Jason Dohring and Kristen BellWith just two more months to go before the Veronica Mars movie hits theaters for their Jason Dohring - who plays Neptune's resident OPJ and possibly probably Veronica's soulmate, Logan Echolls - opened up about the upcoming film and offered some interesting reflections on his three years shooting the series.

For starters, Dohring (who was married during the course of the show, mind you) seems to be a fan of serious method acting when it came to his character's relationship with Kristen Bell's Veronica: “A lot of that emotion was very real for me. I think I was in love with [Kristen] for the three years we made that show. Like, I truly felt like I would die without her, and I think that’s what underlined everything people loved about them as a couple.”

Although the 31-year-old actor kept a tight lip about the specifics of the film, he did offer a cryptic description of what to expect: “I think they’ll be very pleased, but also at the same time, [creator] Rob [Thomas] doesn’t tie the story up with a bow. Nothing comes easy in Veronica’s world, so there’s a very melancholy/noir touch at the end that adds these cool layers.”

Lena Dunham on the cover of 'Vogue'Lena Dunham wants the sex in Girls to reflect real life.

The show's creator and star has revealed one of her motivations when wrote the series was to show the love lives of normal looking women in more realistic settings than some programs that have preceded Girls.

If her series can make women feel more comfortable with sex, even its more embarrassing aspects, then Golden Globe nominee Lena will be happy. Speaking in the February 2014 issue of Vogue magazine - on which she appears on the cover - Lena said, "There was a sense that I and many women I knew had been led astray by Hollywood and television depictions of sexuality. Seeing somebody who looks like you having sex on television is a less comfortable experience than seeing somebody who looks like nobody you've ever met. Critics said, 'That guy wouldn't date that girl!' It's like, 'Have you been out on the street lately?' Everyone dates everyone, for lots of reasons we can't understand. Sexuality isn't a perfect puzzle... It's a complicated thing. I want people ultimately, even if they're disturbed by certain moments, to feel bolstered and normalized by the sex that's on the show."

Jennifer LopezJennifer Lopez doesn't want to look silly on American Idol.

The "On The Floor" singer is worried she will be a "giggling fool" during her stint as a judge on the singing competition, because fellow panellists Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. make her laugh so much during shooting.

Speaking during an American Idol season 13 live Q&A on Tuesday, Jennifer said, "I love being between these two guys, I love being on the panel with these guys, they do have a lot of banter going on. They make me laugh, I think the danger this season is not to come off like a giggling fool, because they make me laugh so much, we really are having a good time. They're awesome."

J.Lo claims Keith is the "prankster" of the group, while newcomer Harry - who joined the panel this year - admitted he is the "mischievous" judge and tries his best to make the curvaceous beauty laugh all the time. "There is so much going on, anything to make her lose it," he quipped.


Kiefer Sutherland as Jack BauerKiefer Sutherland is "terrified" about returning to 24.

The 47-year-old actor is reprising his role as terrorism agent Jack Bauer - whom he played for almost nine years until 2010 - in 24: Live Another Day and is feeling the pressure to live up the previous eight seasons of the real-time drama.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association's meeting at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, California on Monday, he said, "I'm terrified. I won't lie to you. Until we start shooting, I'm about as anxious and wound up as I've been in a long time. I'm very nervous. Without patting ourselves on the back too hard, we made eight very strong years. We always would look back every season and wish something had been better, but I was very proud. So to make 12 more episodes and not make them the best 12 we've ever made, I'm terrified."

The series - which will run for half the length of time than previous seasons with just 12 episodes - will begin filming in London in the coming weeks and the actor, who was born in the city, is "anxious" about getting back to work: "I've spent big chunks of my life there, but I'm anxious. We plan to be shooting outside. I'm sure we'll be hated by a large portion of London for snarling up their traffic, and for that I apologize in advance."


Zooey Deschanel, Prince, and 'New Girl' actor Jake Johnson

Prince has "crazy comic instincts."

The "Purple Rain" hitmaker has filmed a guest role in New Girl alongside Zooey Deschanel and Jake Johnson - who plays Jess and Nick - and impressed everyone working on the show with his "incredible" performance. "He's genuinely funny. He's got a very quiet, wry sense of humor but he kills. There's a moment in the episode where he's sitting in between Zooey and Jake on a bench. And it's a silent beef and he's just looking between them trying to figure them out. And it's hilarious. He has crazy comic instincts," executive producer Dave Finkel said.

Chace CrawfordGleeks, prepare yourself for Nate Archibald Chace Crawford!

The former Gossip Girl star is rumored to be appearing in the popular Fox series for its milestone 100th episode. To no one's surprise, an insider says that he'll be playing Quinn Fabray's love interest: "[Chace] will play Dianna Agron's boyfriend, whom she brings back to Lima to meet her friends." Also not surprising (hey, we've never heard him - can you blame us!) is that "his character will not be singing -- as of now."

Considering the fact that he's no stranger to teen dramas, the 28-year-old star seems to have fit in on the Glee set among his friends: "Chace is excited to work with [series co-creator] Ryan Murphy and his longtime friend Matthew Morrison... He knows most of the other cast as well."

Glee's 100th episode will air in two parts on March 18 and March 25.

We had Miguel write us a new song. We have a new one by Jenny Lewis. We have a brand new Lily Allen track. A brand new Christina Perri track.
