Hugh Laurie, Omar Epps, Robert Sean Leonard, and Jesse Spencer have been with “House” for its entire eight-year run. Even “newbie” Peter Jacobson has been around since Season Four. So when Odette Annable and Charlyne Yi walked onto the “House” set, they knew they were joining a tight-knit crew — and, as the new girls, expected a little hazing. However, as they told us, they’ve been able to handle it pretty easily… and, in some cases, even turn the tables on their tormentors!
Watch an all-new episode of “House,” Monday night at 9/8c on Fox.

Evangeline Lilly starred in the ABC hit series, Lost, for six seasons. Since the series concluded its run, Lilly has been selective of the projects she would like to act in. Lilly co-stars in the family/action film, Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman, which opened in theatres today. She is now working on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and The Hobbit: There and Back Again. Both films are directed by Academy Award winner Peter Jackson.
We spoke to Lilly, who described her character (the elf Tauriel) in the Hobbit movies, and how much fun it was to wear the elf ears. Lily goes on to tell us how much fun she is having working with Peter Jackson.
“I am playing elf. I’m playing elf in the film and it is, it’s so much fun to put my ears on and put my wig on and put my ears on. And I feel like I’m a little girl playing dress up. Like it’s the easiest thing to do to put that character on because I’ve been dreaming about it since I was a kid. And working with Peter Jackson is such a delight because he is a really, really down to earth guy. He is funny. He is funny as hell, he constantly has you laughing on set. And he’s a constant professional. He knows what he’s doing. So you feel like you know you’re in good hands with an actor. He can relax and do the job and not what worry the end results is going to be. You know whether the end result is going to be good or bad.”
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, opens in theatres December 14, 2012, and The Hobbit: There and Back Again will open in theatres in 2013.

The adorable Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny on the CBS hit series The Big Bang Theory, has been acting in films and television shows for almost two decades. Before landing the role on The Big Bang Theory, many will remember her from 8 Simple Rules, where she played one of the daughter’s of the late John Ritter.
Cuoco told us that she remembers when she first started acting and auditioning for roles. Her parents made her play sports in addition to acting, which she thought was great because if something went wrong with one of them, she always had something to fall back on. This helped build her confidence in so many different aspects. (Click on the audio player to hear Kaley Cuoco)

The Script is one of those bands that you instantly fall in love with. They have a natural charisma about them and they make you feel like part of the band. These Irish dudes — Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power all have one thing in common…they are utterly grateful for everything they’ve got, where they’ve finally arrived and where they are headed. The band invited Fox All Access host, Chris Leary, down to a pub on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles to catch up. The crazy thing about the location is it brings back a lot of fond memories for lead singer Danny O’Donoghue. He distinctly remembers walking the Sunst Strip a few years back in his good old days of “starving artist.” He told us he will never forget the day when he borrowed a friend’s fake Rolex watch just to impress those who he was trying to shop a record deal with. All his hard work as well as the hard work of Mark Sheehan and Glen Power has finally paid off, The Script has international success and in this interview you can see how thankful they are. These guys don’t take anything for granted and it’s guys like these that deserve everything they’ve achieved. We spent so much time with these guys, we had to split up the interview. Here’s part 1 of 3, stay tuned for more…
Hugh Jackman stars in the family/action film Real Steel, which opens in theatres tomorrow. Jackman plays a down and out boxing promoter who at one time was a contending fighter. He teams up with his son (against his better judgment) to build a robot to contend for the boxing championship. Jackman gives a great performance in the film, however his young co-star, Dakota Goyo, who plays his son, steals the scenes between him and Jackman. Jackman told us that without Goyo’s strong performance, there really isn’t a movie, and that at times, the cast and crew were in awe of Goyo’s performance. Jackman thinks Goyo has a great acting career ahead of him. (Click on the audio bar to hear Hugh Jackman)
