R.E.M.'s Stipe: We love each other, but it's over

Don't call it a breakup, call it a disbanding, musician Michael Stipe explained to CNN's Shanon Cook on the end of R.E.M. as we knew them.

When the iconic and influential group announced in September that they were "calling it a day as a band," the Internet seemed to go into mourning, and Stipe says the blogosphere erupted with theories.

"Everyone has their opinion on when R.E.M. should have, or might should have, broken up, but we don't even call it breaking up, we disbanded," Stipe says. "Between the three of us, we kind of arrived at it at the same time...there's no animosity, there's no weirdness...we love each other, and have huge respect for each other. We reached a point where it didn't feel like it made sense to carry on any further, and we happened to do that at a very high point in a 31-year career of highs and lows."

What's the verdict: 'Hunger Games' trailer

The trailer for "The Hunger Games" debuted on "Good Morning America" Monday, and the survey says impressed (also: Can.not.wait until March 23).

After debating about the casting - Jennifer Lawrence as 16-year-old heroine Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as her competitor/love interest Peeta and Liam Hemsworth as her other childhood friend/other love interest Gale -  and checking out a teaser trailer, we finally get to really see the casting in action.

If you haven't yet read Suzanne Collins' post-apocalyptic trilogy, this will help, and here's a brief summary: Katniss volunteers for the brutal, government-sponsored televised game that has kids 12 to 18 fight to the death in order to save her sister from having to "play," so to speak.

'Sesame Street' asks: Have you seen this man?

The producers of "Sesame Street" have looked high and low, and now they're turning to the Internet.

The show is searching for the original actor who played the character of Gordon 42 years ago. Roscoe Orman is best known as playing that role since the show's sixth season. Two other actors played Gordon in the early years, but this particular unknown man only played Gordon in the landmark children's series' unaired pilot.

"Sesame Street" has posted everything they know, including a clip of the unknown gentleman in the pilot. Unfortunately, even some of his fellow actors from that pilot, such as Big Bird actor Carroll Spinney, don't recall who he is.
