Kumail Nanjiani & Friends Cast the Next 'Batman' Movie (and Other Miscellanea)
COME THROUGH! RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Violet Chachki is doing Mama Ru proud, going full supermodel for the lingerie company Playful Promises. (Mic)
Singer/actress/activist Zendaya is turning producer so she can star in a biopic about Anita Hemmings, the first Black woman to graduate from Vassar college, and who did so by ducking the institution’s racist bullshit by passing as white. The turn-of-the-20th-century thriller called A White Lie will be adapted from Karin Tanabe’s historical fiction novel The Gilded Years. (Black Film)
