Thanks to Stonesourwolf on Tumblr, I’ve added 4 outtakes from a photoshoot Dylan did at the Sundance Film Festival 2012.  Check them out in the gallery below!

As I posted in my last update, Dylan and the cast of “Teen Wolf” along with other MTV shows participated in Restore the Shore.  They called back people who helped and donated to help restore Seaside Heights in New Jersey.  You can help donate by texting SHORE to 85944.  A few pictures from the show have been added to the gallery. More pictures will be added as they become available!  And being from Jersey myself, I would like to thank everyone who has donated!

MTV (a division of Viacom Inc., NASDAQ: VIAB) today announced that dozens of stars, artists and organizations have joined in the effort to #restoretheshore and help rebuild Seaside Heights, New Jersey – the heart of the Jersey Shore, which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Generations have grown up enjoying the iconic Seaside boardwalk, but with the city condemned and many local businesses and homes ruined, Seaside needs urgent help to get back on its feet. Thankfully, some of entertainment’s biggest stars are answering the call to action and will be part of MTV’s “Restore the Shore,” a one-hour fundraising special to air live at 11pm ET (tape-delayed PT) on MTV, MTV.com, MTV mobile and MTV radio on Thursday, November 15th.

From 4 pm until midnight (ET) on Thursday, the cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” – as well as stars from other top MTV shows including “Awkward,” “Teen Wolf,” “Teen Mom,” “The Challenge,” and “The Real World” – will be live in MTV’s Times Square studio, calling donors to thank them for giving. Unlike a conventional telethon where viewers call in and hope to speak with a celebrity, MTV’s “Restore the Shore” will feature stars personally calling individuals who donate via Indiegogo at RestoretheShore.MTV.com or make a $10 donation by texting SHORE to 85944. All funds raised will go to Architecture for Humanity, an internationally recognized non-profit that led rebuilding efforts in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. They are now setting out to help rebuild the famed boardwalk, local businesses and homes in Seaside Heights ravaged by the storm.

Everyone who donates $25 or more will receive an exclusive MTV “Restore the Shore” song bundle, which includes 30 songs from the past six seasons of “Jersey Shore.” Online crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.com has created a special campaign donation page (RestoretheShore.Indiegogo.com) for MTV’s “Restore the Shore,” and in conjunction with PayPal.com, will be waiving 100% of the fees on all donations. The MTV Shop, as well as select Modell’s locations in NY, NJ, PA, DE and modells.com, will be selling the official MTV “Restore the Shore” t-shirt for $20, with all net proceeds going to Architecture for Humanity’s Seaside rebuilding fund. In addition, Viacom will donate $100,000 to Architecture for Humanity in support of the “Restore the Shore” fund, as part of its $1 million Viacommunity pledge to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

I found this article on International Business Times and thought this was funny/cute since Dylan has a crush on Selena Gomez! Other choices that the site put together ranges from Shia LaBeouf to Gregg Sulkin!  Check it out below!

Dylan had been mentioning Selena Gomez quite a lot during his “Teen Wolf” interviews. Given Dylan has a huge crush on Gomez, it’s obvious the star is trying to catch her attention. Now that Gomez is back on the market, Dylan should probably make the “wolf” moves now more than ever.


I’ve added 2 outtakes from when Dylan was featured in the November 2012 issue of Teen Vogue.  Also, they released a behind the scenes video from the photoshoot!  It looks like Dylan had fun and hopefully more outtakes will be released!  You can view both the outtakes and the video below!


Glamour: So, were you as awkward around girls in high school as your character in the movie, Dave, was?

Dylan O’Brien: Absolutely! I wasn’t so smooth. I was very shy with girls and was always, you know, ruddy cheeked around them. I was always loving them but never had any idea how to tell them that, so I’m very similar to Dave in that sense.

Glamour: So, has that changed at all?

Dylan O’Brien: Not so much, in all honesty. Obviously times change and as you get older, you learn from every experience. But I’m always a little innately shy when I first talk to a girl, and I think I always will be! But I think that’s a good thing. You don’t want to lose that.

Glamour: Well said! Now tell us, what’s your current obsession?

Dylan O’Brien: One Direction!

Glamour: Who’s your favorite?

Dylan O’Brien: Oh, come on, is that even a question? Harry Styles, of course! He’s the next Mick Jagger.

Glamour: Is there a movie you’re so obsessed with you know every word?

Dylan O’BrienLiar, Liar. It’s phenomenal–a 10 out of 10 movie.

Glamour: What album are you loving right now?

Dylan O’Brien: Jack White is really cool.

Glamour: What book are you obsessed with?

Dylan O’BrienThe Art of Fielding. I love baseball–Moneyball was my favorite book when I was 13.

Glamour: What’s your idea of a favorite meal?

Dylan O’Brien: Chicken cutlets, rice pilaf, and broccoli.

Glamour: That’s very balanced! What about your favorite drink?

Dylan O’Brien: I’m a big root beer guy.

Glamour: Who’s your favorite person to follow on Twitter?

Dylan O’Brien: My mom! She tweets and always retweets what I write. It’s really cute. She has the little egg as her icon.

Glamour: Who’s the first celebrity you were ever obsessed with?

Dylan O’Brien: Growing up, I was in love with Jennifer Aniston from Friends.

Glamour: The next time you have some down time, how would you spend it?

Dylan O’Brien: I’d like to get into some sort of workout regimen so I can properly be healthy and exercise like a normal human being. I seem to not do that… ever.

Dylan and the cast of Teen Wolf  were in Las Vegas to celebrate Tyler Posey’s 21st Birthday!  It looks like they had a great time!  You can view the pictures in the gallery below!

TheInsider.com: What was your first impression of this script?
Dylan O’Brien: I just really loved what I got to do as this guy and I loved the dialogue. I almost wanted more of it. I just naturally get the words that Jon [Kasdan, writer/director] writes. I understand the way he speaks and what he’s trying to get across, so I could recite the entire movie by the time we started shooting because we did so much rehearsing.

Insider.com: Did that allow for improv?
Dylan: I wouldn’t tag it as improv because there was no need to go away from the script here, but it was free-range speaking in the sense that I had all the lines down, but I never once worried about specific wording with a sentence. I knew what Jon wanted me to say, but he let me say the words how I thought I should say them. That’s a good way of going about it I think.

Insider.com: What was the rehearsal process like?
Dylan: A few weeks before shooting start, Jon got me and Britt together, and we spent two weeks, just the three of us, running scenes, changing things, talking about everything – not even necessarily about the script. Sometimes it was just about getting to know one another. By the time we got to shooting, Britt and I were so comfortable with one another that it was really easy to keep riffing off that established relationship. It was so comfortable and made us more confident without realizing it. That’s something Jon does amazingly; he instills this quiet confidence in you that makes you feel like no choice is wrong, which lets you feel free.

Insider.com: While the characters are different, Dave and Stiles feel like they could almost be brothers. Is that unique energy something you thought both characters would have or just part of you?
Dylan: I think maybe a bit of both. The energy I give to Stiles and the energy I give to Dave is all intentional. I think maybe it’s because I have an energy inside myself that I don’t necessarily project in real life because I do it with my characters. It’s just something I think I can add to characters, but also, I wouldn’t have done it if it didn’t suit the character.

Insider.com: The movie raises the age old question of whether making mix CDs for a crush is allowed. What’s your opinion?
Dylan: I’m definitely not opposed. There’s no problem with making mixes for a girl. I’m somebody who is as inspired by music as much as the next person. I’ve always played and loved all kinds of music. Sharing something like a mix tape is really sweet. It’s a little piece of your heart at that moment. It’s like saying, “Here’s what I’ve been feeling recently.” Mixes are what you’re all about in that moment.

Hi Dylan! So what made want to get involved with this film? Did you relate to the script? Did you know people like this in high school?

Everybody can relate to it in their own way and I was very similar to it in the sense that I was kind of lovestruck with girls always, and always had a funny time with girls because I was shy, but had strong feelings that could very easily crush. And you know, when you’re that age you just don’t know what to do with all of that. So that, for me, was kind of a very personal and relatable thing that was specific to the story and specific to my life. I even had a friend who I was like in love with who was just my friend. So when I read the script, I loved it so much because it was such a nice drawback to something that was still so fresh in my mind. I was 19 when I did the movie, and this was all two years beforehand. It was all still so fresh with me. So I think I was able to connect to it really easily.

What was the most challenging thing about playing Dave? Anything you wanted to over-prepare for?

I don’t think I over-prepared or anything. I think the challenge was playing a very honest character and a very honest storyline. For me, as a person, I’m very internal. I’m very kind of aware of myself and hesitant to open up. So to play a character who instinctively, without even realizing it, opens up and wears all of his emotions, and is very external in his thought and his perception of things, just playing a very honest version of yourself in a way was a challenge.

How much of your portrayal of Dave was written on the page and how much of it did you get to play with a little bit?

It was a perfect balance, I would say, between Jon’s written dialogue and my adlibbing habit. Because Jon’s words would always kind of fit into my mouth just right. And he let me freely speak in the sense that I could recite the entire film by the time we started shooting because we rehearsed it so much. It was just kind of however I was saying it. It was pretty loose in regards to, not improving, but being able to say the lines how I would say them and just talk how I would talk. I think that was a very important thing for him. He wanted us to talk to each other how we would actually talk and he captured that in the writing. And it only got more collaborative as we all came together and he started changing things when he heard us speaking and saying the lines. Some things would work and some things wouldn’t, and eventually it kind of came together to be the characters. I was always very comfortable and very understanding of Jon’s words he put on the page. So I would never discard them ever, but they inspired me to say other things or say them in a different way.
