“The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. »

Kick-Ass princess Chloe Grace Moretz stars in this provocative road caper as Luli, a teenage runaway who bales out on her neglectful parents (Juliette Lewis and Anson Mount) to thumb her way to Vegas. But any illusions of finding a rainbow at the end of this yellow brick road are soon shattered, first by creepy cowboy Eddie Redmayne, then by Blake Lively, subverting her Gossip Girl image as the trashy grifter who becomes Luli's guide. Think Thelma & Louise meets Lolita. »

Exclusive: MGM has acquired screen rights to Things I’ve Learned From Women Who’ve Dumped Me, the best-selling humor anthology edited by Ben Karlin. Script will be written by Kyle Pennekamp & Scott Turpel, who scripted the upcoming Get A Job. Karlin is the Emmy-winning former executive producer of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. In the book, he drew on his own experiences and those of many other men to share that shame walk that has happened to every guy: getting dumped and trying to get over the humiliation. The film will be produced by Karlin and Kevin Misher, who’s readying the MGM remake of Carrie that Kimberly Peirce directed with Chloe Moretz playing the title character and Julianne Moore as her mother. Andy Berman will serve as executive producer. They’ll cull the Dumped book for the ingredients to a male-oriented comedy. Karlin, who co-wrote America »

We were on the blue carpet at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, and it was the perfect time to ask two very important questions: what's your go-to karaoke song, and what did you do when you heard your music on the radio for the first time? Something really magical happened when Boyz II Men stopped by to give their answers - plus Akon, Miguel, Chloë Moretz, and more also get in on the action! »

Anyone who's watched an episode of "30 Rock" should know the brand of humor that Tracy Morgan brings with him. The comedian didn't disappoint when he hosted the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, cracking jokes about listing off the black artists at the awards show first and having no one look quite as attractive as Condoleeza Rice. And when he stumbled in his introductions of presenters like Chloe Moretz and gave a strange but well-meant shout out to Michael Jackson, it was in line with the type of personality Morgan has developed over the years.
All in all, Morgan actually did a pretty decent job hosting the Billboard Music Awards -- or at least as good as could have been expected. But who thought that Morgan would be the right comedian to host an awards show that honors musicians? Morgan isn't in the same generation as Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, »
Red carpets are always fraught with questionable fashion choices. Case in point -- Jennifer Morrison (above, far left) apparently forgot to put a dress on. But at least she's wearing her good underwear.
We also are not sure what is going on with -- are those birds on Carly Rae Jepsen's (above, middle left) chest? And Miley Cyrus (above, middle) looks like a Commedia dell'Arte meets a doily. We also aren't in love with Chloe Moretz's (above, middle right) color-block dress, and Chris Brown looks like the Evil Dr. Huxtable.
Below, we aren't really sure who Nayer (left) and Z Lala (right) are, but we definitely think they should've gone another way for the Billboards. Maybe this is their way of announcing their presence with authority.
Who do you think was worst-dressed for the Billboard Music Awards 2013?
In the upcoming Antoine Fuqua-directed big-screen adaptation of “The Equalizer”, Denzel Washington will play a former CIA killer who has retired to a life of loneliness, reading books, drinking in coffee shops, and working at the Home Depot. Then Russian pimps get under his skin and it’s asskicking time. Watch out, Russian pimps! New Zealand actor Marton Csokas (Celeborn from the “The Lord of the Rings” films) has now joined the cast of “The Equalizer” as the film’s villain, described as “a vicious fixer for the Russian” mob. Besides the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, Csokas was also in “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” (though he’d probably love you to forget about this one), and will be playing Damian Lord in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” (a potentially more memorable role — or at least, compared to “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter »
As it finally crawls from development hell, the cinematic version of cult Edward Woodward show The Equalizer is marshalling its troops. Denzel Washington has long been attached to the lead, and he now has a nemesis, with Marton Csokas locked in to play the villain.The Equalizer will find Washington in a slightly different take on Robert McCall, the retired intelligence officer who decides to atone for his past sins by helping the hopeless.Working quietly at a Home Depot, McCall finds himself drawn into the life of a crusading vigilante when he helps out a young prostitute (Chloe Moretz). His actions draw the ire of the Russian mafia, and in particular a brutal fixer plated by Csokas.Antoine Fuqua is hoisting the megaphone for the movie, which is set to kick off shooting this summer in Boston.Csokas has been busy of late, playing Dr Kafka in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and, »
For Sony Pictures, the journey of bringing the 1980s television series The Equalizer to the big screen has been riddled with setbacks. After initially securing Denzel Washington in the lead role, the film flirted with various different filmmakers before Antoine Fuqua took up the directing mantle back in March. And now, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Marton Csokas will play the film’s chief antagonist.
Orbiting around a former covert operations officer, The Equalizer charts the story of Robert McCall. A retiree seeking redemption for his past sins by helping people in need. Unfortunately, it’s this save-the-world attitude that irks the Russian mob after McCall offers help to a wayward prostitute – who will be played by Chloe Grace Moretz –, thereby kicking the plot into motion. While we don’t know the specifics of Csokas’ role, it would be safe to assume that the New Zealand actor will adopt a villainous Russian persona. »

We’ve known for quite some time now that Denzel Washington would lead the big-screen remake of cult 1980s series The Equalizer. A few months ago Antoine Fuqua was finally confirmed to reunite with his Training Day Oscar-winner and named the director after both Nicolas Winding Refn and Rupert Wyatt’s failed to agree terms in negotiations. Less than a week ago we learned Chloe Grace Moretz would portray the teen hooker needing the desperate help of Washington’s retired operative Robert McCall, previously played by the late, great Edward Woodward.
Well, we now know the sadistic villain of the piece will be a member of the Russian mafia, with New Zealander Marton Csokas taking on the role. The actor is best known for his roles in The Lord Of The Rings, The Bourne Supremacy and The Debt. He was most recently seen in the under-loved yet enjoyable Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter »

What is Casting Couch? It’s tying a nice bow on this work week with casting news concerning lovely ladies like Michelle Yeoh, Olga Kurylenko, and Chloe Moretz. Oh yeah, and there’s some stuff about some dudes in there too. The upcoming adaptation of the Steven Sondheim musical Into the Woods that Rob Marshall has been putting together for Disney hasn’t been too secretive about its casting process. James Corden is rumored to be on board as the film’s lead, the Baker, we know for sure that mega-stars Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep are signed for sizzle roles as the wolf and the witch, and we even recently learned that Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal are close to landing the roles of a couple of bumbling princes. But the one key ingredient that’s always been missing is who’s going to play the female lead, the Baker’s wife. Until »
