Leighton and Adam Are Even Cuter When They're With Their Dogs

29 July 2014 5:32 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Leighton Meester and Adam Brody took their two adorable pups out for a walk in NYC on Monday. The couple stayed close to one another during part of the walk - including when responsible dog owner Leighton picked up after her dog - but later split up as the actress headed to a tennis court to play with her furry friends. Leighton and Adam had been spending the first part of their Summer in the Big Apple while Leighton worked on her play, Of Mice and Men, on Broadway. However, the couple's future home base may be up in the air soon, as Leighton's play officially wrapped up on Sunday. The two had originally been living in La, but it isn't clear if they will return to the West Coast anytime soon. Either way, Leighton's play went out with a bang as it broke the $1 million mark for sales in its final week. »

Conversation with John Michael McDonagh, Brendan Gleeson, Chris O'Dowd and Joyce Carol Oates about Calvary

26 July 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Brendan Gleeson, John Michael McDonagh, Kelly Reilly and Chris O'Dowd on Calvary at the Explorers Club: "I can't go on. I'll go on" Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

After Kelly Reilly came three Calvary men - John Michael McDonagh, Brendan Gleeson and Chris O'Dowd. With McDonagh, I voyage through his many literary references, from Samuel Beckett to Herman Melville, from Albert Camus to James Joyce, and from Philip K. Dick to David Gates' Jernigan. James Cagney's Shanghai Lil with Busby Berkeley's choreography in Footlight Parade reveals Angels With Dirty Faces as another influence.

Peggy Siegal used her magic to snare O'Dowd, who is starring with James Franco on Broadway in John Steinbeck's Of Mice And Men with Leighton Meester and Jim Norton, directed by Anna D. Shapiro. Joyce Carol Oates, who sat next to me during lunch, elegantly sums up Calvary.

David Dobkin's 'The Judge' Selected as Toronto Film Festival Opening Night Film

25 July 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can't lie, I expected something more from the Toronto Film Festival when they didn't announce an opening night film with their lineup earlier this week. Now it turns out they announced the film, just not the fact it was going to serve as the opener, which easily leads us to believe they were hoping for something else but didn't get it. Announced just this morning, David Dobkin's The Judge starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall will serve as the fest's opening night film. In the film Downey plays big city lawyer Hank Palmer who returns to his childhood home where his estranged father, the town's judge (Duvall), is suspected of murder. He sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.

A serious attempt to understand Blake Lively's Goop-like website

21 July 2014 6:06 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

“So Blake Lively just launched her Goop” is how someone explained Blake Lively’s new website to me a few hours ago. Now, I am not a cynical person. I believe in giving everything at least half a chance. I can acknowledge that Goop is a thing that people care about, even though nobody can figure out whether to spell it “Goop” or “goop” or “Goop.”

And to the extent that every generation needs their Goop–just like every generation needs a hero or a Highlander or a defining entry in the MarioKart series–Blake Lively seems like someone who could pull that off. »

Leighton and Adam Are Still the Perfect Couple You Dream Of

18 July 2014 6:07 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Leighton Meester and Adam Brody took their dogs for a walk in NYC on Thursday ahead of Leighton's evening show for her Broadway play, Of Mice and Men. The actress and the play have been getting quite a bit of attention this week after Leighton penned an article for Huffington Post where she discussed the feminist subtext of her character, Curley's wife, who is also the only female character in both the John Steinbeck classic and the play. The actress wrote, "If this woman is purely a victim, why is she so hated? And if she is truly harmless, why is she so threatening? Without question, it was a commentary on the social climate at the time, which still surprisingly applies today." Leighton has been open about her feminist ideals, including saying that gender-equality icon Betty Friedan is her role model. »

Life Partners | 2014 Outfest Los Angeles Lgbt Film Festival Review

14 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

She’s the One: Fogel’s Debut a Top Tier Examination of Co-Dependent Friendship

Borrowing shades of autobiographical instances from their own lives, director Susanna Fogel and co-writer Joni Lefkowitz’s feature film debut, Life Partners, transcends the corral of niche markets and anchoring labels with its enthusiastic relatability as one of the most realistic examples of life’s circumstances forcing friends (a little bit) apart. Devoid of soapboxing subtexts or proselytizing with political agendas, Lefkowitz’s tender, sharply observed script gets fleshed out by a handful of genuinely engaging performances from both leads and supporting players. Familiar themes are presented refreshingly as Fogel expertly guides the film through the precarious catwalk of striking just the right balance between light drama and inventive comedy, inviting us to laugh at and with a strikingly composed cast of rich characters.

Best friends Sasha (Leighton Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs) have been inseparable platonic soul mates, »

‘Scandal’s’ Dan Bucatinsky Talks Emmys, Lgbt Community at Outfest Film Festival

11 July 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scandal’s” Dan Bucatinsky stopped by the opening night of L.A.’s Outfest Film Festival to show support to the Lgbt community and to talk Emmys and his life after “Scandal.”

Bucatinsky won the Emmy last year for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for “Scandal,” but this year the Academy did not recognize the actor for his role as James Novak.

“I was snubbed,” he laughed. But the actor did give his congrats to former castmates Joe Morton, Kate Burton and Kerry Washington.

“’Scandal’ is something that was one of the most important career moves of my life and it was incredible. The cast will always be family to me,” he told Variety.

But life after “Scandal” looks promising for Bucatinsky, whose TLC show with writing partner Lisa Kudrow “Who Do You Think You Are?” received an Emmy nod yesterday.

14 Fan Photos Of James Franco Hating the World

6 July 2014 9:01 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

James Franco is  headlining The Great White Way in the classic Of Mice and Men (also starring Leighton Meester and Chris O’Dowd). And you know what that means? Fan Selfies After The Show, Duh.

It’s customary for Broadway actors to meet fans after the show for autographs and photos. Since this is Franco’s debut, he’s a little…erm, rusty to the meet-and-greet game. Some days, he’s happy and bubbly to see his admirers lined up to touch his hand. Other days he looks like he hates everything ever made ever. And the contrast of a fan’s goofy grin and Franco’s “f–k the world” face is pretty darn hilarious. Some might say he’s the new Grumpy Cat (read: we’re saying it). Maybe he’s still spooked from the time he tried to pick up a teenager…?

Which Celebrity Wedding Surprised You the Most?

1 July 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Celebrity couples are always in the spotlight, but some of them manage to pull off secret weddings. Sometimes it's a longtime couple keeping their nuptials hush-hush until the last minute, like Beyoncé and Jay Z, who wed in April 2008 and just recently released wedding footage, or Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady, whose friends thought they were going to a christening. Other times, it's a fast turnaround from the engagement to the wedding, like for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, who wed after six weeks, and Adam Brody and Leighton Meester, who waited three months before saying their "I dos." Sometimes it's all about small, quiet ceremonies, like for Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas and Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who wed in California and South Carolina, respectively. Meanwhile, some stars opt for the beach, like Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck in Turks and Caicos and Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green in Hawaii, »
