Felicity Jones In Talks For Lead Role In New Star Wars Feature

AARP 14th Annual "Movies For Grownups" Awards Gala

Felicity Jones must feel outta this world good about THIS news!

The Best Actress Oscar nominee is in talks to star in a standalone Star Wars film, according to The Hollywood Reporter, beating out a bunch of other AWESOME stars, including Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany and Rooney Mara.

According to People, Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) is set to direct the movie, while Chris Weitz was hired just last week to write the script. The About a Boy scribe replaces Gary Whitta, who penned the first draft.

Disney is currently developing two spinoff films: one focusing on a young Han Solo, and the other on Boba Fett. Jones would be in the Solo flick, though there is no word on who Jones would play or what the story is,  though it does have a release date: Dec. 16, 2016.

So…not a lot of info. Kinda weird to see a movie be made this way- usually you start with like, a script right? And not a release date?

Best Buds Melanie Griffith and Eva Longoria?

Eva Longoria & Melanie Griffith Hang Out In Beverly Hills

Who knew these two were buddies?

Actresses Eva Longoria and Melanie Griffith stop to hug after palling around together in Beverly Hills, yesterday. Eva & Melanie did some light shopping at Maxfield after enjoying lunch at Gracias Madre, and Melanie totally rocked some crazy cool leggings, while she was at it.

What do you think these two talked about? Hopefully not Fifty Shades of Grey, starring Melanie’s kid, Dakota Johnson

Annalynn McCord Is Dating 47 Year Old Ex-Laker?

Stars Attend CNN Heros Tribute

AnnaLynn McCord sure does like them silver foxes…

The 27 uear old 90210 alum showed off her new boyfriend, retired Lakers star Rick Fox, at the Hennessy V.S Super Bowl lounge at the W Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Thursday night. And let me tell you- the age difference is noticeable.

Still, I guess people thought it was cute? (It IS Arizona, after all):

“As soon as she arrived they were together for the rest of the evening. They were really cute, holding hands, and even while fans asked Rick to take pics he held her hand while he took pics with them.”

Apparently, the actress was overheard calling 45 year old Rick her “boyfriend,” so the thing’s official.  What do you think? Is this a gross cradle robbing or do you think these two could actually be cute?

Amy Poehler Receives Harvard “Hasty Pudding” Award!

Amy Poehler gave up her first class seat to a mom in coach

Amy Poehler may have been a BU alum, but she’ll take recognition from Harvard!

The comedian was celebrated in song, dance and an uproarious roast on Thursday as the recipient of the 2015 Hasty Pudding Award from the Hasty Pudding Theatricals at Harvard University. People reports:

“I’d like to thank you, Hasty Pudding, for reminding me how hard it is to write funny jokes,” Poehler, 43, deadpanned at the ceremony, where presenters poked fun at the Parks and Recreation star for never having won an Emmy Award, despite being nominated more than a dozen times.

“When I was growing up in Burlington [a Boston suburb], Harvard University used to be a group of buildings we threw rocks at on our way to a real job. And as I drove by and gave the middle finger to this place, I never knew that you guys would be giving me all this s—.”

Prior to the roast, where she donned a Boston College (her alma mater) cap as she rapped and feigned a romantic encounter with a Kim Jong-un lookalike, the 2015 Golden Globes co-host was paraded around the streets of Cambridge, Massachusetts, in a Bentley convertible.

Surrounded by members of Harvard’s prominent theater group, all of whom were dressed in drag, Poehler smiled and laughed as many of the hundreds of fans who lined the parade route tried to get her attention. One threw a stuffed animal from a third-floor apartment window, another handed her a note asking her to meet him for coffee, and one even threw a condom into the car – which elicited an impromptu chant from Poehler’s newfound theater friends of, “We love safe sex,” altering it from the crowd’s “We love Amy” chant.

Chris Pratt is set to receive the esteemed Hasty Pudding Man of the Year award on Feb. 6…which makes this year’s Hasty Puddings very Parks & Rec centric! Congrats, Amy. Go Pats, get to the yahhhhd and we LOVE them apples!
