Just days before Season 3 of “The Mandalorian” dropped on Disney+, Jon Favreau says he’s already written Season 4! He said he wrote it while Season 3 was in post-production because he wanted to make sure the series feels “like a continuation and one full story.” However, Disney hasn’t announced there WILL be a Season 4 just yet. Meantime, Jason Sudeikis said the upcoming third season of “Ted Lasso” will be the last. He told “Deadline,” “This is the end of this story that we wanted to tell, that we were hoping to tell, that we loved to tell. The fact that folks will want more and are curious beyond more than what they don’t even know yet – that being season three – it’s flattering. Maybe by May 31, once all 12 episodes of the season [have been released], they’re like, ‘Man, you know what, we get it, we’re fine. We don’t need anymore, we got it.’” By the way, Jason is getting $1M/episode for the final season of “Ted Lasso.”

At the beginning of 2022, Matthew Lawrence was going through an ugly divorce from Cheryl Burke. By the end of the year, he was head over heels in love with Chilli from TLC! The two of them were on the same flight and the connection was immediate. In fact, by the time Matthew landed, he told his brother Andy, “You’re not gonna believe it! I met the most wonderful person!” Matthew told Entertainment Tonight that he and Chilli — whose real name is Rozonda Thomas — are trying to start a family. Matthew has never had children. Chilli has a 25-year-old son named Tron with her ex Dallas Austin.

German scientists have discovered a new substance that is so deadly to fungi that they’ve named it after Keanu Reeves! The co-author of the study said, “The lipopeptides kill so efficiently that we named them after Keanu Reeves because he, too, is extremely deadly in his roles.” “Keanumycins” are proving to be effective against gray mold rot on hydrangea leaves. They’re also biodegradable and leave no permanent residues in the soil. A Reddit user asked Keanu about the honor and he said, “They should’ve called it John Wick…but that’s pretty cool and surreal for me. But thanks, scientist people! Good luck and thank you for helping us!”

Johnny Depp has been quietly making a lot of money selling his art at a gallery in London. He just sold out of his “Friends & Heroes II” collection that is made up of four portraits Johnny painted of Bob Marley, Heath Ledger, River Phoenix, and his favorite writer Hunter S. Thompson. The gallery has now sold out of all the prints of the individual portraits, which sold for roughly $4500 each. A framed set of all four is still available for about $17K. Back in July, Johnny earned over $3.6M from his first “Friends & Heroes” collection, which sold out almost immediately. That collection featured four portraits of Bob Dylan, Elizabeth Taylor, Al Pacino and Keith Richards.

The day after she was photographed hugging Tyga outside Nobu, Avril Lavigne’s rep announced her engagement to Mod Sun was over. That was news to us AND to Mod Sun. Two weeks later, Avril and Tyga are loving it up in Paris, the city where Mod Sun proposed to her last April. They’ve been sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week, holding hands walking in and out of after parties, and now photographed getting kissy-faced in the club. Does this feel fake to anybody else but me?
