NBC is shaking things up over at The Voice. For the first time in the singing competition’s history, two women will be occupying the red swivel seats. If Christina Aguilera doesn’t break the girl curse this season and eke out a win, at least the ladies have a 50/50 shot next year.

Clearly, Margot Robbie enjoyed her time playing a villain in Suicide Squad. She’ll once again tap into her dark side for I, Tonya. As evil as Harley Quinn is though, Joker’s girlfriend has nothing on Tonya Harding.

In a bit of a casting stretch, Robbie has signed on to play one of the most vilified sports figures in history. Tonya Harding wishes she looked as stunning as the 25-year-old Aussie actress.

For those who’ve never heard of Harding, she was a two-time Olympian and the first American woman to land a Triple Axel in competition. It’s her antics outside the rink though, that made her infamous.

Who doesn’t love MacGyver? He could diffuse a bomb with just a paperclip or create a smoke distraction using everyday kitchen supplies.

I can’t wait to see what the new MacGyver can fashion with today’s technology.
