No super-sleuthing skills required: Kristen Bell is back as Veronica Mars, and all the photographic evidence is on Twitter!
The 32-year-old took to the social networking site yesterday to share clues of her return as the titular private investigator, including a snap of herself festooned in all manner of "Veronica Mars" swag. (Seriously, send us that bust if you ever get tired of having yourself as company, Kristen. It'd look really nice on the bed snuggled up with our Edward Cullen body pillow...)
In another image, Kristen's seen getting in a little cardio in between takes. "A break on the #VeronicaMarsMovie set for me. So obviously, I'm trying out this weighted hula hoop," she wrote.
Despite more than a month of production deep inside the cinematic labyrinth of "The Maze Runner," another casting announcement for the dystopian drama has founds its way to the wire.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Patricia Clarkson has joined the cast of the film in a pivotal role. (One, it should be added, is a spoiler in and of itself if you haven't read the James Dashner novel upon which the film is based, so we'll let you decide whether to click to the full report or not. But suffice it to say, SHE'S IN THE MOVIE.)
"The Maze Runner" follows Thomas (played by "Teen Wolf" star Dylan O'Brien), who wakes up in an elevator with a gnarly case of amnesia. But that's just par for the course for the boys who arrive in the Glade, a large enclosure surrounded by a deadly maze. No one knows why they're there, or how to get out—only that they're being watched.
FROM MTV NEWS: Hit-Girl is hitting it again in "Kick-Ass 2," the upcoming sequel to the 2010 super-hero movie, and MTV News was lucky enough to get an EXCLUSIVE invitation to the set! We witnessed all manner of ass-kickery, to be sure, but as star Chloe Grace Moretz told us, this second installment (out August 16) has plenty of pathos too.
"You see this new evolution of Mindy Macready and Dave Lizewski, and you see this amazing relationship that they get together with," the actress teased. "It's a beautiful story. There's even more heart to it than there was in the last one."
Head over to MTV News for the full story from the 'Kick-Ass 2' set!
If Stone Cold Action Star is your favorite flavor of Taylor Lautner, you'll want to keep an eye out for the actor's upcoming thriller "Tracers," due for a 2014 release. The film stars Taylor as a bike messenger named Cam, who after crashing into a beautiful stranger is lured into the intriguing world of parkour.
But let's set aside visions of a rebounding Taylor Lautner for a moment to focus on what really matters: the romance. Specifically, which pretty young thing will play the hunk's lady love? That would be Marie Avgeropoulos.
FROM MTV NEWS: Where Emma Watson goes, magic seems to follow. The 23-year-old actress, who has been racking up a variety of roles since her graduation from Hogwarts, is once again eyeing a fantasy franchise.
Variety reports that Emma will re-team with her "Harry Potter" producer David Heyman for the big-screen adaptation of Erika Johansen's soon-to-be-published novel "Queen of the Tearling," the first of a proposed trilogy.

"Veronica Mars" fans have some casting news to celebrate. According to the show’s creator, Rob Thomas, a bunch of familiar faces have just signed on to the project, set to begin production next week.
Per an email (via E! News) sent out to the folks who donated to the Kickstarter campaign, Tina Majorino will be back to play Mac once again.
"I really wanted Tina in 'Veronica Mars.' To say I wrote Mac with Tina in mind would be an understatement. I wrote Mac for Tina, and Tina only,” Rob said in the email. "Veronica needed a female friend, and a Q to her Bond. Tina felt like just the sort of girl that Veronica would like and respect. I couldn't be more pleased that she'll be with us for the movie."
Tomorrow marks the long-awaited debut of Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring"—which, as we all know, is inspired by the very weird, super-sensational drama of the real-life teenage thieves known as the Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch. And if you're not up to speed on the true story behind the film (or the real, actual girl who uttered Emma Watson's iconic line: "I want to rob!"), then fret not, young grasshopper, because we've got your pre-viewing study guide to Everything Essential About the Real-Life Bling Ring. Read on!
How is Chris Colfer spending his "Glee" summer hiatus? In France, apparently! The 23-year-old took to Twitter today to share a snap of himself posing with an ad for his film "Struck by Lightning," which he spotted in Paris.
The movie (which Chris wrote and stars in) follows his character Carson's pursuit to gain admittance to his dream college—a scheme that includes blackmailing his classmates into writing for his literary magazine. "Struck by Lightning" hit American theaters earlier this year and makes its French debut at the Champs-Elysées Film Festival today.
Forget Paris Hilton—if we could spend quality time in any celebrity's closet (and sneak away with a few souvenirs) it'd be "Bling Ring" actress Emma Watson's. The starlet, along with her co-stars in the robbery romp, walked the red carpet at New York's Paris Theatre last night for a screening of their film, and—no surprise!—stole the style show.
Emma went dark (perhaps in keeping with a burglar's color of choice?) in a black V-neck frock, accessorized by a gold clutch and striped pumps. She kept her look sleek and simple with a red lip and a slicked-back updo. Co-star Taissa Farmiga once again opted for a lace number, though this black tea-length Marchesa dress upped the elegant factor by about 10 compared to the blue mini-dress she wore to the L.A. premiere.
Disney's live-action spin on "Cinderella" is shaping up to be quite the "Downton Abbey" reunion. Sophie McShera, who plays oh-so-sweet kitchen maid Daisy on the soapy PBS drama, is in talks to join the movie as one of Cinderella’s stepsisters.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sophie could potentially join "Downton Abbey" co-star Lily James, who has been cast as the titular princess, in the Kenneth Branagh-directed movie.
"The Borgias" actress Holliday Grainger has been cast as Cinderella’s other wicked stepsister. And, considering how sweet Daisy is on “Downton Abbey,” seeing Sophie flex her bad-girl muscles in this latest spin on the classic fairy tale could prove quite exciting for fans of the period drama.
