If you were a fan of the first "Camp Rock" movie starring the always lovely Demi Lovato and the always adorable Jonas Brothers, you probably don't need much convincing to catch its sequel, "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" when it debuts tonight on Disney Channel. But, the stars of the song-and-dance fest were more than willing to provide a few good reasons to catch the TV movie, when MTV News caught up with them at the flick's New York City premiere.
"We have two camps this time—Camp Rock and Camp Star—and we kind of just battle it out to see who wins," explained star Jasmine Richards. "There's a lot of cool, fun songs and dances."
Were you ever extra-curious about why tomorrow's Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman comedy switched its name from "The Baster" to "The Switch"? We really weren't. The first title elicits a certain imagery Hollywood probably didn't want their viewers to be picturing — and then being put off by — when considering weekend movies.
But Jason wasn't afraid of facing up to the basting process the film teases. He willingly explained how a baster ties in to artificial insemination when MTV News caught up with him recently.
You're welcome for bringing you all a whole slew of "either your movie or something way funnier" posts over the past few weeks. Last week, we asked the cast of "Eat Pray Love" if they preferred Elizabeth Gilbert's mantra over "Jersey Shore's" gym, tanning, laundry." This time, we went a little more serious.
"The Switch," which hits theaters this Friday, is about a man who drunkenly decides to switch the sperm his best friend received from a donor with that of his own. It adds drama for the film, for sure, and hopefully the two main characters end up together, but we decided to ask the cast which bodily fluid donation they thought was sexier in real life: blood or sperm.
The mantra "eat pray love" is what Elizabeth Gilbert strove to live by in her book of the same name, whose film adaptation is hitting theaters tomorrow. But here at MTV, we know of another little mantra people of our generation are coming to live by: "gym tan laundry."
Would it surprise you that the stars of the "Eat Pray Love" — Julia Roberts, Javier Bardem, Billy Crudup and Richard Jenkins — have no idea what GTL stands for, or its origin material? It shouldn't, because the idea of any of the four of them watching "Jersey Shore" just about makes our heads explode.
Scott Pilgrim isn't going to be showing The World how much he loves Ramona Flowers until August 13, but we decided to express our affections for "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" star Mary Elizabeth Winstead a little bit sooner. Hopefully by doing so we won't end up having to fight her long time boyfriend, writer Riley Stearns, for naming her our girl crush of the week!
First known for her performance on the small screen, Mary broke into Hollywood at age 15 by playing recurring character Jessica Bennett on the soap opera "Passions," and then starring in the short-lived werewolf thriller (opposite Paul Wesley, we might add) on the single season of "Wolf Lake."

No one should be surprised that out of all the summer blockbusters, the cast that brought all the right moves to the red carpet was that of "Step Up 3D." Not only does the latest flick of the dance movie franchise step it up to the third dimension, the actors and dancers in the film stepped it up, too, at Monday’s premiere, by revealing their real-life dance moves outside Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre.
One cast member in particular, Alyson Stoner, seems to be dancing the heck out of Hollywood these days. “I’m learning how to do head spins right now,” she said of her go-to move. “So maybe that’s my favorite move of the moment.” Don’t forget to check back with Alyson in September, though, when she appears in “Camp Rock 2.” Her go-to move just might change!
Regardless of your opinion on the supernatural, seeing a movie about a ghost appeals to everyone. There's that whole "suspension of disbelief" thing for the non-believers, and for the believers, well, it's that much more real of a concept. Seeing as "Charlie St. Cloud" stars Zac Efron as a dude who interacts with his younger brother's ghost, we decided to get the stars of the film to weigh in on their otherworldly encounters as they walked the premiere's red carpet last night.
Zac said he falls into the skeptical camp, and doesn't have any ghost stories of his own to share. "I think everyone's had those things they can't necessarily explain at one point or another," he said. "No, I don't have any ghost stories for you."
Leo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's babeness is momentarily overshadowed by the hotness that is Tom Hardy in "Inception." When Christopher Nolan rounded up the cast for this high-stakes, intellectual thriller, he must have been reading our dream journals. Get it? No! It's fine because this week, we name Tom our Hump Day Hottie!
Press play on the video below to see more of Tom, and then keep reading for more details about him!
Vital Stats: This 32-year-old dreamboat grew up in London. He studied at the Drama Centre London before becoming a professional actor. Unfortunately for all of us, he just got engaged to fellow Brit, actress Charlotte Riley. Heart. Breaking.
When you rock as hard as Pink, you're bound to pick up a few bruises along the way. The singer had a scary accident during her concert in Germany on Thursday when she fell eight feet from a harness and into a steel barricade. She's been keeping fans up to date with her health and told followers today, "okay. full steam ahead people.no pain, no gain. or is it no brain, no pain? either way, i will be on that stage, even if i have to crawl:)"
As we mentioned in Tweet Dreams yesterday, celebs were seriously psyched for Leonardo DiCaprio's latest movie "Inception." Those who went to early screenings are already raving about it. "Pretty Little Liars" star Ashley Benson posted, "Omg inception was insane...seeing it again when I get to LA wow..." while Austin Nichols gave a shout-out to the star, writing, "Everybody go see #inception and support @LeoDiCaprio. He's the man!!!"

It's appropriate that the mind-bending thriller "Inception" (which opens today) is about dreams, because one of its stars has been visiting ours for years. While Leonardo DiCaprio may get top billing, his equally dreamy costar Joseph Gordon-Levitt has certainly been giving fans some pleasant thoughts for years.

The 29-year-old cutie, who got his start way back in the 90s alien-sitcom "3rd Rock From the Sun," has come a long way transitioning from teen heartthrob ("10 Things I Hate About You") to respected indie actor ("(500) Days of Summer").
