Yeah, get out of there, shirt! Go find some self-conscious shark with manboobs who needs you. Zac Efron and his ripped Wrestling Champions body don’t need you.
Based on the pictures taken on the Baywatch movie set last March, it looked like Zac would spend the entire movie shirtless. The trailer, which was released today, has determined that was a lie. Zac wears a shirt, he wears a leather jacket. The Rock, on the other hand, is only in a couple shirts. That might not be intentional. Paramount clearly blew all their budget on the amazing green screen effects at the 0:20 and 1:37 marks, which means they probably didn’t have a whole lot of money left over for The Rock’s custom-made shirts in size-PM (python arms). Regardless of the shirt situation, this trailer makes Baywatch the movie look almost as cheesy as Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding, ergo I’m kind of into it.
The Rock plays Mitch Buchannon, one of Leonardo DiCaprio’s former girlfriends (Kelly Rohrbach) plays a less silicone-y CJ Parker, Priyanka Chopra makes a quick 0.6-second appearance as someone who never hit the gym once during filming. And Zac plays a douchey gold medal-winning brah swimmer with Sun-In streaks who loves to party. Technically he plays Matt Brody, but that’s not exactly the Matt Brody I remember from the Baywatch TV series. Hmmm…I wonder who this new Matt Brody could be based on? I guess we’ll only know for sure if Paramount releases a second trailer showing The Rock catching Zac’s character pissing on the walls of the lifeguard station bathroom.
Whenever I read a headline about Prince Hot Ginge dating a new trick, I usually run over to the not-at-all Photoshopped picture of him and I on my bedside table and yell at his face for doing me wrong. But when I read about his newest-maybe piece at the always-truthful Sunday Express, I didn’t do any of that. I’m into this maybe-union. PHG usually only gets with stringy-haired blond Brit chicks, but this one is American (GASP!), a divorcee (DOUBLE GASP!), is bi-racial (TRIPLE GASP!) and a commoner actress who is on a basic cable show, not even HBO (QUADRUPLE GASP!). PHG is reportedly rubbing his fiery nipple knobs on actress Meghan Markle from the show Suits. THE QUEEN just fainted on a Corgi as Prince Philip thought, “Hmm, I wonder who she sponges off of?”
Both Variety and Deadline are saying that NBC is having “discussions” about the possibility of bringing back Will & Grace for a potential revival. Will & Grace ran from 1998 to 2006 on NBC. Sources tell Variety says the revival would be produced by NBCs sister studio Universal Television, but that’s all the information they have right now. Deadline’s sources had a couple more details. They say there’s an idea floating around about making it a one-off 10-episode series. They also still need to secure Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally, and Sean Hayes, and series creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan. There is also a chance that this new Will & Grace could be a Netflix thing, but again, nothing has been confirmed.
Apparently that Will & Grace reunion that happened last month did a lot more than just get people to think about not voting for Donald Trump. Variety says that NBC started talking about the possibility of a revival after they saw how much Will & Grace fans were losing their minds on social media over that election-themed mini-episode.
Of all the random shows to bring back to life, I am completely behind this one. But if NBC is really doing it for the fans, then this revival should be called Jack & Karen (oh and also Will & Grace). Jack and Karen were clearly the stars of the show. I would be totally ok if 9 out of 10 of those episodes were about Jack and Karen’s modern-day adventures, like Jack discovering the dog filter in Snapchat and Karen Googling shit like “Can you vape vodka.”
Despite what that header pic would lead you to believe, it doesn’t look like Leonardo DiCaprio will be in it. That’s too bad. I was hoping we’d get to see the Planeteers side-eye Captain Planet when they realize he spends about 75% of the year on a yacht.
That’s right, Justin Timberlake, put your hands together and pray to the heavens above that St. Starbucks will bless you with the chance to work with an angel like Britney Spears. And also if you have the time, ask St. Starbucks to send you a sacred Frapp in the event she needs a little convincing.
A few weeks ago, Britney admitted during an interview with Most Requested Live With Romeo that she would like to work with Steven Tyler, Katy Perry, and Justin Timberlake, who she called “very good.” The only name in that list that anyone cared about was Justin Timberlake, because who wouldn’t want to take a trip back to 2001? Let me just grab my magenta Motorola RAZR, a 12-pack of stick-in hair gems, and my nicest hanky-hem halter dress real quick and we’ll be off.
Variety reports that my dreams have come true, because Snoop Dogg and his fancy lady friend Martha Stewart are doing a show together. VH1, a network that already won my heart ten times over with excellent reality TV programming such as Rock of Love and I Love Money, has ordered an unscripted series starring Martha and Snoop tentatively titled Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party. The show will feature Martha and Snoop hosting dinner parties every week for a bunch of famous guests. Somewhere Khloe Kardashian is like “Hey guys, if you need any advice or tips on how to do that, feel free to gimme a call! I can talk any time! Schedule is totally open!”
