OMG: Anna Kendrick Called Barack Obama What?!

Published

on

The adorable Anna Kendrick is not only known for her acting talents, but also her quick wit and charm. Wit and charm that has been demonstrated on many a talk show since rising to fame. When Kendrick stopped by The Late Show last night to promote her new film A Simple Favor, her charm hit new heights as she told the best presidential meeting anecdote yet. You won’t believe what she called President Barack Obama!

The chat between late night host, Stephen Colbert, and Kendrick started out simply enough with some brief banter over Colbert’s new beard. Seeing as last night was the Pitch Perfect star’s fourth visit, Colbert mentioned that Kendrick is a now a “platinum member” of The Late Show. And in the next minute she proves why. Colbert pulled out a series of photos that depicted Kendrick’s meeting of President Barack Obama for the first time, and how he consequently buckled over with laughter. When Colbert pressed to know what could make the former president laugh so hard, Kendrick revealed that she called Obama “an a**hole”!!!!!!!!

Of course Kendrick didn’t mean for the unfortunate nickname to be taken seriously. She got caught up in pressure around the situation and it just happened to slip out. No amount of reading will make the exact conversation clear enough, so click the link below to see the entire hilarious conversation.

A Simple Favor is in theaters now.

Lee Daniels Speaks Out On The ‘Pain, Anger, Sadness And Frustration’ Surrounding The Jussie Smollett Scandal

Published

on

Although never mentioned by name, it’s clear that Empire creator, Lee Daniels, is still processing “the freaking roller coaster” Jussie Smollett has put him through.

Lee Daniels took to Instagram on Wednesday night to speak out about the Jussie Smollett scandal. The caption to the video states that Lee was “in [his] feelings last week,” alluding to the further developments surrounding the case. In the video, after brushing his teeth, Lee takes a moment to address the fact that Jussie is still appearing in new episodes of the hit show because they were filmed prior to “the incident.” In the wake of the allegations, the show has released a statement confirming the fact that Jussie has been written out of the last two episodes of the season. Lee’s pain and frustration stems from something deeper than character arcs as he told his followers “this is not what the show was made for. This show was made to bring America together to talk about the atrocities that are happening right now in the streets.”

On January 29th, Jussie made claims that he was the victim to a racially-motivated attack. After an extensive investigation, Chicago police believe that the alleged attack was fake. Since being charged, Jussie has pleaded not guilty on 16 felony counts for allegedly making false statements to police. Jussie also denies claims that he faked the ordeal due to his dissatisfaction with his salary. No word on whether Jussie will return to Empire next season as of yet.

Dan And Eugene Levy Announce That Next Season Of ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Will Be It’s Last

Published

Well ain’t this some real, sad Schitt…

Very few television shows gain popularity over time which is why I am astonished by the news that Schitt’s Creek will be ending after next season! It’s got charm. It’s got wit. It’s got heart. Not to mention outstanding performances by LITERALLY everyone in the cast. Ugh, I’m more upset than a disgruntled pelican.

I guess we should all take comfort in knowing that the show is ending on the terms of  co-creators (and stars) Dan Levy and Eugene Levy. Just moments ago they released an official statement announcing their renewal for a 6th and final season. In the statement they express their gratitude for being given “the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with the final chapter that [they] had envisioned from the very beginning.”

To Our Dear Fans…

A post shared by Dan Levy (@instadanjlevy) on

Over the course of it’s five seasons, Schitt’s Creek has been praised by fans and critics alike for their hysterical yet positive storylines. Dan Levy, whose character is identifies as pansexual, has been clear since the show’s beginning that the world of Schitt’s Creek is a tolerant one that is free of bias and homophobia. I can’t tell you how many times I laughed and then snot-cried on my couch while watching this show!

There are three more episodes of season 5 of Schitt’s Creek to still be aired with a final fourteen episodes airing sometime in 2020. Seventeen episodes doesn’t seem like nearly enough time for a proper bereavement to deal with this Schitt-y news but I guess we will have to make do.

QUESTION: Did You Know Cole Sprouse Could Sing?!?

Published

on

All those years on Disney and never once did we see Cole Sprouse belt out a few bars but now the bruiting teenager suddenly wants to sing?!

You know Cole Sprouse. He was on Friends as Ross’ son, Ben. He was in the Adam Sandler hit, Big Daddy. He and his twin brother, Dylan, even starred as the titular roles in the Disney channel original series, The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody. I can’t tell you which one is which because the twin thing has always confused me.

Nevertheless, Cole has grown up quite a bit and is now starring in the wildly popular, CW hit Riverdale. The series is a dark twist on the old Archie comic books and Cole plays the social outcast, Jughead Jones. Last night was the show’s second annual musical episode and this time they paid homage to Heathers: The Musical. Jughead didn’t so much as hum one note in last years musical so fans were SHOOK when he had an entire duet with co-star Lili Reinhart last night! The pair sang a beautiful rendition of “Seventeen” along with Vanessa Morgan and Madelaine Petsch…which is surprising because no of us knew that Cole could sing!

Of Cole’s hidden talent, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa  said “Cole and I talked about it a while ago and I said, ‘How do you feel about musicals and stuff?’ He basically said, ‘Listen, I never sang for Disney. It would take a lot.’” This might be a new avenue in Cole’s career, however, as he sings in his new movie Five Feet Apart as well. Well color me surprised! Good job hiding this suite talent, Cole!

Riverdale airs on The CW Wednesdays at 8p EST.
