Watch the 'Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D' commercial starring Robin Williams

If you occasionally find yourself humming the wondrous little tunes from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, then A) you’re such a nerd! and B) me too. Turns out that Robin William is also a fan of the Zelda franchise, as shown by a new advertisement for the about-to-be-released 3DS version of Ocarina. “The first time I saw you, I knew we’d be linked forever,” says Williams. “For you, I’d travel to the four corners of the world…I became your hero.” It seems like he’s talking to Princess Zelda…but there’s a rather lovely twist. (Also fun: Williams appears to have stolen Brad Pitt’s beard, just like just like Matthew Fox’s — it’s for his Broadway role in Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) Check out the video below: READ FULL STORY

Can you spy Bruce Greenwood in 'Super 8'?

There are a lot of spoilers to preserve in J.J. Abrams’ Super 8, but I have no problem telling you that Bruce Greenwood plays the “monster” that escapes the train-wreck and turns an Ohio town upside down. This isn’t exactly a Kaiser Söze breach, since Greenwood, who starred as J.F.K. in Thirteen Days and worked with Abrams on Star Trek, contributed the performance-capture work for the scary creature. The only real trace of his involvement is in the closing credits, which list his name next to a character named Cooper. But as the Montreal Gazette writes, Cooper was what Abrams and the crew named their mysterious critter. (It might be another nod to the Spielberg mythos: recall that the unreliable shark in Jaws had a name too, Bruce.) OKAY, NOW THERE ARE SPOILERS AHEAD — READ ON AT YOUR OWN PERIL: READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Rec': The many faces of Ron Swanson

To the untrained eye, the photo of “The Many Faces of Ron Swanson” may all look the same at first glance. But, much like the stern, yet complex Parks and Recreation boss himself, there are just so many layers. Sure, Ron makes the same face when he is disapproving, enthusiastic, annoyed, goofy and gleeful. But marvel at the subdued anger of his Disapproving Face and the reluctance in his Apologetic Face (we can only assume he doesn’t make that one often.) Better yet, try not to giggle uncontrollably/imagine yourself in the Tammys’ shoes when you see his Aroused Face. (Can’t Nick Offerman just submit this for Emmy consideration?) READ FULL STORY

New 'Tomb Raider' trailer features young Lara Croft... who looks exactly like Natalie Portman. (Or Jessica Biel? Or Lacey Chabert?)

Remember that wacky Final Fantasy movie, where one of the main characters looked exactly like Ben Affleck but was voiced by Alec Baldwin? There’s a similar cognitive dissonance at work in the trailer for 2012’s Tomb Raider videogame reboot, in which the iconic Lara Croft gets de-aged. (Muppet Babies-style preboots are so hot right now.) Young Croft sounds strikingly like Keira Knightley… but her face looks exactly like Natalie Portman. (Of course, Knightley used to look so much like Portman that she played her double in The Phantom Menace. Ow, my brain!)

At least, I thought she looked like Natalie Portman. Portmanologist Adam Markovitz says I’m crazy, and claims the new Croft is a dead ringer for Lacey Chabert. Meanwhile, Photo Editor/Facial Recognition Expert Connie Yu thinks she’s a digital clone of Jessica Biel. Rorschach alert! PopWatchers, which of us is right? Watch the trailer and decided for yourself: READ FULL STORY

John C. Reilly: The leading man on National Character Actor Day

“I love that people can’t place me. They don’t know my name. That’s ‘mission accomplished’ in my world.” — John C. Reilly

Today may as well be National Character Actor Day. Reilly was born on this day in 1965, while across the pond, the Brits are celebrating the talent of Jim Broadbent, who was born May 24, 1949. They might lack the name recognition of brighter stars, but it’s their unmistakable mugs that instill an authentic Everyman quality into their eclectic collection of supporting characters. Broadbent is a legendary chameleon, slipping from Harry Potter to British period indie to Bridget Jones, and he even has an Oscar, for Iris. READ FULL STORY

Baby, baby, baby, ew: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez share (another) awkward kiss

Sorry, Harold Camping, but this is what the end of the world looks like. Well, for tween girls, anyway.

During Sunday night’s broadcast of the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, Top New Artist winner Justin Bieber planted one on his ladyfriend Selena Gomez on live television, for all the world to see. Not only devastating his young female fans, but making people of all ages terribly uncomfortable. READ FULL STORY

Why are we all so scared of Ronald McDonald?

Ronald McDonald is the most terrifying inhuman creature on the face of the earth. A tall clown with hellfire-red hair who enjoys hanging out with children when their parents aren’t looking, Ronald has terrorized young people across the world for nearly five decades. Apparently, there was a time when Ronald’s shenanigans were actually somewhat amusing. Perhaps that was before he started wearing a bright yellow jumpsuit, which makes him look like a psychotic hermit on his way to mopping up a bloody crime scene. God, just look at the above picture! It’s like you can read his thoughts, and his thoughts are “I’m going to enjoy eating your brains, sonny! Yuk Yuk Yuk!” READ FULL STORY

Colin Farrell in 'Horrible Bosses': Which stars do you still find attractive when they go 'ugly'?

Yesterday, the trailer for the upcoming comedy Horrible Bosses hit the Web, and while most people were buzzing about Jennifer Aniston’s very against-type role as a sexually harassing dentist (okay, people were probably talking about that scene in which she strips down, too), it was Colin Farrell (pictured left with Jason Sudeikis) who caught my eye. Not only because it’s so unfortunately rare to see him in comedies, but because they made him look so awful. It’s no easy feat: Look at the guy normally! Granted, he’s playing a sleazy dude you wouldn’t want to touch with a ten-foot pole, but will it deter any of Farrell’s fans? Part of me doubts it: There have got to be some folks who, upon seeing that Horrible Bosses preview, thought to themselves, “Yep, still hot!”

I, for one, am guilty of still being attracted to stars when they go “ugly.” Exhibit A: Ryan Gosling during the present-day sequences in Blue Valentine. READ FULL STORY

David Hasselhoff joins 'Piranha 3DD.' I cannot wait to (Bay)watch this movie.


Imagine a future Celebrity Apprentice cast. Now, imagine them all getting devoured by man-eating fish, and you’ve got Piranha 3DD, the follow-up to 2010’s blood-and-boobs fest Piranha 3D. Just look at the actors involved: Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd, Paul Scheer, Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, and now, David Hasselhoff. Yep, that’s right: The Weinstein Co. announced Wednesday that the America’s Got Talent judge and hamburger aficionado is set to join the sequel.

But here’s where I enter a plea to The Weinstein Co. I want just one thing for the holidays this year (the film is headed to theaters in November 2011): Please, oh please, let Hasselhoff play Mitch Buchannon. READ FULL STORY

George Clooney turns 50. Which role made you first fall for him?

Oh, George Clooney, only you could pull this off looking better today — at 50 years old! — than you did in your 30s. (Then again, The Caesar didn’t help matters. Neither did this.) But, yes, you read that right: Today, the Ocean’s Eleven star and People‘s 2097 Sexiest Man Alive (I’m just speculating here, but, still, a good bet), turns a half century old. We’d love to celebrate his birthday by asking Clooney where he’s discovered the fountain of youth, but we’re guessing he’s busy pranking Brad Pitt while picking out roses for his Italian girlfriend in his Lake Como villa while riding a unicorn and saving 10 newborn kittens. (Yes, in my head, he’s the Old Spice guy.) So, instead, we’ll celebrate his 50 years on Earth by asking you, PopWatchers: When did you first fall in love with Clooney? READ FULL STORY
