Kristen Stewart
Kristen Stewart revealed she has shed the long orange hair she was sporting earlier this year for a film role.

The Twilight star is now rocking a choppy, short hairdo with longer locks in front swept to the side. She showed off the new 'do at the Chanel Catwalk Show during Paris Fashion Week. She was wearing a white two-piece outfit that featured drawstring pants with see-through sections and billowing legs. Stewart topped off the all-white look with heels.

The orange highlights remain for now, but who knows when Stewart's tastes will change once again?

Stewart was first spotted with t...

Chris Hemsworth & Charlize Theron On Board For 'Huntsman,' Krist
Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron have signed on the sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman" titled "The Huntsman," while Kristen Stewart will not return to the film franchise.

Stewart made headlines last summer after it was revealed she and the film's director, Rupert Sanders, had an affair. At the time, she was dating her "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson, while Sanders was married to model Liberty Ross. Both couples have since parted ways.

In the first film, Hemsworth played the Huntsman, Theron played the villain Ravenna, and Stewart was Snow White.

According to the Hollywood Rep...

April 23rd, 2012 11:47am EDT
William Sadler
If performance prowess is measured in amount of diverse work created, then actor William Sadler is without question one of the greats. His amazing characters (Bill & Ted’s Grim Reaper anyone?!), memorable movie moments (a little naked martial arts via the opening of "Die Hard 2!") and sheer quantity of notable credits ("The Shawshank Redemption" – need I say more?) has made him one of the most recognizable faces in film and TV for over two decades. Plus having worked with the likes of Renny Harlin, Walter Hill, David Nutter, Bill Condon and even Frank Darabont (three times no less!) has s...

Q&A: Sam Witwer Back For More 'Being Human'

January 11th, 2012 11:10am EST
Sam Witwer
You've got to keep your eye on Sam Witwer.

As the vampire Aidan on SyFy's Being Human, he could take a bite out of you if he wanted. But offscreen, the Battlestar Galactica veteran's wit as is sharp as his alter-ego's fangs. He's also a man of multiple talents, not only an actor but a musician.

As Being Human starts its second season on January 16, Sam sat down with me to discuss what's next for his character, what he's up to when the cameras aren't rolling, and if being a sci-fi success also allows him to be a fanboy.

"It's interesting," he said of coming back for a sophomore run. "We a...

Evil Dead 2
If you don't know of makeup effects master Greg Nicotero, you’ve probably been living under a foam latex rock.

Not to mention that Greg is currently both effects makeup department hea...

AMC's Darabont Free Season 2 Premiere Emotionally Empty - My Goodbye To "The Walking Dead"

October 17th, 2011 8:10pm EDT
The Walking Dead
I must admit the only reason I got into "The Walking Dead" in the first place was the creative team of filmmaker Frank Darabont and KNB effects maestro Greg Nicotero. (Sorry AMC – you’re not that great on your own!) Being a movie guy all the way who doesn’t watch much TV, I was interested to see if the dynamic duo could convert a cinema lover like me to the boob tube week after week. The pilot episode was some of the best TV I’ve ever seen, not to mention pure Darabont, with zombie fun but also a distinctively dramatic and emotional through line you can only get with a director of that c...

31 Days Of Horror: 'The Walking Dead' (2010)

October 22nd, 2010 10:12am EDT
Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, future maniac
When it was announced that Frank Darabont would be heading up an adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s universally acclaimed comic book series The Walking Dead for AMC, it automatically set the bar unbelievably high. Kirkman’s comic is a lone light of quality in the overexposed zombie genre—bleak and emotionally intense. Darabont directed The Shawshank Redemption, the movie that everyone’s mother just loves, but also won some cult clout with his morbid adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist. And of course, AMC is the reigning king of the mountain for prime-time drama (and movies you’ve seen a milli...
