-Why does it feel like a network show is imploding every week these days? Today, it’s Castle’s turn. I don’t watch the show but even I’d heard rumblings about the long-rumoured onset tensions. Now the lead actress has been let go (add her to the ever-growing fired actress pile!) and though the official explanation is “financial reasons,” even the trades are mentioning her reported troubles with Nathan Fillion (who didn’t really help matters with his delayed, impersonal statement about it — especially compared with her other coworkers’ responses.)
-Meanwhile, Us Weekly says things got so bad between Fillion and Stana Katic last season that the network made them go to “couples counseling.” It clearly didn’t work.
–Jared Leto knew better to pull any of his stupid Joker bullshit on Viola Davis during the Suicide Squad shoot.
-Wayment — are we actually supposed to *feel bad* for Chris Brown when watching this new documentary?! Hard pass.
–Prince Harry and Prince William visited the Star Wars 8 set and it was ADORABLE!
-Meanwhile, Force Awakens favourites Oscar Isaac and BB-8 reunited for charity. Also adorbs.
–Joss Whedon is very sorry for making everyone think he hated the last Avengers movie. (He still hasn’t apologized for his bitch-flounce off Twitter, tho.)
-Allow Taylor Swift to take you on a tour of her Beverly Hills home while talking about cats, cakes, terrible cocktails (vodka Diet Coke? Jesus.) during Vogue’s latest 73 Questions video.
–Stephen and Robbie Amell’s crowdfunding movie just passed the million-dollar mark. That makes me feel better about not contributing yet. I mean, I will eventually because I’m not a monster but still…
–Patrick Stewart makes a better woman than I could ever hope to be. Depressing but unsurprising.
-Buzzfeed titled this article “This selfie of Milo Ventimiglia proves he’s still the hottest of Rory Gilmore’s boyfriends” and my entire Twitter TL was like:
-Congrats to Oliva Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, who are having another baby.
–Michael Strahan is leaving Live with Kelly and Michael. Can someone other than me break this news to my mother? I will pay you in doughnuts.
–Aisha Tyler talks about dealing with sexism and getting good advice from Jennifer Aniston in this new article about her crowdfunding efforts to direct. She also revealed on The Talk that she separated from her husband last year but is trying to shelter him from any public fallout because she’s a wonderful human being.
-“I’m a little gay & there’s a gay James,” says James Franco. Um, ok.
-Dafuq is going on with Elizabeth Banks‘ Power Rangers costume? The whole point of this movie is nostalgia so of course, just go ahead and change everything.
-I love that Emily Nussbaum just won Pulitzer for TV criticism. I’ve been reading her since she first posted an awesome defense of Sex and the City and I saw her moderate Mindy Kaling’s panel at the Vulture fest. She’s excellent.
-Holy crap, guys. NBC is so rough right now that The Mysteries of Laura looks like it will make it to a third season. How?!
–Emilia Clarke recruited the Broad City girls in her mission to “free the P” on Game of Thrones.
–Jennifer Garner‘s 44th birthday party included a marching band. I like her style!
–Stephen Colbert mocked Johnny Deep and Amber Heard‘s strange apology with his own apology to Australia.
-Vulture has a great piece on how every [white] actor you love will eventually make a superhero movie.
-Like us, Michelle Williams likes to imagine a Dawson’s Creek reunion. But also like us, she doesn’t think it’ll ever happen.
–Matt Damon‘s return as Jason Bourne gets teased in two new videos.
