Harry Shum Jr. Named Ambassador for the 2019 SAG Awards

Harry Shum Jr. Named Ambassador for the 2019 SAG Awards
Make way for the 2019 SAG Awards' new ambassador! Harry Shum Jr. has claimed the coveted spot this year—and deservedly so, as he's appeared on both the big and small screens. Most notably, perhaps, is his role as Magnus Bane on Freeform's Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, which earned him the Male TV Star of 2018 award at the E! People's Choice Awards last month. Shum, of course, also starred as Charlie Wu in Warner Bros.' Crazy Rich Asians. And let's not forget he is a former SAG Award winner (Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series) for his work on Glee. The actor, who last month announced that he and wife Shelby Robara are having a baby girl, can add this new title to...

If Beale Street Could Talk: Here's the Powerful Story Behind the Adaptation
Barry Jenkins left us in awe with his lush, nuanced storytelling in 2016's Moonlight, and now, he's poised to do it again with the drama If Beale Street Could Talk. Due in theaters on Dec. 25, it's already a critical darling with three Golden Globe nominations to its name - and award season has barely begun.

In his latest project, Jenkins adapts James Baldwin's book of the same name, the title of which alludes to W.C. Handy's "Beale Street Blues." It pays homage to the Memphis street that became a bustling cultural spot for black artists and activists in the 20th century. Baldwin grounds his novel in 1970s Harlem, but there's a timelessness to it that resonates with the buildup to the civil rights movements and the current Black Lives Matter movement. And while it respects context, the book also develops its characters' internal lives with a tragic story that'll haunt you.

On Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Beautiful Boy actor, 56, revealed that he was recently hit by a car as he rode his bike. The incident only got stranger when it turned out that the woman behind the wheel was a fan of his.

Constance Wu's Next Rom-Com Is About a Woman With a "Double Pregnancy" - Yes, That's a Thing

Constance Wu's Next Rom-Com Is About a Woman With a
Rom-com enthusiasts, bow down to your new queen: Constance Wu.

After starring in this Summer's biggest romantic hit, Crazy Rich Asians, the Fresh Off the Boat actress is reportedly doubling down on the genre, according to new rumors about her next film role. In an as-yet-unnamed romantic comedy directed by Glow star Kimmy Gatewood and executive produced by Elizabeth Banks, Wu would play a "charmingly chaotic woman who has to get her life together when she becomes pregnant with two babies from two different men."

Um, say what now?!

Yes, apparently Wu's character, if she does sign onto the film, will live out one of my actual nightmares when she endures a double pregnancy (though I'm sure her journey will be far less traumatizing). Savion Einstein wrote the screenplay about this case of "superfecundation," which is apparently a very, very rare condition that could, hypothetically, result in such a scenario.

Stephen Curry Doesn't Believe the Moon Landings Actually Happened
Stephen Curry may be a basketball pro, but space is another story.  During an interview on The Ringer's Winging It podcast, the 30-year-old famed Golden State Warriors point guard unexpectedly questioned our history of landing on the moon. Joined by hosts Vince Carter, Kent Bazemore and Annie Finberg and fellow guest Andre Iguodala, the group was chatting about how we know what kind of sounds dinosaurs made before Curry asked, "We ever been to the moon?" After some voices responded "Nope," Curry continued, "They're gonna come get us. I don't think so either." (Listen to the bite at 46:45.) Naturally, the comments did not go unnoticed...

I Could Watch Milo Ventimiglia Grab a Handful of Guacamole on a Loop and Never Stop Laughing
You never know what to expect when you play a game on The Tonight Show. That's what Jennifer Lopez and Milo Ventimiglia learned while promoting their film Second Act on Tuesday night. Jennifer first joined Jimmy for a few rounds of "Can You Feel It?," a game where each person had to identify an object hidden in a box. While J Lo and Jimmy had their fair share of dramatic reactions to the secret items (the "Dinero" singer thoroughly dismantled a tiny snowman), things took an even funnier turn when Milo joins in.

The This Is Us actor plays J Lo's husband in their film, so it's only natural he showed up to lend her emotional support amidst this guessing game. During the last round, he vowed to go "all in" and rapidly stuck his hand into a bowl of guacamole, alongside Jimmy and Jennifer. While those two quickly realized what they'd touched,

Brace Yourself! It Sounds Like Miley Cyrus Will Be in an Episode of Black Mirror
If you're eagerly awaiting the release of Black Mirror's fifth season, we have an exciting detail to tie you over as the anticipation builds. It sounds like Miley Cyrus will be starring in an upcoming episode of the Netflix series, according to her sister Brandi Cyrus.

Last month, rumors began circling about the 26-year-old singer's unexpected appearance on the show after she was spotted filming in South Africa. Brandi revealed that she accompanied Miley on this trip during the Dec. 11 episode of Your Favorite Thing Podcast With Wells and Brandi and shared details about her sister's experience.

Brandi never mentioned the show by name, but she did confirm that Miley filmed an episode alongside another Netflix star, Ozark's Marc Menchaca. It's no surprise that specifics about a potential Miley appearance are so hard to come by since the creators of Black Mirror are famously secretive about the arc of the show.
