At the rate he’s going with tricking politicians, I wouldn’t be surprised if the finale of Who Is America? includes Sacha Baron Cohen somehow getting Donald Trump to sign the deed to America back over to THE QUEEN. Like they would be so bad.
It didn’t seem like it took all that much for Sacha (disguised as an expert in anti-terrorism maneuvers) to get Georgia Republican state Rep. Jason Spencer to act like a dipshit and yell racial slurs, show the world he thought Asia was one giant country, and drop his panties. That didn’t exactly sit well with the GOP on the homestead, and Jason has resigned from his position. Continue reading
If I had to guess what the past 72 hours have been like for Chris Hardwick, I’d probably picture Chris channeling his inner Comic Book Guy and screaming “Worst weekend EVER!” every time he saw his name on an internet story. On Friday, an essay written for Medium by Chloe Dykstra about a controlling and abusive ex picked up some serious internet traction, and it was obvious the piece was about her ex Chris Hardwick.
It didn’t take long before Chris’ former company Nerdist announced they’ve had nothing to do with him since 2017 and erased him from their masthead. Chris issued a statement denying he was ever such an asshole (while also getting in a few petty digs at Chloe for cheating). Still, more of Chris’ business relations are treating him like a busted dalek and pushing him into the trash.
We’ve been over this before, but let’s go over it again:
- Yes, they made a Lethal Weapon TV show.
- Yes, Clayne is a name that someone gave themselves. Clayne is what Clayne got when he mashed together a family name “Clan” and his Alabama hometown “Clay.”
Clayne played the Mel Gibson role for two seasons of Lethal Weapon, but he’s not going to play it in the third season after stories came out that he’s Mad Mel both in front of and behind the cameras. And apparently, Clayne found out that Fox fired him when we all did.
Mario Testino And Bruce Weber Have Been Dropped By Several Companies After Male Models Accuse Them Of Gross Behavior
It looks like Terry Richardson might have himself some company in the Scorched Earth Fashion Photographers Club. On Saturday, The New York Times published an exposé on fashion photographers Bruce Weber and Mario Testino. Some parts of the fashion industry have quickly kicked them to the curb like a stack of old musty Vogue magazines.
Comedy Central’s The Gorburger Show is a fake talk show starring an ego-driven monster puppet named Gorbuger that’s voiced by T.J. Miller. Although now it’s a former fake talk show. The Hollywood Reporter says that Comedy Central has decided to cancel The Gorburger Show after one season, thus putting the ego-driven monster and the ego-driven monster who voices it out of a job. But Comedy Central says the cancellation has nothing to do with the recent allegations against T.J. Miller, of which there are now more.
Producers pressed the pause button on filming of the Queen biopic last week when its director, Bryan Singer, had to suddenly step away to deal with a “health issue.” I figured that his “health issue” had to do with him getting the panicky shakes over the possibility of him getting exposed by The New York Times. But the story went that Bryan was really getting sick over working. He no-showed a few times and fought with Rami Malek, who plays Freddie Mercury. And now The Hollywood Reporter says that Fox has fired Bryan and is replacing him. Deadline is hearing that production is not going to start up again until next year. So you may have to wait a little longer to see Rami Malek thrust his crotch as Freddie Mercury. You know who to blame.
