Hollywood Crush has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Ryan Murphy has been toying with our emotions lately. And if he doesn't make up his mind soon about plans for his "Glee" stars, I might just throw a slushie in his face! Okay, not really. But the back-and-forth on his plans for the future of the show's breakout stars, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer, is getting out of hand. And now things just got a little more complicated.

In light of all the he-said-she-said news regarding Lea, Cory and Chris' status for "Glee"'s fourth season, Ryan told Deadline he's putting plans for his scripted "Glee" spin-off on hold.

Ryan told Deadline he talked to Lea, Cory, and Chris earlier this year about the possibility of starring in a spin-off in which their characters would leave Lima, Ohio, and move to New York City to attend college at Juilliard. But when the news of their potential "Glee" exit hit the web, Ryan decided to reevaluate his plans.

"To pick up and read the actors saying, 'We found out we were fired from Twitter.' All of us, the studio, the network, were like, 'OK, that isn't exactly cool,' because we involved all three of them in that decision. So then what happened is that we decided, 'OK, let’s not do it.' So that’s where we are today."

Oh, snap! It sounds like Ryan and his stars weren't exactly on the same page, after all. But it seems like the real losers in this situation are the fans. Especially the ones who wanted to see Rachel, Finn and Kurt take on the big city. So that leads me to this very important question, Crushers:

Would you watch a "Glee" spin-off with Rachel, Kurt and Finn in NYC? Vote in our poll after the jump!

The Reaping continues: Two more tributes, the boy and girl from District 6, have been cast in Liongate's adaptation of "The Hunger Games." Following what seems to be a pattern, both District 6 parts went to relative unknowns—Ashton Moio and Kara Petersen.

Ashton's credits include stunt double work for several films like last year's "Let Me In," "Charlie Wilson's War," "The Longest Yard," and "The Ring Two." Kara has also done stunt work including 2007's "Bring It On: In It to Win It," and she'll appear in this summer's highly-anticipated "Super 8."

Whoa! That's the first word that came to mind after watching MTV's EXCLUSIVE premiere of the trailer for Taylor Lautner's "Abduction," which hits theaters September 23. Taylor stars as Nathan Price, a teenager who has always felt different. As he says in the trailer: "I walk around like everybody else, but inside I just feel like I'm a stranger in my own life."

And there's a reason. After Nathan stumbles across his baby picture on a missing-person's website, he suddenly becomes involved in a world of mystery and underground spies. Not to mention, he's been dubbed a "high value asset" by the CIA, and now he's on the run. (Do I really have to wait until September for answers?!)

After months of casting rumors, Lionsgate has completed the search for "The Hunger Games"' trio of stars. Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth will join Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss as Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne in the film adaptation of the series.

As with the casting of Katniss, fans are incredibly vocal about the news. Some are thrilled, while others, well, not so much. But that's the case with any casting news, especially for such a big franchise. Yesterday we asked you to vote in our poll to let us know what you think of your new Peeta and Gale. As of press time, you said neither actor was your ideal choice. But you also had a lot to say that couldn't be summed up with a yes or no answer. We scoured the Hollywood Crush comments and Twitter to see how you, the fans, were reacting to the casting news. Here's what we found:

The wait is almost over. In just a few hours (at 7:53 p.m. to be exact), Katy Perry will sit down with MTV to talk about her new music video for "E.T."! We've been counting down to the huge event with a look back at Katy's previous music video endeavors. Check out her past video hairstylesfashion and concepts to catch up.

If you've somehow missed the news, we have to remind you that Kanye West also appears in "E.T.", which got us thinking about other stars who've teamed up with Katy. Here's a look at some of Katy's other famous video co-stars.

Phone home, guys! Only one more day until Katy Perry debuts her highly anticipated "E.T." music video on MTV. In the meantime, we're looking back at Katy's past music video fun to hold us over until the premiere. We already revisited her ever-changing hairstyles and fashion, so today we thought we'd look back at some of her previous music video concepts.

In 2008's "Hot N Cold," Katy waits at the alter for her impending nuptials to a fine-looking fiance. But said fiance gets cold feet, thanks to his bi-polar ways and chooses to run away during the middle of the ceremony. So what does our bride-to-be do? She chases him, naturally, and lets him know how destructive his indecisive personality is. Strangely enough, at the end of the video they go through with the wedding. Probably not the best decision to marry a "hot n cold" guy, but we'll forgive Katy because this video is just so much fun.

Collective swoon: Robert Pattinson graces the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly with his "Water For Elephants" co-star Reese Witherspoon.

And while Rob may be the latest celebrity to reveal his love of the series, he's certainly not the first. Keep reading after the jump for a round-up of the series' other famous fans!

Now that we officially have our Katniss, the hunt is on for fellow District 12 tribute, Peeta Mellark. And everyone seems to have an opinion (including us!) on who should be cast alongside Jennifer Lawrence in the film adaptation of "The Hunger Games."

In the book, Suzanne Collins describes Peeta as "having ashy blond hair that falls in waves over his forehead." But like we saw with the casting of Jennifer, Hollywood may not pick someone who already looks the part. With that in mind, we chatted up the experts to find out who they think should nab the coveted role.

"He's probably going to have to be, you know, close to [Jennifer's] age, obviously," said Theresa Morgan from Down With The Capitol. "Our biggest concern with one of the younger actresses was that a lot of the people that had been mentioned for Peeta, we weren't sure could handle the role. With Jennifer being cast, it opens the age range for Peeta."

And just like Jennifer, Hailee Steinfeld, and Abigail Breslin were the front runners of the Katniss race, three names keep popping up for the role of Peeta: Josh Hutcherson, Alex Pettyfer and fan-favorite Hunter Parrish.

After tons of speculation and what seemed like a forever-long wait, MTV News exclusively revealed Thursday that Jennifer Lawrence will play Katniss Everdeen in the upcoming film adaptation of "The Hunger Games." Following the announcement, we checked in with the experts to see what they had to say about Jennifer becoming District 12's tribute.

"I was just the most relieved," said Megan Scott of The Hob. "Like, okay finally we're getting this news. It's official."

Taking a page from its "Twilight" success, Summit Entertainment is putting its future in the hands of book adaptations. A few years ago, Summit convinced Stephenie Meyer to sell her "Twilight Saga," and $750 million later, we think they might be on to something. As they close the final chapter on the popular franchise, Summit is sucking up book rights like a hungry vampire.

Their latest deal? Veronica Roth's young adult debut, "Divergent," Deadline reports. The novel, which will be published by the HarperCollins imprint Katherine Tegen Books, follows 16-year-old Beatrice Prior in dystopian Chicago. Although the book doesn't hit shelves until May 3, it's already receiving early praise, perhaps influencing Summit to so quickly jump on the rights.

"'Divergent' is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future," said "The Maze Runner" author James Dashner.
