While on hiatus from "Mad Men" the always-charming Jon Hamm has grown a beard (may it rest in peace), hosted "Saturday Night Live" and starred in one this year's Sundance Film Festival favorites, "Howl" (opposite the equally handsome James Franco).

But, "Howl" wasn't the only movie project Jon kept busy with, as he also stars in this year's "The Town," which costars none other than "Gossip Girl" actress Blake Lively, causing two of TV's most beloved worlds to collide (though we can't imagine Serena lasting too long at Sterling Cooper!).

Back when we spoke to Kristen Stewart at Sundance while she was promoting "Welcome to the Rileys", she told us on the red carpet that she has never "felt so personally involved in something" as she did with the film. In "Rileys," Kristen plays runaway stripper and prostitute, Mallory, who James Gandolfini's Doug Riley attempts to take in to lessen the pain of his own daughter's death.

Kristen never took the role lightly, even going to strip clubs to speak to the girls working in them and hear their stories. When MTV News caught up with Kristen to discuss the film more, we asked if there were any lingering effects of Mallory still with her.

Blake Lively never made it to the snowy mountains of the Sundance Film Festival, but her name was heard up and down Main Street, uttered by some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Ryan Reynolds declared that the "Gossip Girl" beauty is going to be "flawless" opposite him in the comic book adaptation, "Green Lantern."

And Ben Affleck, who cast Blake last summer in "The Town," had nothing but kind things to say about the 22-year-old actress, even though he's never caught a single episode of the TV show that made her a star.

Over the past six seasons, "The Office" has had a number of great guest stars that would be hard—that's what she said—to beat. We're thinking of folks like Oscar-nominee Amy Ryan and bombshell Jessica Alba, who made a memorable cameo in a boot-legged video alongside Jack Black. But when we heard that Golden Globe host and series creator Ricky Gervais' dream guest star was Ryan Gosling, well, we nearly melted. Now if only Ryan were game. When we caught up with the 29-year-old while promoting his new flick "Blue Valentine" at the Sundance Film Festival, we just had to ask.

"I love it. He's my hero," Ryan said regarding Ricky and the proposed cameo. "He was like, 'Yeah, I think Ryan would be the perfect guy to play a total psycho, to go into his office and kill everybody," he added with a laugh. "Yeah, anytime. He's the best."

Watch out, Port Charles, James Franco's stint on "General Hospital" is not over. James revealed that while he doesn't have plans to appear on any other soaps, he would be returning to "GH" this spring.

"Other soaps have not called. The 'General Hospital' thing is not over. It will be one more very special episode that we will film in May in New York, so that's an ongoing thing," disclosed the actor, while promoting his film "Howl" at the Sundance Film Festival.

In case you weren't watching "GH" for the past couple of months, James Franco's character is named, well, Franco. He's a serial killer and an artist, and his art is all about his murders.

When Kristen Stewart takes a role, she puts her entire self into it. For "New Moon," she said she got so into Bella's character that the big break-up scene with Robert Pattinson's Edward, nearly killed her, and now she is back to throwing herself into her character head-first.

For "Welcome to the Rileys," her second film to debut at Sundance this year, Kristen plays a stripper who meets a troubled man (James Gandolfini) who tries to rescue her and also use her to replace his dead daughter. In order to truly get in character, Kristen did what all good actors are supposed to do: researched her character.

Much like costar Malin Akerman and teen starlet Kristen Stewart, Katie Holmes was promoting not one but two films at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Earlier in the week, we sneak peeked a scene from her first flick "The Extra Man" and talked with her about the paparazzi-riddled New York set.

Today, Mrs. Tom Cruise turns her attention to her second movie, the aptly titled romantic comedy "The Romantics,"which costars Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel and Elijah Wood. When MTV News caught up with Katie and Elijah, we found out just how motherly Suri's mama was on set.

Well, there go our Wednesday nights....

Variety just announced that "Ugly Betty," which is currently in its fourth season, will wrap up for good this April.

The news came as a surprise to us this morning, although perhaps it shouldn't have. "Betty," which was initially one of television's "it" shows, was struggling big time in the ratings department. In fact, "Betty's viewership went from 8.3 million last year, to just 5.3 million this year. That's a pretty significant drop. Read More...

This year’s Sundance antics are not just being filmed and written about, they’re being documented old school style at MTV’s exclusive photo booth. Among the hoards of stars who have taken shots are Ben Affleck, Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman — and now Katie Holmes and Elijah Wood can be added to that list.They were at the festival to promote their film “The Romantics,” which is about a group of friends from college reunited for a wedding.

The duo spoke to MTV News about their experience making the flick, and they both remembered how much fun they had between takes. "One lunch break," recalled Elijah, "instead of going to lunch, we decided to have a party at one of the holding houses. There was a little iPod dock, and we played very loud music and danced. And the girls were amazing."

Looks like the fun hasn’t ended. Katie and Elijah were all smiles in this shot of the pair in our photo booth! Want more self-portrait action? Click on the image above to be taken to the full Sundance flipbook!

For most of the women in America, getting a chance to do a steamy sex scene with Ryan Gosling would be a dream come true. When you had the opportunity to screen your film before hundreds of your peers, you'd relish the opportunity to rub in their face that you got naked with the male half of the best Valentine's Day movie ever: "The Notebook." But Michelle Williams, who got to live the dream in the Sundance film "Blue Valentine," did the exact opposite. In fact, she didn't even sit in on the Sundance screening.

"When the movie screened the other day, me and the kid [4-year-old daughter Matilda], neither of us were old enough to watch that movie," she said with a smile. "So we colored in Tinker Bell pictures for two hours and played pirate games."
