Stepping out of the haunted village hall for a break from a dance with the supernatural, Simon Merrells took the time to rendezvous with HeyUGuys to discuss his foray into horror with Judas Ghost. Probably most recognised for his role on TV’s Spartacus: War of the Damned in which he played the villainous Crassus with brutal pomp, Merrells is a regular face on both the big and the small screen.
During the course of our brief conversation he shared with us how he discovered his love of performance, and storytelling, as well as his early memories of horror’s most famous monsters and authors. Whilst reflecting on filmmaking as a musical journey, along with the fortunes of the modern short film he invited us inside the village hall to discuss his one location supernatural horror.
Why a career in acting? Was there that one inspirational moment?

Tonight, Rizzoli & Isles mourned a dear friend, and it was a lovely goodbye. Elsewhere on television, Pretty Little Liars delivered its usual soapy insanity and we ate up every moment of it. Plus, Covert Affairs has returned, and the Real Housewives of New York continued their disastrous vacation. If you're not caught up on tonight's TV, get out now, but if you are, welcome! Pretty Little Liars: Guess who's back! If you guessed Ezra, you would be correct. The English teacher returned to Rosewood after his gunshot wound, and Aria wasted little time in confessing to him about killing Shana, to which he responded that he would "help." Hanna, meanwhile, was forced to confront the fact »

It is quite uncommon to come across a literate romance comedy featuring middle-aged academics engaging in conflicting ideologies and clashing personalities that eventually leads to an affair of the heart. Refreshingly, the engaging but uneven Words and Pictures dares to break up the monotony among the larger-than-life comic book superheroes, sci-fi spectacles and raunchy comedies that saturate the big screen in the free-for-all summertime movie season.
Actually, it is also nice to see grown-up love stories that incorporate a sense of intellectualism, artistry and Hepburn/Tracy-inspired sparring. Director Fred Schepisi (“Roxanne”) and screenwriter Gerald Di Pego create an artsy bubble where two opinionated and flawed educators (Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche) tangle in the arena of words and pictures. Although the material is often smart, insightful »

The world of cinema has always had a certain need to deify teachers and present their actions as what forms the foundations of their students’ lives. As a teacher myself you would probably expect me to be okay with such a portrayal, but in actual fact it kind of undermines the importance of the job in real life terms. One thing that The English Teacher has going for it, is that it takes a rather bitter look at the need to inspire, which is a refreshing change if nothing else.
Linda Sinclair (Moore) is a 45 year old spinster who may have resigned herself to a life living in her books, but she also keeps an eye out for potential love interests. »

Looks like love! Lily Collins and Thomas Cocquerel fueled speculation that they're indeed an item after they were photographed leaving Craig's restaurant in L.A. on Wednesday. Just a few hours earlier, Us Weekly reported that the Stuck in Love actress had recently been set up with the Australian actor. "A friend introduced them," a source told Us. "It's new. He is an all around great guy. She's happy." Collins' rep declined to comment on the actress' personal life when contacted by E! News. The English Teacher star hasn't exactly been hiding her relationship with the Aussie. She shared two WhoSay pictures of him earlier in the week, writing, "Third »
