Theo James
Theo James predicted he would be labelled 'the new' Robert Pattinson.
The 'Divergent' star says comparisons with the 'Twilight Saga' hunk, 27, are "inevitable," but he would prefer to be in the same league as George Clooney and Brad Pitt.
Asked about the 'Water for Elephants' star, the 29-year-old actor joked: "I'd never heard that [comparison] before."
He added: "I'd heard Brad Pitt, Clooney, any legend... Inevitably there's going to be comparisons, we're both British, brown hair."
Meanwhile, his co-star Shailene Woodley doesn't mind being measured against 'The Hunger Games' star Jennifer ...

The 'Divergent' cast partied non-stop during filming.
The stars of the year's most-anticipated teen thriller - who include Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Zoë Kravitz and Miles Teller - got on so well that sleep-deprived neighbours had to call the cops on several occasions to break up their raucous post-filming gatherings in downtown Chicago.
Shailene said at a Cinema Society screening: "There was a lot of partying, and I think the cops did get called a few times. When you work long hours you want to hang out on Friday night and be loud, it's not really fair to the people next door when they'...

Theo James
Actor Theo James is hoping to see a gay action hero on the big screen.

The Brit stars in upcoming dystopian film Divergent, which features a lead female heroine played by Shailene Woodley.

In an interview with The Advocate magazine, James points out that action-packed films tend to only centre on male characters, a trend he hopes changes to show more diversity in the future - including parts that look past gender and sexuality.

When asked if he thinks a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) hero will ever make it to the big screen, he says, "It's very hard to tell, because today the...

Charlie Hunnam
With Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam out of Fifty Shades of Grey, numerous names have come up as possible replacements to play the dominant and sadistic Christian Grey.

Hunnam pulled out of the role just weeks before the planned start of filming, with reps for Universal Pictures releasing a statement that he quit because his "intense television schedule" conflicted with his preparations for the project.

Insiders have claimed that an unknown star would be cast into the role to avoid any fallout, but several other names have been tied to the part.

First up is Aaron Taylor-Johnson. John...

'Golden Boy' Review: More Bite Than Bark

February 27th, 2013 10:10am EST
Golden Boy
CBS’s mid-season show, “Golden Boy,” a crime drama about a brash cop's turbulent journey to become the youngest police commissioner in New York City history, doesn’t reinvent the shield, but it does offer more promise than puffery.  

This is not another paint-by-numbers procedural that CBS has mass-produced for the past decade. “Golden Boy” follows the impressive career of Walter Clark, played with a beguiling intensity by Theo James.  After a heroic firefight that saves dozens of lives, Clark is promoted to homicide detective, and has to navigate the murky politics of police work, especia...
