‘Law & Order’ Director Arrested on Child Pornography Charges

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TV director Jason “Jace” Alexander (not to be confused with Jason Alexander of “Seinfeld” fame) was arrested Wednesday in connection with the possession and file-sharing of child pornography.

Westchester County District Attorney Janet Difiore announced the news on Wednesday afternoon. He has been charged with one count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child. He faces a maximum of seven years in state prison.

On July 24 an investigator from the Westchester County Da’s office downloaded child pornography from an IP address in Westchester County. After further investigation, authorities found that the IP address came from Alexander’s home.

A search warrant was subsequently executed on Alexander’s home, where a forensic examination of computers and hard drives revealed digital files of children less than 16 years of age in child pornography.

He posted $10,000 bail and is expected in court on Nov. »

Jesse Pinkman’s Breaking Bad House Is Up for Sale, But You’ll Have to Build Your Own Meth Lab

9 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Wanna own a pricey piece of Breaking Bad memorabilia? Jesse Pinkman's trap house is now on the market: According to a listing, the house that Jesse and Walt temporarily used for their meth lab (and murders) can now be yours for a cool $1.6 million. If you'll recall, this is the same house whose upstairs floor Jesse melted through when he attempted to disintegrate Krazy 8's cousin with acid. It's also where Jesse threw his many, many ragers. Unfortunately, the listing notes that the basement meth lab isn't included. (Bummer.) But if you're willing to move to Albuquerque and deal with the Breaking Bad tourists (hey, at least they won't throw pizza on your roof), make an offer! »

Relativity Puts 'Jane Got A Gun' And More Up For Sale As They Fight Off Bankruptcy

8 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Hollywood accounting is known for defying the rules of logic and mathematics, you can go only so long without making money before things catch up with you, and Ryan Kavanaugh's Relativity is learning that very quickly. The studio's biggest hits in its history have been "Immortals" and "Limitless," both released in 2011, and yet, neither film cracked $85 million domestically. Since then, things have been on a steady downward decline and 2015 was particularly rough. Horror sequel "The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death," Kevin Costner race drama "Black Or White," low budget scare flick "The Lazarus Effect" and something called "Desert Dancer" were all released. None made more than $26 million ("Desert Desert" barely crossed $150,000), and it was only 'Lazarus Effect' that made anything resembling a profit with its paltry $3.3 million budget. However, the vultures have been circling for Relativity and now they need to start bailing »

Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige Join NBC’s The Wiz

10 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As previous NBC live musicals have proved, it's often better to cast a musician who can act than an actor who can sing. And so, EW reports that the network has cast Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige in its upcoming TV version of The Wiz. Latifah will play the titular Wiz, while Blige will play the Wicked Witch of the West. The stars who will ease on down the road remain uncast, which means our hopes that Jussie Smollett will get cast in this project — in any role! — remain undimmed. »

The Craziest Tom Cruise Stunts in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Ranked

16 minutes ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

All hail Tom Cruise and his superhuman ability to never age. And featured in today's episode of Cruisian Anti-Aging Worship, we have Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, a movie that plays out like an homage to the fact that Cruise can still kick major ass—and that's exactly what audiences want to see. The flick picks up after the events of Ghost Protocol, the fourth installment of the Mi series. It's nearly impossible to describe the plot without needing an encyclopedia and endless footnotes—and let's be honest, the plot isn't the biggest draw for these movies anyways—but here's the basic gist. Ethan Hunt (a.k.a. Cruise) is somehow still alive and is searching for The »

Aurora Theater Shooting Trial: James Holmes’ Mother Says ‘Schizophrenia Chose Him’

30 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Arlene Holmes, the mother of convicted Colorado theater shooter James Holmes, testified on Wednesday that she and her husband were unaware that their son was having suicidal and homicidal thoughts, or that he was afflicted with a “serious mental illness,” before his July 20, 2012 rampage in which 12 people were killed and 70 others were injured.

“He has a serious mental illness,” she told the court. “He didn’t ask for that. Schizophrenia chose him. He didn’t choose it, and I still love my son.”

The jury in the trial has rejected the defense’s argument that he was not guilty by reason of insanity. Earlier this month, they found Holmes guilty of 165 counts of first degree murder and attempted murder.

In the sentencing phase, the jurors are weighing whether to impose the death penalty. The defense has been presenting testimony from family members and friends in an effort to spare him capital punishment. »

50 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Reporters are getting increasingly more daring when interviewing stars these days. Cara Delevingne sat through four incredibly awkward minutes Tuesday with Good Day Sacramento anchors to promote her film “Paper Towns.” The model-turned-actress’ sarcastic answers and irritated facial expressions drew criticism from the show’s hosts, who concluded the live shot as soon as they picked up on her negative cues. “We’ll let you go and take a little nap, maybe get a Red Bull,” one of the anchors joked, referring to Delevingne’s previous statement about lacking energy. They continued to poke fun of her cranky state after the satellite interview was disconnected. »

Forget capes and superheroes — the CW is stepping away from comicbook adaptations for a moment and turning to one of America’s most beloved novels for a series on its 2015-16 development slate.

The youth-skewing network is developing what it calls a “hyper-stylized, gritty adaptation” of Louisa May Alcott’s 19th century novel “Little Women,” Variety has confirmed.

This wouldn’t be the first time that CW has offered a stylized look at historical times and stories. “Reign,” its »

While she may still be tight-lipped about her unborn son's name, Jessie James Decker isn't so shy about showing off the baby's adorable nursery. (Lucky for us!) The almost mother-of-two opened up her Nashville, Tenn., home to the design gurus at Joss & Main, collaborating with the online home goods retailer to curate her baby boy's nursery (plus her living room). And if you're wondering what the baby room's theme is, well, it's really a no-brainer—since papa Eric Decker is a New York Jets football player, it only made sense to go with a sporty look for the space.   "My Nashville home is the ideal spot to spend quality time with Eric as we watch Vivianne grow and »

Ryan Kavanaugh Sells Malibu Home Amid Relativity Crisis

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ryan Kavanaugh, founder of the financially plagued Relativity Media, has sold his Malibu estate for $8.75 million.

Kavanaugh bought the home through a trust six years ago for $7 million. The beachfront property, built in 1955, includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a deck and a patio with ocean views. The home is 3,087 square feet large.

On Wednesday, Relativity laid off 75 employees in the face of looming Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The divisions hit hardest were said to be Relativity’s ancillary fashion, education and digital units.

Kavanaugh, producer of such film and TV shows such as Bradley Cooper’s “Limitless” and “Catfish,” has been desperately trying to find new investors or loans to fill a $320 million debt obligation.

According to the L.A. Times, his Malibu estate was up for lease at the end of May at a rate of $65,000 for one month.

The same trust Kavanaugh used to buy the estate controls a second Malibu property in Point Dume, »

Beyoncé in Talks to Join NBC's The Wiz! Find Out Which Oitnb Star Is Also on the Wishlist

1 hour ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Hold the phone!  NBC's production of The Wiz just potentially became more awesome than we could have ever dreamed, because Beyonce has been offered a major role.  Not only that, but it's the best, most perfect role imaginable for Queen Bey: Glinda the Good Witch! When the show debuted on Broadway in 1975, Glinda was played by Grammy-winning jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater, while the legendary and Grammy-winning Lena Horne took on the part in the 1978 movie. With a history like that, Beyonce's 20 Grammy awards (and status as the most nominated woman in Grammy history) would fight right in.  This show was already going to be amazing, with both Mary J. Blige and Queen »
