PBS has decided to suspend the third season of Finding Your Roots as the result of an internal investigation… Whatever. Basically PBS has suspended the third season of Finding Your Roots because of Ben Affleck. You’ll recall, once he learned that some of his ancestors were slave owners, Ben asked the show to censor their findings. Full Story

So for the last few days, Aaron Paul has been teasing a big announcement on Twitter and Instagram. I’ve got big news, and here’s a photo of a dessert my wife sent me in celebration of my new top secret project. Yesterday, he gets on Periscope and makes a rambling announcement about a new Breaking Bad spin-off featuring Jesse Pinkman in his post-Walter White life, living as a fugitive in Alaska. Full Story

By his investors, that is. Cavill was slated to star in the blatant Bond knock-off Stratton, in which he was to play an embattled MI5 agent who is the world's last hope against corruption or conspiracy or crab monsters or whatever. The movie was supposed to start principal photography this week, but only days before production, Cavill bailed on the project like it was Kaley Cuoco. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Today was Lindsay Lohan’s deadline to complete community service. There was a lot of speculation about whether or not she’d actually be able to do it. And if she couldn’t, she supposedly was going to flee the country on some rich dude’s payroll. Amazingly, she got it done, just in time. According to TMZ, Lohan has logged 125 hours and will be finally off probation. And how did this happen? Here’s how she put it on Instagram:

“Hard work pays off.” Yes. The hard work involved putting in “nearly 8 hours a day for several weeks without a break to get the job done”.

So… 8 hours a day is considered hard work now?

Yours in gossip,

This week the internet was scandalized when an Australian tabloid ran a story asserting that Rebel Wilson has been lying about her age and background since breaking out in Bridesmaids. Wilson’s age of record was 29, and she had at various points claimed to grow up in the “ghetto” with “bogan” (working class) parents. Full Story

I remember hearing a story last year of a woman who flew to Australia with an orange and it turned into a major drama when she got there. They’re serious over there about contamination and bio-transfers. So if you have pets, and you’re travelling there with them, they have to go into quarantine. Full Story

I’ve always said Jeremy Renner is good for gossip, and he is certainly giving us something to talk about recently. The Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour was famously peppy, and during an interview Renner and Chris Evans stepped in a pile of internet dog sh*t when they called Black Widow a “slut Full Story

Have you heard about this one? So Mae Whitman played the President’s Daughter in Independence Day. In 1996.   She was 8. Now they’re making Independence Day 2 to come out next year, a full 20 years later. All bets should be off, cast-wise, 20 years later. Who knows who will be available or alive? But in this case, just about everyone is coming back. Full Story

Generally speaking, I think people should play within their weight class. What I mean by that is I have very little patience for people who are smart, and know they’re smart, giving condescending lectures to people who they know don’t understand the same things they do, just so the smart person can congratulate themselves on how smart they are. Full Story

Adam Sandler’s new movie is so offensive no one wants to be in it

Adam Sandler is making a new movie, The Ridiculous 6, which is slated to air on Netflix at some point. It’s a spoof of Westerns, the title is a play on The Magnificent Seven, and it stars Sandler as a guy who’s raised in a band of Apaches after being adopted by them as a child. It’s the kind of premise that, were it masterminded by Mel Brooks, could probably be really f*cking funny, but the minute I heard Sandler was coming for my heritage, I felt a chill. Full Story

The Avengers are TOO PEPPY

We’ve said it before—the Avengers are the coolest club in Hollywood. When you put that group together, they’re a marketing flak’s wet dream. They sell themselves, they sell the movie, they sell the ongoing pop cultural domination of Marvel simply by showing up. Full Story
