Earlier this year, a 45-year-old Irish woman named Amanda Teague came forward to share a joyful announcement with the world: Two years earlier, she had married a wonderful man.

Jon Hamm would like to play Batman, if anyone out there is hiring

Yesterday, we heard that Warner Bros. was planning to kick Henry Cavill out of its DC superhero movies, and that someone—maybe even Michael B.
