Netflix's 'Death To 2020' Mockumentary With Hugh Grant Adds Samuel L. Jackson, Leslie Jones, Lisa Kudrow & More

Hugh Grant has been joined by a ton of amazing actors in Netflix’s upcoming comedy special from the creators of Black Mirror, called Death to 2020.

The 60-year-old Undoing star, who opened up about his own character in the show just recently, will star alongside Lisa Kudrow, Samuel L. Jackson and Leslie Jones.

Joe Keery, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracey Ullman, Cristin Milioti, and Samson Kayo will be part of the upcoming special as well, Deadline reports.

While details of their characters have not been released, Hugh shared that he plays “a historian who’s being interviewed about the year. I’m pretty repellent, actually! And you’ll like my wig.”

Here’s the summary for Death to 2020: “2020: A year so [insert adjective of choice here], even the creators of Black Mirror couldn’t make it up…but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a little something to add. Death To 2020 is a comedy event that tells the story of the dreadful year that was — and perhaps still is? This landmark documentary-style special weaves together some of the world’s most (fictitious) renowned voices with real-life archival footage spanning the past 12 months.”

Hugh is also pictured below, shopping for a Christmas Tree with his family in London over the weekend.

Leslie Jones Tried To Tell Laverne Cox She Was Nominated For An Emmy, But It Didn't Go As Planned

Leslie Jones hosted the virtual announcement for the 2020 Emmy Award Nominations this morning, with Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, Tatiana Maslany and Television Academy CEO Frank Scherma joining her by Zoom calls.

However, when the 52-year-old actress and comedian tried to reveal to Laverne that she was nominated for an Emmy, it didn’t go over as planned.

As Leslie tries to announce it, she gets a little confused on what Laverne is actually nominated for. First, she mentioned Best Drama Series, before then saying Best Actress, then to Guest Actress.

“I was supposed to do that way smoother,” Leslie told Laverne afterwards, and Laverne was still confused about the announcement.

Laverne picked up a nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her role in Orange is the New Black.

You can see the full list of nominations for the 2020 Emmy Awards now on JustJared.com.
