Your Daily Roundup of Hollywood Happenings & Star Shenanigans!
Mikey & Mouth Are In For More!: Ever since director Richard Donner announced that he planned to make a “Goonies” sequel, fans have been dying to know who might return from the original cast from the 1985 movie. “My first thought when Dick said he was doing that was like, ‘Alright, maybe this time it’s true!’ I hope it’s true,” Sean Astin, who played Mikey, told E! News. “I certainly like the idea of doing it. I don’t know if I’d be in it or not. If they really wanted us to be in it, I’m sure there would be some way to work it out.” Adding, “We talk a lot. Corey [Feldman] and I are buddies… Oh, he’s fired up. He’s ready to go.”
Sigourney Weaver Returning For “Avatar” Sequels: Sigourney Weaver’s “Avatar” character died in the 2009 movie, but the actress will return for the upcoming sequels. “Sigourney and I have a long creative history, dating back to 1985 when we made ‘Aliens.’ We’re good friends who’ve always worked well together, so it just feels right that she’s coming back for the ‘Avatar’ sequels,” Cameron said in a statement. Adding, “Her character of Grace Augustine, as fans know, died in the first movie, so she’s playing a different and in many ways more challenging character in the upcoming films. We’re both looking forward to this new creative challenge, the latest chapter in our long and continuing collaboration.” The first “Avatar” sequel is due in 2016.
Lena Does Sia In A Sia Wig: Sia isn’t into showing her face while performing lately, but luckily, “Girls” star Lena Dunham is here to help. The actress performed an interesting version of the singer’s “Chandelier” on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” and it’s a definite sight to behold!
Taylor’s Crafts: It’s one thing to be Taylor Swift’s friend, but it’s a whole other thing when she makes you crafts! Please enjoy the needlepoint that the singer made for Ed Sheeran – complete with a Drake quote. Somewhere millions of Etsy people are drooling.
