Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Dodges Game of Thrones Spoilers

Nikolaj-Coster-Waldau-Game-Thrones-Mens-Health

-Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau covers the new issue of Men’s Health Magazine and I love how he handles questions about what happens to his character in the final season: don’t evade when you can just make sh*t up. “I can’t tell you anything about that. He grows out his arm. His arm grows back. Yes. It grows back, but not in the way you think. It’s a claw. It comes out as a claw. No — it’s a paw.”

Samuel L. Jackson covers the new issue of Esquire, and he talks about not caring about pissing off Trump fans by speaking out (“I know how many motherf*ckers hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ F*ck I care? If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money. I already cashed that check. F*ck you”) and why he has no plans to retire from acting (“It’s not like I’m digging a ditch. I go on set, do some shit. I go back and sit in my trailer for two hours watching TV, eat a sandwich, read. And I go back and do ten more minutes and go sit down some more. So, yeah, it’s a great job.”)

Felicity Huffman appeared in federal court in Los Angeles this afternoon, after reportedly being arrested at home yesterday for a college entrance scheme by FBI agents with their guns drawn. A judge ordered her released on $250,000 bond. Meanwhile, Lori Loughlin turned herself into the FBI in advance of a court hearing.

-Also Laughlin’s daughter posted a lot of videos that are now coming back to bite her in the ass.

-I very much enjoyed this article on Captain Marvel and the freeing power of not giving a f*ck.

-Is everyone finally starting to believe La Toya Jackson?

-Do you think Lindsay Lohan didn’t realize that Instagram was down for everybody today??

Keira Knightley can play “Despacito” — on her teeth.

Nick Jonas got Priyanka Chopra a $200,000 Mercedes. I guess having so many sponsored weddings worked out well for them.

-SNL announced its next few hosts: Sandra Oh, Kit Harrington and Emma Stone (with musical guest BTS, which will make the kids go insane).

-I’ve pretty much given up on TV these last couple of months, but the next few weeks of premieres is stacking up to be INSANE: Game of Thrones, Killing Eve, Jane the Virgin, What We Do In Shadows, Barry, Legends of Tomorrow, The Bold Type, Fleabag, Catastrophe, The Good Fight, Fosse/Verdon, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, iZombie, Good Omens. I can already hear my PVR groaning…

-One the I might skip is Netflix’s Turn Up Charlie, which Sepinwall says is less a TV show than a checklist of things Idris Elba wanted to prove he could do on camera.

-Another that sounds skippable is Arrested Development. The second half of season five drops on Netflix this weekend and the reviews are not kind.

-Meanwhile, Fosse/Verdon, starring Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams, sound like it’s unskippable.

-The Good Fight is back tomorrow night and according to reviews it’s still amazing. Too bad no one’s watching it because in the US it’s only available on CBS’ All Access app. (Though if it aired on regular CBS, it probably wouldn’t have lasted this long). I like the idea this writer suggests: CBS air it on sister network Showtime, much like BBC did with AMC once it realized what it had on its hands with Killing Eve.

-Ever trailer I see of Long Shot starring Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron, I get more intrigued. Here’s the red band version.

-Speaking of Seth Rogen, he produced Good Boys starring Jacob Tremblay as a filthy-mouthed sixth grader.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Are Engaged

Orlando Bloom proposed to Katy Perry on Valentine’s Day, which is a very Orlando Bloom-y thing to do.

-This is a really good interview with Meg Ryan, in which she talks about burning out and the pressures of being America’s sweetheart. I love her metaphor for fame: “Ever get in a car — maybe it’s a superexpensive car — and the inside’s lovely, you can’t complain about it, but you can’t hear anything outside, because there’s so much metal? There’s so much between you and everything else. You’re at a disadvantage as a young, famous person because you don’t know who’s telling you the truth.”

-There was a very, very disturbing tweet from a Chicago news reporter last night that suggested Jussie Smollett may have staged his racist attack because he was worried he was be written out Empire. Fox Entertainment immediately denied that possibility and stood by the actor, and Empire producer Danny Strong tweeted that there was “0% truth he was being written off,” and police say there is no evidence that it was staged. Meanwhile, two suspects have been arrested.

-Whenever I see video from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s house, I get so confused. How is she calling this their living room? Where is their furniture? It’s just a big, cavernous white space. Do they have a whole wing that they devote just to IG videos?

Terry Crews talked about what it’s like to be the leading male voice in the #MeToo movement: “It feels scary, there’s no other way to really describe. I’ve had a lot of men who are very, very angry. They’re angry at me because I’ve changed the narrative. The only way I can describe it is that there’s a movie that everybody’s playing in their head and the movie doesn’t end up the way they want it.”

-I’m in love with every single thing we’re hearing about Amazon’s Good Omens series, which will premiere on May 31.

-Showtime’s new comedy series Desus & Mero is getting crazy buzz that’s to glowing early reviews, a stellar writing team, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as their first guest.

-Here’s the first trailer for Killing Eve season 2, which seems to pick up exactly where we left off.

-After heavy-hitting celebs like Brad Pitt, Alfonso Cuaron and George Clooney blasted the Oscars for planning to hand out Best Editing and Best Cinematography during commercial breaks, the Academy is now saying we all misunderstood. Uh huh.

-This photo that JJ Abrams tweeted out to celebrate the last day of shooting on Star Wars Episode IX is all kinds of perfect.

-Finding out that Tom Cruise’s character is Collateral was named Vincent Collateral has greatly enriched my life.

-R. Kelly might soon be indicted in Illinois, based on a new 45-min video that allegedly shows the singer sexually assaulting an underage girl.

-I’ve always wanted good things for Mandy Moore, but now I really, really want them following that New York Time’s article on Ryan Adams.

-Hurrah! Jared Leto‘s Joker spinoff has reportedly been shelved.

Mark Ruffalo still gives good Twitter.

-Sending out good vibes to Justin Bieber, who is reportedly seeking professional help for depression.

-Early tracking for Captain Marvel place it at a $100M opening and I want it to crush that!

-I wasn’t going to watch Netflix’s Umbrella Academy but this dance scene clip might have just changed my mind.

-It’s not surprising that Netflix has ordered a sequel to The Kissing Booth, but can they make the next one less problematic?

-Apple is set to show the first clips of their originals shows at an event in March — and hopefully announce where/how we can watch them.

Nicholas Hoult plays a hot young J.R.R. Tolkien in the first Tolkien trailer.

-In the trailer for Long Shot, Charlize Theron plays a presidential candidate and Seth Rogen plays the schlubby journalist who catches her eye, and damned if I’m not totally charmed by this whole thing!

Chris Brown Denies Rape Allegations

Chris Brown has been released from custody in Paris with no charges after being detained after a 24-year-old woman accused him of raping her in his hotel room last week. He denied the allegations in an Instagram post. The Paris prosecutor’s office said the investigation is ongoing.

-According to People, Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron met six months ago on a commercial shoot and haven’t seen each other since. We knew that was too good to be true.

-Ooh boy. Taraji P Henson posted an IG story that implied she’s mad there are hashtags about muting R Kelly but none about muting Harvey Weinstein. But the “mute” thing trended because Kelly’s a musician. And Weinstein’s already being “muted” cause he is on trial, no?

-In terms of Oscar noms, it was a great morning for Black Panther, Roma and The Favourite, but not so great for Crazy Rich Asians and If Beale Street Could Talk. Bradley Cooper should be happy for his acting nod, but you just know that he’s burning about being snubbed in the Best Director category. Check out more Oscar snubs and surprises.

-I’m surprised it took so long for these questions to start coming, but Rami Malek was asked whether he has any “regrets” about working with Bryan Singer on Bohemian Rhapsody. “I think that the allegations and things were, believe it or not, honestly something I was not aware of, and that is what it is.” Hmmmmm….

-Also, did Esquire’s big exposé on Singer get squashed? Now the Bohemian Rhapsody is up for Best Picture, this would be the time to print it. If it doesn’t get publishing in the next couple of weeks, I’m guessing it was blocked.

Anna Wintour shared her thoughts on Meghan Markle’s Givenchy wedding gown , saying it was “sophisticated, it was chic, it was grown up. It was an English designer, albeit one that was working for a French house, which in a way was a message to the world: ‘Yes, I’m from somewhere else, but I belong.'”

Azealia Banks called Grimes a ‘brittleboned methhead’ who smells ‘like a roll of nickels’. But how do you *really* feel?

-In an appearance on Ellen, the Anne Hathaway said that she made the decision to stop drinking for the next 18 years because she doesn’t want to be hungover around her kid. “I’m going to stop drinking while my son is in the house just because I don’t totally don’t love the way I do it and he’s getting to an age where he really does need me all the time in the morning.” Also, her and Fred Savage were really good at the Head’s Up game.

Tessa Thompson attended the Chanel show at Paris Haute Couture Week SS19 with a purse necklace. Oh god, I just got used to fanny packs!

-Russian Doll is the next Netflix show that every critic I follow is loving. It stars Natasha Lyonne as a woman stuck in a Groundhog Day/Happy Death Day loop, and it premieres next Friday.

Sarah Jesscia Parker recreated the Sex and the City opener for a charity campaign.

-Wait, there’s a new Nancy Drew?
