Tessa Thompson’s ‘Thor: Ragnorok’ wig had an astronomical price tag

TwitterFacebook

Tessa Thompson is a national treasure worth her weight in gold. 

And that’s basically what her Thor: Ragnorok wig cost, according to a new Huffington Post interview with her Sorry to Bother You director Boots Riley. 

The shoot for the surreal indie comedy co-starring Thompson apparently conflicted with Marvel’s reshoots for Ragnorok. But the two characters couldn’t have had more different hair styles, with Valkyrie rocking a pragmatic yet elegant flowing ponytail, and Detroit slaying with short, colorful ringlets. Read more…

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir Can’t Convince Ellen DeGeneres They’re Not Dating

Although Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have emphatically denied that they’re dating, they couldn’t convince Ellen DeGeneres otherwise.

The Canadian ice dancing pair, who captured the hearts and hopes of Winter Olympics viewers everywhere this year with their sizzling chemistry and risqué routines, have long been speculated to be in a relationship, something that they both deny. After the two-time Olympic gold medalists’ fans campaigned on social media for the couple to appear on The Ellen Show, DeGeneres wasted no time in asking the burning question that everyone wanted to know: “Are you a couple?”

To the disappointment of fans everywhere, Virtue responded that they were not, noting that it was “a compliment…that people feel invested in our partnership is truly remarkable.”

Virtue also joked that if the pair were a couple, The Ellen Show would be the perfect place to reveal it to the world.

Virtue and Moir, who have known each other for 20 years, also obliged DeGeneres by playing a game of “The Definitely Not Dating Game,” where they had to guess each other’s answers to questions like: “What is Tessa’s guilty pleasure?” or “Does Scott like to wear boxers or briefs?” For a couple that denies being in a relationship, Tessa and Scott were uncannily accurate with their answers.

Tessa Thompson To Play Jewel Thief Doris Payne In New Movie

Tessa Thompson will step into the role of real life African American jewel thief Doris Payne, who gained notoriety for her luxury jewelry heists from stores around the world.

Thompson, whose credits include Thor: Ragnarok, Creed, and  Westworld will also produce the currently untitled film with Codeblack Films’ Jeff Clanagan. Codeblack is launching the project after having obtained Payne’s life rights, reports Variety.

Payne, now 87, has been in the heist business for six decades. Her method would usually involve her entering high-end stores and posing as a wealthy woman looking for a diamond ring. She would ask to see a tray of items, and through the gift of gab, cause the clerk to forget how many pieces were outside the cases, allowing her to leave with one or two.

The film is conceived as a high-concept action-drama in the vein of Catch Me if You Can and The Thomas Crown Affair, according to Variety. Codeblack Films’ Candice Wilson will oversee the project.

Payne has been arrested multiple times and has admitted to having used 20 aliases, 10 Social Security numbers, and nine dates of birth.

She was the subject of a 2013 documentary, “The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne,” where she described in detail many of her crimes, from the earliest thefts in her youth, up to her arrest in 2011 for stealing a diamond ring from a Macy’s department store. The trial for this crime was chronicled in the documentary, and her last interview in the film took place in prison.

Codeblack Films, which is part of Lionsgate, also has an Angela Davis biopic in active development. Its drama Traffik — starring Paula Patton, Omar Epps, Roselyn Sanchez, and Laz Alonso — opens April 27.
