–Nicki Minaj’s wedding ring is valued at over $1 million. It’s so big it looks like costume jewelry, but good on her, I guess.
–Kevin Hart shared an intense video about his recovery following his car accident.
-This is a very good read: the writer who called out David Letterman for sexual favoritism a decade ago sat down with him recently to talk about it.
–Andrew Garfield is going to star in Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s Netflix adaptation of tick, tick…boom, from Rent playwright Jonathan Larson. I like all the words in that sentence!
-As someone who hasn’t read the comic, this perfectly captures my entire thought process while watching HBO’s The Watchmen.
-Critics are starting to talk about the High Fidelity series with Zoe Kravitz and the buzz is GOOD.
-TV critic Alan Sepinwall spoke with David Simon (creator of The Wire and The Deuce) about those allegations against James Franco and their parallels with stories depicted on The Deuce, and wow did Simon not come off well. He scolded Sepinwall (and other journalists) for not distinguishing Franco from others accused of #MeToo misconduct, saying “the fundamental difference is that James Franco didn’t seek to use his position to have sex with anyone.” Yes, it’s important to deal with each individual case differently but for him to be the arbiter of what is and is not a fireable offense, while also claiming that Franco didn’t understand his position of power over the other actors on set, is really disappointing. Especially because Simon is known for being an advocate for journalists and a commentator on systematic discrimination.
-It’s Halloweeen week, which means Ellen scared the crap out of Saoirse Ronan not once, but twice.
–Shia LaBeouf says he was diagnosed with PTSD due to his child stardom which doesn’t sound so far-fetched to me.
-Huh. Amazon Studios’ chief says that despite the industry calling Mindy Kaling‘s Late Night “an example of a failure from Amazon,” the film has “been watched in the U.S. more than any other movie in the short time it’s been on” their streaming service.
-Speaking of movies starring Emma Thompson, Lainey loved Last Christmas and that’s good enough for me!
-I binged the six new episodes of Bojack Horseman on Netflix this weekend and it was so, so good.
