Looks Like America’s Favorite(?) Plastic May Have Landed The Role Of Barbie

Anne Hathaway, Armie Hammer and Rob Delaney during an appearance on CBS's 'The Late Late Show with James Corden.'

Thespian Club Barbie Anne Hathaway must have taken that jeer to heart over the years, because the Hollywood Reporter is saying Anne is in talks to take over for Amy Schumer in the live-action Barbie movie. I can already imagine Anne renting a pink convertible from the Hertz at LAX, donning one of Kim Zolciak’s wigs and driving over to producer Amy Pascal’s house to perform Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” on her front lawn, refusing to leave until she gets the part. “I was born for this! America already thinks I’m a stiff!!! Did you know I have an OSCARRR?!”

Amy Schumer’s Barbie was supposed to be all about feminism and identity. Amy’s woke Barb was to suddenly realize she didn’t fit in at the dollhouse, and make a beeline to the real world, because there are obviously no fake, plastic people on these shores! Clearly, Barbie wasn’t going to turn on E! or pass a newsstand while on her enlightened trip to reality.

Sony wouldn’t comment on negotiations, but the movie is still targeted for release next summer, which means Anne’s next chance for an Oscar has to get moving pronto! Amy had to drop out because this thing sounds like a fucking disaster she had scheduling conflicts. Now that she’s just sitting around certainly NOT sticking pins into an Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins voodoo doll, Anne has all the time in the world!

There Are Multiple Scientific Reasons This Image is Infuriating, List Your Favorite Below

Preacher on AMC at 9:00pm ET. Featuring our very own Pajiba 10 winner, Ruth Negga! And some other people too, but we know who’s the star here, right?

Will on TNT at 9:00pm ET.

Diana: Our Mother, Her Life and Legacy on HBO at 10:00pm ET. A lot of this seems to have been covered in interview released prior to the special. I am not surprised that Harry and William are still dealing with the loss of their mother. I am still a little creeped out that SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE seem heavily invested in knowing exactly what’s going on with that and them.

Midnight, Texas on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. The title made me think of making a joke about how this is the televised version of «Welcome to Nightvale» and then I actually looked up a synopsis and it’s… basically a more boring version of «Welcome to Nightvale» crossed with True Blood. It’s based on a book series of the same name by Charlaine Harris who also wrote the vampire novels that True Blood was based on and the character descriptions feature both occupations and supernatural entity status. So, at least to start out with, you’re going to have a psychic, a witch, and a vampire. I’m sure some other critters will show up eventually. Dylan Bruce is starring in this, who I remember from Orphan Black as Paul who was mostly blandly handsome and not a whole lot else.

People of Earth on TBS at 10:30pm ET. Second season premiere.

Try Picking Your Favorite Moment From the Royal Family’s Tour of Germany

The British royal family appears to be having a blast on their tour of Poland and Germany this week. On Wednesday, Prince William and Kate Middleton touched down in Berlin with their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, which immediately resulted in a handful of precious moments. While Prince George flashed his signature unimpressed face for the cameras, Princess Charlotte, who gave her first diplomatic handshake, was preoccupied with her bouquet of flowers.

After putting their little tots down, the royal pair visited the Brandenburg Gate and the Holocaust Memorial before heading over to the Strassenkinder, a charity which supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, where they offered warm hugs to a group of children. And they didn’t stop there. Later in evening, the couple met with President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at the Bellevue Palace Gardens, where they held a garden party complete with champagne in honor of Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday.

On Thursday, the red carpet was rolled out for the royal pair as they visited the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg before making pretzels during a tour of a traditional German market in the Central Square. Later in the day, the two enjoyed a cold beer after a rowing race against the twinned towns of Cambridge and Heidelberg before getting dolled up at Berlin’s Clärchens Ballhaus dance hall. The next day, the couple boarded a train for Hamburg as they visited the Maritime Museum and the Elbphilharmonie concert hall.

Peter Dinklage’s Role as Husband Might Be Our Favorite — Sorry, Tyrion Lannister

Peter Dinklage is well-known for his role on Game of Thrones, but in real life, he’s a loving husband and father. In 2005, the actor married theater director Erica Schmidt, and they welcomed their first child, a daughter whose name has not yet been revealed, in 2011. While the two are usually pretty reserved about their romance (and their family life), they have been known to show sweet PDA from time to time on the red carpet. Whether they’re giving each other heart eyes at the Game of Thrones premiere or they’re supporting each other at the Emmy Awards, it’s clear these two have a lot of love for each other. As they get ready to welcome their second child, see some of their best appearances over the years.

Another Entry in My Favorite TV Screenshot Genre: We’re All Reacting to the Same Thing Differently

America’s Got Talent on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

Pretty Little Liars on Freeform at 8:00pm ET. Two-hour series finale. Was A ever really dead? Has that already been settled? Did her friends ever actually attend enough classes to graduate high school? Will any teachers be prosecuted for flagrant sexual misconduct with students? I assume none of these questions will be answered tonight or ever. I just have a vague sense that they should be.

iZombie on The CW at 9:00pm ET. Third season finale.

World of Dance on NBC at 10:00pm ET. I find this an awfully grand title for a reality series about dancing, but I suppose that is Jennifer Lopez’s style.

Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Bravo at 11:15pm ET. The guests tonight are Scott Wolf and Neve Campbell so any Party of Five fans should definitely tune in. And then wonder why you’d still consider yourself a «fan» of a show that ended 17 years ago.

5 of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Favorite Vacation Spots

Image Source: Getty / Samir Hussein

From safari drives deep in the heart of Africa and European sunshine breaks to raucous ski trips and declarations of love in the Indian Ocean, Prince William and Kate Middleton have had some pretty memorable vacations over the course of their 14-year relationship! Ever since they were spotted kissing on the ski slopes of the Swiss Alps in 2004, they have tended to go away twice a year together, heading once to the sun and once to the snow. However, there has been a fair bit of switching things up over the past few years that reflects their changing lives. These days, the couple makes a point of going away for a reboot break ahead of every royal tour they undertake, and times have certainly changed since the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The Alps

Klosters in Switzerland has always been Prince Charles’s favorite ski resort, so it’s no surprise it was William’s choice too for many years. He and Kate have vacationed in the picturesque chocolate-box town a handful of times with Charles and other family members, as well as with their own friends. It was the backdrop for that first snowy kiss and also where Prince Charles took them as part of a small group ahead of his wedding. In recent years, though, William and Kate have moved on from the old-school resort and mostly favored buzzier destinations in the French Alps. They have been to both Méribel — a Middleton favorite and the location of Pippa’s bachelorette trip — and Courcheval, which is where they took Prince George and Princess Charlotte last year. Additionally, William headed to the Swiss resort of Verbier earlier this year for his infamous boys’ trip.

Indian Ocean

In the first flush of romance, William and Kate vacationed on the rustic island of Rodrigues, just off the mainland of Mauritius. William had been there on his gap year working on an environmental project and returned with Kate and some friends when they were at university. He and Kate went back to that part of the world in 2007 when they stayed at the Desroches Island Resort in the Seychelles, which is where they cemented their relationship after their brief breakup. When they returned for their honeymoon in 2011, they stayed on North Island with their own private chef and spent time snorkeling. In 2014, they chose the Maldives ahead of their tour of Australia and New Zealand. The pair left Prince George at home with Kate’s parents and had a week together at the Cheval Blanc Randheli Hotel.

Mustique

The ultraluxe Caribbean island has been a Middleton family favorite for years, and William and Kate vacationed there for the first time together in Villa Hibiscus, where they played beach games and went for drinks at the Firefly Hotel. Kate’s vacation tipple of choice? A piña colada! The couple has also stayed in the spacious Villa Rocina, but most of the time they — along with Kate’s family — have stayed in Villa Aurora, which features individual little cottages around a central pool. While there, they usually go scuba diving, play tennis, and have drinks at The Cotton House Hotel. However, since Princess Charlotte was born, they have stayed a little closer to home.

France

It seems that a quick one-hour plane journey is now preferable over lengthy flights to the Caribbean once you have two little ones in tow. Last year, instead of joining Kate’s family in Mustique as they have in the past, William and Kate took George and Charlotte to France for a week in the sun. Ahead of their tour of Canada, the family of four spent some time at the Hotel du Palais in Biarritz on the French coast before staying with friends and family nearby. William and Kate had also vacationed in France ahead of their tour of Asia in 2012. On this occasion, they stayed in the chateau belonging to David Linley, the son of William’s great-aunt Princess Margaret, but what was meant to be a relaxing mini break quickly snowballed into a lengthy court case after topless pictures of Kate were taken.

Kenya

The country will forever be associated with the couple after they got engaged there in 2010, although they have actually visited twice. The Summer they finished university was the first time William took his then-girlfriend to experience the country which had captured his heart as a teenager. They stayed with William’s friends the Craigs before traveling on to the Mukogodo Hills to stay in the Il N’gwesi Lodge, enjoying safari drives and al fresco dinners during their visit. When they returned in 2010, they again stayed with the Craigs before William whisked Kate to the Rutundu Log Cabin on the slopes of Mount Kenya. There, they went fishing for rainbow trout, cooked for themselves, and enjoyed log fires and evenings lit by hurricane lanterns.
