Breaking Bad Cast Reminisce About The Show

‘Breaking Bad’ Stars Reunite For 10th Anniversary Shoot

-The stars of Breaking Bad reunited for a special 10th anniversary cover for EW, and got adorably emotional talking about how lucky they were to land those roles. (Poor Dean Norris’ Hank didn’t make the cover photo cut, but he’s part of the video roundtable.)

-Speaking of great covers, Kendrick Lamar made the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair, in which he discusses everything from Kanye West to winning a Pulitzer Prize.

Scarlett Johansson denied a “demeaning” the infamous claim she once auditioned to date Tom Cruise. That rumour has been floating around for years; I wonder why she chose to speak up this time.

Angelina Jolie  dressed up all fancy for the Queen and I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I don’t think she pulled it off.

-Top Gun 2 has narrowed its young lead casting down to Nicholas Hoult, Glen Powell and Miles Teller. Powell FTW, please!

-Undercover lovers Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are surrounded by rumours of a split, but her rep just said that it’s “100% untrue.” Wait, is this the first time that her rep is actually acknowledging the relationship? Momentous!

Drake‘s new album drops this long weekend. Here’s everything we know about it so far.

Jeffrey Tambor has lost another gig following sexual misconduct allegations.

-MSNBC’s Joy Reid had a strong story about sexual assault claims against Russell Simmons and an Extra host. Then it got canned. This THR report dives deep into #MeToo, media, race and power.

-Tool frontman James Keenan has responded to those rape allegations, calling it a “despicable false claim.”

-I gave up on Netflix’s GLOW in the middle of season one not because I didn’t like it but because I got side-tracked, but the reviews of the new season are glowing.

Mark Hamill and Chris Evans’ nerdy Twitter exchange about light sabres made my day.

-Too good at goodbyes? Sam Smith and Brandon Flynn have reportedly called it quits after nine months of dating.

-Unsurprisingly, that tabloid story about Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes expecting twins has been debunked.

Fox just ghosted on Adam Scott‘s sitcom Ghosted. It was the last non-animated comedy on its current schedule.

-Whatever (or wherever) Apple’s TV is going to be, their lineup is pretty damn solid.

Cate Blanchett and Jack Black star in the new trailer for kids’ flick The House with a Clock in its Walls.

Johnny Depp Profile Goes Viral – For All The Wrong Reasons

Johnny Depp‘s shady lawyer arranged for a profile in Rolling Stone, and whatever sympathy they were trying to garner with this article — it totally backfired. (Variety just called it a “PR liability.”) Written by Stephen Rodrick and titled ‘The Trouble With Johnny Depp’, it does not paint a favourable picture of the fading star. You really should read the whole thing because it’s batcrap crazy, but the most eyebrow-raising parts are when he argues that his financial troubles were actually *under* reported (“It’s insulting to say that I spent $30,000 on wine. Because it was far more…By the way, it was not $3 million to shoot Hunter [S. Thompson] into the f***ing sky. It was $5 million”), Rodrick’s view of how the actor considers his legal woes (“Depp seems oblivious to any personal complicity in his current predicament. [Lawyer] Waldman seems to have convinced Depp that they are freedom fighters taking on the Hollywood machine rather than scavengers squabbling over the scraps of a fortune squandered”) and the article’s closing salvo (“‘Thanks for coming,’ says Depp. ‘This could be your Pulitzer.’ For the next 15 minutes, Depp tries to figure out how to open the gates to his mansion fortress. He clicks buttons and pushes the fence, but nothing budges. He is a lost boy who won’t find his way home before dark. I finally tell him I can shimmy over the fence. I clamber over and jump down. Through the bars we say good night.”)

Michael Schur says his favorite joke from this season of The Good Place is a Pirates Of The Caribbean diss. It is pretty perfect.

Pete Davidson officially confirmed his engagement to Ariana Grande on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night:  “Some people come up to me and say, Yo man, you give me hope. I didn’t know I was that ugly…I’m a lucky motherf***er.”

-I love that a bunch of TV writers rooms across all types of different networks have banded together to support an initiative to help families separated at the US border.

Demi Lovato dropped a surprise new single called Sober, in which she reveals that after six years of sobriety, she apparently relapsed.

-While Brad Pitt‘s camp is planting stories about how he’s being cheated out of custody rights, Angelina Jolie  is visiting Mosul a year after its liberation from ISIS, and talking about the world’s lack of action.

-This GQ first person essay by Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Stephanie Beatriz is really worth your time.  She talks about how she’s getting married to a man, but how that shouldn’t make her seem any less bi.

-Bless Zoey Deutch for not holding back her criticism when asked  on Watch What Happens Live what it was like to kiss James Franco.

-It’s good to see that Rian Johnson has a sense of humor about this kind of fandom bs.

Justin Theroux posed for the cover of Men’s Health and kept his shirt on so what was even the point?

-Speaking of covers, Janet Jackson looks amazing on the new issue of Essence. In the interview, she talks about going through an “intense” bout of depression in her 30s.

Seth Rogen is justifiably excited about the possibility of sharing a song credit with Beyonce on the upcoming Lion King soundtrack.

-MTV is rebooting Daria, Made, Aeon Flux and The Real World — and hopes to sell them to other networks/streaming services — as it launches MTV Studios. The studio push is an effort across all Viacom brands, which is why Nickelodeon just sold an animated kids show to Netflix.

-Wait, Ozark is actually getting a season 2?  That surprises me.

-This is an excellent look at Queer Eye’s latest iteration.

Jim Carrey sings a sad song for Michel Gondry in the Kidding teaser.

Tiffany Haddish Talks Leonardo DiCaprio, Beyonce and Taylor Swift

tiffany haddish thr leonardo dicaprio beyonce taylor swift roseanne

-The biggest soundbite coming out of Tiffany Haddish‘s hilarious THR cover profile is her story about hitting on Leonardo DiCaprio (as it should be — she made fun of his p*ssy posse before telling him “I wanna do it with you as your character in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape….cause I feel like that performance deserves a real reward and that reward is [me]), but the whole damn article is worth your time. She talks about her early unpleasant run-ins with Roseanne, confirms that Sanaa Lathan bit Beyonce, and says she tried to take Taylor Swift to her 20th high school reunion but the singer’s security shut it down.

Jamie Foxx “emphatically denies” sexually assaulting a woman in 2002 at a Vegas party after she allegedly refused to go down on him.

Angelina Jolie‘s rep is blasting reports that she is at risk of losing primary custody of the kids — and seems to blame Brad Pitt’s camp for leaking select court docs. “This misleading leak is not in the best interests of the children…It’s deplorable that someone for their own selfish reasons leaked selective portions of the confidential and sealed court record to create an inaccurate and unfair picture of what is really happening.” Whatever’s happening, legal experts seem to think it’s “extremely rare” for courts to intervene in this way. The judge’s orders that caught my eye was how she must provide Pitt with “each of the minor children’s personal cellphone numbers so that [he] may text them,” and that he can’t be with them unmonitored yet.

Justin Bieber was spotted hanging out with his ex-girlfriend Hailey Baldwin again. The two were “inseparable” in Miami over the weekend when they were both in town for a church conference(!).

Emma Stone and Justin Theroux are still hanging out — but other people were there too so I’m still holding out hope that they’re just friends!

-Gotta say, I love that the first marketing material Wonder Woman 2 released was this spoilery photo. Other franchises would spend the entire press tour teasing whether or not a role like this would be reprised, but right outta the gate they are getting it out of the way so we can all focus on other stuff. There’s also some scoop about Kristen Wiig’s character. The film, titled Wonder Woman: 1984, will be released Nov 1, 2019.

-I love this article about how Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Amy Santiago has exploded many a pop-culture myth about smart, driven female characters needing to be cold, humorless, and lonely.

-Speaking of great TV articles, this is an excellent deep-dive into how Netflix decides what’s a hit, and how it helps connect subscribers to its all-you-can-eat TV buffet.

-And don’t sleep on this article on how Dietland and The Bold Type use fashion to deliver their feminist message.

Neil Patrick Harris apologized to Rachel Bloom for his Tony Awards tweet after she revealed that it left her “kind of devastated.”

-I didn’t even know that Lady Gaga was engaged. Mazel!

-I really dig Bryce Dallas Howard but her outfit at the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom premiere was a *choice.*

Kim Kardashian is out here changing the world. She’s reportedly heading to Tennessee to meet Alice Johnson after convincing Trump to commute her life sentence, and she also might have convinced the head of Twitter to give us an edit button.

-Fans leapt to Selena Gomez‘s defense after Dolce & Gabanna’s Stefano Gabbana  called her “so ugly.” What’s wrong with this guy?!

Ryan Reynolds responded to Kanye West in the most Ryan Reynolds-y way ever.

-I really like this take by Lexi Alexander urging showrunners to question every time someone in Hollywood says an actress is “too difficult” to work with.

Sophia Bush admitted she felt pressured to marry her One Tree Hill costar, Chad Michael Murray. “How do you let everybody down…and when you have bosses telling you that you’re the only person who gets a person to work on time, and 200 people either get to see their kids at night or they don’t because our days start on time.” She also talked about why she abruptly left NBC’s Chicago P.D. after four seasons, saying it was because of a costar who is still on the show.

-I do love that most of the One Tree Hill cast remains so tight. Hilarie Burton, Robert Buckley, Danneel Ackles, Tyler Hilton and Antwon Tanner are reuniting for a Lifetime movie.

-Disney dropped the first trailer for Tim Burton‘s live-action Dumbo, starring Colin Farrell, Eva Green and Michael Keaton.
