Daniel Radcliffe was a fact checker for The New Yorker (for a day)

  • The gig was research for his Broadway play The Lifespan of a Fact where he plays a fact checker

  • Was more nervous about doing the fact-checking than he was about performing in the play

  • Radcliffe fact-checked a restaurant review for a place that serves, among other things, toasted grasshoppers

  • Among the things he had to fact-check: the accuracy of the menu mentioned, the correct spelling of the surname of the chef, and the general vibe of the restaurant

  • A few days later a fact checker called Radcliffe to verify the facts of the article that was written about Radcliffe being a fact-checker (very meta!)

Voter Registration Spikes Following Taylors Political Post + Trump Responds

Voting registrations increased a day after singer Taylor Swift posted a rare political Instagram post.

According to Vote.org, there have been 51,308 new registrations in the past 24 hours.

In the state of Tennessee, 2,811 registrations from September increased to 3,582 in October so far, and 2,144 of those were in the last 36 hours, according to the website.

While speaking to reporters on Monday and learning about Swift's opinion, President Donald Trump said Blackburn has done a "great job" and added, "Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25 percent less now."

Cameron Monaghan is also leaving Shameless

View this post on Instagram

I have been a series regular on this show for roughly ten years. I was the tender age of fifteen when we shot the pilot, and I came of age in so many ways, both legally and personally. I was very lucky to mature and grow with this show. Experiencing so many firsts, maturing as an actor, a professional, and a human. In the process gaining friends, family, and the best coworkers a very lucky actor could ask for, and for this I can be nothing but gracious. All good things come to an end. An old cliche, but one that rings true with a sincerity and clarity especially in moments like these. Everything ends. The next episode will be my last. I have known since last year, but I didn’t want to give it away too early as I wanted this season to be a surprise for the audience, allowing them to experience Ian’s unsure journey with his character. This role has been a joy to inhabit, a wild and special ride, and I’d like to thank #Shameless as well as you, the viewers, for being there with him. Goodbye, Ian Clayton Gallagher. We’ll meet again?

A post shared by Cameron Monaghan (@cameronmonaghan) on

After Emmy Rossum announced a few weeks ago that she's leaving Shameless, Cameron Monaghan has announced that he'll exit the show too.

The next episode will be my last. I have known since last year, but I didn’t want to give it away too early as I wanted this season to be a surprise for the audience, allowing them to experience Ian’s unsure journey with his character. This role has been a joy to inhabit, a wild and special ride, and I’d like to thank #Shameless as well as you, the viewers, for being there with him.

Cardi B stuns in W Magazine, talks motherhood, Offset, and the Nicki Minaj feud

Cardi B covers W Magazine's November Issue, and looks absolutely stunning in the spread.

The Bronx native, who is the first female rapper to score three #1's on Billboard's Hot 100, says she has movie offers on tap and a 2019 tour in the works, and is a contender for the next Super Bowl halftime show. “I’m the person who has to prove everyone wrong, constantly. Constantly.”

On post-pregnancy complications: “People don’t really talk about what you go through after pregnancy. Like, they don’t tell you that you get stitches down there or that your first two weeks you’re constipated. Or that you get contractions because of breastfeeding. I wasn’t expecting that. When Kulture was born, I felt like I was a kid again; everything was making me cry, and I needed a lot of love. I feel ­better now, but sometimes I just feel so vulnerable, like I’m not ready for the world yet. It’s weird.”

On Nicki Minaj: “For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me. I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going.” [Her breaking point came when she saw that Minaj had liked a tweet disparaging Cardi’s mothering skills, something Minaj has denied.] “I love my daughter. I’m a good-ass fucking mom. So for somebody that don’t have a child to like that comment? So many people want to say that party wasn’t the time or the place, but I’m not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block.”

On Offset: "Every single day there’s rumors about me and my dude. And it almost drives me crazy, because I start to believe them. I don’t have no proof. I don’t have receipts. But I just got to know my man. We practically on the phone 24 hours a day. But I cannot be feeling insecure, to a point that I would drive my dude away, because these people want that to happen."

Some press and guilds got previews of the upcoming release of 'Bohemian Rhapsody', and the praise for Rami Malek as Queen lead Freddie Mercury have been outstanding (though the movie itself is getting mixed reviews). Like, he's another one to toss into the Best Actor race for this year's award season.

ONTD Original: Creepy Characters That Won Us Over (In Film)

𝔒𝔑𝔗𝔇 𝔒𝔯𝔦𝔤𝔦𝔫𝔞𝔩
ℭ𝔯𝔢𝔢𝔭𝔶 ℭ𝔥𝔞𝔯𝔞𝔠𝔱𝔢𝔯𝔰 𝔗𝔥𝔞𝔱 𝔚𝔬𝔫 𝔘𝔰 𝔒𝔳𝔢𝔯
(ℑ𝔫 𝔉𝔦𝔩𝔪)

There are unconventional protagonists, villain's sidekicks + accessories that turned over to be on the protagonists' side, and other ambiguous characters we sort of grew fond of in film once we recognized the things they experienced and their motives to retaliate against whatever force on them was some sort of poetic justice.

Here are 7 main and minor creepy characters from both horror and family friendly films that we might not have expected to win us over.

Carrie from Carrie (1976)

If you live under the roof of a religious nut job of a mother and go to a school where the gym teachers slaps your face like nobody's business, you'd only wish to have powers like Carrie's telekinesis. And what's with the mother shaming Carrie for having a periodT?
Looking at the circumstances, was what she did all that different from when Matilda took vengeance on Ms. Trunchbull? These are the female icons of survival and anti-bullying/abuse, now who do I call for a cross over movie?

Carly Rae Jepsen is coming soon to save Pop Music

After delivering with Emotion: Side B, Carly Rae is gearing up to release a new single rumored to be titled "Party of One". The single is written by Carly, Julia Michaels & Anton and is already registered.

According to my friend with a bike, Carly was filming the music video in NYC because extras were hired for the filming.

Have you accepted Carly Rae as your pop savior?

Yes! I have great taste obviously.
Ugh her, no. She's overrated.
I bop privately and would only admit it to my closest friends.

I need some new music recommendations. What are your favorite songs of the moment?>

Riverdale Roundup: NYCC, Premiere Promo, Teen Vogue, and More

Coming to a deleted scene near you is a Choni kiss! RAS is wrapping up his ABCs of Riverdale as the show returns tomorrow. The biggest mystery will be whether this scene actually happens in the show as there is a tendency for Choni content to be cut from episodes but used to incentivize purchases for the DVD set. Or it might end up in the background/"blink and you miss it"

In other "pairings most likely to not got much spotlight" news, guess which Northsider is being cozied up to by one particular tall Southsider

James Bond Producer Shoots Down Female Bond; Says More Female Characters Should Be Created

“Bond is male. He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male. And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.”

On how women are used in the franchise as she acknowledges that the property is not feminist: “But look at the way the world has changed. And I think Bond has come through and transformed with the times. I’ve tried to do my part, and I think particularly with the Daniel [Craig] films, they’ve become much more current in terms of the way women are viewed”

Annapurna Sells Fox News & 'Hustlers' Movie, President of Film Leaves

The Fox News movie with the ironic working title Fair and Balanced was dropped by Annapurna today, days before production began. Various sources cite budgetary issues (Some say over, some say under, it looks to be around 35m$). Focus, Amblin, and Participant Media are in the mix to purchase the project.

But that's not the only thing the studio dropped today

J Lo's Hustlers, about strip club employees who turn the tables on Wall Street clients, was dropped by Annapurna and purchased by STX, which also owns Lopez's upcoming movie Second Act. Constance Wu's involvement was announced today, and is mentioned at the source.

Samira Wiley Admits One Of Her ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Costars Outed Her As Gay

Samira Wiley revealed one of her “Orange Is the New Black” cast members outed her as gay.

“First season I wasn’t out at all. Someone from my cast actually, doing an interview they were talking about out gay actors in the cast… and they mentioned my name and I saw it in print, and I cried. I cried a lot. I tried to get it taken down, I had a journey you guys. That’s something somebody took from me. Everyone’s journey is their own. You should be able to come out on your own terms.”


Riz Ahmed wants to talk about diversity versus representation

Riz Ahmed explains why he’s not a fan of the word “diversity,” preferring to go with another term.

“In terms of diversity and representation, I don’t like to talk about diversity. I feel like it sounds like an added extra. It sounds like the fries, not the burger. It sounds like something on the side, you’ve got your main thing going on, you get a sprinkle of a little bit of diversity on top of that. That’s not what it’s about for me. It’s about representation, and representation is absolutely fundamental in terms of what we expect from our culture, and from our politics. We all want to feel represented, we want to feel seen and heard and valued. I prefer to talk about representation.”

Lady Gaga pens The Guardian Op-Ed on mental health with WHO leader

Ahead of of World Mental Health Day, which takes place on October 10, Lady Gaga teamed up with the World Health Organization director-general, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesu, for an op-ed in The Guardian.

“Suicide is the most extreme and visible symptom of the larger mental health emergency we are so far failing to adequately address,” Gaga and Dr. Tedros write. “Stigma, fear and lack of understanding compound the suffering of those affected and prevent the bold action that is so desperately needed and so long overdue... The time has come for us all, collectively, to tackle the causes and symptoms of mental illness, and provide care for those who suffer from it.”

In 2015, Lady Gaga wrote an op-ed with NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, urging lawmakers to support policies to combat sexual assault at New York’s public college campuses. The “Enough is enough” legislation was passed shortly after in New York.
