Late-night hosts weigh in on porn star Stormy Daniels suing Trump

Chief of Staff Stormy Daniels?

Stephen Colbert jokingly floated the possibility on Wednesday’s episode of The Late Show, as he discussed the porn star’s lawsuit against President Donald Trump. Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford), who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006, is arguing that the nondisclosure agreement she previously abided by is invalid because Trump never signed it.

“So this is the thing Trump thought was too sketchy to put his name on?” asked Colbert. “What about Trump University … or Don Jr.?”

Daniels and the president were also a topic on the latest edition of Seth Meyers’ “A Closer Look” segment. The Late Night host weighed in on the $130,000 transaction between Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and Daniels being reported to the Treasury Department.

“Of course it got flagged as suspicious,” said Meyers. “The personal lawyer to a presidential candidate secretly wired $130,000 to someone named Stormy Daniels a month before the election. That’s the equivalent of having a folder on your desktop labeled, ‘Just tax stuff, no porn.’”

Michael B. Jordan says his company will use inclusion riders for all projects

By | March 7, 2018

This is our king.

After Frances McDormand’s rousing Oscar acceptance speech shone a spotlight on inclusion riders and their importance in improving gender and racial representation in Hollywood, Michael B. Jordan has announced that his production company will use the initiative on all future projects.

“In support of the women & men who are leading this fight, I will be adopting the Inclusion Rider for all projects produced by my company Outlier Society,” the Black Panther star wrote Wednesday on social media. “I’ve been privileged to work with powerful woman & persons of color throughout my career & it’s Outlier’s mission to continue to create for talented individuals going forward.”

At the conclusion of his post, Jordan urged people interested in supporting the cause to research the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, a program dedicated to studying and developing solutions to tackle inequality.

“I just found out about this last week,” McDormand said of inclusion riders following her speech on Sunday. “There has always been available, to everybody that does a negotiation on a film, an inclusion rider, which means that you can ask for and/or demand at least 50 percent diversity in not only the casting but also the crew. And so the fact that I just learned that after 35 years of being in the film business… we’re not going back. So the whole idea of women trending? No. No trending. African Americans trending? No, no trending. It changes now. And I think the inclusion rider will have something to do with that.”

A.P. Bio clip: Jack gives his students an update on his sex life

By | March 7, 2018

Jack Griffin is no ordinary teacher. And neither are his lessons, which include regular updates on his sex life.

In an exclusive clip from Thursday’s new episode of A.P. Bio, Jack (Glenn Howerton) answers an important question from one of his students: Did he “get some” on his recent date? “Thank you for asking, but no, I did not get any,” he replies.

For “practical reasons,” Jack, who has been commuting to New York just for the women, finds himself considering the dating scene in Toledo. Upon explaining his type of woman, Jack puts Victor (Jacob Houston) on the spot by asking what kind of girl he likes. The bashful student goes into a full panic and refuses to answer until Jack suggests it could be a family member or a “big doll.”

Watch the clip above to see if Victor is in fact attracted to dolls. A.P. Bio airs Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

Charlize Theron needs some help in new Tully trailer

By | March 6, 2018

Charlize Theron was a Young Adult for Jason Reitman, and now, she’s an overworked and under-rested mom in need of help.

The Oscar-winning actress and Oscar-nominated director have reunited for Tully, an upcoming film penned by Young Adult writer Diablo Cody. In the new trailer, Theron stars as Marlo, a mother of three whose struggles include dropping a cell phone on her baby. But her brother (Mark Duplass) has the solution: A night nanny.

“I don’t want a stranger in my house,” she declares in the new trailer. “That’s like a Lifetime movie where the nanny tries to kill the family and the mom survives and she has to walk with a cane at the end.”

Enter Tully (Mackenzie Davis), the young nanny who Theron soon forms an unique bond with (no word on if she’s the murdering-type).

“I don’t think I could’ve done this film without having experienced motherhood yet, so this film came at the perfect time for me,” Theron recently told PEOPLE. “There’s so much pressure on parents to balance everything in their life so perfectly and to do it with a smile. So I wanted to tell a story that shows parents, ‘Hey, life is a lot harder for us, and it’s okay if you have to get help.’”

Watch the trailer above. Tully opens in theaters on April 20.

Colbert stages divine intervention to convince Oprah to run for president

By | March 6, 2018

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

In an effort to get Oprah Winfrey to run for president, Stephen Colbert turned to divine intervention.

During Tuesday’s Late Show, Winfrey reaffirmed that she has no plans to run for president, echoing previous comments that she had yet to receive a sign from God saying she should do otherwise. But right when Colbert was ready to move on, the big man himself appeared on the roof of the Ed Sullivan Theater.

“I’m a huge fan,” an awestruck God declared to Winfrey, who replied, “That’s great to hear, I’m a big fan of yours too, God.” Understandably, this left him giddy. “Wow, Oprah knows who I am?” he said. “I can’t wait to tell Jesus.”

“I’ve never looked outside for other people to tell me when I should be making a move,” Winfrey said last month on 60 Minutes Overtime. “And wouldn’t I know? Because if God actually wanted me to run, wouldn’t God kind of tell me? And I haven’t heard that.”

Watch the full clip above. The Late Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.

Charmed reboot finds third and final sister

By | March 6, 2018

The coven is complete.

The CW’s “fierce, funny, feminist” reboot of the The WB cult series has added Madeleine Mantock (Into the Badlands), joining Melonie Diaz (Fruitvale Station) and Sarah Jeffery (Shades of Blue) in the three lead roles, EW has confirmed.

In the pilot for the prospective series, Mantock, Diaz, and Jeffery take the place of the original stars Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, and Shannen Doherty, who was replaced by Rose McGowan in season 4.

The reboot from Jane the Virgin boss Jennie Snyder Urman will follow three sisters who, shortly after the tragic death of their mother, learn they are witches. Despite the shocking discovery, they must soon band together to vanquish powerful demons and topple the patriarchy.

Mantock stars as Macy, a driven and brilliant geneticist who’s completely shocked by the their supernatural self-discovery, while Diaz plays Mel, an outspoken activist who has lost her way. Jeffery rounds out the trio as Madison, the baby sister who doesn’t want being a witch to conflict with her hopes of joining a sorority.

Michelle Obama has a dance party with little girl who admired her portrait

By | March 6, 2018

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

After going viral for being in awe of Michelle Obama’s official portrait, Parker Curry got the chance to leave the former first lady in awe of her dance moves.

Last week, a photo was shared on social media of the 2-year-old adorably admiring artist Amy Sherald’s new painting of Obama at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. The viral image caught the attention of the subject, leading to Obama and Curry meeting Tuesday for some “Shake It Off” time.

“Parker, I’m so glad I had the chance to meet you today (and for the dance party),” the former FLOTUS tweeted, while also sharing a video of the duo dancing to Taylor Swift’s hit song. “Keep on dreaming big for yourself…and maybe one day I’ll proudly look up at a portrait of you!”

Check out the original photo of Parker below and Obama’s video above.

Jordan Peele introduces his Oscar to his Emmy

By | March 5, 2018

Oscar, meet Emmy.

Following his history-making victory at the Oscars for Best Original Screenplay, Get Out mastermind Jordan Peele needed to introduce his new award to a special lady in his life. Well, make that two. After Peele’s wife, comedian Chelsea Peretti, got to hold the Oscar, Peele put the trophy face-to-face with the Emmy he won in 2016 for Key & Peele.

“This is exactly what it looked like watching my wife give birth,” tweeted Peele, alongside a photo of the two awards. (The couple welcomed their first son last July.)

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

“This means so much to me,” Peele said as he accepted the award, becoming the first black screenwriter to win the category. “I stopped writing this movie about 20 times because I thought it was impossible, I thought it wasn’t gonna work, I thought no one would ever make this movie — but I kept coming back to it because I knew if someone let me make this movie people would hear it and people would see it.”

And now he’s only a Grammy and Tony away from an EGOT. Or two Grammys, two Tonys, an Oscar, and an Emmy away from Robert Lopez-status.

SNL spoofs Oscars with sexual harassment awards The Grabbies

By | March 4, 2018

Awards season may be coming to a close with this weekend’s Oscars, but Saturday Night Live worked in one more event to hand out accolades: The Grabbies!

Following a year of many high-profile members of Hollywood being accused of sexual harassment and misconduct, SNL tapped into that for the awards show, which “celebrates this year’s worst behavior in entertainment.”

Live from the red carpet, Danny Kilmartin (Beck Bennett) and Yolanda Beaks (Cecily Strong) interviewed some of the night’s big honorees, including Tom Sturgeson (Alex Moffat). “It’s really upsetting to be here tonight,” said the Handsiest Actor nominee. “I gave out a lot of unwanted massages to my female costars. Also, I showed an intern my penis and said, ‘Any ideas?’”

Strong’s character sure thinks it “sounds like award-winning behavior,” but Sturgeson doesn’t want to jinx it since the “competition is so stiff.” “I’m sorry… poor choice of words,” he admitted. “I just mean everyone’s rock hard to be here.”

Among the other categories are Most Open Robe, Best Non Apology, and the Cecil B. Molestin’ Award. “When I started out in this business I was just a kid with two hands, one floppy penis, and no sense of boundaries,” said lifetime achievement honoree Ronald Kellogg (Kenan Thompson), whose date was a prostitute (Heidi Gardner). “And now look at me! Praise to the devil. And if the clean-up crew at the Peninsula Hotel is watching: Get to bed, you guys. You’re gonna have a big morning tomorrow.”

While Charles Barkley popped in as Best Non Apology nominee Tim Franklin (“His hand is already on the small of my back,” Strong announces at the top of his interview), the most historic nomination goes to Catherine LeBourge (Aidy Bryant), The Grabbies’ first ever female nominee. “I bit off an intern’s penis,” revealed LeBourge, who worked on The Shape of Water. “It was actually my job to get the fish horny.”

Jennifer Lawrence, Jodie Foster reportedly presenting Best Actress at Oscars

By | March 2, 2018

To replace Casey Affleck, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has landed two Oscar-winning actresses.

Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster are set to present the award for Best Actress at Sunday’s 90th Annual Academy Awards, according to Variety.

Traditionally, the Best Actress trophy is presented by the previous year’s Best Actor winner, but Affleck, who won in 2017 for Manchester by the Sea, previously announced he would not attend.

Affleck’s victory was marred by the resurfacing of accusations regarding alleged misconduct by two women who worked on his film I’m Still Here; they filed sexual harassment lawsuits against him in 2010. The claims were settled out of court, and Affleck has consistently denied the allegations.

Variety also reports that Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren will present Best Actor instead of 2017 Best Actress winner Emma Stone.

Representatives for The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences did not immediately reply to EW’s request for comment.

The Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live on Sunday, March, 4, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.

Rick Ross found unresponsive, rushed to hospital: Reports

By | March 2, 2018

Rick Ross has reportedly been rushed to a Miami area hospital after being found unresponsive.

According to a Davie Police Department report obtained by PEOPLE and first published by The Blast, medical personnel were called to the Grammy-nominated rapper’s home early Thursday, where they found Ross “breathing heavy,” “unresponsive,” and “slobbing out the mouth.”

When he came to, Ross reportedly became “combative” with emergency medical crews, leading to officers being called to the scene, PEOPLE reports.

According to TMZ, Ross is now hooked up to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) machine, which has taken over the function of his heart and lungs.

Representatives for Ross did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.

As noted in the police report, Ross has a history of seizures, having suffered two within a span of hours in 2011.

Dolly Parton says she and her 9 to 5 costars are in for the reboot

By | March 1, 2018

Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin are ready to clock back in.

In a recent interview with ABC News’ Nightline, Parton said a follow-up to their hit 1980 comedy 9 to 5 is in the works and all three of the original stars are game to return.

“All these years we’ve talked about doing a sequel to 9 to 5 and it never made any real sense until just recently,” she said, citing the current cultural conversation about equal pay and sexual harassment in the workplace. “We decided that we are going to do another one. We are trying to get the script and all that, everyone is very interested and we’ve all agreed that we’d love to do it if it’s right.”

Parton says the film would focus on three new ladies, who upon dealing with similar workplace issues track down the original trio. Deadline Hollywood reported Wednesday that the plan is for original co-writer Patricia Resnick to pen the new script alongside Rashida Jones. But Parton says they’d better not take too long.

“I told them we better get after it or it’s going to be 95 instead of 9 to 5,” she quipped.

Watch Parton’s comments above.

Cobra Kai trailer: William Zabka takes on a protégé in Karate Kid sequel series

By | March 1, 2018

There’s a new sensei in town — and he could care less about “wax on, wax off.”

After serving as the antagonist of the original Karate Kid, William Zabka’s Johnny Lawrence steps to the center of the mat as the protagonist of in the new YouTube Red series Cobra Kai. As evidenced in the latest trailer, the Karate Kid legacy continues with Lawrence reopening his old dojo and taking on his very own protégé.

And there are three rules at Cobra Kai: No fear, no pain, and unlike past senseis, Lawrence doesn’t “give a s—” how you scrub his windows.

While he doesn’t appear in the trailer, Lawrence’s old rival Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) will return in the series, which premieres later this year.

Trump to meet with members of video game industry about violent content

By | March 1, 2018

After suggesting a “rating system” might be needed for video games to help curb youth violence, President Donald Trump is set to meet with members of the industry on the issue.

On Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders revealed that the meeting will take place next week. “This is going to be an ongoing process and something that we don’t expect to happen overnight,” she stated. “But something that we’re going to be engaged in and continue to look for the best ways possible to make sure we’re doing everything we can to protect schools across the country,”

Following the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead, the president placed some of the blame for youth violence on the internet, movies, and video games.

“We have to look at the internet because a lot of bad things are happening to young kids and young minds and their minds are being formed, and we have to do something about maybe what they’re seeing and how they’re seeing it,” he said. “And also video games. I’m hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts. And you go the further step, and that’s the movies. You see these movies, and they’re so violent. And yet a kid is able to see the movie if sex isn’t involved, but killing is involved, and maybe they have to put a rating system for that.”

He added, “The fact is that you’re having movies come out that are so violent, with the killing and everything else, that maybe that’s another thing that we’re going to have to discuss.”

Trump did not acknowledge that in the U.S., video games and movies are already issued ratings based on their violence, language, and mature content by the Entertainment Software Rating Board and Motion Picture Association of America, respectively.

His comments on video game violence were met negatively on social media, with many people pointing to Australia’s lack of gun violence, while still having the same video games.

Charlize Theron goes on an expletive-filled rant in NSFW Gringo clip

By | February 28, 2018

Have you ever wanted to see Charlize Theron drop 10 f-bombs in one minute? Then this exclusive Gringo clip is just for you.

In the upcoming action comedy, the Oscar-winner plays Elaine, the head of a pharmaceutical company, who along with Richard (Joel Edgerton), has sent their underling Harold (David Oyelowo) to Mexico to deliver their new weed pill. But due to their shady business, Harold has been kidnapped by the cartel and held for a $5 million ransom.

After Elaine hilariously mocks Richard, he suggests that it wouldn’t be the worst thing if Harold didn’t come back. “We aren’t leaving Harold in f—ing Mexico, that’s crazy,” declares Elaine, prompting Richard to remind her that she said they should put their employee out of his misery. “I say crazy s— all the time, I don’t mean it literally.” Richard once again chimes in, pointing out that she had said literally. “Oh my f—,” screams Elaine. “I meant not literally literally; literally is something people say now. It doesn’t mean a f—ing thing.”

It’s going to be okay, though, because Richard “knows a guy.” (Hopefully it works out better than the last guy).

Watch the video above. Gringo opens in theaters on March 9.

Big Little Lies brings back Adam Scott for season 2

By | February 27, 2018

At least one Elvis will return to Big Little Lies.

After previously revealing that all our favorite Monterey ladies will be back for the second season of the HBO drama, the network announced Tuesday that Adam Scott will be joining them.

The Parks and Recreation alum, who currently stars on Fox’s Ghosted, will reprise his role as Ed Mackenzie, the bearded husband of Reese Witherspoon’s Madeline. In season 2, Ed is “forced to confront major challenges in his marriage” — with some of those troubles presumably stemming from Madeline’s prior affair with a local theater director.

Season 2 is based on a story from BLL author Liane Moriarty, with David E. Kelley penning all seven episodes. Andrea Arnold takes over directing duties from Jean-Marc Vallée for the new season, which HBO says “will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode … the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.”

By | February 27, 2018

Alec Baldwin is jumping from Saturdays to Sundays.

An Emmy winner for his time on Saturday Night Live as Donald Trump, Baldwin has officially landed a talk show at ABC, EW has confirmed. The network has ordered eight episodes for later this year, but a sneak peek of Sundays with Alec Baldwin will air after this Sunday’s Academy Awards and feature sit-downs with Jerry Seinfeld and Kate McKinnon.

“Alec’s intellect, wit and wealth of life experience afford him a voice and perspective we haven’t seen before in this format,” added ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey. “When we shot the pilot, we knew immediately we had something special that we couldn’t wait to share. We are excited to be working on a series that showcases Alec as one of today’s most compelling conversationalists and highlights the type of intimate discussions that he has captured on his podcast for years.”

Talks between Baldwin and ABC, the network for which he hosts Match Game, were first reported in December.

THR first reported the news of the show’s official order.

Ryan Seacrest denies sexual misconduct allegations, says accuser asked for money

By | February 27, 2018

Ryan Seacrest is once again denying the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him, claiming his accuser asked him for money on multiple occasions.

The American Idol host’s latest statement comes on the heels of his former E! stylist Suzie Hardy going public with detailed accusations, telling Variety that Seacrest inappropriately groped her throughout their time working together. Hardy’s claims, which were first reported in November, previously prompted an investigation by E! The network announced earlier this month it found “insufficient evidence” and ended the inquiry into the host, who still has a professional relationship with the network and will still host its Oscars red carpet show this Sunday.

Now, the day after Hardy’s comments, Seacrest has responded, saying he supports the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements and applauds “all the brave souls who have come forward to share their stories.”

“Sadly, last fall I became one of the accused, which I promptly revealed proactively to the network involved and to the public,” he said in a statement sent to EW. “And to be equally clear, those accusations were then investigated by an independent third-party over the course of a two-month process and involved dozens of interviews that included me, the accuser and countless others. Ultimately, my name was cleared. I eagerly participated in the investigation in order to demonstrate my innocence because I know my truth, and I believe in due process.”

He continued, “Yesterday, Variety published a salacious story that revealed the specific claims against me for the first time – even though an independent third-party investigator found insufficient evidence to support the claims. Much to my dismay, Variety didn’t speak with me or bother to speak with other credible witnesses or even ask for any of the evidence that was obtained during the investigation when offered, all of which clearly challenged the veracity of the claims made against me.”

Seacrest added that Hardy repeatedly “offered…to withdraw her claims if I paid her millions of dollars. I refused.” He concluded, “I have worked extremely hard to achieve my success and I don’t take my opportunities for granted. I don’t want to accuse anyone of not telling the truth but in this case, I have no choice but to again deny the claims against me, remind people that I was recused of any wrongdoing, and put the matter to rest.”

Read the full statement below.

“Much has been said about the #MeToo and Times Up movement(s) and the importance of providing women and men with the opportunity to share their stories of workplace misconduct, in an effort to change our culture and the systemic inequalities that exist. I absolutely support this cause unequivocally and applaud all the brave souls who have come forward to share their stories.

Sadly, last fall I became one of the accused, which I promptly revealed proactively to the network involved and to the public. And to be equally clear, those accusations were then investigated by an independent third-party over the course of a two-month process and involved dozens of interviews that included me, the accuser and countless others. Ultimately, my name was cleared. I eagerly participated in the investigation in order to demonstrate my innocence because I know my truth, and I believe in due process.

Yesterday, Variety published a salacious story that revealed the specific claims against me for the first time – even though an independent third-party investigator found insufficient evidence to support the claims. Much to my dismay, Variety didn’t speak with me or bother to speak with other credible witnesses or even ask for any of the evidence that was obtained during the investigation when offered, all of which clearly challenged the veracity of the claims made against me.

This person who has accused me of horrible things offered, on multiple occasions, to withdraw her claims if I paid her millions of dollars. I refused. I have worked extremely hard to achieve my success and I don’t take my opportunities for granted. I don’t want to accuse anyone of not telling the truth but in this case, I have no choice but to again deny the claims against me, remind people that I was recused of any wrongdoing, and put the matter to rest.“

Hardy’s attorney, Howard King of King, Holmes, Paterno & Soriano, LLP, did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment, but King told Variety neither he nor Hardy had asked Seacrest, E!, or its corporate owners for any money.

Variety’s two co-editors in chief, Andrew Wallenstein and Claudia Eller, dispute Seacrest’s claim in a statement obtained by EW:

“Responding to a quote by Ryan Seacrest in a Hollywood Reporter story posted today, in which Seacrest claims that ‘Variety didn’t speak with me’ or even ask for evidence obtained during the investigation of sexual misconduct allegations, we want to set the record straight…We spent one hour on the phone yesterday (2/26) with Seacrest attorney, Andrew Baum and his publicist, Kelly Mullens Brown, speaking on background about the story that our reporter Dan Holloway was writing. We asked to speak to Seacrest directly and his reps declined to make him available. Seacrest’s reps claimed to have evidence discrediting the accuser, Suzie Hardy, but refused to provide that as well, citing legal restrictions.”
