–Florence Pugh is in talks to join Dune 2. Denis Villeneuve‘s sequel will resume from where the first one left off, with Paul (Timothée Chalamet) fighting with the Fremen to free the desert planet of Arrakis from the grips of House Harkonnen. Pugh is being courted to play Princess Irulan, the daughter of the Emperor.
–Zoë Kravitz said they shot Big Little Lies in “such a white area” that it made her “uncomfortable”: “Just weird racist people in bars and things like that.”
–Lee Pace did an interview with Vulture to answer questions about Pushing Daisies (I love how shaggy cute he is in this clip). “When I got cast in The Hobbit, Peter Jackson said, ‘We loved you in Pushing Daisies. That’s why you’re here.’”
–January Jones debuted an edgy new hairstyle and choices were made.
-This is an interesting look at how the tabloids are profiting off Kanye West‘s continued harassment of Kim Kardashian. “Kardashian articulated clear boundaries by posting on IG that she wants to handle matters privately, but West has continued to publicly harass her through social media and other public acts that involve her name or her likeness without her consent.”
–Mindy Kaling announced that Netflix has renewed Never Have I Ever for a fourth and final season.
-The reviews for Amy Schumer‘s new show Life and Beth seem mixed.
-Speaking of reviews for new shows, it seems that Renée Zellweger wearing a fat suit in The Thing About Pam is a distraction. Who woulda thunk it?
–Christopher Eccleston has softened his stance on coming back to Doctor Who — but he’ll only do it if he’s alone. “I’ve never been a fan of multi-Doctor stories. You know, when I worked on the series I had really strong ideas—surprise, surprise—about what works and what doesn’t, and I always think that multi-Doctor stories are a bit of a cash-in, and a bit of exploitation,” Eccleston said. “Creatively they never work for me. … The Ninth Doctor in particular is a one-man band, definitely. So, he doesn’t work with other Doctors. If you want me back, you get me on my own.”
-There’s a new featurette on The Lost City. I want it so much!
