-It was a wild day on The View. They were supposed to have Kamala Harris on today, but in the middle of the show producers announced co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro had to leave the table after testing positive for Covid-19. Joy Behar and Sara Haines just took audience questions for the bulk of the show, and Harris ended up calling in remotely for the last 10 minutes of the show.
–Elon Musk and Grimes have broken up after three years together.
–Prince Andrew has accepted he has been served in a US sexual assault lawsuit. Wow, how big of him.
-Just like with Fyre Festival, Hulu and Netflix have dueling documentaries about Britney Spears — and the Hulu one gets a surprise release tonight.
–Sarah Jessica Parker wrote a touching tribute to the late Willie Garson — “I will miss everything about you. And replay our last moments together.” She also shared some very sweet photos.
–Michael K. Williams’ cause of death has been revealed as an accidental overdose of fluorofentanyl, heroin and cocaine.
-There are no new ideas. A Night Court sequel series starring Melissa Rauch and John Larroquette has been ordered at NBC.
-Meanwhile, Teen Wolf is coming back…again, with a new movie from the show’s creator Jeff Davis for Paramount+.
–Russell T. Davies — who was instrumental in helping revive Doctor Who in 2005 — is set to return as the showrunner of BBC’s cult sci-fi series. “I’m beyond excited to be back on my favorite show.”
–Drew Barrymore interviewed the cast of Dear Evan Hansen as Josie Gellar from Never Been Kissed. There’s a moment when you can actually see Julianne Moore‘s soul leave her body…
–Cary Fukunaga covers The Hollywood Reporter to chat about Bond, but also dished a bit about what went down on True Detective. “[Writer] Nic [Pizzolatto] kept positioning himself as if he was my boss and I was like, ‘But you’re not my boss. We’re partners. We collaborate.’… Nic is a really good writer, but I do think he needs to be edited down. It becomes too much about the writing and not enough about the momentum of the story. My struggle with him was to take some of these long dialogue scenes and put some air into them.”
-The Other Two has been renewed for a third season. Yay!
-The Super Mario Bros animated movie is powering up with an all-star voice cast led by Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. The internet is SO MAD about the Pratt casting!
-I can’t believe I stuck it out through all of Nine Perfect Strangers. I also can’t believe no one stopped Nicole Kidman from doing whatever she was trying to do. Melissa McCarthy and and Bobby Cannavale were the only good parts of that show.
-Meanwhile, on the show’s last day Melissa McCarthy proved that Nicole Kidman will hug anyone — no matter how much it scares her.
-A ton of Netflix trailers and featurettes are going to drop tomorrow during their Tudum event.
