All jokes aside, people aren’t sick of the Fast and Furious franchise yet. Just ask Vin Diesel, star of 2017’s Fate of the Furious and this year’s top-grossing actor. 

On Tuesday Forbes reported that Diesel earned an impressive $1.6 billion in global ticketing receipts in 2017, no doubt thanks to the eighth installment of the action franchise, which topped $1.2 billion in the global box office. 

Along with the Fast and Furious film Diesel also starred in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage this year.

Trailing close behind Diesel was his Fast and Furious co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, at $1.5 billion. (You may remember him from other, less successful 2017 films too, like Baywatch.

And Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot was the year’s third top-grossing actor (and top-grossing woman), bringing in an impressive $1.4 billion.

In addition to Wonder Woman, which dominated the box office — earning $100.5 million in ticket sales during its first week — Gadot also starred in Justice League.

What does all this prove? Big action films won’t be slowing down any time soon.

Ray Romano gets mad about Jon Hamm’s impression of him, which is very good

It’s hard to hate on Mad Men’s Jon Hamm.

But comedian Ray Romano took exception to Hamm’s impression of him on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.

“He’s handsome and he’s funny, that son of a bitch,” Romano joked.

You’re damn right. Maybe we should be angry at Hamm, despite all of his positive, redeeming qualities and impressive acting skills.

Lindsay Lohan’s MTV reality show teaser looks weirdly like a self-produced beauty vlog

Everyone’s favorite Parent Trap twin is a long way from Napa. Lindsay Lohan’s new MTV series Lohan Beach Club (working title)is taking the actress turned nightclub mogul to Mykonos, Greece.

The show’s exceptionally short first preview features Lohan proclaiming, “Pack your bags, MTV. We’re going to Mykonos!”—as well as a few lingering shots of (what appears to be) her newest nightclub location.

Few details about the series have been revealed, but MTV exec Nina Diaz promised viewers “a behind the scenes look at how a young, successful entrepreneur runs her empire.”

Lohan and longtime friend Tiffany Trump (yes, of the presidential Trumps) hung out in Mykonos late last week, but images of the two palling around have since been deleted. This could mean official series screen time for Tiffany, but only time will tell.

Lohan Beach Club is expected to premiere sometime in 2019.

Dennis Rodman Bombs Harder Than Ann Coulter at Bruce Willis Roast

HOLLYWOOD, California What on Earth was Dennis Rodman thinking?

“On Saturday night at the Hollywood Palladium, the man who helped bring Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un together became the latest in a long line of punching bags at The Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis. Willis may have been in the hot seat, but Rodmana last-minute addition to the daistook a lot of the heat.

Like Mike The Situation Sorrentino and Ann Coulter before him, Rodman was the latest non-comedian to experience what its like to not only bomb on a big stage but then get utterly destroyed by pros like Roastmaster General Jeff Ross, seasoned stand-ups Nikki Glaser and Lil Rel Howery and wildcards like perennial favorite Martha Stewart.

The nights roastmaster Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who played a younger version of Willis in Looper, got things started when he introduced peacemaker Rodman at the top of the show. Dennis may be the only person on the planet who can prevent a nuclear war, he remarked. So I guess this is goodbye.

Dennis is the only person who can wear a MAGA hat and have it be the least upsetting part of his wardrobe, Glaser joked during her hilarious set, adding that its fun to meet someone with whatever illness Roseanne has but in a giant black man.

When I look at Dennis, I immediately think of the N-word: nuclear war, Martha Stewart said when she took the podium. She went on to say that had someone told her in the 90s that in 2018 Rodman would be Americas last best hope to prevent nuclear war between the U.S. and North Korea, she would have said, Dennis Rodman is alive in 2018?

When the NBA champion finally took the podium near the end of the show, things got off to a rough start when he was apparently too tall for the mica stage manager had lower it and ask him to start over. He began by commenting on all the jokes throughout the night about who was the worst actor on the stage. You all are, he said. That was the punchline.

Rodman told Martha Stewart that the next time she goes to prison, she should call him. I will secure your release. Get it? Because he sort of helped get American detainees released from North Korea. Im fucking drunk, he added, out of nowhere, at one point.

Every time he failed to get a laugh for a joke, he would chuckle to himself and say, OK, on with the show. When he had to repeat a joke for the third time, he reminded the audience that hes never done this kind of thing before, saying, Let me get through this. It wasnt easy.

And then there was this joke directed at Willis, probably his best of the night: You keep making these bomb movies. But guess what? So does Kim Jong Un. But at least Kim is smart enough not to release his. Unfortunately, it seems as though Rodman was not smart enough to hire a competent comedian to write jokes for him.

Give it up for our next secretary of state, Dennis Rodman! Jeff Ross, who walked the red carpet as Kim Jong Un flanked by sexy female guards, said, following the man he referred to as Kim Jong Unintelligible. Marveling at the bizarre relationship between the two men, he added, You think Kim Jong Un is a nice guy and he thinks youre Scottie Pippen.

Of course, most of the nights jokes were directed at Willis. When I spoke to Ross at Comedy Centrals Clusterfest in San Francisco last month, he said that Willis told him I just want you to know, and tell everyone else, not to hold back. I want you guys to throw rocks, because Im going to throw them right back…..”
