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.)

Leslie Jones Is Going to the Olympics!

Leslie Jones‘ Olympics commentary on social media was so good this weekend, she just got invited to cover Rio for NBC. And she’s doing it! This is what happens when you don’t let the haters scare you off Twitter for good.

-Also, she has the cutest fan ever.

-Oh, FFS. Now Kim Kardashian is jumping on the “I’m not a feminist” train, saying she’s “not a ‘free the nipple’-type girl.” A) Feminist or not, she still benefits from feminism, and B) would someone please buy Hollywood a dictionary that’s been published post-1967?!

Lindsay Lohan and fiancé Egor Tarabasov got into a nasty-looking fight on a public beach, so of course there’s photos. After they surfaced, she spoke out, saying “No woman can be hit and stay with that person if that person isn’t prepared to say sorry.” (I would have ended that sentence before the word ‘if’, but at least she seems to have left him.)

-Between the movie poster Robert Downey Jr. posted on his Facebook page and Supergirl’s “new” poster, it was a bad weekend for stars/official outlets sharing things that ended up being fan art.

New Girl and Brooklyn 99 are getting in on the crossover madness this fall. I stopped watching both of those shows ages ago, but good on them.

Mariah Carey really is going to guest-star on Empire, apparently. She’s not playing herself though, which seems like a miss.

-Suicide Squad may have opened big this weekend, but it’s not necessarily a total success yet. After pulling in an impressive $65.1M on Friday, it dropped a massive 41% day-over-day. (A 30% drop is considered bad, so this is really not good.) We’ll see.

-CBS’s six new shows feature six white dudes as leads. I mean, do we expect anything more of them at this point, though?

Lea Michele just Snapchatted her lip waxing. Civilization is doomed.

John Oliver‘s segment last night on the decline of print news was pretty much a regurgitation of the conversation my friends and I have been having since I was a young ‘un in journalism school. Much wittier, though. (“Digital First sounds like a high school euphemism for seductively sucking on a finger.”)

Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg will throw weekly joint dinner parties on a new VH1 series, which already sounds like my new favourite TV show.

-I’m probably really late to the party, but I just discovered the My Dad Wrote a Porno podcast and Oh. My. God. If you have any interest in listening to a British guy and his two hyper-articulate friends break down his father’s terrible, terrible attempt at erotica, I highly recommend it. It makes me cry-laugh on the subway.

Seth Rogen competed against Jimmy Fallon in Lip Sync Battle, and his “Hotline Bling” dance moves were pretty great. (Also, Rogen looks great!)

-Meanwhile, Rogen says he’s no longer mad at Katherine Heigl. That makes one of us!

-A new Moana trailer dropped during the Olympics coverage this weekend.

Taylor Swift Takes Us Behind The Scenes of Bad Blood

taylor-swift-squad

-It’s great that Taylor Swift keeps unloading all these “Bad Blood” bts goodies (maybe to make up for the fact that it’s her worst single in years?), but can we quit it with all the “squad” talk?

-The fact that the host of The Bachelor just spilled this much hate over UnREAL makes me heart the show even more. What a baby.

-TIFF just announced its first wave of movies. There’s some really good gets here (The Martian, Family Fang, Freeheld, Trumbo), but I’m surprised Angelina Jolie’s By the Sea didn’t make the first round. Also, the world premiere status struggle remains real.

-The TCA tour started today so expect a wave of TV news this week. First up was Netflix’s presentation. They said they hope to release a new Marvel series every six months, which would theoretically put the Jessica Jones premiere around October.

-Also, today’s Netflix presentation cemented their rep as a major player on the TV landscape. They went from having one original program in 2011 to 36 this year. That’s *insane* growth.

-Also from Netflix: they claim the Olsen twins are “teetering” towards the Full House reboot. God, why??

-Wait, so Jesse Eisenberg is basically recycling his Social Network character to play Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman?

-Even the hardest hater has to admit that Tom Cruise killed it during this lip sync battle with Jimmy Fallon.

-This isn’t really Mickey Rourke, right? RIGHT???!

Ellie Kemper adorably remembers having Jon Hamm as her high school drama teacher: “he was not ugly.”

Rachel McAdams just confirmed that she’s in talks to star in Doctor Strange. Get it, gurl.

Tove Lo‘s “Habits” is one of those songs I listened to on repeat for a month, which I’m now going to do with Kelly Clarkson’s cover of it.

Macklemore (remember him?) opened up about a recent drug relapse.

-Now that Jon Stewart is on his way out, all the scoop is floating to the surface. The latest (and weirdest)? President Obama held secret meetings with him at the White House.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen have a wild Christmas Eve in The Night Before‘s hilarious red band trailer.  Damn, that is some spot on Wrecking Ball analysis by Mindy Kaling and Lizzy Caplan.
