Esquire's got a new interview and photo shoot with Alison Brie, fulfilling their quarterly Brie quota and staving off bankruptcy for another season. It turns out that Alison Brie is willing to take a brave stand in favor of things like The Princess Bride and popcorn, but what does it even matter there are pictures and there's a zero percent chance you're even reading this, and who could blame you?

Word behind the scenes on Fox's "The Following" is that Kevin Bacon thinks the show's dumb and misogynistic. Welcome to primetime network TV, Kev. Mandy Patinkin pretty much said the same thing about his time on "Criminal Minds." (Celebitchy)

This list of heartbreaking TV character deaths will remind you that you care about pretend people more than some members of your actual family, and that's OK. (Unreality)

Here's a new trailer for Deceptive Practices: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay. It's a documentary about sleight-of-hand master Ricky Jay, whom you probably recognize from supporting roles in David Mamet and P.T. Anderson movies. There are clips of his performances on YouTube, too, but fair warning: once you watch one, you will probably spend hours watching the rest.

In video game news: here's the trailer for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, a spinoff of the Far Cry series that mashes up every idea from cheeseball 1980s action movies and spits them out into a first-person action game. This thing looks so bonkers that I can't wait to play it. Also, consider this your regular reminder to join the Pajiba Gamers group on Facebook if you're into that sort of thing. We promise not to haze the new people (too much). (YouTube)

Coaches: Stop being dicks. (Deadspin)

Seriously, coaches: Be like this guy. (Sports on Earth)

Somehow, finding out that former "The Real World" cast member Mike, aka The Miz, was in a straight-to-DVD second-sequel spinoff of John Cena's The Marine is totally unsurprising. (IMDb)

I know it's from The Onion, but I'm pretty sure this Aaron Sorkin piece is a true story. (The Onion)

Jonathan Winters died on Friday. In the words of Bob Newhart, "He was number one. There is no number two."

Explore the galaxy. Feel small. (Google Chrome)

These guys like Jurassic Park way more than you do. (imgur)

I had no idea that certain "SNL" reruns use sketch versions from the dress rehearsal, not the actual episode. (Splitsider)

"Straight up, what is wrong with being an object? Like a robot? Like Optimus Prime? What, you think you're better than Optimus Prime?" This is amazing. (Something Awful)

I want these Bluth albums to be real so bad. (Colossus of Clout)
