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.

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Any film that describes itself as "in the vein of 'Amelie' and '(500) Days of Summer'" certainly has our attention. Deadline reports that Captain America himself, Chris Evans, and Michelle Monaghan will star in "A Many Splintered Thing," an "anti-romantic comedy" that tells the story of a young man who meets a breathtaking — and engaged — young woman at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist.
• It looks like Max Minghella wants a set of "Horns," too. Variety reports that the "Social Network" star is in talks to join Daniel Radcliffe in the screen adaptation of Joe Hill's (son of Stephen King) novel about a man who wakes up after a night of debauchery to discover that he's grown a pair of ... well, horns.

But how does he compare to Butler's "300" warrior King Leonidas?
Imagine if you were forced to relive eight minutes of someone else's life over and over again. This is the intriguing premise of "Source Code," the second feature by Duncan Jones, the director of "Moon" and the unsurprisingly talented spawn of David Bowie.
When young soldier Colter Stephens (Jake Gyllenhaal) awakens, he finds himself on a Chicago commuter train sitting across from a beautiful woman named Christina (Michelle Monaghan). Confused as to why she thinks he is a schoolteacher named Sean Fentress, Colter explores his surroundings until a bomb goes off eight minutes later, destroying the train and killing everyone on board.

Michelle Monaghan knows her action movies. Unlike many of her contemporaries, the actress kicked off her Hollywood career rather quickly in high profile movies like "The Bourne Supremacy," "Mission: Impossible III," "Eagle Eye" and more.
Now, she co-stars alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in the mind-bending thriller "Source Code," and once again she's front and center in the action. Under the direction of Duncan Jones ("Moon," son of Bowie), "Code" follows Colter, a solider (Gyllenhaal) sent on board a train that will blow up eight minutes after he arrives, and using some cool gadgetry, is able to relive the events final eight minutes to uncover the cause.
