Watch Uzo Aduba teach Conan O'Brien how to make 'crazy eyes'

On Monday night, the cast of Orange Is the New Black went on its first-ever late-night appearance as a group when stars Kate Mulgrew, Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Jason Biggs, Laverne Cox, and Lea DeLaria joined Conan O’Brien to talk about their hit Netflix show.

Perhaps the highlight of their appearance was Aduba revealing the secret to Crazy Eyes’ signature facial expression. But when she tried to talk O’Brien through the process of making his eyes pop like Aduba’s do on the show, he looked less crazy and more creepy and confused.

In his new show, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, the outdoors expert teaches celebrities how to survive in the wild. So when Grylls stopped by the EW video studio, we had him teach us a thing or two about survival… in Hollywood.

This week's cover: New 'Doctor Who' star Peter Capaldi clocks in

Does this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly defy the laws of physics by being bigger on the inside than it would appear from looking at its exterior? Fans of the British science fiction show Doctor Who may well think so.

Here’s a pleasant surprise: Bert, Cookie Monster, and Murray came to the EW Hideout at San Diego Comic-Con all the way from Sesame Street. They were pretty excited to be there, and really, really like comic books. Except for Bert. He’s into bottle caps.

Mary Poppins gets political in Funny or Die bit starring Kristen Bell

In a new Funny or Die shortFrozen star Kristen Bell plays iconic nanny Mary Poppins—and she performs a version of “A Spoonful of Sugar,” but instead of trying to coax children into cleaning their room, the perpetually cheery caregiver is trying to coax the government into raising the minimum wage. Turns out poor Miss Poppins is underpaid, which is, as she puts it as she opens her broken umbrella, “supercalifragilisticexpiali-bulls–t.”

While listening to Frozen’s “Let It Go,” have you ever thought, “Patrick Stewart and/or a bunch of other ’80s TV stars would make this gem even better”? No? Well, video producer Jim Cliff went ahead and edited together clips from over 60 different ’80s television shows to make a new, Tom Selleck-filled version of “Let It Go” anyway—and yes, Stewart’s Captain Jean-Luc Picard even joins in on the chorus.

'Better Call Saul' has a real-life billboard, working phone number

Fans expect a lot from Better Call Saul. Since the show takes place before, during, and after Breaking Bad, it’s got countless opportunities to showcase familiar faces (beyond Mike, who’s a series regular). Then there’s the smaller stuff: We want to see Saul with ridiculous hair, a bluetooth in his ear, and maybe a questionable massage appointment every once in a while. But as it turns out, Saul diehards have already gotten one of their wishes: the billboard. READ FULL STORY
