Yelchin's 2015 Jeep was under recall after Fiat Chrysler and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received numerous complaints about the gear shifter, specifically "rollaway" crashes caused when the driver thought the vehicle was in park but was actually in neutral. »
It’s with the heaviest of hearts that I have to report that Anton Yelchin has passed way at the age of twenty seven. A young actor of incredible talent who got better each time he appeared on screen, he was pronounced dead earlier today after a freak car accident found him pinned to a security gate outside his home. After getting his break on ER in 2000, Yeltchin rose to prominence with roles in Hearts in Atlantis and Along Came a Spider before getting his big break playing Zack Mazursky in 2006’s Alpha Dog. This lead to him taking the lead role in the criminally underrated Charlie Bartlett, which saw him go toe to toe with a Robert Downey Jr. at the start of his comeback, which itself lead to Yelchin breaking into the mainstream with 2009, bringing his charisma and charm to the roles of Chekov in Jj Abrams’s »

Anton Yelchin, the bright young actor best known for his appearances as Pavel Chekov in the recent Star Trek films, was killed today after being hi by his own car n a freak accident. He was just 27 years old.
Yelchin was found by friends at his home in San Fernando Valley after they grew concerned when he failed to show up to meet them as planned. They found him pinned between a mailbox on his security gate and his car, which appeared to have rolled into him down a steep driveway. He was already dead. The police have said that they do not suspect foul play.
Yelchin had been acting since childhood, when he had a role in ER and made a notable appearance alongside Morgan Freeman in Along Came A Spider. He played the young Kyle Reese in Terminator: Salvation, snagged the lead in the 2011 remake. »

When asked to define the role of the producer, Gary Lucchesi employs a short but effective metaphor: “I always think of the parable of the Good Shepherd,” says the Lakeshore Entertainment prez and co-president of the Producers Guild of America. “He knows his sheep, and his sheep know him.”
That certainly speaks to the core of the position, as established by decades of film and television production: the producer is the individual who, as fellow PGA president Lori McCreary notes, “(provides) the path for the production to ensure a certain standard is held — (they) make sure everything’s working creatively and logistically, and the (creative) team is working well.”
But the host of changes wrought upon the entertainment industry in the past decade may have altered the perception of the producer’s role. And with the 27th annual PGA Awards taking place Jan. 23 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, the »
