Seth Rogen went to Washington. D.C. on Wednesday, to speak before the Senate Appropriation Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services about Alzheimer’s research. Like many members of Hollywood before him, Rogen is using his notoriety for good, and has a close connection to the disease that affects over five million people in the United States alone.

After the coldest winter, Scandal returns tonight–hopefully with much more of Scott Foley in a towel. With a new season of House of Cards now available on Netflix and Homeland and Veep continually in the TV conversation, D.C.-centric shows are taking over our DVR. And we’re not exactly mad about that.
Our four-part television event, The Tanning Of America: One Nation Under Hip Hop, concludes tonight at 11 PM ET. We’ve spent this week catching up with some of the most influential people in media to find out how hip hop changed their lives, and extend the conversation that’s been sparked by the program. We already heard from Joe La Puma of Complex Media, Rafi D’Angelo of SoLetsTalkAbout.com, Hot 97′s Miss Info, MTV’s Rob Markman, and REVOLT TV’s Sharon Carpenter. Now it’s time to discuss the culture’s impact with downtown NYC strategy director Grace Gordon.
Every year, there are always one or two Oscars snubs (and upsets) that really hurt. In years past, it was Argo‘s Ben Affleck not getting nominated for Best Director, Sidney Poitier for In the Heat of the Night, or Jimmy Stewart’s emotional turn in Vertigo. This year, it was Oprah Winfrey‘s riveting performance in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. Say what you will about the film, but there was no discounting Winfrey’s turn as Gloria Gaines. She carried the film but, sadly, could not do enough to earn the movie a single nomination at this year’s Academy Awards.
But that’s where we come in. With Oprah out for The Butler, we decided to recast her in several of this year’s Oscar-nominated films. Damn the Academy! If they don’t want to recognize her for that role, then we’ll put in everything and see if they can get away with it. Because let’s face it: Every movie is made better with Oprah in it.

Charismatic and charming as always, Lachey discusses his excitement about filming the AM show, and what he thinks it will take to be a great host . His answer? Be ready for anything and be an open book, of course. Hmmm sounds like this season will be one to watch. And of course, Lachey gushes and his little Tater Tot, Camden, who’s already 18 months now. Goodness, how the time flies! Finally, he makes us swoon with a live rendition of the lullaby he sings to his son and it will make your heart completely turn to mush. Don’t believe us? Watch now and find our for yourself!
