Michael F. Egan, the 31-year old plaintiff who sued Bryan Singer last week for sexual abuse for events that occurred when he was 15, came forward again Monday to file similar charges against three additional men: former president of BBC Worldwide America Garth Ancier, former president of Disney TV David Neuman, and Gary Goddard, a designer who created theme park attractions for Universal Studios.
None of the new defendants have yet responded to the suit.
Egan’s lawyer Jeff Herman presented the claims Monday during a press conference held in Beverly Hills. He was seated alongside Egan and Egan’s mother, »

Oscar-nominated director Amy Berg has spent the last two years working on a scandalous new documentary about sex abuse in Hollywood that includes allegations about Bryan Singer, Variety has confirmed.
Michael Egan, who filed a lawsuit this week alleging Singer raped him as a teenager, has been cooperating with Berg on her documentary.
The Daily Mail first broke the story about Berg’s film.
It’s unclear if Egan had been interviewed on camera for the film. Amy Berg, who runs Disarming Films, received an Oscar nomination for her 2006 documentary “Deliver Us From Evil,” about sex abuse allegations in the Catholic Church.
Egan, now 31, filed a lawsuit on »

As a legal battle ramps up pitting director Bryan Singer against a man accusing him of sexual abuse, both 20th Century Fox and ABC find themselves caught in the crossfire as they attempt to launch new projects from the filmmaker. An appearance Singer was to have made at a comics convention this weekend on behalf of his new film X-Men: Days of Furture Past has already been canceled, and Singer also has dropped out of an MPAA-sponsored conference in Washington, D.C., on May 2 at which Vice President Joe Biden will be the featured speaker.

Beleaguered X-Men director Bryan Singer has dropped out of an upcoming “Creativity Conference” in Washington, a source tells THR. The filmmaker, who is being sued by a 31-year-old man who alleges Singer sexually abused him in the late 1990s, was scheduled to appear along with Vice President Joe Biden at the conference, which is being co-sponsored by the Motion Picture Association of America, Microsoft and ABC News as part of the festivities surrounding the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner.

Jersey Boys sings tough, James Franco’s mature reaction to a bad review, the fight for credit in the marriage equality movement
One major question that kept recurring yesterday in the news about the lawsuit against Bryan Singer was the timing. It turns out the suit was filed now in Hawaii because the state has temporarily suspended the statute of limitations on sex offenses, giving a window.
The Gill Action Group was planning a conference of major donors at the Beverly Hills Hotel May 1-5, but as the iconic hotel is owned by the Sultan of Brunei, who just announced death by stoning for homosexuality, the conference is being moved, and the group is demanding all deposits back. The hotel is of course a favorite celebrity haunt, and I wonder if more things like this will happen.

Today marks one year since the Boston Marathon bombing, and this year, the city is making special efforts to remember those lost in the tragedy. Families and friends of victims participated in a wreath-laying ceremony near the finish-line site on Tuesday, with flowers and handwritten messages lining the street. During the event, Vice President Joe Biden delivered a few remarks, closing with some powerful words: "We will never yield. We will never cower. America will never, ever, ever stand down. We are Boston. We are America. We respond, we endure, we overcome, and we own the finish line. God bless you all, and may God protect our troops." Visitors also gathered at the Boston Public Library to view the memorial exhibition Dear Boston: Messages From the Marathon Memorial, where flags, objects, and handwritten notes for the victims have been collected and put on display.

Baby's got back! Julia Louis-Dreyfus is nude on the cover of the April 24 issue of Rolling Stone, wearing just one thing truly befitting her Veep character: Words from the Constitution inked across her back. "In my defense, 'I was in a drunken stupor,'" the actress, 53, joked on Twitter, adding, "#crackexcuse." Dubbed "The First Lady of Comedy" by Rolling Stone for a career that has spanned from Saturday Night Live in the 1980s through Seinfeld and The New Adventures of Old Christine, the interview with Louis-Dreyfus is as revealing as the cover. "It's unbelievable, because whatever I do, people just assume it's true, »

Oh, so that’s where they keep the Constitution: on Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s naked back.
The Veep star, sans clothes, covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone. In the accompanying interview, the multiple Emmy winner chats with the magazine about how she got from Seinfeld to HBO, how she deals with the industry’s sexism — “I just pay it no nevermind and say, ‘Get out of my way’” — and her meeting with real-life vice president Joe Biden: “I loved that dinner. There was no cynicism, just a very earnest jubilation about being there.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is wearing absolutely nothing but the immortal words of America's founding fathers on the cover of the next issue of Rolling Stone, which hits newsstands this Friday.
Contributing editor Vanessa Grigoriadis scored an equally revealing story from the 53-year-old star of the HBO political satire Veep, who has anchored two other shows since her smash success in Seinfeld – Watching Ellie and The New Adventures of Old Christine – and recently appeared opposite James Gandolfini in his final film, Enough Said. »
Barbara Walters is known for turning her interviews into sob sessions, but as she exits the business she’s known all her life, she’s determined not to do that. When the legendary broadcaster retires next month at age 84 from ABC’s “The View,” following a groundbreaking career that’s featured more than 50 years in front of the television cameras, she’s adamant she won’t shed any tears.
“I’m not going to cry,” Walters says, from her corner office at ABC News in midtown Manhattan. She recalls watching Jay Leno’s misty final appearance on “The Tonight Show” in February. “I think Jay felt that he was pushed out,” Walters says. “I don’t feel like I’m being pushed out. This was my decision.” Walters says she settled on a timeline for her departure three years ago, as rumors about her retirement began to swirl.
It’s been a long goodbye. »

With Veep‘s third season beginning tonight on HBO, we couldn’t help but think about the similarities between fictional vice president, Selina Meyer, and our actual V.P., Joe Biden. They’re both former senators, they both took on vice presidential duties after vying for the highest office in the land, and they both have penchants for fumbling their public statements.
If you’re not convinced that politicians sometimes miss the mark when connecting with the public, watch the clip above to catch the cast of Veep recall their favorite real-life political flubs.
Remember, being the vice president of the world’s greatest nation is a tough job! Anyone would crack under that kind of pressure. However, when we hear Selina and Joe go on the record, we can’t help but pore over their gaffes, hot-mic truth telling, and otherwise cumbersome quotes.
So if you were put to the test, »

We know what you're thinking…how does Joe Biden get his ridiculously sensational skin?! That's precisely what Rachael Ray asked the Vice President of the United States of America during his guest appearance on her daytime talk show. "I have to ask you: You have the most glowing, perfect skin of any person I've ever seen," she told him while giggling. "I really want to know what moisturizer you use. I love moisturizers! My husband is a moisturizer, as well. Would you tell me what moisturizer you use?" And while we're fairly certain it's 90 percent genes (that's our highly scientific hypothesis, anyway), Biden spilled the beans on his skincare »
Hollywood’s role in promoting enrollment in the Affordable Care Act was on display in the final hours before a deadline for coverage this year, as John Legend, Jared Leto and Kerry Washington were among a wave of figures tweeting a link to Healthcare.gov and a top administration official once again defended President Obama’s turn to pop culture to spread the word.
Monday was the last day of open enrollment, with more website problems reported due to a software bug and to a surge in traffic. Nevertheless, a scramble for signups had been expected, and the site reported record volume.
As the enrollment date approached on Oct. 1, the White House sought to tap into pop culture, drawing on Obama’s base of entertainment industry supporters to send out tweets and other types of social media messaging, for YouTube stars to promote signups, and for administration officials to appear »
