Anne Rice is bringing her famed vampire Lestat back for a new novel, "Prince Lestat." Almost immediately, this news got fans going about who should play the devilish and charming undead man. Rice herself seems to have three picks: Stephen Amell ("Arrow"), Chris Hemsworth ("Thor") and Anson Mount ("Hell on Wheels").
The author explained her choices in a Facebook post:
"I love all the Lestats you're posting on the page, the handsome actors and charmers. But let us not forget Chris Hemsworth who has Lestat's square face, cheerful eyes, and voice. And let us not forget Stephen Amell either who also greatly resembles Lestat and has the body and face of a god; and also Anson Mount who seemed at times to be Lestat prowling the frontier in 'Hell on Wheels.'"

Reboots, remakes, and re-imaginings have never been exclusive to films. Television has often drawn from that well, taking an old concept and rehashing it to draw in a new crowd while appealing to fans of the original. Sometimes it’s wildly successful and sometimes it falls flat on its face.

Then there are shows like Battlestar Galactica that prove that ‘reboot »

Penn And Theron Step Out At The J/P Hro Gala
Rumors of a romance between Penn and Theron have been in full swing since the twosome was spotted vacationing together in Hawaii over the holidays. Following their Hawaiian vacation, Penn and Theron were spotted leaving Theron’s home in California the morning of Tuesday, Jan. 2.

He was known in the 80s as Hollywood’s bad boy and she’s had an impeccable reputation within the industry; they have a 15-year age difference between them and yet Charlize and Sean’s budding romance seems to make sense.
