Rogue One’s Alan Tudyk Reveals The ‘Tricky” Aspect Of Shooting The Star Wars Film

I definitely look back on it fondly. It was a challenge, in that the script was changing at a certain point…. There was a certain point early on where the story shifted. A new writer was brought in and things were changed. And so, I had met Jyn Erso’s character one way, and they even used it in the trailers where I say, ‘Hello, Cassian said you are a friend. I will not kill you.’ And people, when I would go to Comic-Cons would say, ‘Could you write that?’ I’m like, ‘It’s not in the movie, that quote!’ It was just an early version of how I met Jyn Erso. So things changed.We were on set and we’d be like, ‘Ok so this scene is after we’ve met? Or before? Oh, we just met in a new scene that happened.’ So that’s tough. That’s tricky. That can shake your faith.

Steve Martin Has Thoughts On Whether Planes, Trains And Automobiles Should Have An Oxford Comma

Steve Martin is regarded as one of comedy’s greatest contributors as, over the last six decades, he’s made people laugh with his zany antics and great comic timing. Like many of his comedy peers, he was able to transition from being just a stand-up comedian to a bankable comedic actor in Hollywood. In his decades-long career, Martin has starred in many classic films, including the beloved John Hughes comedy Planes, Trains and Automobiles. And recently, the actor shared his thoughts about whether the film’s title should have an Oxford comma.

Ghostbusters Afterlife: 7 Quick Things We Know About The Sequel

Ghostbusters Afterlife Has Ties To The Original Films

Unlike the very enjoyable 2016 Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters: Afterlife won’t be a complete reboot of the franchise. Instead, it will be a sequel and the third installment in the original Ghostbusters films. It’ll have many ties to the first two Bill Murray-starring films.

The official Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer has so many easter eggs, from the Ghostbusters suits to Ecto-1. The biggest thing tying this film to the original movies is that Callie, Phoebe, and Trevor are all family members of one of the original Ghostbusters. It hasn’t been revealed which one is Trevor and Phoebe’s grandfather, but most signs point to them being the grandchildren of Egon Spengler (played by the late Harold Ramis).

Phoebe’s appearance looks a lot like a younger, girl version of Spengler, and in the trailer, you can see that Spengler’s Ghostbusters’ suit is hanging in the closet of her grandfather’s house. Many of the details surrounding Ghostbusters: Afterlife is being kept under wraps, but this may just be the beginning of introducing legacy Ghostbusters into this world.

Fifty Shades’ Dakota Johnson Says She Had An Anxiety Attack Filming Her New Movie With Jason Segel

Bernie Sanders Released an Inauguration Meme Sweatshirt and It’s Already Sold Out

Of course, Bernie Sanders found a way to help people using the “Bernie in a chair” meme. Seriously, is anyone surprised?

During the Inauguration of President Joe Biden on Wednesday, January 20 (a.k.a. three days ago), an image of the Vermont senator looking particularly cold in his now-famous mittens, winter coat, and no-nonsense face mask went viral. Sanders was quickly photoshopped into every iconic photo, painting, and movie scene you can think of, so it’s no wonder his team quickly whipped up a sweatshirt for his campaign store. 

The “Chairman Sanders Crewneck” is $45 on the website and 100% of proceeds go toward Meals on Wheels Vermont. Actually, the sweatshirt was $45. It’s already completely sold out, according to the website, which states that “due to overwhelming demand” those who were able to order the crewneck will have to wait 4-8 weeks before receiving their package. 

So yeah, Bernie Sanders has seen a lot of your memes. 

“I was just sitting there trying to keep warm, trying to pay attention to what was going on,” he said during an interview on Late Night With Seth Meyers on January 21. “What was really nice is the woman who made the mittens lives in Essex Junction, Vermont, she is a schoolteacher and a very, very nice person. She has been somewhat overwhelmed by the kind of attention that is being shown to her mittens.”

However, Sanders wasn’t nearly as grumpy as the photo would have you think. “I was in tears seeing the new president getting sworn in and the old president leaving Washington,” he told Seth Meyers. “I think the president is off to a very good start. What i liked about his inaugural remarks and the general tone of his administration is he recognizes that this country faces a set of unprecedented crises, from the pandemic to the economy to the very threats against democracy to climate change to income and wealth inequality.”

He continued, “I think if we can give him the support that he needs in congress, he can, in fact, be an extremely progressive president addressing the crises facing working families.”


A Valuable Lesson Casey Affleck Learned On The Set Of Ocean’s Eleven

Now you’d think that with so many cooks in the kitchen, the making of Ocean’s Eleven would take longer but, as it turns out, the all-star cast of Ocean’s Eleven was super productive. Those guys were clearly pros and managed to split up work and play in an effective way. At the time, Casey Affleck was in his early ‘20s and had yet to seriously break out. He would, of course, later do so, with true breakout performance arriving alongside Brad Pitt in 2007’s The Assassination of Jesse James.

The ‘Driver’s License’ Drama Continues—Here’s Everything You Need to Know

Still trying to figure out why “Drivers License” is all over your feed? Think about it this way: Remember when Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan were feuding over Aaron Carter? That’s kind of what’s going down between Olivia Rodrigo, Joshua Bassett, and Sabrina Carpenter. 

Here’s everything you need to know about “Driver’s License” and the drama behind the official breakup hit of 2021. 

Who’s involved?

In case those names mentioned above mean nothing to you, Olivia Rodrigo, 17, stars in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on Disney+ alongside Joshua Bassett, 20. And just like the original High School Musical cast, the onscreen pair was rumored to be dating in real life. They even wrote music together that was used in the show. 

However, more recently, Bassett has been “spotted” with Sabrina Carpenter, 21, who first rose to fame on Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World (man, everything is a reboot these days).

What supposedly happened?

Per People, this led fans to believe that Bassett had split with Rodrigo for Carpenter. The timing isn’t super clear here, since people have basically pieced it together and made inferences from what’s posted on Instagram, and no one involved has commented on it. (So let that tell you to take this all with a grain of salt.) Bassett and Carpenter went as Sharkboy and Lavagirl for Halloween, which could be a couple costume in the romantic sense or the friendship sense, but they were definitely “together” in some way.

How is that part of “Drivers License?” 

In the lyrics of the song, Rodrigo sings about getting her license “just like we always talked about,” which fans think is a reference to Bassett, as a resurfaced video indicates he helped her learn to drive. A few lines later, Rodrigo references a “blonde girl” who is “older” and made her feel insecure, possibly Carpenter. Then again, back in July, Rodrigo posted a video of herself working on the song in which the line references a “brunette.” So the change to “blonde” could be totally benign.  

What’s the Taylor Swift connection?

Rodrigo has been a fan of Swift’s for years, and TayTay recently congratulated her on her success after “Drivers License” started breaking serious records and topping the charts. Swift was known to write diaristic songs when she was Rodrigo’s age and even revisited the teenage love triangle theme (albeit a fictional one) on her Folklore album. 

What are people saying?

Oh, anything and everything. It’s become a huge trend on TikTok to explore the various points of view presented in the song, as well as to theorize about the real-life drama that could have inspired it. The good news is that Bassett praised the song on Instagram, and everyone seemed to be on mostly good terms, even if feelings were hurt at some point.

But then Joshua Bassett released his own song…

Bassett released the track “Lie, Lie, Lie” on January 14, following the popularity of “Driver’s License.” Fans had particular feelings about him using a car in the artwork for the track, which many felt was a direct reference to Rodrigo’s record-breaking song.
