After years of endearing herself to us as the scene-stealer in such films as “The Hot Chick,” “Made in Translation” and “Waiting,” Anna Faris finally broke through with her first non-“Scary Movie” hit as a lead actress last summer. And since the film was such a pleasant surprise hit, we had to wonder: Does Faris have plans to play “The House Bunny” once again?
“I hope so,” the 32-year-old beauty told us of her desire to bring back sexy, ditzy, inspirational centerfold Shelley Darlingson. Read More...

Being a movie star sure seems easy. Free screenings, hanging out with other celebrities and parties at the Playboy Mansion are just part of a day in the life.
Well, this ascent onto the silver screen is something Tyson Ritter of the All-American Rejects is just getting used to. And let me tell you, after spending several hours on Ritter detail at the premiere of "The House Bunny" (which marks the head Reject's film debut) I found out firsthand that superstardom does take its toll ... on your patience and endurance, at least. But you would never know our little outing in Westwood, California, was Tyson's first premiere, as he handled the evening — Playboy Mansion and all — like a true veteran. Read More...
Sure, Anna Faris is the house bunny of the title but why talk to one fetching young actress when you can chat up three? And when the three are Katharine McPhee, Emma Stone, and Rumer Willis, well, it's best to just go with the flow. Two on one and three on one interviews tend to be the most difficult but this one was fun from the get go (read the interview here). Watch and enjoy as the ladies talk about "Playboy' covers, who's the most awkward, and who's playing Batman soon (?!?).
Over the years, I've been fortunate enough to interview some very funny people, many of whom (Sandler, Ferrell, Jack Black) we'll see Sunday at the MTV Movie Awards. But I can honestly say it's been a long time since anyone has made me laugh so hard as All-American Rejects singer Tyson Ritter.
"I did this hike for the first time like a month ago," the affable rock star grinned. "And I coughed up a f---ing lung."
The concept was simple: We'd meet Ritter at L.A.'s Runyon Canyon, a beautiful hiking area where Hollywood's best-looking people go to stay in shape and get each other's phone numbers. The 24-year-old is making his acting debut in the August flick "The House Bunny" (watch an exclusive clip from "The House Bunny" here), and what better way to get in movie-star shape than to take his dog for a healthy hike?

Yesterday we brought you an exclusive clip from the upcoming comedy "The House Bunny," which finds Anna Faris as a Playboy bunny booted from the mansion and forced to take up residence as House Mother for a local sorority. This week as part of our lead-up to the MTV Movie Awards on June 1st, we followed Faris and co-stars Emma Stone and Katharine McPhee to a local nail salon where the girls acted their most adorable and funny and cute. Yes, we love them. Watch the video below to see why.
In "The House Bunny," Anna Faris plays a Playboy Playmate who's tossed out of Hugh's mansion because she's hit the age ceiling (at a spry mid-twenties). With nowhere to go, she snags a gig as house mother for a local sorority where she proceeds to empower her female flock to become cool and hip and happening.
In the clip below, watch her in action along with co-star Emma Stone ("Superbad"), and then catch the film in theaters on August 22. And don't forget to tune in at 7:30pm EST on Sunday, June 1 to see the girls (which includes Katharine McPhee) walk the MTV Movie Awards red carpet.
Last year, Jennifer Grey — she who complained of a "possibly armed, certainly weird" intruder in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and proved that it truly is quite difficult to put Baby in a corner during "Dirty Dancing — pranced her way to victory on "Dancing With the Stars."
The latest cast for the ABC reality competition was announced on Monday night and again delivers a number of toe-tappers with cinematic credentials. From a crane-kicking New Jersey teen to the mother of a child whose inner monologue sounds suspiciously like Bruce Willis, "DWTS" will offer up a number of familiar faces to movie fans when the new season premieres on March 21. Read about them past the jump, and click the photo above for a trip down memory lane!
Lots of posters in the Twitter-Wood feed seemed to be shocked about one thing or another today, whether it was Michael Ian Black reacting to news of Natalie Portman's pregnancy or David Spade commenting on Amber Portwood's domestic battery charge.
Meanwhile, Paul Feig didn't seem shocked about his problems flying out of JFK yesterday so much as he was concerned with figuring out alternative means to get to London, Judd Apatow was afraid of how "Rabbit Hole" might make him feel, and Omar Doom likely frightened some people with the money he's been trying to use.

I try to keep Twitter-Wood chiefly focused on movies-related tweets, but today Quinton Aaron of "The Blind Side" post a pic from his first week shooting on "One Tree Hill" and Gillian Jacobs got up close and personal with her favorite bathroom door on the "Community" set, so certain allowances had to be made.
Outside of TV Land, Rose McGowan reacted to insinuations that people out there are dying from attempting to strap guns to their legs, while Danny DeVito offered advice about weed and pets, and Brian Lynch polled his followers with an important question related to Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson's breakup. See what he asked down below, along with what Kat Dennings has been dreaming about lately.

You definitely haven't seen Christian Serratos in the "Twilight" series wearing the kind of makeup she put on for a Black Keys video in her feed this week. She and Danny Masterson both sported some new looks and posted pics.
The big trending topic in international news today, though, was WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange getting granted bail in London, where Michael Moore stepped in and got personally involved. His reaction to the situation and a roundup of Golden Globe nomination chatter have been retweeted for you after the jump.
