EW's Must List: Crucial for 2005
June 16, 2005

Entertainment Weekly is cranking up the summer heat with its yearly Must List, and only "Extra" takes you from cover to cover with everything and everyone you just can't miss all year long.

"It's really kind of the whole game of what's going on in entertainment right now," EW's Dave Karger revealed. "We really pull out all the stops."

And what better way to kick off some of the movie musts than with EW's super cover man, "Superman's" Brandon Routh and his Lois Lane, Kate Bosworth.

"ėSuperman' is on the cover of our Must List issue because it is arguably one of the most anticipated movies of next summer," Karger explained.

But the movie musts don't stop there. Only "Extra" was invited behind the scenes for Jessica Alba's sexy EW photo shoot, celebrating her role as the Invisible Woman in "Fantastic Four." And you can bet, this was a must see for the costumes alone.

"I'm wearing this silk see-through thingy and then they covered me in Vaseline and five guys cover me in plaster," Alba revealed.

And from the big screen to the small screen, EW's Henry Goldblatt told us that no list is complete without some "Desperate Housewives." "We put one of our favorite ėHousewives' on the list: Felicity Huffman," he revealed.

EW also spotlights "House" star Hugh Laurie, who made it as the cure for the common medical drama.

And as Karger put it, "How could we do a must list issue and not include Coldplay? They are the hottest band of the moment."

Who else made the can't-miss cut? Find the answer in the red-hot Entertainment Weekly Must List, on newsstands now.
