Nick Offerman reads profound Shower Thoughts from Reddit

Call them Deep Thoughts for the Reddit generation.

Channeling his inner Ron Swanson in a video created by Mashable, Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman reads simple yet great truisms from the best of Reddit’s Shower Thoughts.

In his signature deadpan, Offerman gazes off into the distance and shares knowledge that can only be summed up as pure Swanson genius. Because technically, he’s right—we’re all half centaur.

But the subreddit isn’t just a depository for readers’ soapy musings—Shower Thoughts is currently trying to raise money for Charity: Water, a non-profit organization seeking to provide clean water resources in every country. Maybe Offerman’s video will kick off the next Ice Bucket Challenge?

Adam-Pally.jpg

When The Mindy Project‘s Adam Pally isn’t busy playing the role of Peter—Mr. Wedding and general supporter of Mindy and Danny’s love—he keeps himself busy with a variety of projects. For one thing, he recently partnered with Philips Norelco Click & Style and YouTube stars The Warp Zone to create a two-part online video series that explores some of the “hairy issues” involved with manhood. Part 1 of that series, titled Game of Bros, is already online, with part 2 premiering Friday, August 1.

And when he’s not filming the web series? Well, you might be able to catch him watching recent episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. But that’s just one of the many things we discovered about Pally when we put him in the hot seat for our Pop Culture Personality Test. And if you want to know which celeb sex tape he still watches occasionally, be sure to watch the video ALL the way through. There might be a post-credit sequence calling your name.

The Mindy Project returns Tuesday, September 16 at 9:30 p.m. on Fox.

Harry's Music School: We test the 'Idol' finalists on their music knowledge -- VIDEO

Harry Connick Jr. quickly got the nickname “Harsh Harry” after joining the judging panel for the 13th season of American Idol for his brutally honest critiques and comments. However, the Grammy-winner also introduced many new musical terms and phrases that some viewers at home (and even other judges) were unfamiliar with. Now that Caleb Johnson has been declared the winner, we wanted to test him and some of the other Idol finalists and see if they can pass Harry’s Music School. Watch and test yourself below: READ FULL STORY

Watch Jennifer Lopez gets the 'goosies' over and over on 'Idol' -- VIDEO

J-Lo-goosies-supercut.jpg

In her three seasons as a judge on American Idol, Jennifer Lopez has had her fair share of comments — both for the show’s contestants and for the different men sitting beside her on the panel. But it seems that whenever J. Lo really enjoys a performance, her body is the first to know.

Luckily, she always lets the audience know about her nightly “goosies” — and we’ve put together a supercut of those moving moments:

MTV Movie Awards: Conan and Ice Cube attempt a death-defying stunt -- VIDEO

The 2014 MTV Movie Awards promises to be “the biggest one you’ll ever see.”

For this Sunday’s live broadcast, host Conan O’Brien has assembled stars, spoofs, pyrotechnics galore, and death-defying stunts to wow the millennial audiences. As he joked to EW earlier, he realized quickly that his Goonies monologue wasn’t exactly going to cut it for the sophisticated kids.

Stunts seemed like a good quick fix. If only he was brave enough to actually go through with them.

Could the 'Game of Thrones' kids take on 'stupid' Harry Potter in a fight? -- VIDEO

The Stark kids from Game of Thrones have had to battle a lot in Westeros on the hit HBO series. But how would they fare up against some other famous TV and film kids?

Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who play the three siblings on the show, joined Today’s Orange Room for a game of Versus. In these hypothetical match-ups, the trio had to decide if their characters could beat the kids from The Hunger Games, The Simpsons and everyone’s favorite boy wizard, Harry Potter. Well, everyone, except Turner that is.

“Oh, Potter. Sorry, but they’re so stupid. Come on, Harry finds all the loopholes, but he’s not actually a good wizard,” Turner laughed.

You may be surprised by some of their answers. Let’s just say, good thing Hermione is always there to save the day. Watch the video below: READ FULL STORY

'Breaking Bad' star Aaron Paul breaks 'Top Gear' speed record -- VIDEO

Aaron Paul is more than just breaking bad, he’s breaking speeding records. Paul, starring in car-themed flick Need for Speed hitting theaters March 14, went across the pond as a guest on BBC’s Top Gear on Sunday where he couldn’t contain his excitement after learning he beat the celebrity record for fastest time around the Top Gear track in the “Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car” segment.

Paul earned a 1:44.7, beating the previous winning time of 1:45.1 held by AC/DC’s Brian Johnson.

Check out the Top Gear segment below to see Paul’s impressive driving skills and, of course, talk about Breaking Bad. READ FULL STORY

Andrew Rannells, Jonathan Groff, Laura Benanti, and more star in Russia's fake Broadway musical -- VIDEO

How does a community band together to protest Russia’s anti-gay legislation? A musical, of course.

Dozens of New York stage stars have produced a fake musical that finds Russia’s fictional Broadway community (“The Great Red Way,” as they say) staging a protest show in response to the Russian government stance on homosexual propaganda via theatrical performance. In the U.S., who better to satirize than a group of musical theater actors?

There’s a little something for everyone here: Jonathan Groff and Jeremy Jordan as two ill-fated Olympians, Laura Benanti and Stephanie J. Block as lesbian astronauts, Michael Cerveris as a soliloquizing Putin, and Michael Urie giving his best Chorus Line. Tons of Broadway performers and creatives lent their support to the hilarious fictional musical, directed by John Walton West and composed by Jason Michael Snow — the same guys who brought us last year’s Downton Abbey: The Musical.

But despite the comedy, there’s a real social message here, and the Broadway community (which has never shied away from using art as activism, à la the Prop 8 musical) is the perfect group to tackle the gravely important anti-gay issues that are at the forefront of the conversation as we enter the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Perhaps narrator Rannells (bringing the ushanka back) sums it up best: “If we can help bring joy, inspire, and call people on bullsh–, that’s a night of theater.”

'American Horror Story: Coven' star Sarah Paulson takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

Sarah-Paulson.jpg

Sarah Paulson is having a huge day. Just nominated for a SAG Award for her role in the ensemble of 12 Years a Slave, she’ll also see action on the small screen during tonight’s winter finale of American Horror Story: Coven.

Though Paulson remained cryptic about the episode, she did tease that, as her character Cordelia, “I get my sight back [and] I have two different eyes.” Perhaps she’ll finally use those eyes to see through her witch hunter husband Hank (Josh Hamilton). Promises Paulson, “You learn more about Hank and why [he's betrayed her].”

Stopping in to take EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test, Paulson admitted that she will be utterly starstruck if she ever meets Emma Thompson. Considering Thompson is a fellow nominee for her brilliant turn as as Mary Poppins scribe P.L. Travers in Saving Mr. Banks, Paulson better steady herself for a major A-list encounter come Jan. 18.

In the meanwhile, you can click through to learn some of the actress’s other totems, including ’80s sitcoms and the part for which she lied she’d auditioned. READ FULL STORY
