Huffington Post - 9 months
Lindsay Lohan is back ― and she brought an epic lob hairdo with her.  We all let out a collective “grool!” upon hearing the news that Lohan will appear alongside Rupert Grint and Nick Frost in the second season of the British comedy “Sick Note.” But while excitement over her return to acting is palpable, it’s Lohan’s updated look that’s giving everyone feelings ― even people who don’t even go to this school. She posted an Instagram photo from the set showing off a sharp asymmetrical red lob.  A post shared by Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) on Jun 12, 2017 at 2:19am PDT It’s not yet clear if Lohan’s hairstyle is just a wig for the show ― one day prior she posted a photo with longer locks ― but that didn’t stop the internet from blessing us with its best, most fetch reactions.  From “X-Files” comparisons to some LOL-worthy commentary, check our favorites below.  I mean I wasn't into an X-Files reboot but this castings isn't bad. pic.twitter....

Rowling, there are a lot of things that don’t make sense in the “Harry Potter” series. For example, there’s no discussion of kids taking subjects like math and science. If Muggles have to suffer through algebra, wizard kids should, too. And why didn’t Voldemort just break Harry Potter’s glasses or something? So many plot holes. So little time. Beyond these little annoyances, one glaring plot hole remains the chosen one: Why didn...

'Snatch' Trailer Basically Shows What Would Happen If Ron Weasley Was A Slytherin
Huffington Post - about 1 year
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.

The Hilarious Reason Daniel Radcliffe Was Cast As Harry Potter
Huffington Post - about 1 year
By the time the first “Harry Potter” film was entering production, the character was already known by millions as The Boy Who Lived; but casting director Janet Hirshenson was just hoping he was The Boy Who Lived Somewhere ... Anywhere ... It’s been 15 years since we saw Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint bring Harry, Hermione and Ron to life in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” but apparently the road there wasn’t as smooth as the Hogwarts Express ― unless you’re thinking about that time Dementors attacked it. Hirshenson told The Huffington Post that another casting director had been working on the project for a year by the time she joined it. Because of that, some of the parts ― such as Ron and Hermione ― were already narrowed down to a few options. Harry, however, remained elusive. One of the hurdles was that Harry, like all the main actors, had to be British. The casting director said the only American tested for Potter was Liam Aiken...

21 Hotels You Didn't Know Were Owned by Celebrities (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post - about 2 years
More and more celebrities have been investing their Hollywood money in the hospitality sector as of late--restaurants, nightclubs, and transportation services, to name a few. But it's celebrity owned hotels that have most recently been thrust into the limelight, though not always for the most delightful of reasons. The Nobu Hotel in Manila, which is co-owned by Robert DeNiro, was recently named the world's worst. Rigsby's Guest House, of which Harry Potter star Rupert Grint is the sole shareholder, was closed due to poor sales. However, not all celebrities have seen such failures when dabbling within the hospitality industry: Andy Murray's Cromlix Hotel has received consistently excellent reviews since its opening in 2014, and Robert Redford's Sundance Resort remains one of Utah's finest. Leonardo Dicpario made headlines with the purchase of a $1.75 million dollar island in Belize, where he plans to build a sprawling, eco-conscious resort, set to open in 2018. Related: The World'...

For An Entire Generation, Alan Rickman Will Always Be Severus Snape
Huffington Post - about 2 years
The death of Alan Rickman at age 69, following a battle with cancer, has hit movie fans, both serious and casual, for innumerable reasons. He starred in "Die Hard," "Love Actually," "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," and "Sense and Sensibility"; he voiced iconic characters like Marvin the Paranoid Android in the film adaptation of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the caterpillar in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland." All over my Facebook and Twitter feeds, however, I see how hard it is for fans to separate him from one particular role: Severus Snape, a character he played in all eight of the "Harry Potter" films.  Those movies bulged with acclaimed British actors, from Michael Gambon to Emma Thompson, yet it was Alan Rickman who immediately seemed like he'd lived within the dark corridors and looming turrets of Hogwarts long before the cameras started rolling. He embodied Snape so fully he seemed like part of the scenery -- a particularly unforgettable ...
