I find it impossible to separate Michelle Dockery from Lady Mary, her character on “Downton Abbey,” and apparently neither can she. Even when playing Connie Tough, a bad ass cop in “Tough Justice” alongside Michael Chiklis — on TNT, natch — her hoity-toity side comes out. There is a prim and proper way to fight crime, you know. (Bonus: Jon Hamm narrates!) [Funny Or Die]
Ah, the Hand Bra: I know it well. Granted, I am more familiar with the Rachel Krause Hand Bra than the Rebecca Romijn Hand Bra, but a Hand Bra is a Hand Bra and they all work just the same. Except Rebecca’s version helps to call attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, while mine functions for more selfish reasons, such as not losing an eye while running for the subway. [Gossip Cop]
When I was in a book club, I only finished the chosen books about half the time. So I feel you, Taryn Manning (yup, Pennsatucky from “Orange Is The New Black”). I really feel you. But your mistake was lying about that shit. [Funny Or Die]
While most celebrity sex tapes include a lot of well, sex, Alyssa Milano gets risque and tackles social issues in the bedroom. Basically, her Funny Or Die sex tape spoof is the most genius way ever arouse interest about whats going on in Syria. I think Farrah Abraham would benefit greatly from watching it. And maybe Alyssa could do a follow up sex tape that focuses on the history of feminism. [Funny Or Die]
Okay, maybe not the ending of “Breaking Bad” but an ending for “Breaking Bad” — if the actor Dean Norris, who plays Hank Schrader, had his way. It involves a reverse-hair-growing process, a sexy babe, and a talking skateboard, so yeah, we’d totally watch this Hank-created version. Wouldn’t you? [Funny or Die]
Are you sick of us talking about “Game of Thrones” yet? Too bad! Because the Red Wedding was totally cray and we are gonna be talking about that shit for days, not counting the time spent crying about it to our therapist. Our favorite fellow straight iron enthusiast Jonathan is right there with us in the obsession. The guy behind the incredible “Gay of Thrones“ recaps is back with another one, this time in mourning shawl. [Funny Or Die]
Listen up, “Game of Thrones” fans — we have some weekend homework for you. Your assignment is to go back and watch all of Funny or Die’s “Gay of Thrones” recap series because for real? This is fucking “GoT” cracksauce. Each week, hairdresser Jonathan recaps all the dragons, butts, scheming and whatnot that “GoT” has to offer. He hasn’t done a recap for this past episode just yet, so we’re posting the one from episode seven instead.
We’re super sorry we slept on this so long, because this is required viewing for “GoT” fans. I mean, he refers to Daenarys as Christina Aguilera. I live for this.
To make your homework easier, we’ve embedded the other five episodes of “Gay of Thrones” (including one featuring Alfie Allen) after the jump. Keep reading »
Ha! Not really, but this is a reimagined glimpse back to the Postal Service’s formative years. In honor of the 10th anniversary of their debut album, we have PS member Jimmy Tamborello auditioning members for the spot that would eventually be taken by Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard (all of that was just too twee for words). Up for the job? Weird Al, Aimee Mann, Moby, Duff McKagan, Paige Hamilton from Helmet, Nate from Sunny Day Real Estate, Blink-182′s Tom Delonge and a slew of others.
Unrelated: Ben Gibbard has the largest, squarest head I’ve ever seen.
Anne Hathaway and Samuel L. Jackson both have pretty grim movies coming out just in time for the holidays. Hathaway stars in “Les Miserables” while Jackson is in Quentin Tarantino’s latest “Django Unchained.” In this Funny Or Die video, Anne and Sam prep for the holidays and compare notes on whose movie is more depressing. It’s Slaves Vs. Whores in this Sad-Off! [Funny Or Die]
