So much joy seeing James Saito and @vivianbang, who co-starred in my 2004 film ROBOT STORIES, knocking 'em dead in ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE.

Lucifer star Tom Ellis and his fiance took to Twitter to let generous fans know: if they want to help celebrate the nuptials, fans should donate to Planned Parenthood (and here’s my editorial reminder to also consider an abortion fund — I feel certain Lucifer wouldn’t mind if you went local with your gift).

Django/Zorro isn’t just an underpopulated AO3 pairing tag, it was also a comic by Quentin Tarantino, Matt Wagner, and Esteve Polls published by Vertigo that told the continuing tales of Django Unchained’s leading man.

Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man, (500) Days of Summer) is being looked at to helm the live-action Snow White film from Disney, because why hire someone interesting to direct a fun, big budget princess movie when you can hire a guy who washed out of his own Spider-Man franchise (just to be clear, I love Andrew Garfield Spidey, but c’mon).
