1. Actor Colin Farrell defended his gay brother Eamonn by writing a lovely open letter to his fellow Irishmen. In the letter, he asked that they vote to legalize same-sex marriage in Ireland (the country currently allows civil partnerships). "How often do we get to make history in our lives?" Farrell writes. "Not just personal history. Familial. Social. Communal. Global. The world will be watching. We will lead by example. Let's lead toward light." [Ireland's Sunday World]

2. Shonda Rhimes is "fierce," according to the HRC. So, she's being honored with an Ally for Equality award at the organization's L.A. gala next year. Does that mean more sexy gay scenes in How to Get Away With Murder? [Popwatch]

3. The cast and crew behind American Horror Story: Freak Show is now experiencing real fear. It seems a script page detailing how Pepper made it from Briarcliff to the freak show has been stolen and is now being sold to other media outlets. [A.V. Club]

4. Benedict Cumberbatch offered some words to female fans who might be disappointed at his recent engagement during this morning's Live! With Kelly and Michael, saying "I'm very happy. I'm a very happy man. I have a great population of fans as well -- they're smart, they'll get around to the idea. ... Your ovaries do still have use, let me tell you!" [THR]

5. With Bob's Burgers airing in a new 9:30 p.m. timeslot, Fox's comedy block managed to achieve admirable ratings against NBC's Sunday Night Football. All riiiiiiight! [Variety]

6. Plagued by a yearly march from Neo-Nazis, small German town Wunsiedel decided to fight back in the sassiest of ways. Creating the Nazis Against Nazis campaign, the town sought to undermine the extremists by donating to an anti-Neo-Nazi organization based on how far the Neo Nazis marched, thus turning their own demonstration against them. They also placed signs along the march route sarcastically encouraging the Neo-Nazis to keep marching, so as to raise more money against themselves. Watch below:
