Lisa Page slams Trump after he suggests she got restraining order against Peter Strzok

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page slammed President Trump Wednesday after he suggested– without evidence– that she had to get a restraining order against ex-FBI investigator Peter Strzok.

“This is a lie,” Page tweeted in response to his claim. “Nothing like this ever happened. I wish we had a president who knew how to act like one. SAD!”

At a rally in Hershey, Pa., Tuesday evening, Trump spoke at length about Page and Strzok.

LISA PAGE SUES FBI AND DOJ, CITING ‘COST OF THERAPY’ AFTER TRUMP MOCKED HER SALACIOUS TEXT MESSAGES

“This poor guy, did I hear that he needed a restraining order after this whole thing to keep him away from Lisa?” he asked the cheering audience. “That’s what I heard. I don’t know if it’s true. The fake news will never report it, but it could be true.”

Page and Strzok are frequent targets of the president because of their anti-Trump texts while having an affair as FBI colleagues before Stzrok was released from the Mueller investigation and eventually fired from the FBI.

Their texts also brought scrutiny to their motives with communications like “we’ll stop it,” referring to Trump’s candidacy and writing that they have an “insurance policy” for the election.

On Tuesday, Page filed a lawsuit against the FBI and Justice Department for leaking her private texts, claiming it was a breach of the Federal Privacy Act.

Page broke her silence earlier this month, saying in an interview that Trump’s personal attacks are like “being punched in the gut.”

“My heart drops to my stomach when I realize he has tweeted about me again,” she said. “The president of the United States is calling me names to the entire world. He’s demeaning me and my career. It’s sickening.”

It’s not clear where Trump got his information about the restraining order.

New Zealand volcano dead include 2 teen brothers from Chicago area; parents still missing: reports

A family with ties to the Chicago area has been confirmed to be among the victims of Monday’s devastating volcanic eruption in New Zealand, according to reports.

Teen brothers Berend and Matthew Hollander, ages 16 and 13, respectively, both born near Chicago, were confirmed as having been killed in the eruption by officials at the Australian school they have been attending, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Their parents, Martin and Barbara Hollander, ages 48 and 50, were listed among the people still unaccounted for following the explosion on New Zealand’s White Island.

NEW ZEALAND VOLCANO RESCUER SAYS ISLAND LOOKED LIKE SCENE OUT OF ‘CHERNOBYL’ AS ISLAND BLANKETED IN ASH

Martin Hollander was a native of Australia while Barbara Hollander was from the Chicago suburb of Northbrook, WLS-TV reported. The family lived in the Chicago area for a number of years, with Martin Hollander’s LinkedIn page listing at least two jobs in the area, the Tribune reported.

“They were a wonderful family, always helpful,” Craig Carlson, a former neighbor of the family in Illinois, told WLS.

The family returned to Australia several years ago, with both teens enrolled in the Knox Grammar School north of Sydney.

“It is with the greatest sadness that I can confirm that Matthew Hollander and Berend (known as ‘Ben’) Hollander have passed away in hospital as a result of injuries sustained in the White Island volcano eruption,” the school’s headmaster wrote in a letter to parents, the Tribune reported. “Please take some time to reflect on the lives of Matthew and Ben and this devastating loss for our community.”

Meanwhile, New Zealand officials said Thursday that efforts to recover bodies believed to be on the island will begin Friday.

Dozens of other visitors were badly burned in the blast, which occurred as a group of 47 tourists was touring the volcano area.

Dr. Peter Watson, a chief medical officer in New Zealand, said the country had ordered 1,300 square feet of skin from U.S.-based skin banks so that skin-grafting operations could be performed soon on the surviving victims.

The visitors included 24 Australians, nine Americans, five New Zealanders, four Germans, two Britons, two Chinese and a Malaysian, the Associated Press reported. Many were passengers on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship that had left Sydney two days earlier.

Many of the Australians were being airlifted back to their home country for medical attention, The Australian newspaper reported.

Those injured included Matthew and Lauren Urey from Richmond, Va., a newly married couple visiting New Zealand on their honeymoon.

Matthew suffered burns to around 80 percent of his body, while Lauren suffered burns to about 25 percent of her body, family members told Richmond’s WTVR-TV. Relatives from the U.S. were heading to New Zealand to be with the couple as they recover, the report said.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Thursday some injured Australians had been medically evacuated and such flights would continue. Australia previously said up to 10 such patients would be transferred to hospitals in Victoria and New South Wales states for further treatment.

New Zealand’s GeoNet seismic monitoring agency on Thursday lowered White Island’s volcanic alert level to 2, noting there’s been no further eruption since Monday, when the level had briefly been raised to 4. Its alert level since late Monday had been 3 on a scale where 5 signifies a major eruption.

A further eruption in the next day still remains a possibility, the agency said, noting volcanic tremors are rising and steam and mud were being vented regularly.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.

Judge Andrew Napolitano: FISA – utilized to OK FBI surveillance of 2016 Trump campaign – is unconstitutional

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6114548021001_6114549550001-vs Judge Andrew Napolitano: FISA – utilized to OK FBI surveillance of 2016 Trump campaign – is unconstitutional fox-news/us/constitution fox-news/tech/topics/fbi fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc Creators Syndicate article Andrew Napolitano 5ddd85a5-c1e1-5b54-a12a-5107dbb7a35c

Congress enacted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)  in 1978 in response to the unlawful surveillance of Americans by the FBI and the CIA during the Watergate era. President Richard Nixon — who famously quipped after leaving office that “when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal” — used the FBI and the CIA to spy on his political opponents.

The stated reason was national security. Nixon claimed that foreign agents physically present in the U.S. agitated and aggravated his political opponents to produce the great public unrest in America in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and thus diminished Americans’ appetite for fighting the Vietnam War.

There was, of course, no evidence to support that view, but the neocons in Congress and the military-industrial complex supported it even after Nixon left office.

FISA REPORT DROPS: 7 TAKEAWAYS FROM DOJ WATCHDOG’S RUSSIA PROBE REVIEW

This view — there are foreigners among us who wish us harm — came to fruition during the presidency of Jimmy Carter, who pushed for the enactment of FISA. FISA’s stated purpose was to limit — not expand — the government’s surveillance powers by requiring the intervention and permission of a judge.

Wait a minute. Government surveillance is a search under the Fourth Amendment, and government searches already required warrants from judges. So, what was new about FISA?

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

The Constitution requires probable cause of crime to be demonstrated to a judge before the judge can sign a search warrant. That was the law of the land until FISA came along. FISA set up the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, and it authorized the judges on that court to issue search warrants based on a lower standard of probable cause.

More from Opinion

Isn’t that contrary to the Constitution? Yes, it is. But a challenge has never reached a non-FISC federal court because the government has never used evidence that it admits was obtained from a FISC warrant in a criminal case for fear that a federal court will invalidate the FISA standard.

It gets worse.

Because FISC meets in secret, and because only government lawyers appear before it, we have a dangerous recipe: Secrecy and no defense counsel produce tyranny. That combination has the standard for issuing search warrants sliding even further down the slope of tyranny and absurdity.

FISA established probable cause of foreign agency as the standard that government lawyers must meet. That morphed into probable cause of foreign personhood. That morphed into probable cause of speaking to a foreign person. And that morphed into probable cause of speaking to any person who has ever spoken to a foreign person. All of this happened in secret.

This slow but persistent destruction of the right to be left alone, which is ostensibly guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment, came about not only by secrecy and the absence of adversaries but also by judicial gullibility and constitutional infidelity.

Judges have a tendency to accept uncritically the unchallenged applications presented to them. This is an inherent defect for FISC judges, whose decisions slowly and materially weakened the already unconstitutional FISA probable cause standard. FISC judges have granted 99.97 percent of all applications for search warrants.

All of this is presented as historical and legal background for an understanding of the report of the Inspector General of the Department of Justice on the FBI’s use of FISA to surveil the Trump campaign in 2016 and 2017.

That report, released earlier this week, concludes that the original FISA statutory standard — probable cause of foreign agency — was met when Australian intelligence agents tipped off CIA and FBI agents to the boasts of one of Donald Trump’s foreign policy advisers that he had ties to the Kremlin.

The FBI then took that tip, added to it erroneous, incomplete and unverified materials, and persuaded FISC to issue warrants to surveil the Trump adviser and the campaign.

The DOJ IG found that the beginning of the investigation was lawful and nonpolitical, but its expansion and continuance manifested substantial violations of DOJ and FBI protocols.

There is more. FISA is not only unconstitutional; it is also inherently corrupting of government officials.

When government prosecutors seek a search warrant pursuant to the Fourth Amendment, they are careful to document all their allegations. They know that if their target is indicted, the target’s lawyers will have access to their applications for the search warrant and can challenge its issuance.

In the midst of a homicide trial, I once reversed and nullified a warrant that I had issued two years earlier when I learned that the government had intentionally kept exculpatory evidence from me; evidence that, had I known of it, would have dissuaded me from issuing the warrant. That is the beauty of our due process. The adversary system exposes the truth.

There is no such exposure under FISA, and FBI and National Security Agency agents know that. They also know that their methods and applications to the secret FISC will never be exposed to defense counsel or to the public.

Until now.

Now, we have seen in a case involving the president of the United States, a material alteration of a document, reliance on unverified allegations, substantial omissions, agents duping one another, applications signed by senior DOJ and FBI folks who never even read, much less questioned, what they signed — all done with the false comfort that their misdeeds would not come to light.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

My intelligence and law enforcement colleagues tell me that two generations of FBI agents have come of age believing that if they have a weak case, if they lack enough probable cause to obtain a search warrant, they can always get one from FISC.

The FISA court is repugnant to the Constitution and to the concept of an independent judiciary, and it took an IG report on the FBI and the president to demonstrate that.

Sara, Erin Foster felt ‘emotional turmoil’ while dad David Foster raised Jenner boys

Sara and Erin Foster had a hard time with their father once step-brothers Brandon and Brody Jenner came into the picture.

The sisters paid a visit to Kate and Oliver Hudson‘s podcast “Sibling Revelry” on Tuesday, where they discussed their family troubles.

“Our dad was raising other children. He wasn’t raising us. He was raising Brandon and Brody,” said Sara, 38. “So, for Erin, what weighed so heavily on her, was me. I was, like, dealing with my whole own emotional turmoil, which was watching my father raise other children. That was the thing that kept me up at night.”

MEGHAN FOX, BRIAN AUSTIN GREEN MAKE RARE JOINT RED CARPET APPEARANCE

In 1995, Sara and Erin’s father, David Foster, married Linda Thompson, who is the mother to Brandon and Brody Jenner with Olympic athlete Caitlyn Jenner.

The couple divorced in 2001.

“We never lived with our dad, right, after our parents broke up,” said Erin, 37. “So, from the ages of 3 and 5 we were living with our mom, and our dad was living in this $20 million house with Brandon and Brody. It had the trolley, it had the pool and this thing.”

David, now 70, is a music producer and Sara and Erin’s mother, Rebecca Dyer, occasionally acts and models. They were married in 1982 and divorced in 1986.

“They had a very different life,” noted Erin. “But, out in the world, people would be like, ‘You guys are spoiled brats and you guys have it all and you’re rich kids.’ And we would be like, ‘I mean, yeah, but we don’t live there. We don’t have the gate code. We don’t have a room there. We’re not really a part of that world.’”

The sisters also admitted that they hold “deep” resentment toward their former stepbrothers.

“Mine was less resentment towards them, it was more like, we’re misunderstood out in the world, because we have this fake, spoiled lifestyle, but we’re not even really allowed to be a part of it,” Erin explained. “So, we get all the backlash for it, but we don’t actually get the benefits.”

The duo referred to their childhood and their 20s as “survival mode.”

David is now married to singer Katherine McPhee, and it appears that there is less animosity in the family these days, as Erin suggested that the 35-year-old singer may perform at her upcoming wedding.

“So Kat wrote me the other day, she was like, ‘Is there anything that I can be doing to help you prepare (for the wedding)?'” Erin told E! News in November. “And I said, ‘Yes. Vocal exercises. Prepare your voice because you will be performing.’ She’s like, ‘OK.'”

“She truly has such a beautiful voice,” gushed Erin. “Simon and I are real fans of her so I’m very excited.”

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd admits FBI’s FISA abuses ‘alarming,’ but says Trump, Barr pushing ‘conspiracy theories’

Westlake Legal Group Chuck-Todd MSNBC's Chuck Todd admits FBI's FISA abuses 'alarming,' but says Trump, Barr pushing 'conspiracy theories' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc f5bf7a8c-28b9-52b1-adc2-73137860996b article

MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd acknowledged Wednesday that the numerous errors uncovered by Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz of the highly controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application process were “alarming,” but claimed President Trump and his were using those findings to push “conspiracy theories.”

Todd pointed to what he described as “one of the president’s impeachment counter-narratives,” stressing that Horowitz’s testimony weakened Trump’s claims of an “attempted coup” when the watchdog repeatedly told Congress he did not find evidence that the launch of the Russia probe had a political bias.

“Let’s be crystal clear here… The IG did find some alarming instances of FBI misconduct related to its applications to secretly monitor Carter Page,” Todd said, referring to the former Trump campaign adviser. “He could not say whether political bias did or did not influence some of those specific decisions down the road. And, by the way, it’s not only political bias that could have influenced. It’s possible confirmation bias, prosecutorial bias, not all bias is red and blue in America.”

Todd continued, “The facts in this report are important, but once again, are being distorted more by spin, and in some cases, conspiracy theories.”

MSNBC’S ANDREA MITCHELL: FBI’S FISA APPLICATION ERRORS ‘PRETTY EGREGIOUS’

The “Meet The Press Daily” host then played clips including Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., predicting that a “massive criminal conspiracy” would unravel, Trump calling the controversy an “attempted overthrow,” and Attorney General William Barr asking, “What was the agenda after the election that kept them pressing ahead after their case collapsed?”

“Now the facts have been warped to defend the president here. Counter-narratives have been pushed and presidential conspiracy theories have taken hold as part of this broader information war,” Todd told his viewers. “And, frankly, that’s helped the president in his fight against the facts of this impeachment investigation.”

Hannity says Comey claims of vindication by Horowitz report are ‘just your latest lie’

Sean Hannity addressed former FBI director James Comey Wednesday night, saying the testimony of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz earlier in the day confirmed that the Trump campaign was “spied” upon.

“[Horowitz’s testimony] showed one thing that is perfectly clear, under the corrupt leadership of Jim Comey … a small group of high ranking, powerful officials, yes, as Barr the Attorney General confirmed, spied on the Trump campaign,” Hannity said. “As the Inspector General [Horowitz] also confirmed.”

FISA REPORT DROPS: 7 MAIN TAKEAWAYS FROM DOJ WATCHDOG’S RUSSIA PROBE REVIEW

In blistering testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Horowitz diagnosed a “failure” by the entire “chain of command” involved in the FBI’s initial Trump-Russia investigation and called out “basic and fundamental errors” at the bureau.

“I think the activities we found here don’t vindicate anybody who touched this,” Horowitz testified.

“Thanks to Comey and his Trump-hating deputies the reputation of what is the… world’s premier law enforcement agency has been tarnished,” Hannity said.

The host then spoke directly to Comey, saying he was “anything but vindicated. It’s just your latest lie.”

Hannity also called out current FBI director Christopher Wray for “not showing urgency” about cleaning up the bureau.

“By the way, director Wray, sadly, you’re not showing the urgency and the commitment in terms of restoring this, the premier law enforcement agency in the world’s reputation,” Hannity said. “Our country deserves better. And director Wray, step up. Clean up this, the premier law enforcement agency. Do it for the brave men and women who serve this country and do it for the country.”

Bullied University of Tennessee fan’s homemade T-shirt design earns nearly $1M for nonprofit

Sales from a University of Tennessee spirit T-shirt designed by a bullied Florida fourth-grader have raised nearly $1 million for the Stomp Out Bullying nonprofit group, according to the university.

More than 112,000 shirts were sold, raising more than $952,000 for the anti-bullying organization, Fox 35 Orlando reported.

The fourth-grader from Altamonte Springs was bullied by classmates over his hand-drawn design, which he wore at Altamonte Elementary School for a college spirit day in August.

After his teacher’s post about the shirt went viral, UT decided to sell it online in the campus store.

BULLIED STUDENT’S HOMEMADE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE SHIRT NOW AN OFFICIAL DESIGN

Laura Snyder wrote on Facebook this fall that her student had been extremely excited to show his support of UT.

“When I told my students about this day a week before, this particular child came to me and told me that he wanted to wear a University of Tennessee shirt, but he didn’t have one. We discussed that he could wear an orange shirt to show his spirit. He told me every day leading up to it that he had an orange shirt that he was going to wear,” she said. “So when the day finally arrived, he was SO EXCITED to show me his shirt. I was impressed that he took it one step further to make his own label.”

Some of his classmates, however, bullied him over the homemade shirt.

“After lunch, he came back to my room, put his head [on] his desk and was crying. Some girls at the lunch table next to his [who didn’t even participate in college colors day] had made fun of his sign that he had attached to his shirt. He was DEVASTATED,” she said.

Snyder’s post caught the attention of the university, which embraced the student’s design and school spirit.

The university also offered the boy a full scholarship in the future.

“In recognition of the fourth-grader’s volunteer spirit, the university has extended an offer of honorary admission for him to join the Class of 2032. In addition, he has been awarded a four-year scholarship covering his tuition and fees beginning in fall 2028, should he decide to attend UT and meet admission requirements,” the school said in a statement.

Kevin Hart gives update on his recovery from car crash: ‘I’m about 65 to 75 percent back to my physical self’

Kevin Hart is addressing his recovery after a dangerous car crash in September.

The 40-year-old comedian was in the passenger seat of his car when the vehicle veered off the road, resulting in “major back injuries.”

During a visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday, Hart gave fans an update on his physical health.

“I’m about 65 to 75 percent back to my physical self,” the actor said when DeGeneres, 61, asked about his workout routine. “My workouts are not full. I’m not lifting crazy weights, but I’m back to weighted workouts, agility, mobility, core workouts.”

He also remembered being immobilized, which he says led to a new outlook on life.

“I could wipe my -ss,” he said. “You don’t realize that your back is connected to everything, so coming out of back surgery, everything changed because you’re kind of helpless. That’s when you get to see what really matters, who really matters. Life kind of hits you in a completely different way.”

Hart recounted the round-the-clock care he received from his wife, children, brother and mother-in-law.

“You go, ‘Wow, this is love. This is what real love and life is,'” he recalled. “The things that you think matter, you realize don’t… It’s not about your level of success, it’s not about how much money you have, it’s about those individuals and who you really mean the most to and who means the most to you.

“I got a completely different look on life now. A much better one,” he added.

Hart also said that there’s “something special about any journey” and making it through the “peaks, hills, valleys” to overcome trials and tribulations.

The star detailed his road to recovery, learning to stretch, shower and get dressed on his own.

“The biggest triumph was when I put my socks on one day,” Hart revealed. “…When I put my socks on, it was the biggest thing in the world. I ran around the house (yelling) ‘I got my socks on!'”

The “Jumanji: The Next Level” star also talked about the film, in which he returns as a video game character, this time, inhabited by the personality of Danny Glover’s character.

He showed a video of himself on set, learning to ride a camel. The video featured him shouting in fear after mounting the animal, as co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson laughed.

“What you guys are looking at is racism,” he joked. “… I had the only problematic camel… I complained about it, I filed complaints with our HR department against that camel. I did everything I could to get a different camel. Nobody gave me a different camel. Me and that camel had a problem from the beginning of the shoot to the end of the shoot.”

“And here’s the thing, sometimes, you need to bring attention to things that don’t get the right attention brought to them, and that camel shouldn’t work in this business again,” he said as the audience laughed. “If I can be a part of stopping that, then I will.”

Sarah Jessica Parker shares throwback pics of Andy Cohen on ‘Sex and the City’ — and fans are stunned

Sarah Jessica Parker shocked “Sex and the City” fans on Wednesday when she shared throwback photos from the set of the hit show featuring a little-known guest star: Andy Cohen.

The 54-year-old actress shared two photos of herself, as Carrie Bradshaw, with Cohen, 51, who popped up in two episodes of the HBO show.

“Oh young love,” Parker captioned the post. “Early friendship. I couldn’t possibly have known what @bravoandy would come to mean nor how the love for him would grow.”

SARAH JESSICA PARKER CLAIMS ‘BIG MOVIE STAR’ BEHAVED ‘INAPPROPRIATELY’ ON ‘SEX AND THE CITY’ SET

The first photo in the post featured Cohen putting a shoe on Parker’s foot during the sixth season of the show.

The second photo simply showed Cohen standing next to Parker in a crowded room, a cameo he isn’t even credited for.

The pictures left many fans, who were seemingly unaware of Cohen’s role on the series, stunned.

“OMG I can’t believe I never noticed him,” commented one person.

“Oh no!!! I did not know he was in SATC!!!” echoed another individual.

“What? Now I have to re-watch these episodes for the millionth time! ❤️  SJP & Andy,” said another person. “I had no idea he was in these episodes! Lol I love it! ❤️”

Last summer, Cohen shared the same photo on Instagram, explaining the nature of his appearance during the show’s fourth season.

“You may know that I was a Barney’s shoe salesman in the last season of #SATC but were you aware I appeared in Season 4 (I think) shirtless in a gay bar standing next to Carrie Bradshaw? (Sounds about right!!),” he said in the caption.

Cohen also said that while the shot was ultimately cut out of the episode, it can still be seen on DVD and Amazon copies of the show.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas are bringing an unscripted series about an Indian pre-wedding tradition to Amazon.

Amazon has greenlit the untitled series, which will follow engaged couples as they prepare for their sangeet. A sangeet takes place the night before a wedding and features friends and family participating in a night of song and dance. The series will feature the couples along with their wedding party, family, and friends, as they not only prepare for the wedding itself, but also rehearse for the performances with the help of a team of celebrity choreographers, stylists, and creative directors. Casting is currently underway. Filming will take place in 2020.

“We re-watched the video of our Sangeet last week on our first anniversary, and the togetherness of our family and friends during this event still sparks the same warmth and excitement that it did just over a year ago at our wedding,” said Chopra Jonas. “The Sangeet is a centuries-old Indian wedding tradition, that not only celebrates the union of two people, but also signifies the introduction and bonding of two families coming together in a marriage.”

Chopra Jonas and Jonas, who were married in India last December, will executive produce along with Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, and Dan Volpe of Alfred Street Industries, Anjula Acharia, Phil McIntyre, and Nina Anand Aujla. Chopra Jonas will executive produce via her Purple Pebble Productions while Jonas will executive produce under his Image 32 banner. Amazon Studios will produce.

WOMEN WILL DIRECT FOUR MAJOR SUPERHERO MOVIES IN 2020, AND HOLLYWOOD MAY NEVER BE THE SAME

“The days leading up to our Sangeet were some of the most special, memorable moments of the weekend,” Jonas said. “Bringing the concept of this musical celebration to the mainstream in a new way, through couples setting out on one of the most exciting journeys of their life, is an idea that we are proud to bring to life with Amazon.”

Chopra Jonas is a world-renowned Bollywood star who made her American onscreen debut in the ABC drama series “Quantico” in 2015. She has gone on to star in a number of films since then and is currently developing an untitled Indian wedding comedy with Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor at Universal in which she will star and serve as co-producer.

“The sangeet is such a beautiful tradition and we’re excited to partner with Priyanka and Nick to honor it through this series and find couples from all different backgrounds that are excited to bring their families together through the universal language of song and dance,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios.

Jonas shot to stardom along with his brothers as the musical trio The Jonas Brothers. He most recently joined “The Voice” as a judge for the Spring 2020 season and starred in Lionsgate’s “Midway.” He also stars in the upcoming “Jumanji” sequel.
