Orange Is the New Black

Rashida Jones’ Secrets of Success

The cover of Wired magazine featuring Rashida Jones.

-Why isn’t Rashida Jones on the cover of more magazines? Her guide to finding happiness at work in this month’s Wired is awesome. (Even more awesome: she’s co-writing the script for Toy Story 4!)

-Us Weekly claims Cameron Diaz is taking a break from acting so she can try to have a baby. Well, I guess that sounds better than “she’s taking a break from acting until science has figured out a way to permanently erase her Annie performance from casting directors’ collective memories.”

Working with Jared Leto sounds about as relaxing and rewarding as you’d expect.

-Today Show co-shot Willie Geist accidentally called Amanda Seyfried “Titsy” this morning, and she laughed it off instead of responding by calling him “Ass Face Dicksy,” which proves she’s a much better person than I.

-I still haven’t finished Orange Is the New Black (only one episode left and then I never have to hear that theme song again!), but I already love this Vulture article based on the headline alone: Is Piper Chapman Actually the Worst?

-Fox’s Sleepy Hollow just pulled out of Comic-Con this year because production on the show is starting sooner than expected. Too bad; I really wanted to watch that panel and see how the cast interacts because the stories about Nicole Beharie are bananas.

-It swells my heart to see all the positive early reviews for Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck movie. Like, there’s serious swelling happening, y’all. I might need an ice pack.

-Celebs took to Twitter to react to the awesome landmark decision to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states.

-After the SCOTUS ruling, NKOTB’s Jonathan Knight took his boyfriend’s last name on Twitter, which is the goddamn sweetest.

-A bunch of loonies demonstrated outside a Magic Mike XXL screening to protest Sofia Vergara unwillingness to let her ex unfreeze their embryos. And in case you were wondering, she’s still not in that movie.

-A moment of silence, please: Jay Z and Beyonce were just dethroned as the highest paid celebrity couple by Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris.

-I’m really glad EW released their X Files photos early online, because if I didn’t see this pic of David Duchovny wearing Gillian Anderson like a backpack until my print magazine arrived, I would have scared everyone in my mail room with some stupidly high-pitched squeals. As it was, seeing it at work led to some inappropriate office fist pumping….

-Meanwhile, Gillian Anderson can’t dye her hair anymore without it falling out so she’s wearing a wig in the reboot and she wants everyone to chill the eff out about it already, ok?

-That’s right, advertisers. Feed my CW addiction. FEED IT!

-There is going to be not one, but two post-credit scenes at the end of Ant-Man. This is going to make the guy who sat next to me at Age of Ultron and sulked through the credits very happy.

-The latest Legend trailer really doubles down on Tom Hardy. Not that I’m complaining.

Lupita Nyong’o Is More Beautiful Than You

Lupita People cover

-People magazine redeemed itself by choosing Lupita Nyong’o as this year’s Most Beautiful Person. Flawless!

Gwyneth Paltrow is having a rough week. Not only was she just dethroned by Lupita, but she also had to get a restraining order against a guy who conned his way into her London house.

Justin Bieber wants to delay his DUI trial (he’s on vacation with his mom in Japan, after all…).

-Speaking of that Japanese vacation, Bieber had to apologize for posting a photo from his visit to a Japanese shrine honouring convicted war criminals.

Jon Hamm just called Bieber a “shithead.” Just when I thought I couldn’t love him more…

-Congrats to Jodie Foster, who wed photographer girlfriend Alexandra Hedison. The pair have been dating since last summer.

James Franco says that Kanye West wants him and Seth Rogen to perform “Bound 3” at the wedding (and by doing so, he might have accidentally revealed the wedding’s location).

-EW’s series finale coverage continues to impress. This week, the Friends creators look back at its ending.

-Speaking of Friends, Courteney Cox talks about her directorial debut Just Before I Go.

Madonna voiced her opinion on some really random things for Buzzfeed.

-Belated congrats to Matt Bomer, who got secret-married three years ago.

B.J. Novak thinks social media is making us all better writers. LOLZ YOLO SMH

-Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz is developing a new series for Netflix.

-The ladies of Orange Is the New Black get the cover treatment in next week’s EW. Meanwhile, the show has released the first scene from the season premiere. Piper be crazy!

-Speaking of new scenes, here’s the opener of Parks and Rec’s season finale.

-I guess all that Fockers money has dried up; Teri Polo just filed for bankruptcy.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus got naked and pretended to have sex with a clown for GQ. Yay?

-Allow Mischa Barton to introduce you to the concept of a rectangle of cleavage.

John Malkovich is getting his pirate on in this new promo for NBC’s Crossbones. The series is from the guy who created Luther, so I’m in.

Billy Bob Thornton says he and ex-wife Angelina Joliecheck in on each other all the time.”

-Sad: a Bachelorette contestant has died in a paragliding accident.

-I assumed this was a joke but it appears to be legit: the How I Met Your Mother spin-off cast Meg Ryan as Future Greta Gerwig. Expect lots of When Your Mother Met Harry headlines.

-News of a new Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie makes me happier than it should.

-“I’d like to do a job where I don’t have to tie women to beds.” Dream big, Jamie Dornan!

Alicia Silverstone‘s new parenting book is anti-vax, anti-diaper, anti-logic.

-I like to believe that every time Scott Speedman gets cast in a movie, an angel gets its wings.

-Here’s the first trailer for The Immigrant, starring Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner.

Blake Lively’s Not Pregnant

Blake Lively‘s rep is calling OK!’s cover story about her being pregnant “100% false.” Too bad; her household could use some good news this week.

-Here’s a photo of Matt Bomer dressed up as a fireman, because you deserve it!

-Why did Vogue Photoshop out one of Claire Danes’ legs and assume no one would notice?

Jay Leno showed Aaron Paul an old clip of him on 90210 — and he was adorably mortified.

-Also on last night’s late night circuit, Aubrey Plaza talked about the awkward (and unexpected) masturbation scene in her new film (which, btw, is getting great reviews).

-For a show that came out of nowhere with basically no publicity, Orange Is the New Black is killing it with critics. (Deservedly so. I binged through all 13 episodes in no time.) And it seems like its good word of mouth is paying off: more people watched Orange in its first week on Netflix than Arrested Development.

-I’m really liking Sundance’s new show, in which Jim Rash (Dean Pelton!) takes us into a TV show’s writers’ room. The first episode is all about Breaking Bad.

-Fingers crossed that Jason Reitman puts on another live script reading this year at TIFF. He hosted one last night in L.A. featuring the Breaking Bad pilot, where Rainn Wilson played Walt, Mae Whitman played Jesse, and Ellie Kemper played Marie.

Christina Aguilera (or at least her boobs) stars in Alejandro Fernández‘s new Spanish music video.

Michelle Williams is stunning in her new Louis Vuitton campaign.

-Here’s Donald Glover‘s new song. If he can’t be on Community full-time next season, at least he’s still giving us something.

-What kind of idiot hires Sarah Michelle Gellar for a TV show and then doesn’t put her on its poster? CBS is way overestimating the pull of Robin Williams.

This photo of Jesse Eisenberg‘s reaction to Robert Pattinson kissing a mystery woman slays me.

Kate and William named their baby George Alexander Louis.  Take it away, Twitter!

-In case you haven’t figured it out yet, Bruce Willis is kind of a jerk. Nothing makes me angrier than celebrities who refuse to help you promote their movies because they don’t think doing publicity is “fun” enough. It’s like they expect every part of their (already amazing) job to be blissful, and don’t want to play the promotion game because they didn’t get into acting to “sell.” Do you think a doctor has ever said “I’ll perform surgeries, but I refuse to fill in the charts because I didn’t get into medicine to do paperwork”?

-Here’s the first official look at Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix.

-I’m loving that this 1-minute horror short that was shot in Nova Scotia is going viral today.

Lost‘s Josh Holloway singing on Yo Gabba Gabba will make you melt.

-Congratulations, Piper Perabo! You managed to find the most unflattering shorts in the history of the world!

-The first clip for Elysium has landed. I hope this movie is as good as it looks.

-I really liked this interview with Tatiana Maslany. Still can’t believe she didn’t get an Emmy nod!

-The trailer they showed for Gravity at Comic Con is breathtaking. Nothing beats one of Alfonso Cuaron‘s signature long tracking shots.
