Afternoon Links: Muppets Most Wanted Finds a Way to Make a Must-Watch Teaser

When New York Times film critic A.O. Scott’s recent tweet got weirdly transformed into a full-page ad for Inside Llewyn Davis, the Muppets were watching. Now we’ve got a nice twist on the obligatory umpteenth movie teaser, one that co-opts tweets from made-up-but-still-funny accounts like @yolofantastic and @moviesareawsm. We, too, r so stoakd for this kewl movie.

Days after adding Sasheer Zamata to the cast, Saturday Night Live has also hired two of its recent auditions, LaKendra Tookes and Leslie Davis, as writers.

Aaron Paul and Michael Jackson once happened to have an “hour-long heart-to-heart about family and upbringings.” Then they did a shot.

“By focusing on bodies, we don’t focus on the lived realities”: Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox schools Katie Couric on what’s not cool when it comes to interviewing a transgender person.

Hang on a sec: Tupac met with George Lucas about taking the role of Mace Windu, the Jedi master who Samuel L. Jackson ended up playing in the Star Wars prequels. (Also: there’s a Tupac musical, Holler If Ya Hear Me, opening on Broadway this June.)

Archer supposedly won’t be a spy show anymore because writer Adam Reed “got bored.”

Paul Blart: Sequel Cop.

And a crucial Dennis Rodman follow-up [Part 1, in case you slept through Tuesday]: He sang “Happy Birthday” to Kim Jong-un. IN HIS DENNIS RODMAN VOICE.
