1. Morgan Freeman fell asleep during an interview
In a recent promotional appearance for the upcoming Now You See Me, Morgan Freeman demonstrated his decades of experience getting audiences excited for his films by falling asleep in the middle of an interview. The video, which features Freeman alongside costar Michael Caine, sees the actor nod off during a live interview as Caine drones on in his hypnotic British accent. "Maybe [Freeman] was up too late partying," suggests Q13 Fox — or maybe he just feels the same way the rest of us do about Now You See Me.

2. A Psy impostor is sneaking into parties at Cannes
Be on alert, Cannes attendees: The "Psy" who's been attending your parties isn't the Gentleman you think he is. According to Entertainment Weekly, a Psy impostor has been using his resemblance to the "Gangnam Style" singer to sneak into a number of exclusive parties at the film festival, hobnobbing with stars like Naomie Harris and Adrien Brody. Now that the word is out, it's unlikely that anyone else at the festival will be able to trick anyone into thinking they're the brains behind a one-hit wonder — so better luck next time, all you Baha Men impersonators.

3. Kim Kardashian doesn't understand how she got pregnant
E! has finally released a promo for the eighth — eighth! — season of reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The new clip, which is available at Us Weekly, offers a telling glimpse of Kim Kardashian adjusting to life with a bun in the oven. "How the f--- did I get like this?" asks Kardashian, referring to her pregnancy — though the answer should be fairly obvious to anyone who's taken a seventh grade health class.

4. The Walking Dead will never die, says AMC
How long can humans survive in a zombie apocalypse? As long as it remains profitable to broadcast it on cable television. "We hope that zombies live forever and we've just begun to find out what the post-apocalyptic world is like," says AMC CEO Josh Sapan in an interview quoted at ComingSoon.net, adding that he hopes they'll be "discussing the fact that Walking Dead is not over" in 2022. This assumes, of course, that people will still interested in watching TV when they have flying cars and hoverboards.

5. Lea Michele is writing a book
Because no young TV star's career is complete without a gratuitous book deal, Glee star Lea Michele has signed a deal with Harmony Books to pen Brunette Ambition, an irritatingly titled book which will serve as "part memoir, part how-to and part style guide." The New York Times reports that the book will follow Michele "from normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television" — which is either a really, really generous description of Glee, or a hint that she's been playing a zombie on The Walking Dead all along.
