Hollywood Crush has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Mireille EnosUgh, that awkward moment where a brilliant actress is circling one of the movies you're most looking forward to, based on a favorite YA novel—and you're all, "Yaaaaay! She's going to be amazing!" but then you're like, "Except noooooo, because we'll have to watch her die!" That's where we're at this morning with the news that Mireille Enos is eyeing the part of Kat in "If I Stay," the movie based on Gayle Forman's heartbreaking novel of the same name.

Deadline has the dish that the actress, best known for her work on "The Killing," is in talks to play the rockstar mom to main character Mia.

It's not a spoiler to reveal that Kat—along with her husband, Mia's dad—bites the big one pretty much right away; the movie is all about Mia's struggle to make a terrible choice in the wake of the car accident that kills her whole family. If cast, we'll be seeing Mireille mostly in flashbacks as the comatose Mia struggles with the decision to either return to the earthly world and confront her heartbreaking loss, or shuffle off this mortal coil and move on to...well, whatever comes next.

Bella ThorneBella 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 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.

Amir ArisonIf 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.

Natalie MoralesNatalie 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...).

Sigourney WeaverEven though we've got another month yet before "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" has its big theatrical release, it's already full steam ahead for the cast and crew on the sequel, "City of Ashes"—and that, my little leather-clad demon-slaying fanfolk, means casting news. What's the rumor? Oh, just that Hollywood grande dame Sigourney Weaver is on the verge of signing on for a major role in movie No. 2, according to an exclusive scoop from The Hollywood Reporter.

Per the report, Sigourney is eyeing a major role within the league of Shadowhunters: a ruthless leader of the demon-killers' organization whose only desire is vengeance on the man who killed her son. (The official dish doesn't name her character, but fans on the internet are already abuzz with the suggestion that she must be in talks to play Imogen Herondale, also known as the Inquisitor of the Shadowhunters' Clave.)

Rosamund PikeThe "Gone Girl" has been found.

The Hollywood Reporter has the news that "Jack Reacher" actress Rosamund Pike, rumored to be in contention for the role of Amy Dunne, will indeed star opposite Ben Affleck in the big-screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel.

Directed by David Fincher, the film centers around the disappearance of 30-something Amy on her fifth wedding anniversary, with suspicion—and the ensuing media circus—landing on husband Nick's doorstep.

Bella ThorneBecause every young actress is required by law to take at least one role in which she's hunted through a dark house by ghosts, beasts and/or deranged strangers wearing plastic masks, it should come as no surprise that Bella Thorne has added one such thriller to her roster of projects: According to Deadline, the teen star is set to get scream-queeny in a home invasion flick titled, appropriately, "Home Invasion."

The movie will be a new entry into the ever-popular oeuvre that already includes fave horror films like "The Strangers" and "Them", and features Bella as the daughter of a family imprisoned in their home by unknown assailants, who "play a life-and-death game in which the mysterious rules become clear as the night unfolds."

A month after Nat Wolff revealed to Hollywood Crush that he was in contention for another role in the big-screen adaptation of "The Fault in Our Stars" (after having auditioned for the Augustus Waters part), Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that the 18-year-old will indeed play fellow Cancer Kid Support Group member Isaac.

"The Fault in Our Stars," based on the beloved best-seller by John Green, will be the second film Nat has worked on with director Josh Boone, following the romantic drama "Stuck in Love." And as I noted at the time of the flick's limited release, Nat's performance as sensitive teen Rusty was not only a standout but made me curious as to what he could do with the part of Isaac, an even more vulnerable teen fumbling his way through heartbreak.

Rosamund PikeWith Ben Affleck maybe, possibly on board to play the loose-moraled and long-suffering husband in "Gone Girl," it's become that much more important that producers find the right woman to play the, erm, complex role of Amy, his mysteriously missing wife. And with that in mind, here's a little tidbit of info that'll make everyone go HMMMM: The Hollywood Reporter has heard whispers that Rosamund Pike, whose illustrious career has thus far included roles as everything from a Bond Girl to a Bennett daughter, is the latest name to surface in connection with the part.

"Gone Girl" is one of the most-anticipated book-to-film projects in the pipeline, with David Fincher directing the adaptation of Gillian Flynn's massive bestselling novel. But not only is it going to take some creativity to translate the novel's diary-style format into a big-screen narrative, this one comes with the added challenge of needing a leading lady with a very particular set of skills. (No spoilers, but it might tell you something that both Charlize Theron and Reese Witherspoon have been people's best guesses for who might get picked.)

RavenswoodThere's drama afoot in "Ravenswood"! Although the new spin-off series from "Pretty Little Liars" won't be making its way to television until this fall, the show is already making the sort of big, bold move that would ordinarily be reserved for a cliffhanger finale, the sort that has everybody yelling about it on the internet within 60 seconds of the credits rolling.

Here's the dish: According to The Hollywood Reporter, leading lady Elizabeth Whitson has quietly bowed out and made tracks, leaving the show and her role as Olivia to Merritt Patterson, who was originally on board in the role of Olivia's BFF Tess.
