Here’s The Trailer For The Movie Version Of “Dear Evan Hansen” Where 27-Year-Old Ben Platt Plays A High School Student
In the new trailer for the movie version of the 2016 hit Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, 27-year-old Ben Platt reprises his titular title role as a high school student, following the tradition of adults playing totally unbelievable kids in movies and TV. Ben even went and stole Stockard Channing’s Rizzo wig from Grease to get the look just right. Ben won a Tony for the role but judging by his aged appearance in the trailer, he’s more likely to win a lifetime achievement award than an acting trophy for the 2021 Oscars race.
Coronavirus begat Gal Gadot asking the Tone Deaf Avengers to Imagine a world where irony does not exist. Not to be outshone, for the occasion of the Black Lives Matter movement, we will be subjected to a barrage of actors emoting about racism while serving black and white Stanislavsky turtleneck Inside The Actors Studio earnestness. In a video for a new initiative called I Take Responsibility, “a cadre of stars staring directly into cameras as they pledge to take responsibility for how they’ve perpetuated racism or allowed it to go on in their presence.” (via The Hollywood Reporter). But don’t get too excited, nobody gets too specific. But we do get to hear Justin Theroux take responsibility for “every not so funny joke,” something you’ll never hear from me! #ITakeNoResponsibilityWhatsoever
Richard E. Grant Says That Julianne Moore Got Fired From “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” For Wanting To Wear A Fat Suit And Rubber Nose
Recently, Julianne Moore appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and admitted that she’d been fired from Can You Ever Forgive Me?. That’s the movie starring Melissa McCarthy as real-life literary scammer Lee Israel. Melissa was nominated for Best Actress by both The Academy and BAFTA, and the movie was nominated for Best Picture and Best Screenplay respectively. Julianne didn’t say why she got fired, only that the director at the time didn’t like the direction she was going with the character. It was the only time Julianne’s ever been fired from a movie and she was clearly still butt-hurt over it. She even said she couldn’t bring herself to watch it, though made sure to praise Melissa with a perfunctory verbal air kiss.
Diane Von Furstenberg once put her logo on paper towels but did she ever put it on a gerbil cozy? I kid! People reports that, on a recent episode of Whatch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Diane Von Furstenberg got into the time she got on top of Richard Gere in a game cleverly titled “DVF or WTF?” The sad part of this is that Julianne Moore, who talked about getting fired from Can You Ever Forgive Me?, had to participate and she’s won an Oscar. In the last decade. So she doesn’t need to be lowering herself into this mess.
Cleaning crews at The Beverly Hilton are probably still vacuuming up the shards of glitter that flew off of Billy Porter when he twirled in that amazing technicolor dreamcape, and are mopping up the Fiji water that people spewed out after realizing they were in the presence of the one and only Fiji Water Girl, and are disinfecting the floor after hundreds of people shit themselves as Baroness Jamie Lee Haden-Guest (seriously, she’s a baroness) sashayed onto the red carpet and they thought, “Damn, Brigitte Nielsen is looking hot after birthing out a baby!” People probably shit out everything in their system and are going to need some probiotics to get their guts good again. I see what you did there Queen of Activia!
I like to think that when George Clooney goes to bed every night, he falls asleep to the vision of stepping off Air Force One, waving to the good people, and then Amal Clooney has to elbow him once he starts muttering “My fellow Americans” in his sleep. That may be George Clooney’s dream, but it sure as hell ain’t Julianne Moore’s.
