–Prince Harry and Megan Markle were strolling through a park holding hands near my office, and I’m not gonna lie — for a sec I considered going for a lil creepin’ coffee break. But there are so many new pictures of the two of them coming out today, I really didn’t need to. Her ripped jeans was a bit of a surprise; I wonder how her style is going to change after she marries into the pantyhose family?
–George Clooney did an interview with the Daily Beast and let loose about politics. Some choice quotes: “Steve Bannon is a pussy,” “Hollywood elite? I don’t have a star on Hollywood Boulevard, Donald Trump has a star on Hollywood Boulevard! Fuck you!,” and “It was frustrating because I never saw [Hilary Clinton] elevate her game. I never saw it.” The more he talks about politics and the more he begins answers with “if I was President of the United States,” the more I wonder what his future plans are.
-I kind of love that Idina Menzel just keeps marrying her Rent costars...
-Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has a show about to drop on Amazon called The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and the early buzz is great. No wonder they just locked her and her husband down for a multi-year deal. I’m guessing that means more GG episodes aren’t happening though?
-What is Paramount Network and how can I watch Taylor Kitsch as David Koresh in their six-part Waco mini-series?
-Some Ain’t It Cool News contributors have stepped down in wake of Harry Knowles allegations (which he denies).
-Disney developing a Cyrano the Moor musical from Moonlight writer Tarell Alvin McCraney, starring David Oyelowo. Man, I like ALL of those words!
-Goddammit, why do they keep giving Greg Berlanti new shows? He’s currently juggling 10(!) projects. I like his joints well enough (though I think the quality has gone way down on most — probably because he’s spread too thin), but is there not any fresh blood in Hollywood?
–Chris Pratt did a “which famous Chris are you” quiz — and did not get Chris Pratt.
–Mandy Moore had an engagement party and Minka Kelly documented the whole thing on Instagram.
-Pretty Little Liars is getting a Mona-based spinoff. Makes sense.
-It’ll be interesting to see what happens to the new Star Trek. It debuted strong last night on CBS with 9.6 million viewers, but now it moves to a subscription-only model in the US. I thought it was ok but I’m not sure if I’m going to keep up with it — which is way easier to do here because it airs on regular TV. I can’t imagine many people outside of a niche audience are going to pay for CBS All Access for just one show.
-Here’s the new trailer for Angelina Jolie’s First They Killed My Father, which is getting good reviews.
-The Barden Bellas are back aca-at it again in this trailer for Pitch Perfect 3. “Pick up your tits” might be my new catchphrase.
