Although the rest of filming was peaceful -- not least because the two were separated at all times and escorted by security -- Crawford was soon fired from the Riggs role, something that not even Gibson managed. He's being replaced by a new character played by Stifler himself, Seann William Scott. The curse is real.
The Great British Bake Off Tried To Extort The BBC ... And Failed
In an age marked by reality shows populated entirely by people you wouldn't sit next to on the bus, The Great British Bake Off is a much-needed anomaly. There's no blood, no sex, and no C-words, unless that word is "cake." And this simple slice of niceness is why it's one of the most popular television shows on the planet right now. It's too bad, then, that the makers of GBBO were so buoyed by their success that they felt they had the stones and gumption necessary to extort the mighty BBC.
Spoilers: They did not.
In 2016, Love Productions demanded around $32 million to keep GBBO on the BBC, or else they'd GTFO, a decision in part inspired by the fact that the channel had started airing a series of other GBBO-esque reality shows not made by Love. You might be thinking "Wait, doesn't that make the show more expendable?" and that was apparently the BBC's line of thinking too, because they told Love to get lost.
At this point, Love Productions signed a juicy contract with another broadcaster. They forgot two important things, though: 1) The show's biggest draw wasn't cakes, shockingly, but the lovely ensemble of presenters and judges, and 2) They should have renewed the contracts with said presenters and judges before this brouhaha kicked off. Out of loyalty to the BBC, and a little annoyed by Love's money-grasping, everyone except one judge walked away from the show, meaning that Love had to scramble to find a new, instantly lovable cast. Instead, returning host Paul Hollywood now teams up with Your Old School Principal, Off-Brand Russell Brand, and Sandi Toksvig, whom we've nothing against.
