Well-Known Franchise Viagra, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, To Inject Himself Into The Next Terminator Film

First of all, they're making a Terminator 5?!?! According to recent reports, the film will begin filming in early 2014 and erstwhile California Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, will have a role to play. But according to the rumors circulating today, Schwarzenegger may not be the alpha Terminator in the upcoming flick. And, really, no wonder. The man is beyond expendable.

According to the rumor mill, the lead role may have landed squarely in the lap of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. If you've been paying attention at all to the goings on of the action genre this year, you'd know that any flagging series would be lucky to have The Rock on board. G.I. Joe Retaliation director Jon M. Chu went so far as to refer to The Rock as "franchise Viagra." Saying, "He comes in and he elevates everything, not just physically, but energy-wise." And, really, Terminator 5 could do worse. I may cock a skeptical People's Eyebrow at the very idea of the franchise continuing at this point, but if we must go another round with Skynet, the Connors and some iteration of the T-800, we can at least do so while basking in the warmth of Johnson's signature charm and elaborate musculature.

My one hope is that the introduction of The Rock ushers in Schwarzenegger's true retirement. After all, we stalwart fans have been awaiting this particular torch pass for over a decade.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
