    One Direction wave to their fans from a balcony at the Principe di Savoia hotel on Thursday afternoon (December 12) in Milan, Italy.

    The guys — Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan — got fans riled up and snapped pics from their phones of the huge crowd waiting across the street.
    “Milan is nuts today! u guys don’t mess around do u?” Niall tweeted.

    He added later on, after getting stuck in a lift, “Needed a few minutes to myself ! 8 of us got stuck in a tiny lift ! Well I was freakin out! My heart is still thumping now! That wasn’t fun! Claustrophobia is a terrible thing! and people tellin ya t calm down is worse hahha.”

    Just a little booze will do! Lizzy Caplan may strip down like it's no problem in Showtime's Masters of Sex with Michael Sheen, but the 31-year-old actress admits she's previously had to drink to calm her nerves before getting naked for the small screen. During an appearance on Chelsea Lately Tuesday night, the star revealed that she turned to vodka to prep for a sex scene during her guest-starring role on True Blood in 2008.

    "On True Blood -- I've never told anybody this -- but I was so nervous and then I was so drunk that after I shot the scene I was going up to the crew members -- I had just met all these people the day before -- and I was going up to all of them like, 'You got a boner! You do! You've got one!' It was horrible," she said, laughing, to Handler. "Horrible!"

    ONTD, have you ever gotten hammered before shooting a sex scene?

    Awards shows can seem like interminable events, but Susan Sarandon has apparently found a way to make all those dreary speeches seem a lot more fun: by being stoned!

    The Oscar-winning actress, 67, seemed downright casual about her penchant for getting high on Watch What Happens Live Wednesday.

    When host Andy Cohen asked her to name one major Hollywood event she showed up to stoned, Sarandon replied, "Only one?" and slapped her knee as the two shared a hearty laugh.

    "I would say almost all except the Oscars," she replied.


    That adds up to an awful lot of time in public baked: She has racked up eight Golden Globes and four Emmy nominations during her 43-year career, not to mention five Oscar nods.

    We already knew Sarandon had a sense of humor (look no further than her appearance in Motherlover on Saturday Night Live for proof). Now we know how she manages to find things so funny.

    His reaction
    "We just started screaming. We had to calm down so we wouldn't wake the neighbors.

    I was up all night waiting for this, and it's just amazing. It's surreal, honestly. I did not expect to be nominated.

    Everyone was talking about it, so I was like, 'It might be a possibility,' so that was the only thing. It was just shocking to me when I got nominated.

    I am really honored to be part of those five that were nominated. That was not part of my plan. It wasn't something I prepared for, so I'm really happy right now, honestly."

    "I'm just beyond excited. It's really an honor. It was a big role for me. It was challenging, but I took it day by day. Tom [Hanks] helped me and so did" director Paul Greengrass.

    What do you think this nomination will mean to Somalia?
    "A negative light has been shed on Somalia for a long time, and this [nomination] will be a positive light. Hopefully peace will come to Somalia one day .... As a Somali it was a good thing to do. I love acting but this was a true story."

    Jumping right into the aftermath of last week's humongous cliffhanger, "Three Ghosts" kicks off with Barry Allen working alongside Felicity and Diggle in an attempt to save the life of his hero and mentor. Although Oliver is initially very upset that Barry now knows his secret identity, he quickly comes to terms with the fact that the Central City native could be of some assistance in taking down super-man Cyrus Gold. Here are all of the highlights from this week's episode of "Arrow":

    I See Dead People
    While initially we're led to believe that Oliver is seeing ghosts from his past due to the rat poison Barry injected into his system, eventually we learn that it's just a terrible case of survivor's guilt effecting his psyche. In other words, he's actually starting to feel bad about the people that he's gotten killed. We've already seen Oliver deciding not to kill people anymore earlier this season, but this is a whole other level of heroism.

    Roy Just Wants to Help
    After The Vigilante shot an arrow into his leg last week, Roy Harper is still hellbent on finding out the truth about Sin's mysterious dead friend. While tracking down a lead, Roy is taken by Brother Blood and injected with the Mirakuru serum that gave Cyrus Gold his super-strength. Could this mean Roy Harper is now one step closer to becoming the Green Arrow sidekick Arsenal?

    Born on a Monday
    Upon breaking into Cyrus Gold's apartment, Diggle finds a book about Solomon Grundy. As those of you hardcore DC comic fans know, Cyrus Gold is the name of the gangster who eventually is transformed into Solomon Grundy. Now that Gold has been defeated and has had acid poured all over his face, could he be returning to life as the zombie supervillain from DC comic book lore?

    Angry Doctor Ivo
    In the flashback portion of this week's episode, Ivo and his men take hold of Oliver, Shado, and Sarah and forces Oliver to choose between the two women. Slade wakes up on the submarine feeling better than new thanks to the Mirakuru serum injected into his system. But with Ivo shooting Shado dead, it's only a matter of time now before Oliver and Slade Wilson become mortal enemies.

    Slade's Throwing Shade
    Not only did Slade Wilson appear in present day Starling City in the form of one of Oliver Queen's hallucinations, but we also got a glimpse of him sitting at a desk with Brother Blood quivering at his feet. Obviously, Slade's DNA is where Brother Blood has been deriving his version of the Mirakuru serum but to what gain? One thing is for sure though, Slade Wilson really wants to drive an arrow through Oliver Queen's eyeball.

    The Flash
    At the end of the episode, Barry Allen is struck by a huge lightning bolt, as a result of the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator blowing up across town and thrown headfirst into a shelf full of unstable chemicals. With the quick surge of electricity that pulses through Barry's face, it's quite clear that he is now the scarlet speedster known as the Flash. Next time we see Mr. Allen, here's hoping he's wearing that classic red and yellow costume!

    THOUGHTS, ONTD?

    Peaches Geldof might want to give Derek Acorah a call, because it looks like she's got a ghost that needs hunting.

    The socialite shared a photo of herself and son Astala in the bath, but mysteriously a translucent hand of what could be a ghost can be seen just above her shoulder.

    Peaches, 24, posted the spooky selfie on Instagram, and believes the hand belongs to the spirit of a woman who committed suicide 100 years ago after delivering a stillborn baby.





    Geldof - who lives in the property in Kent, South East England, with her husband Thomas Cohen, Astala, and their other son, eight-month-old Phaedra - said: 'The house was built in the 1920s by a rich man and his pregnant wife. However, his wife had a stillborn baby and was so grief-stricken she went mad. She apparently drowned herself in the bath.'

    She added: 'The presence I feel isn't malignant or angry, rather maternal and friendly - the house has a lovely atmosphere.'

    'Maybe she's just making her presence known because she loves having babies around.'
    Peaches has started to leave her door open when she sleeps at night in case the "ghost comes back".

    The daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates - decided to investigate the history of the house after posting the spooky snap on her Instagram account accompanied with the caption: 'Close up shot of the mystery ghost hand in pic I took of Astala and me in the bath!!'

  • 12/12/13--15:39: Tom Hardy Post!

  • Tom Hardy is singing "all the time" as he prepares to play Sir Elton John.

    'The Dark Knight Rises' actor will portray the legendary musician in new musical biopic, 'Rocketman', and he admits he has been taking extensive singing lessons to get ready for the film's numerous musical numbers.

    Quizzed whether he's had vocal training, he said: "Oh, all the time. I'm always singing."

    The star also revealed production on the film is still in the early stages but Elton, who is co-producing the feature through his Rocket Films production company, has been in touch.

    Hardy explained to BANG Showbiz: "It's all sort of under the radar at the moment, to be honest, but yes, I am [talking to Elton]."

    'Rocketman', which is being directed by Michael Gracey, will tell the singer's story from young child prodigy to musical icon.

    Elton will re-record some of his classic songs for the film's soundtrack, but it's not yet known whether Hardy's favourite song will make the cut. He added: "My favourite Elton song, I think it's 'Honky Cat'."

    Hardy was speaking at The Sun Military Awards, which took place last night (11.12.13) at the National Maritime Museum in London.


    The ceremony honours the bravery and courage of Britain's servicemen and women and the 36-year-old star is a staunch supporter.

    He said: "I think it's very important to celebrate our soldiers and get behind them and our navy personnel."

    The Sun Military Awards air on Monday, December 16, at 9pm on ITV.

    Our apologies to Adam Levine (and Maroons 1 through 4), but it's time to relinquish the crown of sexiness.

    Last month, the musician and "The Voice" judge was deemed the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine, an honor that has been bestowed upon the likes of Brad Pitt, Channing Tatum and Jude Law in the past. Our readers (who hold the undisputed title of Sexiest Readers Alive, so they know what they're talking about) begged to disagree.

    So with all due respect to People, the people have spoken.

    The true Sexiest Man Alive is Tom Hiddleston. Bam, you got Loki'd.

    In a reader poll, Hiddleston (most recently seen onscreen as the villainish trickster god Loki in "Thor: The Dark World") captured an overwhelming majority, garnering more than 77 percent of the vote for a resounding victory. (Confidential message to runner-up Michael Fassbender: Michael, there's no "Shame" in second place. Get it?)

    Hiddleston's virtues are many, from his British accent, his easy smile, and ability to really work some facial scruff, not to mention his charming personality and killer dance moves.



    Heck, we're even pretty attracted to the guy when he's wearing a helmet, white pancake makeup and greasy-looking lob (long bob, for the uninitiated) wig. See?

    Don't say you disagree.

    And let's talk sibling rivalries for a moment: Hiddleston delivered a whooping in the polls to his onscreen adopted brother, Chris Hemsworth, who captured just 4 percent of the vote. To add insult to injury, Hiddleston didn't even have to take off his shirt in the "Thor" movies to make it happen.

    Hiddleston will next be appearing in "Muppets Most Wanted" as The Great Escapo, as well in our hearts and nightly dreams.

    It seems weird to me to think that "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" is getting ready to shoot, but of course it is. As we enter this home stretch, there will be some big announcements coming about cast, and I'm curious to see how well the film protects some of its biggest secrets. Bleeding Cool reported a rumor today that Rhodey (Don Cheadle) will play a part in the film, and HitFix can confirm that Col. Rhodes, aka War Machine, has a key role in the conflict with Ultron that is the main focus of the sequel.

    Ultimately, Marvel has to start planning for the future. Robert Downey Jr. will not keep playing Tony Stark forever. I was about to say that Marvel hasn't had to deal with recasting one of their marquee characters yet, but that's not true. They recast Bruce Banner for "The Avengers" because they couldn't come to terms with Ed Norton on what role he'd play in the film creatively, and while I really liked Norton's take on the character, I think Mark Ruffalo absolutely killed it in "The Avengers." With The Hulk, though, because the big green guy is the main attraction, it feels like there's a little more latitude. I'm curious to see what happens when they have to make a decision about Iron Man or Thor or Captain America, since those actors have been such a key part of successfully bringing those characters to life.

    One thing you can count on is that at the end of "Avengers: Age Of Ultron," the group that calls themselves "The Avengers" isn't going to be the same group we saw eating shwarma together at the end of the first film. Major changes are coming for The Avengers, and I've said all along that I full expected the studio to break up the group by the end of the second film specifically to give Phase Three a major narrative arc of trying to get all of the originals back in place to stand against Thanos when he finally comes for Earth. Whether or not Rhodey will be one of those new Avengers standing together at the end of "Age Of Ultron" remains to be seen, but Cheadle's got a few films left on the contract, and I think it would be premature to start predicting his death at this point.

    ***

    In an effort to confirm from their own sources that USA Today wasn't making an assumption and that Don Cheadle will indeed reprise his Iron Man 3 role in The Avengers sequel, Bleeding Cool has possibly revealed an additional Age of Ultron cast member and an intriguing major plot point.

    Suggesting first that there's been a lot of info circulating that involves The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Bleeding Cool's sources report that English actor Simon McBurney is "in line to take a role." However, they're unable to confirm the current stage of his casting, or the character he'll play. But what they've been told, presumably by another source, is that McBurney will be playing J.A.R.V.I.S. "Not a computer voice Jarvis, mind you, but an actual Butler called Jarvis," the site added.

    J.A.R.V.I.S. is Just A Rather Very Intelligent System created for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and voiced by English actor Paul Bettany. But the character was introduced in the Marvel comics as Edwin Jarvis, Iron Man's actual butler. He notably served as a longtime caretaker of the Avengers Mansion and the Stark Tower, which the closing scenes of The Avengers movie implied will become the Avengers Tower. So it's possible that Joss Whedon plans to utilize that in the sequel. And to an extent, It also fuels the strong beliefs that the A.I. Jarvis will become Ultron.

    Demi Moore’s divorce from Ashton Kutcher may have only been final for less than a month, but she’s already getting a fresh start by selling her $250,000 engagement ring. Demi sold the ring to a Beverly Hills jeweler, all in the name of starting over. “Ashton broke her heart. Anything that reminds her of him makes her sad, and she wants to be happy,” a source close to Demi says.



    Demi’s certainly well within her rights to claim a new beginning, especially since Ashton’s been dating Mila Kunis for the past 18 months. Besides, it’s been 2 years since Demi and Ashton officially called it quits after their six year marriage. “Demi says she's now at peace with the divorce but she felt she needed to clear her head of any negative energy,” the source adds. "She insists she is fully cleansed of Ashton and is even ready to welcome Mila into her life."

    Check out the mysteriously sexy Avan Jogia in this exclusive photo from the latest edition of the Just Jared Spotlight of the Week series.

    The 21-year-old actor stars in the ABC Family series Twisted, which was a big summer hit and will be returning for the second half of its first season on February 11.

    Avan chatted with us about what to expect on the show, his love for music, his celeb pals like Josh Hutcherson and Ariana Grande, and also his girlfriend Zoey Deutch, who stars in the upcoming film Vampire Academy.



    Just Jared: You’re in the middle of filming Twisted, correct?

    Avan Jogia: Yes, I am.

    JJ: Which episode?


    AJ: We are filming episode 15.

    JJ: Out of?

    AJ: Out of… it would be 19, 20, something like that. Eight more episodes left.

    JJ: Do you know how the whole thing ends?

    AJ: I know a little bit about it. I don’t know a whole sh-t ton. I try to stay in the dark as much as possible. It’s nice, but I like to know what happened previously, back story stuff. But beyond that, I don’t even know what’s happening.

    JJ: Do you make up your own back story or is there already one?

    AJ: Bits and pieces. I make up most of the stuff that happened in juvie, and they helped me know what happened with my aunt and other things like that.

    JJ: Are there any teasers you can give us?


    AJ: There’s some stuff from juvie coming back, to haunt my character. The first two episodes are really insane, they’re insane episodes.

    JJ: A lot of stunts, or…?

    AJ: A lot of stunts, a lot of working night shoots in the forest, crazy. Some people come back. It will be very, very exciting.

    JJ: What’s your favorite on set memory?

    AJ: Just recently, I shot nights. Shooting in the forest and doing a bunch of these hi-tech stunts with ropes and harnesses attached to me. It was kind of fun. There’s some blue screen stuff so it was acting to nothing. It was kind of cool, it was like weird, weirder stuff that I’ve never done before so that was kind of cool.

    JJ: Is there a difference between blue screen or green screen, or is that the same?

    AJ: I have no idea. I think it’s the same idea. Well I don’t know why we stopped using green screen. But then we do use green screen for when it’s full, and the whole thing is green. But if it’s just a plate, like an insert, we use blue. I don’t know, man. Dude, it’s crazy. I’ve no idea.

    JJ: Just go with the flow?

    AJ: It’s not my area.

    JJ: Could you describe your style? Who do you look up to for fashion?

    AJ: I think I’ve always like musicians. I’ve always liked Iggy Pop and older musicians. Iggy Pop, the Rolling Stones, stuff like that. There was a point in my life where I would’ve liked to be a musician.

    JJ: Do you have any musical talent?

    AJ: I play guitar, piano, and accordion. So yeah, a little bit.

    JJ: All self-taught or did you have lessons?

    AJ: Self-taught, yeah. I mean, my parents got me lessons when I was like ten. And they got me a guitar and everything, me and my brother, they got us a guitar and a piano. We both alternated learning, and we just had no patience for it. We were just running around, jumping, not wanting to listen. Then a couple years later, the guitar was lying around and so I just picked it up and started learning myself because by fourteen, thirteen, that was cool. So it was cool to pick up a guitar and learn to play. I got a band in high school.

    JJ: Called?

    AJ: The band was called Sister Fister.

    JJ: Who was the fister?

    AJ: It was a punk band. It’s exactly what you think it is.

    JJ: You’ve had long hair pretty much, what your whole life?

    AJ: Yes.

    JJ: Have you ever cut it? What was the shortest it’s ever been?

    AJ: The shortest it’s ever been, I was fourteen years old. It was kind of like a fauxhawk kind of thing. And ever since then, I’ve just been growing it, ’cause I like it. It keeps me warm. It’s such a polarizing subject. People are like, “You’ve gotta cut your hair.” They get so upset. They’re like “cut your hair, cut your hair.” And then all the people who defend me, they’re like, “Do what you want, man. He’s his own person.” I’m like, this is a lot of conversation about hair. This is too much, too much passion.

    JJ: Would you ever shave it all off?

    AJ: Oh yeah. I like my hair, but I’m not attached to it.[I WOULD FUCKING KILL HIM] If I was doing a movie or something, and I thought it made sense to do that, I’d cut it off. I think I’d just do it for me, but not until there’s a role where I feel it would be inappropriate to have long hair, then I’ll do it.

    JJ: How long were you acting before you came to LA?

    AJ: I started acting when I was fifteen.

    JJ: Doing what?

    AJ: I did commercials in Vancouver. I did a couple Lifetime movies. With Mercedes Ruehl and Agnieszka Holland. Then I was doing acting and going back to school, and when I was at school, I was really attending so I kind of dropped out around sixteen. My principal was like, “Look, what are you doing? Go do something else.” And then my parents, who are the best people in the world, were like, “Okay, so if you’re not going to go to school, go to acting school.” So I went to acting school for a little bit. And they’re like, “Okay, if you want to do this properly, go down to LA for six months. If you get a job, that’s great, that’s what you’re doing now, you’re an actor. If you don’t get a job, you have to come back to high school, and at least get your high school diploma.” So, I was like, well I’m going to LA, there’s no way I’m risking that, and I’m like I have to get a job. So then I booked Victorious, and I was like I’m taking this, because I’m not going back to high school.

    JJ: So you’re a high school drop out?

    AJ: Yeah, a little bit. A little bit.

    JJ: Would you ever finish your degree?

    AJ: Um, I would…. I’m going to take some courses at UCLA and stuff. I like learning, I just hated high school.

    JJ: Speaking of Victorious, you’ve known Ariana [Grande] since then, what was she like then, and what do you think of her music now?

    AJ: She was great then. It was such a family, that show. All of us were very, very, very close. Then the show stopped, and we all stayed very close. I kind of always thought she was going to be a big deal. She has a great voice and she’s dedicated. She’s who she wants to [be]… she wanted it. It’s always nice to see somebody who wants their dreams, and then their dreams are realized. She always wanted to do this so it’s kind of a good thing. She’s kind of excited about that.

    JJ: How did you and Josh Hutcherson meet?

    AJ: We met at a Variety Power of Youth event when I first got out here, when I was 17, 16 years old. We met then and we just kind of hit it off. We’ve been friends ever since. He’s a great friend. It’s one of those things where you like, we see each other maybe once every couple months, because we’re both so busy. I’m shooting, and he’s shooting, but when we get back, it’s like old friends. It’s nice to have friends who have known you for a really long time. For me almost like five or six years.

    JJ: What’s your favorite memory of him?

    AJ: The Oakwood Apartments. I don’t know if you know what those are but that’s like a place where all the actor kids go to live, and he was living there. I wasn’t living there. I was living in a trailer behind someone’s house. When I first moved out here, I was living in a trailer behind this old guy’s house. And I used to hang out at his place, we used to drive around the Oakwood Apartments, and we thought we were
    very cool driving around the Oakwood Apartments, being like, “Yeah. We can drive.” And just being dicks. Yeah, that’s like my fondest memories.

    JJ: Did you ever watch The Hollywood Complex, the documentary about the Oakwood Apartments? It’s really good.

    AJ: No. Is it really good? It’s scary in there. It’s terrifying. I guess it’s the place where people have to live because, you know, where else are you going to go? It’s a place where everyone does live but it’s like, it’s too creepy in there.

    JJ: Do you speak more than one language?


    AJ: I speak a little bit of French and a little bit of Gujarati.

    JJ: What’s Gujarati?

    AJ: Gujarati is an Indian language. My father speaks that. So yeah. I speak French because of school. So I speak restaurant French, I can order glasses of wine, that kind of thing. And Gujarati, I speak mostly food related things as well ’cause my grandparents are like, “food?” and I’m like “yeah I know what you’re saying.” And then I speak English pretty poorly actually.

    JJ: Would you want to learn other languages?

    AJ: Yeah. I want to become fluent in French. And that’s maybe one of the courses I’ll take at UCLA or something like that. But the problem is, to me, you really have to be immersed in the culture to learn the language. And I’m filming in Los Angeles. But I feel like I’m not going to live here for my whole life, I don’t think.

    JJ: Random questions. What’s your favorite kind of tea?

    AJ: PG Tips.

    JJ: Black tea?

    AJ: Black tea, milk and sugar, English. Proper tea. Like my father and my mother made. I grew up on them. I used to actually do a couple cups of tea a day. It was like, it’s a big deal.

    JJ: For the caffeine jolt?


    AJ: For the caffeine jolt and also it’s just like, it’s comforting. I don’t know, a cup of tea is just like, it’s lovely. Something good about a cup of tea.

    JJ: What is your dream home, and does it happen to be a giant English manor?

    AJ: It does happen to be a giant English manor. That’s some information.

    JJ: How coincidental.

    AJ: It’s coincidental that you know that. I wonder why. Yes. A giant English manor with greyhounds and horses. I would sit around in a big dining hall and just, I don’t know.

    JJ: Opulence.

    AJ: Just live like, but opulence in the very old, the old sense of opulence. I think it’s pretty funny.

    JJ: What is your “Wolf Religion” and WTF does that mean?

    AJ: My wolf religion is, wow, good. I just, I do a lot of research with wolves. I just think wolves are really cool and I think their pack mentality is very interesting. We kind of deny our animal instinct as humans. I just think it’s like, “We don’t have those, I have an iPhone. What are you talking about, I’m not an animal.” But it’s interesting to look at that. Basically I want to live with some wolves, but that’s never gonna, I mean, I probably shouldn’t do that. It’s probably not healthy. I think wolves are incredibly interesting.

    JJ: Can you tell us about your middle school experience?

    AJ: I was homeschooled in middle school. My parents were nice enough to remove me from middle school, because that’s where all the evil is. All you learn in middle school is to just be evil. Right? (laughs) That’s the worst time. So my parents were like, “Let’s just not even do this.” So I got out of middle school and instead hung out and learned the guitar, and learned. I did a lot of research on Rome. I just explored stuff that I was interested in, which was fun.

    JJ: What qualities about your father do you like the most?

    AJ: He’s just a really reliable, loving, caring guy. I’m very lucky to have such a good father. He was just so good to me and taught me what being a man is.
    It’s good to have somebody that you know, it’s a good point of reference for me.

    JJ: How many kids of your own would you want?


    AJ: Lots. I want a brood. I want like…

    JJ: A pack? (laughs)

    AJ: Yeah, I want a wolf pack of kids. Eight or nine, I don’t know. I think reasonably, three or four. But if I was with somebody who wanted to have some extra kids, I wouldn’t be against it. And eventually they start raising themselves. I mean, you only have to get the first two right and then they start like.. that’s that pack mentality, that’s what I think.

    JJ: Do you enjoy your girlfriend [Zoey Deutch]‘s cooking?

    AJ: I do. Her cooking is good. I feel like these questions come from her, no?

    JJ: How many meals a week does she cook?

    AJ: Hmm… a lot actually. We’re at her house a lot so she, she’s like a wizard with the pasta. And she makes her own tomato sauce, which is crazy to me, because I’m just not a cook. It’s not my thing. I’m like, “How did you make the sauce?? Sauces come in jars, what are you talking about?” And she’s told me frequently that they don’t come in jars, in fact. You can cut up tomatoes and put your own base. I didn’t even know what a base was. I don’t know. I’ve learned a lot.

    JJ: How much chocolate do you consume a week, on average?

    AJ: A good amount. I have proper English chocolate though. I’ll have a flake or Cadburys. And I probably have it three times a week.

    JJ: Do you consider yourself romantic?


    AJ: Yes, very. I think in all aspects, not just in romance. I’m romantic when it comes to washing my car. I just like to do things, in a way that makes me happy. What makes me happy is like doing an ornate or complicated way of doing it. And especially when it comes to dating or going on dates, I like to do a big deal. And also you do a big deal because you care about the person you’re going on a date with. So I’ll do crazy sh-t.

    JJ: What’s the craziest thing you’ve done?

    AJ: I got a Mariachi band once, just to follow my girlfriend around, at her house. I did that.

    JJ: Were you home for that?

    AJ: No, I was out of town. I was in New York actually. I was in New York in Sandy. I was pretty impressed with myself. I was in Sandy so we had sh-tty reception and I got a Mariachi band to her house for her birthday.

    JJ: Did she open up the door and let these strangers in?

    AJ: Yeah, I don’t know why she did that. Now that I’m thinking about it, I just asked four guys to come to her house on her birthday. That’s not exactly a birthday present, but yeah.

    JJ: Soft or crispy bacon?

    AJ: Oh soft bacon, soft bacon. It’s so crispy and then it breaks apart in your mouth. I just feel like it tastes burnt to me.

    JJ: What’s the most frustrating thing about working on a television show without any creative control?

    AJ: You have to balance what you want to do as an actor to honor the character, and with knowing where you are or what the medium is. And you’re shooting seven days a week and everyone is trying to do the best job that they can and come up with the story lines. I think the most thing you can do is try to collaborate with people and try to cope as much as you can. And I think that as an actor, you just have to come up with your own answers for things, even if you’re not going to get an answer. You have to come up with your own answers so you don’t do a disservice to the character. Basically all I got into this job to do is never disserve the character, always just tell the story and tell the character’s story and do the best job you’ve got. It becomes hard when there’s so many people involved in that. But you just do the best you can and come up with the excuses for yourself.

    JJ: And now you’re going to be having your own control and you’re producing your own stuff.

    AJ: Yeah, I started producing. I think in this world, actors… If you really like what you do, and I love making movies and telling stories, you have to take the reigns yourself a little bit, especially in this world where studios are falling apart. Big institutions of the last 75 years are having trouble making movies. So I think it’s kind of like the wild west. You’ve got to take the reigns and find something that works for you.

    JJ: One last question. Do you like being late to things?

    AJ: No. I hate being late to things. It makes me anxious. I’m a real asshole if I’m late. And anyone who’s around me, like with me, if I need to go somewhere, I become irritable.

    JJ: Do you get irritable when other people are late?

    AJ: No. Actually funnily enough, I don’t. I just don’t. I mean it’s fine, they’re late, whatever. But when I’m late, I feel like, I just see them all waiting around for me and it just drives me insane. (laughs)

    Up-and-coming Australian actress Courtney Eaton has nabbed the female lead in Summit’s epic fantasy Gods of Egypt.

    Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Brenton Thwaites and Geoffrey Rush are the males leads in the story, which is set in motion when a ruling god named Set (Butler) kills another, Osiris.


    When Osiris' son Horus (Coster-Waldau) fails in his attempt to get revenge and has his eyed plucked out, it's up to a young human thief, played by Thwaites, in love with a slave, to help defeat the mad god. Eaton will play the slave girl.

    Eaton’s fellow Australian Alex Proyas is directing the project, which will shoot Down Under. Proyas wrote the script with Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. Basil Iwanyk is producing via his Thunder Road Productions banner, along with Proyas via his Mystery Clock Cinema banner.

    The casting is a major coup for Eaton, who only has one acting credit so far: Mad Max: Fury Road, a movie that isn’t due to be released until May 2015.

    Eaton was discovered by a local modeling scout in her hometown of Perth. When Fury Road began casting a wide net for actresses, producers reached out to modeling agencies in the country. The girl had no acting experience but the tape she made got her an audition with director George Miller and then several screen tests to win over studio execs. She eventually nabbed a role opposite Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.

    By this time, Eaton had a manager (Nils Larsen at Principato-Young Entertainment) and she then flew to Los Angeles where, after being pursued by the major talent agencies, she signed with CAA. When she returned to Australia, she then booked Egypt.

    Eaton is also repped by Sloane Offer and by Viviens Model Management in Australia.

    A new Anne Frank movie is on the way. Ari Folman ("Waltz With Bashir", "The Congress") will write and helm a family-friendly animated film based on the girl's famous diary which has been published into a book and translated into many languages.

    "Bringing the Anne Frank Diary to all screens is a fantastic opportunity and challenge," the Oscar-nominated director says in a statement. "There is a real need for new artistic material to keep the memory alive for younger generations."

    The project is fully supported by Anne Frank Fonds Basel organization which gives the filmmakers complete access to all of its archives. They are reportedly also negotiating the rights for the worldwide release, on all media and in all languages.

    Anne is one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust. She died at the age of 15 at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany in 1945. She wrote her life during World War II in a book given to her on her thirteenth birthday.

    Her moving story has been a subject of several film and TV adaptations, including George Stevens' 1959 Oscar-winning "The Diary of Anne Frank".

    FX Cold War drama ‘The Americans‘ may not have gotten any love from the 2014 Golden Globes nomination announcement, but Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys will still make next year theirs. Check out the first of many teaser trailer communiques to come in the latest ‘The Americans’ season 2 promo spot!

    However brief, the first ‘Americans’ season 2 spot plays with both Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings trapped in a closet preparing to assassinate a target, but with no wigs required this time around. We’ve also seen another FX spot playing off of Russian roulette, hopefully leading up to the debut of a full trailer before February.

    So far, only bits and pieces of ‘The Americans’ season 2 have emerged since the first season finale, though we know that season 1 stars Annet Mahendru (Nina), Alison Wright (Martha) and Susan Misner (Sandra Beeman) have been upped to series regular, while Margo Martindale will return as Claudia for at least one episode. In addition to a lighter focus on the marital drama, we’ll also see history start to catch up with the characters a bit, notably the deaths of Leonid Brezhnev and other soviet leaders.

    Additionally, a producer for 'The Americans' has been revealing the titles for new episodes on Twitter.

    2x01. "Comrades"
    2x02. "Cardinal"
    2x03. "The Walk In"
    2x04. "A Little Night Music"
    2x05. "The Deal"
    2x06. "Behind the Red Door"

    In a move said "to forge a new legacy in the story of Peter Parker on screen, we are going to make movies about his villains,"Sony Pictures Entertainment announced today that they will, in association with Marvel Entertainment, develop several new projects in the Spider-Man franchise, with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddard to collaborate on overseeing the developing story over several films that will be produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

    The five writers, along with the two producers and Marc Webb, have formed a franchise brain trust to expand the universe for the brand and to develop a continuous tone and thread throughout the films. Under the deals, the studio announced that Kurtzman & Orci & Pinkner are writing the screenplay forThe Amazing Spider-Man 3, which the studio hopes Webb will return to direct. That film will go into production next fall for release on June 10, 2016. In addition, the team will build on the cinematic foundation laid by Webb, Arad, and Tolmach in the first two movies. They will expand the franchise with Kurtzman & Orci & Solomon writing the screenplay for Venom, which Kurtzman will direct. Goddard, then, will write with an eye to direct, The Sinister Six, focusing on the villains in the franchise. Hannah Minghella and Rachel O’Connor will oversee the development and production of these films for the studio.



    Commenting on the announcement, Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures said, "The Spider-Man film franchise is one of our studio's greatest assets. We are thrilled with the creative team we have assembled to delve more deeply into the world that Marc, Avi and Matt have begun to explore in 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.' We believe that Marc, Alex, and Drew have uniquely exciting visions for how to expand the Spider-Man universe in each of these upcoming films."

    In tapping these five writers, the studio and the producers are guiding the future of the franchise with the writer/producers who have each played significant and key roles in developing such highly successful franchises, films, and series as Star Trek, Transformers, "Alias,""Fringe," Men in Black,Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, World War Z, "Lost," Cloverfield, The Cabin in the Woods, and Marvel's upcoming "Daredevil" series.

    Arad and Tolmach added, "This collaboration was born out of the great experience we and Marc had working with Alex, Bob, and Jeff on 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.' With more than fifty years' wealth of stories in the comic books to draw upon for inspiration, the Spider-Man universe is truly boundless; in addition, the Spider-Man comics have the greatest rogues gallery of any series, and to have the chance to explore that on film is truly thrilling. Until now, we have approached each film as a separate, self-contained entity, but with this move, we have the opportunity to grow the franchise by looking to the future as we develop a continuous arc for the story. That is what Alex, Bob, Jeff, Ed, and Drew will do in this unprecedented collaboration, and we're excited about the directions they are taking the character and the world."

    The most successful franchise in the history of Columbia Pictures, the four "Spider-Man" films to date have taken in over $3.2 billion worldwide.

    For his performance in Captain Phillips, Tom Hanks was nominated for the best actor SAG and Golden Globe awards, but for his performance in Saving Mr. Banks he was nominated for neither group's best supporting prize. Does that mean that he is assured an Oscar nomination for the former and out of the running for an Oscar nomination for the latter? In a word, no.

    Far too often, we forget the major distinctions -- in terms of size, origin and background -- between the groups that determine the nominations for the Screen Actors Guild, Golden Globe and Academy awards. SAG noms are determined by 2,100 randomly-selected, American-based members of SAG-AFTRA, the actors' union. Golden Globe noms are determined by about 90 non-American journalists. And Oscar noms are determined by approximately 6,000 people from America and all over the world who actually make movies.

    Because many -- in fact, most -- Oscar-nominated performances do receive SAG and/or Globe noms en route to their Oscar noms, there is an assumption that performances that do not snag SAG and/or Globe noms instantly fall out of the running for an Oscar nom, and that performances that do snag SAG and/or Globe noms are locks for Oscar noms. A look at the last 12 years of results from all three groups, though, does not bear this out entirely.

    * * *

    Indeed, since 2001, 17 of the 240 acting Oscar nominees -- or 7 percent -- received neither a SAG nor Globe nom en route to the big show.

    1. Samantha Morton (In America, 2003) for best actress
    2. Djimon Hounsou (In America, 2003) for best supporting actor
    3. Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog, 2003) for best supporting actress
    4. Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River, 2003) for best supporting actress
    5. Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, 2004) for best actor
    6. Alan Alda (The Aviator, 2004) for best supporting actor
    7. William Hurt (A History of Violence, 2005) for best supporting actor
    8. Tommy Lee Jones (In the Valley of Elah, 2007) for best actor
    9. Laura Linney (The Savages, 2007) for best actress
    10. Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, 2008) for best supporting actor
    11. Maggie Gyllenhaal (Crazy Heart, 2009) for best supporting actress
    12. Javier Bardem (Biutiful, 2010) for best actor
    13. Gary Oldman (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, 2011) for best actor
    14. Max von Sydow (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, 2011) for best supporting actor
    15. Emmanuelle Riva (Amour, 2012) for best actress
    16. Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild, 2012) for best actress
    17. Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook, 2012) for best supporting actress

    Many of these performances came in late-year releases (i.e. Eastwood in Million Dollar Baby, Gyllenhaal in Crazy Heart and von Sydow Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close), which probably precluded some SAG and Globes voters from seeing them. Others were smallish performances in big contenders (i.e. Harden in Mystic River, Alda in The Aviator and Weaver in Silver Linings Playbook) and may have picked up additional steam since the SAG and Globe noms were announced. And still others were the beneficiaries of relentless championing by members of the industry and press that finally resonated with voters (i.e. Shannon in Revolutionary Road, Bardem in Biutiful and Riva in Amour).

    * * *

    Meanwhile, 19 performances that received both SAG and Globe noms were not subsequently nominated for an Oscar.

    1. Hayden Christensen (Life as a House, 2001) for best supporting actor
    2. Cameron Diaz (Vanilla Sky, 2001) for best supporting actress
    3. Cate Blanchett (Bandits, 2002) for best actress or best supporting actress*
    4. Richard Gere (Chicago, 2002) for best actor
    5. Dennis Quaid (Far From Heaven, 2002) for best supporting actor
    6. Evan Rachel Wood (Thirteen, 2003) for best actress
    7. Maria Bello (The Cooler, 2003) for best supporting actress
    8. Paul Giamatti (Sideways, 2004) for best actor
    9. Russell Crowe (Cinderella Man, 2005) for best actor
    10. Ziyi Zhang (Memoirs of a Geisha, 2005) for best actress
    11. Leonardo DiCaprio (The Departed, 2006) for best actor or best supporting actor*
    12. Ryan Gosling (Lars and the Real Girl, 2007) for best actor
    13. Angelina Jolie (A Mighty Heart, 2007) for best actress
    14. Kate Winslet (Revolutionary Road, 2008) for best actress
    15. Mila Kunis (Black Swan, 2010) for best supporting actress
    16. Leonardo DiCaprio (J. Edgar, 2011) for best actor
    17. John Hawkes (The Sessions, 2012) for best actor
    18. Nicole Kidman (The Paperboy, 2012) for best actress
    19. Helen Mirren (Hitchcock, 2012) for best supporting actress

    *HFPA nominated for lead; SAG nominated for supporting

    Many of these performances came in movies that were not widely seen (i.e. Christensen in Life as a House, Blanchett in Bandits and Hawkes in The Sessions) that wound up getting drowned out of the awards discussion entirely. Others came from movie stars who had rarely done "serious movies" but were trying to be seen in a new light (i.e. Diaz in Vanilla Sky, Jolie in A Mighty Heart and Kunis in Black Swan). And still others were simply in jampacked categories in which a few votes could have knocked them out of contention (i.e. Gere in Chicago, Giamatti in Sideways, DiCaprio in The Departed and Hawkes in The Sessions).

    * * *

    So let's apply this to 2013.

    The following performances received both SAG and Globe noms:

    Bruce Dern (Nebraska) for best actor
    Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) for best actor
    Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips) for best actor
    Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) for best actor

    Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) for best actress
    Sandra Bullock (Gravity) for best actress
    Judi Dench (Philomena) for best actress
    Meryl Streep (August: Osage County) for best actress
    Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks) for best actress

    Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips) for best supporting actor
    Daniel Bruhl (Rush) for best supporting actor
    Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave) for best supporting actor
    Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) for best supporting actor

    Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle) for best supporting actress
    Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) for best supporting actress
    Julia Roberts (August: Osage County) for best supporting actress
    June Squibb (Nebraska) for best supporting actress

    The following performances received either a SAG or Globe nom:

    Christian Bale (American Hustle) for best actor
    Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street) for best actor
    Idris Elba (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) for best actor
    Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) for best actor
    Joaquin Phoenix (Her) for best actor
    Robert Redford (All Is Lost) for best actor
    Forest Whitaker (Lee Daniels' The Butler) for best actor

    Amy Adams (American Hustle) for best actress
    Julie Delpy (Before Midnight) for best actress
    Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha) for best actress
    Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Enough Said) for best actress
    Kate Winslet (Labor Day) for best actress

    Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) for best supporting actor
    James Gandolfini (Enough Said) for best supporting actor
    Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine) for best supporting actress
    Oprah Winfrey (Lee Daniels' The Butler) for best supporting actress

    And the following performances received neither a SAG nor Globe nom:

    Christian Bale (Out of the Furnace) for best actor
    Leonardo DiCaprio (The Great Gatsby) for best actor
    Hugh Jackman (Prisoners) for best actor
    Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) for best actor
    Ben Stiller (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) for best actor

    Berenice Bejo (The Past) for best actress
    Adele Exarchopoulos (Blue Is the Warmest Color) for best actress
    Brie Larson (Short Term 12) for best actress
    Sophie Nelisse (The Book Thief) for best actress

    Casey Affleck (Out of the Furnace) for best supporting actor
    George Clooney (Gravity) for best supporting actor
    Chris Cooper (August: Osage County)
    Harrison Ford (42) for best supporting actor
    Will Forte (Nebraska) for best supporting actor
    James Franco (Springs Breakers) for best supporting actor
    John Goodman (Inside Llewyn Davis) for best supporting actor
    Jake Gyllenhaal (Prisoners) for best supporting actor
    Tom Hanks (Saving Mr. Banks) for best supporting actor
    Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street) for best supporting actor
    David Oyelowo (Lee Daniels' The Butler) for best supporting actor
    Jeremy Renner (American Hustle) for best supporting actor
    Geoffrey Rush (The Book Thief) for best supporting actor

    Jennifer Garner (Dallas Buyers Club) for best supporting actress
    Naomie Harris (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) for best supporting actress
    Scarlett Johansson (Her) for best supporting actress
    Melissa Leo (Prisoners) for best supporting actress
    Margo Martindale (August: Osage County) for best supporting actress
    Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) for best supporting actress
    Octavia Spencer (Fruitvale Station) for best supporting actress

    * * *

    On the basis of the last 12 years of history, the odds are that at least one of the 15 performances that received a SAG and Globe nom will not receive an Oscar nom, and that at least one of the many performances that received neither a SAG nor a Globe nom will. Drawing upon that history, who are they most likely to be?
    The best actor category is the most crowded and hard to predict -- and, as was demonstrated by the SAG noms, which excluded the widely-presumed frontrunner Redford, no one is safe. I do think that All Is Lost's Redford will be nominated, but I also believe that The Butler's Whitaker, a past Oscar winner who was snubbed by the Globes, has a substantial base of support and that The Wolf of Wall Street's DiCaprio, a three-time Oscar nominee who was snubbed by SAG, will pick up steam as more people catch up with his late-screening movie. The point is that I believe that at least one of the four men who received both SAG and Globes noms for best actor will get bumped. And I regret to say that I do still think that Nebraska's Dern and Captain Phillips' Hanks are the most vulnerable -- despite the fact that Hanks is Hanks and Dern has been everywhere and doing everything he possibly can to promote his candidacy.

    The best actress category seems more set, if only due to lack of viable alternatives. August: Osage County is not everyone's cup of tea, but I think that Streep is so revered that she will still be nominated, as will her fellow SAG and Globe nominees Blanchett, Bullock, Dench and Thompson, who are up for better movies this year. If someone does go down, though, it will probably come at the expense of four-time nominee Adams -- a Globe but not SAG nominee this year -- for American Hustle, a late-in-the-year release, or Louis-Dreyfus for Enough Said.

    In the best supporting actor race, I'm a little worried about Captain Phillips' Abdi and Rush's Bruhl, who both received SAG and Globes noms, but are still largely unknown to most people and could be overtaken by Saving Mr. Banks' Hanks (whom we know is beloved by the Academy and is up for a character -- Walt Disney -- who was the face of the movie industry), The Wolf of Wall Street's Hill (remember how late-year releases do) or even someone like Nebraska's Forte or Enough Said's Gandolfini.

    Finally, I have been projecting -- and plan to continue to project -- that Dallas Buyers Club's Garner, who has yet to be nominated by anyone, will crack into the best supporting actress race. Why? Because most Oscar voters only screen a small number of the contenders (probably somewhere between a dozen and two dozen) and then fill out their ballots with the stars of the movies they liked. That logic paid off last year when I forecasted an Oscar nom in this same category for Silver Lining Playbook's Jacki Weaver, not because I felt she deserved it, but because I suspected she would ride her popular film's coattails to a nom. That notion was ridiculed -- until it happened. But if Garner gets in, then who will she bump? I am totally convinced, at this time, that Nyong'o and Lawrence are safe, but I think that Nebraska's Squibb and August's Roberts are on shakier ground. Because I do expect Winfrey to rebound from her Globes snub, and am sticking with my Garner pick for now, I would have to say that Roberts will probably be the first (wo)man overboard -- her movie is just not good or liked enough.

    With an 82% drop in its second week, from 305,280 to 45,536, “Artpop” is so stiff, you could iron a shirt on it.

    And everybody knows.

    Nobody wants to go to a show no one else is attending.

    Heat. That’s what gets people to go; when your friends are going, when it’s the place to be and you don’t want to be left out. But you’re not missing anything if you stay home. Hell, you’ve already seen it all on TV. And that’s enough for most people.

    lady-gaga-artpop-dinner-announcement-2013-main-400x400
    Lady Gaga needs to reinvent herself. She needs to follow in the footsteps of Christina Aguilera, of all people. Christina’s album was dead as a doornail, so she stayed home, with some lame excuse I can’t even remember, and that’s just the point. Then she burnished her image on “The Voice,” dieted down and went from being the scourge of the tabloids to their darling.

    Gaga needs to make a similar transition. She’s got no manager — and not only does a manager run interference, he or she gives you guidance from outside the bubble. Gaga believes if she just keeps spinning faster, doing more, changing outfits multiple times a day, we’ll care. But we don’t.

    Fallout for Kanye

    Is Kanye West killing his career, or will he be able to recover?

    Kanye has an advantage over Gaga and most acts. He was never a man of the people, never on their side. So he doesn’t have to worry about losing their trust so much as being ignored.

    He has yet to cure cancer or create Google. But he keeps telling us he’s an oppressed genius. It’s tough being a black man in America, but the last time I checked, the president was African-American, and although racism is still rampant, is that what’s truly holding Kanye back, or is it that he’s not paid his dues and demonstrated skills in areas other than music? Michael Jordan couldn’t make it in baseball, despite being a much better player than the average Joe. Why is it those who win in one sphere automatically believe they can in another?

    gaga_bow

    Furthermore, Kanye’s lost track of the narrative. His album had very little impact, and now it’s all fiancee Kim
    Kardashian, all the time; she may be rich but she’s a borderline laughing stock. “SNL” skewered her so sharply she’s shish kebab, and almost impossible to take seriously.

    Oh, that’s right — we never did. Her skill was being a tabloid train-wreck, a role she plays well.

    Now Seth Rogen and James Franco are making fun of Kanye. Used to be he was off limits. Now he’s a punching bag, like Gaga. Then again, who wouldn’t make fun of his inane sex-on-a-motorcycle video? It’s so ridiculous you can only laugh — at him.

    Is this the end of Kanye?

    Like I said, the public was never on his side. If he releases great music, he can climb back up, especially in the modern era where the cycle is so fast that what happened today is forgotten next week. But trends have changed. Radio and the critics have embraced Lorde, who is not only not hip-hop, but rails against the trappings of blowhard, hedonistic, materialistic celebrities in her monster hit “Royals.” In other words, do we really care about Louis Vuitton, never mind leather jogging pants? Is Lorde ushering in an era of what’s inside as opposed to outside? One that’s no longer about surface trappings but thought?

    We’re ready for it.

    Not that the public will give up reading the tabloids any time soon. But right now, the only place Kanye lives is in gossipland. And that’s a hell no musician wants to endure.


    gaga and everybody else needs to ride the rest of this year out
    beyonce snitch snatched every strand of every popstar in the game and salted the follicles i mean

    ontd, what do you think gaga or kanye should do to gain public interest again?
