EXCLUSIVE! Saved By The Bell"s Dennis Haskins Dishes About Reprising His Beloved Principal Role For The Dirty Heads" Vacation Vid!

Saved By The Bell's Dennis Haskins has no plans to distance himself from his beloved Mr. Belding character. The industry vet made this fact abundantly clear as he brought the fictional principal to life once more for the Dirty Heads' Vacation music video. Not to mention, Haskins has even thought about what role Belding would play [...] Saved By The Bell's Dennis Haskins has no plans to distance himself from his beloved Mr. Belding character. The industry vet made this fact abundantly clear as he brought the fictional principal to life once more for the Dirty Heads' Vacation music video. Not to mention, Haskins has even thought about what role Belding would play in Kelly, Zack, Lisa, Screech, A.C., and Jessie's lives today. Related: Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi Discusses Her One Month Marriage The 66-year-old dished EXCLUSIVELY to us: "Mr. Belding would still be involved supporting kids in some way. And the students demonstrated equal but unique talents that would lead them to whatever they chose to pursue and be successful. I know that's a little PC but, coming from their roles, I believe it's true." And for all you Saved By The Bell fans out there, you'll be happy to hear that Dennis is "casually" still "in touch with a couple of the actors." Sadly, the contact between Dennis and his costars isn't THAT often as the former child stars are busy with their "continuing careers" and their "families." Don't worry, he says he's happy for them all! While the Dirty Heads' new video has a BUNCH of Saved By The Bell easter eggs, it seems this decision was just the co-directors call. He continued: "This all came from co-director Ryan Ewing's vision and both his and legendary Wayne Isham's direction. I must say there was so much love for our show represented in this video! Major props." Major props indeed! Now, it may seem odd to see Mr. Belding in a music video, but it isn't so weird for Dennis to pop up in the music world as he's been surrounded by music for most of his life. Dennis explained: "I've been blessed to be around music my entire adult life. I booked and managed several bands in the 70's, tried my hand at promoting bands like The James Gang, Tom Jones, and Leon Russell and finally road managed a tour with Gregg Allman in the late 70's which was immediately followed by the reunion of The Allman Brothers Band which I was not part of but got to see come together before my very eyes. It was music history!" How very rock 'n' roll! On why he chose to be a part of this particular project, the celebrated actor noted that he simply loves "the message" the song sends. Awww. He's clearly still America's favorite principal at his core! Be sure to ch-ch-check out Haskins' appearance in the Vacation vid for yourself (below). P.S. Dennis will next appear in a movie titled, Into a Dark Mind AND will have a starring role on Syfy's Trailer Park Shark. Way to go, bud! [Image via YouTube.].....»»

Here’s what the 28-year-old actress had to share with the mag: On what portraying Billie Jean King in Battle of the Sexes taught her: “I would say playing Billie Jean was a bit of a game changer. I am very nervous to communicate my opinions a lot of the time, especially publicly… She [Billie] is so direct and confident in the way that she communicates what she believes is right. To be able to step into that was a pretty powerful experience. It’s something that I still don’t feel entirely comfortable with, but it was also one of the great parts about playing her.” On speaking out for equality: “There is so much power to our voices, and we need to speak out. That’s something that I struggled with in the past, but it’s very hard not to feel galvanized right now, politically or consciously.” On what gives her hope during these uncertain political times: “Nobody is going down without a fight – for love and humanity and equality and coming together. It’s so inspiring to see marches and beautiful writing and creative work. There’s so much power and a grace coming out of so many people who have so much to lose, and the human spirit is incredible. That’s worth a fight every day. And I want to learn how to fight better.” For more from Emma, visit MarieClaire.com......»»

Clocking in at 195 minutes, the documentary is a cinephile’s dream, as Tavernier gives his own perspective at French filmmakers who have made an impact on his own moviegoing life. “I wanted to grateful, to say thank you to a lot of people,” said Tavernier, whose own credits include ‘Round Midnight and Safe Conduct. “Filmmakers, writers, and composers who have given me so many joys and illuminated my life. This is not about French cinema. This is about my vision on some French films and filmmakers. Though the documentary has candid insight and personal reminisces on such luminaries as Jean-Pierre Melville, Jean-Luc Godard and Jean Gabin, it also spotlights lesser known (but just as talented) artists as actor Eddie Constantine (he starred in Godard’s Alphaville) and director Edmond T. Gréville (Secret Lives, But Not In Vain). Along with providing viewers an immersive look at French film, the documentary also gives us a deeper look into Tavernier’s continuing passion for cinema. “The more I went into filmmaking, the more I discovered things, my admiration grew (for cinema),” said Tavernier. “When I saw the difficulty I had making some films, I became totally (impressed) of how some people like Jacques Becker, Henri-Georges Clouzot or Jean Renoir really got their film made in spite of a lot of things. My Journey Through French Cinema is now playing in select theaters. Find Us On Facebook: Hollywood Outbreak Follow Us On Twitter: @Hollyoutbreak Posted by: Greg Srisavasdi.....»»

Fire Department Gets Heat For Rescuing Piglets From Barn Fire — Only To Grill Them Up As Sausages Months Later

These little piggies were saved… for a later date. Back in February, officers from the Pewsey Fire Station in the UK saved 18 piglets and 2 adult pigs from a fire in Wiltshire that set over 2,000 pounds of hay ablaze.

Back in February, officers from the Pewsey Fire Station in the UK saved 18 piglets and 2 adult pigs from a fire in Wiltshire that set over 2,000 pounds of hay ablaze. The farm was grateful for the firefighters' fearless service, and wanted to say thank you. So, six months later, manager Rachel Rivers gave the pigs back to the officers -- in the form of sausages! Photo: Beachgoers Take Selfies With Dying Baby Dolphin The department found themselves in another firestorm after posting about the "fantastic" gift on Facebook, sharing a photo of the pork products barbequing on the grill. Animal lovers were steamed. PETA pointed out the irony of the ill-fated rescue, saying the piglets were "no better off" for escaping the fire, adding: "We'll be sending Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service packs of vegan sausages so that they can see how easy it is to truly be heroes for pigs - by sparing them all suffering." Rivers defended the gift, saying while the animals were given a six-month stay of execution after being rescued, nothing could save them from their true fate as people food. She explained to the BBC: "I gave those animals the best quality of life I could ever give until the time they go to slaughter and they go into the food chain. You do feel sad at the end of it... but to bring them down for [the firefighters] was a good way of saying 'thank you'." The department issued an apology for posting pics of the BBQ, but didn't feel too guilty about accepting the gift. A station spokesperson said: "We can tell no porkies, the sausages were fantastic." Sad to think about. [Image via BBC.].....»»

Aly & AJ Spill on New EP "Ten Years," First Dates & Social Media (Exclusive)

It’s been 10 years since Aly & AJ last released music under their eponymous name but they’re ready for a major comeback! The sister duo shared their new single “Take Me” earlier this summer and are getting ready to debut their EP Ten Years soon! Just Jared recently went behind-the-scenes of Aly & AJ‘s Refinery29 [...] It’s been 10 years since Aly & AJ last released music under their eponymous name but they’re ready for a major comeback! The sister duo shared their new single “Take Me” earlier this summer and are getting ready to debut their EP Ten Years soon! Just Jared recently went behind-the-scenes of Aly & AJ‘s Refinery29 shoot and caught up with them about everything from inspirations to growing up Disney and social media. Here’s what Aly & AJ had to share: JJ: Are there any other major life events in the past ten years that have informed your new music? Aly: I think moving out of our family home, having our parents go through a divorce and then my marriage 2 years ago were all big events that affected this new music. We’ve always been artists that write about personal experiences so it’s something that’s bound to happen when getting into the studio. Click inside to read the rest of our interview with Aly & AJ… JJ: What situations did you find yourself in that served as impetuses for writing your single “Take Me?” Were they guys in real life? Hiding behind dating apps? Aly: Well, I’m married now so it was very much inspired by AJ‘s dating life at the time and some of our girlfriends as well. When we started writing this music back in May of 2016 AJ was newly single and feeling very frustrated about the dating scene in LA, not to mention the dating app she was on at the time called Raya. We kept talking about how these guys just kept beating around the bush. They’d never initiate any sort of set time to get to know one another…..hence the creation of “Take Me.” JJ: Have you found it hard to balance music and acting? Will acting take a backseat now as you concentrate on music? We still love acting. But at this point, it will take a backseat. We’re ready to focus on music and it deserves as much attention as we can give without ignoring acting obligations altogether. We’ll be able to tour during the hiatuses from our shows. JJ: You grew up on the Disney Channel. How did that mold you into who you are today? Aly: It’s funny because everyone sees us as having grown up on the Channel, even though we were really only there for 4 years. I started Phil of the Future when I was 14 and that went on for two years, then I did my first DCOM and then another one around 17 with AJ…the rest were all music videos being played on the channel. Those tween years are very impressionable at that age whether it’s in a negative or positive way, so yeah I’d say they did. But I wouldn’t say they molded us into the artists we are now, if anything they would have stopped our growth if they had the chance to control that. JJ: Would you ever sing “Potential Break Up Song” or “Like Whoa” at a future Aly & AJ concert? They have a combined 100 million page views on YouTube! AJ: I can totally see us singing a song from the past at a concert. I wouldn’t hold your breath when it comes to “Like Whoa” though…that song really drives me and Aly nuts. But for sure Potential…or Rush….or Chemicals. JJ: Can you tease the name of the upcoming EP and/or album title? What’s the next single called and what’s it about? The EP is called Ten Years….because that’s how long it’s been since we’ve released anything under Aly & AJ. We have no idea what the second single would be….but it’s between two songs right now that we really love. Are social media apps helping or hurting people’s chances of finding true love? Has it helped or hurt your dating life? AJ: I don’t think it’s helped or hurt. It’s done nothing in a way. I’d rather meet someone naturally so I’ve given up the idea of dating apps. It really has worked for some people but it’s just not right for me. Fans of ours have actually met through past Aly & AJ Online Forums which is pretty cool. Do you remember where you went out on your first date? AJ: It was in a dumpy bowling alley in the middle of nowhere, we were on tour at the time. Aly: Somewhere in Santa Monica? That’s all I really remember. My mom actually dropped me off cuz I wasn’t old enough yet to drive myself......»»
