‘Uncle Drew’ Cast Picks Their All-Star Dream Team Out Of Their Other Costars

After appearing as an old man known as Uncle Drew in a series of Pepsi commercials, basketball superstar Kyrie Irving is bringing the geriatric character to the big screen in a feature film of the same name.

The athlete’s first movie role finds him getting a group of his old basketball-playing friends together in order to head out onto the court once more. And those friends just happen to be played by basketball legends Shaquille O’Neal, Nate Robinson, Reggie Miller, Chris Webber, and Lisa Leslie. Oh, and best of all, they’re all aged to appear in their 70s and 80s, as well.

While the cast, even as elders, can clearly kill it on the basketball court, FANDOM wanted to know who they’d choose to be on their team when it comes to just living everyday life.

We asked the stars, including stars Lil Rel Howery and Nick Kroll, which of their castmates they’d trust to babysit their children and who they’d want to go on a long road trip with like their characters do in the film.

Kyrie Irving in 'Uncle Drew'

And thanks to a hilarious dance sequence in the middle of the movie, we asked the gang which athlete or actor they’d most like to choreograph a routine with. Luckily for us, the question led to Leslie and Robinson showing off some impromptu moves of their own.

Check out the video above to see who the cast drafts for their dream team and catch Uncle Drew in theaters now.

It’s the 40th Anniversary of Grease: Where’s the Cast Now?

This weekend means it’s officially been 40 whole years since the T-Birds and Pink Ladies first danced and sang their way into our hearts, but we’re still hopelessly devoted to Grease.

When Grease, the movie based on the hit Broadway musical, made its big screen debut in 1978, it was the highest grossing film of the year. Today, it remains the second most-successful movie musical of all time, according to Box Office Mojo, having only recently been ousted from the top spot by Disney’s Beauty and the Beast live-action reboot.

From Olivia Newton John’s good girl Sandy to John Travolta’s greaser Danny, let’s take a look at what the cast of the beloved ’50s nostalgia flick is up to today.

John Travolta

Fresh off his breakout turn in 1977’s disco drama Saturday Night Fever, John Travolta cemented his place in musical movie history as Rydell High’s resident bad boy Danny Zuko. He went on to earn a number of Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA and SAG nominations over the years for his roles in instant classics like Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty and Hairspray.

For his most recent project, the now 64-year-old Travolta stars as legendary Gambino crime family boss John Gotti in the mobster biopic Gotti—in theaters June 15.

Olivia Newton-John

At 29, Olivia Newton-John wasn’t sure if she could pass as the high school-aged Sandy Olsson. But it was clear to John Travolta that she was the one that he wanted.

“She had a brilliant voice, and I didn’t think there could be any more correct person for Sandy in the universe,” he told Vanity Fair in 2016. Travolta was determined to get her the part. “I insisted that she be met and that we cast her.”

Primarily a singer, Newton-John has since described Grease as a “turning point” for her musical career, allowing her to transition from exclusively country songs to pop hits like “Physical.”

Newton-John has won several American Music Awards and four Grammys and is considered one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. Unfortunately, she is currently on a touring hiatus due to a recurrence of the breast cancer she was first diagnosed with in 1992.

Stockard Channing

After winning fans’ hearts as Betty Rizzo, queen of the Pink Ladies, Stockard Channing went on to thrive both on stage and the small screen. In addition to starring in numerous Broadway shows, the now 74-year-old Channing notably played First Lady Abbey Bartlet on The West Wing as well as Alicia Florrick’s mother Veronica on The Good Wife. She is a Tony winner and 2-time Emmy Award winner.

Jeff Conaway

Jeff Conaway went from playing Danny himself in the Broadway production of Grease to the top greaser’s finger-snapping sidekick Kenickie in the movie. He later earned two Golden Globe nominations for his role as out-of-work actor Bobby Wheeler on the TV series Taxi.

Conaway passed away in 2011 at the age of 60 from pneumonia with sepsis following a long battle with drug and alcohol addiction.

Didi Conn

Didi Conn has stayed in touch with her Grease roots over the years, reprising her role as Frenchy in 1982’s Grease 2 and making a cameo as a waitress at the Frosty Palace in 2016’s Grease: Live!—a television special in which singer Carly Rae Jepson took over as Frenchy. She is the only actor to appear in all three screen adaptations of the franchise.

Barry Pearl

Although his movie career cooled in the years following Grease, Barry Pearl—a.k.a. T-Bird member Doody—found success in the children’s entertainment world playing Professor Tinkerputt in NBC’s 1994 primetime special Bedtime with Barney: Imagination Island as well as the stage production Barney’s Big Surprise. The now 68-year-old actor was also the only original cast member besides Conn to show up in Grease: Live!

Michael Tucci

After strutting his stuff as T-Bird Sonny LaTierri, Michael Tucci moved on to television series such as The Paper Chase, It’s Garry Shandling’s Show and Diagnosis: Murder. He is currently teaching performing arts at St. Francis High School in La Cañada Flintridge, California, and recently revived his acting career as Melissa McCarthy’s father in The Heat.

Jamie Donnelly

Jamie Donnelly had already had plenty of time to perfect her portrayal of Jan on Broadway before landing the role of the goofy Pink Lady in Grease the movie. She is also widely known for originating the roles of Magenta and the Usherette in both the Roxy and Broadway productions of The Rocky Horror Show. Today, Donnelly is an acting coach and continues to appear in guest spots such as that of Peggy Shaugnessy on Ray Donovan.

Kelly Ward

Kelly Ward’s acting career largely came to an end just a few years after he played Putzie—a role created specifically for Grease the movie—but his work in the entertainment world continues to this day. The now 61-year-old T-Bird currently works as a voice director for Disney Television Animation in addition to teaching musical theatre at the University of Southern California.

Dinah Manoff

Val Kilmer Steps Out with His Lookalike Son After Being Cast in the Top Gun Sequel

Val Kilmer is returning to the big screen in the upcoming Top Gun sequel, but all the attention this week was on his 23-year-old son, actor Jack Kilmer.

The Heat star, 58, stepped out with Jack at a private screening of his son’s new film Carte Blanche. The duo, who share an uncanny likeness, posed for pictures together alongside the film’s director, Eva Dolezalova at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Thursday.

The film tells the story of a young actor who is suddenly launched into stardom as the lead in a major movie franchise. “Attending a high-profile Hollywood function, he comes across a mysterious man from his past, which begins his downward spiral as he is pushed to the brink of his sanity,” Dolezalova explained in the film’s tagline.

Meanwhile, Kilmer will return as hotshot fighter pilot Iceman in Top Gun: Maverick alongside his costar in the original, Tom Cruise, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed.

Kilmer’s comeback role in the film follows what has been a mysterious Hollywood hiatus for the actor.

Eva Dolezalova, Jack Kilmer and Val Kilmer.

His health issues first became apparent in January 2015, when a spokesperson told PEOPLE that he was rushed to the hospital “for a possible tumor.” Soon after, he took to Facebook to deny having a tumor, saying only that he “had a complication.”

After denying the illness for years, Kilmer finally opened up about his cancer recovery to The Hollywood Reporter in December 2017 in an interview alongside his children with his ex-wife Joanne Whalley: Mercedes, 26, and Jack, 22.

The article revealed that the actor’s two-year fight with throat cancer had “taken its toll” on the family and noted that Kilmer had undergone a procedure on his trachea which made his voice raspy and left him short of breath.

Kilmer credited his Christian Scientist faith in helping with his recovery and has undergone chemotherapy, according to THR.

Top Gun: Maverick is scheduled for release on July 12, 2019.

Drake Brings the Cast of ‘Degrassi’ Back Together For “I’m Upset” Visual

Building up the hype around his upcoming Scorpion album, Drake recently released a high school reunion-themed music video for “I’m Upset.” Accompanying the reveal and release date announcement for his fifth studio album, the actor-turned-rapper brought back his co-stars from Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Directed by OVO collaborator Karena Evans, the video is set in the world of Degrassi a decade after Drake/Jimmy Brooks’ graduation. Starting off with Drake waking up on the floor of the Air Canada Centre, the 6 God gets a reminder for the Class of 2007 reunion at Degrassi Community School. After rushing to the tailors to get outfitted, Drake and castmate Shane Kippel hop in a yellow LaFerrari and make their way to the gathering. The reunion starts out pretty tame at first but as the partying kicks up, things get wilder. The video ends with a fire breaking out at the reunion with attendees evacuating the school and a cut to Jay and Silent Bob delivering their signature rap.

In case you missed it, Drake officially received a co-writing credit on Kanye West‘s “Yikes” record.

John Boyega Slams People Who ‘Harass’ ‘Star Wars’ Cast Members

Star Wars: The Last actor star John Boyega took to social media today to slam all of the franchise’s haters who like to harass cast members online. Here is what he had to say!

The 26 year old star’s tweets followed Kelly Marie Tran’s decision to delete her Instagram account as she was sick and tired of having to deal with all kinds of negative comments and trolling.

But she was not the only one who whipped her account due to the online harassment.

Back in 2016, Daisy Ridley also left social media after she had posted about gun control.

‘To the majority of the Star Wars fans thank you for supporting us and putting yourselves in our shoes. You understand that there’s a process so much appreciated!’ Boyega wrote.

‘If you do not like Star Wars or the characters understand that there are decisions makers and harassing the actors/actresses will do nothing. You are not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. Even if you paid for a ticket!’ the man said in another tweet.

This month, Tran deleted all her Insta posts after she allegedly got sexist, racist and generally hateful comments on her profile.

‘On social media, a few unhealthy people can cast a big shadow on the wall, but over the past four years, I have met lots of real fellow SW fans. We like and dislike stuff, but we do it with humor, love, and respect. We are the VAST majority, we are having fun and doing just fine,’ Johnson wrote.

‘Mamma Mia 2’: Meet the Hot New Additions to the Musical Sequel’s Cast

Ten years after the cast of Mamma Mia! first sang and danced their way into theaters and fans’ hearts, they’re back with a flashy sequel — and more ABBA music, of course!

In the final trailer that was released this week, we see a pregnant Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) ruminating on the life lessons she learned from her mother, Donna (Meryl Streep). And while it appears that Donna isn’t alive in the sequel, her friends Rosie (Julie Walters) and Tanya (Christine Baranski) tell Sophie stories of her mother’s pregnancy.

Those tales lead to a huge portion of the film taking place in flashbacks from 1979, when a young Donna was first meeting her three love interests (played in present day by Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård, and Colin Firth.) That means the sequel is delivering us brand new cast members to play the younger versions of the characters we met the first time around. (We are also getting Cher in the sequel playing Meryl Streep’s mother, even though they’re only a few years apart in real life.)

But since we already know Queen Cher, let’s get to know the hot new actors a little better before Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again hits U.S. theaters on July 20.

Lily James as Donna Sheridan

Who She’s Playing: The younger version of Meryl Streep’s character, Donna

What You Might Know Her From: After a supporting role in Downton Abbey, 29-year-old Lily James played the titular character in 2015’s live-action Cinderella. In 2017 she found success in two major films: Baby Driver and Darkest Hour. But the pressure is really on now that she has to play a younger version of Meryl.

Jeremy Irvine as Sam Carmichael

 

Who He’s Playing: The younger version of Pierce Brosnan’s Irish-American architect, Sam

What You Might Know Him From: 27-year-0ld Jeremy Irvine made his film debut in 2011’s War HorseThe English star then made headlines for being a method actor in 2013, reportedly going without food for two months and doing his own torture scenes for The Railway Man. He also played the lead in Roland Emmerich’s Stonewall, which was criticized for white-washing the LGBT history story and casting “straight-acting” Irvine as the star.

Josh Dylan as Bill Austin

Who He’s Playing: The younger version of Stellan Skarsgård’s Swedish sailor, Bill

What You Might Know Him From: Josh Dylan is a relative newcomer to Hollywood, only having appeared in the 2016 Brad Pitt film Allied before being cast in Mamma Mia. But the actor landed in the tabloids last year when sexy photos of him filming the musical with co-star Lily James started popping up online.

Hugh Skinner as Harry Bright

Who He’s Playing: The younger version of Colin Firth’s British banker, Harry

What You Might Know Him From: Aside from appearing in a few British TV series, including Fleabag, W1A, and Poldark, 33-year-old Hugh Skinner is mostly known for his role as a student revolutionary named Joly from 2012’s Les Miserables. Hopefully, as he nabs more work in Hollywood he also signs up for a social media account or two.

Alexa Davies as Rosie

Who She’s Playing: The younger version of Julie Walters’ character, Rosie

What You Might Know Her From: 23-year-old Alexa Davies appeared in a number of TV shows before landing her role in the Mamma Mia! sequel, most recently appearing on Hulu’s Harlots.

Jessica Keenan Wynn as Tanya

Who She’s Playing: The younger version of Christine Baranski’s character, Tanya

What You Might Know Her From: 31-year-old Jessica Kennan Wynn guest starred on Showtime’s Billions and NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura, but she may be best known for her role as Heather Chandler in Heathers: The Musical.

Ben Affleck Throws Cast and Crew of New Movie a Hawaiian Luau — and Lindsay Shookus Was There

Ben Affleck is the best kind of coworker.

The 45-year-old actor threw the cast and crew of his upcoming film, Triple Frontier, a traditional Hawaiian luau on Saturday.

Around 500 people enjoyed the celebration, which included a full roasted pig pit at the venue. Entertainment included fire dancers, as well as a three-piece Hawaiian band, and Affleck provided shuttle service for all of the cast and crew.

A source tells PEOPLE, ““They are all really enjoying the shoot.”

“Ben has been planning this luau for weeks,” the insider adds. “He wanted to do it for everyone as the shoot has been rough with 14 days of rain and training.”

In attendance was girlfriend Lindsay Shookus, who the source tells PEOPLE got into town earlier this week. The two were spotted holding hands in Honolulu back in March.

A source previously told PEOPLE that Affleck and the Saturday Night Live producer, 37, are “very much still together.” Another source said the couple are “not rushing anything,” but that they “enjoy each others company” and “are in a committed relationship.”

Affleck has been filming Triple Frontier in Hawaii over the past few months.

The film — from A Most Violent Year director J.C. Chandor and Oscar-winning screenwriter Mark Boal (The Hurt LockerZero Dark Thirty) — tells the story of five estranged friends who reunite to help end the reign of a South American drug lord.

Charlie HunnamOscar Isaac, and Garrett Hedlund also star. The four were photographed during a training session for the film together in March, where Affleck showed off his giant back tattoo.

Meanwhile, earlier this month, Affleck spent Easter weekend exploring Oahu, Hawaii, with ex Jennifer Garner and their three children Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6.

Jen seemed excited about the trip,” a source told PEOPLE at the time of Garner, 45, who stayed at a resort with a female friend while Affleck staying at a nearby house and caught up with the kids. “She hasn’t been to Hawaii for a while and always loved it.”

Among the activities during their getaway was a trip to Sea Life Park. “They made a family trip to interact with dolphins, sea lions and stingrays,” a source told PEOPLE. “They spent several hours at the park and looked like they had the best time. The kids were all very interested in learning about the animals. They all seem like huge dolphin fans.”

Affleck and Garner separated in 2015 and filed for divorce last year, but the former couple have maintained an amicable relationship for the sake of their children.

“The kids love when they all spend time together,” says the second source. “As long as Ben keeps working on himself, Jen is happy. She will continue to support him because it benefits the kids.”

Tiffany Haddish Wants To Cast Meryl Streep As Her Mother In ‘Girls Trip 2’

Tiffany Haddish has figured out how Meryl Streep could believably play her mother in the sequel to “Girls Trip.” The comic has been vocal about the dream casting ever since she hurdled a velvet rope on the Oscars red carpet just to meet the screen legend.“I told Meryl that I wanted her to play momma one day,” she said during her visit to “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Monday.

“I want her to be my mother in Girls Trip 2. I think it will be so cool if we find out that (my character) Dina has a white mom!” Haddish said she had to explain how the genetic possibility of the mother-daughter combo to her co-stars Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

“I was like, ‘She could have married my dad, see… Maybe my real momma passed and then she married my dad… but she’s turnt up like Dina, and then you find out why Dina is the way she is – because she gets it from her stepmomma, who happens to be Meryl Streep’,” she said. Tiffany believes Streep would add another Academy Award to her collection if she can convincingly play her hood mama.

“If you see Meryl Streep turnt up like me, you’ll be like, ‘She can do anything…!’ She’ll get an Oscar for that… I need to see her hood side,” Haddish said.

Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke’s Daughter Maya Is Joining Stranger Things Season 3 Cast

Stranger Things is adding a member of Hollywood royalty to its cast.

For the Netflix series’ upcoming and highly anticipated third season, Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke‘s 19-year-old daughter, Maya Thurman-Hawke, has been tapped to play “alternative girl” Robin.

“Maya Thurman-Hawke is headed to Hawkins as Robin, an ‘alternative girl,’ ” the streaming service tweeted. “That is her literal character description so get ready for some angst.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

According to Variety, Maya’s character will discover a secret in Hawkins, Indiana — the fictional town where the sci-fi series is set.

In January, Hawke opened up to PEOPLE about how proud he was of his daughter, whom he shares with ex-wife Thurman. Maya stars as Jo March in the new BBC adaption of Little Women — a role last played by his old friend and costar Winona Ryder, who also stars in Stranger Things.

“Words cannot explain,” Hawke told PEOPLE from Cafe Artois at the Sundance Film Festival.

“She was always an artist, writing poems, singing songs. She didn’t discover acting until junior year of high school,” he explained about Maya.

“It’s one of the most amazing moments of my life watching her in Little Women,” Hawke continued. She didn’t do a good job, she did a great job. To see your child thrive, and to see her thrive at a profession that you have a lot of respect for, that I’ve dedicated my life to, I was so proud of her.”

He was especially pleased seeing her follow in the footsteps of Ryder, who also starred in an adaptation of the novel in 1994 — the same year she costarred with Hawke in the Generation X cult classic Reality Bites. 

“Winona in Little Women was astounding, so for me to see my daughter play a part that one of my favorite actresses played, and Katherine Hepburn before her, it’s awesome,” Hawke said.

‘Moesha’ Cast Reunites During An Emotional Segment Of ‘The Real’

Actress Brandy...

Source: Getty Images / Getty

Hit sitcom Moesha  stole our hearts almost two decades ago when Brandy first stepped into the iconic TV role of a Black girl just trying to figure it out in Los Angeles.

Even though the show went off air years ago, the memories of the show lives on.

For the first time in 16 years, the entire cast came together for an emotional reunion on ‘The Real.’

Sheryl Lee Ralph, Shar Jackson, Countess Vaughn, Ray J, Markus T Paulk, William Allen Young all took the stage to toast to the show.

“This is such a great moment, this is beautiful, this is god, this is love. Thank you guys,” Brandy said tearfully.

Instagram Photo

During the interview Loni Love asked William Alan Young, who played Moesha’s dad ‘Frank,’ if he considered the importance of playing a Black father on TV when he took the role. Young said the depiction came naturally to him.

“When I received, letters saying  ‘I wish you were my dad,’ or ‘ I wish I had a dad like you.’ it didn’t change me because that was my music anyway. It just affirmed to me that everyone who is on TV has to take it seriously, someone is watching you.”

When asked if they would sign up for a reboot, the cast enthusiastically said “Yes!”

“We ended on a cliff, ” Brandy told the crowd.

The cast also paid homage to the cast members who passed, Lamont Bentley, who played Brandy’s best friend and Yvette Wilson who played Andell Wilkerson.

Here are some videos of the “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” cast recording “Let’s Generalize About Men” because it’s been stuck in our heads since Friday


Here are some videos of the “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” cast recording “Let’s Generalize About Men” because it’s been stuck in our heads since Friday

Ever since the third season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend premiered this Friday, everyone has been spontaneously breaking out in song. More specifically, everyone is singing the episode’s breakout hit, “Let’s Generalize About Men,” because it’s the hilarious misandrist anthem that the world needs right now.

One of the best things about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is that Rebecca Bunch manages to say what everyone wishes they could say (or, in this case, sing) while also pointing out just how ridiculous it is. “Let’s Generalize About Men” is the perfect example of why Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is one of the best shows on TV. It satisfyingly expresses things that are annoying about men while also poking holes in the broad generalizations people make when talking smack with their friends.

Because the lyrics of “Let’s Generalize About Men” are just so perfect, we want to know more about it. And that’s when the beauty of social media really becomes palpable. That’s because Rachel Bloom, the brains behind Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and the actress who plays Rebecca Bunch, shared some behind the scenes videos from creating the masterpiece on her Instagram. And they’re so much fun.

In one Instagram post, Rachel Bloom showed the girls practicing the choreography.

Yes! Bloom, Donna Lynne Champlin (who plays Paula), Gabrielle Ruiz (who plays Valencia), and Vella Lovell (who plays Heather) look so amazing while body-rolling and singing the hilarious lyrics, “Let’s get super lit and not admit this is some kind of primal ritual we need now and then.”

In another video, Bloom shows the ladies singing the song at the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend table read.

If you’ve ever wanted to be a fly on the wall to see how all of the actors might react to some of the show’s outrageous songs, this is your chance.

Yeah, it’s pretty exciting that we get to see Josh’s reaction to Bloom singing, “There are not exceptions, all three million men are like this!” Considering that Josh left Rebecca at the alter, her character needs to denigrate and denounce the entire male gender, and doing that with one’s girlfriends really is a part of the healing process after a bad breakup.

We’ve all been there.

Laughing is also important, and “Let’s Generalize About Men” successfully satirizes the wine-infused nights shared among a group of girls who just need to make unfounded statements about why men are terrible. Like saying, “All every man does everyday is watch porn, eat wings, burp, fart, and snore.”

It’s all in good fun on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. And “Let’s Generalize About Men” is just about one of the funniest songs ever made.

‘Happy Death Day’ Cast Competes in Horror Movie Trivia

Happy Death Day opens in theaters today. The cast — Jessica Rothe, Ruby Modine, and Israel Broussard — along with director Christopher B. Landon recently visited FANDOM, where we tested their horror movie chops.

We thought Landon would win this easily; he’s a horror movie buff and written/directed numerous horror films including multiple Paranormal Activity sequels.

We threw them a couple softballs before getting into some more obscure movie trivia. You might be surprised to see who took this one in the end.

What’s also evident in our cast interview is just how well they get along, which is also apparent in the film. Happy Death Day has an interesting plot. The main character, Tree (La La Land’s Rothe) gets murdered by a masked killer on her birthday (hence the title). But after she “dies,” her birthday — and her death day — resets, and she gets killed again.

You can learn more about what makes Happy Death Day unique from other slasher flicks here, and read our review of the new horror film here.

Geordie Shore in chaos as three of the cast fail to turn up for filming after big-money pay row

FILMING for the next series of Geordie Shore has been thrown into chaos as cast members refused to go into the house following a furious row over pay.

While loyal stars including Abbie Holborn and Chloe Ferry all arrived in Newcastle yesterday ready to go into the house, some of their co-stars weren’t so eager.

Insiders tell The Sun Online Marnie Simpson, Sophie Kasaei and Nathan Henry were still wrangling over contracts just hours before they were supposed to start – while there is still confusion over whether Aaron Chalmers or Marty McKenna will even be involved in filming.

A source said: “The cast were all supposed to go back into the house and into lockdown yesterday, but at the very last minute producers cancelled.

“Some of the cast were seething about it. They’re all busy people and have other contractual agreements so the show has to run to schedule for them.

“There are still a couple of people rowing about pay and refusing to budge until the contracts are agreed to their terms. It’s a nightmare.

“They have no idea when they’re going to be starting filming again but they’ve been promised it will be imminent.”

Insiders also revealed the cast were also confused about who would even been going into the house.

The Sun Online revealed Gaz Beadle had quit the show after finding out he was going to become a father for the first time.

He will return to the show to say goodbye but will not be filming for the whole duration of this series.

Meanwhile, Marty McKenna sensationally revealed he’d been sacked by MTV last month – and sources tell us no one knows if he’s actually coming back or not.

The Sun Online contacted MTV who had no comment to make on why filming had been cancelled.

This isn’t the first hurdle that’s hit Geordie Shore bosses in recent weeks.

Just days ago The Sun Online the full extent of the on-going pay row, with filming having already pushed back for a whole week.

A source said: “Many of the shows biggest stars have issues with terms in their agreement with the programme makers which has taken up time.

“While everyone has now signed for the new series several of its key cast were refusing to agree terms.”

Let’s hope MTV can give them what they want…else it could be curtains for Geordie Shore.

Just one third of cast members in British films are women – less than in 1913, new figures show

WHEN you sit down to watch a British film, on average less than a third of the cast will be female – and there’s a decent chance one of them will be Dame Judi Dench.

This male-female ratio has barely changed in 100 years, according to the British Film Institute, which has created a new database of UK movie stats at filmography.bfi.org.uk.

Dame Judi Dench is the most prolific British actress who is still working – having starred in 41 films

Sean Connery
James Bond, portrayed here by Sean Connery, is the joint most featured character in British film along with Queen Victoria

While the records show a fascination with Queen Victoria, the news is not so good for women working in the business.

The 19th century monarch, played twice by Dench, has been portrayed in as many films as the fictional spy James Bond.

But the stats back up claims that sexism is entrenched in movies. In 1913, 31 per cent of the cast in all the movies made that year were female. By 2017, the figure is just 30 per cent.

Those actresses who don’t play a named character are most likely to end up playing an unnamed prostitute or a housekeeper.

Kate Dickie, the most used British actress of the last decade whose roles have included a lady of the night, said: “I don’t have any more prostitutes in me. I don’t know how we will change the film industry until we change society.”

The data also reveals how tastes have altered over the years. In the 1970s it was the king of horror Peter Cushing ruling at the box office and in the 1990s ‘lad’ Keith Allen nabbed the most roles.

Boycotts and Brain Damage Cast a Dark Shadow Over Football Season

Mindy Reed has been in love with the NFL for more than 50 years. As a kid in Connecticut, she wore a Bart Starr jersey and bonded over the game with her dad. Fandom helped Reed break into the old-boys’ club as she climbed the corporate ladder at Dell and connect with football-mad Texans when she switched careers and became a librarian in Austin. Now she’s giving it all up.

Reed, 61, has decided to boycott the NFL because no team has offered a job to Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback whose protest of police brutality during the national anthem last season ignited a cultural firestorm. Reed, who is white, says police have pulled over her husband for “driving while black,” and tuning out the NFL is a way to show solidarity. She has plenty of company. Kaepernick’s supporters range from the active players who have continued his protest and celebrities like Spike Lee to the 175,000-plus signatories of a petition on Change.org called #NoKaepernickNoNFL.

Critics too are emboldened. After several Cleveland Browns players knelt during the anthem before an August preseason game, the police and paramedic unions planned to withdraw from a pregame flag ceremony.

For the NFL, the simmering conflict is one of many dark clouds looming over the start of the season. September has long been when America’s real national pastime reasserts its grasp. Yet rather than fighting over fantasy teams or marveling at Tom Brady’s longevity, fans in the run-up to this season have been consumed by soberer topics. Be it the Kaepernick debate, violence against women or the nature of the game itself, a growing number of Americans are becoming fed up with football.

The most important NFL news this summer was not a big free-agent signing but a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in July. Researchers examined the brains of 111 deceased NFL players and diagnosed 110 of them, or 99%, with the degenerative brain disease CTE. The study, said author Dr. Jesse Mez, “suggests, with a lot of caveats, that this is probably not a rare disease–at least among those who are exposed to a lot of football.”

Two days after the findings were released, Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman John Urschel, who’s studying for a Ph.D. in mathematics at MIT, abruptly announced his retirement. His decision was reportedly linked to the study. Urschel is one of several NFL players who have retired in their prime rather than increase their chances of developing serious brain injuries. These concerns are trickling down to the youth level: some 23,000 fewer students played high school football last season than in 2015, and schools and peewee programs are dropping their teams for lack of interest.

Alleged violence of a different sort defined another off-season story. On Sept. 5 an arbitrator upheld the NFL’s six-game suspension of Ezekiel Elliott, the young Dallas Cowboys star who led the NFL in rushing last season, for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy after an ex-girlfriend accused him of domestic violence. Officials in Columbus, Ohio, declined to pursue charges, and Elliott has denied the allegations.

Then there is the matter of Kaepernick, whose absence from the game may well be more significant than his presence. He is no longer the player he was in 2013, when he led San Francisco to a Super Bowl berth, but he did throw 16 touchdowns last season against just four interceptions. Yet since March, NFL teams have signed 20 new free-agent quarterbacks who have never completed a pass in the regular season. Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti admitted it was about more than talent when the team considered signing Kaepernick, and he asked fans to weigh in. Former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis–who pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in a double-murder case but didn’t lose his NFL livelihood–said Baltimore passed on Kaepernick because his girlfriend posted a racially charged tweet. This, when NFL teams have signed players who have been convicted of domestic violence, illegal gun possession and DUI manslaughter.

Last year the NFL’s once reliable regular-season TV ratings dipped by 9%. They could fall again if more people like Reed turn away. “Who knows what I might discover out there,” Reed says of life without the NFL. “I certainly know how to read a book.”
