-It’s a big day for the young ‘uns in Hollywood. The Hollywood Reporter announced it’s New Hollywood A-list, featuring Florence Pugh, Anya Taylor-Joy, Rege-Jean Page and more. Meanwhile, Olivia Rodrigo is on the cover of Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood Issue, which also features Lil Nas X and Gossip Girl’s Thomas Doherty. (The 90s styling for all these photo shoots is breaking my brain.)
-Meanwhile, Variety’s Q&A portion with Lil Nas X is worth a read. The talks about meeting guys on Grindr, why people shouldn’t make jokes about bottoming, and how he’s met “the one.”
-In news that should surprise no one, David Schwimmer‘s rep is shooting down that sketch report that he’s dating Jennifer Aniston.
–Dolly Parton has co-authored a novel with James Patterson, because there’s nothing she can’t do!
-Jeopardy announced Mike Richards and Mayim Bialik are splitting host duties. Richards will host the daily syndicated program (shady lawsuits be damned) and Bialik will host prime time specials and spinoffs
-A new Netflix YouTube series interviews mothers about their famous children. Anyone else find it weird that Netflix has series on Youtube? Like, don’t you already have a streaming service for that?
-“The female gaze is a Career Maker” is so, so true, which makes actors shying away from romcoms odd. Even recently, I feel like Glen Powell, Noah Centineo, and Jacob Elori all became buzzy only after being in a romcom.
-Speaking of Elori, Kissing Booth 3 is getting unsurprisingly bad reviews. Still gonna watch it and hate myself after…
–Hilary Swank has settled her suit against SAG-AFTRA after being denied health coverage for treatment of endometriosis and ovarian cysts.
–50 Cent says DaBaby is going to be just fine. “As long as he keeps the consistency with the music, he’ll be back. Remember they cancelled Chris Brown like five or six times?”
–Justin Bieber is leading the MTV VMAs with seven nominations, followed by Megan Thee Stallion with six nods.
-I keep forgetting that Brett Goldstein not only plays Roy Kent on Ted Lasso, but he’s also a writer on the show. He says his favourite scene is one he didn’t write or star in: when Rebecca confesses to Ted.
–Lea Michele trended today because there’s a Funny Girl revival happening and everyone is wondering how she’s feeling that she wasn’t cast in it — Beanie Feldstein was.
-Congrats to Sophia Bush, who announced her engagement. I love that they did a whole photo shoot in Lake Como.
-Meanwhile, the ladies of OTH are doing a podcast rewatch, we means we’re suddenly getting new dirt on a show that went off the air in 2012. Sophia Bush says talking about her ex-husband and former costar Chad Michael Murray is “not worth my time,” adding “Oh, I’m not going to talk about him. I’m not allowed to because I’ve tried to poke fun at being a dumb kid and whenever I’ve done that, it gets twisted into I’m talking s— about somebody who I don’t even know anymore, who’s clearly a grownup.” I still remember how crazy it was to be in Toronto when Murray was shooting House of Wax with Paris Hilton and all the crazy sightings/rumours flying around.
-Fans of Dan Levy raised $5ok for the Faculty of Native Studies at UofA, and he took to Instagram to express his awe and admiration.
-Here’s the season two trailer for The Other Two, one of my favourite comedies from last year. Between this and The White Lotus, I’m so here for the Molly Shannon renaissance!
-Showtime released the trailer for its upcoming docuseries Gossip, about celeb coverage. The trailer focuses on Rupert Murdoch and Page Six’s Cindy Adams, but I hope it also has an episode devoted to Janice Min, who I think had the biggest impact on who gets covered and how.
-The trailer for Nic Cage’s Prisoners Of The Ghostland is as odd as you’d expect.
