The Teen Choice Awards and "Pretty Little Liars" are total BFFs. Not only did star Lucy Hale emcee the proceedings (alongside "Glee" cutie Darren Criss), but the ABC Family drama took home an awesome seven surfboards, including one for Choice TV Show: Drama.
With the series just weeks away from its summer finale, we had to ask the stars what to expect in the upcoming episodes. And though they were a bit shy with the spoilers (you'd think A was lurking about or something!), Janel Parrish and Keegan Allen did spill a bit of knowledge about the show's annual October special.
"I don't know if we can really say too much ... I don't know how much we can really say about what's coming up. I know that the Halloween episode is shocking, thrilling, amazing, and it kinda leads into a little bit more than the fans would bargain for," Keegan teased.
By now you've probably heard the news that Brit band Coldplay will contribute a new song, "Atlas," to "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" soundtrack, which will be available for digital download on August 26. This marks the first time the rockers have recorded an original song for a film (though you've probably heard their music in many others, including "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "Garden State").
The announcement got us thinking about which other artists we'd like to see on the upcoming album. My first inclination was towards MS MR, whose epic "Bones" was memorably featured in the season three trailer for "Game of Thrones." The rest of the duo's debut album, Secondhand Rapture, is equally grand, suitable for the gravitas of "Catching Fire."
If you haven't bought your ticket for "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" yet, it's no real spoiler to tell you that our titular demigod deals with feelings of self-doubt in this follow-up to "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief." After all, Percy must prove he's no one-trick pony, while being repeatedly one-upped by fellow demigod Clarisse (played by "The Hunger Games" actress Leven Rambin). Can Percy live up to the legendary destiny that awaits him?
Surprisingly, in real life, star Logan Lerman told us that he doesn't believe in destiny. Or at least a concept of destiny that doesn't involve a lot of work.
"I believe in making your own destiny through luck, which is preparation and opportunity," Logan explained. "So, you know, you've gotta work hard. You've gotta do your job."
Perhaps you've heard the hubbub surrounding singer/actress Selena Gomez's revelation that "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" star Logan Lerman is her celebrity crush. And perhaps you've heard Logan's humble response, which has been along the lines of "I'm totes flattered!" (exclamation and abbreve added for emphasis). But we doubt you've heard what Logan told us when we offered to set him up with the 21-year-old pop star recently. (We are MTV, after all. We've got connections!)
"I'll give you guys a ring as my dating agency," Logan joked good-naturedly to our offer. "I gotta get off JDate and gotta start moving to MTV for my dating services."
They'll play on-screen love interests Clary Fray and Jace Wayland in the upcoming adaptation of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," but off-screen, Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower have parted ways, according to a report from Us Weekly.
The pair are currently on the publicity trail for their urban fantasy film, which opens August 21, and as an "insider" spilled to the magazine, the two "remain very good friends." (Which should hopefully ease any awkwardness spending all those hours together promoting the movie and filming a sequel...)
If we had to guess the theme for Dior Homme's new campaign featuring "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson, we'd go with something along the lines of Flirting With Architecture While Looking Pensive In Expensive Outerwear.
The fragrance brand has released yet another photo tease (via its Twitter account) of the 27-year-old, and yet again, he's atop an edifice looking deep in thought. (Not to mention, looking deep in dreaminess.)
Prepare your seraph blade, Shadowhunters—the demons are coming!
An extended clip from the upcoming "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" has debuted on Yahoo! Movies, showing just what kind of ooey-gooey creatures Clary Fray and co. will have to face in the August 21 release.
Snippets of the scene have already found their way into previous trailers: Clary confronts Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower) about his otherworldly abilities, while mom Jocelyn (Lena Headey) faces home invaders who are after a whole lot more than her big-screen TV or gold jewelry. It's then that Jocelyn calls Clary, warning her not to come home. Of course, she doesn't heed her mom's advice, and comes face to face with a dangerous demon.
"Kick-Ass 2" actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been something of a magnet for casting rumors of late. In addition to speculation surrounding his maybe/perhaps/potential casting as Quicksilver in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," he's also been submitting to speculation that he could play damaged billionaire Christian Grey in the big-screen adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" to be directed by wife Sam Taylor-Johnson. But matrimony does not a movie role make—though Aaron did confirm that he's really happy for his lady love.
"I think Sam is an incredible director, and I'd love to work with her again," Aaron enthused of the director, whom he met on the set of "Nowhere Boy." "But the film is all about casting and I'm anything but Christian Grey. I'm super-excited and thrilled for her. I think even the prospect of her doing it is really great for [the studio]. She adds an element of class to it."
Do not adjust your computer monitors: That is indeed "The Mortal Instruments" author Cassandra Clare flaunting cat ears. And, no, that is not her usual authorial garb. Like many writers before her (think: Stephenie Meyer of "Twilight" fame), Cassandra is making a cameo in the big-screen iteration of her best-seller.
When we chatted with the author in between takes on the Toronto set, she admitted that even though she grew up in the film industry, the whole experience was still hard to wrap her head around.
"'Surreal' is the word," she said. "My husband says it's like being at Disneyland where all of the rides are based on my book. It has gone through a long process."
But there was one vivid moment Cassandra recalled where it all started feeling very real.
Dearly departed "Glee" star Cory Monteith, who died last month at the age of 31, will be memorialized during the October 10 episode of Fox's song-and-dance series when it returns this fall. But in the meantime, the network has released an In Memoriam video—a brief montage recalling the actor's too brief stint on the show.
Additionally, Emmy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich told Deadline last week that a tribute is in the works for the awards ceremony airing September 22. Ehrlich said everything is in the early stages, but that it would be "something that reflects an homage."
