Vancouver native Bronson Pelletier has been cast in "a significant role" in the Twilight sequel New Moon, the Toronto Star reported.

Memorabilia once owned by sci-fi icon Forrest J. Ackerman and slated to be auctioned by Profiles in History will go on display at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, March 8, from 3-4 p.m., including the Dracula ring worn by Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula; Lugosi's robe from The Raven; a cape made for Lugosi in 1932 and used many times for his stage portrayal of Dracula; and other items.

The Web site formerly known as SyFy Portal has completely rebranded and redesigned
and will now be known as Airlock Alpha.

Tori Spelling will guest-star in the March 12 episode of The CW's Smallville, and star Tom Welling will go behind the camera for the March 26 episode, which he will direct.
