Pretty Little Liars Star Lucy Hale Responds To Spinoff Cameo Question

Published

on

Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale responded to whether or not she’d make a cameo in the franchise’s HBO Max reboot series Original Sin.

Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale responded to whether or not she’d make a cameo in the franchise’s HBO Max spinoff series Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin. Hale starred in the original mystery series, which followed a group of teens being tormented by an anonymous presence known as A. Based on Sara Shepard’s books of the same name, Pretty Little Liars earned a massive fanbase over the course of seven seasons on ABC Family (now Freeform) and inspired several spinoff series, including Ravenswood and The Perfectionists.

In 2020, it was announced that a spinoff entitled Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin would be added to the franchise. Riverdale mastermind Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Lindsay Calhoon Bring (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) helm the streaming series which centers on a new friend group navigating a harrowing life with A. The latest incarnation’s liars are played by Bailee Madison, Chandler Kinney, Maia Reficco, Zaria, and Malia Pyles. With buzz brewing about the series, viewers are already wondering if any familiar faces will pop up.

While attending the Original Sin premiere, Lucy Hale opened up to Extra about whether or not she’d appear on the show. After the interviewer said Aguirre-Sacasa has given Hale an open invitation to guest star, Hale didn’t shy away from discussing the possibility. Check out what the actor had to say below:

“I think there’s something really special about how separate they are… I don’t know. Who knows. Would I be a mom now? I never say never, so we’ll see.”

Hale sees Original Sin as a totally new take on the story and clearly doesn’t want to mess with that. Earlier in the interview, the star discussed how this iteration of Pretty Little Liars was much darker and more akin to a slasher. She didn’t shut down the idea, though, pondering whether her character Aria would find herself as a mother all these years later. This isn’t the first time she’s joked about coming back as a mom on the spinoff.


According to Hale, Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin will strike a magic chord amongst audiences, giving something fresh for a new generation, while still tipping the hat to original fans. Seeing her and fellow Pretty Little Liars co-stars like Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson, and Troian Bellisario would be a delight for older audiences. Of course, it depends on how it’s handled. Seeing as the HBO Max series is set in a totally new town, the question remains whether any of them would reprise their old characters or take up a new identity. Perhaps one of them will even wind up being unmasked as A.

‘Weekend Update’ April Fool’s Prank: ‘SNL’ Audience Member Yells ‘You Stink!’ at Colin Jost

Published

on

Michael Che, co-anchor of “Weekend Update,” played a prank on fellow host Colin Jost on the April Fool’s day episode of “Saturday Night Live.”

The segment kicked off as normal, with Jost delivering piercing commentary about former president Donald Trump’s indictment by a grand jury on Mar. 30. But as Jost levied each jab, his jokes were received with timid chuckles. After Jost concluded his portion of the banter, Che made another joke about the ex-president that resulted in uproarious laughter.

Dismayed but not deterred, Jost pressed on with another joke. Following the punchline, an audience member shouted, “You stink!” which caused Jost’s head to immediately fall into his hands. No longer able to keep it together, Che erupted into laughter alongside the viewers, explaining to Jost he told the audience not to laugh at him as an April Fool’s Day prank.

“Am I not mic’d?” Jost said, nearly at the point of tears while imitating the questions running through his brain during the live episode. “And then I was like, ‘Oh I just suck.’”

As the segment continued, Jost struggled to regain composure. Che swiftly proceeded to the next gag as Jost murmured, “God, you’re evil.”

“That’s the meanest thing you’ve ever done to me,” Jost continued. “I’m covered in sweat.”

The audience emitted a chorus of vocal support, cheering and clapping for the comedian, which he jokingly dismissed: “Don’t you even dare,” he told viewers, still processing the anxiety he felt from being pranked on live television.

Watch the April 1 segment of “Weekend Update” below.

Megamind Sequel TV Show Peacock Release Window Revealed

Published

on

Peacock’s Megamind sequel TV show finally receives a release date window. Premiering in 2010, Megamind followed Will Ferrell as the titular alien super villain, who, after defeating his long-time nemesis Metro Man, (Brad Pitt), creates a new hero to fight, only to realize he’s made someone worse than himself. Tina Fey and Jonah Hill also starred in the animated comedy, which has become a meme-ified sensation on the internet over time.


Now, a new advertisement in Kidscreen magazine (via Issu) reveals the release date window for the Megamind series, after being announced nearly a year ago in 2022. The official poster, which features the mischievous blue alien looking into the camera, reveals the series will premiere in 2024. However, an exact release date is still unknown at the time of writing.

Everything To Know About The Megamind TV Series

Megamind concluded on a happy note, with the blue alien realizing his place in the world as a hero rather than a villain. This happens after Megamind’s creation became more dangerous than he could have ever imagined, and had to learn how to be a real hero to save Metro City. The film ended with all the city thanking him for his help, and a museum rebuilt in his honor with Metro Man cheering him on from the sidelines.

However, his role as a superhero will be put to the test in the Megamind TV series. The show will reportedly follow Megamind as he learns the ropes to becoming Metro City’s newest protector. Megamind’s brainbots will record every step of the way as he shares his journey with the world. As the series log line reveals, Megamind will be “the world’s first superhero influencer.” Considering it’s been over a decade since its release, and internet culture has shifted greatly since then, Megamind as an influencer seems fitting given his hilarious legacy on social media.

Megamind isn’t the first DreamWorks animated film to be revived by Peacock. Their 2019 comedy Abominable debuted its own series on the streaming platform in 2022 titled Abominable and the Invisible City. However, its timeline is hard to compare to Megamind‘s in that it only took a few years to get it onto Peacock. While an exact release date has yet to be revealed, an early 2024 release is likely, with further updates likely to come later this year.

‘The Mandalorian’ Panel Kicks Off PaleyFest LA 2023: Three Key Takeaways

Published

on

The Dolby Theater became home to the Star Wars fandom on Friday night, with viewers gathering for a screening of episodes of “The Mandalorian” along with a panel at the 2023 PaleyFest Los Angeles. Pedro Pascal and Katee Sackhoff, stars of the Disney+ live-action series, and executive producers Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni and Rick Famuyiwa joined Entertainment Tonight’s Ash Crossan to talk everything Mando.

Filoni took the stage wearing his iconic black cowboy hat, while Pascal giggled at heckling fans who shouted “papi chulo!” and other comments pertaining to his good looks.

Since its premiere in 2019, “The Mandalorian” has shocked “Star Wars” fans, starting, of course, with the reveal of the oh-so endearing Grogu (aka Baby Yoda) in Season 1, followed by the appearance of Luke Skywalker in Season 2. The show is set after the fall of the Empire and follows Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin (Pascal) as he protects Grogu and tries to reunite Mandalorians alongside Bo-Katan Kryze (Sackhoff).

Over the last five years, Favreau, Filoni, Famuyiwa, Pascal and Sackhoff have worked hard to create something that would delight “Star Wars” fans over and over again. Here are three key takeaways from their “The Mandalorian” panel.

The fan experience is king, so it’s important to keep details under wraps.

A tight-lipped Filoni sunk deeper into his cowboy hat as he tried to dodge questions about upcoming episodes and seasons. “There’s so much you don’t know,” he told the moderator.

It was clear that secrecy over plot and character details was extremely important to the integrity of production. Prior to the Season 1 premiere, no merch was created for the show in order to keep Baby Yoda a secret until fans saw him on screen. Favreau and Filoni also revealed that two separate shoots occurred to keep the Luke Skywalker appearance under wraps in Season 2; even Pascal and Sackhoff had no idea about the matter, though Pascal joked he had an intuition it was happening.

The producers emphasized how important it was to make sure all fans were on the same page to keep the collective spirit of the Star Wars fandom alive.

“’Star Wars’ is about the community of ‘Star Wars’ as much as it is the story,” said Favreau. Therefore, it was crucial that everyone working on “Mandalorian” made sacrifices for the sake of joint fandom celebration.

Seeing the story come to life can get pretty surreal.

There was a moment when the moderator asked Pascal a question, to which the actor replied, “Was that question for me?”

He admitted that he had spaced-out while thinking about the creation of the show. “There’s a moment when you think, ‘Well, yes, this comes from George Lucas, but you guys created this,’” he said to the producers sitting next to him. “I forget that it doesn’t all come from an encyclopedia.”

Sackhoff said she actually didn’t really believe Filoni the first time he pitched a live-action Star Wars series to her. “At the time, I thought you were drunk,” she said. When she finally stepped on set for the first time, she said the experience was “surreal.” Filoni concurred and explained how strange it is to watch his ideas jump from page to screen.

“I see them all the time in my head,” he said. “And then they’re just there.”

There’s always more to come.

Despite doing their best to keep future episodes under wraps, everyone on the panel expressed enthusiasm towards the continuation of “Mandalorian.”

“There’s so much left to do,” Sackhoff said about her character, revealing that she wants to see a lot more development of Bo-Katan.

“We really enjoy making it so we’re going to keep doing it,” Filoni said. “Something that I’ve thought about that I think is interesting is that, probably, people will tell stories with a lot of these characters well after I’m gone.”

From somewhere in the balconies, an audience member in yelled down to him: “Clone yourself!”
