J.K. Rowling has urged actor Matthew Lewis to “put some clothes on”

1 hour ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

J.K. Rowling has urged actor Matthew Lewis to “put some clothes on”.

The ‘Harry Potter’ author was left shocked after she spotted the 25-year-old star – who played Neville Longbottom in the popular series of films – wearing minimal clothes in the latest issue of Attitude magazine, insisting he covers up in future.

Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “I will always support you whatever you want to do, Matthew. Now go put some clothes on.”

The 49-year-old writer – who is currently working on the script for ‘Harry Potter’ spin-off film ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ – admitted the risqué shoot wasn’t as bad as when the franchise’s lead actor Daniel Radcliffe bared his genitals in an on-stage version of the play ‘Equus’ on London’s West End.

She added: “Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God’s sake.”

Neville Longbottom and J.K. Rowling Have a Cringeworthy Twitter Exchange

16 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Matthew Lewis, best known for playing the role of Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films, has become equally well-known for his epic transformation from chubby misfit to scorching-hot cover boy. Matthew appears in the June 2015 issue of the British magazine Attitude wearing little more than underwear and an open cardigan, and the sexy snaps got the attention of many - including the author of the Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowling. After seeing the racy photos, the writer tweeted to Matthew, saying, "Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God's sake," referring to Daniel Radcliffe going nude when he starred in the play in 2007. What followed was a hilariously sweet social media exchange that is bound to make you blush. Read the tweets below, and keep scrolling for Matthew's hot Attitude pictures. .@Mattdavelewis Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. »

Neville Longbottom Got Ripped (and Made J.K. Rowling Uncomfortable)

19 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Matthew Lewis, the actor behind beloved "Harry Potter" character Neville Longbottom, has made headlines before for how much he's changed since his debut as an awkward preteen in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." Now, the British babe is once again making waves with his appearance -- and making author J.K. Rowling uncomfortable in the process.

Lewis is the latest cover star for Attitude magazine, and the actor went all-out for the occasion, showing off an impressive set of abs (and making good on the headline, "From Hogwarts to Hottie"). Things got steamier inside the mag, with a photo of Lewis showing off...well, you can imagine (or check out the pic for yourself here).But while many fans swooned over the images, there was one person whose reaction wasn't entirely positive. In a post on Twitter, Rowling compared her response to Lewis's racy photoshoot to her shock in seeing »

Rockstar is suing the BBC over Daniel Radcliffe's Grand Theft Auto drama Game Over

20 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Rockstar is taking legal action against the BBC over its upcoming Grand Theft Auto drama.

Game Changer, which revolves around the court battles between Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar and Miami lawyer Jack Thompson, is in danger of being derailed due to a trademark lawsuit of its own filed against the BBC by Rockstar.

Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two told IGN that the company has tried to resolve the issue with the BBC to no avail.

"While holders of the trademarks are referenced in the film title and its promotion, Rockstar Games has had no involvement with this project," it said.

"Our goal is to ensure that our trademarks are not misused in the BBC's pursuit of an unofficial depiction of purported events related to Rockstar Games.

"We have attempted multiple times to resolve this matter with the BBC without any meaningful resolution.

Cannes: StarStream Media backs ‘Young Americans’

8 May 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Dane DeHaan and Daniel Radcliffe are reuniting with their Kill Your Darlings director John Krokidas to play the young Republican consultant Karl Rove and strategist Lee Atwater alongside Amanda Seyfried.

Xyz Films will handle international sales in Cannes on the story, based on true events surrounding a wild road trip the two friends undertook in the 1970s.

In Young Americans the cross-country journey becomes something of a crash course in dirty tricks as the pair encounter a young political femme fatale.

Bruce Cohen and Liz Destro of Destro Films are producing alongside Kim Leadford of StarStream Media and Frank Frattaroli of Circle Of Confusion.

UTA Independent packaged the film and will be representing North American rights.

Principal photography is scheduled to kick off in autumn.

Young Americans marks the third collaboration between StarStream and Xyz Films after Kevin Smith’s Yoga Hosers and Jeff Baena’s Life After Beth. »

Grand Theft Auto should make great TV – but so would these gaming backstories

6 May 2015 4:13 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With the BBC planning a drama about the creators of Grand Theft Auto, here are some other big moments from video game history that would make gripping TV

So far, film and television writers have managed to completely overlook the games business, a $60bn a year creative industry that has produced 40 years of sex, drugs and intrigue. Well Ok – mostly intrigue. But in April, however, we all discovered that the BBC is planning a drama about Grand Theft Auto publisher Rockstar and its legal face-offs with loose cannon lawyer Jack Thompson. There is considerable star power involved too, with Daniel Radcliffe set to play Rockstar co-founder Sam Houser and Bill Paxton lined up as anti-gamers campaigner, Thompson.

So now the lid has been prised from the Pandora’s Box that is the games industry, what other juicy controversies could be mined for TV material? Here are eight candidates.

Juno Temple on Far From the Madding Crowd, Johnny Depp's Black Mass transformation, and rock 'n' roll

1 May 2015 4:57 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Listing the Coen Brothers, Spike Jonze, and Paul Thomas Anderson as her Bucket List of directors with whom to work, Juno Temple’s film choices are best described as eclectic. The daughter of rock and roll filmmaker Julien Temple, Juno had a creative, rebellious spirit instilled in her at an early age, and her career has reflected that greatly.

Starring opposite Matthew McConaughey in Killer Joe and Daniel Radcliffe in Horns, she’s never been one to back away from darker roles. On the other hand, she’s also completely willing to play dress-up every once and a while. You may remember her as a fairy in Maleficent or as Queen Anne, dripping in pearls and lace, in Paul W. S. Anderson’s The Three Musketeers.

Juno’s next film is Far From the Madding Crowd, which was directed by Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt) and also stars Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone »

Matt Lauer is the latest celeb to take of Vogue's "73 Questions" challenge, where he answers 73 questions in lightning speed! In the clip, the "Today" veteran admitted what it's really like to work with his co-hosts, picked the tweet he wished he had never published and which Kardashian sister he relates to the most. The 57-year-old newsman also was asked about his toughest interview, his most memorable morning show moment, and Martha Stewart asked him to list his favorite food (pizza, of course!). His best answer came when he was asked about his signature cocktail. "Vodka with a twist of Ambien," he joked.  We all know that Matt has a tendency to dress as a woman for Halloween -- remember when he dressed up as Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton and a "Baywatch" babe?

First Look At Frankenstein

26 April 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The story of Victor Frankenstein and his monstrous creation has being brought to the big screen quite a few times before, and now it's director Paul McGuigan's (Lucky Number Slevin) to bring a new version of Mary Shelley's classic tale to life. Told from Igor's (Daniel Radcliffe) perspective, the screenplay comes from Chronicle writer Max Landis, and Empire have the first look at Radcliffe and James McAvoy as the titular mad scientist, giving us a great look at the gothic tone of the piece. Frankenstein is a story I love in all its forms (well, most at the very least), and I find myself looking forward to McGuigan's take on the tale. Released: October 2nd »

MTV has cancelled the thriller Eye Candy after one season. Series star Victoria Justice made the announcement via twitter.

Hi everyone!
