Lucie Arnaz settles the Nicole Kidman vs. Debra Messing casting choice in Lucy/Desi biopic

Since ONTD has been wondering what on earth production was thinking with these casting choices....

Lucie Arnaz, Lucy and Desi Arnaz's daughter, addressed this topic in two posts from her official facebook page.

In this first video post back in January, Lucie addressed specifically why Nicole Kidman was chosen over Debra Messing:


Collapse )

In a Second Post in April, Lucie explains in more detail why Nicole Kidman was the agreed upon casting choice between her and director, Aaron Sorkin

TL;DR of video/2nd post for people who are not in the mental space to watch a video or want to be on FB:


  • Nicole Kidman is an award-winning actress who can do both comedy and drama & makes "box office gold"

  • Aaron Sorkin considered "acting chops and essence of the person" when it came to the casting. It's not about who can do the best "I Love Lucy" impression or who looks the most like Lucy.

  • This movie portrays Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz at a certain point in time of their marriage. This movie is NOT about impersonating "Lucy Ricardo and Ricky Ricardo"

  • This movie is NOT a remake of the "I Love Lucy" show.

  • "If one has not seen a script for a film, how can they begin to know whether an actor would be right for a part -even if they had the talent and experience to make such a decision?"   - (lol ok Lucie. we're still entitled to our clearly wrong opinion, thx.)


If you wanna read between the lines, Debra Messing's name and resume don't have the prestige that Nicole does for this kind of movie. It seems like she's just viewed as a "Lucy Ricardo" impersonator. They want this movie about Lucy/Desi's marriage to be taken seriously and Nicole Kidman has the gravitas to do that.

ONTD, who DOES have the range to play Lucille Ball? Do y'all even know what you're talking about if you haven't seen the script?


Edit 1: changed "brings big numbers to box office" to "makes box office gold" because that's closer to what was said in the source post. Lucie meant that Nicole's movies are generally successful. She wasn't specifically talking about how much money Nicole's movies make. My apolgies for the confusion.

Perez Hilton says Britney Spears Would Be Dead If She Was Not Under Conservatorship

A clip from BBC's new documentary The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship recently surfaced online.

In the clip piece of trash Perez Hilton disgustingly says that if Britney Spears was not under the conservatorship that she would be dead.

I'm not sure who thought it would be a good idea to include him in a project like this since he supports the conservatorship and would bash Britney online religiously at one of her lowest points.

Vanessa is set to play Special Agent Jane Tennant, the first female Special Agent in Charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor.

But Tennant is more than just a job and a title. She’s a mother raising her kids mostly on her own. Like any parent who loves their career and their family – she’s a master juggler – balancing the duty to both her children and her country."

Yasmine Al-Bustami is playing Lucy, is confident and and the junior member of the team. She's eager.

Jason Antoon portrays Ernie, a Cyber Intelligence Specialist, a polyglot with a keen mind for technology, history, and "all things Hawaiian". Ernie doesn't have a family on the island so he invites himself to be part of his team's families.

Netflix Drinks a 'Gunpowder Milkshake'


After competitive bidding, Netflix has acquired the US rights to Gunpowder Milkshake, the action film starring Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Angela Bassett and Michelle Yeoh and directed by Navot Papushado. The film takes place over the course of one night, and revolves around three generations of female assassins fighting to end a cycle of violence.

The film, produced by Studiocanal, will be distributed by Studiocanal and STX internationally, with a planned theatrical rollout. A sequel is already in the works, which is good news for franchise-hungry Netflix.

Glad there was competition for this, but I really hope Netflix puts it in theaters alongside the streaming release in the US!

MLB fires Roberto Alomar amid sexual misconduct allegations



- Major League Baseball placed Roberto Alomar on it's ineligible list after reviewing a sexual misconduct allegation against him. He has been fired from his consultant position and can no longer/ever again work for the league office or any team in the majors or minors.
- An external law firm presented findings of an incident that happened in 2014 to the MLB commissioner who determined a violation of league policies occurred.
- The Toronto Blue Jays who Alomar played for from 1991-1995, where he helped them win back-to-back world series, have also severed ties with him. He can no longer work for them as a consultant due to ineligibility and The Jays will be removing his name from the Level of Excellence and will be removing his retired number banner at Roger's Center where they play.
- For some reason, he is still going to be in the MLB Hall of Fame?
- Alomar released a statement saying that "with the current social climate" he understands the MLB's decision and hopes one day he can address the allegations.

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge - May



Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6.

Woman in Disaster Girl meme sells original photo as NFT for nearly $500,000




Zoë Roth was only 4 when her father took a photo of her standing in front of a controlled fire near their home in Mebane, North Carolina in 2005. The rest is history: once the photo was uploaded to the Internet in 2007, a meme was born and referred to as “Disaster Girl.”

“People who are in memes didn’t really have a choice in it. The internet is big,” Roth told The New York Times. “Whether you’re having a good experience or a bad experience, you kind of just have to make the most of it.”

Roth, now 21, and her father Dave have never made a dime off the image and its popularity. That was, until recently when she put the image up for auction as an NFT (non-fungible token) and it sold earlier this month for 180 Ether (a form of cryptocurrency), which as of today equates to about $430,000.

Who bought it? An account called @3FMusic, who remains anonymous.

[VIDEOS: What the duck is a NFT and why is it bad for the environment?]


Now that the image is minted and the token is coded, she and her father will receive 10% of the profits any time it is used.

“Being able to sell it just shows us that we do have some sort of control, some sort of agency in the whole process,” she said. “Nobody who is a meme tried to do that, it just ended up that way – Is it luck? Is it fate? I have no idea. But I will take it.”

Roth says she plans to donate most of the money to charity and pay off some student loans, while her dad said he hopes to fix the air conditioning in his Honda Civic.
