'Suits' makes EW's Summer Must List -- the stars give us theirs

Entertainment Weekly‘s annual Summer Must List issue hits stands today, and readers eagerly awaiting the July 16 return of USA’s Suits will be happy to see the legal drama makes the cut. On May 15, we sat down with stars Gabriel Macht, 41, and Patrick J. Adams, 31, and asked what tops their lists. Their banter — which gets particularly enjoyable when the subject turns to their different tastes in music — may just tide fans over.

Entertainment Weekly: So what’s on your Summer Must List?
Patrick J. Adams: [Shouts] The Daft Punk album! I can’t stop listening to that.
Gabriel Macht: Season 1 of The Wire.
Adams: [Laughs] This is Gabriel’s Summer Must List from 10 years ago. READ FULL STORY

This Week's Cover: 'The Wolverine' tops your Summer Must List


Does Hugh Jackman ever slow down? From what we can report, the answer is a definitive no way, mate. For the cover story of our annual Summer Must List issue, EW visited the actor last year on the Sydney set of The Wolverine (in theaters July 26), where Jackman jumped and leapt and charmed his way through a series of seemingly back-breaking stunts that he made look as easy as pie. That’s entertainment — and who embodies the power and pop of summer in the cinema better than Jackman? READ FULL STORY

Olympic gold medalist David Boudia's Must List: AC/DC, Michael Buble, and 'Modern Family'

During Saturday night’s electrifying Olympic final in men’s 10 meter platform diving, viewers likely caught a glimpse or two of eventual gold medal winner David Boudia with a large pair of headphones latched to his head. According to Boudia, it’s more than likely that’s how he would look if you saw him anywhere else, too. “I have over 2,000 songs on my phone that travel with me everywhere, and my headphones are constantly in my ears,” the Indiana native told EW last month, the day before he was to leave for London, his second Olympics after Beijing. “I listen to music all the time. The genre of music is so sporadic that it’s so hard to apply — I listen to anywhere from rap to hip-hop to country to Michael Bublé, a lot of Christian music — all over the place.”

So what was the 23-year-old Boudia — the first American man to win gold in the event since the legendary Greg Louganis did it at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea — listening to as he prepared for his dives? READ FULL STORY

Olympics: Missy Franklin's Pop Culture Must List

There are so many reasons to cheer for Missy Franklin. Winning five medals, four of them gold, at the London Games, the six-foot one-inch 17-year-old embodies the future of USA Swimming at the Olympics. Missy’s also committed to the purity of the sport, having turned down endorsement deals and agency representation in order to retain her amateur status and compete in NCAA swimming after she graduates next year from Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colorado. Following Aurora’s tragic movie theater shooting on July 20, she dedicated her very first gold medal, in the 100 meter backstroke, to the victims–and she continues to swim competitively with her high school team. In short, Missy’s a winner in and out of the pool.

And she has great taste when it comes to pop culture too. What has Missy been watching, reading, and listening to on her quest for the gold? EW got the Olympic Champion to share, via email, her own Must List of movies, TV shows, books and music that she’s brought with her to enjoy during her down time in London.  READ FULL STORY

Must List: Sports to watch if you don't like the Olympics

The Olympics will dominate sports coverage for the next two weeks — there’s no way to get around that. But, other non-Olympic sporting events will continue business as usual. If you’re not into watching the Games in London, we’ve provided an alternative list for the next few days.


The Red Sox and The Yankees begin a three-game series in New York the same night as the opening ceremonies in London. And even though Boston ranks last in their division, a battle of the longtime rivals is always worth your attention. (For those not in Boston or New York, you can catch the third game on ESPN at 8 p.m. on Sunday.)


Must List: Catch up on this year's Emmy nominees

The nominees for the 2012 Emmy Awards were announced on July 19, and what better way to spend your weekend than catching up on the shows that you missed. We found a few ways you might be able to get up to speed on some of our favorite nominees.

Downton Abbey — Amazon Instant has the second season of Downton available for streaming (and the DVD has been available since February). The show is also on iTunes, and Netflix has season 1.


Five things to do if you're not at Comic-Con

Comic-Con kicks off today, July 12, in San Diego. And if you’re not lucky enough to be in San Diego for all the geektastic celebrations (or if you’re just not that into that kind of thing), we have the solution. Take a look at what you can be doing instead.

1. Catch up on Breaking Bad before the fifth season begins on July 15. Everyone has told you that you need to be watching AMC’s drama about a high school chemistry teacher turned meth kingpin. So why aren’t you? Thanks to this handy schedule, you still have time to see all four seasons AND watch the premiere Sunday at 10 p.m.

EW's Must List app: Now for iPhone and iPod touch!

Here at Entertainment Weekly, we have only one goal: to bring happiness and magic into the lives of our readers. We’re like Ricardo Montalban in Fantasy Island — but without the white suit, the accent, and Tattoo. It was that impulse that led us to create our Must List app for the iPad, a weekly interactive rundown of the 10 things we love this week that was heralded as “one of the best apps from a magazine to date.”

And now, we’re even more proud to present our brand-new Must List app for iPhone and iPod touch. It’s the same Must List you know and love, optimized for smaller screens. Each week, we pick the 10 movies, TV shows, books, hit singles, web videos, and more that you NEED to know about, and present them along with streaming video, audio samples, and more, so you can experience them all right in the app!

For instance, this week’s Must List features the new season of Big Brother. You can watch a video introducing all the comely new houseguests, get a virtual tour of the new house from host (and EW blogger) Julie Chen, submit suggestions to the Big Brother Saboteur, and access the latest Big Brother recaps on EW.com. And just like on the iPad version, you can sort picks by category and save your favorites to your own personalized Must List.

With EW’s app on your iPhone, you hold the entire world of pop culture in your hand. So what are you waiting for? Download it on iTunes right now!
