NOOOOOOOOOO!!! The worst part of this isn’t the fact he won’t be gracing my television screen on a weekly basis, but rather I’m no longer going to bump into Colton Haynes randomly on the streets of Vancouver or at the gym. Who am I going to stalk now ;)
On last night’s episode of Arrow, you saw Roy Harper aka Arsenal leaving Starling City. If you were hoping it was simply a ruse, you’re out of luck. He’s leaving The CW show as a series regular. But since his character wasn’t killed off, the door is open for him to return. He’s scheduled to make one more appearance this season.
“Colton will not be returning to the show as a series regular in Season 4, but will appear in one additional episode this season,” a rep confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. “Like all characters that exist in this universe, there will always be the potential for him return moving forward.”
Betsy Braddock, better known as Psylocke, is a female mutant with telepathy and telekinesis powers who later becomes a ninja assassin in the X-Men comic books. She previously appeared in 2006′s X-Men: The Last Stand, but at that time she had the ability to teleport herself through areas of shadow and was played by Mei Melancon.
Bryan Singer revealed via Instagram he’s bringing the character back but has chosen another actress to portray her for X:Men Apocalypse. Find out who below.
Praise baby Jesus!!! With Jessica Lange not taking part in American Horror Story: Hotel, I don’t think I could’ve handled a Sarah Paulson-less season of the FX horror series. Could you? Thankfully, she’s booked a hotel reservation for the fifth season.
“My focus will always be on American Horror Story for as long as he’ll have me,” Paulson told The Hollywood Reporter in December, ahead of her American Crime Story casting. “I have never felt so completely seen by another director or producer or person before in terms of his willingness time and time again to give me something to do that I didn’t even think I was capable of doing. I don’t know why in the world I’d want to go elsewhere when I’m getting the best deal in town. I absolutely want to do season five.”
Many fans wondered if the 40-year-old actress would even have time to participate given her lead role in Ryan Murphy’s highly-anticipated new offering, American Crime Story about the infamous OJ Simpson trial. Thankfully, Murphy and Paulson found a way to make it work. Read his tweet below teasing her new role.
According to Variety, Eddie Redmayne is on top of the list to play the lead in the Harry Potter spin-off. The events of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them takes place in New York seven decades before Potter’s story begins.
Redmayne is being eyed to play Newt Scamander in the highly-anticipated film. The character is described as a “magiczoologist.” For all you Potterheads, you know that’s a person who studies magical creatures. Besides Scamander, there are four other main roles — two American girls and two American boys.
Just when you thought the cast couldn’t get any more star-studded, Sir Ian McKellen enters the scene. The 75-year-old actor is the latest to join Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty & The Beast.
He joins previously announced cast members Emma Watson (Belle), Daniel Stevens (The Beast), Luke Evans (Gaston), Josh Gad (Le Fou), Audra McDonald (Singing Wardrobe), Kevin Kline (Maurice) and Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts). There aren’t many roles left to fill. Have any guesses which one McKellen has been tapped to play? Find out below.
Never in a million years did I think I’d ever be jealous of Pee-wee Herman, but that day has come. I’m sure I’m not the only one who wouldn’t mind riding bitch on a motorcycle with arms hanging onto Joe Manganiello’s tight waist for dear life. Right?
The former True Blood actor joins the cast of Pee-wee’s Big Holiday. The last time Paul Reubens played his iconic character in a feature film was in Big Top Pee-wee back in 1988. Big Holiday doesn’t have a release date yet but will premiere on Netflix.
“I never really thought of Big Adventure as a family movie, but I didn’t try to make an adult movie or a kid movie,” he told Entertainment Weekly previously. “We wanted to make something that appealed to a wide age range, and I think that’s the case with this movie also.”
Correction. She’s not checking in but rather running the hotel for the fifth season of American Horror Story. Can we please name the establishment Bates’ Hotel ;)

The sixth season for any series featuring young actors is always crucial. Typically, the network signs the relative newcomers for six seasons at the beginning to lock them down. Naturally, some usually jump ship when their contract is over to pursue other endeavours or leave because not enough money was offered to stay.
In Nina Dobrev’s case, it seems it’s the former. The 26-year-old actress wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram to go along with a picture of herself with The Vampire Diaries showrunner Julie Plec. Here’s a snippet below.
“I’ve just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn’t just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party. I always knew I wanted Elena’s story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime.”
Plec confirmed Dobrev’s exit with her own statement.
“Saying goodbye to Nina is both bittersweet and beautiful,” she said. “After six-plus years together, the entire cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries has reached a level of closeness that I don’t think any of us ever expected. Nina is excited to spread her wings, get some rest, travel the world and also take it by storm, and we support her a thousand-fold. We will miss Nina and the four hundred characters she played, but we look forward to the insane and exciting challenge of continuing to tell stories of our Salvatore Brothers and our much-loved and gifted ensemble.”
The Vampire Diaries showrunner also revealed that another series regular is stepping down. Find out who below.
