Will LIL NAS X stick to his promise of buying socks for all his followers, now that “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” has hit #1? He did re-Tweet someone who reached out to PRESIDENT BIDEN because she hasn’t received hers yet.

When Joss Whedon took over directing duties on “Justice League”, he upset a lot of people.  Especially RAY FISHER, who played Cyborg.  Fisher has been very vocal about Whedon’s alleged abuses on the set. And a recent article about his allegations includes this new revelation:  Whedon was also a jerk to GAL GADOT, after she objected to some of his script changes. A so-called “source” says, quote, “Joss was bragging that he’s had it out with Gal.  He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie.” Supposedly, Gal and “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins took their beef all the way to the head of Warner Brothers.  Reached for comment, Gal would only say, quote, “I had my issues with [Whedon] and Warner Brothers . . . handled it in a timely manner.”  

There’s a Hollywood rumor that actors Russell Crowe and Chris Hemsworth are co-producing a sequel to the 2000 box office smash, Gladiator. The plot would have Hemsworth,play the son of the late Maximus, made famous in the original film by Crowe. Apparently Chris Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky had the idea. The first film earned over $400 million worldwide and earned 11 Oscar nominations. Hemsworth and Crowe are together in the upcoming Marvel sequel Thor: Love and Thunder. 

Sylvester Stallone will not appear in the upcoming Creed III.

Stallone in 2015’s Creed got him an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor. That film was followed by Creed II, in 2018. Both Creed films were box office and critical successes. Creed III, directed by star Jordan in his directorial debut, is scheduled to be released on Nov. 23, 2022. Stallone said his recut of Rocky IV is complete.  It was never done to his satisfaction, so he was grateful to go back in order to deliver his vision. The 1985 picture was a massive success and introduced audiences to Dolph Lundgren, who played the towering Ivan Drago, the Soviets’ prize boxer. The film marked Carl Weathers’ final physical appearance in the series

HBO Max has a 10-episode series order for Minx, a half-hour comedy set in L.A. in the 1970s about a young feminist who joins forces with a low-rent publisher to create the first erotic magazine for women. Ophelia Lovibond (Elementary) and Jake Johnson (New Girl) star as the feminist and publisher.  HBO Max that also includes The Flight Attendant, Generation, Gossip Girl, Head of the Class, Made for Love, the new Sex and the City, Station 11, Pretty Little Liars and a slate of DC Comics series including Greg Berlanti’s Green Lantern, J.J. Abrams’ Justice League Dark and many more.

An animated Peeps movie is in development . . . and it’s described as a cross between “Trolls” and “Smurfs”.  It’ll be about “a ragtag group of Peeps characters who set out on a cross-country journey in order to attend ‘Peepsfest,’ an annual brand celebration in Pennsylvania.” Back in 2014, someone was working on “Peeps: The Movie, but for whatever reason, it never came to be. That one was different.  It was about a Peep being misplaced from a diorama contest . . . and having to make its way through the various fantasy lands to get back. There’s no timetable for the new movie yet. 

Remember that campaign to make LEVAR BURTON from “Reading Rainbow” the next permanent host of “Jeopardy!”?  Well, it’s picking up steam. Back in November, some fans started an online petition to shine the light on him.  It had 50,000 signatures back then, and LeVar made it clear that he’d be down to do it. Well, it’s going viral again . . . and now it’s surpassed 150,000 signatures. LeVar shared another link to the petition on social media, and said, quote, “[I’m] leaving this here in the event the powers that be are listening . . . How would he do as a host?  Here’s a clip of LeVar hosting a Star Trek trivia game between Sir Patrick Stewart and Pete Buttigieg on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.)

It’s getting to the point where the “surprise” death of a TV character is almost a lame cliché.  But plenty of them have been shockers.  Here’s a list of the 10 most surprising TV deaths: 

  1. Ned Stark, “Game of Thrones”.  The show became known for wiping out major characters, but this was where it all began. 
  1. Bill Hendrikson, “Big Love”. 
  1. Maria LaGuerta, “Dexter”. 
  1. Susan Ross, “Seinfeld”.  Jason Alexander revealedthat she was killed off because the actress who played her, Heidi Swedberg, was tough to work with. 
  1. Maude Flanders, “The Simpsons”. 
  1. Jackie Peyton, “Nurse Jackie”. 
  1. Jimmy Darmody and Nucky Thompson, “Boardwalk Empire”. 
  1. Zoe Barnes, “House of Cards”. 
  1. Christopher Moltisanti, “The Sopranos”. 
  1. Roseanne Conner, “Roseanne”/ “The Conners”.  This death brought to you by Ambien 

Remember that reunion tour DARIUS RUCKER did with Hootie & the Blowfish a couple of years ago?  He was asked if they’re planning to do another

Somebody re-imagined what “The Simpsons” would be like if it were a British show.  It’s definitely darker.

The Blues look to end their 4 games losing streak as they take on the Golden Knights and look to bounce back from that horrific game on Monday.  The Blues lost to the Knights 6-1 on Monday.  Colton Parayko did return to action but, it didn’t really do much.  Tonights puck drop is scheduled for 8PM.

The Cardinals picked up their second win in a row as they beat the Marlins 4-2 last night.  Dylan Carlson hit his 2nd homer of the year in the win.  Paul DeJong and Yadier Molina also had RBI in the game.  Ryan Helsley got the win.  This afternoon the two teams meet again.  Jack Flaherty gets the 3:10PM first pitch start.

San Diego Padres star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. has been placed on the 10-day injured list but will not need surgery after the latest injury to his troublesome left shoulder. Tatis suffered the injury on a hard swing Monday. The Padres on Monday said Tatis had suffered a shoulder subluxation, which is a partial dislocation of the joint. On Tuesday -further exams showed a slight labrum tear. He said the injury is “nonsurgical.” The Padres hope Tatis can return as quickly as 10 days.

Two of the 22 women who have filed lawsuits against Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson alleging sexual assault and inappropriate behavior came forward publicly during a news conference Tuesday. Ashley Solis and Lauren Baxley both made statements yesterday. Solis said: “I got into massage therapy to heal people, to heal their minds and bodies. To bring peace to their souls. Deshaun Watson has robbed me of that. People say that I’m doing this just for money. That is false. I come forward now so that Deshaun Watson does not assault another woman.”  The Texans also put out a statement that read: “While we await the conclusion of these investigations, we express our strong stance against any form of sexual assault. Our family and the entire Houston Texans organization are deeply troubled by any form of abuse and we condemn this type of behavior.”

The NCAA used the single-site concept for its marquis championship out of necessity. Now it could become part of the tournament’s future. A day after crowning a national champion for the first time since 2019, NCAA reps told reporters that the successful men’s college basketball tournament held primarily in Indianapolis and exclusively in Indiana could create a late-round model for future tourneys. The said that they wouldn’t think all 68-teams would be a good fit for a single city tourney….“However, once you get down to a fewer amount of teams, say the Sweet 16 and on, having teams in the same location may provide some opportunities the membership, coaches and all would want to consider for the future.”

The State Department said Tuesday the Biden administration is consulting with allies about a joint approach to China and its human rights record, including how to handle the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics. The department initially suggested an Olympic boycott to protest China’s rights abuses was among the possibilities, but a senior official said later that a boycott has not yet been discussed. The official said the U.S. position on the 2022 Games had not changed but that the administration is in frequent contact with allies and partners about their common concerns about China.

Tiger Woods won’t be on the course at Augusta National when the 2021 Masters begins on Thursday, but he will still be honored before the tournament takes place. Woods’s seat will be left open at the annual Masters champions dinner on Tuesday night. Woods hosted the champions dinner before the 2020 Masters after winning his most recent green jacket in 2019. Woods will not attend the 2021 Masters after he was hospitalized in February following a single-vehicle accident in Los Angeles. Woods suffered significant orthopedic injuries which required emergency surgery, and he also suffered “trauma to the muscle and soft tissue of the leg.” The 15-time major champion left the hospital on March 16 before returning to his home in South Florida.

Los Angeles Angels reliever Ty Buttrey has retired from baseball, saying he’s lost his affection for the game. “I just wanted to prove everyone wrong. As time went on baseball became more of a business and less of a game. I couldn’t help but notice my love and passion for this game started to diminish. I always thought baseball was a cool job.” The right-hander was one of the key pieces of the Angels’ bullpen the past three seasons, but he struggled with control problems during spring training and was optioned to the team’s alternate training site. His 115 appearances were fourth on the team among pitchers, and he was 8-11 with a 4.30 ERA.
