The sixth installment in the Universal Pictures franchise looks to successfully transition from street racing to heist action and kicks off this weekend in the United Kingdom today. It’s opposite Warner Bros’ The Great Gatsby (including Thursday previews) and the second week of Paramount’s Star Trek In Darkness. But Fast & Furious 6 is set in London and had its world premiere there. It opens in North America and 59 international markets day and date on May 24th with what no studio has ever dared to do: change the genre of a successful franchise. But chairman Adam Fogelson and co-chairman Donna Langley put Chris Morgan – the screenwriter of Fast Five as well as The Fast And The Furious 3: Tokyo Drift, and Fast & Furious 4 — on the script for the sixth installment, and the whiz at the crime-thriller genre (Wanted) set up Fast Five to intro a Fast Six plot revolving around a major robbery. Universal’s intent was to freshen the franchise. Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) is back as a federal agent alongside Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and of course director Justin Lin (behind the camera for the 4th time) and longtime producer Neal Moritz. It also stars Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Elsa Pataky plus newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.
After watching the past 10 seasons of Project Runway, we feel like we're buddy-buddy with the judges panel. From Nina Garcia and Heidi Klum's facial expressions, we feel like we can tell when they adore a look and also when it's a major no-no. Tim Gunn has become a warm and fuzzy TV friend, someone who we could totally spill our guts to and share every clothing mishap that has ever haunted our lives. Then there is Michael Kors. And isn't he a doll? We loved getting this fashion mogul's take on the outfits that came out of the crazy challenges.

But during season 11, we welcomed someone new into our Project Runway judge family. Designer Zac Posen, known for his creative intellect and innovative gowns is the new guy on the reality TV show catwalk. He's not a newbee anywhere else, as his talent is recognized to the moon and back. If Coco Rocha loves him, well, you get the picture.

OK!: What has been the most challenging part about being a judge on this season's Project Runway?
Zac Posen: Taking time from my busy designer schedule to shoot was an interesting challenge. It was all about finding the balance between personal studio time and taking care to nurture the designers.
OK!: Out of all the challenges, which one do you think was the most instructive to the designers?
ZP: I really enjoyed the alternative materials challenges like the flower challenge with Bette Midler because it forced people to think outside of the box. OK!: What has been your most nerve-racking designer experience?
ZP: Once, all of the heels on our shoes broke during the rehearsal for our show and we had to find alternatives minutes before the runway! OK! News: Like the Trendy Ombré Look? OK! Tried It OK!: What's your favorite part about being a judge?
ZP: I love getting to hang out with Nina, Heidi and Tim, working with an amazing crew, and getting to help the designers grow! OK!: If you could take yourself back to when you first started, similar to the project runway designers, is there anything you would do differently or anything you wish you knew?
ZP: I don’t live with regrets but knowledge is power. Designers today don’t get much incubation time. My experience was like being shot out of a cannon! Photos: Olivia Munn's Gorgeous Yellow Michael Kors Gown OK!: How's it been hanging out with Nina and Heidi?
ZP: Incredible! They are old friends. Nina has been supportive of my work since my early collections and she has even rocked some Zac Posen gowns! Heidi just makes me want to sing, she has a beautiful voice. We both believe in supporting out-of-the box thinking. We all come from different points-of-view but we have the utmost respect for each other! OK!: What's the hardest thing about being a judge?
ZP: Finding balance between performing for TV while truly being invested and involved in the process. Watch: Miley Cyrus Comments on J-Law's New Haircut OK!: How can you relate to the designers?

ZP: Salvador Dali, Cecil Beaton, Elsa Schiaparelli, Daniel Day Lewis, Marie Antoinette. Will you be watching the finale tonight? Tweet @OKMagazine and leave a comment below. Photo credit: Getty Images
British actor and musician Max Beesley (Hotel Babylon) has landed a major recurring role on the upcoming third season of USA Network’s Suits, which premieres July 16. He will play Stephen Huntley, Edward Darby’s (recurring guest star Conleth Hill) charismatic right-hand man and Harvey’s (Gabriel Macht) British counterpart, who arrives in the New York office following the merger. The existence of two Harveys will complicate the already precarious personal dynamics at Pearson/Darby. Beesley, repped by APA, Untitled and UK’s Independent Talent, co-stars in indie Pawn and in the UK series Mad Dogs. Erika Alexander will recur on the new AMC series Low Winter Sun, about the aftermath of a cop murder by fellow Detroit detective Frank Agnew (Mark Strong). Alexander will play Louise “LC” Cullen, a strong and intimidating cop who is matter-of-fact and straightforward in everything she does. When Internal Affairs conducts a corrupt investigation in her department, she takes it in stride. Alexander, repped by Greene & Associates, Untitled and attorney Jeff Bernstein, will next be seen in Michael Radford’s Elsa And Fred.

The 42-year-old family man has listed his stunning Miami Beach mansion on the market for $20 million and OKMagazine.com can take you for a tour of the pricey pad, courtesy of TopTenRealEstateDeals.com. Positioned on the exclusive enclave of La Gorce Island, the gorgeous Mediterranean-style 12,705 square foot home has seven bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a home theater and custom office, and is set on an acre of premium waterfront land on Biscayne Bay. In addition to the main home there's a pool house with a roof terrace and a two bedroom guest house. The Departed star put down roots in Miami after meeting now wife, Argentine-born Luciana Barroso in 2003 while she was working as a bartender and he was filming Stuck on You. "We ended up at a bar where my wife was the bartender. I literally saw her across a crowded room," Matt shared about their impromptu and life changing meeting. "I don’t know how else our paths would have crossed if that didn’t happen. The moral is that when you’re tired, suck it up and go to the bar because you might meet your wife!" The couple married in 2005 and have three children together— in addition, the actor is stepdad to Alexia, Luciana's daughter from a previous relationship. The family is set to make a tidy sum from the home sale—Damon purchased double lots of land for $14.5 million before building their dream house—and the neighborhood reads like a who's who of Hollywood! Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Calvin Klein and Ricky Martin all have property in the area. As previously reported, Matt and Luciana renewed their marriage vows in Saint Lucia on April 13th with Jimmy Kimmel as their officiator! Wedding guests included Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky, and John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. What do you think of Matt Damon's Miami Beach mansion?
