NEW YORK (AP) — No kids, one kid, four kids: There's no end to the debate over why people decide on a certain number.
EXCLUSIVE: Oscar-nominated actor John Hurt has been tapped as the co-lead opposite Corey Stoll and Mia Maestro in FX‘s high-profile drama pilot The Strain, from Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse, which is being eyed for a 13-episode pickup. The high-concept thriller, directed by del Toro from a script he co-wrote with Chuck Hogan based on their vampire novel trilogy, tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Stoll), the head of the Centers for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. Hurt, who first worked with del Toro in his 2004 feature Hellboy, will portray Professor Abraham Setrakian, a holocaust survivor who immigrated to the U.S. after World War II and now runs a pawn shop in Spanish Harlem. As the outbreak spreads, he may be the only one with answers — if anyone will listen. “I am incredibly happy to be reunited with John, who is one of the greatest actors in the world and one of my favorite people ever,” said del Toro. “Chuck and I always visualized him while writing The Strain novels and he is absolutely perfect for the part!” Kevin Durand, Richard Sammel, Lauren Lee Smith, Jonathan Hyde and Miguel Gomez co-star ...

I've never been daring or adventurous when it comes to my hair. I have a thick, wavy mane that sometimes I'll make stick straight and maybe every six months I'll lighten up my brownish/blonde locks and get a trim. Two hair disasters in my youth have prevented me from ever going really crazy. There was the perm in the seventh grade that my mom talked me into and there was the Saturday night my junior year of high school when I decided to dye my hair myself. I don't think I need to delve any further into those disastrous results and relive the pain . . . we've all been there, right? I'll just say I may or may not have had orange hair in the yearbook that year. At least I never got the urge to grab the scissors! OK! Manicure Monday: Get Kylie and Kendall Jenners Nail Art But I was ready to jump back in and take my boring longish hair of today with the predictable left part and drab highlights to the next level. Something subtle and easy but a cut/color that would make an impact. Flipping through a magazine one night, I was finally inspired when I came across a pic of the one and only Blake Lively. OK! Exclusive: Lauren Conrad's Summer Hair and Beauty Secrets I knew I couldn't copy her locks exactly (no one can and I'm okay with that) but I thought perhaps I could emulate her volume and her bright color. And that's where the amazing Ammon Carver, Matrix Artistic Director and Celebrity Stylist over at MIZU Salon in New York City became my saving grace. OK! News: Jessica Alba Has Bangs! Ammon didn't laugh when I told him I wanted to look like Blake. In fact, he gave me some amazing tips that everyone should follow. Straight from Ammon himself, he explains what he did to get the right color on me: "We started with a base color to warm up and lighten up your natural color—your roots. Then I put highlights all over, but more heavily in front of your face. I used the base color at the scalp and then put the highlights, merging them into it so nowhere will the highlights look like they're growing out of your scalp. Now you’re looking at more locks where the highlights illuminate within the hair color, instead of hair color that grew out of straight out of her scalp. It’s not realistic. And in that regard, it’s also easy to maintain because you don’t have highlights that within two weeks have roots showing. I touched up the base first. In each foil, I put on the base on the roots and then I use our new light master, which is a highlighting system to softly merge the two colors together, so you’ll a beautiful flow between the two. We rinsed with shampoo and did a glaze for shine and toning." OK! Exclusive: Don't Stress Out Your Tresses! And the essence of Blake's look is her amazing volume and shine. I don't think she's ever had a frizzy strand of hair in her life! So after Ammon gave me a great cut that touched up my split ends and spruced up my parted to the left side bangs, it was all about the products to get a cut that Blake herself wouldn't be mad to show off. Here's what Ammon used: Total Results Blonde Care Flash Filler for soft, healthy shine and to protect the hair cuticle ($16) Design Pulse Go Big Mousse for volume and control ($15) Total Results Amplify Hairspray for lasting hold and finish ($15) Availability: Visit Matrix.com for salon locations And to help with overall frizz during the humid summer months, Ammon recommends a light oil because moisturized hair doesn't have flyaway issues nearly as bad as dry hair. He says to try Biolage Exquisite Oil ($22, Visit Matrix.com for salon locations). "It's lightweight and can be used on many different hair types. It can be used on damp hair before styling or after styling as a finishing serum," Ammon explained. Soooooo . . . ready to see my Blake look? Ha–that was the work in progress!
