We’ve got two new agents!
Agent Carter is going to have one really fantastic and hot lineup. Chad Michael Murray and Enver Gjokaj have joined the cast as series regulars. Yes, that’s right, Murray actually scored a huge role instead of a guest appearance or cameo! (Ladies, you can start taking out your CMM posters from the boxes under your bed..)

One Tree Hill alum, Murray, will play Agent Jack Thompson. Dollhouse alum, Gjokja, will play Agent Daniel Sousa. They join Marvel Cinematic Universe carryovers Hayley Atwell and Dominic Cooper. Atwell’s character, Agent Carter will meet both characters at the Strategic Scientific Reserve in New York City.
We first met Agent Carter in “Captain America; The First Avenger” and the show takes place a year after those events. It follows Steve Rogers’ girlfriend, Carter, as she builds her career, while he’s frozen in ice.
“Working for the covert SSR, Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life — Steve Rogers,” reads a description.
The show will reveal her role as founder of SHIELD. It’s set in the year 1946. The 13-episode show is set to air in 2015 during the Marvels Agents of SHIELD hiatus.

Tayshia Adams Reportedly Replacing Clare Crawley on Upcoming Season 18 of ‘The Bachelorette’ – What Went Down?
This is the most dramatic season of The Bachelorette, and it hasn’t even started yet!
In addition to production delays brought upon by the coronavirus pandemic, sources say that Clare Crawley is stepping down as the upcoming Bachelorette.
According to E! News, Bachelor in Paradise alum Tayshia Adams will step into the light as the upcoming Bachelorette.
“The producers have told her that the season will still lead with Clare and her short-lived journey, and will show Clare falling in love with one of her suitors,” sources said. “Clare will then conclude her journey and announce that Tayshia is the lead.”
Deadline reports Clare fell in love with Dale Moss early on and left the show, but the producers have decided to allow her to journey to pan out before handing over the reigns to Adams.
Season 18 began production in early August, a few months delayed because of the pandemic. Safety measures have been put in place to keep the crew and cast safe.
With many travel restrictions still in place, the upcoming season will move away from the Bachelor mansion. Instead, it’ll be shot at a resort in Palm Springs, California, where the cast and crew will be staying for the whole season run, per ET.
Rumors began swirling earlier this week after Clare, the oldest Bachelorette in history at 39, reportedly liked and unliked a tweet about Tayshia taking her spot.
Since production, none of the contestants are supposed to have their phones, which led Bachelor Nation to believe that Crawley was no longer part of the series.
E! notes that ABC declined to comment.
Deadline also reports that since this is such a new predicament, the suitors that Clare eliminated will be allowed to return for a shot at love with Adams.
In total, there are 42 willing and available suitors looking for a chance at true love; 25 of them are new, 17 carried over from the first round.
If the reports are true, Adams will become the second-ever Black lead on the franchise next to season 13’s Rachel Lindsay. The Bachelor, which was previously criticized for its lack of diversity, is also introducing the first ever Black Bachelor lead with Matt James.
Adams first appeared in the franchise on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor.
This MTV Board Game Is Here to Test Your Musical Knowledge
If you’re patiently waiting for the MTV VMAs to air on August 30, we have something that might make the time pass faster and give you something to do with friends and family during quarantine.
Big Potato’s brand-new game for music lovers called “MTV, The Throwback Music Party Game” is here to test your musical knowledge.
“Switch over to a music party game for adults and teens that’s filled with all the biggest hits from the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s. It’s time for a blast from the past, specially made for the MTV generation,” the game description reads.
In order to play, you must break up into to separate teams and get ready to go through your whole musical catalog!
To win the game, you have to be the first team to collect all the awards from the eight categories: The Brits, Award-Winning Videos, Best of Unplugged, Pop Anthems, Hip Hop Hits, Headbangers, Teenage Angst, and Queens of MTV.
There are a few rounds including the “quick-fire buzzer round,” which requires one member from each team to face off head-to-head as they try to think of a song that fits the description of their specific category in 15-seconds.
The first person to run out of time loses this round, giving the winning team an advantage into the Artist Round.
There’s also an “artist round,” that requires your team to guess three songs in 30 seconds. You can give clues using one word, speaking the lyrics, or belting out the song at full volume.
The game is suitable for all ages, but I think those who grew up watching MTV, Total Request Live, and all the award shows will strike gold!
If you want your MTV, the game retails for $20 at Target, but you have to wait a bit because it’s currently “sold out.”
You’re Going to Want These Festive ‘Elf’ Coffee Creamers When the Holidays Roll Around
If you think it’s too soon to talk about Christmas in July, you’re right. But how am I not supposed to talk about Christmas when International Delight just announced that’s its preparing to unleash the best new item for the holiday season: Elf-inspired coffee creamer!
The Instagram account @candyhunting gave followers a sneak peak at the new creamer.
The Elf packaging envelops three different flavors.
The yellowish bottle will feature the new flavor, caramel waffle cookie.
Seasonal favorite peppermint mocha will be available in the red bottle.
And lastly, frosted sugar cookie will be at your disposable in the green bottle.

International Delight is bringing Elf to the refrigerated shelf! New Caramel Waffle Cookie (think stroopwafel) creamer is joining returning Peppermint Mocha and Frosted Sugar Cookie with new Elf designs! These are already starting to hit shelves, so be on the lookout. Huge thanks to International Delight's PR group for sending the creamers!
“These are already starting to hit shelves, so be on the lookout,” Candy Hunting wrote in the caption of the post: “Huge thanks to International Delight’s PR group for sending the creamers!”
You know it’s serious when we haven’t even passed Halloween and yet people are scavenging for holiday coffee creamers to add to their iced coffee.
You would think that since the flavors are inspired by the 2003 hit film, the flavors would be a bit more on-par with Buddy’s taste buds.
One comment even pointed out the huge oversight on the company’s part writing: “What an opportunity for maple syrup and they didn’t take it!”
While it makes sense, I doubt the flavor would go over too well with the general public. Though, no judgement if you’re into that sorta thing.
Another user referenced a classic line in the film with the comment: “I wonder if these make the world’s best cup of coffee.”
Which one do you want to try eventually when the holiday season rolls around?
And…. is it too early to curl up on the couch and watch Elf? Asking for a friend, obviously.
