Entourage may just have been the perfect thirty-minute comedy/drama series of the last few decades. It even had one very famous fan – Barack Obama. Supposedly loosely based on show producer Mark Wahlberg‘s own journey to the top, the plot followed fictional actor Vincent Chase as he tried to negotiate the perils of the Hollywood Machine. The show gave us a fantastic insight into the inner workings of the film industry, highlighting negotiating pay and the behind-the-scenes intricacies that we forget exist.
Vince has a rather impressive film catalogue on his CV, and as the film is released in UK cinemas this week, we thought we’d compile a handy guide of his biggest hits (and flops »

Entourage finally takes it bow on this side of the pond this Friday (read our review here), delighting fans of the t.v. show no end. For those not familiar, Entourage pulls the curtain back and gives us an entertaining and as close to true life as it can get look at the ins and outs of Hollywood, with Adrian Grenier’s on the rise actor Vince Chase (said to based on a combination of the shows producer Mark Wahlberg, Leonardo Di Caprio, and Tobey Maguire) and named after the legendary Hollywood acting teacher of the same name) as our focus. Over the course of the series, Chase has had quite a few movies under his belt, so lets take a look through his fictional filmography. A Walk To Remember (2002) Let’s star a bit meta, with Chase having a small role in 2002’s A Walk to Remember. This would »

“Salem” star Shane West took a stroll down memory lane during a new episode of TheWrap’s “Drinking With the Stars,” revealing that he purchased the car his character drove in “A Walk to Remember.” “They started pulling out the cars one by one for each character and they pulled out that ’67 Camaro for me,” West said. “And I turned to the first A.D. and I was like ‘How much is it and I want it. Don’t let anyone else get it.’ And I used part of my paycheck to buy that car.” In light of all the reboots of TV. »

Along with her ever-changing career, the self-proclaimed cat lady has switched up her fashion sense (and hair color!) more times than we can count. Keep reading to see Mandy go from a teenage dream to a woman in charge, then check out her sweet friendship with Minka Kelly. »
From The Notebook to Dear John, and A Walk to Remember, nobody does romance quite like novelist Nicholas Sparks. Another one of his romances gets the page-to-screen treatment this week. The Longest Ride, which heads into theatres today, follows two couples separated by a generation and a war.
Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood play Sophia and Luke, respectively, a NYC-bound artist and a champion bull rider that may be pulled apart by their ambitions.

Nicholas Sparks is arguably one of the most successful crossover star in the film and publishing industries, prolific in churning out sweeping bodice rippers and offering them up for adaptation. But more than his ability to find the intersection of earnest romance and socially acceptable sappiness, Sparks films are major vehicles for male and female movie stars. Would Mandy Moore and Shane Wast be nostalgia bait for millennials without “A Walk to Remember?” Where else would Zac Efron try to cut his teeth as a romantic lead but “The Lucky One?” Matthew Barry, a casting director on the most iconic Sparks big screen. »

Nobody does romance like Nicholas Sparks! Now, the latest adaptation of Sparks’ work is getting the big screen treatment and heading into theatres this Friday.
The Longest Ride tells two parallel tales of love and loss that explore the nature of what it means to sacrifice it all for the one you love. Sophia (Tomorrowland’s Britt Robertson), and Luke (Scott Eastwood) are unlikely lovers whose lives become intertwined with a much older man, Ira (Alan Alda). As he reflects on his long lost love, we see his story of the past unfold through Jack Huston and Oona Chaplin whose romance offers wisdom and insight to the younger couple.
The Longest Ride marks the 10th film adaptation of a Sparks novel. While The Notebook might be the most popular of his page-to-screen adaptations, it was 1999’s Message in a Bottle with Kevin Costner and Robin Wright that began the wave »

Shane West had what it takes to be a leading man in a Nicholas Sparks‘ film. (But not just any Sparks film, probably the most devastating one of them all, A Walk to Remember.) And the actor knows exactly why Sparks’ work gets the best of every emotion you never knew you had.
“He’s kind of batting a thousand,” West told Nick Lachey on Big Morning Buzz Live Friday. “He’s just very real with his stories, he comes from a real place. I think fans appreciate that.” He also reminisced about working with Mandy Moore and being on his first major press tour, which hit up Trl, obviously. “My biggest memory is no memory. I was so scared and intimidated. There were so many people in your face, screaming, laughing, smiling. It was chaos.”
