MTV Announces Cast Of New 'Scream' Pilot



If you’re typically the type to choose a Halloween costume months in advance, you might want to wait a liiiiittle bit longer before nailing down an ensemble this year.

MTV’s much-anticipated adaptation of the horror film franchise “Scream” has officially found its pilot’s stars, according to a press release, and the talent might fittingly give you shivers. John Karna of “The Neighbors” and Carlson Young of “The Kroll Show,” shown above, will have key roles in the production, along with Willa Fitzgerald of “Royal Pains,” Amy Forsyth of “Reign” and Amadeus Serafini of “Smoke.” The show will be directed by Jamie Travis, who’s previously worked on “Faking It,” and executive produced by Jill Blotevogel and Harvey and Bob Weinstein under the Dimension TV production umbrella.

“We are excited to be in business with the formidable Weinstein brothers,” said Susanne Daniels, President of Programming for MTV. “‘Scream’ is an iconic franchise, and MTV is the perfect network to bring this consistently surprising film to life on television.”

The very first “Scream” flick, which was released in 1996, followed a killer who took down a town’s teens to taunt one particular high school student, Sidney Prescott. MTV’s pilot, on the other hand, will include a newly popular beauty, played by Fitzgerald; a pastor’s daughter and aspiring filmmaker, played by Forsyth; a tech wizard with a penchant for pop culture, played by Karna; a bubbly queen bee, played by Young and a new kid with a dark side, played by Serafini.

Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Eggs(5): Trivia, References, Callbacks, Cameos and More





Guardians of the Galaxy might be Marvel’s most elaborate film to date when it comes to easter eggs. I’ve watched the film twice now and have noticed a ton of inside jokes, references to characters from the comic books, 1980′s callbacks and more.I attempted to compile the most complete listing of Guardians of the Galaxy easter eggs, including (possible spoilers teased in the following):

Disclosure performs on Jimmy Kimmel + talks about new album.

Just yesterday, UK sensation Disclosure landed on late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel’s live stage in the middle of Hollywood to perform their certified platinum hit, “Latch.” The recognized tune featured a live performance from vocalist Sam Smith, a British singer still hot from the release of his own celebrated album, In the Lonely Hour. The powerhouse trio paid homage to the track that, to many, placed both acts on the pop music map and was the first fuel to the fire that blasted them forward in their careers.

Mischa Barton Regrets Doing "The O.C."

toofab_the_OC_cast_Then_Now_0012_Layer_40_gallery_main

Mischa Barton is famous for playing Marissa Cooper on "The O.C.," but now, she regrets taking the role.

In a new interview with Metro U.K., the actress reveals that she "probably wouldn't" star in the hit Fox drama if she could do it all over again.

"It's something I came so close to not doing. I had a really great thing with film. People say be grateful for what you have but it certainly was not the kind of thing I was expecting it to be," she says. "I've kind of seen it all."

During her time on the show, Mischa worked and played hard and said she was "depressed and overworked." The young star was arrested for driving under the influence and marijuana possession in 2007.

"It's tough. It's really tough when you are young in this business," she explains, adding, "It's just one of those things when you are growing under a microscope and changing and that evolution is human. That humanity aspect means flaws - which people don't want to see."

In 2009, the actress was admitted into a psych ward under an involuntary hold after she threatened to take her own life.

When asked if she cared about her reputation, Barton says, "Clearly not!"

"That would really do your head in if you were thinking like that," the 28-year-old reveals. "I just like to be seen for the hard-working actress that I am and not for a bunch of extraneous press. In general people are super quick to harbor on the gossipy stuff and less on how much work goes into it."

So, what advice does she have for today's starlets? "Keep your private life private to the greatest extent that you can," she says. "People have this insatiable appetite for it—so how far can you go with that?"

Swedish teen witch film teaser of YA book "Cirkeln" (The Circle) makes debut



You may have expected there to be a wave of young adult oriented fantasy film to arise in Sweden following the runaway international success of Let The Right One In but, surprisingly, there was not. Adaptations of the original author's other novels stalled out and very little popped up in terms of original material or adaptations of other books. But now there's one worth taking a look at with Levan Akin's adaptation of Mats Standberg and Sara Bergmark Elfgren's Cerkeln (The Circle).

The first in a series of novels known as the Engelsfors books - the first two are available in English translations with the third currently available only in Swedish - Cirkeln revolves around a group of teen girls who discover they are witches and must stand together against an otherworldly threat. The most original premise? Not at all but it's all about character and personality with these things and the novels have proven hugely popular around the globe while the freshly released teaser shows off some very slick work from Akin. Take a look below and if you've read the books let us know what we should be

Ricky Gervais to Produce David Brent Movie with BBC


Ricky Gervais is to produce a feature film centering on David Brent, the character he played in the original BBC version of TV comedy series “The Office.”

The movie, “Life on the Road,” will follow Brent’s progress in the 15 years since leaving the company at the center of the TV show. Brent will be seen working as a travelling salesman in order to fund a U.K. concert tour as he pursues his dream of becoming a rock star, the BBC reported Tuesday.

The film, which the BBC is developing, will take the form of a mockumentary. Brent believes it to be a rockumentary, in the style of Martin Scorsese’s Rolling Stones docu “Shine a Light,” but it turns out the crew are shooting a “Where are they now?” documentary, tracking down the original characters from “The Office.”

The pic is set to go into production next year.

Jennifer Garner is NOT pregnant, says rep



Sure, the world would love to see another adorable child added to Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's beautiful brood, but that won't be happening anytime soon.

The actress's rep tells PEOPLE the reports that she and Affleck, 41, are expecting their fourth child are simply "not true."

Recent photos of Garner, 42, sporting loose-fitting tops while out and about in L.A., promoted the speculation.

The couple are parents to children Violet, 8½, Seraphina, 5, and Samuel, 2.

Back in 2013, Affleck told reporters that, "[Another kid is] not going to happen," adding: "We're in a really good place. Three is good! That's enough!"

The Latina Katy Perry, On the Verge: Becky G enjoys 'Shower' of success



Look at me!: Becky G caught the performing bug as many artists do — at a young age, standing on the kitchen table, putting on a show. Growing up in a large extended family in Inglewood, Calif., "my only way of getting my uncles' attention or aunts' attention or whoever's attention was by dancing and singing around the house," she says. "It was just very natural to want to entertain people, be extra loud and have lots of personality."

Singing in the shower: The Mexican-American singer and rapper (full name Rebbeca Gomez) no longer needs to fight for the spotlight, thanks to infectious single Shower, now No. 16 on USA TODAY's top 40 airplay chart. The Dr. Luke-produced earworm was dubbed the Call Me Maybe of this summer by BuzzFeed, a comparison that Gomez, 17, welcomes. "It's really cool, it's a great song," she says. "My fans that knew me before get to see me grow up as an artist, because all my other songs are about my family and my story, and now, this is Becky growing up, this is Becky in love. And for the people who are just catching on, it's a great introduction to Becky and my (debut) album," expected out this fall.

Katherine Heigl: Being a Working Mom Made Me "Angry and Frustrated"

1407337828_katherine-heigl-article

Katherine Heigl faced an ugly truth when she became a mother in 2009. A series regular on Grey's Anatomy at the time, the actress found it difficult to maintain any kind of work-life balance, and soon grew resentful of her hectic schedule.

"I would come home angry and frustrated that I'd missed everything with my kid that day," Heigl, 35, told Good Housekeeping of being a working mom after she and husband Josh Kelley adopted daughter Naleigh, now 5. "I didn't get to wake her up from her nap, or do bath time or bedtime. I'd have to sneak into her room and kiss her when she was sleeping, hoping not to wake her up."

Boy rewriting history much?  The timeline was she went on maternity leave but refused to come back after (remember Grey's was starting on the major Alex/Izzie storyline when they had to change course and abruptly end it).  That's when Shonda and Co. negotiated the release of her contract.  She turned around and gave us that awful Josh Duhamel movie and then made that awful Stephanie Plum movie.

Uh huh, you left because of your kid - not.  You were angry that Grey's was holding you back from movie stardom.  I really wish she would shut up because in order to show Hollywood you are a team player you should just stop doing this kind of press!  It's coming out all wrong.

Musical prophet Kanye West goes on yet another rant, disses Britney Spears

8892323

Kanye West swears under oath, "I'm the smartest celebrity you've ever f***ing dealt with. I'm not Britney Spears."

We got hold of a transcript of Kanye's deposition in the case where he's accused of beating a photog and smashing his camera.

Kanye explains to Nate Goldberg, the photog's lawyer, "I'm in the business of trying to make dope s**t for the world. You're in the business of representing scums and trying to make as much money as long as there's this lapse in the law."

Goldberg grills Kanye about his song, "Flashing Lights," -- a rant against the paparazzi. Goldberg quotes from the song, "Till I get flashed by the paparazzi, damn, these ni**as got me."

At that point Kanye interrupts, "You have to ask for a hall pass. You can't just say the 'n' word around me." adding, "It offends me because you're a white person saying 'ni**a.'"

Kanye says there's a parallel between blacks fighting for civil rights in the '60s and celebs fighting for theirs today: "I mean in the '60s people used to hold up 'Die N****r' signs when my parents were in the sit-ins also." Goldberg asks if he equates the struggle of blacks in the past with celebrities today and Kanye says, "Yes, 100 ... I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities." (this ignorant child smh)

Kanye goes on, "We, as group of minorities here in L.A., as celebrities have to ban together to influence guys like this -- guys trying to take the picture, guys trying to get the big win, guys trying to get the check."

The depo is riddled with Kanye's sarcasm. When Goldberg asks where he lives, Kanye replies, "Earth." (bye)

Modeling Peter 2: Electric Boogaloo

Shortlist's interview with Peter Capaldi



The ‘all-swearing eye’ is about to bring us a very different Doctor Who. Peter Capaldi chats fanboys and fanfare with ShortList's Andrew Lowry.

He may not bestride the Hollywood hills (not yet, anyway), but over the past 30 years, Peter Capaldi has steadily become one of Britain’s best-loved actors. The 56-year-old has done everything from play a transvestite on Prime Suspect to a stuffy academic on Peep Show to a Songs Of Praise presenter on The Vicar Of Dibley. Nine years ago, however, he wowed the nation – and won the hearts of swearing fans – with the debut of his famously abrasive spin doctor Malcolm Tucker in Armando Iannucci’s masterpiece The Thick Of It. He’s the definition of the 20-year ‘overnight success.’

Now, though, not content with redefining insults – and annoying Alastair Campbell into the bargain – he’s been awarded one of British TV’s most cherished berths: the leading role on global juggernaut Doctor Who. As he took time out from shooting the series, ShortList sat down with the man to hear about about hanging from wires, being a geek and his trip to the Oscars...

Zayn Malik shaves his stubble and looks just dreamy

Seriously, that face.

We were always a fan of Zayn Malik's stubble, but then the below picture of Zayn in New York came into our lives and reminded us that we're mainly just a massive fan of his face.

And really, why was it ever covered up with hair in the first place? It should be left clean and smooth and free to be pictured in all its full glory. In our opinion.

After treating us to endless beardy selfies, Zayn has shaved off the facial fuzz and toned-down the quiff, going for a generally 'just got out of bed but still looking amazing' look.

Teen Mom Catelynn Lowell is Pregnant (again) !





Congratulations are officially in order! Almost three months after Us Weekly broke the news that Teen Mom star Catelynn Lowell was expecting baby no. 2 with longtime boyfriend Tyler Baltierra, the reality star took to Instagram on Wednesday, Aug. 6 to confirm the news.

#it'sofficial #4months @tylerbaltierramtv,” she captioned a black and white shot, cradling her growing baby bump.

Lowell, 21, first appeared on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant in 2009, where she gave birth to daughter Carly, now 5, and ultimately decided to give her little one up for adoption.

Lowell and Baltierra still keep in contact with the family who adopted Carly and documented the emotional process on Teen Mom.

In May, Lowell’s mother April Stotts exclusively confirmed to Us that her daughter was pregnant with her second child.

"She was crying when she knew for sure and so I was like, 'Are you happy? Are you upset?' And she was like I’m happy!,'" Stotts told Us at the time. “She’s keeping the baby.”

Lowell and Baltierra were engaged, but after appearing on season 3 of VH1’s Couple’s Therapy, the pair decided to call the engagement off.

GLEE adds 5 new sophomores (including Gay Football Stud and Twin Cheerios) to final season



The repopulation of McKinley High has begun!

Glee is set to introduce at least five new characters — all of them McKinley sophomores — in its sixth and final season, TVLine has learned exclusively. The recurring newbies include:

RODERICK | Chubby and shy with a voice like Otis Redding, his looks don’t match with his talent. Described as, “a true goober.” He’s the show’s new underdog.

SPENCER | He’s the new resident “football stud” who just so happens to possess an incredible voice. He’s also gay. But, per the casting notice, “he’s post-Glee gay — no one messes with him about his sexuality because he will kick their asses if they do.”

JANE | Righteous, ambitious and unconventionally pretty, she’s funny because she doesn’t have much of a sense of humor. She wanted to be a Warbler but tradition kept her from joining so she jumps ship to the New Directions.

MASON AND MADISON | Male and female twin Cheerios. They’re super-positive and extremely weird. Mason gives off a gay vibe (spoiler alert: he’s not).

Back in June, series co-creator Ryan Murphy told TVLine that the show will shift back to its original conceit in Season 6 — and these five roles appear to back that up.

“We’re working on the last season now, and it really feels like it’s getting back to its roots, which I love,” he shared. “I’m sort of reinvigorated about it. It’s getting back to what I was initially interested in with the show, which was arts in school. The last season is really about the importance of arts education in our high schools… I think people will like it.”

Murphy’s quotes — as well as fellow EP Brad Falchuk’s assertion to TVLine that “there will be a lot going on in Lima” in Season 6 — all but confirmed speculation that much of the action will once again take place at McKinley.

Glee is set to return to Fox’s schedule at midseason.

Ahmed Angel Is Still The Most Beautiful Man Alive

It’s been a little over a year since we first caught up with Ahmed Angel, the Iraq-born Belarusian model who took the internet by storm. His amazing collection of portraits captured the eye of the Internet, and then his sweet nature and positivity won them over. One of the captions on his photos, “he is planet” has become a catchphrase for his fans, who post tributes on his Facebook page.

I caught up with him over Facebook chat to see how he’s been handling his notoriety.
Fame like salty water: drinking increases thirst,” Ahmed wisely mused. “With the fame there are a lot of problems, but I know myself very well, and I trust God. I dealt with the fame wisely and intelligently.”

He is still in school studying medicine, and he plans on continuing despite his large internet following. “I have a lot of imaginations and plans about my future, but that depends on my God and his judgement and his decision,” says Ahmed. “I plan and I’m always thinking about science and scientific inventions. I aspire to get a Nobel Prize for Science. Young people of my age and everyone is trying to get the artistic awards and fame in an improper manner. I’m trying to be immortal in history with scientific discoveries useful to humanity.”

Lil Kim Disses Nicki Minaj Again: Listen To ‘Identity Theft’


Lil Kim’s crusade against Nicki Minaj continues. After releasing that remix to the “Flawless Remix,” (and promptly being clowned on Twitter), the Queen Bee is back with yet another stab at Nicki Minaj.

It features Lil Kim’s driver’s license, with her real address and information, but in the place where her picture should be, there is Nicki, in a green wig, lips pouted mischievously.

Lee Pace To Star in Sci-Fi Thriller 'Prisoner Of War'



Lee Pace is currently on our screens as the vengeful, face-painted fundamentalist Ronan The Accuser in Guardians Of The Galaxy. But for Prisoner Of War, he’ll have to face off against aliens as a human warrior instead.

Pace has been cast to replace Chronicle’s Alex Russell in the film, which sees him as an American soldier alongside a French foreign aid worker (Skyfall’s Bérénice Marlohe) who are sent to Africa. It sounds more like a crusading charity movie, but then you factor in that humanity is in the middle of a last stand against a devastating alien invasion. And you’ve got to figure that given the title, it’s not going to go well for either.

Joe Miale, who has plied his trade on music videos, game tie-ins, straight-to-DVD efforts and shorts, is making the jump to feature films with this one, writing the script with Rowan Athale. Pace will next show up in The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies (due December 12) as Elf King Thranduil and is also part of Stephen Frears’ as-yet-untitled Lance Armstrong film, which is now racing through post-production. Marlohe, meanwhile, has a role in Terrence Malick’s untitled 2015 film and worked on rom-com 5 To 7 alongside Glenn Close and Frank Langella

Hispanics net few roles in major Hollywood movies




Hollywood has been on a five-year siesta when it comes to casting more Hispanic actors and actresses in major films, a new study found.

Overall, Hispanic actors accounted for only 4.9% of speaking roles in the top 100 grossing movies of 2013, the survey by the University of Southern California's Annenberg school said.

That's the same level recorded in 2008, even though the country's Hispanic population has surged in recent years.

Latinas, meanwhile, are more likely than women of any other ethnicity to appear partially or totally naked on the silver screen.

'India gang rape' fashion shoot showing model being harassed on board bus sparks outrage

A photo shoot apparently inspired by the gang rape and murder of a Delhi student has sparked outrage in India.

Images from the shoot, taken by Mumbai photographer Raj Shetye, show models in glamorous clothes aboard a bus. Several shots show a woman being harassed while another appears to show one woman in the process of being sexually assaulted.

The photographer, however, has defended the project saying it is an attempt to force people to think about women’s safety.

The series of images, entitled "The Wrong Turn", was initially posted on the Behance.net platform and the photographer’s own website. But they have been taken down, apparently amid an outcry in the Indian media and on social networking sites.
Among those to criticise the project was Sapna Moti Bhavnani, a Bollywood hairstylist and actress who took part in a recent stage production based on the gang-rape, Nirbhaya. “There is art and more frequently there is crap in the name of art. This rendition of the Nirbhaya story is...,” she said on social media.

Disney Tries Something New for TV: A Woman Creator

It’s always amusing when people criticize Walt Disney for being sexist because of the way he ran his company over 70 years ago, while completely overlooking the contemporary Disney Company’s abysmal track record of promoting women into top creative positions.


While Walt Disney’s behavior can at least be understood (slightly) in the historical context of mid-twentieth century America, the company’s actions today are indefensible.

Take, for example, Disney Television Animation. Launched in 1984, the division has produced over 50 half-hour series in the past thirty years, and of those half-hour series, only one—let me repeat that, ONLY ONE— was created solely by a woman.


And it has been 17 years since the premiere of that series—Sue Rose’s Pepper Ann.

Disney TV has finally deemed a second woman worthy of helming her own half-hour series. ‪Star Vs. The Forces of Evil,‬ created by Daron Nefcy, a 2009 CalArts grad, will debut on Disney Channel and Disney XD in 2015.


Disney teased the show at the San Diego Comic-Con last month with this footage;
Collapse )

For now, the animation industry’s attitudes towards women—not to mention minorities—remain mired in outdated paradigms and the evolution happens at a glacial pace.

Yes, ‪Star Vs. The Forces of Evil‬ is a sign of progress, but it’s also a reminder of how much further the major animation studios have to go until they begin to consistently judge creators on their creative potential and not their gender.

Want to vacation at the home of America's most famous polygamist?


Need a vacation? How about a nice, relaxing stay at Warren Jeffs' mansion, now know as America's Most Wanted Suites and Bed & Breakfast.

With its scenic location, cheery website and the promise of “quaint comfy rooms,” you might never suspect the complicated past of Utah’s newest inn. Only the name offers a clue. The compound was originally built for polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs, who is serving life in prison for sexually assaulting two girl he took as a child bride.

Constructed by his followers at the self-proclaimed prophet’s request in 2011, the Hildale, Utah, property now belongs to Willie Jessop, Jeffs’ former bodyguard-turned-hotelier. It opened to the public last week, allowing guests to get a glimpse of some of the mansion’s menacing features, such as double thick walls, solid doors that require extra hinges and a 12-foot-tall concrete fence that surrounds the property.

“I left it there so people could go and see how paranoid he was,” Jessop, 44, told NBC News about his former boss. “It was my hope that the walls would help be a reminder to the community that if you need walls like this, you’re probably doing something wrong.”

Fans Petition for a 'Weird Al' Yankovic Super Bowl Halftime Show



In a continuation of the renewed "Weird Al" Yankovic fervor that has swept the Internet in the past few weeks, one fan has petitioned the NFL to consider Al for next year's Super Bowl halftime show, which will take place in Glendale, Arizona on February 1.

"Having him headline the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show would not only be overly accepted by the millions of views," the fan writes, "but it would remain true to the standards and quality of the show business we have come to love and respect out of this prestigious event." The petition has already amassed close to 4,000 signatures at publication time.

Last month, Yankovic released his 14th album, Mandatory Fun, alongside a series of accompanying music videos, including parodies of "Fancy" and "Happy," that set fans and new listeners abuzz. To commemorate the occasion, SPIN ranked all of the entertainer's videos in order.

And, in honor of the "Weird Al" petition, SPIN has put together a potential set list, with guests, for the NFL to consider.

SPIN's Dream Set List for a "Weird Al" Super Bowl Halftime Show:

"Perform This Way" with Lady Gaga
"Handy" with a new verse by Iggy Azalea
"Amish Paradise" with Coolio
"Eat It" with hologram Weird Al
"Another One Rides the Bus" with Queen as backing band and Adam Lambert as guest vocalist
"Girls Just Want to Have Lunch" with Cyndi Lauper
"Tacky" segues into "Happy" with Pharrell as all the special guests come out wearing the rapper's signature hat as a grand group finale. (ehhhhhh no)

First pictures of silver fox (?) Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold



Wentworth Miller is a silver fox with his new grey hair on the set of his upcoming series The Flash on Wednesday afternoon (August 6) in Vancouver, Canada.

The 42-year-old actor will be playing the villainous role of Captain Cold, an enemy of The Flash. One of Captain Cold’s main superpowers is his ability to have a beam of cold that freezes anything it touches instantly.

It was just announced that another villain will be added to the show. In episode six, the recurring character of Tony Woodward aka Girder will be introduced, according to TV Line.

Here is a description of the character: “Woodward was a bratty steelworker who upon being dunked in a vat of molten metal that had been tainted by S.T.A.R. Labs waste emerged as a mass of iron, impervious to most anything.”
