Rising starlet Phoebe Tonkin must have a thing about circles. First, the gorgeous Aussie makes her U.S. debut last fall in The CW's "The Secret Circle" and, now, she's being circled... by a shark.
Tonkin stars in "Bait 3D," which arrives on DVD and Blu-ray this week. In the film, she's among a group of survivors trapped in a grocery store following a freak tsunami. But still wandering the aisles in search of their next meal are some vicious great white sharks.
Thankfully, Tonkin has her favorite movies, music and more to keep her far less stressed in her real life. She took a break from the set of "The Vampire Diaries" — where we'll next see her — to share them with us. Get More »
Josh Lucas may not be the first person you think of when picking a bad guy for a Nicolas Cage thriller — he was so adorably nice in "Sweet Home Alabama" — but that didn't stop the makers of his latest film, "Stolen," in theaters Friday.
In the movie, he kidnaps his former partner's teenage daughter and gives Cage only 12 hours to deliver some serious dough (like, bank-robbing amounts of dough) and keep her alive.
Thankfully, he's a bit more like the rom-com version of himself — which can also be seen in "Red Dog," currently available on DVD and On Demand — in real life. And, as such, he has some awesomely interesting tastes when it comes to movies, music and more. How do we know? Because we asked him to turn us on to his favorite pop culture picks. Get More »
Just because you hail from Middle-earth doesn't mean you're not hip to the more media-centric pleasures in life.
Dominic Monaghan has certainly come a long way since first getting our attention with his memorable turn as Meriadoc 'Merry' Brandybuck in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Since traversing the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, Monaghan has played a drug-addicted rock star lost in limbo (or something) on ABC's hit series, "Lost," tried the whole Marvel mythology on for size with his role as Bolt in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and haunted cemeteries as a graverobber in the cult comedy, "I Sell the Dead."
Just because he plays a vampire dad doesn't mean Peter Facinelli can't have human tastes.
The actor has come a long way since first catching our eye as Mike Dexter, Jennifer Love-Hewitt's loser boyfriend in "Can't Hardly Wait." Now not only is he best known for playing vampire patriarch Dr. Carlisle Cullen in "The Twilight Saga," but he also stars as another doctor, Fitch Cooper, in Showtime's "Nurse Jackie."
The versatile actor, who wrote and stars in the film "Loosies," took a few moments to share some pop-culture picks that are pretty current for a 368-year-old vampire. Get More »
"Scream queen" is a label tossed out there far too liberally – it's a label that really should be reserved for performers like Tiffany Shepis.
Just peruse the actress's credits and you can smell the gore: "Chainsaw Cheerleaders," "Night of the Demons," "Dorm of the Dead"… and now "Bonnie and Clyde Vs. Dracula," a classic movie mash in select theaters now and hitting DVD April 26.

Tanit Phoenix is a temptress of many trades.
Aside from speaking three languages and being a multi-talented dancer and martial artist, the South Africa native is also making headway as a hot rising star in Hollywood. Now appearing in "Death Race 2" (on Blu-ray and DVD today) in which she plays perhaps the sexiest convict who ever lived (and which was filmed in her homeland), Phoenix is currently shooting an epic 13-part series for HBO called "Femme Fatales."
Amidst her busy schedule, Phoenix took some time to tell us what feeds her pop culture fix. Get More »
Allison Holker is a busy lady.
In addition to raising a 2-year-old daughter, the 22-year-old "So You Think You Can Dance" All-Star has been touring the country with the cast of the reality show's most recent season and starring in the music video for Christina Perri's "Jar of Hearts." And, if you haven't seen her there, you may have caught the Utah native dancing in "High School Musical" and "High School Musical 2."
But, amidst every busy schedule has to be some much-needed down time, so we asked Allison to give us the pop culture picks currently keeping her cool. Get More »
