"Gossip Girl" fan favorite Ed Westwick has booked his first major post-Chuck Bass role. He'll be starring in the film adaptation of "Bone In The Throat," a noir novel written by celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.
Westwick will play the lead role, described as "a sous-chef at the hottest restaurant in London's East End who becomes embroiled in his uncle's underground mob activity when he witnesses him commit a murder."
The casting was first reported by Deadline. »
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!

Bless you, direct-to-dvd industry, for churning out endlessly amusing extensions of movies that never should have been franchises in the first place. An EW staffer casually mentioned the third Ace Ventura movie earlier today, inspiring a group of us to reminisce about the most random sequels we could think of — sequels many of us were hearing about for the first time.
And so, in honor of both these little-discussed gems and the gift that is Friday afternoon, here’s a list of the genre’s most unassuming entries. Caution: It’s about to get all nostalgic up in here. (Like that’s a surprise. »

Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick shared a sweet moment at Lax yesterday as she dropped him off to catch his flight. The former Gossip Girl stars and real-life couple stopped at a nearby gas station before heading to the terminal, where they embraced as they parted ways. According to sources on the scene, the two reportedly were also spotted kissing. Jessica and Ed previously dated for four years before splitting in early 2012. While it hasn't been confirmed whether the two are rekindling their romance, they were recently spotted together at an event in Indian Wells, CA, during the first weekend of Coachella and also attended a City Year charity event in La together last weekend. Ed and Jessica have both been staying busy since their hit CW show aired its final episode late last year. Jessica recently made a cameo in her friend Taylor Swift's music video for the »

Chris, Liam, and Luke Hemsworth joined several celebrities in La on Saturday for City Year's third annual Spring Break: Destination Education party, a fundraiser to keep at-risk students on the path to graduation. The Hemsworth brothers posed on the red carpet with AmeriCorps members - who serve as tutors, mentors, and role models to students - while television heartthrobs Ed Westwick and Max Greenfield followed suit. The nonprofit cause also brought out Julianne Hough, Rashida Jones, Hailee Steinfeld in a striped Dolce & Gabbana dress, Octavia Spencer, and others. Inside the event, stars snacked on food, checked out interactive booths, and caught performances from DJ Sky Blu of Lmfao and Skylar Grey. Octavia was on hand to pass out City Year jackets as one of the organization's host committee members, which included Channing Tatum, Anne Hathaway, Vince Vaughn, and others who were unable to attend.

Yes, Carlo Carlei‘s take on Romeo and Juliet does have a few things going for it – most notably, a stellar cast that includes Hailee Steinfeld as Juliet and Douglas Booth as Romeo, along with Paul Giamatti, Damian Lewis, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Stellan Skarsgard, and apparently Ed Westwick just for scenery-chewing funsies – but even the best cast in the world can’t avoid one major, glaring problem with this new version of Shakespeare’s classic. Namely, that this one just seems utterly pointless. Carlei’s vision is a classic one – it doesn’t have the flash of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, or the revisionist fun of something like West Side Story - but it also doesn’t even attempt to improve upon the gold standard traditionalist take of Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 version. Why, exactly, is this being made now? Are kids today really in need of a just-barely-updated version of the film to watch during English class »

Two film adaptations, both alike in writer in the world of cinema where we lay our scene, from silent movies to colourful modernised versions, where poor performances make Shakespeare’s words unclean. From forth the respected pen of Julian Fellowes and Joss Whedon, a pair of Shakespeare adaptations hit the screen.
It’s often cited as the greatest love story ever told; a statement that completely ignores the chemistry between Heather Graham and Matt Le Blanc in Lost I Space. But we have a new version of Romeo And Juliet on its way, from the writer of Downton Abbey. This film takes the story back to its roots and probably won’t involve guns or a bombastic soundtrack. The trailer’s a bit spoiler filled, so I don’t see why anyone would want to watch this in the cinema. They die…apparently. It also looks a bit dreary and nothing new. »

Carlei’s Romeo and Juliet was originally to be released on our shores this Valentine’s Day, but we’ve not heard much from the project in recent months. With its release date now set for the end of the year, however, the first trailer has debuted, giving us our first good look at the upcoming adaptation.
In the fair city of Verona. Romeo and Juliet, the children of the feuding Montague and Capulet families, meet at a feast and fall deeply in love. Despite the sworn disdain their families hold for one another, they steal away and are secretly wed by Friar Laurence.
It is not long, however, before trouble ensues…

Here’s the first trailer for the writer Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) adaptation of the Shakespeare tragedy of star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet, starring Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Douglas Booth (The Pillars of the Earth). Everyone knows lovers whose love is denied due to the feud between their two families, the Montagues and Capulets, so it’s tough to be excited by a new adaptation unless its told in an original or interesting fashion. Directed by Italian filmmaker Carlo Carlei, the film’s supporting cast includes Paul Giamatti, Stellan Skarsgard, and Homeland’s Damian Lewis along with Ed Westwick, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In) and Natascha McElhone. Romeo...

Last night's Neon Carnival at Coachella brought the stars out for a night out in the desert. The carnival-themed event, held at an airport hangar, lasted early into the morning. During the festivities, Julianne Hough, Alex Pettyfer, and Ed Westwick took turns throwing darts, while Emma Roberts hopped on the giant slide. Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend Austin Butler also took advantage the rides and took a spin on the bumper cars, while Alexander Skarsgard was spotted making the rounds solo. One unexpected guest at the bash was Clint Eastwood, who played carnival games, sipped beer, and stopped to take some photos with fans. Check out our roundup of all the celebrities at Coachella so far and follow PopSugar on Twitter and Instagram for the latest news from the festival!

A trailer is out for the new Romeo and Juliet movie. This adaptation is directed by Carlo Carlei (Flight of the Innocent) and stars Douglas Booth (The Pillars of the Earth) as Romeo and Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) as Juliet.
My initial reaction while watching the trailer for this honest adaptation of Romeo and Juliet was why bother?

Sneak Peek the first trailer from director Carlo Carlei’s new adaptation of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet", written by Julian Fellowes starring Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Paul Giamatti, Stellan Skarsgard, Emmy award winner Damian Lewis, Ed Westwick, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Natascha McElhone:
"...'Romeo and Juliet' portrays the long-standing quarrel between the two established families in Verona, the 'Capulets' and the 'Montagues', that prevent Romeo and Juliet from being able to profess their love openly.
"The climax occurs when Romeo kills himself by drinking poison, believing Juliet is dead. When Juliet discovers the death of her husband, she kills herself, wanting to be with her lover through eternity. Their deaths, however, bring to a final close the age-old quarrel between the Capulets and Montagues..."

Here we have yet another adaptation of the classic Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet. Directed by Italy’s Carlo Carlei, this new take on the classic story has quite the pedigree in terms of cast and script, coming from Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes. With an ensemble including Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth, as well as Damian Lewis, Ed Westwick, Paul Giamatti and Stellan Skarsgård.
I think the film looks soulless, offering nothing different than previous tellings. Here's the trailer in all its "glory". Are you excited for yet another Romeo and Juliet?

The first trailer for the newest adaptation of Romeo and Juliet is now online, and there’s plenty of ancient grudges, unclean civil hands, and death-marked love on display in this peek at the film.
While the other buzzy Shakespeare adaptation of 2013 — Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing — went the route of a fresh, modern interpretation, this Romeo and Juliet is going back to the play’s Elizabethan roots, with period costumes, a shoot in Verona and other Italy locations, and a young pair of actors playing the leads. The film’s Juliet, Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), who shot »

Is the world ready for yet another take on the classic William Shakespeare work "Romeo and Juliet?" Pretty soon, it won't matter. Julian Fellowes, creator of PBS hit "Downton Abbey," has penned an adaptation of the play about two star-crossed lovers.
This incarnation stars Hailee Steinfeld ("True Grit") as Juliet Capulet and Douglas Booth ("Lol") as Romeo Montague. Elsewhere in the cast, Paul Giamatti plays Friar Lawrence, Stellan Skarsgard is Prince Escalus of Verona, Natascha McElhone takes on the role of Lady Capulet and "Gossip Girl" star Ed Westwick dons long hair to become Tybalt.
Unlike the last big screen adaptation of the story, 1996's "Romeo + Juliet" by Baz Lurhman, this version is takes place in a traditional setting, sticking closely to the original work. While "Romeo and Juliet" is set for an October 25 release in the U.K., a date hasn't been announced for the United States. »
Remember that new movie version of "Romeo and Juliet" that "True Grit" star Hailee Steinfeld was attached to? Yeah, we had completely forgotten about it, too, but now there's a trailer to jog our memories.
Directed by Carlo Carlei and starring Douglas Booth as Romeo, this newfangled "R&J" looks decidedly ... calmer than Baz Luhrmann's game-changing 1996 version starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. But hey, it's, you know, a pretty good script by a fella named Bill Shakespeare, if we remember correctly, and it's nice to see Steinfeld in a more girly-girl role as compared to her terrific tomboyish turn in "True Grit."
The supporting cast is pretty great, too, with Kodi Smit-McPhee as Benvolio, Damian Lewis as Lord Capulet, Natascha McElhone as Lady Capulet, Lesley Manville as the Nurse, Ed Westwick as Tybalt, Paul Giamatti as Friar Laurence, Christian Cooke as Mercutio, Tomas Arana as Lord Montague, Laura Morante as Lady Montague, »

"Romeo + Juliet" made Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio into superstars.Will the latest adaptation of William Shakespeare's tale make its young stars household names?One is already an Oscar nominee: 16-year-old Hailee Steinfeld, who plays Juliet. Her Romeo? 20-year-old British actor/model Douglas Booth, who looks like a cross between Johnny Depp and Robert Pattinson."Romeo and Juliet" also stars "Gossip Girl's" Ed Westwick as Tybalt (trading his signature slick hair for a bad 'do), while "Homeland" star Damien Lewis plays Juliet's father, Lord Capulet. "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes wrote and produced the script.Given Steinfeld's age, director Carlo Carlei had to make changes. "As soon as Hailee Steinfeld was cast, all nudity and lovemaking have been excised from the script," he told Entertainment Weekly. "It will be romantic and age-appropriate for a 14-year-old."Judging by the trailer, there will still be some eyebrow-raising love scenes. Check it out below. »

Brush up your Shakespeare! The newest star-encrusted 'Romeo and Juliet' screen version of the Bard's tragic romance finally has a trailer.

Steinfeld has been carefully selecting the right big-screen follow-up to her Oscar-nominated performance in the Coen Brothers' 2010 take on "True Grit." Her Juliet will be lorded over by "Homeland"'s Damian Lewis as the patriarch of the Capulets, and Paul Giamatti, Stellan Skarsgard and Ed Westwick will also star. A UK release is slated for July 26, but no word yet on Us distribution. Watch the trailer below. »
