Harrison Gilbertson in new movie


The Need For Speed actor will star in the film adaptation of a best-selling young adult novel.

Need For Speed star Harrison Gilbertson has landed the other male lead in Fallen, an adaptation of Lauren Kate's best-selling young adult book series that will also star Jeremy Irvine and Addison Timlin, TheWrap has learned.

Lotus Entertainment and Mayhem Pictures are producing the movie, based on the first book in Kate's four-part series. Scott Hicks (Shine) is directing from an adapted screenplay by Kathryn Price, Nicole Millard and Michael Ross, the latter of whom wrote the most recent draft.

A Gothic romantic thriller, Fallen follows Luce (Timlin), a shy teen who is sent to Sword and Cross reform school after she's suspected of killing a boy in a fire. Sword and Cross is no ordinary school, of course, as the majority of its students are fallen angels on the side of good or evil.

Like Twilight and Hunger Games, the young female protagonist finds herself in a love triangle with two male students who have dark secrets of their own.

War Horse star Irvine will play Daniel, while Gilbertson will play Cam. Mayhem's Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray are producing with Bill Johnson and Jim Seibel of Lotus Entertainment.

Gilbertson recently wrapped a role in DreamWorks' Need For Speed opposite Aaron Paul, as well as the lead role in the Australian indie movie My Mistress. He also starred in the short film On Your Knees in The Turning, based on a series of Tim Winton's short stories that were either directed by or starred some of Australia's biggest talent, including Cate Blanchett, Mia Wasikowska and Hugo Weaving.

Gilbertson co-starred opposite Jennifer Connelly in Dustin Lance Black's directorial debut Virginia and will soon be seen alongside Jacki Weaver in Marc Carter's Haunt. — Reuters

Pink plays sex addict in debut movie


ON most red carpets, Alecia Moore is known as Pink. But at the premiere of Thanks For Sharing last week, the pop star was recognised by her given name, which was printed in big bold letters on movie posters outside the ArcLight Hollywood.

Moore, 34, has her acting debut in the sex addiction comedy, which opened in the United States last Friday. She stars alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Gad and Tim Robbins as a woman who attends Sexaholics Anonymous meetings to help control her desire to sleep with strange men.

The Get The Party Started singer has real-life experience with addiction. Moore lost her childhood best friend in 2010 to a prescription drug overdose, 15 years after she herself suffered a near-fatal overdose.

Portraying a sex addict, however, proved to be a different challenge. While her costar Gad attended meetings in secret, Moore read books on the subject.

"I believe that all addiction comes from the same monster, it just wears different masks," the Grammy winner said on the carpet.

Even gazing at her name on the film's poster behind her, Moore insisted she's "not an actress." "I'm just here," she said, shrugging. "My whole thing is be fearless. If something scares you, do it."

Having just wrapped up a concert tour in Australia, Moore insists she has no further acting plans. She'd rather keep her focus on singing – she was just named Billboard's Woman of the Year – and raising her two-year-old daughter, Willow. – Los Angeles Times/McClatchy-Tribune Information Services
