Pedro Pascal or Matt Damon turn, you won’t find it in “Drive-Away Dolls.” Qualley is the closest here to a standout.

Jimmy Kimmel enlisted Weird Barbie to help him get to the 2024 Oscars in a new promo video for the upcoming awards ceremony!
Zack Sharf Digital News Director ABC has debuted the first promotional video for the upcoming Oscars, and it features host Jimmy Kimmel in a full-blown recreation of “Barbie” that also reunites cast members Ryan Gosling, America Ferrera and Kate McKinnon.
