Despite reports to the contrary, Lucasfilm will not be recasting Cara Dune after firing Gina Carano from The Mandalorian and its spinoffs. Christ, they canceled her action figures, which should’ve been a huge sign that Cara Dune ain’t coming back. Anyway, The Hollywood Reporter has a new feature on what went down. Carano went from having Lucasfilm ready to pony up for her own series to shit-posting her way out of a job and an agent. (THR)

Olivia Wilde wrote a weird, gushing Instagram post about Harry Styles doing the bare minimum requirements of his job. (Lainey Gossip)

Salma Hayek doesn’t care if you think she married her husband for money. (Dlisted)

To the surprise of no one, Amy Cooper, the white lady who called the cops on an innocent Black man in Central Park just had her charges dropped. Of course. (The Root)

Death to the inspirational news story. (New Republic)

John Woo’s Broken Arrow is the mindless ’90s action movie you can watch right now (on Hulu!), and Roxana wrote for Crooked Marquee about Christian Slater’s omnipresence in the 1980s and 1990s, his lingering bad boy appeal, and the strange delight of watching him play the straight man to John Travolta’s unhinged villain.

Check this out: I like Marvel and think Martin Scorsese has a valid as hell point about streaming services diluting films. It’s possible to do both, Film Twitter! (Uproxx)

ElCicco enjoyed P. Djéli Clark’s award-winning The Black God’s Drums so much that she hopes that he will return to his magical New Orleans setting when he’s done with his 1920’s Cairo stories. "The action takes place in New Orleans, 1884, and while the city has many characteristics we would recognize, it is not the New Orleans of our historical timeline." Have you read any of Clark’s books yet? (Cannonball Read 13)
