Joe Rogan Gets Covid, Takes Horse Dewormer

Joe Rogan says he’s tested positive for covid and he’s treating himself with horse dewormer. Makes sense cause he acts like an animal. (No really though, don’t do this.) If he comes out and says this cured him — it won’t — we’re in trouble.

-This is a great profile of Tony Leung in GQ. He speaks about his coming villain period, and checking into hotels with just a book.

-There’s talk that Leung is SO good in Shang Chi, it’s almost cruel to put Simu Liu up against him.

Archie Panjabi is finally starting to open up about that green-screened bar scene with Julianna Margulies on The Good Wife. She doesn’t say much (“I know we had drinks at the bar…The fact that you have people interested in the show and those characters, and they’re so invested in it, you know, it’s just a testament to how great that show was”) but the fact that she’s talking about it at all is a good sign. Has an NDA expired or something? Give us the tell-all!

Tom Holland wished Zendaya a happy birthday on Insta with this sweet photo of them.

-I have seen so many tweets this week about James Marsden deserving James Corden‘s movie musical career, and yes! (I also find it weird that after so many rumours about him, the thing that made people really seem to turn against Corden was the traffic flash mob for Cinderella.)

-Rough day for Tom Cruise. Both Top Gun: Maverick and  Mission Impossible 7 are being delayed again.

Paul Schrader says he was kicked out of Paul Dano’s Zoom poker club: “I got thrown out. I joined another and got thrown out of it too. It all has to do with political correctness. I never met these people, they’re images on screen. I said something that someone took offence to.”

-From Lainey’s site: “What’s interesting about Stephen [Amell] is I live in Vancouver and know a few people that worked on Arrow. I was not surprised by the airplane story.” Yup.

-CBS is overhauling the cast and premise of B Positive ahead of season 2. It’s not the first time Chuck Lorre has had to do this.

Freida Pinto is rattled by a home invasion in the Intrusion trailer.

-I don’t follow country music but Luke Bryan’s baby drama sounds insane.

Ben Affleck meme’d himself for being thirsty on Raya.

Britney Spears would like a break from having documentaries made about her. “These documentaries are so hypocritical … they criticize the media and then do the same thing.”

Julianna Margulies is releasing a memoir and says he didn’t want it to be a “tell-all.” Ok, but if she doesn’t address the Archie Panjabi stuff, she can keep it.

-A day after announcing “I’m in the worst shape of my life” comes news that Will Smith will be in a Youtube fitness show.

-Elizabeth Olsen was reportedly pursued for several high-profile series from top producers after the success of Wandavision (rightly so), and she ultimately chose HBO Max’s Life and Death, a limited series by David E. Kelley in which she’ll play Texas killer Candy Montgomery.

Andrew Garfield insists he’s not in the upcoming Spider-Man movie, but no one believes him.

No #SquadGoals Here; Critics Skewer Suicide Squad

-I happened to be on Twitter last when the Suicide Squad review embargo was lifted and oof! The critics are absolutely hating on it, so much so that dumb fanboys are now petitioning to have Rotten Tomatoes shut down — which is kind of like complaining that a newspaper prints too many crime stories. (This is why I now try to limit my tweets about superhero TV; DC fanboys are the WORST.) Meanwhile, THR’s deep dive into what went wrong with this movie is fascinating. Warner Bros execs were reportedly so blindsided and rattled by the critical response to Batman v. Superman that they even brought in the team who made the (admittedly great) first Suicide Squad trailer to help tweak the movie, which is…wow.

Channing Tatum is set to star in Splash remake, playing the mermaid while Jillian Bell will play the character originally played by Tom Hanks. I love this news, especially since Tatum is never funnier than when he’s with Bell. Have you seen his Idiotsitter episode? If not, this clip should convince you to rectify that.

-Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey has apologized after pretending to come out. Wait, what?

Bradley Cooper allowed James Corden to tase him. I really wish I had that opportunity after seeing All About Steve.

-Surprise! We’re getting a new Britney Spears album this month!

-Welp. This isn’t good news for the Cruel Intentions reboot starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. NBC is reportedly looking at “alternative platforms” to air it.

-Pro gun nuts ran Daisy Ridley off Instagram.

Jonah Hill told Fallon a story about the time he accidentally emailed Drake his daily food journal (the point of said story is to let y’all know that he has Drake in his contacts).

-I cannot believe I forgot to record The Hills anniversary special when I was away.  Sounds like they showed lots of forth wall-breaking clips. (Spencer Pratt, who was not invited, still managed to add his commentary.)

-As if you didn’t already love the kids from Stranger Things, it turns out they’re all really good singers.

-Meanwhile, as good as Stranger Things is, this is a really great piece on how the show misses the mark with its female characters.

-I don’t know what makes me happier: that there are a bunch of videos floating around of the Arrow cast breaking into showtunes from Hamilton, or that in each one, the guy who plays Det. Lance seems really annoyed by it.

-Once again at the TCAs, HBO was somehow blindsided by questions on its shows defaulting to sexual violence against women. Sigh.

-Meanwhile at the TCAs, Archie Panjabi gracefully deflected questions about her messy exit from The Good Wife. Proper ’cause that wasn’t the place for those kinds of questions, but can she just go ahead and do a Vanity Fair tell-all interview already?

Julia Stiles didn’t love riding a motorcycle with Matt Damon on the Bourne set.

-Excuse me while I go build a shrine to this photo Joshua Jackson just posted on Instagram…

Tatiana Maslany heads to the Arctic but can’t escape her past in her new movie Two Lovers and a Bear.
