Congrats, Vampire Academy fandom! Sarah Hyland is in love with you. We caught up with the Modern Family star at the Emmys, where she praised the uber-talented and committed fans of her upcoming film Vampire Academy, one of the next big YA book-to-movie adaptations. “They’re so amazing and supportive and the best fans,” she said. “And very, very talented with their fan art.”
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Grease are just two of the many iconic high school movies that have earned a more permanent place in our hearts than our own graduating class. But as much as we think we know their stories inside and out, we often forget their central lie: Their stars were way older than their roles. Prepare to be amazed (or at least to laugh knowingly!) as we take a look at some hit TV shows and movies — from The Graduate to High School Musical, Beverly Hills 90210 to Buffy — starring actors who aren’t exactly age appropriate for the parts they play. Check out the full gallery of the 30 over-aged actors who managed to fool us!
The summer of North West, Amanda Bynes, Superman and foam fingers is coming to a close, and we thought we could use a little more eye candy to get us through the Labor Day weekend (all that sunshine and BBQ gets old after a while). But this isn’t just any eye candy.
No, you weren’t having a fever dream when you saw that Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez are starring together in the car chase movie Getaway. But relax, they aren’t playing love interests or anything. Actually it seems like the poster boy for Gen X and the Millennial triple threat have a pretty great platonic relationship going on. See for yourself as they encourage each other in this rigorous pop culture quiz we put them through.
It’s always fun to chat with Kristen Bell, the charming star of the upcoming Veronica Mars movie and — most recently — The Lifeguard, a dark drama about a 30-year-old’s early midlife crisis. In the film, her character quits her journalism job, moves home, snags a lifeguarding gig and romances a local 16-year-old boy. It’s a raw look at those life choices that are wayyyy wrong but we sometimes make anyway, shoving best interests aside for impulse and lust.
Whether or not you were already a fan of Divergent, we suspect the first look at the 2014 dystopian movie that aired during the VMA preshow made you take notice. Kate Winslet! Maggie Q! Shailene Woodley jumping off of buildings. And … who is that guy teaching her martial arts and kissing her? Oh, world. We hope you’re really ready for Theo James.
The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones is in theaters now and whether you’ve seen it already or not, you might have a few questions. Don’t worry because we’ve not only seen the movie, but we might have read all of the books in author Cassandra Clare‘s popular YA series, and we’re ready to spill some secrets about the film, the characters and that controversial ending.
Be forewarned, though, because mild spoilers abound in the first two pages, and MASSIVE SPOILERS appear in the last page.
So it appears that Johnny Depp is pretty bummed about the fact that his passion project The Lone Ranger completely tanked at the box office this summer. The film is expected to cost Walt Disney Studios $150 million, a figure that a company EVP calls “very disappointing.” Ooof, that’s a pretty high price-tag. Now poor Johnny is considering pulling a Brando by quitting acting altogether and retiring to “quieter things.” Awwww, Johnny…we hope this little setback isn’t getting you down. Look on the brightside: TONS of bombs have gone on to have long and successful careers as movie classics on home video!
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opens today, and the movie is packed with demon-filled battles, angsty teen romance and (spoiler-ish alert!) two guys whose love for their respective best friends is painfully unrequited. Their agony is nothing new — movies have long been inhabited by lurking, lovesick pals pining over a friend who’s too busy with someone else to notice. Check out our chat with Jamie Campbell Bower, Lily Collins and Kevin Zegers, the stars of The Mortal Instruments, to hear their thoughts on the film’s two love triangles.
We’ve picked the five most memorable rejected BFFs from the big screen — from Pretty in Pink to Twilight.
If you haven’t yet read Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices books, you might be wondering why Magnus Bane, a minor character in City of Bones (in theaters Wednesday), has a massive online following and was the runner up in our 25 Best Supernatural Characters of 2012 list (above all those vampires!). We thought we’d give you a little primer on the gorgeous warlock, played by Taiwanese-Canadian model Godfrey Gao. Here are some reasons why we love him, anyway:
