The musical voice of our generation, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea is no longer associated with a record label. You could say she got dropped by her label, or you could say she liberated herself from her label, but it all breaks down to this singular notion: for better or worse, there will be no Iggy Azalea “music” released in the foreseeable future.
I don’t know what Emmy Rossum and Cameron Monaghan are supposed to be looking at in this shot taken during the filming of Showtime’s Shameless. But I do know where their eyes are now, and that’s on anything besides a future Shameless script.
Despite being someone whose name is often prefaced by the words “What ever happened to,” Steven Seagal apparently still books interviews. And his most recent TV appearance was on yesterday’s episode of BBC Newsnight. Little did BBC Newsnight know that they were about to make the news themselves after they addressed elephant in the room, and I’m not talking about Steven’s spray-on action figure villain hairline.
The Hollywood Reporter says that producers of James Bond 25 announced today on Twitter that Danny Boyle is longer going to direct James Bond 25, which is supposed to be Daniel Craig’s last Bond movie. Danny is leaving due to “creative differences.”

It’s either fitting, or ironic, that the 007 logo sort of looks like a hand pointing, as if to say, “There’s the door, asshole.”
Danny is a big fan of the Bond films, and even featured Daniel Craig’s Bond in the opening ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics (which he directed). Danny’s frequent collaborative screenwriter John Hodge was reportedly working on a script for the next Bond movie based on an idea by Danny. Not to mention that Danny was reportedly MGM’s first choice to direct the film. Sam Mendes had directed the previous two Bond films, Skyfall and Spectre. Production on James Bond 25 is set to begin in December, so there’s still some time to find a replacement.
As for what exactly those creative differences are, it’s not known. Variety says that Danny was in the early stages of casting the new Bond girl and villain when the decision was made that he’d leave the production. Maybe they had creative differences over the Bond girl. Danny was reportedly working on updating the franchise to reflect the #MeToo era, and I can maybe see a disagreement happening there. Like between Danny and an older 007 traditionalist who tries to argue that #MeToo in James Bond’s world means a second Bond girl enters the bedroom and asks “Me too?” before dropping her clothes.
Say goodbye to Twitter draggings made by Armie Hammer, because he’s gone ahead and deleted his account. Vulture says that nobody is @-ing Armie by his name on Twitter anymore, and it most likely has to do with the BuzzFeed article titled “Ten Long Years of Trying To Make Armie Hammer Happen.” On Sunday, shortly after the post went up, Armie hopped on Twitter and slapped at the writer for their “bitter AF” perspective. Not long after that, Armie pulled the plug on his Twitter account.
If there’s an instructional book called “What To Expect When the Male Lead of Your Prestige Television Series Has to Leave Due to Alleged Creepiness,” I’m sure Netflix just sent their copy to Amazon.
Earlier this month, Jeffrey Tambor’s former assistant accused of him acting inappropriately around her. Jeffrey denied it, but Amazon decided to take a peek and investigate to see if there was any creepy fire where there was the creepy smoke. Sure was! Transparent actress Trace Lysette had us all holding back the barf when she alleged Jeffrey used his nasty talon feet to trap her while he thrust on her. BLECH! Apparently realizing nobody would want to get anywhere near him in a silk kimono going forward, Jeffrey has decided to quit Transparent.
