Sometimes, when you're working on a movie set with the likes of Russell Crowe and Anthony Hopkins, it helps to have a friend around to freak out with.
Emma Watson and Logan Lerman found that to be very true on the set of "Noah," director Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic, which the pair is currently shooting.
During the MTV First for "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," they shared their experiences on the set of "Noah" and their relief to see a familiar face.
This year has been a good year for Fran Kranz. He starred in "Much Ado About Nothing," one of the most anticipated and well-received movies at the Toronto International Film Festival. He acted alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman and Andrew Garfield in Mike Nichols' Broadway revival of "Death of a Salesman." And "The Cabin in the Woods" finally hit theaters, after a long and frustrating wait (it's now available on DVD and Blu-ray).
Kranz says he had a great time playing wise stoner Marty. "There was something truthful and juicy that you could sink your teeth into and look at him as a three-dimensional, real human being."
But when he first read the script, he had a decidedly negative reaction, but it wasn't that he didn't like it. "It was so funny, far funnier than your typical horror film," he said. "And a lot of horror films have a lot of good humor, but this was like a great comedy on its own."
How does an exclusive 30-minute interview with Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Ezra Miller, the stars of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," sound? Pretty good, right? Well, you are in the right place to see exactly that.
But before the interview starts, tune into MTV at 7:56 p.m. ET to catch an exclusive clip from the film, presented by Emma, Ezra, and Logan.
When that's over, stay right here to find out all of the answers to your questions and see the young cast squirm in the hot seat.
Though "Horns" on the surface might seem similar to "Harry Potter"—it's a fantasy novel that tells the story of a young man who discovers he has supernatural powers—it's anything but. That's why Daniel Radcliffe chose to tackle the project when the opportunity arose earlier this year: he wanted to show he shouldn't be pigeonholed.
"I always liked the idea that ['Hills Have Eyes' director] Alex [Aja] and I are in kind of similar places, where everybody is very willing to put us both in boxes and assume that there are certain things we do and certain things we don't want to do," Radcliffe said. "I think we're both very keen to flex new muscles, both of us."
"The Cabin in the Woods," the movie that everyone loved but was afraid to talk about, hits Blu-ray and DVD today, and to celebrate, we spoke with the director, Drew Goddard, about his experiences making the meta horror movie and the battle to get it into theaters.
Goddard shared how he looks back on the film nearly half a year after its theatrical release and what he plans for the near future. We also learned which Boyz II Men song he prefers.

There are a few things you might notice about Chis Evans' role in the indie crime drama, "The Iceman." The killer he pays in the film is definitely not a hero like Captain America, but it's his hair that might strike you first.
When MTV News spoke with the first Avenger at the Toronto International Film Festival, the topic of the hair came up immediately. Unfortunately, the 70s era locks are not Evans'.
"It's a great wig, though," Evans said. "Isn't it?"
Until this year's Sundance, Mary Elizabeth Winstead was mostly known for roles in genre films like "The Thing," "Scott Pilgrim," and "Death Proof," but then she made "Smashed," which recently traveled up to the Toronto International Film Festival to collect even more raves.
But in "Smashed," Winstead plays one half of an alcoholic couple that decides to kick the habit, just runs into more troubles from there, and she's earned raves for it.
MTV News caught up with Winstead in Toronto, where she talked about watching the film develop, how to laugh at alcoholism, and the reactions from real addicts.
Joss Whedon tried something a little new with his take of William Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing." Instead of going on a planned trip to Italy after wrapping "The Avengers," he decided to bring together some of his closest friends to film an adaptation of the classic comedy. They finished shooting the movie in 12 days last year, and Whedon finally debuted it at the Toronto International Film Festival this week where it met with rave reviews.
MTV News had the chance to catch up with Whedon while he was promoting the movie and ask him about his experience directing a project written by the Bard. Since Whedon is so well known for his own unique writing style, we assumed he would have had some difficult working with a script he didn't pen. It turns out that's not entirely the case.
"When you're writing the words, you're looking for something from the audience. You're looking for a reaction. And you're doing the same thing when you're directing, you're doing the same thing when you're directing; you're just trying to connect. To have somebody else write the words is fine."
With "The Twilight Saga" wrapped and "Cali" out of the picture, Hollywood is Kristen Stewart's metaphoric oyster.
The actress has been attached to a couple of projects recently like the potential "Snow White and the Huntsman" sequel and Scott Cooper's take on "Lie Down in the Darkness," but neither project is officially confirmed. MTV News recently caught up with Stewart at the Toronto International Film Festival where she said she's enjoying not knowing what she'll be up to over the next few years.
"It's been a little while since I haven't had stuff mapped out, so it's nice," she said. "I'm in a good place to choose."
Woody Harrelson wants to go full drunk in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."
MTV News had the chance to catch up with Harrelson at the Toronto International Film Festival and he said that he's going to shoot "The Hunger Games" sequel in little more than a week. Harrelson's had the chance to take a "gander" at the script for the project and said that it has his stamp of approval -- though it could always use more alcohol for his character Haymitch.
"It's a really good script, really strong script, so I feel good about that. That was the big question mark, since there was so little time to get that script together," he said.
