Pete Davidson’s Triumphant Return

Pete Davidson‘s appearance on SNL this weekend was all kinds of wonderful. I love that he did it with his friend and former SNL writer John Mulaney, who knows a little something about substance abuse and anxiety.

-I can’t stop watching this video of Bryce Dallas Howard crying on command. What kind of witchcraft is this?!

-This is my favourite Keanu Reeves story of the week, but then again it’s only Monday.

-I’m highly skeptical of the Sun’s story about Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron dating, but man that would make for some juicy gossip. Especially since there’s been rumours of friction between Theron and Angelina Jolie.

-Meanwhile, homeowners who bought Make it Right houses in the wake of Katrina are suing Brad Pitt and the foundation for shoddy workmanship, who are in turn suing the architect in charge of the project.

Leslie Jones isn’t wrong to be pissed about the new Ghostbusters announcement. The way that it all went down definitely makes it seem like they’re trying to erase the last one.

-This is nice: Bon Jovi‘s restaurant is giving away free meals to furloughed workers.

Gillian Anderson is going to play Margaret Thatcher on The Crown. Between this and Olivia Colman on board to play Queen Elizabeth II, I might have to break down and watch this thing again.

-It didn’t take me long to stop following Noah Centineo on Instagram because his posts were killing my crush real quick, so I’m not super surprised by his defense of Logan Paul. Still gross, though.

-Here’s the first official image of Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding in Paul Feig‘s romantic comedy Last Christmas and I can’t wait to watch the crap out of this!

This thread about how the world treated Sinead O’Connor in 1992 is so worth your time (and will make you love Kris Kristofferson).

-I watched the Netflix doc on the Fyre festival this weekend, and the fact that Ja Rule is now trying to cast himself as a victim is rich.

-Also, if you watched it and were saddened by how the Bahamians were treated during the festival’s meltdown, consider donating to this GoFundMe for Maryann Rolle, who lost $50k of her personal savings in order to pay her staff when the fest organizers bailed. It’s already raised $140,071 of its $123,000 goal.

Russell Brand is in hot water after giving an interview in which he basically admitted to letting his wife handle most of the child-rearing duties.

-Ugh. While promoting Incredibles 2’s Oscar campaign, Brad Bird defended disgraced Pixar exec John Lasseter. “You’re navigating a world where men have acted a certain way for thousands of years. Way too late, but all of a sudden, they’re expected to change that on a dime and it’s necessary and it’s right. But it’s a little bit a gray area.” (Seems like a good time to revist this article.)

Millie Bobby Brown tries to make a connection in the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters teaser.

Judi Dench is accused of being a spy in the Red Joan trailer.

-Wow, I adore Taraji P. Henson’s new Marie Claire cover.

-First Armie Hammer dragged James Woods on Twitter, and now Amber Tamblyn is getting in on the action.  She originally tweeted “James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once. He wanted to take us to Vegas. ‘I’m 16’ I said. ‘Even better’ he said.” After he denied it she tweeted “Calling me liar, James? This is now far from over. That I can promise” and is now RT’ing other people’s gross stories about him.  I love this.

Prince Harry reportedly enjoyed an early birthday celebration this past weekend with Meghan Markle in London. He turns 33 on Friday.

-Another day, yet another Star Wars shakeup. Days after Colin Trevorrow  parted ways with the franchise, J.J. Abrams  was announced as the new writer/director of Episode IX.  Not the most inspired or diverse choice, but I get why they wanted to go the safe, competent route after all the disarray. The change means the premiere date has been pushed seven months to Dec 2019.

Russell Brand wants to make amends with ex-wife Katy Perry, who he dumped via text. “I’m willing and open for reconciliation, any kind. Because if we can’t overcome our relatively trivial personal disputes in this world, what hope is there for us?” How big of him.

Louis C.K.‘s new film I Love You, Daddy and I, Tonya (which reportedly features an incredible Margot Robbie performance) landed the top deals of this year’s TIFF market so far.

-Meanwhile, while promoting the film in Toronto Louis C.K. was asked by the NYT about those rumors of sexual misconduct with female comics, and he shut it down. “I’m not going to answer to that stuff, because they’re rumors…If you actually participate in a rumor, you make it bigger and you make it real.”

Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips reminiscing about all the actors they kissed on Dawson’s Creek is kind of the best.

Kristen Bell played bingo, had wheelchair races and ate dinner with thousands of nursing home residents who evacuated to her Orlando hotel during Irma.

-Good on Glamour Mag for fighting back against hateful Instagram comments about one of their employees.

-In a rare political post, Selena Gomez asked her millions of followers to defend DACA.

-Meanwhile, Elle Fanning learned the hard way what happens when Selena tags you on Instagram.

-I always have time to watch a new Radiohead video.

-The fact that Syfy added the founder of BGN to their advisory board makes me want to watch Syfy shows.

Jason Mamoa posted an Instgram video of him on a climbing wall and it’s rul nice.

-This footage of Rami Malek performing as Freddie Mercury is pretty promising.

-My friends and I are really split one The Florida Project (I loved it, they didn’t), but Drake just endorsed the film so I’m really feeling better about my opinion now…

-Here’s the first trailer for James Franco‘s The Disaster Artist. He’s getting raves for his performance.

-A new trailer has officially dropped for Alexander Payne’s Downsizing. The reviews coming out of TIFF for this one are also pretty stellar.

Anna Kendrick is getting all the magazine features this week. Her latest is in O Magazine, where she calls tickling a dating “red flag” and reveals her love of baking blogs.

-Meanwhile, here’s a new clip of Anna and Ryan Reynolds in The Voices.

-Glee’s Naya Rivera says showering every day “is such a white people thing.” Wait, what?

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny tweeting at each other continues to be my favourite thing.

Jennifer Lawrence interviewed Eddie Redmayne, and of course they talked about the Real Housewives.

Brad Pitt, Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling are teaming up to star in an adaptation of The Big Short, making your mom really happy.

-Of all the people I assumed wouldn’t ever want to get married again, Usher was at the top of my list. But he’s taking the plunge one more time.

Julianne Moore already has regrets about her Golden Globes speech. Something tells me she’ll get another shot at an acceptance speech soon.

-Entertainment Weekly’s Boyhood cover is nightmare-inducing stuff. I am not looking forward to that landing in my mailbox.

-The NYT has a good article on Better Call Saul. It’s somewhat comforting that everyone involved seems hyper-aware of the possibility it’ll mess up Breaking Bad’s legacy.

Kristen Stewart is tired of everyone thinking she doesn’t give a f*ck about anything. “I’m like, actually, no one gives a f*ck like me. No one gives more of a f*ck than me. It’s just ironic to me. I’m always like, really?”

Lena Dunham thinks “Tinder is a tool for murder.” She might not be wrong.

-This feature on the ladies from Broad City is fantastic and makes me want to catch up on the show, which returns tonight.

-Speaking of articles that made me want to watch a TV show, Elle ran an excellent profile of Jill Soloway, the creator of Transparent.

Gwyneth Paltrow showed up on Howard Stern this morning, where she talked about how smart she is and dished about her past relationships with Ben Affleck and Brad Pitt.

-The Honest Trailer for Gone Girl is pretty damn great.

-Agent Carter’s ratings slipped last night (which is not uncommon for a second episode), but a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49 on ABC? Ouch!

Russell Brand went off on Fox News’ hate-mongering and it was pretty swell.

-There’s no actual proof that Dakota Johnson and Jaime Dornan don’t like each other, but it’s true that they have zero chemistry in photos/interviews. I’m actually amazed by how bland Johnson is coming off on this press tour. What happened to the spitfire from Ben & Kate?

-Their show may be on the brink of cancellation, but there’s a silver lining for Stalker costars Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q. They’re reportedly engaged.

-I’m intrigued by Liam Neeson‘s new movie Run All Night, mostly because it stars Joel Kinnaman, who should be a bigger star than he is.
