Here's the bad news, you guys: This commentary from Jesse Williams on his experience narrating the "Bane Chronicles" audiobook does not include actual live footage of Jesse Williams' beautiful man face. BUT! It includes plenty of Jesse Williams' beautiful man voice—and a super-cute picture of him behind the scenes wearing headphones and a hoodie, so we'll take it.

Jesse is the voice behind the brand new audio release of "The Bane Chronicles: What Really Happened In Peru," and in this clip, he talks about his stint as a narrator, the challenge of trying something new, his great respect for the work of authors Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan, and what he likes best about Magnus Bane.

Jane Austen Goes to HollywoodBy now, the story of Jane Austen's classic novel "Pride and Prejudice" has been told, and re-told so often that one need only say the words "Mr. Darcy" in an English accent to cause uncontrollable swooning on the part of every girl in a five-mile radius. And honestly, we are fatigued. We need a little R&R from all this P&P! Which is why it's so extremely exciting that we've got our grubby little romance-loving mitts on an entirely new re-imagining of a classic Austen tale: an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at the first three chapters of Abby McDonald's new YA novel, "Jane Austen Goes to Hollywood"!

And the Bennett family had better scoot out of the way, because the focus now is on a whole 'nother pair of sisters who are looking for love in all the wrong places. "Jane Austen Goes to Hollywood" is a contemporary retelling of another, equally amazing classic tale by the Edwardian authoress, and just as romantic as ever. (If you need a hint: the drawing room drama has been updated with some modern-day sense and west-coast sensibility, ahem, AHEM.)

Emma Watson and her "Bling Ring" co-stars Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien stopped by MTV last night for the final installment of our Sneak Peek Week, leading up to Sunday's Movie Awards, and instead of pilfering our pockets they actually gifted us with something invaluable: an EXCLUSIVE clip from their upcoming film!

In this sneak peek from the June 14 release, we see the young bandits making themselves comfortable in an unsuspecting celebrity's walk-in closet, swooning over her sparkly frocks and trying on her extravagant furs. But the real jaw-dropper happens in the clip's closing moments as Emma's Nicki takes a pass at stripper pole. It's magical, indeed.

Psst! Come close. We have something to tell you: We've been naughty girls. You see, the cast of "Pitch Perfect" has been meeting at an undisclosed location here in L.A., practicing for what is sure to be an epic performance at this weekend's MTV Movie Awards. And, well, not only did we suss out this secret warehouse...but we slipped in. And watched. And took photographic evidence. And are posting it on the internet for the entire world to see. Take a look for yourself!

So OK, sure, if you don't have the vision of a wild hawk sporting telephoto lenses, you might not be able to make out all the key players, but suffice it to say, we've caught stars Rebel Wilson, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Esther Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Ben Platt and Brittany Snow in all their booty-shaking glory.

Melissa McCarthy brought "The Heat" to MTV last night as part of our Sneak Peek Week leading up to Sunday's Movie Awards ceremony. In addition to a 30-minute interview with our own Josh Horowitz, Melissa and director Paul Feig delivered an EXCLUSIVE clip from the June 28 film, featuring the actress and her co-star Sandra Bullock.

The two play lady law enforcement officers who have very different styles. Yet, they share at least one thing in common: slippery fingers. You see, when an uncooperative witness refuses to give up his intel, he finds himself dangling by his ankles over a balcony. And, well, the women just can't seem to hold on. Click play on the clip above to watch the disastrous results.

Expect Dole stock prices to skyrocket once this little tidbit, courtesy of the raunchy comedy "The To-Do List," gets out.

In an EXCLUSIVE clip from the film—debuted during last night's Sneak Peek Week leading into the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday—Brandy Clark (played by Aubrey Plaza) learns from a women's magazine that drinking pineapple juice will make a man's, um, natural juices, sweeter. So, she sets about getting all the boys on the block to down nature's nectar, to hilarious effect.

The film, which also stars Scott Porter, Rachel Bilson and Donald Glover, hits theaters August 16, and is one you most certainly won't want to miss. If we may be so bold, you'll probably want to put it on your "To-Do List."

It ain't easy being a demigod, amirite? Logan Lerman knows all about the trials and tribulations of the half-blooded, as he reprises his role as the titular hero of "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters."

This time, the teen must contend with Chronos, who's so dastardly that his three sons destroyed him...only for him to rise again and exact revenge. (Oopsies!) The only thing that can save Camp Half-Blood (and, really, the world as we know it), is the legendary Golden Fleece, which must be retrieved from the Sea of Monsters. And though Clarisse (a.k.a. "The Hunger Games" actress Leven Rambin) is tasked with the quest, Percy refuses to be left behind, wrangling Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario), Grover (Brandon T. Jackson) and Tyson (Douglas Smith) into the mission.

You can catch a first look at all the action in the EXCLUSIVE trailer above. And if the clip leaves you ready for even more Percy, be sure to catch Friday's Rated MTV, featuring Logan Lerman!
