Jay Gatsby is pretty dishy as far as literary icons go. So it's no wonder "Great Gatsby" director Baz Luhrmann enlisted Leonardo DiCaprio to play him in the splashy big-screen adaptation. And we also have to give Baz props for casting Callan McAuliffe as a young Jay in the film. In honor of his role, we are naming Callan this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out Callan talking about his part, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: The 18-year-old grew up in a suburb outside of Sydney with his family. And while in school, he focused a lot on sports and acting. Now, he’s focused on thanking us here at Hollywood Crush for bestowing HDH status upon him.
"I’m so grateful. I’d like to thank who needs thanking. I don’t know who they are. Nonetheless, I’m very deeply honored, and I think this is probably the highlight of my career,” he told us at the movie’s premiere. "And it’s all going to be downhill from this point. So thanks for that."
Somehow, Callan, we doubt that.
Intrigue? Check! Text messages? Check! Killer fashions? Quadruple check! KILLINGS? All the checks!
A trailer for the fourth season of “Pretty Little Liars” has just dropped (via The Hollywood Reporter), and judging from the clip, the upcoming episodes promise to have all the mystery we've come to expect from the ABC Family series—and then some.
Hilary Duff is getting her selfie on during her upcoming cameo on "Two and a Half Men." The actress is set to appear on the hit CBS sitcom on May 9, and fans are getting an early look at her appearance.
In a new still from the episode, Hilary, clad in a low-cut pink number, is out to dinner with Ashton Kutcher’s Walden. Walden looks on as Hilary's Stacey snaps a shot of herself making a weird face, which we assume she thinks looks sexy. (We've been around the Instagram block a time or two...)
Darren Criss might have a soft spot for TV host Rachel Maddow, but that doesn't mean he wants her to pour him a drink anytime soon. The "Glee" star stopped by the MTV News offices on Monday, where he opened up about attending the splashy White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, D.C., over the weekend.
While there, he shook the hands of some of the usual and more unusual suspects, and happened to have his drink personally shaken and stirred by the MSNBC personality.
“It was pretty action packed. It was my second one, and this time it was much more casual cause this time I was not there with a publication,” he explained. “I just went with a friend. So I was a plus one. I absolutely crashed. You get to meet a lot of very interesting people."
Klaus fans rejoice! "The Vampire Diaries" spin-off, "The Originals," has been picked up by The CW one day after the back-door pilot aired. Yes, that means there will be a lot more hybrid goodness to drink in week after week.
“As soon as we saw last night’s episode of 'The Vampire Diaries,' we knew we wanted more of 'The Originals'—Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson have done a fantastic job with 'The Vampire Diaries,' which is as fast-paced and well-written as ever, and Julie has created an equally compelling world for 'The Originals,'" CW president Mark Pedowitz said in a statement.
The Joseph Morgan-starring series finds Klaus and the Original clan down in New Orleans, where they once ruled the underworld. Now, he’s back home and competing with his former protege, Marcel, who is playing dirty and ruling the roost.
Nolan Gerard Funk is hardly a newbie in Hollywood, but he is the new guy on MTV’s hit show "Awkward." And, we figured what better way to welcome him to the MTV family than by honoring him as this week’s Hump Day Hottie. (We’re saving a dance for you at the holiday party, Nolan!)
Check out this dreamy photo of Nolan, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: 26-year-old Nolan grew up in Vancouver, where he learned how to speak multiple languages and was also a bit of an athlete. In addition to acting and singing, the Canadaian native is also a skilled gymnast and diver.
Here's some "Glee"-ful news: Darren Criss is going on tour this summer! Yes, your small-screen crush with the pretty pipes is coming to a city near you. Try and breathe, OK?
The Fox star will kick off the Listen Up tour on May 29 in San Francisco (his hometown), making stops in Dallas, Nashville and New York, among others over a two-month period. Darren tweeted out the news sharing that the trek will include, “Full band. New music. Old music. Let's do this. #DarrenCrissListenUp.” It wraps up on June 30 in Maryland.
Looking for more details about the summer outing? Well, according to Billboard, the tour will be in support of his forthcoming debut album, set for release sometime this year. On select dates, Darren will be joined by fellow singer/songwriter Theo Katzman.
Yes, this post confirms that we here at Hollywood Crush can find any holiday to celebrate the hotness of Hollywood’s hunks (did you see yesterday's Earth Day post?). So, in honor of William Shakespeare’s birthday, we've rounded up some of the greatest men to grace the silver screen in adaptations of the Bard’s greatest masterpieces. Sonnets and steamy make-out sessions with hot babes: we think we might be on to something.
Leonardo DiCaprio, "Romeo + Juliet"
We probably only need to point out the aquarium scene as evidence to why Leo is so delicious in the classic '90s flick, directed by "The Great Gatsby" helmer Baz Luhrmann. Leo’s often-replicated floppy haircut, his boyish good looks and the way he wears a Hawaiian shirt is so hot that it’s no wonder Juliet defied a family feud to make out with him in a pool.
The CW's "90210" is nearing the end of its five-year run on the small screen. With the show's May 13 finale getting close, we here at Hollywood Crush needed some details about how it's all going to come to an end. So when we caught up with Robbie Jones recently, we asked what we should expect.
"Well, I think there’s gonna be some surprise twists that people won’t see coming,” the "Temptation" star told MTV News about saying goodbye to the show. “I don’t want to give it away, but it should be great. I think the fans will really appreciate the ending. I think so; I think the ending will kind of bring closure to a lot of things and answer some questions for people."
Ashley Tisdale is ready for the world to end. And, if it has to happen, at least she’s in interesting company. The singer/actress will join Nicolas Cage in the dystopian drama “Left Behind.” And while fans are used to her making them chuckle, this project will show her stretching another kind of acting muscle.
"I’m super-excited to be doing a movie called 'Left Behind' with Nicolas Cage. I play his daughter, and it’s a drama, so it’s completely different from this,” she said, comparing it to her current role in the comedy “Scary Movie 5.”
