If you're a fan of "Glee" newbie Jacob Artist, who plays bad boy Jake Puckerman on the Fox song and dance series, get your pom poms ready to cheer him in his latest endeavor. The actor has landed a role in the film "White Bird," opposite Shailene Woodley, Variety reports.
"White Bird," which will mark Jacob's feature film debut, centers around Shailene's troubled character whose life unravels after her mother (played by Eva Green) disappears. Jacob will play Shailene's college boyfriend.
For its part, McKinley High has proven fertile grounds for the next crop of film stars. In fact, Jacob will be one of several "Glee" stars headlining your local cineplex's marquee. Let's take a look at the line-up:
It looks like "Boy Meets World" spin-off "Girl Meets World" is going to be one man short.
Actor Rider Strong, who for seven seasons played Cory Matthews' bad-boy best friend Shawn Hunter, took to his website today to let fans know that he has no "official involvement" with the Disney Channel show, which will feature original stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel.
"I am extremely happy for Ben and Danielle to be able to continue the story. At this point, I have no official involvement in 'Girl Meets World,'" Rider wrote. "There might be a chance to see some of the 'BMW' cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years. But 'Girl Meets World' will be, and I think it should be, its own show. It will be about Cory and Topanga, their daughter, and a new set of characters. It’s the next generation."
Fair enough, but we can't help but wonder if there can be a Cory without a Shawn—and if it will be a Cory worth caring about. After all, Topanga may be his soul mate, but Shawn's rebellious yet laid-back attitude always seemed a better foil for Cory's high-strung neuroticism.

You read it here first! You’re going to see a whole new side of "Step Up Revolution" hottie Ryan Guzman as he gets ready to shoot the new MTV film "Made 2: Ladies Man!"
The teen comedy centers around a nerdy college freshman who decides to revamp his look and become a ladies man. While Guzman does not play the freshman, he does play the female lead’s "douche bag" boyfriend, a role the self-proclaimed "romantic" has never taken on.
Besides the fact that this is a homegrown film for us, we are already going gaga over the fact that Ryan will be channeling his inner stripper in a dance sequence added into the film because of his talented repertoire. "It’ll be more of a 'Magic Mike' kind of feel to it, though, so it’s a little bit more stripping with hard choreography,” Ryan told Hollywood Crush.
FROM MTV MOVIES BLOG: Magical tattoos are taking over the cineplex! First up is "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," based on Cassandra Clare's best-selling urban fantasy series, in which special markings known as runes provide Shadowhunters with protection and heightened abilities. That 2013 release will be followed by ink-based actioner "Tatua," which just cast "Twilight" star Kellan Lutz as its lead!
The film, based on a concept by comic book creators Paul Jenkins and Rob Prior, centers around a man who has a rare blood type that allows him to be tattooed with weaponry designs—which he then pulls off of his skin and uses against his foes. (Crazy, right!?)
This all raises one big question: What tattoos should Kellan's assassin get? MTV Movies Blog has the answer!

It should come as no surprise that the cutie casting announcements keep coming in for The CW's "Sex and the City" prequel "The Carrie Diaries," which will make its fashionable debut come January 14.
The latest paramour to potentially sweep Carrie Bradshaw (played by AnnaSophia Robb) off her feet is Richard Kohnke, who's been cast in the multiple-episode role of George Silver. And it sounds as though this dashing suitor could be the retro spirit animal of one Chuck Bass. See if any of this rings a
butler's bell: George is described in Deadline's report as "a handsome, charming and entitled Upper East Side kid with a confident, seen-it-all attitude who is taking a gap year between prep school and college."

One door closes but another door opens—even when that "door" is a coffin lid!
OK, so the vampires of Mystic Falls don't really sleep in coffins (though they do often sleep with each other! Zing!), but we really wanted to make that sentence happen. Even as "The Twilight Saga" draws to a close in theaters, one vamp veteran is headed to the other supernatural romance based on a series of books, "The Vampire Diaries."
Charlie Bewley, known to Team Edward and Team Jacob members alike as the villainous Volturi Demetri, is headed to "The Vampire Diaries" in this season's 13th episode, E! News reports. The 31-year-old London-born actor will play Vaughn, whom casting folks described as "ruggedly handsome, charming, built and tough as hell." The E! News report also noted that an actor with an accent was preferred for the role. Perhaps he'll play one of The Five? Hmm.
With a sequel to this year's "The Amazing Spider-Man" officially in the works, there's been plenty of speculation of late as to which young actor will play the next film's most important supporting role: that of Harry Osborn, the moneyed young playboy who serves as Peter Parker's ultimate frenemy. And as of today, our enlightened friends over at MTV Splash Page have a roundup of the latest boys to be bandied about as possible picks for the part.
Because we love a good superhero movie as much as the next guy, we're totally psyched to see that the list contains four truly talented actors, any of whom would be terrific as Harry O. But because we are not, in fact, guys, we also have to point out that Splash Page has failed to discuss the most important component of the casting decision: Which of these guys is the hottest hottie? But don't worry, y'all; we're on it, with a highly scientific ratings system designed to determine their eligibility on a number of fronts, tallied to reveal which of these dudes is the dreamiest dreamboat ever to sail on the Sea of Sexy Men. So without further ado, let's take the measurements of...
Rich-boy hair: 8
Soulful eyes: 9
Butt shapeliness: 4 (speculative)
Can he make entitled whining look sexy? (+5 points): yes
Bonus points: +1 for artfully placed moles, +10 for also being Finnick Odair.
With actress Shailene Woodley aboard as tough-as-nails Tris in the big-screen adaptation of "Divergent," casting directors are now sounding the whistle for her hunky, dystopian love interest. And, according to Deadline, four(!) actors are vying for the role of Dauntless instructor Four.
The highest-profile name among them is Lucas Till, who played Havok in the superhero flick "X-Men: First Class." Lucas has had a number of brushes with hot YA film properties—he reportedly auditioned for the role of everyone's favorite baker boy Peeta Mellark in "The Hunger Games." This could be the part that finally secures leading-man status for Lucas.
Given its evocative name, it's very appropriate that the upcoming rom-com "Are We Officially Dating?" keeps rounding out its cast with dudes who we'd loooove to date—officially or not, really. We aren't picky.
The movie, which already had snagged Zac Efron in its headline role, has tapped the exquisitely handsome Michael B. Jordan to play another one of the film's three avowed bachelors, who swear they'll stay single forever and ever.. and then, of course, promptly fall in love with three lovely girls whom their stupid bro pact prevents them from actually dating, and hijinks ensue.
As Bella's long-awaited swan song, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," heads into theaters next week, the vamp's real-life alter ego, Kristen Stewart, is busy filling up her post-saga schedule. The latest: The actress is in talks to star alongside Ben Affleck in the con-man movie "Focus," according to Variety.
The story centers on a veteran grifter (Ben) who takes a noob (Kristen) under his law-breaking tutelage.
