The "porn star name game" is a time-honored tradition in America.
It's a game pretty much anyone can play, depending on the rules — we employ the First Name: First Pet, Last Name: Street You Grew Up On method (our apologies to those with allergies, maybe you had a goldfish?). And the results are, without fail, hilarious.
We asked 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Paul Rudd, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Jon Hamm, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100.

Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").
Garrett Hedlund is many things: the leading man in the rebooted sci-fi franchise "TRON", a honky-tonk love interest in "Country Strong" and "Georgia Rule," and now an indie wild child, playing Dean in the long-awaited film adaptation of "On the Road."
Hedlund's path to "On the Road" wasn't an easy one: He's been attached to the project for five years, and the movie has been in Hollywood purgatory for even longer, with a paper trail leading back to the 1950s, when author Jack Kerouac first floated the idea of an adaptation of his novel. This Friday, U.S. audiences will finally get the chance to see this new side of him (and, as a bonus, they'll get to see his naked side).
Hedlund caught up with NextMovie in New York ahead of the film's release, and talked "Twilight," getting intimate with Steve Buscemi, and how, exactly, to crack open a Benzadrine inhaler. Get More »
The as-yet-untitled "Tron 3" project gained a screenwriter last week, and now it has officially gained a star.
Garrett Hedlund confirmed to NextMovie exclusively that he would follow up his 2010 performance as Sam Flynn in "TRON: Legacy" by appearing in the long-rumored sequel, which may begin shooting in 2014, according to some sources. Get More »
Finnick Odair, the dreamiest tribute in Panem, has finally been found, but only after a lengthy search that spanned countless A-list actors and virtual unknowns alike. "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" actor Sam Claflin will star as the trident-wielding Finnick in Francis Lawrence's "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," but once upon a time, there was a very different man in the running for the role: "Tron Legacy" star Garrett Hedlund.
Hedlund confirmed his near miss with "Catching Fire" during a recent interview with MTV News at the Toronto International Film Festival, where he was promoting "On The Road," yet another hotly awaited novel adaptation.
"They did [approach me]," Hedlund admitted to MTV about almost playing Finnick in the upcoming "Hunger Games" sequel. "But I was working on this film at the time. We shot the whole film in 23 days and I was really immersed in it. I couldn't get around [to reading the 'Hunger Games' novels]."

It's been thirty years in the making, but Walter Salles' film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's iconic novel, "On the Road" is finally (almost) here. In anticipation of this Cannes favorite (where it premiered earlier this spring), a brand new trailer has surfaced that gives us the most in-depth preview of the star-studded film yet.
Like the book, the movie follows Sal Paradise (a character played by Sam Riley and based on Kerouac himself), Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund) and Dean's 16-year-old bride, Marylou (Kristen Stewart) as they set off on a cross-country road trip from New York to California in search of their version of the American dream, which seems to involve dancing, hitchhiking and disappointing their parents.

It's good to finally feel the beat of "On the Road."
The film adaptation of what many consider to be the defining work of the Beat Generation has been a long time coming (30 years worth of development hell, in fact), and now we have the first look at director Walter Salles' cinematic translation of Jack Kerouac's (mostly) autobiographical novel.

Still riding high from last summer's blockbuster hit "TRON: Legacy," Garrett Hedlund's dancing card is starting to seriously fill up. The blue-eyed thesp is already set to star opposite Helena Bonham Carter in the mystery flick "Akira," but he's just squeezed in another job first. (Sometimes it's nice when things get pushed back.)
According to Showblitz, word around Tinseltown is that Hedlund is in negotiations to join the cast of the Coen Brothers' latest, "Inside Llewyn Davis," which would mean him teaming up with the likes of Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and Oscar Isaac. Not too shabby if you ask us. Get More »
Scream "KANEDAAAA!!!" all you want, anime hounds, but it looks like Warner Bros. is about to pump the breaks on one of the most troubled productions in recent memory.
Since first being mooted in 2007 as a directing vehicle for then-29-year-old Ruairi Robinson, the baton has since been passed to Albert Hughes, and finally to "Orphan" director Jaume Collet-Serra. According to The Hollywood Reporter, however, Warners is closing production offices in Vancouver and sending everyone home packing as key creatives try to figure out a way to cut the budget down so as not to leave the project an orphan.
The money was already sliced in half from Hughes' $200-million iteration, but now the company wants to decrease their risk further by chopping more fingers off the project, Yakuza-style, from $90-million to the $60-70 range. This is partly to do with a distinct hesitance on the part of any major name stars to climb aboard this motorcycle ride through post-apocalyptic dystopia, with only "Tron: Legacy" man-slab Garrett Hedlund signed on the dotted line.

The classic anime feature "Akira" has been blowing people's minds for nearly a quarter of a century now, which is only fitting considering it centers on the story of a mutant whose mind powers end up destroying Tokyo. But that's nothing compared to the mega-bombshell Twitch has just dropped: Kristen Stewart has been offered a role in the upcoming live action remake.
Here's the skinny for those of you who consider yourself to be more of a Twi-Hard than an otaku: Based on the ground-breaking manga series by Japanese artist Katsuhiro Otomo, "Akira," which was directed by Otomo himself, tells the story of two friends who have a falling out when one of them begins to develop psychokinetic powers.

Critics have often praised Gary Oldman's ability to completely disappear into his roles, but this time, he'll be pitted against the toughest reviewers yet -- manga fans.
Oldman has been offered the role of The Colonel in the upcoming movie remake of manga classic Akira. The first adaptation of the illustrated series was brought to the big screen by the series' author Katsuhiro Otomo, who also served as director on the project, in 1988.
The series takes place in a dystopian future in which Tokyo has been destroyed by Akira, a young boy with immense psychic ability, who has since been captured by the government for tests. Get More »
