Many movies ago, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. met on the set of I Know What You Did Last Summer and fell madly in love, which doesn’t happen very much in Hollywood. Normally stars meet, they get the underwear tingles and settle things during a quick romp in their trailer. But not for SMG and Freddie. Their love has endured for twenty years, so in a bit of throwback humor, SMG recalled a time when Freddie appeared on The Howard Stern Show in 2001 and discussed his upcoming plans for marriage with host Howard Stern. And of course, Howard gave his congratulations by basically asking Freddie “Why the hell do you wanna do that?”
Pour one out for the most annoyingly precocious child on TV who grew to be an annoyingly precocious adult. In a move that surely NOBODY saw coming, Punky Brewster has been canceled. The revival of the 1984 series followed a grown Soleil Moon Frye as she navigated motherhood and divorce and life as a photographer, all while taking in another precocious child just like she was way back in the day. I mean, with a description like that how could you not watch it? Apparently very easily, as the series only last one measly season on NBC’s Peacock streaming network.
Since Hollywood hasn’t finished completely fucking with my childhood, a new remake of the 1999’s She’s All That is apparently in the works, starring 19-year-old Addison Rae, the second-most followed (60 million+) person on TikTok. Yep, a TikTok person with no acting experience in a big-budget movie. That’s where we are right now. And if you thought that Hollywood has completely run out of ideas, the new version, which will feature a gender-swapped plotline, is currently titled He’s All That. You know they all high-fived themselves for that one.
More news from the movie franchise that just refuses to die. For anybody interested, the never-ending subject of “who should be the next Batman” now features another missed contender to add to its complicated history––only this one is the most random AND the least likely to ever come to light.
Freddie Prinze Jr. is returning to television for the latest reboot (I know, I know, but it’s not like it’s The Facts Of Life) of Nancy Drew. Will 43-year-old Freddie be playing the teenage sleuth Nancy’s accomplice, nemesis or potential love interest? NO! He’s playing Nancy’s dad! It’s ok to cry. Time is happening to all of us. File this under: YOU’RE OLD.
The original Miss Buffy Summers herself (technically the original TV Buffy Summers) Sarah Michelle Gellar is coming out in favor of the new Buffy The Vampire Slayer reboot which is being produced by original Buffy creator (he actually did the movie too) Joss Whedon.
After it was announced back in July that Buffy would be getting the reboot-treatment, the Buffyverse (the fans of the show, God, can’t we just be called “fans” anymore? The gays have enough identifying labels for me to deal with) was in an uproar. Usually when things get remade they stink to high-Hell, and they did not want the same here. And also probably a bit-o-racism because, you know, the new Buffy is going to be black.
