It was not all work and no play for Divergent star Theo James on set, who recounted during a visit with EW Radio the time he vomited at a Whole Foods after “hitting it very hard” at a party. He was joined by his co-star Shailene Woodley who, in response to the partying story, promptly fist-bumped James and said, “Good job.”
Not surpisingly, there was more to shooting the dystopian film than being hungover. In the clip below, the two also discuss what it means to be “divergent,” how it was to meet for the first time, and the challenges of a big-budget film. READ FULL STORY
Sure, Daniel Radcliffe was excited to land the role of Harry Potter over a decade ago. But as the actor recently told EW’s Jess Cagle, that wasn’t necessarily because he was a huge fan of J.K. Rowling’s books. The true source of Radcliffe’s excitement? “I really wanted to not be in school,” he admitted on EW Radio. “That was a huge part of it. I really disliked school and I really loved being on set.”
In the clip below, Radcliffe also discusses where he was when he learned the life-changing news of his casting — as well as how embarrassed he is to hear his voice in the early films. And yes, Cagle has a clip from Sorcerer’s Stone ready and waiting.

What comes after the apocalypse? For Seth Rogen — co-director, co-writer, and co-star of This Is the End — it’s another comedy featuring his old Freaks and Geeks buddy James Franco.
The film is called The Interview, Rogen said on SiriusXM’s EW Morning Live today. It stars Franco as an entertainment journalist — specifically, “a much dumber, more of a joke version of Ryan Seacrest” — who’s tasked with assassinating North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
Wait — what? Listen to Rogen explain it all in this clip from today’s show, which also features Morning Live hosts Dalton Ross and Jenna Morasca. You can hear the interview on SiriusXM as well: A recap of this week’s best Morning Live moments will run Saturday and Sunday at 2 a.m., 3 p.m., and 8 p.m. ET.
