Veronica Mars Arrives Early, Screws Up Our Weekend

veronica mars crave tv

-Well, here’s a kick in the pants. During the Veronica Mars Comic Con panel, Kristen Bell announced that all the new episodes are now available on Hulu — a week early. (Crave TV dropped it early here in Canada, too.)  Instead of being ecstatic, most fans on my Twitter TL are pissed. I get it — people hadn’t finished their rewatches. Plus, I had plans this weekend and now I just wanna curl up and watch it. No to mention that from a publicity point of view it’s just dumb. The fans who would generate the most buzz were at that Comic Con panel and are now angry that they have to decide if they want to hole up in their hotel room bingeing it instead of attending the event they spent hundreds of dollars on. Not to mention that every TV writer who was going to cover their panel is now scrapping those stories and their previews in order to quickly pull together their recaps. Just dumb.

-In less infuriating Kristen Bell news, she and Lin-Manuel Miranda met each other at Comic Con and had a mutual lovefest/freakout.

Jamie Lee Curtis announced two final Halloween movies at Comic Con.

-The Avengers cast didn’t make it to Comic Con, but a bunch of them sent cute video messages.

-I agree with this entire take about why Chris Pratt is the worst Chris.

-I love this Natasha Lyonne photo shoot!

-I’m trying not to get too excited about the adaptation of The Hating Game, but they just cast goddess Gina Torres as Lucy’s boss!

-Brad Pitt grapples with his father’s actions in the new trailer for Ad Astra.




The Stars of Ghostbusters Take Over Elle


-I love all four Elle covers featuring the stars of Ghostbusters!

-Speaking of Ghostbuster stars, here’s photographic proof that Melissa McCarthy is on the set of the Gilmore Girls revival — complete with Sookie’s trademark headscarf.

Lin-Manuel Miranda penned a powerful op-ed against the ticket-purchasing bots that are monopolizing Broadway sales. “You shouldn’t have to fight robots just to see something you love.”

-Speaking of Miranda, his edition of Carpool Karaoke is my new favourite — though I wish he had another song or two before Audra McDonald, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Jane Krakowski climbed into the backseat. Still, I got goosebumps when they started in on “Seasons of Love,” and Audra‘s final note on “One Day More”? Jesus.

-Meanwhile, James Corden explained to Stephen Colbert how Carpool Karaoke went from a lowly sketch idea to a phenomenon.

-A computer expert has authenticated Amber Heard‘s texts referencing Johnny Depp‘s alleged abuse, while one of her friends is defending her by saying, “How much evidence does a woman need to present?”

-Meanwhile, TMZ continues to work for Team Depp.

Beyoncé referenced Khalessi in her powerful CFDA fashion icon acceptance speech. (She also slayed in a Givenchy ladysuit.)

-Speaking of the CFDAs, this might be my favourite look ever on Jessica Chastain.

-A Quentin Tarantino-produced film put out a casting call for “whores” because the world is awful.

Jamie Lee Curtis cosplayed with her son for the Warcraft premiere, a movie she’s not even in. That makes her a pretty boss mom.

-Meanwhile, Warcraft is KILLING it overseas — despite being called ‘The Battlefield Earth’ Of The 21st Century.’

Daniel Radcliffe freaked out at the sight of his historical doppelgangers on The Tonight Show. “What is it about me that I look like so many stern old ladies?”

-Hmmm…this doesn’t bode well: Chris Messina will not be a regular on the next season of The Mindy Project.

Helen Mirren is endorsing Kim Kardashian’s nude selfies: “I love shameless women. Shameless and proud!”

-Hmmm…I’m so curious which two TV shows fired Kerry Washington for not being “hood” enough.

-I wish I could unsee Meryl Streep donning a fat suit and orangeface to impersonate Donald Trump.

Will Smith will serve as a pallbearer at Muhammad Ali’s funeral.

-Speaking of Will, his daughter Willow joined him onstage to perform “Summertime.”

Scott Speedman was told to put his shirt on for Animal Kingdom. I KNEW there was a reason I wasn’t recording that show! (Also, this interview reminds me what a goddamn charmbomb his is. Cast him in everything, Hollywood.)

-Well, this is terrifying:  Jeremy Jordan is trying to save his cousin from a “pray away the gay” camp.

-I don’t think Supergirl should cast Superman because he could threaten to overwhelm the show BUT if they must, these suggestions are great. Matt Bomer doesn’t seem realistic, but Scott Porter or Enver Gjokaj? YASS!

-An adorable girl vomited on Paula Abdul after dancing to Beyoncé on SYTYCD. Paula, to her credit, rolled with it.

-This photo that Reese Witherspoon tweeted from the Big Little Liars set makes me even more excited to see this movie. I loved the book and the cast is insane: Nicole Kidman, Adam Scott, Laura Dern, Zoe Isabella Kravitz, Shailene Woodley.

Selena Gomez caught a fan FaceTiming at her show and got in on the action.

-The Japanese Ghostbusters trailer reveals more footage.
