Stars in Your Eyes
Andrew C. Stone
But there’s more to him than hit songs, great hair, and an all-American mug. His first acting job, on ABC’s All My Children, earned him a Daytime Emmy nomination, and he followed that up with Summerland, Disney Channel guest spots, and the indie film Keith. He also lent his golden tonsils to the films Tinker Bell, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and Horton Hears a Who!. Later this year, McCartney will take his thespian inclinations to the next level in M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender.
Life is good for Alexander Ludwig, the 16-yearold heartthrob-in-training in Disney’s fast-paced and futuristic Race to Witch Mountain. He’s already been memorable in a number of choice kiddie roles—The Sandlot 3, Air Bud: World Pup, Eve and the Fire Horse—as well as the sci-fi adventure tale The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising. Now, Race to Witch Mountain puts him on a whole new playing field as he, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Carla Gugino, and AnnaSophia Robb revisit the beloved Witch Mountain franchise from the seventies.
Ludwig and Robb portray alien siblings whose spaceship has crashed outside Vegas, and who must enlist the help of a cab driver (Johnson) to get back without falling victim to an E.T. bounty hunter. Ludwig’s blond, blue-eyed appeal will get the ’tween set screaming, while his ease on camera has already got casting directors going, “Screw everyone we’ve seen so far…. Get me that kid.”
Zen and the Art of Dance-Floor Maintenance
As I plan my Super Sweet 32 party (Who are you to judge me?) I am taking into consideration the three C’s of DJ booking. He’s got to be cute, have a cool name, and have some serious cred among the people who matter most to me—beautiful celebrities.
Therefore, DJ Zen Freeman is top-of-mind for this coveted contract. This handsome UK import spins an infectious mix of pop, hip-hop, disco, and electronic tracks, and is the go-to guy for the top Hollywood bashes, fashion events, and celeb soirées. Justin Timberlake, Rosario Dawson, Jeremy Piven, and RyanSeacrest have all used him to get their parties started, while modeling agencies, charities, and big brands keep him on speed dial. He was even the spinner of choice for the Miramax Golden Globe party and livelied up Miami’s Delano for New Year’s Eve. That’s cred. For bookings, e-mail email@example.com.
Double Your Fun
We love twins who do things together! The Barbi twins excel at tanning and being nude. Mary-Kate and Ashley weave a spell with their seductively slouchy fashions. And identical twin brothers Bob and Mike Bryan dominate the world of men’s doubles tennis, having won 49 ATP doubles tennis titles—including five grand slams—and zeroing in on the world record for most career doubles titles won by a single pair of doubles players.
