Ohio State Dummy Prank Scares Football Stars: Watch Now!

28 July 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Who knew the Ohio State Buckeyes were big Ellen DeGeneres fans? The college football team had some fun hilariously scaring teammates with a dummy prank in the hallway of their athletic center recently. In the video, which was shared on YouTube Monday, players walk by what appear to be mannequins dressed in gear and uniforms but are friends lying in wait. They train these guys to deal with surprises on the field—not when you're half-dressed and it's not game time! Several players are startled when the dummies come alive, and Damon Webb's parents even get in on the fun.   The best reaction, by far, is quarterback Cardale Jones. He doesn't just take a »

Ellen DeGeneres inspires young girls through fashion

20 July 2015 12:51 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Ellen DeGeneres shares the ''same values'' as Gap. The 57-year-old chat show host and her lifestyle brand Ed have teamed up with the retailer on a new children's collection named GapKids x Ed and she's revealed she loves working with them because of their principles and standards.

Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video Makes Bid for Digital-Comedy Dominance

16 July 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Alec Baldwin’s latest series isn’t some 22-episode drama or a quirky comedy meant to last five seasons or more. In “Alec Baldwin’s Love Ride” the actor and frequent “Saturday Night Live” host serves as a relationship expert and offers couples advice while holding forth in the back of a New York City cab — all in minutes-long video snippets.

The show wasn’t put together by Warner Bros. or 21st Century Fox. And you won’t find it on a TV network. Other big names are taking part in similar efforts by the producer of Baldwin’s series, a company known as Above Average.

Lorne Michaels, the creative force behind “Saturday Night Live,” isn’t usually spotted hanging out at Above Average’s headquarters on 45th Street in New York City, but his Broadway Video production outfit is the company’s backer. Above Average could give the latenight »

Hollywood Agencies Look for New Ways to Brand Clients as Competition Grows

14 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

How dramatically is the world changing for Hollywood’s largest talent agencies? Three words: Professional Bull Riders.

Wme/Img’s acquisition in April of the Pueblo, Colo.-based sports outfit underscores how talent agencies are searching far and wide beyond the traditional film, TV and music arenas for new profit sources.

The Pbr produces more than 300 bull-riding competitions a year around the world, making it a natural partner for Img’s event-management and promotion operations. It also makes money by selling media rights and branding opportunities to its various events, which complements Img’s sponsorship and media sales divisions. In other words, the bull-busting stars are a perfect fit with the new-model Wme/Img.

Abe Lastfogel, the late, storied leader of William Morris Agency from the 1930s through the ’60s, might have shuddered at the idea of rodeo roughnecks roaming his halls. But Uncle Abe didn’t have to make a living in 21st-century Hollywood. »

Lea Michele Honors Cory Monteith on Anniversary of His Death: We Think of You Always!

13 July 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It’s been two years since the unexpected death of Lea Michele’s on-and-off-screen love interest, Cory Monteith. And today, she marked the occasion with a heartfelt tweet. “Today we remember the laughter and joy you brought into our lives every day,” she posted to her social networking pages, along with a picture of the former “Glee” cast member. “We think of you always and love you so.” Even before his days as “Finn” on the hit Fox show, Monteith had been in and out of rehab numerous times for drug abuse and addiction. On July 13, 2013, the 31-year-old actor was found dead in his Vancouver apartment due to a drug overdose. The writers of “Glee” incorporated Monteith’s death into the show, allowing Lea and the rest of the cast to grieve the actor’s loss both onscreen and in real life. "The Quarterback" aired in October of 2013 as part of Glee’s fifth season. »

True Story: Magic Mike Xxl Star tWitch Taught Me How to Twerk

1 July 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

This week, I stood in the yoga studio in Crunch Fitness's West Hollywood location, waiting for Stephen "tWitch" Boss to return from his Starbucks run. In one hour, he'd lead me and a group of enthusiastic participants in a Magic Mike Xxl-inspired dance class; before the twerking, the body rolling, the hip thrusting, or the ground grinding could begin, though, I had a few things to ask tWitch. Things about twerking. Things about butts. Things about Matt Bomer's butt in particular. Within a few minutes, tWitch returned from his coffee run, and we walked over to the two lone stools that had been set in the vast, dark yoga studio. Pushing his stool aside, tWitch says, "If you don't mind, I'm just going to sit down here and do some stretching." "Not at all," I respond. "I'll stretch with you." I sat down, started my recorder, and started asking questions. »

Rob Reiner on the ‘Long, Long Process’ to Widespread Lgbt Acceptance

30 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the fourth episode we did on “All in the Family,” in the very first season (1971), there was a gay character. Archie was always making fun of a friend of my character, calling him “Sweetie Pie,” and it turns out he wasn’t gay, but this ex-football player whom Archie worshipped was gay. That was a big subject that the show wrestled with. Some people weren’t very comfortable with that. It’s been a long, long process to get to where we are today. I remember when Ellen DeGeneres made her announcement, coming out when she was doing her show. I think that was the biggest show-business statement of all, as popular as she was at that time. It’s almost analogous to Caitlyn Jenner appearing now on the cover of Vanity Fair for the transgender community. It’s a landmark.

Ellen DeGeneres Influenced Gay Rights Views More Than Any Other Celebrity (Study)

30 June 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ellen DeGeneres did more to influence Americans’ attitudes about gay rights than any other celebrity or public figure, a new poll by Variety and branding expert Jeetendr Sehdev found.

The daytime host wasn’t the only person who played a key role in shaping hearts and minds. President Barack Obama, who endorsed same-sex marriage during his 2012 re-election bid after initially opposing it, was the second most cited figure, followed by openly gay “Glee” star Jane Lynch and openly gay comedian Rosie O’Donnell. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the fifth most influential voice on gay rights, the study found. Like Obama, Clinton initially opposed gay marriage before changing her views two years ago.

The results were calculated from a nationwide survey of 2,000 adults between the ages of 18 and 65. Polling was based on a combination of online studies and one-on-one interviews. The study was conducted as part of Variety »

Susan Sarandon on Gay Marriage, Transgender Rights and Her First Lesbian Sex Scene

30 June 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Susan Sarandon, a longtime gay ally, plays a lesbian grappling with her grandchild’s transgender identity in the upcoming Weinstein Co. drama “Three Generations.”

When did you first become an Lgbt ally?

If you’re involved in the arts in any way, shape or form, your whole life is completely integrated with gay artists, and creative people who are gay. I started speaking in public in the early days of the AIDS epidemic when there were huge demonstrations that didn’t even find their way into the New York Times. Having lost a lot of very close friends, who were given the message to die in shame somewhere out of sight, that activated me very quickly.

Did you know it would be controversial to play a lesbian in 1983’s “The Hunger”?

I never went in anticipating the reaction it caused. I thought it was an interesting project. Who wouldn’t »

How ‘Will & Grace’s’ Relatable Vibe Helped Audiences Accept Gay Characters

30 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

During its eight-season run on NBC, “Will & Grace” was nominated for 83 Emmy Awards, nabbing 16 statues, plus seven GLAAD Media Awards. The comedy was honored in the Smithsonian’s Lgbt history collection, and was recognized by Vice President Joe Biden for helping to educate the American public about the gay community. But getting the sitcom on air in 1998 was an achievement in and of itself.

“It wasn’t easy. You got the sense that there was some anxiety about it,” recalls David Kohan, who co-created the series with Max Mutchnick. “I remember one time our agent asked us, ‘Hey, can you make Will straight?’ ”

Kohan says Showtime’s David Nevins, then at NBC, was an early champion of the project, thanks to the characters’ dynamic — not their sexual identity. “If you set out to make a political statement, you’re just making a political statement, and political statements are boring,” Kohan tells Variety. »
