Jason-Sudeikis-Ted-Lasso-EW

-EW has a spread about the new season of Ted Lasso, which can’t come soon enough!

-In Variety’s “Actors on Actors” series, Nicole Kidman told Chris Rock her fears about playing Lucille Ball in an upcoming movie. “I am way out of my comfort zone right now, Chris. I’m free-falling.”

-This article about Christopher Meloni used a lot of words to just say “his butt.”

Simu Liu says that his “recent comments on the ending of Kim’s Convenience were never meant to be a massive bombshell exposé.” I’m not sure what he was expecting here.

Jimmy Fallon thought the Canadian grocery store No Frills was an actual band.

Riz Ahmed posted an impassioned video, saying “I’m fed up of seeing Muslim characters on screen either negative or non existent.”

Caitlyn Jenner appeared on The View today and it did not go well for her.

Jean Smart filmed the Hacks finale’s funeral scene right after her husband died. (Also, I cannot believe this show was created by the guy who played Trey on Broad City.)

Megan Fox and Bruce Willis are FBI agents in the trailer for Midnight In The Switchgrass.

Ryan Reynolds lives inside a video game in the Free Guy trailer with Joe Keery and Jodie Comer.

-The first trailer for HBO Max’s new Gosssip Girl reboot has arrived. It follows a completely different set of characters from the original but is set in the same world, so I assume cameos are coming (at least from the parent characters).

Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock Strike a Pose

-Look at this photo of Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock in Lost City Of D, a movie about a reclusive romance novelist who goes on a book tour with her cover model. Get in my eyeballs, already!

Brad Pitt won joint custody of his kids and everyone seems kind of surprised by it (which is probs a bad sign). Angelina Jolie‘s team is appealing the decision.

-In this week’s episode of KUWTK, Kim Kardashian revealed that she had covid last fall. Buzzfeed dove into the timeline and worked out that it came soon after her infamous private island birthday bash.

-According to Heather Morris, Naya Rivera was the only “honest” one about Lea Michele‘s behavior on the Glee set. “It’s like, we absolutely could have stepped up and gone to the Fox execs and said how we felt about the situation and nobody really did. So now we are living in a culture where it’s acceptable to go do things like that, whereas I think many people were very scared.”

-I liked this profile on Emma Stone, who talks about Cruella, long cigarette holders, and her own origin story: “All I wanted to do was play the daughter on a sitcom!”

Rosario Dawson tweeted after the court dismissed the anti-trans case against her: “That these false claims came from someone we’ve known as chosen family for decades and who we were trying so hard to help out, as we have many times in the past, was very heartbreaking. Nevertheless, we have great empathy for him and have only ever wished him well.”

-I still can’t believe this is Kelly Osbourne.

Chris Noth is coming back as Mr. Big for the Sex and the City reboot.

Jennifer Lawrence Jumps on the Bennifer T rain

Jennifer Lawrence was on a podcast when the Bennifer news broke and lost her mind just like the rest of us. “Breaking breaking breaking f*cking news!”

Nicki Minaj called last year’s hit-and-run death of her father “the most devastating loss of my life.”

-Netflix is capitalizing on the success Bridgerton with a limited series that will tell Queen Charlotte’s origin story. It will be interesting to see if they actually lean into her race, since the main criticism of the series has been its handwaving away of racism.

Gillian Anderson will guest star on The Great, which might make me catch up on the show. I watched the first two episodes and liked it, and then promptly forgot about it.

-Also, Orlando is now buddies with Prince Harry.

-Black-ish is coming to an end after eight seasons.

-I don’t watch Batwoman, but apparently the show has fumbled Ruby Rose’s departure.
