‘Powerpuff Girls’ CW Pilot Star Chloe Bennet Exits Project

According to Variety, Chloe Bennet has stepped down as one of the three leads in the live-action CW pilot based on “The Powerpuff Girls.” Bennet was set to star as Blossom.

The CW made the decision to redevelop and reshoot the pilot earlier this year, with CW chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz calling the first pilot “a miss.”

Warner Bros. Television wanted to extend Bennet’s option as they reworked the pilot, but due to scheduling conflicts she was unable to remain on the show.

Everyone else remains attached to the project, for now.

Casting for a new third Powerpuff Girl will begin in the Fall.


Cooking influencer proposes the cancellation of “curry”

Chaheti Bansal, with over 200,000 followers on Instagram, sparked a debate over the word curry as a descriptor of dishes from regions of South Asia and beyond.

“I’m not even gonna bother with the recipe cause I have more important things to discuss like canceling the word ‘curry,’ ” she says. “We’re still using this umbrella term popularized by white people who couldn’t be bothered to learn the actual names of our specific dishes... Curry shouldn’t be all that you think about when you think about South Asian food”.

The word “curry” likely originated from British colonists mispronouncing something else, although it’s not clear what exactly they were mispronouncing. “The word curry does not exist in any South Asian language to my knowledge,” University of Vermont Professor Ilyse Morgenstein Fuerst says.

But some people push back on the movement. “I lost the will to live as soon as we started talking about it,” British TV host and news anchor Simon McCoy said when covering the controversy.

There are many dishes called "curries", but the precise selection of spices for each dish is a matter of national or regional cultural tradition, religious practice, and preference, being called by their specific names instead of the general term of curry. Outside of the Indian subcontinent, "curry" expanded and describes various dishes of Island Southeast Asia, Mainland Southeast Asia, east Asia, United Kingdom and Oceania.

Here's Your New Hollywood A-List

Agents, managers and studio executives say it has become harder and harder for actors to take hold of the cultural zeitgeist the way a Leonardo DiCaprio or Jennifer Lawrence once did due to social media and streaming. “The idea of the movie star has died,” says one top agency talent rep, “and everyone is now trying to reinvent what movie stardom looks like.”

The Hollywood Reporter ranked the top five actors who are at the top of every casting director’s wish list and the future of the Hollywood A-list.

Beanie Feldstein lands the lead in 'Funny Girl' revival

• News broke earlier today that actress Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart, Impeachment: American Crime Story) will play Fanny Brice in the upcoming revival of Funny Girl

• The show will be returning to Broadway for the first time in 58 years and will be directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening)

• In a statement provided at the source Feldstein says: "The first time I played Fanny Brice was at my third birthday party, in a head-to-toe leopard print outfit my mom made for me. So, it's safe to say that stepping into this iconic role, on Broadway and not in my family's backyard, is truly my lifelong dream come true. I am immensely grateful to be able to do so alongside such a remarkable creative team, and cannot wait for audiences to get back in theaters again!"

• Rumors of a revival had persisted for years, most recently back in 2014 when Lea Michele said that she and Glee producer Ryan Murphy had bought the rights to the musical and was planning on staging a revival. Murphy would go on to shoot those rumors down a year later.

Sean Penn calls for mandatory vaccinations, compares to requiring a driver's license

"My deep belief personally, is that these [vaccines are] no different than having everybody being able to drive 100 miles an hour in a car,” he said. “This is one of those things that should be mandatory. That we all get with the exception — the very few exceptions — for those people who, for whatever medical condition, might offset it.

Also calls out the movie industry:

I do think that vaccines need to be mandatory and I do think that business — all businesses, the movie business, all businesses — need to take the lead and to be not so timid in dealing with their collective bargaining agreement partners."

Nick Cannon Says Only R. Kelly Could Do Verzuz Against Mariah Carey

Cannon was asked if there was anyone who could go up against Mariah Carey in a Verzuz battle.
He says R. Kelly is the only person that could’ve gone against Mariah Carey.
He also floated the idea of a Verzuz between Mariah and Janet Jackson.
But he still thinks that R. Kelly is the only worthy competitor.
Despite the sexual abuse allegations against R. Kelly, Cannon says that it doesn’t diminish his talent.

“The only person in this day and age that could’ve gone against Mariah Carey—because she writes of all her songs, she actually produces all of her songs, she puts the songs together and performs them at a high level—[is] R. Kelly. Mariah is a musician. I’m not impressed by people who can perform songs that it took 30 people to make with you. The greatest are the ones you can put somebody in a room by their damn self and they come back with a hit. On that level of diva, I would love to see, Mariah and Janet would be fire. But If we talking about matching talents—because Mariah is a writer and has written more hits than anybody—the only other person I can think of that has that ability was R. Kelly,”

Future Accused by Brittni Mealy of Texting Son ‘Your Mother Is a Hoe’

Brittni Mealy has publicly called out Future, with whom she co-parents their son Prince.
She shared screenshots to Instagram that are alleged to show Future texting their son “Your mother is a hoe” and informing him that she needs to buy him new clothes for school.

Future responded on Twitter, telling his followers to “pray for her.”
Future's mother, Stephanie Jester, appeared to chime in by also calling for prayer.

Olivia Rodrigo's Clash Interview

Clash Magazine releases the interview they had with Olivia Rodrigo. Not to be confused with this post, when Clash just teased the magazine cover.

Interview Cliff Notes

- About her angsty music: “I'm never the type of person who's like, ‘Oh, it's the girl's fault that this guy did something wrong to me,’” she says. “It's never made sense logically in my head, and I don't subscribe to that mindset.”

- ‘Sour’ allowed her to make space for her lived experience as a biracial, Filipina woman. “I'm very proud of who I am and where I came from now,” she pauses. “But growing up, me and my other more ethnic friends grew up in this world where we thought that being a white girl would be better, and you'd be happier, and people would like you more.” Rodrigo no longer subscribes to that mentality, but she has subtly injected “the insecurity that goes along with growing up in the world and figuring out your placement in society” into her songwriting. “I think race and ethnicity plays a very big role in that, even if it's not super obvious that it does,” she says. “Hopefully young girls who felt the way that I did growing up can relate or find confidence and solace in the music that I write. That would be the coolest thing.”

- Shuts down fan theories that she has a second album coming out called Sweet

- Wants to collab with St. Vincent and Jack White

Russell T. Davies (Queer as Folk, It's a Sin, Years&Years) slams LOKI's 'pathetic' queer portrayal.

- Russell T. Davies, creator of many great queer shows: Queer as Folk, It's a Sin, Years and Years, Cucumber, Banana and Doctor Who, etc, had some strong words for LOKI's shitty bisexual portrayal.
- Among the things RTD said, stands out: “Pathetic, it’s a ridiculous feeble gesture towards the vital politics of the stories that should be told…I think huge, cleaning warning bells are ringing as the giants rise up with Netflix and Disney+ especially. I think that’s a very great worry. Loki makes one reference to being bisexual once, and everyone’s like, ‘Oh my god, it’s like a pansexual show.’ It’s like one word. He said the word ‘prince’, and we’re meant to go, ‘Thank you, Disney! Aren’t you marvelous?’ It’s a ridiculous, craven, feeble gesture towards the vital politics and the stories that should be told. So they will damn us with their condescension in the end. So that’s my worry now.”

- You can read more of what he says at the source

While i agree, RTD is not the person to talk about this. Sure, he has great queer character but he LOVES to use the bury your gays trope. He kills gays every chance he can. #RIPIanto

Instagram apologizes for censoring nipple on Penelope Cruz film poster

The poster shows a lactating nipple, and was removed “for breaking our rules against nudity” 

“We do, however, make exceptions to allow nudity in certain circumstances, which includes when there’s clear artistic context. We’ve therefore restored posts sharing the Almodóvar movie poster to Instagram, and we’re really sorry for any confusion caused,” 

The poster’s Spanish designer had questioned whether the poster would have trouble on social networks but stayed true to his vision after receiving the personal backing of Almodóvar.

“This is probably the first image I saw when I was born. A company like Instagram tells me my work is dangerous, that people shouldn’t see it, that it’s pornographic. How many people are they telling that their body is bad, that their body is dangerous? They say their technology can’t differentiate the context. I don’t care. Change your technology then,” 


LiveJournal stars in new YA novel as girl creeps her dad's journal to learn more about her mom

Author Emma Lord has written a young adult novel called "When You Get the Chance," starring everyone's favourite social media platform, LiveJournal.

Nothing will get in the way of Millie Price’s dream of becoming a Broadway star. Not her lovable but super introverted dad, who raised Millie alone since she was a baby. Not her drama club rival, Oliver, who is the very definition of Simmering Romantic Tension. And not her “Millie Moods,” the feelings of intense emotion that threaten to overwhelm. Millie needs an ally. And when an accidentally left-open browser brings Millie to her dad’s embarrassingly moody LiveJournal from 2003, Millie knows just what to do―find her mom.

It is a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick and is recommended for ages 12-18, but we all know who's actually going to end up reading it.

Mike Richards Confirmed as ‘Jeopardy!’ Host, Mayim Bialik to Front Primetime Specials

Mike Richards has been confirmed as the permanent host of “Jeopardy!,” taking the reins after producer Sony Pictures Television held a months-long process of on-air auditions to replace the legendary Alex Trebek.

Mayim Bialik, former star of “The Big Bang Theory,” has also been tapped to host a series of ABC primetime specials and a potential spinoff series for the syndicated quiz show.

“We are thrilled to begin the next chapter of America’s favorite quiz show with Mike hosting our daily show and Mayim hosting new versions of ‘Jeopardy!,’ ” said Ravi Ahuja, chairman of global television studios and corporate development for Sony Pictures. “We took this decision incredibly seriously. A tremendous amount of work and deliberation has gone into it, perhaps more than has ever gone into the selection of hosts for a show – deservedly so because it’s ‘Jeopardy!’ and we are following the incomparable Alex Trebek. A senior group of Sony Pictures Television executives pored over footage from every episode, reviewed research from multiple panels and focus groups, and got valuable input from our key partners and ‘Jeopardy!’ viewers.”
