'Snatch' Trailer Basically Shows What Would Happen If Ron Weasley Was A Slytherin
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Ron needs to sort out his priorities. In Crackle’s new trailer for “Snatch,” former “Harry Potter” star Rupert Grint dives into a different kind of role. The series, based on the Guy Ritchie movie of the same name and inspired by a real-life London heist, centers on a group of 20-something hustlers who are suddenly thrust into the world of organized crime. Bloody hell, Ron! Grint is executive producing and starring in the first season, comprising 10 one-hour episodes. Joining him are Luke Pasqualino (“Skins”), Lucien Laviscount (“Scream Queens”), Dougray Scott (“Fear the Walking Dead”), Phoebe Dynevor (“The Village”), Juliet Aubrey (”The Infiltrator”) and Ed Westwick (“Gossip Girl”).  “Snatch” is basically what would happen if Ron got sorted into Slytherin, which does sound like magic.

Pretty Much Every Young Male Actor Is Auditioning To Play Han Solo
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The search for a new Han Solo is rapidly becoming America's biggest thirst trap.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, an astonishing 2,500 actors are auditioning to play a young Solo in Phil Lord and Christopher Miller's upcoming, as-yet-untitled "Star Wars" spinoff movie, which is slated for release in May 2018. We're not talking about randos lining up outside the Disney lot here. At least not exclusively. Many of the hottest (young, white, male) actors in Hollywood are gunning for the part: Miles Teller, Logan Lerman, Dave Franco, Ansel Elgort, Ed Westwick, Rami Malek, Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Even Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the "Harry Potter" movies!  The plot of the movie -- which Lord and Miller are playfully referring to as "Red Cup," as in, you know, Solo cups -- is as yet a tightly kept secret. All we know so far is that it's an origin story for Han Solo.  But it's not hard to figure out why so many actors want the role. Playing Han Solo in 1977's "Star ...

Yahoo News - almost 2 years
By Robert Kessler | Yahoo Celebrity? Gossip Girl mom Kelly Rutherford says she was moved to tears by the support of her famous friends, who successfully collected enough signatures on a petition to get the White House to intervene in her years-long child custody case. On Tuesday night, a We the People petition asking President Obama to help return Rutherford?s children to America passed 100,000 signatures, which means the Obama administration is required to at least address the matter in some way.

Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Kelly Rutherford is involved in an international custody battle that may set a precedent for future cases. It's been a six-year custody fight for the former Gossip Girl actress who wants her children back in the United States after a U.S. judge ordered her children Hermes, 8, and Helena, 5, to live in France with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch. Giersch is a German businessman with a revoked work visa, barring him from returning to the U.S. NEWS: Hollywood's Most Nuclear Divorces Giersch, 40, filed papers to make the kids "habitual residents" of Monaco, and they have been living with him in France since 2012. Rutherford, 46, can only fly out to visit them. The custody battle has cost Rutherford about $2.5 million. "It cost me everything I've ever made," she told ET.

ABC Orders The Muppets and Ken Jeong Comedies, Oil Boom, '80s L.A. Crime, FBI Dramas, and More
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
If you like days when networks pick up new shows, then today was your favorite day ever. Networks got a headstart on the Upfronts by ordering several new shows, and ABC just made the biggest order of them all! The Alphabet added three new comedies and six new dramas to its 2015-2016 season, including a reboot of The Muppets and another Shonda Rhimes drama. Stay busy, girl! Let's start with the comedies before things get too serious. The Muppets follows the personal lives of Jim Henson's lovable puppets in and out of the show that made them famous in a documentary-style presentation. We'll be witness to their love lives, professional aspirations, and everything in between. It's billed as a more adult take on The Muppets, but also kid friendly. Ummm, okay! Dr. Ken stars Community's Ken Jeong as a brilliant doctor with terrible bedside manner. But that's not all! He's also a husband and father of two, and he has a propensity for driving those around him crazy. Suzy Nakamura, Tisha-Campbel ...

This Man Was Body-Shamed, And Now Hundreds Of Women Are Throwing Him A Party
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
This is a great Internet story: When an unnamed man was shamed for dancing in public, a tribe of body-positive women launched a Twitter search to throw him the ultimate dance party in California. They found him -- and he said yes. It all started when an anonymous person posted a surreptitious shot at the man, with photos attached, on the message board 4Chan. "Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week," the poster wrote. "He stopped when he saw us laughing." A screenshot of the post, labeled "Why I Hate Children," was uploaded to Imgur by the user FrozenBadger. "I find this behavior fucking despicable," FrozenBadger wrote. "If you're out there big man, fuck those kids. Keep dancing." Most Imgur commenters shared FrozenBadger's sentiments, sending messages of support to the anonymous dancing man like "Don't ever let them dull your sparkle big boy!" and "I wish we could find him and tell him he's awesome." One writer decided to do just that. Cassandra F ...

Creating the Sweet Valley High Cast of My Dreams
Huffington Post - about 3 years
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't read Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later (I obviously have because I have no life) then don't continue unless you want some key plot twists revealed. Then again, you probably don't care about what happened "ten years later," and will never get around to this modern classic, so feel free to proceed. We've all probably heard that Diablo Cody is set to pen the film version of the iconic book series centered around the lives of the two identical, gleaming California blondes. There's a holdup though -- word on the street is that no director is attached to the project yet, which means the cast list hasn't been set. Because there is clear evidence to indicate that this movie could be a train-wreck (look no further than the abysmal Sweet Valley TV show) I feel compelled to not only cast this movie, but also to set a few standards for the wardrobe. I'm not quite sure if this version will be modernized to include current fashions, but I'm also not sure if ...

Bangkok Travel: Consuming the East
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Downstairs at Badmotel. This new bar attracts a fashionable crowd As a frequenter of the Big Mango I have explored its juicy center fairly thoroughly -- more thoroughly than people I've known who have actually lived there. Even so, it's as if the Emporium on Sukhumvit Soi 22 is one edge of Bangkok's flat farang universe and to go any further is to fall off the edge. My mission this trip was to boldly go -- well, a bit further east (and not just on the way to the airport). Like many journeys, this one started on the internet, but many Thai sites are, unsurprisingly, in Thai. However while investigating eating and drinking options, I found Bangkok.travel, a new website for visitors with updates on local tourism, nightlife and practicalities such as visas. Equipped with ideas and hunger, I grabbed a couple of Bangkok-based expats equally enthusiastic about food and alcohol-fueled discovery, and we set off. A decade ago Thonglor was a wasteland of car dealerships and wedding sho ...

Mickey, Machete and Juliet
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Okay, right up front: I haven't seen Captain Phillips yet. Obviously, it's the best new movie of the week. Its 8 on IMDb dwarfs the three new movies I did see, which average a 5.5. Paul Greengrass is the most unheralded of the mainstream directors at work today, and maybe this will get him some much-deserved herald. But I can't comment. I didn't see it. You see, my wife wants to see it, and for some reason she wants to see it with me. Since she works very hard to support her film-fan husband, she can't just pick up at a moment's notice and slip off to the movies. And she asks for so little. So when it's a choice between happy wife and a more complete blog, the wife wins out. This does give me a chance to mention the two new biggies out last week, Gravity and Runner, Runner. Here's what you need to know: You will forget Runner, Runner before you've found your way out of the multiplex. It's a workable premise with a screenplay that has everything break exactly right for it ...

Alex Moaba: 'The Family That Kills Together'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Note: Do not read on if you haven't seen Season 8, Episode 5 of Showtime's "Dexter," titled "This Little Piggy." Ah, that's more like it. With Dexter and Deb finally at peace, this episode of "Dexter" felt like it was back in its comfort zone, which proves the week-old television maxim: If you want to pull a show out of a rut, sometimes you have to drive into a lake. After all the sibling rivalry, near-confessions and bottoming-out, Dexter now has a partner in crime. And Deb proved herself very helpful in rescuing Dr. Vogel from the creepy toe-clutches of The Brain Surgeon. Indeed, "the family that kills together." Let's break it all down. The episode opened with Deb and Dexter in what we should probably call an "emergency family session" with Dr. Vogel. And this exchange quickly captures the absurdity of last week's climax: Dr. Vogel: "Debra, it seems that you've tried to kill Dexter as well as yourself." Deb: "Well, yeah, but then I tried to save him." Micha ...

12 great years for fashion
Guardian (UK) - over 3 years
Byzantine chic, the furry 30s and 70s kitsch – there are some surprising style references this season. We reveal the years that influenced the looks of summer 2013 1174 It's just so weird that no one mentions the 1170s, isn't it? So thank goodness Dolce and Gabbana pointed out the brilliant Byzantine chicness of 1174 with its AW13 collection, which references the mosaics in the Catedral de Monreale in Sicily. Hand beading, laciness, cardinal red. As fresh now as they were in the 12th century. 1591 The Brooklyn hipster beard (19th-century blacksmith/Mumford & Sons/Johnny Harrington) has been the defining men's hairstyle reference of the past year. But the July release of Julian Fellowes' Romeo and Juliet brings news of looks hot from the 1590s. Damian Lewis as Lord Capulet revives the 16th-century monastic bowl cut as silver-fox material (yes, really) while Ed Westwick as Tybalt makes a strong case for the manbob. 1922 The Gatsby effect, as it turns out, is not about flapper ...

'Downton Abbey' Creator Takes On Shakespeare
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" is one of the most adapted plays of all time, but none of the other versions included so many of television's most favored names. For instance, this new version of "Romeo and Juliet" -- the trailer for which you can watch above -- stars Brody and Chuck Bass Damian Lewis and Ed Westwick and was written by "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes. Starring Douglas Booth and Oscar-nominee Hailee Steinfeld as the star-crossed lovers of the title, Fellowes' take on "Romeo and Juliet" looks like many other takes on "Romeo and Juliet." It's all mannered and hallowed, even Westwick's wig. (He plays Tybalt, because of course he plays Tybalt.) Carlo Carlei directed this version of "Romeo and Juliet," which is set for release in the U.K. on July 26. As of now, the film does not have U.S. distribution. [via Indiewire/The Playlist]
