Firstly, ”That’s not real yet,”
He’s surely interested: ”Everyone knows we’re good friends. It’s something that if it happened I would be ecstatic…I’d love to be a part of it. Things change and time goes on, it’s 2013 right now…The characteristics of the Human Torch are his name is Johnny Storm, he’s charismatic, and he’s a playboy. That’s it. You know what I’m saying? That’s all there is.”
The other casting rumor involves Girls star Allison Williams as Sue Storm. I hope both happen, particularly Jordan as Storm. He’d be perfect. Seth Grahame-Smith, Michael Green and Jeremy Slater are working on the script. »

This weekend, moviegoers of all ages and levels of geekdom will be Trek-king to theaters for the further space adventures of Kirk and Spock. But for those of you craving a more humorous, earthbound tale, we recommend you check out this week’s “Sleeper to See.” The Movie: Frances Ha The Director: Indie stalwart Noah Baumbach (Greenberg, The Squid and the Whale) The Cast: Rising starlet Greta Gerwig (To Rome with Love, No Strings Attached), who co-wrote the script; Adam Driver, best known for playing Lena Dunham’s quirky boyfriend Adam on HBO’s Girls; Mickey Sumner (Girl Most Likely, Cbgb), daughter of rocker Sting; and Grace Gummer (Larry Crowne, Margin Call), daughter of actress Meryl. (Streep, that is.) The Story: In this bittersweet...

I haven't seen enough of Noah Baumbach's films to weigh in on the entirety of his filmography, but Frances Ha is something any fan of cinema is sure to enjoy as it harkens back to the films of the French New Wave with its music and editing choices and its lovely black-and-white imagery. Beyond that, it excels largely due to what would seem, on the surface, a simple story, elevated by the realization life is never simple. Serving as co-writer and title star, Greta Gerwig steps into the shoes of Frances, a dance company apprentice with aspirations to, one day, join the company as a full-time dancer. She's a little scattered and aloof, but nevertheless charming and someone you'd enjoy having as a friend. She's a dreamer with high aspirations and, even when things look their bleakest, maintains, somewhat irresponsibly, a certain level of confidence... or does she? Determining »

It's a battle of two smokin' starlets in the same sexy red dress -- so who wore it better?On Tuesday, "90210" star Jessica Lowndes hit the red carpet in London for the Aston Martin Tailoring collection wearing one super-tight Stop Staring! red dress. The actress looked amazing in the curve-hugging ensemble, and finished her look with a silver clutch and black pumps. She wore her hair in loose curls, and matched her fiery look with a bold red lip!Lowndes isn't the only actress who has rocked this dress -- last September "Girls" star Allison Williams wore the same sexy outfit to "The Master" premiere in New York. While the HBO star didn't put her girls on display like the "90210" actress -- she did look super chic in the knee-length ensemble. Williams finished her look with a blush peep-toe pump, and likewise wore her hair in soft curls. She kept »

HBO, the same network that recently gave us Lena Dunham’s hit series Girls, has ordered a new series revolving around the lives of several gay men in San Francisco. Glee actor Jonathan Groff--who will also star in HBO’s 2014 TV adaptation of the Harry Kramer play The Normal Heart--is set to play the lead in the eight-episode series. »
Since jumpsuits are such a hot trend we weren’t surprised to see not one, but two stars opt for the exact Valentino get-up — but who do You think wore it better? Vote!
Miley Cyrus stole the spotlight when she stepped out at the Maxim Hot 100 Party in La on May 15 at Create nightclub, where the star celebrated her spot on the top of the list in a gorgeous Valentino jumpsuit. From the bow detailing on the back to the star’s sexy Saint Laurent sandals, there’s no denying the fact that the 20-year-old singer really owned the look — but that wasn’t the first time the jumpsuit walked the red carpet!

Good morning, Brewbies! With the season four premiere of Pretty Little Liars just three weeks away, ABC Family has started raining down promo clips. Yesterday, they dropped three new teases, including an amazing one in which Hanna and Emily get into a squabble about Hanna and Mona. Poor ol' Hanna had no idea what kind of drama she was in for when she started accepting PinkDrinks.
Also, guess who's back this year?
I'm never not going to think of Maya when I see that porch.
Gallup just finished analyzing their annual Values and Beliefs poll, and it turns out more people than ever before are pretty sure you were born this way. In fact, the gap between people who think being gay is more nature than nurture is wider than it ever has been on the pro-gay side of things.

When you hear the plot for "Frances Ha" -- about an awkward 27-year-old aspiring dancer in Brooklyn who's trying to get her life together -- your first inclination might be to compare it to another Brooklyn-based project with a twentysomething female protagonist. However, "Frances Ha" is not HBO's "Girls, and its co-writer and star, Greta Gerwig, is not Lena Dunham (nor is she playing Hannah, Dunham's character on the show). That's nothing against "Girls," it's just that "Frances Ha," and its terrific performance from Gerwig, deserves to stand on its own. Most mainstream audiences are likely unfamiliar with Gerwig. Other than supporting roles in "No Strings Attached" and "Arthur," as well as Woody Allen's "To Rome With Love," she hasn't had much exposure outside of the indie film world. Whether that changes with "Frances Ha" remains to be seen. Either way, the 29-year-old actress is someone to keep an eye on. »

Fans of cable television shows like "Boardwalk Empire" should have no trouble recognizing actor Michael Zegen. Part of the next generation of "that guys" -- those character actors who show up in what seems like everything -- Zegen has appeared on "The Sopranos," "How To Make It In America," "Rescue Me," "The Walking Dead," and, most recently, the aforementioned "Boardwalk Empire," where he plays mobster Bugsy Siegel. This week, Zegen co-stars in Noah Baumbach's new film "Frances Ha" as Benji, a nice guy who becomes friend and roommate to the title character (Greta Gerwig), a 27-year-old modern dancer struggling with life in New York.
"When we would do the scenes, I would watch playback and I knew it was something special," Zegen told HuffPost Entertainment about the film, which premiered last year on the festival circuit to rave reviews and hits theaters in limited release on May 17. The black »

HBO’s critically acclaimed comedy Girls won two Golden Globe awards in 2012, for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.
The latter was for actress and show creator Lena Dunham (This Is 40), who plays Hannah Horvath, one of a group of twentysomethings living in New York. In this second season, Hannah is seeing a new guy but feels responsible for her ex, who’s recovering from the accident that ended season 1.
Meanwhile, recently single Marnie (Allison Williams, TV’s The Mindy Project) needs the support of her best friend and former roommate, but their distance seems bigger than ever.

Having starred in films by Whit Stillman, Woody Allen and Noah Baumbach, Greta Gerwig has officially become something of indie film's collective muse. After first turning heads with her raw, naturalistic performances in the "mumblecore" movement that she had a hand in spawning, she made a seamless transition to larger budget films with Noah Baumbach's 2009 film "Greenberg," with an exceptional performance that catapulted her to something like fame. While she still might not be a household name, critics and film fans have been eagerly awaiting her newest, "Frances Ha," which she co-wrote with director Baumbach, since it was announced as premiering at Telluride last fall. Her personal relationship with Baumbach has gotten a significant amount of coverage as well. Meanwhile, the two continue their prosperous working relationship with another film, also co-written and starring Gerwig alongside relative newcomer Lola Kirke (sister of "Girls" star Jemima Kirke), which they recently. »

Did I say this time of the year is my Christmas? Scratch that, it’s Thanksgiving before I learned to take tiny portions the first time around and wait twenty minutes before getting more. I am in whatever you’d call the TV industry junkie version of a tryptophan coma. There’s a whole lof of news and hopefully I’ve managed to take Instagram pictures of all all the interesting dishes.
NBC announced its fall schedule with Parenthood moving to Thursday, James Spader procedural The Blacklist getting the post-Voice slot and a pair of thrillers (Dracula and the pirate drama Crossbones) set to follow Grimm on Friday nights.

Andrew here, shining a final light on Katharine Hepburn, a postscript to Tfe's generous Katharine Hepburn week despite our host never having been a huge fan. Nathaniel’s write-up on Katharine’s twelve Oscar nominations nailed one of the key oddities of the icon's Oscary career. Her win in 1967 for Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner was only the second Oscar she picked up, a full 35 years after her screen debut. For perspective, by that time her biggest peers of the day - Bette Davis, Olivia De Havilland and Ingrid Bergman had already picked up dual statues.
It must have seemed unlikely by then that Katharine was ever going to get a statue to keep her Morning Glory trophy company, especially since with Spencer Tracy’s declining health she was working less and less. Consider: she'd made 15 films in the thirties, 11 in the forties, 7 in the fifties but Guess Who »
