Here's the Scoop...
You know who looks like they smell fantastic? Ryan Reynolds! No, Seriously! And it appears that I'm not the only one...
Ryan Reynolds is the new face of Giorgio Armani's men's fragrance line.
The 42-year-old Canadian actor stars in a new campaign for the brand's cologne Armani Code Absolu.
Armani announced the news in a series of Instagram posts Tuesday. Photographer Matthew Brookes captured pictures of Reynolds wearing a crisp white shirt and black bow tie.
"Announcing Ryan Reynolds as the new face @armanibeauty #ArmaniCode fragrances. @vancityreynolds," one post reads.
Reynolds will also appear in a promo video directed by Reed Morano, who is known for the Hulu series The Handmaid's Tale.
"The first campaign starring Ryan Reynolds will be dedicated to Armani Code Absolu, the new #ArmaniCode fragrance. The film was directed by @reedmorano, Emmy Award winner for the series 'The Handmaid's Tale,' and the images by photographer Matthew Brookes," Armani wrote.
Reynolds also shared the news in a post on his own account.
"Just finished a short film for @armanibeauty directed by the impossibly talented @ReedMorano. I love working with the #ArmaniCode team. I hope to eventually call Mr. Armani, 'Papa.' But let's take this one day at a time," he joked.
Reynolds is known for playing Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool, in Deadpool and Deadpool 2. He will voice the title character in the upcoming movie Pokemon Detective Pikachu.
Congrats to Mr. Reynolds! I think I came in a close second for that "face of a fragrance" job. Better luck next time, Steve!

'Game of Thrones' prequel adds Georgie Henley, 7 others
The Game of Thrones prequel is adding The Chronicles of Narnia actress Georgie Henley and seven other actors.
The Wrap confirmed Tuesday that Henley, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Alex Sharp and Toby Regbo will have series regular roles in the new HBO pilot.
Henley, who played Lucy Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia movies, celebrated the news in a tweet Tuesday.
"This still does not feel real but wow am I excited and grateful holy moly," the 23-year-old star wrote in all caps, adding a shooting star emoji.
Ackie is known for playing Anna in the 2016 movie Lady Macbeth. Gough appeared in the movie Colette, Bower in the Twilight films, Atim in the TV series Harlots, Jeremiah in the show Humans, Sharp in the Broadway production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Regbo in the TV series Reign.
Henley and the others join previously announced stars Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse. Watts will play a charismatic socialite with a secret, although character details are largely being kept under wraps.
In addition, Variety said SJ Clarkson will direct the pilot and serve as an executive producer. Clarkson has helmed episodes of Dexter, Jessica Jones and Collateral, and is slated to direct the next Star Trek film.
Game of Thrones is based on the George R.R. Martin book series A Song of Ice and Fire, and will return for an eighth and final season in April. The new pilot is set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones.
NBC orders Season 55 of 'Days of our Lives'
NBC announced Tuesday it has renewed its longest running series, Days of our Lives, for a 55th season.
"With writing that manages to weave together Salem's iconic characters with current realities, Ken Corday and his team have ushered the show's legacy into a new era that resonates with both longtime and new viewers," Bruce Evans, executive vice president of current programming for NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "The actors and crew have such a tremendous respect for Days and what it means to fans. We believe that level of commitment shows through and touches our audience year after year."
The soap opera won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama in April.
The show -- which reached a milestone of 13,500 episodes last year -- follows the lives and loves of the Brady, Horton and DiMera families. It stars John Aniston, Galen Gering, Kassie DePavia, Chandler Massey, Deidre Hall, Vincent Irizarry, Stephen Nichols, Thaao Penghlis, Greg Vaughan, James Reynolds and Kristian Alfonso.
"You realize when you go through the whole process [of becoming a parent] that society tricks women a lot - and men too ... This image society gives you - that you have to be a super-woman, that you need to be out of hospital in 24 hours, wearing high heels. No, you already are a superwoman! We're all superwomen - those of us who have children and those of us who don't."
--Penélope Cruz, on the unfair expectations society places on women, in Marie Claire's cover story

Sam Elliott honored with handprint ceremony
Actor Sam Elliott had his handprints and footprints immortalized in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
A ceremony was held for Elliott on Monday that was attended by his A Star is Born co-stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga along with his wife, actress Katharine Ross.
Elliott, Cooper and Gaga posed together for photos and shared a group hug together. Elliott portrays Bobby Maine in the film, the brother to Cooper's Jackson Maine. Cooper also served as director of the musical drama.
"You can't look at it and say the next time has to be as good or better because I don't think there's ever going to be anything as good or better. This is it," Elliott said to Variety about appearing in A Star is Born.
Gaga, on her Instagram story, posted more photos from the event including one of Elliott kissing her forehead.
"So excited to be here for Sam Elliott's hand & footprint ceremony," she captioned the image. "We love you Sam!!" she continued in a second image of herself and Cooper watching Elliott.
Elliott is known for starring in a number of films and television shows including The Big Lebowski and Netflix's ongoing series The Ranch.
Netflix renewed The Ranch for a 20-episode fourth season in November.
Will Smith announces production start on 'Bad Boys 3'
Will Smith has announced on Instagram that production has started on Sony's upcoming action-comedy sequel Bad Boys for Life, stylized as Bad Boys for Lif3.
"Day 1. I'll keep y'all posted," Smith said on Sunday alongside what appears to be multiple scripts for the third entry in the series.
Smith previously confirmed on Instagram in November alongside Martin Lawrence that a third Bad Boys film was on the way.
Smith and Lawrence starred together as Miami detectives Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett respectively in 1995's Bad Boys and in 2003's Bad Boys II.
Bad Boys for Lif3 has a release date of Jan. 17, 2020. Filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are set to direct the film in place of Michael Bay who helmed the first two films.
Vanessa Hudgens, Charles Melton and Alexander Ludwig are set to star as a highly specialized police unit that clashes with Smith and Lawrence's more old school detectives.

Who did Lindsay Lohan say helped her turn her life around?
Lindsay Lohan says media mogul Oprah Winfrey inspired her to turn her life around.
The 32-year-old actress said credited Winfrey with giving her a "different perspective" after her jail time during the Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club after-show Tuesday.
"I think Oprah really gave me a different perspective in life," Lohan told Jonathan Bennett, her Mean Girls co-star and host of the after-show, according to People.
"I was tired of being there for everyone and taking care of everyone and just wanted to be there for myself and be okay with being alone," she said. "It's okay to be alone."
Lohan spoke with Winfrey during an OWN docu-series in 2013 following a 90-day stint in rehab. She shared her biggest lesson from Winfrey in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that aired Wednesday.
"Just to take care of me. I have a tendency to put everyone else first and I forget I need me time," the star said.
Lohan said she hopes Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club will show a different side of her to the public. The MTV series follows Lohan as she manages a club in Mykonos, Greece.
"That was so in my past," she said of her struggle with sobriety. "I'm running the show, so I have to be on it and I love that."
Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club premiered Tuesday on MTV.
