'Scandal' or the White House? Tony Goldwyn visits D.C., and we compare the Oval Offices

If that desk could talk, well, it would have some very scandalous — for lack of a better word — stories. But what about this other desk: READ FULL STORY

James Franco posts almost-nude selfie on Instagram, deletes it

Today in James Franco news: The actor posted a suggestive selfie on his Instagram… and then quickly deleted it.

Franco’s no stranger to selfies — if you follow him on Twitter or Instagram, you know that he posts a variation of him lounging around in bed shirtless basically every day. But this one had the added element of his boxer briefs pulled down slightly so he could rest his hand on his, uh, Green Goblin.

'Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse' and other strange album titles

fiona-apple-when-the-pawn.jpg

Mariah Carey recently revealed that her latest album’s title is Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse. Just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?

Carey isn’t the first to name her album something totally weird and certainly, won’t be the last, so we gathered together some other memorably odd album titles — including one that Carey may or may not have used as inspiration, to put it nicely. Check out the list below:

'Supernatural': Five SPN-offs we'd like to see

Last night Supernatural aired an episode that acted as the backdoor pilot for its hopeful spin-off Supernatural: Bloodlines.

It centered on a young man, named Ennis (Lucien Laviscount), who enters the world of hunting and finds himself in the center of a monster mob war. You thought it was aight. At least, that’s what we gathered from the results of our online poll, in which 29 percent of our readers said they were on the fence about the show.

The most prevalent complaint among Supernatural loyals, however, is something you have to agree with — we wish the spin-off centered on a character we’ve already met.

In the rich world of Supernatural, there is no shortage of interesting and vibrant characters we’ve met over the course of ten seasons, and an opportunity to have a spin-off could have been a great opening to flesh some of those characters out even more.

The CW will pick its fall lineup in May, and whether or not Bloodlines is on that list, here are some SPN-offs we’d like to see: READ FULL STORY

Twilight-Bad-Lip-Reading.jpg

Twihards and Twisofts (can that be a thing?) alike, behold the latest Bad Lip Reading video, this time for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

The person behind Bad Lip Reading takes clips from movies, like Twilight, and dubs in new, random vocals making for weirder and funnier versions of the original scenes. Example: In the latest video, Jacob strides toward Edward asking, out of nowhere, “Do you ever just want to have a centipede?”

This guy is going to collect every VHS copy of 'Speed' in the world (also, he's taller)

Have you ever loved a movie so much that you just had to own every single copy of it? More specifically, have you ever had such a targeted and specific love for a movie that you had to own every single copy of it on VHS? Because Ryan Beitz has.

If you don’t recognize the name, allow me to formally introduce you to the guy who has made it his goal to collect every single VHS copy of Speed and then create his own Speed bus. And in case you’re wondering, yes. He’s taller than you. (Get it?)

As of right now, Beitz owns more than 500 copies of the Keanu Reeves-Sandra Bullock hit on VHS, and he’s not stopping there. However, his drive has less to do with a love of the film and more to do with life, quantity, Freud, Miley Cyrus, and life again. READ FULL STORY

A Peeps movie might be in the works, and we've got a few ideas

Peeps: You either love them or you hate them. Unless, of course, you’ve never had them, which should probably be a crime.

But in case you don’t know, the Easter-themed candy consists of a marshmallow that’s covered in colored sugar crystals and most often formed into the shape of either a chick or a bunny. We know, based solely on that description, it seems obvious that this classic candy should star in a Hollywood movie, but up to now, it’s never been done. However, that might change!

According to Deadline, Adam Rifkin has optioned film and TV rights to the fancy marshmallow treats for what could be a “Lego Movie-esque family epic set the night before a Peeps diorama contest, when a wayward Peep gets misplaced and must adventure through the fantasy lands of different-themed dioramas before the contest’s judging begins.” Ah yes, the tale of the lost Peep. It is a classic, I must admit. But what if this movie went another direction? What other things would make for a good Peep movie? We’ve got some ideas: READ FULL STORY

Hear all the F-words uttered in 'Wolf of Wall Street' -- VIDEO

Screen Junkies, what tricksters! The YouTube channel put out a video Tuesday touting it was a supercut of just the “F” words in The Wolf of Wall Street. And by “F” words, they meant literally all the words that begin with “F” said in the film — save the actual F-word.

The video’s premise is a play on the number of times “f—” is uttered in the film, an unclear number that is somewhere in the 500s.

Check out the video from Screen Junkies — the same people who make the always-hilarious Honest Trailers — below: READ FULL STORY

China made an aircraft-carrier short film that is basically their 'Top Gun'

Leader-for-the-Dream.jpg

So let’s say you’re a major global superpower, and you just got your first aircraft carrier. What do you do next?

If you’re China, you commission a six-minute sizzle reel showing off your totally sweet ship, set to pop music, with lots of sun-dappled cinematography of badass planes and the ripped pilots who fly them. Thus: “Leading the Dream,” a video which cuts between naval maneuvers and pop-music interludes featuring Tibetan singer Rong Zhong Er Jia. READ FULL STORY
