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.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
