+ Kristen Stewart’s new Charlie’s Angels, a thing I have refused to believe is real until someone provided photographic evidence, has made a strong case for its existence this week by releasing some stills. According to Entertainment Weekly, “[Charlie’s] expanded roster includes the crew at the center of Elizabeth Banks’ story: Sabina Wilson (Kristen Stewart), the hard-partying, highly skilled wild card; Jane Kano (Ella Balinska), the ex-MI6 muscle of the group; and Elena Houghlin (Aladdin’s Naomi Scott), the MIT-trained scientist who, Banks says, serves as ‘the heart of the movie.'” Also if Kristen Stewart isn’t gay in this film WHAT’S THE POINT.
+ You know GBBO‘s Prue Leith? She writes an epic novel series about chefs, I guess?

(I need to warn you: If you click on that link, about 25 autoplay videos of Paul Hollywood are going to start blaring at you. Maybe he even reaches through the screen and tries to give you a handshake if you leave the tab open long enough, I don’t know, but I wouldn’t risk it.)
+ Kate McKinnon will star and executive produce the new Hulu series The Dropout, about the life of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes.
