Danny Masterson should probably update his SuckedIn account (I’m assuming that’s Scientology’s LinkedIn) to say former star of The Ranch. Because according to Variety, he’s been fired.
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.
When the Fall of Pervs 2017 started to hit the world of TV news and Ryan Seacrest was accused (sort of) and Charlie Rose went down, I waited and waited for the creepy perv curtain to be lifted off of bald pillar of potent smug Matt Lauer. Well, that day has come… and you probably didn’t read anything beyond “was accused” because your vision was blurred by the tears you let out while laugh crying over me saying that sneaky garden gnome Ryan Seacrest is in the world of TV news.
But anyway, NBC News announced today that after getting a detailed sexual harassment complaint from an employee on Monday night, they have fired the seemingly untouchable don of morning TV. Meanwhile, employees at Good Morning America are making a mental note to keep the receipt for the holiday gifts they bought for George Stephanopoulos and Michael Strahan.
It looks like Brett Ratner might have recently found himself out of a job from all of the accusations that he’s a rapey asshole. The people behind the Wonder Woman movie apparently have booked Brett a one-way ticket on Diana’s invisible jet and sent him far away from the sequel.
Because Netflix’s PR department really got sick of everyone calling them up today to ask what they’re going to do about Kevin Spacey, they announced that House of Cards’ sixth season will also be its final season. The Hollywood Reporter says that the decision to end HoC was made months ago, but I guess there’s no better time to announce the end of a show than the day after its star was accused of creeping on a 14-year-old. Oh, Kevin, don’t lower your head in sadness over Netflix acting like they’re trying to wash their hands of you. Once the creepy smoke clears, they’ll welcome you back with a multi-million dollar deal. Just ask Woody Allen!
There will always be creeps and pervs in this world. But in the world of entertainment, they’ve begun to attempt to make it look like they’re cracking down on such unsavory types. Harvey Weinstein, Roy Price from Amazon. Apparently the perv-sweeping broom has spread all the way to the fashion world.
According to The Daily Telegraph, magazine publisher Condé Nast has decided to wash their hands of Terry Richardson. I hope they got a good deal on soap, because a grimy grease stain like Uncle Terry is going to take a lot of scrubbing.
