Joel McHale

Even Robert Downey Jr. Loves Mr. Robot

Amber Heard has retracted her spousal support request, saying she only asked for it because she thought it was standard operating procedure in a divorce case, and wants to focus on the “very serious real issue of domestic violence.”

-Meanwhile, Heard called the police yesterday, claiming that Johnny Depp’s team entered their L.A. home and began taking out furniture and art.

Shia LaBeouf‘s latest are project, #TakeMeAnywhere, has him asking the locals in the Boulder, Colorado area to give him rides to wherever they feel like. Don’t fail us, Coloradans! Deserted locales, abandoned warehouses, deep holes — the choice is yours!

-Not surprisingly, Joel McHale’s sons are awesomely sarcastic. The each demanded $125 to be in his People interview and when one of them was asked what he likes most about his dad, he answered “That he gives us money.” Is it creepy to want to hang with children?

-Speaking of Community stars, Donald Glover is reportedly joining Spider-Man: Homecoming. Not as Spider-Man, but at least he’s getting that Marvel bank somehow.

Nick Jonas says he once ate a weed lollipop before the Young Hollywood Awards and while he was walking the red carpet, he got a NARB (non-apparent reason boner). I…don’t know why we needed to know that.

-No one wants to play celebrity-based games like they want to play Kim Kardashian’s. Excuse me while I weep for humanity.

-That’s not stopping Kanye West from trying. He’s going ahead with his video game — in which you play his dead mother.

Alexander Skarsgard’s new Tarzan movie looks terrible — but I’ve got no problems watching him kiss baby kangaroos.

-This Instagram photo of Justin Theroux has me feeling real, real good about the new Leftovers season, guys. Real good.

Liam Hemsworth (aka – the other one) played slip and flip with Jimmy Fallon — which combines the slip ‘n slide with flip cup. Dear everyone I know: we’re playing this all summer!

-Office alert: Ricky Gervais says Netflix will stream his David Brent movie.

Retta somehow managed to get Michelle Williams to participate in a Snapchat, making her a goddamn American hero.

-The cast of Misfits is taking over the world and I love it!

Justin Bieber just wore khaki shorts over dad jeans. Wait, is that a thing now?
-Everything old is new again. There’s another season of Curb Your Enthusiasm in the works. The last episode aired in September 2011, so it’ll be at least 5 years between seasons.

-ATX TV fest organizers spent $10,000 on renovating Panther Field for last week’s Friday Night Lights reunion, which was in such poor condition that NBC’s Revolution filmed one of its apocalyptic scenes there. Worth it.

Jamie Foxx was spotted in Toronto. Also in TO these days? Katie Holmes. (Sidenote: I just finished reading Movie Star — which is great — but it’s so obviously based on her and I’m awash in pro-Katie feels rn.)

-Oh god. My So-Called Life star Wilson Cruz says his mother’s stepsister was one of the victims in the Orlando shooting.

-Here’s the trailer for Pete’s Dragon, starring Bryce Dallas Howard and Robert Redford.

Claire Danes Talks MSCL, Body Shaming and Baldness


-I really love Claire Danes‘ new Allure cover story, where she talks about how fans still approach her about My So-Called Life (my top 3 show of all time, just behind Buffy and TXF), how she once burned all her hair off with a perm, and how she’s learned to accept her body: “I’m attractive enough. I can do the work I want to do. I’ve found a wonderful man who wants to make out with me. I’m good.”

-Ohhh boy. It’s great that The Hollywood Reporter gathered 6 actresses from all different age groups to talk about the pay gap in their new roundtable interview, but how did anyone look at this photo and not think “hmmm, we may have a problem here”? And their “mea culpa” about its whiteness after Twitter bashed them for it is laughable. I mean, they’re right that it reflects a disturbing lack of diversity among this year’s predicted Oscar hopefuls. But perhaps that’s something that should have been addressed in their story?

-Also, did Brie Larson forget that she actually got the part she’s lamenting here?

-In less problematic cover news, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt get cuddly for the cover of Vanity Fair Italia.

-The Ant Man gag reel is short but cute. Kinda like Ant Man.

-The season 2 trailer for Agent Carter has landed and I am so here for it! (And her killer red sunglasses.)

-This woman won a lunch date with George Clooney and is somehow coherent enough to talk about it without fainting.

-Just when I thought I had reclaimed my life, there’s more to the “Zola’s Road Trip with a White Bitch She Met at Hooters” story! I’m going to need at least four days to fully process this…

-People magazine skipped over Chris Pratt, Daniel Craig and Idris Elba to name David Beckham the Sexiest Man Alive?!?

-Now that the embargo has lifted, the early reviews are coming in for Michael B Jordan‘s performance in Creed — and they’re glowing.

Jesse Eisneberg wrote a piece about film critics for The New Yorker and film critics are supes unhappy with him right now.  (I thought it was funny.)

-Welp. A judge just granted a new hearing in the Serial case surrounding Adnan Syed.

-It’s cute that all the One Direction boys (except for Harry Styles) are fronting like they’ve never hooked up with a fan.

Rose McGowan (sort of) apologized for her rant against Caitlyn Jenner — while spelling her name wrong.

-Has Avril Lavigne moved on Ryan Cabrera? That headline would be so lit if this were 2006…

Nene Leakes appeared on The View — and then tweeted about how much she hated it.

-I only know Bella Thorne as the mean girl in The Duff, but if she keeps dropping thinly veiled blind items I’m going to join (start?) her fan club.

Joel McHale‘s The Soup has been canned (like soup).

Matthew McConaughey and Kate McKinnon are banter-ific in his SNL promos.

-I don’t hate the first trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, mostly because it’s all about Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain and Charlize Theron chewing scenery and treating Chris Hemsworth like eye candy.

-The Zoolander 2 trailer made me laugh a couple of times, so that’s something.

Cate Blanchett covers the new issue of Porter, where she talks about being intimidated by other mothers, and praises Emma Watson‘s UN speech. “It was brilliant, such an incredible use of her airspace, and really passionate. It was fantastic.”

Lorde was adorably on Fallon last night, talking about how weird it is to be friends with Taylor Swift.

-Game of Thrones released a tiny Season 5 teaser, which puts the emphasis on Arya. No complaints here.

Jennifer Aniston pranked an interviewer by “pretending” to be rude and mean. But it was all a joke! Ha ha, isn’t she a riot? :/

-She’s also wearing fake boobs on Ellen. Sigh. I’m so tired of this promo tour already.

-Meanwhile, this Cake trailer should be subtitled “Jennifer Aniston really, really wants an Oscar, you guys!”
