No social media? No problem.
Hollywood hunk Zac Efron got wet yesterday for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and in turn nominated his famous pal Robert Pattinson. That obviously got fans excited—because who doesn’t want to see the Twilight star get dumped on?—but many also wondered how we would see R.Pattz’s video. After all, he’s not on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.
Luckily, Efron helped his buddy out and posted the clip for Pattinson, and what we saw is so hilarious and so adorable, we couldn’t help but fall in love with Edward Cullen, er, Robert Pattinson’s boyish charms all over again.
In the first season of BBC Three’s Cuckoo, a normal family was turned upside down when their daughter came home from a summer abroad having married an unusual man named Cuckoo (played by Andy Samberg). But with season two of the series kicking off with Cuckoo’s death, there was a hippie-sized hole left in the show’s lineup. Luckily, Taylor Lautner was there to fill it.
In the first episode of the second season, which premiered last Thursday, Lautner came on board as Dale Jr., a very hairy young man who left behind his ashram in India to look for his biological father. Twist: His father was Cuckoo, which meant Dale Jr. now found himself among his father’s widow and her family.
But that isn’t the only twist in the episode. Rather, Lautner’s comedic debut quickly became the most talked-about element of the show, both shocking and impressing viewers who perhaps only knew him from his work on the Twilight films. And let’s just say that Dale is a far cry from Jacob Black. Below, watch a clip from Lautner’s debut.
Cuckoo‘s second episode airs on Thursday, Aug. 14 at 10 p.m. (U.K. time) on BBC Three.
IFC Films has released the first Camp X-Ray trailer for writer/director Peter Sattler’s Guantanamo Bay drama. The film stars Kristen Stewart as a young private stationed at the aforementioned prison and revolves around the complex relationship that develops between her and a foreign detainee, played by A Separation star Peyman Maadi. I caught the film at Sundance at found it to be a bit of a mixed bag. It touches on the controversial issues surrounding the treatment of Guantanamo detainees and does a nice job of portraying them as human beings rather than faceless villains, and in particular the scenes between Stewart and Maadi are quite strong and compelling. However, other aspects of the film tend to delve into melodrama territory and certain subplots coming off as superfluous and unfocused. This is Sattler’s first feature and he certainly shows some promise, especially when it comes to intimate character-driven scenes, so I’m definitely eager to see how his career progresses going forward.
Hit the jump to watch the Camp X-Ray trailer and click here to read my full review. The film also stars Lane Garrison, John Carrol Lynch, and Cory Michael Smith. Camp X-Ray opens in theaters and VOD on October 28th.
Kellan Lutz gets truly into character in this exclusive, behind-the-scenes look from Tarzan.
Cameras take us behind the motion-capture picture to see how it was really filmed, into the recording studio and Kellan‘s co-star Spencer Locke chats up the film, now out on DVD and Blu-ray NOW.
Tarzan summary: During an expedition to a remote African jungle, the Greystoke family’s helicopter crashes, leaving one survivor: the young boy J.J., nicknamed Tarzan (Lutz). Raised by gorillas, Tarzan lives by the laws of the jungle — until he encounters another human being, the courageous and beautiful Jane Porter (Locke).
For Tarzan and Jane, it’s love at first sight — and the beginning of a thrilling adventure — as Tarzan uses his instincts and intellect to protect his jungle home and the woman he loves.
Taylor Lautner sports two very different looks in the trailer for his upcoming show Cuckoo!
The 22-year-old actor first appears in the trailer as a crazy, disheveled, and bearded man who seems to alarm the family members that don’t recognize him.
Taylor is replacing Andy Samberg for the second season of the show and will be playing a brand new character that is being billed as “just as cuckoo.”
Cuckoo will air in the UK on BBC Three starting on August 7 at 10pm.
Ever wondered what Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway would look like in drag? Us either.
Regardless, the two actresses (plus peer Brie Larson) dressed up like dudes for pal Jenny Lewis’ “Just One of the Guys” music video. The song serves as the first track from The Voyager, the indie singer-songwriter’s first solo album in six years. Lewis calls the compilation “the hardest one” she’s ever made.
What was it like shooting the music video? “We screamed with laughter all day, huddled behind the monitor,” Lewis tells GQ. “I haven’t laughed that hard since What About Bob? came out on laser disk.”
