Hollywood Heart Helps Teens Take the Spotlight

Hollywood Heart Helps Teens Take the Spotlight
A Boeing 747 crash-lands on a deserted island. The survivors who stumble out of the wreckage are bleary-eyed and disoriented. Many are badly injured. They band together to search for a way back to civilization.

Sound familiar? Well, this “Lost” weekend was actually an exercise. And the “survivors” were at-risk teens and chronically ill young adults participating in a workshop held by the nonprofit org Hollywood Heart, which teamed up with electronics maker Rohde & Schwarz Dvs to teach the ins and outs of filmmaking, courtesy of those inside the biz, helping them to create their own short films.

The workshop, titled Shooting Stars, was held last month, and the shorts will be screened June 6 in red-carpet, Hollywood fashion at the Technicolor Burbank Theater, where the youngsters’ accomplishments will be celebrated.

’90210′ Recap: Naomi Takes Down Holly & Liam Gets Dirrty!

This recap is brought to you by Ritalin, the preferred drug of choice for college dropouts recording their first Ep. Of all the lessons I learned from watching the Oct. 4 episode of 90210, the most valuable was how Liam (Matt Lanter) was able to turn a bar commercial into a Guys Gone Wild shoot in three easy steps: (1) Spill beer (2) Remove shirt (3) Add wind! And I'm glad business picked up, because if pregnant Jane (Kristina Apgar) spent one more day crying in that empty bar, they'd have to rename it "Tears and Beers." Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) also learned an important lessons this week: Never trust a cowboy. It turns out Austin (Justin Deeley) was using her to free himself from Holly (Megalyn Echikunwoke), who he was apparently hooking up with. So when her nerd-in-shining-armor Max (Josh Zuckerman) told her he transfered to Caltech to be closer to her, choosing him over

’90210′ Recap: Liam & Annie Break Up For Realz. And Someone’s Pregnant! Also For Realz.

This episode wasn't called 'Greek Tragedy' for nothing! (Rip 'Lannie.') I literally lost track of the number of emotional, dramatic speeches made by Liam (Matt Lanter) on the Sept. 27 episode of 90210 -- but it's Ok, because he delivered them all with poise, beauty, and perfectly side-swept bangs. Though something tells me Annie (Shenae Grimes) didn't quite appreciate his speech to her as much as I did, considering it ended with "I'll always love you..." but we should really break up. And the night took an even darker turn for Annie when she learned she's, basically, becoming a prostitute. These super-creepy Turkish guys paid her and her friend to spend the night with them, and since Annie kissed one of them on the dance floor, they technically paid for a sexual favor -- though, if you ask me, they didn't really get their money's worth. Side note: Liam's new lady

90210 Exclusive: American Idol Alum Kellie Pickler to Make Acting Debut
Kellie Pickler is set to make her acting debut on 90210 this fall, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The American Idol alum will play Sally, the country-singing cousin of local cowboy Austin (Justin Deeley).

The role shouldn’t be much of a stretch for Pickler, who has had four songs on Billboard‘s Hot Country chart. In fact, she will perform one of those singles, “Tough,” during the episode.

Pickler is not the sole singer appearing on the new season of 90210, debuting Sept. 13. As TVLine previously reported, Brandy has been tapped for a major Season 4 arc. Other new additions include Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Sarah Hagan,

90210 Casts Justin Deeley and CSI Miami’s Megalyn Echikunwoke

There are a couple of new names moving to the most popular zip code in TV land, as TVLine reports that Justin Deeley and Megalyn Echikunwoke (CSI: Miami, The 4400, 24) will be showing up in Season 4 of the CW’s 90210.

You might recognize Deeley from his brief stint as a stripper on the series last season, but this time around he’ll play a cowboy-type named Austin that happens to be the son of a country music superstar. Austin might also see some romantic sparks fly with AnnaLynne McCord’s Naomi.

Austin might not be one to brag about how well off he is, but Echikunwoke’s Holly doesn’t share the same problem. She has no worries when it comes to showing off her beauty, wealth, and status as the head of the best sorority at Cu. While everyone else seems to be in awe of her, you can

News: Rick Springfield Pleads Not Guilty, NBC Schedule, 90210

NBC announces fall premiere dates

Among the new shows, The Playboy Club debuts on Monday, September 19.

Rick Springfield pleads not guilty to post-fob DUI

Springfield is said to have registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.10% on a breathalyzer, and was reported to have been "belligerent," threatening to kill a deputy and his family if the $200,000 Sting Ray were towed.

Wednesday, an attorney representing Springfield appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.

Justin Deeley and Megalyn Echikunwoke Cast on 90210

  • TVfanatic
90210 has cast two new players, and both will play significant roles in the life of Naomi.

First: Justin Deeley will come on board as Austin, the son of a country music superstar who has looks, money... but not the kind of attitude that typically accompanies either.

Next: while Naomi is swooning over Austin, she'll be fighting with Megalyn Echikunwoke's Holly. Pretty much the opposite of Deely's character, Holly is rich and snooty and is the head of the top sorority at Cu.

It will be a busy season, as always, for Naomi.

This will be Deely first extended role of any kind, while Echikunwoke has appeared in CSI: Miami and Raising the Bar.

Earlier this week, the series cast Kristina Apgar as a love interest for Liam.

In other casting news, CSI: Miami‘s Megalyn Echikunwoke has been tapped to play Holly, Naomi’s new college archnemesis.

But first, more on Deeley…

Though Austin comes off a lot like Brad Pitt’s scruffy-hot character in Thelma & Louise, he actually comes from money — and lots of it. Turns out he’s the son of a country music superstar, but he doesn’t flaunt his fame, fortune and sexiness.

Privileged: CW Series Cancelled, No Season Two for Joanna Garcia and Company

Though it was looking like the underperforming CW series had a chance at survival, the network has decided to pull the plug on Privileged.

Privileged follows the story of Megan Smith (Joanna Garcia), a perky young journalist who becomes a live-in tutor for two wealthy teenage girls (Lucy Hale and Ashley Newbrough). Others in the cast include Michael Cassidy, Allan Louis, Brian Hallisay, Kristina Apgar, and Anne Archer.

Despite positive reviews and buzz, Privileged debuted on September 9, 2008 to just 2.64 million viewers and a 1.2/3 rating/share of the 18-49 demographic. Those numbers weren't great for the junior network and ratings for subsequent episodes fell significantly over the rest of the season.

The network made multiple attempts to boost the show’s audience -- giving it more exposure by rerunning episodes in various timeslot -- but most viewers just didn’t seem to be particularly interested.

Though the ratings certainly hadn't mandated

Hayden Doesn't Care Who You Vote For, Just That You Do

  • Popsugar
Hayden Panettiere was back in activist mode last night to host a bash for Declare Yourself. The event brought out stars like Emily VanCamp, Zachary Quinto, and Danity Kane, but it looks like Jessica Alba and her slightly scary PSA skipped this one in favor of bikini time. Hayden took the stage to make a speech, though she was more low-key when asked who she'll be casting her ballot for on Nov. 5. She simply said, "I'm a Democrat, so . . . " The election is only a little more than a month away, but while we're waiting to change the world, we can watch Hayden's alter ego doing her part on Heroes, which is one of our 15 shows to watch now. For more than 25 pictures of those Declaring Themselves, just read more. Images include: Hayden Panettiere, Zachary Quinto, Dania Ramirez, Aubrey O'Day, Amber Stevens, Jessica Rose, Adrienne Bailon, Emily VanCamp, Scott Krinsky, Danity Kane,
