So remember how Michael Weatherly was reportedly acting like a creep on the set of his hit series Bull to co-star Eliza Dushku? So much so that she told him and then got fired because of it? And then she got paid almost $10 million in severance? Well since then the show has been still on the air, and still pulling in the ratings (around 10 million viewers a week). So when a CBS executive was asked about how the show was still going after the sexual misconduct came to light, they straight up admitted, “You don’t really care, so why should we?”
Somebody get Chris Pine on the phone and let him know that Harrison Ford says only Harrison Ford gets to be Indiana Jones. Then please ask Chris Pine to make a courtesy call to Chris Pratt and let him know that his services won’t be needed for any future remake, reboot or re-imagining of Indiana Jones, and that Harrison Ford has no idea who he is. Yes, I’ll wait. I’ll wait a lifetime if it means I get to see the crestfallen look on Pratt’s face when he hears the news that he’s Harrison’s “WHO?”. The One And Only full grown Indiana Jones (River Phoenix as young Indy doesn’t count because in that world, Harrison was still the definitive Indiana Jones) appeared on NBC’s Today, whipped out his dick and pissed a perimeter around himself stating unequivocally that he is, and will always be, the only Indiana Jones of record.
A few months after we all found out that Eliza Dushku was dropped from Bull after she complained about Michael Weatherly’s sexually harassing ways, Steven Spielberg, who was an executive producer, decided to walk away from the hit show. First, is Bull a hit show? That’s news. Second, since it’s a hit show, it’s also news that someone is walking away from a money maker. Although, Steven Spielberg walking away from Bull money is like you walking away from a quarter lying on the street.
A week or so after cranky dinosaur Steven Spielberg threw a Hollywood power broker version of a toddler’s tantrum over Netflix movies being in the running for Oscars, he appears to be changing his tune. Steven and Ted Sarandos, the head of Netflix, were seen meeting at a members-only club where they probably talked about how they can kiss and make-up and be friends.
Cinema purist and Carl’s Jr detractor Steven Spielberg isn’t about Netflix being in the Oscar-contending feature films business. (He obviously never saw Bird Box which was goddamn robbed this year.) Along with other members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences and several film studios, he was chagrined over Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma (which Netflix paid for) getting nominated for Best Picture this year. So he’s on a campaign to make sure flicks on streaming services can’t qualify for Oscars. What a grouch.
There’s rich, and then there’s Yoda rich. It’s that time of year again when Forbes pokes the hornet’s nest in Hollywood and drops who has the most zeroes in their checking account. Everyone in the top 10 must be pissed because all of them now have a target on their backs for the next time Lindsay Lohan needs bail money. People may not have liked the latest Star Wars movie, but George Lucas DGAF. That Disney check cleared, and his ass can pave his driveway with cash. The rest of the top 10 is kind of expected with the exception of Kris Jenner’s “self-made” daughter, Kylie Jenner, being a new presence. Barf.
