-There’s a lot of talk today about the scorched-earth interview T.J. Miller gave THR in the wake of his last episode of Silicon Valley. He’s way not enough of a household name to have this kind of attitude. He comes off terribly, takes a few swipes at costar Thomas Middleditch and burns a ton of bridges.

-Gossip Girl alum Penn Badgley will star in Lifetime’s adaptation of Caroline Kepnes‘ You. Oh, this is GOOD casting. He can play creepy yet strangely sympathetic well. Of course, this adaptation is going to live or die by who they cast as the female lead.
-Meanwhile, Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke celebrated their new marriage with another wedding.
-The new season of The Good Place will have a clam chowder fountain, which kind of sounds lovely.
