According to The Hollywood Reporter, Streep’s Mary Louise is concerned for her grandchildren in the wake of his death, and she’s arrived in Monterey in search of answers.

As The Playlist pointed out on Twitter, Streep and Skarsgård already have an onscreen connection … sort of.

The new season of Love Island — which began one week ago — kicked off with the arrival of 11 strangers comprising six men and five women.

“The length of Kenan Thompson’s tenure on Saturday Night Live has become a running joke on Saturday Night Live. And he knows it.

During Donald Glover’s recent monologue, Thompson acknowledged just how long it’s been since he first auditioned in 2003. After entering his 15th season in 2017, he became the longest-serving cast member, dethroning previous record holder Darrell Hammond.
