The "Star Wars" franchise is that nerdy little gift that just keeps on giving, one generation after another.
Not only is Disney furiously piecing together "Episode VII" to usher in a third round of installments in a galaxy not so far away, but cool items just keep poppin' on up from the first go-round as well. Get More »
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").
Ever since Disney acquired the rights to "Star Wars" in what is surely the last sign of the coming apocalypse, rumors have been flying that the cast of the original trilogy — namely Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford — will all be returning for "Star Wars: Episode VII." Heck, sometimes those rumors even come from the stars themselves, like Fisher's supposed "joke" yesterday about returning as Leia. It's hard to even figure out what's real and what's not at this point, right?
Well, if anybody would know the truth, you'd think it would be George Lucas — and in a new interview with Bloomberg Businessweek of all places, Lucas has just confirmed that all three stars will indeed be returning. Get More »
Star Wars fans: If the exhilaration that came with J.J. Abrams being attached to direct "Star Wars VII" has already worn off, then you clearly don't recognize the extent of Mr. Abrams's talent. You should at least have been excited until around mid-April. That's all we wanted to say. You may now go about your respective days.
Kidding! Please stick around for a bit as we let you in on a secret that our pals at Screencrush discovered: A 30-year-old documentary surrounding the making of "Empire Strikes Back" has been unearthed, and it's already on YouTube in all its early '80s Star Wars-ish glory. And it's embedded above! Give it a click! Get More »
Han Solo and Darth Vader may get all of the press, but when it comes to the original "Star Wars" trilogy, there's no real doubt who the story is really about: Luke Skywalker.
And since you can't have Luke Skywalker without star Mark Hamill, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Hamill is in talks to return to the "Star Wars" universe for "Episode VII" — assuming he wants to.
Which is a pretty damn fair assumption, to hear Hamill tell it. Get More »
When news broke last week that Disney is buying Lucasfilm and will be putting out a third "Star Wars" trilogy, reaction was mixed. And a big reason for that mixed reaction was the fact that fans were sure at least one original cast member wouldn't have anything to do with a return to "Star Wars:" Harrison Ford, who has long been dismissive of the role of Han Solo.
Well, if the news that there would be a new "Star Wars" trilogy wasn't shock enough, here's something that will really blow your mind: According to Entertainment Weekly, Ford is actually on board with reprising his role as Han Solo and is considering a return for "Episode VII." Holy smokes. Get More »
As any fan of "Star Wars" will tell you, The Force can do a lot of cool things. It can levitate objects, choke people from a distance, give you strange insight into the whereabouts of long lost relatives and cause lightning to shoot from your fingers if you're not careful. But there's apparently one thing even The Force can't do: Predict something as crazy as Disney buying Lucasfilm and the rights to the "Star Wars" universe.
Just ask Luke Skywalker. Get More »
