Well, now, this is awkward. We're not sure if we're the right ones to say it, but, um, Finn Seyfried, it seems like you got a little something on your nose. Or perhaps the Australian shepherd, who calls Les Misérables star Amanda Seyfried Mom, likes it that way? "Omg," Tweeted the actress, 27, who also posted this goofy snapshot of a wide-eyed Finn refusing to break eye contact with the item. Maybe it's his attempt to go up against viral sensation Jack? The Australian cattle dog gained fame last month after photos of him balancing everything from an egg to a »
Into the Woods movie: Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal singing? (photo: Chris Pine Star Trek Into Darkness) Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain) — maybe, possibly, who knows — to be featured in a musical directed by Rob Marshall. Sounds weird? Well, why? If Russell Crowe can be cast as a mumbling — ahem, singing — Javert in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables, why can’t Captain Kirk and the Prince of Persia demonstrate their singing talents (or lack thereof) in Marshall’s movie adaptation of the 1987 Broadway hit Into the Woods? Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep have already been cast in Into the Woods, to be released by the Walt Disney Studios sometime this decade. And only yesterday it was announced that Tony winner James Corden (Two Guvnors) would join the Into the Woods ensemble as well. According to The Hollywood Reporter, no contract negotiations have taken place as yet, »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the first announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on NBC.
The Peacock did not have a good year. Only one of its new shows, "Revolution," was a true hit. Another, "Chicago Fire," got renewed by the skin of its teeth whilst the fate of a third, "Hannibal," remains uncertain.
None of last year's new comedies survived, neither did two mid-season dramas, which leaves the network with some big holes to fill. Three dramas and three comedies will debut in the Fall ahead of three more dramas and two comedies mid-season. Two further dramas and a comedy are presently unscheduled.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't become series including the high-profile Charlize Theron-produced drama about the Hatfields and McCoys, the Bruckheimer-produced »

Take a look at a complete preview of the shows coming your way, and mark your calendars. It looks good for NBC this year, and while I’m not sure all of these look like winners, I think you’ll find at least a couple that you’re really going to like.

Although it may not be the first screen musical to feature live-on-set singing, Les Misérables (2012, Universal, 12) is certainly the most ambitious, a huge, sweeping epic that produced a tidal wave of tears when it opened in UK cinemas. According to news reports, audiences of all ages – both male and female – were weeping openly during the multitudinous dramatic climaxes, a response attributed to the immediacy and intimacy that live voice recording conjured. Certainly, the technique pays dividends, most notably in Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway's breathtakingly fragile rendition of I Dreamed a Dream, delivered in one continuous take, pitched somewhere between a whisper and a scream, between speech and song, with eye-watering results.

Winner of three glittering Oscars, British director Tom Hooper's all-singing, all-dancing big screen adaptation of Victor Hugo's classic novel (as well as the subsequent stage musical) Les Misérables has certainly managed to capture the imagination of many. After conquering all and sundry at with breakthrough hit The King's Speech (2010), Hooper had set the bar intimidatingly high for his eagerly awaited follow-up. It was almost excruciatingly disappointing then, to see such a competent filmmaker undone more by his own bemusing misdirection and false steps, than by any preconceived, lofty ambition.
Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, Hooper's Les Misérables tells an interconnected, sprawling tale of imprisoned souls, demonised poor and kindred spirits, all fighting for survival amidst a country on the verge of civil unrest. Australian man mountain Hugh Jackman plays ex-convict Jean Valjean (aka prisoner 24601), hunted across the land by lawman Javert (Russell Crowe) after he breaks free of his bonds. »

Is Anne a blonde bombshell, or is her ‘do a total dud? Vote now!
Anne Hathaway, 30, gave everyone in the style world something to squawk about May 6 when she debuted lighter locks on the red carpet of the 2013 Met Ball — and now, she’s taken her dramatic new look one step further. The Oscar winner stepped out May 8 in NYC for the Tate Americas Foundation Artists Dinner at Skylight Studios, and she was rocking a fresh pixie cut!
Anne’s hair was certainly more tame on this carpet than it was at the Met Ball, where she wore it rock-and-roll style — to be fair, the theme of the night was “punk” — and we actually think she looks super pretty. Throughout her career, Anne has always remained classy and sensible, which is exactly how we’d describe this new cut!

The film was set to star Anne Hathaway in the lead, who is coming off the back of her Oscar-winning performance in Les Misérables. We recently heard that Hathaway had signed on to reunite with Christopher Nolan for the director’s next film, Interstellar. And it turns out that the role has forced her to exit Shelton’s Laggies, which is a real shame.
Fortunately, all is still well for the film, with EW reporting that Keira Knightley is in talks to take the lead in Hathaway’s place.
Laggies tells the story of a young woman who reacts to her boyfriend’s marriage proposal by pretending to go on a business retreat while she actually hunkers down with a new 16-year old friend »

Keirl also talked to Digital Spy about following in the footsteps of "phenomenal" Britain's Got Talent singer Susan Boyle, whose audition of 'I Dreamed a Dream' went viral in 2009, and hinted that he would perform a "power ballad" should he make it to the semi-final.
Speaking about his musical icons Bruno Mars, Adam Lambert, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, Keirl added: "I want my music to be heard worldwide. I want to be respected as an artist and respected as me."

‘The Big Wedding’ box office: All-star ‘family comedy’ bombs (photo: Susan Sarandon, Robert De Niro, Robin Williams in ‘The Big Wedding’) Despite an all-star cast that includes Oscar winner Diane Keaton (Annie Hall), Les Misérables‘ Amanda Seyfried, this year’s Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominee Robert De Niro (Silver Linings Playbook), Oscar winner Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking), Oscar winner Robin Williams (Good Will Hunting), Topher Grace, Ben Barnes, and Katherine Heigl, the R-rated, Justin Zackham-directed family comedy The Big Wedding opened with a disastrous $7.5m at 2,633 North American locations according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo.

For those of you who've had the pleasure of seeing Stephen Sondheim's classic Into the Woods (1986) on stage, you know that, like most of the great composer's once-prolific oeuvre, it is very particularly a Work of Theater. Some artists' skill sets transfer easily between stage, screen, television and literature and so on but others do not. Certain geniuses are so tied to a particular medium they become it; Stephen Sondheim Is Musical Theater.
But musical theater is different from musical cinema. Naturally compromises will have to be made. The person doing the new compromising is Rob Marshall who Hollywood is still giving the musicals to, presumably because of the huge success of Chicago (2002) and not the floppery of Nine (2009). So yes, compromises must be made... but they do not have to be made in casting. Many star actors -- if you're forced to cast that way -- have great singing voices. »

After Anne Hathaway won an Oscar for her role in "Les Misérables," it's not surprising that people would want to see her on Broadway. A rumor circulating online says the actress is set to make her Broadway debut in a production of "Cabaret" as the character Sally Bowles.
However, her rep tells E! News it's just not true. Anne's pretty busy since her Oscar win anyway, and seems to already have her next project lined up. It has been reported that she is set to join Matthew McConaughey in Christopher Nolan's next movie, the sci-fi epic "Interstellar."
It will be the second time Nolan and Hathaway have worked together, after she played the role of Selena Kyle in "The Dark Knight Rises," the final entry in the "Dark Knight" trilogy. "Interstellar" already has a release date of November 7, 2014, and will debut in traditional and IMAX theaters. »
Is Anne Hathaway Broadway bound?! That's the latest rumor circulating in the tabloids, as reports claim the Oscar-winning actress will make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles in Cabaret.

Hugh Jackman proves once again he's a totally hot dad. The Wolverine star was spotted in New York City picking up his daughter, Ava, from school. No fancy clothes for Mr. Jackman when he's not working: He dressed super casually in jeans, a zipped-up hoodie, ski cap and sunglasses. He also held onto his daughter with one hand while carrying a scooter in the other. You'd think a man this hot wouldn't mind filming close-up shots for his movies, but nope: Jackman apparently was terrified when he learned Les Misérables director Tom Hooper planned to include several close-ups in the big-screen adaptation of the hit stage musical. So Jackman sought help from Tony »
