What's better than geeking out over EA Sports' new "FIFA 13?" Doing it with members of the European Premiere League's Tottenham Hotspurs, including their star winger Gareth Bale. The game manufacturer set up an event this week with the players to preview the game's newest features and get their heads scanned using new technology that incorporates 18 high-end cameras and 3D digital imaging. It's a system that makes the game's realism incredible.
We were able to grab Gareth for a few minutes to speak about the video game, the growing popularity of European football in the states and what he takes on the road to feel at home.
What do you think of your character in the latest version of the game?
Funny enough, I actually haven't played my newest character as of yet, but I am going to tonight. EA Sports keeps finding something new and better to add to the game and keep making it that much more realistic.

If you attended San Diego Comic-Con, you may have spotted the ultra hot Jaime Pressly milling about the convention center. No, the "My Name Is Earl" actress wasn’t dressed up like Wonder Woman (although we wouldn’t mind a two-time Playboy model prancing around in her underwear). Pressly was working with Butterfinger on their The Last Spokesman On Earth campaign as she sought out unique people to do for Butterfinger what Bart Simpson did for the candy bar in the '90s.
Aside from her participation in the contest, Ms. Pressly is also hard at work executive producing the upcoming film "Abby in the Summer" which will star Pressly alongside Robin Thicke (yeah, that Robin Thicke) and working on a "blue collar comedy" for TV. Amidst all the television, movie and Butterfinger talk, we got the former "Mortal Kombat: Conquest" star to give us her take on pre-gaming, sexting, bros before hoes and more.
Before heading over to London, a number of U.S. Olympic athletes descended on Times Square to meet fans and shamelessly promote their sports. Since they were right outside our offices, we couldn't pass up meeting a few of them and asking them inane questions. Luckily our buddy Tyler from MTV's "The Challenge" is an Olympics super-fan and was available to head out with a camera crew. In true Guy Code fashion, he convinces the women's beach volleyball team to shake their asses for the camera, asks the men's beach volleyball players how tough it is for them to get laid and even talks to a real beefeater. We still don't really understand what a beefeater is, but we imagine you'll be seeing a lot more of them in Olympics coverage.
To see all the interviews, check out the video below, and get psyched because USA's total world domination starts next week.

Once upon a time, Dolph Ziggler was known as Nicky in an all-male cheerleader faction called The Spirit Squad. It wasn't the coolest wrestling gimmick, but Ziggler found a way to stand out while duking it out with WWE legends Triple H and Shawn Michaels. Three years later, Nicky became Dolph Ziggler and began to slowly emerge as a top heel with his brash persona and his remarkable ability to look good in the ring while making whomever he's wrestling look better. With WWE "RAW"'s 1000th episode airing tonight and Ziggler perhaps at the top of his game, we sat down with the self-proclaimed show-off to talk about his feud with Chris Jericho, what he and Sterling Archer have in common and his code on farting.
Just in case you ever doubted that April Rose and Melanie Iglesias are the perfect women, we can now tell you without hesitation that they absolutely are. They like sports bars and wrestling, and it doesn't hurt that they're freakin' hot either. The two "Guy Code" castmembers met up with MTV News' Rya Backer for a dude-version of girls night and, thank Jesus, someone was there to get it all on video. You may want to take notes, because the girls drop a ton of hints about what they like in their guys: don't dress too well, feed Melanie some chicken nuggets, and...have thunder thighs like the Rock? Whatever; it doesn't even matter what they talked about, because all you really need to know is that this happened:
Watch the interview (and the kiss) below, and see more of April and Melanie on the Season 2 premiere of "Guy Code" tonight at 11/10c on MTV2.
The Guy Code Blog met "Guy Code" the show at their Season Two Launch Party, and we took the opportunity to ask the cast what they want to see more of on the blog (boobs, according to Chris Distefano). We also got the chance to get better acquainted with the wise and crazy bunch; Charlamagne Tha God ranted about farting, Jordan Carlos compared the show to a wayward youth minister and Melanie Iglesias told us about her creepy Twitter admirers (which probably account for half of her followers). There's no predicting what's going to come out their mouths next, which is why we're betting Season 2 is going to be crazier than ever. Watch the premiere tonight on MTV2 at 11/10c, and check out our interviews with the cast in the video below.

We like that Anderson Silva beat Chael Sonnen at UFC 148 on Saturday night for three main reasons. First, he's a great fighter and he deserved it. Second, someone needed to shut Sonnen up. Hard. And third, it means we've gotten to hear more from the brilliantly nutty Steven Seagal.
Seagal, the legendary martial artist and action movie star, has been training Silva for a couple years now, teaching Silva his "secret, nasty stuff" (his words, not ours). Even though Seagal has been the punch line of the UFC lately, he's clearly doing something right; Silva is the reigning middleweight champ, and he credits Seagal for his brutal front kick.
In this pre-fight interview with our Andreas Hale, Seagal predicts Silva's victory and disses Sonnen, saying that his trash talk is "an embarrassment to the human race (and) to any martial artist." Although the Silva-Sonnen rivalry was fun to watch, we have to agree that it's nice to see Sonnen eat his words. And it looks like we have Seagal, in part, to thank for that.

A vampire movie wouldn't really be anything without a hot chick flashing some skin, right? What would "True Blood" be without its fair share of boobs? Yeah, it's cool that Abe Lincoln is going to vanquish bloodsuckers in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," but green-eyed beauty Alex Lombard will surely take your attention away from the gruesome action. So, instead of talking to the fellas, we've opted to sit down with Ms. Lombard about her role as Gabrielle, the love interest of Henry Sturgess, a 900-year-old vampire played by Dominic Cooper. We chat it up with Alex about being buttnaked in a vampire's bathtub, whether she prefers President Lincoln or Vampire Hunter Lincoln and what she has coming up next.
Partier/rocker/motivational brony Andrew W.K. is a friend to MTV Clutch, and we SWEAR it's not just because we're trying to sidle up to his hot wife Cherie Lily:

That's just a perk of the job. You may know Lily as part of W.K.'s raucous live shows. If not, we're here to get you familiar. She puts out her own music, a mix of dance/workout bangers that she describes as houserobics: "It's a genre I created that fuses original dance with high-energy beats and inspiring lyrics...I want people to listen to my music and go nuts, on the treadmill or in the club."
And the sexy new video for her single "Dripping Wet" just
dripped dropped, and it features women in thongs, pasties and covered in body grease...pretty much exactly what you want in a music video. We got Cherie on the phone to talk about the video and her penchant for wearing '80s-style aerobics attire. Check out the interview, and feast your eyes on some Cherie Lily photos at the end.

Last time MTV Clutch hung with Andrew W.K., the self-professed party animal wreaked havoc in our offices. This time around, things are more mellow but no less strange, as he schooled on what it is to be a "brony."
What's that, you say? Clearly you haven't been watching Hub TV's "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic." This new reboot on the animated classic has become a phenomenon by captivating an unusual audience: dudes. These guys are referred to as "bronies" and, after our buddy Andrew announced that he would be speaking at the "My Little Pony" national convention in September, he's also become the fan base's undisputed hero.
To try to wrap our heads around the "brony" sensation, we caught up with the party- and pony-loving rockstar in an exclusive interview.
