I'm sure I wasn't the only one who was shocked to see Matt McGorry from Orange Is The New Black join the cast of How To Get Away With Murder. I'm also sure I wasn't the only who was shocked to see that his character was not sweet like Bennett, but a jerk like Pornstache. Of course he isn't exactly like Pornstache. He's much more clean cut, educated, but obsessed with sex and driven to prove his superiority. Basically Matt's character, Asher Millstone is a bro and we decided to count all 16 ways how he shows this. Enjoy!
1. He used this sentence with a straight face.
2. He has this move.
3. He uses the lamest names to refer to women.
4. He's not afraid to let everyone know he's a creep.
5. He makes it rain...on himself...by himself.
6. He tries to start a fight but loses before it even started.
7. He talks like he wants to live in a movie. We bet his room is covered with Scarface, Fight Club, and James Bond movie posters.
8. He usually tries to put the attention back on himself.
9. The one time he is useful, is thanks to his daddy.
10. He keeps it classy by gossiping about girls.
11. Of course he would use "big dog" in a sentence.
12. Because gay guys have it so easy and get to have sex all the time, amiright?
13. He makes this awful joke.
14. He's an adult, but he acts like he can't say penis.
15. When he finally gets his paws on that trophy he didn't stop parading it for a second!
16. Oh Asher, we know you have a sensitive side. You should show it more often.

The Rolling Stones have settled a multi-million dollar insurance claim over the shows they cancelled in the aftermath of the death of Sir Mick Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott. The band became embroiled in a legal dispute with their insurance company when underwriters refused to pay out the $12 million (£7.5 million) claim for loss of earnings over the gigs in Australia and New Zealand that were called off following the fashion designer's suicide in March (14).
The stand-off triggered a lawsuit from the band and a court showdown in the U.S. as insurers probed the details of the case, with court documents revealing Jagger had been diagnosed with a stress disorder after his partner's death.
It has now emerged the dispute has been settled, and a spokesman for Jagger has issued a statement insisting the veteran rocker was devastated by the release of his medical information.
The representative tells Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper, "We are deeply upset that confidential medical and other private information about members of the band and their immediate family and loved ones has entered the public domain as a result of a U.S. court filing initiated by insurers four weeks ago. This was done without the knowledge of the band or reference to their legal representatives.
"This has only been discovered and reported in the press in the last week, by which time we are pleased to say the insurers and the Rolling Stones had, in fact, settled the insurance claim. No further comment will be made about this matter."
The band is currently on tour in Australia, playing the rescheduled shows Down Under.
Garth Brooks is still mourning the gigs he cancelled at Ireland's Croke Park stadium earlier this year (14) after a sensational showdown with locals. The country singer scrapped all of his five sold-out concerts at the venue near Dublin in July (14) following a dispute with locals and politicians.
Brooks choked back tears as he spoke to Britain's Daily Telegraph about the cancellations, admitting he is still hurting about not playing the venue and disappointing his fans, even four months later.
He says, "Hey man, I'm not trying to be dramatic, my wife would sit here and tell you, 'I've never seen him ache like that for anything other than loss of family.' I mourned that, and I still am, to tell the truth. Hurts like hell... (Ireland) was always the place where you couldn't start a song, two words and its gone, they're taking over. That's the way music should be. When you hear them singing your stuff in Croke Park, it's like heaven."
In October (14), a representative for Brooks dismissed reports he would return to Ireland in 2015.
Legendary Sugarhill Gang rapper Big Bank Hank has lost his battle with cancer at the age of 57. The hip-hop veteran died in his native New York in the early hours of Tuesday (11Nov14).
Born Henry Jackson, the star began his music career managing local rap group the Cold Crush Brothers in the mid-1970s, until his own talent was spotted by record executive Sylvia Robinson.
She paired him up with Michael 'Wonder Mike' Wright and Guy 'Master Gee' O'Brien to form the Sugarhill Gang, and signed them to her newly-established namesake label, Sugar Hill Records.
The trio became the first rap act to score a big hit with the 1979 classic Rapper's Delight, catapulting them to fame.
They went on score other hits with singles including Apache, Eighth Wonder and Showdown and released their last studio album in 1999, with Jump on It!.
His surviving bandmates Wonder Mike and Master Gee have since paid tribute to the rap icon, telling TMZ.com, "So sad to hear of our brother's passing. Rest in peace Big Bank."
British pop star Brian Harvey went to Downing Street on Monday (20Oct14) to demand a meeting with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron outside the gates of his London residence. The former East 17 singer was pictured in a bizarre showdown with a police officer at the gated entrance to the iconic road, where the politician officially lives and works.
According to reports, Harvey clutched a ring binder folder in his hand and ranted to the officer, claiming he had evidence that the Government had stolen money from him and he wanted to speak to Cameron about the matter.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirms there was a "minor disturbance outside the gates. Officers spoke to a man there - there were no arrests."
Aerosmith star Joe Perry is preparing himself for a showdown with band frontman Steven Tyler over details featured in his upcoming autobiography. The guitarist has spent the last 18 months writing memoir Rocks: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith with David Ritz, and he admits Tyler won't be happy with some of the things he reads.
Perry tells Billboard.com that the singer is like "the brother I never had" - and, like many siblings, they have a love-hate relationship.
Confessing that many of the things that Tyler wrote about him in his 2011 memoir, Does The Noise in My Head Bother You? "were way off base," Perry adds, "He never fails to amaze me with some of the stuff that comes out of his mouth."
He doesn't expect Tyler to pat him on the back and wish him success when he reads the book: "I think there's going to be stuff he's going to take exception to."
Katy Perry showed off her skills as a sports pundit in Oxford, Mississippi on Saturday morning (04Oct14) when she joined ESPN's College Game Day crew to pick the day's football match-ups.
The Dark Horse singer showed up during the weekly sports show on the campus of the University of Mississippi and brought the TV experts a tray of hotty toddies - local fans' drink of choice before big games - after letting fans know she was there via Twitter, and writing, "Oxford Mississippi I'm here with rebel red hair today! Are you ready?! @CollegeGameDay #GetUp4GameDay (sic)." Perry explained she had been trying to get to an Ole Miss Rebels game for "about 10 years" because her manager and mentor went to university there. She said, "It's my first college football game."
During her appearance, Perry, wearing a fluffy pink and black football jersey, revealed she has been having "some conversations" about performing at professional football's Super Bowl next year (15), adding, "I would be honored, of course, but I have let them know that I am not the type of girl that would pay to play the Super Bowl." National Football League officials have let it be known that they might charge acts to perform at the half-time show from 2015 after realizing how successful artists have become after hitting the biggest sporting stage in America in recent years.
Meanwhile, Perry picked wins for Mississippi State, Tennessee, Auburn, Rutgers, Ohio State, Notre Dame and made Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Trevor Knight's day by admitting she had a crush on him, stating, "Trevor Knight, call me!" She later held up a heart-shaped photo of the Sooners star and said, "I love you Trevor Knight, call me."
Perry was a big hit among local fans when she picked Ole Miss to beat favourites Alabama, yelling, "Are you ready", before leading a university chant. Unfortunately she was the only pundit on the panel picking the home team for the win. The singer ended her appearance by hurling corn dogs at the camera and grabbing expert Lee Corso's Alabama elephant mascot head and tossing it aside as Rebels fans cheered her on. She is not the first music star to join the College Game Day panel this season - country singer Kenny Chesney was a guest on the show at the end of September (14). Perry proved to be a good picker - Ole Miss did beat Alabama and there were also wins for Auburn, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Rutgers, but her crush, Knight, and his Oklahoma team lost at home to Texas Christian University.
The current stars of Ub40 have officially launched legal action against former frontman Ali Campbell over the reggae group's name. The band threatened to sue earlier this year (14) after the singer announced plans to re-team with fellow former UB40 stars Mickey Virtue and Astro for a number of 2014 concert dates.
They have now followed through with their promise by serving the trio with writs ahead of a court showdown. A hearing date has been set for November (14) and members of the current line-up, including Campbell's brothers Robin and Duncan, have vowed to give evidence against the star in the fight for the band name.
Robin Campbell tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "Ali is selling tickets as UB40 when he isn't. He's taken our name because he can't sell tickets on his own. They are perfectly entitled to play any UB40 tracks they like. What they are not entitled to do is to pretend they are UB40. Fans are being hoodwinked... Earlier this year Ali appeared on Australian TV, claiming to have re-formed and reunited UB40. It's not true. The band never split up and never parted. We just carried on doing what we had always been doing after he left. We will give evidence against Ali if necessary. I don't feel anything for my brother any more after the vitriol he has heaped on me over the last six years."
Ali Campbell quit the band in 2008 along with Virtue, while Astro exited last year (13).
Andrew Garfield is convinced his second superhero film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 flopped with fans because studio executives changed the story too much.
The British actor claims he "genuinely loved" the original script for the sequel and was shocked by critics' harsh reviews and the public's response towards the film following its release earlier this year (14). Garfield is adamant interference by studio bosses was to blame as they altered the course of the film by cutting out too much material.
He tells The Daily Beast, "I think what happened was, through the pre-production, production, and post-production, when you have something that works as a whole, and then you start removing portions of it - because there was even more of it than was in the final cut, and everything was related - once you start removing things and saying, 'No, that doesn't work', then the thread is broken, and it's hard to go with the flow of the story. "Certain people at the studio had problems with certain parts of it, and ultimately the studio is the final say in those movies because they're the tent-poles, so you have to answer to those people."
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 fell flat with critics and fans, but proved a hit at the international box office by bringing in more than $708 million (£416 million) worldwide.
Live Aid hero Midge Ure will perform Ultravox's hit Vienna with a full orchestra as part of an upcoming concert to launch this year's (14) Ryder Cup golf tournament. The singer, who is currently on tour with Howard Jones and the Thompson Twins' Tom Bailey in America, will perform the classic track with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra at Glasgow's SSE Hydro on 24 September (14).
He won't be the only Scot on the bill - Texas, Amy Macdonald and Eddi Reader will perform, while Chic's Nile Rodgers will hit the stage with the orchestra for classical versions of his Daft Punk collaboration Get Lucky, as well as Chic tunes Good Times and Le Freak.
The concert will help launch the Ryder Cup's Europe versus America clash at Gleneagles in Perthshire.
