Though we recently learned that Netflix’s adaptation of A Series Of Unfortunate Events would be wrapping up with Season 3 (with the show having channeled all of Daniel Handler/Lemony Snicket’s books), that’s for the future. Season 2 is only about to arrive, and there’s a new teaser online.
As hijacked by Neil Patrick Harris’ scheming Count Olaf, the new season promises to be even worser in the best way. The story will continue to see the Baudelaire orphans (Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes and Presley Smith as Violet, Klaus and Sunny) bouncing around various potential foster carers even as Olaf continues to pursue them, driven by the idea of getting his hands on their family fortune.
Nathan Fillion (as the brother of the Snicket character played on screen by Patrick Warburton), Tony Hale, Lucy Punch and Roger Bart all joined the cast for this next season, and the show will return on 30 March. Look away…
When Hugh Jackman forgot two very important people in his Best Duo acceptance speech, his young Logan costar Dafne Keen didn’t shy away from calling him out on live TV. But first, she scolded him for hogging the mic at the MTV Movie & TV Awards Sunday night (May 7) in Los Angeles.
“Thank you, thank you. Listen, on behalf of —” Jackman began, accepting the Golden Popcorn award that Get Out, Atlanta, and Beauty and the Beast stars (among others) were also up for.
“Hey, hey,” Keen interrupted. “You do 17 years [as Wolverine], I don’t speak for half of the movie, and you get to say the thank yous? OK, no.” You go, girl!
“Tonight I want to thank MTV and mom,” Keen continued. “Happy Mother’s Day in Spain.”
D’aww! To make things even more precious, she scolded Jackman for not including his parents on his thank-you list. “You didn’t write your parents here. He thanks mom and dad,” she politely announced to the crowd. They wrapped things up by shouting out their Logan squad and ending their speech with a proper growl. Done and done.
