Adam Brody Reminisces about The OC

Adam Brody was a guest on the latest episode of the OC recap podcast, and the entire conversation is a delight. He and ex-girlfriend Rachel Bilson reminisce about the show, analyze Seth Cohen’s legacy, and argue about whether or not he costarred with her in Jumper. They were supposed to recap the third season episode “The Strip” but they talked so much they had to split it into two episodes.

-Everyone is still trying to make Chris Evans and Selena Gomez happen. Unsubscribe.

-The Crown is set to defy the express wishes of Prince William in its upcoming season by including a dramatized version of Princess Diana‘s interview with Martin Bashir. As it is believed the Netflix drama will recreate the infamous moment she tells the BBC ‘there were three of us in this marriage.’

-A “live” round was used in the gun that killed Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department and the Santa Fe County District Attorney said in a press conference today. They added that it’s too early to determine whether charges would be filed.

-Rust’ armorer told investigators that live ammunition was not used on the set, while the first assistant director told investigators that he did not check all three rounds in a handgun before giving it to Alec Baldwin and declaring it a “cold gun.” He acknowledged he should have done so.

-There’s been a lot of talk about the inexperienced crew/below the line workers on the set of Rust, but I think this article is the first I’ve seen to put more blame (rightly) on the producers.

Ioan Gruffudd‘s split from wife Alice Evans continues to be messy. Just as he went Instagram official with his new girlfriend, she’s accusing him of a three-year affair.

Skeet Ulrich initially thought Matthew Lillard and Jamie Kennedy were ruining Scream by improving jokes. “[I was] like, ‘This isn’t funny. This isn’t supposed to be funny.’ And man, was I wrong.”

Tom Holland says that he can’t wait for people to see one particular scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home. “It’s one of the coolest scenes I’ve ever shot… it’s four people sitting at a table, having a conversation about what it’s like to be a superhero, and it was amazing.” It’s got to be with all the other actors who played Peter Parker who are rumoured to appear, right?

Britney Spears‘ fiancé Sam Asghari has been cast in an action movie alongside (ugh) Mel Gibson.

Kevin Hart takes a dramatic turn in Netflix’s upcoming seven-episode drama Matter of Life and Death, costarring Wesley Snipes. Watch the first trailer here.

-A new trailer for House Of Gucci shows Lady Gaga meeting Adam Driver. Oh my god, these accents!

-A new Wheel of Time trailer has dropped. GQ recently did a huge profile on the new Amazon show, and the scale and expense of this thing is insane. (The piece also does a good job of capturing the actors’ dawning realization that if this turns in to the next Game of Thrones like Jeff Bezos wants it to, they could be filming in Prague for the next 5-10 years.)

Chris Evans voices the original Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s upcoming Lightyear movie (though he only says the word “and” in the trailer). Director Angus MacLane told Entertainment Weekly to not think of Lightyear as being set in the world of Toy Story. “It’s a straightforward sci-fi action film about the Buzz Lightyear character…It’s that character but as the space ranger, not as the toy.” Is it just me, or is that a fundamental misunderstanding about what audiences want to see of these characters?
