Potential reboot of ‘The Office’… Zendaya & Tom Holland still going strong… Mike Richards has stepped down as the host of Jeopardy!… The next Bachelor… and Tom Cruise surprises family after landing in their garden
At the Edinburgh International TV Festival, a reporter for Deadline asked the NBCUniversal Chairman of Entertainment Content Susan Rovner about the possibility of rebooting “The Office.” She said, “Whenever Greg Daniels wants to do one, we’re standing by.” Greg is the person responsible for adapting the British version of “The Office” for the US. He told “Collider” that it COULD happen…just not right now. He said, “It’s not impossible for sure. I would want to be involved, and I’ve got two other shows I’m working on right now.” Those would be the Amazon Original series “Upload,” which is about a man who is able to choose his own afterlife by having his consciousness uploaded into a virtual world, and the Netflix Original Series, “Space Force,” a show he created with Steve Carell, who also stars in the show. It’s about the people in charge of creating a sixth branch of the armed services — the Space Force.
We haven’t had a Tom Holland and Zendaya update for several weeks. After years of speculation, they were seen kissing a few weeks ago. Over the weekend, Tom and Zendaya were photographed at a friend’s wedding. They look very coupled up in the pictures, too. He has his arm around her and she’s leaning her head into his. By the way, the new trailer for their movie “Spider-Man: No Way Home” was released last night. The movie hits theaters December 17th.
Mike Richards filmed five episodes of “Jeopardy!” right before he quit as the new host. Those will still air. After that, Mayim Bialik will serve as the interim host until a permanent replacement is found. She is currently scheduled to tape three weeks of episodes, but because they film five shows in one day, she’ll knock it out in three days. After that, we’ll see what happens. The Hollywood Reporter says Mayim was actually the first choice to host, but her filming schedule for “Call Me Kat” made it impossible. She settled for hosting the primetime specials instead. But with this huge turn of events, there’s a chance producers will work with Mayim and get this done. But Ken Jennings is still a front-runner for the gig. In fact, the Hollywood Reporter also says it’s his to lose.
Lots of Bachelor/Bachelorette news! The celebrity Instagram account @deuxmoi says they heard from a couple sources that Clare Crawley and Dale Moss secretly got married this past weekend. One source said, “They did it in ‘secret’ but filmed it with a small crew and serious NDA. Negotiating with print outlet to coincide with streaming wedding special.” Neither Clare nor Dale has confirmed the news, but fans claimed to have seen Dale wearing a wedding band. Meantime, Reality Steve says it looks like Greg Grippo will be the next Bachelor. He’s the one Katie Thurston accused of gaslighting her. But Greg’s uncle slipped into Steve’s comments and said, “Well then be prepared to be ‘surprised.’” He then posted and deleted, “You are wrong. They offered it to Greg but he declined. They wanted him. It will be Andrew.” Andrew is the football player Katie eliminated, but then she begged him to stay and he said no.
(SPOILER): What I’ve been hearing the past 5 days or so regarding the next Bachelor are this…been told it’s going to be Greg. Obviously it’s never “official” until ABC announces it (whenever that may be), but at this point I would be very surprised if it’s not him.— RealitySteve (@RealitySteve) August 19, 2021
A family in Warwickshire, England, got a call asking if a helicopter carrying a “VIP who was running late” could land in their field. Apparently, the VIP needed to get to Birmingham but the nearby airport was closed. Homeowner Alison Webb said sure! She thought it would be cool for her kids to see a helicopter land in her garden! When the helicopter landed, out walked Tom Cruise! Alison said Tom thanked her family, elbow bumped her kids and let them take a ride in his chopper while he went to his meeting. She said it was so surreal and she still can’t believe it actually happened!
