  1. Ryan Reynolds Invites Little Deadpool Fan to Set for a Special Make-a-Wish

    I'm very happy young Tony Acevedo was able to get a Deadpool set visit through the Make-a-Wish Foundation as we've previously learned that film will DEFINITELY be rated R. All the fun, none of the expletives!

  2. DCTV Podcasts Team Up To Fight Cancer In Superpowered Marathon This Weekend

    You don't have to be super-powered to do some good in the world.

    For those of you who don't know, I'm a co-host of a fan podcast called Supergirl Radio, which is educating the world about Kara Zor-El in anticipation of the upcoming Supergirl series on CBS! Even cooler is that Supergirl Radio is part of a DC TV Podcasts family that includes Quiver: The Green Arrow Podcast, The Flash Podcast, and Legends of Gotham. Usually, we just team up to talk superhero television. Now, we're teaming up for a much more important cause: to fight cancer.

  4. Downton Abbey’s Rob-James Collier Gives Us the Downton/Star Wars Mash-Up We Didn’t Realize We Wanted

    "Why must you always walk in the light, Bates?"

    I always knew that Thomas Barrow on Downton Abbey used the Dark Side of the Force. Thankfully, the actor who plays him, Rob-James Collier, is much less dark. Using only his iPhone during his down time on the set of Downton (they apparently have a lot of it on this set), he's created a Downton/Star Wars mash-up film for charity.

  5. Robert Downey Jr. Wants You To Come To The Ultron Premiere With Him, Is Still Charming As Heck

    He will AWESOME THE CRAP OUT OF YOU

    This guy. I think, if RDJ made a video as charming as this about it, there are very few things in this world I wouldn't do. Plus, all you have to do to enter is donate $10 to help Julia's House, a hospice for sick children (win win!). There are also lots of RDJ-themed perks if you happen to have as much money as Stark himself.

  9. Charity Rejects Donation From Scumbag Redditors Feeling Guilty About Posting Nude Celeb Photos [Update: Two Charities]

    HAH-ha! You're still assholes!

    This whole thing with nude photos of dozens of celebrities being stolen and distributed for any jackass with an Internet connection to ogle has been a wretched hive of scum and villainy from start to finish. But this is one update—just one—that makes me smile.

  10. Karen Gillan, Natalie Dormer, and Katie McGrath Did the Ice Bucket Challenge, But Only One Of Them Dressed As the Pink Power Ranger

    With bonus Red Power Ranger John Cho!

    But who was it? Wait in suspense no longer. This shining example of geek is...

  11. Olivia Wilde Uses Breast Milk For Her Ice Bucket Challenge (Kinda) (Not Really)

    The breast ice bucket challenge video yet.

    Actress Olivia Wilde later tweeted that the liquid used for her own take on the Ice Bucket Challenge is not breast milk, because "my boobs aren't that generous". Rather, her saying it is appears to be a cunning ploy to hit two birds with one stone: Donating to ALS charities and destigmatizing public breast feeding, the latter a subject Wilde has been open about in the past.

  12. Chris Evans Suits Up for the Dapperest Ice Bucket Challenge Ever, Plus Lynda Carter, Matt Smith, and More

    We're waiting, Tilda Swinton.

    The MVP for this round of Ice Bucket Challenges ($41 million raised and counting) is Chris Evans, not just for wearing a suit (though thanks for that, sir), but also for putting proper thought into what constitutes "ice water." He’s exactly right—you have to let the ice melt a little, or else the water doesn’t get cold and the cubes bounce right off! Captain America, you nerd.

  13. Samsung Turns the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Into an Ad, Makes Us Cringe

    Seriously?

    Look, people have their own opinions on the ALS ice bucket challenge. I personally think it's doing a great job at bringing attention to a good cause and can't fault it or anyone who participates, and it's also entertaining, which only helps spread the word. I've heard complaints that people focus more on the ice bucket aspect than they do on remembering what it's for, but this Samsung video is the first time I've actually felt like I was seeing an ad instead of a charity effort.

  14. Star-Lord Chris Pratt Visited LA Children’s Hospital In Costume Yesterday, Because Of Course He Did

    Go on without me.

    No. I mean, yes. But also no. This is unhandle-able.

  15. This Morning In the Ice Bucket Challenge: Pedro Pascal, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Creepy Ronald McDonald (??), And More

    “Plant a tree for Groot”

    Look at Vin Diesel, bringing cinematography to his Ice Bucket Challenge! Also in today's roundup: Zoe Saldana, Emma Stone, Sophie Turner, Pedro Pascal, James Gunn, Ben Affleck, an extremely intense Dulé Hill, and... Ronald McDonald? Please. Corporate mascots. Can we not?

  16. Dave Bautista Isn’t Screwing Around with His Ice Bucket Challenge; Hemsworth, Sackhoff, D’Onofrio Also Accept

    I like to think no one's challenged Scarlett Johansson yet because they're all too scared.

    What's that? Two Thors accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? (Yes, Vincent D'Onofrio counts as a Thor–haven't you seen Adventures in Babysitting?) Katee Sackhoff's Ice Bucket Challenge is the most heartfelt I've seen so far—sadly, it is unembeddable, but you can see it here. The golden belt for this round (that's a wrestling thing, right?) has to go to Bautista, above, who isn't here for any weak ice bullcrap.

  17. Downton Abbey Uses Water Bottle Goof To Raise Money For Charity

    "Caaaaaaaarsooooooooon!"

    What do you do when you make a giant goof and leave a water bottle in the frame of a 1920s era photoshoot? Turn it into something hugely positive, of course! (Or, if you're us, photoshop tentacle dildos into the picture.)

  18. Tom Hiddleston Accepts The Ice Bucket Challenge In Slow-Mo, John Barrowman Is Wet And Yelling

    To be fair, that's the point I would have paused at anyway.

    Tom Hiddleston is here per Nathan Fillion's request to prove that faster isn't always funnier.

  19. Chris Pratt Mixes the Ice Bucket Challenge Up, While Nathan Fillion Goes the More Traditional Route

    Vertical video. *twitch*

    Yesterday we showed you Robert Downey Jr.'s Ice Bucket Challenge video, the gist of which is that you get a bucket of ice water dumped on your head in support of ALS charities. As you can see above, Chris Pratt gave the challenge and amusing (vodka) twist. Dave Bautista, the gauntlet has been dropped. You know what to do.

  20. Robert Downey Jr. Gets Doused In A Bucket Of Ice – For Charity

    Stay frosty, Iron Man.

    Robert Downey Jr. (aka the world's best human) has decided to participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS - and you'll probably love the person that gets to do the icing. And, actually, the people he challenges in return.
