A Wrinkle In Time Stars Cover Time

wrinkle-in-time

-A Wrinkle In Time stars Mindy Kaling, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Storm Reid grace the new Time cover.

-Is Brad Pitt getting ready to debut a new girlfriend?

-Wow, the backlash to The Last Jedi came hard and fast. Most of the criticism I saw on Twitter was about its failure to answer questions The Force Awakens raised, which is just a big shrug emoji for me.

-Also, I really liked this article on Rey and Kylo (and I can’t believe that people are actually shipping them).

-Speaking of ships, here were the top 5 shipper moments on TV this year.

Sophia Bush opened up about her shocking exit from Chicago P.D. I love this part: “[I told them] I’m giving you 23 episodes notice. I’m giving you that much time. So there will be no conversation in which I was hysterical, emotional, in which I was being a quote irrational female or whatever you want to put on it. I’m literally sitting in front of you like cool as a cucumber. If this has to be like a big swinging d— competition, I promise you I will win.”

-You know a TV episode has gone off the rails when the star of Riverdale has to reassure fans that she was was fully involved in a striptease scene.

-Hollywood has clearly run out of ideas. NBC is eyeing a revival of The Office, with a mix of old and new castmembers.

-This gallery of Prince Harry as a third wheel made me laugh.

Rose McGowan  dragged actresses like Meryl Streep for planning to wear black in protest at the Golden Globes, and then Amber Tamblyn dragged Rose for dragging Meryl, and then Meryl was like “um, what’s with all the dragging?” I don’t disagree with Rose that the black dress this is kind of pointless. I like the suggestion that a big name actress take the founder of #MeToo as her date.

-The director of Bad Santa has come forward to say he was also discouraged from hiring Mira Sorvino. Can she sue Miramax for damages?

-Here’s a great suggestion: hire women whose careers were destroyed by Weinstein.

-God good, how has no one stopped Matt Damon from talking yet?!? Now he’s saying that when it comes to whether or not he’d work with someone accused of sexual misconduct: “You know, it would be a case-by-case basis.” He also insists we aren’t talking enough about men in Hollywood who aren’t predators. GAH!! He needs a time out.

-This is a great read on how Hollywood’s sexual offenders should face the law. This was the one thing that struck me about Damon’s initial comments (beyond being fed up with men’s knee-jerk reaction to immediately feel the need to qualify/rank offences, as if misconduct isn’t all stemming from the same systematic, power tripping issues), was his comment about how Louis CK has already paid such a “price” that Damon is sure he won’t do it again. What price? The loss of a career (that btw was a privledge, not a right?). That’s not a price, that’s a consequence. Dude exposed himself to unwilling participants. That’s a criminal offence. He should be rejoicing for escaping jail time.

Mario Batali sent an email apology for his “wrong” behavior that included a link to a recipe for cinnamon rolls in the same email.

-Actress Amy Smart is defending husband and HGTV star Carter Oosterhouse after he was accused of sexual misconduct.

Jason Priestley recalled the time he punched Harvey Weinstein in the face at a Golden Globes afterparty in 1995.

-When Kate Winslet started talking about working with Woody Allen during the LA Times roundtable, the faces Margot Robbie and Jessica Chastain made were priceless.

Terry Crews took to Twitter on Friday to accuse William Morris Endeavor (WME) of “retaliation” and spying on his family during his ongoing legal battle with the agency.

Nelly wants to take legal action to clear his name after rape case was dropped.

-Amazon just passed on all three of its pilots from the fall season. That’s depressing.

-Watch Jodie Foster reprise her Silence of the Lambs role to investigate Trump-Russia ties in a Late Show skit.

-Director Tracy Letts says everyone was nervous on the set of The Post, except Carrie Coon. “She just has ice water in her veins. She’s like an assassin. She’s the one person who was not nervous, and I think everybody found that a little disconcerting.” God, I love her.

-I totally forgot that one of the girls in Parenthood once convinced all of her costars to be in a music video, and even got Michael B Jordan to rap in it. It holds up.

Rachel Bloom installed a ball pit in her house and she’s my new hero.

-This is a very cute clip of a guy who proposed with Neflix’s help. “Drew Barrymore said my name!”

-This clip of Michael Shannon on At Home with Amy Sedaris is everything.

-The Ocean’s 8 trailer drops tomorrow but here’s a 15-second teaser. Are they eating at Veselka? God, I love this movie already.

-Here’s the trailer for Clint Eastwood’s real-life drama The 15:17 to Paris, starring Judy Greer and Jenna Fischer.

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik Make Waves on Vogue

gigi-zayn-vogue-cover-2017

-Vogue did a cover about gender fluidity, though I don’t think hetero couple Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik talking about swapping clothes is probably the right way to do it.

-How the hell is Blake Lively in talks for a spy franchise? The fact that she continues to get movie work while Leighton Meester doesn’t is insane.

Gwyenth Paltrow‘s GOOP is defending its health advice and doctors with a series of posts revisiting its most controversial topics and “offering our contributing M.D.’s a chance to articulate theirs, in a respectful and substantive manner.” First up: those jade eggs you’re supposed to stick in your vagina. (Spoiler: the doc gets very defensive.)

Donnie Wahlberg left a $2,000 tip at a Waffle House, proving his still the best Wahlberg.

Arcade Fire has a new song out called “Electric Blue.”

-Thousands of confidential documents were released in Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont‘s lawsuit against AMC, and while everyone is focused on his obscene emails (which are definite worth a read), it’s the financial info and behind-the-scenes scoop that has me intrigued. After Darabont moved the second season to one set location — a farmhouse — to accommodate the network’s insane budget cuts, AMC executives demanded to see ALL of the season’s scripts up front before shooting. No show has those ready. I was also shocked by the bonuses for Emmy and Golden Globe awards ($25,000 for each nomination, $50,000 for each win).

-Speaking of Emmys, the nominations came out this morning and they felt like a big step backwards compared to last year. The biggest oversight is the lack of love for The Leftovers, which blew away everything else on TV this season. Carrie Coon didn’t even get a nod (though she did for Fargo, which no one is even talking about anymore). Others feeling the lack of love: The Americans, Insecure, Justin Theroux, Rami Malek (who won last year), The Good Place. And who the hell is still voting for House of Cards?! There were some nice surprises though, including noms for Pamela Aldon, Aziz Anzari, Donald Glover, Milo Ventimiglia, Atlanta, Kimmy Schmidt, Stranger Things, and This is Us.

-At least Twitter’s reactions to the Emmys snub of The Leftovers are hilarious.

-Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry and his BFF, This Is Us’ Sterling K. Brown, called each other and “screamed a little bit” after getting their Emmy noms this morning.

Ezra Miller‘s The Flash teams up with Batman and Wonder Woman in a new Justice League photo.

-Wonder Woman is holding better than any superhero movie in 15 years.

John Oliver told Stephen Colbert that he now wishes he hadn’t made his “Stupid Watergate” joke. “We are turbo-f***ed.”

Brie Larson tries to survive her unconventional parents, played by Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson, in The Glass Castle trailer.

Jon Hamm Reveals Why He’ll Never Join Social Media

instyle-july-jon-hamm

-I’m a big fan of Jon Hamm (have you ever heard him on comedy podcasts? He’s a goddamn delight), but this interview with InStyle is kinda … ugh. He calls Snapchat filters “the visual equivalent of masturbating”? Actually sir, the the visual equivalent of masturbating is seeing photos of you in tight pants.

-Also, was Jon Hamm was flirting with Kate Beckinsale at the Baby Driver premiere? Probably not, but I can dream.

Rebel Wilson’s defamation case continues with accusations of pre interview lies, and a fixation on Walt Disney.

-This is refreshingly frank: Milla Jovovich almost quit Resident Evil when Michelle Rodriguez was cast. “[They] rewrote the script for her. It pretty much made my character ‘the girl,’ and Rain was ‘the guy.’ She got all of my big action scenes, and she became like Alice. And then Alice became this tag-along.”

-Was this week’s TV cancellations the first indication of cracks in Netflix’s facade?

-HBO may push Game of Thrones’ final season to 2019.

-Here’s what a defiant Kathy Griffin said at her Trump news conference. (Spoiler: She’s not backing down.)

Brandy is home resting after being hospitalized for losing consciousness on an airplane. I really hope the disturbing blind items that have been floating around aren’t the reason for this.

-This Rihanna-Kevin Durant feud is the only kind of basketball drama I can get behind. I like that she’s basically morphing into Jack Nicholson before our eyes…

-A lot of movie trailers use Imagine Dragons songs. Like, a lot.

-Wonder Woman scored $11M on Thursday night, making it the best preview night for a movie by a female director. I really hope it cracks $100M this weekend. I also hope people understand what they’re talking about when they compare it to other superhero films. It cost $120M to make unlike, save BtvS, which cost $250M.

Tom Cruise revealed the Top Gun sequel title: Maverick .

Scott Wolf takes an ’emotional’ look back at Party Of Five’s intervention episode. Oh god, I remember watching this with my mom and we just bawled. When Claudia tells him that she won’t see him anymore? “I love you the best.” Gah!

-This trailer for Amazon’s The Last Tycoon, Matt Bomer’s new period drama.

-Here’s the trailer for Strange Weather starring Holly Hunter and Carrie Coon.
