The reaction to this news was sometimes positive, sometimes negative...but just recently, Rowling took the time to respond to a fan who had a less than positive response. "Thank you for writing Harry Potter," the fan tweeted at Rowling. "I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is gay because I can't see him in that way.
Poor Ron Weasley! The "Harry Potter" character (played by Rupert Grint in the films) can't seem to catch a break when it comes to his creator, author J.K. Rowling.

It seems like such a simple film, according to its synopsis: “While attending a party at James Franco's house, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and many other celebrities are faced with the apocalypse.” No big deal, right? Straight forward. Intriguing. And yet, this trailer can go down as one of the most action-packed and hysterically funny in ages. Note: This is most definitely hilarious, but not safe for workplace viewings. Unless you work at a really cool place. This film (which Seth Rogan cleverly drew attention to in his April Fools joke) boasts just about everything you can imagine.
