Jared Leto showed off his newly shaved eyebrows Monday night as he arrived at the 22nd annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City. Thanks, Jared, we weren’t planning on sleeping between now and Christmas, anyhow. The freaky new look is apparently for his role in The Dallas Buyers Club, the same flick that caused Matthew McConaughey to starve himself down to the size of our pinky. Jared himself was recently photographed in some very loud drag for the role. Damn, this movie has gotta be some serious Oscar-bait!
We’ve all heard about actors changing their hairstyles for film roles, but it’s a bit more rare to be told to buzz the brows! But still Leto is by no means the first guy who’s had to do crazy stuff to his eyebrows in the name of Hollywood glory. Head down to the gallery below to see 10 famous faces with some wacked out brows!
Now that Nickelodeon is rebooting the uber-popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, beginning this Saturday morning, a whole new generation will be shouting “Cowabunga!” as they imagine a life of fighting crime and eating pizza. Rob Paulsen, who voiced Raphael in the 1987 cartoon series, is back as Donatello, and he told VH1 and fellow stars Jason Biggs, Sean Astin and Greg Cipes about the privileges associated with being a turtle. “When you work on something this iconic … you make a phone call to a child in a hospital, or you show up at a friend’s kid’s birthday party or you go show up in the hospital — whatever it is, the impact that the Turtles have on children is so profound, way beyond action figures, ratings, all of that,” he said. “I now get email and notes from people I talked to 20 years ago.”
We’re happy to see Paulsen back doing what he loves, but that got us wondering what has become of the stars of the equally beloved and maligned TMNT movies of the ’90s. Those live-action flicks featured appearances by the likes of Vanilla Ice, Elias Koteas and Paige Turco, not to mention the voice talents of Corey Feldman and Kevin Clash, whom many of you might know as the voice of Elmo. Take a look at the career highlights of a number of the stars of the first three movies, and then relive a little of your childhood magic by tuning in to TMNT this Saturday!
American Reunion opens in theaters today, introducing a whole new generation of impressionable teens to the magic of band camp jokes and pie sex. We caught up with Chris Klein at the movie’s premiere, and he told us that things on set were even crazier than in 1999. People partied, prank wars ensued, and Jason Biggs greeted him by slapping him in the nuts. That’s the spirit!
After a long nine years since the last theatrical installment (sorry, we’re not counting those four revered direct-to-DVD masterpieces), American Reunion finally hits theaters today. From what we’ve heard, the latest chapter of the American Pie franchise is gonna be the wildest yet! Although some of the gang is married with kids, it doesn’t mean they’ve mellowed with age. VH1 News hit up the L.A. premiere and managed to catch up with Chris Klein, who plays lax-bro incarnate Chris “Oz” Ostreicher in the series and offered this comparison to the original: “It’s more fun because the jokes are a little crazier, and I think us as a cast is a little bit crazier,” he told our very own Kate Spencer. “I don’t think anybody is any more mature or responsible than we were when we were 18 and 19 years old.” Phew, that’s a relief!
It’s hard to believe it’s been a whopping 13 years since the beloved original was released. Check out the gallery below to see your favorite American Pie stars, all grown up! From pie-shaggin’ Jason Biggs to band camper Alyson Hannigan, Glee-wanna-be Mena Survari to Stifler’s Mom, they’re all here! Head on down to see, and get ready to feel reallllly old…
The gangs all here and they’re to their old disgusting antics in the new red-band American Reunion trailer. In case you aren’t totally sure if you should watch it at work, we’d say consider it NSFW unless your boss happens to be Stifler’s Mom. And if she is, congratulations! She is one special lady.
While there’s no sign of any pie (yet!), we do get a sneak peak at some filthy highjinks involving a tube sock and a shower head. We also get to meet an adorable toddler, who is going to need years of psychotherapy to deal with having Alyson Hannigan and Jason Biggs as his parents. So, since you’ve probably seen the original American Pie, are you planning to RSVP for the Reunion?
Suffering from a severe case of Rich Person Reality Blindness, Jenny Mollen Biggs talked to Playboy’s The Smoking Jacket about her husband Jason Biggs’ prostitute encounter in Las Vegas for his birthday. According to Mrs. Biggs, she and the American Pie star ran into a comedy of errors while trying to purchase the services of a lady of the evening (miscommunication, ATM mishap) before settling on a sex worker named Keisha. You guys know a pie only costs about $10 at the store, right? You guys also know this story makes you seem like two profound creeps, right?
Unfortunately for them, but fortunately for anyone with eyes and the ability to read, the American Reunion star suffered performance anxiety and was unable to go forward with the evening’s planned activities. According to Mollen, their guest for the evening couldn’t have been nicer. “She lightened the mood by saying, ‘Look, see? Your husband must really love you. He couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even stay excited by the idea of another woman,’” she writes. And now that we know this, you have to know it too. We just couldn’t be the only ones! We’re so sorry!
American Pie lovers (all both of yous) will be happy to hear the news that most of the film’s stars have signed on for one more sequel called American Reunion. It’s not that we hate the movie—we actually quite enjoyed it when it came out—but any goodwill toward the film was lost with each subsequent sequel (American Pie 2, American Wedding) and spinoff (American Pie Presents Band Camp, American Pie Presents The Naked Mile, American Pie Presents Beta House, American Pie Presents The Book Of Love) that came out of the franchise. But now, there will be (at least) one last hurrah.
American Reunion has signed every major actor from the film (though Alyson Hannigan is still a maybe) to reprise the roles they played in the 1999 film, with Jason Biggs, Eugene Levy, and Seann William Scott among them. If you weren’t really paying attention back then, this movie was a phenomenon, a must-see blockbuster that was unprecedented for its raunchiness, which explains the star-studded turnout at its premiere twelve years ago. We unearthed some amazing photos from that hot summer night in 1999 of some serious A-listers at the premiere and it made us wonder: Would these people be caught dead at the premiere for American Reunion? Probably not, but check out the gallery and see for yourself.
Maybe after trying her hand at a musical career, an acting career and career consisting only of trying on bikinis and kissing in front of the paparazzi, Heidi Montag has finally found her calling in writing spooky teen romances. It can’t possibly hurt her career to try! Heidi Montag and Jason Biggs exchanged book ideas via Twitter today after Montag tweeted, “Thinking about writing a supernatural romance novel. Would you read?” to which Biggs replied “Holy s–t yes.” Not that we’d ever admit it to anyone, but our sentiments exactly.
The actor and the sort of actress got hot and heavy with their tweets, suggesting plenty of plot ideas, all of which sounded like real winners. “Heidi’s Romance Novel, Chapter 1: @biggsjason sits seductively on a tiger skin rug, wearing nothing but a yarmulke,” Montag triumphantly tweeted, finally concluding “So #HMRomNovel stars myself & @biggsjason. Need a good antagonist for the vampire KGB officer. Thinking @DannyPudi From Community.” As if the notion of a blood-sucking Russian official with Jason Bigg’s face isn’t enough to get the tweens swooning, Montag tweeted to Biggs, “Apparently @biggsjason is posing nude for the cover of my supernatural romance novel. Cross that one off my bucket list!” Wait a minute…just how did Heidi get a copy of our bucket list?
Malin Akerman is best known for her unforgettable sex scene with a superhero in Watchmen. Jason Biggs is best known for his unforgettable sex scene with a dessert in American Pie. Both actors were born on May 12th. Which one is older?
