I am insanely honored to announce that I am writing/acting in a movie that Seth Rogen is attached to star in and Adam McKay is attached to direct. That is obviously the coolest sentence I’ve ever written. These humans are heroes to me and now I get to play in the same world as Seth, Adam, Evan Goldberg, Point Grey, Gary Sanchez and Good Universe. This is going to be fucking awesome. Seth, Evan and Adam’s quotes from the press release say it best-

Rogen and Goldberg: “Every 2,000 years, the planets of our galaxy align in a perfect line that funnels the cosmic energies of the universe to flow into one perfect comedic collaboration. The time is now. This is that project. Nothing will ever be the same. McKay and Schwartz are real smart, well-endowed guys, and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with them.”

McKay: “Evan and Seth have been doing amazing things and we’re so excited to work with them. Ben, not so much. Most of my problems with him are personal ones, but I have to give it up. He did come up with a great idea.”

Carter Covingotn AfterEllen Interview

Here’s the talk I did today; available to watch via live stream now at the Tamaraind Institute's UNM portal. Just click on the above link to access the video presentation.  

So honored to be invited to speak to the UNM Fine Art Department through tamarind institute(Tumblr). Was super nervous and probably said things I shouldn’t have (and I apologize in advance for all of that). Overall, it seemed everyone in attendance enjoyed it, hope you do as well. 

Thanks for all the support, everyone.

The film’s called The Riot Club and it’s about this dining society at Oxford University.
This is a club based on real clubs that actually exist, and basically they have four dinners every year, and what they do is they go there and they just trash the place.
That’s their thing, you know, they book private rooms and then they go and they trash it. Eat dinner, get up to lots of terrible stuff and then they just smash the place, and they thrown down money and they go ‘Well we can afford it, why not?’
It’s just all about entitlement, but this really happens, and it’s kinda quite scary.
—  Douglas Booth explains The Riot Club 'in a PG version without giving the ending away' on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show
In the end, listening to 5 Seconds Of Summer on album just doesn’t do them the same justice as seeing them live. On record, they’re a little too polished, but live they’re gritty and dirty and just a whole lot of freaking fun. They let the performance take them away and they push their tempos and their volumes to the brink right up to that breaking point and it is a total treat to see live. 5SOS have proven themselves to be a seriously big deal, and everyone should give them a chance. If you don’t, you’ll be depriving yourself of one helluva time.

Last night I made my first guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the movie This Is Where I Leave You! An enormous thank you to everyone over at JKL for having me, it was an honor. Jimmy is so hilarious and kind, I had so much fun. Here’s a clip from last night’s show of me chatting with Jimmy about an awkward moment I had acting with the legend Robert De Niro.

So I’ve heard the opinion that the articles are fine because what was actually said (in both cases) was humble and charming and fine. I agree, to an extent. The articles are fine. The headlines, on the other hand, are awful.

I’ll give you some advice. Don’t read the comments, especially on the articles about Harry comparing One Direction to the Beatles. They are filled with rage, and people who believe in Harry’s public image (and apparently didn’t read the article). It’s ghastly. (And a reminder that One Direction is a JOKE to a lot of people. The rebranding is going to be difficult).

I do think that having headlines like this is harmful to the brand, because the headline is the only thing that non-fans are going to see. I don’t like it, and I don’t know if this is HJPR purposefully doing something harmful or just making a judgment call I don’t agree with.
