You know what the greatest thing about Idris Elba is? Feel free to all shout out ‘everything!’ in unison, but it’s actually that he doesn’t take himself too seriously and he doesn’t mind talking about his junk.

I think if the entire internet saw a photo of me in which it looked like my penis was enormous, I’d respond pretty much like Jon Hamm did, by being like ‘SHUT UP ABOUT MY DICK ALREADY.’ Although if it were me, I might take a few more precautions on set in the future like, oh, I don’t know, wearing another layer of underoos so that thing isn’t moving freely about the cabin, ready to silhouette itself against my pant leg the moment a photographer’s flash goes off.

But we are not all Jon Hamms. Some of us are Idris Elbas, in that when a photo like that comes out we respond to it in a much more jovial manner, that also allows us to keep talking about one of the most coveted undercarriages on the Planet Earth.

Idris already dashed our hopes once by revealing on Twitter that he’s not the anaconda we took him for, a tweet which you can see below nah im not doing extra work

But even after that hilariously self-aware response, Idris still had zero problem with Jimmy Kimmel bringing it up yet again when he was on the show the other night. He sticks with his story about the phallic phantom being a mic wire, which is disappointing, but with the amount of giggling and stuttering involved, you’ll forgive me if I‘m not won’t allow myself to be entirely convinced.

The Iron Bank is going to keep a close eye on its investment in Westeros.

Mark Gatiss is set to reprise his role as Tycho Nestoris, the world’s most fearsome banking executive, in the fifth season of HBO’s fantasy hit. The Sherlock co-creator, writer, producer and actor is expected back on the Thrones set in Croatia next week.

Gatiss made this Thrones debut last season in the episode “The Laws of Gods and Men” where his Braavosi bank team agreed to fund Stannis Baratheon‘s war effort to capture the Iron Throne from Lannister control (the Lannisters are in heavy debt to the Iron Bank, which will stealthily fund a debtor’s enemies if they are not repaid in a timely manner).

Also: Speaking of Thrones production in Croatia, earlier this week there were reports that a key outdoor scene from George R.R. Martin’s A Dance with Dragons focusing on Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister was running into production difficulties due to a conflict with a Dubrovnik church (I don’t recommend searching for this spoiler-filled news unless you have already read the book). At the HBO Emmy party Monday night, producers told me that the snag was “old news” and that a new location for the sequence has long been secured.

There's no shortage of Full House fans eager to see the rumored sitcom revival make it to television.

The entirety of the cast, however, may be another story.

"Not everybody would want to do it. Maybe two-thirds of the cast would want to," Bob Saget, who played Danny Tanner on the 1987-1995 series, told PEOPLE in April while promoting his memoir, Dirty Daddy.

"John [Stamos] is such a good guy, and I think he would want it to happen in some way if it could. There's some stuff going on, I don't get involved in it, where people were trying to put some energy into it … [But] I don't think it will happen in a way that it would be everybody. "

It’s been 20 years since Friends first hit the airwaves, and TV has yet to produce as iconic a coffee shop as the one where Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and—Joey, I think?—spent most of their days.

Now, fans can get a chance to feel like one of the gang, so long as they travel to New York City this autumn. Warner Bros. Television Group, Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and Eight O’Clock Coffee are partnering to re-create the Central Perk coffeehouse at a pop-up location in downtown Manhattan this September, and there are plenty of reasons to check it out besides the free coffee.

Visitors to the decorated storefront will be able to take photos on the actual orange couch from the show, along with a myriad of signature props and a show-themed backdrop. Weekly performances will add some occasional musical flair—yes, they will play “Smelly Cat,” along with other tunes in the same vein as Phoebe’s improvised songs—along with special select appearances by James Michael Tyler, who played barista Gunther (whose hair is “brighter than the sun,” according to Rachel and basically anyone).

Fans can also expect daily giveaways, trivia contestants, and other various contests and merchandise behind the Central Perk counter throughout the month. Also, in conjunction with Friends’ anniversary, Eight O’Clock Coffee’s special Central Perk-themed blend will be available in stores across the country.

The pop-up Central Perk coffee bar will appear at 199 Lafayette Street in downtown Manhattan, opening Wednesday, Sept. 17 and closing Saturday, Oct. 18. The shop is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Are they or aren’t they? Beyonce and Jay Z seemed to put a summer of divorce rumors to rest on Sunday night with a family appearance with Blue Ivy at the MTV VMAs. Now, RadarOnline.com has learned, her father Mathew Knowles has spoken out with new claims that the whole scandal was a “Jedi mind trick” orchestrated to “ignite” ticket sales for the couple’s On The Run Tour!

Knowles made the explosive claims on the Roula & Ryan show on 104.1 KRBE in Houston earlier this week. Asked about the infamous elevator incident earlier this year, and continuing divorce rumors, Knowles — Beyonce’s former manager — was unequivocal about his opinion.

“I know, because we’ve done this. From experience, there’s a tour going on,” he said. “So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot.” Incredulous, one of the hosts asked if it were truly possible that Beyonce, Jay Z, and Solange Knowles staged and leaked the tape of themselves arguing in an elevator at an after-party for the Met Ball in New York earlier this year.

He said, “All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200%!”

Knowles claims that despite the fact he has not managed Beyonce’s career for years, “We still talk every Sunday. She’s still the humble, generous person that she’s always been.”

Kathy Bates as the Bearded Lady. Michael Chiklis as the strong man. A two-headed Sarah Paulson. Sword eaters and oh so much more.

Ryan Murphy Talks Autobiographical Elements in Projects, How 'The Normal Heart' Ended Up on HBO, Emmy Nominations (Q&A)
That's just a hint of what's to come, judging from The Hollywood Reporter's exclusive cast art for American Horror Story: Freak Show (below). This is the first look at what co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have in store for the upcoming fourth season of the FX anthology series.

Season four of the FX anthology starts in Florida, circa 1952, and centers on a "troupe of curiosities" that arrives at the same time a dark entity emerges that that threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amid the dying world of the American carny experience."

Jessica Lange stars as Elsa Mars, a German expat managing one of the last remaining freak shows in the country. Emma Roberts is set as Maggie; Paulson is Bette and Dot Tattler; Bates is Effil Darling; Chiklis is Wendell Del Toredo; Angela Bassett is Desiere Dupree; and Evan Peters is Jimmy Darling. Frances Conroy and Gabourey Sidibe will also return to the cast, which includes newcomers Wes Bentley, Fargo's John Carroll Lynch as the central villain and The Normal Heart's Finn Wittrock as well as the world's smallest living woman, Jyoti Amge. Patti LaBelle will also appear in a four-episode arc, with Matt Bomer set for a guest stint.
"At every freak show, you have the tropes but there's some [that are] unique and weird," Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter about season four. "It's about something: It's about outcasts and how society at that time … true stories about circus performers who were cast aside. The story in many ways dovetails with Asylum, because they leave one era and you can see many of them in real life were put into Asylums. There's a great symmetry we've come up with that's rewarding."

Judging from the official Freak Show hashtag, the series will explore the "freak" in all of us as the German #WirSindAlleFreaks translates to "we are all freaks."
"It's darker than Coven; it feels very unique," Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter of Freak Show. "I directed the first one and I haven't done that since the very first one of season one. It feels like a Douglas Sirk movie, it's very 1952 presentational and then the horror is an unexpected jab. As opposed to last year, which was crazy camera work and comedy. This year feels different. The special ability cast that we have is amazing and I feel so thrilled because so many of them, it was their dream to be actors and they didn't have any opportunities. There's a great community. They feel part of something perhaps for the first time in their life and that's an amazing thing that I was really emotional about when I was directing them."
Check out the cast art, below, and hit the comments with your thoughts. Freak Show premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. on FX.

Glee's sixth and final season premise has been revealed.

According to Fox, the truncated season will again revolve around Lea Michele's Rachel Berry, who returns to Ohio after a "humiliating failure" as a TV actress. The former New Directions star will return home to Lima to figure out what she wants to do next and, after discovering that Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) has disbanded the glee club, takes it upon her self to reinstate — and lead! — the group that helped launch her career.

Meanwhile, Blaine (Darren Criss), Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Will (Matthew Morrison) have all found new and surprising gigs in Ohio. Fox notes that other McKinley High alums will also return for Glee's final run.

Michele, Criss, Overstreet, Lynch and Morrison will all return as series regulars and be joined by Chris Colfer (Kurt), Dot-Marie Jones (Coach Beiste), Kevin McHale (Artie) and Amber Riley (Mercedes). Naya Rivera will return with a reduced role. Max Adler has also booked a major recurring role in the final season, reprising his role as Dave Karofsky.

Co-creator Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter at the Emmys on Monday that he doesn't currently know what the final scene of the series will be. "I did. I don't anymore, but I think it will be emotional," he said.
Murphy told reporters in April that the final season would feature a time jump and focus more on the original cast members, shifting the focus from its previous relocated home in New York.

"The final season is really its own story and its own location, and while the New York stuff will be alive, the final season is not New York-centric at all," Murphy said. "It really [will be] a lovely, fitting season that … dwells on the original people that were on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. That really is the last season. .… We'll revisit some of the new kids that came and went. There's a return of the Jane-Matt characters in a big way. It's really interesting, a very sweet, satisfying ending to the story."

Murphy's original vision for the end of the series featured Rachel and Cory Monteith's Finn Hudson's "star-crossed lovers getting together and having a happy ending and them both getting their dreams." "The fact that that can't be is a big pain in all of our hearts," he said.

Glee's final season returns midseason on Fox. An exact premiere date has not yet been determined.

Legendary director Ridley Scott gives an insight into his newest film, 'Exodus: Gods and Kings,' starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton.


Q: There are a lot of stories vying for your attention. Why this one?
A: This story just lit a match for me. I thought, 'Wow, this is an incredible, big story,' which is actually the threshold, really, of the beginning of the rulebook of civilisation. If you regard the Ten Commandments as such then it comes out of that. I admit I had never really paid much attention to divinity school, or religious instruction as we called it at my secondary modern school. And I wasn’t really in depth at all about Moses. I was staggered to discover what kind of man he was and where he’d come from. I had no idea he was the counter-point to Ramses. I didn’t know how close their relationship was and that they were raised like half brothers, half cousins if you like.

Q: How was the experience of making Exodus?
A: I’m telling you, it went way beyond my expectations. I think the fundamental structure of the story is so rich with emotional context, the challenges and the doubt that Moses faces, it’s incredible. And Moses continues to have doubts about himself and what he senses, and what he doesn’t sense, what to believe or not believe. It’s a real emotional ride. I’d never worked with Christian [Bale] before, and he delivered way beyond my expectations. He was fantastic.

Q: So what appealed to you about the story this time round?
A: The epic nature of the story and the insecurity of the central character, Moses, and the massive context of this incredible time 5000 years ago. You don’t really want to get into religion politics, but you’re treading the threshold of religion. The magnitude of Moses’s story, and what he believed, was very compelling. If you place yourself at that particular time – and it was savage times – to believe in one being or higher order, when the Egyptians had a thousand Gods, is incredible.


Q: You said you cast Exodus very ‘carefully.’ Could you expand on that?
A: I guess being a director, in some ways, is like being the captain of a sports team, like a soccer team, and you have to make sure that you have every position covered really well because that will help you to win the game. So I always look on making a film as a partnership and that’s what casting is all about, whether it’s the star or the guy with one line. And by doing that you enable them to feel confident to try things out and feel free to suggest things. And over the years I’ve got the best results from actors who really are my partners in the process and it makes it all the more enjoyable. In this instance I’d met Christian four or five years ago when we had a cup of tea together and a rich tea biscuit in LA and he said ‘what are we going to do together?’ And I said ‘well, I’ll come up with something..’ and it wasn’t until five years later when I was thinking about the idea of Exodus and Moses being this kind of larger than life character who, at the same time, has to be played definitively as a very real person, that I thought of Christian and I knew he was the right actor for the role. It’s not a fantasy. Ramses certainly wasn’t a fantasy and somewhere Moses is very much written down and indicated and believed. So it’s a real thing.


Q: What was in your mind when you set about creating this international cast?
A: Egypt was – as it is now – a confluence of cultures, as a result of being a crossroads geographically between Africa, the Middle East and Europe. We cast major actors from different ethnicities to reflect this diversity of culture, from Iranians to Spaniards to Arabs. There are many different theories about the ethnicity of the Egyptian people, and we had a lot of discussions about how to best represent the culture.


Q: Which of Christian’s performances had stuck in your mind?
A: I’ve watched Christian down the years and he’s always been interesting and a very good actor. I liked him in 3:10 to Yuma – I thought that was really interesting. And I loved him in The Fighter opposite Mark Wahlberg. I thought that was amazing. I cast him because I thought he would be the definition of Moses – he has the physicality and the sensitivity that you need for the role. His research is meticulous. By the time we started filming he knew more about Moses than anybody on set. I’d compare him to Russell (Crowe) in that way. His work ethic is fantastic and he does his research and then some. And he’s full of ideas. We’d talk and I’d say, ‘that’s a great idea, I’d never thought of that..’ And you know, he’s a lot of fun, too. Christian is a true partner. He communicates his ideas really well and it’s all about, ‘what are we going to do with this scene? Should we try this?’ With Christian everything is about in depth conversations and that’s an interesting way to work.


Q: So with Christian in place you had to think about an actor who would play Ramses because those two characters are at the heart of your film – they grow up as brothers, they love each other but in the end they will be on opposing sides. So why Joel Edgerton?
A: Joel had read for me for Kingdom of Heaven and I really liked him. He sent me a tape at the time, out of the blue, and I watched it and I was like ‘who is this?’ And later I saw him in Animal Kingdom, which is a great film, and he was brilliant. I was knocked out by what he did on Exodus. He is a very real actor and I mean this in the best sense of the word, but he has a great theatrical intuition. He’s a great character actor and now, I think, he is a leading man. Christian and Joel together are very, very powerful.


Q: Are you concerned about how religious communities will receive the film?
A: I try to be as respectful and honest as possible, because my job is to put myself in the position of that man, as near as I can do it, and tell his story. I do that in partnership with an actor – in this case a wonderful actor, Christian Bale – and we want to honour the story and the man. I spent a lot of time casting this film and we cast it very carefully. And as I said, I think our actors have done a wonderful job.

Q: At the heart of the story is the relationship between Moses and Ramses. It’s a very human story of two men raised as brothers who end up on opposite sides. Was that part of the appeal, too.
A: Absolutely. Moses is Ramses’ brother in all but blood. They were very fond of each other and they were raised as brothers, but Ramses would always be first place, and Moses would never be in that position, but there was no competition. Moses didn’t want it – I think he was perfectly happy to be number two. Number two is a much easier position to be in. You have a better time (laughs).


Q: What was the balance between real sets and CGI?
A: The CGI is massive. It’s 1300 effects shots. Is that a lot today? I think it’s average for a big movie, about average. We dovetailed the CGI with the live action very well. Arthur Max (production designer) and I were forever having discussions about how we would balance the two.

Q: But you could have done more with CGI and yet you build those fantastic sets. Why is that important to you?
A: We build sets and go on location because I want the reality of a fully envisioned environment. That’s good for me, shooting it, and for the actors who are performing in that environment. And when you have someone like Arthur you are getting the very best. And if you get the right artists – and we have them – then you completely pre-vis (pre-visualise) your sets before you start. All of Egypt was completely pre-vised in a form that looks like a photograph; they are all digital prints and it’s incredible so I can work out if some of the buildings are too tall or if I want more density and in a matter of days it can be done and then you build off of that. You cost it and you build it and it saves so much money. For instance, from the moment I stood on the ground in Almeria where we built our set for Pi-Ramses – which I think was 204 acres, maybe a bit more – I had the pre-vis and I knew what had to be built. And the crew did an amazing job. The bulldozers moved in, the team got to work, and we got it done on time. It’s insane.


Q: Arthur Max said it’s the biggest challenge you’ve done. Would you agree?
A: Yes, I would. We’ve both stood there in the twilight, looking at each other, going, ‘Everything alright?’ and Arthur said, ‘Yeah.’ This is the biggest. When you see it, you’ll see how it grew, as well. It was a huge challenge and the production team and the crew met that challenge. And you’ll see it all on screen. I shot it in 3D and I cut it in 3D and it’s majestic. The people from the studio came in to see an early cut and they were blown away – more than I expected – so then I went straight into cutting and refining the final mix.

Q: You’ve made so many big films now. Sum up what it was like to make Exodus?
A: This one was more rewarding than most. I don’t know what it was but we just seemed to land in all the right places and I really enjoyed myself. I found that the people I had working with me – the crew and also the actors – were really willing to give everything for this film. So yes, I really enjoyed it.

'Exodus: Gods and Kings' will open in Australian cinemas on December 11.

An orange-haired Kristen Stewart covers Vanity Fair France, and in the new interview, the 24-year-old Twilight star gets candid about her acting philosophies. According to Kristen, her performance all hedges on if she's "vibing" with her co-star or not.

"I'm not the type of actor who can perform without wearing a mirror on my face. Everyone knows that you're better with other actors who are really present, who you are having the same experience with, but I am made or broken on it," she explains. "If I'm working with someone who I'm not vibing with, or who I have to fake anything with, then it's sad for me and it's bad acting."

And though she of course doesn't name names, she does reveal that she's definitely been in this type of "uncomfortable" situation before.
"I haven't been totally screwed, but I've had to force things. I've had to be in front of people and be like, 'Oh, thank God we only have a few scenes together,'" she says. "I never know until a few days, or a few scenes, in. At first you think maybe we just haven't fallen into our rhythm. But as soon as you are exhausted by trying to find it, you give up and just sort of fall into default mode -- it's just sh*tty. It's just not fun. And it's not as good. When I look at those scenes I go, ‘ugh.’ I don't like watching them." MORE after the cut Stewart also addresses the two-year break she took after the blockbuster success of The Twilight Saga and Snow White and the Huntsman.

"Seriously, I think that after Twilight and after Snow White and the Huntsman, which were such huge movies, that I felt I didn't want to search for the next 'big, successful' thing," she explains. "One thing that people do with two enormous movies is think that that's their thing now, to do big movies, and ride that wave. I got off this huge wave and said, 'I'm going to go in for a bit.' I'm going to come back out later. That was good. I needed some time off ... I needed to like, live in my house and be surrounded by my own sh*t and play guitar and write."

The notoriously press-shy actress surprisingly admits to some vulnerabilities growing up in the lengthy new interview, though now she says she could care less about how she's publicly perceived.

"I was kind of a cocky kid, and so when you go to school and you're not fully accepted as this girl who was supposed to look like a girl, it affected me. I would get called a man—and all this stuff. There was a very, very brief time when it bothered me. Then it ended because when I started working," she explains. "I never tried to shape people's perspectives of me, which is something that a lot of people do. There are certain actors and artists who want to be a certain kind of actor or certain kind of artist, and I'm really not like that."

"I try not to let it mess with me, because my true personal life, as much as people think they know about it, they don't know d*ck sh*t. Who could?" she adds. "By the way nobody knows. Nobody knows what the f*ck is going on. You're going to die. You're going to lay next to the people that you know the most in life, the people that you're going to grow old with. But you're going to lay next to them in the middle of the night deeply curious about them and who they are, because nobody f*cking knows anything."

Did Miley Cyrus call Ed Sheeran an "a--hole" at the MTV VMas? Better yet, does it even matter? The 21-year-old pop star has yet to comment on her alleged dis, while Sheeran shared his side of the story during a KIIS-FM radio interview with Ryan Seacrest Wednesday. The singer-songwriter had previously called her twerking "a stripper move," fueling the feud rumors.

"Well, I don't know why people were expecting [a high-five]. I've never met her," Sheeran, 23, said ahead of his performance at the Staples Center in L.A. "There was a high-five between me and [Scooter Braun] because I know him, and that was the only high-five. I don't know what people we're expecting."

"I think she's a fantastic artist," he said. "She's got a great voice and writes great songs."

Even after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer for the second time, Diem Brown never let go of her desire to experience pregnancy and childbirth. But despite going to extraordinary lengths to freeze her eggs two years ago, that dream slipped away on Aug. 17, when the MTV reality star, 32, underwent an emergency hysterectomy after learning her cancer had returned for the third time.

"When I came to, they told me that they couldn't save my uterus," she tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. "That was a blow. We'd fought so hard to keep it. Might sound silly to most, but it's what made me still feel like a woman and gave me hope for a future. I felt empty ... gutted."

In addition to a tumor blocking her colon, doctors found cancer in her stomach lining, and Brown now has a colostomy bag. A second surgery followed three days later due to complications from the first. "I was completely defeated, honestly," says the recurring Real World/Road Rules Challenge contestant, who candidly chronicled her 2012 cancer journey in a blog for PEOPLE.com.

But when her medical team explained how "touch and go" her second surgery had been, "it put things into perspective," she says. "I might not have the ability to ever carry a child and I have this damn bag for the time being – but I'm alive."

There’s a rumor going around that Warner Bros. doesn’t want you laughing when you watch Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice in March 2016, or any of their DC Comics movies for that matter.

According to HitFix’s Drew McWeeney, and a few other writers around the web, the studio implemented a rule that's to set the tone for all of their superhero movies: “No Jokes.”

In an in-depth (and very enlightening) article, McWeeney suggests that Warner Bros. wants Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and so on to be taken super seriously. While no one linked to the productions have admitted any of this, anyone who's seen Man of Steel can surely say that it's not much of a comedy. And this isn't exactly Warner Bros. fault because as McWeeney writes, "DC treats their superhero characters more like gods," whereas Marvel, the opposition, has characters that are more human-like and flawed.

This "No Jokes" policy might also be a response to the highly-comedic tone in Marvel's movies. But is Warner Bros. harming itself for taking itself too seriously? Personally, I was just about ready to give up on superhero films, but decided to give Guardians of the Galaxy a chance–I'm human damn it–and I am so glad I did because it was oozing with comedy. And not only that, but it had everything: action, heartfelt moments, total absurdity, and some seriousness as well.


Do you prefer serious or light-hearted superhero movies?

Disney's 'Feast' feeds on food-loving dog Winston

"Every relationship has something that starts it off, and in this case it's food," Osborne says. "I wanted to tell a life story of a man and the dog under the table through the meals they share. It becomes this story of love between a dog and owner."

The years fly by in the six-minute film, and the food changes as the two mature and a woman enters James' life. At first this is a setback for Winston as nachos and spaghetti give way to Brussels sprouts and hummus. But, ultimately, Winston tries to rescue the faltering human relationship, despite the seemingly dismal food prospects.

"At that moment, Winston rises above himself and becomes much more than a dog," Osborne says. "He steps outs of his instincts and makes a sacrifice."
Osborne, 33, was one of the leaders on Big Hero 6 when he entered a new Disney in-house program where employees are invited to submit their short-film ideas. He found himself pitching concepts to fellow dog lover John Lasseter, chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios. Feast was approved, and Osborne has worked for a year with his own team to complete the project.

Although he grew up in Cincinnati with dachshunds, Osborne went with a terrier in his film. "There's something about that expressive face. To be able to work with that is pretty cool," he says.

The team even brought in three terriers for a day of inspection. They monitored how the dogs act and, crucially, how they eat. Food stylists were consulted about displaying the "iconic" food dishes. "You have to know what it is that makes food look good on screen," Osborne says.

The reviews for Feast after its world premiere in August during France's Annecy International Animated Film Festival suggest pet lovers will devour the work. Movie industry website Variety declared that the festival crowd went wild for Winston.

"It was just this incredible feeling of just 'Wow, what a surprise,' " says producer Kristina Reed. "It's like we made something special here."

Osborne, who married his girlfriend during the film's production (no canine intervention required), looks forward to sharing the pooch with the rest of the world.

"It's like Winston was always there," Osborne says. "It's not like we made him, he just always existed. And now we're just showing him to other people."
