Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard Eyed for Ghostbusters Sequel

The upcoming Ghostbusters sequel from director Jason Reitman may be close to casting two of its stars: Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard and Infinity War’s Carrie Coon.

Per Variety, the two actors are still in talks with Sony for their roles, though both appear to be likely candidates. Sources tell Variety that the movie will focus on a family with a single mom played by Coon and her son played by Wolfhard. Though rumors suggested Reitman was hesitant about using a Stranger Things cast member, considering the show’s references to Ghostbusters, he and executives were reportedly “blown away” by Wolfhard’s audition.

Élan Flowers Helps Mimi Prober Keep Things Local With Floral Display and Botanical Dyeing

IT TAKES A VILLAGE: Community, or the lack thereof, is an ongoing topic of conversation, as “Vanishing New York” blogger Jeremiah Moss can attest.
But Mimi Prober, a designer who specializes in “creating modern heirlooms using antique textiles,” created her spring collection with the help of Élan Flowers.
The designer relies on local fiber farms, artisans and New York-based manufacturers to create textiles design and one-of-a-kind pieces. About a year ago en route to People’s Revolution’s Grand Street office, where she keeps a space, she started dropping by the local florist. “I got really excited because I’ve always used natural color dyes in my process. I’d always wanted to collaborate with a florist because they have a lot of waste, and flowers that they throw away, that can be used,” she said.
It just so happened that they were on board with her design philosophy and they started giving them flowers for natural dyeing. For spring, they offered her roses, hydrangeas, sunflowers, and wildflowers to use to create natural dyes for the collection. “They’re familiar with what I do. And they created this kind of beautiful glowing forest as a backdrop,” said Prober, adding that she also gave them some lace scraps which

‘Stranger Things’ Producer Says Season 2 Will Be Even Scarier

Stranger Things” producer and director Shawn Levy has offered up some hints on the future of the surprise Netflix hit that’s going to be a lot darker in Season 2. 

In fact, the new installment of the Duffer brothers’ series “makes the Demogorgon look quaint,” Levy said during a Facebook Live interview Thursday with The Hollywood Reporter. 

“I was just in the edit room with the brothers yesterday, and we were like, ‘This is definitely darker. I hope everyone’s down with this.’ Because the threats to Hawkins and to our characters are bigger, darker, oftentimes scarier,” he said.

“So, people who found Season 1 too scary for them, probably you’re going to be more scared by Season 2. But again, the best thing I can tell you is, through it all, it’s got the best heart. But it is ― cinematically and budgetarily ― it’s definitely more ambitious.”

Season 2 kicks off one year after Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) returns from the Upside Down. Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) is seemingly alive, according to the trailer that aired during the Super Bowl, and some new kind of monster is terrorizing Hawkins, Indiana. Will is also having trouble adjusting back into life after his trauma, along with Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard). 

Levy stressed that although the “Stranger Things” bosses were fascinated by the outpouring of support last summer, they aren’t going to let fans’ wishes come before the creators’ instincts. 

“We are going to do things that fans will be disappointed in, but I think they will be more satisfied by,” he said.

Like what?

“People still think Barb’s alive,” Levy explained. “You think you want that! But you wouldn’t really want that,” he said, saying that celebrities have come up to him to ask about the fate of Shannon Purser’s character. 

“No, you saw! She had a creature ― a slug-worm-snake ― coming out of her mouth. I don’t know that there’s a bounce-back from that. So, no, we are not going to cravenly service the wish list of fans.”

Season 2 premieres Oct. 31 on Netflix.

8 Things Every Broadway Fan Should Watch, Read Or See Before The Tonys

Still deciding whether to forego rent this month and see Bette Midler in “Hello, Dolly!”? Is your obsession with Ben Platt starting to verge on unhealthy? Were you put on this earth to see Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon swap roles every night in “The Little Foxes”?

Well, fear not, theater fans, because the Tony Awards are upon us, with host Kevin Spacey leading the festivities this year on CBS. The stars of stage and screen (alert: Cate Blanchett will be in attendance) will gather in New York City on Sunday night to celebrate the stellar year in theater.

This Broadway season took us everywhere, from working-class Pennsylvania in Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer-Prize-winning play “Sweat” to inside the hearts of a fractured family facing the HIV/AIDS crisis in “Falsettos.” Also, though he may not be nominated, but now is a good time as ever to thank the theater gods for casting Jake Gyllenhaal in “Sunday in the Park with George.”

So whether you’re a diehard fan or just tuning into this whole Broadway thing, it’s time to do your homework and check out some theater #content from around the internet about the shows nominated this year. 

And for those “Hamilton” fanatics, yes, the Tonys still happen when the musical isn’t nominated, but, rest assured, Lin-Manuel Miranda will be there.  

 

“Dear Evan Hansen” (Best Musical)

From the minds of “La La Land” songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, “Dear Evan Hansen” has won over audiences (and Hollywood) thanks to a career-defining performance from Ben Platt and catchy ballads that tug at the heartstrings. Watch Platt and co-star Laura Dreyfuss’ performance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” below. 

“Sweat” (Best Play)

The early favorite to pick up the award for Best Play this Sunday, Pulitzer winner “Sweat” is the most politIcally relevant of the bunch, exploring the lives of factory workers in a small Pennsylvanian city. HuffPost recently interviewed playwright Lynn Nottage about what the play says about Trump’s America.

Nottage is also working on a companion piece titled “Floyd,” which will … twist … be a comedy. 

“The Little Foxes” (Best Revival of a Play)

Laura Linney. Cynthia Nixon. Period piece. Need we say more? Set in a small town in Alabama circa 1900, both deliver tour de force performances and then switch roles on the subsequent night. They’re also close friends offstage, and brought the fun to “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” earlier this year.

“Falsettos” (Best Revival of a Musical)

We cried and then we cried some more. This musical revival about an imperfect family struggling to stay together in the wake of a divorce and a father’s coming out was a standout this season. The cast is slated to perform at the Tonys this Sunday, so read this comprehensive piece from BuzzFeed about why the show means so much to the LGBT community and how it’s more timely than ever. 

“Hello, Dolly!” (Best Revival of a Musical)

As turn-of-the-century matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi, Bette Midler has been earning rave reviews for her long-awaited musical comeback to Broadway. The glorious cast album was recently released and, trust us, your ears will immediately thank you for this musical theater goodness.

Also, the movie adaptation starring Barbra Streisand is currently streaming on Netflix, so what’s the holdup?  

“Jitney” (Best Revival of a Play)

From the mind of August Wilson, “Jitney” follows a group of drivers of unofficial and unlicensed taxi drivers ― called “jitneys” ―who transport residents of Pittsburgh Hill District in the 1970s because others refuse to do so. If you haven’t seen Wilson’s best known play “Fences,” the powerful film adaptation starring Viola Davis and Denzel Washington was released last year and also explores the experience and struggle of working class black Americans. 

“Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812” (Best Musical)

This interactive musical needs to be seen to be believed and it’s far too complicated to explain (seriously, it’s adapted from a section of War & Peace), so check out the cast, including Josh Groban, performing two songs on the “Today Show.”

“The Present” (Cate Blanchett for Best Actress)

No one plays morally complex women like Cate Blanchett, and the Oscar winner is in fine form in this surprisingly modern adaptation of an unfinished Chekhov play. Directed by the actress’ husband Andrew Upton, the standout scene features a drunk Blanchett pouring vodka all over herself, as she dances on a dinner table. Watch his interview with the cast below, and for more vodka and Blanchett, check out “Blue Jasmine.” 

The Tony Awards air at 8 p.m. June 11 on CBS.

‘Stranger Things’ Season 2 Will End With Another Cliffhanger

“Stranger Things” Season 2 is shaping up to be an Eleven out of 10.

Finn Wolfhard and Caleb McLaughlin already told HuffPost that Season 2 of the breakout Netflix series is going to be better than Season 1, and now Gaten Matarazzo is here to hype fans up even more.

The actor is teaming up with Holiday Inn for their “Summer of Smiles” event, which, among other things, involves chocolate milk happy hours at participating hotels. One of Matarazzo’s most memorable scenes from “Stranger Things” is when his character Dustin discovers a stash of chocolate pudding in school, so chocolate milk happy hours seem right up his alley. 

While casually hanging out by a pool, the actor filled us in on what to expect in Season 2. (You can watch the interview in the video above.)

Ladies, gentlemen, Demogorgons, get ready for another cliffhanger.

Matarazzo said people can look forward to “a good amount of explanation that they’ve been looking for, but also there are some new stories coming in that you’re gonna want to hear about if there is a Season 3. Also, we got another cliffhanger in there for ya, so that’s gonna be exciting.”

The actor told HuffPost that the new season is action-packed, and you’ll learn more about the Upside Down.

But we can’t help but think, “What could the cliffhanger be? And what are the explanations we’re finally going to get?”

One revelation you probably shouldn’t count on is that Dustin is one of the test subjects like Eleven. Matarazzo told us that’s the craziest “Stranger Things” theory he’s heard so far … but he’s into it.

“Who doesn’t want to be like Eleven? Eleven’s awesome,” the actor said.

“Stranger Things” Season 2 is out Oct. 31.

8 Things The Happiest Couples Do Before Bed

We live in a busy world and between work, kids, bills and other daily stressors, many couples struggle to find time to connect.

That’s why it’s so important for couples to make the most of whatever alone time they have together ― whether it’s an hour or just 10 minutes. We asked relationship experts to tell us what the happiest couples do before bed to keep their bond strong. See what they had to say below.

1. They exchange “I love yous.”

“Despite all the hassles of the day, the quirks and annoyances you experience from one another and ominous feelings about the day ahead, make the effort to let your partner know they are loved. And rather than just heave it out with your last sigh of the night, say it like you really feel it.” ― Ryan Howes, psychologist

2. They go to bed at the same time if possible.

“Too many couples go to bed at different times, leading disconnected lives in the evening after already having spent all day apart. Happy couples, however, are intentional about coming back together at bedtime and reconnecting, if only for the few minutes of brushing teeth and getting under the covers. Going to bed together builds connection and provides opportunity for more intimate connecting.” ― Kurt Smith, therapist who specializes in counseling for men

3. They unplug from their phones and other devices. 

“We live in a wired world, and more often than not, this takes away from the time couples could spend connecting through dialogue, affection or intimacy. What’s more is that when your partner is on their phone, you feel like they’re not in the room and are somewhere else instead. In my therapy practice, couples who become aware of this intrusiveness sometimes create general rules such as ‘no phones past 9 p.m.’ or ‘no phones in the bed’ to counter such dopamine-inducing but oxytocin-suppressing social media habits. This can really set a couple up for feeling close throughout the entire next day.” ― Kari Carroll, couples therapist

4. They prioritize getting a good night’s sleep.

“Although this isn’t very romantic, beyond the usual advice ― i.e. kiss goodnight, have sex, and say, ‘I love you’ ― getting a solid night’s sleep fosters good mental health, which in turn, makes people more emotionally available during the day. If sleep is hard to come by, get professional advice to develop good sleep habits.”  ― Michele Weiner-Davis, therapist and author of Divorce Busting

5. They take a few minutes to practice gratitude. 

“Gratitude has been shown to have a wonderfully positive effect on mood and mindset, so why not share that together? Whether it’s something specific you appreciate about one another or a positive experience from the day, share something you’re thankful for to end the day on a bright note.” ― Howes  

6. They don’t try to settle arguments that aren’t easily resolvable. 

“It may not seem logical, but happy couples don’t actually settle disagreements before going to bed. We’ve all heard the adage, ‘do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,’ but it’s actually misunderstood. Trying to address heavy subjects, especially those you disagree on, at the end of the day when you’re both tired and short on patience is not smart. Too many couples make the mistake of starting fights at this time of day when they should be building connection ― not creating division.” ― Smith 

7. They set aside time to chat about the day and open up about their feelings. 

“The happiest couples regularly discuss the external stressors in their life and allow their partner to vent often. This doesn’t mean going into negativity overload all evening, but it does mean setting aside 15 to 30 minutes to unwind and lean into the relationship by showing support for the other relationships and experiences in your partner’s life. In my practice, I help couples listen to their partner’s stresses without feeling the need to take them on or problem-solve. Their partner tends to be appreciative of this opportunity and just feeling understood empowers them to be ready to tackle the next day’s stresses.” ― Carroll

8. They keep the kids out of the bedroom. 

“Your bedroom should be a sanctuary for the two of you. Although nightmares and illnesses might trigger children to climb into bed with you, in general, if intimacy and connection is your goal, encourage children to stay in their own rooms. Couples need privacy and boundaries to stay connected.” ― Weiner-Davis

23. Compassion is key. 

24. Do what makes you happy. 

25. Being a woman does not dictate what you can and cannot do. 

26. Always negotiate your salary. 

27. Don’t let anyone view you as a body instead of a mind. 

28. You are always enough.

Rosie O’Donnell Says ‘Things Have Been Rough’ for Her Family: I Feel ‘Joan Crawford Was Framed’

The 28th GLAAD Media Awards in N.Y.C. had a very special surprise guest this year: Rosie O’Donnell.

The actress and television personality took the stage Saturday at the New York Hilton Midtown to bestow the Vito Russo Award upon Broadway star and longtime friend Billy Porter, opening her speech with a very honest personal admission.

“Things have been rough in my family in the last week. Let’s just say I feel strongly Joan Crawford was framed,” said O’Donnell, 55, likely referring to the late actress’s strained relationship with her older children, as chronicled in Mommie Dearest.

RELATED VIDEO: Rosie O’Donnell Responds to Question About Daughter’s Disappearance: “No Mom Is Perfect”

 

O’Donnell didn’t speak further on the details of the recent troubles in her family, which in the past included an estrangement from daughter Chelsea, 19. As of March, the twosome were not on speaking terms, although they reconciled last summer after Chelsea ran away from home at 17 and subsequently married plumber Nicholas Alliegro, who is 12 years her senior.

On Wednesday, O’Donnell shared a cryptic post on Instagram: a poem including such lines as “i struck back when u kicked my chest” and “a trick by nick, mommy is too smart.”

“2:06 – r u up? all this time – just minutes away … miscarriage? no idea – him still – sad really – HE put u out – more than once – should i brace for impact – u got more to say – make a home chelsea – this one u never liked,” O’Donnell captioned the post.

FROM COINAGE: This Is How Much it Would Cost to Paint the White House (And More Crazy Facts)

 

In early March, Chelsea told Inside Edition that, “the last time we got into an argument, we ended up screaming at each other and I left the room,” saying she was “done” after O’Donnell kicked her out of the house.

“I would just want her to know that we’re doing really great and we’re happy,” Chelsea added, saying she’d “someday” like to have a better relationship with O’Donnell: “I hope.”
