Misha Collins deplores slavery, jokes about it anyway

Earlier today, Misha Collins tweeted this


He then deleted it, but as anyone with a single social media account will remind you, the internet never forgets. People rightfully criticized the tweet, wondering how someone who advocates for human trafficking victims could make such an insensitive joke. Instead of acknowledging that his joke was probably in poor taste, Collins seemed shocked that people would find something wrong with what he said.

George Miller "I can't help but be a feminist"



"I've gone from being very male dominant to being surrounded by magnificent women. I can't help but be a feminist," says George Miller.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Miller talks about the important impact women had behind the scenes. His wife, Margaret Sizel edited the film. He invited feminist activist Eve Ensler to visit the set and hold workshops for the actresses (and even some of the crew) to give perspective on violence against women in war zones. He also talks about how the movie was delayed being made for 15 years (whether it was issues with the studio, Mel Gibson's personal issues in the early 2000s, and rainfall in Australia that delayed filming for 18 months).

If anything, the delays in filmmaking allowed for more time to polish the script and aesthetic concepts for the films.

In another interview with NPR, Melissa Jaffer (elderly actress who plays one of the badass lady warriors) talks about how she did her own stuntwork, and how rare it is to be offered a role like this. Says Melissa, "The roles that one is offered at this age, quite frankly, you're either in a nursing home, you're in a hospital bed dying, you're suffering from dementia, or in fact, in two cases, I was offered two characters who'd actually died and come back to life," she says. "So when this role came along, I thought well, I won't get another chance like this before I die, and that's why I took it. It was absolutely wonderful. Wonderful role."

I have this, you know, I have my own fantasies about that. But I haven’t heard anything to suggest that he will be coming back. Unless they build a robot version of him, or he has an evil twin or something.”

Earlier, director Matthew Vaughn did mentioned, 'If people buy tickets in America, I’ve got a feeling we’ll figure out a way for having Colin back'.

Empire's Co Creator Lee Daniels hates White People writing for Black People




“I don’t know what gives me more pleasure: watching my story unfold or going in and watching a room full of black people talking for me and writing words for black people,” Daniels said. “I hate white people writing for black people; it’s so offensive. So we go out and look specifically for African-American voices. Yes, it’s all about reverse racism!”

Daniels then questioned the other panel members about whether they had black writers on their staffs, and the majority of them said no. If you take Daniels’ comments at face value, however, you’ll miss the sarcasm and nuance, especially since there are white writers writing for Empire, and Empire’s co-creator, Danny Strong, and showrunner, Illene Chaiken, are both white.

But to Daniels’ point, if a show is going to be about the black experience, of course there should be black writers. Think of how many shows you’ve watched where you could clearly tell there weren’t any black writers in the room. It doesn’t take much to realize, after hearing dialogue and storylines, that some of the most popular black shows from back in the day didn’t have one black writer sitting there to veto some of the craziness that was allowed to go on the air.

Empire is far from perfect and should be only taken for its entertainment value, but Daniels recognizes that Hollywood has a diversity problem and isn’t afraid to speak about it.

Supergirl trailer looks exactly like SNL Black Widow parody



Ohh how we laughed when SNL made a spoof Black Widow movie trailer that was filled with cliche "women" things. We said if Marvel would make one that's probably what they'd do, little did we know DC and CBS had beat them to it with Supergirl starring Melissa Benoist best known as the most yawn worthy person ever on Glee(she does look ok in this admittedly). If we didnt know better we'd think SNL was actually spoofing Supergirl.

Similiarities:
-Both work at some fashion magazine type place with a Devil Wears Prada type of boss
-Awkward/adorkable romantic interactions
-Everything changes when both characters are watching a news report of some crisis happening which involved someone they cared about.

All i've read about the other DC superhero shows is that they are awesome, i can't vouch for this because i don't watch any. However a lot of people who watch them have pointed out that off course the first female super hero on TV (Does Agent Carter count) looks like a parody made by SNL.

In an effort to level out the playing field (I guess), when he discovers that his grade-school crush (Sarah, played by Erin Darke) is married to a banker (Ted, played by Michael Zegen), he does his best to wage war on their marriage. Annapurna Sriram plays Reshma, a doctor - her storyline is captured in the photos (not spoiling it for others if they don't want to see them).

Priyanka Chopra did Quantico to break Indian stereotypes in American media

Bollywood A-lister Priyanka Chopra is the lead in ABC's new fall thriller, Quantico. Thanks to a development deal arranged by Keli Lee (who did similar deals for actresses such as Sofia Vergara and Kerry Washington), PC is making the leap to the US, where she hopes she will be able to break Indian stereotypes in American media and help with the issues of diversity and representation, which she is passionate about.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Here are some excerpts from an interview with DNA India:

What is your biggest fear playing the lead on Quantico?

It’s very scary, because I don’t know if the world is ready for an Indian protagonist. When I did NFL, and ‘In My City’ was picked for NFL, it was the opening song after Faith Hill. Several racist comments came my way, that I am an Arab terrorist on social media and the NFL network, they had people writing to them. Because I was brown, they figured I’m Arab, and people were like ‘How can you have her headlining an American event? Why is she in an all-American sport?’ So, I don’t know how people will react especially since I’m playing an American from India! But it’s a great part and a great show, it could be really cool.

Ellen DeGeneres Wife Portia de Rossi to Split after Anna Kendrick Visit?



A source close to Ellen & Portia talked to In touch Weekly recently and revealed that there is trouble in paradise yet again. It's been said that Ellen's public blowouts with Portia are now frequent and most are convinced that Portia will soon be demanding a divorce. Here are the highlights:

  • The first time Ellen looked happy in a while was when she was talking about Katy Perry's boobs with Anna Kendrick

  • It was recently reported that their marriage was on the upswing after working out details of a prenuptial agreement, but it's not true.

  • The couple are now scarring their friends with their emotional outbursts.

  • According to the source, things got ugly when Portia decided to treat Ellen's staff like human beings rather than indentured servants.

  • "Ellen and Portia's marriage still has many cracks. Ellen's team comes to do her hair and Portia asked them if they wanted water. Ellen ripped into her, screaming, 'Don't offer them water! We already offered!' ... Everyone was in shock."

  • Ellen has been micromanaging Portia for years and Portia's friends don't understand why they put up with it.

  • "Their relationship is so unhealthy."

Demi Lovato swapped spit with her dog in New York City this week

Earlier this week, Demi Lovato was spotted in New York City enjoying a romantic lunch date with her dog. Things got extremely hot and heavy fast, as Demi picked her dog up and gave it a big wet smooch right on its mouth! Her boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama didn't seem to mind, as he was on his phone during the impromptu make-out session. After making out with her dog, Demi proceeded to finish her lunch. The taste of the dog's mouth apparently adds an extra flavor to meals.

The Good Wife Faked Alicia and Kalinda's Reunion

Image and video hosting by TinyPic



Apparently body doubles and camera tricks were used to make the scene seem authentic.

CBS has not yet commented on it.

As most of us Good Wife fans are aware, Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi have a (rumored) history of off-the-set animosity for reasons not yet understood. It is speculated that Julianna has disliked Archie ever since Archie won her Emmy the first season before Julianna (who has actually won twice). There are no real receipts as to why their cold war has occurred and lasted for the past several seasons and neither of the actresses or any of the other Good Wife cast has made any specific comments about this (even though interviews with some of the cast an the creators seem to touch on the subject in a vague manner fueling this rumor).

In the fist couple seasons their friendship was one of the better female friendships on television. Fans had noticed that for the past several seasons Alicia and Kalinda have not had a scene together for a while (even though the storyline where Kalinda slept with Alicia's husband seemed as this was storyline dictated which some fans still insist on). When the Kings announced that Kalinda and Alicia would reunite in the finale many fans were happy but when the scene aired many people noticed it did not seem like a genuine reunion and that there were noticeable edits that made it appear the actresses did not appear on screen together.

Michael Johnston to Play Gay Love Interest In Teen Wolf Season 5


“When I see relationships on Teen Wolf, they’re all treated the same,” says Johnston, 19. “They don’t make a big deal over a gay relationship in the show — it’s just like any other relationship, which is really close to what life is like.”

Johnston’s mysterious character will be introduced alongside an unspecified new supernatural threat to the show’s main characters, and he’ll cross paths with Mason, a cheeky gay human played by Khylin Rhambo. “There’s some hope that we’ll start out as friends, but maybe more will happen,” teases Johnston.

Grimm Finale Recap & Dicussion



Me during that final scene
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

[Spoiler (click to open)]I am legit really really surprised they actually killed Juliette off. As much as I (and everyone else on here) really hated the character it seemed like because of the actors off screen relationship and Juliette being such main character that they would cop out and try to redeem her. LBR though there is no way to do that and not make this show more of a mess than it can be especially after last week's ep. So I guess rejoice haters (and some of you Adalind/Nick shippers).

The King is so much of a flop though. I assume this means we're done with the royals which I'm happy about because there was so much potential to that story in S2 that they totally botched and made the show campy when it should've been creepy.

I wonder if they will SOARAS Diana and make her evil and next years big bad.

-Carol Danvers was Ms Marvel on-and-off from 1967 to 2012, when she finally went by Captain.
-Monica's origin never tied into the original Marvel Captain Marvel unlike Carol.
-Article writer is pro-Carol and therefore wrong.
