–Halle Berry is getting lots of buzz for her directorial debut Bruised, in which she plays a mixed martial arts fighter. In her new Variety cover story, she talks about seeing warning signs while shooting Catwoman (“The story didn’t feel quite right. I remember having that argument: ‘Why can’t Catwoman save the world like Batman and Superman do? Why is she just saving women from a face cream that cracks their face off?'”) and her fights with Bryan Singer on the X-Men set (“Bryan’s not the easiest dude to work with…I would sometimes be very angry with him. I got into a few fights with him, said a few cuss words out of sheer frustration. When I work, I’m serious about that. And when that gets compromised, I get a little nutty”).

-Good on Niecy Nash for securing a photo deal with People for her wedding pics. In the interview she said of marrying Jessica Betts: “I don’t feel like my marriage is my coming out of anywhere, but rather a going into myself and being honest about who I love. And I’m not limiting myself on what that love is supposed to look like.” She added, “I was not suppressing my sexuality my whole life. I love who I love. At one point in my life, I married twice and I love those people. And today I love this person. I’ve done everything I wanted to do on my own terms and my own way. So my choice now in a partner has nothing to do with who I’ve always been.”

-I gave up on The 100 after its first season but man, after seeing why it was trending last night, I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of another showrunner with more contempt for fans (he’s right up there with Veronica Mars’ Rob Thomas). To pull a move like that with a fan favourite, to make another fan favourite be responsible, and to do it when there’s just a few episodes left of the series? That’s not edgy or daring, that’s just burning the show’s legacy.
