Tatiana Maslany Keeps Us Guessing About She-Hulk

-Remember a month ago when I mentioned that I was on a Zoom call with Tatiana Maslany and she said she’s not doing She-Hulk? She just said it again and the headlines are everywhere. My guess remains the same: that she’s doing it but sworn to keep it under wraps until there’s an official announcement. The original story in the trades was based on “sources” — and Scarlett Johansson was denying a Black Widow movie up until about a month before filming started.

Armie Hammer is now seeking joint custody and requesting his ex return to the U.S. from the Cayman Islands. Elizabeth Chambers filed for divorce from Hammer in July, seeking primary physical custody of their two children.

-I’m sure the Daily Mail is just reaching for headlines, but I’m choosing to believe this story about Dominic West being terrorized by squirrels.

Taryn Manning is claiming DWTS invited her to join the cast “many times,” but the show has a different take: “Her representation attempted to pitch her to us a while back and we kindly passed. So her claim that she was asked to join ‘DWTS’ once, never mind many times, is completely false.”

Jacob Tremblay portrays a young Justin Bieber in the new video for “Lonely.” This is scary good casting.

-Meanwhile, Bieber is this week’s musical guest on SNL, with Issa Rae hosting.

-Fans put a damper on Bieber‘s big week by camping outside his home. He posted on IG Stories: “This is not a hotel. It’s my home. How do you convince yourself it’s not completely inappropriate and disrespectful to wait outside my home to gawk, stare and take pictures as I walk into my apartment?”

Dwyane Wade was walking on the beach and happened to pass by a proposal. His reaction is everything.

-In a charming new interview with The Ringer, Adam Brody discusses how many people re-watching The OC now find his character mean (“I totally understand that about Seth and I can even see it without seeing it again. I mean, I don’t recall him doing anything brave and I don’t just mean physically brave”) and talks about being a feminist (“I’m not an activist, but I do feel that I’m pretty aware and my wife [Leighton Meester] helps me a lot. My wife is a feminist and has been for a long time, so she helps me a lot. Although I think we’ve all had our eyes opened even more so these last handful of years, but we’re all still learning and certainly I am. I like to think of myself as a feminist. I don’t know if I fully live up to that or not”).

-Speaking of charming interviews, You’re The Worst’s Chris Greere interviews former costar Aya Cash about her role on The Boys.

Harvey Weinstein‘s lawyers claim he will likely die in prison if not freed. [*crickets*]

Miley Cyrus is reviving her Backyard Sessions for a special episode of MTV’s Unplugged series. This is such a clever way to do content in quarantine.

-I don’t believe a digit of Netflix’s ratings reports, but they are saying that Ratched is the most watched original program in 2020. I wonder if even they care that it was so horribly received?

-Bridgerton is being made into a series by Shonda Rhimes? Yes, please!

Ethan Hawke had to shoot his appearance on Desus & Mero last night from an empty hotel ballroom in Ireland because he was having wi-fi issues in his room. Still managed to be charming af tho.

David Byrne’s American Utopia debuts on Crave this weekend and it’s so, so good. It’s directed by Spike Lee and is one of my fave films of the year so far. It’s joyous and thought-provoking and made me get up and dance multiple times (watching films at home is one benefit of movies going straight to streaming).

Charlie Hunnam plays a bare-knuckle boxer reluctantly traveling across the country with his brother for one last fight in Jungleland. It took me halfway through the trailer for me to realize I saw this at last year’s TIFF. I really liked the girl from The End of the F**king World in it.

Mariah Carey “Doesn’t Know” Demi Lovato or Ariana Grande

Mariah Carey‘s latest victims of ‘I don’t know her’: Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande. She still won’t admit to knowing JLo either. Pray for them.

-Also, this clip makes me really, really want to catch up on Mariah‘s reality show.

Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley got married in a secret ceremony in Australia over the weekend. And by “secret” they just mean you weren’t invited.

Tilda Swinton shared her email exchange with Margaret Cho about Doctor Strange, diversity, and whitewashing after Cho said she had a “fight” with her over the controversial casting. Tilda brings the receipts!

-This is such a good and worthwhile read about what separates Casey Affleck from Nate Parker.  White guilt has its limits, white privilege has none.

-Speaking of Hollywood’s endless supply of redemption narratives for rich white dudes, this Emile Hirsch interview is eyeroll-inducing.

-This is supposed to get us excited for the Twin Peaks reboot.

-Now this is how you do a TV promo: here’s the first trailer for The Good Fight, the Good Wife spinoff that starts in Feb on CBS All Access. We’re getting this some legal way in Canada, right?!  I need Diane and her statement necklaces back in my life!

Bella Thorne and her dating life exhausts me.

Jacob Tremblay is on a new segment of Billy on the Street, and he’s so adorable that I want to wrap him in bubble wrap and protect him at all costs. “He’s more successful than you. The New York Times said he’s fragile and buoyant.”

-Collateral Beauty gave Will Smith the worst wide opening of his career with a measly $7M weekend. Even 7 Pounds doubled that.

-I don’t really keep up with all the Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian drama, but it was hard to avoid it this weekend. A hacker took over Blac’s Instagram and claimed she left Rob, then posted convos that seemed to prove a string of affairs with other men including Jaden Smith and Young Thug. She later confirmed that she’d left Rob, said that the conversations published were real but denied the affairs, and implied that the Kardashians might have been behind the whole thing.  For his part, Rob has apologized for commenting on  the posts and is “seeking help.”

-Don’t worry, guys! Michael Sheen says he’s not really quitting acting for politics. I know you were all concerned. (Also, Michael Sheen has a Tumblr?!?)

Marc Anthony and his wife Shannon de Lima have split. What number is this? 4?

-Quick, someone get Joss Whedon drunk and then make him explain his Gwyneth Paltrow tweet!

-With Kim Kardashian West reportedly taking the rest of the year off, the paparazzi are struggling and complaining about a lean holiday season.

Chris Pratt defending Passengers against its terrible reviews is actually making me feel bad. But then I remember that he got paid $12M for it.

-Here’s the new John Wick 2 trailer. I didn’t really get the first movie (much to the chagrin of every dude I know).

-Here’s the first teaser for Blade Runner 2049, starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling. I don’t know why the hell anyone would want to mess with this IP, but if it has to be done, at least Denis Villeneuve is in charge.
