Toby Regbo is ready to rule your heart on The CW drama “Reign.” We love a guy who feels comfortable rocking old school garb. (Men in tights are way underrated.) We’re hoping to see Toby don some on the series, which kicks off this week. By the way, he happens to be this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Toby, and keep reading for more details about him!
ital stats: The 21-year-old hails from London. And, even from a young age, Toby pursued an acting career, performing in school plays. He also attended the Young Blood Theatre Company.
Where you might have already seen him: Before landing on the CW, Toby appeared in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” as Young Dumbledore. His other notable roles include the TV mini-series “The Town,” “Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You,” “Treasure Island” and “One Day.”
Why you should take notice of him now: On “Reign,” he’s set to play Prince Francis, one of the suitors that the show’s leading lady, Mary, Queen of Scots (played by Adelaide Kane), is torn between. The historical drama will plant Mary in the middle of a love triangle with Francis and his brother, Bash (played by the equally dishy Torrance Combs). Who will she pick? Well, we can’t wait to tune in and find out.
In addition to “Reign,” he’s slated to appear alongside Angelina Jolie in “Maleficent.”
Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Toby by gawking at the photo above!

Windy City Times: You have a new movie coming out Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You.
Peter Gallagher: Yes, it is a great book by Peter Cameron. It is about a young boy coming of age, starring Toby Regbo. He is a beautiful kid and acted in Harry Potter. He plays my son who is 17, turning 18 and figuring out what he is all about. Marcia Gay Harden plays his mother and we are divorced. Ellen Burstyn is in it and Lucy Liu. It is directed by Roberto Faenza from a lovely script and is a real indie. We shot it in New York.
Windy City Times: When does it come out?
Peter Gallagher: We are going to find out very soon, in the next couple of weeks, I think.

The world premiere of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the final instalment in J.K. Rowling’s fantasy saga, will take place at London’s Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square on July 7, Warner Bros has announced.
The red carpet event will see the Potter cast and filmmakers arrive at Trafalgar Square before heading along to Leicester Square’s cinemas to watch the first showing of Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
Special areas will be reserved within Trafalgar Square for fans and competition winners from around the globe. It will mark the first time the London landmark has hosted a movie premiere.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said of the event: “For the last decade we’ve been gripped by the on-screen battle between Harry Potter and his arch enemy Lord Voldemort and this is one of the most eagerly awaited films in history.
“As befits a great British triumph, I can think of no better venue than the iconic surroundings of Trafalgar Square in which to stage the most spectacular of send offs for this dramatic finale.”

The cast also includes ‘Harry Potter’ stars Shirley Henderson and Toby Regbo and ‘Ashes to Ashes’ star Philip Glenister.
Filming is also to take place in Puerto Rico and the miniseries will premiere on US television in early 2012.
I’m very excited about this news.

An oldish article.
A host of celebrities turned out for the Art of Elysium Halloween Ball on Saturday, October 30, in LA, and LookToTheStars.org’s Hollywood Insider Maxine Tatlonghari was there for this exclusive report.
Halloween in Hollywood is kind of a big deal. After all, we have access to some of the best costume departments in the world! So choosing where to spend it can be a big decision. Last Saturday night (October 30), Be Cause and The Art of Elysium held its 5th Annual Halloween Ball to benefit children being treated for illness and serious injury … and this is where we chose to kick off our night.
The Party was held at brand new venue 1616 in downtown LA. I’m a West Hollywood girl, so going this far east is a bit of a trek by LA standards… but this edgy new venue was a total treat. It lent itself to a good lay-out to separate the Silent Auction from the dancing.Other attendees at the Ball included: Jennifer Stone, Liz Friedman (LA Ink) dressed as Kat Von D, Ryan Eggold (90210) fairy prisoner, Jessica Stroup (90210) dressed as a bumble bee, Carter Bays (How I Met Your Mother), Michael Raven (Celebrity Jeweler) , Katie Cleary (actress), Charlene Amoia, Toby Regbo and many more.
It’s a good thing that 18-year-old actor Toby Regbo was a quick study-he had an allergic reaction to his first drama class. “They had us stand in front of a mirror and pretend to be a plant,” he recalls. “I thought, ‘Oh, shit. Is this what drama is going to be like?’?” Impatience paid off for the London teen, who found another theater group run by an agent who got him into auditions. Two guest spots on British TV helped him get cast as the young Dumbledore in the highly anticipated final two Harry Potter films–a.k.a. one of the rare golden tickets in the cinematic lottery. Part one lands in theaters this month. “The part I play means so much to certain people,” he reflects. “They send you very intense mail, saying everything from ‘I hope it goes well for you’ to ‘Don’t mess it up or I’ll kill you.’?” Having played overburdened adolescents in both the 2009 film Mr. Nobody and the West End play Tusk Tusk, Regbo seems to be cornering the market on young alienated types. He will star alongside Ellen Burstyn and Marcia Gay Harden in the upcoming comedy Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You. In the movie, Regbo plays James Sveck, a sexually confused high school senior who rejects just about everything. “It’s searingly accurate about what it’s like to be this age,” says Regbo. “Because James is so self-aware, he can never invest himself in anything fun.” Aside from overinvested Harry Potter fans, Regbo is also acclimating to the online scrutiny that has come with his father’s tendency to google him. “I was at the BFI London Film Festival and this photo of me got put up online,” he says. “My father sent me a link to the article, which was from a website called something like hairandbeautycelebrities.com. It was analyzing my haircut. And it had been cut by my grandmother about 20 minutes before I got to the premiere.”
And there is a gorgeous photoshoot to go with the article

Elda Ferri and Allen Bain announced today the wrap of principal photography on Director Roberto Faenza’s “Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You” based on Peter Cameron’s award-winning novel of the same name. Praised by critics and readers alike, Cameron’s 2007 novel has been favorably compared to “The Catcher in the Rye.”
A heartfelt New York comedy, the film was shot entirely in New York and stars Toby Regbo (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows”) in his first lead role as well as veteran actors Marcia Gay Harden, Peter Gallagher, Ellen Burstyn and Stephen Lang and features Deborah Ann Woll (“True Blood”), Aubrey Plaza (“Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World”) and Lucy Liu.
“Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You” is a funny and tender film about James Sveck (Regbo), a vulnerable teenager with a deep appreciation for the world and no idea how to live in it. James is the child of divorced parents living in Manhattan (Harden and Gallagher). While his estranged parents may be better served examining their own lives, they seem more content conspiring to guide him in a more “normal” direction.
James, however, rejects all the assumptions that govern the adult world around him, including the expectation that he will go college in the fall. Articulate, sensitive, and cynical, he would much prefer to move to an old house in the country and spend his life reading books and learning long forgotten trades.

The drama tells the tale of an isolated youngster (Toby Regbo) who must contend with his dysfunctional family the summer before he heads to college. Ellen Burstyn, Marcia Gay Harden, Lucy Liu and Stephen Lang are already on board.
The film, which is being directed by Roberto Faenza, centers on a recent high school grad (to be played by Toby Regbo) who feels out of step among his affluent peers despite being raised in a privileged albeit broken home by his mother.
