Ryan Guzman on The Boy Next Door and Why There Is So Much Talk of Cookies

23 January 2015 3:19 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There’s a chance you’re already familiar with Ryan Guzman. He played the one man who came close to breaking up Ezra and Aria on Pretty Little Liars and the only guy to lead more than one Step Up movie, but this weekend he’s introducing himself to the world in a whole new light. As the titular Boy in The Boy Next Door, Guzman answers whether looks can kill, terrorizing Jennifer Lopez after she regrets their romantic evening together. With the film coming out today, Vulture spoke with Guzman about his special skills, hurting Kristin Chenoweth, and Jennifer Lopez’s cookies. Starting with Pretty Little Liars, when you were on the show, were Ezria fans supportive of you or did they come after you for playing Aria’s new love interest? Oh no, the Ezria fans hated me. I think they still hate me. I think they hate »

Jason Blum Bets on Latino Auds With ‘Boy Next Door’

22 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

These are tricky times for the box office, which fell by 5.2% in 2014 (its lowest attendance level in two decades), but Hispanic ticketbuyers represent a silver lining. Last year, for instance, the demo constituted approximately 22% of the opening-week audience for the summer’s biggest blockbusters. And although Hispanics embrace movies of all genres, they consistently have made microbudget thrillers a safe bet for studios.

No one is more aware of this than Jason Blum, whose franchise films continue to over-index among the demographic. Hispanics turned out in droves to see Blum’s “The Purge: Anarchy,” contributing 36% of the movie’s impressive $30 million opening (not bad for a movie budgeted at $9 million). Following the success of the sequel, NBCUniversal signed Blumhouse Prods. to an unusually broad 10-year deal encompassing film, TV and digital.

Blum made his biggest bet on the demographic with “The Marked Ones,” a Latino spinoff of “Paranormal Activity” that »

Jennifer Lopez's Whirlwind 'Boy Next Door' Press Tour Reveals a Side Often Unseen

21 January 2015 5:15 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jennifer Lopez is everywhere this week promoting her new movie The Boy Next Door, and the interviews she's been giving reveal a different J.Lo.

News: Jennifer Lopez on Racy Boy Next Door Sex Scene

"I refuse to be put in a box," J. Lo, 45, told Et's Kevin Frazier about doing sex scenes after 40. "Because I'm over 40 I can't be sexy? Or is it because I'm a mom? Moms aren't allowed to be sexy?"

She's fearlessly silencing critics in her upcoming thriller in which she plays Clair Peterson, a bored, divorced housewife that gets into a sexual tryst with her teenage neighbor Noah, played by Step Up star Ryan Guzman, 27.

Like her character in the film, J. Lo has the ability to switch between wholesome "mom next door" (as she did while opening up her home and posing with her twins Max and Emme for People) and sex symbol (as seen in the new cover of Complex »

“It wasn’t actually so clear in the original script. It was just like one line that said ‘intimate scene,’ or ‘sex scene,'” Guzman says during...

Ryan Guzman revealed how he landed the steamy role opposite Jennifer Lopez in thriller “The Boy Next Door,” and at first he actually thought it was a joke.

“One of my commercial agents actually reached out to my manager saying that Jennifer Lopez wants me to do a table read,” Guzman said. “I, of course, thought it was a prank so I hung up … quite a few times.”

Film Review: ‘The Boy Next Door’

21 January 2015 9:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director Rob Cohen is an old hand at straightforward genre product, with a career that stretches from “Miami Vice” to “The Fast and the Furious,” and he helms the Jennifer Lopez starrer “The Boy Next Door” with the passionless precision of a filmmaker who knows the territory. That might not sound like a fatal flaw, but frankly, a hack might almost have been preferable here, injecting this silly, somnambulant thriller script about a schoolteacher who falls for a psychotic teenager with some sort of panache, distinction or perversion, or even some kind of memorable incompetence to liven up its assembly-line paces. January releases don’t get much more January than this, but given its reported $4 million budget, “The Boy Next Door” shouldn’t have too much trouble finding its way into the black.

The Price of Crazy: What Hollywood's 'stalker' genre says about mental health stigma

20 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Is Hollywood progressive? There seems to be a pervasive gap between what is preached and what is portrayed, and that's perhaps no more true than in the industry's historically shoddy treatment of mental illness on the silver screen. When it comes to humanizing sufferers of mental illness in films and on television, Tinseltown has for the most part come up woefully short; indeed, for every "Silver Linings Playbook" there are 10 "Single White Females." One of the most persistent offending traditions is the "stalker" film, a sub-genre jumpstarted by Clint Eastwood's hit 1971 thriller "Play Misty for Me" that continues to go strong more than 40 years later. The most recent example of this ongoing trend is Universal's "The Boy Next Door," an upcoming thriller that stars Jennifer Lopez as a high school teacher targeted by a dangerously obsessive student (Ryan Guzman). Important note: I haven't seen "The Boy Next Door" and »
