The New ‘22 Jump Street’ Trailer Has All the Hot Jonah Hill–on-Angry-Cephalopod Action You Need

Also in the Afternoon Links: The ‘Terminator’ reboot, ‘Gotham’ casting news, and $19 billion in Facebook money.

On the fantasy-casting couch in your mind, did you choose A Good Day to Die Hard’s Jai Courtney as your new Kyle Reese in the upcoming Terminator reboot? If so, congratulations! If not, maybe you had better luck with the Mother of Dragons as Sarah Connor or Jason “Zero Dark Thirty” Clarke as John Connor. But you had no chance of getting Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator itself, because that is a crazy idea that is never going to work. He is 100 years old and machines don’t age.

There is no way that a Jared Leto–Miley Cyrus romantic pairing is going to end well. He has better hair, and that will always be a point of contention.

Facebook is buying smartphone messaging app WhatsApp for $19 billion. Is that still a lot of money?
