Rebel Wilson's newest flick, Isn't It Romantic just premiered yesterday. Leading up to the movie's release, Wilson made a point to comment on the casting of her character's best friend.


The movie tells the story of Natalie (Wilson) getting knocked out and waking up in the middle of a romantic comedy.

Like any good rom-com, the leading lady has a fabulous gay best friend. However, unlike previous movies of the genre, Wilson wanted her best friend character to make a statement.

The best friend character was eventually named Donny.

He is described as Natalie's,

"gay sidekick, who's setting gay rights back, like, a hundred years."

This character description is completely intentional. Rebel explained that Isn't It Romantic,

"make[s] a really clever comment about how gay characters have been marginalized in the past few decades."

She went on to say,

"It was really important to me that obviously we cast an openly gay actor for the role of Donny so that the character could not in any way be construed as mocking a gay guy,"

So who better to play this complex, statement-making gay best friend? Brandon Scott Jones of The Good Place fame nabbed the role of Donny.

Even before the movie was released, people were thrilled to see him in the movie.





Those who nabbed tickets to the movie's opening night are only confirming that Jones was the perfect choice for Donny.





Check out Isn't It Romantic at a theater near you! Otherwise, catch it on Netflix on February 28th.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
