Neil Patrick Harris talks about his 'creepy' role in 'Gone Girl'

Mario-Correa-Neil-Patrick-Harris

Given that he’s known to many as the fun-loving Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother, Neil Patrick Harris may not be immediately associated with the word “creepy.” But after viewers got a peek at Harris in the role of Desi Collings in the newest Gone Girl trailer, that quickly changed.

When Harris stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105), he sat down with Mario Correa to discuss his new role in David Fincher’s upcoming adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s hit novel, which is set to open the New York Film Festival. Harris, who has seen an unfinished version of the film, promises that it’s “as unsettling as the book”—though he doesn’t really get why he creeped people out in the trailer just by standing in a doorway. Regardless, Harris is very happy that he took the part, one that Fincher himself offered him over lunch.

Gone Girl will arrive in theaters October 3.

Sam Trammell talks 'The Fault in Our Stars,' the danger of mountain lions on the 'True Blood' set

The month of June should treat Sam Trammell well: The actor is in a little movie now in theaters — he plays Hazel’s father in The Fault in Our Stars — and will be back on our TVs come June 22, when the seventh and final season of HBO’s True Blood premieres.

He stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM Channel 105) to chat about both. In the first clip below, he talks about playing a parent for the first time on-screen and the first movie that made him weep. In the second, he confirms we’re in for a darker, scarier season of True Blood; that he’s still naked a lot; and that night shoots require a bit of bravery. READ FULL STORY

Shailene Woodley explains herself after 'feminism' kerfuffle -- listen here!

Shailene Woodley, star of the The Fault in Our Stars (opening this weekend), recently dropped by Entertainment Weekly Radio’s Women on Pop to talk about the highly anticipated adaptation of the John Green best-seller. EW’s Melissa Maerz and Sara Vilkomerson also asked Woodley if she wanted to further explain some of her recent quotes — including the now infamous interview with Time magazine, in which she was asked whether she considers herself a feminist and she said no. Woodley was happy to oblige, and to clarify what she meant: “For me the big thing in life is about sisterhood,” she says. “Bringing sisters together and supporting one another…What I found so funny and so sad about that article is that I talked about that the entire time. Nothing is going to change in this world until women start loving other women. I’m so lucky. I have the best sisters in my life. The best.”

Woodley went on to say that she thinks the article (and surrounding hoopla) was counterintuitive to what she was saying. “It pitted women against me,” she says. “The thing I was trying to say we need to eliminate — without the word ‘feminist,’ without any word attached to it — we need to begin to evolve the way we look at sisterhood. It’s the exact opposite of what [the article] ended up doing.”

Take a listen below to hear Woodley’s thoughts! READ FULL STORY

Patrick Stewart explains why he's so much fun now -- LISTEN!

It’s difficult to imagine if you’ve seen even one photo of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen exploring New York City, but according to Stewart, there was a time when he wasn’t the funnest guy around. During the SiriusXM Town Hall with the stars of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Stewart was asked what advice he’d give his younger self. There was no hesitation: “I would say, ‘Patrick, cheer the f— up!'” When Hugh Jackman insists Stewart is the happiest guy he knows, Stewart says he’s become that way with the help of his Star Trek: The Next Generation and X-Men co-stars.

“I was so miserable when I was a kid. I grew up too fast,” he says. “I could hear adults saying, ‘Oh, you could rely on Patrick. He’s very responsible.’ And really what they were saying [was] I was dull and boring. I had no fun. But I promise you, I am making up for it.”

Listen to the clip below. The SiriusXM Town Hall hosted by Jess Cagle repeats Memorial Day at 1 p.m. ET and 8 p.m. ET on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105). READ FULL STORY

James McAvoy reimagines the 'X-Men' franchise as 'Jack-Men' -- LISTEN

The next X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, has a release date (May 27, 2016), but as the stars confirmed when they sat down for a SiriusXM Town Hall, they haven’t officially heard that they’re in it. Patrick Stewart would like to think Charles Xavier will always play a part in the films since the X-Men were named after him — and W-Men, after Wolverine, doesn’t have quite the same ring. James McAvoy, however, suggests they could always do Jack-Men in honor of Hugh Jackman.

Jack-Men sounds like a different kind of movie, host Jess Cagle, editorial director of People and EW, jokes. “I make those movies all the time,” Jackman says, laughing. “I hope no one sees them.” McAvoy has a plot: “It would be a bunch of dudes, desperate people, who’d all been like shunned from society because they were intensely charismatic and buff. They were like, ‘We’ve got nowhere to go. We’re so charismatic!'”

Listen to the full exchange below.

In the second clip, Jackman is asked by an audience member who he’d like to see play a young Wolverine and gives Channing Tatum a thumbs up as Gambit. READ FULL STORY

Watch James McAvoy threaten to hand the Avengers their asses, punch Hugh Jackman -- VIDEO

Do the stars of  X-Men: Days of Future Past want to see a crossover with the Avengers? That’s one of the questions James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman field in their SiriusXM Town Hall hosted by Jess Cagle (premiering May 23 at 7 p.m. ET on EW Radio). Because you really need to see McAvoy’s answer to get the full effect, you’ll want to watch the sneak peek below.

He likens the situation to a boxing match — if the audience interest is there, someone’s going to make it happen. “I would like to see us fight them, though. I’d like us not to team up. I’d like to see us fight them and, you know, annihilate them, as we surely would,” he says, laughing. “Be like, ‘Hey, Robert Downey. Oh, here you go. There’s your ass.’ ‘Sorry, I’ve got a bunch of asses in my hand. I think they belong to you Avengers?'”

In the second clip, McAvoy steals the scene again by massaging Stewart and punching Jackman. Enjoy. READ FULL STORY

'Divergent' stars Theo James and Shailene Woodley talk pushups and injuries -- LISTEN!

Divergent stars Theo James and Shailene Woodley have had a lot of fun together on the promotional trail, but when they joined EW’s Sara Vilkomerson for an Entertainment Weekly Radio special, James learned there was one thing he did during prep for the film that annoyed her (for, okay, just a day). In the clip below, the duo also talks about filming some of their big stunts in the movie, which is in theaters now, and the injuries Woodley sustained.

UPDATE: In the video below, James and Woodley also reveal which faction they’d choose.

Tune in to EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) on March 21 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to hear the full Divergent special.

'The World's End': Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on the martial art they call 'pub fu'

The World’s End, the third collaboration for Simon Pegg and Nick Frost with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director/co-writer Edgar Wright, hits theaters today. Which means you should start seeing fans reenact a lengthy fight that breaks out during their characters’ nostalgic 12-pub crawl right… about… now.

Earlier this week, Pegg and Frost visited EW’s Sirius XM channel and talked about creating the martial art they call “pub fu” with stunt coordinator and choreographer Brad Allan. “It’s like a half-remembered martial art form. I used to watch wrestling, and I can swing my arms really quickly,” Pegg said. “But we also wanted it to look like the more drunk they got the more proficient they became fighting…. so that the brawls become more and more elaborate.”

Listen to more of the interview with EW’s Darren Franich, Clark Collis, and Keith Staskiewicz below. READ FULL STORY
