    Kaitlyn Dever
    When it comes to acting, Dever welcomes every new role and challenge with unabashed enthusiasm. The 17-year-old remembers being “super excited” when she landed her first movie role in “An American Girl: Chrissa Stands Strong,” after working in commercials. “I had never done a movie, and that was what I really wanted to do,” she says.
    And the thrill hasn't waned. Dever appears in the upcoming films “Laggies” and “Men, Women & Children” in addition to her gig on the ABC comedy “Last Man Standing.” Scheduling was a bit of a scramble, but more than worth it.. “Once I started doing it I didn't want to stop,” she gushes.
    “I've never learned so much in my life,” she says of working on Jason Reitman's “Men, Women & Children,” and adds that her role in “Laggies,” challenged her in new ways. “It brought out another side of me.”
    Dever previously made her mark in “Short Term 12” where she played Jayden, a troubled teen with a history of self-harm and abuse. “I wanted to make her very specific. It's so dramatic and so dark and I'm the opposite of dark. I'm always a happy person,” she adds with a laugh, “so it took a lot out of me to be dark and angry.”

    Zoe Kravitz
    Show business is a family affair for Kravitz, with an Emmy-nominated actress mother in Lisa Bonet, an actor-musician father in Lenny Kravitz and a groundbreaking actress grandmother in Roxie Roker. In a family so steeped in the entertainment industry, Kravitz knew from a young age that she wanted to act.
    “(Growing up) I was just around theatrical people a lot, and I used to put on shows for my grandparents when I was 5 or 6,” she says. “When people starting asking me about what I wanted to do to make a living, or go to college … I didn't know how to do anything else. It was the only choice for me.”
    She landed her debut role while still in high school, in the 2007 Catherine Zeta-Jones romantic comedy “No Reservations.” After a year studying in the acting conservatory at SUNY Purchase, she dropped out to pursue acting full time.
    After a string of successful independent films, Kravitz made the giant leap to “X-Men: First Class” in 2011 followed by “After Earth” in 2013 and “Divergent” in 2014 with its sequel “Insurgent” coming in 2015.
    She hasn't abandoned smaller films, though, appearing in independent dramas including “The Road Within” and “Good Kill” this year. Next year, in addition to the “Divergent” sequel, fans can see her in George Miller's “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
    For Kravitz, every role is both a welcome surprise and an opportunity to do something new.
    “You just adapt to the situations you're put in. Every time I get a big budget film I'm in shock. I definitely thought I was a better fit for independent films and theater, and it's all the same thing. Everything I do, even if it's an outlandish situation, I just want to try to make it as human and honest as possible.”

    Tye Sheridan
    Just a month shy of his 18th birthday, Sheridan, who made his film debut in the 2011 drama “The Tree of Life” opposite Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, has continued to branch out. Featuring mainly in dramas about family relationships, Sheridan is taking on a host of diverse roles in at least seven films this coming year.
    In 2012 he held his own sharing the screen with Matthew McConaughey in “Mud,” then joined Nicolas Cage earlier this year in “Joe.”
    Though young, the actor says he uses his past experiences to humanize his characters. “I don't have as much life experience, but I've always made it a point to try to find a place in my life where I was going through or feeling the same things as the characters I was playing.”
    This past summer Sheridan flipped the script and joined the cast of Paramount's “Scouts vs. Zombies.” He considered the role an opportunity to grow and expand on the experience he continually seeks. “Mainly I do work that inspires me, based off of interesting relationships or real-life drama. But this I would say is a different step for me in as far as it being a zombie apocalypse movie.”
    He can be seen in the mystery “Dark Places” with Charlize Theron. The Texas native will also appear with Benedict Cumberbatch in the war drama “The Yellow Birds,” and alongside Ewan McGregor in the spiritual “Last Days in the Desert.”
    With his busy filming schedule, Sheridan says he might spend his 18th birthday on the road, but looks forward to the next step it brings in his acting career. “I'm just really excited to rent a hotel room. Because, you know, you travel around so much and sometimes it's so inconvenient not to legally be able to do that.”

    Jenny Slate
    Slate's experience in comedy prepped her perfectly for her role in indie film “Obvious Child.” Balancing humor and honesty, she gave a breakout performance as a feminist comedian who finds herself pregnant after a one-night stand.
    The role was written for the “SNL” alum. It was originally made as a short film in 2009, which was the same year she landed her first TV gig on HBO's “Bored to Death.” Slate says despite the recent lack of complex female characters in films, she will keep pursuing those roles and forge relationships between viewers and her on-screen characters.
    “What I value the most is that connection with other people and the moment when you can make somebody's face break into a smile is very powerful,” Slate says.
    Slate credits “SCTV” legend John Candy and comediennes Carol Burnett and Madeline Kahn for inspiring her film aspirations. “I love doing comedy, it's in my nature to make people laugh. But there are also so many other parts of myself and places I can go emotionally.”
    The busy Slate can currently be seen on three TV shows: “Parks and Recreation,” “House of Lies” and “Married.” Her other acting credits include “The Lorax,” “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked” and “This Means War.”
    She also appeared in “The Longest Week” starring Jason Bateman, which was released on Sept. 5
    Slate says she will strive to keep her roles authentic. But for her it's all about timing. “This movie came at just the right time. I waited long enough to be in a movie — since I was 5 years old — and it happened at a time that I have a really good development of self.”

    Miles Teller
    Though he's been on the rise for some time in the film world, Teller didn't start out intending to be a movie star. “I wanted to be a sportscaster. I thought I was going to do a Bob Costas,” he says. But after taking part in his first high school play, “Footloose,” he was hooked.
    Fortuitously, he landed a part in 2011's “Footloose,” where he played the same character that got him into acting. Since playing the lead in “The Spectacular Now” in 2013, Teller has been on a busy run of movie gigs including “That Awkward Moment” and the “Divergent” franchise. Now he's earning raves for “Whiplash,” where he plays a struggling young jazz drummer.
    The 27-year-old actor says his favorite part of being in films is going to festivals, and he made his second Sundance appearance earlier this year with “Whiplash,” which won two top awards.
    “I think you have to have both,” he says of the opportunities available in both studio films and independent pics. “For me, I'm lucky to be in a place where I can pick a project. I like the big studio films; it's always good for your work to be seen.”
    Though he's not yet used to being recognized, and despite the popularity of his larger pics, he says he still gets remarks from fans about early work. “People still come up to me and say I love you in 'Rabbit Hole'. That film is really special to me. It was my first one.”
    Teller has also been cast in “Bleed for This,” a biopic on boxer Vinny Pazienza, and can next be seen reprising his “Divergent” role as Peter in “Insurgent,” and as Mr. Fantastic in the upcoming “Fantastic Four” reboot. He's also set to reteam with “Whiplash” director Damien Chazelle in the musical “La La Land.”

    New reports are popping up about the future of the Marvel universe, following the bombshell this evening that Robert Downey Jr. is set to appear as Iron Man in the upcoming Captain America 3, which may be based on the Civil War comic event. Indeed, a report by Cinema Blend indicates that Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Captain America 2 and 3, may take over from Joss Whedon as the directors of The Avengers following next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron. The report, which originally came from Badass Digest, notes that "if Marvel Studios gets its way, then they may be planning on bringing back the Russos for not only The Avengers 3 but also the inevitable Avengers 4. The report says that nothing is actually official yet, and that negotiations are on-going, but it's added that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige wants to lock them down for the future and have them be the successors to Joss Whedon."

    Marvel expressed a lot of faith in the Russo brothers even before Captain America 2 was released, signing them on for Captain America 3 a full three months before that movie hit the theaters. Additionally, new reports indicate Captain America 3 will tie heavily into the future of the MCU, including upcoming Avengers movies, making the Russos a good fit for this potential new role.

    Ever wanted to add Pusheen to a comment on Facebook? Now you can.

    Facebook is rolling out support to add stickers (a popular messaging feature) to comments on personal posts, as well as posts in groups and events. It does not appear that stickers can be posted on a page’s post. This works on both desktop and mobile.

    To do this, go to a post from a friend, a post in a group or a post in an event. Look for the smiley face to the right of the camera icon in the comment box, then decide which sticker best fits what you want to say. Just like in messages, you can’t have text accompanying the sticker.

    Facebook software engineer Bob Baldwin announced this in a post:


    Stickers have been a delightful way to communicate in messages, and I’m happy to announce we’re bringing them to comments across Facebook. Just tap the smiley face icon in the bottom-right of any comment field to pick a sticker to send. It’ll be available to all posts from people, in groups, and on events now. I think stickers will allow people to reply to a variety of posts in a more fun way than words alone. You can now easily show your excitement for a post with good news, cheer up a friend who’s feeling down, and express a variety of more nuanced reactions.

    They have just been cast opposite one another playing lovers in a new action drama.
    So perhaps their day out at Disneyland, California on Sunday was just a bonding exercise.
    But Shia LaBeouf and Kate Mara certainly had the crowds fooled, as they walked around arm-in-arm and canoodled with each other like a new couple in love.

    Shia, 28, is still known to be dating actress Mia Goth, 21, while Kate, 31, recently split from her actor boyfriend Max Minghella, 29, after four years of dating. Just recently, Shia and Kate were cast together as parents to a young boy in the post-apocalyptic film Man Down. Both actors were joined by a small child on their trip to Disneyland

    “Orange Is The New Black” creator Jenji Kohan is NOT a fan of Amazon’s new series “Transparent.”

    The “OITNB” creator slammed the critically acclaimed show’s “trans-affirmative action” policy in at the New Yorker Festival panel on LGBTQ TV, writes Vulture. "Transparent" follows the follows a transgender woman's transition, while "Orange Is The New Black" features a transgender character played by transgender actress Laverne Cox.

    “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway said that it’s important for her to have a trans woman writer on Season 2, and since she hasn’t been able to find one, she’ll train one herself from a pool of trans women short story writers.

    “We’re actually going to be helping make trans women TV writers by teaching them how to write,” Soloway said.

    Kohan responded, “I think great writers should write great shows, and I have trouble with, like, what you are in life shouldn’t automatically make you what you do in your art. It doesn’t necessarily translate.

    Soloway responded, “No matter what we did, we were always going to be otherizing Maura in some way. And in the same way where I wouldn’t want a man to say, ‘I can have a writers’ room full of men and we can write women just fine.’ I can’t say that I can create a show about a trans woman and not have a trans woman writing for me. It’s absolutely necessary, and it’s gonna change the show.”

    I don't think Jenji Kohan is coming off well here at all. Looks like some 'great writers can write about all characters bullshit'. I wonder how many of OITNB's writers are black, other WOC, trans etc. Glad Soloway is trying to create a diverse workplace

    China has blocked the sales of certain HK/Taiwan authors who have expressed support for the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. This comes after banning artists who have engaged in criminal behavior (unrelated maybe).

    Among those banned are prolific Taiwanese writer Giddens Ko, Chinese-American historian Yu Ying-shih, Hong Kong critic and TV host Leung Man-tao, Peking University law professor Zhang Qianfang and columnist Xu Zhiyuan. In the cases of Yu and Ko, the order went further and required the immediate removal of their books from shelves.

    The Chinese government has moved in other ways to minimize coverage within China of the Hong Kong situation. These include limiting access to Hong Kong newspaper websites, blocking Instagram, and preventing certain web search terms from showing any results.


    15hongkong-master675
    In the most intense confrontation since the early days of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protests, hundreds of police officers used pepper spray in the early hours of Wednesday to scatter hundreds of demonstrators who had barricaded a harbor-front road overnight. Some students alleged that the police had beaten some protesters.

    “We need more people to come out and use their power, but it’s hard because everyone needs to work,” said Kevin Sze, a 26-year-old social worker, as he sat on a camping chair near the barricades remaining around Admiralty. He was between jobs, and so had been able to stay at the protest site during the day, he said, adding, “No one wants to be arrested.”

    The protests have polarized Hong Kong society between supporters of demonstrators’ demands for electoral democracy and opponents who see the protests as disruptions to the city’s usual orderliness. Some Hong Kong politicians, echoing accusations in the Chinese Communist Party press, also suggest that the demonstrations are Western-inspired challenges to the Chinese government’s hold over the former British colony.

    Beijing regained sovereignty over Hong Kong in 1997, and it has promised residents that from 2017 they would have the right to vote for the city’s leader, or chief executive.

    But advocates of democracy argue that the electoral rules laid down by China’s legislature in late August would turn such elections into an empty ritual, because they require that candidates first win approval from at least half the members of a nomination committee dominated by groups and politicians loyal to Beijing.

    ---

    “I’ve been going to these mobile civic classes, and I’ve been telling them about Rosa Parks,” Audrey Eu, the chairwoman of the pro-democratic Civic Party who supports the sit-ins, said. “I always ask them, ‘How long do you think the Montgomery bus boycott lasted?' ”

    “A lot of people said, ‘A month?’ ‘Three months?' ” Ms. Yu added.“And I said no, and they finally said, ‘A year!’ So I think you have to prepare to have staying power.”

    International online journalistic organization WikiLeaks, best known for publishing classified media from anonymous sources, is looking to get into the fashion game.

    Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange is planning to launch a line of WikiLeaks branded merchandise in India in conjunction with local company Franchisee India. In a statement given to The Times of India, Icelandic WikiLeaks representative Olafur Vignir Sigurvinsson explained, “India is one of the countries where awareness about WikiLeaks is the highest and Julian is excited about the proposition. High-end fashion apparel, accessories, household goods, paper goods, that kind of stuff.”

    While WikiLeaks currently sells branded t-shirts online, this partnership will allow these goods to be sold in physical stores as well. With this move, Assange is hoping to replicate the success of Argentinian Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara’s brand (wtf). Products which are adorned with the image of the iconic revolutionary enjoy huge success worldwide, and Sigurvinsson hopes that the monetization of the WikiLeaks brand can help pay operational expenses for the group which currently relies primarily on donations.

    Jessica Simpson spends a reported $1 million a year on beauty treatments,including $1,000 a week on her eyelashes and $2,000 a month on cellulite treatments. Apparently, "her beauty regime includes weekly tans and monthly laser treatment to zap cellulite."



    "She loves eyelash extensions and has them touched up twice a week. A girl comes to her house and she pays her $500 each time.

    "Jessica's convinced she has cellulite and spends at least $2,000 a month on laser and light treatments smoothing out the back of her thighs and butt."

    Also she includes $230,000-a-year for an on-call hairstyling team and $50,000 on bust treatments.


    A source explained: "Jessica uses Natural Breast Enlargement Cream twice a day. She also has the upper part of her chest massaged twice a week to help."

    "Jess trains with Harley Pasternak three times a week at $1,500 per session."


    All this money seems unncessary considering Jessica's genetic makeup. She recently posted a photo of her daughter on her instagram. She shared a photo of Maxwell, who is 2, and captioned it "Don't hate me cause I'm beautiful #maxidrew", and she's a little beauty indeed.

    Amy Poehler is finally breaking her silence on her divorce from fellow comedian Will Arnett.

    “Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then tossing the whole thing up in the air,” the 43-year-old actress wrote in her new book “Yes Please” (via E! News). “The process of divorce is about loading that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands.”

    When you are a person going through a divorce you feel incredibly alone, yet you are constantly reminded by society of how frequently divorce happens and how common it has become. You aren’t allowed to feel special, but no one knows the specific ways you are in pain,” Amy added. “I am proud of how my ex-husband Will and I have been taking care of our children. I am beyond grateful he is their father, and I don’t think a 10-year marriage constitutes failure.”

    Amy also said that the divorce was “too sad” and “too personal” to discuss further. Will and Amy first separated back in 2012.

    “Yes Please” hits stores on October 28.

    You can listen to the interview here: (starts around the 37:10 mark) http://radio.nrk.no/serie/nitimen/MUHR01026314/27-09-2014#t=36m41s

    Pop star Ariana Grande, “X-Men” actor Nicholas Hoult and Katie Holmes are set to voice the leads in the Weinstein Company's animated family comedy “Underdogs,” it was announced Tuesday. The voice cast also includes Matthew Morrison (“Glee”), Eugenio Derbez (“Instructions Not Included”), John Leguizamo, Chazz Palminteri and “Saturday Night Live” stars Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan.

    Oscar-winning Argentinean filmmaker Juan Jose Campanella is directing the movie, which is being re-voiced in English before the Weinstein Company releases the film in both 2D and 3D on April 10, 2015. The U.S. cut of the film will also feature a script that has been reworked for a domestic audience.

    “Underdogs” follows Jake (Morrison) a shy, but talented, foosball player. His passion for the game is rivaled only by his love for free-spirited Laura (Grande). With her encouragement, he beats the town bully, Ace (Hoult), in a foosball game. But everything changes when Ace becomes the world's best soccer player and returns years later to turn their village into a new sports stadium. He starts to destroy everything and kidnaps Laura in the process. Just when it looks like all hope is lost, the toy figures from Jake's foosball table come to life. He and the players embark on a wild adventure to save Laura and reclaim their village. With the help of his team, his town, and a little bit of magic, Jake will try to save the day.

    “This talented cast takes our script and enhances it, with brilliant improvisation and wonderful chemistry. I'm so proud of these super talented actors and comedians,” said TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein.

    “Underdogs” was the winner of the Grand Prize Feature Award at this year's New York International Children's Film Festival.
