Riverdale Busts a Move in Delightful Season 2 Gag Reel. Now that the Black Hood (or a Black Hood) is safely tucked away in jail, it's time to dance! E! News has your exclusive first look at the season two gag reel for the CW drama, and it's anything but dramatic. In fact, it's mostly filled with dancing. We've got chair dancing, thumb dancing, snow dancing, duck face dancing, hallway dancing, and even Jughead (Cole Sprouse) rockin' out behind the scenes. It's delightful, as most things having to do with this cast are. Of course, the second season itself was not quite as joyous as this gag reel, since it featured a lot of murder, organized crime, and gang wars. Betty's dad was arrested for being a serial kliler, Veronica's dad turned into a full-on mob boss supervillain, and Archie was arrested for a murder he didn't commit! We may have to wait quite a few more months before season three arrives, but we don't have to wait much longer for season two and all its special features to be out on DVD. The full gag reel will be available on digital on June 15, and Riverdale: The Complete Second Season will be available on DVD August 7. Riverdale will return to the CW in the fall. (Eonline)

Chris Pratt Would "Love" to Participate in Parks and Recreation Reboot: "I Miss Andy." Our favorite residents of Pawnee aren't giving up on a Parks and Recreation reboot. Just last month, Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler got fans excited when they stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and showed their support for a revival. And as it turns out, you can also add Chris Pratt to the list of cast members who would be open to reuniting on the small screen. "As long as I'm in town, yah, I'll do it," he shared with E! News' Will Marfuggi at the Los Angeles premiere of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. "It films like 10 minutes from my house so that would be dope. I miss Andy too. I would love it. I know I would do it." Chris later joked, "I think [Andy] becomes a weatherman. He would be a good weatherman. He would have no idea what he's even saying." While it's far too early to report anything official, we're happy to confirm Chris is back on the big screen for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. When the film is released June 22, moviegoers will watch Chris and Bryce Dallas Howard's characters rescue the remaining dinosaurs from an extinction-level event. During the film's premiere event this week at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Chris couldn't help but look back at filming the major blockbuster in Hawaii with his son Jack Pratt close by. "I was fortunate to have my son with me the whole time while filming the movie so we both got to honker down and unplug out there. I love Hawaii. It's unreal," he shared while wearing Tom Ford. "He's one of the people on the other side of the curtain. I know he's just five years old, but he'll never be able to watch this film the way another person will be able to watch this film." Chris continued, "He's part of the process of wrapping the package so he doesn't get to quite enjoy opening it up on Christmas morning as much but that's his life. He's going to be a kid who grows up on film sets and as far as I can tell, he loves it and he feels really lucky because he is." And while watching dad film for a major movie may be extraordinary, Father's Day at Chris' house will be much more low-key this coming weekend. "We're just going to kick it. We'll probably keep it plain and simple," he teased. "Church service and hang out, swim in the pool, that kind of thing." (Eonline)

Queer Eye's Fab Five Wants to Take the Show Global. Queer Eye, the roadshow? For two seasons now, the wildly successful Netflix reboot has stayed put in Georgia, bring the new Fab Five's services to those in need in small towns near Atlanta. But the stars of the show are hoping that might change in future seasons. After all, they see your tweets and Instagram DMs. They know you want their help too. "The thing is that we had a great time in Georgia, to shoot the episodes and meet the Heroes here. But the thing is our Instagrams and DMs get lit from people around the world that are just like, 'Can you come to my city? Can you come to my town? Can you come to my country?' And my hope is that we can just continue to go from city to city -- ," Karamo Brown told E! News before Tan France cut him off. "Country to country," the fashion expert added as his co-stars nodded in agreement. "And just help people because what we do is universal. It doesn't matter if you are in a small town or a big city or you're overseas," Brown continued. "The Fab Five can help you." Until that happens, however, keep sliding into those DMs (respectfully, of course) because the guys really do love it. "It's great. It feels lovely when people truly feel like they're your friend, so they will DM us," France said. "I know we all get this, but they will ask my fashion advice. They will send me pictures from the fitting room...I love that. That's how they've connected with me. They know that I'm there to help, that we're there to help" For season two, dropping on the streaming service on Friday, June 15, the Heroes on the receiving end of the Fab Five's help were big more varied when compared to last season's roster of cisgender, mostly straight males. "One of the biggest difference is that they're not all male. We help a woman, we help a transgender male," Bobby Berk, the show's resident design expert, teased. "It's a lot more diverse then it was the first time around. I think that's the biggest shockers." And it's that woman in the season's premiere who seemed to have taught the Fab Five the greatest of lessons, as both Jonathan Van Ness and Antoni Porowski shared how spending time with her really opened their eyes. "One thing I noticed with working with them is that she is in a place where gives so much love and she's not in a place where she wants to receive a lot of love. The focus just isn't really on her," Van Ness explained. "And I've learned with myself is it's a lot harder to accept praise than it is to give it. So kind of just the ability to take a compliment and give yourself that self-love. I preach a lot about it, but we all need to take that advice." "I feel like tend to be a little stubborn and jaded with certain things, and with meeting Tammy in episode one, when she talked about accepting her son's sexuality, she realized that it wasn't a problem with him or with the Bible. But it was the way that she decided to look at it," Porowski added. "That's such a symbol for perspective and the way that we look at something. The facts always remain the same, but...she decided to change her perspective on it and that's possible for anybody. It doesn't matter how conservative or liberal you are or anywhere in between." Queer Eye returns for season two on Friday, June 15 on Netflix. (Eonline)

On Set of 'The Good Doctor' as Freddie Highmore Tackles Being an "Autistic Superhero". "He reminds people that humanity is essentially good," says creator David Shore of how the actor's autistic character has resonated with disabled viewers of the ABC freshman drama. After one year of starring in ABC's runaway hit medical series The Good Doctor, Freddie Highmore has finally landed on the most unexpected thing about portraying a life-saving surgeon for millions of viewers every week. "The first thing everyone thinks about wearing hospital scrubs is true -- they are surprisingly comfortable," he says. "It's like walking around in pajamas all day long. I really should get myself a pair to take home!" His Good Doctor wardrobe isn't the only thing that's a comfortable fit for Highmore. The same goes for his role as Shaun Murphy, a surgical resident who has autism and savant syndrome. The series, which is set in San Jose, California, and shot its 18 episodes primarily in Vancouver, averaged more than 15 million viewers a week, making it the top freshman show of the 2017-18 season. "We've been hearing from people with other disabilities, not just autism," says show creator David Shore (who also exec produced another popular medical drama, Fox's House) of the series' impact. "They are people who feel marginalized and identify with Shaun. We had to be careful that the show isn't preachy, presenting him as some kind of autistic superhero. The show is most interesting not when Shaun learns something but when we learn something from Shaun." And the person who's learned the most from Dr. Murphy? The guy who brings him to life. "Certainly his naturally optimistic side has rubbed off on me," says the U.K.-born Highmore, 26, who scored a Golden Globe nom for his work. "There's a certain cynicism all us Brits are known for, but mine has been somewhat dislodged by Shaun. That's why people have connected with him. He reminds people that humanity is essentially good."

Flipping Out Star Jeff Lewis 'Blindsided' as Daughter's Surrogate Sues Bravo Over Filmed Birth. Flipping Out stars Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward are "devastated" after news broke that the surrogate mother of their 19-month-old daughter, Monroe Christine, is suing Bravo, claiming she never consented that the network could film her delivering the baby for the show. Alexandra Trent filed a lawsuit on Tuesday, claiming that Flipping Out producers filmed her vagina without permission and that Lewis and Edward had personally humiliated her by making "disgusting" comments on the show, according to a complaint obtained by PEOPLE. Bravo, Authentic Entertainment, Lewis and Edward are all named in the suit, which was first reported by Variety. She is seeking damages for unlawful recording, invasion of privacy and fraud. Though reps for Bravo did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment, Lewis, 48, told PEOPLE that the news took he and Edward by surprise. "This is like a blow to the head. We are completely blindsided by this," Lewis said, via phone. "We are just devastated. I thought we had a nice relationship, a friendship. We treated her like an extended member of the family. So you can imagine this is pretty stunning." "And this is where I'm so upset. Because, on one hand, I don't want to tarnish this most amazing experience of my life," he continued. "We couldn't be more grateful to this woman for birthing our child. We are indebted to her... we are so completely grateful to her, because without her, we wouldn't have Monroe. But on the other hand, these are fabricated claims and are completely bogus and without merit. This smells to me like a financial shakedown." Trent was seen on multiple episodes over two seasons of Flipping Out, after Lewis and Edward hired her to carry Monroe. A season 10 episode (filmed on Oct. 25, 2017 and aired Aug. 31, 2018) documented Trent's delivery, with Lewis and Edward -- and the Flipping Out cameras -- in the hospital room as it happened. The show even captured the first moments Monroe was placed in Lewis and Edward's arms, for skin-to-skin contact, seconds after her birth. During interview setups filmed afterwards and spliced into the episode, Lewis makes an off-color joke about Trent, saying, "If I was a surrogate, and I had known there was going to be an audience, I probably would have waxed. And that was the shocking part for Gage. I don't think Gage had ever seen a vagina, let alone one that big." The comment -- and the fact that producers had filmed her delivery -- "deeply damaged Trent" and "caused incredible anguish, self-loathing, contempt and depression," according to the legal documents. Lewis said that he didn't remember making the comment, but when he saw the show, he recognized it as "a poor attempt at humor" and "an off-color joke." When Trent reached out to their surrogacy attorney and said she was upset about what had been said, Lewis sent her flowers and an apology letter. "I thought all was good," he said, adding that he and Edward stayed in touch with Trent well after the episode aired. "We spoke to her for months and months! She sent gifts. We were reaching out and giving her updates and pictures. I'm telling you, this was an amazing experience. We were friends. She was a part of our family. We bought her a beautiful push gift. That's what's so insane to me. I thought this was over." Trent claims in her suit that she had no interest in being on Flipping Out and did not know she would be on a reality show when she responded to Lewis and Edward. A desire to help promote the option of surrogacy, she said, led her to agree to filming ultrasound appointments, but claims she drew the line at filming the birth. Her suit alleges that camera operators secretly filmed from behind a curtain, despite telling her they wouldn't. They also noted, doctors were unaware cameras were rolling and her blurred-out vagina was shown on-screen. Weeks after it aired, a business associated informed Trent of what was on television. She was "humiliated and distraught" and has been unable to get Bravo to take down the clips from their website. She also canceled another surrogacy contract out of "embarrassment." Lewis balked at claims that Flipping Out filmed Trent without her permission. "That, to me, is insanity, because we were upfront and honest from the beginning, to the point where her appearance release was a part of the surrogacy agreement because the whole idea was to document this journey," he said. "It was part of her agreement, it was all tied in. So how do you now say that you didn't know you were being filmed? It's a broad appearance release!" "And not only did she sign an appearance release as part of our surrogacy contract, I believe she signed it as a separate appearance release with the production company. And she signed a nondisclosure agreement, which she now violated. So what's the point of legal agreements if you're just going to disregard them all?" He added: "Flipping Out is not a hidden camera show. There were moments where there were two, three, four cameras. Everybody was mic-ed. There was a boom, there was a producer. There were production assistants. I remember filming at lunch with her family, and that was a big crew there that day. So how do you now say you didn't know you were being filmed? It's unbelievable." In the end, Lewis didn't see any reason he or Edward would use Trent again for baby No. 2. "Shame on her for mudding such a beautiful experience," Lewis said. "I personally believe she will have to answer to God one day for what she's done. And if I were her, I'd start drafting my apology now." (People)

'Bachelorette' contestant Lincoln Adim pulled the wool over the eyes of producers during background checks for the show ... according to Warner Bros. The studio behind the reality show just released a statement about Adim, who, as we reported earlier, was convicted last month of indecent assault and battery on a woman. However, he'd been arrested for the incident way back in May 2016. WB says, "No one on the 'Bachelorette' production had any knowledge about the incident or charges when Lincoln Adim was cast, and he himself denied ever having engaged in or been charged with any sexual misconduct." The statement continues, "We employ a well- respected and highly experienced third party who has done thousands of background checks consistent with industry standards to do a nationwide background check in this case. The report we received did not reference any incident or charge relating to the recent conviction - or any other charges relating to sexual misconduct." "We are currently investigating why the report did not contain this information." Becca Kufrin has not yet eliminated Adim from the show as it airs. (TMZ)

'Westworld': "The Deathbringer" Looms Large Ahead of "Vanishing Point". Plus, the Man in Black (Ed Harris) comes into sharper focus in season two's penultimate episode. Throughout the HBO drama's second season, Westworld fans have rightly feared Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), a revolutionary who is slowly and steadily earning enough titles and monikers to land on Daenerys Targaryen's radar. Just imagine Missandei floating out the words: "Dolores Abernathy, first of her name, the rancher's daughter, Wyatt unchained, and bringer of death." It's enough to send shivers down the spine, particularly in regards to that final nickname, derived from how Akecheta (Zahn McClarnon) described Dolores in this past week's "Kiksuya." In the episode, he calls her "the Deathbringer," a menacing and mythical new way of considering Dolores and her violent role in the current narrative. Speaking with THR about "Kiksuya," co-writer Carly Wray explains the origin of the "Deathbringer" nickname: "When we first started talking about how to use this bottle episode to introduce [Akecheta] in full, we wondered how we would tell this story. It was [Westworld co-creator Jonah Nolan] who suggested we go all the way back. Who has this guy been since the beginning? I believe he was the one who pitched that he was there when Dolores killed Arnold. Akecheta's first introduction to Dolores is as someone who killed the person who created all of them. He has the earliest possible imprint of her as the murderous one. He's the one who is holding onto this seed of the foreboding nature of Dolores' narrative thus far. He's always seen her for what she's capable of, even if he didn't know it." Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) warned Akecheta that the Deathbringer would be returning soon, and that will signal the moment to start searching for the Door. As we've seen all season long, that moment is now, and based on photos from this coming week's penultimate episode, "Vanishing Point," the Deathbringer is more than ready for her closeup. Beyond Dolores' deadly new identity, "Vanishing Point" is positioned to offer up a new take on another familiar killer with more than one name: William, the Man in Black, played by Ed Harris. He's seen in a photo wearing a tuxedo, his hat and revolver far from view. It's a fairly clear-cut view of another man from another time, given another person seen in photos from the episode: Sela Ward, stepping in to play the role of Juliet, William's tragically-fated wife.

Roseanne Barr Claims Racist Valerie Jarrett Tweet "Was About Anti-Semitism". The comedian tweeted about the headline-making post that led to the cancellation of her ABC sitcom on Wednesday night. Weeks after comparing former President Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an "ape" in a racist tweet, Roseanne Barr is claiming that her controversial post "was about anti-Semitism." The actress -- whose eponymous ABC sitcom was swiftly canceled after the tweet -- took to Twitter on Wednesday night to further say she is not a racist. "I want u all2 know I'm fine. I've been using this time2 reflect &2 gain insight on what I said & how it was misunderstood," she wrote. "Needless2 say I'm NOT what people have accused me of! I've never practiced 'RACISM' in my entire life & never will." Barr then went on to say that her initial tweet about Jarrett -- "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj," she wrote -- was her way of denouncing anti-Semitism. "Rod Serling wrote Planet of The Apes. It was about anti-semitism," she continued, referencing the Twilight Zone creator who penned the script for the 1968 sci-fi hit. "That is what my tweet referred to-the anti-Semitism of the Iran deal. Low IQ ppl can think whatever they want." Barr, who apologized to Jarrett, previously stated that she was on Ambien when she wrote the tweet, and also claimed she was unaware that Jarrett is black. Barr also hinted that she will soon elaborate on her Twitter scandal in upcoming media appearances. "guys, I have been planting trees digging in the earth singing and feeling a great deal of relief," she wrote. "I will begin to speak for myself in media soon." The vocal President Trump supporter concluded by letting her followers know that her "faith is stronger today than ever before." She added, "I have faith in the American people to free their minds & unite. I have developed a bit of palsy in my head and hands due to the stress I have lived thru-I sleep a lot now-without ambien too, thank G0D!! goodnight-we are winning! don't give up! PEACE is coming!" At a Los Angeles event on Wednesday night, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey made a pointed reference to the decision to cancel Barr's Roseanne when she said, "When we see things that are happening around us that are counter to our values and our beliefs, our actions must match our words." The network, meanwhile, is exploring spinoff ideas as a way to continue the franchise without Barr. (Hollywood Reporter)
