If the internet rumors are to be believed, Victoria Justice is set to move to "Ravenswood" later this fall when the "Pretty Little Liars" spin-off makes its debut. In fact, the project even landed a spot on her IMDb page. However, according to the actress/singer, her bags aren’t packed, and she has no plans to board a flight to the highly anticipated ABC Family soap.
"I’m not. I’m actually not," she told MTV News of the reported role. "I don’t know. I was in talks for it, but it ended up not working out for whatever reason. I think it’s a great project, and I wish them luck with it, but I’m not attached."

The third and final wave of Teen Choice Awards nominations has been released, revealing the oh-so juicy categories we’ve been waiting for! From Choice Movie: Liplock to Choice Summer Music Star, these surfboard acceptances always make for the most buzzworthy clips from the Teen Choice stage.
What would the Teen Choice Awards be without that steamy Choice Movie: Liplock category? This year’s nominees include Amy Adams and Henry Cavill for “Man of Steel,” Skylar Astin and Anna Kendrick for “Pitch Perfect,” Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert for “Beautiful Creatures,” Logan Lerman and Emma Watson for “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” and, of course, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2." There is always a lot of pressure on these nominees to live up to their movie magic.

While this week started out on a sad note, a bit of news has just surfaced that has filled our hearts with unbridled joy. Jesse and the Rippers of "Full House" fame are reuniting on TV this Friday, playing "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (per People).
All together now: Have mercy!
Last month, my heart skipped a beat when my childhood crush, the fictional Uncle Jesse Katsopolis, started up a Twitter account and announced that his rockin’ band, Jesse and the Rippers, were back together and touring. I hadn’t heard them in FOREVER.
"The Vampire Diaries" is getting its higher education on when our favorite Mystic Falls supernaturals return for a new season on The CW. With half the beloved cast relocating to New Orleans (and Tuesday nights) for spin-off "The Originals," there’s some room for new blood. (That was a vampire joke. You’re welcome.)
Can’t wait until October 10 to find out what happens to everyone after that doozy of a season finale? Here’s everything we know about the fifth season so far, now that filming has begun:
Bad baby vamp! Things took an unexpected turn for lovable ginger Jessica Hamby (played by Deborah Ann Woll) on Sunday's "True Blood" episode, when in an attempt to help her maker, Bill, extract blood samples from Sheriff Bellefleur's four faerie daughters, she accidentally, well, ate them. Not exactly how the phlebotomists do it, Jess!
It was arguably the darkest moment in the bloodsucker's short life, but one Deborah told Hollywood Crush she relished.
"[I was] really excited," the 28-year-old said of her reaction to reading the episode's script for the first time. "You know, for an actor, the best thing in the world is when your character screws up big time because it allows your character to grow. And that's the best thing."

What would "Glee" be without its tremendous lineup of guest stars? From Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker to Britney Spears and John Stamos, the musical television series has definitely called upon a heaping helping of Hollywood heavyweights. So, naturally, another famous face is being added as the show gears up for season five.
On Wednesday, creator Ryan Murphy took to Twitter to announce that "the super talented Adam Lambert is joining the cast of Glee this fall."
Adam will be the second "American Idol" alum to join the show, following season 11’s Jessica Sanchez, who brought her sass to powerhouse diva Frida Romero. While we're still waiting to hear exactly which role Adam will be taking on and whether he’ll be a series regular or just appear in a couple episodes, we've decided to take matters into our own hands with three characters we could see him playing.
It's back to Mystic Falls for the cast of "The Vampire Diaries." Several of the CW stars, including Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, took to Twitter today to announce the start of season five.
Of course, things will be a little different when the series returns to the airwaves, what with the gang no longer in high school, the Originals off in New Orleans and Katherine a bona fide human. To borrow a line from Bravo, we can't wait to watch what happens!
Happy Endings may still be in Damon Wayans Jr.'s future, despite the cancellation of his cult-loved ABC sitcom.
TVLine reports that the actor could return to Fox's "New Girl" in what they're calling a "significant season three arc." As you may recall, Damon starred in the pilot episode as housemate Couch but had to give up the role when "Happy Endings" was renewed for a second season. Lamorne Morris moved into the vacated bedroom as long-lost (and criminally under-utilized) roommate Winston.
Fox has yet to confirm the news, but we're hopeful Damon will find a new television home following the cancellation of one of our favorite series. And if nothing else, Damon and "New Girl" co-star Jake Johnson will share screen time again very soon: They're currently filming the buddy comedy "Let's Be Cops."
After nearly six seasons of HBO's addictive "True Blood," we thought we'd met nearly every kind of supe imaginable. How silly of us. Because during Sunday's delicious episode, "At Last," we were introduced to a hybrid we never thought possible: the faerie-vampire. And, surprisingly, that wasn't even the biggest reveal of the episode. Nope. As it turns out, the faerie-vampire in question—seemingly mild-mannered drifter Ben Flynn—is actually the big bad Warlow! AAAAGGGHHHHHHHH.
The revelation was a stunner, to be sure, one that actor Rob Kazinsky was happy to finally be open about.
"It's great to be playing him," the actor told us during the red-carpet premiere for "Pacific Rim," the Guillermo del Toro film in which he stars. "Obviously, I've known for a very long time, and I've been waiting for this moment. In all the interviews I've done, I've had to talk about Ben, and Ben is boring. Being able to play Warlow and actually have people talk about that and have people know that I'm this 6,000-year-old super-psychotic vampire; that's super-exciting."
With just about a week until Comic-Con kicks off in San Diego, now is the time to officially plot your schedule for the geekstravaganza—and, of course, put the finishing touches on your steampunk zombie dominatrix costume for after-hours partying. And considering the veritable buffet of exciting options available over the four-day nerd-a-thon, some serious decisions will have to be made about where your priorities lie. Dystopian Chicago or war-torn Westeros? Vampires or werewolves? Tough choices, y'all. But if you need a place to start, here's a rundown of the events you absolutely won't want to miss.
"Divergent"! "Divergent"! "Divergeeeeeent"!!!
But seriously, you guys, "Divergent." The long-awaited first glimpse of the big-screen adaptation of Veronica Roth's dystopian trilogy is debuting at Comic-Con on Thursday afternoon, and you're gonna want to be there. Not only will fans get a sneak peek at the flick, but stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Ansel Elgort, Mekhi Phifer, Ben Lamb, Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Christian Madsen will all be there to chat it up (and, if we're really lucky, display their Dauntless knife-throwing skills). Plus, the author herself will be there, too, for some serious talk about how "Divergent" made the transition from bestselling book to blockbuster film.
