-Meanwhile, has any male comedian besides Jason Alexander spoken out yet? I’m really disappointed by a lot of my faves.

-Also, this piece on the history of terrible comedians is worth reading. But I’m still I’m not worried about TV comedy. At all.

-This article about what it means to be a difficult actor versus a difficult actress is worth your time.

-Speaking of difficult actors, here’s an interesting read on how Jared Leto has ruined method acting. It’s “become more about ego and marketing than good performances.” (On the plus side, maybe actors will stop talking about their “craft” and “process” in interviews.)

Leslie. Jones. Has. Landed. In. Rio.

-The TCAs saved my favourite network for last. Lots of goodies from The CW dropped today, including that a character on one of the superhero shows will come outDolph Lundgren will star as Arrow’s villain during their last year of flashbacks, and The Flash and Supergirl are planning a musical crossover that may include Arrow and Legends cast members. Amell has already bowed out, but if we can get a song between Victor Garber, Jesse L Martin, John Barrowman and the Glee alums, I’ll be happy. Remember when Grant Gustin did “Smooth Criminal” and made us all forget that we were supposed to hate his character?
