Some good, and some great, American Horror Story news … creator Ryan Murphy teased a couple of new items for upcoming seasons.
One: My favorite; Jessica Lange, who said she was done with the show after Freak Show, just might be returning after she finishes her run in a play on Broadway.
Two: Next season might see two AHS stories, one in fall and one in spring.
Double the horror and Lange coming back? Oh.Yeah.
In other great horror TV show news … the great Patti LuPone has joined the Showtime fright-fest, Penny Dreadful, full-time.
I.Love.La.LuPone. Just don’t bring a cell phone around her.
Having Mama Grizzly Bore™ interview Donald [t]Rump for the conservative One America News network — all five of its outlets — is akin to sending a first grader to interview Obama about the Iran deal … except the first grader would have had better questions.
In Hot Men news, we’ve begun watching Public Morals on USA, which is about the Vice Squad units in New York City in the 1960s.
Oh, and Hot Men, too, like Neal McDonough, who plays killer Rusty Patton. Dreamy-eyed murderer … yeah, I can forgive the murderer part, I guess,
Austin Stowell plays Sean O’Bannon, the typical Hot Cop with a Heart of Gold, while Aaron Dean Eisenberg is another cop who could cuff me.
Kanye West was awarded the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs last weekend and threatened us with running for president in 2020.
Ladies and gentlemen, your First Lady, and former porn star, Kim Kardastrophe-West.
Obama has renamed Mt. McKinley Mt. Denali?
Um, no, he just changed the name back, m’kay?
And Denali isn’t some Kenyan word, nor is it an insult to McKinley—who is from Ohio and never once set foot in Alaska. M’kay?
So, it was same-sex couple David Moore and David Ermold who gave us Kentucky Kounty Klerk — thanks to Beth at Nutwood Junction for that — Kim Davis when they applied for a marriage license and she refused.
And so they went back and back, armed with a video camera and each time they were denied because Kim says God blah blah blah.
This week, even after being ordered by the courts to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Kim again refused to grant David Moore and David Ermold one, saying:
"I’m willing to face my consequences as you all will face your consequences when it comes time for judgment."
Your consequences is that you will be a four-time married, three-timed divorced adulterer looking for a job, while Moore and Ermold were get married — having been together twenty-seven years — and being happy.
That works for me.
UPDATE: Kim has been jailed for contempt ... cuz she's contemptible.
Anthony Horowitz, the author of a new James Bond novel, announced this week that actor Idris Elba was not right for the part of James Bond if and when Daniel Craig leaves the role. Horowitz said, ahem:
“Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.”
Too street? WTF does that even mean? And, remember, folks said Craig was too rough to be Bond, too; and too short. And when people went nuts at Horowitz’s lunacy, he quickly apologized:
“I was asked in my interview if Idris Elba would make a good James Bond. In the article I expressed the opinion that to my mind Adrian Lester would be a better choice but I’m a writer not a casting director so what do I know? Clumsily, I chose the word ‘street’ as Elba’s gritty portrayal of DCI John Luther was in my mind but I admit it was a poor choice of word. I am mortified to have caused offence.”
Idris took the high road in the kerfuffle, though with a hint of snark when he posted this to Instagram:
“Always Keep Smiling!! It takes no energy and never hurts! Learned that from the Street!!”
Hot.Suave.Funny.Hot. He is Bond.
Josh Duggar boarded a private plane last week and flew to Illinois where he ALLEGEDLY entered rehab for being, I forget, child molester, adulterer, porn addict, religious wingnut, or hypocrite.
The faith-based rehab — called Reformers Unanimous — is a hyper-Christian rehab that involves lots of Bible study and manual labor and absolutely NO therapy.
Oh, and Josh isn’t even there? Josh has not shown up to one single mandatory meeting or church service, so it appears that Josh is once again the “biggest hypocrite ever.”
And even his sister-in-law, has taken to Facebook to basically call him out for being a pedophile and an adulterer. And ruining the family's attempts to make money off being holier than thou without ever actually working a single day in their lives.
Yeah, Josh is the problem.
I love Cate Blanchett.
I love Lucy.
But Cate as Lucy in an upcoming film? I’m wondering about that.
