Movies: Ashley Greene Goes Goth for Random

 

In the horror thriller Random (out later this year), Twihards will see a whole new side of Ashley Greene. ”She plays Violet, the worst of the lot,” says director Olly Blackburn. Violet is the sociopathic leader of a gang that targets a student left alone on a college campus over a holiday break. Greene did intense research for the role, and was game for a physical transformation. ”I told them I’d be willing to get all the piercings,” the actress says, though in the end they used fake ones. ”I think my mom is happy they’re not real.”—Sara Vilkomerson

TV: James Brolin Drops By Community

 

 

Hey, it didn’t take ”six seasons and a movie” for us to finally meet Jeff Winger’s dad! James Brolin (right) guest-stars as Joel McHale’s (left) absentee father, William, in Community‘s March 7 episode, and let’s just say that the apple didn’t fall far from the tree — which makes a Thanksgiving reunion all the more tasty/awkward. ”From the moment he opens the front door, whatever he says is just off,” says Brolin (who will also play Nathan Fillion’s onscreen dad in Castle‘s Feb. 25 episode). ”There’s probably something very sad about this, but there’s something very funny and recognizable about it…. Good comedy is about real stuff.”—Dan Snierson
