-SNL’s Cecily Strong, who lost her cousin, shared a powerful essay on what it’s like to grieve in quarantine.

Tom Holland helped Jimmy Kimmel’s three-year-old celebrate his birthday by surprising him with a message from Spider-Man.

Chris Evans getting in on the Stanley Tucci love is adorable.

-Eek. Ellen Pompeo is usually pretty woke but this video that’s been circulating today is a bad look.

Halle Berry says she nearly died on the set of 2002’s Die Another Day. “I am supposed to be trying to be all sexy with a fig — and then I end up choking on it. And [Pierce Brosnan] had to get up and do the Heimlich. So not sexy, so not sexy. He was there for me, and he will always be one of my favorite people in the whole world.”

-I’m pretty done with Star Wars IP for awhile, but good on Russian Doll’s Leslye Headland for developing a SW series at Disney Plus.

-I haven’t loved Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere, mostly because the characters in the book were very understated which made their systemic white privilege so insidious whereas in the show Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington are chewing through scenery like every line will be part of their Emmy reel. But the finale (which veers widely from the book’s ending) was quite affecting.

-The end of Empire — which was forced to wrap up two episodes earlier than planned when the pandemic shut down production — did well in the ratings. Meanwhile, Taraji P. Henson told EW: “As an artist, to not be able to finish something that you started, that hurts me. I feel incomplete. I don’t ever start something and don’t complete it. And so, for me, it’s deep; I have to finish, or this will haunt me for the rest of my life and career.”

-I kind of love that Pink is crowd-sourcing all of her baking dilemmas.

-Film Twitter is full of bad takes, and the one that circulated yesterday about There Will Be Blood was a doozy. Don’t let film bros make you hate a movie you like. But also, don’t hate on it just because film bros love it.

Mandy Patinkin‘s son quizzing his parents on texting abbreviations is exactly what I needed to watch today.

-Hollywood is starting to make plans for what TV and movie productions will look like once they re-open.

-A little over five percent of the 135 features originally selected for SXSW 2020 have opted in to stream on Amazon Prime from April 27-May 6.

-The novel Normal People didn’t knock my socks off the way it did with others, but Hulu’s adaptation is getting gushing reviews so maybe I’ll like the TV version better?

-Whew, this trailer for a new Netflix documentary hit me right in the heart guts.

Halle Berry Shows Off Killer Abs

Halle Berry is 53 and she’s bragging about having abs for the first time, which I’m going to think about every time I feel like bailing on the gym.

Miley Cyrus is on vocal rest after undergoing surgery, so expect her IG stories to be 76% less problematic than usual.

-Season two of YOU premieres on Netflix on Dec 26, so you can avoid your family this holiday season by being conflicted about your feelings for a serial killer.

Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans did an Actors on Actors interview, in which they talked about Avengers, A Marriage Story, Knives Out and Scorsese’s comments about Marvel.

-Meanwhile, Chadwick Boseman suggested Scorsese’s timing of his comments is suspect. “You’ve got to think about when he’s saying it. He’s saying it when he’s possibly campaigning for an award. He’s saying it at a time when he’s making a Netflix movie, so that’s how eyes get on his film, and it’s not going to be in the cinemas—it’s not going to be seen the best way.”

-NPR’s Linda Holmes has assembled a guide to more than 60 new holiday movies coming to TV this season. She’s doing god’s work.

-A mini-Mad Man reunion: Jon Hamm attended TV daughter Kiernan Shipka’s birthday party.

Andrew Scott (aka Hot Priest) is looking sinful in the new issue of British GQ.

-In other Fleabag-related news, Victoria Beckham, Olivia Colman, Nigella Lawson, Roxane Gay, Maya Rudolph and more got to ask Phoebe Waller-Bridge some questions about her work.

Drake was booed off stage at LA music festival this weekend when he showed up as the surprise guest. Between this and the Don Cherry news, Canada is really have A DAY.

T.I.‘s daughter has unfollowed him and her family. After his comments last week about her hymen, this seems like a solid choice.

Beanie Feldstein‘s comedy How to Build a Girl (which I really liked at TIFF) was bought by IFC.

-10 days after AppleTV Plus launched, the head of scripted programming is leaving. Peak streaming is going fine, guys.

-Meanwhile, Disney+ launches tomorrow, and no one seems to know what to do. (I’m sure millions of people downloading an app and logging in for the first time all at once will go incredibly smoothly.)

-The order of the rankings on these types of lists always bug me, but overall The AV Club’s compilation of the 100 best shows of the 2010s is pretty spot on.

-Have you read Daisy Jones & the Six yet? Get on it before Amazon’s adapted series comes out.

-I love that Blumhouse is doing so well, but man all of their movie trailers give me the scares. Lucy Hale, Maggie Q, Michael Peña, and Portia Doubleday star in Fantasy Island.

Celebs Celebrate InStyle

julianne moore in style

-This is a really good week for cover stories. For InStyle’s 25th anniversary, they gathered a bunch of stars to look back on their favourite covers, including Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Gwyneth Paltrow, and more. All of the videos are great, but the Garner one is gold.

-Speaking of good cover stories, Woody Harrelson tells Esquire that turning down the lead in Jerry Maguire is his biggest career regret.

-Vanity Fair’s Power of Young Hollywood covers feature Cole Sprouse, Stephan James, and Camila Cabello.

Nic Cage did an interview with the New York Times that has to be read to be believed.

-I also dug this profile of Nicholas Braun, who plays Cousin Greg on Succession (though he will always be Cameron from the TV version of 10 Things I Hate About You to me).

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are still going strong. Huh.

Jacob Tremblay mistaking Tobey Maguire for his lawyer is giving me life.

Justin Theroux opened a hipster “dive bar” which seems very douchey and therefore very on-brand.

-Apparently the Pitch revival came close to happening but couldn’t find a home at Disney. Frankly, I’ve been so disappointed by reboots and revivals recently that I’m ok with this.

-The Rookie actress Afton Williamson says she won’t be returning to the ABC drama starring Nathan Fillion, claiming that she faced racial discrimination from the hair department and exec producers, and sexual harassment from a recurring guest star, which escalated at the wrap party.

Tiffany Haddish is shooting in Toronto and she’s been hanging out at the gym because the men are hot. She clearly goes to a different gym than me.

Melissa McCarthy saw if we want more women-led movies, we have to buy more tickets to them. She’s not wrong, but I think there’s a bit more to it than that.

-The Ryan Murphy-produced American Crime Story is coming back — and the focus will be on the Clinton presidency scandal, with Monica Lewinsky on board to produce. The cast is stacked: Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp; Beanie Feldstein as Lewinsky; and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones. I only wish it wasn’t airing in the final weeks leading up to the 2020 election, which seems like a *really* bad time to remind everyone what a human tire fire Clinton could be.

-This is surprising: the 90210 reboot, which premieres tonight, is getting reviews that range from mildly positive to positive to glowing.

Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz and Oscar Isaac lend their voices to The Addams Family trailer.
