-I enjoyed A Simple Favor way more than I thought I would despite the movie’s incessant plugging of Ryan Reynolds‘ gin brand (Paul Feig knows how to use Anne Kendrick‘s quirkiness and comic timing better than anyone else), but what the hell is this promo image that Blake Lively just tweeted?! The movie is doing well. They don’t need to do this.
–Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk are getting married this weekend, and tonight’s rehearsal dinner is reportedly being hosted by Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld. Apparently the actual wedding will take place at her Hamptons home and will have only 20 guests.
-Pretty Little Liars’ star Ashley Benson is dating Cara Delevingne? Wut?
–Jodie Whittaker explaining that her hometown is nicknamed “shat” in front of Ryan Gosling is good content. (I love her so much. When she does that proud little hair flip after Bradley Cooper asks if her husband is from Tucson? Amazing.)
–Riley Keough tweeted that she wanted to be cast in Riverdale — and now she is! I gave up on that show halfway through the first season, but this is a really good get for the CW.
-Tom Hardy being interviewed by kids is a whole lotta cute.
–Bill Murray defended Dustin Hoffman against sexual harassment claims, calling him a “flirt.” THIS IS NOT THE WEEK, BILL!
-For the first time in network TV history, shows with actors of color in lead roles outnumber shows with predominantly white casts. Buzzfeed talked to all of the heads of the networks about how this year the broadcasters may FINALLY have turned the corner on diversity.
-Speaking of great long reads, this feature on Robyn is excellent.
-Just ONE DAY after its first trailer dropped, Fox has pushed Dark Phoenix from Feb 14 to June 7. This is the film’s second major delay, though there’s speculation they may be planning a crossover with the MCU.
–Bradley Cooper has denied reports that he’s going to take over from James Gunn as the director of the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
-Someone made a 10-minute loop of Lady Gaga belting out the best part of “Shallow” from A Star is Born, and wow I really needed that today.
-A Maroon 5 fan was arrested after storming the stage and confronting Adam Levine during last night’s Toronto gig. (It’s always interesting to see moments like this when singers are shocked into inaction but the song just keeps on going. That’s quite the backing vocal he’s got, there.)
–Cardi B is reinventing herself as a fashion icon and it’s kinda working for me…
-Here’s the first trailer for Showtime’s Wall Street comedy Black Monday about the 1987 stock market crash starring Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells and Regina Hall.
–Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reunite in the Holmes & Watson trailer.
