WHY IS THAT TRENDING?/THE SPOTLIGHT

During a recent virtual interview with Collider, Anne Hathaway discussed why she thought Zoe Kravitz was the “perfect choice” for The Batman’s Catwoman. Saying the following, "You saw the picture of her coming down those stairs, right? Yeah, she doesn't need my advice. If I had any advice it would be literally don't listen to anybody because I think the only way to play that role is to give your version of it. All of us had different directors and all of our interpretations were specific to the films that they were in, kind of like my Grand High Witch is specific to Bob Zemeckis and Angelica Huston's is specific to Nicolas Roeg's, and that's great!" The Witches star even noted the legacy of the equally iconic DC live-action character, The Joker.
Darrell Hammond paid special tribute to film legend Sean Connery upon news of his death and reminisced about parodying him on Saturday Night Live several years ago. Connery, best known as the first actor to play James Bond onscreen, died at age 90 in the Bahamas. "Sorry to hear of the passing of Sean Connery, my condolences to his family," Hammond wrote on Twitter. The show alum played Connery several times on the NBC late-night comedy series in the '90s and '00s, appearing alongside Will Ferrell's Alex Trebek in a Celebrity Jeopardy! recurring sketch. Hammond's character always sparred with the game show host by making inappropriate jokes about him and his mother and messing up the titles of Jeopardy! categories. He reprised the role on SNL's 40th anniversary special in 2015. "Always loved doing my silly impressions of him on SNL, and I heard he once spoke highly of me on The Tonight Show," Hammond wrote on Instagram. "Thanks for making me look better than I am man, RIP 'Mr Connery you wear me out!' 'You didn't say that last night when I was pumping moo goo gai pan all over your tonsils!'
