Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Dodges Game of Thrones Spoilers

Nikolaj-Coster-Waldau-Game-Thrones-Mens-Health

-Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau covers the new issue of Men’s Health Magazine and I love how he handles questions about what happens to his character in the final season: don’t evade when you can just make sh*t up. “I can’t tell you anything about that. He grows out his arm. His arm grows back. Yes. It grows back, but not in the way you think. It’s a claw. It comes out as a claw. No — it’s a paw.”

Samuel L. Jackson covers the new issue of Esquire, and he talks about not caring about pissing off Trump fans by speaking out (“I know how many motherf*ckers hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ F*ck I care? If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money. I already cashed that check. F*ck you”) and why he has no plans to retire from acting (“It’s not like I’m digging a ditch. I go on set, do some shit. I go back and sit in my trailer for two hours watching TV, eat a sandwich, read. And I go back and do ten more minutes and go sit down some more. So, yeah, it’s a great job.”)

Felicity Huffman appeared in federal court in Los Angeles this afternoon, after reportedly being arrested at home yesterday for a college entrance scheme by FBI agents with their guns drawn. A judge ordered her released on $250,000 bond. Meanwhile, Lori Loughlin turned herself into the FBI in advance of a court hearing.

-Also Laughlin’s daughter posted a lot of videos that are now coming back to bite her in the ass.

-I very much enjoyed this article on Captain Marvel and the freeing power of not giving a f*ck.

-Is everyone finally starting to believe La Toya Jackson?

-Do you think Lindsay Lohan didn’t realize that Instagram was down for everybody today??

Keira Knightley can play “Despacito” — on her teeth.

Nick Jonas got Priyanka Chopra a $200,000 Mercedes. I guess having so many sponsored weddings worked out well for them.

-SNL announced its next few hosts: Sandra Oh, Kit Harrington and Emma Stone (with musical guest BTS, which will make the kids go insane).

-I’ve pretty much given up on TV these last couple of months, but the next few weeks of premieres is stacking up to be INSANE: Game of Thrones, Killing Eve, Jane the Virgin, What We Do In Shadows, Barry, Legends of Tomorrow, The Bold Type, Fleabag, Catastrophe, The Good Fight, Fosse/Verdon, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, iZombie, Good Omens. I can already hear my PVR groaning…

-One the I might skip is Netflix’s Turn Up Charlie, which Sepinwall says is less a TV show than a checklist of things Idris Elba wanted to prove he could do on camera.

-Another that sounds skippable is Arrested Development. The second half of season five drops on Netflix this weekend and the reviews are not kind.

-Meanwhile, Fosse/Verdon, starring Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams, sound like it’s unskippable.

-The Good Fight is back tomorrow night and according to reviews it’s still amazing. Too bad no one’s watching it because in the US it’s only available on CBS’ All Access app. (Though if it aired on regular CBS, it probably wouldn’t have lasted this long). I like the idea this writer suggests: CBS air it on sister network Showtime, much like BBC did with AMC once it realized what it had on its hands with Killing Eve.

-Ever trailer I see of Long Shot starring Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron, I get more intrigued. Here’s the red band version.

-Speaking of Seth Rogen, he produced Good Boys starring Jacob Tremblay as a filthy-mouthed sixth grader.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Are Engaged

Orlando Bloom proposed to Katy Perry on Valentine’s Day, which is a very Orlando Bloom-y thing to do.

-This is a really good interview with Meg Ryan, in which she talks about burning out and the pressures of being America’s sweetheart. I love her metaphor for fame: “Ever get in a car — maybe it’s a superexpensive car — and the inside’s lovely, you can’t complain about it, but you can’t hear anything outside, because there’s so much metal? There’s so much between you and everything else. You’re at a disadvantage as a young, famous person because you don’t know who’s telling you the truth.”

-There was a very, very disturbing tweet from a Chicago news reporter last night that suggested Jussie Smollett may have staged his racist attack because he was worried he was be written out Empire. Fox Entertainment immediately denied that possibility and stood by the actor, and Empire producer Danny Strong tweeted that there was “0% truth he was being written off,” and police say there is no evidence that it was staged. Meanwhile, two suspects have been arrested.

-Whenever I see video from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s house, I get so confused. How is she calling this their living room? Where is their furniture? It’s just a big, cavernous white space. Do they have a whole wing that they devote just to IG videos?

Terry Crews talked about what it’s like to be the leading male voice in the #MeToo movement: “It feels scary, there’s no other way to really describe. I’ve had a lot of men who are very, very angry. They’re angry at me because I’ve changed the narrative. The only way I can describe it is that there’s a movie that everybody’s playing in their head and the movie doesn’t end up the way they want it.”

-I’m in love with every single thing we’re hearing about Amazon’s Good Omens series, which will premiere on May 31.

-Showtime’s new comedy series Desus & Mero is getting crazy buzz that’s to glowing early reviews, a stellar writing team, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as their first guest.

-Here’s the first trailer for Killing Eve season 2, which seems to pick up exactly where we left off.

-After heavy-hitting celebs like Brad Pitt, Alfonso Cuaron and George Clooney blasted the Oscars for planning to hand out Best Editing and Best Cinematography during commercial breaks, the Academy is now saying we all misunderstood. Uh huh.

-This photo that JJ Abrams tweeted out to celebrate the last day of shooting on Star Wars Episode IX is all kinds of perfect.

-Finding out that Tom Cruise’s character is Collateral was named Vincent Collateral has greatly enriched my life.

-R. Kelly might soon be indicted in Illinois, based on a new 45-min video that allegedly shows the singer sexually assaulting an underage girl.

-I’ve always wanted good things for Mandy Moore, but now I really, really want them following that New York Time’s article on Ryan Adams.

-Hurrah! Jared Leto‘s Joker spinoff has reportedly been shelved.

Mark Ruffalo still gives good Twitter.

-Sending out good vibes to Justin Bieber, who is reportedly seeking professional help for depression.

-Early tracking for Captain Marvel place it at a $100M opening and I want it to crush that!

-I wasn’t going to watch Netflix’s Umbrella Academy but this dance scene clip might have just changed my mind.

-It’s not surprising that Netflix has ordered a sequel to The Kissing Booth, but can they make the next one less problematic?

-Apple is set to show the first clips of their originals shows at an event in March — and hopefully announce where/how we can watch them.

Nicholas Hoult plays a hot young J.R.R. Tolkien in the first Tolkien trailer.

-In the trailer for Long Shot, Charlize Theron plays a presidential candidate and Seth Rogen plays the schlubby journalist who catches her eye, and damned if I’m not totally charmed by this whole thing!

The Rock Drops Best Blind Item Ever

The Rock Instagram blind item

-The Rock posted a blind item on Instagram that  put everyone on the internet in instant detective mode last night. The majority of people immediately assumed he was talking about his new costar Scott Eastwood, but I’m not so sure. His opening comment about how “no other franchise gets my blood boiling more than this one” makes me think it’s one of his longtime costars. Plus he uses “candy ass,” his signature phrase which Eastwood also referenced in his douchey Esquire interview. Also, The Rock has tweeted nice things about him in the past. ONTD’s sleuthers have narrowed it down to Vin (noooo!!!) or Tyrese (more likely).

-Here’s more about Seth Rogen‘s comments on Katherine Heigl. He’s waiting for a personal apology?! Look, it was not her smartest career move but the movie had already come out and if you look at what she actually said about Knocked Up… she’s not wrong. I liked that movie but damn if the women weren’t all depicted as shrews. And her comment wasn’t directed at him, so for him to still be butthurt about it stumps me. Also, The Rock is being celebrated for his post and that movie that hasn’t even been released yet. (And he *should* be celebrated for it! His post was awesome!) But the difference between how actresses and actors are allowed to be critical is glaring.

Lady Gaga and Ray Liotta‘s reps have denied they’re a new item and I’ve never wanted to believe a publicist more.

Tom Hiddleston is now on Instagram but weirdly, there’s no overly staged romantic photos yet. He’s doing it wrong!

-TIFF’s announcements continue to impress. Brie Larson, a Kaiju-fied Anne Hathaway and the Blair Witch Project are all coming to Midnight Madness.

Julianne Moore is starring in a new TV series with Robert De Niro that’s being developed by David O. Russell and I already want to enclose her in protective bubble wrap.

Taran Killam has been let go on SNL and this interview about it is kind of heartbreaking.

-This is amazing: thanks to Mo Ryan‘s piece in Variety last year about the lack of diversity on TV, FX’s John Landgraf took his network from 12% women and people of color directors in 2015 to 51% in 2016.

-It might turn out to be terrible, but this Prison Break revival clip has me all tingly.

-Speaking of dubious revivals, a year ago this tweet from David Duchovny to Gillian Anderson would have made me squeal. Now? Not so much.

-We are officially on Bon Iver album watch. Don’t do me like Frank Ocean, Bon!

-There was an N’SYNC reunion at J.C.’s 40th(!) birthday party. We’re old, y’all.

-The first trailer for Marvel’s next Netflix show Luke Cage shows his one weak spot. (Sadly, it’s not me.)
