Well, if you’re going to self-parody yourself, you may as well get attractive comedic actors to do the heavy lifting, as Mumford and Sons do here in hiring Jason Bateman, Ed Helms, Jason Sudeikis, and Will Forte to basically parody every earnest Mumfordian music video trope in existence (and by “attractive comedic actors,” I mean, relative to Mumford & Sons). Nice job, guys. You have neutralized the mockery. We can continue loving you with the full knowledge that you are in on the joke.

This is sublime brilliance squared. It also looks like it was a goddamn blast to make.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
