Lin-Manuel Miranda Is an Unstoppable Force

lin-manuel-vanity-fair

Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s cover profile in Vanity Fair makes him seem even nicer than you thought — which shouldn’t be possible.

-Royal dramaz! A new report claims that the drama-filled run-up to Meghan Markle‘s wedding, Kate Middleton was left in tears after an argument over Princess Charlotte’s dress.

-I kind of like that Taylor Swift is with someone who refuses to talk about her  in the press. When pressed about her in his GQ profile, Joe Alwyn responded “Someone’s private life is, by definition, private. No one is obliged to share their personal life.” Bad for gossip, but good for her.

-It’s starting to make more and more sense why Kim Cattrall didn’t want to do a third Sex and the City movie — Samantha’s main storyline reportedly revolved around Miranda’s 14-year-old son Brady lusting after her. Also, Mr. Big was supposedly going to die of a heart attack at the beginning of the movie, making it more about Carrie’s grief than the relationship between the four women. All in all, it sounds like she was smart to bow out, even if it turned her into the bad guy in the press.

David Beckham is getting some heat on Instagram for kissing his daughter (because people are the WORST), and Tom Brady has jumped to his defense.

Ariana Grande’s “thank u next” video will pay homage to Mean Girls and I can’t wait!

Adam Levine says he understands women because he has daughters. Oh well, OK THEN!

-I love this piece on Matthew Macfadyen. The fact that the douche on Succession is the same guy who played Mr Darcy still blows my mind.

Jaden Smith says he’s dating Tyler, The Creator. I mean, sometimes I say I’m dating Idris Elba, but that doesn’t make it true.

-Unlike her fellow creators, Ava DuVernay didn’t go the Netflix route. Instead, she’s signed a $100M deal with Warner Bros TV.

-In news that should surprise no one but delight everyone, a To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel is officially in the works.

-Amazon is pulling out the big guns for their Modern Love TV show. The cast includes Anne Hathaway, Dev Patel, Tina Fey, John Slattery, Catherine Keener, Andy Garcia, and Cristin Milioti.

Ethan Hawke gave a rousing speech at the Gotham Awards. “We are living in a time period where the environment, education, racial equality … they are being criminally disregarded. It’s a real problem. It’s unacceptable.”

-Green Book flopped hard at the box office. I wonder what that will do to its Oscar buzz?

-Yeah ok, I laughed at the red band trailer for What Men Want.

 

 

Kate Middleton Has a Baby Boy

-The royal baby boy has arrived! I will never get over the protocol of having to pose for photos so quickly after the birth. This is Kate just SEVEN HOURS after delivery!

-But when it comes to birth announcements that made me teary, Dwayne Johnson won the day with this Instagram post. He welcomed his second daughter with girlfriend Lauren Hashian.

Sarah Jessica Parker is still trying to sell us on SATC’s happy set vibe. When asked by Vulture about any resolution with Kim Cattrall, she said “I’d just like to remind everybody that there is no catfight. I have never uttered an unkind, unsupportive, unfriendly word, so I would love to redefine it…no, there is no catfight, there never has been a catfight. I’ve never fought with someone publicly in my life, nor would I. And I spent time with all of the women on the set. People need to recall that it wasn’t just two women on the set fighting because that just never happened.”

-We still have to wait a few weeks for the royal wedding, but here’s a clip from Meghan Markle’s TV wedding. (I know the guy who plays the DJ!)

-Remember that TV Line blind item a couple of weeks ago about a TV drama that should be a sure bet for renewal, except the lead actor’s terrible behaviour was jeopardizing its chances? Turns out it’s about Lethal Weapon’s Clayne Crawford. A Deadline reporter says “I have learned that Crawford has had a history of bad behavior on the show, and that he has been disciplined several times over complaints of emotional abuse and creating a hostile environment. I hear the issue has escalated to a point where other actors as well as crew on Lethal Weapon would feel uncomfortable being on set with him.” TV Line reports that Fox is thinking of recast him — possibly with a woman.

-Speaking of bad behaviour in TV, Brad Kern is not only still running NCIS: NOLA, his contract is reportedly going to be renewed by CBS. All despite the fact he’s been investigated multiple times for HR violations, according to Variety. Swell!

-Jesus, Shania Twain really stepped in it this weekend with an interview in the Guardian in which she said she would have voted Trump because “he seemed honest.” She took to Twitter to retract/apologize but the damage was done.

Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington are submitting for leads instead of supporting at the Emmys. They aren’t going to win either way, but this doesn’t help.

-I always preferred weekend 2 of Coachella. It has a more laidback vibe and the people who are there just to take Instagram photos have already left. Unfortunately it doesn’t live stream, so we missed Beyonce’s new wardrobe and Ariana Grande‘s surprise performance.

-This clip about Supergirl saving her favourite shirt before going on a mission addresses a lot of problems I have with superhero shows.

James Corden is doing a Carpool Karaoke primetime special tonight and did a whole Bruno Mars-inspired music video for it.

Universal FanCon was cancelled abruptly this weekend when organizers confirmed that they didn’t have enough money to cover the convention’s costs, and the way they’ve handled it is the biggest PR mess I’ve ever seen.

-Speaking of things that whipped fandoms into a frenzy this weekend, a reporter called out an Avengers actor for treating him badly on the junket (he has since deleted the tweets, but before he did he confirmed that it wasn’t Josh Brolin or Dave Bautista.) Whoever it is, Jessica Chastain  knows!

Amy Adams sees dead people in the creepy Sharp Objects trailer, HBO’s new miniseries based on Gillian Flynn’s book.

-It’s been a rough day in Toronto. I have comforted myself by watching the Crazy Rich Asians trailer an embarrassing amount of times. I’m not even sorry. This looks AMAZING!

Kim Cattrall Supports Cynthia Nixon

-She may be feuding with Sarah Jessica Parker, but Kim Cattrall still has (kind of?) nice words for at least one of her former SATC costars. She tweeted her support for Cynthia Nixon’s New York Governor bid. It wasn’t the most glowing endorsement, but still…

-The Shia Labeouf comeback tour is upon us. There’s a new biopic starring Lucas Hedges as Labeouf (because white dudes in Hollywood get countless chances for redemption), and now there’s a new Esquire profile, which mentions he turned down offers to appear in The Social Network, 127 Hours, and The Bourne Legacy.

Chris Evans is plotting is post-Captain America career.

Drew Barrymore wants you to know that she didn’t actually mean to insult Jake Gyllenhaal‘s acting skills.

I really hope this tweet is Gillian Anderson’s response to the news that they plan to continue The X Files without her. Or the reaction to the season finale which I haven’t watch yet, but according to the outrage on Twitter, did her character dirty. Whatever it’s about, it’s expert shade.

-In advance of this weekend’s march, George Clooney penned a letter to Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school students, telling them “You make me proud of my country again.” Bill Murray also expressed his support in an NBC News op-ed.

-Terrible: a firefighter died on the set of an Edward Norton-directed movie.

-According to a new lawsuit filed against Russell Simmons, a woman claims she met him when he invited her and her son backstage at a DefJam concert and then he trapped her in a hotel room and told her “I am going to f**k you or I’m going to f**k your son.”

-The Cannes red carpet is full of weird rules (like women have to wear heels) and they just added another one: no selfies.

Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon performed the history of sitcom theme songs.

Rosario Dawson stars in the Krystal trailer, directed by William H Macy.

-Andrew Garfield might be losing his mind in the trailer for Under The Silver Lake.
