John Cena Says WWE Retirement ‘Is Coming’

John Cena is opening up about his final days in the WWE ahead of retirement.

“Extra’s” Mark Wright was chatting with Cena and Ariana DeBose about their new movie “Argylle,” when John reflected on getting ready to close his WWE chapter.

He said of WWE superstardom, “I wish I could do that infinitely, in perpetuity, forever. I wish I could be out in the middle of that ring in front of a live audience on ‘Live’ or ‘Smackdown’… There is no energy like that.”

The way he looks at it, “I think when you have to seriously take a look at yourself and realize like, ‘Hey, I haven’t lost my fast ball, but I’ve lost a few miles an hour off that fast ball’… [Athletes] have to face the truth sometimes that it is a young man’s game, and time is undefeated.”

He added, “When I can’t keep up, I should allow those who can the opportunity to do the opportunities the business gave me and I think that’s really, really important.”

Cena said, “WWE has been a big part of my life, but it does not define me… I just appreciate the chapter of the book and I appreciate all the business has given me.”

Referencing his more recent WWE appearances, John said, “A lot of times, I can’t control my emotions and I’ve always been that stoic virtuous character and… I’m just being more present and enjoying it but when the chapter closes it doesn’t mean the book is over.”

John and Ariana also dished on “Argylle,” an action flick about a novelist (Bryce Dallas Howard) who finds life imitating art when it comes to her books about espionage and her main character Agent Argylle (Henry Cavill).

Cena said of his character, “I’m a best friend and a sidekick and I’d like to think that I’m a good best friend and a great sidekick in life.” He went on to tease, “Within the pages of ‘Argylle’ there are worlds within worlds and… we might hold the record in this one for plot twists, so stay tuned.”

Ariana said her character “would have been the next Steve Jobs had she not chosen to go into the spy line of work… She’s got a lot of sass, a ton of ingenuity and great hair.”

While she plays a fearless character in the movie, DeBose also spoke about embodying that characteristic in real life.

“Being a public figure requires an amount of fearlessness… you never know what is going to come at you, so you just have to be ready to go,” she said, adding, “I also have a tattoo on my ribs that says fearless.”

She continued, “Everyone is going to have an opinion… For me, it is part of my character. You have to have undying belief in yourself and in the thing that you love that you are willing to go out there and be fearless and try anything and know that you aren’t going to be for everyone, but you will be for some people. But as long as you love what you do, none of that matters.”

“Argylle” is out February 2.

Snoop Dogg Says Tupac Would Be ‘Changing the World’ Today

 Snoop Dogg stepped out for the premiere of “Dear Mama,” the new five-part docuseries that explores the powerful bond between the late Tupac Shakur and his mother, the late Afeni Shakur.

“Extra” spoke with Snoop about why he wanted to be a part of the doc. He said, “Well, because it’s involving his mother and his story… His mother was a strong woman. I had a chance to get a relationship with her and to know her, to meet her, to have her be a part of my life, so I’m anxious to see what the story is about, and that relationship is so crucial to the world we live in right now with mother and son.”

Snoop shared how Afeni was an inspiration to him over the years.

He commented, “She was always a special woman, a strong woman, a strong Black woman. She led by example, so just having intimate conversation with her about, you know, what I was doing with my life and how I was trying to better myself and just giving me input on that I was doing the right thing and to continue to do what I was doing, so she was always strong and spiritual and inspirational to me.”

He reflected on what Tupac would be doing today to help change the world. He remarked, “Football leagues, philanthropy work, you know, changing the world, being a politician, being effective, being positive… I think that he would be doing the exact same things I’m doing, times two, because he was way ahead of the game before me, so I’m just doing some of the things that I think that he would be proud of.”

Snoop also dished on what we can expect from his own upcoming biopic, saying his sons won’t play him. He pointed out, “We’re gonna get some actors to play they part, you know what I’m saying? We’re gonna really go for the big swing on this one, you know? My life story… ain’t complete because it’s still happening, but at the same time, I feel like people need to know, you know, my humble beginnings, who I learned it from, who I got it from, and how I became who I am.”

“Dear Mama” debuts on FX April 21.

James Corden Reflects About the Last ‘Late Late Show’ Episodes

Over the weekend, James Corden was honored at PaleyFest L.A. 2023 as he preps to leave “The Late Late Show.”

“Extra’s” Rachel Lindsay spoke with an “emotional” Corden, who only has 12 shows left!

He said, “For so long, it felt it was a long way away, and then now it’s here.”

James admitted it was a “very, very strange feeling to be so close” to saying goodbye to the show.

Over eight hit seasons, James has had so many memorable moments, from star-packed Carpool Karaokes to Crosswalk Musicals.

Last year, Corden took a ride with Tom Cruise on a fighter jet! He commented, “It would be really hard to top in terms of danger and stunts that we’ve done before.”

Corden told “Extra” he has a few more big surprises planned for the last few shows.

Without saying too much, he teased, “You’ll have to wait and see.”

He added, “We have three ‘Carpools’ between now and then. The last one is gonna be very emotional… I spend the day as a Kardashians assistant, which I think will be fun.”

When asked what he’ll do on the day after his last show, Corden admitted, “I imagine I’ll be quite hung over.”

“That’s my hunch,” James commented. “I think I’ll be looking for some kind of bacon product.”

What will he miss most about the show? Corden answered, “I’ll miss my friends, who I love. I’ll miss them so much… and America. It’s an amazing place.”

Showing his appreciation for the U.S.A., James emphasized, “I love the optimism of the place. I love the notion that a chubby boy from High Wycombe can come here and be accepted in such a way. It’s the most incredible, creative place, and I hope it’s not done with me.”

Is Jennifer Aniston Ready to Join ‘White Lotus’ and Avenge Jennifer Coolidge’s Death?

 Jennifer Aniston stunned at the “Murder Mystery 2” premiere in L.A. Tuesday, wearing a silver minidress by Versace.

“Extra’s” Melvin Robert caught up with the star, who opened up about her friendship with co-star Adam, and whether they would ever remake a certain popular ‘70s sitcom.

Melvin also asked Aniston about wanting to join “The White Lotus” Season 3 to avenge the death of Jennifer Coolidge’s character last season!

Chatting about Sandler, Melvin pointed out that Aniston often says their relationship is like siblings, asking who would be the oldest?

Aniston revealed, “Adam. And yet the youngest at the same time. It’s hard to tell.”

Robert added, “I understand you were a mobile pharmacy on the set, taking care of him, making him smoothies. What kind of smoothies were you making him?”

She explained, “Usually Vital Proteins powder, spinach, berries, cacao, couple almonds, a lot of ingredients.”

Jen is looking good at 54, and Melvin asked if Chinese herbs are the secret to her youthful look.

She said, “I don’t know if that’s the secret, but I do love having an arsenal… If you’re getting run down, I’m here at your service.”

“The Morning Show” star is a huge fan of another star, Jennifer Coolidge, and her show, “The White Lotus,” and has even talked about avenging her character’s death.

Is there any chance Aniston would join “The White Lotus”? She said, “I would love to… How do you stop watching and loving Jennifer Coolidge? She’s a gift to all of us.”

She added, “She was on ‘Friends’ way back in the day… We’ve loved her a long time.”

And we love Jen and Adam together and Adam with his other frequent collaborator Drew Barrymore… so could we see the three of them work together?

Mel asked about Drew, Jen and Adam remaking “Three’s Company,” adding, “Suzanne Somers says she’d love for you to play Chrissy.”

Jen asked, “She would?” adding, “Well, if Suzanne says it, come on, gotta do what Suzanne says.”

“Murder Mystery 2” premieres March 31 on Netflix.

Zachary Levi on ‘Shazam 2’ Brawl with Helen Mirren & Her Broken Pinky

Zachary Levi is suiting up again in “Shazam! Fury of the Gods,” this time taking on a trio of villains played by Dame Helen Mirren, Lucy Liu and Rachel Zegler.

“Extra’s” Terri Seymour spoke with Levi about going head-to-head with Mirren and an injury she suffered during filming.

Of their fight sequence, Zachary noted that it “doesn’t really get cooler than that,” adding, “We beat the crap out of each other and she was so about it.”

That massive brawl lead to Helen injuring her pinky — but nobody knew about it until recently!

Zachary commented, “I found out with the rest of the world when she was on ‘Graham Norton,’ so I had no idea this was even happening. But she’s such a trouper. She just kept pushing right through it.”

Zachary praised Helen, saying, “She’s everything you want her to be, she’s everything you think, everything you think she could be and what you, you hope that she’s gonna be. And then some, really… She’s a dame, but doesn’t throw that around, she’s just super chill and cool and grounded and humble and collaborative and brings such a grace and a calming presence wherever she goes… You just feel like you’re in really safe, good hands with her.”

As for returning to the “Shazam” world as Shazam aka Billy Batson, Levi commented, “It’s so great. I was so grateful and so blessed that I got the job to begin with in the first one. We had so much fun making the first one and are so grateful for everyone who went out and saw the movie both in the theaters and then later, and supported us and have continued to support me… The fact that we got a sequel is just such a huge win, and I’m really grateful that we get to run this back, that I get to play this character more because it’s so fun.”

In the new movie, Levi’s Shazam is feeling like a fraud, which he said was fun for him to play. He said, “It doesn’t take much to tap into one’s own imposter syndrome… As an actor, I don’t know, you’re always kind of wondering, ‘Is this good, Am I not? Do people enjoy this?’ I go and try and find that and recognize that Billy, like everybody else, is trying to find his place in the world and wants to be the best brother and the best son and the best leader and all these things that he can be… It’s fun being able to kind of tap into more human moments like that.”

If there is a third “Shazam!” movie, where would he like it to go?
Zachary answered, “I would like to see the Shazamily taking on the undead, like hordes of the undead that are just coming at them. I think that would be fun.”

He went on, “With these movies, you gotta have a villain… It’s tough,, though because you don’t want to make it, you know, regular human beings, you don’t wanna be going and killing a bunch of human beings, or whatever. Like, who can you lay waste to that as the audience, you’re not totally, like, you know, alienating everybody? And that’s why oftentimes you have aliens or you have robots or you have things like that, but I’ve never seen the undead. I really want to see that.”

As for who could play the next baddie, Levi suggested a British actor. He pointed out, “The Brits always play good foils. You know, it’s ‘Star Wars,’ you guys are always the bad guys, so I don’t know. I haven’t really got so far as to who that character who would play that character would be but I think in a general premise, I think zombies would be a lot of fun to kill.”

Levi isn’t sure when a third movie could come out, noting, “We gotta go tell people to watch this one.” He added that it’s up to the bosses to determine the future of the franchise.

Could Shazam appear in any other upcoming movies? Zachary played coy, saying, “I don’t know. Way above my pay grade.”
Regardless of who he is killing, Zachary has to be in Shazam shape. Of his workout routine for the second movie, he dished, “I mean, the first time was a little more intense because I had to put on weight that I had never really had before. I was always about 200 lbs. most of my life… and I put on about 20 more lbs. for the first film. Then I just tried to maintain that as best I could, but that still requires, you know, 45 days in the gym and 4,000, 5,000 calories a day, which is really the worst part of the whole deal.”

Along with working out, Levi ate “boring calories,” like chicken and broccoli.

Zachary loves to challenge himself, so what was the most challenging part of the movie? He answered, “The most challenging part of this movie was the harness work. Every time you’re flying, you have to wear these incredibly tight harnesses that might as well just be diapers that are torture diapers, basically. That’s what they are and, so, those suck and they hurt a lot and they chafe and they bruise and they cut and they do all these things.”

“Shazam! Fury of the Gods” is in theaters March 17.

Former Latin Grammy Executive Director Needs A Lifesaving Kidney Transplant.  Can You Help Him?


Paul Dooley CEO and Founder of the 501c3 nonprofit organization said “Sergio, a 70-year-old Former Latin Grammy Executive Director needs a lifesaving kidney donor ASAP.

Though he is a giant in the Latin Music Industry, working with Julio Iglesias, Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, Luis Miguel, Don Francisco, and many others, Sergio humbly describes himself on as “I am a father of 5 and also a grandfather (Zeide) to 4 adorable little ones, who currently live in Georgia. I have been with my wife for 25 years. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and came to the U.S. at a very young age. I live in South Florida now.”  We have an urgent plea for people to register as kidney donors on to see if they are a match to help save Sergio.”

Here is Sergio’s Wikipedia page that has a very interesting complete bio on Sergio

In the United States Hispanic/Latino patients with end-stage renal disease are disproportionately less likely to get a kidney transplant on the government’s organ transplant list, and specifically, a living donor kidney transplant (LDKT); fewer Hispanics received a LDKT than non-Hispanic whites 4% versus 10%. compared to non-Hispanic whites.

Sergio, Paul Dooley and many of our other patients and donors are also willing to be interviewed by the press. Please contact me for their contact information by calling Paul Dooley at or call 781-821-2204 ext. 1.

Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ Mentor Says She Saw No Signs of Trouble

Stephen “tWitch” Boss died by suicide this week.

On Thursday, “Extra’s” Billy Bush spoke to one of his teachers, Dr. Tommie Tonea Stewart, an actor and former dean of the Department of Theatre Arts at Alabama State University.

Earlier this year, tWitch and Dr. Stewart had an emotional reunion on “Today.”

After news broke about his death, Dr. Stewart admitted, “It’s a strangeness; it’s a heavy feeling on the insides. I feel like I am just trembling, but I can’t feel any more detriment than his mother, Connie.”

Dr. Stewart described Connie as a “beautiful person,” saying, “I hate for her to suffer through this.”

When Billy brought up the idea that people might not have really known tWitch, Dr. Stewart stressed, “But you did know. What you saw of tWitch was who he really was and who he is to me… Stephen Boss was always pleasant, always smiling, always ready to help and inspire other people. He is a person of love, a very giving person. He will be greatly, greatly missed.”

She added, “Many of the young people who were in the summer camp with him when we started years ago, they called and they said they want to plan a memorial in his honor in Montgomery. I told them to get started.”

Dr. Stewart saw “no” signs of “personality problems” from tWitch. She elaborated, “Even when they announced the ending of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ he called and he said, ‘What do you think of that?’ I said, ‘You know what? When one door closes, another one opens.’ He said, ‘You are right.’ Then he called back to tell me he was going to be a producer on the show. I said, ‘You see that? See.’”

“I never had any inkling that there was anything that would cause him to take his life,” Dr. Stewart stressed. “This man loved his family. He loved his wife… and his mother.”

While tWitch has credited Dr. Stewart with having a major impact on his career, she pointed out that he gave her “validation” that she was doing the right thing.

She went on, “He gave me the reassurance that when I looked at students, talked to students, attempted to encourage them, that I was being the vessel that God meant for me to be because so many would say that their day job is getting in the way, you need to pursue your acting career… Being that vessel, tWitch reassured me… When they call and I give them my point of view, they always made me feel like they had a sense of relief because they called, and tWitch always, always made me feel like whatever I said to him that day helped.”

Getting emotional, Dr. Stewart emphasized, “I’ve searched my phone to try to see, had he called in the last week. I couldn’t find evidence that he called. I would really be horrified to think I missed that call… I really believe that something that is really, really wrong that I had no understanding of and I doubt his mother or his wife had an understanding of it either. I can’t even see or trust that he committed suicide.”

Dr. Stewart also had a message, saying, “I want to thank all of his fans, and his extended family, his schoolmates, and partners in the work and the partners at the network, and thank Ellen DeGeneres… He was so comfortable in knowing that she loved him so much.”
