Chris Colfer is leaving Glee

Glee actor Chris Colfer is leaving the Glee series this year. He said he was not aware of these plans but he agrees with them. Two other stars will follow in his footsteps: Lea Michele and Cory Monteith, Los Angeles Times reports.

The kids from Glee are about to graduate and move on. Kurt, Finn and Rachel, played by Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith and Lea Michele, will graduate in the Season 3 of the series, after the senior year. After this, they will say goodbye to Glee whether they like it or not.
“It’s definitely not my choice to leave the show, but I understand it’s the right choice”, Chris Colfer said to Awards Tracker on Thursday. He believes that it is the unicity of the show that needs the dynamics: “To have the character grow up and leave and graduate, it’s the right thing to do. I think it’s more of a big deal because not too many shows have ever done it before,” he explained.

The reality of the show did not hit only Colfer, but Michele as well. On late Wednesday she posted on her Twitter page a message saying “We always knew we’d graduate in real time. It’s all part of the plan and it’s all good! It’s going to make Season 3 amazing”

Last year, Chris Cofer took home an Emmy Award for Outstanding supporting actor in a comedy. This year, he has another Emmy nomination and has started several new projects that will expand his career. He signed a contract for a book and is going to write a pilot episode for the Disney Chanel. At only 21 years old, Colfer was voted one of the Time’s 100 most influential people. Now he is on tour for the summer.

Talking to TV Line he says that touring this years is a lot crazier than last year. “Take last year’s tour and multiply it by a thousand”. He explains that in 2011 the audience is a lot larger. “The biggest venue we played at last year was a 5,000-seat theater, and now we’re selling out 17,000-seat arenas.”

Colfer admits that he is overtired but says that the crowd at the concerts gives him plenty of energy to go on. “There’s nothing like walking into an arena and everyone screaming at you” he tells TV Line.

For the last season of Glee, Colfer unveils that Kurt’s plans involve Blaine.

Charlie Sheen: dead or alive?

Lately, there have been rumors about the death of several movie stars. Among them, Charlie Sheen and Wesley Snipes have been the most popular searches online. Is this true or false? Are the actors dead or alive? And if alive, why the hoax?

Charlie Sheen is alive, although we couldn’t say how well, if we think about the huge amount of bad luck he’s been carrying around lately. Charlie Sheen is not dead. The media kind of killed him. The rumors are not false 100 percent though. They refer to his character in Two And A Half Men, which apparently will be killed. Some reports claim that CBS is planning a script in which to exit Charlie’s character forever, in away that he may never come back. However, these rumors have not been confirmed by any of the CBS’s official staff. Either way, Charlie is dead; not Charlie Sheen, but his character, Charlie Harper.

In May, rumors about a replacement for Charlie Harper have begun to consolidate around a new character played by the charming sexy actor, Ashton Kutcher. After going through the portfolio of another famous actor, Hugh Grant, CBS has stopped its searches when Kutcher said he would play the part. After Grant turned off the offer, Kutcher was assigned the role. He gave the first hint on who is replacing Sheen in the show on his Twitter page. He wrote “what’s the square root of 6.25?” It is 2.5.
From the beginning of the replacement story, nobody had in mind to keep Charlie Harper alive as it is impossible that Harper would look, talk and act differently from Sheen. No one can play Charlie Harper but Charlie Sheen, they are one and the same. So the creator of the sitcom was prepared to create another character that would better emulate the new actor filling in the trio … well, the duo and a half, actually.

Charlie Sheen has not been the only celebrity victim of the recent death hoax. The same type of rumor hit actor Wesley Snipes, who is imprisoned since December last year for tax evasion. The rumor was dismissed by GossipCop, saying the actor has not been involved in any prison fights and is healthy and alive behind bars until 2013, when he will be free again.

Ryan Reynolds’ new love: Charlize Theron

Us Weekly found out, from a close source, that actors Ryan Reynolds and Charlize Theron are dating. According to the insider, the newly divorced Reynolds has been seeing his new beautiful blonde love for months now.

On Wednesday, a source told Us Weekly that the Green Lantern actor, Ryan Reynolds, has found a new love: actress Charlize Theron. He and the Sweet November star have been dating “for months” according to the source. But “they’re exclusive, and it’s very hush-hush.”

A witness tells the magazine that he saw the motorcycle of Ryan Reynolds, 34, in front of Charlize Theron’s house in the early hours of the morning. The two spent almost all day inside. Around 3 p.m. Ryan exited the home of the actress and soon after him, she left, too.

Until now, the couple hasn’t been caught on camera together. The source tells Us Weekly that the actors are both “career-focused, but not in a crazy way.” At this point there is no perspective of them showing-up together at events. “She won’t go to an event with him” the source continues, “that’s not her style”.

Ryan Reynolds recently divorced The Iron Man 2 actress Scarlet Johansson, 26. Earlier this month, the two Hollywood stars have signed the divorce papers. Their divorce has been made official by a judge in Los Angeles, California. The two agreed on separating in December 2010, citing “irreconcilable differences”. They issued a statement saying that “after long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage…We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it.  They got married in September 2008, holding a secret ceremony near Tofino, British Columbia, Canada. Despite the divorce, the two have an amicable relationship, according to another source who claims seeing them having dinner together at Little Dom’s in Los Angeles a few days ago.

On the other hand, last year, Charlize Theron has ended up her love story of 9 years with Stuart Townsend.

Arthur Christmas releases second trailer

The animated movie Arthur Christmas announces the release of another teaser on July 12. This is the second trailer. The first one was released on December 6, last year.

It seems that since the Harry Potter first movie of the franchise, more and more people are attracted to fairytales. The fantasy has gained more public than ever. The Lord Of The Rings, Harry Potter, Twilight, Pirates of the Caribbean are just a few movies – and the most popular – from the wide variety of fantasy films released in the last decade. More than that, the audience has grown for the animated movies as well. Avatar, which is a hybrid between real cast and animated cast is one of the most acclaimed projects. In an industry that asks more and more for animated characters and animated films, here comes Arthur Christmas!

The movie is set to answer the question that every parent has trouble answering to his offspring: “How does Santa Claus manage to deliver that many presents when he only has one night to do it?” Moms and dads often try to find an explanation that the child understands and accepts: Santa is supersonic, moving incredibly fast, he has elves doing the job for him, there are more Santas than one, he has the magic ability of stopping the passing of the time, and so on. Well, parents, this movie has all the answers. Due to a high-tech operation that is hidden beneath the North Pole, Santa can finish his job in no time. But don’t be fooled, the story is not only about that.

Arthur Christmas is due to premiere this year on November 23. The movie is directed by Barry Cook and is starring:
• James McAvoy, whom you can still see on the big screen in X-Men: First Class, in the role of Charles Xavier (future Doctor X)

Until November, watch the new trailer of Arthur Christmas below:

Zach Braff debuts as theater play writer

Former “Scurbs” star Zach Braff has decided to give theater a try. Not as an actor but as a play writer. A modest and humble Braff is talking about letting the ego aside and concentrate on the work. The actor has already tested other areas in showbiz and he was surprised by the outcomes.

Zach Braff is best known to us for his role in “Scrubs”. But playing one exponent of a new generation of doctors that sometimes proves to be better than the old generation is not all he can do. 

According to Associated Press, Braff is now trying his luck in the world of theater. His play is called “All New People” and it marks his debut as a play writer. He says that this work is “by far the most intimidating, humbling experience” that he had until now. He adds: “I think the biggest thing is not letting your ego get in the way of making the play better.” This has gained him the respect and admiration of Peter DuBois who is directing his play. “He’s an incredibly open, collaborative person” said DuBois, who also directed him in “Trust”.

“All New Men” is a dark comedy of 90 minutes. The play starts with introducing a man of 35 years of age, who is an air traffic controller and is determined to commit suicide. He is interrupted by a prostitute who was hired to cheer him up. After a while, the two are disturbed by a real estate agent who has problems with his visa and a firefighter who checks on homes. The cast of the play includes David Wilson Barnes, Justin Bartha and Krysten Ritter. Braff, 36, initially wrote the suicidal character’s role for himself, but he was convinced to let someone else play it and now he thinks it is a good idea. “To be in it, without the possibility of being able to step outside of it, wouldn’t have been good for the play.” Although he still says he would have been “amazing” in the role, he admits that “this is plenty challenging enough.”

As we said, this is not the first time Braff turns to something else than the movie industry. For example, he has won a Grammy Award for the soundtrack of “Garden State”. “I know nothing about writing or creating music, and yet I have a lot of musician friends. So they walk by my Grammy on my shelf and give it the evil eye” Braff laughs.

Mila Kunis asked out by a Marine Sgt. She says Yes

On Thursday, Friends With Benefits actress Mila Kunis has been asked out to a Marine Corps Ball by a Sergeant. The invite was made public through a clip uploaded on YouTube, in which he was asking her to be his date to the ball which will be held on November 18. What’s even more important is that the actress said “yes”, as FOX News announces.

Scott Moore, Sergeant of the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan posted the most unusual video clip on YouTube on Thursday. In it, he would ask actress Mila Kunis out for a date; and not just any date, a Marine Corps Ball which takes place in November. His post started with a brief presentation of himself: “Hey Mila, this is Sgt. Moore, but you can call me Scott.” The clip started with him wearing sunglasses, which he took off after the first words so his eyes could be caught on camera as well. As he was standing in the desert, he said: “I just want to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18 in Greenville, N.C., with yours truly.”

Moore asked the sexy star to “take a second” and “think about it”, then “get back to me”. Simple and honest. He even asked the public to help him “make it happen”, by posting a message below the clip.

Apparently not only the YouTube users helped, but the mass media as well. Fox News asked Kunis what her answer was. She said that she would do it, but her answer wasn’t very complimentary. She was interviewed along with Friends With Benefits co-star Justin Timberlake and he was very excited by her unusual invitation. He said he would make sure that it will happen. Kunis said she would do it for him and asked Timberlake if he would come as well. He said he wasn’t invited and that she has to do this “for the country”. With such a strong argument, not even Mila could say no. So she said “I’ll do it!” Hooray for Sgt. Moore!

Rob Lowe plays killer in Untouchable

Rob Lowe is set to play a 58-year-old character in the movie Untouchable, filming in Los Angeles, California. For the role he has had to make some changes in his appearance so if you think you’re going to see the sexy Lowe, you are going to extremely disappointed. Instead, you will see him older than you expect, in the role of a killer, jailed for murdering his wife. If you want to see him with a mustache, don’t miss this.

Rob Lowe is now 47 years old. But for the role that he was assigned in Untouchable, he will play a much older character. His hair will become grey, he’s going to grow a mustache and all in all, you’re going to see a version of what Rob Lowe may look like in ten years from now. The transformation takes up to nine hours to create. And this, every day of the shooting, according to People magazine.

We have been used to see the Parks and Recreation star in “good guy” roles, so watching him playing a killer is going to be interesting. This role will show another side of the actor, making him a more complete artist of the wide screen.

Untouchable is a Lifetime thriller about a man, Drew Peterson, a former Illinois police sergeant, who is accused of the murder of his third wife. Peterson is jailed since May 2009 for drowning Kathleen Savio. His fourth wife, who has been missing since October 2007 is thought to have been the victim of Peterson criminal actions as well, but for tnoe, there is no proof. It is not known what the movie put an accent on. The perspective might include some solutions to the situation, the trial, or a connection that this might one day happen in real life.

Until then, enjoy seeing Rob Lowe in the sitcom Parks and Recreation, airing on NBC.
