Apparently, James Franco has a bone to pick with the New York Times' theater critic. And it's anything but bite-size. The 35-year-old thesp, who made his Broadway debut in Of Mice and Men during the play's official opening on April 16, took to Instagram to vent his frustrations after the Nyt's Ben Brantley wrote a scathing review of production, in which he slammed Franco's performance. Directed by Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County), Of Mice and Men stars Franco as dreamer George and Chris O'Dowd as simple-minded Lennie as well as Leighton Meester, who plays Curley's wife, yet even with the star-studded cast, Brantley was left unimpressed. "Somehow Ms. Shapiro's »

“What you see is mostly improvised,” explains Meester, who stars as underachieving lesbian Sasha in the film directed by Susanna Fogel and written by Joni Lefkowitz. “I hadn’t had a lot of experience with free-for-all improvisation, but I felt that trying new things was really fun and helped make me feel more connected to the character. She is flawed, and that’s what I related to most.”

But the actress, who is currently starring in Of Mice and Men on Broadway, opened up about working with her husband in the upcoming comedy Life Partners. "Yeah, that pesky guy," the Gossip Girl alum joked with Newsday during a recent interview about their onscreen collaboration. "It's about finding each other, and how it kinda hurts to change and grow...for the better, even. It was the best. We basically got to say whatever came to our minds. There was a lot of improv."

James Franco, Chris O’Dowd and “Gossip Girl’s” Leighton Meester all made their Broadway debut last night (Apr. 16) in an adaption of John Steinbeck’s novel Of Mice and Men and put together a nuanced performance that drew mostly critical raves.

They say if you can make it in New York City, you can make it anywhere. Which may explain why so many stars are taking to the Great White Way with roles in Broadway shows this year. Another possible explanation for a move to New York: CitiBikes, cronuts and the proximity to Beyoncé and Jay Z.
This season, Broadway is especially jam-packed with huge names from the big and small screens. Some of these performers have already topped the film and music industries, and have a background in theater; making their Broadway debut in a high-profile production seems like the next logical step. For Daniel Radcliffe and Bradley Cooper, performing to a house of people who may or may not have turned off their cell phones is old hat. Denzel Washington has previously starred in Broadway productions of Checkmates, Julius Caesar and won a Tony Award for Fences, »

Dare we say it's like Chrismakkah?! Adam Brody (also now known as "hubby" to one Mrs. Leighton Meester) is coming back to television in a new Amazon dramedy pilot called The Cosmopolitans, about a group of young American expatriates in Paris searching for love and friendship. Chloe Sevigny, Carrie MacLemore and Dree Hemingway also star. Amazon announced the project today. (That pretty much puts the final nail in Sevigny's A&E-turned-Lifetime series Those Who Kill now, doesn't it?) This marks Brody's first series regular role since The O.C. bowed out in 2007. He most recently appeared on Fox's New Girl in a short run as Zooey Deschanel's ex-boyfriend. And of course, made »

Blair Waldorf, the next singing sensation?
Leighton Meester has apparently been hiding a golden set of pipes, since the "Gossip Girl" alum just released a beautiful cover of "Fleetwood Mac" on Wednesday (March 26). Meester and her singer/songwriter friend Dana Williams recorded a gorgeous, harmonizing version of "Dreams" and put the performance up on YouTube for the rest of the world to watch over and over and over again.
Now, this song brings up a lot of questions, but the biggest one is why didn't Meester ever sing on her CW hit series? Her fans got a taste of what she could do in "Country Strong," but hearing Meester sing something other than country is even more impressive. Just imagine all of the awesome musical episodes of "Gossip Girl" the world will never see. Tragic.
Listen to her cover below:
