FROM MTV.COM According to the Internet, Zac Efron will have a role in the upcoming "The Hangover 2." However, according to the film's star, Justin Bartha, you shouldn't believe everything the Internet tells you — after all, if you did, you'd also be under the impression that Robert Pattinson might be joining Efron in the sequel to last year's hit comedy.
"Other people have said that, and we were at the Critics' Choice Awards the other day and I'll quote [director] Todd Phillips when someone else asked [if Zac Efron is in the film] — he said, 'IMDB is not the Wall Street Journal. It is run by a 15-year-old boy in Tampa. So be careful what you read,' "Bartha told MTV News on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday.

Ginormous red carpets are kind of like a round of speed dating. That is if the pool of your potential dates are those that keep US Weekly in business. Heather Graham gives you a once over and then makes a face as if she ate some sour milk as she saunters past. George Lucas pauses, thinks it over, and decides nah, why make me the happiest lad on the carpet (and I actually liked Jar Jar)? On your end, it's a series of split second bizarre calculations your mind is not meant to make. For instance Kenneth Branagh and Joseph Gordon-Levitt walk up to you at the same time but you can only talk to one (some skilled practitioners of the red carpet arts would say grab both but perhaps I'm not there yet), right? What do you do?
Yesterday was my second Globes red carpet. When we arrived I was thrilled to see we had a lovely position next to the giant "Extra" platform (we'll see in the weeks to come if some of that Mario Lopez je ne sais quoi rubbed off on me) and a USA Today reporter who literally almost poked Penelope Cruz's eye out with her umbrella.

For all of the spectacle in last night's Golden Globe Awards festivities, the tragic events in Haiti remained on everybody's mind. The collected attendees all had something to say, expressing their thoughts on the red carpet, during the show and at the various after-parties.
In the video below, "Tron Legacy" star Olivia Wilde details a celebrity fashion auction of Golden Globes attire being held to aid in the Haiti relief efforts.
Quentin Tarantino walked the red carpet at the 2010 Golden Globe Awards last night to support his latest contender, "Inglourious Basterds." What if things had gone differently though? What if the filmmaker had helmed one of the other nominees? Perhaps Best Picture and Best Director winner "Avatar"?
"I'm not James Cameron, I could never think like that," he told MTV's Josh Horowitz. "I don't think he could think like me either." Read More...
Spoilers ahead, for those who haven't seen "Avatar."
Sigourney Weaver's character dies in the late stages of the movie, so why would she be back for the sequel? We don't know, and she can't say anything.
"It's science fiction. anything can happen." That's what she told MTV's Josh Horowitz on the 2010 Golden Globe Awards red carpet last night. "If you look at the footage, I don't really... I go somewhere, right?" Read More...
"Tron Legacy" star Olivia Wilde stopped to chat with MTV's Josh Horowitz last night on the red carpet at the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. She told us that while she's thrilled to be a part of the classic Disney franchise, she just wants to get the job done without spoiling anything.
"I've seen tiny bits. I don't want to ruin it for myself. But everyone's so excited and everyone's so pleased with the results. I couldn't be happier." Read More...
In the twilight months of 2009, "Scream 4" went from fan fantasy to in-development reality. Series creator Kevin Williamson almost lost his star, Neve Campbell. He later told us, in November, that the writing of the sequel "going good." Just a month later, Campbell said pretty much the same thing, revealing that shooting would get underway in April '10 and that she was "pretty sure" director Wes Craven would be back to direct.
There's never been any official confirmation in that regard. So tonight on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards, MTV's Josh Horowitz hit up happy couple and "Scream" stars David Arquette and Courteney Cox for the latest word on Craven and all things "Scream"...
"Yes, Wes [Craven] is in, Neve [Campbell] is in, everyone is in," Arquette said. The lovely Cox didn't sound as sure however. Read More...

FROM MTV.COM: Success in one entertainment sphere is not always an indication of success in another, a fact that could not be more true when it comes to hosting an awards show. Jon Stewart continues to be a genius behind his "Daily Show" news desk but was kind of a stinker guiding the Oscars telecast. David Letterman? The reigning king of crotchety late-night TV and one of the worst Oscar hosts in history. And let's not even talk about the five reality-show hosts who emceed the Emmys last year.
This year's Golden Globes, airing Sunday night, will be hosted by Ricky Gervais. While his creation of two hit TV shows — "The Office" and "Extras" — and long history as a stand-up comic isn't proof that he'll do a gut-busting job, his appearances at other awards show are. In fact, Gervais' performances at the past two Emmys shows are basically what got him the gig.
