ABOVE: The shorts never stood a chance.
VARIETY: If the header below doesn't sell Jonathan Majors's bodybuilding drama, nothing will.
THE GUARDIAN: Another new movie at Sundance comes as a surprise. Doug Liman has unveiled a secretly directed doc on the sexual-abuse allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, who is now a for-life SCOTUS justice. Justice promises to delve into the credible allegations made by Deborah Ramirez, as well as to expose how incompetent (intentionally?) the FBI was in so much as examining the evidence.
And don't get me started on who paid off his debts!
UPTOWN PLAYERS: From movies to plays: The ubertalented Michael Urie (his work in Buyer & Cellar is among the best I've ever seen in any live production) is directing Silver Foxes for Uptown Players in Dallas. The play is a comedy about three queer seniors who rescue their pal from a (homophobic) old folks' home, assisting him with living his life! Sounds like a Golden Girls episode, and that isn't far off — the play is written by James Berg and Stan Zimmerman, who wrote for The Golden Girls (and Roseanne, Fame, Brothers, Gilmore Girls, Wanda at Large).
Silver Foxes, which I like to call The Sunshine Fuckbois,runs March 2-12 here.

RISK MAG: The Zakar Twins show plenty in front, and plenty behind:
GR8ERDAYS: Simple Minds making a comeback, David Crosby's greatest hits and a memoir from 93-year-old Bonnie Bartlett on her initially open marriage to 95-year-old William Daniels. (They've been married over 70 years.)
