From the producer of Transparent, Jill Soloway, comes a web series created by comedian Jessie Kahnweiler, and it looks freaking dopppppe. Jessie plays Jessie, an aspiring YouTube star, a feminist, and a bulimic. The trailer portrays Jessie as the kind of gal who takes our anxieties out, rather than keeping them in. You’ll see what I mean while watching her crazy antics in the trailer. She’s definitely outspoken, and it’s pretty awesome.
“I’m so sick of asking chubby white men with fucking man buns for permission to be myself,” she shouts at two dudes in the opening to the trailer. This may be the best opening ever, and a truth rarely told. More »
And what a fearsome crew it 'tis!
We’ve all seen plenty of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) – but they only make up half of DC Comics’ legendary Justice League. Now, DC Comics has presented a new poster of the entire Justice League on their Facebook page that includes Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller). This is only artwork, so it just gives a hint of how these characters will look, but I’m certainly impressed with the badassery. The poster is also promoting the TV special DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League, which airs tonight at 9:30 on The CW.
It’s astounding…no, it really is. I couldn’t be happier that THE Tim Curry, you know, the original Dr. Frank-N-Furter, is joining Fox’s remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show, because let’s be honest, it just wouldn’t be real with out him. While we already reported that Laverne Cox will be taking over Curry’s role (and you know she’ll kill it), Tim will be playing the narrator/criminologist, which just feels freaking perfect. In the movie Charles Gray played the role, but make way for Tim. More »
It’s here and it’s greater than ever! Netflix just released a new Fuller House teaser featuring the full cast (sans Olsen Twins, of course).

Fresh off the high from their highly-acclaimed live version of The Wiz!, NBC announced today that they’re taking on another iconic musical this year: Hairspray. NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt revealed the news earlier today during the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour. He did add that the deal isn’t quite closed yet, but they’re expecting it to be completed in the next few days. Wait, does that mean the deal has a chance of falling through? No! I want them to do Hairspray! It’ll be so good! Because here’s the thing about Hairspray, even a bad version of it is still great. More »

At least they'll be there for you in some fashion.
No, it’s not the kind of reunion in which the cast of Friends will reprise their roles for a TV reboot ala Fuller House. We can only wish. The Friends are simply getting together so they can honor veteran sitcom director James Burrows, who recently directed his 1,000th episode in TV (for the new NBC show Crowded). The NBC special, airing in February, gathers many cast members from various Burrows’ landmark shows, including Taxi, Cheers, Frasier and Will & Grace, and it’s reported the entire Friends crew will be there, including Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry.

The truth has always been out there... they just needed a smart phone.
In a hilarious skit on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, self-proclaimed The X-Files lover Jimmy Kimmel inserted himself into an The X-Files scene in which Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) uncover a secret government lab housing aliens, natch. However, Jimmy is surprised Mulder and Scully don’t know it’s not the ’90s anymore. That they don’t know what a iPhone is OR how to use wi-fi to get on the Internet. Kimmel also finally says what we’ve all been thinking for years: Scully and Mulder need to have sex. Watch above to see what happens! Now, I’m right there with Kimmel on loving The X-Files, although this updated reboot on FOX is making me a little nervous. I just want it to have all the elements I loved from the original — the creepy conspiracy theories, the weird cases, the odd characters — but of course, to also give it a new perspective. And maybe a love story, I could definitely get on board with that if they do it right. I guess we’ll see when The X-Files premieres January 24 on FOX.
In a new promo for Saturday Night Live, Adam Driver reprises his evil Star Wars: The Force Awakens character when Kate McKinnon tries to steal the last french fry on his plate! He even whips out his lightsaber. This is the first time the actor will host SNL, and even expresses his insecurity when he finds out this is the first time they’ve filmed promos in a diner. He feels like no one takes him seriously since the promos are usually filmed in the SNL studios. “I know why,” Adam — who becomes emo Kylo Ren — responds. “Because I’m the new guy. And they don’t trust the new guys with the promos in the studio, so they brought us here, to this godforsaken diner to laugh and joke and dance like everything’s okay. But everything’s not okay.” Check out the hilarious promo above — and watch Adam’s melodramatic performance as emo Kylo Ren!
If you didn’t watch the Golden Globes on Sunday, here’s a recap of host Ricky Gervais’ joke. And remember, Ricky isn’t afraid to shy away from controversy. He took a particularly deep jab at Caitlyn Jenner, definitely offending some folks. This is what he said:
“I’ve changed. Not as much as Bruce Jenner, obviously – now Caitlyn Jenner, of course. What a year she’s had. She became a role model for trans people everywhere…She didn’t do a lot for women drivers, but you can’t have everything.” More »
