"How to Get Away With Murder" Star Alfred Enoch on Abandoning His British Accent, Emma Watson & More


When Harry Potter alum Alfred Enoch gets on the phone, he's without his British accent. He's dropped it, at least for the time being, since signing on to play law student Wes Gibbons in the new Shonda Rhimes-produced show, How to Get Away with Murder. "This is how I talk now," he says. "I'm hoping you'll forgive me — if I don't have to come out of it, I don't."

The series, about a group of law students and their brilliant but ruthless law professor (Viola Davis), is already completely nuts, and it only just premiered last week. (The pilot featured an affair, two murders, and a crazy goth neighbor. It was great.) So far, what we know about Wes is that he's a transfer student, he has no idea what mens rea means, and he thinks it's appropriate to just walk into his professor's house without an invite. (That's how he catches her having the aforementioned affair.) Also, he may have murdered someone with four of his classmates.

Cosmopolitan.com spoke to Enoch about his character and fellow Hogwarts graduate, Emma Watson.

Could an Indian-American Family Comedy Be Coming to Television?

Sunny Tripathy recently signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to possibly create a television series based on his Indian-American family, the Tripathys.

“It will not be a show about curry, turbans, 7-Elevens -- whatever stereotypes that are out there. It will be far from that. But you will learn and see things you might be familiar with that are reflective of South Asian identity and culture,” said Tripathy, creator of the viral comedy YouTube series, “Keeping Up With the Guptas.”

When Tripathy landed a general meeting earlier this year with 20th Century Fox comedy executives and producers, Tripathy, who initially thought he had a shot at an entry-level writing position, was surprised when Fox took an interest in Tripathy's stories about his family.

Yellow Claw, Diplo, Waka Flocka Flame & LNY TNZ Are Telling You Drugs Are Bad Mmmkay

This is big. Really big… So big, in fact, that two minutes into it I presumed this to be a joke.

What initially sounds like Waka‘s normal tantrums about marijuana and “trap going techno” is quickly reinterpreted with a gander at this three and a half minute video. “We selling kush not white, boy” is a simple enough line that would appear to lack content, but, provided this visual, unveils a much broader meaning.

Yellow Claw, Diplo, & LNY TNZ came together for this bold music video with Waka Flocka Flame to make a monumental statement about what goes on behind the scenes far too often in the world of electronic music. Watch as this story follows sketchy drug dealers from distribution to all access at a night club and the resultant stark fatality of an average college girl who just went out looking for a good time.

In reality, this is too often the case; and such a big collaboration of names speaking out against the prevalence of drug culture in this controversial scene is a step in the right direction.

Bravely ending the video with the message: “drugs are not worth the risk,” we applaud the contributing artists for their attempts at trying to better educate the EDM obsessed masses.


yea idk I mean they tried so not gonna knock it...

Emily VanCamp "Absolutely" Wants Babies With Boyfriend Josh Bowman


Hear that Josh!? Emily VanCamp divulged during an appearance on The Meredith Vieira Show on Monday, Sept. 29 that she definitely wants kids — and, just maybe, she may already have the father picked out. The Revenge actress has been dating her British costar Josh Bowman since 2012.

"Yes, absolutely, especially when your sisters are having babies you just want to jump on the bandwagon. But I'm just happy being an auntie right now," VanCamp, 28, told the daytime host.

"I'm really busy and I feel like I kind of want to be the kind of mom I want to be," she continued. "With this schedule and playing this very tortured — exciting to play, but crazy character — I think I'll let that happen and I'll see where I'm at. They just make me so happy."

VanCamp has three sisters, with two of them recently welcoming children this year. Though she's getting baby fever with nephew Emmett and niece Ivy, she insists that she's in "no rush" to get pregnant. "They just bring so much light to my life," she told Vieira. "It's amazing."

Us broke news in January 2012 that VanCamp and Bowman, 26, were an item. This past March, the actress told Elle that the couple like to keep their private and professional lives "very separate."
VanCamp has previously dated her Everwood costar Chris Pratt (they played siblings!), Brothers & Sisters costar Dave Annable, and The Originals' Joseph Morgan. Bowman has previously wooed the late Amy Winehouse and Miley Cyrus.

New couple alert? Rachel McAdams visits Jake Gyllenhaal on the set of his new film

McAdams and Gyllenhaal leaving Madison Square Garden earlier this year, after watching a boxing match as research for Southpaw

New couple alert? Rachel McAdams was spotted visiting Jake Gyllenhaal on the New York set of Demolition in late September.

A few days later, the pair spent time at Vista Del Mar in Los Angeles.

McAdams, currently filming Spotlight with Mark Ruffalo in Boston, has spent much of her downtime in New York City in recent weeks.

McAdams, 35, and Gyllenhaal, 33, filmed the boxing drama Southpaw together in June. While on location in Pittsburgh, the actors were photographed grabbing dinner at Meat & Potatoes. At the film's wrap party at Donatellos Restaurant, Us Weekly reported that the couple shared "a corner table for more privacy and eventually left around 2 a.m."

Gyllenhaal is currently single while McAdams was last spotted with Patrick Sambrook, a Canadian music manager, in May.

James Franco and Seth Rogen are naked

James Franco and Seth Rogen aren't waiting to get hacked in order to share nude photos.

The longtime friends and collaborators pose side by side wearing only messenger bags in a photo Franco posted on Instagram on Friday.

"Boom boom, NAKED and Afraid," the 36-year-old "Spring Breakers" star captioned the image, which blurs out their privates.

It's obviously a teaser for their next project, although it's not exactly clear what it will be.

However, "Naked and Afraid," as Franco wrote in all of the captions, is a docudrama series on the Discovery Channel that follows individuals forced to survive on their own without food, water or clothing.

As the 32-year-old "Neighbors" star and Franco have done several times in the past -- remember their spoof on Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video, starring Rogen as Kim Kardashian? -- the comedic duo may just be at it again.

The Knick: André Holland gives another thoughtful interview

André Holland drives Friday night Cinemax drama

Holland, a compact man wearing a stylish gray suit and a blue shirt, confesses that the intricate surgical scenes on “The Knick” are sometimes rehearsed a day before they’re filmed. The actors practice operating on elaborate prostheses before they are fitted onto the actors undergoing the knife. In one scene, they had to perform an emergency C-section. The results were gruesome.

“We rehearsed those scenes the day before and spent a couple of hours just figuring out what the movements were,” Holland says. “The instruments have to be in a certain place. Where everyone stands around the table had to be rehearsed. And then on the day of the [scene], we showed up and the blood starts flowing. All of our preparation went out the window at that point.”

More difficult than handling these technical challenges is registering the internal combustion Algernon feels — but never voices — when white doctors and patients hurl ugly racist insults. The scenes were reminiscent of his childhood in Shades Valley, Ala., a small town outside Birmingham where he grew up the middle of three children.

“There’s a lot of emotional residue that [those scenes] have, just having grown up in the South,” Holland says. “Getting called the things I get called on the show. And doing those scenes over and over again. It gets in there. It does have an impact.”

Fortunately, Holland had a role model in his mother, Mary, a civil rights activist who was marching in downtown Birmingham while still in high school. Her experience provided inspiration when, shortly after finishing filming “The Knick,” he was cast as Martin Luther King Jr.’s right-hand man, Andrew Young, in the movie “Selma,” which debuts on Christmas. Call it his second lucky break.

“Playing Algernon and Andrew Young just cracked open all this personal family history for me,” he says. “So in addition to learning the American history portion of it, I’m learning family history. It really touched me.”

I wish more people watched this show because he is totally ONTD boyfriend material.
