Is "The Originals" about to get "Lost"? Not quite, but when we caught up with Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies, the stars of The CW's upcoming "Vampire Diaries" spin-off, we were curious as to how flashback heavy their new series would be. After all, its predecessor never met a period scene it didn't like, and with a millennium's worth of history at their disposal, there's no shortage of content to mine.
"We have a thousand years to draw on, so I hope so," Joseph said of his wishes for a flashback-filled narrative. "I even wondered at one point, when we were talking about the format of the show, whether it would follow a 'Lost' format—flashbacks every episode. I think that would be too expensive."
"But awesome," Daniel chimed in. "Can we do that? What an amazing idea. You never shared that with me. I'm sort of hurt that you're doing it in the middle of an interview."
"I have to keep something up my sleeve," Joseph replied with a wry smile. "I think I read it somewhere. It wasn't mine."
Whatever the case, you can bet there will be plenty of historical moments featuring the Original family, and if Joseph has his druthers, they may shiver your timbers.
The first round of nominations for the 2013 Teen Choice Awards is officially out, and ooooh, all the nominees are FABULOUS. So many favorite films and favorite famous people getting the love they deserve! Who's up for the coveted surfboards this year?
Firstly, because we luuurve a good supernatural romance, we're psyched to see some of our beloved sci-fi and fantasy films getting a nod from the teen tastemakers: "Beautiful Creatures," "Oz the Great and Powerful" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" are all up for the win—and it's a strong last-chance showing for the cast with Choice Actor noms for Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart. (Also earning an acting nomination: Saoirse Ronan, who starred in the movie adaption of Stephenie Meyer's "The Host.")
Yes, the rumers are true. (And, yes, we just made that pun. Let it go.) Rumer Willis has landed a role on "Pretty Little Liars."
The starlet will play a charity organizer named Zoe. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rumer is slated to appear in one episode but could potentially end up with a recurring role on the series. She previously appeared on “90210,” so she’s definitely got some experience in the world of soapy primetime dramas.
Rumer’s episode will air in July, and here’s what we know so far: Zoe is described as a do-gooder with a sense of humor. Though, given how much action takes place in Rosewood, we just hope that Zoe doesn’t scare easy. Or, at least, has a few answers to the many, many questions laid out last season. Or, maybe she’s Red Coat. We haven’t seen her (or his) face yet...so really, anyone and everyone is a suspect.
Oh, Boyd Holbrook. You are one guy who is easy on the eyes. And with the premiere of "Behind The Candelabra" slated for this weekend, you've been added to the list of things we’re going to be doing this long Memorial Day weekend. So, in honor of the flick’s premiere, we’re naming Boyd this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Boyd, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: Boyd is from Kentucky, and the 31-year-old got his start as a model, appearing in campaigns for such powerhouse fashion labels as Gucci, Jean Paul Gaultier, Versus, Marc Jacobs, Dior Homme and Viktor and Rolf. But he’s far from just a pretty face. Boyd has also studied at New York University and Columbia. He’s also a writer, photographer and sculptor. A man of many, many talents. James Franco might want to watch his back.
"Vampire Diaries" fans weren't the only ones caught off guard by Hayley's unexpected pregnancy, revealed recently during the back-door pilot for "The Originals." To wit, the werewolf's real-life alter ego, Phoebe Tonkin, was just as surprised when she was handed a copy of the script.
"It was definitely left field," she told Hollywood Crush at The CW Upfronts on Thursday. "I didn't expect that to be the big plot twist of the pilot at all. I spent a lot of time before that thinking, 'What could it be? What could the show be about?' And when I read that I was like, 'That's good, Julie [Plec]. That's a good one.' It's cool. It just kind of changes the tone of the show a lot."
As to how Hayley will fit into the Mikaelson clan as the mother of Klaus' child, Hayley wasn't certain, but she did acknowledge that the Originals have a lot to lose if things go poorly.
Following tonight's season four finale of "The Vampire Diaries," Mystic Falls will be short one befanged family: namely, the Originals who've scored their own spin-off series debuting this fall. But that's not to say there may not be a few loose ends as the Mikaelsons move to the Big Easy. Like, for example, the budding relationship between Klaus and Caroline.
When we caught up with stars Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies at today's CW Upfront, we asked how (and if) their romantic entanglements will conclude with tonight's episode.
"I don't know what's going to happen," Joseph admitted of his character's relationship with a certain Vampire Barbie. "I know that in 'The Vampire Diaries' finale, we get a little screen time tonight. There's something of a resolve there."
But, according to Joseph, we can't rule out a future Vampire Exchange Program between Mystic Falls and New Orleans.
If you love guilt-watch television and beautiful people, this morning's CW Upfront was the place to be: an earlybird sneak peek at all the shows that the channel has lined up in its shapely can. Today's event included details about the upcoming season of "The Vampire Diaries," along with exciting newcomers like spin-off "The Originals" and "The Tomorrow People"—and, of course, a chance to ogle all the gorgeous stars as they turned up to promote their work.
Nina Dobrev has been taking the fashion cake at the Upfront for ages, and this year was no exception: The star was a bombshell in a bright blue dress with a lace-and-grommet empire waist. Also winning points for superstar style was AnnaSophia Robb, leading lady of "The Carrie Diaries," in a peekaboo dress with competing pinstripes that her character would lurve. And Aimee Teegarden, who's going to be big this year in the new series "Star Crossed," was working it in a shortie jumpsuit with a pointy collar and impressionist print.
If you've been craving a bit more "Sex" in your "Carrie Diaries," we have some good news indeed: Carrie Bradshaw is set to meet her lustiest of ladyfriends, Miss Samantha Jones, during the second season of the CW series! The network made the announcement today as part of their Upfront Presentation in New York City.
The upcoming season kicks off during the summer of 1985 and finds Carrie living in the downtown loft of her Interview magazine boss, Larissa, following some serious heartbreak back at home. (Thanks a lot, Sebastian!) We assume it's during these warm weather months in Manhattan that Carrie happens upon her soon-to-be BFF, who—as you'll recall from the HBO series—is a few years older than the rest of the ladies, which means she could be a college student interning in the city, or even a recent graduate getting her footing in the high-pressure world of PR.
"Ominous" doesn't even begin to describe the hot-off-the-presses poster pegged to the upcoming sixth season of HBO's "True Blood."
The latest bit of promo for the upcoming season (a slew of stills debuted last week), the gauzy one-sheet features a befanged one (we'll call him Generic Vampire #5) writhing in pain with the tagline, "No one lives forever," matter-of-factly printed beneath his snarling countenance.
Now, the body count over the course of the last five seasons of "True Blood" would probably make even the most money-hungry mortician cry mercy, but there's something about the tone of that simple declaration that makes us think someone major may be kicking the bucket this season. Or maybe we're just paranoid. All we have to say, "True Blood" producers, is if you take Alexander Skarsgård away from us, well, you won't like the consequences.
Mindy Kaling was not lying: Last night's "The Mindy Project" season finale was "steamy," indeed.
(Spoilers ahead if you haven't watch the episode!)
Sure, Mindy may have finally decided to head to Haiti with her minister beau, but there’s no denying her sexual chemistry with Danny, as evidenced by the way he managed to make her (and us) swoon. He can clean off the smudges on our glasses anytime.
When Hollywood Crush caught up with Mindy at this year's Fox Upfront, she teased what it might all mean for the future come season two.
"That I think that the relationship that was sort of started as an adversarial relationship between Danny and Mindy reaches a very different place at the end of the first season. And, also, she's like in kind of the best relationship of her life with this great minister guy who’s like funny and great and moral and good. So, it’s very juicy and good," she said.
