Tyra Banks Gives Update on 'Life-Size 2' and Lindsay Lohan's Character (Exclusive)

Tyra Banks is just a doll when it comes to sharing juicy details about the upcoming Life-Size sequel!

ET’s Denny Directo caught up with the stunner on the red carpet for America’s Got Talent‘s Season 13 live show at the Dolby Theatre in LA on Tuesday, where she shared an update on the long-gestating follow-up to her 2000 Disney film co-starring Lindsay Lohan.

“Oh Eve is Eve 2.0,” she shared. “I am proud of this movie. Like, I really think it’s gonna be the biggest holiday movie of the year. Yes, I said it!”

The original film tells the story of Casey (Lohan), a young girl who accidentally brings a Barbie-esque doll named Eve (Banks) to life while attempting to resurrect her mother, who died two years prior. Naturally, Eve and Casey get in a number of adventures before the spell is broken and the life-size doll returns to her plastic form.

So, will Lohan play any kind of role in the upcoming second film? “I mean, c’mon,” Banks demurred when asked. “I’m executive producing [the movie]. Come on.” When pushed for more, Banks added, “Do you think I’m a fool?” When Directo said, “No,” she replied, “Exactly! So what do you think that means? You know. Hello, holla!” That certainly sounds like a confirmation!

Although details of the sequel have not been released, it was announced in July that Francia Raisa is co-starring in the film, which is set to arrive this coming holiday season.

America’s Got Talent airs Tuesday nights on NBC.

Check out the full interview above.

Glen Powell Shares Hilarious and Heartfelt Post on Joining Cast of 'Top Gun 2'

Glen Powell has a message for dreamers everywhere.

The 29-year-old actor shared a post from the set of Top Gun: Maverick, a film that he lobbied hard to star in alongside Tom Cruise (who’s returning as Maverick), only to lose out to Miles Teller. However, at the 11th hour, he was tapped to join the production in another role.

“Guess some things aren’t so classified…It’s now official. I’m headed to TOP GUN,” he captioned a photo of himself wearing aviators and a bomber jacket while posing in front of a classic fighter jet on Instagram. “This movie is one of the reasons I became an actor. It’s why I always go low after a high-five, always fall in love with my teachers, say things like ‘clean ‘em and fry ‘em’ on a daily basis, end volleyball games in oiled-up flexing, and why I can blame all my speeding tickets on Kenny Loggins.”

“In all seriousness, I just had my ten-year anniversary since moving from Austin to Los Angeles to give acting a shot,” he added. “Victories are rare, dreams are mostly broken, so I am truly grateful for everyone in my life who’s helped me beat the odds to get into this flight suit. This role is a dream come true. Don’t ever give up. Missile Lock is Real. #IFeelTheNeed.”

He, Teller and a number of rising male actors were vying for the role of Goose’s son in the sequel. Goose, played by Anthony Edwards, was Maverick’s wingman in the 1986 original, and his death offered the classic film some of its most dramatic moments.

After Powell learned that he had lost out to Teller, he took it in stride, posting a witty response on Twitter.

I’m taking down all the Tom Cruise posters in my bedroom,” he captioned a retweet of the news. “Maybe, I’ll leave one. Two for symmetry. Okay, the posters are staying.”

Sterling K. Brown just might be joining the cast of Frozen 2

ET’s Kevin Frazier spoke with the 42-year-old actor as he was promoting his upcoming film, The Predator, at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, where he took a moment to comment on the reports that he’s been cast in the upcoming Frozen sequel

“Oh wow, what can I say, in negotiations right now. [I’m] feeling optimistic,” he revealed of his involvement in the film, which is set for a November 2019 release. “There’s a new character they want to introduce that I kind of auditioned for, and it would be an opportunity do something my kid can definitely watch. This is definitely family friendly, so I’m crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.” 

Brown is dad to two young sons, Andrew and Amaré, with his wife, Ryan Michelle Bathe. He will reportedly be joining Frozen alongside Evan Rachel Wood, while Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell and Josh Gad are set to reprise their roles from the 2013 film as Elsa, Anna and Olaf, respectively. 

“I know my man Josh Gad is in there. We’ve talked about it several times, and so an opportunity to play with him would be a lot of fun,” Brown told ET. “So send up and hope for the best.” 

For now, Brown is focused on his role in The Predator, which he said will play off the 1987 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. 

“We honor that the Predator has been here several times in the past,” he said. “We’re trying to collect as much information as we can to arm ourselves, to learn about the Predator and be ready to fight it the next time coming forward.”

Zazie Beetz is paying tribute to Joi “SJ” Harris, the stuntwoman who died on Monday while performing a motorcycle stunt on set of Deadpool 2 in Vancouver, Canada.

“On Monday we tragically lost one of our own — Joi SJ Harris,” the actress wrote in a handwritten posted to Instagram on Wednesday night. “My heart has been breaking the past two days and I have been searching what to say or do.”

Beetz continued: “I know that what I feel is nothing compared to what her loved ones, friends + family, are feeling. My heart and my love goes out to her and them all. The cast and crew send peace, healing, and their deepest condolences.”

Deadpool 2 was Harris’ first job as a stunt driver. On her website, she promoted herself as “the first licensed African American women in U.S. history to actively compete in sanctioned motorcycle road racing events.”

Eyewitnesses told the Vancouver Sun that around 8 a.m. on Monday, Harris was filming the stunt when she lost control of her bike, and jumped a curb and crashed into Shaw Tower, across from Canada Place. The outlet also reported that Harris was treated by ambulance personnel but died at the scene.

In addition to Beetz, Ryan Reynolds also paid tribute to Harris in a heartfelt post on Twitter. “Today, we tragically lost a member of our crew while filming Deadpool [2],” wrote Reynolds, who’s reprising his role as Wade in the superhero sequel. “We’re heartbroken, shocked and devastated… but recognize nothing can come close to the grief and inexplicable pain her family and loved ones must feel in this moment.”
