Shockya.com recently spoken to True Blood star Stephen Moyer about his new film ‘The Caller’ which was directed by Matthew Parkhill and which also stars Twilight actress Rachelle Leferve, is about the story of a woman named Mary (Rachelle Leferve’s character) who has recently been granted a divorce from her abusive husband. Stephen Moyer portrays the role of Mary’s new boyfriend John. After moving into her new apartment, she begins to receive random phone calls from a woman named Rose that she didn’t know before. Rose and Mary begin to form a bond together over their failed relationships, and eventually Rose reveals that she has called Mary from the past. Mary doesn’t believe her and from that point on attempts to avoid Rose’s calls. Eventually, Rose begins taking revenge on Mary for ignoring her and choosing John over her.
Here’s an excerpt when asked about how he got ready for his role as John:
SY: How did you prepare for the role of John?
SM: Well, I sat down with Matthew (the director), and we talked about what John would have done, where he was from, what his life was like, and possibly that there had been some heartache for him, that he probably split up from a relationship, and that he was single. He was hurting from that relationship. This is all off-screen, of course, we don’t see any of this. You kind of prep, with a thought in mind that you try to make the character as real as possible. Sometimes you’ll sit down and write down who those relationships were, and what happened in them. I think what Matthew had managed to do very well is convey (that) Rachelle’s character Mary is in a very difficult place, a very dark spot in her life, with her divorce and what’s going on in the new apartment. So it’s important to sort of put somebody in there who isn’t malevolent or trying to take something from her, and I think that relationship grows very nicely.

Twilight star Taylor Lautner chats with Seventeen Magazine about his ‘Abduction’ co-star Lily Collins, going back to college, and singing in the shower. Here’s what he said about college:
“I finished high school while filming movies. And then as soon as I was done, I enrolled in my local community college and got 12-15 credits out of the way really quickly. After that, it just got too busy, but if I get a break again, going back definitely interests me—I might be interested in studying psychology.”

The Daily Mail posted an article attacking Hayden because she was charging $30 a signature at the Fan Expo Canada in Toronto this past weekend, claiming that she must have fallen on hard times.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel star Eliza Dushku read said article and was very pissed about it that she wrote a letter to The Daily Mail. Here’s an excerpt:
I write to you because the piece of your paper that concerns me was anonymous. The piece was 27th August titled “Are times that tough Hayden?” ridiculing and attacking the actor Hayden Panettiere for participating in a Toronto Expo fan gathering where fans are charged money (Oh shock! Oh shame!) in exchange for autographs, signed pictures, and the chance for a bit of face time with their favorite celebrity.
Why do I get the feeling this is going to get ugly?

TV Fanatic editor in chief Matt Richenthal posted three excerpts from an interview he had with The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder. Here’s 1 of 3 of the excerpts:
How does Damon’s struggle mirror that of the actor?
A lot of stuff that Damon goes through is super-cathartic for me, as an individual, and it’s not always pretty. You’re muddying the water, all the time. You’re pulling from all these things in your life that are not necessarily good. It’s basically like getting paid for therapy. Instead of laying on someone’s couch and telling them about how you feel, you’re internally pulling all this stuff.
Happy Birthday with lots of love and joy.
