Janeane Garofalo Says Edward Norton Cost Her A Role In ‘Fight Club’


in an interview with Yahoo’s “Build Series” Garofalo recounted that she was David Fincher first choice to play Maria Singer in ‘Fight Club’, but Edward Norton refused to read with her because she “didn’t have the chops to do it"

"And I was told that he [Norton] would like Courtney Love to do it, because he was dating her, but Brad Pitt said, 'I'm not going to sign off on that.' So, they agreed on Helena Bonham Carter, who was probably much better than I would have been."

Pitt aplogised to her years later "He very kindly said, 'I'm sorry about what happened with that,'and he had nothing to do with it"

Norton, who lives close to her, still pretends he does't know her when she sees him around

Production has begun on Disney+ original movie "Godmothered" starring Isla Fisher and Jillian Bell.

Set at Christmas time, Godmothered is a comedy about Eleanor, a young, inexperienced fairy godmother-in-training (Bell) who upon hearing that her chosen profession is facing extinction, decides to show the world that people still need fairy godmothers.

Spike Lee to Direct Filmed Version of David Byrne's 'American Utopia'

Spike Lee is set to direct a filmed version of David Byrne's American Utopia concert, currently running on Broadway at the Hudson Theater. Participant Media will co-finance the film, adding it to its list of titles that are meant to engage positive social change, and Lee and Byrne's production companies will produce alongside RadicalMedia. The film is set for release this year.

American Utopia opened in October and is set to run through February 16th. In the performance, Byrne and a large group of musicians and dancers perform songs off of the album American Utopia, as well as several Talking Heads songs, with some of the running themes of the evening being civic engagement and democracy (including registering audience members to vote in the lobby). It's been a hot ticket on Broadway, selling out even through the slower month of January, after running as an international tour for over nine months.

Byrne has been the subject of a concert film before; Jonathan Demme's 1984 film Stop Making Sense featured The Talking Heads and received rave reviews.

Lee is currently in post-production on Da 5 Bloods, and has been named jury president of this year's Cannes Film Festival.


Taylor Swift Accepts Apology From Nikki Glaser for Comments Made in 2015


Taylor Swift is finally standing up for what is right: people being mean to her! In her latest infomercial, Taylor Swift: Miss Americana, Swift features a montage of people saying not-so-nice things about her in the media. One clip shows Nikki Glaser saying: "...she's too good. She's too skinny, it bothers me. All of her model friends..."

Well, Nikki has taken the time to write a full apology to Swift for these comments, likely due to the "death threats" she claims to be receiving from Swift fans, insisting that she isn't the real enemy and is actually a massive Taylor Swift fan herself (the full post is above).

The apology didn't go unnoticed. On the day that the US senate voted to suppress evidence / witnesses in the impeachment trial (including Swift's newly appointed nemesis, Marsha Blackburn), Taylor has decided to speak up about what's important: the apology that she received from Nikki. Swift, likely surrounded by her publicist, 3 label executives, and both her parents, commented back:  "Wow. I appreciate this so much and one of the major themes about the doc is that we have the ability to change our opinions over time, to grow, to learn about ourselves. I'm sorry to hear that you've struggled with some of the same things I've struggled with. Sending a massive hug. 💓"

Swift had no comment on the death threats that her fans were sending on her behalf.

Nikki's comments came from a 2015 US Weekly interview, which I've found and watched. The full, non-clipped comments reveal that though she did say Taylor was "too skinny" she mostly unloads on the fact that at the time Taylor only hung around pretty, skinny, white models and the full quote is as follows: "Blank Space is one of my favorite songs, she's too good. She's too skinny, it bothers me. All of her model friends - you have to have a thigh gap to hang out with her. They screen all her friends and it's just like: come on! Enough with the model friends, they can't be that great."

Next in Fashion | Netflix | Season One

Basically Netflix's version of Project Runway. Bigger budget and a lot of accomplished designers as contestants, with some pretty decent guest judges (Prabal Gurung, Philip Lim, Tommy Hilfger, etc) even though Tan France and Alexa Chung give out some rather questionable fashion advice. Been out for a few days now and I mostly loved it. What do y'all think?

Terry Crews attempts to renew good will with totally genuine - and not at all PR related - apology

While Terry Crews spent the better part of January making a fool of himself there seems to be an about face. The former male celebrity of the year runner-up has recently posted a series of tweets attempting to apologize.

'Why?' you may ask. Well, there's no reason to know what caused this though if I had to guess I'd put money on him hearing Rebecca singing 'I'm every woman' and getting confused. Anyway, feel free to read the attempted damage control (and responses to it) below -

A Moment for Black History Month - John Singleton's Oscar Nominations (ONTD Original)

It's 2020 and a new February is upon us which means Black History Month is here and OP is here to celebrate some moments. This year some themes will be certain history making moments for the culture (such as this one), vintage black celebrities and just like overall black excellence. This post will highlight a moment when director John Singleton, who tragically passed last year, was nominated for two Academy Awards in 1992 and the legacy the film and his passing carry.

The groundbreaking directed was the first African-American and the youngest director ever nominated for Best Director, sorry Damian. Even more spectacualar, he was only 24 years old and his film, Boyz n the Hood was his first ever feature film. The movie which if you haven't seen it, change that now was a story about the different pathways young black men in South Central Los Angeles. The movie was partly inspired by Singleton's life. To get cultured for the culture, check out some interviews Singleton did about his seminal work.

RIP to this OG - he put his foot in this film and his legacy includes boosting up so many black creatives. Note: OP couldn't find any red carpet clips on him at the 1992 Oscars and like a five second clip of him actually there, so it's best to just hear those moments from the man himself and the people with whom he worked.
