Tiffany Haddish Takes To The Streets

Tiffany Haddish and Billy Eichner took to the streets to cast a more inclusive Hocus Pocus. (It’s so funny, despite the unnecessary Kathy Najimy slam.)

-I’ll never question Meghan Markle‘s hair conspiracists again… (That’s not true; I totally will. But they were right about the no waves = pregnant thing, I guess.)

-Also, this is the first outfit I’ve seen her in where she kinda sorta maybe looks pregnant.

-A David Schwimmer doppleganger is wanted by the police, and the internet is having a field day with it. The British police even had to issue a statement confirming that they have ruled out the actor as a suspect in a beer theft case after posting a “wanted” picture of someone who bore a striking resemblance to the Friends star. At least he seems to be having a lot of fun with it, posting his own alibi video.

-Everyone wants to know all about Jennifer Garner’s new boyfriend, a CEO who she’s reportedly been dating for 6 months. He seems very cute in this company video he shot.

Ellen Pompeo says she was “completely shocked” by backlash over her paycheck. Um, really?

-Also, Ellen gave some pretty terrible advice about ovarian cancer screenings, which is not great Bob. If we can’t take medical advice from fake TV doctors, who can we take it from?!

Ariana Grande‘s family is reportedly relieved that her engagement to Pete Davidson fell through, sources told People.

-How can Disney be talking about “rebooting” the Pirates franchise? It’s still an active franchise — they just released one!

-I absolutely agree with this take that Jennifer’s Body would kill if it were released today.

-Timeless fans, expect an air date announcement about the wrap-up movie soon.

-Drake threw a 2000s-themed party for his birthday and I feel old.

-Speaking of feeling old, it’s the 10th anniversary of Twilight. Director Catherine Hardwicke and actor Jackson Rathbone returned to the site where the vampire baseball scene was filmed.

-I really love how critics are getting behind Legends of Tomorrow. It really is a delight.

-Here’s the trailer for season two of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which recently swept the Emmys despite no one I know watching it.

Sandra Bullock will do whatever it takes for her family to survive in Bird Box, dropping December 21 on Netflix. This looks intense — like The Quiet Place but instead of staying quiet to avoid the creatures, you have to stay blindfolded.

EW Goes Big for Avengers: Infinity War

ew-avengers-covers

-EW released 15(!) different covers this week for Avengers: Infinity War. I haven’t checked by mail yet but I’m hoping for Evans, will undoubtedly get Thanos. Also, look at Shuri!

-Wait a second… just how many dinosaur skulls does Leonardo DiCaprio own?

-More proof that A-listers need to demand inclusion riders. On A Few Good Men, an executive wanted a sex scene between Tom Cruise and Demi Moore. When Aaron Sorkin refused, the exec responded:  “Well if Tom and Demi aren’t going to sleep together why is Demi’s [character] a woman?”

-Time’s up? A source within the New York Police Department revealed to the Daily Beast that they are close to arresting Harvey Weinstein.

Mae Whitman talking about the Zeek junkyard speech that Craig T. Nelson improvised on Parenthood made me tear up a lil bit.

Olivia Munn says that she is not dating Justin Theroux — or any of her friends’ exes.

-It sucks that people are blaming Ellen Pompeo‘s recently salary bump on two of her Grey’s costars leaving. That’s not how TV works. Trust me, if the show wanted to keep those actors, Disney can afford it.

Lisa Bonet has broken her silence about Bill Cosby – in the most Lisa Bonet-y way possible. “There was no knowledge on my part about his specific actions, but…there was just energy. And that type of sinister, shadow energy cannot be concealed.”

-It’s unusual to get gossip about the usually private Colin Firth, but his wife admitted to an affair when she and Firth were on a break. She is now accusing the man she was with of stalking.

-I don’t get this Bruno Mars debate. The man works his butt off, seems nice and non-problematic, and makes BOPS.

Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn went hiking in Malibu this week, leading to this gem of an eyewitness statement: “The other thing that struck me is that they kind of look exactly like each other, which is weird.”

Kristen Wiig has been confirmed as Wonder Woman 2’s villain Cheetah. This is casting I can get behind.

-I really liked this take on Atlanta’s latest episode, especially the part about “Donald Glover‘s star image as a black creative able to balance autonomy and a so-called auteurism with wider recognition.”

-This is my city’s tribute to The Shape of Water. I’m very proud.

-A new Handmaid’s Tale season two trailer has dropped.

 

Ellen Pompeo Reveals Why She’s TV’s $20 Million Woman

ellen_pompeo_thr

-If you read any long form article today, read THR’s cover story on Ellen Pompeo. It’s a refreshingly candid about the negotiations that made her the highest paid actress on television. She spills some McDreamy tea, revealing how Patrick Dempsey was used as leverage against her in salary negotiations “for years”. (“At one point, I asked for $5,000 more than him just on principle, because the show is Grey’s Anatomy and I’m Meredith Grey. They wouldn’t give it to me.”) It’s such a refreshingly blunt, entertaining and empowering read on recognizing your worth and fighting for it.

Kim Kardashian is a new mom! She brought her newborn daughter home.

Justin Timberlake said he ‘absolutely’ made peace with Janet Jackson after the Super Bowl incident. Maybe that’s true, but he certainly didn’t do it publicly, did he?

Selena Gomez’s mother says she tried to convince her not work with Woody Allen, but it “fell on deaf ears.”

Timothée Chalamet donated his salary from a Woody Allen film to #TimesUp and other charities. I’m actually surprised that he didn’t seem to get as much blow back for working with him as others have.

-Meanwhile, Dylan Farrow talked about her desire to take Woody Allen down. “Why shouldn’t I be angry? Why shouldn’t I be hurt? Why shouldn’t I feel some sort of outrage that after all these years — being ignored and disbelieved and tossed aside?”

Arnold Schwarzenegger says if he and the cast had known about Eliza Dushku‘s claim while filming True Lies, he says, “you bet your ass all of us would have done something.”

-Meanwhile, two more women have accused Joel Kramer of misconduct.

Catherine Zeta-Jones spoke out about Michael Douglaspreemptive sexual harassment denial.

-In news that is no way shocking, James Franco’s Twitter stripper movie is now on hold.

Paul Scheer made fun of a romance novel’s cover and the genre’s fans called him out on it — so he ended up reading it, live-tweeting it and loving it. I adore this story.

-I don’t watch James Spader‘s TV show, but I will watch him tell crazy stories on talk shows.

-A Harry Potter fan-fiction film about Voldemort’s origin has over 4 million views.

-American Crime Story: Versace is getting great reviews — but it is nothing like The People vs OJ Simpson.

-Speaking of TV shows that are getting great reviews, everyone’s loving CW’s Black Lightning.  I was really taken by last night’s pilot (which got good ratings) and I hope they can sustain it.

Leslie Jones reveals that she wasn’t faking it during that SNL skit with James Franco when it looked like she was trying not to puke.

Gabrielle Union’s new movie seems like Panic Room meets John Wick and I’m HERE FOR IT!
