Movie Stars Reveal Their Porn Star Names

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 over 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Channing Tatum, Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Salma Hayek, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100+.

Reporting by: Sandie Angulo Chen ("Millie 69"), Robert DeSalvo ("Rocky Waverly"), Claire Donovan ("Spunky Walter"), Elizabeth Durand ("Stephanie Veronica"), Bryan Enk ("Buck Densmore"), Max Evry ("Orion Cedar Crest "), Breanne Heldman ("Krugerrand Ardon"), Jenni Miller ("Mitzi Turtle Creek"), Kevin Polowy ("Sparkle Sterling"), Brandon Rae ("Sammi von Fernway"), Brooke Tarnoff ("Brandy W. Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").

'Now You See' Jesse Eisenberg Doing a Really Awkward Interview

We wanna give Jesse Eisenberg the benefit of the doubt most of the time, but this super duper weird interview makes it a little tough.

So, basically, this lady with Univision News does a semi-regular sketch interview series called "Say My Name with Romina" in which she gets all "Between Two Ferns"-y with her seemingly unaware celebrity interviewees. Sometimes they're totally game for it, like with Michael Pena and Snoop Dogg Lion. Other times, they're Jesse Eisenberg. Get More »

Watch Dave Franco Toss Cards While Grinning Like a Madman

Dave Franco (yes, the James Franco's little doppelganger brother) is called "The Sleight" in the upcoming heisty magic movie "Now You See Me," and now he's ready to prove that his hand skills do indeed live up to that moniker ... and also that, just like his brother, his intellect is likely of the right-brain nature.

Franco and real-life magician — or should we say as real-life as magicians get — David Kwong teamed up for this new promo video for the film in which Franco smiles maniacally and throws cards at the camera. It's a technique called, you guessed it, "card-throwing" and Franco proves to be pretty apt at it. It's all in the wrist, of course! Get More »

Our 12 Favorite Sets of Hollywood Lookalikes

Separated at birth? Long-lost twins? Vague coincidence? It's all possible when actors look so alike they could be siblings.

Is that Zachary Quinto, the Chief Science Officer of "Star Trek Into Darkness," running from the horror of "Aftershock"? Ah, no, at second glance, that's actually Quinto's doppelganger, Eli Roth, the man who gave us "Cabin Fever" and shot Hitler full o' holes in "Inglourious Basterds."

Anyway, with "Aftershock" and the new "Trek" being released back-to-back, we figured this was the perfect time to match up our favorite Hollywood doubles as they compete for roles, attention and DNA. It's like looking into a mirror! Get More »

Now You See Me Summit

It's time for a little movie magic ... or a movie about magic, rather.

Jesse Eisenberg Shows Off His 'Night Moves'

Let's get this out of the way right up front: No, "Night Moves" is not the long-awaited Bob Seger biopic. Sorry, fans of the Silver Bullet will have to wait just a little bit longer for that elusive pipe dream to become a reality.

But according to Collider, "Night Moves" does have two other things going for it, namely the fact that Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning are in discussions to join the film as co-stars.

Rock on. Get More »

Jesse Eisenberg Scores Laughs and Drugs in 'Why Stop Now' Trailer


With his perpetually tweaking OCD personality, "Social Network" Oscar-nominee Jesse Eisenberg always gets the most cinematic mileage out of dropping himself into super-frantic situations, i.e. robbing a bank ("30-Minutes or Less") or hunting the undead ("Zombieland").

After already having played a drug mule in "Holy Rollers," Eisenberg's neuroticism is about to go full-tilt boogie in "Why Stop Now," the trailer for which just debuted via Yahoo! Movies. Get More »

Dip Into This Trailer for Jesse Eisenberg Comedy 'Free Samples'

Film Harvest

Food trucks are so in right now, but working in one is no joke.

Meet Jillian, the anti-heroine of "Free Samples." Her life is a mess, and at the moment she's in charge of an ice cream truck despite a monster hangover and some rather poor decisions the night before. Or, in general, since she's dropped out of law school and bellied up to the bar.

"Free Samples" stars Jess Weixler as Jillian, Jesse Eisenberg as a would-be suitor, Halley Feiffer ("Bored to Death," "The Squid and the Whale") as Jillian's well-meaning friend and Jason Ritter as one of her unwitting customers/victims. Get More »

We're all about to find out, because word around Tinseltown is that Mia Wasikowska and Jesse Eisenberg have signed on to play hefty roles in the upcoming drama, "The Double."
