Ryan Murphy casts Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, Matt Bomer for The Boys in the Band


- Jim Parsons (Ryan Murphy's The Normal Heart), Zachary Quinto (Ryan Murphy's AHS), Andrew Rannells (Ryan Murphy's The New Normal, Glee), and Matt Bomer (Ryan Murphy's The Normal Heart, AHS, The New Normal, Glee) will star in a limited 15-week Broadway engagement of the 1968 play.

- Producer Ryan Murphy said in a statement: "The significance of The Boys in the Band cannot be underestimated. In 1968, Mart Crowley made theatrical history by giving voice to gay men onstage, in this uncompromising, blisteringly honest, and wickedly funny play. The play was groundbreaking in its exploration of how gay men treated each other and how they were made to feel about themselves. And while some attitudes have thankfully shifted, it’s important to be reminded of what we have overcome and how much further we still have to go."

The Great Canadian Baking Show - First Episode Ever!






Last night, The Great Canadian Baking Show (a Canadian licensing of The Great British Bake-Off) premiered with its first episode ever!

The judges are pastry chefs Rochelle Adonis (born in Québec and now runs a bakery in Perth, Australia, so that explains her accent) and Bruno Feldeisen (born in France and has worked a bit in Vancouver, so I guess that's the Canadian connection?). Hosts are Dan Levy (Canadian and son of SCTV alumnus and all-around hilarious actor Eugene Levy and creator/star on CBC's Schitt's Creek) and Julia Chan (born in the UK, so that's our British connection, raised in Hong Kong, and lives in Los Angeles, she's acted in a few Canadian TV shows including Saving Hope and Rookie Blue).

So, ONTD, what did you all think? I think the tent is absolutely lovely! It's weird to watch this show without it being so British. The judges need to be more specific in their feedback (I can't count how many times I heard 'Well done!') and the hosts desperately need to up their pun game. (Really? No pun for Battenburg? 'Bakers, batten down your hatches, you've got 30 minutes left!' and that's just off the top of my head.) Hoping the bakers' personalities start coming out more as the show goes, as that's really what makes or breaks Bake-Off.

Another man comes forward about Kevin Spacey

A 48-year old man, friendly with a staff member of New York Magazine, has come forward to discuss his sexual relationship with Kevin Spacey.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, says the relationship began when he was 14 years old and Spacey was 24. Their relationship lasted a few months and ended when Spacey tried to rape him.

The man says he has worked hard to remain safe and have a nice life and does not want to give that up. He also says that he would call Spacey a pedophile and sexual predator to his face if given the chance.

Vulture has been able to verify most of the information given. Spacey denies the allegations.

Star Trek Discovery at Lucca Comics & Game Heroes 2017

Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Shazad Latif and producer Aaron Harberts beamed down to the Italian event to promote Star Trek: Discovery.



Collapse )

Panel highlights:[nothing spoilery]

  • It's Sonequa's first time in Italy and she loves it so much she wants to move there

  • Isaacs says they gave him a 700 page Federation manual to prepare the character but he said, "I'm not reading that." Very Lorca

  • Sonequa enjoyed Enterprise for the Vulcan prescence, truly an angel with something good to say about everything

  • Isaacs compliments Sonequa for maintaining a good atmosphere on set. Says he's been a part of many franchises and seen several actors become very famous overnight, so it's important to have that camraderie to keep people from losing their heads.

  • Harberts says it was important to have a lot of dialogue in Klingon to explore and understand their culture

  • One journo asks if they were inspired by any Shakespearean characters while they were developing their own. Isaacs says absolutely, mentions Henry V, Iago, Richard III and Coriolanus, and says he's always looking for parallels in the scripts. Shazad and Sonequa answers they've studied Shakespeare, and Sonequa says she's played Mercutio!

  • Harberts says they all appreciate the fans and the fandom but it would be impossible to make everyone happy. He's not a huge fan of social media. (lol)

  • When asked about possible spin-offs everybody says it's too soon to think about it, but Harberts brings up the possibilities of Burnham and Lorca prequels (NOGODNO.gif)

Another Kevin Spacey update: 8 HOC employees allege harassment/assault

8 people who are currently or have formerly worked on House of Cards are accusing Kevin Spacey of making the set a toxic environment through sexual harassment and assault.

All 8 are speaking under anonymity, for fears of professional repercussions. They all describe Spacey as having predatory behavior towards young male assistants, which included crude comments and nonconsensual touching.

One of these employees, a production assistant, states that he needed to pick Spacey up and drive him to set. Minutes before they arrived, Spacey put his hand down the assistant's pants. Spacey began touching him again as they arrived in Spacey's trailer. When the assistant told him how uncomfortable he was, Spacey left the set and did not return.

Another crew member stated Spacey's behavior was out in the open for everyone to see, but no one said anything for fear of losing their job, as "who's going to believe crew members?"

Production for House of Cards' final season shut down earlier this week. It is unknown when (or even if) it will continue.

In other Spacey news, an awards season push for his supporting role in Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World has been canned.
