Pitch Perfect 2 wouldn't be complete without Skylar Astin, and we're glad it's finally been confirmed that he's reprising the role of Jesse for the movie's sequel. The 26-year-old actor will, of course, be playing Beca's (Anna Kendrick) opposite in the movie. His co-star Ben Platt, who plays his roommate Benji in the movie, even tweeted a photo of them during the shooting.

Speaking of Pitch Perfect 2, Just Jared Jr. spotted the cast in Louisiana while filming. Looks like they're super ready for this highly-anticipated movie, right? And we totes love their looks, too!

Wondering how One Direction's Liam Payne starts conversations with young ladies? His bandmate Harry Styles revealed that uses pick up lines, cheesy pick up lines. Harry revealed in the interview, "I once went out with Liam and he has some funny chat-up lines. He went up to a girl and said, 'Do you have a plaster because I hurt my knee when I fell for you?!'" Ahhh! As if he needed pick up lines to start a conversation with us. Better load up on Band-Aids for next year's concert. You know, just in case you bump into him. ;)
