Damn it. Just when we thought we were going to be able to ignore Zach Braff's controversially crowd-sourced sophomore feature, he goes and casts Anna Kendrick. According to The Wrap, the "Pitch Perfect" star, so often the best thing in whatever she's in, has joined the cast of Braff's currently-prepping "Wish I Was Here." The actress will play the love interest of Braff's character's brother (Josh Gad), a young cosplayer named Janine. Manic Pixie Dream Girl alert! Mandy Patinkin is also in the cast (Mandy Patinkin Dream Girl alert!), and Kendrick will next be seen in the questionable-looking "Rapturepalooza," which opens on June 7th. Someone else we're a big fan of is British director Eran Creevy, who made an ace debut a few years back with "Shifty," and followed it up earlier this year with homegrown actioner "Welcome To The Punch." We've been tipping the filmmaker, who was one of our Directors On The Rise this year, for a Hollywood breakout for a while and it seems to have arrived...
Some celebs make their hair color their official trademark and don't stray farther than a few highlights. Anne Hathaway is no longer on that list! She's the celeb who made waves for, like, years because of her pixie cut. But last night, fans saw that the actresses took a journey to a blonder side. Make that a much blonder side. "A new cool Platinum blonde color and the sharp slightly boyish finish with loads of texture were the perfect match,” says Anne's stylist, Sascha Breuer.

Dry the sides of your hair flat to your head in a backwards direction.

Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Tesla Motors "We decided we were wrong and other people were right and we decided to fix it." A month ago, Tesla Motors announced what it called a "revolutionary" financing option, and waved some magic pixie dust around to come up with a monthly cost of like $500. Today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced a bunch of changes to the financing options and to Tesla's online calculator to be more realistic and better represent people's real-world costs. Despite an early reshuffling of the numbers, Tesla got a lot of negative feedback regarding the pixie dust and today, Musk said, "We decided we were wrong and other people were right and we decided to fix it." Here are some of the changes: Most importantly, Tesla has raised the guaranteed resale value to be the highest of any luxury sedan made in volume. That means that a "leased" Model S will be worth more than the average resale value of all Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Lexus or Jaguar vehicles in the same price range (based on ALG resale value numbers). In the online calculator, where Tesla talks about the "true cost of ownership," many defaults have been changed. The "time saved" option is now turned off, the expected gas price has been lowered, the MPG of the gas car has been raised. In short, the defaults are more conservative, but anyone can still enter any values that apply to them. Tesla financing partners are now also offering longer-term loans (72 months instead of 63) that will "reduce the monthly payment considerably," Tesla says. Tesla's new numbers, featuring less pixie dust, are "a monthly rate of $580 taking only gasoline savings into account" and, if you buy the car for business and we assume that 70 percent of the miles are for business use, the "effective monthly cost" is just $315. Musk said he believes that financing (or leasing, as most of us call it) is the right way to buy an electric car because, "it really highlights the savings you get form gasoline every month." Musk said that so far, around 20-25 percent of the Model S vehicles sold since the financing options were announced have been financed, and that he expects this number to jump to 60 percent or more in the future. Early birds who jumped at the chance in April don't need to fret, since the improvements to the financial offering will be retroactive to anyone who already took advantage of the Tesla financing. As before, the value guarantee is backed by Musk's personal money and he remains as confident as ever that his company is on the right track. "If we really believe we are making the best car, it should have the best resale value," he said.Continue reading Tesla lowers Model S financing costs, guarantees highest resale value of any luxury sedanTesla lowers Model S financing costs, guarantees highest resale value of any luxury sedan originally appeared on Autoblog Green on Fri, 03 May 2013 14:20:00 EST.
