Who will die by the end of 'Breaking Bad'? An oddsmaker gives his take

After the ending of last week’s Breaking Bad episode, things aren’t exactly looking good for some of our favorite characters. Hank, considering he just had what could very easily be his final conversation with Marie, could be on his way out, and let’s not forget that Todd’s uncle originally brought his boys out to kill Jesse. And then there’s the fact that Walt’s cancer is back. So with only three episodes left, is anyone going to make it out of New Mexico alive?

The short answer is: We have no idea, which is why we turned to someone who has a little bit more experience with odds than we do. Kevin Bradley, a sportsbook manager for Bovada, is a huge fan of the show and was willing to take the time to give us what he believes are the hypothetical odds that Walt, Jesse, Skyler, Saul, and Hank will die before the series ends:

Nicolas Cage swings around on Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball' -- VIDEO

wrecking-ball-nicolas-cage

After Miley Cyrus’ much-debated VMA’s performance, the singer decided the only way to top her stint of near-naked twerking on stage was to get completely naked in her newest video for the song “Wrecking Ball.” Oh, and obviously she had to lick a sledgehammer, too.

But now that (quite literally) everyone has watched the new video, what’s next? Well, thanks to one YouTube user, how about a remix of the “Wrecking Ball” video featuring none other than Nicolas Cage? How would that work, you ask? It’s simple really: Just paste Cage’s face onto Cyrus’ naked body, and watch him/her swing around on a wrecking ball. Happy Friday to you!

Watch what’s sure to become a viral video below:

Tom Hiddleston fans petition for Loki film

Loki has an army (of fans, not destructive alien beings, thankfully), and that army wants a Loki movie.

Launched in July following an overwhelmingly popular appearance by the character at Comic Con, the “Free Loki” Change.org petition is nearing its goal for 20,000 signatures in support of a film starring Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the villain he portrayed in ThorThe Avengers and the upcoming Thor: The Dark World.

Why Xavier Samuel is the best thing about 'Adore'

I don’t know if it was the sheer intrigue of watching two motherlovers actually you know each other’s mothers, or if it was simply the fact that I didn’t feel like getting up off the couch. Either way, I spent my Friday night watching Robin Wright and Naomi Watts play sort-of lesbians who end up getting involved with each other’s sons in Adore. And I wish I could say I regret the experience.

I’m not here to argue that Adore is a great film, because it’s not. I knew what I was going to get before I hit “play,” which is what allowed me to watch the film without judgment — or perhaps just with less judgment than most. But regardless, before I knew it, I had fallen into this troubling story, and I didn’t know why. There was something magnetic about the film that I couldn’t identify. All I knew was that I didn’t want it to end. Let me reiterate: I didn’t want this story about two best friends, each one having sex with the other’s son (whom they’d helped to raise), to end.

So at this point I’m thinking there’s something wrong with me, right?

Apple to unveil new iPhone models? What we want to see

iPhone-5.jpg

On Sept. 10, Apple is holding an event at its headquarters in Cupertino, California to reportedly unveil new models of the iPhone, from a standard upgrade for the iPhone 5 to a brand new model that’s meant to be more affordable for those in developing regions. The event will also feature the release of an overhaul to the iOS mobile operating system, according to Bloomberg.

All that sounds great and fancy, but what does it really mean for those of us with iPhones? Well, iOS7 has been introduced with a number of new features, including a Control Center, a Notification Center, and better multitasking (so all of those commercials can finally stop). It also promises an overall more organized experience when it come to things such as photos, and easier sharing with AirDrop, which uses WiFi and Bluetooth to share anything from an app. And did we mention the more colorful screen?

So far so good. But considering my iPhone is pretty much my best friend at this point, there are a few other adjustments I’d really like to see: READ FULL STORY

'True Blood': Five things we want to happen in the final season

Oh, True Blood. After years of supernatural creatures, vamp-speed sex scenes, human-speed sex scenes, murder, fangs, and Southern accents, it looks like we’ve only got 10 episodes left before Bon Temps becomes nothing but a (very bloody) memory. HBO announced today that season 7 will be the show’s last. So in honor of the campy goodness that often confused us but we loved all the same, we’ve rounded up five things we want to see happen before we have to bid farewell to the home of V-addicted werewolves, the Vampire Bible and so much more (spoilers ahead):

'Fifty Shades of Grey': Why Charlie Hunnam is the right choice to play Christian Grey

When my best friend shipped me the Fifty Shades of Grey books and demanded that I read them more than a year ago, I rolled my eyes and reluctantly turned the first page. A week or two later — it’s all a blur at this point — I had finished all three books and had moved on to the next stage of Fifty Shades fandom: Debating who should play the lead role in the film adaptation.

From day one, I was a Matt Bomer supporter through and through. I didn’t care that his hair was too dark — I couldn’t help but picture Christian as a dark brunette for some reason — and I didn’t care that he was gay (he’s an actor). Bomer had the eyes and the overall “prettiness” that Christian was described as having, not to mention the musical ability, and I was sure he’d be a great dancer. Plus, have you seen him in a suit? Next to Bomer, I could understand some of the other arguments — Ian Somerhalder definitely knows how to smolder — but as far as I was concerned, I had my Christian.

And then yesterday, I saw that Charlie Hunnam had been cast in the lead role. I clicked on the story, and before I could get upset by the blond Sons of Anarchy star portraying Mr. Grey, I found myself oddly at ease. Somewhere under the scruff, there was a pretty boy hiding, and I could see him peeking through gorgeous gray eyes. Then I Google Image-searched Hunnam (Catfish-style) to see if I was crazy, and as it turns out, I’m not.

'Fifty Shades of Grey': Bret Easton Ellis tweets that Robert Pattinson was E. L. James' first choice for Christian

After countless rumors, fake magazine covers, secret conversations, and fan-made movie trailers, Charlie Hunnam has officially been cast as rich-playboy-with-a-secret Christian Grey in the big-screen adaptation of E. L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. But that doesn’t mean he was the author’s first choice.

According to Bret Easton Ellis, who had once expressed interest in writing the screenplay, James pictured Robert Pattinson in the role of Christian, who’s described in the books as having dark copper-colored hair and, of course, those unforgettable gray eyes.

Ellis tweeted that not only was Pattinson James’ first choice, but that fan favorites Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder were “never in the running.” Check out Ellis’ tweets below: READ FULL STORY

James Franco's Comedy Central roast: A drinking game

True, we already know the best jokes told at Franco’s ritual ribbing; EW was on the scene for the event’s taping, which happened last Sunday.

But drinking games aren’t about surprises. They’re about recognizing predictable words and behaviors, ones that are repeated frequently but not so frequently that following them would make playing the game physically impossible. (Which would be why we’re not asking you to sip every time James Franco squints.)

So with that in mind, let’s consider some of the topics that will likely come up again and again when Comedy Central airs the roast this Monday, Sept. 2 at 10 p.m. Obviously, PopWatch cautions you to celebrate responsibly — especially if you’re planning to indulge in Franco’s drug of choice.*

Aziz Ansari wants 'Scandal' to crossover with 'Parks and Recreation': Here are 5 other crossovers we want to see

Odds are, if you’re a television lover, you have more than one favorite show. And sometimes, you might get to thinking about what it would be like if those worlds collided. And while most of the time, it doesn’t work — Mad Men and The Carrie Diaries?! — there are a few instances where things just might click. For Aziz Ansari, that moment involved an intense binge-watching session of Scandal and dreaming about being in the presence of the woman-in-white, Ms. Olivia Pope.

“I’m such a big fan of the show,” Ansari told the LA Times. “I watched it in a few days. I was obsessed with Oliva and Fitz. I was obsessed with the voting card thing. I was obsessed with the weird naked fight. I was obsessed with everything.”

So how does he think a crossover between Scandal and Parks and Recreation would work? “I secretly believe they are in the same universe. I think Harrison and Tom are college roommates and they used to have an R & B group together called … Too Much is Not E-Nuff. We have to shoot that, the crossover episode. It’s really simple: There’s some sort of issue that Leslie needs to deal with, and then Tom’s like, ‘Duh, lemme call my guy’ and then it’s like boom, boom, boom, glitter, glitter, glitter, Pope & Associates magically appear. Ann who? It’s Knope and Olivia Pope now.”

We don’t hate this idea. Leslie does have a few things that could be “handled.” And seeing the perfectly dressed Harrison in any sort of R & B outfit would just be heavenly. And this got us thinking: What other shows would we love to see collide?

Here are a few crossovers we dreamed up:
