The Bings reunite! -- PHOTOS

As the great Chanandler Bong would say: Could these photos BE more amazing?

Answer: Nope. Because my definition of pure bliss is acting like Friends never ended, and if anything is going to help me live in denial, it’s a steady stream of photos featuring random pairings of Friends cast members.

'Glee': What was the biggest bombshell on the show last night? POLL

Time for a Gleek out!  You may have thought last night’s episode of Glee was going to be big, but who could have called everything that would happen in Lima on Valentine’s Day? The biggest plot point we all thought was pretty close to a sure thing – the Will and Emma wedding – didn’t happen, and instead, we got a jilted groom, hookups galore, new characters and even a possible pregnancy. Wowza. We have to wait three more weeks to find out what the next step is (Glee returns Mar. 7) but for now, what revelation got the biggest reaction out of you? I, for one, gasped out loud when Santana and Quinn got a hotel room (!) and then at the end when Rachel was waiting for the results of her pregnancy test (!!!).

Vote in our poll below and tell us which moment made you do a double-take. READ FULL STORY

Dozens brave the weather to snag Justin Bieber 'Saturday Night Live' tickets: On-the-scene report

Bieber Fever got a lot riskier today as Winter Storm Nemo rages in the Northeast. In New York City, this meant freezing rain and sleet at about noon Friday. But nothing – not even soaked sleeping bags or broken umbrellas—could get between about 45 fans and Justin Bieber. The singer is hosting Saturday Night Live tomorrow night, and the Beliebers were desperate for tickets.

Let’s get one thing out of the way first: They know you all think they’re nuts. It would have been an undertaking to sleep outside in February, and that was before the weather took a turn for the worse. Everyone EW spoke with said it was the craziest thing they’d ever done. Kaitlyn Marhelko, from Pennsylvania, knew the chances to get tickets were slim. But that didn’t deter her. “If you ever get a chance to do something like this, you do it no matter what kind of weather is coming your way. It’s an awesome experience, and this might sound cliché, but you really do only live once. It is cool to try.” She and her friend Ashleigh Bagnata had been in line for about two hours and were still enthusiastic. READ FULL STORY

Start your engines: James Franco will act as Grand Marshal for the Daytona 500

Promoting a movie isn’t just about late-night talk shows and the occasional photo shoot anymore. At least not if your name is James Franco.

Disney has announced that James Franco will act as the Grand Marshal for the 55th annual Daytona 500, NASCAR’s season-opening race and its Super Bowl, from a fan-interest point of view. How this ties in to Franco promoting his Disney film, Oz The Great and Powerful, we are not sure — perhaps he’ll hold court in a hot-air balloon? — but you can watch Franco’s rendition of “Drivers, start your engines,” when the race airs Feb. 24.

As well as uttering those four famous words, Franco will also participate in pre-race ceremonies and ride in one of the Grand Marshal cars during the pace laps that take place just before the race begins.

Alan Cumming returns to Broadway in one-man production of 'Macbeth'

Alan Cumming

Not only is Alan Cumming hitting the Broadway stage in the latest production of Macbeth, but he’s doing it alone.

For only 73 performances, Cumming will star in a one-man version of the Shakespearean drama, in which he plays a patient in a psychiatric unit. The Tony Award winner then proceeds to inhabit every part within the play. Directed by Tony Award winners John Tiffany and Andrew Goldberg, Cumming’s Macbeth is coming to Broadway’s Ethel Barrymore Theater from April 7 through June 30 after successful stints at the National Theatre of Scotland and the Lincoln Center Festival.

“Performing Macbeth last year was the most challenging and fulfilling experience of my career by far, and so I am both honored and daunted to do it again in my adopted hometown of New York City,” Cumming said in a press release.

The play’s opening night is Sunday, April 21.

New scoop! '30 Rock' has its own Ben & Jerry's flavor

ben-jerrys

Ben & Jerry’s new 30 Rock flavor has arrived. Correction: Ben & Jerry’s new Liz Lemon flavor has arrived.

Ben & Jerry’s has revealed that its 30 Rock-themed flavor is actually greek frozen yogurt — Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt to be exact. B&J describes its new creation as a “lemony-blueberry-y flavor.” Although we are sure that Liz would appreciate the use of her name, we’re willing to bet she would’ve preferred something with a little bit more of a “night cheese” flavor.

The flavor will be available for your enjoyment this spring.

That is so fetch: Tina Fey wants Mariah Carey for 'Mean Girls' musical -- We cast other characters

Mean-Girls_510x317.jpg

While talking to E! Online on the red carpet at the SAG Awards, Tina Fey mentioned that she thought Mariah Carey could star in her Mean Girls musical. (She told EW of her plans to turn her hit film into a musical back in our September cover story.)

“Maybe she can play Amy Poehler’s part,” Fey joked, after discussing Mariah’s knowledge of the film.

Mariah Carey as Mrs. George? She certainly has the singing voice for the role. But who else would we cast in our perfect production of Mean Girls? READ FULL STORY

Shakespeare lures Julie Taymor back to the stage

When the theater world last left Julie Taymor, Spider-Man was pushing her off the stage. Now, Shakespeare is pulling her back. Taymor’s reps confirm that she will christen Theatre for a New Audience’s new home in Brooklyn as director of A Midsummer Night’s Dream this fall.

This won’t be the director’s first brush with Shakespeare, of course. She’s wrestled him to the silver screen before, adapting both Titus and The Tempest, with varying amounts of success (and blood).

It would spoil the fun to speculate too heavily on what her Dream might be, but we can hazard an early guess: We shall not want for spectacle.

Drink tequila with George Clooney -- and 22 other celebrities in the business of booze

Have you ever wanted to share a bottle of tequila with George Clooney until he got so drunk that he mistakenly thought you were Stacy Keibler? OK, so we can’t really help you out with the second half of that scenario, but the first half is suddenly much more plausible thanks to Clooney’s latest business venture.

The sexier-with-age movie star is teaming up Rande Gerber to create Casamigos, a new brand of tequila. According to Vanity Fair, Gerber and Clooney will sign every bottle that is made, number it and even taste it themselves (aka you’re sharing a drink with George Clooney … get it?). But as delicious and tempting as it all sounds, we always imagined that Clooney was more of a scotch neat kind of guy.

But Clooney isn’t the first celebrity to surprise us with his taste in alcohol, and we’re sure he won’t be the last. Here’s a rundown of some celebrities who have given the business of booze a try. Who matches up best with his or her drink of choice?
