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

If you were a Disney/Marvel publicist, last week probably wasn’t great. Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans were sexist (click here for a refresher). Robert Downey Jr walked out of an interview (click here Full Story

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

Katie Holmes took Suri to the Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday night. And Suri clearly enjoyed it. Arms up in the air, trying to shove air balloons into her clutch…she’s 8 now, and this event hits all the sweet spots for someone her age. It must have been magic. By the way, Jamie Foxx was also at Kids’ Choice on Saturday. Full Story

Duana’s (snarky screenwriter) take Oh NO, you guys, terrible news! It seems that Hollywood has gotten a clue, based on how Shondaland kills everything in its path on Thursday nights, how well Jane The Virgin has done, and how Empire has JUGGERNAUTED its way through season one. Hollywood has decided that this pilot season, they should be looking for diversity. Full Story

Deadline published a disgusting article meant to make us mad

Sarah’s (snarky blogger) take Yesterday evening an article by Nellie Andreeva was posted on the industry trade website Deadline—formerly the bastion of hard-edged news harpy Nikki Finke—positing that the current pilot season is shaping up to be the most diverse in recent memory, maybe ever, with more roles opening up to “ethnic actors” following the success of shows like Empire, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, and Black-ish. Full Story
