Chris Wood joins The Vampire Diaries

6 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Actor Chris Wood jumps diary-based ships from The Carrie Diaries to The Vampire Diaries

News

In a curious move, title-wise at least, Chris Wood (who you may or may not recognise as The Carrie Diaries’ heartthrob playwright Adam Weaver), has now landed a role in The Vampire Diaries.

Wood, who’s also had one-off parts in Girls and Major Crimes, will play the recurring role of deceptively normal-seeming Kai, who is purported to have a blend of instability and angst under his cool exterior.

It seems like a decent fit for Wood’s skill-set, especially seeing as his Carrie Diaries role saw him play a loveable sensitive dude with some personal losses and emotional trauma lurking under the surface.

The Vampire Diaries returns stateside in early October this year, with Wood’s Kai first set to appear in episode three.

It’s unclear whether Wood’s love for diaries could »

Watch Kim Kardashian Freak Out and Cry in Thailand Over a Zip Line

22 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kim Kardashian shows us her best ugly cry.

It's safe to say that Kim Kardashian is not a fan of heights.

On Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim showed the world her best ugly cry to date, when she freaked out over zip lining in Thailand.

Pics: Kim Kardashian Flaunts Her Butt on Instagram

"I don't want to do it!" Kim cries as her family encourages her.

At least one family member not buying Kim's dramatic antics?

Bruce Jenner.

"Kim is crying -- oh man, come on," he tells cameras. "Get over it. We're just zip lining, having a little fun."

To justify it, Kim quickly pulls out the mom card.

"It's really crazy because when you become a mom, every decision is just different," she explains. "Like, I'm thinking, do I really care to do this, when I could be with my daughter? So why torture yourself?"

J.J. Abrams reveals new Star Wars: Episode VII starfighter

21 July 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now this is something to get really excited about Star Wars fans!

As part of the ‘Force for Change’ campaign old J.J. Abrams, director of Star Wars: Episode VII, has fronted a new video to announce what one lucky contributor could win. Now it is a wonderful prize (you’ll hear all about it in the video) but there as the video goes on you’ll notice something else that is also quite brilliant…

Watched it? Excited much?!?!

That right there is a new starfighter! But what is it exactly?

It looks a lot like an X-Wing, but also has many of the characteristics of the Z-95 Headhunter. If we look back to the original concept created by the legendary Ralph McQuarrie we see a fighter that also shares many similarities. Now the X-Wing went through many upgrades in the Expanded Universe of books, but with that no longer being in line with the films, »

First Still From Judd Apatow’s ‘Trainwreck’ Starring Amy Schumer & Bill Hader

21 July 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s a new film from Judd Apatow around the corner and today we’ve got the first, possibly purposefully set-up, behind-the-scenes shot from Trainwreck.

This is Apatow’s first movie for three years and I’m looking forward to seeing the final film. Among the huge cast, the leads take the shape of Amy Schumer and Bill Hader. Schumer wrote the script for this one and she’s claimed that it’s based on her own life experiences. She then took it to Apatow, who helped with the screenplay and reportedly he really pushed her to get deep down and personal. I’m also quite enjoying that not many plot details have been released, with the only knowledge being that Schumer in the lead is trying to rebuild her life with her boyfriend, best friend and parents. And that’s it!

Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei were recently added to the production, »

Who Is Behati Prinsloo, Adam Levine's New Wife?

20 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Adam Levine married Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo in Mexico on Saturday after dating on-and-off since 2012.

Adam Levine Marries Behati Prinsloo

Levine and Prinsloo began their romance a few months after the Maroon 5 front man split from his Victoria’s Secret Angel ex, Anne Vyalitsyna. After a brief split in 2013, Levine and Prinsloo got back together and were quickly engaged. The rest, as they say, is history.

Who Is Behati Prinsloo?

Prinsloo, 25, became a Victoria’s Secret Angel before she met Levine in 2009. Originally from a small town in Namibia, Prinsloo, the daughter of a minister, was discovered while visiting her grandparents in Cape Town. One summer, she signed with Storm founder Sarah Doukas, worked in Cape Town as a model and then left South Africa for London at the age of 16, where she lived in model apartments.

Girls are the dirtiest people ever. For the most part the flats would be empty. »

The plot to Star Wars: Episode VII revealed?

20 July 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Devin Faraci over at Badassdigest is claiming that he has the ‘exclusive’ plot details to Star Wars: Episode VII. While I’m doubting their veracity, there is still an outside chance that some of this could potentially constitute spoilers (in a world where pigs fly). Faraci says…

“Imagine the standard Star Wars crawl, and when it ends the camera pans up to the stars. But instead of a spaceship zooming into frame we see… a hand! A severed hand, tumbling through space. A severed hand gripping a light saber.”

It’s so idiotic I’m almost inclined to believe it. I didn’t believe the Jar Jar rumors when I heard them either. My instincts tell me it sounds almost too ludicrous to be true. Apparently the severed hand travels through space before winding up on a familiar planet…

“That hand falls onto a desert planet, where it is discovered »

18 July 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Another recurring character has been added to the upcoming sixth season of "The Vampire Diaries," and it's someone who's quite familiar with the concept of keeping secrets in written form. Chris Wood, formerly of "The Carrie Diaries," is heading to Mystic Falls!

Per TV Guide, Wood (who has also appeared in "Girls" and "Major Crimes") will play Kai, a "charmingly unstable newcomer with the unsettling ability to seem normal as the situation demands. He can be both playful and obsessive with a mix of adolescent angst."

The show returns on October 2nd, and Kai will be introduced during Episode 6.03.

Along with Wood and the previously announced Gabrielle Walsh and Colin Ferguson, TV Fanatic learned that Marco James, Emily C. Chang, Jayson Warner Smith, and Jodi Lyn O'Keefe are also slated to appear in Season 6.

Briefs: “Gotham”‘s Young Baddies, Enda’s Nightmare Scenario, And Did Ricky Martin Mentor Ian Thorpe’s Coming Out?

16 July 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Birthday shoutouts go to Mark Indelicato (above), who is 20, Will Ferrell is 47, Tony Kushner is 58, and a happy belated birthday to Tbl reader Kyle

Billy Eichner to write first book, “an as-yet-untitled comedic take on Hollywood and pop culture.”

Did Ricky Martin mentor Ian Thorpe about coming out?

Tony Goldwyn Was Advised Against Playing A Gay Role, But Said ‘Screw You.’ Of course, we all remember his first gay role, in Designing Women

Enda: The Nightmare Scenario in Which GOPers Push a Bad Bill That Gay Groups Dropped

Here’s the new teaser for Gotham, which features a lot of familiar characters.

Yesterday it was “Word Crimes,” and here’s Weird Al enlisting Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black in “Tacky.” Personally, I don’t find any of these examples tacky.

Here’s a giant hellmouth in Siberia.

Lena Dunham's 'Not That Kind of Tour' Attracts Big Talent

16 July 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Fasten your seat belts. Lena Dunham’s first book is just two-and-a-half months away. Before and after the release of her essay collection, “Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's ‘Learned,’” the writer-director-actress will take a cross-country promo tour. But she's making it more fun by pulling in some promo partners.  Appropriately titled “Not That Kind of Tour,” the three-week-long series will feature, besides the usual readings, discussions, Q & As and signed books, in EW’s words, an “absurdly amazing” set of talent. Besides "Girls" co-writer Jenni Konner and co-star Jemima Kirke, there's writer-director Miranda July, comedian Amy Schumer ("Inside Amy Schumer," Judd Apatow's upcoming "Trainwreck"), and actress-musician Carrie Brownstein ("Portlandia"). Creative types looking for exposure take note: Dunham has created an open call on her website, allowing talent to perform opening-act duties where »

These Actresses Are Just One of the Guys

16 July 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

abstew here. This year marks the 25th anniversary of one of the my favorite movies growing up, Troop Beverly Hills. (I mistakenly thought the woman with curly red hair on the VHS cover was my beloved Bette Midler, but when I realized it wasn't, I loved the movie too much to care and made my parents rent it at least once a month.) But all those times I watched those Wilderness Girls singing about the virtues of Cookie Time, I never thought that the actress playing Shelley Long's daughter, Hannah Nefler, would grow up to be my absolute favorite singer/songwriter Jenny Lewis. She writes the songs that make me remember that I have feelings. If you opened my chest it would be in the shape of Jenny Lewis.

When feckless Jenny (Kendrick) splits up with her long-term boyfriend just before Christmas, things are looking pretty bleak. But rather than spend the festivities alone, she moves in with her film-maker brother, his novelist wife, and their two-year-old son. From the guy behind the easy-going romantic drama Drinking Buddies and boasting a cool cast including Girls creator Lena Dunham, the relationship ups-and-downs come with a strong sense of humour - and reality. »

Welcome to the new Girl Power era from Colbie Caillat, Mary Lambert and more

15 July 2014 6:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

  In a time when a woman allowing herself to be photographed without make-up is often seen as a revolutionary and courageous act, there have been a number of videos/songs in the past week that serve as reminders that females don’t have to paint their faces, look like models, or have it together emotionally every moment to feel good about themselves. Welcome to a new age of  Girl Power. In Colbie Caillat’s “Try,” the singer/songwriter sings of her experience of always making sure she looked perfect—nails and hair done, right outfit— so people in the music industry would like her. The song serves as reminder to herself that she doesn’t have to try so hard; that people will respond to her authenticity. In the video, she expands the notion to women of different shapes and sizes, as they follow her lead by taking out their »

Milhiser was mostly relegated to the background during his SNL tenure. Wells got a strong start in the Season 39 premiere playing »

'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' with Neil Patrick Harris recoups investment on Broadway

15 July 2014 12:55 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Neil Patrick Harris, in fishnets and heels, has officially torn down the Broadway box office.

Less than three months after opening, the Harris-led, Tony-winning revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch has recouped its initial investment on Broadway. Harris won a Tony last month for playing the titular German transgender rocker in the John Cameron Mitchell and  Stephen Trask musical, breaking the fourth wall and directly interacting with the audience at the Belasco Theatre seven times a week (unlike most shows, which are scheduled for eight performances). The production, directed by Michael Mayer, took home a total of four Tony Awards, »

Just recently, Adam Driver (Adam Sackler on HBO’s “Girls”) told Backstage that he’s only ever seen one episode of the show. He watched the pilot with creator Lena Dunham, and of the experience he said, “I was like, ‘I can’t do this, ’cause I just keep seeing mistakes,’ ” he says. “I would just replay it in my head over and over again, driving myself crazy…everyone else around me crazy.” And Driver is among many actors who’d prefer to leave their performances on set. Some of the best, well-respected stars don’t watch themselves after their projects release. And that’s Ok with us, just as long as they continue to deliver these remarkable performances.
