I'm the copy chief & an occasional writer for The Stir. I really like grammar and words and very nerdy books, which is weird to most people. I live in uptown New York City, but you can always find me at a Pittsburgh Steelers bar during football season on Sunday. I like the Steelers so much that I even blog about them.
Some of the best aspects of working on the Internet? Remaining relatively faceless and being able to correct one's mistakes immediately. When you work on live TV, sadly -- yet hilariously for the rest of us -- this is so not the case. Take, for instance, Chris Parente, a Denver-based reporter who hadn't seen the movie he was supposed to be talking to the actors about -- and they called him out on it. Yep, starring in The Skeleton Twins, Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig had a huge chuckle over Parente's slip-up, and it's definitely a must-see.
I suppose if one does make a flub as large as this one, it's good to do it with two extremely funny, talented actors, who are able to take it in stride and uncontrollably laugh afterward.
You just have to see their reaction when Parente asks about Wiig's supposed "nude scene" in the film he clearly hadn't watched.
Have you heard? Sherlock Holmes, the most intelligent, snarky, brilliant, quick-witted, sharp, gifted man in all of literature, can't seem to pronounce the word "penguin." Well, at least the actor who plays him, that is. In a viral video that's making the hilarious rounds on Reddit, much to the delight of fans of the series Sherlock as well as lovely, high cheekbones and piercing blue eyes, Benedict Cumberbatch struggles to pronounce "penguin" when narrating a documentary. It's 20 seconds of pure delight and weirdness that will just make your damn day.
This is the third time Reznor and Ross and director David Fincher got together to make a soundtrack; the first two were for The Social Network and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Obviously, Gone Girl has a completely different vibe, but Reznor, Ross, and Fincher have certainly upped the unsettling factor, showing there's a lot more to the facade of the perfect suburban couple.
Then, for a visual companion, be sure to check out the newest scene released as well, when Amy (Rosamund Pike) meets Nick (Ben Affleck). Of course, it starts off well -- but little do they know what their future marriage has in store for them!
What is it about Chris Pratt? Ever since he charmed the pants off everyone while making the media rounds promoting Guardians of the Galaxy, he's come across as one of the most adorable, funny, sweet, hilarious, likable guys ever. Not to mention that he's smokin' hot. That certainly helps matters.
And now he's at it again! Pratt and SNL cast member Kate McKinnon got together to film a few amazing promos for the show. The 35-year-old will be hosting for the very first time. Well deserved, dude. Singer ArianaGrande, who also shot to stardom seemingly out of nowhere, will be the musical guest.
Emma Watson is proof that no good deed goes unpunished. Recently, (normal) folks have been giving her major props after her passionate speech for gender equality at the United Nations. But apparently some bigots nowadays still aren't for, you know, equality and all that jazz ...
A report from Business Insider claims that a user from 4chan, you know, the site behind those other infamous celeb nude photo leaks, put up a countdown. They warned that Emma could become the next star to have her iCloud hacked so the world could see her most private photos on her cellphone/whatever iCloud is.
