Walking Dead actor compares Negan to Trump, Rick to Hillary

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Michael Cudlitz was asked about how the presidential candidates would fare in a zombie apocalypse.

"I think Trump would be more like Negan and [Hillary] Clinton would be more like Rick, kind of go with the political when you can but not afraid to kill everybody if they had to...  But Negan’s a little bit of a loose cannon, and Trump is a little bit of a loose cannon. And that’s not me being political. That’s by his own description, so yeah, I think we actually have our Negan and our Rick. And neither one is perfect.”

"A Little Life" to become TV series?!

Author Hanya Yanagihara writes: I know many of you have asked about the possibility of a cinematic adaptation, and after many months, I'm very happy to say that ALL has been optioned by the producer Scott Rudin (The Social Network, The Grand Budapest Hotel, There Will Be Blood, No Country for Old Men, etc.) and the amazing theater director Joe Mantello (Wicked, The Humans, Blackbird, Assassins, Love! Valour! Compassion!, etc.) as a limited series. Now it just has to be sold to a network or streaming service -- and we'll let you know when or if it is. Thank you, as always, for all of your interest and your love for the boys, and keep your fingers crossed! (Also, who should play Jude?)

Game of Thrones Producer to Develop Series about Wu Zetian

Christopher Newman, who has been a producer for Game of Thrones since the first season, has signed a deal with Starlight Media and K. Jam Media to develop and produce Empress, which has been commissioned as a 13-episode drama. Empress will tell the storied tale of the only female empress in the history of China — Wu Zetian, who ruled during the Tang dynasty (618-906 A.D.), a time of relative freedom for women. She was known for her wit, intelligence and humor as well as being ruthless, cunning and a political force to be reckoned with. The series will follow her ascent through the court of Emperor Tai Tsung; life as his favorite concubine — and ultimately her rise to power.

article | RP

Note: The article calls Wu Zetian China's only female empress, which literally doesn't make sense. She was China's first and only female emperor, a title she assumed once she'd decimated her rivals and declared the beginning of a new dynasty, after her husband's death.

Wu Zetian was covered by Jason Porath on his Rejected Princesses blog.

Nate Parker tries to do damage control with another interview with Variety

Collapse )Parker is now downplaying his co-writer Jean Celestin's involvement in the film (they were accused of perpetratating the rape together and Celestin was convicted): I wrote the screenplay by myself. I just did a lot of research. I hired a lot of people. I had researchers. I had all kinds of people. I just wanted people to feel whole.

Two prominent black directors speak on the condidtion of anonymity about supporting Parker.
Director 1:
I don’t like the timing of this. I’m not defending his actions, but something is wrong about the way it went down.
Director 2:
It worries me that a film and a guy with so much promise gets cut down a month before his masterpiece gets released. The last two years have proven how much our stories matter to this industry, and this seems like a way to muffle a very important piece of work.

Kardashian Instagram accounts break ad laws, says consumer group

-The Kardashians have numerous brands they associate with: these brands include Balmain to Calvin Klein to FitTea, but the family might soon have to make it clear what exactly those associations entail.

-Kim, Kylie, Khloe, Kendall and Kourtney were put on alert last week by consumer watchdog Truth In Advertising for failing to "disclose their relationships with the companies being promoted" in their posts, which is required by federal law (i.e. you have to make it clear you're getting paid to promote their brand #ad #spon)

-members of the Kardashian/Jenner family are engaged in deceptive marketing campaigns for various companies by routinely creating and publishing sponsored social media posts for such companies without clearly and conspicuously disclosing that they are paid representatives of those companies or that the posts are advertisements according to the source

-A letter threatens to file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission unless more than 100 allegedly deceptive photos are removed from the family's various Instagram accounts.

-Several of the photos in question have been removed from Kardashian and affiliate brand Instagram accounts as of Tuesday.

Nick Cannon talks about Mariah....again. This time about sex


Nick stopped by Amber Rose's talk showed and shared a tidbit about his sex life with his former source of finance, fame and relevance, Mariah Carey.

Amber asked if the pair had ever had sex to one of Mariah's songs. Nick stated that they have, this isn't the first time he had talked about this. In fact he goes on to say that the first time he mentioned it, Mariah was not happy. He did say it was a dream come true to be having sex with 1/2 billion dollars while listening to the voice of 1/2 billion dollars.

Out of all of Mariah's songs, which one did they fuck to? Was it touch my body>/i>, makin' it last all night, Honey? It wasn't any of her sexier tracks, it was the bland ballad 'Hero'


ONTD, what song do you have sex to? As an ex spilled about the sex you had?

pilot Finn


These songs can sometimes be the heart or highlight of their respective films and while these are technically ballads, I thought they deserved a list of their own!

Note: Not all these songs are romantic because love songs can also be towards a family member or loved one and they are just as powerful.

10. "Baby Mine"(Dumbo)

Not romantic,but a heartbreaking and lovely love song from a mother to her child. Very sadbut always one of my favorites

Cheryl Cole Is Still Supposedly Pregnant...

Rumors that pop icon Cheryl Tweedy Cole Fernandez-Versini is pregnant with a lil baby Liam started a while ago, but continue, as they've recently been fueled by an interview with Simon Cowell.

For some odd reason Simon was asked about pregnancy rumors in an interview and he smirked and said " I guess that is what happens when you are with someone." He also mentioned how he'd had dinner with Cheryl recently and she's in 'good form'.

He also went on to say she'd be an amazing mom etc etc.

Cheryl has also been quiet on social media and publicly for some time now, with no recent pics of ha and her bae.. Could this mean a new star will be born soon?

What do you think they'll name this new golden child, ONTD?

Amy Schumer opens up about sexual assault

Amy Schumer was on "The Howard Stern Show" and discussed, among other things, the sexual abuse she faced at the hands of former boyfriends (which was mentioned in her book), and wants to let people know that sexual assault comes in all forms.

Thinks it's important to talk about it because it makes her feel less alone in this.

The audio is at the source.

[under a spoiler cut just in case]
She talks about how her boyfriend at the time started having sex with her while she was asleep and that many people doubted her allegations. Mentions how they didn't have sex before, didn't wanna press charges, etc, and also talks about another boyfriend who was physically abusive.

It wasn't the 'perfect rape' as people expected so a lot of them doubted her, and that kind of attitude makes victims not wanna speak up.
