-Congrats to Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, who’ve welcomed a baby girl via surrogate.
–Adele posted a tearful video about cancelling her Vegas residency the day before she was set to start. “We’ve tried absolutely everything we that can to pull it together in time, and for it to be good enough for you, but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID… half my team and half my crew are down with COVID they still are and it’s been impossible to finish the show.” It’s a heartbreaking video but god, I hope she figures out a way to make it up to the fans who’d already travelled to Vegas for this weekend’s show. She’s clearly there already so I wonder if she could host an event for any ticket holder who can prove they booked their hotel before she made the announcement or something?
-Covid keeps screwing up Tom Cruise‘s plans. Mission: Impossible 7 & 8 have both been delayed to 2023 and 2024, respectively.
–Jennifer Coolidge told Jimmy Fallon that Ariana Grande doing an impression of her on his show helped her career. The actress, who starred in Grande’s “Thank U Next” music video, shared, “You should know, it was sort of the beginning of a lot of cool things that happened for me. I was going through a dead zone, not much was going on. Then Ariana did this imitation on your show and you encouraged her. And then this ball got rolling.”
-Meanwhile, she’s returning to The White Lotus for season two, thank god.
-Supernatural fans, rejoice: a cast-heavy rewatch podcast series is coming.
–Cynthia Nixon responded to Chris Noth’s removal from the finale of HBO Max’s And Just Like That following allegations of sexual assault. “I think we were very lucky that those changes were able to be made. And I think we are very proud of our show.”
-Speaking of And Just Like That, Sarita Choudhury (who plays Carrie’s real estate agent Seema) says she was “shocked” by the flak the show got.
–Whoopi Goldberg is back in the trailer for Star Trek: Picard’s second season.
–Bill Paxton’s family can seek punitive damages against Cedars-Sinai in a wrongful death suit. The late actor’s family claims the hospital and his doctor covered up their negligence by not performing an autopsy and they didn’t learn one hadn’t been done until after the actor had been cremated.
-Um, should I be watching Peacemaker? ‘Cause this clip of Adrian Chase/Vigilante is amazing (and not cause it stars the cute guy from Bridgerton and UnREAL).
-Sony has yet to secure a date for Spider-Man: No Way Home in China, but the country will allow Woody Allen’s recent romcom a release.
–Will Forte returns to his SNL roots in the promos for this weekend’s show.
–Jesse Eisenberg’s directorial debut, When You Finish Saving the World starring Julianne Moore and Finn Wolfhard, is getting good reviews out of Sundance.
-Apple TV’s “Everyone but Jon Hamm” commercial is cute.
–Sam Claflin plays a stodgy author whose book becomes a bestseller in Mexico when the translator (Verónica Echegui) rewrites it in Amazon’s Book of Love, which debuts Feb 4.
–Bruce Willis, Luke Wilson and Devon Sawa star in the trailer for Gasoline Alley.
