Daniel Craig Crashes Rami Malek’s Audition For Prince Movie On ‘SNL’ — Watch

Daniel Craig made a hilarious cameo in a sketch to support co-star Rami Malek on ‘SNL’ — coming dressed as a royal prince instead of the late singer!

Rami Malek, 40, had some help from Daniel Craig during his Saturday Night Live debut! Daniel appeared during a sketch where Rami and Kenan Thompson attempted to audition for the role of late singer Prince in a new biopic film directed by Jordan Peele (in this case, played by Chris Redd). “Wow this is going to be tough — first of all, you guys are my top two choices to play Prince in my biopic?” Chris’ Jordan said to a keen Rami and Kenan, who both came dressed for the role.

The two were then asked to perform a myriad of tasks as the singer, including “doing a funky link on a guitar,” and being “pelted in the legs with a football” — all of which led to the exact same move set to Prince’s iconic song “Kiss,” which was released back in 1989.  “Rami looks identical to prince in costume,” one of the judges retorted, as the actor confirmed he was “up all night” making the costume.

After it was revealed the film was set to be a biopic that turned into a horror film about racism, a third auditioner popped up: Daniel, who apparently confused the role for an actual royal prince instead of the singer. “Am I late? To audition for the part of the prince?” he inquired.

“I’m sorry Daniel Craig…did you even read the script?” Chris asked, as Daniel confidently replied, “It’s a horror movie about racism. I’m here, I’m ready — can I at least have a go, a try?” After he busted a couple guitar strings to “Kiss,” he ended up landing the role because he was dressed as a prince — too funny!

Rami’s appearance comes over a year after his No Time To Die co-star Daniel Craig had the honor. Craig, who is playing James Bond for the last time in the latest release, hilariously spoofed the 007 character during his March 2020 opening monologue with a casino scene. After a flirtation with some ladies (as James Bond does), he enjoyed his usual martini — shaken, not stirred — before drama ensued with a dealer who turned out to be a Spectre agent.

Season 47 of SNL kicked off with a bang, welcoming Owen Wilson, 52, for his hosting debut! The Wedding Crashers star shockingly had not appeared on the series before, previously chalking it up to nerves around public speaking.  Kim Kardashian was up the next week in an episode surrounded with controversy and plenty of buzz. While many speculated the KKW Beauty found would bomb as host, the episode was arguably one of the best in recent years!

The reality star didn’t hold back when it came to making jabs at her reality TV family, including her siblings and mom. Kris Jenner, 65, and Khloe Kardashian, 37, made surprise cameos in two sketches, bringing some serious laughs both times — particularly in the “People’s Kourt” skit where various KarJenners attempted to sue each other for trivial reasons (stealing a makeup artist and not creating enough drama being two of them).

‘And Just Like That’ Premiere: Carrie Bradshaw Suffers A Devastating Loss

Published

The first moments of the ‘And Just Like That…’ premiere featured Carrie making a shocking discovery that changes her life forever. SPOILERS AHEAD!

Life can change in an instant. Carrie Bradshaw knows that first-hand. The Sex and the City revival, And Just Like That…, debuted on December 9 with two new episodes. The first episode ends with a devastating twist: Big dies.

Carrie goes to Lily’s concert recital, while Big stayed behind. Carrie and Big had initially planned to go to the Hamptons together, but Carrie decides to support Charlotte and Lily. Big tells Carrie that he’s going to stay home and take a Peloton class.

Big Dies 

Big is in the midst of a Peloton power ride as Lily wows at her recital. He texts Carrie that they should go to the Hamptons that night when she gets back. As he heads to take a shower after his workout, he feels a pain in his chest. He drops his phone and collapses as the water runs. Big’s phone is just out of reach.

After getting Big’s text, Carrie doesn’t go out with her friends for a drink. She comes back to her apartment and finds it eerily quiet. She calls out for John.

When Carrie walks into their bathroom, she finds Big on the floor. It was almost as if he wanted to get one more look at her before he died. Carrie screams John’s name and runs to his side. She cradles Big in her arms and cried as he passes, her beloved Manolo Blahnik’s getting ruined in the shower. “And just like that, Big died,” Carrie says in the voiceover.

In the second episode, Carrie grieves the loss of Big. She immediately calls Miranda, who rushes to be by Carrie’s side. Miranda arrives just as Big’s body is being removed. “What do I do now?” a broken Carrie asks. Miranda holds Carrie that night in bed. When Carrie closed her eyes, she remembers the first time she saw Big all those years ago.

Charlotte helps Carrie plan Big’s funeral. Charlotte breaks down in tears at the funeral home and admits that she feels guilty for making Carrie go to the concert. Carrie tells Charlotte that Big died of a heart attack, and this is not her fault at all.

Samantha Sends Her Love

Carrie arrives at Big’s funeral before everyone else. She notices flowers on the casket, something she explicitly said she didn’t want. The funeral directors say they wanted Carrie to make a game-time decision and hand Carrie the card that accompanied the flowers. “Love, Samantha,” the card read. Samantha had a falling out with the girls and now lives in London, but she still sends her love to Carrie when she needs it the most. Carrie decides to keep the flowers.

Miranda says a few words at Big’s funeral, along with Big’s older brother. Big’s brother says that Big had just told him that he’d “never been happier in his life.” Todd Rundgren’s “Hello It’s Me” plays during the service.

Later, Carrie texts Samantha to thank her for the flowers. She then receives Big’s ashes at her apartment, and she calls Miranda and Stanford to help her deal. Miranda, Stanford, and Charlotte have been taking turns staying with Carrie. When Charlotte shows up to bring magazines to Carrie, she realizes that Carrie didn’t call her right away. A hurt Charlotte walks away, and Carrie begs Charlotte not to make this about her.

Charlotte confesses that she still feels so guilty about the concert. Charlotte tells Carrie that there’s “no reason” she would call Stanford over her unless she was mad. Carrie admits that she didn’t call because Charlotte gets so emotional. Charlotte says that Carrie seems so mad, and Carrie doesn’t deny it. She’s mad at herself. “I should have gone to the Hamptons with Big on Wednesday night like I wanted to!” Carrie screams.

Charlotte tells Carrie that she can’t blame herself for what happened to Big. That night, Carrie struggles to fall asleep. She asks Miranda for a sleeping pill, but she can’t take one for another 5 hours. Carrie stays awake for the next 5 hours as her world finds its new axis. Big is gone and he’s never coming back. Carrie’s life was on one route, and now that route is unpaved. The future looks a lot lonelier. New episodes of And Just Like That will premiere Thursdays on HBO Max.

Published

on

Accio, nostalgia: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint are back at Hogwarts in the first look photo for HBO Max’s ‘Harry Potter’ reunion special.

Calling all Hogwarts alums: HBO Max released the first look photo for Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts ahead of the reunion special’s Jan. 1, 2022 premiere. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint return to the Gryffindor common room in the spellbinding teaser shared on Instagram on Wednesday, Dec. 8.

“Like they never left,” HBO Max captioned the post.

The streamer announced in November that a retrospective special would be on the way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise’s first film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which premiered in cinemas in November 2001. The special will feature new in-depth interviews and cast conversations about the making-of the beloved franchise.

Filmmaker Chris Columbus and other notable alums, including Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Tom Felton, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, and Evanna Lynch, will also appear in the special.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who recently came under fire for anti-trans comments, is not scheduled to appear in the anniversary special, but will reportedly be featured in some capacity via archival footage. The first look photo comes a few days after HBO released the first trailer on Dec. 5.

After HBO Max announced the special, Emma shared throwback photos featuring Daniel, Rupert, and more cast and crew on Instagram and reflected on her unwavering love for her character, Hermione Granger. “Harry Potter was my home, my family, my world and Hermione (still is) my favorite fictional character of all time,” she wrote.

“I think a journalist once said it was irritating how many times during an interview I mentioned how lucky I was and started counting… BUT I DAMN WELL KNEW!!! And still know,” Emma continued. “I am proud not just of what we as a group contributed as actors to the franchise but also as the children that became young adults that walked that path.”

The actress concluded, “Thank you to the fans that have continued to show their support well after the last chapter closed. The magic of the world wouldn’t exist without you. Thank you for fighting to make it such an inclusive and loving place.”

Mother-daughter bonding: Katy Perry and Daisy went shopping in Beverly Hills this week.

Katy Perry and daughter Daisy, 1, twinned in matching two-piece outfits while shopping in Beverly Hills this week. The singer, 37, wore a pink Adidas tracksuit while her daughter with fiancé Orlando Bloom looked cozy in a brown long sleeve and pant set.

Daisy finished her look with a white bonnet and pink shoes, while her mom opted for a baseball cap and face mask, looking incognito as she held a coffee tumbler. The “Dark Horse” singer welcomed Daisy with Orlando, 44, in August 2020.

The duo — who got engaged in February 2019 after three years of an on-again, off-again relationship — celebrated a major parent milestone this year: Daisy’s first birthday on August 26. On Instagram Story, Orlando shared a massive floral arrangement (daisies, of course) of the number 1 and paid homage to his daughter.

“The gift that never stops giving is the love of a child,” the actor wrote over the photo. On Twitter, Katy also penned a tribute to her daughter. “1 year ago today is the day my life began…,” she wrote. “Happy first Birthday my Daisy Dove, my love.”

Daisy is the singer’s first child and Orlando’s second. He also shares son Flynn, 10, with ex-wife Miranda Kerr, whom he was married to between 2010 and 2013. The model has since remarried, tying the knot with Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel in 2017.

Katy and Miranda have a notoriously close friendship. While on The Drew Barrymore Show in November 2020, Miranda said she adored her ex-husband’s partner. “I adore Katy, and I just feel so happy that Orlando has found someone that makes his heart so happy,” Miranda said.

“At the end of the day, for Flynn to have a happy father and a happy mother is just the most important thing,” the model said. “I’m just so grateful that Orlando and Katy found each other, and I’m so grateful that I found my incredible husband.”

During a joint Instagram Live in April with Miranda, Katy said they were a “modern family” and called motherhood the “best job.” She said, “It’s the most fulfilling. There was no feeling like the feeling when I had my daughter. That was like all the love I was ever searching for what like, ‘bam.’”
