All Other TV News
Besides the Duffer Brothers, only Finn Wolfhard knows what the Stranger Things spinoff will be, and only because he guessed it.
George R.R. Martin is feeling feisty and competitive with The Rings of Power. Great. NOW GO WRITE, GEORGE.
People are discussing the single best line reading they’ve seen on TV or in a movie, and I have to say, no argument here:

They’re threatening us with a musical based on Smash, which literally no one asked for.
The Simpsons came for Fox News, Tucker Carlson and the collapse of the middle class and I am here for it.
How bad is Netflix’s Q1 collapse? This bad.
The least surprising story of the day. Honestly, the thing that is the most offensive is just the sheer lack of originality.
The upcoming Disney+ Andor series will turn what you know about Star Wars on its head, according to showrunner Tony Gilroy.
Fortunately, it sounds like Lucasfilm has learned its lesson and got ahead of the nastiness that Obi-Wan actress Moses Ingram is going to face from the more racist corners of the fandom.
I just love this story even though it has nothing to do with TV.
Give Angela Lansbury all of the awards. (And then go rewatch The Manchurian Candidate).
Elon Musk is the latest (completely unsurprising) gross man. He allegedly propositioned a SpaceX employee during a massage, exposed himself to her and offered her a horse. When she reported the incident to SpaceX, they paid her $250,000 to stay quiet.
By the way, this story came out one day after Musk tweeted this:
In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party.
But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.
Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold … 🍿

So, Frank Langella. According to cast and crew who worked with him on Fall of the House of Usher, his claims in his column that he was fired for telling an “off-colored joke,” calling people “baby and honey” and maybe being too huggy, was barely scratching the surface of what he did. Deadline has specific “jokes” Langella told and they are not in any way work appropriate. Furthermore, he pressured people to talk about their sexual experiences and regaled them with stories of his own when they clearly did not want to hear them, made racially inappropriate comments, opposed intimacy coordinators after he made other actors uncomfortable with his inappropriate touching and just sounds like a goddamned nightmare on set.
Sounds pretty bad, Googling “Roman Polanski France crime” to learn more about this https://t.co/7dZlutnSfK

Sarah Jessica Parker says she hasn’t spoken to Chris Noth since the allegations about him came out.
I’m not going to post about the Depp/Heard trial because I think doing so just accomplishes what he wants: to revictimize Heard. But I will share this essay from a woman who supported Depp … until she didn’t.
“The scariest thing about it was that it didn’t feel like I was falling for propaganda at all. I didn’t feel like I was being manipulated, though of course I was. I was simply going along with what the whole world was thinking, and there was no other side to the story—which, of course, should have been the clearest sign that it was propaganda. The whole thing started to feel really insidious, like it had been expertly astroturfed, and like I had been manipulated to support an abuser.”
The Actor’s Equity Association had secured release from non-disclosure agreements for actors who worked with Scott Rudin, and they’ll soon be allowed to tell their stories.
Rebel Wilson opened up about being sexually harassed by one of her co-stars before the #MeToo moment happened. Wilson, who has a law degree, documented the event with her agency and made sure that higher-ups knew what happened, but chose to finish filming the movie.
I’ve been thinking a lot about MeToo and the men who had their lives “ruined” by assault or harassment allegations, so…I decided to do some googling into Where Are They Now
