From the mustiest clubs in the worst neighborhoods of LA to the vistas the Vans Warped Tour traverse every summer, Johnson has captured casual moments and manned battle stations in the most brutal of pits.

'Baby Driver': How Edgar Wright Staged the Crime Movie's Musical Action Scenes

Edgar Wright was, by his own account, "21 years old, living in North London, broke and on the dole – that's British for 'welfare'" in 1995 when he was struck by what he can only compare to a near-religious vision.

Psych: The Movie: Ralph Macchio will reprise role in holiday special

When Psych: The Movie was announced last month, the network and studio promised that the holiday special would feature some returning guest stars — and EW can exclusively reveal one of them: Ralph Macchio is set to reprise one of his two roles on the show.
In the video below, the Outsiders actor announced he will return as Nick Conforth, the police academy officer who trained Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) in season 5. Conforth will play an important role in Shawn and Gus’ investigation into the Thin White Duke (Zachary Levi), a mysterious villain who targets one of their friends.
“He’s actually a big catalyst to get our investigation going. He holds one of the key pieces of information,” creator Steve Franks, who directed the movie, tells EW. “He actually functioned perfectly within the framework of the story and that was kind of the key .”
“I should be slightly easier to locate than the pineapple,” Macchio says in the announcement video.
Franks also wanted Macchio to appear in the movie because he never got a chance to meet him when the actor guest-starred on the show since the writers’ room was in California and the show shot in Vancouver.

Breaking Big: Raucous Kentucky rockers Dan Luke & the Raid make good on their musical pedigree

Who’s topping the charts, going viral, and ruling our earbuds? Every week, EW introduces the freshest music talent you have to hear now. Below, get to know Dan Luke & the Raid, whose raucous brand of rock you need to hear.
Listen If You Like: The Beatles at their “Helter Skelter”-heaviest, early My Morning Jacket, Pavement
The Backstory: Dan Luke & the Raid frontman Dan Shultz, 21, grew up in a musical household outside of Bowling Green, Kentucky. His brothers Brad, 35, and Matt, 33, perform in the town’s best known — for now, if Shultz has his way — rock export, Cage the Elephant. “It was an interesting environment,” Shultz says with a laugh. “We were rambunctious.” More than a decade younger than Matt and Brad, Shultz was just 10 when they decamped to Europe to start their own career. And when another Shultz brother, Jeremy, left home shortly after that, Shultz suddenly found himself in quieter hallways. “There were times where it was lonely,” he admits. “My dad lived out in the country and there wasn’t a ton to do. I would sit with a guitar in my hand for hours and watch TV and learn the songs in commercials.”
