Artist Prasad Bhat made this fantastic art series, The Evolution, that tracks the career of famous actors and the iconic roles they’ve played in different movies. It’s great because the expression of each actor never changes (and the expressions are so, so on point), even through all the characters’ costumes and wigs…
Who do you think of as Superman? Christopher Reeves. Iron Man? Robert Downey Jr. Wolverine? Hugh Jackman. Some comic book superheroes will always be associated with one actor. But others?

Here's an enjoyable animation bit from ADHD: they hilariously imagine different famous actors as Batman. All the impressions are great. You'll see Matthew McConaughey putting on his True Detective mask, Kevin Spacey doing his Frank Underwood shtick, Mark Wahlberg's everyman persona, Aaron Paul screaming bitch and more.

Apparently, Hollywood just made the kooky decision to cast Ashton "One Third of Two and a Half Men or Just 5/6th of One Man" Kutcher as the lead in an upcoming Steve Jobs biopic. Yes, there is some resemblance between Ashton and young Steve Jobs. Yes, Ashton is a famous guy. But people, he's... Ashton Kutcher.
The Academy Awards: that wonderful yearly event when we collectively celebrate the accomplishments of talented, beautiful people. They're nothing like you, and they'd never be caught hanging with you, but that doesn't mean you can't get yourself into their crew.
Legendary comedienne Lucille Ball would've turned 100 today. May she rest in peace. Google's even got a fresh new doodle in her honor, with the video up top featured within. But Lucy did more than just play a TV housewife.
I loathe following celebrities on Twitter, but I make an exception with British actor Simon Pegg. He's classy, funny and knows how to use Twitter correctly—something you only have to look at Courtney Love's Twitter feed to appreciate. Pegg wrote for the New Statesman that he grabbed his Twitter handle early to avoid…
Tablet Magazine recently published a revealing report exposing the "real people" that call into radio shows. According to Tablet, those real people aren't real at all. Instead, they're paid actors. Hired guns. Fake. I knew those amazing stories that spur great conversation and make for awesome programming was too good…
