“Will You Wear A Mask? I Ask” Performed By Mark Hamill

The legendary Mark Hamill used his incredible voice acting skills to perform the lines of the characters in the illustrated book “Will You Wear a Mask” by Tom Ruegger. 

This children’s book was created to support President Joe Biden’s public mask mandate, to increase health and safety across America. The poem, told in the beloved style of Dr. Seuss, features Hamill playing the role of both a shopkeeper asking a patron to wear a mask and the stubborn patron who refuses to do so. 

All proceeds from the video go to World Central Kitchen. A Kindle edition of the book can be purchased HERE.

John Krasinski’s YouTube Series ‘Some Good News’ Is Moving To CBS All Access

John Krasinski is moving his web series “Some Good News” to ViacomCBS.

Following a massive bidding war, the feel-good news/talk program is will premiere new episodes on CBS All Access, with additional short-form content to air on other outlets across the ViacomCBS portfolio. Comedy Central Productions will produce the series.

Krasinski will remain onboard as an executive producer and will hold a recurring on-camera role, but he is not expected to host the new installments.

“Could not be more excited and proud to be partnering with CBS/Viacom to be able to bring Some Good News to so many more people!” Krasinski said in a statement. “From the first episode, our goal was to create a news show dedicated entirely to good news. Never did I expect to be joining the ranks of such a historic news organization as CBS.”

“Comedy Central Productions is excited to partner with John and bring his beloved Some Good News to audiences around the world through ViacomCBS’ family of brands,” said Chris McCarthy, Entertainment & Youth Group president.

The “Office” alum debuted the show back in March on YouTube, where it became a reliable hit. The show produced a total eight episodes before Krasinski signed off earlier this month. The channel currently has 2.56 million subscribers and a total of more than 70 million video views.

It’s Time To Go Back To The Future On Reunited Apart With Josh Gad

The cast of Back to the Future reunited for a video posted Monday, a second in a series of fundraising projects spearheaded by Josh Gad, dubbed Reunited Apart.

The actor launched his new YouTube series by reuniting the cast of the Goonies in an effort to raise funds for Project HOPE. 

In the newest chapter of the series, Gad first chatted (over video) with stars Christopher Lloyd and Michal J. Fox before bringing in other familiar faces, such as Lea Thompson, Mary Steenburgen and Elisabeth Shue. Gad was also able to wrangle screenwriter Bob Gale and writer-director Bob Zemeckis. Trilogy composer Alan Silvestri and rocker Huey Lewis also joined the chat. And self-described Back to the Future superfan (and Star Wars filmmaker) J.J. Abrams dropped in on the fun. 

The group talked about their time on the franchise and which scenes they enjoyed working on the most. There were even a few lines readings of some of the most iconic exchanges. 

Gale and Zemeckis recounted how they had to battle studio Universal on the title of the film and Lewis talked about how he had no clue what to write for a film about time travel, so he instead wrote the classic “Power of Love.”
