How Transporter Star Ed Skrein Got His Body

"I was a competitive swimmer for the Camden Swiss Cottage Swimming Club in North London from a very young age till about 15. In 2009, I really got back into it with two friends. We did a relay swim from England to France across the English Channel. For that, we actually had to get fat, which was wonderful. We would train like animals, but then we'd come out of the water and eat ice cream and drink beer, because you have to have a certain level of body fat to swim in water that cold. see more

Talking Points: Google's New Logo, Kermit's Mistress, and McDonald's Breakfast Plan

Here's what you need to know if, like us, you're going to have to be tolerably social this evening. On Tuesday, Google unveiled a new logo that uses a sans serif font. It's the biggest visual change the company has made in a while, but the shift is both aesthetic and functional. The new look is supposed to be easier to view on the smaller screens of mobile devices.

Design Geeks Rejoice: NASA's Long-Lost Standards Manual Is Finally Being Reissued

Google's new sans-serif logo might be its biggest change in 16 years, but get your graphics perfect in the first place and they can be just as exciting four decades later. Case in point: The NASA Graphics Standards Manual. The now-archival record was designed in 1974 by Danne & Blackburn to rekindle waning interest in space travel and breathe fresh life into NASA's old-fashion graphics and communications. Sadly, it was almost too ahead of its time, and was revoked by NASA in 1992 when the clunky, dated "Meatball" logo was reinstated. Even after the manual was lost, the futuristic see more

Writer Apologizes for Calling Idris Elba "Too Street" to Play James Bond

Anthony Horowitz is deeply, deeply sorry for that passively racist thing he said about Idris Elba this weekend. The writer, who penned the latest 007 novel, Trigger Mortis, at the request of Ian Fleming's estate, landed in hot water on Tuesday when the Internet took notice of an interview published in The Daily Mail on Sunday. In it, Horowitz assured the paper that he's totally on board for a black man to play Bond, but said he found Elba "probably a bit too 'street'" for the role. "Is it a question of being suave?" Horowitz asked. "Yeah." The suggestion that see more

Theo James on Cologne, Hydration, and Staying in Shape

If you know Theo James, it's from one of two places: his one-episode arc as a seductive houseguest on Downton Abbey, or his role as Tobias Eaton in the dystopic blockbuster franchise Divergent. That's about to change: Today, James becomes the face of Boss: The Scent, a warm, slightly boozy cologne from Hugo Boss. You can expect to see him on billboards, in magazine ads, and in a Darren Aronofsky-directed film spot, all before he makes waves later this year with roles in London Fields (alongside Amber Heard and Johnny Depp) and The Secret Scripture (starring with Rooney Mara). see more

There Are Limited-Edition Collections, and Then There's This

Kelly Slater and John Moore in shirts from Outerknown's Limited Supply capsule. The smart, simply designed pieces from Kelly Slater's nascent brand Outerknown are already released in small quantities. So he and designer John Moore understand the irony in naming their first capsule collection Limited Supply. "The funny thing is, our main collection is produced in runs no larger than 300 pieces," Slater wrote in an e-mail. "Keeping our quantities to a minimum allows us to move faster and make awesome pieces we're proud of without sacrificing quality. We can also use materials that are harder to find." The hyperfocused see more
