You all know HBO's "Entourage," right? A great half-hour series starring Adrien Grenier as movie superstar Vinnie Chase. The story tracks Vinnie's personal life, the day-to-day grind for himself and his faithful entourage. Grenier is currently in Park City, UT for Sundance, where he's promoting "Teenage Paparazzo," a documentary about the actor's attempts to educate a 13-year-old aspiring celeb stalker on the realities of movie star life. Speaking with MTV at the festival, the actor revealed just how important his experiences on "Entourage" have been in shaping "Teenage Paparazzo."

"To me it was a logical progression," he said. "I spent six years in training as a celebrity on 'Entourage' playing Vince, portraying the celebrity lifestyle." There's something entertainingly meta about the idea of Grenier, who arguably achieved the bulk of his celebrity by way of that HBO series, exploring his celeb status by interacting with a would-be paparazzo.

While he's certainly best known for his roles in front of the camera, Ben Affleck is building quite the career behind the lens as well. In addition to recent starring roles in "State of Play" and "The Company Men," Affleck has also taken a stab at directing with 2007's "Gone Baby Gone" and the upcoming "The Town," which is currently in post-production.

But make no mistake — talented though he may be, Affleck's work as a director is anything but easy. During the Sundance Film Festival, Affleck told MTV News that he has a tendency to get emotional while directing movies. Read More...

Sundance is moving right along, as anyone who was watching MTV Movies Blog this past weekend knows very well. One of the flicks we're all very excited for here in the newsroom is "Buried," the Ryan Reynolds-driven -- it's a one-man show, and he's it -- story of a military contractor in Iraq who is kidnapped and buried alive with nothing more than a phone, a lighter and orders to raise $5 million for his captors.

The danger with Sundance movies of course is that they screen, get great reviews and then are never heard from again because no studio bothers to pick it up or, worse, picks it up and -- no pun intended -- buries it. Reynolds is a high-profile star of course, and no one really expected "Buried" to stay underground, but you never know with these things. The word coming out of Park City is that the $3 million budgeted movie was picked up by Lionsgate -- one of the first big acquisitions of the fest -- for $3.2 million. Read More...

Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart in 'The Runaways'Sex, drugs, rock n' roll and the girls from "Twilight"?!? Don't have too big a laugh though because Kristen Stewart and most especially Dakota Fanning rock the house with the best of them in "The Runaways," an electrifying if formulaic account of the brief rise and fall of the titular band.

Forget the executive producer credit for Joan Jett, the true telling credit for the film is where director Floria Sigismondi found her source material--lead singer Cherie Currie's memoir.

Indeed, "The Runaways" is owned and just about swallowed up by Fanning's riveting portrayal of the singer (not too dissimilar from the way Currie overwhelmed the group). First glimpsed as a teen literally transforming into a woman, this is the performance that seems sure to launch Fanning into a new thrilling phase of her career. From a sulking broodish David Bowie enthusiast to a howling rock goddess Fanning sells sells sells. I'd watch that band. Hells yeah. Read More...

Fans of "Arrested Development" have been waiting patiently for a movie version of the television series since the show's finale in 2006. If word on the street is to be believed, series creator Mitch Hurwitz is hard at work on the screenplay — it's just a matter of finishing the thing and getting the cast members on the same schedule.

There's at least one "Arrested Development" alumnus itching to get back into his manchild clothing and false limb — none other than Buster himself, actor Tony Hale. When MTV News spoke with the comedian at the Sundance Film Festival, Hale said that he and every other cast member from the series are eagerly awaiting the script.

"I actually talked to Mitch last week and he's writing it, and [the cast members] are all on board," said Hale. "We're all stoked to do it." Read More...

Even in the hills of Hollywood and the streets of the Sundance Film Festival, there's no escaping the pop culture juggernaut known simply as "Jersey Shore." The cast had their way with Michael Cera and James Franco even expressed his own curiosity in the reality series, leaving us to wonder who else in the acting business might have a soft spot for Snooki and her pals.

While at Sundance this weekend, MTV News spoke with "The Company Men" stars Ben Affleck and Rosemarie DeWitt about "Jersey Shore," a series that both of them admitted to being fascinated by. Read More...
