Deadpool/Wolverine: Earlier this week, Ryan Reynolds quickly doused the hot rumor that he would be making an appearance as Deadpool in Logan opposite Hugh Jackman. Now he says: “I want a Deadpool/Wolvie film. But Logan is its own unique and perfect thing. The Big Red Sh**-Talker wouldn’t mix with the tone.” Thus, the possibility exists that Wolverine will cross over and appear in a Deadpool sequel, even if the character is not played by Jackman.

I grew up a couple of subway stops away from Broadway, raised by a theater director in an artist community. My appreciation for the thespian craft started at a very young age. Fences is a celebration of that craft. If you have gotten a chance to see it, let me know what you think… All love.

Kevin Costner: Currently receiving positive critical notices for his supporting role in Hidden Figures (above), Academy Award-winning director Kevin Costner says, “I would like to play out the second half of my career directing more.” In a separate interview, he gets more specific: “It’s about 10 hours long, how about that? Maybe I’ll make three features out of it. There’s a fourth one, too, so it’s truly a saga. I could do TV, or I could also make it like every six months, have a big Western that’s tied together.” [Vulture/Variety]
