We here at Entertainment Weekly like to think of our jobs as highly specialized. (Not just anyone can push that little voice-recorder button while simultaneously asking questions and nodding, wisely, you know.) But when the Black Keys said they wanted to be interviewed by Danny McBride, how could we refuse? After all, the platinum-selling, Grammy awards-collecting rock duo just released their eighth studio album, Turn Blue, and will be dominating festivals and headlining arena shows from Croatia to Cleveland this summer. We asked McBride, 37 — so memorable as egomaniacal pitcher Kenny Powers on HBO’s late, lamented Eastbound & Down and as himself in last year’s star-packed apocalyptic meta-comedy This Is the End — to kick off our Summer Music Preview issue by manning the tiny microphone.

In a heartwarming publicity stunt, ABC is paying for New York City couples to get married to promote Cam and Mitchell’s upcoming wedding on the season finale of ABC’s Modern Family.
Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson went on Good Morning America Monday morning to talk their fictional nuptials, which will be the center of the series’ final two episodes of the season, and to announce that ABC will be covering all marriage licenses at the New York City courthouse Monday.
Sofia Coppola’s The Little Mermaid may be nowhere near release yet — but Funny or Die’s spoof of the upcoming movie could be a pretty accurate predictor of what it’ll be like. (Or at least, what we hope it’ll be like.)
Coppola, director of Lost and Translation and The Bling Ring, is working on a live-action adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid. Many have joked that the film will feature the hipster version of Disney’s Ariel; Funny or Die made this joke a reality in a video that stars AnnaSophia Robb as a cutting-edge Ariel and American Horror Story’s Evan Peters as a cigarette-smoking Eric.
If you have A Person, once had A Person, or ever lost A Person, the following video might make you weep for your BFF.
Frankly, Meredith and Cristina are one of the best friendships on TV. (I’m happy to debate that, if you disagree. Also, you’re nuts!) And as Sandra Oh prepares to bid farewell to the series, fans of the pleasantly sardonic pair will likely enjoy this walk down memory lane — even if you’re not a happy, glowy person. READ FULL STORY
Bryan Cranston doesn’t know what a badonkadonk is.
The Breaking Bad star, who’s currently playing President Lyndon Johnson in Broadway play “All the Way,” went on The Tonight Show Monday and played a game of “Word Sneak” with Jimmy Fallon. Each one was challenged to sneak five words into conversation — including “badonkadonk,” a term that Cranston butchered before turning to the audience and mouthing, “I don’t know what that is!”
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
At Thursday night’s Gloria Awards, actress Gabourey Sidibe shared a well-known fact: Cookies will never hurt you.
The American Horror Story star spoke at the annual awards, which also celebrated the Ms. Foundation for Women’s 40th year, and talked about the one question she gets asked too often: “How are you so confident?”
The answer? It has to do with being a jerk, an unsupportive environment growing up, and baking cookies. Read the highlights below:
Garfield went on The Tonight Show Thursday and, after discussing his recent ventures into learning to play guitar, he launched into a performance of the theme song from the 1967 animated Spider-Man TV show. It was, in a word, amazing. (Hey, just like Spider-Man!)
Rewatching all five seasons of Breaking Bad is a time-consuming project, we know. But it’s important to never forget Walter White’s journey, Gus’ glasses, Mike’s everything, Jesse’s good heart, Todd’s sociopathy, and pretty much everything that ever happened on that show.
And that’s why we’ve got good news! You can relive just about all the feelings you ever had when watching Breaking Bad in eight minutes with this recap of the entire series from French filmmaker Alexandre Gasulla. It will give you chills, and it might make you cry, but I promise that you will feel completely revived when you’re done. I can also promise that it will make you want to re-watch Breaking Bad in its entirety. Apparently some things just never go away.
