Check out this just released poster for the new horror adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Prince Caspian himself, Ben Barnes, looks creepily fantastic as the rich, superficial Gray character, who wishes his portrait would age instead of him. When it does, Gray must fight the evil monster that lives within the portrait.

Spooky!

Dorian Gray comes out Sept. 9th.

Are U interested in seeing this flick?

British actor Ben Barnes was spotted yesterday in Boston, Massachusetts, on the set of his latest flick, Valediction.

The The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian star was filming a few scenes with his co-star, Sarah Roemer.

And although Barnes is sporting the rugged beard look, he's still muy caliente!

What do U think of his new look?

Twilight Cast Upheaval! Who's In? And Who's OUT?????

There seems to be a lot of talk and UNCERTAINTY surrounding the new Twilight sequel, New Moon.

So much so that new director Chris Weitz and even author Stephenie Meyer had to release statements explaining the situation.

But what about the reports that the studio, Summit, doesn't want to re-hire "baby-faced" Taylor Lautner as Jacob. Apparently, they don't think he has what it takes to play the werewolf love interest/lead in New Moon.

The statements released didn't confirm his return.

That was NOT an oversight!

Now, reports are that the 26 year-old actor Michael Copon, from Scorpion King 2 (above, bottom), is one of the several actors director Weitz is considering to play the new and larger Jacob Black role.

A rep for Copon said they are making all efforts to land this gig. Even Copon is taking to self-advertisement by changing his Facebook status to messages such as "Michael Copon in a Twilight Zone!" and "Michael Copon is the older Jacob Black!" His rep confirmed that the Facebook is indeed Copon's.

Hey, whatever it takes to be noticed!

Even Summit confirmed that omitting Launter from the release wasn't an error. A rep said, "The casting decision in regards to the character Jacob Black has yet to be made."

Drama!!!

Additionally, 27-year-old Prince Caspian star Ben Barnes is also campaigning for a role. He's said to be actiively trying to get the role of Aro, "a mind-reading vampire whose "New Moon" encounter with Edward and Bella helps shape their destiny together." And, coincidentally enough, Barnes has the same manager as Copon and Twilight star Cam Gigandet.

We smell a big paycheck coming in for their manager!

But even when a lead for Jacob has been cast, director Weitz is only left with about 12 weeks until filming starts.

There you have it Twilight fans!

What do U think?

Would Michael Copon be a good choice for the role of Jacob?

Would you be happy with Barnes in New Moon????

So much to discuss!!!

Smoldering is the best word to describe Ben Barnes.

Whereas Zac Efron and Chace Crawford are "pretty" - Ben is fucking HOT!
