De Uglifying Betty!

Brace yourself Ugly Betty fans. There's a big change coming this season! The execs behind Betty have finally decided to give America Ferrera's character a real makeover! And they're taking their job pretty seriously. According to reports, ABC has already held focus groups to get viewer opinions on Betty's new look. And there's two to choose from. The focus groups are watching clips from early in the season ,which feature Betty in her new role as Mode's associate features editor. And the test audiences have to choose if they like Betty in a short-sleeved black dress or a Chanel-looking pink suit. They also need to comment on her new hair, the better makeup, and no more crazy eyebrows. And, of course, opinions on her infamous braces being removed or not. One of the focus group members commented that “She looks a lot classier, but she’s still far from perfect.” What do U think? Is it too soon to give Betty a makeover or about time?

Major Twilight Recast!

Summit Entertainment has announced that fan favorite Rachelle Lefevre will NOT be returning for the third installment of the Twilight series as Victoria. Instead, she will be replaced with Bryce Dallas Howard. The studio sites scheduling conflicts as the reason for the change and released a brief statement concerning the new Victoria in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Are we sure it wasn't money????? Says Summit: “Rachelle brought “Victoria” to great screen life and Bryce will bring a new dimension to the character. The franchise is lucky to have such a talented actress as Bryce coming in to fill the role." How do U feel about the recast Twilighters? Sad? Indifferent? And how many of you are bummed that this post wasn't about Kristen Stewart getting the boot? We're a little disappointed by that ourselves!

Your First Look At The Volturi!!!!

Twilight diehards just can't seem to get enough of anything New Moon-related. And neither can we! As we've mentioned before, several new cast members have already been added to the sequel. Such as former model Noot Seear who'll be playing villianess Volturi vampire Heidi. And British hottie Jamie Campbell-Bower who's playing the volatile and angry Volturi ruler Caius. And check out the newly released Volturi shot above. The image has been making its way around the Internets and is said to be unaltered.

Young Love

The next generation of power couples is slowly starting to take form! Pint-size Hollywood golden kids Dakota Fanning and Freddie Highmore (Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Finding Neverland), were seen having a dinner date on Saturday night in Beverly Hills. Even at their young ages (Dakota is 15; Freddie, 17), they have already had the kind of careers most people only dream of (her more so than him - ha!).

Are You Hot Enough To Work For American Apparel?

Skeazebag/American Apparel CEO Dov Charney is up to his piggy antics again: this time, he's reportedly laying off employees who he deems damaging to the "AA aesthetic." In other words, ugly people. American Apparel's "aesthetic" is essentially retro-amateur porn, but with shiny spandex in place of boobs and bush. According to an American Apparel employee, each week the company holds worldwide conference calls for store managers to discuss sales, displays, etc. Recently, however, the calls took a less professional turn when Charney "went on a huge tirade and made stores that weren't doing so well send in group photos," so that he could judge who needed to be fired and who was sexy enough to stay on. The employee goes on to say that his comments about the employee's appearances were "childish," and "insulting." There is fear among the managers that if they don't adhere to his rules, they, too, will be fired. Yikes! This is gross, but not surprising. Charney's no stranger to controversy, and with his pervy ways, he kind of invites it. The American Apparel frontman has been the subject of multiple sexual harrassment lawsuits and allegations from both employees and acquaintances, and openly acknowledges that he encourages employees to be sexy, will freely sleep with employees, and he even loves sluts! Klassy!

Heigl's A Star! The Ugly Truth Opens Big

Whether we like it or not, Katherine Heigl is a proven movie star! Heigl's latest flick, The Ugly Truth, opened at a surprising $10 million on Friday, and is expected to earn a solid $25-$30 mil by the weekend's close! But bitch probs won't be #1! Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer's 3-D animated G-Force is projected to earn over $30 million during its opening weekend, securing the PG film the #1 spot. Sadly, the over-promoted horror flick Orphan bombed big time this weekend, with the scary movie only expected to take in $12-$15 million at the box office. Too bad!

Harry Potter Heads To The Hood

Making a major motion picture is pretty damn expensive, so sometimes it is necessary to rinse and reuse some sets from other films. We've learned that Harry Potter is gonna cook up some of his magic in a castle currently being used in the Russell Crowe medieval pic, Robin Hood. The castle is part of an entire set director Ridley Scott had constructed specifically for the HoodHarry Potter & The Deadly Hallows, will take residence there once the other movie is wrapped. Way to recycle!

The Strangers Get A Sequel

The story is completely under wraps, but it has been confirmed that the horror flick, The Strangers, will be getting a sequel. The script is going to be penned by the original's screenwriter/ director Bryan Bertino. Production is suppose to start in the fall, but with who, we don't know. It better explain what the hell went down with Liv Tyler. Is her character wearing a potato sack on her face or what? Do U want to see a Strangers sequel?

'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows': What We Know So Far

Even as Potterheads eagerly nestle into their seats in air-conditioned multiplexes around the globe to view, at long last, 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,' they may notice a pang of uneasiness in the pit of their Hogwarts-sweater-vest-covered bellies. And it's not (necessarily) because they're eating the theater nachos. No, it's because after these devoted fans have taken in the life-and-death drama and budding teen romance of the sixth installment in the magical franchise they'll have to wait 16 long months for their next boy wizard fix -- when the first part (that's right, there are two) of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,' J.K. Rowling's explosive finale to the 'Potter' saga, hits theaters. But don't go into withdrawal just yet. With filming already underway on the two-part conclusion, we've scoured the Interwebs to bring you the most up-to-date news (and a couple of rumors) about the 'Deathly Hallows' movies. So stop shaking, see what's been revealed about 'Hallows' thus far, then chime in with anything you've heard through the 'Potter' grapevine. (WARNING: Spoilers may lie ahead.) -- By Tom DiChiara & Alicia Roda Double Your Pleasure Like we said before, rather than try to condense a whole lot of plot (Rowling's book runs a whopping 784 pages -- and weights 2.4 pounds in hardcover) into one 2.5-hour movie, 'Deathly Hallows' has been split into two films. With stalwart fans currently decrying all the plot points left out of 'Half-Blood Prince,' this move is looking smarter every day. So both fans and Warner Bros.' wallet win. Hooray! 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I' is set to open Nov. 19, 2010, with 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II' slated to follow quick suit with a July 15, 2011, bow. The Boys Are Back In addition to the entire cast, the 'Half-Blood Prince' director-writer team of David Yates and Steve Kloves is returning for both installments of 'Deathly Hallows.' Cloves has acted as scribe on every 'Potter' film except 'Order of the Phoenix,' while Yates has directed both 'Phoenix' and 'Prince.' So aside from J.K. Rowling -- and probably some fans -- these guys know the Potterverse better than anyone, and are thus equipped to give Harry and co. the grand swan song they deserve. The End Is Nighy After complaining that he's "the only British actor who hasn't been in 'Harry Potter,'" Bill Nighy (you know, hip-swiveling singer Billy Mack from 'Love Actually' and face-tentacled Davy Jones from 'Pirates of the Caribbean') has finally landed a part in 'Hallows.' Nighy recently told 'Potter' fan site The Leaky Cauldron: "I don't think I'm allowed to say it, but I'm going to be in the next 'Harry Potter' film. I won't say which character, but he's a goodie. I just got the gig." With Nighy mum on his on-screen alter-ego, rampant speculation has pegged him as the new Minister of Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour. Music to Our Ears Legendary composer John Williams, who scored the first three 'Harry Potter' films (and is responsible for that catchy title music), is rumored to be returning as composer for 'The Deathly Hallows: Part II.' Our two cents: If the guy who scored 'Star Wars' and 'Indiana Jones' returns for Potter's final chapter, we'll be dancing in the aisles. The Final Showdown No shocker here. The final two films will build to that climactic good-vs.-evil, Harry-vs.-Voldemort duel to the death fans have been itching for since the books first hit shelves. Of course, there's that whole matter of Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) hunting down those hard-to-come-by Horcruxes that contain the splintered pieces of You Know Who's vile soul. So, basically, there's a ton of chilling, enthralling, eye-popping ground -- not to mention that much-anticipated Hermione-Ron liplock -- to be covered before the moment of truth. And we can't wait to savor every second of it.

On The Set Of 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hollows!!!

The last movie and book in the famous Harry Potter series, follows the trio Harry, Ron and Hermoine ( played by Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson) as they search for items containing pieces of Lord Voldemorts soul, a job Professor Dumbledore left them to do before his death in the book “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince”. The trio is on the run from the ministry of magic which has been infiltrated by Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters. Harry Potter has a bounty on his head, Hermoine is wanted for not appearing for questioning as all wizards must prove their lineage or it is said the muggles “stole” magic. Last of all Ron is supposed to be sick with a contagious disease that gives him sores all over his body and gives him a ghoulish look. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is set for a date of July 2010. I'M SOOOOOO EXITED!!

Quote Of The Day

“If you spent like a proper amount of time with me, you would probably wonder if I was on drugs. I'm not. I'm just incredibly hyperactive. Manic. [At the Harry Potter premiere in London] My God! I was just this kind of BEAST that had been UNLEASHED onto the red carpet!” - Daniel Radcliffe

WOOT WOOT GO HARRY!!!

Well, Harry Potter is certainly proving to be quite the monster hit! The film earned $58.4 million in the U.S. box office on its first full day of domestic release. That placed the film second for a Wednesday release after Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen's debut of $62 million. The Dark Knight is still the number one Wednesday opener of all time with $67.2 million.

Kristen Stewart And Dakota Fanning Make Us Realize How Cool The Seventies Were

In the 70s girls wore leather pants and giant platform boots. Now they wear sweatpants and Crocs. Plus the 70s didn’t have AIDS or John Mayer.Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning plugged away on set yesterday for their new movie, “The Runaways.” The two were filming in Los Angeles when Dakota took a big fall. Dakota was a sport about it, given her huge boots, we’re surprised she didn’t fall more!What do you think of their 70’s style?

MJ Dominates The Weeklies

As expected, all the celeb magazine paid tribute to the King of Pop this week. He is the cover story of practically every tabloid and magazine out on stands. Even Uu Weekly broke their Jon & Kate habit! However, some are more respectful than others. In fact, we refuse to show the cover of this week's OK Magazine, as we think the use of Michael Jackson's "final photograph" is disgusting and wrong.

Hilary Duff Does Gossip Girl!

The Duffster is soon to face some major drama! Hilary Duff has signed on to appear in several episodes of CW's Gossip Girl this coming season!!!! We guess this is the result of NBC passing on her ill-conceived comedy pilot Barely Legal. Hilary will play Olivia Burke, a movie star who enrolls at NYU in search of a traditional college experience and ends up rooming with Vanessa (Jessica Szohr). Duff will debut in this season's fourth episode, to air Oct. 5.
