Teen Wolf’s Tyler Posey is downright charming both on-screen and off, as we learned while chatting him up on the Teen Choice Awards red carpet last night. We inquired about his most regrettable moment from the teen years – since, ya know – that’s kind of the theme of both the awards and his TV show on MTV. Turns out Tyler regrets nothing - though he did pause to look back on one moment with a bit of…thoughtful hindsight.
“I don’t really regret anything,” says Tyler. “I try not to. I don’t regret this, but I was 12 years old and I gave myself my first tattoo with a needle and ink. I would always scratch designs on my skin and rub ink on it when I was like 12.”
Tyler then went into great detail explaining how he sterilized a needle to really commit to inking himself, and accidentally marked himself with soot instead of ink. True story. “I think I’m okay, it’s been there for ten years. I’m still here,” he joked. We’re just glad he survived! And kids – definitely don’t try this at home.
While Twilight and The Hunger Games were sweeping up all kinds of surfboards at last night’s Teen Choice Awards, there was at least actress in the audience wondering if she’ll be getting up on that stage next year as part of another great young-adult-novel-turned-movie franchise. Well, we’re assuming as much. When we caught up with Beautiful Creatures co-star Camille Balsamo she was super excited about the movie, which they just finished shooting in New Orleans. Based on Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl‘s four book series, it’s about a boy named Ethan whose life in his boring, Civil War-obsessed town is turned upside down when he meets a mysterious girl named Lena — and he quite literally can’t get her out of his head. She and her family are Casters, people who wield all sorts of magical powers, and not necessarily for good. So will fans of the engrossing books be satisfied with the movie?
“I think they’ll especially love the casting,” Balsamo, who plays Katherine Duchannes, told VH1. “I read the book and I think that the casting is perfect. I think everybody fits their characters to a T and I think they won’t be disappointed.”
Camille pretty much nailed exactly why Beautiful Creatures has a shot at taking their place next to Twilight, Harry Potter and Hunger Games in our hearts. “I think that so many teenagers can relate to what Lena and Ethan are going through, and even though I’m not a teenager anymore, I still could feel what they were feeling, and I think that’s an incredible thing that the book has to offer.”
There’s just something about Troian Bellisario that screams Anastasia Steele to us. Perhaps it’s her lovely dark hair and pale skin, or maybe it’s her confident yet vulnerable turn as Spencer Hastings on Pretty Little Liars. Yep, she’s got Fifty Shades of something about her, and we’re hoping E.L. James is noticing – because Troian is a huge Fifty Shades of Grey fan. She shared her love for the series with VH1 at the Teen Choice Awards. When we revealed that she topped the list of our dream cast, Bellisario sweetly responded, “That just makes my heart sing.”
As for the possibility of playing the infamous Seattle submissive? Troian says she’s all for it. “I think it would be something terrifying but if you’re not doing terrifying things every day, you’re not living, so I would love to do that.”
Now we just need to find her the perfect Christian. Any takers, gentlemen actors of Hollywood?
Jesse Pinkman, come on down! Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul stopped by Jay Leno’s Tonight Show last night to gear up for the 5th season premiere of TV’s most anxiety-producing show. But in between talk of BB, Jay confronted the Emmy winner with a not-so-glamorous piece of his Hollywood past: an appearance on The Price Is Right! We were going to make a “The price is wrong, B–TCH!” joke right here, but Adam Sandler beat us to it.
Soon after arriving in LA in 1998, the then-19 year old actor showed up on the classic game show, looking incredibly -possibly unnaturally- pumped to be there! Did he do a few lines of Heisenberg’s potent Blue Sky beforehand? “You’re the man Bob! You’re my idol!” he shrieked at host Bob Barker. Thank god he got to be there during it’s pre-Drew Carey glory days.
This isn’t the first time Paul has opened up about his taste of greatness on TPIS. According to a 2010 interview in the Huffington Post, he did pretty well for himself. For a while, at least. “I made it to Showcase Showdown. I was going against a woman who was in the Marines, and I bid $132 over,” Nooooo! “So I lost, and she went over as well, so neither of us won anything.” Sadly he missed out on snagging an Apple computer, Camero and $1000 cash, but the story does have a happy ending. His friend also appeared on the show…and won! The grand prize included a trip to New Orleans, and he took Aaron along for the ride. And we’re sure the vacation was THE BOMB!

If you didn’t fall in love with Stephen Amell from watching his workout routine in the trailer for the CW’s Arrow, maybe watching his interview with us at Comic-Con last week will do the trick. How can you not swoon for that Canadian lilt? It’s certainly gone a long way toward making us forget that he played CeCe’s jerky boyfriend Kyle on New Girl last season. Now that his name is all over the place, can we count on him getting a return cameo once in a while, just to keep Schmidt on his toes?
“I’m kind of busy now, but those guys were awesome,” he told VH1. “I liked watching those guys work, and I really like doing comedy, so I hope that Kyle makes a return. We’ll see. It’d be super cool if I was in L.A. to do a day on the New Girl set. They were so helpful, too, because I was shooting Private Practice at the same time. They wanted my character to come back and to make it possible to do both of those shows in the same day, actually. I like those people there, and I’m glad they’re having such success.”
After six seasons of constantly being asked “What is the island?” “Who is the man in black?” and “What’s up with that smoke monster?”, Lost alum Terry O’Quinn is not in the least bit reluctant to dig into another show with a whole lot of mysteries. In fact, he’s hoping that Gavin Doran, his devilish character on ABC’s new fall TV offering 666 Park Avenue, will eventually become as ambiguous as John Locke.
“No, one-dimensional characters, not appealing! So, hopefully I can develop this character into — so far he has only one dimension and it’s not very nice,” O’Quinn told VH1 at San Diego Comic-Con. By “not very nice” he means being the kind of Upper East Side landlord that buys tenants’ souls in exchange for certain favors. And while he probably isn’t the devil himself, he and his lovely wife, played by Vanessa Williams, might be on a first-name basis with the guy.
So, to make him multi-dimensional, does Terry hope we’ll see a good side to Gavin? “Well, at least something that makes us ask questions. Something that makes us feel that we can’t necessarily safely assume that this guy is always going to do the worst thing.”
Some of us Glee fans are still in denial about the bomb Finn dropped at the end of the season finale: As he sent Rachel off to New York on her own, he revealed that he’d enlisted in the army. It seems like a well-meaning attempt to fix the memory of his father, whose drug addiction (likely due to PTSD) led to a dishonorable discharge and his untimely death. But we’re all left wondering: Can a softhearted glee club alum like Finn survive boot camp, let alone going into battle? At San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, our own Kate Spencer asked Cory Monteith how he thinks his character will make it.
“He’s really going to have to learn some discipline and learn how to suck it up and not be a high-schooler about things,” Monteith told VH1. “He’s gonna have to learn how to be a man pretty quickly. That’s what I think. He’s going to have to toughen up pretty quickly.”
This sounds like no fun at all. Go back in time and join Rachel in New York, Finn! There are lots of schools in the city that would love to have you! Why don’t you ever listen to us when we yell at you from our living rooms?

When Finn put Rachel on the train to New York at the end of last season of Glee, we were both thrilled that she was going to live her dream and sad that it had to be at the cost of her relationship. For us at home, the New York move means Glee will be a whole new show in season four, but we wondered if this will feel like deja vu for actress Lea Michele, a New York native and Broadway star before she made the switch to TV.
“Rachel’s only been to New York once prior to being put on the train,” Michele told VH1 when we caught up with her at San Diego Comic-Con. “So I think I have to let go of everything I know about New York and try to see it through new eyes.”
It’s more or less impossible to pick a favorite character on Breaking Bad. Gus was arguably one of TV ‘s all time greatest villains, Hank’s obsession with minerals and his unwavering determination to nail Heisenberg is always TV gold, and then there’s just Marie being Marie. But there’s something special about Jesse Pinkman – his constant use of “yo” and “bitch,” his tiny red car, his desperate, misguided attempts to love and be loved. If Walt is the brains, then Jesse is the heart of the operation — and the show.
So it was no surprise that the Comic-Con crowd welcomed the actor with a standing ovation on Friday, nor was it a surprise that the fans crammed into Ballroom 20 booed when show creator Vince Gilligan teased the possibility of Jesse Pinkman dying this season. When we caught up with Aaron at the show’s premiere on Saturday, he had this to say about whether or not Jesse will get a happy ending. “I hope so,” said the actor. “Hopefully he survives. If not, I hope he at least goes out guns blazing, in a blaze of glory.”
As for Gilligan’s hinting that Jesse’s life may be cut short? Says Aaron, “It’s so depressing. I hope something good happens for him, because I care for him deeply.”
So do we, yo. So do we.
It’s safe to say that tonight’s fifth season premiere of Breaking Bad is the most-anticipated television moment since, well, the fifth season premiere of Mad Men back in March. (You gotta hand it to those dudes at AMC!) To wit, most reports coming out of Comic-Con this weekend have pegged the audience reaction at the Breaking Bad premiere party as the most-fevered of the weekend, despite the fact that the hard-boiled show about meth-making and dealing isn’t exactly what you’d imagine would spawn tens of thousands of geekgasms.
Our trusty VH1 News correspondent Kate Spencer caught up with none other than Bryan Cranston, who plays Breaking Bad protagonist Walter White, at the world premiere of BB: S5 last night and asked him a doozy of a question: Is Walter White a hero or a villain? “If he has to use lethal force to protect his family, from his standpoint? I don’t know if he’d consider himself a hero OR a villain. He’s just trying to make his way.”
You can get Bryan’s thoughts on Jesse Pinkman, playing the dentist on Seinfeld, “ma-fatherly” and “the tap” in our video before. Oh, and if you have yet to see Dean Norris (who plays the DEA Agent Hank on the show) dressed up as Xena The Warrior Princess, you MUST check out our gallery below!
