Supernatural Coming to an End

-I don’t watch Supernatural and even I’m shocked by the news that it’s ending. I thought that show would outlast us all. It’s making me really curious what The CW’s plan is, as it’s now letting go of a big chunk of its trademark shows: Arrow, Supernatural, iZombie, Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.  In any case, watching the cast get teary while announcing the news got me. Carry on, wayward sons!

Priyanka Chopra shot down rumours that she’s mad at Meghan Markle for not attending her wedding.

-In honour of Reese Witherspoon‘s birthday, Jennifer Garner posted a video of herself playing sax. There was a costume and everything.

-If you invite Glenn Close to your house for Christmas, she might show up dressed like a sheep. And everyone will just roll with it because she’s Glenn freakin’ Close.

Diane Kruger opened up about the end of her relationship with Joshua Jackson in a new interview. “I was in such a dark place. I had two really close family deaths that year, I was separating from my partner of 10 years. There was just a lot of darkness and personal loss.”

David Letterman says he regrets the last part of his Late Show tenure. “Here’s the mistake I made: I stayed on television way too long. It turns out that nobody had the guts to fire me, and I should’ve left 10 years ago.”

-The entire cast of Parks and Rec reunited today for a Paley Fest panel and confirmed that we shouldn’t get our hopes up for a reboot.

-I am never going to see Jordan Peele‘s new movie, Us. Not ever, because I’m a big chicken. But this article on what the ending could mean is really well done. (Spoilers, obvs.)

-Kate Beckinsale just deleted all her Instagram posts, which is a shame because they were reliably delightful. I blame Pete Davidson.

-Speaking of delightful IG feeds, Michelle Pfeiffer knows what she’s doing.

-Netflix is shuffling episode orders, but denies it’s basing it on your sexual identity. That’s not terrifying at all.

-Meanwhile, I like this article on whether or not Netflix can take over the world without turning evil. Let’s hope!

-Netflix is debuting Unicorn Store on April 5, directed by and starring Brie Larson. It debuted last year at TIFF and people seemed to think it was twee but good.

 

Laverne Cox Covers EW, Talks Caitlyn Jenner

laverne-cox-entertainment-weekly-cover

-It’s a good week for Laverne Cox. Not only did the new season of Orange Is the New Black drop (a day early!), but she’s gracing the cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.

-Also, how awesome is it that the OITNB cast vacations together?

-Need a good read to end your week? May I interest you in the Top 35 Shadiest Pop Diva Moments, Ranked?

-Well, this sucks. All of David Letterman‘s Late Show clips on YouTube have been removed, leaving a sad trail of broken embeds.

-Ian who? Nina Dobrev was spotted kissing Austin Stowell at a comedy club.

Julianna Margulies is talking about feminism in Hollywood, which I’m having a *really* hard time wrapping my brain around.

-Interesting: Elizabeth Banks may direct the adaptation of the book Red Queen, with a script by a Breaking Bad writer. (It says a lot about how much YA I read that it’s listed as “finished” in my Kobo but I have no recollection of this book at all…)

-Do-gooder Taylor Swift continues to do good. She donated $15,000 to the firefighter who saved his own family.

Kim Kardashian is having a boy according to Us Weekly, who seem to have a reporter embedded in her uterus.

Jimmy Kimmel aired a trailer spoof of The Martian starring his enemy Matt Damon called The Mastronaut: Emission to Mars. Good stuff.

Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart got kissy at the Mr. Holmes premiere, launching a thousand fanfics.

-TV critics are split on True Detective season 2. The Hollywood Reporter says it’s “trying so hard it hurts,” while Vulture calls it “totally fascinating.”

-Speaking of shows that critics seem to love more than me, here’s the first promo for the new season of The Leftovers.

-Here’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Hit Record dark comedy skit written by Mindy Kaling and starring Chris Messina.

-I don’t read romance (but NPR’s latest PCHH podcast may be changing my mind), but it sucks that a usually solid site like The Mary Sue would write such a sexist takedown of the whole genre. No wonder Twitter went crazy.

-So ABC accidentally aired some LeBron James peen last night.

Is this more proof that CBS leaked its own Supergirl pilot, or just internet weirdness?

Britney Spears wants to be Brangelina’s nanny — an idea which no doubt *thrills* them.

Melissa McCarthy said she was so nervous when she first talked to Sandra Bullock, she couldn’t stop saying her full name. (Also, I finally watched the full Gilmore Girls ATX panel. Is it weird that no one — not even the guy who played her husband — mentioned Melissa at all?)

Chris Pratt says he only had to use three facial impressions to act in Jurassic World. Let him show you.

-Following up with yesterday’s links about fandom toxicity, now John Greene is being targeted by ignorant Tumblr-ers.

-Watch Man From U.N.C.L.E. trailer and see just how much sexual-innuendo-laden dialogue you can handle.

Chris Pratt Takes Over EW, GQ, Our Dreams

chris pratt EW

-Remember last year’s Summer Must List issue of EW, which featured Jessica Alba climbing out of a pool? This year we get Chris Pratt. #upgrade

-EW also posted an Instagram video of Pratt getting wet ‘n wild.

Pratt also covers the new issue of GQ, in which he talks about getting in trouble at NBC for always showing his junk.

-It’s a great day for hot dudes on magazine covers. Harry Potter’s Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) just posed for Attitude in his underwear and now the entire internet needs therapy.

J.K. Rowling was especially scandalized.

Lewis also posted a photo with Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke, who he’s costarring with in the adaptation of Jojo Moyes’s novel Me Before You, which I *hated*. But now I might have to reconsider this movie…

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield were photographed holding hands again, restoring the universe’s faith in love.

-The weirdest thing about the Mad Men finale is that there was debate afterwards about whether or not Don created the Coke ad. Matthew Weiner has definitively answered that.

Vin Diesel keeps posting karaoke tributes to Paul Walker and they are getting increasingly weird. The latest is Tove Lo’s “Habits” (which I love) but hearing him try to inject emotion into the “I pick up daddies at the playground” line is unintentionally hilarious.

-Did you watch David Letterman‘s final show last night? It was very low key, which was perfectly him. Here’s video of his signoff and the Foo Fighters’ performance.

Bill Murray had a very, very good time after showing up on Letterman’s last show.

-I don’t even watch Supernatural (except for the occasional time that my sister-in-law tells me Felicia Day will be on it), but the fact that the entire cast joined in on this parody recap video set to “Shake It Off” is awesome.

-The Supergirl trailer has garnered more than 10 million views in just a week. Don’t screw this up, CBS!

Rebel Wilson is 35, not 29 like she’s been claiming in interviews. How did she even expect to get away with that? Who does she think she is, Catherine Zeta Jones?

-Speaking of ageism in Hollywood, Maggie Gyllenhaal revealed that she lost out on a role because at 37, she was deemed “too old” to play the love interest of a 55-year-old man.

-Now we know why Mindy Kaling has been talking so much about her relationship with BJ Novak lately: they’re writing a book about it.

-Meanwhile, I spent the first half of this Cannes video of Kaling with her Inside Out costars thinking Amy Poehler was Megan Mullally. True story.

-Uh oh. There are more rumours of Johnny Depp abandoning filming of the latest Pirates movie.

Taylor Swift‘s “not sexy” Maxim cover has horrified male readers. Horrified!

Batkid is going to give you feelings again with this new trailer. No, YOU’RE crying!
