Jesse Eisenberg Plays a Super Stoned Super Spy in the Upcoming American Ultra

Who says stoners can't be super spies? That's the premise of Oscar-nominated actor Jesse Eisenberg's new film American Ultra. In it, he plays a dormant tool of war who, like Jason Bourne before him, comes to the harsh realization that he's got a very particular set of skills. These include but are not limited to: disarming thugs with guns, killing assailants with his bare hands, and driving a Humvee through a plate glass store front without giving the massive amounts of damage incurred a second thought. The movie also stars John Leguizamo, Kristen Stewart, Connie Britton, and Topher Grace, see more

Life Is Strange Might Just Be the Best Video Game Ever Made

A mere two days after the Internet lost its collective mind in the bid to dissect Mad Men's ambiguous final episode, a French developer called Dontnod Entertainment quietly released the third installment of its episodic video game Life Is Strange—and in the process dropped a cliffhanger that proved about a hundred times more electrifying than whether or not Don Draper produced an ad for Coca-Cola. Life Is Strange has been trickling out over the usual platforms in two or three-hour increments every month-and-a-half since January, when "Chrysalis", the premiere episode, hit digital shelves. The first two episodes were very good, see more

The 10 Most Epic Disaster Movies of All Time

In San Andreas, half of California is leveled by an earthquake—and of course The Rock is on hand to help. It's the latest in a long and substantive tradition of disaster films, a genre that seems to have dwindled to obscurity over the last decade. It's now superhero movies, for better or worse, that fulfill our apparently insatiable desire to see city-scale destruction realized on the big screen, but it just isn't the same. We need to see skyscrapers topped and highways torn asunder without supernatural interference. We need to imagine ourselves in the throes of it: evading debris, hopping see more

David Duchovny on Aquarius, the Sixties, and Returning to The X-Files

David Duchovny has a decades-spanning IMDB page, so, quite naturally, he's many things to many people. Still, chances are most know the gruff actor in one of two ways: either as Fox Mulder, the incorrigible conspiracy theorist on Fox's nineties sci-fi behemoth The X-Files, or as the womanizing, forever-haphazard-living novelist Hank Moody on Showtime's long-running comedy Californication. Prepare to add another role to the list: Beginning tonight, Duchovny stars as Sergeant Sam Hodiac, a no-nonsense, flattop-sporting, Charles Manson-hunting detective on NBC's new sixties-era drama Aquarius. For the 54-year-old actor, Hodiac was the perfect character to inhabit at this point in see more

Watch Jason Segel as David Foster Wallace in the First Trailer for The End of the Tour

Two years after author David Foster Wallace committed suicide in 2008, writer David Lipsky published the book Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself, which chronicles five days during Foster Wallace's book tour to promote his highly praised novel Infinite Jest.

The Smoking Man Will Return in the X-Files Reboot

We have a long road ahead to the premiere of the X-Files reboot, but we're already getting hints about the highly anticipated reboot of the supernatural thriller. First things first: Agent Fox Mulder's elusive foil the Smoking Man will be making a return, reports Screen Crush. While all the details surrounding the show are highly protected and as mysterious as the Smoking Man himself, Duchovny did reveal that the first script made him cry, reports Entertainment Weekly. And while Fox currently has ordered only six episodes, Duchovny says that he'd be open to a second season of the reissued see more

Jon Stewart Talks Religious Freedom With Rand Paul, Hilarity Ensues

If there's one thing Jon Stewart is good at (and there are, in fact, many things Jon Stewart is good at), it's calling out politicians on their blatant hypocrisies. That's why it was such a delight to see the host sit down with U.S. Senator Rand Paul last night to talk about what the concept of personal freedom really means—and, perhaps more important, what it doesn't mean. For example, on the topic of businesses that refuse to provide services for same-sex weddings in the name of "religious freedom," Stewart challenged the senator thusly: "It seems like gay marriage looms see more

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Lost 40 Pounds by Eating One Can of Tuna a Day

If actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan is looking a little slimmer than usual, it's because he went on a dangerous crash diet to lose weight for his latest role in the History Channel's Texas Rising. Morgan, who you might remember from Grey's Anatomy or PS, I Love You, told the Today show he needed to lose about 10 pounds for his role in the miniseries, which tells the story of Texas rebelling against Mexico in the 1830s. But he ended up losing nearly 40 pounds by living on a single can of tuna every day. "I did it in the most see more

Jaden Smith Is Reportedly Playing Static Shock in an Upcoming Movie

Well, this would explain the dreadlocks. Word has it, noted gender nonconformist and Batman fan Jaden Smith will soon star in a superhero role of his own as the electricity-weilding teenager Static Shock. But Smith didn't break the news to the world, and neither did Warner Bros., which reportedly began working on a Static Shock film in the fall. Instead it was Smith's fellow thespian Tyler Williams. In an interview with Flick and the City, Williams responded to a question about the lack of superhero roles for young black actors by saying, "It's great to see Static Shock is happening see more
