While I was on an insane high from hearing Sophie Turner and Saoirse Ronan might play young Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, I have found a new low in hearing we likely won't be seeing Sir Patrick Stewart or Ian McKellen at all.Read More
Sir Patrick Stewart
Just crying truth tears at my desk now, thank you.
After nine years of truthiness and patriotic rigor, Stephen Colbert signed off The Colbert Report last night in one of the most flawless TV finales I can ever remember seeing.Read More
I just want to squeeze him!
Look! Look at his little feet! And Peter Baelish's little goatee! And new versions of Sansa and Daenerys and Jon Snow! Everything is wonderful and nothing hurt -- except waiting for the next book and season, of course.Read More
We'll be eagerly awaiting her first Vine.
The Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II, sent her first tweet! She took off a glove to do it. I wonder if she then used it to smack the iPad and challenge it to a duel?Read More
It's okay, Charles, the '80s will do that to you.
X-Men sticklers will tell you - Professor Xavier is as bald as a cueball. But when you're casting a leading man for your film about young, hip mutants, you couldn't possibly make him shave his head. No one finds that appealing. Nope. But as timelines converge it seems the creators of the franchise may be starting to fold to the pressure.

Ice, ice, Picard.
We've been eagerly awaiting Patrick Stewart and Benedict Cumberbatch's contribution to the Ice Bucket Challenge since the two Trekkies were nominated several days ago, and holy Khan-in-the-shower were these videos ever worth the wait. On another note, what is that sound Cumberbatch makes at the start of his video? It's haunting.Read More
Resistance was futile.
What do you do when you want to propose to your Trekkie significant other, but Jean-Luc Picard isn't available? Get an assist from Sir Patrick Stewart's sir-from-another-sire, Ian McKellen! This video is beautiful, and not just because it's clear Stewart is touched to be included in the couple's special moment--Brett Best (now happily engaged) is also so sincere and sweet throughout. Have fun exploring the universe, you crazy kids!Read More
MAKE IT SO DAMMIT!
I mean, did you really think they could keep up the effort of being that awesome on a rigid reality TV filming schedule? I know I couldn't.Read More
Dial it back a bit, boys.
Stop trying to make cigarettes look cool. Stop trying to make yourself look cool with cigarettes. It is not working. And if it is working, congratulations, you're convincing people to take up an unhealthy addiction. Also, stop taking yourself so seriously. I guess if I have one message here, it's "Stop." But definitely check out the rest of this photo series from photographer Szilvia Molnar. (via Jezebel)Read More
