Damaged Women, Damaged Lives
Huffington Post - over 1 year
At this point, we've pretty much heard it all. From the Republican Party's vicious (and biologically ignorant) war on women to the young men at a Sigma Nu fraternity party at the University of Central Florida chanting "Let's go rape some bitches, let's go rape some sluts"; from Rush Limbaugh's repugnant slut shaming of Sandra Fluke to the misogynistic delusion that Planned Parenthood might be giving away free smartphones to every woman who comes in for an abortion, a perverse perspective on human sexuality has conservatives firmly in its grip. Whether we're talking about a black women's book club that got kicked off a Napa Valley Wine Train "for laughing too much" or Donald Trump Twitter trolling Megyn Kelly with a tweet that says "The bimbo is back," the hateful message is clear. Women's lives may matter, but why should men care? Consider the signs that were seen hanging in front of a house near Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia this summer. How does one co ...

Why 'Paper Towns' Star Nat Wolff Is About To Be The Next Big Thing
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Allow us to introduce our friend, Nat Wolff. If you don’t know his name already, you’re definitely going to want to learn it because he’s well on his way to stardom. But first, let’s rewind to Nat’s first acting gig. He and his brother, Alex, played tween rockers on Nickelodeon’s “The Naked Brothers Band.” Work that hat, Nat. After his TV role, Nat took the next step in his acting career and booked some movies. You’ve seen him in films like “Behaving Badly” alongside Selena Gomez. He gave us all the feels with his serious role in “Stuck in Love.” And he pretty much stole every scene he was in when he played Isaac, a teen who lost his eyesight, in that little movie called “The Fault in Our Stars.” Let's have a moment of silence for the adorable bromance between him and his co-star, Ansel Elgort.

5 Reasons 'Paper Towns' Will Be Your New Favorite YA Book-Turned-Movie
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Another novel from John Green is getting the movie treatment, and it finally has a release date. In a new video on his Vlogbrothers YouTube channel, Green finally announced that "Paper Towns" will come out June 5 (!). Though June seems far away, here are 5 reasons to get pumped for what is sure to be your new favorite YA book-turned movie, Nerdfighters. 1. John Green was an executive producer on the film. Movies based on novels can go horribly wrong, but thankfully our favorite YA author had a say in the film as executive producer and even shared what it was like on set during filming. I HAVE A CHAIR. THIS IS HAPPENING. #papertowns A photo posted by John Green (@johngreenwritesbooks) on Oct 29, 2014 at 6:28am PDT 2. Nat Wolff nabbed the lead role. Nat nailed his role as Gus’ best friend Isaac in “The Fault in Our Stars,” but his acting skills deserved more screen time. We can’t wait to see him in another John Green project as a central character. ...

'The Fault In Our Stars' Casting: 5 Actors Reportedly Testing For Augustus
MTV News - almost 4 years
It's been more than a month since "Secret Life of the American Teenager" star Shailene Woodley was cast as Hazel Lancaster in the big-screen adaptation of John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars"—and with not one peep as to who would play her swoon-worthy love interest, Augustus Waters... That is, until now. Variety reports that five young actors comprise the shortlist for the highly coveted role of Hazel's fellow cancer support group member. Those men are: Brenton Thwaites, Nat Wolff, Nick Robinson, Noah Silver and Ansel Elgort. All five are relative newcomers to the film industry, and according to the report, none is considered a front-runner at this point. The role of Augustus is a meaty one, to be sure, one requiring a level of depth and sensitivity not often inherent in a teenage boy. With that in mind, let's take a look at the contenders: Brenton Thwaites Where you've seen him: The Australian actor starred in the made-for-TV movie "Blue Lagoon: The Awakening." Otherwise, un ...

Annette Bourdeau: 'Admission': The Latest Adult-on-College-Campus Comedy Makes the Grade
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Adult shenanigans on school campuses have been well-explored in movies over the years. From professors blurring the lines of proper student/teacher relationships to middle-aged men trying to re-live their better days, we've seen all kinds of different iterations of the "adult on campus" theme. In this week's release, Admission, Tina Fey plays Portia, an uptight admissions officer at Princeton who becomes emotionally attached to an applicant who may or may not be the biological son she gave up for adoption during her own college days. Paul Rudd co-stars as John, the head of an alternative school who introduces her to the young man he suspects is her son -- who just happens to be dying to get into Princeton. Career-minded Portia becomes increasingly unhinged as the movie progresses, as she contemplates the possibility that Jeremiah (Nat Wolff) is her son and deals with the fact that her long-term boyfriend (Michael Sheen) has run off with an insufferable lit professor.

The Trouble With Tina Fey's New Movie
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
What should be a hilarious, long-overdue pairing of two hugely likable, superstar comedians ends up being a major disappointment with "Admission." As much film and television work as they do individually, Tina Fey and Paul Rudd surprisingly never have worked together. In theory, her smart, zingy persona should mesh beautifully with his easygoing goofiness – or their shared dynamic should bounce, or snap, or have some sort of life to it. Instead, Paul Weitz's direction of Karen Croner's script is tonally erratic: too fast in spots and too much of a slog in others. It certainly doesn't help that the characters, based on Jean Hanff Korelitz's novel, feel like types without much nuance. Even reliable comic veterans like Fey and Rudd can't find much that's new or fresh in these people, and as a result they have zero chemistry with each other. That's shocking, I realize. Fey, as a Princeton University admissions officer, is always uptight, precise and emotionally clo ...

Nat Wolff: The Lessons I've Learned From Jazz
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn't methodical but Jazz isn't messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians. Jazz is abandon. Jazz is a constant theme in my life. My father is a jazz pianist and from an early age I have been surrounded by it. I would not describe myself as an avid jazz fan and I am not a Jazz musician myself. However, that is not to say that jazz does not play a vital and important role in my life. Thursday I watched and listened to my dad play with three other musicians at Dizzy's Jazz at Lincoln Center. I have probably seen my father play live jazz over 150 times since I was a baby. I have had a very erratic life but with one constant; when my dad is playing, I am there listening. The gigs refresh and comfort me. Thursday, I watched two sets back to back until 11:30 and I tried to figure out what makes these events ...

We Love Lily And Logan In The New 'Writers' Trailer
MTV News - about 4 years
If you're a hopeless romantic, a Logan Ler-maniac, or a lover of Lily Collins (whose fandom doesn't have a cute name yet, for some reason — you guys should get on that!), heads up: the cutest little indie drama you've never heard of is about to shoot right to the top of your must-see movie list. It's called "Writers", the trailer is officially online this week, and it looks all kinds of adorable and heart-wrenching and full of scenes in which Logan Lerman makes that sad puppy face that drives the entire female population of the earth absolutely wild. Check it out. The movie features Lily as Sam, a college student and first-time novelist who, thanks to the implosion of her parents' marriage, has made one-night stands her SOP and avoids romance like the plague. Logan, of course, plays the sincere and soulful cutie-pie who wants to show her there's more to life than a series of meaningless flings. Set against a backdrop of family drama — with Nat Wolff as Lily's sad panda of a lit ...

Just released, Oct. 5 Dark Shadows A funny update starring Johnny Depp as the vampire Barnabas Collins, this Tim Burton film juggles a variety of comic conceits with success. Peace, Love & Misunderstanding Bruce Beresford's noodly comedy-drama tells of a suddenly single lawyer (Catherine Keener) who takes her two grouchy teens (Elizabeth Olsen and Nat Wolff) to visit their hippie-grandma (Jane Fonda) in Woodstock, N.Y. The film is peopled with so many flaky characters and psychedelic truisms that you just might choke on the scent of patchouli. People Like Us Screenwriter Alex Kurtzman ("Star Trek") makes his directorial debut with this pretty but airless film about a wheeler-dealer (Chris Pine) who befriends his long-lost half-sister (Elizabeth Banks) and her son (Michael Hall D'Addario) but fails to tell her he's, um, her brother.

    More Details Hide Details He played the lead role, Quentin "Q" Jacobsen, a teenage boy in love with his neighbor (played Cara Delevingne). Writing for Variety, critic Justin Chang stated: "Wolff, who's present in just about every scene, manages to hold the center as a young man who isn't overly concerned about either standing out or fitting in, and whose behavior can often be as hesitant as it is impulsive." He will star in the Off-Broadway revival of Sam Shepard's play Buried Child with Ed Harris and Taissa Farmiga. The production is scheduled to run from February 2 through March 13, 2016. Wolff's upcoming film projects include starring roles in Death Note, the American remake of the 2006 Japanese psychological thriller of the same name, and the independent thriller Rosy to be directed by Jessica Manafort.

When Nat and his younger brother Alex were toddlers, they arose from the bathtub shouting: "We're the naked brothers band!" Their father tells of Nat teaching himself to play major and minor chords on the piano when he was four years old. As his father recalls: "I asked him, How did you learn them?' He said, 'Dad, they're right here.' I said, 'What are those chords?' He said, 'These are my proud chords."
