This is a really excellent Pop Culture Fix — let’s just dive in!
+ I can’t believe the internet buried the most important piece of information about this new Halle Berry movie it was going berserk over yesterday! This is why we need independent queer media! So, Halle Berry talked to EW about her directorial debut in her new film, Bruised, a story centering a disgraced MMA fighter (named Jackie Justice!) looking for one last chance. And here, on casting:
and a statuesque British stage actress named Sheila Atim as Bobbi “Buddhakan” Berroa, the reluctant trainer who also becomes her love interest.
Carmen has already called the review, if she makes it through the movie alive!
+ Good Trouble star Sherry Cola joins Adele Lim’s R-rated comedy: Cola will play one of the four leads, “As the women at the center of the film travel through the region, their experience becomes one of bonding, friendship, belonging and no-holds-barred wild debauchery that reveals the universal truth of what it means to know and love who you are.”
+ Speaking of! Here’s a sneak peek at tonight’s Good Trouble.
+ Beanie Feldstein will star in the Broadway revival of Funny Girl. And I just gotta:
God. I will miss you forever, Naya.
