  • Don't believe everything you hear about Twilight and its sequels. Things are heating up already on the third installment, Eclipse. They haven't even started the second one yet, New Moon. When you've got a robust franchise, filmmakers are eager to get on board. Word is, the Spanish director of The Orphanage, Juan Antonio Bayona, and 3:10 to Yuma helmer James Mangold are both circling the project, but Summit insists that no meetings are scheduled as yet. Both would be strong choices.
    As to the last two unfilled roles in New Moon, vampires Jane and Aro, no offers have yet gone out, despite what you may have read. And the role of Leah Clearwater isn't being filled, because according to writer Melissa Rosenberg,
    she isn't in the script!

  • The cast of JONAS stick close together at the 2009 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour at the Universal Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday morning (January 16).
    Joe Jonas, Nicole Anderson, Kevin Jonas, Chelsea Staub, and Nick Jonas put on their best smiles to talk about their new series, premiering on Disney Channel in the spring.
    In JONAS, the brothers star as Nick, Kevin and Joe Lucas who try to lead normal lives by attending private school, Horace Mantis Academy.
  • Jonas Brothers have reportedly increased security after a group of fans began running off with their underwear. During their recent tour, the boys began noticing pairs of boxer shorts disappearing from dressing rooms.
    They initially thought it was a joke, but when notes began to turn up in their bags saying: ‘Your undies are safe with us.. The Undie Snatchers!,’ they hired more security staff to keep their possessions safe.
  • Los Angeles (E! Online) – I cannot tell the Jonas brothers apart. Please help me.
    —May, Terre Haute
    Easy. One's the emo-looking one, one's the quiet talent, one's the...other one.
    I really don't blame you for being confused. They all seem to wear the same tie. There are no designated sluts within the band because all three of them wear purity rings. It's also really hard to find out who loves Jesus more, Kevin, Joe or Nick.
    Now, for some specifics:
    • Joe usually has the straight hair and always has the big, puppy eyes. (Per Kenneth Hein, managing editor of the Adweek Media Group and a teen marketing expert, "Joe is the emo-slick one.")
    • Nick almost always wears his hair curly, while Kevin, that wild man, may go either way.
    • If both Nick and Kevin are wearing their hair curly, and you REALLY NEED to tell them apart, Kevin is probably the only one of the two sporting sideburns.
    • In order of eyebrow heaviness: Joe (heaviest), Kevin, Nick.
    • Kevin is the oldest, at 21. Joe is 19. Nick is 16.
    • You may be able to tell them apart by their purity rings. Each of the rings supposedly reflects a unique personality. Kevin reportedly has a pseudo-rebel-style studded purity ring from Tiffany. Joe's is said to be simple silver with a cross on it. Nick, from what I understand, got his mesh-style ring at Disney World.
    • Only Nick plays the drums. If you see the band playing, and there's a Jonas brother on the drums, it's most likely Nick.
    • Joe does not play the guitar. If you see a Jonas brother playing a guitar, it's not Joe. If it's a tambourine, however, it probably is.
    • Joe mostly just sings and flashes the puppy eyes.
    Need more? How's this:
    • Joe reportedly flat-irons his hair. Nick only used to flat-iron his hair.
    • Nick once dated Miley Cyrus. The other brothers, as far as I know, did not.
    • Nick has diabetes.
    • Joe seems, like, really wild onstage, but he's like so quiet in real life. Kevin is the real extrovert. Nick is the core of the band's talent, the chief songwriter and, by all accounts, the best musician.
    • Nick was older before he was younger, while Joe is just plain older now that he's older. Here, this is what I mean:
    "I think we've grown into our personalities as we've gotten older," Nick recently told the Toronto Star. "At age 3, I was 30. I'm younger now. Joe was so shy when he was younger, but now you can't stop him. And Kevin has gotten so deep into his music, it's awesome."
  • It's hard to imagine what will be more exciting for Sasha and Malia Obama next week: their father's historic swearing-in to the Oval Office – or seeing the Jonas Brothers perform live. "We know Sasha and Malia are fans of 'Burning Up,' so we'll be playing that," Nick, who will perform with his brothers during next week's Inaugural festivities in Washington, D.C., told reporters at a Television Critics Association panel for their Disney series Jonas Friday. This won't be the Jonas's first encounter with the First Family-to-be: Nick, 16, says the Obama girls beat him at ping-pong backstage at The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "[There was] a little pressure with the 25 Secret Service agents there," Joe Jonas, 19, piped up in his little brother's defense. The Jonas's Camp Rock co-star Demi Lovato is also Washington-bound. "I'm ridiculously nervous, to a point where I don't know what I'll be able to do with myself," she said. "It's a huge honor to be a part of this especially because it's not any just any other president. It's an amazing opportunity," said Lovato, 16, adding that she would be performing "Get Back" and "La La Land" from her album. Although she's not old enough, Lovato says she can't wait to vote and is interested in politics. "We'll get into political debates, me and my friends, and I get into heated debates," she says, adding that she won't share her viewpoints publicly. "I'm definitely private on that matter." With any luck, Nick Jonas says this won't be his last time in the nation's capital: "I've always talked about working in the White House one day," he quipped.
