Elmo Puppeteer Kevin Clash Cleared of Sex Abuse Charges

19 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Kevin Clash, the voice of Sesame Street's Elmo for 28 years, has been cleared of three charges of sexual abuse after an appeals court threw out the cases. Clash, 53, was accused by multiple men of sexually abusing them over 10 years ago when they were minors. Multiple lawsuits were filed, but in July 2013, a New York judge said that the claims were made too late, as they were outside the state's statute of limitations, which provides that a lawsuit has to be filed within six years of the event or three years after a plaintiff turns 21.

Elmo Still Off the Hook: Higher Court Upholds Dismissal of 3 Sex-Abuse Lawsuits Filed Against Kevin Clash

23 April 2014 3:49 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kevin Clash is almost in the clear.  A New York appellate court has upheld the July 2013 dismissal of three sexual-abuse lawsuits filed against the man who puppeted Sesame Street favorite Elmo for almost 30 years before leaving the show in the wake of scandalous accusations. It was determined last summer that the plaintiffs, who filed suit separately but were being represented by the same attorney, had failed to meet the statute of limitations for civil action in their respective cases. And the U.S. Court of Appeals in New York agreed that the case was rightly dismissed because the plaintiffs didn't give any compelling reason as to why they were "unable to discover their injuries »

Elmo Puppeteer Kevin Clash Cleared of Sexual Abuse Charges

The puppeteer who voiced Elmo for decades has been cleared of three sexual abuse charges. In 2012, Kevin Clash was accused of abusing multiple men more than 10 years earlier. The allegations prompted Clash, 53, to resign from Sesame Street. "I have loved every day of my 28 years working for this exceptional organization, he said in a statement at the time. "Personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work Sesame Street is doing and I cannot allow it to go on any longer."

Hollywood Sex Abuse Documentary May Include 'X-Men' Director

18 April 2014 5:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, The Wrap reported that a federal lawsuit has been filed that accuses X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old boy named Michael Egan in 1999. Today, it has been confirmed that Michael Egan is also working with filmmaker Amy Berg (West of Memphis, Deliver Us From Evil) on a new documentary about sexual abuse in Hollywood.

Amy Berg confirmed that she has been working on the project for the past two years, through her Disarming Films production company, but she wouldn't comment any further. The Daily Mail reports that the filmmaker seemed surprised that Michael Egan went public with the lawsuit against Bryan Singer, although it isn't known if Michael Egan has been interviewed on camera, or what his involvement in the documentary may be.

Here's what an unidentified source close to Michael Egan had to say in a statement.

Me want cookie: the idiot's guide to being a fun-loving modern fascist | David Mitchell

12 April 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Cookie Monster has been outed as an emblem of the far right, but why stop there? How about Hawaiian shirts?

If I told you that extreme rightwing activists were using a googly-eyed character with a weird flapping mouth to try and build their support base, you'd probably tell me to stop being rude about Nigel Farage. Or applaud me for being rude about Nigel Farage. But for once I'm not slagging off Ukip's straight-talking bitter drinker. I'm referring to someone who, as far as we know, has never touched beer or cigarettes, which is probably a good thing as he seems to have rather an addictive personality. It's the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street, surely the world's most lovable personification of an eating disorder, whose image has been adopted by a group of German neo-Nazis in an attempt to recruit children.

German neo-Nazis are using Cookie Monster to spread their extremist ideology to kids.

Katy Perry Debuts Her New "Slime Green" Hair—Take a Look!

7 April 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When someone refers to their new hair color as "slime green," you don't exactly expect it to be attractive, but Katy Perry manages to pull it off. The singer showed off the new hue on Instagram, writing, "Slime Green For Spring by my bb's @neeenaboo & @brantmayfield at the @mcmillansalon." Perry opted to keep her bangs black, but dyed the rest of her tresses a shade of green similar to Sesame Street's Oscar the Grouch (but in a good way...you know what we mean). Perry, who is no stranger to rocking some interesting colors on her locks, told E! News recently that she was planning the hair change. "I've wanted to go slime green for a long time," she said at the »

what it means to be a woman who loves movies

31 March 2014 2:34 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

One of my very earliest memories is of me and my friend Paul — I don’t even remember his last name — running around the schoolyard of Ps 119 in the Bronx, the top button of our sweaters fastened around our necks to form awesome capes, playing superheroes. I’m not sure where we had gotten the idea of superheroes from. This would have been in 1974 or 1975, when I was in first or second grade (my family moved after that, and this memory is definitely from that school), so it was before 1978’s Superman reignited Hollywood’s love affair with comic books. There was Wonder Woman and The Six Million Dollar Man on TV, but they didn’t wear capes. Super Grover made his debut on Sesame Street in 1974, so maybe that was our inspiration. Or Saturday morning cartoons, but I don’t recall any specific examples of them.

The Muppets: Ranking Every Movie From Worst To Best

28 March 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Walt Disney Pictures

It’s no secret that Kermit the Frog has worked with more stars than Tom Jones. From Sir Michael Caine to Bob Hope, the Muppets have stood toe-to-toe with the very best the entertainment industry has to offer – simply because they are the best the industry has to offer. They’ve been a constant in the pop culture spectrum, imbuing everything they grace with a certain lovability and a touch of light-hearted class unparalleled in any other cultural institution.

Whether it’s Miss Piggy’s turbulent love affair with Kermit, or the comedic thrashing and chaos that accompanies fan favourite Animal, the Muppets have all the ingredients that allow such a collection of characters to stand the test of time and remain as beloved now as they were when they started out. Their comedy is one laced with innocence, underlined with a heart as big as any. »

Ladies & Gentlemen! It’s The ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Conference Report!

28 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve been a Muppets/Sesame Street fan since I was aware of television, so what better way for me to spend a Tuesday afternoon than to attend the Muppets Most Wanted press conference?! Full of gags from beginning to end, the film’s main stars – Kermit The Frog, Miss Piggy, Constantine and Ricky Gervais – were on overdrive, and here’s just a snippet of what they had to say.

Edith Bowman (Eb): Kermit, I’ve got to say I’m loving seeing you in a kind of James Bond-style leading role in this film.

Kermit (K): Well, was James Bond ever in prison?…I think of myself as kind of getting to do a bit of an action role in this. It’s something I haven’t done before. In order to prepare for that role I watched all of Bruce Willis’ movies, and when that didn »

Creationists Want Time on “Cosmos,” Tim McKay Gets “Revenge” and “Archer” Might ‘Unreboot’

News

Debate! The Good Wife and Scandal both abruptly killed off a major character. Which recent shocking TV death was better? The Daily Beast says Good Wife provided a lesson in what a perfect Omg moment looks like , but Vulture took a  different view and called it a betrayal to the characters.  Vulture’s pro-Scandal argument: The political drama’s big surprise was a moment built on weeks of character choices and one that went on to further define the characters.

“…and they made it look like a carjacking?”

The people behind the Creation Museum think Cosmos is being unfair by not giving time to discuss creationism. I believe that will come after the segment about the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Defending the '12 Worst Muppets Ever'

21 March 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The folks at io9 drew up a list of the 12 worst Muppets. It should disturb and haunt you, but not because the list is correct: It berates quirky and forgotten Muppets when their weirdness often represents more than what meets the eye. Surely there are annoying Muppet qualities, but that's the joy of the Muppets: They are annoying. To condemn their grating qualities is to misunderstand what makes them cool and even defiant. Tina Fey shakes her head in contempt. So without further ado, I'm defending the 12 "Least Wanted" Muppets. I'm already so flustered and squawky that you'd think I was voiced by Frank Oz.  1. Pepe the Prawn Latin stereotypes abounding? Perhaps. But Pepe the Prawn's exasperated, self-conscious behavior is more reminiscent of the wonderful Telly Monster than anyone else. You don't hate Telly, do you? Wow. Maybe you hate Telly. And are you telling me you can resist that frantic, »

Muppets Facts: 19 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About Jim Henson's Creations

21 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's been decades since visionary Jim Henson first created the Muppets, yet today his lovable creations are as popular as ever.

But for as much time as the Muppets have spent in the spotlight, there's still a lot you don't know about Henson's clever creations. From the first national Muppet "star" to the materials that created the Kermit prototype, here are 19 things you probably don't know about The Muppets.

1. Jim Henson created The Muppets in 1955, making them nearly 60 years old!

2. Henson coined the term "Muppet," but it is not a combination of the words "marionette" and "puppet" -- a belief that was once supported by Henson himself. Rather, it has been reported that Henson just liked the sound of the word.

3. A key factor for the Muppets success is that Henson's realization that TV would allow him to put the puppets front and center, while still hiding the puppeteers. With »
