Happy Labor Day, folks. Here’s a holiday Pajiba Love for those of you looking to kill a few minutes during the weekend.
Sarah gets it. Pennywise is not hot. Whether Bill Skarsgard is, however, is still up for debate (at least for me). (Lainey)
No offense, but Mia Goth looks like the real-life bride of Pennywise. (Celebitchy)
There’s a teaser trailer out for The Conners — it’s just a shot of the Conners’ couch and a snippet of Carly Simon’s “Anticipation.” Not much to it, really. (Uproxx)
Bishop Charles Ellis III has apologized for groping Ariana Grande at Aretha’s funeral, which was super weird and not OK. (Dlisted)
But Mike Colter?! Dude! DUDE. WTF?
Emma Stone’s dress here is glam AF. (GFY)
Remember when Miramax pulled Johnny Depp’s Biggie film, City of Lies? Now they’re being sued for refusing to distribute the film. (/Film)
Fox News pulled some total fucking bullshit with this condescending POS piece about Cosby Show actor Geoffrey Owens, because he DARES to make a living by working at Trader Joe’s. F—k off, Fox News. (Wonkette)
Ahead of Labor Day weekend, Fox News attempted to scandalize an actor for having a day job. That's not news. It's a reality, not just for actors but for artists in every field. It's called a "survival job" b/c having a cool career doesn't always pay your rent. No shame there.— Kristy Puchko (@KristyPuchko) September 2, 2018
Here’s a more realistic view of whether Beto O’Rourke can beat Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race, but the short answer is: He may not be the favorite, but he has a shot. (538)
The National Anthem/NFL debate is apparently never going to end, but one GOP official has been forced to resign after she referred to NFL players as “baboons” on Facebook. (The Root)
Nope. This is absolutely not funny. (Jezebel)
Huh. Of all the horrible, awful fan communities, apparently, fans of Elon Musk are the worst. (The Mary Sue)
William H. Macy, meanwhile, is super proud and happy for Emmy Rossum, as she departs Shameless. (Vulture)
Nicole is getting rave reviews for a repulsive performance in Destroyer. (Film Experience)
Megan Mullally says this is her in a scene of 1985’s About Last Night with Rob Lowe, but that doesn’t look like Megan Mullally at all. (LG)
Garner continues to be the best of people.
Lumenatrix went outside her comfort zone with The Seas by Samantha Hunt. She would describe it as more of a modern epic poem than modern fairy tale. "It almost reminds me of Beowulf or The Odyssey in structure, only the hero is a nineteen-year-old girl and the epic adventure is to find her way to rescuing this sad, broken man…" Which books have rewarded you for going outside your usual kind of read? (Cannonball Read 10)
Today in Rape Culture… remember this headline the next time someone claims “ya’ll are going too far to support sexual assault victims” - there are honestly no consequences for these men that are lasting. None. pic.twitter.com/ezlZa1we1S— LeslieMac (@LeslieMac) September 2, 2018
Mike Redmond is back with another look at the week in gossip — this is the celebrity gossip equivalent of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee with fewer C-bombs (for better or worse). (Medium)
A fantastic longtime reader, Molly S. is producing a fundraiser for RAICES Texas (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services) out in Los Angeles. She’s putting on a live-read of the Goonies script, and check out this killer cast:
Marc Evan Jackson as the Narrator
Brittany Snow as Andy
Eliza Coupe as Stef
Joe Lo Truglio as Francis Fratelli
Noel Wells as Mikey
Nicole Byer as Chunk
Gina Rodriguez as Mouth
Joel Kim Booster as Data
and Haley Joel Osment as Sloth
If I lived in Los Angeles, I would be there in a second. I mean, that cast could not be more Pajiba-friendly, and the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services — who receives every cent of the proceeds — could not be a more Pajiba-friendly charity. It’s on September 22nd, and you can buy tickets here.
Finally, if you’re one of the 48 percent of American households who have TV One, please check out my buddy (and former Pajiba writer) Orlando Bishop’s TV movie tonight at 7 p.m. We are super stoked for his success, and hopefully, this will lead to much more.
#DINNERFORTWO premieres tonight on @tvonetv at 7/6c. Set your DVR NOW if you gonna be at the cookout 😂.— Mack. (@MACKWILDS) September 2, 2018
