TwitterFacebook

What do you do if you’re working on a movie that’s two days from wrapping and you still don’t have any money to show for it? 

Well, if you’re Kal Penn, you go on strike. In the clip above from The Late Late Show with James Corden, the actor told the story of an independent movie he was shooting in India that he hadn’t been paid for — and what happened after he refused to show up on set in protest, on the advice of some Bollywood actors.

What follows is an anecdote that’s both funny…

‘The Magicians’ confirmed the show’s best ship and the show is better for it

Spoilers ahead for The Magicians, up through Season 4′s “Escape From the Happy Place.”

Syfy’s The Magicians has always been far from the straightest show in television. Its queerness is ever-present, sewn into the fabric of a universe where sex is magic and the relationships between its main characters freely disregard the borders of platonic and romantic love. 

Still, even with the backdrop of polyamorous throuples and gay royals, the primary romance on the show has been that of Quentin…

TwitterFacebook

Listen, no one expects you to know everything about Captain Marvel going in.
