WHILE some Home And Away stars get attention for strange goings-on with bikies or tasteless sex tapes, others are on the verge of making it big in Hollywood.

Previous Summer Bay stars like Isabel Lucas, Isla Fisher, Melissa George and Chris Hemsworth are all making movies in LA. So TV Week has picked four up-and-comers they believe are also ready for the big time. Todd Lasance, Tessa James, Rebecca Breeds and David Jones-Roberts have stars in their eyes.

Roberts told TV Week (on news stands tomorrow) that Hemsworth's career has been his inspiration. "He got straight into work after coming off Home And Away," Roberts said. "He did Star Trek and has just been cast as the lead in the new Marvel Comics movie, Thor."

James looks up to Melissa George: "Because she's been there almost 10 years and is still going strong and working all the time. [Also], she's never given up and that's just so inspiring."SH

It seems MTV is getting paranoid about losing its hottest property, Ruby Rose. Since joining Ten's 7pm Project, the network has been putting its foot down. She can't be seen in any promo pictures alone and must be billed as "MTV's Ruby Rose". MTV is reluctant to approve photos of its star, straining relationships with the media. Insiders say Rose is a dream but her people are a nightmare. Which begs the question, will they be able to keep her? GTN

ROVE'S resident comedy dork, Ryan Shelton, has upset the goons shielding Katie Holmes at Melbourne's Docklands studio, where she is filming a horror flick with Guy Pearce.

Sheldon and his fellow NOVA radio show hosts, Monty and Wippa, managed to fool security with what they admit were "pretty dodgy disguises" and drove around the film set for about 10 minutes in a golf buggy, much to the anger of security guards and the entertainment of photographers. However, the prank was cut short when guards gave Shelton his marching orders. They showed none of the good humour that authority figures display when faced with Chaser-type stunts. "Katie's security are really overbearing," a source told S. "It's not going down well with her." In contrast, Holmes has been smiling at snappers and is said to be annoyed at her oppressive security detail.AT
