Brooklyn Nine-Nine Canceled by Fox

brooklyn-nine-nine-canceled

-It’s killing season in TV land this week. Fox just canned Brooklyn Nine-Nine (nooo!!!), The Mick and Last Man on Earth — but weirdly, they have room for a dumb Tim Allen sitcom. They still haven’t announced the fate of Lethal Weapon (I’m still shook about how bad an actor’s behaviour must have been to get thrown off a show the network wanted to renew. Actors behaving badly is the norm, so it must have been REALLY bad).  Over on NBC, Law & Order: SVU, Blindspot and the Chicago shows will survive but there’s still no word on Timeless.

-I don’t know why Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt did a couples photo shoot, but I’m not complaining.

-This was such a good troll for Veronica Mars fans…

Amal Clooney was so worried her Met Gala dress would rip, she changed in the gift shop. Seems like a lot of work for a not-great dress.

-So we’re in full Georgina Chapman comeback mode, right? First Scarlett Johannson wears Marchesa to the Met gaga, and now Vogue is giving her a soft-focus profile.

-In response to the profile, Yashar Ali wrote a rebuttal for HuffPo: “I’ve spoken to over a dozen survivors of Weinstein’s sexual predation about Chapman and all of them surprisingly said they believed she was aware, in some form, of Weinstein’s behavior. Two of them told me that Weinstein made misogynistic remarks to them in front of Chapman and she did not react in any way.”

Ariana Grande and Mac Miller have split after nearly two years of dating.

-People keep trying to put Justin Theroux and Emma Stone together. I’m going to continue to cling to a blind item I read that said she had no interest in dating him. I’m CLINGING to it!

-Hey Sylvester Stallone, your racism is showing.

Jennifer Garner made a music video about being a mom for Ellen. I don’t get it.

-I liked this interview with Nick Offerman: “After Parks and Rec, the parts coming my way were overweight men in briefs, crying.”

Jennifer Lopez and Jimmy Fallon faced off in a fast dance dance off!

-In an interview with Lana Del Rey for Elle, Kendall Jenner says it was “weird” when her younger sister had a baby before her.

Chris Brown is being accused of hosting a party at his L.A. home where a woman claims she was repeatedly raped by two of his friends.

-Spotify has removed R. Kelly music from its playlists, citing new hate content and hateful conduct policy. Now Sony and RCA need to drop Kelly from its roster.

-Writers for the original Roseanne series say they’re struggling to reconcile the character they wrote with the reboot’s new, Trump-loving character who jokes that her Muslim neighbors’ pile of fertilizer in their yard means they’re making a bomb. “I don’t recognize that character.”

-I really, really don’t want Roseanne to attempt to do a #MeToo episode.

-I kind of love that Jessica Chastain is walking the walk. She’s producing and starring in 355, a female spy movie with Penélope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Lupita N’yongo and Fan Bingbing.

-Watch Deadpool apologize to David Beckham for insulting his voice in the first movie.

-I love this: Patty Jenkins may earn nine times her Wonder Woman salary for the sequel, according to Variety.

-I guess I’m in the minority but I really enjoyed I Feel Pretty. Greta Gerwig did not.

-Watch John Cho‘s frantic hunt for his missing daughter in the first Searching trailer, also starring Debra Messing.

 

Chris Pine Pops Up in Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later

-Here’s the Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later trailer. Holy crap on a stick, is that Chris Pine?!?

-Also, this bit about Chris Pine in the Charles Taylor interview is great: “I don’t know why he isn’t getting every leading role there is. He’s gorgeous, he’s charming, he’s got a great level-headed presence, and what he does in Wonder Woman is amazing. He is there to show her off. That is really the mark of someone who knows how to act in front of a camera: I am going to step back a bit and let my co-star shine.”

-Meanwhile, I took this Buzzfeed quiz where you create a BLT and discover your perfect Chris, and I got Chris Evans. I’m very ok with that.

-JFC… Bill Cosby wants to hold seminars on how to avoid sexual assault accusations. Don’t assault people. There, I’ve just written his whole script for him.

Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler reunited for a “Really?!?” segment last night on the Late Show. Really.

-Also, Amy Poehler has a theory about Daniel Day Lewis’ retirement. It involves potato chips and misunderstandings.

-I had very little interest in seeing Rough Night, but the trailers for Girls Night have me psyched. Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and the cast are featured in an upcoming episode of Carpool Karaoke and the preview is great.

Ron Howard has officially taken over for the Hans Solo movie. According to EW, Lord & Miller were leaning into the comedy and allowing the stars to improv (which is what one does when one hires actors like Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge), but writer and Star Wars veteran Lawrence Kasdan wanted them to stick to the script. The kicker at the end of this article though…

-Also, who will get the finished film’s directing credit?  How will residuals be apportioned? Will Lord and Miller even be allowed to attend the premiere?  The directors guild is going have an interesting time figuring this one out.

NASA is not impressed with GOOP’s $120 bio-frequency healing sticker packs.

Alison Brie is doing some hard posing and smizing at the Glow premiere, but Dave Franco‘s presence makes it all better.

-It’s been a rough news week. Hey, here’s Justin Trudeau hugging an enthusiastic unicorn puppet for CBC Kids.

-The weirdest part about the Downton Abbey movie announcement is all the articles in which the cast seems surprised. “Well, tell my agent, because we’re still waiting to know.”

-Transformers: The Last Knight suffered a franchise-low opening day.

Naomi Watts‘ new Netflix series Gypsy is not getting good reviews.  THR says “maybe watch episodes 1, 7 and 10. Skip the rest. You won’t miss much and you might enjoy it.”

Taylor Swift put her music on streaming services and just made almost $400,000 in one week.

-HBO wants you to watch The Leftovers series finale so much, they put it up on YouTube for free. (I adored it, but if you didn’t watch the series you’ll be lost.)

Alexis Bledel, who did the best work of her career in The Handmaids Tale, will return as a series regular in Season 2 (which has been extended to 13 episodes from 10). Which probably means no more new Gilmore Girls for quite some time…

-I’m kinda glad Jennifer Lopez is going back to her romantic comedy roots. That’s where I like her best (outside of Out of Sight, but that felt like a fluke).

-This is a great read about a Facebook group of tens of thousands of Brendan Fraser fans. Surprising, sweet fandom shit like this makes me weirdly happy.

John Cho ponders death and romance in the Columbus trailer. Yes! John Cho in as the romantic lead in everything, please!

-Look at our girl Tatiana Maslany co-leading a movie alongside Jake Gyllenhaal. Look at her!!

Scott Eastwood Remembers Girlfriend Who Died In Car Crash

scott-eastwood-gq

Scott Eastwood covers the new issue of GQ Australia, in which he talks about losing a girlfriend to a car accident, and how his dad once punched him in the face when he was 16. And now I feel bad for Scott Eastwood. This is new.

-This is an excellent, excellent interview with Donald Glover about addressing black culture in his new show.

Sarah Paulson is joining Feud,  Ryan Murphy‘s new show based on the conflict between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. This cast is INSANE. Jessica Lange is Crawford, Susan Sarandon is Davis, Paulson is Oscar-winner Geraldine Page, Catherine Zeta-Jones is Olivia de Havilland, and Judy Davis is gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. I mean, jesus.

-Unfortunately, Paulson‘s career winning streak continues to not translate into fashion wins.

-The Anne of Green Gables TV adaptation has been picked up by Netflix. This is awesome! Someone I know is working on the production in Toronto.

-In his new interview with the Guardian, Miles Teller tries to do some serious damage control following that douchey Esquire interview. “If I read this and you call me an asshole, I’m going to be so pissed off.”

Jennifer Lawrence and Melissa McCarthy are topping Forbes 2016 list of highest-paid actresses again.

-I’m not sure why Halle Berry, Priyanka Chopra and Jodie Foster are doing dramatic readings of Britney Spears lyrics, but I’ll take it.

John Cho will play a wine connoisseur/con artist in a new series that sounds like it was lifted directly from my dreams.

-Speaking of shows straight out of my dreams, Idris Elba is making a docuseries where he attempts to become a professional kickboxer.

Joseph Fiennes has been cast as the male lead opposite Elisabeth Moss in Hulu’s take on The Handmaids Tale. Man, this summer is all about Atwood adaptation news, huh? I’m not complaining.

-I liked this defense of Mr Robot season 2. The show definitely zigged when I expected it to zag, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

-I have a very limited amount of gala tickets at TIFF this year and I didn’t want to waste them on films that will premiere at other festivals first, but this new trailer for La La Land means I no longer care about that. Gorgeous!
