Full admission: I have loaned out my copy of City of Bones so many times and I read it so long ago, that it took me a couple of viewings of this first Mortal Instruments trailer for me to remember what’s going on in each scene. Really, that’s why I had to watch it five times in a row. It had nothing to do with the fact that every scene plunged me deeper into Cassandra Clare’s gorgeously dark world and made me fall in love with Clary and Jace and Alec and Izzie and Simon all over again. Or the fact that on my first viewing, I kept giggling about the late Lane Pryce as Hodge. No, it’s just ’cause I have a crap memory for details.
OK, actually, it’s also because the preview has lifted all my hopes about Jamie Campbell Bower playing Jace. I don’t have a whole lot of words to add to back up my reasoning here. Just these 10 images of him being broody, hot and a legit action hero in the face of vampires, demons and his dear old dad. Enjoy!
You can always count on VH1 to ask celebrities the most important questions on the red carpet. We headed to the Emmys with one mission and one mission only: to get as many stars as possible to sing their favorite TV theme songs. After all there are SO many good ones! Just try to pick your favorite. Cheers, Friends, The Jeffersons, Punky Brewster, Facts of Life, Welcome Back Kotter, New Girl, the amazing instrumental jams of The Cosby Show and Beverly Hills, 90210 — can you choose just one? The stars we talked to at the Emmys gave it their best shot and some even sang their picks because really, that’s the only way to do it. Wanna see what it looks like when Hank (Dean Norris) from Breaking Bad sings The Brady Bunch theme song? How about The Amazing Race’s Phil Keoghan singing Gilligan’s Island? Yeah, we thought so. Click on, friends.
It’s here! The return of Mad Men after two long years is practically being hailed as television’s second coming, and VH1 News was there at the premiere to get the inside scoop from the cast. Fans of the show know that the last season ended with one of the biggest WTF cliff-hangers of all time. So what can we expect from season five? We asked the stars to sum up the new series in one word, and their answers were everything we could hope for!
“Shocking. Surprising. Some sort of ‘S’ word,” said Jon Hamm, while Jared Harris went straight to the heart of the matter by offering “amazeballs.” Well said, sir! January Jones got surprisingly shy when asked to sum up season five. “I can’t! If I think of one word, I feel like it’ll give it away,” she laughed. But eventually she settled on “suspense.” But the final word belongs to John Slattery, who plays office renegade Roger Sterling. “Two words … surprising and satisfying.” Technically he broke the rules, but we’ll take it.
