To all of our lovelies who spend way too much time trying to read into every single episode of "Mad Men," this should help you out: 7 Fascinating Theories On This Week's Episode, "Crash." (Uproxx)

Bai Ling! Bai Ling! Bai Ling! She's back! (GoFugYourself)

It's not like Salon to take something incredibly benign and blow it up, but that's exactly what they did in turning a quote that Brad Pitt made into a slam against Jennifer Aniston. Celebitchy calls them on it. (Celebitchy)

Morgan Freeman took a nap during a junket interview, because he's Morgan Freeman, and THAT'S HIS GODDAMN RIGHT. (Grantland)

If you fell on the other side of Joanna's 25 Spoillerific reasons why she loved STID, here's a counterpoint: 16 of the Most Irritating Plot Points from Star Trek Into the Darkness. (Unreality)

Cable programing like "Mad Men" is grabbing more viewers, but the same can't be said for network programming. Thankfully, reality programming is finally dying, but check out this depressing infographic on the drops all your favorite shows had year to year. (Vulture)

Linklater wants to make a sorta-sequel to Dazed and Confused this fall. Whaaa? (Slashfilm)

Looks like there's no escaping Arrested Development this week, as a well-timed reference even made it into last night's season finale of "Modern Family." (WG)

Over on The Mary Sue, they talk to Saoirse Ronan about Joss Whedon. Joss Whedon. Joss Whedon. (The MarySue)

ewan_mcgregor.jpgThe image on the right is of a celebrity most of you love, but he is ABSOLUTELY unrecognizable. No way you could tell who that is without clicking first. I know who it is, and I still don't believe it. (Videogum)

Matt Damon's super gay Behind the Candelabra premieres this Sunday. Read Caspar's review, and then head over here to play the drinking game. (Buzzfeed)

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • Rebecca Little

    I was absolutely POSITIVE that was Bryan Cranston :/

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Bai Ling never went away. Like Herpes.

  • e jerry powell

    We need to roll out massive doses of Ba-Ltrex, I guess.

  • e jerry powell

    Ewan McGregor with a pornstache. (It's been all over the gay blogs all day today).

  • Bojangles

    "It’s not like Salon to take something incredibly benign and blow it up."

    ...you mean like you gals did with the Timberlake quote?

  • YetAnotherGuest

    I actually find it's often like Salon to take something benign and blow it up...

  • Batesian

    Morgie was probably just tired from his softball game with Romina.

  • Guest

    Ewan McGregor beloved? I don't know anyone who would go that far.

  • e jerry powell

    Okay, belusted, then.

  • Strtwise

    Oh I dunno. Could it be "ewan-mecgregor-thumb-550x407-69806.jpg" by any chance?

  • e jerry powell

    And you know that on any other day someone would have caught that before it got posted.

  • Obst N. Gemuse

    That's a sweet Moto Guzzi he's riding. Can't place the year model -- could be a rat bike mix of parts.

  • muertemaria

    I love the fact that the top show with the most increase is Supernatural. That is awesome because I still think this show is great and it is one of the only shows I watch the day it comes on.

  • e jerry powell

    But how bad were its ratings before that the show had that much room for growth?

  • carrie

    Ewan McGregor acting Justin theroux for his next movie Jane Got A Gun

  • mairimba

    I thought the guy was Justin Theroux.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    totally.

  • DataAngel

    Dear Ewan: Love the dark hair. Hate the soulpatch.
    (the moustache is just hysterical)

  • UPPERCASE_RYAN

    I picked Ewan McGregor by just looking. It was pretty noticeable

  • lowercase_ryan
  • Sherry

    I could tell from the trademark hair and motorcycle. Does that mean I win him? Because I am all up in that, baby.

  • e jerry powell

    As long as you don't mind sharing, because he's already spoken for about 100,000,000 times over.

  • $27019454

    Totally with the half-cocked rooster hair thing and the motorcycle. Also, his hotness comes off him in WAAAVES.

  • AudioSuede

    That beautiful man. He is still my favorite.

  • $27019454

    THat whole Brad Pitt versus Jennifer Whatsit is embarrassing. WHO are the people who can't let that die? And that was an incredibly vanilla quote to begin with. Jeezy Creezy I wish they would all just take a hit, put down the torch and pitchfork, and chill.

  • competitivenonfiction

    I wonder if any of them would be even marginally interesting without this narrative.

  • e jerry powell

    I'd say if Brad Pitt was still sparking...

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I vote DDL!

    It...is definitely not DDL.

  • Juxyn

    It could still be DDL.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    DDL is *so good* that he's convinced y'all he's Ewan Macgregor.

  • e jerry powell

    There's certainly a fool-proof way of knowing for certain, but it involves watching The Pillow Book, Velvet Goldmine and Trainspotting very closely.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Do I also need to watch The Unbearable Lightness of Being for comparison?

  • e jerry powell

    That would be the one, yes...

    Nick Miller

  • I was torn between him and Mark Ruffalo.

    I was wrong, of course, but now I want to see Ruffalo with a biker 'stache.

  • lowercase_ryan

    or not. wow

  • JoannaRobinson

    Man alive, I thought it was Ty Burrell.

  • lowercase_ryan

    your guess was better than mine.
