Everyone loves to overlook the seedy side of Scientology when Tom Cruise is beating Marvel with his fighter jet movie that’s a million times more of a recruitment ad than anything Kevin Feige has ever signed off on. But in the real world that Film Twitter should visit some time, Scientologists like Danny Masterson are ducking rape charges thanks to the church’s alleged connections to the LAPD and its deep coffers. The former That ’70s Show star scored a mistrial in his rape trial today. His lawyers had been requesting one from the jump, and they got what they wanted thanks to a hung jury. A retrial is set for March, but whether that actually happens is up in the air. (LA Times)

I wish I was joking, but it’s hilarious how close they are to getting it. (Celebitchy)

Denise Gough has officially confirmed rumors that Maarva’s final line in Andor was originally “F*ck the Empire,” which was changed for obvious reasons, and frankly, for the best. The season finale was rock goddamn solid that didn’t need the cheap thrill of Star Wars saying “f*ck.” And it’s one of my favorite words! (Empire)
