Manny Jacinto Finds His Good Place

This GQ feature on The Good Place’s Manny Jacinto (who plays Jason) is so very charming. I had no idea he was Canadian!

-Also, The Good Place cast sharing their favourite stories about Ted Danson is lovely. (He taught the girl who plays Tahini how to slow dance, and let Kristen Bell take him to an escape room.)

-Ahead of the Super Bowl, here’s @ira’s great take on Justin Timberlake’s glaring Time’s Up hypocrisy.

Amy Schumer weighed in on the allegation against her friend Aziz Ansari on a new podcast with Katie Couric. “If you have a doctor that makes you uncomfortable, or you get a massage, or you have a date with someone and they coerce you in a situation like the Aziz one, I don’t think there’s any sort of criminal charge, but I think that it’s good for everybody to learn that that behavior’s not acceptable. It’s not a crime, but it’s not cool. And it can still really mess with a woman.”

-Everyone is talking about how bizarre Rose McGowan’s interview with Colbert was, but I thought it was pretty much what was to be expected.

-Also, McGowan slammed her former Charmed costar Alyssa Milano (“I don’t like her, ’cause I think she’s a lie”) and expressed doubts about the Times Up movement.

Kate Upton has accused Guess co-founder Paul Marciano of “sexually and emotionally” harassing women.

-E!’s investigation into those Ryan Seacrest allegations have ended, and they found ‘insufficient evidence’ of misconduct.

-The lawsuit filed against Jim Carrey over the death of his girlfriend Cathriona White has been dismissed.

Robert Wagner has officially been named as a “person of interest” in Natalie Woods‘ death, nearly 40 years later.

-This interview with Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet, in which they talk about starring in coming-of-age movies, is incredibly charming, despite all their talk of “the craft” of acting.

-Also, it never occurred to me how much Lady Bird’s storyline is close (maybe too close?) to Real Women Have Curves.

-People are still not happy with JK Rowlings’ response about Dumbledore’s lack of gayness in the Fantastic Beasts sequel.  I just don’t get why they’d tease representation, only to take it away from fans?

Tom Cruise has joined Instagram. I’m scared.

-Vogue’s 73 Question videos are always great, but this one with Donatella Versace is next-level. (Also, I’ve been saying Versace all wrong…)

Sarah Jessica Parker says she was “heartbroken” when Kim Cattrall said they were never friends. She is so very Carrie Bradshaw-in-Mexico-post-wedding-nightmare in that clip.

-I’m not sure if Demi Lovato is actually trying to flirt with Henry Cavill on Instagram, but I support it anyway.

-This made me laugh forever: Lindsay Lohan‘s team thought Lisa Kudrow‘s The Comeback was a real reality show.

Shonda Rhimes’ tweet about “strong female leads” is perfect, and reminded me of an old article on the topic that I loved.

JJ Abrams is taking his new sci-fi drama to HBO. It’s the first TV script he’s written since Fringe.

-Black Panther is projected to make as much as $140 million on opening and that’s going to be a very big deal. Let’s hope it doesn’t come as a surprise to everyone.

-Between yesterday’s reboot announcement and this new photo of Brendan Fehr and Majandra Delfino, I’m having A LOT of Roswell feels this week…

-This interview with Michaela Coel (whose Netflix show is both weird and amazing) is a delight.

-I love Adam Devine and I love love love Robbie Amell, but the premise of their new Netflix romcom seems problematic.  But it’s from the same guy who did The Duff, where he managed to turn a questionable-sounding premise on its head and make it charming af, so who knows?
