Jake Gyllenhaal admits he’s all for being set up on dates. Get on it, ladies!

Azealia Banks DM’d an apology to Nicki Minaj — but then posted it which seems like the opposite point of DMs.

Jim Carrey is alleging extortion and blaming his former girlfriend’s mother and lawyer for her death.

-EW hosted a Family Matters reunion.

-Don’t touch Hocus Pocus, Hollywood! Don’t you freakin’ dare!

-Here’s a roundup of all the critics gushing about the new Blade Runner movie. I can’t believe I’m going to have to sit through another 2-1/2 hour film…
