa.”

And suddenly, we begin to understand why Andy Dwyer is the way he is. READ FULL STORY

'Girl Meets World': You won't believe which 'Boy Meets World' alum is returning now

Will Girl Meets World bring back “baboon” as an insult?

It certainly seems that way. Over the weekend, Boy Meets World/Girl Meets World star Ben Savage posted an Instagram photo of himself with Danny McNulty, a.k.a. John Adams High School bully Harley Keiner, alongside this message: “Welcome back to our friend ‘Harley Keiner’ #GirlMeetsWorld.” The photo shows the all-grown-up McNulty, wearing what appears to be some kind of work uniform (maybe janitor?) and posing in a school hallway with Savage.

Who's the biggest monster on 'Scandal': Rowan or Cyrus?

Talk about a clash of the chatty titans.

Scandal isn’t short on unsavory characters. In this universe, torture set against a bouncy Motown tune is de rigueur; each episode features at least two or three or nine betrayals. At this point in the show’s run, practically everyone but baby Teddy Grant has killed somebody, either directly or indirectly. Still, there’s no denying that the show’s two most ruthless, dastardly, outright evil characters are White House Chief of Staff Cyrus Beene and CIA bigwig Rowan Pope.

Thursday night’s season finale confirmed that neither of these men is to be trifled with, unless you want to be blown up and/or stuck with a rare strain of meningitis on live television. But which is actually the least redeemable presence on Scandal? For that, we’ll have to consider each villain’s history in a series of categories. READ FULL STORY
