Joe Rogan is one of the biggest platforms for misinfo and extremism in the world and he somehow always gets a pass. "Modern medicine" is insanely misleading here, he's thanking ivermectin. This is a huge victory for the far-right grifters who push this stuff. pic.twitter.com/fS3e7xKhqK

–Joe Rogan says he’s tested positive for covid and he’s treating himself with horse dewormer. Makes sense cause he acts like an animal. (No really though, don’t do this.) If he comes out and says this cured him — it won’t — we’re in trouble.
-This is a great profile of Tony Leung in GQ. He speaks about his coming villain period, and checking into hotels with just a book.
-There’s talk that Leung is SO good in Shang Chi, it’s almost cruel to put Simu Liu up against him.
-Following his latest custody case loss, Brad Pitt has petitioned the court for a review.
-Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Gregg Leakes, husband to NeNe, has passed away at 66 after a battle with cancer.
-Another day, another report that Kanye West is hoping to rekindle his romance with Kim Kardashian. She wouldn’t want that though, right? RIGHT?!
–Archie Panjabi is finally starting to open up about that green-screened bar scene with Julianna Margulies on The Good Wife. She doesn’t say much (“I know we had drinks at the bar…The fact that you have people interested in the show and those characters, and they’re so invested in it, you know, it’s just a testament to how great that show was”) but the fact that she’s talking about it at all is a good sign. Has an NDA expired or something? Give us the tell-all!
–Tom Holland wished Zendaya a happy birthday on Insta with this sweet photo of them.
-I have seen so many tweets this week about James Marsden deserving James Corden‘s movie musical career, and yes! (I also find it weird that after so many rumours about him, the thing that made people really seem to turn against Corden was the traffic flash mob for Cinderella.)
-Impeachment: American Crime Story is getting very mixed reviews, though everyone seems to love Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky.
-Rough day for Tom Cruise. Both Top Gun: Maverick and Mission Impossible 7 are being delayed again.
–Paul Schrader says he was kicked out of Paul Dano’s Zoom poker club: “I got thrown out. I joined another and got thrown out of it too. It all has to do with political correctness. I never met these people, they’re images on screen. I said something that someone took offence to.”
-From Lainey’s site: “What’s interesting about Stephen [Amell] is I live in Vancouver and know a few people that worked on Arrow. I was not surprised by the airplane story.” Yup.
-CBS is overhauling the cast and premise of B Positive ahead of season 2. It’s not the first time Chuck Lorre has had to do this.
–Freida Pinto is rattled by a home invasion in the Intrusion trailer.
