Paying tribute to Cory Monteith via the medium of song can be heartbreaking, but that's how they do everything at McKinley High. As Monteith's absence is tackled head-on with the news of Finn's sudden death, Mr Schue is holding everything together as old classmates gather to grieve. Glee often glosses over big issues in a sickly-sweet way, but this is a bold episode with genuine cast reactions that are hard to watch, especially when Monteith's real-life girlfriend Lea Michele sobs her heart out.

Heather Graham's new movie, "At Any Price," couldn't be more different from the next movie she's appearing in, "The Hangover Part III," which opens at the end of May. In Ramin Bahrani's intimate drama, part of this year's Tribeca Film Festival, Graham plays a woman who inadvertently becomes the link between a Type-a father (Dennis Quaid) and his troubled son (Zac Efron). The corn-fed Whipple family is a far cry from the Wolfpack, and the stakes are much higher. Graham sat down to chat with Moviefone about "King Corn," having David Duchovny's baby on "Californication," and the script she wants to direct. Moviefone: Which aspect of the film attracted you most? Heather Graham: At first, it was Ramin Bahrani, because I really liked his other films, and to be honest, I really learned a lot more about farming from working on the film. Once I learned about it, »

Selena’s co-star in the movie ‘Behaving Badly’ talked about her in a candid interview and only had nice things to say. Nat was especially impressed by how Selena handled her relationship!
Nat Wolff is totally starstruck by Selena Gomez! Talking about their upcoming movie together, Behaving Badly, Nat raves about how nice and sweet Selena is, and how she showed amazing composure during all of her Justin Bieber drama.
“Selena is such a big star on a level that I’d never been around,” Nat tells Us Weekly. You could say that again — the 18-year-old actor is just getting his feet wet in Hollywood.
Nat continues, explaining that while they were filming together she was still dating Justin, so the attention she was getting was “insane,” but Nat also admits that Selena couldn’t have handled the situation better: “she handled it »

Paul Rudd and Tina Fey supply most of the romantic-comedy in Admission, director Paul Weitz’s new movie about a by-the-book Princeton University admissions officer (Fey) who is thrown for a loop when a charming old classmate (Rudd) suggests one of his most talented college-bound students just might be the child she put up for adoption years ago. But younger audiences who grew up watching The Naked Brothers Band will be delighted to recognize that Rudd’s academic prodigy, Jeremiah, is none other than a taller, less shaggy Nat Wolff, the older sibling from Nickelodeon’s hit musical-comedy TV series »

From writer/director Harmony Korine, Spring Breakers shows another, even seedier side of the seasonal American ritual known as spring break, which draws hordes of college students to the Florida coast and elsewhere, each year. When best friends Brit (Ashley Benson), Faith (Selena Gomez), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens) and Cotty (Rachel Korine) decide to go on their own spring break adventure, their lack of funds leads them down a path straight to local rapper/drug pusher/arms dealer Alien (James Franco), who lures them away from the party of a lifetime into the criminal underbelly that they may never escape from. At the film’s press day, actress Selena Gomez spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about why this script intrigued her and made her want to sign on, what she learned from the experience that she wishes she could go back and tell herself on the first day of filming, »

Gomez, Hudgens, Franco, guns and bikinis: Outstanding domestic debut Harmony Korine's crime flick Spring Breakers currently boasts the year's highest per-theater average. That's no small feat. As per final Us/Canada weekend box-office numbers published on the web site Box Office Mojo, this past weekend (March 15-17) the film raked in $263,002 at three locations (two in New York City, one in Los Angeles). That's down slightly from the studio's $270,000 estimate released on Sunday, but still enough to average a fantastic $87,667 per venue. (Pictured above: Gomez [scroll down for more on Gomez's box-office performance to date; pictured below: bad girls in bikinis in court.) One of the highest opening weekend per-theater averages ever Spring Breakers was down one spot on Box Office Mojo's post-1982 chart of opening-weekend per-theater averages.

Once inflation is factored in, Spring Breakers drops to the 52nd spot (down nine spots from yesterday's estimates), landing between Daniel Myrick »

Paul Weitz’s new film Admission turns an inside eye on a subject near and not-so-dear to many of us---the college admissions process. At the heart of it is Portia Nathan (played by a more serious Tina Fey than we are used to seeing), a Princeton admissions officer whose world is suddenly thrown for a loop when a routine visit to an alternative school forces her to cross paths with a teacher (Paul Rudd) who thinks he may have found the son Portia gave up for adoption in college. Portia finds herself bending the rules, both official college rules and rules she has imposed upon herself to help this boy (Nat Wolff) get into Princeton, while falling into an oddly sweet relationship with his teacher. The film also stars a hilarious Lily Tomlin as Fey’s feminist, fire-breathing mother. At the press day for the film, Nat Wolff (The Naked Brothers Band »

If you don't know who Nat Wolff is, a) you might be living under a rock, and b) you will soon. The high school senior just wrapped work on the much buzzed about indie flick "Palo Alto," in which he portrays a character from the twisted imagination of James Franco. There are also pictures of him making out with Selena Gomez all over the internet right now -- granted, he was shooting a scene for his role in "Behaving Badly," but don't think it hasn't gotten tongues wagging.
Perhaps best known as one half of the "Naked Brothers Band," Nat took a break from the Nickelodeon spotlight to grow up and reappear in front of cameras as a young man -- a remarkably talented and winsome young man. Among his upcoming film roles, Wolff stars opposite Tina Fey and Paul Rudd in Focus Features' upcoming "Admission." A songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, »
Selena Gomez revealed which member from One Direction she would kiss while talking to ‘Extra‘ host Terri Seymour. The celebrity news personality spoke to the singer at the celebration of her Nylon magazine cover. Seymour told the ‘Behaving Badly’ star that during a recent radio interview with the English boy band, they said out of any star right now, they would pick Gomez to kiss. The former Disney star was surprised with the pop singers’ answer, saying “That’s really nice! I love all of them. They’re so sweet. They’re really good guys.” When asked by Seymour which of the One Direction members she would kiss, an embarrassed Gomez said, “Oh, [ Read More ]

Envision Media Arts (Ema) announced today that Dylan McDermott will star in Freezer, an action-thriller shooting this month in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Mikael Salomon will direct from a script by Tom Doganoglu and Shane Weisfeld. Lee Nelson and David Buelow will produce for Envision Media.
Robert (McDermott), an everyday guy, finds himself tested beyond human endurance when he awakens to find himself locked in an industrial freezer by Russian thugs. They insist he returns the $8 million dollars he stole from them, the only problem is, Robert has no idea what they are talking about.... As he fights for his life before freezing to death, the truth slowly reveals itself.
Here's what producer Lee Nelson had to say about the casting addition.
When American Horror Story co-showrunner Ryan Murphy revealed after the conclusion of Season 1 that many of the actors would be returning for season 2, he also explained that the two actors who played the Harmons, Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott, would not.
Happily for us, he wasn’t entirely accurate, as we were treated to an appearance by the talented Mr. McDermott during the last episode before the holiday break. This season he is sitting on the opposite side of the therapist chair, as it was revealed that he is playing the very disturbed Johnny Thredson, son of mass murderer Oliver Thredson (played in the 1960s time setting by Zachary Quinto).
The day after his debut as the modern day Bloody Face, he talked with the press about this season versus last, how this season will end (spoiler free), and violence on TV. Please be advised that this interview took place »
