Hogwarts Castle from 'Harry Potter'
This morning Pottermore unveiled new cast photos for the actors playing Harry Potter, Ginny and Albus Severus in a new play called "The Cursed Child." This new world in the Harry Potter series will be 19 years later when Albus (Harry's youngest son) goes off to Hogwarts.

At the end of the series, Ginny and Harry had three children: James, Albus, and Lily. Today we know that Albus is "The Cursed Child."

Jamie Parker, playing Harry, was announced back in December, Poppy Miller and Sam Clemmett were just announced today. 
 
And yes, they are already talking about a movie. Obviously.

Bryan Cranston

Bryan Cranston is more than just an amazing actor. He's a good friend. 

Cranston is joining comedian George Lopez in asking residents of New Mexico's largest county to vote for fellow actor Steven Michael Quezada in a county commissioner’s race. In real life, Quezada currently sits on the school board but he is perhaps best known for his role as DEA agent Steven Gomez in Breaking Bad.

LeBron James shakes hands with Stephen Curry
The Golden State Warriors came back to beat Oklahoma City, and in doing so they earned the right to face the LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. The two teams played last year with Golden State winning the NBA Championship.

The Cavs are a healthier and stronger team than they were last year, but the Warriors also set a regular season record for the most wins in history. It should be a great matchup!

Game One is Thursday night.

Katy Perry
Katy Perry's Twitter account was apparently hacked Monday night. And this isn't one of those scenarios where a star Tweeted something regretful and claimed it was a hacker.

Whoever took over the account started tweeting out offensive words and racial slurs. They also Tweeted "miss you baby @taylorswift13." 

The account was quickly taken back over and the Tweets were deleted with no mention of them ever existing.

Demi Lovato
Singer Demi Lovato recently lost her great grandmother, and used Instagram to help mourn:
 
 

This morning I lost my world and the world's most special woman. I miss her more than words can even describe. There is an emptiness in my heart that only her spirit can fill and I pray that I will feel her by my side every single day until we meet again. I attribute my strength to her.. She held on when she lost the love of her life.. The one she was married to for 53 years. She smiled even though she lost a son just this year. She told everyone she loved them every single chance she got and she joked even when her strokes left her unable to speak properly. The smile that she had not only could light up a whole room but it most definitely lit up the entire nursing home. She was my great-grandmother but we were so close that I never knew it was possible that anyone could have the bond that we shared even 70 years a part. The pain I feel is almost unbearable but because of her strength I will power through it. The love and support I have received has been empowering and so special to me.. I love all of you so much and I am forever grateful for the prayers, texts and fan art my Lovatics have made me. Thank you. Mimaw, I hope you are with Papa now.. I hate that I can't hear your voice but I love that you are no longer in pain. I love you so much and I miss you more than anyone could ever imagine. I'll miss your smile, your wittiness, painting your nails and your kisses. I really do love you more. Rest in peace and most importantly rest in the Lord. #RIPMimaw

Russell Westbrook high-fives Kevin Durant
It helps to have well connected friends! Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and Nick Collision from the Oklahoma City Thunder helped their equipment manger with his marriage proposal.

His name is Wilson Taylor and the plans for the proposal began when Durant pulled him aside to make sure he had everything he needed to pop the question. Taylor said he wanted to do a scavenger hunt.

Taylor took his girlfriend on a tour of Oklahoma City. The tour had many stops including:
  • A free-throw session with Westbrook
  • Drinks with Collision
  • Durant handing the ring to Taylor at the Gaylord Pickens Oklahoma Hall of Fame museum
By the way, she said yes.

A tire
When I heard about this my first though was that I would get motion sickness. Fortunately once the tire gets going fast enough you forget how it was made. 

Watch what happened when someone mounted a GoPro camera on the side of their tire:
