With the long-running " Harry Potter" franchise beginning to draw to a close, the three young actors who star in the epic fantasy films are finding themselves at the dawn of a new stage of their careers. Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, is preparing to star in February in a Broadway revival of the Frank Loesser musical classic "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," in addition to lining up new movie roles. Emma Watson, who plays the studious Hermione Granger, is attending Brown University in Rhode Island and will appear in the movie "My Week With Marilyn," set for release next year.

Everything Harry Potter fans ever knew about love is a lie. Seven years after the beloved “Potter” books came to an end, author J.K. Rowling said she regrets pairing heroine Hermione Granger and guy pal Ron Weasley.   In a soon-to-be-published interview with Emma Watson, who played Granger, Rowling admitted that she thinks Potter and Granger would have been a better match. "I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. That's how it was conceived, really," Rowling said in the interview.

But series creator Greg Garcia, whose "The Millers" also airs on CBS, pushed to get people to see his other comedy show, which will never have a chance to compete for ratings.

NEW YORK -- Some preteen stars, the kind you want to avoid, are divas in training. Some are picture-perfect. Make that almost perfect.

Should Hermione Granger have gotten together with Ron Weasley? J.K. Rowling used to think so -- but now it appears she's changed her mind. Fuller details are forthcoming in an interview that the Sunday Times is trumpeting with the headline: "JK Admits Harry Should Have Wed Hermione. " “I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. That's how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron,” Rowling explains.

Everybody in "Driving Lessons" is working very hard to show how affecting and touching their movie can be. Indeed, the collective effort invested in this ragged mongrel of a coming-of-age story may con even the most jaded moviegoer into thinking there's something profound being put forth.
