John Cleese reacts to Mark Hamill GIF, gets a reply from the Jedi himself

TwitterFacebook

Anyone who follows Mark Hamill on Twitter (and if you don’t, you really should), will know that he’s a big John Cleese fan.

Everyone’s favourite Jedi isn’t shy about it.

Exhibit A: A response he wrote to someone back in 2018, describing the Fawlty Towers star as “a comic idol”.

Cleese is a comic idol of mine. (I’m watching Fawlty Towers as I write this.) 😂

Dr. Dre, who donated $70 million to USC, says his daughter got in ‘on her own’

Dr. Dre, who donated $70 million to USC, says his daughter got in ‘on her own’

TwitterFacebook

Dr. Dre wrote that his daughter Truly was accepted to the University of Southern California “all on her own” on Saturday. Given the college admissions scandal that’s still making headlines, this was a strange brag — the school literally has a building named after him.

“My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!” Dre wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post. Presumably, it was deleted because people quickly pointed out a $70 million donation he made to the school with executive Jimmy Iovine in 2013, which funded the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation. (Dr. Dre’s legal name is Andre Young.) Read more…

Patrons at the popular New York City gay bar Pieces got a big surprise on Friday night when ho-hum music superstar Adele and one of her besties, Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, dropped by for some drinks and some fun. 

Introducing herself onstage as a “stay-at-home mom,” Adele garnered loud cheers from the crowd during the bar’s “Frisky Fridays” drag show. Adele was later joined by Lawrence who was having just as much fun as her pal.

Amy Poehler would be totally up for a ‘Parks and Recreation’ revival

Amy Poehler would be totally up for a ‘Parks and Recreation’ revival

We may now know the reason why a Parks and Recreation revival is yet to happen — and the issue doesn’t appear to be the willingness of certain cast members.

The problem may be that the show’s co-creator Mike Schur is just too damn busy.

“Mike Schur is currently working on about five shows,” Amy Poehler (aka Leslie Knope), told Variety on the carpet for Thursday night’s Parks and Recreation 10th anniversary reunion event. 

The good news? She definitely didn’t rule out the possibility of a return, once Schur has a bit more time on his hands. Read more…

Jordan Peele recently told Mashable that everything in his latest movie, Us, is deliberate.

Could the same also be said for his fashion choices?

The writer/director attended a UK junket to promote his new movie, and dressed in a checkered shirt and a red jacket for the occasion. 

And it wasn’t long before someone on Twitter made an interesting connection.
