First Dibs: What Do Fans Think About The Cast For The Fault In Our Stars?

Who didn’t know who Gwyneth Paltrow’s husband’s band was at the Met Costume Gala? Which TV shows were cancelled and which were saved for next Fall? And will Jay Gatsby beat Tony Stark at the box office?

  • Ansel Elgort has been cast as cancer-stricken dreamboat Augustus Waters in the big screen adaptation of The Fault In Our Stars. The book has an ardent fan base that was already skeptical of Shailene Woodley as the female lead and author John Green is already trying to calm unhappy fans on his tumblr. [John Green’s Tumblr]
  • It would seem that Gwyneth Paltrow did not have a good time at the Met Costume Gala. Not only did she already complain openly that “it was so un-fun,” but Korean rapper Psy didn’t know who her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, was. [Daily Mail]
  • Upfronts are next week which means all of the major U.S. television networks have finalized (or are close to finalizing) their Fall 2013 schedules. Happy Endings and Smash were both canceled, The Mindy Project and Community will see another season, Sean Hayes and Anna Faris will be starring in new comedies for NBC and CBS, respectively, and ABC picked up Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

  • The Great Gatsby is set to have a big opening weekend and should rake in close to $40 million. However, that would still put the lavish literary adaptation behind Iron Man 3, which should bring home around $70 million. [MTV News]
