A video of a young Keith Urban competing on the Aussie TV talent show New Faces in 1983 was uploaded to YouTube last month. While a few country music and radio station blogs spotted it, it needs to be adored by the masses.

Remember WHENs-day: Watch Jeremy Renner fight Pink in 'Trouble' -- VIDEO

jeremy-renner-pink.jpg

Jeremy Renner has been, well, a lot of things: a superhero, a spy, a soldier, and even a witch hunter. (Is that called a “slayer”? Never mind, that can’t be right.)

Since shooting onto the A-list in 2008 with The Hurt Locker, the actor’s been starring in blockbusters and Oscar contenders, including the currently much-buzzed-about American Hustle. That’s probably all well and good in Renner’s world, but in PopWatch world, we like to remember him in a certain (arguably) iconic role he did 10 years ago (!) before taking over every action franchise.

May we present… the music video from 2003 for Pink’s “Trouble,” in which the young Renner played “Bad Boy Sheriff.” READ FULL STORY

Shonda Rhimes loves herself a 'human bomb' scene

Thursday’s Scandal, in which a woman wearing a bomb vest takes nine people hostage, instantly reminded us of Shonda Rhimes’ mega-memorable bomb scare from Grey’s Anatomy — a two-episode weep fest in the middle of 2006′s season 2. Thanks to the magic of Netflix and my raging insomnia, I stayed up to re-watch “It’s the End of the World” and “As We Know It” — effectively shooting a bazooka into my heart. It was an accident! I feel fine.

I highly recommend revisiting these eps at a more reasonable hour, if only to remind yourself, while sobbing, that ugh, Grey’s Anatomy used to be SO. GOOD. (Video below.) READ FULL STORY

Having already gotten to know Suits star Patrick J. Adams better with an EW Pop Culture Personality Test, it’s only right that we bring in Meghan Markle, who plays his onscreen love interest Rachel, for questioning. And her answers do not disappoint. Watch the video below to find out which Beverly Hills, 90210 actor was her first celebrity crush and which Baywatch lifeguard received the only fan letter she’s ever written. READ FULL STORY

Once upon a time, Aaron Paul was an atrocious actor on '90210' -- VIDEO

Aaron-Paul-90210.jpg

Note to Aaron Paul: You don’t want to mess with Donna Martin.

Nowadays, Aaron Paul may be best-known for his Emmy-winning work as Jesse “yo b****” Pinkman on Breaking Bad. But in the mid-’90s he was just another cute high school kid whose big break — and first on-screen kiss — came from dropping by Beverly Hills, 90210 for a brief part as a truly cringe-worthy Romeo in West Beverly Hills High’s production of Romeo and Juliet. Come for the atrociously over-the-top line delivery, stay for Donna Martin’s (Tori Spelling) small smile offstage.

To quote a shocked Paul after seeing the clip on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, “That was awful.” We’re pretty sure he meant amazing. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Throwback Thursday: Ryan Reynolds wasn't quite as smooth at 'Fifteen' -- VIDEO

This weekend at the box office, Ryan Reynolds is competing with himself, thanks to his voice work in the just-opened Turbo and his turn as a dearly departed cop in R.I.P.D., arriving Friday. But back in 1990 — 23 years ago! — he was a 13-year-old actor getting his start on the Canadian soap Hillside, which aired on Nickelodeon as Fifteen.

As you’ll see from the clip below, Reynolds wasn’t always the ladies’ man he grew up to be in Van Wilder and The Proposal. Instead, he sheepishly tells his crush she “always looks good” as she awkwardly laughs and makes a run for it. In the ensuing fantasy sequence, he really has it together as a Rolling Stone cover boy (if only he knew what it takes to land the RS cover now!) and a rock star with countless “CDs” (remember those?).

But one thing young Billy has right about his future is this: “Some guys have it, and some guys don’t.” Looks like Reynolds had it.

Watch the turn-of-the-decade amazingness below:

Movie Math: What 'Pacific Rim' borrows from 'Deep Blue Sea' (but not from 'Point Break')

PopWatch Confessional: I can't stop watching 'Pitch Perfect' on cable

There are movies we’ll watch every time we spot them on cable because we love them. For me, that’s Apollo 13. Then, there are movies that we’ll get sucked into because it’s summer and there’s nothing else on. This is particularly dangerous if you have the HBO family of channels — East and West feeds. The film that’s currently in heavy rotation is Pitch Perfect, which is genuinely great and therefore guilt-free – until you catch yourself tweeting about having a “toner” for Jesse (Skylar Astin), suddenly noticing how well that T-shirt fit him in the dorm room, and thinking of songs that could have LEGALLY followed his rendition of “Feels Like the First Time” in the Riff Off (“Like a Virgin, touched for the very first time” — if it hadn’t been used in an earlier round). I spotted the movie last night at 12:30 a.m. on HBOE, and didn’t stay up watching it, which would’ve been a triumph if I didn’t instead fast-forward through the airing I’d previously recorded on my DVR.

Your turn. What movies have you been repeatedly getting sucked into now that there’s nothing else on? More examples: In recent weeks, I’ve seen First Daughter – the movie starring Katie Holmes and Michael Keaton, not Mandy Moore and Mark Harmon – enough times that I feel I must finally admit, publicly, that I’ve forgiven Marc Blucas for Riley, his character on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I’ve also watched What’s Your Number? starring Anna Faris and Chris Evans repeatedly, and I know I’m not alone:

Nick Offerman's ode to 'Highlander': 'The greatest film about becoming a man that I've ever seen'

In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly out today, we asked Nick Offerman, currently in theaters in the coming-of-age indie The Kings of Summer, to play movie critic and name a film he loves, a film he hates, and a film he can’t wait to see. Below, we present his full description of his beloved Highlander.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The movie that you love?
NICK OFFERMAN: The 1986 classic Highlander: It’s definitely a movie for the fellas. I recently learned that Chris Pratt had never seen it because he’s too much of a young whippersnapper, and I immediately booked a screening room [laughs] and sat in there, just the two of us. It’s got a supernatural element, it’s got incredible broad sword fights. Clancy Brown as the Kurgan is unbeatable as the greatest film villain ever. He’s such a badass. And to top it all off, it has an incredibly rousing soundtrack of songs by Queen. When you render the exciting, hard-hitting action and heartstring-tugging romance of the film to the dulcet tones of Freddie Mercury’s voice, you’re hardpressed not to come out on top.
