Kate Upton, Mike Vogel and Christine Woods have joined coming-of-age indie comedy Wild Man. The movie stars Ted Welch (The Help) and George Dalton (Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer) as unlikely friends who meet when Bo (Welch) serves house arrest across the street from Elliott (Dalton).

Wild Man is produced by Jacquie Phillips and Sarena Khan with Brian Adler and co-executive produced by Christopher Barkley and Nicholas Buggs of Bonsai Creative Enterprises. Welch co-wrote the screenplay with Stefanie Black, who serves as co-director with Phillips and has a supporting role in the film. She is repped by Authentic Talent and Literary.

Lea Michele and Kate Upton will star in The Layover, the William H. Macy-directed road trip sex comedy scripted by David Hornsby and Lance Krall. Production is imminent with Keith Kjarval of Unified Pictures and Aaron L. Gilbert of Bron Studios producing. Michele and Upton play a pair of lifelong best friends who decide to avoid their problems by taking a vacation only to find that their plane has been rerouted due to a hurricane warning. To make matters worse, the two friends find themselves battling for the same guy during an extended layover in St. Louis. Macy will play a role in the film as well.

Hornsby and Krall collaborated on the TV series It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, on which Hornsby is writer, executive producer, and co-star.

“The minute I met Lea and Kate, the film began to focus for me,” said Macy, moonlighting from his series Shameless. “They are singular, ambitious funny women in full. This is going to be fun.” Executive producers are Patricia Cox, who worked with Macy on his most recent helming effortRudderless, and Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth Media Finance.

Michele starred in Glee and has reteamed with Ryan Murphy on Scream Queens. Supermodel Upton co-starred with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann in Fox’s The Other Woman. Michele is repped by WME and Untitled Entertainment; Upton by WME and LBI Entertainment and Macy by WME and attorney Barry Greenfield. WME Global will sell worldwide distribution.


This is going to be a road trip to remember!

Lea Michele and Kate Upton have just booked their next vacation and we’re all invited to watch on the big screen!

E! News has learned the two Hollywood stars will play a pair of lifelong best friends who decide to avoid their problems by taking a vacation in The Layover. Their plans, however, will drastically change once a hurricane warning hits town. Oh, and there’s also one guy they both have a crush on. Can you say drama?!

« I have some very exciting news to share…. » Michele tweeted to her fans Wednesday afternoon. « So excited to be working with the amazing @WilliamHMacy & the gorgeous @KateUpton on our new film #TheLayover this spring!!! »

She added, « We’ve already started rehearsals and have been having the best time!!! This is going to be a fun one!!! #TheLayover »

Earlier this week, Macy hinted about a project he would be working on. However, we didn’t exactly know it would be this entertaining.

« And so it begins, » he tweeted while hard at work. « My next project…to be announced soon. » Mystery solved!

This next project will be extra special for Michele as she recently wrapped up her time on Glee after six seasons. Upton’s most recent big-screen project was when she co-starred with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann in The Other Woman.

« The minute I met Lea and Kate, the film began to focus for me, » Macy said in a release to E! News. « They are singular, ambitious funny women in full. This is going to be fun. »


Simple makeup has always worked best for me. I grew up in Florida, and I think that may be part of the reason. I was really involved with showing horses, and that’s actually why I first wore makeup: Before the horse shows, my mom or older sister would help me put on lipstick or some eyeshadow. It was never about pageantry; it was a little confidence boost that helped me feel more put together.

The other reason I usually do more natural makeup is my personality. I’m a talker—and I don’t have a filter. Plus, I’m always smiling. I think if I walked into a room wearing neon or lots of makeup, people would be like, « Whoa, it’s all too much! » So I tone down my makeup for balance.

My everyday look is based on something a makeup artist once told me, which is, « Start with pretty. » I brush out my brows, put on a bit of brown shadow and mascara, and then perfect my skin with Bobbi Brown’s concealer kit. You can always add a lip color and enhance it from there, but if you start with pretty, then it’s more about the woman than the makeup. That’s Bobbi’s philosophy, too. I remember a few years ago when I saw her Pretty Powerful campaign everywhere, and I was like, « She gets it. » Her message has always been that inner beauty comes first, which is how I feel.

Take Instagram. I want to post a #wokeuplikethis photo and have it be what I actually look like waking up. If you’re touching up your photo or putting on makeup before taking a #wokeuplikethis picture, what does that say? If we all toned it down a bit, and weren’t retouching our own photos so much, that might send a message.

Regardless, wearing makeup isn’t the same as retouching—it’s something I do for myself. It’s a look. It completes my outfit. I mean, you buy nice shoes to make an awesome outfit, and it makes you feel good. Putting on makeup is the same.

Good, no, fantastic news! In celebration of the new Bobbi Brown Hot Collection, Kate Upton is taking over the Marie Claire Twitter account on February 24 at 1 p.m. EST. Tweet your beauty questions for Kate to @MarieClaire with the hashtag #KateOnBeauty, and she’ll answer them LIVE!
