Earlier this week, the brother of Toronto mayor Rob Ford got his feelings hurt when the siblings didn’t get their picture taken with Kevin Spacey backstage at a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live. On Saturday, Spacey attempted to remedy the situation via this awesome tweet:

Now that it’s crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide, it would be safe to say the Oscar-winning film Frozen has become a global phenomenon, partly thanks to the song “Let It Go” and the countless covers posted online. Now YouTube has compiled a list of the top 10 covers of the song posted on its site. The popular Africanized Tribal Cover of the song by Alex Boye takes the No. 1 spot with over 21 million views.

George Takei’s hailing us and we’re putting him on screen. The Star Trek star is the focus of a new documentary, To Be Takei, which premieres at Sundance this week and he’s taking a few minutes to talk about the film and his extraordinary life with EW and YouTube at the Park City, Utah fest. You can participate in the Google+ hangout live Sunday, Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. PT/7 p.m. MT/9 p.m. ET by sharing your questions for Takei and the film’s director Jennifer M. Kroot using the hashtags #EWTalksSundance and #YouTubeSundance or by posting in the comments below.
These five siblings took a page out of Disney’s The Lion King to give their parents something special in a very memorable way. The present: An adorable new puppy.
The presentation: A full-scale “Circle of Life” reenactment, complete with interpretive dancing, elephant impersonations, and a recreation of the moment when Rafiki holds Simba up for all of Pride Rock to see. (Though we’re pretty sure the vocalists in the film aren’t actually singing “edamame, penguins and pajamas.”) Check out the home movie below.
In this modern age of technology, George Takei definitely knows how to live long and prosper.
The Star Trek actor and social media maven has teamed up with the AARP for a bi-weekly series on YouTube called Takei’s Take, a smart, funny, irreverent look at what is happening in the world of the Internet and technology and how it infiltrates our lives. EW was on location at YouTube Space LA where the series is filmed to talk to George about the show, how Martin Luther King Jr. played a role in getting him to join Twitter, and why human behavior is the root of all our (tech) problems.
Takei was first approached by AARP to create the series because of his already large social media presence, which includes over 930,000 followers on Twitter and over 5 millions likes on his Facebook page. “I love the idea of sharing technology and what’s trending today with the entire demographic.” Takei told EW. “Obviously I’m of the upper baby boom generation, the AARP generation.” It was that generation of 50+ who were the original Star Trek fans and now it’s their children (and in some cases even their children’s children) who Takei wants to reach. “This is something that should be attractive to all generations.” After launching in September, the series already has over 65,000 subscribers on YouTube and just finished filming the first season.
Though he admits he has help and guidance, Takei is proud to be the older face of technology today and go against negative stereotypes, which as an Asian-American Takei says he has had to deal with his entire life. “Society in general needs to be more enlightened not to buy into stereotypes. Some of these advances are being made by senior citizens. Einstein was a senior! He was the pioneer of the future society that we are building.” But Takei is well aware that there are two sides to everything. “There are some youngsters who are absolutely dysfunctional when it comes to technology. But we shouldn’t stereotype all young people.”

What do you get when you cross Doctor Who and The Hunger Games? You’ll find the answer in this hilariously imagined trailer spoof aptly titled The Doctor Games, which was uploaded to YouTube just in time for this Saturday’s 50th Anniversary Special and the premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
The trailer spoof finds all 13 Doctors (there are 13 because the creators chose to include both Peter Capaldi and John Hurt’s Doctors in the parody) transported into a Hunger Games-like arena where they must battle to the death until one remains as The Master. Only then can the winning Doctor fly off in the lone TARDIS at the center of the arena.
The best part about this parody is its attention to detail and the way they managed to incorporate all 13 Doctors’ individual quirks — Tom Baker’s Doctor uses his signature scarf to strangle people, for crying out loud!
Needless to say, if you’re a Whovian, you’ll definitely enjoy giving this a watch.
