Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller may just be the Hepburn and Tracy of the Millennial Generation (Google it, kids). They'll star in two films together over the next year: this weekend's "The Spectacular Now" and 2014's dystopian drama "Divergent." And though the two couldn't seem more different, Miles told MTV News that they actually mesh quite well.
"We are different," he agreed. "When we first met, the only thing she'd ever seen me in was 'Rabbit Hole,' so she was expecting this pretty shy, you know, introverted kid, and I came in hot. I think I literally just got back from Vegas. But that's how I met Shailene. And then we had lunch, and afterwards, we talked about GMOs for like an hour. I called up my mom and was like, 'What's up with corn? Why's it so bad?'"
But to hear Miles speak of it, he really does respect the differences between himself and his co-star.
If you have yet to read Rick Yancey's engrossing alien-invasion YA "The 5th Wave," you better get on it quick because the apocalypse waits for no one. Further evidence: The novel's big-screen adaptation has landed itself a talented scriptrix.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Susannah Grant, who recieved an Oscar nomination for the "Erin Brokovich" screenplay, will adapt the novel, which is being produced by Tobey Maguire's production company.
For the uninitiated, "The 5th Wave" is the first in a proposed trilogy and follows 16-year-old Cassie, one of the remaining survivors following an extra-terrestrial attack. All alone, she roams the remains of the Midwest in search of her brother, whom she hopes against hope is still alive after being carted away to supposed safety by a group of soldiers.
Few celebrities have graced the After Hours set more often than Mark Wahlberg, whose film "2 Guns" hits theaters this weekend. So it seemed only natural that when the writing staff of our weekly web series needed a little freshening up, MTV turn to the Academy-Award winning writer of "The Departed."*
Except, well, Mark Wahlberg is one really strange dude. With some really strange ideas. Let's just say our insurance isn't comprehensive enough to cover a segment he pitched called "Tough Guy" that features Taylor Lautner and an aluminum bat. But maybe that won't stop him?
Bella Thorne certainly isn't having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year. Though her Disney series "Shake It Up!" is ending its three-season run, the 16-year-old actress is landing film role after film role. The latest, per The Hollywood Reporter, is a part in the big-screen adaptation of Judith Viorst's classic picture book "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day."
The film stars Ed Oxenbould as the titular character, plus Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner as his parents. Bella will play the role of Alexander's brother's girlfriend.
If you were worried that Christopher Abbott's departure from the third season of "Girls" would leave the HBO series with a dearth of men, worry no more! Another thespian of the male persuasion has been added to the cast.
Per Deadline, "Zero Hour" actor Amir Arison has landed a recurring role as Kevin, a co-worker of Hannah's...and that's all we know. (Though we'll wager he won't wear white to work or dump the cafe's trash in a neighboring garbage can...)
Amir is the second young guy to join "Girls" after "Boardwalk Empire" star Michael Zegen, who landed an unspecified role back in June.
Shailene Woodley's transition from teen soap star to talented thespian will reach another milestone this weekend with the wide release of Sundance darling "The Spectacular Now"—her first film since 2011's critically acclaimed "The Descendants," for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination.
The film co-stars "Footloose" actor Miles Teller as perpetual party animal Sutter Keely, a directionless teen whose life takes a turn when he meets socially awkward Aimee (played by Shailene). At turns light-hearted and heart-breaking, "The Spectacular Now" is one you won't want to miss—especially if you're a lover of all things YA. Here's why:
Natalie Morales is moving from Beverly Hills to Brooklyn as she joins the cast of HBO's "Girls" for a third season guest spot.
The actress, whom you may recognize from her turn as Liam's stalker (and Annie's shooter) on The CW's "90210," will appear in an episode of the series as "a sweet twentysomething who surrounds herself with artists and has a desire to save the world," according to TVLine. Little else is known about her do-gooder character (including whether she will or won't woe one of the "Girls" guys...).
Darren Criss and Lucy Hale are about to Hang Ten together—and, no, this isn't for a bizarre "Glee"-"Pretty Little Liars" summer crossover episode set at Malibu Sands Beach Club (but oh, how we wish!). No, the two TV stars will help hand out surfboards as part of their co-hosting duties at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards!
"Excited to announce I'll be cohosting this yrs Teen Choice Awards w/ the talented & charming @DarrenCriss ! See ya there !" Lucy tweeted this afternoon, followed by an Instagram of the two hamming it up with one of the ceremony's over-sized statuettes.
The show has a history of pairing our favorite stars on stage: Last year featured Darren's "Glee" co-star Kevin McHale and songstress Demi Lovato as emcees.
The Mikaelsons will be settling into New Orleans earlier than expected!
The CW announced today that "The Originals" will debut two weeks early on a special night and time: Thursday, October 3 at 9 p.m. ET following "The Vampire Diaries" premiere (which, itself, is bowing a week early). "The Originals" will then move to its usual Tuesday time slot (8 p.m. ET) on October 8.
The schedule switcheroo does mean a later debut for the network's royal series "Reign," which will be pushed back to Thursday, October 17 at 9 p.m. ET after "The Vampire Diaries."
"Kick-Ass 2" actress Chloe Moretz may just be the busiest teen in Hollywood right now. In addition to her ass kickery in the upcoming superhero sequel (out August 16), she has a bevy of projects in the works, including the big-screen adaptation of Gayle Forman's young-adult novel "If I Stay" and the Kristen Stewart-, Juliette Binoche-starring "Sils Maria." It was the latter that Chloe opened up about to MTV News' Josh Horowitz.
"'Sils Maria,' it's a really cool film," Chloe enthused. "I'm actually starting that really soon. I get to go to Switzerland...and Leipzig in Germany." (We can only assume it's no coincidence Chloe is traveling to the land of Swiss chocolate with "Chocolat" star Juliette. Use that knowledge wisely, girl...)
