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").
Ignoring the fact that Colin Farrell's name sounds just about as Irish as it gets, there's still a shred of possibility that the southern drawl he spits as Jesse James throughout "American Outlaws" actually fooled a few theatergoers into thinking that this bushy-eyebrowed ladykiller was actually born a stars n' stripes yankee.
Let's face it: Farrell -- who currently stars in the new crime thriller "Dead Man Down" -- is a verbal chameleon, a man who has effortlessly toggled the fader on his pipes between his real Dublin-derived brogue and a convincing down-home All-American inflection throughout his two-decade-long career. Practically every role he's taken on has fit somewhere between those two points, but you'd have to subject yourself to a full-on Farrell filmography marathon to know just where each film ranks within his verbal spectrum. Accent charting clearly can't be accomplished overnight, especially when Colin Farrell is involved. Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Seth MacFarlane has scored quite the cowgirl! The "Ted" funnyman has rounded up the gorgeous (and quite funny herself) Charlize Theron to star in his new film, "A Million Ways to Die in the West," a self-described "Blazing Saddles"-type comedy about a sheepish farmer who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend leave him. [Heat Vision]
• Colin Farrell and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain are going classical with "Miss Julie," director Liv Ullmann's take on August Strindberg's 19th-century stage play about the sexually-charged battle of wills between a wealthy socialite and one of her head servants, with the servant's fiancee popping up every now and then to make things even more interesting. Samantha Morton is also set to star. [The Hollywood Reporter] Get More »
This week: Colin Farrell plays a screenwriter who gets an unexpected violent cure for his writer's block in "Seven Psychopaths," a pitch-black British comedy co-starring Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson.
You may or may not know that "Movie 43," the movie starring everyone you know and directed by everyone else, was seen by close to no one, making $5 million this weekend and finishing in a tie for sixth place at the box office. Disappointing, to be sure, and as is often the case when your movie is poorly reviewed and makes no money, now comes the 20/20 hindsight backtracking, courtesy of executive producer Peter Farrelly.
As our good buds at CinemaBlend report, Farrelly admits that his stars were pretty much guilted into being in the film. "They clearly wanted out! But we wouldn't let them." His strategy? "Wait for them. Shoot when they want to shoot. Guilt them to death." Get More »
Anyone who has seen the original Swedish version of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" knows that it is probably a pretty darn bad idea to mess with Noomi Rapace. Luckily for us as movie fans, though, the bad guys in her movies apparently don't have Netflix, because they keep making that same fatal mistake over and over.
And as the new trailer for "Dead Man Down" shows, not even Colin Farrell is enough of a badass to escape her power. Get More »
If you were a fan of writer/director Martin McDonagh's 2008 black comedy "In Bruges," then you're in luck because, for his new movie "Seven Psychopaths," he's multiplied the cast, the laughs and the gushing geysers of violence... by seven.
Colin Farrell plays Marty, a blocked screenwriter whose crazy friend Billy (Sam Rockwell) gets him involved in a dognapping that turns into a desperate run-in with the mob. Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson and Tom Waits help fill out the roster of basket cases. Get More »
What, no bunny?
The true star of "Seven Psychopaths" may have been noticeably missing from the Hollywood premiere, but Tom Waits, Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Abbie Cornish were spotted on the red carpet in celebration of Martin McDonagh's new crime comedy. And the dog's appearance proved that at least one of the film's four-legged scene-stealers didn't feel like giving its two-legged co-stars a chance to take center stage at the premiere after upstaging them left and right in the actual movie.
Check out our collection of pics from the premiere and join the "Seven Psychopaths" in theaters on Oct. 12.
So here's a movie pitch for you: Put Colin Farrell together with Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell in a film where they face off against a nutso Woody Harrelson. Then have the whole thing be written and directed by Farrell's "In Bruges" collaborator, Martin McDonagh. Oh, and add in Tom Waits clutching a bunny.
It sounds too amazing to be real, but go ahead and pinch yourself if you have to, because we have the new trailer for "Seven Psychopaths" right here. Sometimes it's just cool to be alive, isn't it? Get More »
We don't think the classic line "Get your ass to Mars" is in the remake, but that doesn't mean we're not going to refer to it every chance we get.
Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and other mind-benders walked the red carpet (OR DID THEY?) in celebration of director Len Wiseman's upgraded remix of Paul Verhoeven's 1990 sci-fi cult classic, "Total Recall." We noticed that no one arrived via Johnny Cab, which is ... well, a little disappointing, actually.
Check out our collection of pics from the premiere, and get your ass to "Total Recall" (see?) when it hits theaters on Aug. 3.
