Things We Saw Today: A Nancy Meyers Movie With Diversity?
What if The Intern starred Jason Mitchell, not De Niro?
What happens when you actually add a person of color to a Nancy Meyers (The Intern, Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated) movie? Funny Or Die wonders in its latest video starring Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton).
- On the topic of representation, Michael B. Jordan has shared a letter with Essense in which he talks about why he believes #BlackLivesMatter. This is in response to a recent video in which he said #AllLivesMatter.
- Oh, and it looks like the lady team behind Agent Carter is working on a new show! And this one is a drama about a Cuban-American fam and from a female writer! (via Deadline)
Ever wanted to use your old N64 controller for more IRL pursuits? Well, thanks to YouTuber Grant Thompson (The King of Random), you can turn that controller into a remote for a rocket. Warning: Don’t watch if you can’t stand the thought of your childhood actually being ripped apart in front of you (and not in the Dudes Against Girl Ghostbusters way). (via lifehacker)
- Speaking of busted childhoods, can we talk about the fact that Sean Astin is saying Goonies 2 is 100 per cent happening? I love The Goonies as much as Sloth loves Chunk, but I also kinda like how it ended and don’t know if I need to see a sequel. How about a new movie about kids adventuring instead?
Finally, I leave you with amazing Ninja Turtles meets Pokémon shirt. It’s from Fashionably Geek and I want one and a pizza right now.
