Dawson’s Creek Cast Reunites for EW

dawsons-creek-reunion

-EW’s Dawson’s Creek reunion was the gift that kept on giving today. The four different covers! The photo shoot! The hour-long video interview with the cast! The GIFs! The quiz! The definitive proof that Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps are soulmates! Totally bliss.

-The Roseanne reboot debut last night and the ratings were insanely, staggeringly good — 18.2 million total viewers and a 5.1 demo. (For comparison, Will & Grace returned to 10M viewers and a 3.0 in the demo.) It set a ton of ratings records, including being the biggest sitcom telecast in three years. It even got bigger ratings that its series finale 10 years ago. So basically, expect TV studios to be rebooting every 90s show they can think of now…

-I liked this thread on how the show offers an unrealistic depiction of a Trump supporter.

Donald Glover’s animated Deadpool series isn’t happening, and he doesn’t seem very happy about it.

These excerpts from Sean Penn’s new book can’t be real. And it includes a poem about #MeToo? Seriously, this can’t be happening.

-In a new BBC documentary, R. Kelly’s ex-girlfriend claims he “trained” a 14-year-old girl to be his sex slave. I don’t understand how we’re in the age of Time’s Up and yet his house has yet to be raided.

-So it’s possible that Corey Feldman wasn’t actually stabbed this morning after all?

-On Dax Shepard’s podcast (who knew that was a thing?!), Anna Faris says she regrets pretending to have a perfect marriage  on social media. “We intentionally cultivated this idea of like, ‘Look at this beautiful family.’ There were so many moments that were like that, but like anything on social media, you don’t post like, ‘Where the fuck is the toilet paper?’ or whatever. I think it’s a very hard forum to be genuine, and I think it does a disservice to people to not be.”

-I loved this thread on actors who are really good at making you believe in a romcom because of THE LOOK.

-Remember how Armie Hammer failed to get an Oscar nom and then he spent the next few months in sad-looking tracksuits? He says he’s moving on.

-I keep forgetting that The Americans returns tonight.  The reviews say the final season is great.

Amal Clooney is coming to Toronto for Luminato.

Amandla Stenberg is a teen with superpower in the The Darkest Minds trailer.

 

Cardi B Defends Strippers, Fiance

cardib-cosmopolitan-april-2018-cover

-I love a good Cardi B interview, and her latest is shaping up to be a gem! In the preview quotes from her new Cosmo cover, she sticks up for strippers (“Just because somebody was a stripper don’t mean they don’t have no brain”) and explains why she’s sticking with fiance Offset amid cheating rumours (“I don’t have low self-esteem…I know I look good. I know I’m rich, I know I’m talented. I know I could get any man I want —any basketball player, football player. But I want to work out my shit with my man, and I don’t got to explain why. I’m not your property”).

-Speaking of cover stories, lots of people have pointed out that Variety’s new Jennifer Lawrence cover looks a lot like THR’s cover shot of her from a couple of months ago.

-A lot of people have also pointed out that her Variety interview is pretty bland, including Buzzfeed writer Anne Helen Peterson — who Armie Hammer immediately mocked via Twitter.  His post-Oscar nominations attitude (which has included a tracksuit obsession), coupled with his dedication to going after a female entertainment journalist who dared write a non-super-flattering article about him is doing nothing to get me on his side. If anything, it’s proving the article’s point!

-Meanwhile, I like Peterson’s response when asked about Hammer’s new tweet to her.

-The Variety story may have been a let down, but Jennifer Lawrence‘s off-the-cut, freewheeling appearance on Stephen Colbert’s show was a delight.  She drank rum, called Harvey Weinstein an “ass boil,” and revealed that she spent most of Amy Schumer’s wedding trying to flirt with Larry David.

-Of course Amy Schumer‘s wedding vows included blow-job jokes.

Uma Thurman does not regret speaking out about Weinstein. “You’ve gotta be a citizen, and you can’t leave people alone holding the bag of truth by themselves. There’s no one I wish to get due process more than him.”

Ryan Seacrest denies his former stylist’s sexual assault allegations, calling her claims “debunked“.  It’s going to be incredibly interesting to see if anyone calls him out on the carpet.

-Westworld’s Evan Rachel Wood and The Last Jedi’s Kelly Marie Tran, play a darker, #MeToo version of the classic character guessing game Guess Who?

-Well, at least Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon still seem to get along.

Mel B hinted that the Spice Girls reunion might happen at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.

-It’s really, really weird that the social media embargo for A Wrinkle In Time lifted last night — and no one is really saying anything. There are a few mixed reactions, but it seems like most outlets were told to not say anything until next week? Not a great sign, especially because Disney put a full review embargo on it until 1 day and 7 hours before it opens. I’m still gonna see it, regardless.

-Wait, Baby Groot is actually Groot’s son and the original Groot is dead? I’m shook.

-Not gonna lie; Michael B. Jordan talking about Wallace’s death scene on The Wire made me tear up a little.

-Of course Barbra Streisand had her beloved dog cloned.

-Weird — the promos of Kelly Clarkson on The Voice make me want to watch the show. And I am not someone who’s inclined to do that.

Taylor Kitsch may be giving Will Smith a run for his money as the most charming actor on Instagram.

-Holy crap. Netflix spends more on content than anyone else on the internet — and many TV networks, too. It’s eyeing 700(!) original series and movies in 2018.

Gina Rodriguez has signed on to star in and produce a romantic comedy that the creator of MTV’s Sweet/Vicious is directing for Netflix.

-I like that Yvette Nicole Brown keeps getting work. Now that The Mayor is cancelled, she’s been tapped to star in Most Likely To, written by Diablo Cody and produced by Greg Berlanti.

-During a recent visit to Joel McHale‘s new Netflix show, Kristen Bell got disgustingly candid about how she and her daughter came down with anal worms. Why?!?

Adam Sandler and Chris Rock oversee a chaotic wedding in The Week Of trailer.

Oprah Interviews Jennifer Lawrence for The Hollywood Reporter

jennifer_lawrence_oprah

Jennifer Lawrence talked about what it was like to be interviewed by Oprah for the new issue of THR: “I went to her house, which was just insane. I left crying. I called my parents. It was just life-changing.” The interview isn’t ground-breaking, but she talks about wanting to meet Trump (“I’ve got a pretty good speech. And it ends with a martini to the face.”). Also, I love that she calls it “Twittering.”

-Oh my goodness, I love this Nicole Kidman cover.

-Time named the “silence breakers” their person of the year. People have a lot of issues with Taylor Swift’s inclusion on the cover. I don’t hate it because of how she stood up for herself (and women in general) in her lawsuit with that DJ, but I agree that I would have loved to see Kesha, Tarana Burke, Terry Crews or Gabrielle Union in that cover spot instead.

Ron Pearlman, Michael Rapaport and Alec Baldwin are all showing their true colours, claiming that John Oliver shouldn’t have made Dustin Hoffman uncomfortable by grilling him in a professional setting. You know what else is uncomfortable? Being sexually harassed in a professional setting. It’s always the right time to talk about it. Not talking about this stuff in public is how Hollywood found itself where it is now.

-Whoa. Jeffrey Tambor now says he has not quit Transparent and has no plans to do so.

-The two reporters at the NYT who first covered the Weinstein story have published a fascinating followup about the complicity machine that he built. It’s full of crazy tidbits, from publications that would suppress stories in exchange for star access, to a gossip columnist he hired to dig up dirt on celebs which he would give tabloids in exchange for them not writing about him, to Lena Dunham‘s claim that that she urged Hilary’s campaign to distance themselves from him by saying “Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point.”

-Authorities appear to have found audio that verifies Corey Feldman‘s claims that he spoke to the police in 1993 and identified his alleged industry sexual abusers.

Beyoncé made a surprise appearance at the the Sports Illustrated Awards last night to present Colin Kaepernick with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.

-The early reviews for Steven Spielberg‘s The Post suggest this thing is going to crush the Oscars.

Ryan Reynolds will star as Detective Pikachu in a Pokemon movie. What?

-Sandra Bullock is previewing the all-female Oceans 8 film in the new issue of EW.

-This photo of James McAvoy has pretty much set Twitter on fire.

Fergie interrupted Armie Hammer on stage at a charity event and it was super uncomfortable.

Mariah Carey reportedly got a $5-10 million settlement from her billionaire ex-fiance for wasting her time. Is that how that works? Man, I have so many people in my life I need to sue…

Gal Gadot says the fictional character she most identifies with is Borat. (My favourite answer to that question is Amy Pascal’s: “Gillian Anderson’s Stella Gibson in The Fall. She fucks everybody and wears these gorgeous silk shirts and is really tough and smart.”)

Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman are doing a crafting show? Yes, please!

-Here’s the first trailer for Black Mirror season 4, which debuts Dec 29 on Netflix — just around the time you’ll be looking to escape your family!
