'Awake' series finale: Chat live with creator Kyle Killen tonight at 10 p.m. ET

Awake creator Kyle Killen and star Jason Isaacs have promised fans a satisfying series finale with an emotional resolution in tonight’s final hour. Read our interview with them here and see what else they had to say (Isaacs talks Britten’s nudity, breakdown, and large notepad, while Killen explains why he’s not actively shopping the show to another network).

As a special treat for fans who’ve stayed with the show — we’ve seen tonight’s episode, and it’s worth it — Killen will join us here at 10 p.m ET/7 p.m. PT for a live chat during the finale’s East Coast airing to answer your questions. After the series premiere in March, 62 percent of readers predicted neither reality would end up being real and Britten would somehow learn both his wife Hannah and son Rex had survived the car crash. According to Isaacs, who — sorry sci-fi fans — says the series really was about psychological denial, one of the worlds is a dream. What’s your prediction now for which reality is real and how the series will end?

Zac Efron's biceps now the star of 'Men's Health' cover as well as 'The Lucky One'

If you can’t get enough of Zac Efron’s biceps in the trailer for The Lucky One, here’s something else to tide you over until the Nicholas Sparks adaptation hits theaters on April 20: Efron’s left bicep on the May cover of Men’s Health. You’re welcome. Should you want to read the article, as well as ogle more sexy armed forces-inspired photos, you’ll find out just how he got into Marine shape with the help of trainer Logan Hood, a former Navy SEAL. By the time the film wrapped, Efron had gained 18½ pounds. For four months, five days a week, he began his day at 5:30 a.m. with “a shake and, you know, an eight-egg omelet” before working out for an hour on a full stomach. He’d eat six to eight times a day, with shakes between meals, to reach his daily target of 3,500 calories. Read tips from his trainer here.

Other essential info, from the cover story: “He’s been having dinner lately with Warren Beatty, a master with wisdom to share.” (Again, you’re welcome.)

Oscar nominee Jonah Hill hosts Saturday Night Live for the second time this weekend, and for his round of promos, he’s naturally paired with his Superbad costar Bill Hader. And yes, the promos are as delightfully eccentric as you’d expect. Watch ‘em below. How high are your expectations for Hill? According to a recent PopWatch poll, Jimmy Fallon (28 percent), has been the best host this season, narrowly defeating Maya Rudolph (25 percent) and Melissa McCarthy (23 percent). Can Hill top him?

'Vampire Diaries': EP Julie Plec on the trending topics she'd like to see before March 15

We are 10 days away from a new episode of The Vampire Diaries, and as fans of The CW’s top-rated show proved over the weekend — when they got executive producer Julie Plec’s name trending on Twitter — they can mobilize, even on hiatus. “That’s the first time the fans have done that,” Plec said of the honor in an email to EW. “Quite a hilarious thrill, I must say.”

We asked Plec to name a few other phrases she’d love to see trend before the show’s March 15 return. Her top picks: READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan tells Matt Lauer she's 'clean and sober,' ready to prove herself -- VIDEO

Lindsay Lohan sat down with Matt Lauer for an interview that will air Thursday on Today. The show has released a preview clip in which Lohan, who’ll host Saturday Night Live this weekend, insists she’s clean and sober.

Lauer admits to Lohan he thought of her after Whitney Houston’s death earlier this month and asks if that news made her reflect on her past troubles: “Not really. I don’t want to go there. That’s kind of a scary, morbid thing to discuss,” she says. “But, I mean, maybe to some extent when I went to jail and being in that place, that was really terrifying for me.”

Lohan agrees with Lauer that substance abuse can rob people of their talent. “I’ve experienced things like that… and it’s a really sad factor that can come into play in people’s lives sometimes if you don’t recognize it. And a lot of people don’t like to, and I think I did that for a long time. I think I was scared and didn’t want to admit it to myself, let alone anyone else,” she says.  READ FULL STORY

Blur to headline Olympic Closing Ceremony Celebration Concert in Hyde Park


Blur is set to headline the Closing Ceremony Celebration Concert in London’s Hyde Park on Aug. 12. The concert, with a “Best of British” lineup that also includes The Specials and New Order, will be the final celebration organized by the city around the Games. Tickets go on sale this Friday, and concertgoers will be able to watch highlights of the day’s Closing Ceremony at Olympic Stadium on massive screens, which will fill the park from July 27 through Aug. 12. (Hyde Park will also be the site of the Opening Ceremony Celebration Concert on July 27; acts have not yet been announced. I nominate Duran Duran.)

Are you starting to catch Olympic Fever? Hearing “Bugler’s Dream” in a promo for NBC’s upcoming coverage of the Games whenever I watch an NBC show OnDemand is getting me excited, as is the prospect of continuing PopWatch’s tradition of naming a daily Olympic Stud of the Day. READ FULL STORY

Anne Rice wants Matt Bomer to play her new werewolf. We're okay with that.

Anne Rice has made no secret of the fact that if her new novel, The Wolf Gift, is turned into a film, she’d like Matt Bomer to star as the young San Francisco Observer reporter Reuben, who turns into a “Man Wolf” and is hunted while he searches for answers. As she reiterated on Good Morning America this morning (watch the interview below), she sees all her books as films as she’s writing them and always envisioned Bomer as her leading man. “I think he’s a charming, wonderful actor. I think he’s so good in White Collar, so funny and so fresh and so wonderfully handsome, and at the same time, sort of unassuming and charming,” she said.

A rep for Rice tells EW there’s no news of the book being optioned for a movie to share yet — “But soon I hope.” Are we all in favor of Bomer playing the werewolf? Here’s how Rice describes Reuben on the first page, to help you decide: READ FULL STORY

'Downton Abbey' polls: More than one kind of fever hits the castle!

SPOILER ALERT! Last night’s episode of Downton Abbey was a gasp-filled two hours. (Read our full recap.) Matthew sprung out of his chair to save Lavinia from injuring herself, and their wedding was back on. Violet told Matthew that Mary still loved him, and Matthew told Mary he couldn’t leave devoted Lavinia no matter how much he might want to — right before he kissed Mary while they were dancing, which Lavinia saw. Proving how selfless she truly was, Lavinia went ahead and died when she came down with the Spanish flu so Matthew wouldn’t have to decide between the two of them. Cora, who was also on death’s door, lived. (Americans!) She realized she had been neglecting Robert, whose grief over the war’s death toll made him kiss maid Jane TWICE before she tendered her resignation (with a third embrace). Sybil finally kissed Branson and ran away with him, but her sisters got her to return before they eloped. After much posturing, Robert ultimately gave them his blessing. Anna and Bates, knowing the police could soon be arresting him for the murder of his wife, wed so Anna would be kept informed and could “have her way with him” (shirtless Bates!) before he was, in the end, led off in handcuffs.

As we look ahead to next week’s season finale (another two-hour episode!), let’s take your temperature with the polls below…  READ FULL STORY

Adele sings for Anderson Cooper post-surgery -- VIDEO

You don’t have to wait until Sunday’s Grammys to find out if Adele sounds just as heavenly post-vocal cord surgery. During her 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper, which airs Sunday at 7 p.m. on CBS, she sang “Rolling in the Deep” for him a cappella. Watch a clip below. What’s better: That Adele had to sing it a cappella because her nails were too long to play the piano, or that Anderson admits he jogs to “Rolling in the Deep” every day?  READ FULL STORY
