Tiffany Haddish Weighs in on Game of Thrones

-This week’s Gay of Thrones features Tiffany Haddish and remains more entertaining than the show they’re recapping.

-Meanwhile, next Star Wars movie will be from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the guys behind Game of Thrones. I can’t tell if the timing of this announcement is terrible (because of how much everyone is hating on them this week), or the best they could do (because we may all be hating on them even more after Sunday’s finale).

-It looks like Jennifer Lopez‘s daughter might follow in her mom’s footsteps. Girl’s got pipes!

George Clooney says he once advised Ben Affleck to turn down the Batman role. “I actually did talk to him about it. I said, ‘Don’t do it. ‘It was only from my experience, which is, you know…He did great, though.”

Keanu Reeves is perfect and we must protect him at all costs.

-Disney’s disturbing consolidation continues. They now have full control of Hulu after buying out Comcast’s stake.

-The glowing reviews for Fleabag’s season two (which drops on Amazon Friday) don’t do it justice. I binged the whole season in a weekend, and it’s perfection.

-Here’s the trailer for the Party of Five reboot. I have concerns.

-Meanwhile, I’m pretty sold on the new 90210 show based on the new trailer.

-The cast for Cate Blanchett‘s upcoming FX show is stacked! (As if Cate weren’t enough.)

-I’ve dropped the CW superhero shows because there’s too many better shows to watch and too little time, but I caught last night’s Arrow season finale (which was basically the series finale cause it seems like next season’s final 10 eps will be a weird crossover setup), and holy wow did it get me right in the feels. What a perfect, beautiful scene to close out the show — both in the present day and 20 years in the future. Basically, this reaction video was me.

-Someone is adapting Eleanor & Park?!? I am both extremely excited and totally terrified that they’ll screw it up. It’s being produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B, so there’s hope.

Mel Gibson’s publicist is both ballsy and delusional — which I guess is a requirement to be Mel Gibson’s publicist.

-The latest trailer for The Dead Don’t Die leans into Adam Driver‘s deadpan delivery.

Angelina Jolie is magnificent in the Maleficent: Mistress of Evil trailer.

-I love this story about a reporter asking a publicist if he could interview Ben Mendelsohn (despite him not being on the Captain Marvel press tour), and then having Mendelsohn call him to chat 10 minutes later.

-Meanwhile, Captain Marvel did even better than expected, raking in $455M US globally, including $153M in North America. Also, Brie Larson popped into a few theatres this weekend to surprise fans.

-I never thought we’d have a beef between Drake and Paul Anka, but here we are.

-In an IG post this weekend, Justin Bieber asked fans to pray for him as he revealed his recent struggles with depression.

-This entire interview with Regina King is worth a read (Support the Girls is a movie I missed last year but really want to see because I’ve only heard raves), but this bit about whether or not her pal Tiffany Haddish was telling the truth about her other pal Sanaa Lathan biting Beyonce is gold: “Let me tell you something: I could tap your leg with my foot and Tiffany would retell it as me kicking you. She’s a comedian. She can make a story, know what I mean?”

-Speaking of interviews worth your time, speaking to Vulture John Mulaney revealed he fired Louis C.K.’s former manager Dave Becky, who represents a lot of comedians, a soon as the CK article came out in the NYT, but didn’t make a statement about it. “I didn’t feel I had anything that noble to add, and issuing a simple statement of one sentence that I fired Dave seemed evasive and honestly an unhelpful use of everyone’s time and taking up oxygen.” Also, when asked about making the comedy industry safer for women, he had the perfect answer: “I have a lot of thoughts and opinions on many things. I don’t think my thoughts and opinions matter in any way compared to the women who have been directly affected by these actions. I say this not at all to be evasive, but just to not talk anymore as a male in comedy who has not had to experience this. Other people should. Women’s opinions matter, and mine does not.”
