"Are you-- are you the Hulk?" Prepare yourself for, quite possibly, the most adorable and charming story about mistaken superhero identity ever. Sure, Mark Ruffalo plays the Hulk as part of 'The Avengers,' but we all know that he's not actually the Hulk...right? Well, if you happen to be a pre-schooler, that line might be a little (understandably) blurred. This is a bit of an issue when non-Hulk Ruffalo participates in normal activities -- including being the parent of a pre-schooler.

Many celebrities would likely balk at turning their late night chat show appearance into a remembrance of a recently passed star -- too emotional, too sad, too something -- but Edward Norton not only took the time during his segment on last night's 'Late Show' to talk about director Mike Nichols with host David Letterman, he did it was style, grace, and some really lovely personal stories.

NBC’s ‘Parks and Recreation’ put some literal and figurative madness into its sixth season finale, tossing a Jon Hamm cameo into the brisk final sequence that saw the Pawnee gang jumping through time to 2017. Now, with ‘Parks’ final bow on the horizon for 2015, NBC confirms that the ‘Mad Men’ star will return in his role as the ever-incompetent Ed.

Telltale Games
We’ve known for some time that Telltale Games would mount their take on HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ complimenting their acclaimed adaptations of ‘The Walking Dead’ comics and even ‘Back to the Future,’ and at last the first trailer for “Iron From Ice” has arrived, with a twist. Not only does Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) herself narrate, but so too will Peter Dinklage and more from the ‘Game of Thrones’ cast reprise their roles!

EDIT

FX
Welcome to another episode of ‘Soap Opera: Freak Show,’ in which we’ve (hopefully) reached peak melodrama. Although Jessica Lange’s Elsa subdues herself somewhat in “Test of Strength,” allowing for more theatrical performances from the father/son bonding of Michael Chiklis’ Dell and Evan Peters’ Jimmy, there’s still way too much heightened drama and not enough of that horror that the show’s title promises. And where’s all the bonkers weirdness that we’ve come to love from Ryan Murphy and Co.? This season has worked itself into a woefully boring rut.

IFC
The always-welcome weirdness of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s IFC ‘Portlandia’ will return in 2015 for its fifth season (might it be the last?) on January 8, and this season might be the biggest yet. The first full trailer for ‘Portlandia’ season 5 has eco-biked its way down the hill, bringing an “epic” tone and more guest stars than we can rightly shake an organic celery stalk at.
