-The trailer for the new Shawn Mendes doc is out and it starts with him in the shower, which means Netflix has a lock on what his fans wanna see.
–Dominic West is reportedly in talks to play Prince Charles in the fifth and sixth seasons of The Crown, which is kind of delicious considering the past few weeks.
–Mark Ruffalo has jumped to Chris Pratt’s defense, calling him “not overtly political.”
–Kim Kardashian sat down with David Letterman for his Netfix show and offered a clue as to why the family is ending their reality series: “Realistically, we can post something on social media and make more than we do a whole season.” Gawd, that’s depressing.
-After postponing their wedding twice, Taraji P. Henson and fiancé Kelvin Hayden have decided to split.
-Netflix once again proves that you shouldn’t fall in love with their shows unless you like heartbreak — they canceled Away, starring Hilary Swank and Josh Charles. I’m surprised by this one; it felt like a show that critics didn’t love or talk about but was drawing in the type of quietly loyal audience that watches CBS procedurals.
-Netflix confirmed that Dawson’s Creek won’t have its iconic theme song when it hits the streaming giant’s library next month, instead replaced with Jann Arden’s “Run Like Mad.” Good for her!
-I know this is sounding like a broken record, but my god, what’s going on with Britney Spears’ Instagram?
–Harvey Weinstein’s request for a bail release pending appeal has been denied, reportedly due to his overwhelming amount of resources and motive to flee the country.
–Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are reprising their Hocus Pocus roles for a virtual reunion on Oct 30. Tickets are $10 to support the New York Restoration Project and special guests will include Meryl Streep, Jennifer Hudson, Glenn Close, Elvira, Billy Crystal, Billy Eichner, Adam Lambert, Thora Birch, Sarah Silverman, Martin Short and more.
-Warner Bros. is eager to release Wonder Woman 1984 in 2020, but there likely won’t be decision about its debut for at least another few weeks as movie theatres in parts of New York are reopening. I still don’t think it’s gonna happen this year.
–Jake Gyllenhaal is teaming up with Canadian director Denis Villeneuve for a new HBO limited series. (I still haven’t forgiven either of them for the ending of their last project together, Enemy.)
–Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fischer hosted a Borat screening that was attended by Katy Perry, Josh Gad and Ariana Grande.
-Aw man, Jeff Bridges announced on Twitter last night that he has lymphoma.
-We could all use a little good news and Zendaya is delivering: two special episodes of Euphoria are coming to HBO in December.
–This voting PSA from the Succession cast made me really miss Succession!
–Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis‘ gay romcom is coming to Hulu, which sucks for us Canadians.
