'Kill Your Darlings' Trailer: Beat Gen Poets Gone Wild

One might suspect something creative and fancy pantsy was responsible for bringing together the bright poetic minds of Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs at Columbia University in the mid-forties, but in actuality it was a rather twisty murder incident that ultimately made 'em bedfellows of the beat generation.

Drunk Ron Weasley/Simon Pegg Wishes Harry Potter Happy Birthday

Ron Weasley has something he wants everyone to know: It's Harry Potter's 33rd birthday. And he's wasted out of his mind.

No, really. Everyone's beloved boy wizard turned 33 on July 31—does that make him a man wizard?—and Jimmy Fallon thought it was fitting to ring in Mr. Potter's birthday on his talk show last night. But a simple cake, candles and glass of champagne wouldn't do the trick. No, Fallon needed Ron Weasley. Ron Weasley inebriated. Ron Weasley inebriated and incoherently singing "Happy Birthday" to Harry Potter.

And that's exactly what he got. The dudes over at "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" dressed up actor Simon Pegg as Potter's right hand man—red hair, Gryffindor cloak, wand and all — along with a glass of juice scotch, and pushed him on stage. The rest is history. Get More »

'This Is the End' Only Happened Because Of Daniel Radcliffe

Emma Watson wasn't the only "Harry Potter" star approached about ditching her Gryffindor garbs and turning into an a**-kicking, looting and otherwise just not f**king around survivalist for the apocalyptic disaster comedy "This is the End."

The Boy Who Lived himself, Daniel Radcliffe, also got an early whiff of the pic's script  ... but he was quite put off by the foul odor of the then-stinker draft.

17 Movie Stars Get Animated

The Croods DreamWorks

Practically every mega-star in Hollywood has gotten animated.

Tom Hanks was a toy. George Clooney was a fox. Eddie Murphy was an ass a donkey. And in the prehistoric adventure "The Croods,"  Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds play a cavegirl, a caveman and a caveboy, respectively.

We wondered what these stars would look like as animated people rather than as, you know, animals and neanderthals and stuff. Thanks to these 17 portraits, we've replaced our wondering with works of art. Get More »

The 10 Best Junket Interviews Ever

Mila Kunis BBC / YouTube

It's a fact of life for an actor/writer/director after doing a movie: Just before the film debuts, you meet with the press and answer questions like, "What was it like to work with Matthew Modine?" and "Before playing a mime, did you meet with any mimes to prepare?" It's a part of the biz, so to speak, and the process is generally unremarkable.

Except when it isn't. Whether the interview becomes awkward, hilarious, charming or weird, it also always becomes magical, as we saw when the Internet exploded this week over Mila Kunis's playful flirtation with a quirky British chap. Get More »

Yes, Master! Daniel Radcliffe Is Igor in 'Frankenstein'

Can you picture a hunchbacked Harry Potter scurrying around a decrepit lab as he brings a mad scientist his various bubbling test tubes and other such knick-knacks? And without glasses, of course!

Soon, the movies will do the picturing for you (though we doubt it will be that extreme), as Daniel Radcliffe is in final negotiations to take on the role of monster maker's assistant Igor in a new version of "Frankenstein," according to Variety.

Based on Mary Shelley's oft-adapted 19th century novel (in which the character of Igor does not appear), this is one of several "Frankenstein" projects in various stages of development at different studios. The Radcliffe "Frankenstein" is setting up its laboratory at Fox, with Paul McGuigan (TV's "Sherlock") on board to direct from a script by Max Landis ("Chronicle"). Get More »

Daniel Radcliffe On His Gay Sex Scenes: What's The Big Deal?

Movie Trailers, Movies Blog

Sundance is in full swing and apparently so is Daniel Radcliffe, as all the buzz out of the annual festival seems to be about his turn as Allen Ginserg in the indie "Kill My Darlings." Or more specifically, about his gay sex scenes.

And Radcliffe really doesn't get the big deal.

"It's interesting that it's deemed shocking," he told MTV News. "For me, there's something very strange about that because we see straight sex scenes all the time. We've seen gay sex scenes before. I don't know why a gay sex scene should be any more shocking than a straight sex scene. Or both of them are equally un-shocking."

20 Movie Stars You Didn't Know Were Jewish

Universal

Ah, Hanukah! Festival of Lights! A time for Jews everywhere to get together in a spirit of peace, give gifts and sing songs. It's also a time for gentiles everywhere to ask questions like "So... what's the deal with Hanukah?" and "How do you spell Chanukah?" and "Why does it keep moving around the calendar like a celebratory hobo?"

These are good questions; deep questions. And who better to ask than Hollywood's Jewish stars! But who's Jewish? It's no shock that certain actors are from the tribe (shalom, Sasha Baron Cohen!), but Zac Efron? Get More »
