6 (3) questions with SundanceTV's “Hap and Leonard” star Michael K Williams + preview for ep 105

A SundanceTV Original Series is based on the novels by Joe R. Lansdale, starring James Purefoy (The Following), Michael Kenneth WIlliams (Boardwalk Empire) and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men). Set in the late 1980s the six-hour series event follows Hap Collins (James Purefoy), Leonard Pine (Michael Kenneth Williams), and Hap’s ex-wife Trudy (Christina Hendricks) who resurfaces with a deal they can’t refuse. And a simple get-rich-quick scheme snowballs into bloody mayhem.

On playing a Texan:
I am from East Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York. It’s hot playing a Texan, very hot. The dialect, the specific type of twang in their speech, is very specific and cultural. The swagger, the clothes, the cowboy hats, cowboy boots, jeans and T-shirt — it’s all American, and it’s really fun to play.

On working with his co-star James Purefoy:
James is a very dear friend of mine; I love him to death. We first got a chance to work together on a project that we filmed in South Africa. We trolled around Capetown and had a lot of fun. I always felt it was unfinished business between him and me, so I was really happy that we were able to reunite for this.

New study finds that millennials think Madonna is really lame

A new research study out of USC finds that millenials find Madonna to be a "toxic" figure.

1,000 young adults were interviewed for the study, and the majority of respondents said that Madonna has ruined her 30-year legacy after numerous failed attempts at maintaining her relevance.

Millennials find Madonna to be inauthentic, desperate, and embarrassing.

People's perception of individuals who collaborated with Madonna on her latest album was also negatively impacted by Madonna's damaged brand: Nicki Minaj, Diplo, and Avicii were all rated less culturally relevant after having worked with Madonna on her latest album Rebel Heart.

The research also shows that millennials find Taylor Swift, Adele, Zayn Malik, Justin Bieber, and PewDiePie to be way cooler than Madonna.

James Franco: "I'm gay up to the point of intercourse."

In a recent cover story and interview with Rolling Stone magazine, James Franco discuss his fascination with queer art.
When I was studying at NYU, I took classes in critical studies, and one of my favorites was on queer cinema. We've told the straight, heteronormative stories ad nauseam by now, in our movies, our shows, our commercials — everywhere. I think it's healthy to make work that disrupts and questions that, and shows alternative narratives. That's what an artist should do.

He also clarifies his own sexuality:
I'm gay in my art and straight in my life. I'm also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse.

I can go with that explanation because I do not understand how he can have dodged to perform that song for about 3 months now. Also, I have been listening to this album non stop since Thursday, Zayn really came through with this album

#PISSALERT : Henry Cavill tells story of pissing off hotel roof

On Late Night with Seth Meyers, Henry Cavill told the story of how on a trip to meet director Zach Snyder, he got sloppy drunk (or as he called it "jetlagged") and passed out overnight, locked out of his room and naked. He had to piss desperately so after briefly considering a potted plant, he decided to go up to the fire escape to the roof where he though there'd be a bathroom up there. There wasn't one so he just pissed off the top of the hotel. He then got escorted by a security guard back into his room after contacting the receptionist.

This is the same appearance where he described redesigning his Superman costume for easy piss access.

Reese Witherspoon: Female directors aren't allowed to fail

“As a male director, if your first movie out of the gate is not very good, you’re definitely going to get a second movie...

Posted by Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media on Friday, March 25, 2016

“As a male director, if your first movie out of the gate is not very good, you’re definitely going to get a second movie and a third movie — now you have a reel,” the actress says. “If you’re a woman and you direct your first movie and it’s not very good, it’s terrifying because you might not work again, and we don’t get that second, third, fourth, and fifth chance to make it right. [Studios are] not plucking women from Sundance and saying, ‘Hey, direct Jurassic [World].”

A DGA diversity study, released this past December, showed that of the 347 feature films released in the U.S. between 2013 and 2014, only 6.4 percent were directed by women — 5.1 percent caucasian females and 1.3 percent minority females

Reese also mentions that “there’s a lack of opportunity at a very ground level — interns, getting girls from different walks of life to tell their stories, to write their stories”

Eva Longoria emphasizes the importance of creating more opportunities for young women to build a foundation in the entertainment industry from the bottom to the top.

Witherspoon and Longoria have founded companies focused on producing stories by and about women; Witherspoon’s Pacific Standard backed 2014’s Wild. Longoria’s UnbeliEVAble Entertainment is currently producing her comeback television series, NBC’s Telenovela.

- She sat down with Today (video at source) to discuss her birthday, her inspiration, and what she's looking forward to.
- Says she never expected to reach 100. In high school she and a friend decided 80 was a good cut-off.
- Growing up she found children's books of the time uninteresting and didn't begin reading until 2nd grade.
- "Books in those days, back in the 1920s, had been published in England, and the children had nannies and pony carts and they seemed like a bunch of sissies to me," she told TODAY.
- Cleary's own books burst with memorable and relatable characters.

ONTD Original: Iconic pop queens of the 70s

During the 1970s, Americans made large strides toward sex and gender equality, and members of groups considered minorities began to demand equal rights and treatment under the law. The second-wave feminist movement of the 1960s greatly influenced female musicians of the 70s, enabling women working in all areas of the music industry to assume more control over their careers. Here are some of the most successful female artists of the 1970s, whose voices could be heard all over pop radio at the time.

Kristin Cavallari Concocts Own Baby Formula

Which doctors say can prove lethal to infants

- Kristin Cavallari, a known anti-vaccine supporter, was featured on a People magazine article.
- People published Kristin's recipe of "organic" infant formula with goats’ milk powder as the main ingredient.
- She developed the formula with husband, Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler.
- Doctors, however, don’t recommend goats milk for babies under a year old especially the unpasteurized variety as it has been attributed to cause abnormalities, anemia, allergic reactions including life-threatening shock and infections when given to infants.
- People has since deleted the article.
