Looking at Seann William Scott's American Pie character Steve Stifler, it's not exactly easy to picture him playing a guidance counsellor at a high school, but on the other hand, maybe that makes him a perfect pick for such a role in a comedy. Scott will star in Myriad Pictures' high school comedy Guidance. He joins Leslie Bibb in the film. Per Variety, Guidance is being directed by Ira Rosensweig from a script penned by Matteson Perry. The writer/director team have worked together on a couple of shorts (Running Buddies and Graveyard Shift). Scott has been cast to play a down-on-his-luck guidance counselor who takes a liking to a student that reminds him of himself and makes the choice to alter transcripts in order to help him. Leslie Bibb is on board to play a new teacher who has caught Scott's eye. Bibb and Scott share a recent credit, »

Casting Couch is a low-budget indie comedy but with impressive production value alongside echoes of American Pie, Dazed & Confused and those teen sex-comedies that have found cult status over the years.
This takes the form of a mockumentary that focuses initially on lead character Justin (Justin Smith), who’s hung-over and not having much luck with the ladies. Justin and his mates are all desperate to act but also they’re trying to meet girls and get laid. To solve the problem, they come up with the idea to cast and write their own movie but here’s the twist: It’s a fake horror film called The Bloody Slumber Party that will never be made.
Let me make one thing clear, I’m »

Multi-talented director Eli Roth is showing off his acting skills once again in the thriller Aftershock, which is in theaters this Friday. Playing a character lovingly referred to as Gringo, Roth co-wrote and produced this tale of an earthquake that hits Chile while he and his new found friends are partying at a club. They must survive the aftermath in what turns out to be quite a gruesome ride.
We recently caught up with Eli, who was participating in a junket for the film at Los Angeles' exclusive home to magicians ,The Magic Castle. From a room adorned with owls, the director of Hostel and Cabin Fever revealed that Aftershock is based on real events that happened to director Nicolás López. He also spoke a tiny bit about his own next directoriual effort The Green Inferno, »
What happens to a group of travelers who are in an underground nightclub in Chile when a massive earthquake hits? Hint: Nothing good!
Well, except that it gave me the opportunity to sit down with Eli Roth to talk about his new movie Aftershock, in which he stars, co-wrote, and produced. I would say that’s a pretty darn good outcome! Check it out below.
In the middle of a night of wild partying, a hapless American tourist (Roth) and his friends are suddenly plunged into a living hell when a powerful earthquake rips through the coastal town of Valparaíso, Chile.
What do you think it is about travel that sets a good tone for a film?
Eli Roth: Well, travel – Everyone has fantasies of traveling. We all want to escape our lives and go somewhere fun. A lot of times we want to go as far away from »

After an earth quake erupts off the coastal town of Valparaiso, Chile, a group of travelers in an underground night club must reach the surface and discover it’s just the beginning of their nightmare. Gringo (Eli Roth) and his Chilean buddies Ariel (Ariel Lev) and Pollo (Nicolas Martinez) must help Kylie (Lorenza Izzo) and Monica (Andrea Osvart) escape looters, convicts, and the aftershocks that followed. Directed by Nicolas Lopez, ‘Aftershock’ is inspired by true events and real life stories over the Chilean earthquake that hit the country in 2010.
How does it feel to be living your dream, from directing to writing to acting?
Eli Roth: I feel like I’m getting to live my dream and there’s really no better feeling in the world. I think one of the keys to that is that I’ve taken chances and I’ve never played it safe on anything that I’ve ever done. »

Among circumstances that are devastating for you and awesome for everyone else, having a hot mom ranks near the top.
If it's you with the hot mom, there's nothing positive about it. You are the kid with the hot mom. Your friends could be asexual boy scouts and they'll still talk about how hot your mom is with relative frequency.
If it's your friend with the hot mom? A+! Congratulations! What a life bonus!
The children of the following ten movie characters have had to deal with a lot. Their (fictional) moms are incredibly sexy. Let's discuss.
The thing that's unique about Coolidge and why she receives the honor of batting leadoff on this list is that she's not exactly "classically" Milf-hot in the sense of "Overall hot woman who also happens to have children" Milf-hot (yes, there are categories of Milf-hotness as of right now). Instead, »

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly inadvertently broadcast a curse word in the midst of performing an on-air Google Glass demonstration.
Kelly was trying to find out how to say "hot dog" in German -- maybe not the safest on-air search idea if we're all being honest -- and up popped a quote from the 1999 comedy "American Pie."
"You realize we're all going to go to college as virgins," the quote from Jason Biggs' character begins, before explaining about women: "You ask them questions and listen to what they have to say and s***."
Kelly came back at the end of the broadcast to apologize for the accidental obscenity. She also brought up a split-frame of herself in the Google Glasses with Sarah Palin in her regular old glasses, before tossing to "Studio B" host Shepard Smith.

Oscar winners Olivia de Havilland and Luise Rainer among movie stars of the 1930s still alive With the passing of Deanna Durbin this past April, only a handful of movie stars of the 1930s remain on Planet Earth. Below is a (I believe) full list of surviving Hollywood "movie stars of the 1930s," in addition to a handful of secondary players, chiefly those who achieved stardom in the ensuing decade. Note: There’s only one male performer on the list — and curiously, four of the five child actresses listed below were born in April. (Please scroll down to check out the list of Oscar winners at the 75th Academy Awards, held on March 23, 2003, as seen in the picture above. Click on the photo to enlarge it. © A.M.P.A.S.)

*Editor’s note: For a good ‘welcome to the team’ kind of trial by fire, I sent our newest contributor, Graham, to sit down and interview director/actor Eli Roth regarding his upcoming film Aftershock, which he stars in and co-wrote with the film’s director Nicolas Lopez. Roth was nice enough to talk about his experience on the film, along with Hostel, and his upcoming return to the director’s chair, The Green Inferno. Read on!
How does it feel for you to go from dreaming of wanting to be a filmmaker your whole life and then eventually growing up to not only be that and succeed at it, but to also now be known as an actor in the process?
Well, it’s great. I feel like I’m getting to live my dream and there’s really no better feeling in the world. I think one of »

Break out your mint juleps and fancy hats everybody — it’s race day! Tons of celebs donned their finest outfits for the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby. Click to see them all!
There’s only one day a year where you’re allowed to wear a hat that weighs more than your head — Derby Day. The 139th running of the Kentucky Derby fell on May 4, and like always, celebs came out to partake in the festivities. And their outfits did not disappoint.
2013 Kentucky Derby: Celebs Break Out The Hats
Lauren Conrad was a picture of Kentucky constraint, as she wore a beautiful tan dress and a surprisingly dainty matching hat.
The Medicine Woman, Jane Seymour, went for a louder look — she was stunning in a bright red dress and a truly gorgeous hat.
Singer Miranda Lambert brought country to Churchill Downs in her elegant — almost Victorian — dress. She topped »

Another day; another American Pie influenced teen comedy pillages its way into cinemas. 21 And Over tells the story of Jeff Chang, a student, who goes on the bender to end all benders. And of course the following day he has a huge interview for med school, meaning his bender wasn't the best idea. But thankfully his friends are on hand to drag him to through the experience. From the opening credits, 21 & Over starts to grate on your nerves. From the constant crane and dolly shots, to the soundtrack it gets irritating rather quickly. And the last thing anybody wants with a comedy is to get irritated. As our hapless / legless heroes go from bar to bar, Jeff Chang (who is constantly called Jeff Chang and never Jeff) gets more and more obliterated and ends up in a number of scenarios. None of which are particularly funny. All the time, his »

The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore don't stray too far out of their comfort zone for directorial debut 21 & Over, a fast-paced 'One Wild Night' comedy about college students celebrating a landmark birthday.
School friends Miller (Miles Teller) and Casey (Skylar Astin) take a road trip to visit pal Jeff Chang (Justin Chon) on campus for his 21st birthday. The catch? Jeff Chang (who is referred to by his full name throughout the film's entirety) has a Med School interview the next morning and his strict father wants him to follow in the family's proud medical tradition. Things quickly go awry, however, as Jeff Chang gets wasted, goes missing and sends his drunken pals into a panic about getting him home.

New York, May 3: Lingerie brand True and Co. has sparked criticism in their attempt to co-opt the acronym "Milf" for it's own promotional purposes.
"Are You a Milf?" - the latest slogan from the lingerie retailers, is now in hot water with angry women who say it's more crass than clever, the New York Daily News reported.
The underwear firm launched its controversial advertising campaign on Monday.
Bosses hoped substituting the "American Pie" acronym of "Mom I'd like to f-k" with "Mom I'd Like to Fit" would encourage women to get properly outfitted in time for Mother's Day.
People were encouraged to submit pictures of their moms for the Milf Gallery - and the winner would receive a 100-dollar gift card for. »

Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars
21 & Over might be the brainchild of writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore – who may as well change their names by deed poll to “the writers of The Hangover” – but the marketing conveniently forgets that they’re also writers of Four Christmases, Ghost of Girlfriends Past, The Hangover Part II and The Change-Up. Though its premise derives shamelessly from the former success, this stillborn 20-something comedy has more in common with the execrable majority of the team’s output.
Indeed, the premise to this film is virtually identical to The Hangover at a core level, but that’s really where the similarities begin and end. College student Jeff Chang (Justin Chon) has just turned 21 years old, and his two old high school buddies, the sensible, smart Casey (Skylar Astin) and the mental troublemaker Miller (Miles Teller), unexpectedly turn up on his doorstep for a night of heavy partying. »

The screenwriters of The Hangover have directed a tiresome, misjudged grossout comedy
Defiant grossout and uncompromising immaturity usually win very high marks from this reviewer, but not when they're allied to an eerie absence of funny lines and funny ideas. This post-teen comedy plays a little like Harold & Kumar, and a little like the depressing American Pie sequels, but with no gags. Miles Teller has the Seann William Scott role of the wisecracking party animal who dragoons his more straitlaced buddy Casey (Skylar Astin) and their mutual friend Jeff Chang (Justin Chon) for an ill-advised night on the town to celebrate Jeff's 21st birthday – and his official drinking age – heedless of the fact that Jeff's crucial med exam is totally the next morning. What could possibly go wrong? The racial stereotype gags about Asians being super-overachievers are frankly tiresome and misjudged, though probably no more tiresome and misjudged than anything else in the movie. »

Reflecting on the theme of struggling to fit in from his last feature film, the dark high school comedy Jawbreakers, director Darren Stein once again explored the heightened adolescent need to be accepted in his new movie, G.B.F. The contemporary teen comedy had its world premiere during the Tribeca Film Festival on April 19 at New York City’s Clearview Cinemas Chelsea. The filmmaker and several of G.B.F.‘s stars attended the red carpet before the screening to discuss the process of filming the comedy.
G.B.F. tells the story of two closeted best friends, Tanner (Michael J. Willett) and Brent (Paul Iacono), as they try to navigate high school. Brent longs to be the G.B.F, or gay best friend, of the popular girls in school, so that he can finally have the spotlight. Tanner, meanwhile, would rather make it to graduation without ever being noticed.
But the lead popular girls in school-the glamorous, »
