"The Vampire Diaries" gave us the gorgeous girl power BFF trio of Elena, Caroline and Bonnie. Could another crew of attractive supernatural women be forming a BFF trio of their own down in New Orleans?
It's not easy for Original sibling Rebekah Mikaelson to make friends, but her undead blood quickly warmed to Hayley, the werewolf bad girl who is carrying Klaus Mikaelson's seemingly impossible vampire-werewolf hybrid child. The two met only recently on "The Originals," but Claire Holt and Phoebe Tonkin were costars on a show in Australia and neighbors in Los Angeles.
That undeniable friend chemistry is evident onscreen. This exclusive photo from tonight's brand new episode, "Sinners and Saints," boasts Rebekah and Claire looking their usual deadly serious/drop dead gorgeous selves, joined by local witch Sophie Deveraux.
If your big plans for Halloween involved dressing up as this year's arguably biggest pop-cultural flashpoint, then we're sorry to tell you that Paris Hilton might have stolen your thunder. The hotel heiress has already celebrated her Halloween, and she did it dressed up as Miley Cyrus on the night of her famous performance at the VMAs. (Couples who planned to pay homage to Miley's duet with Robin Thicke, you're safe; Paris opted for the mouse-face leotard, not the flesh-toned latex bikini.)
Meanwhile, those still looking for costume inspiration should definitely take a peek at our pics of Hollywood Halloweenies. Paris wasn't the only celeb who was out trick-or-treating this weekend; Naya Rivera went around the world as a sexy Carmen Sandiego, Fergie and Josh Duhamel opted for a creepy-sexy couples getup, Lea Michele looked every inch a Bavarian princess in a short skirt and tight corset, and Ke$ha took a selfie before finishing off her cozy skeleton costume with a mask.
The countdown to "Coven" is on! In just two days, we'll all be transported to a witchy wonderland via the third season of "American Horror Story"—and this weekend, Hollywood got a head start on their horrorshow with a big, fancy premiere for the cast, crew and celebrity fans alike. The usual suspects were all there, including Taissa Farmiga, Sarah Paulson, and the series' resident heartthrob Evan Peters accompanied by his co-star and ladyfriend Emma Roberts, but there was also a bonus show by a bunch of "Glee" cast members who came to support showrunner Ryan Murphy.
Among the McKinley High students who stayed out past curfew to celebrate "AHS": Jenna Ushkowitz, who looked very demure in a simple black dress...until she turned around and showed off a decidedly daring back. Magic!
If the first set of stills from the upcoming "Pretty Little Liars" spin-off "Ravenswood" are any indication, Caleb will spend plenty of time haunting the dead when the series debuts on October 22 on ABC Family.
To wit, here he is with ally Miranda (played by Nicole Gale Anderson), investigating a headstone in the cemetery. (We're guessing it's the same marker that bares Caleb's old-timey likeness, featured in the trailer released earlier this week.)
There are 57 days left until "Catching Fire" hits theaters! And you know what that means: It's time to start counting down 'til the big premiere (in the classic manner of "Major League"), by peeling little jigsaw-puzzle pieces of clothing off of a life-sized cardboard cutout of Finnick Odair every day, so that he'll be fully nude come November 22! ...Oh, and it also means that brand new glimpses at the movie are making their way onto the internet, where we can ooh and ahh over them to our little hearts' content. In short, we've added a whopping 20 new images from the film our gallery of stills. Exciting!
Needless to say, those early drool-worthy shots of Sam Claflin as Finnick are still there for your viewing pleasure—but there's also much more, including several pics of the Tributes in training for the Quarter Quell, a handful of new Effie Trinket ensembles to make the Capitol fashionistas go crazy, Katniss in a variety of Victory Tour shots and one truly glamorous photo of Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman with a sky-high lilac pompadour. (Hairspiration, anyone?) Go on, take a gander! But then come right back, because we're peeling the jigsaw piece off Finnick's left bicep and you must be here to witness it.
The annual "Pretty Little Liars" Halloween special has taken us on many a wild ride—whether via flashback or deadly locomotive—and this year's episode, "Grave New World," will be no different, as Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hanna descend upon nearby Ravenswood to find their maybe-not-dead friend Alison. And they're doing it in high style, evidenced by a slew of new stills recently released by ABC Family.
Draped in Victorian attire, the little liars crash the Ravenswood Founders Day Celebration after finding a clue in A's lair. But without knowing who their greatest nemesis truly is (Ezra!), they may end up leading him straight to the person he wants to find (and destroy?) most. (Though, we've got to admit, he does look quite dashing in a uniform...)
What happens after that "happy dagger" finds its rusty sheath in the doomed guts of one Juliet Capulet? Everyone into the hot tub, that's what! Last night marked the big premiere of "Romeo and Juliet," starring Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld as the film's titular teenage lovers—and after a well-received screening of Shakespeare's tale of romantic drama, deaths and double suicide, the real fun started in earnest with everyone looking lovely (and very much alive).
The afterparty was a who's who of young Hollywood A-listers: Hailee and Douglas, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ed Westwick. There was even a surprise appearance by Taylor Swift, who showed up in a cream-colored floral frock and cozied up to Hailee for a glamorous selfie.
If you can't find Hanna or Emily in Rosewood, you might want to look on the dance floor. A trio of "Pretty Little Liars" stopped by "Dancing With the Stars" recently to cheer on cast mate Brant Daugherty—and Shay Mitchell posted the Instagram to prove it.
The actor has been rumba-ing with pro Peta Murgatroyd and doing quite well! Rosewood should be proud!
The shirtless boys of summer are all gone back to school—and good riddance, because there's a whole new class of fine-looking gentlemen who need your attention right now. Yep, we're talking about the fresh crop of faces on this year's new fall shows, which feature the nicest collection of sexy men you've never seen before. And if you're looking to pick a favorite, may we suggest you choose from this list of five definitive hotties? With men like these to snuggle up with during primetime, you won't need to leave your house until spring.
The man: Charles Michael Davis, 34
The show: "The Originals" on The CW
The role: Marcel, the HVIC (hot vampire in charge) of New Orleans
The random bit of trivia that makes him that much more interesting: CMD got his start as a model in ad campaigns for Foot Locker and Nike, which tells you all you need to know about the qualities of his physique.
There's just one thing more fun than a sneaky, peeky preview of new CW spin-off series "The Originals"...and that's a sneaky, peeky preview of new CW spin-off series "The Originals" in which all the men are dressed in super-sexy 1800s garb. Joseph Morgan and Charles Michael Davis wearing ruffly shirts, open at the throat to expose some beefy manflesh? Yes, please, thank you, and goodnight: We're going to go enjoy an, ahem, better look at these stills in a more private location.
For the uninitiated, "The Originals" takes place in "The Vampire Diaries" universe, exploring the sordid, sexy backstories of the series' original Mikaelson vampires. And in this peep at the second episode, titled "House of the Rising Son," we're promised a long, interesting look at the family's dynamics dating back to the early 19th century—when Klaus was still a bad, bad boy, Rebekah was still frustrated by her brother's troublemaking ways and Marcel was still a stone fox with a penchant for shirtlessness and swordplay.
