With producers set for "Fifty Shades of Grey" and the casting process heating up, we're guessing that plenty of actors and actresses are going to start throwing their names into the pot to play Christan Grey and Anastasia Steele in the adaptation of the hit erotic novel. The one man we didn't expect to get in on the action? "The League" comedian Paul Scheer.
The actor posted his "audition tape" to College Humor, but it's clear that he wasn't very prepared to read for the part of Christian. After attempting some of the character's more seductive lines, Scheer kept bursting out laughing and finally had to ask, "What is this book about?"
With the upcoming election, the people of the United State will exercise their right as citizens and help choose the president of our great nation. But when it comes down to just two parties, don't you ever wish the field of candidates was more diverse?
Well, the folks over at Next Movie have taken care of that with a new series of campaign posters featuring fictional characters from some of your favorite movies.
Check out the posters after the jump!
Odds are that if you've seen a "Savages" trailer, poster or TV spot for Oliver Stone's new ensemble crime thriller, you're well aware that there is a lot going on in this film. There's a star-studded cast, lots of drugs, lots of blood, lots of violence.
In the week leading up to the film's release, we've already covered some of the film's serious subjects, like the stars' thoughts on the film's gratuitous violence and equal opportunity nudity, as well as the leading ladies' argument for why their characters are both motivated by love, not war.
As such, we thought we'd end the week on a humorous note and prep a little quiz for stars Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson and John Travolta to see how familiar they were with other Savages in pop culture. The results were entertaining, to say the least.
Despite his foul mouth, anger management issues and promiscuous behavior, Ted the teddy bear, star of the movie "Ted", still has a cute and cuddly factor. He's a stuffed bear, you can't escape a bit of the 'Aww' factor, and he comes from a long line of famous fuzzy celebrities.
When MTV News caught up with Ted's director, Seth MacFarlane, recently, we asked him to compare Ted to other famous celebrity bears, like Snuggles from the Snuggles laundry detergent commercials, '80s toy Teddy Ruxpin, "The Muppets" funnyman Fozzie Bear and the colorful Care Bears.
As was to be expected, Ted and MacFarlane aren't exactly super fans of their famous brethren, but they did have some high praise for one lucky bear.
"Snuggles, what the hell? He's a recluse," he said. "Who the f--- hides out in the goddamn laundry? Sitting in the goddamn laundry all day, who does that? It's f------ creepy."

The vampire-slaying exploits of America's 16th president are getting major press this week with the release of the big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's bestselling, pseudo-historical novel "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."
Timur Bekmambetov directs and Benjamin Walker stars in the film, which paints a surprisingly convincing picture of how the President's quest for vengeance against vampires could have shaped our country's history.
All things being equal, Honest Abe couldn't possibly be the only world leader to have supernatural beings (other than skeletons) in his closet. Surely the weird hobbies and strange experiences that others have notoriously had could translate to equally compelling books and films.
Here are five more world leaders and their experiences that lend themselves quite nicely to a tale of fantastical historical fiction.
As you may have heard over the weekend, Ryan Seacrest's production company is developing a game show based on the latest app phenomenon, "Draw Something." The series will pit celebrity contestants and regular folks like you against each other in an interactive game of Pictionary.
If you're anything like us, the news came with a groan and an eye roll, because "Draw Something" obviously should have been adapted as a feature film. With movie producers snapping up the film rights to anything that moves, it's a surprise that no one saw the potential for a live action feature based on the property.
Well, we did, so here are our three pitches for the "Draw Something" movie.
The David-8 viral video remains one of the greatest pieces of movie marketing seen all year long. The introduction of Michael Fassbender's "Prometheus" android was touching, amusing and awe-inspiring all at once. It was also ripe for parody—and that parody has finally arrived.
Joel McHale, who recently starred in a very different parody for the MTV Movie Awards, makes his introduction on tonight's episode of The Soup as Joel 8, an eighth generation robotic clip show host: he's handsome, funny, handsome, good looking, and empty.
Among the things he can do: he can play "Hungry, Hungry Hippos" by himself, he can tell jokes his human clip show host counterparts might find offensive, racist, sexist or stupid, and … well, not much else really, not until after his morning meeting with scotch.
Meet Joel-8 in the video below.
Hooray for Movie Awards season and the cutthroat competition between this year's very deserving group of nominees! And although the majority of the nominations were snagged by some popular wizards, bridesmaids and tributes, there is plenty of Movie Awards love and Golden Popcorn to go around. Kinda.
Speaking of Movie Awards love, we have to give it up to first-time nominee Oliver Cooper for putting together this very clever campaign video and Facebook page.
"These are the nominees for Best Onscreen Dirtbag, but only one of them has a proven track record as a douchebag," the ad begins. "He's been called a crude, pushy creep, and 'the most annoying movie character since Jar Jar Binks.'"
Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are not playing nice in "The Campaign," and their latest political ads are showing just that.
Instead of first releasing a trailer for the movie, the folks behind Jay Roach's latest film are opting to play up the flick like the epic showdown it promises to be. "The Campaign" is appropriately about the competing campaigns between two rival politicians—Ferrell and Galifianakis—seeking a South Carolina congressional seat.
The movie's Facebook page is up and running, and the competitors -- Cam Brady and Marty Huggins -- have their own personal pages featuring the previously mentioned ads. We're definitely torn as to who deserves our vote.
When you think about a Tenacious D music video, a few things come to mind. There will likely be some fantasy elements like in the devil in "Tribute." You could also probably bet on a sword showing up, like in the "Lord of the Rings"-inspired "Wonderboy" video.
For their latest video effort, "Rize of the Fenix," the D has thrown just about everything in the repertoire together to make the ultimate special effects video experience.
