Former Faith No More Singer Chuck Mosley Passes Away at 57
Sad news for longtime Faith No More fans. Former singer Chuck Mosley, who had reunited with the band in recent years, has passed away. No firm cause of death is being discussed. Though family members did have an interesting thing to say about his untimely demise. They blame his recent passing on addiction. It isn't known if the singer and songwriter succumbed to a drug overdose or alcohol related issues at this time.

Chuck Mosley had spent the past several years living as a sober person. And though he had been fired from Faith No More in the late 80s, the singer did get back together with the iconic band over the past couple of years, after Fnm launched their first new album in over two decades with Sol Invictus, back in 2015.

Mosley passed away late Friday night. His family released the following statement.

"After a long period of sobriety,

What Were Angelina Jolie and Nicolas Cage Like as Freshmen? See the Photos as Beverly Hills High School Alumni Dish on Their A-List Classmates
From Angelina Jolie to Nicolas Cage, Beverly Hills High School has educated a who’s who of A-list celebrities for generations.

The high school, which turns 90 this year, is even a bit famous in its own right. The memorable pool sequence from It’s a Wonderful Life was filmed in the gym, and it was also the inspiration for the high school in Beverly Hills, 90210.

In celebration of its 90th anniversary, The Hollywood Reporter spoke with a handful of notable past graduates, like Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick and actress Joely Fiser, who dished on what their famous classmates were like before they became stars.

Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #417

He’S Not Running A Loki Campaign

It wasn’t funny the first time, okay?

The recent mini-series Vote Loki had the Asgardian god running for President. The series was a political satire with Loki running on the platform that he would lie to America’s face and they would love it. Here’s what followed.

Nisa Contreras, a reporter for the Daily Bugle, attempted to uncover information to discredit Loki. However, every time that she did – Loki’s followers were brainwashed cult members or Loki orchestrated political unrest in Latveria– her efforts backfired. Information which would have torpedoed any other candidate’s chances didn’t discrediting Loki, it made him more popular. The same joke was in issue 2 and repeated in issue 3.

Fortunately for Vote Loki, political satire doesn’t have to be funny. Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell is political satire and it’s about as funny as a Pauly Shore movie.

Michael Kelly Wants to Play Stephen Miller on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ but Pauly Shore’s Impression Is Hard to Beat — Watch
With three senior White House officials gone in the last few weeks — that’d be Sean Spicer, Reince Priebus, and Anthony Scaramucci, for those of you keeping score at home — the Trump administration took the rare step of letting Stephen Miller in front of the cameras earlier this week.

The senior advisor, who grew up in Santa Monica and used his press briefing as an opportunity to lambast “cosmopolitan elitism” and explain why the Statue of Liberty actually has little to do with America’s tradition of immigration, caught the attention of Michael Kelly, the “House of Cards” star who now wants to play Miller on “Saturday Night Live.”

Nepal Newspaper Accidentally Uses Spider-Man Parody Poster Featuring Trump

  • MovieWeb
Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming debuted in the U.S. and most of its international markets last weekend, although a newspaper in one international territory is coming under fire for using a parody poster to promote the film. A Reddit user noticed that the Nepalese newspaper The Himalayan Times used a Spider-Man: Homecoming parody poster, which featured a now-infamous photo of U.S. President Donald Trump and Saudi King Salman bin Abdulazizin, along with DC superhero Batman and actor Pauly Shore, in a section of the newspaper that features movies which are currently playing. The poster was created by artist Mike Mitchell, which he posted on Twitter back in May.

This embarrassing gaffe was first spotted by a Reddit user named "Q-Q_Reddit," which eventually got the attention of Mike Mitchell, who posted that The Himalayan Times had used his artwork. The electronic version of The Himalayan Times newspaper from that date,

Tamed Aliens, Harmonic Nuns and a Leather Catsuit: Strange Tales from 1992’s Summer of Cinema

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Cai Ross

The summer movie season of 1992 opened under a cloud; a dark cloud from the still-smouldering buildings that had burned to the ground during the La riots in April. Racial tension after the disastrous acquittal of Rodney King’s uniformed attackers had reached an all-time high and Hollywood appealed for calm.

Thus, in a touchingly bold demonstration of selfless generosity, Walter Hill’s unremarkable urban thriller, The Looters, was hastily withdrawn and held back until Christmas, re-christened Trespass (memorably starring two Bills – Paxton and Sadler – and a pair of Ices – T and Cube). Elsewhere, it was business as usual.

The Rodney King affair was briefly alluded to in Lethal Weapon 3, the second-biggest hit of the summer and one of only a handful of ‘sure things’ on the menu. Though there were mutterings about the dominance of sequels in the summer movie season, there were weird things afoot in most of the other returnees. Aside from Lethal Weapon 3 – which was essentially a watered down Lethal Weapon 2 with too much added Joe Pesci – the rest of the sequels veered off into strange tangents, with varying results.

Alien 3, for example strayed dangerously far from the template set down by the first two classics. Bravely, it has to be said, David Fincher tried to create a quasi-religious epic, following Scott’s horror movie and Cameron’s war film. Latterly, Fincher’s frustrations and behind-the-scenes interferences became legendary, but audiences didn’t click with his compromised vision and it became the first in a long line of Alien movies to fall a bit flat.

Another major sequel, Honey, I Blew Up The Baby was in fact the complete opposite of 1989’s Honey, I Shrunk The Kids, culminating in the spectacle of a 99 foot toddler stomping through Las Vegas. It was directed without enthusiasm by Grease director Randal Kleiser, reminding audiences once again why no one remembers who directed Grease.

It wasn’t just sequels that dared to be different. One of the strangest mainstream offerings of the year was Robert Zemeckis’s black comedy, Death Becomes Her, which might have been a delicious satire on America’s vain obsession with cosmetic surgery if only Bruce Willis had stopped shouting at everyone like he was trying to prevent a plane crash.

Back in the ‘90s, much more so than today, comedies were a vital part of the summer success story – an inexpensive sop for the grown-ups while their teenage kids watched things explode in Screen 7. There were high hopes for Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn’s Housesitter, which was only a medium-sized hit, despite the bit where Steve Martin sings ‘Tura Lura Lura’ to his dad, and the other bit when his falls over his couch.

Boomerang was a bigger hit and restored some credibility to Eddie Murphy’s career after the crippling one-two punches of Harlem Nights and Another 48 Hours. It was also responsible for one of the great ironic ‘First Dance At a Wedding’ songs, Boys II Men’s The End of The Road.

Nicolas Cage embarked on a three year long career as a romantic comedy star with the rather wonderful Honeymoon in Vegas, famed for its skydiving Elvis finale. Tom Hanks and his Big director Penny Marshall reteamed to great success with wartime baseball comedy A League of Their Own, which also saw Geena Davis giving a star performance and Madonna giving a bearable one. “There’s no crying in baseball!!!” was probably the most quoted line of the summer.

As with City Slickers in 1991, comedy provided the biggest sleeper hit of the summer: Sister Act, with Whoopi Goldberg excelling as a murder witness hiding out in a convent. As with City Slickers, an unwise sequel was hastily made and hastily forgotten. The original though, was the sixth biggest film of the year and is still going strong as a west-end show to this day.

It wasn’t just the many and varied comic tastes of adults that were appeased; semi-literate young people were also provided for by Encino Man (or California Man as we knew it, since we don’t know where Encino is. It’s in California). Noted for Brendan Fraser’s first stab at the big time, this grungy caveman caper will be of interest to young contemporary archeologists keen to investigate who or what Pauly Shore was.

Teenagers were also palmed off with a silly-sounding comedy called Buffy The Vampire Slayer, written by first-time screenwriter Joss Whedon. Starring Kristy Swanson as the eponymous heroine, but marketed as a vehicle for Beverly Hills 90210 heart-throb Luke Perry, the producers had hoped for a chunk of the Bill & Ted audience that Encino Man hadn’t swallowed up. Sadly, they had to make do with a long-running spin-off television show regularly cited as one of the greatest ever made. Gnarly.

The stalking killer thriller phenomenon that started with The Silence of The Lambs and Cape Fear echoed into 1992 with solid hits like Unlawful Entry and Single White Female. Even Patriot Games – a sort-of sequel to The Hunt For Red October with Harrison Ford rebooting Alec Baldwin’s Jack Ryan – for all its CIA espionage and partial understanding of “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland, was basically a slasher movie, with Sean Bean doing to Harrison Ford what Robert De Niro had done to Nick Nolte the year before. (Sean Bean dies, obviously).

Crimes against the Emerald Isle weren’t restricted to the gratuitous amounts of Clannad in Patriot Games. Tom Cruise’s Irish accent in Ron Howard’s Far and Away was the benchmark for all bad Irish accents until Brad Pitt graciously took the relay baton in The Devil’s Own. The film, shot in glorious 70mm was the biggest risk of the summer and proved to be the dampest squib, considering the star power of Cruise and (then-wife) Nicole Kidman. Despite looking ravishing, the script had all the depth of a bottle-cap. It desperately wanted to be a timeless classic in the David Lean tradition but held up against Unforgiven, which was released in August, Far & Away was shown up as the glorified Cbbc TV special it was.

Unforgiven came out of nowhere. Clint Eastwood’s previous movie, The Rookie, was somehow even worse than 1989’s Pink Cadillac. However, he’d been sitting on David Webb Peoples’ script for years until he was finally old enough to play William Munny. An extraordinary, mature and masterful critique of Western mythology, Unforgiven was hailed as Eastwood’s best work from the get-go, took the summer’s number five spot and would later win a handful of Oscars, including Pest Picture.

So who was the box office champion of Summer ’92? Well, that question was never in any doubt. Tim Burton’s Batman was the cultural phenomenon of 1989, redefining the parameters of box office limitations and merchandise licensing in a way not seen since Star Wars. Speculation as to who Batman would fight next and who would play him/her began immediately. Dustin Hoffman was touted to play The Penguin and Annette Bening was actually cast as Catwoman, before pregnancy forced her to drop out.

On the 19th of June, all was revealed when Batman Returns opened to a spectacular $45m weekend, $5m more than the original. Michael Keaton returned as The Caped Crusader (having split up with the creditably tight-lipped Vicki Vale), while not one but three villains put up their dukes. Danny DeVito played the Penguin as a deformed, subterranean leader of a gang of circus act drop-outs. Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman (perhaps her signature role) was transformed from a clumsy secretary into a vengeful whip-wielding dominatrix. Christopher Walken borrowed ‘DocEmmett Brown’s hair to play new villain, Max Shreck.

Despite the enormous opening weekend, things took a downward turn almost immediately. Audiences expecting more of the same were treated to a dark, nose-bitingly violent combination of German Expressionism, kinky S&M and oversized rubber ducks. The box office the following week dropped by 40%, and there was further controversy when McDonalds had to deal with the ire of horrified parents across America, ‘tricked’ by their Batman Returns Happy Meals into taking their kids to watch Burton’s deranged fairy tale, pussy jokes et al.

The backlash (against what is now considered a unique high-water mark in the superhero genre), meant that Batman Returns wound up making $100m less than its predecessor and it placed third for the year, behind Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, a film so determined to give its audience a familiar experience that it simply changed the first film’s screen directions from Int. Kevin’S House – Night to Ext. New York – Night and reshot the entire script. (The box office crown for the year was taken eventually by Disney’s Aladdin.)

Warner Bros. took evasive action, hiring Joel Schumacher to sweeten the mix, which would help to restore Batman’s fortunes in 1995, before everything, literally absolutely everything went wrong in 1997 and the world had to wait for Christopher Nolan to finish attending Ucl, become a director and save the Dark Knight from the resultant ignominy.

Hollywood was given a crash course in the perils of straying too far from a winning formula in the summer of ’92. Sadly, for a while at least, it learned its lesson.

Deadpool Actor T.J. Miller Promises More Weasel In The Sequel

20th Century Fox’s Deadpool 2 is already jam-packed with characters, so one might expect some of the returning faces to take a backseat to heavy-hitters such as Cable and Domino, who will make their big screen debut in the movie. However, it sounds like at least one of the Merc With a Mouth’s closest pals will actually have a bit more to do this time around.

While doing press for his latest film, The Emoji Movie, T.J. Miller revealed to MovieWeb that Weasel will be bringing a lot more to the table for the follow-up to the mega-popular X-Men spinoff:

Marvel will cut off my hand and tongue if I tell you. But…let me just tell you that the second installment will be even more weaselicious. Let me just put it that way, to quote Pauly Shore. I’m very excited about it. That starts in August and September.

Melissa Joan Hart Takes the E!Q in 42, Reveals Just How Interesting Her Taste in Guys Was in the 1990s

Melissa Joan Hart Takes the E!Q in 42, Reveals Just How Interesting Her Taste in Guys Was in the 1990s
  Melissa Joan Hart recently revealed that she had a brief fling with Ryan Reynolds back in her Sabrina the Teenage Witch days and was quite "smitten" with him, but ultimately put an end to it. Apparently he was no Pauly Shore! Well, she actually had to end it with Ryan because she had a boyfriend at the time, but in the mid-1990s Hart also wouldn't have been too far removed from crushing on Shore, whom she recently named as her O.G. celeb crush while taking the E!Q in 42. She's since abandoned the Weasel for the likes of Channing Tatum and Ryan Gosling (and her husband of 13 years, Mark Wilkerson, of course), but...hear that, Melissa's mom?...

‘Sandy Wexler’ Review: Adam Sandler’s Newest Netflix Comedy Helps Explain Why He Keeps Making So Many Bad Movies
The “Lawrence of Arabia” of half-assed Adam Sandler comedies, “Sandy Wexler” is an epic period piece that spans 10 years and 131 minutes of mildly amusing mediocrity before climaxing with a Rob Schneider cameo where he plays a Middle Eastern man in full brownface — it’s awful, and yet it’s almost objectively Sandler’s best movie since “Funny People.”

Of course, quality has never been a very useful metric for measuring Sandler’s work, and that’s especially true now that we’re knee-deep in an eight-picture Netflix deal which guarantees that, for the foreseeable future, we can expect new Sandler films to arrive with all the predictably of seasonal allergies. Once upon a time, he was a cottage industry — now, he’s an assembly line.

But if “Sandy Wexler” is only the slightest bit funnier than “The Do-Over” or “The Ridiculous Six,” the third of Sandler’s streaming offerings is

Coming Distractions: No one really has anything good to say about Sandy Wexler in new trailer

  • The AV Club
In what might turn out to be a prescient bit, the first full trailer for Sandy Wexler opens with famous comedians like Chris Rock and Conan O’Brien mocking the titular character, a talent agent played by Adam Sandler. No one—not Pauly Shore, Dana Carvey, or Sandler regular David Spade—really has anything good to say about the bespectacled guy who’s been relegated to the periphery of success. But it’s cool, because Sandy Wexler allows Sandler to travel back to the ’90s, obviously one of his favorite decades, for a story about a middling agent who seems oddly condescending of the movies he watches. But he’s immediately impressed by Jennifer Hudson’s undiscovered singer, so he’s going to try to make her a star. If only we all had such a polo-wearing fairy godfather.

Sandy Wexler hits your Netflix queue on April 14.

Comedy Central, MTV Chief Doug Herzog Exits Viacom

Longtime Viacom executive Doug Herzog is exiting the company. Herzog had served as head of several of the company’s top cable channels, including Comedy Central and MTV.

Herzog’s departure comes one week after Bob Bakish was named full CEO of the company, following a stint as interim head. It also follows a decision by Viacom parent National Amusements, the holding company of mogul Sumner Redstone and his family, to discontinue talks of merger between Viacom and CBS Corp. The Redstones hold a controlling stake in both companies through National Amusements.

Herzog began his television career in the 1980s and was one of the first programming executives at MTV, joining the music channel in 1984. Later, as head of Comedy Central beginning in 1995, he launched “The Daily Show” and “South Park.” In one of his last acts before leaving the cable channel to become president of Fox Broadcasting, he recruited Jon Stewart to take over as host
