SCOTUS has just ruled in favour of same sex marriage. The Hollywood Reporter posted a story yesterday about Hollywood’s “stromos”, identifying a Hollywood trend among straight actors appealing to the gay audience: Today's stromos are the flip side of gay actors who want to read straight for their careers: They are straight actors striving to read gayish to optimize their appeal — and maximize the number of butts, gym-molded or otherwise, in movie theater seats. Full Story

The cast of Magic Mike XXL was in Miami yesterday promoting the movie. They surprised the audience at one of the screenings too, showing up for some bump and grind. As you can see, Channing Tatum, the big star, the main event, got his ass in on some action too. Full Story

A breakout hit at both Sundance and Cannes this year, writer/director Rick Famuyiwa’s Dope is equal parts Risky Business, The Breakfast Club, and Boyz n the Hood. It feels like a John Hughes movie, in that it’s very much about teenagers and their lives but isn’t for kids, and instead of suburban Illinois Dope is set in Inglewood, California, in a tough neighborhood called “the Bottoms”. Full Story

Michael Fassbender was photographed in London yesterday hanging out with friends. Fassbender’s been busy, working on the Steve Jobs movie earlier this year, then in Cannes to promote Macbeth, and production is now underway on X-Men: Apocalypse. And they’re saying much of the story will be about his character’s relationship with Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique. Full Story

Jon Hamm looked GREAT arriving at Kimmel yesterday, non? Relaxed and healthy, with really good hair (the best his hair has ever been, I think), and reasonably well contained. On camera he seemed very tanned. I’m not sure if it’s just the settings on my laptop but on my screen at least, that’s some good colour, or foundation. Full Story

How does he do this?! It is just impossible to not like Channing Tatum. My heart is made of second-hand smoke and the last inch of bourbon in the bottle and even I can’t hold out—Tatum has totally won me over. He may be a walking slab of abs and Mr. Potato Head’s face, but goddamn if he isn’t the most likeable dude in Hollywood these days. Full Story

But she’s not promoting Ted 2. I say this because someone just came into my office, saw the photos of her up on the screen, and remarked casually that, “Oh, is she promoting Ted 2?” Because Ted 2, as you’ve likely seen, is currently being promoted and it’s opening this coming Friday. Full Story

The thinking man’s Blake Lively has just been announced as a lead in the new Bourne movie, which should be titled The Bourne Continuum if there is any sense to the naming mechanism of this franchise. There are no details as to her role but she’s either playing an assassin or a helpless bystander, as those are the only two roles for women in these movies unless your name is Joan Allen. Full Story

After an exhaustive casting process—their most laborious since they had such a hard time getting someone to voice Rocket Raccoon—Marvel announced they have found their new Spider-Man and he is the English child, Tom Holland. It’s a good choice—Holland was very memorable in The Impossible, and he’s been a favorite in the casting process for a while. Full Story
