Silicon Valley Moves On From TJ Miller


-I’ve never been able to get into Silicon Valley because its lack of female characters (and the way they treat the few they have) put me off, but it’s interesting that THR’s new cover story is so openly critical of ex-cast member TJ Miller. “There had been stretches when, multiple show sources say, he looked to have things under control, and others when he’d show up seemingly under the influence, if he showed up at all…Table reads would start late as the cast and crew waited on the untamable actor, and when he did arrive he typically hadn’t cracked open the script. Schedules would regularly have to be rejiggered, and sources from the set recount tales of Miller falling asleep between takes.”

Frances McDormand’s Oscar speech is already working. Your internet boyfriend Michael B. Jordan  says he will incorporate an inclusion rider into all the projects his company produces.

Matthew Morrison hosted a Glee cast reunion and almost everyone show up (with one or two notable exceptions).

-The guy who allegedly groped Terry Crews won’t face charges. Is it just me, or is the Me Too movement kind of forgetting to support Crews as much as others?

-The Wrinkle In Time reviews are in, and they are decidedly mixed. From all the reviews I read, I think this tweet sums up the critical response: there’s something visceral about it that works on you or doesn’t.

-Whoa. Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew are being written out of Grey’s Anatomy. I don’t really watch that show much anymore, but I caught a recent episode and it seemed like Arizona had zero story and they’d really messed up April, so I guess that makes sense.

-The worrisome stories continue: Dean McDermott reportedly called 911 and asked them to check on Tori Spelling‘s well-being.

Gwyneth Paltrow scored Oprah as her first podcast guest.

-Jennifer Lawrence is feuding with a reality TV star, which sounds about right.

-Speaking of JLaw, I liked this article on her backlash.

Reese Witherspoon flirted with Adam Rippon hard on Colbert. “You smell really good. You’re more handsome in person than even on the ice.” And then he unbuttoned his shirt for her.

-Don’t try to ask Christina Hendricks about the Me Too movement. Her publicist won’t let her answer.

-Nick Offerman stars in the The House of Tomorrow trailer.
