podcast controversy! headgum network trying to poach shows

Collapse )
some background basically Dustin Marshall used to work for Earwolf (Comedy Bang Bang, How Did This Get Made, the superior program Hollywood Handbook) and left to make his own network called Feral Audio (Call Chelea Peretti, Doughboys) years ago, and now the Headgum network (which is from some collegehumor guys Jake and Amir idk their show but I like HIgh and Mighty) is trying to talk to shows and scope people out to move over to them. right now hosts and guests sort of cross over freely between whatever networks but hes implying that this kind of ~businessy behavour isnt in the 'spirit of podcasting' and the fact that they have so many shows on their roster is just a cash grab rather than something theyre cultivating

Taran Killam responds after being cut from SNL

- Had a 7-year contract so this upcoming year would technically be his last, but then heard they weren't going to pick up his contract and was never given a reason why.

- Set to direct 'Why We’re Killing Gunther' starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, and there are 2 months of post-production that would have bled into the 'SNL' production schedule, but he had the okay from them.

- Still says SNL was his dream job.

Brad Pitt Wants David Fincher to Direct 'World War Z' Sequel

Pitt apparently is in talks with David Fincher to direct the follow-up to the 2013 movie. Pitt is set to star in and produce the next "World War Z" movie, which is expected to start filming in early 2017 (the movie first had a release date set to June 9, 2017 but after losing director J.A. Bayona, it is expected to have a delay.

The duo worked together in "Se7en", "Fight Club" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button".

The first movie grossed $540 million worldwide. Not much is known about the sequel other than it still being set during a zombie apocalypse.

Fincher is not very fond of sequels, the only one he directed was Alien 3 and probably doesn't have good memories of that.

Gabby Douglas receives criticism about behavior during National Anthem

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After competing on uneven bars with the USA women's gymnastics team and getting a team gold medal, 2012 all-around gold medalist Gabby Douglas is under criticism for not behaving "patriotically" enough during the medal ceremony.

Her teammates all covered their hearts with their hands during the US national anthem, but Gabby remained emotionless and her hands were to her sides.

It's causing a lot of conversation (criticism) on social media. Gabby addressed the response on her Twitter account:

"In response to a few tweets I saw tonight, I always stand at attention out of respect for our country whenever the national anthem is played. I never meant any disrespect and apologize if I offended anyone. I’m so overwhelmed at what our team accomplished today and overjoyed that we were able to bring home another gold for our country!”

Hugh Grant doesn't believe humans are meant to be monogamous

In an interview with Howard Stern, Hugh Grant talked about marriage, relationships and monogamy.

"I can see the lovely aspect if you marry exactly the right person — your best friend and it's cozy and it's lovely. But, people make so many mistakes. Do I think human beings are meant to be in 40-year-long monogamous, faithful relationships? No, no, no. Whoever said they were? Only the Bible or something. No one ever said that was a good idea. I think there's something unromantic about marriage. You're closing yourself off. I always admire the French and the Italians who are very devoted to their marriages. They take them extremely seriously, but it is understood that there might be other visitors at 5 o'clock in the afternoon. You just never boast about [it]. They never say anything, but that's what keeps marriages together."


Do you agree with Hugh?

Potentially Problematic Bae & Scene Stealer Jay Hernandez Defends 'Suicide Squad'

  • When asked about how savage the critics have been about SS, the 'Crazy/Beautiful' bae said: “I think it sucks. I mean, you know, obviously we worked hard and tried to give the fans what they wanted, and it’s, it’s weird that like that some of the criticism I heard was that it was too much like a comic book you know what I’m saying?"

  • Unfortunately, he cotinued: "In terms of like, you have these characters uh, uh, being objectified like Harley Quinn. I’m like if, I mean there’s certain elements that are just part of being a comic book, and if you’re trying to portray that on a film you have to sort of be true to that because if you don’t the fans of the comics are going to be offended ya know, so it’s like you’re trying to satisfy a lot of people.”

  • He then says that critics can kiss his ass, etc.


Do you think adaptations have to be loyal to the source material to the point of reproducing its problematic aspects, ONTD? Is Jay a problematic fave now? TYFYA!

Lisa Marie Presley Allegedly Checks Into Rehab, Details of Divorce Leaked (to the National Enquirer)

I won't be cracking jokes like the last two posts because now it's no longer funny, unfortunately.

According to the Daily Mail and National Enquirer:

  • Lisa Marie, the 48-year-old daughter of Elvis Presley, has allegedly checked into a Los Angeles rehab center for alcohol and prescription drug addiction after filing for divorce from her husband of ten years.

  • Lisa Marie is determined to get her life back on track, while her husband is still MIA.

  • According to the NE, her husband Michael Lockwood was verbally and physically abusive to Lisa Marie, with the two having "knock down, drag out fights," which left Lisa Marie feeling "pummeled." He also fat shamed her when she gained weight during her pregnancy and any time she gained weight after dropping down to 115 lbs.

  • Lisa is asking for supervised visitation for her husband with their children after he overdosed on drugs. He also would hide purchases in storage lockers so she wouldn't find out he was stealing her money.

  • Her husband also apparently liked to wear her clothes, which weirded her out.

  • Although this dude sounds awful, the NE decided that Lisa Marie is the problem because she has temper tantrums???

Best of luck, Lisa Marie.

Casting for Young Lando Calrissian Begins

It was obvious from Empire Strikes Back that Lando and Han go way back so it should really come as no surprise that the character will appear in Han Solo's spinoff film.

One assumes that potential actors will have to test against Alden Ehrenreich, who is playing young Han Solo in the film directed by Phil Miller and Chris Lord.

There are no official names on the shortlist and LucasFilm declined to comment, but somehow Donald Glover has become a frontrunner. Don't let that stop you from fancasting though.

who would you cast?

Former Warner Bros employee pens open letter to CEO Kevin Tsujihara

+ On Zack Snyder: Zack Snyder is not delivering. Is he being punished? Assistants who were doing fantastic work certainly were. People in finance and in marketing and in IT. They had no say in a movie called Batman V Superman only having 8 minutes of Batman fighting Superman in it, that ends because their moms have the same name. Snyder is a producer on every DC movie. He is still directing Justice League. He is being rewarded with more opportunity to get more people laid off. I’m assuming you yourself haven’t been financially affected in any real way. You and your studio are the biggest lesson about life one can learn: The top screws up and the bottom suffers. Peter Jackson phones it in and a marketing supervisor has to figure out a plan B for house payments.
