As "The Twilight Saga" comes to a bittersweet end in just a few short months with "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," Ashley Greene is moving on from the role that made her a household name and into a brand new era.
In the psychological thriller "The Apparition," out this weekend, she plays Kelly, a girl tormented by a supernatural virus that feeds off the fear of its terrified victims.

Over the course of his short career, Rupert Grint has already shown a desire to expand his horizons, appearing in several indie films even before the "Harry Potter" series finished filming.

Alan Rickman will always be Professor Severus Snape to us, but he's about to take on the guise of another, more modern legend. You might not have heard of Hilly Kristal, but surely you have heard of the club he started and owned until it closed in 2006, CBGB.
The legendary East Village institution kick started punk rock and became a second home to local artists like Patti Smith, Television, Suicide, the Ramones, and Blondie; later years gave rise to hardcore acts like Bad Brains and, yes, the Beastie Boys. Kristal had plans to take his club to Vegas but died in 2007. Get More »
