'The Muppets': Who was your favorite celebrity cameo?

I walked into The Muppets this weekend completely unsure of what to expect. For the past few weeks — save EW’s cover story (woo for self promotion) — I’d generally avoided any and all stories, blurbs, and clips that threatened to spoil the movie and its surprises for me. When I’m excited about a movie — and, if I’m being honest, there aren’t that many I get excited about every year — there is no greater sin than spoiling it for me. (TV is, obviously, a different story.)

My patience was rewarded this weekend when I walked into the unspoiled glory of The Muppets and was treated to a number of great cameos, including one from [Spoiler alert, obviously…] READ FULL STORY

'Star Wars' stands up to cancer, with the help of Andy Samberg, Emma Stone, Seth Rogen, and more! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Stand Up To Cancer — the initiative established three years ago to help sponsor cutting-edge cancer research — has teamed up with the folks at Star Wars for a special line of Star Wars-themed SU2C t-shirts called “Use the Force for Good.”

To mark the event — which coincides with the release of the Star Wars Blu-ray editions — a gaggle of geek-friendly celebs have gathered together to express their love of Star Wars and their commitment to SU2C. You can check out the video of Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Seth Rogen, Aziz Ansari, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Ken Jeong, Ed Helms, Jaime King, and Samuel L.

Comedy review: Zach Galifianakis rocks with Queens of the Stone Age jabs, bits about 9/11 and Sarah Palin

Dear Rock Stars: You might want to think twice before asking Zach Galifianakis for freebies. The star of The Hangover movies gave Queens of the Stone Age a little more than they asked when they called his manager for free tickets to his sold-out stand-up gig at Largo at the Coronet in Los Angeles Wednesday night. They got prime seats in Row F and a whole lock of mockery to boot. “I don’t know you f—-ing guys!” the comedian yelled at the band, seated in the all-ages crowd of 270 fans, which ranged from hoodie-wearing hipsters to bearded, bespectacled burly men to indie chicks and comedy nerds. “Can we get tickets?” he mocked in a whiny voice as Queens of the Stone Age members Josh Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, and Michael Shuman laughed on. “Let me Google them and see who the f— they are! I don’t know you motherf—ers!” READ FULL STORY

'Bored to Death' trailer offers nothing...but fun!

The new, summery trailer for HBO’s Bored to Death (returning Oct. 10) contains no scoop, no teasers, no real insight as to what season 3 has in store for us. But here are five gritty Coney Island delights that Jason, Zach & Ted’s Excellent Adventure does offer:

5. Beastie Boys soundtrack
1. Ted Danson drinking a martini on a carousel

What more do you really want out of summer?


Did Zach Galifianakis give away the plot of 'The Hangover Part III'? And, if so, do we like it?

Never mind the grumbling haters and the 35 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. With The Hangover Part II continuing to slash and burn its way through the box office ($384 million worldwide and counting), a third trip down amnesia lane for the Wolfpack is clearly inevitable. In the new issue of Rolling Stone, cover boy Zach Galifianakis confirms, “They want to do a Hangover III… I’m getting fricking phone calls already.” And he doesn’t stop there. In the interview, Galifianakis seems to spill the beans on the third film’s storyline as well, suggesting that the plot for The Hangover Part III could center on his demented manchild Alan escaping from a mental institution with a little help from his friends.  READ FULL STORY

'The Hangover Part III': What should be in the three-quel?


The Hangover Part II just hit theaters this weekend, but in Hollywood, it’s never to early to talk sequels. Director Todd Phillips already floated the idea at a press conference last week, telling reporters that the three-quel would be “very much a new idea,” and joking that he’s open to accepting bribes from cities who would like to be the next Vegas or Bangkok. But if a third Hangover does happen, what should be in it? Here are a few of our suggestions: READ FULL STORY

'Between Two Ferns': Will Ferrell would like Zach Galifianakis to get the fat out of his ears

Normally, when a celebrity joins Zach Galifianakis on “Between Two Ferns,” the passive-aggressive host sprinkles enough seeds of discomfort and resentment that ultimately, a confrontation blooms. But Will Ferrell is different. The comic movie-star, dressed like your Minnesota uncle during his one trip to Malibu, had Galifianakis eating out of his hand — and his mouth, for that matter. In the end, it was Ferrell who’d had enough of the conversation. Take a look after the jump.


Zach Galifianakis rips January Jones: 'Everybody's going to forget about you in a few years'

On “Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis,” guests can expect to be treated rudely by the insecure host. But there doesn’t seem to be anything inspired or playful about Galifianakis’ recent remarks about Mad Men beauty January Jones. After a writer from ShortList.com mentioned that Jones had named the Hangover star as the “most naturally funny person she’d ever met,” Galifianakis basically scoffed. “If I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other,” he said. “It was crazy. I was at a party — I’d never met her — and she was like, ‘Come sit down.’ So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now.’ So I say, ‘January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so f—ing be nice,’ and I got up and left. And she thinks that’s funny?” READ FULL STORY

Donald Trump won't run for president. But why?

Donald Trump announced yesterday that he would not seek the presidency, and today, the new question is, Why? Why did the real-estate titan and reality-TV star take his name out of the running for the Republican nomination? According to Anthony Baxter, he’s responsible for spoiling Trump’s potential campaign. The filmmaker, whose You’ve Been Trumped yet-unsold documentary chronicles a Scottish seaside resort’s fight against Trump’s planned golf course, told the Hollywood Reporter, “I do think Mr. Trump realized he would be under severe scrutiny if he actually ran for president, and our film had become part of that dialogue.” READ FULL STORY
