Back in 2008, we posted episodes of Joni & Susanna, the WB web series written by and starring real life BFFs Joni Lefkowitz and Susana Fogel. After that introduction, the two have moved on to work on several projects together, including the upcoming ABC Family series Chasing Life and the play-turned-film Life Partners, which has had some exciting developments since we last spoke with Joni in 2011.
In the opening scene the two are at a pride parade, where Paige (not a lesbian) drunkenly declares that she will not get married until Sasha can too. This is all hypothetical of course, as neither woman is in a relationship. Years pass and Paige falls in love with a man. When he pops the question she says "yes, »
Though the real life couple is in the lead cast, but they won't be playing on-screen couples. Meester, seen in "Gossip Girl", will play a lesbian.
The couple was seen together in romantic comedy "The Oranges", where Meester played the role of Nina Ostroff and Brody was seen as Toby Walling.

Here’s why Life Partners, the directorial debut of Susanna Fogel, already sounds promising: Adam Brody, Leighton Meester and Gillian Jacobs are all set to star in it! What sounds even better, they are all on board to tell us a quite weird story about a codependent friendship between two very different girls… Fogel directs the movie from a script she co-wrote with Joni Lefkowitz, and according to the latest reports, the whole thing will revolve around: …a two very different girls: type-a Paige and lesbian slacker Sasha. Paige has vowed that she won’t get married until Sasha has the same legal right and that works...

Leighton Meester and Adam Brody just can't seem to get enough of each other. The couple, who already spend plenty of time together in real life, are now set to share some time onscreen, as costars in the upcoming comedy Life Partners, Deadline reports. The two obviously have chemistry, but don't expect any romantic sparks to fly between them in the movie. Helmed by first-time director Susanna Fogel (who also co-wrote the screenplay), the film is about a girl named Paige (played by Community's Gillian Jacobs), who [...] »

• Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) is reportedly in talks to join Christopher Nolan’s (The Dark Knight Rises) time-travel epic, Interstellar. She’d be joining a cast that currently includes Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey. Since she’s started getting more significant roles, Chastain has never really ventured into pure science fiction territory (we’re not counting Take Shelter). She famously dropped out of Oblivion when offered the Zero Dark Thirty role, so we’re excited for her to take on a new kind of film. The two-time Oscar nominee (The Help, Zero Dark Thirty) is currently filming Liv Ullmann »

Hi! Where are you right now and what are you doing?
I am home in New York, eating oatmeal. It's one of the first beautiful days of the year, so I think I may go to the park. Lay in the sun, on the grass, get some fresh air. That's really all I have planned.
I thought movie stars were too busy to do that sort of thing?
When you're working hard and the hours are long, yeah. You're not sleeping much, you don't have the time or energy for anything else. But when you're not …
You can be a bum?
Exactly. It's a beautiful balance.

As Pajiba recently pointed out, native Texan Ferguson was plucked out of obscurity to play the role of Ponyboy Curtis in the TV adaptation of the feature film "The Outsiders" in 1989. He moved out to Los Angeles at the age of 14 for the part and has been working pretty steadily since.
Here he is in 1990:
Ferguson was quite the teen magazine regular:
After "The Outisders" was cancelled 13 episodes in, Ferguson was cast in the Burt Reynolds-fronted sitcom "Evening Shade." He starred on the CBS comedy as Reynolds' character's eldest son throughout the show's four-season run. »

Last night’s flashback-tastic New Girl episode, “Virgins,” was a treasure trove of music to set the mood — some songs more successfully than others — as the loftmates looked back on their first sexual encounters. Anchoring the eclectic mix (which ranged from Sublime to Boyz II Men and even figured in Lisa Loeb), Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Could Happen” kicked in during a fan-fulfilling scene between Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel).
It got us thinking of some of our favorite first-time anthems from shows of yore. Below, our ultimate Spotify playlist of coupling tracks!

★★☆☆☆ With second film The Oranges (2011), Julian Farino is still a far way off securing any form of distinctive directorial style, his latest a simplistic story of small-town outrage. Nina Ostroff (Leighton Meester) returns home and is quickly introduced to the Walling family's eligible son Toby (Adam Brody), but the neighbouring families are shocked to learn that she has her eyes on his father, David (Hugh Laurie). Cue heated arguments about the age gap and some misplaced moments of comedy. With modern cinema currently under siege from quirky rom-coms and offbeat dramedies, we're hardly in need of any new contributions.
And yet, The Oranges could easily have benefited from a greater injection of such aforementioned whimsy. In all likelihood, it's an American film which would have unravelled the peculiar dynamics of suburban scandal had Tim Burton or Wes Anderson been in the director's hot-seat. Instead, Farino struggles to elude the melodramatic »

Even as Ang Lee's Life of Pi (2012, Fox, PG) picked up Oscars for direction, cinematography, music and, crucially, visual effects, there was disgruntlement among the VFX effects team that their work on the movie had not been sufficiently recognised. Certainly, the digital wizardry is extraordinary, making the audience believe that they have been cast adrift on an endless ocean with a man-eating tiger, putting us right there in the lifeboat with the story's titular hero. All the more tragic, then, that Rhythm & Hues, which provided so much of the film's computer graphic magic, had filed for bankruptcy just before the Oscars, the latest victim of a downward spiral that had seen VFX artists become the most important but least valued craftspeople in Hollywood.
The irony, of course, is that visual effects are often at their best when unnoticed, and the real triumph of Life of Pi »
