    "The Newlywed Game" is a fun cruel exercise where couples compete to see how well they really know their partner. Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen aren't a romantic couple, but they do have an enviable friendship -- although judging from this video, they definitely wouldn't win in a relationship trivia smackdown.

    Get In The Horrifying Holiday Spirit With A Reading From The Nightmare Before Christmas By Patrick Stewart

    Fun fact! Though in the final cut of The Nightmare Before Christmas, the opening poem is said by Edward Ivory (who also plays "Sandy Claws"), originally Patrick Stewart prrovided the narration. The studio didn't use his voice, instead throwing it in the soundtrack. We sort of wish they had used it, though, because it's amazing.

    Captain Picard Sings the Alphabet

    No, it's not a clip from Sesame Street. (Though there are plenty enough of those.) In fact, we're actually not sure where this comes from, but we don't care. If we think about it too hard it might disappear. (Lyrics here, via Zoe Chevat.)

    Sylvester McCoy to Play Radagast the Brown? Wait… Radagast in The Hobbit?

    The buzz about Sylvester McCoy, veteran of British television (including a stint playing the Doctor), lately has been that he is in talks to play a certain part in The Hobbit, though definitely "not the Bilbo role." (In other interesting facts: he also once played the part of the Fool in King Lear, against, yes, Ian McKellen as the titular monarch.)

Why do we care about negotiations for a bit part in The Hobbit? Because we're obssesed? Well, yes. Of course. But also because Radagast doesn't actually appear in The Hobbit, but if he does, it gives us a big hint on one of the movies' big spectacles. This is one of those prime examples of how Tolkien was an incredible historian and linguist but perhaps a bad novelist.
