Ryan Reynolds is about to cash in on his involvement with Mint Mobile. T-Mobile has purchased the low-cost phone company for $1.35 billion. Reynolds is a minority owner in Mint Mobile. He owns 20 to 25 percent of the company and is also the spokesperson. In a statement, Reynolds said, “We are so happy T-Mobile beat out an aggressive last-minute bid from my mom Tammy Reynolds as we believe the excellence of their 5G network will provide a better strategic fit than my mom’s slightly above-average mahjong skills. I am so proud of the entire Mint team and so excited for what’s to come.” AUDIO hes staying on as spokesman btw.
Joe Exotic has thrown his name in the race for President. The Tiger King star made the announcement on his campaign website. One problem: Exotic is still in jail. He wrote, “Yes, I know I am in Federal Prison and you might think this is a joke but it’s not. It is my Constitutional right to do this even from here.” Exotic continued, “I have been put here only because of the corruption in the Department of Justice, three felons that were told how to lie under oath to further this agenda.” The Tiger King documentary brought Exotic’s story to a worldwide audience. The former zoo keeper is serving 21 years on a murder-for-hire conviction.
‘Complex’ says writer-director Quentin Tarantino is gearing up for his final film, which will begin production this Fall. The film, ‘The Movie Critic’, will reportedly focus on Pauline Kael, an influential movie critic. ‘The Hollywood Reporter’ says ““Kael, who died in 2001, was not just a critic but also an essayist and novelist. She was known for her pugnacious fights with editors as well as filmmakers. In the late 1970s, Kael had a very brief tenure working as a consultant for Paramount, a position she accepted at the behest of actor Warren Beatty.” Tarantino spoke about his final projects last year, even saying ‘Kill Bill: Volume 3’ was in the cards. He added “I do have an idea of what I would do with it.”
Brian May was knighted by King Charles during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace on March 14. The Queen guitarist received the honor not only for his contributions to music, but also for his ongoing charity work. The British government announced May as a recipient at the end of 2022. At that time, the rocker shared his joy in an interview with BBC News. “This is a kind of license, a kind of commission to carry on doing what I’m doing,” he explained, “and it gives me a bit more power to my elbow. So I’m very happy about that.” Following the ceremony at Buckingham Palace, May expressed appreciation that King Charles himself handled the honors. “We’ve had various conversations over the years and I like to feel that we have a kind of friendship,” May said of his cordial relationship with the king, noting that the two have “quite a lot in common.” “I have enormous respect for him. I think he’s been through some very difficult times and always behaved with incredible grace and dignity.” Asked what another of his bandmates, Freddie Mercury, would have thought of the honor, May was earnest. “Freddie would love it,” he asserted. “I think if he had been around, he would have been honored long ago. And very rightly so.”
Jack Black and the Farrelly Brothers have a Christmas comedy in the works called “Dear Santa”. (The Farrelly Brothers are the guys behind comedy classics like “Dumb & Dumber”, “Shallow Hal”, and “There’s Something About Mary”.) It’s about a kid who writes a letter to Santa . . . but he accidentally sends it to Satan instead. No word on who Jack is playing. It’ll also star Keegan-Michael Key and Brianne Howey from “Ginny & Georgia”.
Jack recently teased the movie on social media with a few photos of himself with Christmas decorations. (Deadline)
Kevin Smith started smoking pot after working with Seth Rogen on the movie “Zack and Miri Make a Porno”. But Kevin recently revealed that he QUIT toking, because he realized he, quote, “wasn’t really present anymore,” and had just been using it to cover “a very big wound in [his] heart.” Well, Seth Rogen was a little surprised to hear that. But he says, quote, “I think if you come into weed late in your life, it’s easier to give up. You’re an interloper. You’re a tourist. It’s just a phase for you. “You think you’re adopting a whole thing and years later, you’re like, ‘What am I doing? This is not me.'” He adds, quote, “But for me, it is me.” (Uproxx)
After starring in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “The Goonies” as a kid, Ke Huy Quan was ready for his career to skyrocket. And then it just . . . didn’t.
So even though he just won an Oscar for “Everything Everywhere All at Once”, he’s still “really scared” his career will stall again. He says, quote, “I’ve been down this road before and I’m so afraid that history is going to repeat itself. I said [to my agent], ‘Please, whatever you do, please make sure that does not happen.'” Quan actually had a conversation about this with Cate Blanchett at a recent event, and she gave him this advice . . . quote, “Just go with your heart and be irresponsible: Don’t worry about what other people think. “Choose something that you believe in, choose something that you love, and things will work out.” (People)

Earlier this month, Netflix announced that a new series is coming to the streaming giant – “Florida Man.” “We’ve all seen the meme. We’ve all seen the headlines about a seemingly singular ‘Florida man’ breaking laws in the most creative ways imaginable: ‘Florida Man Arrested for [fill in blank with wild crime, possibly involving alligators],’” Netflix wrote. According to Netflix, the show from Jason Bateman’s production company, Aggregate Films, aims to “dig way deeper into the swamp than a news snippet can.” The series will reportedly follow one particular man from Florida, Mike Valentine, who is a recovering gambling addict. Valentine reluctantly returned to the Sunshine State after a mob boss sent him to find his missing girlfriend. Throughout the show, Mike gets caught up in some situations “that would put some of the best ‘Florida Man’ memes to shame,” Netflix said. The show is set to debut on April 13, 2023.

“Saturday Night Live” has caused its share of controversy over the years. The website Ultimate Classic Rock put together a list of what it thinks are the 20 MOST controversial moments.
Here are 7 of them:
- Chevy Chase and Richard Pryor’s Word Association, (1975): It was only the show’s seventh episode, and they were already busting out the N-word.
- Buck Henry’s “Uncle Roy” sketches, (1978 – 1980): Roy, an obvious pedophile, would babysit his young nieces, played by Gilda Radner and Laraine Newman, and make them play really questionable games.
Despite the controversy, the sketches were created by two FEMALE writers, and were really kind of a public service announcement about child abuse within the family.
- Charles Rocket drops an F-Bomb, (1981): The show was in reboot mode after Lorne Michaels and the entire cast had quit following the previous season. It was an accident, but Rocket was fired soon after.
- Dana Carvey’s offensive Asian character, (1986 – 2000): It’s pretty interesting to look back now at what USED TO be okay. Like Carvey’s Chinese shopkeeper Ching Chang. (???) He appeared on the show SEVEN TIMES.
- Conan O’Brien loves the word penis, (1988): Back when he was an “SNL” writer, Conan came up with a sketch called “Nude Beach”, in which the characters . . . including host Matthew Broderick . . . say the word “penis” more than 40 times.
- The guys in Nirvana make out with each other (1992): After performing on the show, the band used the night’s sign out to send a message to the bigots and homophobes in the audience.
Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl, and Krist Novoselic started sucking face. Sadly, NBC CENSORED the guy-on-guy-on-guy action from the reruns . . . and the version streaming on Peacock.
7. Jimmy Fallon impersonating Chris Rock. . . in blackface, (2000): Interestingly, nobody even made a big deal out of this until it resurfaced in 2019.
