'Star Wars' might have a new director, and other news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Rian Johnson, the director of "Looper" and several memorable "Breaking Bad" episodes is in talks to write and direct "Star Wars: Episode VIII" and write a treatment for "Episode IX." [Deadline]
  • Thank you so much Andy Cohen for asking Jennifer Lopez about dressing Ben Affleck, her reported feud with Mariah Carey and who is better in bed between dancers, singers and actors during "Watch What Happens Live." Sorry Ben. [Bravo TV]
  • We hope Zoe Kravitz doesn't start a diet craze with her confession that she drank clay to lose weight for a role because ain't nobody got time for that. [Us Weekly]
  • So much yes for Rosario Dawson being cast in Netflix's "Daredevil." [EW]
  • Oh Matt Lauer not you too with the short suit. Is this real life? [People]
  • "Thelma and Louise" stars Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis reunited for a picture on Twitter. And it was awesome. [Susan Sarandon's Twitter account]

    What has happened to my beloved Star Wars???!!! First, we are very unhappy with the choice of JJ Abrams for director, and then the franchise is further downgraded with a director of a few episodes of "Breaking Bad"??? Good Grief. 🙁

      The marketing department happened....they typically ruin things...or have no idea at all. They are like the weather forecasters; they get to be wrong all the time and retain their jobs.

    For you guys who are contemplating that "short suit", don't do it ever! That is just plain strange looking. Well, I've been gone awhile. What has happened to this blog?

      Wow Sadie, I see what ya mean. Ghost town.
      As for the short suit, please guys never ever wear that, unless you're out to make someone laugh!
      Zoe Kravitz drank clay? Who thinks of that stuff?

    I like Star Wars, but I was urged to join the Sith with dark ladies that had victory over entire armies but I would have to kill from them. Naw. I looked at the Jedi. *a three second pause* nerds! I just won't join up at all.
    ~some character I'm devleoping as a hobby in the Star Wars universe.
