-I’m a big fan of Jon Hamm (have you ever heard him on comedy podcasts? He’s a goddamn delight), but this interview with InStyle is kinda … ugh.

–Tom Cruise revealed the Top Gun sequel title: Maverick .
–Scott Wolf takes an ’emotional’ look back at Party Of Five’s intervention episode. Oh god, I remember watching this with my mom and we just bawled. When Claudia tells him that she won’t see him anymore? “I love you the best.” Gah!
