Tatiana Maslany Keeps Us Guessing About She-Hulk

-Remember a month ago when I mentioned that I was on a Zoom call with Tatiana Maslany and she said she’s not doing She-Hulk? She just said it again and the headlines are everywhere. My guess remains the same: that she’s doing it but sworn to keep it under wraps until there’s an official announcement. The original story in the trades was based on “sources” — and Scarlett Johansson was denying a Black Widow movie up until about a month before filming started.

Armie Hammer is now seeking joint custody and requesting his ex return to the U.S. from the Cayman Islands. Elizabeth Chambers filed for divorce from Hammer in July, seeking primary physical custody of their two children.

-I’m sure the Daily Mail is just reaching for headlines, but I’m choosing to believe this story about Dominic West being terrorized by squirrels.

Taryn Manning is claiming DWTS invited her to join the cast “many times,” but the show has a different take: “Her representation attempted to pitch her to us a while back and we kindly passed. So her claim that she was asked to join ‘DWTS’ once, never mind many times, is completely false.”

Jacob Tremblay portrays a young Justin Bieber in the new video for “Lonely.” This is scary good casting.

-Meanwhile, Bieber is this week’s musical guest on SNL, with Issa Rae hosting.

-Fans put a damper on Bieber‘s big week by camping outside his home. He posted on IG Stories: “This is not a hotel. It’s my home. How do you convince yourself it’s not completely inappropriate and disrespectful to wait outside my home to gawk, stare and take pictures as I walk into my apartment?”

Dwyane Wade was walking on the beach and happened to pass by a proposal. His reaction is everything.

-In a charming new interview with The Ringer, Adam Brody discusses how many people re-watching The OC now find his character mean (“I totally understand that about Seth and I can even see it without seeing it again. I mean, I don’t recall him doing anything brave and I don’t just mean physically brave”) and talks about being a feminist (“I’m not an activist, but I do feel that I’m pretty aware and my wife [Leighton Meester] helps me a lot. My wife is a feminist and has been for a long time, so she helps me a lot. Although I think we’ve all had our eyes opened even more so these last handful of years, but we’re all still learning and certainly I am. I like to think of myself as a feminist. I don’t know if I fully live up to that or not”).

-Speaking of charming interviews, You’re The Worst’s Chris Greere interviews former costar Aya Cash about her role on The Boys.

Harvey Weinstein‘s lawyers claim he will likely die in prison if not freed. [*crickets*]

Miley Cyrus is reviving her Backyard Sessions for a special episode of MTV’s Unplugged series. This is such a clever way to do content in quarantine.

-I don’t believe a digit of Netflix’s ratings reports, but they are saying that Ratched is the most watched original program in 2020. I wonder if even they care that it was so horribly received?

-Bridgerton is being made into a series by Shonda Rhimes? Yes, please!

Ethan Hawke had to shoot his appearance on Desus & Mero last night from an empty hotel ballroom in Ireland because he was having wi-fi issues in his room. Still managed to be charming af tho.

David Byrne’s American Utopia debuts on Crave this weekend and it’s so, so good. It’s directed by Spike Lee and is one of my fave films of the year so far. It’s joyous and thought-provoking and made me get up and dance multiple times (watching films at home is one benefit of movies going straight to streaming).

Charlie Hunnam plays a bare-knuckle boxer reluctantly traveling across the country with his brother for one last fight in Jungleland. It took me halfway through the trailer for me to realize I saw this at last year’s TIFF. I really liked the girl from The End of the F**king World in it.

-The summer that love died ended with a bang: after months of speculation and rumours of bad behaviour, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt confirmed they’ve ended their 18-year(!) relationship.

-Yay for Taraji P. Henson and Gina Rodriguez landing on Glamour’s October cover! Oh, and Emma Roberts is there too, I guess.

-Meanwhile, Emma Roberts and Evan Peters are back together. This should end well.

Damon Wayans defended Bill Cosby in an interview with The Breakfast Club radio program, saying (among other horrible things) that some of his accusers are “un-rape-able. I look at them and go, ‘No, he don’t want that. Get outta here!'” Following the inevitable backlash, he’s now saying it was sarcasm and people are twisting his words. Sure.

Sandra Bullock’s new boyfriend once allegedly smeared dog shit on his neighbour’s door. In his defense, his neighbours sound like awful people.

Anne Hathaway tried starting a book club with Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, but they’re both working so hard they don’t have time to read.

-Is Tom Brady throwing his support behind Donald Trump? Man, this really is his summer of stupid decisions, huh?

Tom also denied reports of trouble in his marriage to Gisele Bundchen.

Stephen Colbert’s late-night rivals gave him some terrible advice before the debut of his new show later tonight.

-Set your DVRs: last year’s best comedy You’re The Worst comes back tomorrow night. (I adore the photos in this feature on its star, Aya Cash.)

-In every recent photo of Kristen Stewart, she just looks so very happy. It’s nice.

Miss Piggy has moved on from Kermit to…Josh Groban?

-Netflix is reportedly considering a third season of Black Mirror. Yay! I saw a panel with Hayley Atwell this weekend at Fan Expo and she was talking about how haunted she was by her episode of that show. Her and me both.

-I also met Gillian Anderson at Fan Expo and somehow didn’t spontaneously combust on the spot. Success!

Tom Hardy is not embarrassed by those old underwear selfies on MySpace. Nor should he be.

-Captain America: Civil War will not be based on the comic book? Then why the hell did I sit through my coworker’s 20 minute explanation of it?!

-Rumours are circulating that Warner Bros is pushing for edits/reshoots to add more Batman in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Oh yes, because more Ben Affleck solves everything.

Matt Damon gets his science on in three new TV spots for The Martian.

-Also, here’s our first look at Matt back as Jason Bourne in next summer’s Bourne 5.

Trainspotting 2 will reportedly be Danny Boyle’s next film, with all four main actors returning. I don’t know how I feel about this…

-So much yes to this case for making Keegan-Michael Key our next rom-com leading man.

Jason Reitman has been slowly revealing the cast of his TIFF Princess Bride live read on Twitter. So far, Donald Glover and Gael Garcia Bernal are on board so I’m already swooning.

-See Jake Gyllenhaal deal with depression in the trailer for Demolition. This looks promising.

-Watch Sandra Bullock try to rescue a Latin American democracy in the trailer for Our Brand Is Crisis (aka – the only movie I tried and failed to get tickets for at TIFF).
