Zachary

I would like to build a house with Oprah who is not necessarily, like, an actor first, but she’s actually an amazing actor.  She’s got a new movie coming out as well. And I’d like to be in a movie with Meryl Streep because, right, like, right? I’m sticking by it.”

Check out as he gives his best “Pittsburghese” accent and reveals what qualities he shares with Spock, his spirit animal, the #1 item on his bucket list, and whether his “killer eyebrows” are a blessing or a curse, AFTER THE JUMP...

1NewsIcon German Chancellor Angela Merkel's avoiding some touchy gay subjects lest she complicate her reelection bid, and it's upsetting some within her party, the Christian Democratic Union. "The CDU is having to appeal to a broader base, to adapt to a changed reality in society, new family structures and a bigger role for women," said Bonn University political science professor Frank Decker. "A traditional conservative, Christian party must find answers, it must debate these things. But Merkel is refusing to allow this debate to happen, and that breeds resentment."

1NewsIcon Conservative New York Times columnist Ross Douthat discusses America's falling birthrates and its alleged relationship to gay marrige acceptance: "..There’s been a broader cultural shift away from a child-centric understanding of romance and marriage. In 1990, 65 percent of Americans told Pew that children were 'very important' to a successful marriage; in 2007, just before the current baby bust, only 41 percent agreed. (That trend goes a long way toward explaining why gay marriage, which formally severs wedlock from sex differences and procreation, has gone from a nonstarter to a no-brainer for so many people.)"

1NewsIcon Meanwhile, when it comes to pursuing marriage equality in Indiana, timing matters: "Some supporters of the ban argue now is the time to push the measure through. But there are more variables than usual for lawmakers to consider heading into 2013. They will have to write their next biennial budget, get acclimated to a new governor for the first time in eight years and measure the possibility that the U.S. Supreme Court will take up the issue and make the whole argument moot."
