6 Things To Know About Nat Wolff, Co-Star Of “The Fault In Our Stars”

From the moment the trailer for “The Fault In Our Stars” was posted on January 29, it took less than two months for the clip to become the most “liked” movie trailer on YouTube. (FYI: With four days until the film’s nationwide release on June 6, the clip currently clocks in at over 19.7 million “likes” and 302K thumbs up.) In other words, the book has moved beyond being a YA must-read and evolved into a cross-generational, pop-culture sensation—and one that doesn’t involve vampires or werewolves, either. In fact, it’s about kids with cancer, so put that in your dystopian fiction pipe and smoke it.

For as much as fans and critics are obsessed with seeing how the relationship between lead characters Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus (Ansel Elgort) develops on-screen, the supporting cast is not one to be underestimated. Case in point: Nat Wolff, who plays Isaac, a fellow member of the cancer patients’ support group. Though only 19, Wolff already has a pretty long acting resume, including scene-stealing appearances in movies like “Admission” and “Stuck In Love.” Plus, ever since he was 11, Wolff has performed with his younger brother, Alex; the two formed The Naked Brothers Band in 2005, which spawned a movie and TV series for Nickelodeon. (The duo currently performs under the name Nat & Alex and will release two new songs, “The Last Station” and “Blues,” on June 5.) Keep reading »

We heard way back in December that Emma Roberts had a thing for one James Franco, which we suspect may have made things a touch awkward on the set of “Palo Alto”. Directed by Gia Coppola (yes, Francis Ford’s granddaughter, Sofia’s niece, Jason Schwartzman’s cousin, and so on and so forth) and based on a collection of short stories penned by Franco himself, the new movie revolves around a group of high school students in the Northern California suburb of Palo Alto. Roberts stars as the film’s female lead, with Franco as a teacher with whom she becomes romantically entangled. They should probably just have cut to the chase and called it “Famous People’s Attractive Children” — Roberts plays opposite Val Kilmer’s son, Jack. From the looks of the very promising trailer, “Palo Alto” has just the right formula of dark humor and atmospheric ennui that will make it the kind of cult hit teen movie in the vein of… well, anything Sofia Coppola has ever done. Must be that Coppola blood! The film is on the festival circuit right now, and is still in search of a U.S. distributor, but I don’t doubt that it’ll catch somebody’s eye this festival season.
