Westlake Legal Group GettyImages-1176500175 Billy Porter may join 'Cinderella' as the Fairy Godmother: report Variety fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/genres/musicals fox-news/entertainment fnc/entertainment fnc Dave McNary article 0029437b-554a-5323-98fc-5a8e47a7054d

“Pose” star Billy Porter is in negotiations to join Camila Cabello in Sony’s reimagined musical version of “Cinderella.”

If the deal goes through, Porter will play Cinderella’s fairy godmother. Sony had no comment.

Cabello came on to the project in April with “Blockers” director Kay Cannon attached to helm and pen the script. Cabello will be involved in the music for the project, which grew out of an original idea from James Corden. The film will be produced by Corden and Leo Pearlman through their Fulwell73 banner.

‘MATRIX 4’: YAHYA ABDUL-MATEEN II LANDS LEAD ROLE

The new “Cinderella” will be a music-oriented version of the traditional tale of the orphaned girl with an evil stepmother. Disney’s 1950 animated drama has received two live-action remakes: 1997’s iteration starring Brandy and Whitney Houston and Kenneth Branagh’s 2015 version with Lily James. The latter grossed $543 million worldwide.

HOLLY HUNTER TO PLAY SALLY YATES IN CBS STUDIOS’ JAMES COMEY MINISERIES

Porter won his first Emmy in the lead actor in a drama series last month for his performance as Pray Tell on Ryan Murphy’s “Pose.” His stage credits include “Angels in America” and his Tony Award-winning portrayal of Lola in “Kinky Boots.”

WAYNE BRADY TO RECUR ON ‘BLACK LIGHTNING SEASON 3

Porter will return for the third season of FX’s “Pose” and will also appear next year in Paramount’s comedy “Like a Boss” opposite Tiffany Haddish, Salma Hayek and Rose Byrne. He is repped by CAA and Industry Entertainment.

‘Fast and the Furious’ director accused of sexual assault

The Fast and the Furious” director Rob Cohen has been accused of sexual assault.

According to a report in HuffPost published Saturday, Cohen allegedly sexually assaulted an unnamed victim — given the name Jane in the article to protect her anonymity — while she was unconscious. The reported assault occurred in 2015 after Cohen invited Jane to a business meeting in Manhattan to discuss collaborating on a TV pilot.

MAX LANDIS ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ABUSE

HuffPost writes that Jane began feeling “fuzzy” after having dinner with Cohen but still accompanied him to another bar because she “was excited about the career opportunity.” The next thing she remembered is waking up naked with Cohen’s “face in her crotch and his fingers inside her.”

‘MAHOGANY’ PRODUCER ROB COHEN LOSES SLIGHTLY ON SALE OF HIDDEN HILLS HOME

HuffPost also reports that Jane sought treatment for sexual assault after her meeting with Cohen. Additionally, Two people close to Jane reportedly confirmed that she told them about the assault immediately after it happened.

Cohen’s lawyer Martin Singer responded to the accusations in a 13-page letter to HuffPost.

“The proposed Story is an outrageous defamatory hit piece, making extraordinarily offensive assertions that my client engaged in heinous sexual misconduct, criminal wrongdoing, and other inappropriate behavior, which are vehemently disputed and denied by my client,” Singer wrote. Singer also warned HuffPost about “publishing this Story in an effort to feed the ‘Me Too’ media frenzy with this salacious Story.”

Singer did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN PROSECUTORS MAKE LAST-MINUTE MOVE IN SEX ASSAULT CASE

Earlier this year, Cohen faced similar charges from his daughter Valkyrie Weather who accused him of molesting her when she was a child. Weather also accused Cohen of taking her to visit sex workers in overseas shooting locations when she was a teen. Cohen has denied the allegations.

Cohen is best known for his work directing the first “Fast and the Furious” film in 2001. He also directed “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor,” which was released in 2008.

Report: SNL Hired the Recently Fired Racist Comedian to Appeal to Conservatives

Westlake Legal Group SNLskit-620x303 Report: SNL Hired the Recently Fired Racist Comedian to Appeal to Conservatives Variety snl shane gillis Saturday Night Live Sarah Silverman racism Media Front Page Stories Featured Story comedy Amy Schumer

The controversy behind Shane Gillis, the comedian hired and then subsequently fired comedian has made the rounds around the internet, but in case you missed it, my colleague Alex Parker detailed how Gillis lost his job thanks to cancel culture once it was revealed he had said “racist” things during a podcast.

(READ: Norm Macdonald Responds To New Comedian Shane Gillis’s ‘SNL’ Firing: ‘This Means WAR’)

Now, according to an article in Variety, the claim has been made that Gillis was hired on in the first place in order to appeal to conservatives which had largely abandoned SNL thanks to its hard-left leaning stance:

According to sources, the long-running NBC comedy show and series mastermind Lorne Michaels were actively looking to cast a comedian for its new season who would appeal to more conservative viewers. This was meant to counteract the appearance of a liberal bias on the show, given that it has seen a major resurgence in popularity in recent years with Alec Baldwin regularly portraying President Donald Trump while other cast members and guest stars have played members of his administration and those in his orbit.

It should be noted that Variety does not list who these “sources” are and, as such, this story may be a false rumor altogether. However, given that a poll in March found that 61 percent of Americans don’t watch SNL, it’s probably true that Michaels is looking to attract more viewers.

Given the left’s view of the right, it wouldn’t be too far out of the realm of possibility to assume that they believe bringing someone on who has made racist remarks in the past would make right-wingers come back. Whether or not Gillis’s words were actually racist, or an observation about racist people can be made, but the point is that SNL brass thought it racist, and looked to appeal to conservatives by bringing someone on who would use this kind of edgy language.

If the story is true and that is the case, then the left has no idea what a typical conservative believes or values.

Interestingly enough, edgy humor seems to be fine with the left so long as it appeals to the left. Any slip-ups can easily be forgiven if they vote the right way. Sarah Silverman can do blackface and still have a career. While she did lose a role in a film over it, she continues to get work.

Amy Schumer also told a racist joke about how Hispanic men are rapists and yet, continues to enjoy a steady stream of success.

Perhaps Gillis will recover from this and get work, however, I wouldn’t get my hopes up.

Former Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy suffers heart attack

Westlake Legal Group bauhaus Former Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy suffers heart attack Variety Jem Aswad fox-news/entertainment/music fnc/entertainment fnc article 1fd7db0e-3734-572c-9608-919f4cb2f29d

Singer Peter Murphy was rushed to a New York hospital Tuesday evening after suffering shortness of breath that was later revealed to be a heart attack, according to his rep.

The longtime Bauhaus singer was forced to postpone Tuesday’s scheduled concert at the Greenwich Village venue Le Poisson Rouge, where he has been performing a residency comprised of his solo albums and one evening of David Bowie songs.

The concerts scheduled for Aug. 13, 15, 16, 18 and 19, have been postponed, with dates to be determined. Ticket buyers will have their tickets transferred to the corresponding rescheduled date, or can request a refund by emailing info@lprnyc.com by 5 p.m. ET on August 30, 2019.

Cardiologist Jason Song, MD of Lenox Hill Hospital, treated the singer and issued the following statement:

“Mr. Murphy was admitted for treatment of a myocardial infarction. He had two stents placed in his right coronary artery and was started on medications to manage his heart condition. Due to HIPAA regulations we cannot reveal further details of his condition. He is still in the hospital for continued monitoring of his condition.”

In a statement, Murphy’s family said: “We would like to thank the fans for their undying support and hope that Peter will be back on stage with a refreshed heart, stronger than before!”

The staff of Le Poisson Rouge said in a statement, “All of us at LPR are devastated by this news. Peter’s performance and presence over the past twelve days has been amazing – both onstage and off. We wish Peter a swift and full recovery and look forward to his successful return to LPR.”

CBS, Viacom shares drop amid merger plans

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-9f936890f00a4610943226d0eb94e46f CBS, Viacom shares drop amid merger plans Variety Staff Variety fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment fnc/media fnc article a3003a5c-4bbe-5056-a5dd-19145618f488

Shares of media-industry stocks fell in tandem with an overwhelmingly negative market, which offset enthusiasm for the merger of Viacom and CBS and other parts of the sector.

Shares of Viacom were off $2.49, or 8.52%, in Wednesday trading, down to $26.72 from $29.21. Shares of CBS, meanwhile, were off $4.05, or 8.32%, down to $44.65 from $47.54.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted Wednesday after investors were spooked by the bond market as well as weak economic data from Germany and China.

CBS, VIACOM AGREE TO MERGE, FORMING A $28B ENTERTAINMENT FIRM

During an investor call Tuesday, executives from both CBS and Viacom made their pitch for the power of the combined entity, which would operate the CBS television network, the Showtime pay-cable service, the Paramount movie studio and the Nickelodeon kids-media unit. They suggested the company could capture more revenue from a new emphasis on streaming video, advanced advertising and affiliate revenue.

Wall Street analysts see the rationale for the deal, but have cautioned against too much optimism about it. “Judging by the tepid and languid reaction, the new company will have to work extra hard to prove the financial merits of this combination,” said Michael Nathanson, a media analyst with MoffettNathanson. Others see a need for the combined company to keep buying more assets to stay competitive. “The firm may need to continue to bulk up via M&A to compete with its much larger peers like Disney, WarnerMedia, and NBCUniversal,” said Neil Mackler, a senior equity analyst at Morningstar.

Investor Mario Gabelli said his funds hold about 5 million preferred voting shares in Viacom, the shares that give the Redstone family, which governs both companies through its National Amusements Inc. movie-exhibition firm,  iron-clad control of both CBS and Viacom. He was not happy to see the preferred Viacom shares valued at the same rate as the non-voting shares.

“From the big picture view, I’m glad they got it done. I need a little extra juice for the voting stock,” Gabelli told Variety on Wednesday. He said he planned to reach out to the company and explore his legal options according to Delaware law, where Viacom is incorporated.  But he said he would also be realistic about weighing the cost of litigation versus the return. “Even if they gave me $3 more a share, that’s about a quarter of the severance of the CEOs that have left. This is not anything that anybody is going to worry about,” he said.

Shares of other big media components also fell Wednesday. Shares of Fox Corp. were off 3.91%, or $1.37 a share. Shares of Walt Disney Company fell 3.04%, or $4.16 a share. Shares of Comcast, owned of NBCUniversal, tumbled 2.51%, or $1.09. And shares of AT&T, owner of WarnerMedia, fell 2.21%, or 77 cents a share.

David Spade Offers a Refreshing A-List Attitude & New Late-Night Option for Those Tired of the Political Pounding

Westlake Legal Group microphone-1209816_1280-620x413 David Spade Offers a Refreshing A-List Attitude & New Late-Night Option for Those Tired of the Political Pounding Variety Uncategorized The Daily Mail Television Politics lights out with david spade Hollywood Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment donald trump democrats david spade Culture Comedy Central Allow Media Exception

 

 

In an interview published by Variety Tuesday, actor/comedian David Spade revealed just how utterly woke he is. And by “woke,” I mean awake — to the world around him.

David clearly isn’t wholly blinded by a Hollywood bubble. He knows what most civilians well realize: that America is comprised of people with all sorts of viewpoints. That both the Left and the Right are in any given audience.

Judging from comments made by many in Tinseltown, there are more than a few who fail to notice this.

Discussing his upcoming late-night talk show — which will consist of a monologue, a panel of guests, and on-location pieces — the SNL alum explained it will focus on pop culture rather than the politics which seem to rule much of contemporary night-time talkies.

To quote Revelation, “Here is wisdom:”

“I don’t want half the crowd tuning me out.”

Nicely done!

He went on to say he’s “just not that smart,” and that “there are other guys doing it better.”

“I still like to make fun of everyone and what they are doing,” Spade explained, “but it’s more good-natured.”

I like it.

And he’s right: Nothing’s wrong with a bit of ribbing of our elected leaders; but when a show turns into a national political party’s convention — as many appear to with regularity — for a portion of the butts in the seats, the train’s substantially derailed.

Joe Dirt continued:

“When people do things, I think it’s fair game to make a few jokes, and then you move on — not too personal, of course.”

He made things similarly clear to The Daily Mail recently:

“The country is going to work or not work without me involved. So I will stay away and let all the other celebrities handle fixing that. At this point, it would be just piling on.”

David wants to offer “a non-political fun show.”

Sounds fantastic.

Lights Out with David Spade debuts on Comedy Central July 29th after The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Check it out if you want something different than the regular ranting rigmarole.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson plays real-life hero as ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ premiere delayed by electrical sparks

Saturday night’s premiere of “Hobbs & Shaw” was brought to a halt following a brief electrical issue in the Dolby Theater.

Reports from inside the venue say an electrical grid toward the front of the theater started sparking about 30 minutes into the screening, causing flashes and loud popping sounds to fill the room. The sparks then moved upward from the floor in the center of the orchestra and back toward a block of seats.

Although security did not evacuate the theater, a number of panicked guests fled from the venue, leading to widespread confusion.
