"High School Musical" Starts Casting For Digital Series - Meet The Characters Here!

Casting for Disney’s High School Musical digital TV series has begun! The network revealed this morning that casting for High School Musical: The Musical, has started and also announced all the characters for the show, which will debut on the upcoming streaming service. High School Musical: The Musical is described as a “fresh take” on [...] Casting for Disney’s High School Musical digital TV series has begun! The network revealed this morning that casting for High School Musical: The Musical, has started and also announced all the characters for the show, which will debut on the upcoming streaming service. High School Musical: The Musical is described as a “fresh take” on the iconic franchise and will consist of 10 episodes, following a group of students at East High who stage a performance of “High School Musical” for their winter theater production, only to realize that as much drama happens offstage as onstage. Every episode will include a new rendition of a beloved song from the original High School Musical plus a new, original song. Click inside NOW to meet all the characters for the series! RICKY - A snarky sweetheart, a B-minus student, and our star. Ricky’s been dating fellow junior Nini for a year. When she unexpectedly breaks up with Ricky, he launches a bold plan to get Nini back — by auditioning to star opposite her in the school’s production of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL. Ricky’s class-clowning covers a deep fear that he’s not actually great at anything, except coasting by on charm. Constantly attempting get-rich-quick schemes with best friend and fellow skater Big Red. Stays up too late bingeing GoPro stunt videos on YouTube. Voted “Most likely to sleep through his alarm.” NINI - The other star. Formerly relegated to the chorus of her school’s musicals, Nini just got back from summer camp, where she found her voice – and confidence — playing the lead in THE MUSIC MAN. Unfortunately, Nini also found a new boyfriend at camp. Drama. Fiercely loyal to her two moms, she’s stronger than she first appears: an iron butterfly. Never misses AMERICAN IDOL and THE VOICE (only after doing her homework, natch) and takes hour-long showers to sing Ariana Grande’s entire catalogue. Voted “Most likely to have a HAMILTON lyric as her senior quote.” E.J. – Nini’s new love interest, the type of ambitious entrepre-nerd who brings homemade props to auditions. Don’t cross E.J. if you get something he wants — like a starring role, opposite “his” girl Nini. The son of two high-powered corporate attorneys, E.J. is supremely confident but secretly prone to anxiety attacks when anything goes off-plan. A future producer more than an actor, E.J. calls the Steve Jobs biography his “bible” and keeps a copy on his nightstand. Voted “Most likely to report another student for cheating on a test.” ASHLYN - Brash and gutsy, Ashlyn’s mouthy attitude covers “new kid” self-doubt. A slightly woo-woo horoscope reader, she’s finding her place in the school hierarchy. Or trying to. (It helps that her cousin E.J. is a senior.) Worships Sara Bareilles and is an aspiring songwriter on the sly. Can’t wait till she’s old enough to vote, and she’ll march and protest in the meantime. Whether she’s cast in the musical or not, she’s got her eye on student council. Her most-used app is Headspace, for meditation (and because of her crush on the disembodied Buddha voice). Voted “Most likely to read your palm.” BIG RED – Ricky’s lifelong wingman. A skate rat, Big Red is the spiritual cousin of both Bill and Ted: always fuzzy, he’s been sleep-deprived since preschool. Big Red is weirdly devastated by Ricky and Nini’s breakup — his surest role is as their wisecracking third wheel. He has secretly crushed on Nini since middle school, and her breakup with Ricky proves a moral best-friend dilemma. He joins the backstage crew to be “Nini-adjacent.” Wants to start a garage band, but keeps forgetting to learn an instrument. He’s addicted to true crime podcasts and THE WALKING DEAD, and yet he’s afraid of the dark. Voted “Most likely to believe aliens are real, bruh.” GINA - Don’t call her an understudy, call her a “wonderstudy.” A polished pro with an Equity card and the unwavering belief that the drama teacher made a HUGE mistake not casting her as a lead. Gina is an entitled princess, but her ambition pales in comparison with her stage mother’s. Gina worries that she peaked in 6th grade, when she starred in a Canadian tour of ANNIE. Posts Instagram videos of her singing that go viral — and makes Nini seriously start to doubt her own talent. Voted “Most likely to push you down a flight of stairs.” VIKRAM - Captain of the color guard and the student choreographer of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL. Beyoncé is his iPhone lockscreen wallpaper, and he already has his Tony Award for Best Choreography speech written out. Vikram thinks of the drama teacher as a peer — he eats lunch in her office, and has been drinking espresso since 3rd grade. All of this, even though Vikram still sleeps with a stuffed elephant, and is terrified of failure. His most-used app is Starbucks. Voted “Most likely to stage a flash mob on a field trip.” MISS JENN – The school’s new drama teacher, Miss Jenn is high-energy and low-reality. She truly believes musicals can save lives. If only she believed in telling the truth on her résumé. She’s moved back home to Utah after she left New York under mysterious circumstances, packing up in a hurry. Forces student choreographer Vikram to do a Kickstarter for the musical when the school board won’t give her the $50,000 budget she asks for. Suffers serious imposter syndrome and would ultimately do anything for these kids. Her most-used (and most-loathed) app is Tinder......»»

"Transparent" Actress Trace Lysette Accuses Jeffrey Tambor of Sexual Harassment, He Responds

Trace Lysette is speaking out to accuse her Transparent co-star Jeffrey Tambor of sexual harassment on the set of the Emmy-winning Amazon series. The actress, who is transgender, says that when she emerged on set in a revealing costume, Tambor said, “My God, Trace. I want to attack you sexually.” Minutes later while the camera [...] Trace Lysette is speaking out to accuse her Transparent co-star Jeffrey Tambor of sexual harassment on the set of the Emmy-winning Amazon series. The actress, who is transgender, says that when she emerged on set in a revealing costume, Tambor said, “My God, Trace. I want to attack you sexually.” Minutes later while the camera was being set up, she says that Tambor, dressed as his character Maura, approached her. “He came in close, put his bare feet on top of mine so I could not move, leaned his body against me, and began quick, discreet thrust back and forth against my body. I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas,” Lysette told THR. Trace says the moment was discreet and anyone who might have saw it happen probably thought he was giving her a hug. Jeffrey has previously been accused of sexual harassment by his personal assistant Van Barnes, whose accusations in a private Facebook post launched an investigation at Amazon into the claims. Click inside to find out how Jeffrey Tambor responded to the new claims… Read Tambor‘s statement about Trace‘s claims below: “For the past four years, I’ve had the huge privilege — and huge responsibility – of playing Maura Pfefferman, a transgender woman, in a show that I know has had an enormous, positive impact on a community that has been too long dismissed and misunderstood,” Tambor said in a statement to Deadline on Thursday (November 16). “Now I find myself accused of behavior that any civilized person would condemn unreservedly.” “I know I haven’t always been the easiest person to work with. I can be volatile and ill-tempered, and too often I express my opinions harshly and without tact. But I have never been a predator – ever. I am deeply sorry if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being sexually aggressive or if I ever offended or hurt anyone. But the fact is, for all my flaws, I am not a predator and the idea that someone might see me in that way is more distressing than I can express,” he added. Trace Lysette’s Full Statement Last week, it was reported in the media that Van Barnes, who previously worked as Jeffrey Tambor’s assistant while shooting Transparent, had privately spoken out on her social media about her own experiences of abuse. Sadly, I must add my voice to the chorus. Jeffrey has acted inappropriately with me too. Jeffrey has made many sexual advances and comments at me, but one time it got physical. One day on set during season 2 Jeffrey, Alexandra Billings and I were all outfitted in pajamas. I was in a flimsy top and matching short shorts. Upon seeing me in my costume, Jeffrey sexualized me with an over the top comment. Alexandra and I laughed it off because it was so absurd and we thought surely it had to be a bad joke. I shook it off. Then later, in between takes, I stood in a corner on the set as the crew reset for a wide shot. My back was against the wall in a corner as Jeffrey approached me. He came in close, put his bare feet on top of mine so I could not move, leaned his body against me, and began quick, discreet thrusts back and forth against my body. I felt his penis on my hip through his thin pajamas and I pushed him off of me. Again, I laughed it off and rolled my eyes. I had a job to do and I had to do it with Jeffrey, the lead of our show. When they called action, I put that moment in the corner into its own corner of my mind. Compartmentalizing has always been part of my survival tool kit, long before I came to Hollywood. It’s shitty to admit out loud — and I don’t say it to justify what I went through — but given the journey and circumstances of my life, I was used to being treated as a sexual object by men — this one just happened to be famous. Despite multiple uncomfortable experiences with Jeffrey, it has been an incredible, career-solidifying honor to bring life to my character Shea on Amazon’s Transparent. Working on the award-winning series as a low-income trans woman with active roots in New York’s ball culture is a rare opportunity most of my sisters are not given. My hope is that Amazon can find the good in this, and use this as an opportunity, a teachable moment to re-center the other trans characters in this show with the family members instead of just pulling it. Let our brilliant writers continue to craft something that is entertaining and creates social change the way they know how. Don’t let the trans community suffer for the actions of one cis male actor. Transparent has been a guiding light in the industry, by employing more trans people in Hollywood than any other production in history, which made it even more difficult to speak out. As trans-women and survivors we have often felt we never had the power or the voice to speak out on our personal and collective pain. I am proud of my work on Transparent and its “trans-affirmative action” mission, as coined by its creator Jill Soloway. And I call on Amazon to make another bold affirmative move to our communities, remove the problem and let the show go on. It’s vital that the show’s creator, showrunner and its studio re-center the narrative of Transparent on the experiences of the other trans characters and family members audiences have grown to love on the series......»»

Donald Trump Reportedly Using The Justice Department To Go After Affirmative Action!

Looks like the civil rights division of the Justice Department is taking a new stance under the leadership of Donald Trump and his Attorney General (for the moment) Jeff Sessions. Instead of protecting the most oppressed minority groups, they're going to focus on all that discrimination against white people. According to a report in The New York [...] Looks like the civil rights division of the Justice Department is taking a new stance under the leadership of Donald Trump and his Attorney General (for the moment) Jeff Sessions. Instead of protecting the most oppressed minority groups, they're going to focus on all that discrimination against white people. According to a report in The New York Times, an internal document was leaked that reveals the department is trying to find which of its lawyers are up for "investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions." Related: White Supremacists Taking College Campus Recruitment To 'Unprecedented' Levels Under Trump But this apparently isn't to stop schools from discriminating against minority applicants; it's to stop affirmative action from giving an edge to black and Latino students -- because they believe it's discriminating against white applicants. Eesh. ​The Supreme Court has previously ruled that race can be taken into account because of the educational benefits of a diverse student body, so long as there are no racial quotas. But critics say colleges are using that to reject students because they're white; there are still several pending lawsuits against major universities by white students claiming they were discriminated against. The project to take on those cases will reportedly be run out of the front office of the Justice Department rather than the Educational Opportunities Section which usually works on anything related to colleges and universities. In other words, it'll be done by Trump appointees rather than career civil servants who actually know what they're doing and care about civil rights. [Image via CNN.].....»»

In late April, at a scholarship fundraiser called "Battlegroundz," students and invited artists painted murals in an alley behind MAAC Community Charter School to promote urban art. In one portion of the panorama, artist Sasha Andrade painted the President's decapitated head with a spear impaling his mouth. Not surprisingly, the image sparked controversy. Related: Melania & Donald Trump's Relationship Sounds Like A Living Hell… According to a statement from school director Tommy Ramirez obtained by the San Diego Union-Tribune, Andrade has agreed to change the artwork. "We understand that there was a mural painted at the event this past weekend that does not align with our school's philosophy of non-violence... We have been in communication with the artist — who has agreed to modify the artwork — to better align with the school's philosophy." On Friday, the controversial project was covered up with a piece of plywood, as a vehicle parked in front of it. Although school officials said Andrade was willing to alter her work, her May 2 post on Instagram suggested otherwise. They can try to #censor it but here it is guys!!!! 😂🤪😬👊🏻 #urwelcome #ftp #freedomofexpression #arteurbano #selapelaron #share lets make this #viral lol 😂 who wants some stickers??? 😉😁😬🤪 #kusinews #controversialA post shared by Sasha (@mrs.mex) on May 2, 2018 at 6:33pm PDT That same day, she noted that comedian George Lopez liked her post. Last week, the school -- which has around 300 students -- released the following statement on the matter: "Our school has a focus on critical thinking; our students learn their academic curriculum by examining current issues... We expect that this, and other murals, will give cause for conversation among our student population and are ready to help them reflect on it and formulate their own opinions about its message and implications."

Clear Backpacks, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose

Any of you planning to sneak an AK-15 into a school using a backpack are going to be seriously pissed off today, because now another school is adopting a policy requiring students to wear school-issued clear backpacks. In addition to hiring Beetle Bailey as their security guard, the administrators at Stoneman Douglas High School – […] The post Clear Backpacks, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Any of you planning to sneak an AK-15 into a school using a backpack are going to be seriously pissed off today, because now another school is adopting a policy requiring students to wear school-issued clear backpacks. In addition to hiring Beetle Bailey as their security guard, the administrators at Stoneman Douglas High School – the site of Nikolas Cruz’s shooting rampage that left seventeen people dead – are adding insult to injury by requiring that students wear clear backpacks. Students returned on Monday from a relaxing Spring Break of seeing a blood-splattered hallway everytime they close their eyes to find that, after diligently protesting guns and being self-righteous and gender nonconformist and all around very unlikable, their school rewarded their efforts with clear backpacks. To prevent death by semi-automatic machine guns. I was in middle school during the OG school shooting at Columbine in 1999, and I too had to wear a clear backpack to help save the lives of my fellow classmates. Even as moron Appalachian meth lab middle schoolers with limited Internet access we knew that the clear backpacks were a joke, so you can bet that the wokest of woke 2018 high schoolers see the humor in this. They asked for gun control. Their teachers gave them clear backpacks to prohibit the entry of readily-available guns into the school. It’s the kind of “fuck you” that these kids are probably in need of. Here’s the thing. It doesn’t take experience as a Navy SEAL to barge into a building and plow down a bunch of people with a gun. Even the new security checkpoint at Stoneman Douglas can’t stop someone with chutzpah. The only difference in this case is that anyone who gets shot will have to die while wearing an ugly clear backpack. But I guess they were committing crimes. Of fashion! Here are the tweets of high schoolers being awful. It’s like, you don’t want them to die, but…   This backpack is probably worth more than my life #trends #NeverAgain pic.twitter.com/sVAfRbt12R — Carmen Lo // #NEVERAGAIN (@xo_karmin_ox) April 2, 2018 Clear backpacks y’all!

Jennifer Lawrence Talks Dropping Out Of Middle School

The best and only good advice I got from any teacher in school was  “You can be inspired by celebrities, but take their advice and politics with a grain of salt because many of them didn’t graduate high school.” But as of today I know that my teacher was an idiot, because it turns out that middle school is actually the cutoff for one of the most outspoken actresses around, Jennifer Lawrence. Lawrence has previously spoken out about being a middle school dropout, but I don’t know every little tiny thing about Lawrence’s life (although Hollywood is certainly challenging that by deepthroating us with Lawrence news) so it’s new to me. A 2013 article from Vanity Fair stated: Lawrence was fourteen and on a family vacation to New York City when she was spotted on the street by a talent scout who arranged for her to audition for talent agents. She added in the same 2013 interview: I was in New York, just watching street dancing, and this model scout asked if he could take a picture. I had no idea that was creepy. So I was like, ‘Yeah, sure,’ and I gave him my mom’s phone number. So basically – “Hi young teen girl, just wanted to let you know that you are very fuckable.” And now we know how she met Harvey Weinstein. But seriously Lawrence’s mom had to be majorly thirsty to put her young teen in the hands of someone who was eye banging her on the streets of New York City. Or maybe she knew that her daughter was fourteen years old and still in middle school so obviously had a severe learning disability, and getting raped by random photographers was her best shot in life. Now Lawrence is bringing the conversation back around to her education, letting us know on 60 Minutes while pimping Red Sparrow: I dropped out of middle school. I don’t technically have a GED or a diploma. I am self-educated. I wanted to forge my own path. I found what I wanted to do and I didn’t want anything getting in the way of it. Even friends, for many years, were not as important to me as my career. Oh my dear. You don’t have any friends that like you. Definitely be wary of anyone who says that they’re “self-educated.” This could literally mean anything, and in the case of Lawrence, it means that she got an education in cock from an early age and now regurgitates other people’s garbage without the critical thinking skills necessary to fully understand what she’s saying. But then again, as a fourteen-year-old middle schooler, maybe this was always going to be the case.

Farrah Abraham’s Boob Falls Out Of Her Bathing Suit And It’s Surprisingly Hot

Abraham stepped out in a beach CVS bathing suit looking like a very early Jenndashian prototype that escaped from the lab, and decided to really up the ante by having her horrifying tit pop out during a sensual hair flip. The post Farrah Abraham’s Boob Falls Out Of Her Bathing Suit And It’s Surprisingly Hot appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   I kid, I kid. It’s a tit nightmare from tit hell, but hopefully Farrah Abraham will read this headline without checking out the rest of the post and retweet it. Abraham really lost me when she decided to film her daughter petting their dead dog before taking it to the taxidermist for a photo op, and now it would appear that she took whatever mangled thing the taxidermist handed back to her and stapled it to her chest. Abraham stepped out in a beach CVS bathing suit looking like a very early Jenndashian prototype that escaped from the lab, and decided to really up the ante by having her horrifying tit pop out during a sensual hair flip. There’s nothing funny to say after seeing Abraham’s nude body under the bright unforgiving sunlight. Because there’s nothing funny about this. She looks like a monster. Please retweet this Farrah.

Grant Gustin Pops Off On Fans For Body Shaming After The Flash"s New Suit Leaks!

Grant Gustin can't take any more of your body shaming.

The actor took to Instagram on Wednesday to blast fans who criticized his slim physique after seeing a prototype of the new suit he would be wearing as Barry Allen on the upcoming season of The Flash. The image began circulating online this week, showing an outfit that looks thinner than the traditional leather we're used to seeing on The CW superhero and a new mask. Related: Rachel Platten Cried For 30 Minutes After Being Body Shamed But because we're talking about social media, a number of users still complained that the actor was a little too lithe for their liking -- and here for it, Grant was not. The Glee alum went OFF on his body shamers in a lengthy Instagram post, telling them it's no better to "talk shit about a dude's body" -- especially a dude like Grant, who has been told he's been "too thin" his whole life. He wrote: "As far as the body shaming. That's what pisses me off. Not even just for my sake. I've had 20+ years of kids and adults telling me or my parents that I was too thin. But there's a double standard where it's OK to talk shit about a dude's body. I do my best to stay in shape and add as much size as I can throughout these seasons. I'm naturally thin, and my appetite is greatly affected by stress. Stress is something that ebbs and flows for me throughout a season. Thus, gaining weight is a challenge for me." He also shared a more emotional message on his Instagram Story, telling fans he might not stay on social media much longer if the body shaming kept up. Check out his posts (below) -- along with the image that got Flash fans fired up. Read this if you have good enough eyes.A post shared by Grant Gustin (@grantgust) on Aug 8, 2018 at 12:09pm PDT Lol he mad.... but I understand... #waitandsee #theflash @grantgustin pic.twitter.com/D8xFtxzb07 — Akasan (@akasan) August 8, 2018 Insider info ⚡️⚡️ - - CORRECTION: his neck doesn’t show. It’s under his chin that does! I was speechless for a good half hour that i couldn’t type correctly. I was able to see a test photo of the suit and i really liked it. When they reveal that promo pic for the suit reveal, it is gonna feed me for a good 2 months until the show is back. However, One thing i didn’t like with how the new suit looked was how small the emblem was on his chest. But everything else made up for it. Also it’s just a test and i hope they modified that. This suit looks amazing and i can’t wait for everyone to see it!!! ⚡️ - - Art on right by @andypoondesignA post shared by Younis Alzubeiri🙋🏽‍♂️⚡️ (@realworldofflash) on Aug 7, 2018 at 5:01pm PDT Thoughts??
