Get ready for a big ‘90s boy band tour kick: New Kids On The Block, Boyz II Men, and 98 Degrees are all headed on the road together. Depending on who you are, this is either the best or the worst thing ever. (Vulture)

Gerard Butler is taking on a well-dressed group of terrorists in the upcoming “Olympus Has Fallen,” which is about an attack on the White House and a subsequent kidnapping of the Commander in Chief. The trailer is that seamless mix of both expected imagery (though the image of a plane hitting a tower-like structure still sears) and unexpected twists (the gorgeous snowy opening; Morgan Freeman playing the interim President); here’s hoping the film isn’t a bunch of jingoistic rah-rah and actually focuses on the international consequences of that particular doomsday domestic crisis.

“2 Broke Girls”? 2 CHAINZ. That’s right; the rapper’s making an appearance on the CBS comedy on the episode after the Grammys. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Veteran actress Marcia Gay Harden is headed to HBO’s “The Newsroom.” Here’s hoping some new blood will help beef up the well, let’s say “uneven” show. (TVLine)

Not even James Van Der Beek could save this one: “Don’t Trust The B In Apt. 23” has been pulled from ABC’s primetime schedule. No word on whether it’s been officially cancelled, though the show’s remaining episodes don’t have air dates, so it’s probably only a matter of time. (EW)
