Interviewing one of this summer's biggest stars, like, for instance, Taylor Kitsch, can be difficult. Asking the important questions while he's shooting hockey pucks at you is an entirely different story.

The star of "John Carter" and "Battleship" took aim at MTV News' Josh Horowitz while also taking your questions as a part of "MTV First: John Carter." Though he's known for his work on the football field in "Friday Night Lights," Kitsch originally hails from the Great White North, so hockey is in his blood.

That isn't a problem until you're the one playing goalie. During their interview, Horowitz strapped himself in and faced down Kitsch for a no-holds-barred round of movie questions and hockey.

But before all that, Kitsch will premiere a never-before-seen clip from "John Carter" on MTV. You'll have to tune in Thursday, March 1, at 7:56 p.m. ET to see the brand-new footage. Immediately afterward, on, Kitsch will answer fan-submitted questions while shooting hockey pucks at his interviewer. It should be a good time.

It's going to be an epic showdown on the ice, and it's all going to take place on MTV and

In "John Carter," Kitsch plays a Confederate officer transported to Barsoom, or Mars, as it's more commonly referred to by humans. There, Carter finds himself embroiled in an epic war between two races for the fate of the planet.

The film will be released March 9 in digital 3-D and IMAX 3-D.

Catch Taylor Kitsch Thursday, March 1, on MTV at 7:56 p.m. ET, when he'll debut an exclusive, never-before-seen clip from "John Carter." Then head over to for our 30-minute chat with Rudd and Aniston.

<P>"Glee" paid tribute to Michael Jackson during Tuesday night's episode and, shockingly, kept the story moving along in the midst of several MJ-inspired musical numbers. Kurt, Rachel and Quinn all received great news about college, Rachel finally accepted Finn's proposal and evil Sebastian's plot to harm Kurt with a doctored slushee backfired when Blaine took the hit for his boyfriend. </p><div class="player-placeholder right" id="" width="240" height="211"></div><p> Yet the forced "all Michael, all the time" song selection led to some head-scratching scenes including Kurt, Rachel and Finn serenading an injured Blaine with Jackson's love song to a rat, "Ben," and two different music-video re-enactments only appealed to Jackson superfans. The rest of us can enjoy my latest "Glee-cap"! Hit play on the embedded video and sing along with these lyrics. "Glee," "Glee" 's really hit the skids<br> MJ would have loved all the singing kids Time for a tribute<br> Veiled as a dispute<br> They all imitate<br> Michael's vocal takes Wish they didn't try<br> To simply ape his sigh<br> I guess "Glee" got paid<br> In tickets to <a href="">Cirque du Soleil</a> It's bad! It's bad! Come on! Oh, pointless themed episodes<br> Make me push fast-forward on my TiVo Artie's "Scream" remake<br> Complete with head shakes<br> Tired of getting dissed<br> Mike Chang's now his sis? Warblers fight for songs<br> No prob doing wrong<br> They're all blindly cruel<br> Since Blaine left their school Quinn sang goodbye to every ex<br> Have a seat, this'll take awhile<br> (She's had lots of sex)<br> Quinn got into Yale<br> And I'm all, "How?" <br> Then got distracted by Damian's hyper eyebrows They're bad! They're bad! Relax them! <br> If you don't, I will come wax them! Slutpig tried to slushee Kurt<br> But Blaine got in the way<br> Left him needing surgery<br> How dare you hurt my gay! <br> Despite Blaine's cute eye patch<br> Kurt is hungry for revenge<br> But that's a different better show on ABC, my friend "Glee," drop the shtick, you're better than this<br> Forcing Jackson songs is just as bad as this forced kiss<br> Just because you can afford it doesn't mean it has worth<br> Unless you're trying to give me nightmares<br> In that case, it worked No more bells and whistles, please<br> Clever songs are all you need<br> I get it, Ryan Murphy, Blaine had to bleed<br> So <a href="/news/articles/1676997/darren-crisis-how-to-succeed-in-business.jhtml">Darren could star in "How to Succeed"</a> But making Kurt and Finchel sing "Ben" to Blaine<br> Is the very definition of insane<br> I hope next week they get it right<br> With no stupid guests hogging "Glee" 's spotlight [<i>Cue clip of next week's episode starring Ricky Martin</i>] Whoops! <i>What did you think of this week's "Glee"?
