Caitlyn Jenner releasing memoir in spring 2017


From Amazon:
The book will cover Caitlyn Jenner's childhood as Bruce Jenner and rise to fame as a gold-medal-winning Olympic decathlete; her marriages and her relationships with her children; her transition; and her experience as the world's most famous transgender woman.


The book is available for pre-order with a list price of $30 which seems sort of high for something that will probably end up being 200 pages in a larger print.

Kelly Reichardt to adapt 'Undermajordomo Minor'


The novel is about an 18 year old boy named Lucy Minor who becomes the assistant to the majordomo of a castle belonging to a mysterious unseen baron.

This sounds nothing like a Reichardt film and yet I think she'll be perfect for it.

Obviously hoping there is a role for Michelle Williams here.

andrew garfield and amy adams discuss comic book characters and the hollywood machinery



+ Andrew Garfield and Spider-Man: “There’s something about being that young in that kind of machinery which I think is really dangerous,” Garfield said of his time on the two “The Amazing Spider-Man” films. “I was still young enough to struggle with the value system, I suppose, of corporate America really, it’s a corporate enterprise mostly. I found that really, really tricky. I signed up to serve the story, and to serve this incredible character that I’ve been dressing as since I was three, and then it gets compromised and it breaks your heart. I got heartbroken a little bit to a certain degree.”

+ Amy Adams and Lois Lane:That’s the tricky thing with Lois, that I find is, I love playing her, I love everyone I work with, but sometimes it’s tricky because I feel she’s in service of the story instead of the story serving the character. That sometimes can be tricky when you show up and you really wanna retain a character and you have to serve the story….in a perfect universe they all work together.”

Highlights from Leah Remini's Reddit AMA on Scientology



She answered many questions so I organized them by subject.

On being a Scientologist in Hollywood:

Why do you think there are so many people in the entertainment industry in the religion?

If you really look at the numbers at the entertainment industry, in comparison to the small number of scientologists that are celebrities, the number wouldn't even register. I think Scientology has done an amazing job convincing people that there is a great number of celebrities in the "Church."
Collapse )

On Scientology in general:

How are they able to recruit intelligent people into what appears to be an obvious scam and cult?

Most Scientologists are 2nd or 3rd generation, they were born and raised into an ideology and have been surrounded and isolated. It is all they know. They are victims. Most of the original Scientologists are all out and have spoken out. Unfortunately, their children were indoctrinated by them.... are still loyal, faithful and have cut off communication due to the policy of disconnection.
Collapse )

On religion in general:

What is your overall opinion on organized Religion now? Did your view on say Christianity change?

Yes my view of religion changed in that I am no longer a bigot against people's religious beliefs when it doesn't harm other people, promote killing people for their beliefs... like extremism. But if religion brings you comfort, hope, and a sense of community, I say "whatever works for you."
Collapse )

Her experience during Scientology:

How much did you pay to the church throughout your time there?

Millions.
Collapse )

Her experience after leaving:

Do you personally feel like you're being watched/tracked/etc by the church for doing everything your doing?

I am. I'm okay with it because I knew what I was getting into and I knew the policies of the "church" and what would happen by my speaking out against it.

2016 takes another victim, 173538th edition: Kate Bush is a fan of British PM Theresa May


- when asked about "the fear of women's power" during an interview for Canadian magazine Macleans, KB said:

"We have a female prime minister here in the UK. I actually really like her and think she’s wonderful. I think it’s the best thing that’s happened to us in a long time. She’s a very intelligent woman but I don’t see much to fear. I will say it is great to have a woman in charge of the country. She’s very sensible and I think that’s a good thing at this point in time."

- Theresa May, Britain's Tory PM, is particularly well-known for her anti-immigration stance
- was behind a campaign demanding illegal immigrants to "go home or face arrest", denounced the European Human Rights Act, favors a hard Brexit & covered up abuse of female asylum seekers at Yarl Wood's detention center, to name just a few examples of what her policies entail

AAFCA declares 2016 the best year for blacks in film. Ever.


The African American Film Critics Association has declared 2016 to be the absolute best year for blacks in cinema history, citing the likes of Central Intelligence, 13th, and Moonlight for the exceptional year. The groups founder Shawn Edwards is confident all four acting catgories at the Oscars will include a black actor with possibly four black-themed films nominated for Best Picture.

Even with the success of this year, co-founder and current president Gil Robertson wonders whether studios will keep delivering what audiences have wanted, while also expressing desire to see other underrepresented communities see the same success.

George RR Martin is still nowhere close to finishing The Winds of Winter

101

Yesterday, GRRM updated fans on his progress of The Winds of Winter to say:

"This is my last scheduled event for 2016. My appearance schedule for 2017 is very limited, and will remain so until WINDS is completed. So if you want to meet me or get a book signed, this will be the last chance for a good few months".

This could be reassuring if it weren't for the fact that he's been saying and doing the exact same things for the past 2 years. He is also notorious for blowing through deadlines. He originally thought that he would be done with TWOW by the end of 2015 and then that he would be done before Season 6 aired.

Oh, and he clarified to fans that "a few months" was in no means an estimate of when he might be done with the books. Just in case you know you still had 1% hope.

Al Pacino was nearly fired from 'The Godfather'; the rest is history




Paramount had wanted Ryan O'Neal or Robert Redford to play Michael in "The Godfather," America's great epic about violence and family.

Writer and director Francis Ford Coppola believed. He had always envisioned Pacino, already an acclaimed New York stage actor, as Michael.

"His intelligence is what I noted first. He knows how to use his gifts," says Coppola. "He uses what he has, this striking magnetic quality, this smoldering ambiance."
