True Detective may be one of HBO's hottest shows right now, but Community stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash aren't so sure that everyone truly understands what Matthew McConaughey (Rust) and Woody Harrelson (Marty) are saying in the cop drama.
For a short segment on McHale's satiric E! talk show, The Soup, the comedian slips into McConaughey's role while Rash pulls of his impression of Harrelson on the new series. In recreating key scenes, the pair not only exaggerate the characters' southern accents but also spout some nonsensical dialogue, a crack at the show's lines rich that are rich with metaphors.
Regardless of whether or not folks can understand what Rust and Marty are saying every Sunday night, it doesn't seem to be hurting viewership!

Lindsay Lohan feels like a "prisoner."
The 27-year-old star left rehab over seven months ago, following the completion of court-mandated treatment, and began working on documentary series Lindsay for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, but in the first trailer (seen after the jump!) for the show she's seen breaking down as she admits she feels trapped by the cameras.
"I don't want them following me to an AA [alcoholics anonymous] meeting," she said, sitting in her apartment with a companion. When asked if she ever feels like a prisoner, she added, "Yes, all the time."
The Mean Girls actress opened up about her wild past and claimed she's not interested in partying anymore as she's already done everything there is to do. "There's nothing left in a having a drink for me. What's left in that feeling? Nothing. There's no party that I haven't gone to, there's no person I haven't hung out with. There's no situation I haven't been exposed to," she explained.
Despite Lena Dunham's great success with her HBO series Girls, the 27-year-old has revealed that she had been fired from her last HBO project, Mildred Pierce.
"I got fired off the one day I did. Fired might be a rough word but I got sweetly dismissed," Dunham said.
The Girls creator admitted that she didn't properly prepare for her role as a nurse in the period drama, which stars Kate Winslet: "I didn't practice. I looked over the script with my mom and since the project takes place in the '30s I was like, 'Am I supposed to do any kind of accent?' My mom was like, 'They are hiring you to be you. Just go for it.' "
Unfortunately for Lena, her mom's advice didn't work out: "You could just see everybody's face drop... It was like Ricky Gervais in Extras. They were like, 'This is a f***ing disaster.'"

Kate Mara's family don't approve of her stripping on screen.
The 30-year-old actress is currently starring in the Netflix original series House of Cards alongside Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright and admits she has to warn her parents if she takes her clothes off in any of the scenes:
"They [my parents] don't love it that I occasionally have to take off certain items of clothing. We sort of have an unspoken rule of, if my character on House of Cards or during a photo-shoot I have to be in my underwear or something, I sort of send out a family text about it. 'Beware of the first 30 seconds of House of Cards - you will be disturbed.'"
Kate has always tried to reassure her family about her on-screen antics and says her phrase "It's just acting dad" has become so popular in her household, her father has named his racehorse after it.
Word about Lindsay Lohan's upcoming reality show initially surfaced when Oprah was rumored to have problems dealing with the troubled star, but things have been unusually quiet for Lohan otherwise (with all the Justin Bieber, Shia LaBeouf, and Kardashian stories lately - who can blame her for taking a back seat in the tabloids?). Naturally, to drum up some publicity for her series, OWN - Oprah's network which is both behind and set to air the project - has released a photo of Lohan to promote it.
Taken as if someone were either creepily lurking Lohan from a corner or simply catching a private-yet-candid photo, the 27-year-old has got her serious model face on, with her hair perfectly coiffed and styled to the T.

Downton Abbey's Laura Carmichael thinks her character is the Carrie Bradshaw of the 1920s.
The actress, who plays Lady Edith Crawley in the period drama, imagines her to be like Sarah Jessica Parker's Sex And The City alter ego, because she writes a column for a newspaper about women's issues, despite it not being mentioned often in the show.
"I do love to think of her in my head as Carrie Bradshaw of the 20s. She's got a column on being a modern woman. Probably far less racy," she said.
Although Edith's work isn't mentioned much on the show, it is important to Laura that it remains a part of the character. "Her writing was still going on this season, and I kept checking with the producers to make sure of it. She would submit an article monthly to the newspaper, and it would have been this casual column. It was pretty common of women of her status," she explained.
Reports that he might be doing otherwise have surfaced today, prompting the former Olympian to release a statement confirming his continued participation of his family’s reality show: "The reports of me quitting Keeping Up With The Kardashians are completely fabricated. I'm currently shooting season nine and look forward to season ten and any future seasons. I love working with my family."
Rumors of his departure were rooted in gossip that Bruce wanted to get out of the spotlight.
His estranged wife Kris was the first to object to the news: "This story is completely made up. We are filming daily with the entire family including Bruce and look forward to filming season 10 in January!"

With the success of its shows Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, and Arrow, it's no surprise that The CW has announced an early renewal of their veteran series' seasons for the 2014-2015 TV season.
Next season would mark Supernatural's tenth, Arrow's third, and The Vampire Diaries' sixth. The network - which tends to favor programming geared towards a younger audience - also renewed rookie series The Originals and Reign.
"This season we've had great success with our new hit series The Originals paired with Supernatural, giving us our best Tuesday nights in years... The Vampire Diaries is No. 2 in its time period in the young adult demos, and with Arrow continuing to gain among young men, and Reign growing its time period, we now have strong nights on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I'm very pleased to announce early pickups for all five series and let our fans know they’ll have more great drama to look forward to next season," CW president Mark Pedowitz said.
The network has yet to decide whether it will renew its other veteran series Beauty and the Beast, Hart of Dixie, and The Carrie Diaries.

Matthew Morrison wants Simon Cowell and One Direction to make cameo appearances on Glee.
The singer-and-actor thinks the band - which includes Zayn Malik, 21, Harry Styles, 20, Louis Tomlinson, 22, Liam Payne, 20, and Niall Horan, 20 - could join the comedy drama as students attending McKinley High School in Ohio. "We have been so fortunate to have some great cameos, and to have One Direction on would be great for the show. They are not much older than High School age so we could have them as students. And I am sure the younger female cast members wouldn't object to their presence either," Matthew said.
The 35-year-old actor and his co-star Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester) are also hoping for media mogul Simon - whose reality show X Factor helped catapult the band into the spotlight in 2010. "Both mine and Jane Lynch's dream cameo is Simon Cowell. So maybe the boys could bring their manager. It would make great TV seeing Sue Sylvester and Simon Cowell go head to head," he explained.
USA is pulling the plug on its longest-running original series, Psych.

The final season celebrates the iconic characters that have made this show so beloved, and will be an exclamation point on the series’ incredible run," said USA Network president Chris McCumber.
