Channing Tatum Loses at Jenga — And We All Win!

-If this is the result of Channing Tatum losing a game of Jenga, he should always always be playing Jenga.

Anjelica Huston gave a free-wheeling interview to Vulture and although her views on #MeToo and her defense of Jeffrey Tambor and Woody Allen aren’t great, most of her other answers are amazingly candid.  She claims that after she beat Oprah Winfrey at the Oscars, the TV icon wouldn’t speak to her when they crossed paths, and talked about the bad behavior of costars Eddie Murphy and Bill Murray (“He was a shit to me on Life Aquatic”), and ex-boyfriends Jack Nicholson and Ryan O’Neal (“He head-butted me. He took my head in his hands and hit it with full force against his head because he couldn’t find me at a party”).

-Wow, how cute is Princess Charlotte in these newly released portraits from the palace?

-Now that Endgame has been in theatres for a bit, the stars are starting to share more bts stuff. Robert Downey Jr. posted pics from a lunch he hosted for the ladies of MCU, while Chris Pratt and Elizabeth Olsen shared videos from a crowded day on set.

-Meanwhile, this video of Anthony Mackie roasting Tom Holland during an interview is pure gold, as is this interview with Chris Hemsworth trying to remember all the MCU movies.

Emma Bunton insists there’s no drama between her and Mel B after that fling reveal: “We’re in the studio and we’re laughing, we love the drama.”

Lucy Liu got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, and her Charlie’s Angels costar Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz showed up to support her.

-Wait, we have been mispronouncing Lloyd Dobler’s name all this time?!

-HBO has released the trailer for season two of Succession. That show took quite a few episodes for me to get into it, but now I’m all in.

-Every new trailer for Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson‘s Late Night makes me more and more excited for this movie.

-Hulu threw a star-studded presentation in NYC this morning, where they debuted new trailers for George Clooney’s Catch 22, the latest season of The Handmaid’s Tale, and the one I’m most excited about: the Veronica Mars revival.  Damn, this trailer looks good!

-This is a really fascinating deep dive into the writers room on The Good Place.

-When Sophie Turner realized she was on the Jumboton at MSG, she chugged a glass of red wine. Which is both gross and awesome.

-Five years after it first aired Andy Daly revisits the pancakes episode of Review, which might be my favourite half-hour of television ever.

-The Stranger Things season 3 trailer is here. The bit with Steve geeking out with imaginary lightsabers with Dustin in front of the hot girl warmed my heart.

Jordan Peele hid three Corey Feldman Easter eggs in Us.

-Bill & Ted 3 is finally, officially happening. I don’t know how Keanu Reeves is making this haircut work, but he really is.

Mindy Kaling just got a straight-to-series Netflix comedy inspired by her childhood.

Ricky Gervais‘ new Netflix show After Life, about a grieving widower whose suicide attempt is interrupted by a dog, is getting rave reviews.

-Speaking of rave reviews, critics are digging Jann Arden’s six-part series, which debuts tonight.

-Today Disney closed their $71 billion acquisition of Fox entertainment business, one of the biggest media consolidations in Hollywood history. It brings nearly all Marvel heroes and villains under one owner, with the Fox-owned X-Men and Deadpool now in the Disney-controlled MCU. (It’ll be interesting to see if they’ll be able to keep the Deadpool movies profane despite Disney’s squeaky clean rep.) On the TV side, Disney now has a massive TV studio with A-list showrunners like Seth MacFarlane, Lee Daniels and Kurt Sutter.  They also acquired Fox’s 30% stake of Hulu, which now gives Disney a controlling interest of 60%.

-Here’s the first trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. People are going crazy for it, but I’m not sold yet.

-Here’s the first trailer for Lucy in the Sky, starring Natalie Portman, Jon Hamm, Zazie Beetz and Dan Stevens. It’s produced by Reese Witherspoon and is the directorial debut of Legion/Fargo creator Noah Hawley.  So yeah, I’m in.

Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay Lead the Charge on Change

Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay

Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay cover Marie Claire, where they talk about the importance of inclusion and representation, and learning how to not obsess about accommodating others.

-Sad news for for those of you who even knew they were dating: Rita Ora and Andrew Garfield split up.

Kit Harrington told Stephen Colbert about the end of Game of Thrones: “I was very shocked and surprised at certain events unfolding, and then I blubbed my eyes out. I cried.”

-I’ve watched this clip of Jennifer Hudson and Tom Jones spontaneously singing at each other more times than can be considered normal.

Keri Russell and Adam Driver (who are costarring on Broadway) are so damn funny and charming in this NYT profile.

-You can tell Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson have done a few movies together by this point; their chemistry is really easy going and nice. The Captain Marvel pair sang Ariana Grande and took a lie detector test on Carpool Karaoke.

-Also, Larson and Jackson sang “Shallow” on The Jonathan Ross Show and they were pretty damn great.

Heidi Montag defended The Hills reboot’s lack of diversity by pointing out her co-stars’ hair colours. So that happened.

-Also, I keep forgetting that Mischa Barton is in this thing.

Gwyneth Paltrow says that her persona shift from a whiskey-drinking, cigarette-smoking cool girl to a health nut had everyone “thinking I was a crackpot.” Who is this whiskey-drinking badass she’s speaking of?

-Not surprisingly, Idris Elba‘s Netflix comedy about a DJ-turned-nanny isn’t getting glowing reviews. I want more for him than this. (And I definitely want more for him than taking over Will Smith’s role in Suicide Squad.)

-HBO’s The Case Against Adnan Syed will follow Amy Syed’s process of seeking and winning an appeal post-Serial.

-I liked this piece a lot about how Steven Spielberg isn’t right about Netflix — but he’s not entirely wrong either. I’ve been surprised by they lack of debate and the full-throated support of Netflix (who does some not great stuff). At the very least, they *should* disclose their box office numbers if they want to be Oscar contenders.

-Oh my goodness, the Good Omens trailer is all kinds of fun.

-I very much enjoyed this look back at Julia Roberts’ “Fellini summer”, a dramatic few months which included leaving fiance Kiefer Sutherland for Jason Patric, fighting with Steven Spielberg on Hook, being hospitalized for the “flu”, and walking away from Shakespeare in Love.

-You know, I’ve been pretty checked out on Arrow for a while and mostly just catch up with it out of routine these days, but compiling all these cast and fan social media posts about the show’s ending for this story hit me harder than I thought it would, especially Stephen Amell‘s tearful Facebook video. There were seasons when I LOVED this show, and I’m glad it’s getting to go out on its own terms.

-Meanwhile, I’m thinking this TV blind item from a while ago was probably about Amell.

-The trailer for Mindy Kaling’s Late Night starring Emma Thompson is everything I’ve ever wanted.
