The Noel Clarke fallout continues to grow in the U.K. and has now dragged in the BBC, with new claims of sexual harassment made against the embattled Brit actor and writer from the set of one of the broadcaster’s flagship shows.

According to The Guardian — which wrote the original exposé last week in which 20 women came forward to accuse Clarke of groping, sexual misconduct and bullying, leading to ITV, Sky and CAA announcing they had cut ties with the actor and BAFTA rescinding a recent award — new sources have alleged that they were “sexual harassed or inappropriately” touched ...

Who Are the Greatest Mouseketeers?

Who Are the Greatest Mouseketeers?
March marked the 65th anniversary of the wrap of the first season of the “Mickey Mouse Club,” and the recent death of one of the original Mouseketeers, Johnny Crawford, reminded fans of the enduring talent that the show, and especially its early 1990s iteration, brought to the entertainment industry. The original “Mickey Mouse Club” launched the career of Annette Funicello, who occupied a beloved niche in audiences’ hearts for six decades, and the 1990s revival produced Oscar nominees and artists who’ve sold tens of millions of albums and redefined pop music and pop culture.

Mythic Quest fans knew the moment Poppy and Ian both became creative directors, there’d be drama. And that’s saying a lot when one considers all the histrionics that swirl around the irreverent characters on Apple TV+’s workplace comedy.

13 Most Controversial ‘SNL’ Hosts and Guests of All Time

13 Most Controversial ‘SNL’ Hosts and Guests of All Time
The news that Elon Musk would be hosting the May 8 episode of “Saturday Night Live” wasn’t exactly met with the warmest of welcomes, by either fans or the cast. The CEO and Technoking of Tesla as well as the Chief Engineer of SpaceX sparked outrage when sharing the announcement last month, prompting cast members Bowen Yang, Andrew Dismukes, and Aidy Bryant to throw barely veiled shade at their upcoming host.

Musk is easily one of the richest people on the planet, so some felt it was a little out of touch to bring aboard someone without much in the way of cultural bonafides. Still, he has plenty of experience on TV, including “Rick and Morty” and “The Big Bang Theory,” and his Twitter activity suggests someone capable (maybe?) of laughing at themselves.

Regardless, the stunt casting decision should throw some fresh (and much-needed) fuel on the NBC sketch comedy series,
