Last week, some alert employees at a Whataburger in Texas saved a 13-year-old girl from being abducted.  She was with a 79-year-old guy who’d just picked her up on the side of the road.  The employees could tell something about the situation didn’t seem right, so they called 911.  He’s now in jail.

Actor Lance Reddick died unexpectedly last week.  He was only 60 years old. Reddick’s body was found in his home on Friday.  All we know at this point is that he died “suddenly” from “natural causes.” Reddick played Lieutenant Cedric Daniels on the HBO series “The Wire”.  He was also Charon, the hotel concierge, in the “John Wick” movies. His other credits included the TV shows “Oz”“Fringe” and “Lost”, and the movies “White House Down” and “Godzilla vs. Kong”Keanu Reeves and “John Wick” director Chad Stahelski announced that the upcoming, fourth film in the series will be dedicated to Lance.  They also called him, quote, “the consummate professional and a joy to work with.” “John Wick:  Chapter 4” comes out on Friday. Reddick had several projects already completed, including the “John Wick” spinoff “The Ballerina”, a remake of “White Men Can’t Jump” that’s coming out in May, and the Disney+ series “Percy Jackson and the Olympians”. (Hollywood Reporter) 

Sam Neill recently announced he was diagnosed with stage three T-cell lymphoma last year.  But luckily, it’s been in remission for eight months. In an interview with The Guardian, he said he couldn’t care less about dying, but that it would annoy him.  Quote, “I’d really like another decade or two.  We’ve built all these lovely terraces, we’ve got these olive trees and cypresses . . . “I want to be around to see it all mature.  And I’ve got my lovely little grandchildren.  I want to see them get big.” Since his interview, Sam posted a video on social media about how tiresome it is to see headlines about his cancer, when he says he’s “alive and kicking.”  He said he starts filming a series soon called Apples Never Fall for Peacock. He’s also promoting his new memoir called “Did I Ever Tell You This?”.  He wrote it while undergoing treatment.  It comes out tomorrow. (Hollywood Reporter)

We often joke that Hollywood has run out of ideas, but it’s starting to look like that’s LITERALLY true.  Because now, they’re bringing us “Good Burger 2”.  (???) Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell actually appeared on the “Tonight Show” to announce the news to Jimmy Fallon, who FREAKED OUT like it was the greatest news he’s ever heard. (AUDIO)  (Here’s video.)

Kenan said, quote, “I can’t believe it’s been a little over 25 years since great customer service was born at Good Burger! “Being a part of something so many generations of people have come to love has made me so proud and now to be back where it all began working on the sequel is surreal!” “Good Burger 2” will be streaming on Paramount+ later this year.  The original came out in 1997.  It started as a sketch on the Nickelodeon show “All That”.

Remember what a huge shakeup it was when Tyra Banks replaced Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews on “Dancing with the Stars”? Well, after three seasons as host, Tyra is already stepping down.  She said she wants to focus on her “business and entrepreneurship.”  She added, quote, “I think it’s time to graduate from the dance floor to the stock market floor.” There’s no word if this had anything to do with it, but “Dancing with the Stars” moved from ABC to Disney+ last year. Judge Len Goodman also announced his departure recently.  He’s been with the show since it debuted in 2005. (Hollywood Reporter)

Travis Scott’s Air Jordans have the Nike swish logo REVERSED.  But he didn’t come up with that idea, and Dennis Rodman wants his props. That’s because Dennis released the Nike Air Darwin with a backwards slash back in 1994 . . . almost 30 years ago. At a recent sneaker convention, Dennis said, quote, “Come on, Travis, give me some credit . . . This ain’t new, brother.” (WARNING:  The video contains profanity.)

A ‘Megan Fox lookalike’ who quit her job to become an OnlyFans creator has opened up about her bizarre Transformers requests from subscribers. Taylor Ryan, 26, said she makes £25,000 (£30,000) a month after quitting her Costa Coffee and Amazon delivery driver jobs. It didn’t take long for people to strike up a resemblance between the model and the famous actress – prompting some unique requests. “‘It’s kind of laughable when I say I look like Megan Fox – I mean it’s Megan Fox,” Ryan told Daily Mail, “but people on TikTok started saying it and commented on my posts.” The comments inspired Ryan to start “wearing my hair extensions more and wearing a cat eye.” She said that someone once asked her to wear the same outfit as Fox in the Transformers film. They paid $300 (£250) for her to sport a bra top and short denim shorts while bending over and opening a car bonnet.

Tekashi 6ix9ine was booted from a baseball stadium in Miami on Friday night after drinking too much booze and causing a ruckus. “He was drunk, he was inebriated and he was out of control,” the eyewitness adds. “There were a lot of families there last night and he was bothering people.” In a video posted on social media, the “Trollz” rapper could be seen standing up and blocking other fans’ view as he obnoxiously waved his large flag and pulled on the net. He also appeared to be losing his balance and falling over from drinking too much in a separate clip shared on Instagram. At one point, officials — whom we’re told were either security guards or police officers — were seen asking Tekashi to leave as two of his pals tried to intervene.

MovieWeb.com put together a list of the 15 smartest villains in movie history.

The website says, quote, “These smart villains aren’t just capable of manipulating the protagonist, but they also leave the audience conflicted on whether or not to root for them. “Their cunning behavior is paired with a brilliant flair that leaves us stunned.”

Here are some highlights:

  1. John ‘Jigsaw’ Kramer:  The “Saw” movies:  “A serial killer who has zero kills and no blood on his hands?  That’s got to be some impressive scheming.”
  2. Hans Gruber,  “Die Hard”:  “A hostage situation on Christmas is something only the smartest villain in the room could think of.”
  3. Lord Voldemort:  the “Harry Potter” movies:  “As villainous as they come.  He is obsessed with power and immortality and paired with his magical genius; he’s basically unstoppable.”
  4. Anton Chigurh,  “No Country for Old Men”:  “[He is] is devoid of any emotion, playing with the fate of his victim without as much as a flicker in his eyes, making him an apt hitman.”
  5. The Joker,  The “Batman” franchise:  “He rarely seems to have any [motivation] at all, and yet he carries out his schemes with unbridled attention to detail, constantly pressing Batman’s buttons, edging him towards crossing that one line he swore he’d never cross.”
  6. Thanos,  The Marvel Cinematic Universe:  “At his core, Thanos sees himself as the courageous one who acts upon things that others wouldn’t.  But his covert idealism makes him scary and indifferent to life.”
  1. Amy Elliott Dunne,  “Gone Girl”:  “Amy is a feminist because she uses society’s perception of women as a tool against the injustices faced by women in the misogynistic, male-dominated world, which makes her all the more intimidating.”
  1. Hannibal Lecter,  “The Silence of the Lambs”:  “A man of vicious words, depraved in his actions and capable of turning the psychological locks of anyone he confronts.”
