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 »
Evan Rachel Wood has at least one thing to love about life: She's just snagged the lead role in "10 Things I Hate About Life."
Although the title will throw you into a fit of nostalgia recalling the classic 1999 film "10 Things I Hate About You" (Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Heath Ledger), Deadline reports that this upcoming project is not the sequel.
However, the dynamic duo that brought us the modern day adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew," writer/director Gil Junger and producer Andrew Lazar, are teaming up again to bring us this Los Angeles-set romantic comedy.
The film will follow Wood's character as she plans to commit suicide, but meets a man with the same mission, putting at least a temporary hold on her demise. "Their chance meeting is so awkward, so raw, and so funny, they postpone their intentions and go their separate ways," said Junger. Get More »
Settle in for this week's very exciting episode of "When Celebrities Bitch About Roles," featuring special guest stars Juliette Lewis and Evan Rachel Wood.
In today's episode, one-time Academy Award-nominee (1992) Lewis has learned that three-time Academy Award-nominee Amy Adams (2005, 2008, 2010) is up for the lead role in rock n' tragedy biopic "Janis Joplin: Get It While You Can," and she is none too pleased. Get More »
Actors are trained to be able to portray just about anything their role calls for, but there's one thing even the best actors can't possibly fake: Singing.
That's why we're always so impressed when actors sing on screen rather than just lip-synch some professional musician. Case in point: Next week's "Pitch Perfect," which features stars such as Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson belting out tunes like the divas they were meant to be. Get More »
With the MTV Video Music Awards hitting MTV tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, we've compiled a list of the 50 best based on a number of factors: creativity of video, quality of actor's performance and, for some, random dancing ability. Our only caveats: no cameos and no soundtracks. The debate begins now. Get More »
Michael Fassbender's riding into the sunset, Evan Rachel Wood is hitting the road and Jamie Bell is gettin' busy in this week's casting news.
Fassbender may soon be studying to be a quick draw as he's in talks to join the western, "Jane Got a Gun," according to Vulture. Natalie Portman is currently attached to the film about a woman who hires an ex-lover (Fassbender) to protect her ranch after her outlaw husband returns home bullet-ridden and with former criminal colleagues hot on his heels. Lynne Ramsay ("We Need to Talk About Kevin") is attached to direct.
On again. Off again. Well, now "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" is definitively on again.
Since Shia LaBeouf returned to his starring role in the film (after briefly being replaced by Zac Efron), it seems two more leads have been filled. Evan Rachel Wood and Danish star Mads Mikkelsen ("Casino Royale") have signed on for the thriller.
Penned by Matt Drake, the scribe behind the upcoming "Project X," the story follows Charlie, who, after the death of his mother, heads to Europe to find himself. (Sounds reasonable to us.) On the plane, however, he meets Hungarian beauty Gabi Banyai (Wood) — and her father dies on the flight. Charlie does what any reasonable, grieving man would do. He promptly falls in love with Gabi.
The trouble is that her violent ex-husband (Mikkelsen) vows to keep them apart, forcing Charlie to suffer a slew of serious beatdowns fight for the girl he loves. Get More »
Justin Long has often melted our hearts as that puppy-eyed ageless boy actor, and now he's ready to do it again.
The star's latest project shows he's more than just a pretty face with a mushroom cut; he's a writer, producer, and most importantly, a Joni Mitchell fan, all of which he'll bring together for "A Case of You."
Variety reports that the indie will star Long and his brother, Christian, who is also co-writing the script, "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage, Evan Rachel Wood, Keir O'Donnell and Busy Phillips. Get More »
Reunited and it feels so good ...
It's been nearly a decade since Catherine Hardwicke directed Evan Rachel Wood in the teen drama "Thirteen," but now it seems the two are getting back together for a new, more grown-up film.
The Texan director who gave Bella and Edward their big break is switching from her usual, more teen-centric fare to "an erotic thriller set in the L.A. music world" with Wood set to star. Artie Nelson cowrote the script for "Plush" with Hardwicke, who will direct. Get More »
Are "Billy Elliot" and the girl from "Thirteen" old enough to get married?
Indeed they are, according to Us Weekly.
Jamie Bell, now 25, recently proposed to Evan Rachel Wood, 24, after being seen shopping for engagement rings in late December.
This is actually Chapter Two of the couple's relationship — they dated for a year or so back in 2005 (they're pictured here at the "King Kong" premiere) and got back together last summer. Wood was previously engaged to shock rocker Marilyn Manson but called it off in 2010. Get More »
