'Hollywood Game Night': Ranking the freakishly fascinating facial mashups

Screen Shot 2013-08-22 at 5.02.29 PM

On Thursday’s Hollywood Game Night, the teams (Max Greenfield, Ellie Kemper, Kal Penn, and plebian Jill vs. Kenan Thompson, Minnie Driver, Angela Kinsey and plebe Dipal) participated in a riveting round of Celebrity Fusion — in which two celebs with a common name had their faces smeared into each other and presented as art. (So basically, Conan’s “If They Mated,” but on a show with a different title.) I’m VERY ashamed of how long it took me to guess the above beauty, but at least I didn’t say “Boy George..Carlin?” like poor JIll.

Doesn’t take much to fascinate me on a summer Friday! I’m gonna rank these creatures from least horrifying to most:

10 Stars' 'Before They Were Famous' commercials -- VIDEO

One of the most charming moments of last night’s SAG awards was Jennifer Lawrence’s Best Actress acceptance speech, where she thanked MTV for allowing her to get her SAG card by casting her in a My Super Sweet 16 promo years ago.

Lawrence is far from the first now-A-lister who had to pay the bills back in the day. We rounded up some of our favorite commercials from stars who probably wish that the ubiquity of YouTube didn’t make these long-in-the-past acting jobs quite so easy to find.

We only selected commercials from prior to the stars’ big break – so no Sofia Vergara ads for Pepsi or Brad Pitt hawking Chanel No. 5 – although there is another Pitt commercial which made the cut. Check out ‘80s-era Pitt, as well as nine more “before they were famous” ads below. READ FULL STORY

What 'When Harry Met Sally...' was really about, according to Nora Ephron

In 1990, the year after When Harry Met Sally… hit theaters, Nora Ephron’s script was released as a paperback book with an 11-page introduction written by Ephron detailing how the film came about. The beauty of the Internet: You can read that intro when you “search inside this book” on Amazon. She details how director Rob Reiner told her he wanted to do a movie about two people who become friends and decide not to have sex because it would ruin the friendship, and, of course, it inevitably does. She describes in great detail the things Reiner and his producing partner Andrew Scheinman shared with her as they spent days discussing men (the way they wanted to go home as soon as sex was over, the excuses they would make up to leave). She explains how she realized Reiner — who was divorced at the time and reveling in his depression as much as Harry ultimately would — was the character she should write about. Because Harry had that “dark side,” Sally had to be light — more like Ephron (who, yes, just liked food the way she liked it).  READ FULL STORY
