To have the opportunity to work with Andrew, Trevor and Gillian is a dream come true.

Actor Ewan McGregor, who plays Henry in The Real Thing, speaks with Education Dramaturg Ted Sod about his role in The Real Thing.
Ted Sod: Let's start with some biographical information -- where were you born and educated?
Ewan McGregor: I grew up in a small town called Crieff in Scotland. I left school when I was 16 and got a job working backstage. Occasionally, if there was a one-line part or a little acting role I would get that. The first thing I remember having a line in was a production of Pravda and from there I went to a one-year theater arts course in Kirkcaldy, Fife, which was a really solid theater training -- we would have to construct sets, make costumes, advertise the shows. We would all have an acting role and a production role. It was a really good theater arts course for people who were too young to get into drama school. After that, I went to London and spent three years at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. One term into my third year I got cast in Dennis Potter's series, "Lipstick on Your Collar". I left college to do that and I was off and running.
TS: Did you have any teachers who you felt were influential?
EM: Yes, Patsy Rodenberg. She's the only person I'd ever go to really. I went to her for a few movie roles when I wanted to do something with my voice, and I went to her another time when I was doing a play.
TS: I believe one of your uncles is also in the business.
EM: Yes. And the only other actor to come out of Crieff, to the best of my knowledge, is my uncleDenis Lawson. He's my mother's brother and was my inspiration once I decided to become an actor and has remained my inspiration throughout my life really.
TS: You worked with him on a play. Am I correct about that?
EM: After leaving drama school I spent seven years making movies and TV shows and I wanted to go back to the stage, but I was terrified after such a long break. I went to my Uncle Denis and I said, "Look, I really want to go back onstage, but I want you to direct me because I'll be terrified and I'd be happier if you were in the room." He found this great play that he'd done in the '60s entitled Little Malcolm and his Struggle Against the Eunuchs by David Halliwell. For the first time back on stage in so long it was a real kick up the ass. It was a great cast and such an amazing experience.
TS: Do you still feel a bit of terror going on the stage?
EM: Everybody's nervous to go onstage. I can't imagine it would be quite as exciting if you weren't. I think it's part of the process for me. I never walked onstage totally without some sort of nerves or adrenaline running. And I wouldn't want it any other way, really.
TS: Talk about the role of Henry in The Real Thing. What attracted you to it?
EM: Well, I met Sam Gold, the director, and I wanted to work with him. I knew him by his reputation and when I spent time with him, I felt like he was someone that I could work with and feel comfortable with. He sent me some scripts. After reading some things that were still in development, he sent me Stoppard's The Real Thing. Luckily for me, I suppose, I've never seen the play. I read it without any preconceptions. I just totally fell in love with the character of Henry. I love his mind and his language and all his relationships and observations about life and love. I'm absolutely drawn to him and I find every time I read it that there's another little gem in there that I discover for the first time. Right now I haven't got the bigger picture of it because we haven't even begun to rehearse, but I feel like it's an extraordinary play. It's very accessible. Stoppard is a very clever writer.
TS: Is it complicated as an artist yourself to play a character who is an artist, or is it easier?
EM: No, I don't think it's complicated to play artists because in a way we know what it feels like to sit in that place of creativity. I've played a lot of writers and I think it's because writers like to write about writing. And in this play, there's even discussion about what good writing is and why it's important -- the respect of words that writers have. It's Stoppard, a very brilliant writer, writing about his love of writing.
TS: Is there any kind of research or preparation that you have to do other than reading the text?
EM: I just threw myself into the text. I've been attached to the play for over a year, so I've been reading it and re-reading it. I'm familiar with it in a good way - more than I've ever been with a text before rehearsals. I'm feeling super-excited. And those horrible nightmares I'd experienced before rehearsals, I haven't experienced them at all. I absolutely think it's because I've had so much time to steep myself in the words. I've enjoyed it very much. Every time I open the script I am provoked into thinking about the things that Stoppard wants me to think about.
TS: Will you talk about Henry's relationship to the women in his life? What do you make of his relationship with his teenage daughter, Debbie?
EM: I think Henry's very close to Debbie. I think he absolutely adores her -- his only daughter. I think the scene where she leaves to go off with a young man is one of the tenderest, most beautifully written scenes I've ever read in my life. It's the scene that we all wish we had with our own daughters. I stopped off in London to have lunch with Tom Stoppard before coming back to America and I thanked him for it. I said, "I'm looking forward particularly to saying that speech every night." There's an absolute beauty in what he tells her about being in love - the way he opens up and tells her about what our lovers expect of us and what being a lover is about. It's quite incredible, open and intimate.
TS: I find Debbie very mature for her age. I expect she will be the window into the play for some of our school audiences.
EM: She's completely the child of an actor and a writer. She is absolutely the offspring of people who are very interested in themselves.
TS: What about Charlotte and Annie? They're very different women - don't you think?
EM: Yes, I think they are very different. Charlotte seems somewhat embittered by her relationship with Henry. I mean, she's had nine affairs. And she assumes that he is having affairs left, right and center, although he isn't until this one with Annie. Charlotte thinks that there is no such thing as true love or commitment, only bargains. She suggests that they're idiots for believing in love. And Henry doesn't believe that. He says, "It's the kind of idiocy I like." I assume that we've got to accept that it's not the real thing between Charlotte and Henry and what's happening between Henry and Annie is.
Misfits will likely not receive a movie spinoff, according to cast member Antonia Thomas.
There had been reports over the last year that creator Howard Overman was working on a film that involved characters from all five series. However it is understood that the project will now not happen because of a number of issues, one of which is said to be cast availability.
Antonia Thomas, the actress who played Alisha Daniels in the first three series, told RadioTimes.com that she believed the project had been shelved.
She said: “There was all sorts of talk about it. We read scripts and I think it’s now not happening. I haven’t heard anything. I think it’s just difficult to get everybody together. Everybody is doing such different things. Maybe they think everybody has moved on, I don’t know. You never say never but I have not heard anything of it of late. It was a really cool script, kind of getting the old gang back together, it could have been a lot of fun.”
Thomas can, however, be seen in the new Channel 4 comedy Scrotal Recall as Evie, the love interest of the central character, Dylan Witter, played by folk singer Johnny Flynn.
In the six-part comedy Dylan has just been diagnosed with the STD Chlamydia and has to track down all his former sexual partners to warn them that they may also be infected.
Thomas said that she would like to make another series of Scrotal Recall if the first is a success: “There is so much room for at least a second series and we would want to explore it more.”
Scrotal Recall starts on Channel 4 on Thursday 2nd October

Can someone at the very least leak this damn script?! SO MANY QUESTIONS. Mainly how Simon/Alisha would have been brought into the mix… :(
If you don't know about goddamn Ronna & Beverly (Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo), the PRIDE of Massachusetts, or New York City's finest Alan Alda aficionados Gil & George (Nick Kroll and John Mulaney), you need to educate yourself; you miserable, little shit: Ronna & Beverly / Too Much Tuna
Harry Potter star Emma Watson is the latest celebrity to defend feminism and gender equality. Here is why these teen idols have the potential to enact real change.
Bra-burning. Man-hating. Angry and unattractive. Such stereotypes have shadowed the women’s movement over the past few decades — and a slew of young, fashionable celebs are working to clarify feminism’s true definition.(yikes...)
Emma Watson, best known for playing Hermoine in the Harry Potter movie series, thrived in the face of adversity on the big screen, often providing the wisdom that helped her male cronies Harry and Ron stir up some much-needed courage. It seems Watson’s taken a page from her character: During her first big speech as a United Nations Women’s Goodwill Ambassador, she once again worked to inspire bravery in men. On Sunday, she announced the launch of the United Nations’ HeForShe campaign, which aims to get men involved in the global movement toward gender equality.
As Watson addressed the audience, she championed a new outlook for feminism. “I was appointed six months ago and the more I have spoken about feminism the more I have realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating,” she said. “If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop. Feminism, by definition, is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities.”
Watson is the latest to join a growing group of young celebrities who not only identify as feminists, but are working to make the label socially acceptable and representative of a necessary movement. In August, singer-songwriter and teen-icon Taylor Swift, who had previously claimed she was not a feminist, said she recently realized that being pro-women doesn’t make you anti-man. That same month, global pop sensation Beyoncé Knowles performed at the VMAs in front of a huge white sign that said “Feminist.” Her most recent album, Beyoncé, also features snippets from a TedX speech on feminism given by Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
The young stars’ feminist stances all seek to redefine the term after decades of unpopularity. World leaders like Hillary Clinton are also working toward the same goal. In June, the former Secretary of State said that she doesn’t believe there is “anything controversial” about being labeled a feminist. But pro-feminism messages from teen idols like Watson, Swift, and Knowles may reach a wider (and younger) audience. Feminism suffers from a reputation problem, say experts. With large social followings and huge fan bases, this trio just might make feminism cool again.
“In our celebrity focused culture, a young star like Emma Watson has the power to amplify important social messages,” says Katie Hood, a senior fellow at Duke University who teaches a “Women as Leaders” course and who recently became executive director of the anti-domestic violence One Love Foundation. “Having young celebrities and young voices can be a really compelling way to have young people change their futures.”
During the 1960s and ’70s, the women’s movement adopted an angry tone that turned many people off, says Janet Hanson. As a former Goldman Sachs VP and the founder of women’s networking group 85 Broads, which paired young women with established execs, Hanson’s been around both the old and new guard of female leaders. She says she watched the younger generation of leaders became confused about feminist principles — and men steered clear of joining the movement. “Women Against Feminism,” for example, tears apart the movement and cites countless reasons why feminism is bad. “The dictionary definition of feminism was hijacked,” says Hanson. “Feminism became synonymous with man-hating. The movement became bitter and cynical. It talked about what we don’t have as opposed to what we should have in an equal society.”(yikes )

Something to tell us? Ariana Grande spotted holding hands with Big Sean as they remain coy about their relationship status
Rosamund Pike burst on to the scene as Bond girl Miranda Frost in Die Another Day back in 2002, and has since explored roles as diverse as Jane in Pride and Prejudice and Queen Andromeda in Wrath of the Titans.
Her newest role may be her most eye-catching, playing Amy opposite Ben Affleck's Nick in David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl. She told Digital Spy that she relishes playing provocative characters, but why she has "to disappear for a while" after this movie.
The film centres around the disappearance of Amy Elliott-Dunne (Pike). Her husband Nick (Affleck) becomes the chief suspect, as the investigation begins to reveal unsavoury truths from the couple's past.
Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit and Emily Ratajkowski also feature in the film.
Gone Girl is released on October 3.
saw this on tumblr. it's an interview of Gillian Flynn about the movie. lol
He bought a sprawling Malibu mansion for his growing brood last year costing an eye-watering $4,800,000.
And, now Thor star Chris Hemsworth has forked out a reported $7 million acquiring Kooeloah, a Byron Bay retreat overlooking Seven Mile Beach where he and wife Elsa Pataky , daughter India and their twins Tristan and Sasha can escape.
The sprawling 4.2 hectare estate, which boasts three additional villas with eight bedrooms and eleven bathrooms in Broken Head, is the latest addition to the shrewd 31-year-old's property portfolio.
Lisa Ling has revealed that she once had a sugar daddy and became 'seduced' by the luxury lifestyle they lived together.
The married TV host, 41, said she started seeing a man called Tom, who was much older and wealthier than she was, in her early 30s and would travel the world with him. The mother-of-one, who is about to front a new show called This is Life with Lisa Ling, described how he would take her on yacht cruises in the Mediterranean and would go on shopping sprees with her in Rome.
Even though the former co-presenter of The View has travelled around the world as a reporter, she was taken to destinations new to her, and quickly became 'sucked into his vortex'.
She made the admission as part of a new series called which focuses on women who look to get into relationships with sugar daddies in a bid to get financial support. Writing for CNN, she said: 'I met "Tom", who was much older and more successful than me. 'We started dating in my early 30s at a time when my career had me traveling all over the world to report stories. I was neither looking for a relationship nor cared to be in one.' 'It started to become glaringly apparent that I was being seduced by a lifestyle. I was becoming a sugar baby. Or at least, that's how I felt'.
She said that before she met Tom, she developed a strong desire for self-sufficiently after growing up as a 'fiercely independent woman' and 'die-hard feminist'.
For her it was 'personal' as her parents had always fought over money-related issues during their divorce when she was just seven years old.
Tom liked her because of her 'independent spirit', but she thinks he quickly started to hope that she would give up her job so he could look after her. 'He was not at all a bad person, but increasingly, I was starting to feel owned and that I was losing myself,' she added.

Wendy Williams is either experiencing a memory lapse, or her shade is thicker than a palm tree.
“Inherent Vice” is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When P.I. Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin… well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the `60s, paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is one of those words going around, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s way too overused–except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists... Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp–all Thomas Pynchon.

What are your thoughts on the first video from one of the co-winners of Make Or Break: The Linda Perry Project?
On Compuserv, earlier this afternoon, Diana Gabaldon (author of Outlander book series) revealed that most of the voiceovers in the second half of season one will be Jamie’s. Rather than just Claire’s inner monologue, as we have been privy to so far, we will also get to hear things from Jamie’s perspective. The first book is entirely from Claire’s point of view, so it’ll be interesting how they stretch the second half of the show to incorporate Jamie’s voice, as well. Rather than being concerned about the liberties the writers are starting to take from the source material, Diana seems pleased with how everything is going so far, or at least leaves her comments vague enough that any sign of displeasure is vacant. She has seen the footage through the end of the first season already, so she has a good idea of the creative choices being made and where they will be leaving off the story to carry into the next season.
Diana Gabaldon's text from the forum:
“Don’t worry about it. I won’t tell you details or content of the second half, but I will tell you that most of the voiceovers are Jamie’s.
As in — there will be _two_ viewpoints going. Now that Jamie has a wife (and what a wife…) to take care of, he has reason to step out of the shadows.
(I’ve seen the completed episodes through 10, but I’ve seen the footage for all the episodes, and know what happens in them and how.)

Forget Where's Wally? The question music fans have been asking for the past 18 months is... where's Adele?
Well, the good news, we can reveal that she is working on new music.
A recording studio we visited this week were only too happy to boast about their latest client.
If not yet ready to record them, RAK Studios based in north west London, confirmed that the 26-year-old was writing new songs.
RAK Studios is where Adele recorded most of her debut album, 19.
Diane Warren, who according to the document attended the studios with Adele, has also written songs for Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera and Rihanna.
