Thank you for making #thewrongmissy the #1 movie in the world on @Netflix! Unbelievable. It’s been so exciting for everyone who worked on the movie. Thank you for watching.

“I started doing improv in 2003,” she told the publication. “I was in high school and I started taking adult classes at Improv Olympics.” Lapkus was a frequent guest on Comedy Bang Bang, the podcast hosted by Scott Aukerman, and her comedy career took off from there. The Wrong Missy star also has a podcast titled With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus.

Lapkus also told the Daily News about working with legendary comedic actor (and SNL alum) David Spade on The Wrong Missy.

“It was really, really cool to get to work with him,” she said about Spade. “He’s just so funny, and he’s extremely kind.” Lapkus continued:

We definitely had a lot of moments where we couldn’t stop laughing because things were so ridiculous … It was so insane that we had moments where they would say cut and we’re just like, ‘What is happening?’

It sounds like the energy on set was pure fun — which no doubt, shows through in The Wrong Missy.

“We couldn’t stop laughing,” Lapkus remembered. “It was absolutely so absurd that it was hard not to break a lot of time.” A lot of the fun came from the script itself. Lapkus took the role and ran with it, saying:

… it was so fun because this role is just so crazy. Missy truly can say anything, and she’s just living on another planet, so it’s very fun to play a character like that.

The Wrong Missy Star is married to fellow improv comedian, Mike Castle. Castle also stars in Brews Brothers, a new Netflix project. The LA Daily News reported that the comedic couple is “finding ways to do comedy online including watch-along commentaries on TV shows that listeners can cue up like a commentary track as a show plays.”

“It does help me feel like things aren’t as dreary — I have somebody in my house I can do improv with,” Lapkus told the publication. However, the actress admitted she wanted to get back to live, in-person comedy.

“I miss performing on stage. I miss just all the freedoms that we took for granted,” Lapkus explained. “So I look forward to the day where we can just do shows and hold a microphone and not worry about if someone spit on it. It’s a weird time.”

Spider-Man 3: Tom Holland To Share Screen Space With Tobey Maguire? Read DEETS

After two successful Spider-Man films, Tom Holland is all set to star in the third one. The first two films were titled – Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019). The title of the third film is not revealed yet but the producers have said that it will have the word ‘home’ in it.

In Spider-Man: Far From Home, we saw Tom Holland’s Peter Parker dealing with the loss of Tony Stark and betrayal from Mysterio. His love story with MJ had just begun at the end of the film. But Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio revealed Peter’s identity as Spidey with shocking accusations and that has put him under the radar. Now, fans can’t wait to know what to expect in Spider-Man 3.

But it seems like Tom Holland has already given his ideas to Marvel. As reported by WeGotThisCovered, the actor wants former Spider-Man, Tobey Maguire, to play the role of Uncle Ben in Spider-Man 3. The report mentioned that Tobey will appear as MCU’s Uncle Ben in flashbacks. But will the actor be up for it? No one knows it yet.

This news isn’t surprising as, in several interviews, Tom Holland has expressed his liking for Tobey Maguire’s portrayal of Spider-Man. So, it will be interesting to see both the talented actors in the same frame. Meanwhile, along with Spider-Man 3, MCU also has films like Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, and The Legend of The Ten Rings, Black Panther 2, Thor: Love and Thunder and a few lined up.

There are also Disney+Marvel shows to look forward to. From The Falcon and The Winter Soldier to Loki To WandaVision, MCU has great projects in the pipeline to entertain their fans.

Jennifer Aniston WARNS Brad Pitt To Quit Playing Games Or She’ll End The Friendship, Let Alone The Romance?

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are all over the tabloids. And with the morning, here comes a new piece of report. Owing to the entire Alia Shawkat drama, the FRIENDS actress is tired of her ex-husband’s actions. She has warned him of ending the friendship, let alone the romance!

Yes, that’s what the speculations now have to offer. Apparently, Jennifer Aniston is tired of her husband constantly dwindling and playing games with her. It may be said that Brad Pitt is quarantining with her, but Alia Shawkat’s pictures outside his gated community have a whole different tale to narrate!

A source close to National Enquirer now reveals that The Morning Show actress has provided Brad Pitt with an ultimatum. Talking about the Christmas Party that the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor attended at Jennifer Aniston’s place, their source reveals, “Jen hoped this was a sign of betting things to come, that maybe they would even get back together. She’s even told him she has no intention of maintaining a friendship, let alone a romance, if he continues to play games!”

Talking about their on-going scenario, it is said that Brad Pitt randomly calls Jennifer Aniston once in a while. Although he remains missing the rest of the time, he acts like nothing at all has happened in front of her. “He acts like nothing’s going on, asking Jen how things are, being all flirty but everyone knows Alia Shawkat has been staying over at his place and hanging with him nonstop,” adds the source.

Now, in the contrary, Hollywood website Gossip Cop as always has debunked these rumours. “While it is unclear what the nature of Pitt and Shawkat’s relationship is, one thing we know for sure is that there’s nothing more than friendship between the Ad Astra star and Aniston,” reveals their report.

Only time will tell what the truth is, but who do you think Brad Pitt would really be with?

Chris Evans Opens Up On Taking Up Captain America’s Role After Talking To His Family, Robert Downey Jr & Therapist

Chris Evans Opens Up On Taking Up Captain America’s Role After Talking To His Family, Robert Downey Jr & Therapist

Chris Evans made his entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2011 with the film, Captain America: The First Avenger. His character Steve Rogers or Cap won millions of hearts from the first film itself. We all know Chris was reluctant to play Cap’s role when he was first offered. There were a lot of reasons for him to say no as he had anxiety when he was offered the superhero character.

In a podcast of The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter, Chris Evans shared how he had declined the role multiple times. But Marvel President Kevin Feige wanted him to play Captain America and hence, he never gave up. The Defending Jacob actor spoke about the offer with his family, friends and even his therapist. When Chris finally said yes, the actor couldn’t stop overthinking after the release of the first film.

The actor said, “That’s why in the whole first movie my hair was on fire. You’re so scared. I was like I can’t believe I’m doing it. Please don’t backfire, please don’t blow up in my face. Not only did it not, but it is also the best decision I’ve ever made.” Chris Evans also shared how his Avengers: Endgame co-star Robert Downey Jr aka Iron Man helped him deal with the confusions he had while taking up the role.

Chris Evans shared, “We had the same agent at that time. I knew where they wanted to go and that’s part of the initial deal. It’s not just for Captain America, there Avengers movies and that was daunting. Just hearing him give that little nudge of encouragement. It just made me feel I’m part of the gang and not so intimidated.”

But Chris Evans also couldn’t stop worrying about his performance compared to Robert Downey Jr’s Iron. The Fantastic Four actor added, “This guy, he is crushing this role and I don’t want to be the weak link here. But again, it was a nice comforting thing that he was in my corner.”

Evans also said that he is grateful to Kevin Feige for helping him to not make a giant mistake of rejecting Captain America’s role. Meanwhile, with Avengers: Endgame, Chris Evans’ journey as Captain America came to an end. His contract ended last year. Along with him, even RDJ won’t play Iron Man anymore in the MCU.
