Ross just spoiled our Friends reunion
Pfft, typical Ross. This weekend, David Schwimmer crushed our hopes of witnessing a full-on Friends reunion. At FX’s TCA panel on Saturday night, Schwimmer said that the rumours of a full cast reunion are “completely inaccurate.” He revealed that Chandler (Mathew Perry) would not be attending the event because he’s in London rehearsing for an upcoming play. “In no way is it a Friends reunion when one member is out of the country,” said Schwimmer. “But look, it’s a great event. We all love James Burrows and I’m sure Matthew Perry would be there if he could, but he’s working in London. Maybe one day there will be [a reunion], but this will not be it.” Urgh, thanks for harshing our buzz, Ross. And we’re mad at you too, Chandler.
A Starman, indeed
Ziggy Stardust will now be a part of our galaxy forever. In one of the coolest tributes to the late rock icon yet, Belgian astronomers have dedicated a new constellation to the memory of David Bowie. The constellation is a seven-star cluster within the vicinity of Mars (of course) that form a lightning-bolt shape like the one painted on Bowie’s face on his iconic Aladdin Sane album cover. Belgium’s MIRA Public Observatory and a radio station called Studio Brussels crafted the tribute. They also created a website where fans can light up a digital version of the constellation with written tributes to Ziggy.
Kylo Ren (aka Adam Driver) hosted SNL this weekend, and he was hilarious! The best part of the show was when he got into character as our new favourite Star Wars baddie and delivered a spoof of Undercover Boss. The Commander of the First Order threw on a wig and glasses and went undercover as a Starkiller Base radar technician named Matt. It’s nice to see that Mr. Ren is willing to have some “real talk with real folks,” but he could really work on his patience. It’s so good. Watch:
Chris Rock is ready to host the “White BET Awards”
Chris Rock took to Twitter this weekend to promote his upcoming hosting gig at The Oscars next month. He also managed to take a light-hearted dig at the award show that somehow only features one minority nomination in a major category. In a post that Rock labeled “The #Oscars. The White BET Awards,” the comedian counts down his top three reasons for why we should all watch The Oscars. (Presenter cleavage? Obviously.)

We can’t wait to see Rock rip every celeb in sight!
The Oscars air February 28, 2016 at 8 pm ET on CTV.
Screech is in the slammer
Screech is officially behind bars. Former Saved by the Bell nerd (and creepy sex-tape star) Dustin Diamond checked himself into a Wisconsin jail this weekend to start serving his four-month sentence for stabbing a bar patron with a switchblade on Christmas day, 2014. He was found guilty of disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon. Mr. Belding is not going to be impressed!
