The Rings Of Power Looks Gorgeous

-The first trailer for Amazon’s upcoming LOTR prequel series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is incredibly expensive-looking.

-In a note posted to her Twitter account, Constance Wu says that after the outcry over her tweet about Fresh Off The Boat’s renewal, a fellow Asian actress sent her DMs telling her that she’d “become a blight on the Asian American community.” Wu says that she tried to end her life and “a friend found me and rushed me to the ER.”

-I was skeptical when TMZ posted it, but now Variety is reporting that Armie Hammer is selling timeshares in the Caymans. “He is working at a cubicle. The reality is he’s totally broke, and is trying to fill the days and earn money to support his family.” I don’t understand how he’s so broke — not just because he is an heir to a fortune, but because he was steadily working up until 2020.
