Here’s something we didn’t expect to find out when we interviewed Daniel Radcliffe: the man formerly known as Harry Potter is a huge football fan. Yes, you read that right: the British actor, whose film Kill Your Darlings is out next week, has adopted our national past time as his own. He’s even got a pick for this weekend’s big Giants-Eagles game, and spoke very passionately about who he wants to win. But which team is his favorite? You’ve got to watch the video to find out!

We had a great chat with Blair Underwood on Very VH1 yesterday, during which the actor chatted with us about his new NBC drama, Ironside. Our favorite moment was learning how Blair actually researched his role on LA Law in the 80s by spending time with President Obama…way before most of us knew who he was. Check out the amazing story in the clip above.
Pablo Schreiber is having a moment. As menacing corrections officer George “Pornstache” Mendez on Orange Is The New Black he stood out among so many amazing characters thanks to his horrifying, and at times hilarious, creepiness. With a simultaneous stint on Law & Order: SVU as serial killer William Lewis, Pablo’s perfected the art of playing monsters. Now he’s stepping out of the dark side to play good cop Virgil on Ironside, NBC’s new cop drama debuting tonight at 10/9c. (The show is actual a remake of one that aired on NBC from 1967-1975.) We chatted with the actor over the phone while he was on a break from shooting Ironside in Los Angeles and talked about fatherhood, fandoms and how Dolph Lundgren inspired that ridiculous Pornstache haircut.
At the Emmys this past Sunday, Daily Show correspondent John Oliver said what everyone was surely thinking: that we’d all rather be home watching the second to last episode of Breaking Bad. Now just a few days separate us from the final 60 minutes of Vince Gilligan‘s masterpiece, a show more addictive than the pure meth its main character sells. Every fan has a theory about how it is all going to end (including the author of this here post), and so we asked famous fans walking the Emmys red carpet to predict what happens to Walt and Jesse. Their theories gave us the chills – watch and freak out to the video above and share your predictions in the comments.
[And yes - there are spoilers. Come on now, people.]
It’s tough being a mom in Hollywood. Sure, life is luxurious and cushioned by cash, but the constant obsession with “post-baby bodies” and the scrutiny over parenting is relentless at times. We caught up with the Emmy-nominated Connie Britton, beloved actress with perfect hair and mom to toddler Yoby, who had this to say about her experiences as a mom in the spotlight.
Congrats, Vampire Academy fandom! Sarah Hyland is in love with you. We caught up with the Modern Family star at the Emmys, where she praised the uber-talented and committed fans of her upcoming film Vampire Academy, one of the next big YA book-to-movie adaptations. “They’re so amazing and supportive and the best fans,” she said. “And very, very talented with their fan art.”
Remember that adorable dough-faced QT who played the loathsome Fredrick Zoller in Inglourious Basterds? Well that actor, Daniel Bruhl, is about to break out in a major way with his amazing performance as Formula One racer Niki Lauda in Ron Howard‘s latest, Rush. Brühl’s well-known in his native Germany (apparently Goodbye, Lenin! is a great film to start with if you’re looking to get your feet wet) but with Rush and The Fifth Estate coming out this fall he’s destined to follow in the footsteps of Christoph Waltz and Jean Dujardin, fellow European actors who have made it huge in Hollywood and snagged an award or two along the way. Just last week it was announced that Brühl signed with management firm Anonymous Content, which reps stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone. And while he told us at the Toronto Film Festival that he’s “not thinking” about the possibility of being nominated for an award, we have already have him on our Oscar short list.
2012 was a tough year for Taylor Kitsch, headlining big movies that bombed spectacularly at the box office. (Don’t remember John Carter? That’s okay, no one else does either.) But the extraordinarily handsome actor, who sucked fans in with his angsty portrayal of Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights, is back on the big screen in a movie you’ve probably never heard of.
It’s always fun to chat with Kristen Bell, the charming star of the upcoming Veronica Mars movie and — most recently — The Lifeguard, a dark drama about a 30-year-old’s early midlife crisis. In the film, her character quits her journalism job, moves home, snags a lifeguarding gig and romances a local 16-year-old boy. It’s a raw look at those life choices that are wayyyy wrong but we sometimes make anyway, shoving best interests aside for impulse and lust.
There’s something almost too accurate about Drinking Buddies, the new film from mumblecore king Joe Swanburg. The movie does a wonderful job exploring the simmering (and sometimes awkward) sexual tension between two brewery co-workers, played by Jake Johnson and Olivia Wilde. All the drunk conversations and inebriated, awkward moments just felt a bit too authentic, too close to conversations we’ve had after tossing back a pint or 10. And now we know the reason why!
