Elisabeth Moss
With The West Wing, Mad Men, and now The Handmaid’s Tale under her belt, it’s no wonder that Vulture named Elisabeth Moss the “Queen of Peak TV.” In addition to winning two Emmys this year, Moss starred in the Swedish comedy The Square, which won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. She’s even the lead in the upcoming show Call Jane, which centers on…

James Van Der Beek
James Van Der Beek is Diplo. At least according to the Viceland mocku-series What Would Diplo Do?, where he lets us peek into a fictionalized version of the DJ’s life, revealing the often-hilarious inspiration behind some of his hit songs. In real life, he tweets random thoughts, adorable family pictures, and even uses the platform to open up about his expe…
Lil Rel Howery
