Corin Jamie Lee Clark: 5 Things To Know About Model Dating Jesse Metcalfe After Cara Santana Split



Nearly seven months after Jesse Metcalfe and Cara Santana called it quits, he has reportedly moved on with the gorgeous Corin Jamie Lee Clark. As this new love blossoms, here’s what you need to know about Corin.

Jesse Metcalfe started 2020 off with heartbreak, but it looks like he won’t end the year that way. The Chesapeake Shores star has struck up a romance with Canadian model Corin Jamie Lee Clark, 27, according to E! News. Jesse, 41, has supposedly “gotten serious” with the 27-year-old model “very quickly,” with E! News reporting its sources say the Desperate Housewives alum “can’t get enough” of his new girlfriend, and that he’s “crazy about her.”

The romance comes after Jesse and Cara Santana called off their engagement in January. In November 2019, Cara, 35, told HollywoodLife in an EXCLUSIVE interview that she was excited to marry Jesse “sometime in 2020… I think because we’re so fulfilled individually, we’re able to bring so much to our relationship when we’re together.” Unfortunately, the two would change their tune a few months later and end their four-year engagement. Though Jesse was the subject of cheating allegations, the first reports of the split claimed “he did not cheat” on his fiancee.

Since Jesse has reportedly found new love, here’s what you need to know about Corin:

1. Corin is a model from Vancouver. Hailing from The Great White North, Corin got into modeling almost by accident. “It was actually an opportunity that I stumbled upon a few years back,” she told SKYN magazine.” A well-known, talented photographer reached out to me. Next thing I know, I was flying to California to shoot in Laguna.” At the time of the interview, she was a relative newcomer to modeling and said that she wasn’t always comfortable in her own skin. “Seeing myself on camera for the first time was a very humbling experience, to say the least,” she told SKYN.

“I soon realized how to manipulate my body in the right way to make it look good on camera,” she added. “I was even told from other models, ‘the more awkward the pose feels, the better it looks on camera.’ ” Since then, she has gotten quite comfortable in front of the camera and posing in next-to-nothing. Speaking of being naked, Corin said that Kanye West has inadvertently seen her topless — sorta. When asked what the most “WTF moment” that ever happened to her during a modeling shoot was, she said that her “boob popping out in front of [Kanye]” was it.

2. Corin enjoys beaches, veggie dogs, and classic rock. “Losing myself here,” she captioned a November 2017 IG post featuring her swimming through Baha Mar in a barely-there bikini. “Take me back to chasing sea turtles in the Bahamas,” she added. Her account is full of her travels, which included catching Coachella in 2018 (“Thanks for the memories!”), taking in a Los Angeles Dodgers game that year (“came for the veggie dogs“), and riding camels out in the desert in 2016. Often, she’s going on these adventures while wearing a classic rock t-shirt. “Alexa, play ‘wish you were here’ by Pink Floyd,” she captioned an August 2019 post.

3. Corin’s an aunt. “I miss my family a lot lately,” Corin wrote on June 17, while sharing pictures from presumably her sister’s wedding, as well as pictures of her nephew. “[A]nd I can’t believe our baby boy is going to be a year old soon! Being his auntie has completely changed me as a person for the better. I didn’t know I was capable of loving a little human so much. He is the first thing I think of in the morning, and I’m so grateful every day that he was sent into our lives. this boy will change the world one day.”

4. This beauty is socially conscious and politically active. Corin currently has 188,000 Instagram Followers, and she has encouraged every one of them to take a stand in support of the recent Black Lives Matter protests following the death of George Floyd. She has included a link to blacklivesmatters.carrd.co in her IG profile, which links to an information hub on ways that others can help the fight for racial equality across the world.

5. Corin isn’t afraid to get philosophical. Though Corin’s Instagram page is filled with posts of her looking glamorous in a range of skin-baring outfits, she’s more than just a pretty face. “Sometimes, I just like rewriting the things I read online to help apply them to my real life,” she captioned a February 2020 Instagram story. Some of these “rewritings” included a list of things she’s learned: “Your feelings are valid and should be honored. That doesn’t mean they are real.” “The things that other people see as ‘success’ will not always be the same things that actually make you happy.” “The world is completely unfair, but that is no excuse.” “Telling your story is liberating.”

Netflix is developing a live action ‘Assassin’s Creed’ show



Netflix announced this morning that it’s partnering with Ubisoft to adapt the game publisher’s “Assassin’s Creed” franchise into a live action series.

The franchise jumps around in history, telling the story of a secret society of assassins with “genetic memory” and their centuries-long battle the knights templar. It has sold 155 million games worldwide and was also turned into a nearly incomprehensible 2016 film starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, which underperformed at the box office.

The companies say that they’re currently looking for a showrunner. Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik of Ubisoft’s film and television division will serve as executive producers. (In addition to working on adaptations of Ubisoft’s intellectual property, the publisher is also involved in the Apple TV+ industry comedy “Mythic Quest.”)

“We’re excited to partner with Ubisoft and bring to life the rich, multilayered storytelling that Assassin’s Creed is beloved for,” said Netflix’s vice president of original series Peter Friedlander in a statement. “From its breathtaking historical worlds and massive global appeal as one of the best selling video game franchises of all time, we are committed to carefully crafting epic and thrilling entertainment based on this distinct IP and provide a deeper dive for fans and our members around the world to enjoy.”

It sounds like there could be follow-up shows as well, with the announcement saying that Netflix and Ubisoft will “tap into the iconic video game’s trove of dynamic stories with global mass appeal for adaptations of live action, animated, and anime series.”

Netflix recently placed an eight-episode order for “Resident Evil,” another video game franchise that was previously adapted for the big screen. And it also had a big hit with its adaptation of “The Witcher,” which is based on a fantasy book series that was popularized via video games.

Original Content podcast: ‘Lovecraft Country’ is gloriously bonkers



As we tried to recap the first season of HBO’s “Lovecraft Country,” one thing became clear: The show is pretty nuts.

The story begins by sending Atticus “Tic” Freeman (Jonathan Majors), his friend Leti Lewis (Jurnee Smolett) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) on a road trip across mid-’50s America in search of Tic’s missing father. You might assume that the search will occupy the entire season, or take even longer than that; instead, the initial storyline is wrapped up quickly.

And while there’s a story running through the whole season, most of the episodes are relatively self-contained, offering their own versions on various horror and science fiction tropes. There’s a haunted house episode, an Indiana Jones episode, a time travel episode and more.

The show isn’t perfect — the writing can be clunky, the special effects cheesy and cheap-looking. But at its best, it does an impressive job of mixing increasingly outlandish plots, creepy monsters (with plentiful gore) and a healthy dose of politics.

After all, “Lovecraft Country” (adapted form a book by Matt Ruff) is named after notoriously racist horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, but it focuses almost entirely on Black characters, making the case that old genres can be reinvigorated with diverse casts and a rethinking of political assumptions.

In addition to reviewing the show, the latest episode of the Original Content podcast also includes a discussion of Netflix earnings, the new season of “The Bachelorette” and the end of Quibi.

The short, strange life of Quibi



“All that is left now is to offer a profound apology for disappointing you and, ultimately, for letting you down,” Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman wrote, closing out an open letter posted to Medium. “We cannot thank you enough for being there with us, and for us, every step of the way.”

With that, the founding executives confirmed the rumors and put Quibi to bed, a little more than six months after launching the service.

Starting a business is an impossibly difficult task under nearly any conditions, but even in a world that’s littered with high-profile failures, the streaming service’s swan song was remarkable for both its dramatically brief lifespan and the amount of money the company managed to raise (and spend) during that time.

A month ahead of its commercial launch, Quibi announced that it had raised another $750 million. That second round of funding brought the yet-to-launch streaming service’s funding up to $1.75 billion — roughly the same as the gross domestic product of Belize, give or take $100 million.

“We concluded a very successful second raise which will provide Quibi with a strong cash runway,” CFO Ambereen Toubassy told the press at the time. “This round of $750 million gives us tremendous flexibility and the financial wherewithal to build content and technology that consumers embrace.”

Quibi’s second funding round brought the yet-to-launch streaming service’s funding up to $1.75 billion — roughly the same as the gross domestic product of Belize, give or take $100 million.

From a financial perspective, Quibi had reason to be hopeful. Its fundraising ambitions were matched only by the aggressiveness with which it planned to spend that money. At the beginning of the year, Whitman touted the company’s plans to spend up to $100,000 per minute of programming — $6 million per hour. The executive proudly contrasted the jaw-dropping sum to the estimated $500 to $5,000 an hour spent by YouTube creators.

For Whitman and Katzenberg — best known for their respective reigns at HP and Disney — money was key to success in an already crowded marketplace. $1 billion was a drop in the bucket compared to the $17.3 billion Netflix was expected to spend on original content in 2020, but it was a start.

Following in the footsteps of Apple, who had also recently announced plans to spend $1 billion to launch its own fledgling streaming service, the company was enlisting A-List talent, from Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro and Ridley Scott to Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Lopez and LeBron James. If your name carried any sort of clout in Hollywood boardrooms, Quibi would happily cut you a check, seemingly regardless of content specifics.

Quibi’s strategy primarily defined itself by itself by its constraints. In hopes of attracting younger millennial and Gen Z, the company’s content would be not just mobile-first, but mobile-only. There would be no smart TV app, no Chromecast or AirPlay compatibility. Pricing, while low compared to the competition, was similarly off-putting. After a 90-day free trial, $4.99 got you an ad-supported subscription. And boy howdy, were there ads. Ads upon ads. Ads all the way down. Paying another $3 a month would make them go away.

Technological constraints and Terms of Service fine print forbade screen shots — a fundamental understanding of how content goes viral in 2020 (though, to be fair, one shared with other competing streaming services). Amusingly, the inability to share content led to videos like this one of director Sam Raimi’s perplexingly earnest “The Golden Arm.”

It features a built-on laugh track from viewers as Emmy winner Rachel Brosnahan lies in a hospital bed after refusing to remove a golden prosthetic. It’s an allegory, surely, but not one intentionally played for laughs. Many of the videos that did ultimately make the rounds on social media were regarded as a curiosity — strange artifacts from a nascent streaming service that made little sense on paper.

Most notable of all, however, were the “quick bites” that gave the service its confusingly pronounced name. Each program would be served in 5-10 minute chunks. The list included films acquired by the service, sliced up into “chapters.” Notably, the service didn’t actually purchase the content outright; instead, rights were set to revert to their creators after seven years. Meanwhile, after two years, content partners were able to “reassemble” the chunks back into a movie for distribution.
