Morning Brew – Chely Wright raises money for new album


Good morning!

Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller wants the original Clarice herself, Jodie Foster, to direct an episode of his NBC series. I’d love to see her in front of the camera, too! Perhaps alongside Margot?

Kathryn Prescott will play a tomboy who goes full drag to join the male Masada army in a new CBS mini-series, The Dovekeepers.

We have our first look at Lucy Lawless in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! Agent Isabelle Hartley will appear in the Season 2 premiere on September 23.


Steve Carell has replaced Zach Galifinakis in the Freeheld feature. As long as it gets made, I don’t care who plays the Garden State Equality Activist.

Chely Wright is hoping to raise $200,000 on Kickstarter to make a new album.

Jennifer Hudson doesn’t care if you think she’s a lesbian, like when she was part of the “Same Love” performance at last year’s VMAs.

If someone ever questions or thinks that, I don’t care what you think. It shouldn’t matter. And I did get that! People were like, “Is Jennifer trying to tell us something?” Hey, I wasn’t, but if you wanna think that, it’s all right with me. When I got the call (to do that performance), I was like, “Oh my god, I definitely wanna do this. A powerful statement is being made and I wanna be a part of that.”
