In a rather surprising development, Amazon plans to start selling fanfic. Really. The online retailer will let fanfic writers sell their Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars or Vampire Diaries-inspired stories and keep a portion of the sale. All three series are based on books brought to TV by Alloy Entertainment and Amazon says its working to get more properties into the mix. Now, anyone knows if they’ve banned crossovers? It would be fun to see how “A” and Gossip Girl would react to each other.
Why aren’t there more hosting gigs that include moments of shirtlessness?

Starting out as a commercial model, Fatima Ptacek probably never thought she'd one day be the voice of an iconic animated character while attending the Oscars in the very same year. At only 12 years old, Ptacek has performed in the Oscar-winning 19 minute short Curfew written and directed by Shawn Christensen, and is currently the voice of Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer.
We recently caught up with Ptacek, as she revealed what it was really like to attend the Oscars and after parties, what it was like to film a Sesame Street with a very special guest, and how she was shocked to find out about landing Dora without even auditioning--well, sort of.

Daniel Radcliffe says drunk people confess their problems to him. The 'Harry Potter' actor - who gave up alcohol in 2010 after drinking to excess while filming the latter half of the eight-film wizard saga - often finds he emotionally 'provokes' intoxicated fans into revealing their troubles and believes it is his celebrity status which makes people so open and honest towards him. He said: ' I've been people's confidant in pubs. Somebody will be drunk and start telling you something about their relationship with their parents. You can end up provoking a huge range of reactions.' The 23-year-old star shot to fame when he was just 11 as Harry Potter but, despite the franchise's huge success, he is »
Los Angeles, May 20: Australian director Baz Luhrmann regrets leaving the opportunity to direct the first edition of "Harry Potter" franchise because he was busy with something else.
The movie adaptation of author J.K. Rowling's 10-part wizard story was a huge hit and all books were made into movies starting from 2001, but Luhrmann turned down the offer because he was filming "Moulin Rouge!", reports dailystar.co.uk.

In "Kill your Darlings," slated for release later this year, Daniel Radcliffe plays Allen Ginsberg, who befriends writers William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac while in college.

But Beiber isn’t off the hook, owing thousands of euros for the monkey’s care, which German officials say “You can bet we are going to ask for that money back. »

Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars
Every young actor who builds a career in a huge franchise needs a transforming role to announce themselves as a “serious actor,” which almost counts doubly for the child and teen stars of both Twilight and Harry Potter. Some, like Robert Pattinson, have just about managed it – Daniel Radcliffe too – but others like Kristen Stewart and Rupert Grint are still unhappily tied to their first roles (despite Stewart’s best efforts.)
Now comes the turn of Emma Watson, all grown up from Harry Potter’s pompous brain-box Hermione Grainger and already with The Perks Of Being A Wallflower under her belt – which was good, but hardly too transformative – as she takes on a key role in Sofia Coppola’s Thief Girls Gone Wild tale The Bling Ring. She isn’t a main focus, but she’s very good, regardless of early problems with her accent, and »

Jake Adelstein has had quite an extraordinary life, as told in his book "Tokyo Vice: An American Reporter On The Police Beat in Japan" which chronicles his time as crime reporter for the famous newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun. In addition to the fascinating and bizarre world of crime in Japan, Jake became heavily involved with the Yakuza to the point where his life and family were threatened. Having also spoken to Jake after reading his fantastic book (one of my favorite non-fiction novels), I was ecstatic to hear recent news that it was being made into a feature film with Daniel Radcliffe playing him as a younger man. Jake recently gave me some time to answer a few quick questions about the anticipated project.Twitch: Who expressed...
