Hmm… We don't know about this. LOLz

A Chuck Bass by any other name DOES smell as
sweet deliciously SOUR! LOLz!!
The FIRST trailer for the upcoming screen adaptation of Romeo and Juliet has LEAKED all over the internetz, and we scooped up some of that Shaksperian liquid for your viewing pleasure!
Ch-ch-check out the rough footage (above)!
And yes… that IS Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick playing the hot headed Tybalt!
And judging from his performance as the often devilish Chuck on GG, we're sure he'll do justice to the iconic role.
SO excited for a new R&J!
We adored Baz Luhrman's modern twist and are quite partial to the 1968 version, so we can't WAIT to see another take on the classic tale, which is arguably the most famous love story EVER.

Whoa! We've heard Jaden Smith spit some rhymes before, but he really lays it down in this track!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the brand new Shakespeare, is which Jaden calls himself the reincarnation of the Bard.
You know, that smooth flow and rhyme talent reminds us of someone, but we just can't think of who… LOLz!

Yep! This is happening, folks!
Orlando Bloom will play Romeo to Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad's Juliet in David Leveaux’s Broadway production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet!
With the Capulets cast as an African-American family and the Montagues as a heaping hand of vanilla wafers, the show will navigate within a re-imagined, interracial world! The producers revealed:

And here we thought Professor X was a fictional hero!!
James McAvoy played the titular character in Macbeth last night in London, but the theatrical production took a turn for the REAL when an audience member fell iill and collapsed!
Not even skipping a beat, James switched mindsets from Shakespeare to superhero and jumped into the audience to offer his assistance!!!

Doth our eyes deceive us?? Is this a trailer for the long awaited Much Ado About Nothing from Joss Whedon??
We LOVE that he takes the time out of his blockbuster schedules to do things like this (we hear that Dr. Horrible 2 will be shooting this year!), just so he can keep connected with his fans!
What better way to do that than have pretty much every Whedon alum in one place, including the wonderful and charismatic Nathan Fillion, who you might remember being this year's winner for Best Dramatic TV Actor at the People's Choice Awards!
If you couldn't tell by the title, this is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's beloved comedy, with Alexis Denisof and Amy Acker in the roles of sparring lovers Benedick and Beatrice. It might have a contemporary setting, but will still use Shakespeare's original text!
Shot in only 12 days, Joss did the whole thang right after Avengers — and if you couldn't tell from our Whedoners (Whedon + boners!), we're SUPER exciteballs to see it!

Got a due date on Valentine's Day? Planning to conceive that night?
Here's a great list of Valentine-inspired baby names courtesy of our friends at Babble:
Byron is a great boy's name. And while its meaning isn't rooted in love, there are many a-famous Byrons that make this a perfectly romantic name, like Lord Byron and Shakespeare's loyal character, Biron.
This sing-songy Australian girl's name means "to love." And what's not to love?
