Neil Patrick Harris wants to be on 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' (Updated)

Neil Patrick Harris is a man of many talents and many more projects. But after rumors spread that Harris could potentially take over David Letterman’s The Late Showwhich Harris shot down—he revealed another project he’d be more interested in.

Harris stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) and talked to Mario Correa about his love of variety shows, freak shows, and therefore, the upcoming American Horror Story: Freak Show. In the clip, Harris confesses that he actually wrote co-creator Ryan Murphy a letter asking to be on the new show, because that’s how much he loves the series (and freaks). Sadly, Murphy hasn’t responded.

UPDATE: Ryan Murphy responded to Harris on Twitter, claiming that there is a role available if Harris wants it.

Capt. Sig Hansen explains how you swap VHS tapes on the Bering Sea

As season 10 of Discovery’s Deadliest Catch continues, fans can see how Capt. Sig Hansen and his Northwestern crew are adjusting to having greenhorn Mandy Hansen, Sig’s 18-year-old daughter, on deck—and occasionally, in the wheelhouse. (Sorry, Jake Anderson.)

When Sig and Mandy stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) on Monday, Sig explained why he’s never eager to have a woman onboard (a topic other Catch captains discussed with EW before the season began). Since this was the TV Editor’s Hour, we also discussed how crews entertain themselves when they aren’t on a grind. The guys on the Cape Caution may fight over Sons of Anarchy DVDs, but Suits is a popular pick on the Northwestern. And while we’ve seen the Northwestern trade deckhands while at sea, Sig explains the lost/tricky art of swapping VHS tapes. READ FULL STORY

Listen: Patrick J. Adams reveals why he really guest starred on 'Pretty Little Liars'

Suits star Patrick J. Adams visited EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) on Monday, and while he started The Editor’s Hour off right by singing along to Foreigner’s “I Want to Know What Love Is”—he has a lovely falsetto—his performance during our “You Said It!” game is what you really need to hear. How it works: We read lines from some of his previous TV credits, and he tries to identify the show and provide an interesting anecdote about shooting the role.

Listen to highlights below, which include Adams sharing how he guested on Pretty Little Liars in 2010 to win back series star Troian Bellisario, who’d broken up with him (it worked, they’re engaged), failed to play it cool alongside Lost‘s Terry O’Quinn, and almost got his own Ghost Whisperer spin-off. And psst, Orphan Black fans: He also describes how Helena’s hair really feels. READ FULL STORY

Chris Colfer on his Twitter getting hacked: 'It sucked'

Talk about a rough landing: Chris Colfer was getting off an hours-long flight from London to L.A. when he found out his Twitter had been hacked and the hacker had told the entire internet that Colfer was let go from Glee. “It sucked,” Colfer–who is definitely not let go from Glee–told Jessica Shaw in an Entertainment Weekly Radio interview.

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman promises 'a ton of answers' in the season 5 premiere

The folks from The Walking Dead have not exactly been forthcoming with info as to what is in store for our not-so-merry band of survivors trapped in train car A when the zombie drama returns to AMC in October. But when Robert Kirkman called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk about his new comic Outcast, he also spilled the beans on what we can expect in the season 5 premiere of TWD. So what should we expect? Answers! And lots of them, especially when it comes to the (possibly cannibal) captors of Terminus. “There’s a lot going on with Terminus,” says Kirkmam. “In our premiere episode of season 5 we’re going to give a ton of answers of who the people of Terminus are, what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, what’s going on with them. And by the end of that episode you’re going to have a much better understanding of what’s going on with them and why they’re so important to the show. Oh, and Daryl dies.” READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: 'Survivor' champ Parvati talks possible all-winners season

It’s been discussed many times before, but Survivor still has yet to pull out an all-winners edition of the reality franchise. If they ever did stage the ultimate battle royale, the question is — would one of the best winners ever, Parvati Shallow, come back for it? In the past, Pavarti has claimed that she is done as a contestant (having played three times, winning the Micronesia season and being runner-up for Heroes vs. Villains), but we posed the question again last week when she guested on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105), which was broadcasting from Nicaragua for the filming of Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water. So what did she say this time? READ FULL STORY

'Survivor': Redemption Island axed for new twist -- EXCLUSIVE

As Entertainment Weekly Radio’s Survivor Week continues, the scoops keep coming from host Jeff Probst: Turns out Redemption Island won’t be a part of Survivor: San Juan Del Sur — Blood vs. Water after all.

Probst had told EW back in May that the polarizing twist would return. But producers ended up having a change of heart and came up with a new addition to the game, much to the surprise of the players (which number 18 after two left the show for medical reasons, just 48 hours before shooting began). “We decided, we have this arena being built: What if instead of [Redemption Island], we use it for something else. Something that will make Blood vs. Water a little more… interesting,” Probst tells EW, directly from the set of the 29th season now filming in Nicaragua. Listen to the interview below.

'Survivor': Two contestants left show before filming began in Nicaragua -- EXCLUSIVE

The 29th season of CBS’ Survivor has begun filming in Nicaragua, and host Jeff Probst says that two contestants left the show 48 hours before the competition began for medical reasons.

“We just lost two contestants [Friday],” Probst tells EW’s Dalton Ross, who’s hosting EW Morning Live with Jessica Shaw from the set of Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water all week on Entertainment Weekly Radio. “We came out here with 20. We spend months casting our show — months. I mean, this is like….who you’re gonna ask to prom. All year you’re like, ‘Is it her or her?’ and ‘Will she say yes?’ And you finally get your 20 people, and then through no fault of their own — just a medical situation — they can’t play…. So instead of 20, it puts us at 18. Instead of equal men and women, it puts us uneven men and women.”

Listen to Probst explain why the show must go on in the clip below. Bonus: You’ll also hear a Survivor helicopter pass overhead. READ FULL STORY

Before 'Crossbones,' 'CSI' was the only series John Malkovich considered -- LISTEN

John Malkovich has done TV movies and miniseries, but the May 30 premiere of NBC’s Crossbones marks his first role as a series regular. As Malkovich, who stars as the pirate Blackbeard in the drama from Luther creator Neil Cross, tells Entertainment Weekly Radio, he’d only ever been approached about starring in one other show: CSI, when William Peterson left the CBS procedural. “I had a conversation with Billy. I had a conversation with Gary Sinise, who’s also an old friend and does the other CSI. Sort of about what that was, what it meant, what the life was, etc.,” he says.

In the end, he couldn’t imagine losing his freedom to do other projects for nine months of the year. “I really had to think about it because I was doing two operas, I still direct plays all the time, doing other little films that interested me — I mean, that, okay, nobody saw and you don’t get paid for and blah, blah, blah, but that interested me. I didn’t know if I could see myself doing that. And both Billy and Gary thought they could not see me doing that, but go ahead if you want,” he adds with a laugh. READ FULL STORY

'The Normal Heart': Ryan Murphy cried at the sight of Matt Bomer's severe weight loss -- LISTEN

No one expects to get through HBO’s adaptation of The Normal Heart, Larry Kramer’s semiautobiographical play about the rise of AIDS in New York in the early 1980s, without sobbing. But just listening to director Ryan Murphy describe Matt Bomer’s severe weight loss to play Felix Turner, a New York Times style writer whose body is decimated by the disease, will likely get you misty. HBO allowed Murphy to shut down production from July to November last year so Bomer could lose 40 pounds. “I literally think I burst into tears when I saw him, I was so worried for his health,” Murphy told Entertainment Weekly Radio. “I was so worried for his health, because he had taken it taken it to such a level. He was in a chair getting a haircut, and he could barely turn to greet me, he was so weak. But he carried the weight of all the ghosts of those people who had died. I remember he had a very big nude scene in the shower scene, where he had to basically collapse. And that was always the height of his thinness. And we’re like, ‘Okay, after this scene, you’re gonna be in clothes, so you can start to bulk up again hopefully….’ So to celebrate, he had a cracker. He threw up the cracker. His body had been so deprived for so long that he couldn’t hold any food.”

Listen to a clip of Murphy’s chat with EW Morning Live host Dalton Ross below. He also explains why Bomer and Mark Ruffalo, who plays Felix’s partner Ned, cried for 20 minutes after filming Bomer’s final scene.  READ FULL STORY

Zoe Saldana talks 'Rosemary's Baby,' reveals how tight script security is with 'Avatar' and 'Star Trek' -- LISTEN!

There are three things that helped Zoe Saldana decide to take on the role of Rosemary in NBC’s two-part remake of Rosemary’s Baby, premiering Sunday (Mother’s Day, how nice!) and concluding May 15: She liked the people she’d be working with, she found a way to remove the pressure of worrying about how fans of the classic 1968 Roman Polanski film would receive the update; and oh yes, she’d be spending three months in Paris, where this version of the horror story is set. It may have been that last one that sealed the deal, which she jokingly admitted when she stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105). Listen to her chat with EW Morning Live hosts Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw below. You will also learn that the French do not take it easy on gorgeous movie stars who don’t speak their language.

In the second clip, Saldana gives updates on the next Avatar and Star Trek films, reveals just how crazy script security on J.J. Abrams and James Cameron movies can get, and is very happy to hear Dalton say he’s genuinely looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy (she got up at 3:30 a.m., six days a week, for five months, to spend four hours in the makeup chair to play Gamora).

Kiefer Sutherland explains why one CIA operative wanted him to call his mom -- LISTEN!

Jack Bauer is almost back. Ahead of the May 5 debut of 24: Live Another Day, Kiefer Sutherland sat down with Entertainment Weekly editor Matt Bean for a SiriusXM Town Hall premiering May 2 at 7 p.m. ET on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105). Sutherland took questions from the audience, including one that led him to recount the story of a real CIA operative recognizing him on a ski lift and the conversation that ensued. The gentleman was a fan of the Fox drama but had one request: “He said, ‘I would really like it if you could call my mother and explain to her why I can’t get everything done in 24 hours,’” Sutherland says. “And so I apologized to him profusely.”

Listen to the clip below. Another fan, who’d marathoned 24, asked Sutherland which shows he’s binge-watched. Find out the answer in our second sneak peek. READ FULL STORY
