But Not For The Role Of Anna...
As we know, the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie is in full effect. A little while back a director finally became attached to the project, and lots of folks had lots to say about Sam Taylor-Johnson (AKA Aaron Taylor-Johnson‘s wife) coming on board. But the most exciting stuff has come from the casting rumors. Alex Pettyfer, Stephen Amell, and lots of others have been rumored to be a part of the film, and now we’re hearing that supermodel Cara Delevingne (who I fell in love with back when she was featured in that Love Magazine shoot) has auditioned for a part.

Diane Keaton As Dory's Mom? YesPleaseMoreThankYou.
Back in April we learned that Finding Dory would be the title for the upcoming and highly-anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo. For those of us who still cry at various points throughout the original movie, a sequel sounds like a pretty awesome idea. And since Ellen DeGeneres is on board to reprise her role as the lovable, unforgettable (and simultaneously forgetful) Dory, there’s plenty to get excited about. Today we have a few more details about the upcoming production, so click inside for more!

Plus, We Have A '24' Return Date
Back in May we learned the AMAZING news that Fox is bringing back the MUCH-BELOVED action/drama series 24 in a limited episode run next year. As you may recall, plans have been in the works ever since 24 ended it’s series run a few years ago to adapt the story for the big screen … but the film version of 24 never got off the ground. We also learned in May that 24 lead Kiefer Sutherland signed on for the series … but, at the time, it was NOT reported that Mary Lynn Rajskub (who plays the indispensable Chloe O’Brian on the series) was added to the new series. Today, at last, we learn officially that YES Mary Lynn will return as Chloe and we find out when 24: Live Another Day will debut on Fox! Woot!!! More »

Yes To This Whole Movement.
As you all know by now, Elisabeth Moss is my homegirl and we all need to bow down. For me Moss/Peggy Olson from Mad Men is right up there with Kerry Washington/Olivia Pope, so I’m always excited to see these ladies in other roles. Moss scored a couple of Emmy nods this year, both for her work on Mad Men and for her new series Top Of The Lake. And now she’s heading to the big screen. Jason Schwartzman (who I can’t wait to see in the upcoming Bored To Death movie) will star alongside Moss in a new movie from indie filmmaker Alex Ross Perry. This could be awesome sauce!

And Yes, I've Finally Started Watching 'Damages'
As many of you know, I have a new jam and her name is Rose Byrne. Recently I’ve been sorta, kinda, stalking her on the red carpet, then there was that photo shoot with Harper’s Bazaar, and then last night it went down on Netflix in a big way. And by ‘it’ I mean ‘the insanity that was the first 4 1/2 episode of Damages.’ I’ve seen Rose in a couple of movies but finally had to check out the show that so many PITNBrs were heralding. And yes, it is awesome, and I cannot wait to find out why the hell my girl showed up all bloody and crazy-looking in that first episode! Anywho, the actress is now in talks to join the Annie remake we’ve been hearing so much about. Click inside for more!

Wait, is this good news ... or bad?
Earlier this year we heard a lot of casting rumors about the forthcoming sequel film to the Star Wars franchise when we learned that the original Star Wars Trio (Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford) will appear in Episode VII and today we are hearing new casting rumors. Apparently, both Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron are RUMORED for the new Star Wars movie … which is exciting and terrifying all at once. As I understand it, most of the roles in the new Star Wars movie will be played by newcomers … but invariably there will be known actors cast in the movie. Will Ryan and Zac be among the famous faces that we already know taking up roles A Long Time Ago In A Galaxy Far, Far Away? More »
Meet the new Crew
Back in May we learned officially that singers Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio joined Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato on the judging panel of the forthcoming third season of the competitive reality TV series The X Factor here in the US and today we get our first look at the first promo video released for the show. As you can see in the embed above, the new judges and the old are brought together in a fun little clip that is meant to introduce the new face of the X Factor judging panel to fans of the show (host Mario Lopez also gets in on the fun as well). I barely watched The X Factor last season (only doing so to watch our dear Britney Spears on the show as judge) so I doubt I’ll watch much of the new season but … I am quite curious to see how Kelly and Paulina do on the show. I’m not sure that this judging panel has enough star-power to really drive ratings but … we shall see. The third season of The X Factor will premiere on Fox in September.

Will She Be a Bartender at CBGB's?
On Sunday we learned that actress Lindsey Gort won the role of the young Samantha Jones in the CW series The Carrie Diaries that is a kinda/sorta prequel series to HBO‘s Sex and the City. Today we get our first look at Lindsey in character as Samantha as she will appear on the show. If memory serves, Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker in SaTC) reveals that she first met her BFF Samantha while she was bartendning at the punk rock bar CBGB’s. I’m hoping that that part of Samantha‘s fictional past will be honored in The Carrie Diaries when she is introduced on the show this Fall. Click below to see this first promo photo of the young Samantha Jones and get your first look at how the character will be introduced on TCD. More »
This Could Be Huge
My summer reading list just keeps getting longer, and it’s starting to creep me out/I cannot wait to read this book now! Wild is a bestselling memoir that I kept hearing great things about a while back, and now it’s coming to the big screen. Have any of y’all read this book? Based on the description, it sounds pretty epic and I’m expecting a pretty epic film to go along with. Reese Witherspoon (who finally gets a drama-free headline, following that crazy arrest) just landed the lead role and she’s definitely got her work cut out for her, as the story follows a woman in her mid-20s who hikes 1,000 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. As in, 1,000 friggen miles. Click inside for more!
