Disney Junior rebooting The Muppet Babies

The reboot is set to premiere on Disney Junior in 2018 and there'll be two eleven minute segments.


Jeffrey Dean Morgan interview for 'The Walking Dead'

On getting the role of Negan: "I think it was in San Diego, when somebody came up to me and said, "Have you seen Kirkman's new book?" I said, "No," and they said, "There's this character Negan. You should be Negan." Probably three or four months later, I actually did pick up a copy of The Walking Dead comic book, which at that point I hadn't read; I had only followed the show. I picked up the introduction of Negan and thought, "Oh yeah, that would be fun to play." Cut to five years later, I was doing The Good Wife and got a call one night from my agent who said, "The Walking Dead is offering you the role of a villain." I said, "Well, what's his name?" And they were like, "You know, they won't tell us, it's a secret." And I knew immediately—I knew because I watched the show and knew where we were—and I'm like, "It's fucking Negan! And I'm going to fucking do it."

On playing the 'villain': "I don't ever look at these guys as villains per se; I always try to figure out, I wouldn't say the justification of them, but look for the reasons that Negan is Negan. I have to understand that, otherwise I don't think it works if I just play him as a bad guy—I think that's pretty one note and it would be boring for you as a viewer, and it wouldn't be that fun for me to play. So I just try to get into that character's skin as much as I can, and understand why he is who he is. Negan is a trip though, man. He's a brutal son of a bitch, but there are also parts about him that I find kind of endearing. We'll see if the audience responds to it. I think that the first episode is going to be rough, and people aren't going to be real fond of me or Negan, and I think as time wears on and you get to know him a little bit more and understand his way of thinking, there could be a shift in that. Maybe they'll love to hate him as opposed to just hating him."

On Negan's personality: "I think that as we get to know him and see him in quieter moments, you'll see his charisma and his humor in a way that will be different than Lucille crashing into somebody's face, which I think will help. It's hard for me to go, "Look, he's very charismatic and he's got this incredible wit to him," when I'm killing people. I don't know if anyone's ever going to truly look at Negan and go, "Oh, yeah, I get it! There's a guy in there that's awesome." That's the nature of the beast. Not that I'm going to make excuses for Negan, but we seem to forget as an audience, and as fans of the show, that Rick and Daryl and the rest of them killed probably 30, 40 of my men, and so far I've only killed two of them. Negan just did it with some panache."

The end of an era :(((((

Leslie Jones posts some stuff on Twitter

Leslie Jones does not appear to be having a very good night. She posted the following tweet shortly before midnight on Tuesday regarding men with whom she had had a meeting, in which she equated real men to men without uteruses:

[Tweet: Yo I'm gonna say this nice as I can! Tired of man bitches! Please dispose of your uterus!! We are in need of real men! I want a caveman! Lol]

After some people pointed out the transphobia in the above tweet, Leslie chose to offer the following dismissive reply:

[Tweet: To all trans men I'm not talking to you! Does everything have to go that direction. Talking to the men that act like bitches!! Good Grief!!]

Apparently Leslie doesn't know when to stop talking, as she has since followed up with the following:
more tweets/retweets under the cut!Collapse )

Do you like to excuse transphobia by calling it comedy, ONTD? Happy Wednesday. Tweets have been typed out for accessibility reasons and also to accomodate those of you whose browsers don't always show images.

Mods--since Leslie took down the tweets, screenshots have been included. The sources are for the original tweets, which have since vanished into the abyss. I have included screenshots of the replies and retweets in case they are similarly deleted. Shout out to kimsungkyu for the screenshots of the original tweets.

EDIT: Yes, the above tweets are sexist and misogynist. However, the contents of the post focus on transphobia because that is the basis upon which people on twitter were calling her out (at the time of posting). Please do not view my omitting a discussion of sexism and misogyny as a dismissal of these concerns; she fucked up in that regard as well.

Taylor Swift Wants To Date Drake

-As you all know, Taylor Swift attended Drake's 30th birthday party over the weekend.
-Sources say the two were very "flirty" with one another.
-Drake joined Taylor "in her booth after dinner" and then they "were intimately flirting, talking closely, and laughing."
-Another source said that Drake spent more time with Taylor than with his own mom.
-Taylor didn't speak to John Mayer or Katy Perry, who were also at the party.

Plus, other reports and piggish sources (you can figure it out) have claimed that Taylor is currently seeing someone on the down low.

ONTD, do you want Taylor Swift and Drake to date as well?
