Tyra Banks Will Revisit Her Role As Eve In the 'Life-Size' Sequel

Tyra Banks has confirmed that she will be returning to the screen as Eve in the Life-Size sequel. 

It's been nearly sixteen years since the Disney Channel movie, Life-Size first hit the screen, and after many years of teasing for a follow-up, it looks like fans will finally be getting a sequel, Variety reports. And as if no time has passed, it's been confirmed that Tyra Banks will be revisiting her role as Eve.

It's been a while, so for a quick recap, Life-Size tells the tale of a young Casey played by Lindsay Lohan who wishes for her deceased mother to come back to life. Things get a little mixed up and instead of her mother, it's Casey's unwanted doll Eve that returns to life. Tyra's character lights up the scene, changing Casey and everyone else's perspective as well as wardrobe.

When rumors of a possible sequel hit the Internet, fans were unsure if Tyra would return to her beloved role, but the supermodel said, "There is no one else that can play Eve but me, thank you very much! I'm just joking with you, but yes, I am going to be Eve."

As for her co-star Lindsay Lohan, little to no details have been released on her return or other casting for the film. "We have not talked about casting at all so I have no idea who is going to be the young person that will be the owner of Eve. We haven't gotten to that," Banks revealed.

As far as where the film will pick up from and where the storyline will take Eve is still unclear. It looks like we'll just have to wait until its likely premiere some time in late 2016. No matter where life takes Eve, there's no doubt she will be shining bright.

FX's ‘Pose’ Unveils Gripping Season 2 Trailer

Pose fans’ patience will be alleviated with the second season's premiere next month. To get viewers ready, FX debuted its 45-second trailer on Thursday (May 23), packed with an array of moving storylines.

Set in New York City’s ‘90s time period, the characters will explore life-altering changes in their careers and health. For Blanca, the status of her HIV-positive diagnosis will take precedence as the House of Evangelista begins to navigate a newfound arena of prominence in the ballroom scene.

In an interview with Billboard, producer and activist Janet Mock dished on what to expect for the upcoming season. "There's a rule in the writers' room that we do not talk about what we're going to do, but I think that it's really going deeper every episode,” Mock said. “As viewers kind of notice, we tend to focus in on a character that we may not have known as much before, right? For example, this week will really be central around Lil Papi’s character, his relationship with Blanca and things [that] have been alluded about throughout the season. There will be some of the origins stories of characters that we may not have heard as much from before, but whom people of course love because they are either on Team Abundance or Team Evangelista.”

Ahead of its June 11 return on FX (10 p.m. EST), watch the trailer above.

Kanye West To David Letterman: Liberals Are Bullying Donald Trump Supporters

Ahead of David Letterman’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction return to Netflix (May 31), details about the veteran interviewer’s upcoming conversation with Kanye West has hit the Internet. According to The Daily Beast, the pair discuss mental health, Drake fallout, and his views on Donald Trump.

In 2018, West used various platforms from TMZ to his personal Twitter account to express his controversial and political standing as it relates to his support of Trump. While he caught flack for it, West told Letterman that everyone should have the right to stand tall in their beliefs.

“This is like my thing with Trump—we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” he said. The father-of-four also admitted that he’s “never voted in my life,” and that those who cast a ballot for Trump were “treated like enemies of America because that’s what they felt.” He added that “Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters!”

The Daily Beast also reported on West’s address of mental health. Here, he pinpointed how the masses interpreted his statements, inadvertently referring to his viral interview on TMZ. “When you’re bipolar, you have the potential to ramp up and it can take you to a point where you start acting erratic, as TMZ would put it,” he said. West continued to unpack his views on mental health, saying, “If you guys want these crazy ideas and these crazy stages and this crazy music and this crazy way of thinking, there’s a chance it might come from a crazy person."

In an interview with Willie Geist of “Sunday Today,” Letterman said he didn’t know what to expect ahead of his sit-down with the Ye rapper. “I was frightened honestly because I had only met him a couple of times on the show, and I knew that depending on the day, you weren’t quite sure which path you were going to be on,” he said.
