–Sophie Turner has reignited rumors that Taylor Swift plays Dazzler in X-Men: Apocalypse.
–Sara Ramirez tweeted cryptic gossip about maybe leaving Grey’s Anatomy and the internet was not happy. I’m surprised people still care that much about this show.
-10 Cloverfield Lane’s Dan Trachtenberg is going to direct an episode of Black Mirror, so that should be terrifyingly good.
-Say what you will about Ryan Reynolds and how he allegedly acts on sets, but this is beyond sweet.
-The Punisher is getting his own Netflix show, starring Jon Bernthal. I haven’t gotten past the first episode of Daredevil S2, but he was ok, I guess?
-This is wonderful: Allison Janney took over a White House press briefing in character as C. J. Cregg from The West Wing.
–Margaret Atwood‘s The Handmaid’s Tale is getting the series treatment on Hulu — starring Elisabeth Moss no less. Perfect casting! (I wish it wasn’t written and run by a dude, but small victories.)
-I love Kelly Ripa with her gloves off! She brought up Michael Strahan’s divorce on live TV and it was all kinds of cringe-worthy.
-More reports are coming in about how tense things have been between Ripa and Strahan for a while.
-Here’s our first look at Emma Stone as Bille Jean King.
-The Obamas are fake feuding with Prince Harry and the Queen on Twitter and it’s adorable.
-I adore this Vulture article in praise of “middlebrow” TV. As much as I love prestige shows like The Americans, Fargo and People vs OJ Simpson, there’s a reason I still have a bunch of episodes from each of those piling up on my DVR: sometimes they feel like homework. When I get home from a long day at work, 9 times out of 10 I’m hitting up my CW faves first.
-Speaking of my CW faves, I’d totally be down with a Crazy Ex-Girlfriend crossover with The Flash.
-Ohhhh…an oral history of the “Hide and Seek” scene from The OC. Yes, please.
–Jenna Fischer and James Gunn have totally figured out this whole conscious uncoupling thing.
–Kirk Cameron‘s marriage advice is just as terrible as you’d expect.
–Shia LaBeouf left a voicemail apologizing to the guy who got beat up for looking like him.
-Watch Barack and Michelle go on a first date in this adorable trailer for Southside.
