Time magazine’s annual 100 Most Influential People list celebrates pioneers, titans, artists, leaders, innovators and icons and more. Each person to make the cut is the subject of a short essay written by another notable public figure. In Leonardo DiCaprio’s case, it’s from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

“Leo’s talent is limitless, but his secret has always been pretty simple: he’s real. He does his homework. He knows what he’s talking about. That’s how he takes himself back in time 200 years to create an Oscar-winning, bear-brawling, powerhouse performance in The Revenant.” – John Kerry is the U.S. Secretary of State

Nicki Minaj, Priyanka Chopra, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, Hamilton maestro Lin-Manuel Miranda and International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde all received their own separate covers for the 2016 class.

Other notable names to make the cut this year include Adele, Ronda Rousey, Taraji P. Henson, Caitlyn Jenner, Aziz Ansari, Hillary Clinton, Karlie Kloss, Jordan Spieth, Ariana Grande and Melissa McCarthy to name a few. Check out below all the other covers which were snapped by photographer Ben Hassett.

Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel and plenty others are returning for Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival. In fact, producers booked all the major players with exception to two. Edward Herrmann and Melissa McCarthy being them.

In the former’s case, he passed away in 2014, so unless he’s Jesus, that’s not going to happen. Just until this week, it looked like McCarthy would be the sole holdout. Looks can be deceiving. The 45-year-old, much to the delight of fans, revealed she will, in fact, head to Stars Hollow once again. She broke the news on The Ellen Show.

“It is really exciting. There has been something that I have been asked about so, so many times and it hasn’t worked out…And there was a whole thing. And then I was gonna be out of the country and blah, blah, blah. And literally about an hour and half ago we figured out that I’m gonna go back and do it and I am so excited. And they are gonna be amazing,” Melissa told Ellen

The news comes as a bit of a surprise given that Amy Sherman-Palladino just a few days ago stated Melissa most likely couldn’t participate in the new episodes. I’m so curious what wheeling and dealing transpired to make it happen. Watch the video announcement below.

Ghostbusters All-Female Reboot Debuts First Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies
ghostbusters-trailer

The first trailer for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot pays homage to the original by opening up with a scene set in a library as Kristen Wiig approaches an apparition. Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd had a similar encounter in the original 1984 film.

Don’t get it twisted though. These aren’t the ghosts from the 80s. They’re meaner, bigger and dole out nastier slime. If that wasn’t enough, these supernatural spirits have the ability to possess human form.

The clip primarily focuses on the four main leads- Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Wiig. Chris Hemsworth, who plays the ladies’ secretary, only makes a brief appearance. And not shirtless to boot :( Meanwhile, the OG Ghostbusters, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, who are all set to make cameos, don’t appear at all in the trailer.

Ghostbusters slimes its way into theaters on July 15. Check out the video below.

Who you gonna call? No disrespect to Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Melissa McCarthy, but I’d rather dial Chris Hemsworth. That deep voice of his is music to my ears. Can you imagine having phone sex with him? I’d die.

The all-female Ghostbusters reboot released stills featuring the four leading ladies and for the first time, a photo of Hemsworth. The 32-year-old plays the team’s secretary and office manager which was originally played by Annie Potts. I wonder how many words per minute he can type? Get your first peek below.

Who you gonna call? Forget the OG crew. These ladies look like serious bad-asses.

Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon are ready for action with their proton packs in their character posters. If the artwork is any indication on how killer this all-female reboot will be, consider me sold.

Check out the posters below. Ghostbusters storms into theaters on July 15, 2016.

Is it me, or does every character Melissa McCarthy play kinda the same? Don’t get it twisted, I think she’s hilarious, but a little variety would be nice. But I suppose, if it ain’t broke, why bother fixing it, right?

The 45-year-old actress plays a powerful and insanely rich, but not incredibly nice woman in The Boss. She finds herself penniless after being sent to prison for insider trading. When she exits jail, she lives with her former employee played by Kristen Bell. McCarthy concocts a new scheme to regain her wealth after taking Bell’s daughter to a Girl Scouts-like meeting.

Kathy Bates, Kristen Schaal and Peter Dinklage also star in the upcoming comedy. It’s scheduled to hit theaters on April 9, 2016. Check out the amusing clip below. I LOL’d a few times. No lie. Hopefully, all the good parts aren’t featured in the movie trailer.

Being the face of the revolution against President Snow pays.

Forbes reveals that Jennifer Lawrence is the highest paid actress over the past 12 months. At a whopping $52 million, she soars above her compatriots. No doubt a good chunk of that coin comes from The Hunger Games franchise. Her lucrative endorsement deals for brands such as Dior certainly pad her bank account quite nicely as well.

Coming in at the runner-up slot is Scarlett Johansson at $35 million thanks to The Avengers and Lucy. Rounding out the Top 3 is Melissa McCarthy at $23 million.

Last year’s top dog Sandra Bullock falls to No. 15 on this year’s list, earning $8 million according to the publication. Check out below which other actresses are laughing all the way to the bank.

It turns out the dimwitted character he played on Parks and Recreation might not have been a far stretch for a young Chris Pratt. He was quite naive and extremely trusting when he first arrived in Los Angeles. If, this story is true.

The 35-year-old shares the details about his first headshots. Apparently, a random photographer SLASH stranger approached him on the streets of West Hollywood. He invited him back to his place to shoot him for free. As it turns out, it was legit and he was just a generous guy. But, can you imagine if he was a psychopath?

Melissa McCarthy was also on the Graham Norton Show and dished about her first headshots as well. She was surprised the show got their hands on them, given that she thought she had the only existing copies in her possession. Guess she was wrong. Check out both hilarious clips below.
