Our First Look at The Flash, Supergirl Musical Crossover

flash-supergirl-musical

-These photos from The Flash/Supergirl musical crossover have me excited even though I’ve cooled on TF. I always forget the guy who plays Winn is a legit Broadway star (which is weird because I’ve seen The Last Five Years a bunch, but he doesn’t even seem like the same person in that).  Also, this episode is going to make me ‘ship Barry and Kara, which is probably the opposite of the point. Oopsie!

Tom Hiddleston asked “what should I regret?” when questioned about his romance with Taylor Swift. The tank top, Tom. The correct answer is always the tank top.

George Michael‘s cause of death has been released: he died of natural causes due to liver and heart disease.

Michelle Yeoh will star as Eleanor Young in Crazy Rich Asians. I’m really liking how this adaptation is shaping up so far.

-Can you imagine any other actor getting this into their ADR? Bless Hugh Jackman.

-I liked this article on how “stepping out” — a phrase describing nothing at all — took over celebrity gossip.  Now do one on “shows off” (as in “Actress shows off her baby bump!”) and “canoodling”!

-CW just renewed Riverdale, which I’m increasingly liking (especially when it leans into the ridiculous mystery). The only issue? Archie is dead weight. He’s the new Dawson.

-A new Fleet Foxes song? Yeah, I’ll take that.

-Costars who work out together stay together? (Also, watching Stephen Amell struggle to stay on the stability ball makes me feel better about falling off one last week and landing on my face…)

-Even Milo Ventimiglia doesn’t think there needs to be more Gilmore Girls episodes.

-I love this article on the five things you probably missed when watching Get Out.

-Lainey has more photos of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at their friend’s wedding.

Emma Watson revealed that she used to ruin tons of takes on the Harry Potter movies because she couldn’t stop mouthing her costars’ lines.

Rachel Lindsay has just been cast as the first black Bachelorette and people have lots of opinions, ranging from it’s beyond overdue to it’s too little, too late. Meanwhile, she’s already downplaying it, saying “Even though I’m an African-American woman, it’s no different than any other Bachelorette.”

-Harrison Ford has been involved in another airport incident after he flew too close to a passenger plane while piloting his private plane.

-Here’s the trailer for Apple’s reality series with Gwyneth Paltrow, which is like Shark Tank but with more apps and Jessica Alba.

Ryan Murphy called Glee’s feud between Lea Michele and Naya Riveraa shitstorm of difficulty.” He added, “There were many boys on our show that didn’t get along and you never hear about that. You never hear about that in our culture.” I’m listening…

-Speaking of Ryan Murphy and feuds, here’s the latest trailer for his new show.

-Wow. When the final ratings come out, there’s a chance SNL will be the No. 1 broadcast series of last week in the A18-49 demo.

Mandy Moore is having a moment. She stars in the Dawes’ new music video, and Vulture just called her presence on This Is Us “a stroke of ingenious casting.”

Hugh Jackman shared a personal sunscreen PSA after another skin cancer treatment.

-Is Angelina Jolie finally getting a publicist?

-If you’re not already OD’ing on all the Girls press this week, I really liked this writers roundtable.

Kerry Washington might be in the next Deadpool movie.

Robert Pattinson should probably go ahead and burn this sweater.

-I don’t watch TVD anymore, but this BTS clip is very cute.

-They just released the trailer for Everything Everything and it’s giving me all the squees! I adored that book. (The author tweet replied to me yesterday, which also squeed me up.)

Ryan Reynolds Gets Another Chance

-This week’s Variety cover story is all about how Deadpool saved Ryan Reynolds career. It absolutely did — but you gotta wonder how many better actors will never get as many chances as he did.

Brad Pitt only had one visit with his kids over Christmas, says a source.

Nicki Minaj got ahead of the gossip cycle and confirmed her split from Meek Mill on Twitter.

-This is terrifying: Jennifer Lopez has been granted a temporary restraining order against an alleged stalker.

Sterling K. Brown has joined the incredibly stacked cast of Marvel’s Black Panther. I love this movie already.

-Only five days into the new year and already there’s a George Clooney baby rumour. And this one features twins!

-There’s no way the show Young Pope is going to be half as entertaining as all the Young Pope memes that crossed my TL today…

-It turns out Drew Barrymore‘s family sitcom on Netflix has secretly been a zombie show all along. But it costars Timothy Olyphant and Nathan Fillion, and it’s from the guy who made Better Off Ted, so I’m down.

-It’s Always Sunny’s aired a musical episode about anti-black racism that was, well, racist.

Meryl Streep showed up today to help Viola Davis get her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and her speech was lovely.

Lady Gaga and Katy Perry have been dragged into the legal battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke.

Alexis Bledel is in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale (a fact that critics were specifically embargoed from revealing until now).

-I feel really bad for Janina Gavankar, who talks about the about the tricky task of joining Sleepy Hollow after Nicole Beharie’s exit. She’s an actress I like a lot, but there’s no way in hell I’m watching that show ever again.

-I really liked this take on how Emma Stone‘s La La Land performance transcends her character’s writing. I like Damien Chazelle but I wish he’d drop the “artistic male genuis’ career threatened by love interest” trope. Whiplash had the same issue.

-Not sure how I feel about this: The CW is developing a new Charmed reboot from the team behind Jane The Virgin. It’s a reimagining set in 1976. (Holly Marie Combs responded classily on Twitter.)

-Shh, Boy George. Just shh.

-The week after the holiday break is always tough. Here’s a video of Tom Hardy reading a bedtime story to a dog to pull you through.

-Remember when Hugh Jackman was adamant Logan was going to be his last movie as Wolverine? Yeah, maybe not.

-This story about past Miss Golden Globes has lots of cute tidbits, like Mavis Spencer talking about how one of The Hangover actors fractured her foot during the 2010 ceremony, and Greer Grammer telling Prince which way to exit the stage. “He just gave me this look like, ‘Who are you?’ and exited in the opposite direction.”
