Kristen Stewart Goes Glam Charlie’s Angels Trailer

-The first Charlie’s Angels trailer actually looks like a blast. (I just listened to the I Hate It But I Love It episode about the last Charlie’s Angels movie and realized how gross it could be, so I’m comforted by the fact that these girls say “Hello, Charlie” in a very straight-forward, non-flirty way.)

-In his new Vanity Fair cover story, Idris Elba talks about being disheartened by the reaction to rumours he’d take on Bond, and taking a role in the adaptation of the Broadway musical Cats (“I’m not a ‘singer.’ I’ve made music with singing. I’m musical…I’m an actor. I’ve never done it before, so I thought, ‘Why not?'”)

Jake Gyllenhaal stanning for Sean Paul is the best thing you’ll see on the internet today.

-Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness tried to tame David Letterman‘s wild beard.

Kim Kardashian responded to the backlash against naming her shapewear line Kimono (and trying to trademark the term) in a statement that uses lots of words like “inclusion” and “diversity” but doesn’t really seem to recognize the cultural appropriation or apologize for anything.

-It’s been long enough that I can assume you’ve all watched season 2 of Fleabag, right? (If you haven’t, get on it! It’s only six 22-minute episodes, so you can crank it out in a night!) I’ve watched Kristin Scott Thomas’ monologue on how women are born with pain built in multiple times.  I love this interview with Andrew Scott and Phoebe Waller-Bridge on creating their chemistry, and this is probably the best article (of the many, many I read) about the show’s amazing use of the fourth wall.

Paul Rudd is joining the cast of Jason Reitman‘s Ghostbusters 2020, which he announced in this cute video.

-Nearly four months after it was cancelled by Netflix, One Day At A Time was saved by cable channel Pop. The landmark deal will see season four air there first before airing on CBS later.

-Speaking of shows that air on Pop in the US, this is a lovely story on the impact Schitt’s Creek has had on Goodwood, Ont., where fans flock to see the sets and stars.

-Spider-Man: Far From Home is getting pretty good reviews.

-The man who accused Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting him in a bar in 2016 has filed a civil lawsuit against the actor.

Salma Hayek is in early talks to join Marvel’s The Eternals. At this point, they should just list the actors NOT rumoured to be in this movie.

George and Amal Clooney continue to live their best lives.

-The stars of Legends of Tomorrow openly mocking the fact that the CW didn’t invite them to ComicCon is a mood.

-I liked this article about the pros and cons of bringing back our fave TV shows and characters.

Joel Kinnaman plays a snitch caught between the mob and the FBI in the trailer for The Informer.

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


-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.
