John took to Twitter on Sunday night (September 3) to slam the rumors and to say that the casting call did not come from him.

Vice President Mike Pence Calls Claims He"s Running For President In 2020 "Laughable & Absurd"!

Mike Pence will NOT be running for president in 2020. The Vice President made this fact abundantly clear after the New York Times suggested he was considering a run for the office. Not only did the Veep drag the report as being "categorically false," but he also hit back by calling the allegations "laughable and absurd."

Nonetheless, Vice President Pence noted on Twitter: My statement regarding the absurd @NYtimes article. pic.twitter.com/htvYSbS2dy — Vice President Pence (@VP) August 6, 2017 Well, there you have it! Although, to be fair, the NYT didn't say out right that Pence was planning to challenge Donald in 2020. Rather they said the VP was "acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago." Still, we have a feeling this report left those working in the Oval Office shaken up. We mean, the Trump administration made sure Kellyanne Conway took shots at the article during her recent appearance on This Week With George Stephanopoulos. After calling the claim "complete fiction," the White House adviser added: "It is absolutely true that the vice president is getting ready for 2020 — for reelection as vice president." Phew. As much as we hate Donald Trump, we're terrified at the idea of Pence becoming Commander-In-Chief. [Image via Dennis Van Tine/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

Casting Call For Stranger Things (AKA Montauk) Seemingly Supports Claims That Duffer Brothers Abducted The Show!

Did Barb just blow Netflix's cover? While the jury's still out on whether the Duffer Brothers ripped off Stranger Things from a short film Montauk, a casting call obtained by TMZ seems to prove the sci-fi hit at least stole the film's title during the development stage. The casting call for the role of "Barbara" reveals the [...] Did Barb just blow Netflix's cover? While the jury's still out on whether the Duffer Brothers ripped off Stranger Things from a short film Montauk, a casting call obtained by TMZ seems to prove the sci-fi hit at least stole the film's title during the development stage. The casting call for the role of "Barbara" reveals the Netflix series was being developed under the name Montauk -- the same title as Charlie Kessler's 2012 found-footage short about top secret government experiments in Long Island. Related: Millie Bobby Brown & Her Costars "Argue All The Time"! According to the suit, Kessler claims he met and pitched his film and related feature film script titled The Montauk Project to Matt and Ross Duffer at a Tribeca Film Festival premiere party in April 2014. The timing of the casting call is enough to raise eyebrows. Though the Duffers didn't strike a deal with Kessler for his project about secret government projects, the paranormal, and a cop haunted by his past, they were clearly casting in August 2015 for a series called Montauk -- a show also about all those things. The casting call states: Role: Barbara 18 to play 16 years old, Barbara is Nancy's gossipy, less put-together, less popular best friend who can sometimes be a 3rd wheel meddling with Steve and Nancy. RECURRING Notes: Hello! You have a self tape request for the Netflix series ‘Montauk' starring Winona Ryder and by the creators of ‘Wayward Pines'. First of all, LOL @ Barb's character description. Second, clearly the Duffers and Netflix weren't shy about jacking Kessler's title. This doesn't prove the ST creators copied Kessler's full script, of course, but it sure doesn't look good for them either. The question is: could the Duffers really have ripped off Kessler more than they already "pulled from" Stephen King and Steven Spielberg? We'll find out! [Image via Netflix.].....»»

Actresses Accuse CSI Casting Veteran Of Manipulating Aspiring Stars Into Undressing

Another day, another sexual misconduct scandal… On Wednesday, veteran casting associate Andy Henry was exposed by The Hollywood Reporter for manipulating actresses into disrobing during private, paid auditioning sessions.

On Wednesday, veteran casting associate Andy Henry was exposed by The Hollywood Reporter for manipulating actresses into disrobing during private, paid auditioning sessions. In fact, this behavior got Henry fired from his CSI casting gig and his own firm in 2008, as it was revealed that he used this strategy on up-and-comers seeking costarring roles on the crime drama. Related: Tom Sizemore Dropped From Horror Movie Project Sadly, some women fell for Andy's "coaching technique," as they felt compelled to please him since he was a key way to land entry-level parts. Man, oh man. To make matters worse, since the firing was never publicly disclosed, Henry went on to work on MAJOR motion pictures -- including Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, The Descendants, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Elysium. Tsk, tsk. Thankfully, five women have made the brave decision to come forward to detail their unsavory experiences with Andy. These women became connected thanks to the #MeToo campaign. Understandably, the actresses feel they were preyed upon. And it seems as though Andy thoroughly planned out his manipulation as the ladies' respective encounters with Henry were practically identical. Per the accusers, Henry used the same scene from a 2006 episode of the procedural, where a character struggles with a rare genetic disorder that causes excess hair growth. On meeting the casting professional at Reel Pros, actress Jenny Kern recalled: "His line was, 'It's a really challenging scene and I can tell you can handle it, but it definitely requires more work than what we do here. Do you have any time to stay afterward to push a little harder with [the material]?' I was really flattered." Andy had Jenny perform the scene a few times before suggesting that, in order to achieve "more vulnerability," she should take her bra off. According to Kern, the industry vet became dissatisfied with the situation and "incrementally asked [her] to take [her] clothes off." Jenny eventually complied so that she could get the meeting over with. After manipulating Jenny into her underwear, Andy began to improvise a scene that was highly inappropriate. She continued: "He started saying things, improvising as this detective character: 'I can see your tits,' 'I can see you shave your pussy.' He did it until I finally cried." He ended the meeting by thanking Jenny for her performance. How awful. Tessa Goss had a similar run-in with Andy while at Culver City's acting center ITA. She added: "He prefaced by saying, as he'd playact frustration, running his hands through his hair, 'This is going to seem super-crazy, but don't think it's super-weird.' That he works with actresses all the time. His thing was that [the performance] would feel more authentic if you can feel your nipples against your clothes. I thought, 'I need to get out of here.' But there's also this sick actor part of me that thought, 'I need to get out of here as friends.'" Tessa chose to leave the meeting, as she was pregnant with her third child and not eager to show her baby bump to a stranger. Goss later emailed ITA about Andy's behavior and later received the following reply: "Dear God! Just tell me that no one asked you to disrobe!!!" SMH. Andy's advances left quite the impact on his victims as many began to doubt their talent following the upsetting invitations. Catherine Black, who rebuffed Henry's request at AIA Actor's Studio, shared: "It really planted a seed in my head, that maybe I wasn't good enough. Of, what did I do wrong? It made me feel ashamed." Through AIA, Andy met another victim, whom he allegedly groped. Mandy June Turpin, who claims Henry touched her shoulders and breasts during their session, relayed: "I thought, 'Thank God, somebody said something.' You're afraid to speak up. You're someone without credits. And he went on to work again in the business anyway." Andy also preyed on an intern at the casting firm where he worked, named Ulrich/Dawson/Kritzer. Reportedly, Henry offered to give aspiring star Jacqueline Mueller private acting advice back in 2008. Using the same CSI scene, the casting expert advised the intern to take off her bra, a request she followed. When Andy told her to unzip her sweater, Mueller realized the situation had become one of misconduct. Related: Sixth Woman Accuses Roy Moore Of Sexual Assault Jacqueline remembered: "Then he asked me to unzip my sweater. If I'd unzipped it, I would've been topless. I felt disgusted and bamboozled." In order to "loosen" her up, Andy then offered Mueller a glass of whiskey. She quipped: "I don't remember him reaching out to the men in the office to 'help' them." Ugh. Andy has since responded to the allegations with the following statement: "Nine years ago, I tried what I thought was a coaching technique, but which I learned very quickly was foolish and foolhardy. It was brought to light almost immediately, and as you were correctly informed, I was terminated from my employment in 2008 as a result. I was then, and remain to this day, profoundly sorry about these incidents. I took responsibility right away for using nudity as a technique to explore the vulnerability portrayed in a scene, without being cognizant of the potential damage to the human being in the room. I was not aware of the allegations of fondling until now, and do not believe or recall that such a thing happened. I never meant to make anyone feel pressured into doing anything, nor did I ever consciously intend to hurt anyone. My job was gone, my standing in the entertainment community was greatly lowered, and my career options were severely curtailed. I lost my marriage and declared bankruptcy as a result. I was punished for my actions, but I have spent the last nine years rebuilding myself into a person who could never do such a thoughtless and careless thing again. I have formally converted to Judaism, I have dedicated my life to the service of God and to trying to make some repair in this world. And I have striven to live and work every day as honorably and as honestly as possible. I am, again, inexpressibly sorry for the pain that these incidents caused." Looks like someone is REALLY trying to downplay this controversy. Is there a way to fast track his ousting??? [Image via YouTube.].....»»

As we reported, the openly gay U.S. Olympian has gone on record to voice his distaste for Vice President Mike Pence given his long record of anti-gay legislation and reported support of gay conversion therapy (which Pence denies). Related: Adam Rippon Used To Only Eat 'Three Pieces Of Bread' A Day Though he stands by his comments, the 28-year-old doesn't want his feud to overshadow the Olympics itself. As reported by CNN, he told reporters at a press conference in Pyeongchang, South Korea on Tuesday: "I don't want my Olympic experience being about Mike Pence." That same day, Donald Trump Jr. caught wind of Rippon's comments and wrote the following nasty tweet: Sorry to burst your bubble Donnie Jr., but Pence HAS publicly talked about Rippon this month! In a social media message written last week, the VP said: .@Adaripp I want you to know we are FOR YOU. Don’t let fake news distract you. I am proud of you and ALL OF OUR GREAT athletes and my only hope for you and all of #TeamUSA is to bring home the gold. Go get ‘em! — Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) February 8, 2018 Sadly, Donald Trump's son isn't the only conservative figure to criticize the athlete! Earlier this month, Bristol Palin wrote a blog post where she subtly slams Rippon for refusing to meet with Pence. She dishes: "The cool thing for athletes to do now, apparently, is to snub any invitations to the White House in order to take a stand against the Donald Trump administration... This is a great effort on behalf of the Vice President to reach out with kindness. In today's crazy political climate, it's nice to be kind — even if we have different political views. I hope one day Adam and the Vice President have a chance to sit down together. In the meantime, I hope Adam — and all of Team USA — do a great job representing our nation well!" However, the figure skater appears to be totally unbothered by the drama! He wrote on Wednesday: With everything going on in the media about me this Valentine’s Day I don’t want people to get distracted and forget how beautiful I am (on the outside) — Adam Rippon (@Adaripp) February 14, 2018 Adam continues to be his fabulous, awesome self!

Disabled Groups Slam Casting of Joaquin Phoenix as Paraplegic

There are a thousand things wrong with this world, and a thousand fixes, half of them maybe make sense. The other half are ludicrous.

There are a thousand things wrong with this world, and a thousand fixes, half of them maybe make sense. The other half are ludicrous. Befriend people who can discern the difference between smart and dumb solutions and you won’t find yourself on the embarrassing end of a protest march or sit-in. Gus Van Sant has a new movie coming out. Which means it’s a great day in acting town for young twink boys. Van Sant chose to put Joaquin Phoenix in the bio pic lead role of controversial cartoonist, John Callahan, a car-crash injured paraplegic bound to a wheelchair. The Ruderman Family Foundation for promoting disability inclusion particularly tore into the filmmaker and producers: “It was a mistake for director Gus Van Sant to cast Joaquin Phoenix in his upcoming biopic about disabled cartoonist John Callahan. The time has come for the entertainment industry to audition and cast actors with disabilities to play leading roles portraying disability. As we enter 2018, American society no longer finds it acceptable for white actors to play black, Asian or Hispanic characters. It is equally unacceptable and offensive for able-bodied actors to be cast inauthentically in the roles of characters with disabilities.” The Foundation claims that the Phoenix casting is both offensive and a missed opportunity to cast a disabled actor. Though they didn’t say which element angered them more. They do make a point. Because casting is no longer about finding the right actor, but hitting the appropriate demographic boxes, why not hit the affirmative action button on casting a disabled person? The art of acting, such that you may suggest that exists, inherently accepts that actors are playing roles, not themselves. For instance, my career peaked in fourth grade when I portrayed a tree on stage. Prior to that, I was a parked car. Acting range aside, the conceit is that theatrical dramatizations are not the same as real life. Van Sant probably doesn’t give a shit what level of disability his lead actor has, he merely wants talent, and perhaps a name big enough to get some production cash. You can’t name a wheelchair bound actor, which makes the latter funding point fairly germane. It is reasonable to accept that a paraplegic actor might bring something to the role of a wheelchair bound guy, but the character in the movie loses use of his legs at 21. What if the wheelchair bound actor didn’t experience anything similar. Is it possible Phoenix could wrap his head around losing use of his legs more so than a guy who has never walked could portray a former ambulatory person. And how would you even film those scenes, at least on a Van Sant film budget? Theoretically, it would be nice if there were casting for people who otherwise had trouble finding gigs. It’s acting, not skyscraper welding. Pretty much anybody with a desire to get attention and a hint of hatred toward their father can emote for a camera. There’s no reason why an Asian guy, a disabled guy, or Hmong woman can’t portray roles as well as the angry #MeToo perfect features yoga set of Brentwood. Though none of those people will be in a Gus Van Sant movie either. Too much underaged nipple.
