Zac Efron

Zac Efron is said to be looking for a mid-seven-figure salary and script approval before signing a contract with the filmmakers.


"There's a lot of wrong ways to do this movie," the Daily Telegraph quoted Efron as telling Variety magazine.    "It's a matter of finding the right balance. Until we find it, I can't fully ..." he paused trying to find a word.    "... I can't finish that sentence," he said abruptly.    As the conversation moved on to the next topic, he finally finds the word.    "Commit. Until I fully commit," he stated.


Even though Efron at times may say what he wants, he somehow seems to catch himself and revert back to his script. But Ortega is confident that the actor will do very well with the new role.


"Its like life imitating the movies - suddenly (the cast) has come of age as young people. The light of the future is shining brightly into their eyes, begging them to make decisions that will impact on the rest of their lives," Ortega said.

"I see the characters and the actors as having arrived in the same place at the same time.


"But I have great confidence in them, their families and the teams they have around them, that they're going to make good choices. They are all wise beyond their years. They have a sense of humour. They're sensible, humbled by the attention. They're going to do good," he added.

Shia Labeouf

Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf’s dented truck, recked by the actor himself in a horrific accident, has gone up for auction on eBay.


According to celebrity web site TMZ, bidding for the fabulously wrecked Ford, will begin at 7,000 dollars and the auction will be available for public viewing.


The badly dented vehicle was bought at an insurance auction by a man, who did not realize it belonged to the movie star until he found a Warner Brothers badge inside.


And once he realized, he immediately decided to make a quick buck, reports the New York Daily News.


The 22-year-old flipped his truck in a late-night crash with another vehicle in West Hollywood in July. His “Transformers” co-star Isabel Lucas was a passenger but was not injured.


LaBeouf, who injured his left hand, was arrested, but not charged, on suspicion of drunk driving after the accident.

Christian Bale

The Dark Knight, Christian Bale’s second Batman film, opened in late July 2008, with an absolutely enormous buzz leading up to it, in part because of the tragic death of Heath Ledger, whose spin as the Joker received Oscar talk, even from his fellow actors in the film. The film broke box-office records left and right.

Christian Bale was also nominated for askmen's Top 49 Men of 2008.

In 2009, Christian Bale will appear alongside Johnny Depp as gangster Melvin Purvis in Public Enemies, and then he’s set to star in Killing Pablo, chasing down Columbian gangster and drug lord Pablo Escobar. Finally, as he did with Batman, he will step into another established movie franchise, that of the Terminator, in Terminator Salvation.

Jeremy Sumpter

Jeremy Sumpter plays J.D. McCoy on "Friday Night Lights" which will began airing on DirecTV on October 1, followed by airings on NBC in February 2009.


After a worldwide search, Jeremy was chosen to play "Peter" in the P.J. Hogan version of Peter Pan. This was one of the most coveted roles in films for a teen actor in recent years. "It was a part that I really wanted," says Jeremy, "since I'd be able to fight pirates and fly around the stage on wires." Jeremy trained extensively in sword fighting and gymnastics prior to shooting the movie in Australia.
Clubhouse was Jeremy's first television series. "It was really a dream role since I've always loved baseball and played little league when I was younger.

Jeremy was cast in the role of Justin in Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life. “Justin was a good kid who got into a little trouble with his computer and got addicted to on-line pornography to the point where it almost ruins his life,” says Jeremy.

After wrapping, he immediately went on to star in The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang in Oregon. A lot of the people from Napoleon Dynamite were involved in the film and it was a lot of fun for him to shoot.

Jeremy shot another film in Oregon called "Calvin Marshall." It should be released sometime in 2009.

Topher Grace

Christopher John "Topher" Grace (born July 12, 1978) is an American actor, best known for playing the lead role of Eric Forman on the long-running Fox live-action sitcom That '70s Show, and the villain Eddie Brock, Jr./Venom in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3.


Grace was cast as Eric Forman on Fox's That '70s Show, which debuted in 1998. The sitcom was successful and Grace became well known among television watchers; he played the role until the seventh season, after which he left to prepare for his upcoming film, Spider-Man 3. The series was renewed for another season despite his absence before its ending in 2006. Grace would make a very brief guest appearance in the last episode.


Grace briefly attended college at the University of Southern California, but left during his freshman year to concentrate on his television work and to pursue a career in film. He played a prep school student who uses cocaine and introduces his girlfriend to heroin in director Steven Soderbergh's 2000 film Traffic, as well as having uncredited cameos as himself in Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven, and its 2004 sequel, Ocean's Twelve. "The joke is that you’re supposed to play the worst version of yourself and I don’t think too many people are comfortable with that. I never thought for a second that people were really going to think that’s what I was like. I think that people will know that I was faking it in those movies," he told Flaunt magazine in 2007. He planned to cameo in Ocean's Thirteen but due to his filming Spider-Man 3 he had to drop out. He also appeared in director Mike Newell's 2003 film Mona Lisa Smile.


In 2004, Grace had the starring role in two major feature films; he played the leading roles in the Robert Luketic-directed Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! and the Paul Weitz dramedy, In Good Company, in which he played an ambitious but troubled corporate executive. That same year, Grace also starred in the film P.S., which received only a limited theatrical release. Grace's work in P.S. and In Good Company was recognized by the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures in the category of "Breakthrough Performance by an Actor".

In 2007, Grace portrayed Eddie Brock / Venom in Spider-Man 3, directed by Sam Raimi. Sony have announced that they feel he is unable to "carry" a blockbuster movie, so if the movie was to be made, he would not be chosen. Grace himself was a fan of the comics, and read the Venom stories as a kid. Grace is set to appear in the 1980s retro comedy Kids in America. Grace co-wrote the script and will be co-producing the film.

Matt Riddlehoover stars (and bares ALL) in WATCH OUT

Sexy entertainer Matt Riddlehoover stars (and bares ALL) in WATCH OUT - an outrageous new film now touring the world!


Roger Ebert named Steve Balderson’s film FIRECRACKER (with Karen Black and Mike Patton) on his list of 2005’s Best Films. Steve Balderson is back with a new film, WATCH OUT, based on the best-selling novel by Dr. Joseph Suglia. The film screens around the globe this fall in cities including London, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and L.A. as part of the WATCH OUT: Stop Turning Me On world tour.
Recently nominated for Best Film at Raindance in London, WATCH OUT is the story of Jonathan Barrows (Matt Riddlehoover in "an extraordinary, bravura performance"), a man who falls in love with himself, literally. He is attracted to his own body, carries out an erotic relationship with a blow-up doll that resembles him, and takes pleasure in rejecting the advances of his many admirers. He descends into a world of carnivorous priests and Prozac-popping Polish prostitutes and eventually assassinates the world's most popular pop-diva.

Critics are calling WATCH OUT “one of the great cult films of al l time” (MJ Simpson, UK). Soiled Sinema says: “This film not only changed the way I viewed things; it rocked me to the core.” (Soiled Sinema). Film Threa t gives it four stars and writes: "This is not a nice movie fo r nice people. Its undefinable and a frightening piece of work. It’s what indie movies should be all about.”

WATCH OUT stars Matt Riddlehoover (TO A TEE), Peter Stickles (SHORTBUS), B-movie superstar Jeff Dylan Graham, Jillian Lauren (MARGARET CHO'S THE SENSUOUS WOMAN, rock wife to WEEZER bassist Scott Shriner), Amy Kelly (NEW YORK GOES TO HOLLYWOOD) and burlesque darling Lady Monster.


Co-produced by Oscar-nominated sound editor Paul N.J. Ottosson (SPIDER-MAN 2), WATCH OUT will show in various cities around the world for one night only this fall. Director Steve Balderson, actor Matt Riddlehoover and various members of the supporting cast will be available for a Q&A after most screenings.
