James Franco, Shia LaBeouf
Could Shia LaBeouf's recent bizarre behavior — including plagiarizing a short film, headbutting a man in a bar and wearing a paper bag over his head on a red carpet — all be part of a performance art piece? That's the question James Franco poses in an opinion piece from Wednesday's New York Times.
Seth Meyers, Ellen DeGeneres
This week, new Saturday Night Live cast member Sasheer Zamata took Girls fans on a tour of Brooklyn, and on the series itself, Marnie (Allison Williams) discovered a cringe-worthy — yet hilarious — video of herself on YouTube. The new Starz series Black Sails got an early premiere online, while Frozen got unnecessarily censored. Jennifer Lawrence flipped out on the red carpet at the SAG Awards when an interviewer dropped a major Homeland spoiler on her, and Ellen DeGeneres helped Seth Meyers practice his celebrity interviewing skills before he takes over Late Night next month.

Cougar Town's Jules found a new therapist with serious truth issues. Olivia's evil twin made a pass at her unrequited love on Fringe. Sesame Street forgot that Katy Perry is a scantily clad pop star. Joaquin Phoenix revealed that he is, in fact, an actor and not the subject of a documentary. And the cranky doc on House let it slip that he's actually a big old softie. Welcome to Top Moments: Mistaken Identity Edition.
