After controversy erupted over the lack of black female cast members on Saturday Night Live, Lorne Michaels has apparently set out to correct wrong that with secret auditions. (Gothamist)

Megyn Kelly over at Fox News wants the children of America to understand — I mean, really, really understand — that Santa Claus and Jesus are white. This, according to her, is not up for debate, and the thought shouldn’t even be suggested, because you wouldn’t want any black children to get the wrong idea, OK? (DListed)

Seth Meyers gave an interview to the Dan Patrick show, which I have edited down for your reading pleasure, and answered all the best SNL questions, like: Who was the best audition ever? Who failed at an audition but went on to be famous? Best guest host, worst guest host, etc. (Uproxx)

How did Benedict Cumberbatch research his role as the dragon in The Hobbit: The Second One? He studied lizards, of course. (Vulture)

“The nice people at InStyle called me “Britney!” and I am pretty sure that’s because they know I like to sign my Letters of Truth, which makes me feel like someone understands me finally. Love, Britney Spears.” I love it when the Fug Girls channel Britney. (GFY)

Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy is not the only one taking over newscast for stunt-promoting Anchorman 2; Steve Carell interrupted a weather forecast over in Britain to offer the meteorologist some not-so-helpful tips. (The Guardian)

The lovely Cameron Diaz posted a make-up free picture of herself in order to promote her new self-help book, and I’m just going to be kind and say, she looks her age. Is that mean? That’s kind of mean, isn’t it? (Celebitchy)

Our boy Howie Decker takes another stab at overly analyzing the rape-y lyrics of “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” That song, man. That song. (Underscoopfire)

I don’t really care about Family Guy, but this live-action rendition of its intro is goddamn delightful. (Unreality)


Jason Segel is going to play David Foster Wallace in a movie and .. I don’t know about this, guys. It makes me feel a little uncomfortable for anyone to play David Foster Wallace. I also feel like it’s a cursed role. (Slashfilm)

All around terrific guy Matt Patches runs down nine other wonderfully bizarre Hobbit adaptations, and some of these Hobbits are not nearly as cuddly as Martin Freeman. In fact, one is downright swallow-your-soul terrifying. (FSR)

How does the “Friends” holiday episode, “The One with the Holiday Armadillo” hold up today? VERY WELL THANK YOU. (OMG)
