Actually Don Cheadle, who I do Black Monday with, he’s the bad guy in Space Jam, and he said LeBron’s really great. He was great in Trainwreck, too.

Relatedly, Dave Filoni’s new Twitter banner has several outlets speculating The Clone Wars’ Captain Rex will be joining Ahsoka Tano in season two. It could just be Filoni joshing us all, or it could be concept art for some kind of flash-forward scene in Clone Wars’ last season. But you never know!

Star Trek: Picard

In conversation with Variety, Michael Chabon stated Picard will go in different directions under its new showrunner in season two.

It’s going to be different in some ways. It’s definitely going to go in directions that we didn’t see in Season 1. I think we’ve been emboldened in many ways by the popularity of the show. I’ve only done this once, but I would imagine it’s probably true for a lot of television shows especially in this era: Season 1 was in many respects about learning how to make Star Trek: Picard. Both in a production sense, but also in terms of storytelling and who our cast is, how these characters end up forming surprising links and attachments to each other.

It’s in a way that I think was probably true back with TNG and what I was talking about — everyone agrees, once Riker grew the beard, the show got better. It was because they learned what they had. Going forward, we’re only going to be doing more of what we did, with greater confidence and with a greater sense of what this show feels like when it’s firing on all engines.
