Ansel Elgort joins ‘The Great High School Imposter’

The Fault in Our Stars fame actor Ansel Elgort has joined the ensemble cast of The Great High School Imposter movie.

The project is based on an article published earlier this year about Artur Samarin, a young Ukranian man who posed as a teenager so he could be adopted by a childless couple in a small Pennsylvania town and became the top student in his high school, Saramin was five years older than he claimed. His adopted parents later turned him to the authorities, reported by leading publication.

Mike Makowsky is adapting the script while Jeremy Steckler of Conde Nast Entertainment is producing.

Apart from The Great High School Imposter, Elgort will also be next seen in Steven Spielberg's West Side Story remake.

John Cena's favourite Transformer was Optimus Prime

Wrestling star and actor John Cena says Optimus Prime was his favourite Transformer as a child.

The Bumblebee actor admitted while he "should" pick the title character from the new blockbuster prequel - in which he plays evil Sector 7 agent Jack Burns, reports of leading publication.

In an interview to a newspaper, Cena said, "I was the right age for it, but I was possibly a little bit at the wrong time. I grew up with four other brothers and we had to fight for everything we had in our house.

"I had a wonderful childhood, but it's not like it was overflowing with gifts and presents, so we had to use our imaginations in certain circumstances.

"But my favourite, and I know I should say Bumblebee, really was Optimus Prime. He was the leader of essentially the good guys. I hark back to my obsession with WWE as a kid. I loved the good guys. I wasn't one of those fans that like the bad guys."

Lytton felt 'pressure' to make rape plot realistic

Actress Louisa Lytton of EastEnders fame says she felt a lot of pressure while filming the show's rape storyline.

The 29-year-old also worked with real life rape victims in order to give a realistic portrayal of the survivors of rape, reported by media.

In an interview to a magazine, Lytton said, "There was a lot of pressure on me and the show to do it justice for the survivors of rape.

"I've worked closely with Rape Crisis to ensure the way I act is realistic, so I knew we were safe in our portrayal of it."

Jade Thirlwall reunites with boyfriend

Little Mix singer Jade Thirlwall reunited with her boyfriend Jed Elliot after 103 days apart.

She met him at an airport. Seeing her man, Thirlwall, who had a welcome home sign, rushed towards him and the pair started hugging and kissing, leading publication reported on Sunday.

She posted a video of them and quoted the famous line from Love Actually. She wrote, "103 days later. ‘If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around'."

Last month, fans were concerned the couple had split after she started crying on stage while performing with Little Mix members.

Elliot, who has been on the road with The Body Talks Tour since August, put the worries to bed when he commented beneath one of her pictures "I fancy you".

Elliot and members of his band The Struts have travelled the length and breadth of the US, with barely a day off since the start of September.
