Good morning! I’m filling in for Lainey, so she can enjoy a much-deserved weekend of merriment with her hubby. Let’s do this thing.

Back in December, Vin Diesel was sued by a former assistant over damning allegations of sexual battery raising the questions about the future of the Fast & Furious franchise. Diesel’s lawyers have denied the allegations and claim to have proof exonerating the actor, but the situation has been quiet — until now. Diesel recently posted on Instagram that he’s already met with the writers and producers for the Fast & Furious finale, and apparently, it’s full steam ahead with Dom Toretto in the driver’s seat. Hoo boy. Bold move for Universal, Cotton, let’s see how it works for them. (The Wrap)

More of this Jon Stewart, please, and less of looking into the camera and solemnly saying that America will be fine no matter who wins the election, which was always the main issue with Stewart’s return.
