1. Seth Rogen Scores at the Box Office

This is not the end for This Is the End.

Since opening last week, the film has earned $33 million at the box office, making it one of the biggest hit comedies of the year.

Written and directed by Jewish entertainers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the apocalyptic comedy stars Rogen and quite a few of his famous friends, including James Franco, Jonah Hill and Craig Robinson. The A-listers all play “themselves” and fight to survive after the apocalypse strikes while they’re at a Hollywood party. While that shindig may have been over, Rogen’s run at the box office is definitely not!

 

2. Ben Savage Gets the Green Light

Girl Meets World is officially a go! The spin-off of the popular ‘90s series, Boy Meets World, was picked up by the Disney Channel this week.

The original series followed Cory Matthews (played by Ben Savage, who is Jewish) through the trials and tribulations of growing up, but this new series will reunite Savage with his on-screen sweetheart, Danielle Fishel, as the parents of a tween daughter – hence the “Girl” Meets World title.

Twenty-somethings everywhere have been buzzing about the ’90s sitcom reboot since news of the pilot broke late last year. Looks like there is now reason to keep buzzing!

 

3. Amanda Bynes Makes a Rare Apology

Pay attention because this doesn’t happen often! In a rare move, Amanda Bynes apologized to Drake (her former celebrity crush) for calling him “ugly” on Twitter.

The Jewish actress Tweeted, “I’m sorry about the Tweets I said about Drake. I didn’t mean what I said. I hope to become friends with him instead of smashing him!”

So, with this apology in mind, is the 27-year-old turning a corner? Perhaps not. She Tweeted yesterday, “I don’t like leading people on. I will not date @drake ever. I only want to be his friend. I’m sorry that I insult him but it’s hard not to!” Something tells us Drake is now waiting for her phone call…
