Here's the Scoop...

GadgetsAnd now for something completely random... Don Cheadle says he is Boggle champion among 'Avengers' cast. What?!

Don Cheadle said on The Tonight Show that he is the current Boggle champion among the Avengers cast.

Cheadle explained to host Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday how the Avengers cast plays the word game during downtime on set.

The actor, who portrays War Machine in the Marvel cinematic universe, said the idea of playing Boggle came from Captain America star Chris Evans. Cheadle also gave props to Ant-Man star Paul Rudd for being talented at the game.

Cheadle was able to find the word Avengers in the last Boggle game that the cast played while traveling together on an airplane. The trip had a scary moment when smoke entered the plane's cabin after a flight attendant made a mistake while cooking food.

"I was focused on the game. 'I'm like we still gotta finish this game,'" Cheadle said. "Yeah it was crazy. It was almost the last Boggle any of us played."

Cheadle also discussed his new Showtime series Black Monday which premieres on Jan. 20 at 10 p.m. ET. The comedy, also executive produced by Cheadle, follows the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street in 1987.

Cheadle will next be seen as War Machine in Avengers: Endgame, set to arrive in theaters on April 26. A teaser trailer for the film featured Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) lost in space following the events of Avengers: Infinity War.

I'm the eating-a-sandwich-while-taking-a-shower champion of the tri-state area. Take that, Cheadle!

Be Well,
Steve

Which Star Trek: Discovery co-star will lead the cast of a new 'Star Trek' spinoff?

Danny Glover joins cast of 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle' sequel

Danny Glover is set to star in Sony's upcoming sequel to 2017's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Glover's role in the film is being kept under wraps. He joins a cast that includes returning stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan along with series newcomers Awkwafina and Danny DeVito.

Jake Kasdan is returning to direct based off a script he wrote with Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner. The sequel will arrive in theaters on Dec. 13, 2019.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which worked as a sequel to 1995's Jumanji starring Robin Williams, featured four high school students trapped in a new video game version of the titular board game. The students transform into characters that resemble Johnson, Hart, Black and Gillan and navigate a dangerous jungle in order to beat the game and return home.

"From Awkafina to Danny DeVito to now one of my action heroes, Danny Glover - it's been awesome having so many actors and OG legends raise their hands wanting to come and play in our Jumanji universe," Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter.

"'Who turns into who?' will always be the fun magic sauce for our audience," he continued.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle earned $962 million worldwide and was Sony's highest-grossing film of all time in the United States.

Glover was last seen starring in Robert Redford's The Old Man & the Gun.

Bill Murray to reunite with Sofia Coppola on new film

Bill Murray will reunite with director Sofia Coppola on her new film.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Murray will star with Rashida Jones in the A24 and Apple movie On the Rocks.

Murray, who previously starred in Coppola's film Lost in Translation, will play a "larger-than-life playboy" father who reconnects with his daughter (Jones) during an adventure in New York. Production begins in the spring.

On the Rocks is the first project from A24 and Apple since the companies signed a multi-year production deal in November. The Wrap said it is unclear if On the Rocks and other films from A24 will open in theaters or appear solely on Apple devices.

Coppola most recently directed a remake of the 1971 movie The Beguiled, which opened in June 2017. Lost in Translation, starring Murphy and Scarlett Johansson, debuted in 2003 and won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

Murray will also star in Jim Jarmusch's new film The Dead Don't Die and Wes Anderson's movie The French Dispatch. Jones plays the title character on the TBS series Angie Tribeca, and is also known for Parks and Recreation.

Which Star Trek: Discovery co-star will lead the cast of a new 'Star Trek' spinoff?

Michelle Yeoh is getting her own spinoff, CBS All Access said Monday.

The as-yet-untitled, sci-fi drama will expand on Yeoh's current role as Philippa Georgiou, "a member of Starfleet's Section 31 division, a shadow organization within the Federation."

"I'm so excited to continue telling these rich Star Trek stories," said Yeoh in a statement. "Being a part of this universe and this character specifically has been such a joy for me to play. I can't wait to see where it all goes -- certainly I believe it will go 'where no WOMAN has ever gone before!'"

Co-starring Sonequa-Martin-Green, Anthony Rapp, Jason Isaacs and Doug Jones, Season 2 of Discovery is to begin streaming Thursday.

CBS All Access announced in October that it had ordered two seasons of an animated Star Trek comedy series called Below Decks.

Yeoh's blockbuster movie Crazy Rich Asians won the Critics' Choice Award for Best Comedy Sunday night.
