-Once again, SNL has hired a new castmember seemingly without doing a basic Google search. New player Shane Gillis has been forced to apologize after racist and homophobic audio and tweets surfaced. And these weren’t from decades ago — they were from last year. (This audio clip in which he makes fun of Asian people is from TWO WEEKS ago!) He also called Judd Apatow and Chris Gethard the f-word. Oh, and he didn’t *actually* apologize; he just said “I’m happy to apologize to anyone who’s actually offended by anything I’ve said. My intention is never to hurt anyone but I am trying to be the best comedian I can be and sometimes that requires risks.” Ugh. Being a bigot isn’t risky; it’s the laziest thing ever.

-Speaking of Chris Gethard, he once did this very good interview about comedians being intentionally offensive.

-The internet is convinced Rihanna is pregnant.

Brad Pitt told Ellen DeGeneres that she once hit on his then-girlfriend at a party: “I was flattered.”

-I don’t know how Vulture could have done a roundup of TIFF movies that are tearjerkers and not include The Friend, in which Jason Segel plays a man who moves in with his best couple friends when the wife is diagnosed with terminal cancer. My whole theatre SOBBED.

Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s book Fleishman Is in Trouble — which might actually be my fave novel this year — is getting the TV treatment.

-On the 25th anniversary of Party of Five’s premiere, the reboot has announced its premiere date. To celebrate its anniversary, let’s look back on this look back at its best episode. I remember my mother and I watching this together and totally falling apart when Claudia makes her ultimatum.

-This is a pretty shocking Photoshop fail of a Margot Robbie photo.

Italia Ricci and Robbie Amell Welcome Baby Boy

-Congrats to Italia Ricci and Robbie Amell, who welcomed their first child — a boy they named Robert Amell V. She’s been hilarious to follow on IG during her pregnancy. Also they got Thai food from Pai delivered to their Toronto hospital room last night, so they clearly have good taste.

James McAvoy says Jennifer Lawrence‘s mother told him the actress was born with teeth.

-I like everything about EW’s cover story on Hustlers.

Mandy Moore is releasing new music next week and I hope it’s amazing and acts as a giant middle finger to Ryan Adams.

-Don’t expect Rihanna to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show anytime soon.

Critics are divided on Taika Waititi’s Holocaust dramedy Jojo Rabbit, which premiered this week at TIFF.

-This article on a publicist whose job is to babysit actors during TIFF is a great read. “You would think that the Mark Wahlbergs and J.Los of the world would be the most demanding but, A-list talent like them know their job and know what they are there for. The C-listers are new and so excited to do whatever you need and they don’t question anything. They’re great. The problem, in general, is the B-listers. They are about to launch, but they also know they aren’t nobodies so they push [boundaries] with you. Some will demand, ‘Well, Julia Roberts got that why don’t I get that?’ And you’re like, ‘Because you’re not Julia Roberts?'” I’m very curious about who the indie-actress-turned-franchise star could be. Jennifer Lawrence? Brie Larson?

J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot just landed a $250M all-encompassing partnership — including film, TV, video games, digital — with WarnerMedia.

John Greene‘s novel Looking for Alaska gets the TV treatment in this trailer for Hulu’s new adaptation. All the music is from 2005, so it’s basically made for me.

Kelly Clarkson Is Ready To Tackle Daytime

kelly clarkson daytime talk show

-Ahead of her syndicated talk show (premiering Sept. 9), Kelly Clarkson covers People and talks about prioritizing her family (“When we were doing the schedule for the show, I was like, ‘I have to drop my kids off at school.’ And I’m always the one who puts them to bed”), impressing her kids (“Our 3-year-old doesn’t get it but the 5-year-old, she’s very clever. She’s already asked that I have Chris Martin on to sing ‘Yellow.’ It’s her favorite song”) and recounts bursting a cyst on her ovary while filming live finales of The Voice — just one week after suffering through a burst appendix while hosting the Billboard Music Awards (“Blake [Shelton] was talking to me and all of the sudden, everything he said just went away and I had to grab his arm and I was like, ‘Something is wrong.’ That was more painful than the appendicitis. It was literally a week after my surgery so I was freaking out!”).

-Holy shit, I want Hugh Grant to ghostwrite all of my insults from now on. This is savage!

Martha Stewart backhand complimenting Gwyneth Paltrow is a thing of beauty.

-This interview with Joel Schumacher is so very, very juicy that the bit about a post-Pretty Woman Julia Roberts crying in his arms in the backseat of a car and saying “I never needed to be this famous” isn’t even the best anecdote! When asked about shooting Batman Forever he said: “Tommy Lee Jones is, and I say this with great respect, a scene stealer. Well, you can’t steal the scene from Jim Carrey. It’s impossible. And, I think it irked Tommy. He wasn’t kind to Jim. He did not act towards Jim the way an Oscar winner with a star on Hollywood Boulevard, being the oldest member of the cast, and having such a distinguished career and the accolades to go with it, should have acted towards Jim.” He also called Val Kilmer “psychotic.” “I do know Marlon Brando threw Val’s cellphone in the bushes [on the set of The Island of Dr. Moreau] and said, ‘Young man, don’t confuse your ego with the size of your salary, ever.’ Here’s the difference between Val Kilmer and Tommy Lee Jones. I don’t care what state Tommy is in emotionally, when that camera rolls, there is no bad take. Val is a different story.”

-I am very here for Lauren Graham‘s return to TV.

Netflix just nabbed a show about female journalists and politics from super producer Greg Berlanti and The Vampire Diaries creator Julie Plec, inspired by NYT writer Amy Chozick’s best-selling memoir about being on the campaign trail with Hilary Clinton.
