‘AMLT’s James Roday Rodriguez Teases ‘Doors Are Being Opened’ For Gary & Maggie Again

James Roday Rodriguez

There’s hope for Gary and Maggie! HL got EXCLUSIVE season 4 scoop from James Roday Rodriguez about what’s next now that Gary and Maggie are going on a road trip and the impact of Gary finding that post-it.

The A Million Little Things season 4 midseason finale ended with Gary accompanying Maggie on a journey to Albany. Earlier in the episode, Liam holed up at Gary’s place, and Gary had a heart-to-heart with Stephen about Darcy. As he was going through some of his things, Gary found Maggie’s “I’m in” post-it note. The universe does have a way of telling us things, after all. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with James Roday Rodriguez about what this road trip could mean for the former couple.

“Well, what happens in an Audi generally stays in an Audi, and Gary drives an Audi,” James joked. “I think it’s probably impossible for those two to spend that much time together in a confined space and not have something happen. I think they both know that on a pretty fundamental level when they both agree to get in that car. I think doors are being opened or at least left ajar at that point.”

James agreed that Gary finding the post-it again was definitely a sign to him about Maggie, especially after Gary had told Stephen that the universe finds a way to make things happen if two people are meant to be together. “I’m guessing that he’s probably going back in the Maggie direction now that he’s rediscovered the post-it,” James said. “These people are incapable of breaking away from one another and actually healthily starting fresh. They can’t get away from the friend group. I think that’s probably where his head’s at when he says all that stuff.”

However, Maggie does have a boyfriend in Cam Lamoureux, so that could provide complications for Gary and a possible reunion with Maggie. “He’s not just any boyfriend, right? He’s NHL leading scorer Cam, who is a personal hero of Gary’s,” James told HollywoodLife. “It would be like me walking in and discovering that my ex-girlfriend was dating Val Kilmer. That’s what that moment is for Gary. It’s a lot to digest, and it’s a lot to navigate. But I’ll tell you what Cam doesn’t have on Gary is a cancer support group church bathroom meet-cute. He doesn’t have that.”

During his conversation with Stephen, Gary didn’t harbor any bad blood about how things wound up with Darcy, who is now pregnant with Stephen’s baby. HollywoodLife asked whether or not Gary still has some baggage when it comes to his ex.

“I think it’s tough when you make plans to start a family with someone, blow it, and then find out that she’s with child and that the only way that could have happened is basically for her to have said goodbye to you, go directly to bed, and make said baby,” James noted. “It’s a tough blow. It’s definitely a kick to the manhood and the ego. I would imagine that’s kind of staying for a while. But, you know, Gary, he’s sort of a self nihilist. He tends to put himself in situations that are as inconceivably awful as humanly possible so that they hurt to the max.”

When it comes to Gary and Sophie, their relationship has yet to be mended after Sophie found out about Gary’s involvement in what happened to Peter. James admitted that he’s not sure if Gary and Sophie’s relationship will ever fully recover.

“That was a pretty special relationship on the show,” James said. “I think Gary’s relationship with both Danny and Sophie probably means as much to him as his relationship with the other adults because of that time they spent together and the extenuating circumstances. I think the fact that he messed up as epically as he did and knows that that choice was going to come with consequences, it’s kind of put him in a position of having to accept that this is what he did, and he’s not going to be able to change it. And if she never wants to talk to him again, she never wants to talk to him again. He was misguided, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. So, progress? I don’t know. I mean, it’s a mixed bag, right? I think because we feel bad for everybody. We want it to somehow work out, but that’s not generally the way it goes in real life. When you make a mistake of that magnitude, you have to allow for the possibility that that relationship is over. I think it’s about that balance. It’s the reality versus what we wish for. And in this particular case, it may be that reality wins out and that’s sad. But the good news is, there’s nothing else sad on our show.” A Million Little Things season 4 will return in 2022.

The Orolay mid-length down jacket covers your upper thighs and is filled with white duck down with high purity to keep you super warm all winter long!

Like the popular Canada Goose Parka, this down jacket hits just above your knees and the ultra-warm hood is lined with removable high-quality faux fur to keep you fashionable and warm. The down jacket also features a two-way separated front zipper that demonstrates strong and smooth features, two side-entry pockets that can keep your hands warm and also help with carrying your small items, and adjustable elastic rib cuffs that are destined to keep you warm at all times! 

Customers gush over this down jacket in reviews, with one user saying “don’t let the thinness fool you, the coat may be just what you need!” “I have worn this coat in minus 15 degrees wind chill and with a medium weight sweater.

“I was headed to NYC the week after Christmas and knew it was supposed to be one of the coldest stretches ever (15 degrees + windchill) so I ordered this coat to keep me warm since we were going to be doing a lot of walking outside. It was delivered exactly when promised so I had it in time for our trip,” a reviewer explained. “The coat fit great (I’m 5’5″ and weigh 124 and size medium fit perfectly – with a shirt & sweater underneath). It was nice and long too (reached the top of my legs) so it kept me really warm. It was really comfortable and never felt or looked bulky or cumbersome. The zipper goes up nice and high so my neck was warm (although I did wear a scarf so that helped too)! The hood was great — just wish there was a button or snap that connected the two sides of the hood under the neck to keep it more securely in place in the wind. I did have a ribbed hat on underneath because of the extreme cold and the hood stayed up fine even over that.”

Many customers suggest sizing up in the Orolay Down Jacket as it appears to run small. Plus, you want some extra space to bundle up underneath it and add some extra layers! The down jacket comes in a variety of colors on Amazon to choose from, including a rich navy, bright white, army green, and black. Shop now!

Here’s What Happened When Accused Blaccenteur Awkwafina Was Nominated For An NAACP Image Award

Here’s What Happened When Accused Blaccenteur Awkwafina Was Nominated For An NAACP Image Award

Awkwaaaard

Today’s main character on Twitter is (you guessed it!) Awkwafina who was nominated for an NAACP Image Award (Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance – Motion Picture) after years of outrage over her plucky use of a ‘Blaccent’ in popular films like “Crazy Rich Asians.”

Other nominees include Andre Braugher (Spirit Untamed), Brian Tyree Henry (Vivo), Eric André (Sing 2), and Letitia Wright (Sing 2) but it was the Golden Globe-winning actress who overshadowed the nomination proceedings hosted by Marcus Scribner and Tinashe.

You may recall the aloof comedian’s awkward response to a question about her use of a Blaccent in an interview with Reuters Showbiz that immediately went viral.

“Um… You know, I’m open to the conversation. I think it really is something that I think is a little bit multi-faceted and layered, and so… yeah.”

At this point, it’s clear she’s not reading the room that’s flooded with complaints about her Blaccent and how she benefits from it as an Asian-American woman in Hollywood.

Whether or not she’ll seriously address the issue remains to be seen but the controversy hasn’t seemed to stop her from being cast in major films like Disney’s live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid” starring Halle Bailey.

Awkwafina aside, the NAACP got the star-studded nominations right for the 53rd Annual Awards show that you can watch on February 26th at 8:00 PM ET/PT on BET.

“We are thrilled to recognize this year’s nominees, who have all brought dynamic, entertaining, and thought provoking content to our attention through their incredible work in film, television, music and more,” said Karen Boykin-Towns, Chairman of the Image Awards Committee.

BET President/CEO Scott Mills also expressed his excitement about the upcoming event.

“The BET team is immensely proud to continue our partnership with the NAACP and the annual Image Awards, underpinning our longstanding legacy of celebrating Black Excellence,” he said.

“It is an extraordinary privilege to provide our unparalleled platforms to recognize the vast contributions of Black creators, in a way that only BET, and NAACP can.”

How do you feel about the NAACP nominating Awkwafina? Tell us down below and peep the Twitter chitter-chatter on the flip.

“Countdown to the NAACP responding like. . . “we are for the advancement of ALL colored people, and Awkwafina is a woman of color!” – this really might happen, though

Jason Bateman’s Wife: Everything To Know About Amanda Anka & Their 20 Year Marriage

Published

Jason Bateman & Amanda Anka

Get the scoop on Amanda Anka, who has been happily married to actor Jason Bateman for over two decades.

Avid TV and movie fans should be familiar with Jason Bateman. The 53-year-old A-list star is best known on the small screen for his roles in Arrested Development and Ozark. In film, he’s starred in JunoHorrible BossesThe SwitchZootopia, and more. Jason is also a director, producer, and hosts the SmartLess podcast alongside Will Arnett and Sean Hayes. But what fans may forget about Jason is that he’s been happily married for over two decades now. His wife, Amanda Anka, is beautiful and talented in her own right. Here’s everything you need to know about Amanda and her everlasting romance with Jason.

Amanda is an actress & producer.

Like her husband, Amanda is an actor. One of her first acting jobs was as a vampire in a 1991 episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, according to her IMDb. She’s had minor roles on Beverly Hills, 90210ERTaxiBones, and The Fosters. She was also part of the voiceover cast of Adult Swim’s mockumentary TV special The Greatest Event in Television Series. Amanda is currently a co-producer on Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, alongside stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. She and Jason have been close friends with Jennifer, 52, for years.

Amanda’s father is famous.

Amanda comes from a famous family. Her father is singer Paul Anka, 80, while her mother is former model Anne de Zogheb. Paul and Anne divorced in 2001, and she died in 2017 at 74 years old. Amanda has four sisters: Amelia, Anthea, Alicia, and Alexandra. She also has a half-brother, Ethan, who is Paul’s son with his second wife, Anna Åberg.

How did Jason and Amanda meet?

Jason and Amanda were just teenagers when they met at a Los Angeles Kings hockey game in 1987. However, the pair didn’t start dating for another 10 years. “I just wasn’t into where he was at,” Amanda told GQ in 2013.

When did Jason and Amanda get married?

Jason and Amanda tied the knot in July 2001, after four years of dating. He previously told The Daily Telegraph, “I looked around at the relationships that were the longest in my life, and they were the ones I had with my friends. I thought, if I only wanted to get married once, I should probably marry a friend. I wanted to marry somebody who wasn’t someone I had to be in any particular mood to want to be around – with close friends, you can be with them no matter what mood you’re in. just waited until I found a girl that really was that in my life. Amanda is and that’s why it feels so effortless.”

But the start of Jason and Amanda’s marriage wasn’t easy. Jason had struggled with alcohol and drugs throughout the 1990s, and after his wedding, the bad behavior continued. “I was never at a place where rehab would have been appropriate,” he said in a past interview with Details. “Booze was what would make me want to stay out all night and do some blow or smoke a joint or whatever, so shutting that off was key. It’s like ketchup and French fries — I don’t want one without the other,” he added. Amanda eventually took a planned holiday trip to Mexico without her husband and demanded he seek help, which he did. He recalled to Details, “Do you want to continue being great at being in your twenties, or do you want to step up and graduate into adulthood?”

Amanda and Jason have 2 kids.

Jason and Amanda welcomed their first child, daughter Francesca, now 15, on October 28, 2006. Six years later, their daughter Maple, now 9, was born on February 10, 2012. Jason and Amanda have enjoyed so many special moments with their daughters over the years. In July 2017, Amanda and the girls supported Jason at his Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star ceremony in L.A. The actor also gave his family a sweet shoutout when he won a SAG Award in Jan. 2019 for his performance as Marty Byrde in Ozark. “Amanda, Franny and Maple, without you, none of it would be enjoyable. And it probably wouldn’t be possible,” he said in his acceptance speech. “I love you more than I even tell you I do and I’ll be home for kisses, so don’t go to bed. And Amanda, pop a mint. I’m gonna come give you yours in about five minutes.”
