'The Prom' Gets First Trailer Featuring Star-Studded Cast - Watch Now!

The first trailer for Ryan Murphy‘s The Prom is finally here!

The star-studded cast for the film includes Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, Andrew Rannells, Keegan-Michael Key, Kerry Washington, Ariana DeBose, and newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman.

Here is the synopsis: Dee Dee Allen (Streep) and Barry Glickman (Corden) are New York City stage stars with a crisis on their hands: their expensive new Broadway show is a major flop that has suddenly flatlined their careers. Meanwhile, in small-town Indiana, high school student Emma Nolan (Pellman) is experiencing a very different kind of heartbreak: despite the support of the high school principal (Key), the head of the PTA (Washington) has banned her from attending the prom with her girlfriend, Alyssa (DeBose).

When Dee Dee and Barry decide that Emma’s predicament is the perfect cause to help resurrect their public images, they hit the road with Angie (Kidman) and Trent (Rannells), another pair of cynical actors looking for a professional lift. But when their self-absorbed celebrity activism unexpectedly backfires, the foursome find their own lives upended as they rally to give Emma a night where she can truly celebrate who she is.

The Prom will be released on Netflix on December 11!

Kerry Washington Was Asked If Olivia Pope Would Ever Moderate a Presidential Debate

Not a lot of people were impressed with Chris Wallace‘s job as moderator during the Presidential debate.

Kerry Washington was one of those people.

“What is happening?! Is there an understudy who can step in and play the role of moderator?! #debates,” the Little Fires Everywhere star first tweeted about his role in the debate, questioning what he was doing.

After her tweet, a fan asked Kerry if Olivia Pope, her Scandal character, would consider moderating one in the future, and she had a great answer.

“There’s not enough wine in the whole wide world!!!!!!!!! #Debates2020″ she answered, adding the exclamation points for emphasis that it wasn’t an option for her character, or even for her..

Kerry did take part in the Democratic National Convention earlier this year as a host during the third night.

During their chat, Kerry explained how she teaches her kids – daughter Isabelle, 6, and son Caleb, 23 months – about racial injustice.

“I want my kids to know that I am fully present as they’re exploring those ideas, too,” Kerry shared. “In a lot of ways, I have to make sure that I am taking care of myself as I’m having these conversations and, just on a daily basis, doing what I need to do to stay calm and to stay present and stay informed. So that I can really be there for them as the world unfolds around them.”

Kerry continued, “I wear the Breonna Taylor T-Shirt, you know, ‘Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.’ So if I’m going to wear that, which I do proudly, I’d be ready to have that conversation in my house and answer those questions.”

Kerry went on to say that she also tries to be a good listener when she talks with her kids.

“Such a big part of it is knowing who your kid is and as you’re having the conversation, like watching and listening for the cues to be present for this stuff,” Kerry said. “A lot of us remember the moment in our own childhoods when we were first confronted with negative views about race with racism, with institutionalized racism.”

During another recent interview, Kerry admitted that she still gets nervous going for scooter rides with her kids in her own neighborhood.
