Grace Park: I Quit Hawaii Five-0 Because...

After more than a year of radio silence on the matter, Grace Park has opened up about her decision to quit Hawaii Five-0.

Fans of the CBS procedural were shocked back in June 2017 when it was revealed that Park and fellow regular, Daniel Dae Kim were out of the drama after seven seasons.

At the time, there were reports that negotiations broke down with the two stars because they failed to achieve salary parity with co-stars Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan.

However, Park sat down with Entertainment Weekly and said that

“There were a number of factors spanning the show that affected the non-renewal of my contract.”

Grace Park On Hawaii Five-o Departure: “I Chose What Was Best For My Integrity”
Grace Park is finally answering questions on why she and Daniel Dae Kim abruptly left Hawaii Five-o, but the answers are still rather murky.

Park and Kim surprisingly left the show in June 2017 after seven seasons. Reports at the time indicated the dispute was over pay parity with other series cast members. Then a statement was issued that Park wanted to spend more time with her family.

But now, Park – who is talking to the media about her role as ambitious attorney Katherine in ABC’s A Million Little Things – is finally being forced to address the real story. Park told Entertainment Weekly that pay wasn’t the only issue: “There were a number of factors spanning the show that affected the non-renewal of my contract. I’m grateful for the lessons learned, but I chose what was best for my integrity.”

Grace Park on Her ‘Charged’ Exit From ‘Hawaii Five-0': ‘I’m Good Leaving the Boys’ Club’
Former “Hawaii Five-0” star Grace Park, who left the CBS procedural last year amid uproar over the show’s racial pay disparity, is finally speaking out about her exit.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly ahead of her new ABC drama “A Million Little Things,” Park described her choice to leave the long-running CBS cop show as a matter of “integrity,” but did not directly address the fact that she and co-star Daniel Dae Kim were making less than their white co-stars at the time of their departure.

“I’m grateful for the lessons learned, but I chose what was best for my integrity,” the actress said, explaining that there were “a number of factors” that led to her decision to leave.

Marin Mazzie Dies: Broadway Star Of ‘Passion’, ‘Ragtime’ Was 57

Marin Mazzie Dies: Broadway Star Of ‘Passion’, ‘Ragtime’ Was 57
Broadway actress and three-time Tony nominee Marin Mazzie died this morning in New York. She was 57.

Her death was announced by her husband, actor Jason Danieley. Mazzie had been fighting ovarian cancer since her diagnosis three years ago.

Lauded for her unforgettable performances in Ragtime, Kiss Me, Kate and, perhaps most of all, Stephen Sondheim’s 1994 musical Passion, Mazzie was mourned today by Broadway. “This is absolutely devastating,” tweeted Patti Murin of Frozen. “What a bright, shining light she was…”

“The lights of Broadway all shine a little dimmer tonight,” wrote Daniel Dae Kim, her co-star in 2016’s The King and I. “My heart goes out to Jason and all who were lucky enough to call her family or friend.”

“Beautiful, brave and inspiring,” wrote Harvey Fierstein. “A glorious voice and an even better human being…”

Mazzie made her Broadway debut in 1985 in the Huckleberry Finn musical Big River. She

Hellboy confirmed for New York Comic Con, first trailer expected

With next month’s New York Comic Con fast approaching, the official Twitter account for Hellboy has announced that Lionsgate will be bringing the Neil Marshall-directed comic book adaptation to the convention with a panel set to take place on October 6th.

In addition to Marshall, the panel will feature Hellboy himself David Harbour, along with co-stars Sasha Lane, Daniel Dae Kim and Ian McShane and comic book creator Mike Mignola.

The new Hellboy movie is set for release this coming January, and so far the marketing campaign has been limited to just two images of Harbour in full makeup as the title character. With that in mind, it would seem there’s a good chance those in attendance at the Nycc panel will get to see the first trailer, which will hopefully be released online at the same time.

David Harbour discusses the “Shakespearean” story of Hellboy

Before his return as Jim Hopper in the third season of Netflix’s Stranger Things, David Harbour is set to take on the role of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy in the upcoming big screen reboot of the comic book hero, and the actor has been chatting to Empire about the new film and his character’s “Shakespearean” story.

“It’s a classically complicated hero,” states Harbour. “He’s a creature that was meant to bring about the end of the world, and he just sort of wants to be a good guy. He’s got that complexity to him. He’s also a monster who lives among human beings, so he’s in a sense fighting for human beings against his fellow monsters, and yet the humans hate him because they fear him and they think he’s weird looking and everything.”

How ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Hooked A $35M+ #GoldOpen At The Box Office – Update

How ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Hooked A $35M+ #GoldOpen At The Box Office – Update
Updated with Monday Am B.O. figures and analysis This weekend director Jon M. Chu and Warner Bros. took what might have appeared to be a niche genre proposition on paper and turned it into a cultural moment.

Crazy Rich Asians, based on Kevin Kwan’s bestselling novel, earned $26.5M at the domestic weekend box office, and $35.3M over five days (in revised Monday figures), a gross that bests another August female-skewing hit, DreamWorksThe Help which opened to $26M over three, $35M over five and legged out to $169.7M.

In a prepackaged pitch to Warner Bros., with Chu’s vision intact, Color Force producers Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson always saw a universal appeal in Kwan’s book in its story of an earnest, hardworking girl, Rachel (Constance Wu) who has the most sincere intentions of impressing her potential fiance Nick Young’s (Henry Golding) wealthy family, specifically his strict matriarch,

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Star Constance Wu on Her Battle Against Whitewashing: People Think ‘I’m a Warrior, but I Struggle’

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Star Constance Wu on Her Battle Against Whitewashing: People Think ‘I’m a Warrior, but I Struggle’
Constance Wu’s social-media advocacy on behalf of people of color didn’t just help inspire “Crazy Rich Asians” director Jon M. Chu to pursue the project — it also helped land her the lead. In 2016, Wu spoke out against two prominent studio castings: Matt Damon in “The Great Wall” and Scarlett Johansson in “Ghost in the Shell.” “I just realized, ‘What am I contributing to the landscape?’” said Chu in a recent phone interview.

“I was reading all this stuff on Twitter, whitewashed out, all this stuff that Constance was saying and Daniel Dae Kim was saying, and I agreed with them,” he said. “I realized that I was actually part of the problem. Like I was not doing anything — being on the inside of Hollywood — to change things.”

Booking ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” — the first network show about an Asian-American family to garner both multiple seasons and syndication — raised Wu’s profile,

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Star Ken Jeong Gets Emotional at Premiere: ‘It’s a Lot of Feels Right Now’
Warner Bros. rolled out the jade carpet for the Hollywood premiere of “Crazy Rich Asians.”

With the temperature hovering around 95 degrees outside Tcl Chinese Theatres on Tuesday night, everyone seemed to be talking about the weather — while blotting and wiping sweat from their faces.

“Do you like how Warner Bros. managed to create Singapore-style temperatures?” producer Brad Simpson joked.

The cast and crew may have been melting, but they powered through with excitement over the movie, the first studio film featuring Asian-Americans in lead roles in 25 years.

“To be in a film that is representative of what should be, we should be normalizing all of this,” said Henry Golding, who stars in the romantic comedy about a New York University professor (Constance Wu) who accompanies her boyfriend, Nick Young (Golding), to Singapore to meet his uber wealthy family. “We shouldn’t be the only Asian film made in 25 years. That’s ridiculous.

‘Rub & Tug’: Don’t Let Scarlett Johansson Dropping Out Kill Hollywood’s First Trans Studio Film — Opinion

‘Rub & Tug’: Don’t Let Scarlett Johansson Dropping Out Kill Hollywood’s First Trans Studio Film — Opinion
Transgender representation in Hollywood scored a huge victory last week when Scarlett Johansson stepped down from “Rub & Tug,” in which she was set to play a trans man — but it would be just as bad if the project disappeared entirely.

Naysayers are quick to point out there are no trans actors famous enough to carry a movie the way Johansson can, but “Rub & Tug” has a chance to reverse that narrative. The film is now high profile regardless of who is in the role; the casting controversy provided far more free publicity than Johansson’s name. If the film fizzles out, it would support the notion that trans movies can only get made with an A-lister attached. “Rub & Tug” needs to happen now more than ever, to prove trans movies don’t need cis movie stars to sell tickets.
