Elon Musk Finally Sanctions Kanye West For Tweeting Swastika Inside A Star Of David

Elon Musk, who reinstated Kanye West's banned Twitter account just last month after taking control of the company, last night restricted the rapper again with a 12-hour suspension. Musk was responding to a tweet in which West shared an image of a Nazi swastika inside a Star of David, a religious symbol in Judaism, indicating it would the logo for his proposed 2024 presidential campaign. “Sorry, but you have gone too far. This is not love,” Musk wrote in a text message to Kanye citing the tweet, according to screenshots the rapper posted before the suspension took effect. Kanye responded: “Who made you the judge.” “I tried my best,” Musk wrote in a tweet after Twitter deleted Kanye’s offending tweet and suspended his account. “Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”

Diane Sawyer Interview With 'Love Actually' Star Cut Off By Police

Diane Sawyer‘s recent interview with Love Actually star Thomas Brodie-Sangster was cut short by London police. In a newly released special, Sawyer traveled around to interview the cast members of the holiday film, 20 years after its release. One actor in particular, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, joined Sawyer to talk about his role in the movie that covers nine individual love stories intertwining over the Christmas season. Back in 2003, Brodie-Sangster was 13 years old and played the young character of Sam. Sawyer met Brodie-Sangster at one of the iconic filming locations, a bench along the River Thames, to discuss his memory of making the iconic movie. The interview didn’t go as planned. Just as Brodie-Sangster was describing his most vivid memories from the set of the film, which included grabbing pizza with Liam Neeson at a shop around the corner, Sawyer was stopped by one of her producers. “We have to stop,” the producer off-screen said. “The police said we don’t have the proper permit.” Sawyer laughed just as the producer finished his sentence, saying, “And they’re going to arrest us.” Sawyer said: “Now we run.”

Christine McVie, Keyboardist And Singer For Fleetwood Mac Dead At 79

Christine McVie, the longtime co-lead vocalist, keyboardist, and songwriter for Fleetwood Mac, has died at the age of 79. The band confirmed McVie’s death on social media: “There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie. She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure. She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life. We were so lucky to have a life with her. Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.” In a statement, McVie’s family said she died today, Nov. 30, at a hospital “following a short illness.” The statement continued: “She was in the company of her family.” McVie joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970. She went on to write (and co-write) some of the band’s most memorable songs, including the Rumours classics “Don’t Stop” and “You Make Loving Fun,” as well as “Hold Me,” “Little Lies,” and “Over My Head.” She left the group after their 1998 reunion tour. She returned to Fleetwood Mac in 2014 and was playing with them as recently as 2019.

Kanye West Slams Donald Trump

Kanye West slammed Donald Trump as a known liar after the former prez called the rapper a “deeply troubled man” following their Mar-a-Lago dinner. Kanye was hosted at Trump's Florida estate alongside white nationalist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes last week. After the backlash, Trump tried to distance himself from the meeting, and said he was only “trying to help a seriously troubled man” in West. But Kanye has hit back at Trump on the Timcast IRL podcast with Tim Pool, saying: “I would have never wanted to do anything that hurt Trump. I'm on Trump's side. Trump said things that hurt me. He lied about me, but I mean, he's known for lying. I went into the trenches for Trump … There is no one in my position that wore that hat.”

Samuel L. Jackson Responds To Quentin Tarantino's Marvel Slam

Yesterday on “The View,” Samuel L. Jackson weighed in on Quentin Tarantino's opinion that Marvel actors are "not movie stars." During the interview, Samuel was asked for his take on the debate regarding frequent collaborator Tarantino, who recently said on the "2 Bears, 1 Cave" podcast that movie stars have disappeared due to the "Marvel-ization of Hollywood." "It takes an actor to be those particular characters, and the sign of movie stardom has always been, what, a**es in seats?" Samuel said. "What are we talking about?" Samuel, who plays Marvel character Nick Fury in the MCU and has also starred in several of Tarantino's movies, referenced the late Chadwick Boseman as a definitive "movie star" from the Marvel era. "That's not a big controversy for me to know that apparently these actors are movie stars," he said on The View. "Chadwick Boseman is Black Panther. You can't refute that, and he's a movie star."

Kevin Spacey Books First Movie After Winning $40 Million Sexual Battery Lawsuit

Just weeks after it was revealed Kevin Spacey will face more sexual assault charges in the U.K. and he won a $40 million sexual battery lawsuit in the U.S., he has booked a role in an upcoming British indie thriller, Variety has learned exclusively.

The feature, titled “Control” from Cupsogue Pictures, will see the embattled actor play a voice role, similar to Kiefer Sutherland’s in 2002 film “Phone Booth.”

Written and directed by Gene Fallaize (“Superman Requiem”), “Control” tells the story of a British government minister, Stella Simmons, who has embarked on a torrid affair with the Prime Minister. One night, as Simmons heads home in her self-driving car, she finds the vehicle remotely hijacked by someone who knows her secret and wants revenge. Soon, the car is taken on a rampage through the streets of London with Simmons trapped inside.

Simmons is played by Lauren Metcalfe (“Full Bodied”) while the Prime Minister will be played by Mark Hampton. Spacey plays the disembodied antagonist taking control of Simmons’ car. Shooting is set to take place early next year at Camberwell Studios and on location in London, while Spacey will wrap this week.

Last month Spacey won a $40 million civil trial in New York after a jury found he did not molest former co-star Anthony Rapp and was not liable for battery. The disgraced actor faces a further raft of legal challenges, including in the U.K. where he is set to stand trial next summer after being charged with five counts of sexual assault. He pleaded not guilty to each of the charges. Earlier this month, the U.K.’s Crown Prosecution Service said it was charging the actor with a further seven sexual offenses, all related to one complainant. Spacey has not yet appeared in court to enter a plea.

Despite the ongoing legal battles, writer and director Fallaize said he wrote the script for “Control” with Spacey in mind. Fallaize says he “grew up” watching Spacey as a film fan and said while the controversy surrounding Spacey was “a consideration, I wouldn’t say it was a concern.”

“He’s one of the greatest actors of our generation,” Fallaize told Variety. “His personal life aside — it’s something I can’t comment on and have no knowledge of — it’s an opportunity to work with one of the acting greats.”

Spacey has also been ordered to pay “House of Cards” producer MRC $31 million in damages after the hit Netflix series was canceled following the abuse allegations against him.

“Control” is produced by Adam Southwick (“Cain Hill”) and Emily Hasseldine (“Beneath”) for Cupsogue Pictures in association with CineNorth Studios. Fallaize also executive produces.

Hugh Jackman Says He Turned Down James Bond

Hugh Jackman has claimed he was offered and turned down the role of James Bond before Casino Royale.

The X-Men star says he was offered the role thanks to the popularity of him playing Wolverine but he 'didn’t want to do the same things' so turned it down.

In an interview with Indiewire, Jackman added he 'had a look' at playing Ian Fleming's iconic spy but decided to prioritise Wolverine instead: “I was like, ‘If I’m doing that and Wolverine, I’ll have no time to do anything else.’

"I clearly find it more interesting to play people who colour outside the lines.”

The Greatest Showman star also said that he didn't want to play “the role of the hero action star. It was the meat-and-potatoes of a lot of American films, that archetype.

"It was all various forms of heroic guys in tough situations. I was like, ‘Uh, no. This is a problem.’”

Daniel Craig was of course cast to replace Pierce Brosnan as James Bond for the 2006 release of Casino Royale beating out the likes of Henry Cavill, Sam Worthington and Dougray Scott.

Craig departed the role with 2021's No Time to Die after five movies in the role. A replacement for the Knives Out star has yet been announced but the likes of Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Rege-Jean Page and Tom Hardy have all been rumoured for the role.

Producer Michael Wilson has previously said that will not be casting a younger Bond and will be looking for an actor in their early thirties: “Remember, Bond’s already a veteran. He’s had some experience. He’s a person who has been through the wars, so to speak.

"He’s probably been in the SAS or something. He isn’t some kid out of high school that you can bring in and start off. That’s why it works for a thirty-something.”

Jackman is set to reprise his role of Wolverine in Deadpool 3 alongside Ryan Reynolds.

 

Will Smith Says That He'll 'Completely Understand' If Audiences Decline To Watch 'Emancipation' After Oscar Slap

As the Apple TV+ Oscar hopeful Emancipation makes its way into the awards race, all eyes are on the period drama's controversial star, Will Smith. It's the actor's first major movie role since the 94th Academy Awards in March, where he won the Best Actor statue for King Richard and shocked viewers by slapping Chris Rock after the comedian told a joke that involved his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. In a new interview, Smith made it clear that he wants peoples' eyes focused on the rest of the movie's creative team.

"My deepest concern is my team," the Men in Black star told Fox 5's Kevin McCarthy. "The people on this team have done some of the best work of their entire careers, and my deepest hope is that my actions don't penalize my team."

Premiering in theaters on Dec. 2 with a streaming launch set for Dec. 9, Emancipation is the latest film from Antoine Fuqua, the director of hits like Training Day and The Equalizer. Set during the Civil War, the movie tells the real-life story of a slave named Peter who escaped a brutal existence in the Deep South to join the Union Army. It's the first time that Smith has teamed up with Fuqua, and the actor says that he thinks the filmmaker has outdone himself. "Antoine has done what I think is the greatest work of his entire career," Smith remarks, while also calling out the work of cinematographer, Robert Richardson, and fellow cast members like Ben Foster and Charmaine Bingwa.

Naturally, the actor is well aware that the Oscar-night slap is still reverberating through the industry, and could keep moviegoers from watching Emancipation either in theaters or at home. Asked by McCarthy what he would say to those viewers who aren't necessarily ready to see a Will Smith movie now, Smith indicates that he would "completely understand" that reaction.

"I would absolutely respect that, and allow them their space to not be ready," he says, reiterating his hope that both audiences and Hollywood at large look beyond his presence in the movie to let other peoples' work shine through. "At this point, that's what I'm hoping for," he remarks. "I'm hoping the material, the power of the film, the timeliness of the story — I'm hoping that the good that can be done would open peoples' hearts at a minimum to see and recognize and support the incredible artists in and around this film."

Smith expressed similar sentiments in a roundtable interview with Entertainment Weekly that also featured some of the film's cast. "The only discomfort my heart has around that is that so many people have done spectacular work on this film," he remarks. "I definitely lose a couple winks of sleep every night thinking that I could have potentially penalized my team, but I'm going to do everything I can to make sure that everyone gets seen in the light that they deserve."

It's worth noting that even though the Academy voted to ban Smith from the Oscars for 10 years in the wake of the March telecast — after the actor had already resigned from the organization — he's still eligible to be nominated for Best Actor. If Emancipation ends up making a strong awards showing, it would add additional drama to next year's Oscar ceremony, which will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. (Rock has reportedly said that he was offered the chance to host the 2023 Oscars, but declined the gig. The comedian also has yet to accept the apology that Smith offered in a YouTube video in September.)

Kimmel has already said that he'll bring up the incident, telling Extra: "It's gotta come up in some way. I don't want to make light of it necessarily. Comedians are mad about it ... but, of course, you have to. Just like they read the wrong winner one year when I hosted the Oscars, they had to make mention of it next year. I think yeah, there’ll be something."


Emancipation premieres Dec. 2 in theaters and Dec. 9 on Apple TV+

Alyssa Milano Slammed For Trading In Her Tesla For A Volkswagen

Actress Alyssa Milano was slammed on Twitter, including by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, after saying that she gave back her Tesla and replaced it with a Volkswagen. "I gave back my Tesla," Milano, a prominent supporter of Democrats on Twitter, posted Saturday. "I bought the VW ev. I love it. I’m not sure how advertisers can buy space on Twitter. Publicly traded company’s products being pushed in alignment with hate and white supremacy doesn’t seem to be a winning business model." Twitter responded, many slamming her over the tweet. They pointed out Volkswagen’s ties to the Nazi Party during the early days of its inception. "Volkswagen was literally founded by the Nazi’s and Hitler," conservative political commentators The Hodge Twins posted which earned a crying laughing emoji and a "100" emoji from Tesla CEO Elon Musk who recently purchased Twitter. "Wait till you learn who founded Volkswagen!" Political strategist Pete D’Abrosca posted. "Lulz," the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire tweeted along with references to Volkswagen’s beginnings as a state sponsored automotive company during Hitler’s reign in Germany.

Quentin Tarantino Said Actors Who Star In Comic Book Films Aren't Movie Stars

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino is once again targeting the superhero film market for warping Hollywood beyond recognition. In a new podcast interview with Tom Segura for his podcast 2 Bears, 1 Cave, Tarantino explained why there are no real movie stars today. “I mean that is one of the — and I’m not even putting them down frankly, to tell you the truth. But that is one of the — the legacy of the Marvel-ization of Hollywood movies,” Tarantino began. He continued: “Part of the Marvel-ization of Hollywood is you have all these actors who have become famous playing these characters. But they’re not movie stars. Right? Captain America is the star. Or Thor is the star. I mean, I’m not the first person to say that. I think that’s been said a zillion times, you know, but, you know, but it’s like, you know, it’s these franchise characters that become a star.”

Wrong move, wrong time.” He continued: “The one air freshener from the NBA is the team that beats us in the NBA conference finals; gotta know that could backfire.”

It provokes a conversation which hopefully is productive.”
