'Tonight Show' rap star Brian Williams conquers 'Gin and Juice,' wants to do Ludacris next -- VIDEO

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams wants you to know he never said “hippity.”

Jimmy Fallon has turned Williams into a rap star through videos of Williams “performing” hip-hop classics like “Rapper’s Delight” and, as of last night, “Gin and Juice,” via some very fancy editing. So on Monday, Williams himself went on The Tonight Show to talk about his burgeoning rap career. And he has some of his own ideas.

'Mindy Project': Should Mindy and Danny become a couple again? -- POLL

Should Mindy and Danny get back together on The Mindy Project, or are they a Taylor Swift song waiting to happen?

Chris Messina broke hearts a few weeks back on The Mindy Project when his character, sexy doctor Danny Castellano, ended his just-beginning relationship with Mindy because he “didn’t want to ruin the friendship” or whatever, a.k.a.: He’s a big baby and fans were/are not amused.

But! The darkness may be coming to an end soon. Messina told Vulture on Sunday, “There is a payoff that I think is worth sticking around for. We just shot the finale and I think it’s our best episode. It’s very romantic.” That lines up with what Ike Barinholtz told EW earlier this month: “I think the dynamic between them is special and different and they are unlike any other couple on TV because they are such distinct characters and they fight so much. To put them back together just makes so much sense…eventually.” The finale episode is called “Danny and Mindy,” so it sounds like that “eventually” may come pretty soon. READ FULL STORY

'Space Jam' live read features Seth Green, Blake Griffin, Danielle Fishel and more -- VIDEO

Cue up “I Believe I Can Fly.”

Last month, there was a live reading of the 1996 Michael Jordan/Looney Tunes “masterpiece” Space Jam, featuring Seth Green, Danielle Fishel, Ben Schwartz, Nick Kroll and many more. Unfortunately, the whole thing isn’t available online — but Funny or Die has released a 10-minute highlight reel, which clearly proves that the comedians showed up ready to (space) jam. Sadly, there is no surprise Bill Murray appearance.

Led by Blake Griffin as Jordan, the footage from the reading is intercut with interviews in which the cast explains their memories of the movie; Kroll’s fondest memories are the nine minutes of Space Jam he watched on YouTube recently, as he’d never seen the film. Imagine going through life never seeing his Royal Airness help out Daffy Duck! Luckily, the lack of research doesn’t seem to hurt his performance.

Watch below — and get excited for DeAndre Jordan as Charles Barkley: READ FULL STORY

'Scandal' cast member Jeff Perry admits watching 'The Wire' is on his to-do list -- VIDEO

Unscientific figures (via my Twitter feed) confirm that 30 percent of Scandal fans became addicted to the show after binge-watching the first season. But which Scandal cast member has a little binge-watching of his own to do? Jeff Perry, who admitted to EW that The Wire remains on his to-do list, more than six years after it signed off the air!

This confession and more were made when Perry, who plays the formidable Cyrus Beene on the ABC drama, stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch it below: READ FULL STORY

'Neighbors': Seth Rogen and Zac Efron try out for 'Workaholics' cubicle -- NSFW VIDEO

Workaholics-Neighbors.jpg

In a new Comedy Central video, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron audition for the most coveted role of them all: the fourth member of Adam, Blake, and Anders’ cubicle on Workaholics.

Their appearance in the Workaholics world is part of a promotional tour for the duo’s upcoming movie Neighbors, in which Rogen plays a new dad who clashes with his family’s new neighbor, a rowdy frat — and let’s just say Efron lives up to his role as cocky frat boy in the clip. READ FULL STORY

Josh Charles on 'Inside Amy Schumer' gives us unfounded hope for Will Gardner -- VIDEO

Everyone stop panicking, because we’ve found Will Gardner! He isn’t dead after all! He’s simply having a bit of a mid-life crisis, guys, and it’s OK. I have a plan to get him back to his rightful home on The Good Wife.

In a segment titled “The Foodroom” on Inside Amy Schumer, we find Will struggling with his new career choice. As Amy tells him in the clip, he’s damaged goods, and we all know why. Clearly, he was mistaken for dead and then forced to leave Chicago (and Alicia) behind. Plus, he was obviously forced to change his name to J.J.

Now, he’s stuck in an unhappy relationship with Amy Schumer while he works as a manager at a fast food restaurant and tries to relive his glory days. He even walks around giving inspirational speeches like he’s still working a courtroom. It breaks my heart.

Here’s some perspective for you: Old Will had a nice apartment, a comfortable bed — right Alicia? — and spent his days fighting for justice. The new Will has a bassist as a roommate, sleeps on a futon, and spends his days fighting for obesity. But one thing we can hold onto: He still knows how to clear a desk counter!

MTV Movie Awards: Here's the drinking game

It’s time for the biggest award show of the year!

Not really, of course. The MTV Movie Awards isn’t so much a legitimate award show as it is a way for stars to plug their big summer movies by trying to make a “viral” moment happen without any backlash. But, any award show that wants to give Channing Tatum a Trailblazer award can’t be all bad. Fingers crossed the inevitable look-back montage includes a little She’s The Man.

Tonight, make like the stars and imbibe a little during the ceremony. It can only make the unique combination of Conan O’Brien, Ice Cube, and Rihanna funnier. READ FULL STORY

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'The Lion King'

From the now-iconic opening note of that incredible beginning sequence, viewers of The Lion King knew they were in for a very special treat: A Disney animated movie that — thanks to its compelling story about the circle of life, an all-star voice cast that included Jeremy Irons, Matthew Broderick, and James Earl Jones, and that music — would appeal to adults just as much as the kids that begged their parents to take them to theaters.

The Lion King followed Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Aladdin in an era that came to be known as the Disney Renaissance. But, The Lion King was the first Disney animated movie that was an entirely original work — not directly based on any previous story. As the legend goes, the Disney team wasn’t originally too sure about Simba. Production began at the same time as work on Pocahontas, which was considered to be the more successful project. The animators and behind-the-scenes team had a change of heart when they saw the opening footage cut together. In fact, it was then decided that for the first time for a Disney movie, the original trailer would just be a full scene from the film.

Today, EW’s Summer Blockbuster Month continues with Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff’s animated showstopper that made us all feel the love (tonight). READ FULL STORY

Emma Stone meets Sporty Spice, freaks out, and agrees to try on all of Baby Spice's dresses -- VIDEO

EMMA-STONE-SPICE-GIRLS.jpg

Emma Stone’s Spider-Man press tour is quickly turning into her childhood dream come true: The chance to chat with all of the Spice Girls (and potentially try on their clothes?).

First, Stone teared up when Mel B recorded a message for her during an interview. And in the latest segment of “Could Emma Stone be any cuter?” Stone and Andrew Garfield paid a visit to British Radio Program “Capital Breakfast.” After they both joined the hosts for a rendition of “Stop” — with dance moves! — Stone got a surprise visitor. Direct from her “mum’s” house, Mel C, a.k.a. Sporty Spice, hopped on FaceTime to say hello to her biggest fan!

And things only got better when Mel C brought up Baby Spice and how Stone is welcome to try on all her old dresses. Bonus adorable factor: Garfield’s reaction to all of this.

Watch Stone’s fan girl moment below:
