The "porn star name game" is a time-honored tradition in America.
It's a game pretty much anyone can play, depending on the rules — we employ the First Name: First Pet, Last Name: Street You Grew Up On method (our apologies to those with allergies, maybe you had a goldfish?). And the results are, without fail, hilarious.
We asked 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Paul Rudd, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Jon Hamm, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100.

Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").
For the last three years, fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of the superhero sequel to end all superhero sequels, "Kick-Ass 2." And today, MTV and NextMovie are presenting the exclusive premiere of the first ever "Kick-Ass 2" trailer.
Now that's really kick-ass! (See what we did there?) Get More »
What does it mean to be cool? It's pretty damn subjective. So when compiling our list of the 25 coolest people making movies right now (somebody had to do it, right?), we accounted for various factors.
These are the actors who not only impress us onscreen (though that helps), but convey a certain genuineness off it, be it at awards shows, on TV appearances or during our own personal experiences interviewing them. They can be multi-talents, also excelling at music, art or writing. And they can make a habit of turning up in hilarious viral videos or even at your local karaoke bar.
But most of all, these are the 25 actors we'd really just like to sit down and have a beer with.
Welcome to NextMovie's 1st annual Cool List – and let us know who makes your own list in the comments section below. Get More »
We met him as epic dork McLovin, but in the five years since "Superbad," Christopher Mintz-Plasse has built an admirably diverse resume, playing a nerdy super-villain ("Kick-Ass"), a nerdy dragon enthusiast ("How To Train Your Dragon"), a nerdy vampire ("Fright Night") and... okay, it's not that diverse. But it's really fun.
With his return to the world of voice acting in stop-motion kids' thriller "ParaNorman," Mintz-Plasse finally throws off the shackles of nerd-dom in his role as dimwitted school bully Alvin. When we spoke during this week's press blitz, we asked how it felt to turn the tables — social-hierarchically speaking — and why certain roles beg for a second life while others should be laid to rest forever.

Sometimes interviewing the hottest celebs on the planet isn't as easy as it looks. NextMovie editor Kevin Polowy hit the red carpet at Comic-Con 2012 to interview Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Anna Kendrick and Kodi Smit-McPhee about their upcoming movie "ParaNorman."
Unfortunately, it doesn't go so well for Kevin, but luckily Mintz-Plasse was there to put his reporter hat on and save the interview. Has he done this before?
In 2010, director Matthew Vaughn ("X-Men: First Class") co-wrote, directed, and self-financed a superhero movie all true-blue comic book fans could believe in, one with swears, huge body counts and a 10-year-old girl who murders criminals.
Now, after a couple years of intense speculation, "Kick-Ass" is getting a sequel, and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Vaughn is shopping it to Universal as opposed to his Lionsgate partners on the previous entry. The actors who brought a wired energy to the characters of wannabe vigilantes Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson), Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and the foul-mouthed Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) are all expected to reprise their antics.

In 1985, William Ragsdale and Roddy McDowall took suburban vampire hunting to the next level in "Fright Night." Now the cult classic is getting a 21st century facelift in the form of Colin Farrell as the seductive bloodsucker named Jerry who's making local teens disappear.
Filling Ragsdale and McDowall's shoes are Anton Yelchin as Charley and David Tennant as Peter Vincent, and taking over Stephen Geoffreys's duties as the irrepressible "Evil" Ed Thompson is "Superbad" star Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
Can Pavel Chekov and Dr. Who save the townsfolk before they all get fanged by Jerry? Find out on Friday when "Fright Night" gets you out of the sunlight and into the theater for some vampire-staking fun -- and get ready with the three clips below. Get More »
Yesterday we told you about a couple of movies ubiquitous comedian Bill Hader has percolating, and today we're learning of yet another in his virtual avalanche of promising projects, which will henceforth be known as a "Haderlanche."
Written by Hader's wife Maggie Carey, "The Hand Job" made a splash on the 2009 Black List of Hollywood's best unproduced screenplays, and the SNL superstar has told Collider that, "It’s got Aubrey Plaza, me, Andy Samberg, Donald Glover, Connie Britton, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, and Johnny Simmons," then later confirmed Chris Mintz-Plasse (aka McLovin) is also cast.

Audiences' appetite for computer-animated family adventures featuring expressive googly-eyed creatures is seemingly never ending. "How to Train Your Dragon," the latest from DreamWorks — the studio that brought you "Shrek" and "Kung Fu Panda" — is this charming film set in the mythical world of tough-talking Vikings and dragons and based on a children's novel by Cressida Cowell.
Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) is a gentle teenaged soul, which is exactly what his burly Viking father Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler) doesn't want him to be; he wants his son to do what every other teen learns to do on the island of Garett and Tanner: slay dragons. Get More »
Eager fans wondering if they would have a chance to return to the magical world of "How to Train Your Dragon" can rest easy. The lessons have only just begun.
