Getting to Know Mags - Lynn Cohen

Lynn Cohen was cast as Mags in the upcoming Hunger Games: Catching Fire but who is she? Here is a great video with her:

Sam Claflin as Finnick in Catching Fire?

According to Deadling:

Sam Claflin has been the favorite, but he had a problem with an option owed to another studio that presented date problems. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter stars Ben Walker, Boyd Holbrook and Tyler Hoechlin were the other competitors for that role, but it looks now like things have cleared for Claflin and that he’ll play the role. You’ve seen him in Snow White And The Huntsman and Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Thoughts? Not who I had in mind, but pretty just the same... ;)

Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee in Catching Fire

Philip Seymour Hoffman, who will play Plutarch Heavensbee in Catching Fire, spoke to Entertainment Weekly about his role in the upcoming movie:

“It’s a great group of actors. It’s a great environment. And the character was something I was attracted to. It was just an interesting role. [SPOILER ALERT] He’s somebody who’s part of the revolution, but you don’t know it. The idea that somebody would be risking themselves in such an extreme way to join something that’s that dangerous because he thinks it’s the future…that’s interesting stuff, you know?”

Hoffman hadn’t read Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novels when he found out he might be up for a role, so he watched the first movie and is currently halfway through the second book. “It’s good,” he says. “I’ve read the script, which is true to the book — I kinda ruined it for myself. [Laughs] But I’m reading it anyway, because I really want to find out everything I need to know about this guy.”

#bb14 Nominees are...

spoiler alert....

As posted last night, Danielle won HOH - today she nominated Frank and Wil.

Only Ed Westwick can pull this off so sexily!



Rob talking to Kristen again?

It iswn't my life, I shouldn't care... I don't really care (I am focused on Olympics, my Vegas trip, summer, real life) but... come November, I will care if these two are talking.

I wouldn't forgive a cheater. That's just me. Young Hollywood has different rules, but I hope he doesn't forgive her.

I do hope it is true they are talking, or will soon.... not to reconnect, but to be professional.

Radar Online reports:

Pattinson has been hiding out at his friend Reese Witherspoon’s $7 million Ojai ranch, staying out of the public eye, and that’s where he started speaking to Kristen again but it doesn’t seem like he is going to forgive her any time soon.

What do you think? Do you even care anymore?

I just hope they both find peace and heal from this ordeal - it is hard when it is so public.... (though can be funny too... did you see Will Ferrell on Conan? LOL)

The Idiom Casting code for Hunger Games Catching Fire?

Thanks to some internet sleuthing by The Hob and Russ Bowen, it appears that the working title for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ may be ‘The Idiom’, which is actually quite an amusing mask title for the movie. A casting notice on the website for Catrett Locke Casting in Georgia for a new feature film titled ‘The Idiom’ was posted last week and bears some startling resemblances to extras needed for Catching Fire.

Lynn Cohen cast as Mags in Catching Fire

Santa Monica, CA, August 2, 2012- Lionsgate® and the filmmakers of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE are pleased to announce that Lynn Cohen has been cast in the role of Mags in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel Catching Fire. A former mentor to Finnick Odair, Mags is an eighty year old Hunger Games victor from District 4.


Known to New York theater audiences for decades of memorable roles, Cohen has also appeared in critically acclaimed films such as Steven Spielberg’s Munich and Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche, NY, as well as commercial fare such as Sex and The City and its sequel. She can next be seen in They Came Together, with Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will be directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has sold more than 50 million books in print and digital in the U.S. alone.

Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE on November 22, 2013.

#bb14 HoH Comp Spoilers from Live Feed

Tonight was epic. It is only a minor spoiler to say it is an endurance HoH Comp that will likely continue into the evening. I am on live feeds and will update as things happen. Check back / Refresh this page often.... spoilers under the cut...

More... So tonight's episode showed us America voted coaches return to the game. The choice was, coaches could return and re set the game, no one is evicted, OR they could NOT return, game continues, but some evicted houseguests would return next week.

If even one coach voted to return,they all would. Surprisingly, Boogie was the only one who did NOT vote to retun.

So coaches are back, neither Joe nor Frank went home, and now live feeds have all 12 houseguests on a "plank" of a boat (wall) rocking back and forth, holding on to a bar, with rain and burd poop being dropped on them... so far....

7:41pm - All are still up there. Boogie looks to be struggling the most - ha ha old man!

8:05pm - Boogie jumps, shortly after Jen is out, then Joe right after.

*Talk of pizza, but it is the BB Staff not the HGs that jumped*

Britt, Ian looking strongest at this point. Danielle not bad either. Shane complains of previous shoulcer injury, Janelle and Ashley both looking sore, moving a lot to adjust. Frank, Dan, Wil seem ok.

8:39pm - another dump of water/rain poured on them. Still just the three out.

8:42pm - Ashley falls.

8:44pm - Dan falls.

9:05pm - Frank is out.

6 remain: Shane, Wil, Danielle Janelle, Brit, Ian.

9:22pm - Boogie upset about other houseguests locking elbows, asks if it is a rule, Joe says no, just a saftey caution. Boogie yells to Ian "lock elbows if you need to, everyone else is" etc. etc.

Rain starts again. Shane struggling most. Ian seems to be in best shape.

9:37pm - Wil and Shane jumped off together.

9:40pm - Janelle is out.

Danielle, Brit, Ian left.

9:46pm - Danielle, Brit, Ian remain, houseguests in house changing, Dan giving coach speech to Danielle "not your coach but I will help you, I chose you for a reason, you want to win don't you? You don't take deals, you make deals" ha ha

10:08pm - Ian, after triple checking he was safe, jumped.

10:09 - Brit jumps. Danielle wins!!!

Danielle wins, Dan tackles her in congrats, Shane does same with an added kiss.

Josh Hutcherson talks about Catching Fire, Liam Hemsworth's wedding and more...

Josh Hutcherson called into Ryan Seacrest:

Will Josh Be Attending Miley & Liam’s Wedding? “I’m definitely going to go. I’m for sure gonna go. Liam’s my boy! I’m definitely going to be there to support him. I haven’t been invited, so I have to get the invite first to know if I’m going. I’ve got to make sure I’m invited. I say I’m going, but I don’t know, maybe Liam has other plans for that.” “I know when I talked to him that they hadn’t had any plans. This was like a couple months ago when they first had made an announcement, but I don’t know what the plans are. I know he’s in Philly, I think he was in New Orleans for a while too, he’s been bouncing around. It’s tough when you’re in a relationship and you’re on set. I’m not in one right now because of that. Because I’m about ready to go away for like four months and it’s very challenging to keep your mind focused…” “I’ve been training for about the last month or so now and I head out in about two weeks to go down to Atlanta to start shooting. It’s not quite intense as the first round that I did last year, but it’s just basically getting in good shape. We’re pretty much wearing these body suits the entire time, so one would like be in good shape to wear a spandex neoprene body suit for an entire movie.” On Kissing Jennifer Lawrence: “Actually it’s funny because we’re such good friends that in those moments where it has to be romantic it’s sometimes challenging because we have such a good time with what we do that we have to be serious and really buckle down.”

Catching Fire Headed to Hawaii?

Exciting news surrounding Catching Fire filming locations:

After scouting Kauai, Maui, Hawaii island and Oahu, executives for Hunger Games: Catching Fire selected Oahu as a location for four to five weeks of filming beginning as early as November and including preproduction will wrap in Hawaii just before the December Christmas break.

Sounds beautiful! I want to go to Hawaii!

SWATH Sequel seeking new director after Rupert Sanders affair with Kristen Stewart? Wife Liberty Ross says so!

Radar Online Reports:

Rupert Sanders has been told by wife Liberty Ross to forget about directing Snow White and the Huntsman 2 if he wants to win her back, is exclusively reporting.

The British model gave the stern warning to the movie director in a desperate bid to save their marriage after revelations he had an affair with Kristen Stewart .

Sanders, 41, was originally lined up to direct the sequel after it became a box office success. However, he is yet to sign an agreement with Universal Pictures who are considering putting someone else in the director’s chair.

“Liberty let it be known in no uncertain terms that Rupert can’t direct the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman,” a source revealed.

“They are trying to work things out after he was caught having an affair, and that is one of the sticking points. She just doesn’t want him to ever work with Kristen again.

“Rupert is obviously disappointed because Snow White and the Huntsman was his directorial debut, and he had hoped on building on that with a follow-up after some decent reviews.

“But he knows his actions were inexcusable, and he’s going to have to bite the bullet and listen to his wife on this one.

“Also, when Rupert signed up for Snow White and the Huntsman, he didn’t know he was going to get a chance to direct a sequel. His contract with Universal was only for one movie. It was a verbal agreement that he was to take the reigns on the sequel, nothing was ever signed.

“Kristen, as the film’s lead, will get preference over Rupert and Universal will just find another director,” the source said.

Will Ferrell is upset over Robsten's break-up LOL

Grey's Anatomy...

With news that Eric Dane is leaving Grey's Anatomy, it had me worried, who survives and who dies following last season's finale crash..... **SPOILERS**

Confirming that Derek, Cristina and Meredith will all survive the crash, Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and Mark's (the departing Eric Dane) days may be numbered showrunner Rhimes hints in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

THR interviews Shondra Rhimes to discuss this departure and more about the upcoming season:


How will Mark's upcoming departure be handled?
I'm really proud of the way we're handing his exit. I really wanted and fought for that character to be given their due. I didn't want to come back to this season and say, "Mark Sloane is gone." I really wanted to give that character his due and we came up with a beautiful and creative way to showcase that and that goodbye.

How will his departure impact Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona and their shared family with him?
His departure impacts everybody. Mark is a teacher to Jackson, he's best friends with Derek, he's Callie's best friend, he's Sofia's father. It's going to be a big loss for everyone and I don't want to minimize that.

Torrey DeVitto on Pretty Little Liars, Vampire Diaries and more...

Torrey is a lucky lady, not only does she play Dr. Meredith Fell on Vampire Diaries AND Melissa Hastins on Pretty Little Liars, she is married to sexy TVD co-star Paul Wesley...

In a recent interview she was asked about both shows and what's to come for her characters.....

Wet Paint writes:

Wetpaint Entertainment: Do you know if you’re coming back to The Vampire Diaries?
Torrey DeVitto: I am coming back, yes.

How does it work out schedule-wise with doing both Pretty Little Liars and Vampire Diaries? Have they ever overlapped?
One, I think, overlapped a little bit last year before Pretty Little Liars wrapped in, I think, late November, early December. But Pretty Little Liars started up again in April, and Vampire Diaries went on hiatus in April. So starting July 10th, now the shows are at the same time. I haven’t had a conflict yet, but I know I still have X amount with Pretty Little Liars, and I know I’m still doing some Vampire Diaries. It’s just about time that they’re going to start, I think, conflicting a little bit. So we’ll see how that works out.

Might it be trickier if you’re doing more on Vampire Diaries?
It would be trickier because it’s in Atlanta rather than L.A., but I know that both people know each other. It’s the same producing companies and stuff. So I’m sure they’ll work something out.

Imagine Steffan and the doc hooking up, much like Elena and Damon have (and are real life couple) Man, I need to get cast on a show with Channing Tatum - wait, he did that too with wife Jenna Step Up 1... *le sigh*

Life Of Pi Trailer

I loved this novel and I can NOT wait to see this movie, not only is it an amazing story, it looks to be visually sensational....

Rob kicks Kristen out?!

earlier post about moving trucks Saturday here

People Magazine reports:

A source tells PEOPLE that the actor, who has been staying out of sight since leaving the home he shares with Stewart in Los Angeles, recently asked her to remove her belongings from the house.

And early Saturday morning, a moving truck was spotted doing just that.

News of Stewart's infidelity – she cheated on Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, who is married with kids – first broke last week. The 22-year-old actress subsequently apologized to Pattinson for cheating, and sources told PEOPLE they hadn't spoken since until now.

"The entire thing has been such a blow to Rob. Talk about having his heart ripped out," a source who knows the couple tells PEOPLE. "Rob just isn't going to be able to get past the cheating – one time or not."

Nevertheless, the two are scheduled as co-presenters at MTV's Video Music Awards on Sept. 6.

So..... Things may get awkward moving forward... I hope media respects him and doesn't push him to discuss this during Cosmopolis promo coming up in USA :(

#bb14 updates - Drunk Sushi Party and more

It is a bit of a spoiler to tell you there is a sushi party that was won... but there is far more to share from tonights live feeds...


Janelle, Boogie, Dan, Brit, Shane, Danielle go outside to a sushi party where they each get two martini's and sushi and desserts

Inside the HGs drink beers and wine and do shots of wine - they get hammered, dressed up, and rowdy. Quite entertaining!

When sushi partiers join HGs inside they get more booze and play spin the bottle where there are numerous kisses between HGs... Brit & Ash, Boogie & Ash (holy tongue!), Jenn and Frank, Ian and Ash, Wil and Boogie, Danielle and Shane, and more!

Cake food fight, chanting and outfits and craziness

Ian streks with the cowboy hat covering his hoo-haw, later Wil (who has been dressed only in a blazer, speedo and sailor hat with sun glasses) strips down to streak under a bridge of HGs arms and intot he pool - skinny dippinggggg....

At one point Dan pulls Danielle aside to stop her drinking, Danielle also gets paranoid to Britney that Shane "won't look at me, he is awkward becaus of the kiss" (honestly, it was one of the smallest, shortest kisses, she is making something out of nothing)

It was great fun, very entertaining to watch on live feeds!

Later Ash says she feels slutty kissing so many people, they make fun of the kisses esp Boogie comingin for the kill all tongue ha ha ha

So fun!

Flash back to aprox 9:45pm BBT until oh however long you would like... at least an hour of awesomness!
