15 years old. Yorkshire accent. Indian or Pakistani. Zamir fancies himself a bit and is a pretty mischievous teenager; he's nosey and wants to be involved in any neighbourhood drama. This is an adult drama so there will be some minor swearing for Zamir.
Yorkshire accents are a must for this - Indian »

Rob and Kristen, the thing that you’ve both missed most about each other since your breakup last May is the close friendship that you shared. So it’s fantastic that even if you’re not ready to brave a new romance together, at least you are becoming best friends again.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, neither of you has really mended your broken heart since your painful split. And even though you, Rob, have been doing a good job of going out and partying at places like the Viper Room, Chateau Marmont and the Wiltern, no woman has been able to replace Kristen in your life — not Dylan Penn, not Riley Keough, not anyone else. And Kristen, certainly no man has replaced Rob. But both of you have been missing each other like crazy.
Kristen, you »

Charlie Hunnam officially resigned from the highly sought-after role of Christian Grey on Oct. 12, supposedly due to his hectic TV schedule. Though the Sons of Anarchy actor claimed he was too busy to study for the lead role in Fifty Shades of Grey, the real reason he abandoned the project is because he is worried about his future as a serious actor. Read on for all the details.
Charlie doesn’t want to go down the same career path as Robert Pattinson, who famously hates all the media attention he’s received for his role in the Twilight franchise.

I’ve returned from Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, but the festival keeps on running until the end of the day tomorrow, September 26. And, like any self-respecting festival, there have been awards announced for various films and the people involved in their creation. The only award I can say I had even a slight hand in was the Audience Award–ballots were handed out after each public screening over the first four days of the festival. Sadly, though, I can’t even say that my votes mattered, as the Audience Award winner was a film I sadly didn’t get a chance to see. It’s Jodorowsky’s Dune, a documentary about a film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s iconic sci-fi novel directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky. Of course, as we all know, that version never came to fruition, as the actual film was directed by David Lynch. But the story »

After Sydney caused a scene at Anthony’s concession party on Sept. 10, she is coming forward with the real reason she crashed the event.
Sydney Leathers, 23, the now infamous sexting partner of embattled New York City mayor hopeful Anthony Weiner, 49, made a very unwelcome appearance at his concession party at Connolly’s Pub and Restaurant in midtown Manhattan. Was she just trying to extend her 15 minutes of fame, or did she have ulterior motive? Read on for all the Exclusive details.
Sydney Leathers At Anthony Weiner Party — Why Did She Crash The Bash?
Sydney knows she isn’t going to “change the world or anything” but she felt it was her “obligation” to the public to see that Anthony didn’t get elected to office.
She says she didn’t show up to his election night party seeking fame, but rather to serve as a “human protest sign.”

However lukewarm the reception was for Capcom's 'Remember Me', the majority of the reviewers agreed on one positive point about the game: its soundtrack was remarkable. Its composer, Olivier Deriviere adeptly uses various musical styles and consciously toys with familiar orchestral textures with positive results. As a cohesive soundtrack release, 'Remember Me's' compiled music conjures images of an unmade Philip K. Dick film.
If you've ever listened to a soundtrack before watching a film or playing a game, you often run the risk of spoiling yourself on the pacing and the ebb and flow of the narrative. You can certainly imagine a story play out in your head as you listen to 'Remember Me's' soundtrack, but at the same time, each track can stand on its own. The one exception is the track titled 'Fragments', a repetitive piece that fits well in the context of the game, »

According to IMDb, close to 40 films and TV shows have Elmore Leonard’s name attached, some as creator, some as screenwriter, but about three-quarters because they’re based on one of his novels or short stories. Leonard, who died August 20 of complications following a stroke, didn’t like most of them. Actually, that’s something of an understatement. He hated most of them, the distinction being he hated some more than others.
Leonard had a love/hate thing going with Hollywood. He loved taking movie money, but usually hated what Hollywood did with his material. He went public with his revulsion over Burt Reynold’s thoroughly lousy 1985 adaptation of his novel Stick, and while I don’t know this for a fact, I’m sure he was shaking his head – at least at first — when Quentin Tarantino cast Pam Grier in Jackie Brown (1997) to play what had been a white character in his source novel, »

Here at PopWatch, we’re reminiscing about the pop culture moments that we still can’t get over — no matter how much time has passed.
It’s been three years since the release of 2010′s Remember Me, starring Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin as two Nyu students from different social classes, and similarly discordant family relationships, who end up falling in love. Sounds harmless, albeit even a little boring, right? Well, while I was sunk into my movie chair, going through the motions of this one-note film, soaring on a neutral emotional plane, thinking this run-of-the-mill romance-drama can’t get any better or worse, »
