Gillian Anderson Talks X Files on Nerdist

Gillian Anderson is featured in the latest Nerdist podcast. I’ve only gotten through the first 15 minutes and I’m already totally enchanted. She so friggin’ great, whether she’s talking about writing sci-fi novels or pushing for another X Files movie. “I would be f***king overjoyed.”

Video has emerged of Jamie Lynn Spears breaking up a fight in a Pita Pit by calming walking behind the counter, grabbing a knife, and threatening them like a goddamn boss.

Anna Kendrick looks great on the new cover of Nylon, in which she defends her Ryan Gosling masturbation jokes (just in case you didn’t already love her).

-The New Girl is going to be a new mom. Zooey Deschanel is expecting her first child with boyfriend Jacob Pechenik. Brace yourself for the twee-est of twee baby names.

-Well, isn’t this interesting? Us Weekly changed their Taylor Swift/Jake Gyllenhaal story to make it more favourable to Taylor. Suddenly, it no longer sounds like she was upset and/or tripping. Imagine that.

Ben Affleck/David Fincher’s remake of Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train seems like a bad idea, but Vulture makes a strong case for it.

Idris Elba is developing a thriller trilogy about Edgar Allan Poe. I like so many words in that sentence!

Beyonce certainly doesn’t look pregnant, but what do I know about wombs and whatnot?

-This TCA panel on female sexuality on TV sounded great. I especially liked their takedown of “Strong Female Characters.”

-The world just feels like a kinder, gentler place now that Robin Wright and Ben Foster have reunited, doesn’t it?

-Watch Charlie Day fail miserably at guessing popular movies with Jimmy Fallon.

-Nooooo! Stay away from Rihanna, Leonardo DiCaprio.

This takedown of The Boy Next Door trailer almost makes me want to see the movie. “Kristen Chenoweth’s line, ‘He cheats with his secretary every time he goes to the office’ they apparently got out of a barrel labeled “Sassy Best Friend Real Talk From 1978.”

-Community returns on March 17. We’re still waiting to hear if Yahoo Canada will air it.

-Ugh. Woody Allen is getting an Amazon television series. Isn’t the whole point of streaming outlets that they’re supposed to elevate new and exciting voices?

-In the red band trailer for Spy, Melissa McCarthy plays the same character she always does.

-The new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is here, and it manages to be awesomely dark without giving too much away. Marvel really doesn’t suck at this.
