Story time, kids! Once upon a time, James Spader was not the slightly bloated, sometimes disturbingly zen man you’ve seen on TV in The Practice, Boston Legal, The Office and now his new show, The Blacklist.

Check out our chat with Jamie Campbell Bower, Lily Collins and Kevin Zegers, the stars of The Mortal Instruments, to hear their thoughts on the film’s two love triangles.

Happy Spirit Day! 10 Bullies Who Learned Their Lesson

Mean Girls, Back to the Future, Heathers and Glee

Happy Spirit Day, everyone! If you’re not wearing purple today, you can still show your support for bullied victims and LGBT youth in all sorts of other ways (visit GLAAD.org for some ideas). We decided to mark this occasion with a look back at the meanest and cruelest bullies of pop culture who got their glorious comeuppance before our very eyes. From Heathers and Back to the Future to Pretty Little Liars and Glee, watching the likes of Heather and Biff get put in their place has made us feel much better about our own torturers. Maybe they even made a few real-life bullies think twice about what they were doing. We hope so!
