‘Smallville’ Star Allison Mack Accused of Recruiting for NXIVM, Group Accused of Sex Trafficking and Branding Women

‘Smallville’ Star Allison Mack Accused of Recruiting for NXIVM, Group Accused of Sex Trafficking and Branding Women
Actress Allison Mack, known for her work on the superhero TV series “Smallville,” was arrested Friday and accused of recruiting women into a purported self-help organization, NXIVM, in which they were required to work and have sex with the group’s leader, Keith Raniere, prosecutors said.

U.S. attorney Richard P. Donoghue said in a statement Friday that Mack recruited women for Raniere, and that the women were “exploited, both sexually and for their labor.” He said Mack, who was arrested in Brooklyn, New York, is accused of “directly or implicitly” requiring women “to engage in sexual activity with Raniere. In exchange for this, Mack received financial and other benefits from Raniere.”

Raniere was arrested in Mexico in March. He traveled there after The New York Times published a report in October about the group branding women. Mack’s involvement with the group has long been a subject of speculation: She can be seen in a series of conversations posted to YouTube last year, smilingly interviewing Raniere about his teachings.

His charges in March involve sex trafficking and conspiring to force labor. According to Donoghue, Raniere, known within the group as “The Vanguard,” created “a secret society of women whom he had sex with and branded with his initials, coercing them with the threat of releasing their highly personal information and taking their assets.”

‘Grey’s Anatomy': Geena Davis Will Reprise Her Role As Dr Nicole Herman
Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis will reprise her role as Dr. Nicole Herman in the penultimate episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 14, TheWrap has learned.

We last saw Dr. Herman in Season 11, and she and Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) had a strained but special mentor-mentee relationship. Knowing she had a brain tumor, Herman wanted to impart as much knowledge about pediatrics and fetal surgery to Arizona as she possibly could. She ended up getting brain surgery, but eventually went blind after complications.

According to the episode’s logline, Davis will return as Dr. Herman to present Arizona with an exciting opportunity — could this be how Arizona will be written off the show? It wouldn’t be the first time a character left Grey Sloan Memorial for another career opportunity — we’re looking at you, Cristina Yang.

It was announced in March that Capshaw and co-star Sarah Drew, who plays Dr. April Kepner, will not be returning to the medical drama after this season concludes.

Capshaw and Drew filmed their final scenes on Thursday, creator Shonda Rhimes said on Instagram.

“I need to devote a whole day just to celebrate Jessica and just to celebrate Sarah,” Rhimes said in her caption, promising she had “more to say” about the actress’ “magic.”

The penultimate episode airs on ABC on May 10. “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 14 will conclude on Thursday, May 17.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Nails Rap from ‘Moana’ on The Graham Norton Show

You can easily imagine that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has had to nail his rap from Moana a few times for the children before doing it on the Graham Norton Show. Given that he’s probably approached by children everywhere he goes it’s easy to assume that he knows the whole rap front to back and so on at this point. The best part about this however is that he’s so cool about it. He obviously doesn’t want to perform every single second of the day and might even get a little tired from time to time of the song.

A Beginner’s Guide to Art House Cinema

A beginner’s guide to getting into art house cinema would include emptying your mind of any and all preconceived notions of what a film is supposed to be. Art House films tend to be far more cerebral and somewhat less entertaining than the more mainstream films that are meant to pander to the masses. Art House Cinema is a bit hard to understand unless you keep your mind open and the idea that things are not as they seem firm but still pliable enough to accept that the director will be trying to show what they consider pertinent to the

Director Jon Krasinski Explains How Farts and Coughs Work in “A Quiet Place”

The title of the project is a literal exaggeration of the piece. A Quiet Place is meant to be quiet. If you don’t know yet, the basic plot of the story involves a family that must survive in silence, as they hide from a creature that hunts primarily by sound. It’s a project that many people might not consider associating with the movie’s star/director Jon Krasinski. Krasinski also stars in the film alongside his real-life spouse, Emily Blunt After learning more about the film, we get the association to Krasinski because it’s actually a brilliant and creative thought.

Gotham Review: “Our Deaths and Beyond”

I’m not sure if my frustration with this week’s Gotham was personal, or justified based on the story. There’s only so much compelling story that can be told about Nygma fighting against his inner Riddler. The Ra’s Al Ghul story is extremely tired, and the most compelling story they’ve told this season was nowhere to be found (Joker). I’m starting to believe that Gotham is trying to push things into the show it wants to be, rather than embracing the show it is. It’s really to easy to see that Gotham is trying to force things here. They brought back Ra’s Al Ghul from the dead,
