Hush, Hush Angels Fall Onto The Big Screen: We Fantasy Cast The YA Hit

Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush has been optioned for the big screen

Ever since we first read Becca Fitzpatrick’s Hush, Hush, back when a slew of angel-themed YA novels threatened to wipe vampires off the shelves in 2009, we’ve been wondering what was taking Hollywood so long to snatch up the series. It’s got all the elements of a great addictive movie franchise: relatable heroine (Nora Grey, a science wiz and cellist whose father was murdered recently), irresistible mysterious bad-boy (Nora’s new biology partner Patch, who ditches homework for the pool hall), hilarious best friend (Vee, we can’t even describe her in a phrase) and complex mythology that unfolds carefully throughout the book. There are fallen angels, love triangles, murder mysteries and a seedy New England setting in the mix too. And yes, today, finally, comes the news from Entertainment Weekly that LD Entertainment will adapt the four-book saga for the big screen. Greek creator Patrick Sean Smith will write the screenplay.

Hush, Hush fans have been fantasy casting this story for years now, and even Fitzpatrick once had her own dream choices for the roles. “I started writing Hush, Hush almost ten years ago, so I was picturing actors who are obviously now too old to play the parts. I wanted Steven Strait for Patch and Emmy Rossum for Nora, but that won’t work anymore,” she told EW. Now she thinks some undiscovered actors should star. Fair enough, but we took a shot at choosing some up-and-comers we love for the roles. Check out our choices and then chime in with your own!

Pretty Little Liars Guys: Will Their Un-Pretty Moments Sway Your Vote For This Week’s Hotness?

Phew! We are so relieved that none of the contestants for this week’s Hotness was offed in last night’s Pretty Little Liars Halloween special. That would have made all this a little macabre. (Sorry, Garrett, RIP.) On the other hand, it is definitely a crime to have Caleb in a mask for most of an episode. Aaanyway, if you still haven’t decided whether Tyler Blackburn, Ian Harding, Keegan Allen or Julian Morris deserves your vote, we have one more way to help you — cute/hilarious/seductive videos of them not being Caleb, Ezra, Toby or Wren.

First up, we dare you not to fall in love with Tyler after seeing him sing in the video above. This was for last year’s Web series Wendy, an updated Peter Pan story in which he played indie rocker Peter. How is it fair that he looks like that, is a convincing actor AND can sing too?

Oh, damn. Keegan’s got some skillz too… Read more…

Pretty Little Liars Guys: Who Should Be This Week’s Hotness?

Ian Harding, Tyler Blackburn, Julian Morris and Keegan Allen battle for your votes

Just in time for the Pretty Little Liars Halloween special — where we hear one male resident of Rosewood is going to die! — we’ve brought the Weekly Hotness poll back from beyond the grave. And we’re pretty sure this election has more undecided voters than that other one set to go down in two weeks. Are you hot for teacher Ezra, a.k.a. Ian Harding, and his sensitive literary style. Or does Caleb’s (Tyler Blackburn) lethal combination of bad-boy rep, computer smarts and sculpted cheekbones get you where it counts? Did the “BetrAyal” devastate you and your Toby-loving (Keegan Allen) heart? Or are you rooting for Dr. Wren (Julian Morris) to step in and steal back Spencer or Hanna? (Regardless of where your loyalties lie, you have to admit it’s weird that Wren is still single.) We’ll be back tomorrow with more ways help you make your decision — along with plenty of OMGs over tonight’s ep — but in the meantime, enjoy this extensive gallery of the four rather Pretty boys. And vote! Poll closes Friday at 8 a.m.

Michael Trevino, Tyler Blackburn, Stephen Amell And Other TV Hotties Short Circuit Our Brain With This Pic

Stephen Amell, Jay Ryan, Stephen R. McQueen, Dylan O'Brien, Harry Shum Jr., Tyler Blackburn, Justin Hartley, Taylor Kinney and Michael Trevino

I first saw this photo this morning on Arrow star Stephen Amell‘s Facebook feed (like it, you won’t be sorry), and no kidding, all work stopped for a full five minutes. I’m surprised there’s no brain matter splattered on my screen right now. In case you haven’t yet committed the fall TV schedule to memory, here’s who they are, from left to right: Amell, Jay Ryan (Beauty and the Beast), Steven R. McQueen (The Vampire Diaries), Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf), Harry Shum Jr. (Glee), Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars), Justin Hartley (Emily Owens, M.D.), Taylor Kinney (Chicago Fire) and Michael Trevino (The Vampire Diaries). The spread is actually from Bullett Media, who decided to explode our hearts too, by gathering these guys’ quotes about what they look for in a woman.

“I judge a woman purely on how she looks first thing in the morning. That’s the critical point, right?” Amell says. OK, so he’s not all that romantic. But points for honesty!

“If a girl doesn’t get along with my dog, then we’ve got a problem,” McQueen says.

Our personal favorite is from Tyler Blackburn: “I enjoy a certain amount of decadence in my life, so I want to be with someone who shares an appreciation for the finer things. And if that finer thing happens to be fried, well, put it in your mouth.” We’re totally down with that one.

For the rest of the guys’ quotes (especially a surprising revelation from Taylor Kinney, a.k.a. Lady Gaga’s main squeeze), head over to Bullett.

Divergent Gets Release Date, Let’s Pick Our Dream Cast!

Divergent may be the most anticipated book-to-movie adaptation since The Hunger Games got its turn last year (though The Fault in Our Stars is surely a close second). With a release date of March 21, 2014, announced yesterday and rumors that Limitless director Neil Bruger is attached to the project, all we need now are a couple of pretty faces to obsess over. The roles of 16-year-old Tris and her love interest, Four, are sure to be a big get for any actor and we already have a few favorites already in mind. So does Twitter, where people are constantly proclaiming their love for certain stars they see fit for the leads. Let’s discuss some of our favorites here at VH1 Celeb headquarters, and then we want you to tell us who you envision getting their Dauntless on on the big screen.

Taissa Farmiga is my number one pick to play Tris, and I even have the author’s approval on this one. Veronica Roth once replied to my tweet about Taissa as Tris with “ooh. She’s spot on, looks wise.” Not only does she completely embody Tris physically, but her raw and vulnerable performance on American Horror Story proves she’s got the acting chops, too. Our friend and NextMovie editor Breanne Heldman loves Molly Quinn, telling Hollywood Crush, “Molly has a sass and intelligence that’s also so totally Tris.” Castle fans, do you agree?
