In early May, Fox held the first screening of “The Fault in Our Stars” in New York City, and we were lucky enough to not only see the film, but also attend the press conference with the cast and filmmakers. The press conference, which was streamed online, can still be viewed here. The lineup included stars Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, and Sam Tramell (who actually has a young son named Gus), director Josh Boone, and author John Green. It was obvious from the interaction between theRead More
This past Februrary, a film called “Vampire Academy” hit theatres. Remember it? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone because most people probably don’t either. Despite the clever school-centered promos and the already established massive international fanbase, plus the fact that the team behind the film were the same guys who blessed us with “Mean Girls” and “Heathers,” “Vampire Academy” was sure to be a mega-hit with the audiences, both old and new. Except it wasn’t. Not exactly. Less than a week after its North American release, the film already seemed toRead More
Emily Rose is pulling double-FBI duty this year as she returns not only to play Audrey Parker on season 5 of Syfy’s “Haven,” but also appears in a recurring role on USA’s “Graceland.” She plays an agent in the DC office who’s an ally to Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit), and today we are sharing the exclusive first images of Rose on the show. “Graceland,” of course, is set in Southern California, and Mike does return to the beach house that’s filled with undercover agents from the FBI, DEA and ICE,Read More
April 10, 2014 UPDATE: Our scoop has been confirmed by The Wrap and Moretz is in final negotiations. Meet your new Cassie, “5th Wave” fans!

We have learned that Sony and director J Blakeson have offered the lead role of Cassie Sullivan in “The 5th Wave” to Chloe Moretz.

Another new fairy tale adaptation is heading for the big screen, and this time Sofia Coppola will be behind the camera. She’s taken over a live action version of “The Little Mermaid” from Joe Wright, and this one is said to be much closer to its Hans Christian Andersen roots than the now iconic Disneyfied Ariel version. So who will play Coppola’s Little Mermaid, who gives up her voice and undergoes excruciating pain in order to exchange her flippers for legs in order to live amongst the humans who fascinateRead More
Before the premiere of its third season (just as biting and hilarious ever, as if that’s a surprise), the cast and creator of HBO’s political comedy “Veep” took to the stage at LA’s Dolby Theater for their first appearance at the annual Paleyfest TV festival. No news was broken, but creator Armando Iannucci and the cast – Julia Louis Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Matt Walsh, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Sufe Bradshaw, Kevin Dunn and Gary Cole (minus one Anna Chlumsky – boo!) regaled the crowd with behind the scenes antics, theRead More
"Pretty Little Liars" at PaleyFest 2014
Ahead of its usual shocking season finale, the cast and creators of ABC Family’s flagship show “Pretty Little Liars” took to the stage in LA’s Dolby Theater as part of the 2014 PaleyFest put on by the Paley Center for Media and Television. Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Troian Bellisario, Sasha Pieterse and Ian Harding – the “Liars,” their mysterious vanishing best friend Alison and that jerk Ezra, respectively – along with other cast members and writers and producers regaled the audience with behind the scenes stories and hintsRead More
Next week, one of our favorite new shows of the year so far premieres. “The 100,” based on the young adult novel by Kass Morgan, will take The CW to dark and twisted places as a bunch of juvenile delinquents are set free on a post-apocalyptic Earth. The line is quickly drawn between those who wish to remain lawful and those who immediately choose lawlessness, and a core group, led by Eliza Taylor‘s Clarke, navigates the dangers surrounding them, from a potentially toxic planet to each other. Newcomer Christopher LarkinRead More
Lone Scherfig’s big screen adaptation of 2010 controversial play “Posh” has wrapped up filming, but we’ve confirmed some final bits of casting thanks to a tip from U&C reader Elle: “Downton Abbey” star Jessica Brown-Findlay and fellow British up and comers Olly Alexander, Sam Reid and Matthew Beard as well as “The Book Thief” star Ben Schnetzer are also part of the ensemble cast that includes Max Irons, Freddie Fox, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth, Holliday Grainger and Natalie Dormer. This mostly young, white and male cast play members of TheRead More
One project we’ve been keeping a very close eye on is “Rodham,” James Ponsoldt’s take on a young lawyer named Hillary Clinton. We have our favorites for the role, and since Carey Mulligan won’t be playing her, when we got the chance to chat with one of our fantasy casting choices, we couldn’t help but raise the possibility. Turns out, Brie Larson is more than aware of the project. She told our own Heather Lashaway at yesterday’s junket for her upcoming film “Short Term 12” that she “would definitely beRead More
