"Vampire Diaries" fans weren't the only ones caught off guard by Hayley's unexpected pregnancy, revealed recently during the back-door pilot for "The Originals." To wit, the werewolf's real-life alter ego, Phoebe Tonkin, was just as surprised when she was handed a copy of the script.
"It was definitely left field," she told Hollywood Crush at The CW Upfronts on Thursday. "I didn't expect that to be the big plot twist of the pilot at all. I spent a lot of time before that thinking, 'What could it be? What could the show be about?' And when I read that I was like, 'That's good, Julie [Plec]. That's a good one.' It's cool. It just kind of changes the tone of the show a lot."
As to how Hayley will fit into the Mikaelson clan as the mother of Klaus' child, Hayley wasn't certain, but she did acknowledge that the Originals have a lot to lose if things go poorly.
May the mascara be ever in your favor?
If you want to replicate the crazybananapants looks of the Capitol's classiest citizens, you need look no further than your corner drugstore. Lionsgate and CoverGirl announced today that "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and the venerable makeup brand are entering into the most beautiful of alliances.
Check it: Not only were CoverGirl cosmetics used on set to create eye-popping Panem peepers and pouts, but the brand is launching a line called—fittingly—the Capitol Collection, sometime this fall.
Following tonight's season four finale of "The Vampire Diaries," Mystic Falls will be short one befanged family: namely, the Originals who've scored their own spin-off series debuting this fall. But that's not to say there may not be a few loose ends as the Mikaelsons move to the Big Easy. Like, for example, the budding relationship between Klaus and Caroline.
When we caught up with stars Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies at today's CW Upfront, we asked how (and if) their romantic entanglements will conclude with tonight's episode.
"I don't know what's going to happen," Joseph admitted of his character's relationship with a certain Vampire Barbie. "I know that in 'The Vampire Diaries' finale, we get a little screen time tonight. There's something of a resolve there."
But, according to Joseph, we can't rule out a future Vampire Exchange Program between Mystic Falls and New Orleans.
If you've been craving a bit more "Sex" in your "Carrie Diaries," we have some good news indeed: Carrie Bradshaw is set to meet her lustiest of ladyfriends, Miss Samantha Jones, during the second season of the CW series! The network made the announcement today as part of their Upfront Presentation in New York City.
The upcoming season kicks off during the summer of 1985 and finds Carrie living in the downtown loft of her Interview magazine boss, Larissa, following some serious heartbreak back at home. (Thanks a lot, Sebastian!) We assume it's during these warm weather months in Manhattan that Carrie happens upon her soon-to-be BFF, who—as you'll recall from the HBO series—is a few years older than the rest of the ladies, which means she could be a college student interning in the city, or even a recent graduate getting her footing in the high-pressure world of PR.
"Ominous" doesn't even begin to describe the hot-off-the-presses poster pegged to the upcoming sixth season of HBO's "True Blood."
The latest bit of promo for the upcoming season (a slew of stills debuted last week), the gauzy one-sheet features a befanged one (we'll call him Generic Vampire #5) writhing in pain with the tagline, "No one lives forever," matter-of-factly printed beneath his snarling countenance.
Now, the body count over the course of the last five seasons of "True Blood" would probably make even the most money-hungry mortician cry mercy, but there's something about the tone of that simple declaration that makes us think someone major may be kicking the bucket this season. Or maybe we're just paranoid. All we have to say, "True Blood" producers, is if you take Alexander Skarsgård away from us, well, you won't like the consequences.
It's Chloe Moretz's year, and we're just living in it! The 16-year-old not only has two highly anticipated movies ("Kick-Ass 2" and "Carrie") coming out in the latter half of 2013, but she also covers this month's Nylon magazine—the annual issue dedicated to all things Young Hollywood.
The starlet, along with her equally talented (not to mention easy-on-the-eyes) peers, took to Tinseltown's Roosevelt Hotel last night to celebrate the latest edition.
The cover girl looked sweet (yet spicy!) in a form-fitting bubblegum-colored Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony dress paired with wine-colored heels.
Law school dropout. Drink-slinger. Zombie novelist. True American. Nick Miller is a lot of things, but "suave" certainly isn't one of them. Thankfully, that doesn't seem to matter much to love interest Jessica Day, who finally had a sleepover with her bumbling—albeit well-meaning—roommate.
Nevertheless, when the man behind the "New Girl"—actor Jake Johnson—stopped by the MTV Newsroom recently to chat about the season finale (airing tonight on Fox), and we just had to ask him to play a game of "What Would Nick Miller Do?" to find out just how awkward things could get.
From facing the Zombie Apocalypse to being Catfished, we put Nick Miller in some supremely strange situations (so, like, just another Tuesday, amirite?). Perhaps unsurprisingly, both of the aforementioned scenarios prompted answers involving Schmidt.

Is it getting hot in here? A month to the day after "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" trailer blazed at the MTV Movie Awards, a new poster for the dystopian sequel is burning up the internet (via The Hunger Games Instagram).
The one-sheet depicts Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) on the edge of a precipice (metaphor!), with signature bow and arrow in hand and a fluffy Mockingjay-shaped cloud at her back. The tagline atop the poster reads: "The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand."
Bella Thorne isn't the only Disney starlet to "Shake It Up" with a new book. While the 15-year-old takes us on a magical ride, co-star and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Zendaya will get real with an advice tome to be published by Disney-Hyperion Books.
"Between U and Me: How to Rock Your Tween Years with Style and Confidence" sounds a bit like the 16-year-old's Pinterest on steroids, with photos, anecdotes recipes, playlists and doodles populating the pages (plus advice from her team of experts, including mom and dad—awwwwww!).
Remember last week when we relayed the rumor that "Anna Karenina" director Joe Wright was circling the big-screen adaptation of E.L. James' best-seller "Fifty Shades of Grey"? Well, that's all the chatter ended up being: a rumor.
Deadline reports that Joe does not have time in his schedule for a raunchy romp with billionaire Christian Grey and his naive paramour Anastasia Steele. And so, the list of Hollywood heavyweights who won't be involved with the project continues to grow.
We already knew Stephen Amell was out as Christian. And Emma Watson was out as Ana, as was Keira Knightley. And let's not even get started about the Angelina Jolie speculation.
