Emma Stone's Spice Girls press tour needs to stop

Stop right now. Thank you very much.

Right now, Emma Stone is technically promoting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – and not, as it turns out, a reunion of the U.K.’s best girl group. But this weekend, the star went on The Graham Norton Show, explained her love of the fab five once again, and had a major freak-out when she thought the gals might be in the building (they weren’t).

“I feel like I’ve been talking about the Spice Girls more on this press tour than I have about the movie,” Stone explained. She’s not wrong: She teared up when Mel B recorded a message for her during an interview in Australia, and had another emotional meltdown when Mel C, a.k.a. Sporty Spice, hopped on FaceTime to say hello during another appearance. And that’s not even counting all of the smaller junket interviews in which Stone has once again talked about her lifelong devotion to Sporty, Scary, Baby, Ginger, and Posh. READ FULL STORY

Jeremy Jordan sings 'Let It Go' from 'Frozen' at Miscast gala honoring Allison Janney -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

On March 31, New York’s MCC Theater held its raucous Miscast gala, an annual fundraiser honoring one veteran theater artist — this year, the fearless Allison Janney — with a concert program line-up that features Broadway stars performing songs typically sung by the opposite gender. Last year, you might remember Jeremy Jordan and Jonathan Groff stopping the show with Smash’s “Let Me Be Your Star.” This year was no different, but we’ll get to that. First, Janney. READ FULL STORY

Fake trailer for '30 for 30' film on former NBA player Brian Scalabrine goes viral -- VIDEO

ESPN’s documentary series 30 for 30 does a commendable job highlighting sports’ great underdog stories. And even though basketball player Brian Scalabrine may have been the NBA underdog story of the last decade, nobody expected to see an episode about him. Now, the Internet is clamoring for one.

A fan of the former NBA player has taken it upon himself to create a trailer for a hypothetical documentary on the basketball star, titled Brian. The video has gone viral.

A backup forward who played for the Nets, Celtics (where he won a championship) and Bulls, Scalabrine — nicknamed The White Mamba — never actually saw much time on the court. At the peak of his career, he averaged about six points per game. But he still managed to become a fan-favorite during his 11 years in the league.


A wolf in Sochi? Jimmy Kimmel could be the man behind the viral video

If we’ve learned anything from the Olympics, it’s that stray dogs are a common sighting in Sochi. But what about stray wolves?

On Wednesday, American luger Kate Hansen posted a video to her YouTube page with the caption, “I’m pretty sure this is a wolf wandering my hall in Sochi.” However, it seems the video could be another one of Jimmy Kimmel’s YouTube hoaxes.

Not long ago, it was Kimmel who fooled us all with the “Worst Twerk Fail EVER” video, in which he got a stunt woman to twerk her way into a candle and catch her leg on fire. The Internet erupted before Kimmel finally took ownership of the video. And now, the “#SochiFail: Wolf in my hall” video has garnered more than a million views. Could this be Kimmel’s latest?

According to Time, the United States Luge Association informed Inside Edition of the hoax and claimed that Hansen will Skype into Kimmel’s show tonight.

'Frozen': Impressions master Christina Bianco covers 'Let It Go' as Britney, Adele, and Idina Menzel -- VIDEO


Back in August, the world was introduced to New York actress Christina Bianco, an Off Broadway staple who gained viral-video status with her incredible impressions of 19 different divas singing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” (5 million views and probably still counting).

Now Bianco is back with the same palette of divas singing a particularly different tune — one that you’ve probably not stopped singing since December. Performing “Let It Go” from Disney’s small indie arthouse drama Frozen, Bianco demonstrates once again why she is a truly distinguished maestra of impressions.

First, she offers a little Idina Menzel (the Tony-winning actress who served up a little slice of vibrato perfection on the original track). Next, she dives into Demi Lovato’s pop version, which is cool, I guess, if you’re the kind of person who prefers Disney Radio to Disney Theatricals. Then Bianco really delivers, running through the gamut of Britney Spears and Adele to Julie Andrews, Alanis Morissette, and the rest in her bag of tricks.

Promotional baby for 'Devil's Due' terrifies New Yorkers -- VIDEO


Potential good samaritans were punished Monday when upon looking in an abandoned stroller, a demonic-looking baby popped up and screamed.

The gag was a publicity stunt for Devil’s Due, a horror movie about a pregnant woman who discovers her baby is actually Satan’s after she experiences some worse-than-usual side effects.

Devil’s Due, starring Zach Gilford, Allison Miller, and Sam Anderson, comes out Friday. To hold you over until then, watch the video below of the stunt: READ FULL STORY

'Paul's Home Alone Christmas Card' will leave you thirsty for more -- VIDEO


Sorry, everybody — some guy named Paul Little just totally outdid your family’s Christmas card. (Even you, Kardashians.)

See, Paul likes the classic family comedy/harrowing horror film (if you’re looking at it from the burglars’ perspective) Home Alone. He likes it so much that this year, he created a virtual Christmas card that cuts together all of the movie’s best moments — with Paul’s own face superimposed over that of each actor, speaking their lines with the perfect intonation and attitude. (He’s certainly not what the French call les incompetents.)

Watch the magic below; it’s better than a shopping bag filled with milk, eggs, and fabric softener. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!

Chuck Norris does own 'epic splits' between two airplanes, because he's Chuck Norris -- VIDEO


You think Jean-Claude Van Damme’s epic splits between two gargantuan Volvo trucks was a feat of physical prowess? Or Channing Tatum’s spoof was milk-out-of-your-nose funny? Well, Chuck Norris has the strength and charisma to obliterate both versions with his own epic splits because [insert your circa-2005 Chuck Norris fact here].

In the Chuck Norris version — which or may not have actually involved Mr. Norris — we see the Texas Ranger performing the splits between two airplane wings, carrying a fleet of men on both shoulders, who are also arranged into a lighted Christmas tree, because, like, holidays and terminal velocity and aerodynamics and stuff.

The parody vid was created by Delov Digital, a Hungarian creative agency.

Watch the Chuck Norris version below (and have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, partner):

Martin Freeman is one tricksy hobbit in this supercut -- NSFW VIDEO

Anyone familiar with The Hobbit official production videos and/or the generally great character that is Martin Freeman knows that the Bilbo Baggins actor has a propensity to “flip the bird” in behind-the-scenes footage.

A YouTube user uploaded a supercut featuring many, if not all, of Freeman’s flipping moments during The Hobbit filming and promotional experience. What could come across as an exasperated actor venting his frustration on being put on the spot, Freeman makes light of it, crafting the use of the middle finger as a delightful running joke.

Check out the video now, ahead of it becoming an inevitable DVD/Blu-ray extra. Warning: NSFW for explicit gesture (but you knew that already):
