Let’s face it, even the best of us have a dark side. The same goes for some of our most beloved literary heroes (some a little more than others). Whether their antics finally caught up with them, or there was simply nowhere left to run, an alternate universe exists in which these characters were apprehended, locked up, and sentenced for their crimes within literature. At least we can take comfort in knowing they got to request their own last meals before signing off.

There’s no doubt about it, Molly Ringwald is best known for her work as a young actress in John Hughes films like Pretty In Pink, Sixteen Candles, and The Breakfast Club. Despite a steady acting career since, Ringwald will always be best known for the films she starred in during the mid-’80s. Of course, this doesn’t seem to bother the actress too much, and she’s even branched out into other areas, writing both a non-fiction book about finding "the pretty" (Getting The Pretty Back), and a book of short stories (When It Happens To You). Still an icon, Ringwald has done her fair share of literary adaptations as well, from comics and horror to YA adaptations in the works. And we’ve got the best of them here for you.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and while that might mean fancy dinner dates for some, for others there is nothing more romantic than curling up on the couch with some popcorn and bad TV. Romantic comedies are an obvious choice for February the 14th, and many less cheese-inclined lovers are choosing to indulge in horror flicks, but we’ve got another suggestion for your V-Day viewing: terrible reality shows about love.

With his dark hair, flawless bone structure and twinkling eyes, it’s no wonder that Tom Hiddleston has a legion of fans around the world…and his acting ability doesn’t hurt, either! This dapper Brit has won a Golden Globe, an Empire Award, an MTV Movie Award, and more. Not bad for a career that doesn’t yet span twenty years (and that’s not including his work on the stage, either). Clearly, there’s much more to Mr. Hiddleston than just his dashing good looks and a heaping dose of charm. Don’t be surprised if this Cambridge-educated actor ends up holding an Oscar before too long.
