'Mean Girls' characters: Where are they now?

MEAN-GIRLS

This is worse than wearing sweatpants: Mean Girls isn’t getting a Tina Fey-penned sequel!

Despite some hopeful speculation from fans recently, Fey confirmed the news to Extra on Wednesday, saying, “We’re coming up next month on the 10-year anniversary of the original movie… We’re going to see if there’s any way to get everyone together, but not a movie, sadly. We’re all past high school age.” (Mean Girls 2, the 2011 TV movie sequel with a whole new group of girls, is best not mentioned.)

Like any good twenty-something, I love the movie, but the “no sequel” news is totally for the best. There’s no way people wouldn’t be disappointed by whatever they came up with, and now, fans can just continue to watch and love the original as the perfect high school satire that it is. For those that would like a little more, all hope isn’t lost: Fey is directing her energy towards a possible Mean Girls musical (which she told EW about last year in her EW Interview).

Since Fey has made it clear we aren’t going to get Regina and Gretchen’s High School Reunion, just for fun I went ahead and pictured where the whole fetch gang is now, 10 years post-high school. READ FULL STORY

Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, and more lose a bet to Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

Ten years ago, if Jimmy Fallon told you he was going to host the Tonight Show, you’d likely respond to the Saturday Night Live player, “Yeah. In your dreams. Enjoy the Taxi premiere!”

But times have changed, and with Monday night’s debut for Fallon’s Tonight Show, it was time for the comedian to collect on a couple bets. “To my buddy who said I’d never host the Tonight Show — and you know who you are — you owe me a hundred bucks,” he declared during his monologue.

Cue Fallon’s buddies: Robert De Niro, Tina Fey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lindsay Lohan, and many, many more. Watch below in EW’s late-night highlight video: READ FULL STORY

'Monuments Men' stars George Clooney, Matt Damon, more talk Golden Globes revenge with EW Radio -- VIDEO

After Tina Fey made a Golden Globes joke about George Clooney and the age of the women he likes to date, the Hollywood prankster planned his revenge, with the help of some Matt Damon stationery. That was just one of the many anecdotes Clooney shared with EW Radio during the Monuments Men Town Hall, which airs Friday at 1 p.m. ET on Sirius XM 105. People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle led the talk, which included Clooney and Monuments Men co-stars Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban, and Hugh Bonneville.

In addition to their pranking behavior, the group also revealed what they would be doing if they weren’t acting (someone needs to remind Matt Damon that he already is a writer — an Oscar-winning one!). The movie, which opens Friday, is inspired by the true story of a group of museum directors, curators, and art historians who entered Germany at the end of World War II to rescue artwork taken by the Nazis. Oscar winners Cate Blanchett and Jean DuJardin also star.

During the chat on Wednesday, Clooney revealed he sent a fake letter to Tina Fey and co-host Amy Poehler, seemingly from Damon, asking for an apology for his own Globes dig about being considered the “garbageman” in the room. When Damon later received two large fruit baskets at his home, he knew something was up. Watch the clip below to get the full story:

Golden Globes 2014: Screengrab recap

I took way too many photos of my TV screen during the Golden Globes. Some of them made the cut. (Who can say what “some” means, really?) Join me in a visual adventure through Tina and Amy’s gladiating, Martin Scorsese’s unbridled enthusiasm at a vagina joke, Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ gluttony, and more: READ FULL STORY

Did Tina Fey burn Taylor Swift at the Golden Globes?

Was she just being “Mean”? (No.)

After Amy Poehler finally won a Golden Globe for her work on Parks and Recreation, Tina Fey happily said to her friend and co-host, “I love you, and there’s a special place in hell for you!”

Hilarious…and also some not-so-subtle shade-throwing on an in-the-room Taylor Swift? Swift famously got upset last year at the Golden Globes when Poehler and Fey made a silly joke at her expense, telling her to “stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son.”

Later, when Swift was on the cover of Vanity Fair, she spoke about the incident, saying,”You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’” (The quote is originally attributed to Madeleine Albright.)

Now, the ‘hell’ quote seems to be thrown back at her. Pity the cameraperson didn’t cut away for a reaction shot. READ FULL STORY

Tina and Amy's best Golden Globes jokes: Read 'em here! VIDEO

Live, from Beverly Hills, it’s the 71st Annual Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Lee Daniels’ The Butler Golden Globe Awards! And as you can see from the previous sentence, hosts Fey and Poehler are already proving why bringing them back to host was the best idea NBC’s had since the mid-’00s. Here are a few funny highlights; check back for an updated list of jokes as the night progresses.

Amy: “Congratulations to all the wonderful actors nominated tonight, from the amazing Chiwetel Ejiofer, to the stunning Lupita Nyong’o, to American treasure Tam Honks. …Damnit, I knew I was going to screw that up.” [Camera pans to Tom Hanks]

Amy: “Matt Damon is here for Behind the Candelabra. Matt, on any other night in another room, you would be a big deal. But tonight, and don’t take this the wrong way, you’re basically a garbage person.”

Golden Globes: Play our drinking game!

Will Jennifer Lawrence make a charming speech? Will Amy Poehler crack you up? Will Ricky Gervais drunk-rush the stage, demanding what he sees as rightfully his?

It’s anyone’s guess what will go down tonight during the Golden Globes, often noted by the attendees as the most fun and laid-back awards show of the year. After all, this is the one — according to Amy Poehler’s monologue from last year’s ceremony — “Where the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people from TV.”

Since you won’t be heading to the Globes this year, PopWatch has broken down all the likely phrases and jokes you’ll be hearing when your favorite ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take to the Globes stage tonight at 8 p.m. ET. Obviously, PopWatch cautions you to celebrate responsibly. Pace yourself; this whole show is — oh my God, it’s three hours long, and that’s not including any pre-carpet gown judging you partake in.

Tina Fey, Louis CK, more are 'Getting Coffee' with Jerry Seinfeld -- VIDEO

“This show is not really a show,” Howard Stern tells Jerry Seinfeld in the following clip, speaking in a slightly accusatory tone. “It’s just for you to drive around in cool cars…”

“…with people I think are cool,” Seinfeld answers matter-of-factly.

And that, in essence, is what the self-explanatory webseries Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is all about. Each episode features a neat old automobile, a sunny locale, and a table where Seinfeld shares a caffeinated beverage with a different comedic luminary. Tina Fey, Patton Oswalt, Howard Stern, Jay Leno, and Louis CK will all appear on the show this year — as will a creepy drone camera whose flight is scored by “Ride of the Valkyries.” Judging from the trailer, Seinfeld and Stern’s talk looks like it’ll be especially fun; how often do you get to see one middle-aged comedian tell another that he looks like “a hip Wicked Witch of the West”?

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reveal 'Star Wars VII' roles; J.J. Abrams responds

Things seem to be going pretty well these days for Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. They are about to host the Golden Globes for the second year in a row, they’re both producing multiple shows for multiple networks, and they’re serving as guest editors of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. But what people really want to know is: When will these Saturday Night Live/Baby Mama co-stars find a way to join forces for another TV show or movie?

During our Q&A with the pair for this special issue, the 30 Rock creator/actress and Parks and Recreation star declared their desire to star together in a drama. And we mean together. “We want to play Siamese twin judges on a law procedural,” says Fey. “Our condition does not get in the way of our judgment,” adds Poehler. “And that’s what the show’s about: Even though we’re bound together, we’re not bound to each other’s ideals.” Fey agrees: “One of us is very conservative and the other is a recovering alcoholic, so it makes for great drama.”

But it was a high-profile project on the big screen that truly lit up their faces, as Fey and Poehler revealed that they have scored roles in the new Star Wars film as… Darth Vader’s mothers.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler tackle 2013's biggest pop culture topics, make bold predictions for 2014

This week’s issue of EW is going to feature a lot of T & A.

That’s Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, you sickos. The two women, who will host the Golden Globes next month for the second year in a row, accepted a one-week job to become guest editors of EW. What does that mean, you ask? It means they wrote the Must List and Bullseye, assigned several stories and ran down the hallway screaming things like, “Orphan Black is the new Orange is the New Black!” and “Change all fonts to Comic Sans at once!” Of course, if you’re going to run a national entertainment magazine, you need to have a stunning command of the pop culture landscape. Which is why we asked the pair for their thoughts on how to cover some of 2013′s biggest pop culture topics. READ FULL STORY
