Mrs. Mooch Eyes Role in ‘Real Housewives of New York’

Nicholas Hunt

Get ready for Mrs. Mooch.

The wife of Donald Trump’s wildest and shortest-lived spokesman—Anthony Scaramucci, who lasted just 10 days in the job (or was it 11?) after telling a journalist that Steve Bannon was, uh, only interested in pleasing himself—is being lined up to join the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City, according to a report in the New York Post’s Page Six.

Deirdre Scaramucci, née Ball, described as “reality TV-gold” by one insider, is perhaps most famous heretofore for filing for divorce from her husband when she was nine months’ pregnant in 2017 as an expression of her unhappiness at him for accepting a role as White House communications director without consulting her.

Noah Centineo confirms He-Man role

OHMYGOSSIP — Noah Centineo has confirmed he is to play He-Man.
The 22-year-old actor – who rose to fame playing Peter Kavinsky in Netflix’s ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ – has announced he will star in Sony Pictures and Mattel Films’ upcoming live-action reboot of the ‘He-Man and the Masters of the Universe’ 1980s toy line and cartoon series.
When asked ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’ whether he’ll be taking on the iconic role, he said: Yeah, yeah.”
The ‘Perfect Date’ star then joked: “I have an affinity for being in my underwear. I don’t know what it is. I’m very excited, it’s quite an opportunity.”
The cartoon was previously brought to the big screen in 1987 as a live-action movie with Dolph Lundgren playing He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor.
A young Courteney Cox also earned just her second film credit playing the character Julie Winston who aides He-Man in his quest to save Earth from the invading Skeletor.
The upcoming film will be helmed by Aaron and Adam Nee, while Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, penned the script after taking over from David S. Goyer.
Plot details are as-yet unknown but the original animated series focused on Prince Adam who lives on the planet Eternia and can use his Sword of Power to turn into He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe, by uttering the words “By the Power of Grayskull!”
He-Man must use powers to defend Eternia from the evil Skeletor whose goal is to conquer the mysterious fortress of Castle Grayskull, from which He-Man draws his strength, so he can rule Eternia and the rest of the universe.

Report: Jussie Smollett Loses Role In Broadway Play After Scandal

Jussie Smollett now has some new ish to worry about and it’s all because of his alleged hate crime situation in Chicago.

Specifically, his hate crime stunt looks to be the reason he’s out as the lead in the upcoming revival of the Broadway play Take Me Out.

The play’s originally run started in February, 2003 and had 355 performances. It also won a Tony Award for Best Play.

Fast forward to the present where Smollett, who is biracial and openly gay was supposed be the lead as  Darren Lemming, a mixed-race professional baseball player at the peak of his career who decides to come out of the closet.

The stage drama sounds like it was ripped from current headlines as it looks at issues like homophobia, racism, classism and toxic masculinity in men’s sports.

Wow. Sounds like the perfect role for Smollett. Or at least it would’ve been.

The story goes that Smollett auditioned for the role back in January, just 12 hours before he allegedly staged the faux hate crime involving two Nigerian brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo.

The Chicago Police Dept. alleged that the 33-year-old actor was lying and that he staged the hoax to boost his celebrity profile.

A source tells DailyMail that Smollett had already won the role in the play.

“Everything was set to go and the producers were planning to announce that Jussie and Zachary Quinto were starring in the play last month,” said one Broadway insider.

“Everyone was so supportive after the attack and then suddenly, everything shifted.”

Another DailyMail source close to the play said the events involving Smollett left them in shock.

“Here is a kid who is on a hit television show, has made a name for himself, and gets the chance of a lifetime.”

And whether Empire is cancelled or not, it would’ve been a great transition vehicle for Smollett.

“He would have come off the sixth season of Empire and kicked off the next leg of his career with a role on Broadway. And not just that, the lead role in one of the best plays of the century in his Broadway debut.”

That source then wondered what a lot of people are thinking about the actor:

“Why on earth would someone throw that all away?”

The DailyMail did add that a source involved in the production would only say that no casting had been announced or confirmed at this time. That individual also confirmed that Smollett took part in a reading of the play in January.

There was also no response from Smollett’s crisis manager, so it’s yet to be seen if Smollett may still make his Broadway debut.

Dress For A Role: Style Lessons From A Costume Designer

Most people need years to build a good wardrobe. Keri Langerman does it in a matter of hours. On a Friday night, Langerman, a costume designer based in New York City, got a call from her director about a project she’s working on. An actor was just cast for the leading male role and was scheduled to fly out to see her the following morning. Langerman needed to pull his entire film wardrobe together, less than 24 hours after confirming his identity, and she didn’t have any information about his sizing.

“You’d think you’d be giving this kind of information, but it’s not always provided for these sorts of projects,” she laughs. “When that happens, I look up photos of the person online and try to guess their size. Then I buy things that are a little bigger, with the expectation I’ll need to tailor them down later. It’s like trying to hit a bullseye — you’re more likely to hit your target if you shoot a million arrows. That way, when the moment comes, you can pull out fourteen cinematic outfits.”

Langerman has been working as a costume designer for over a decade. She’s dressed leading Hollywood men such as Robert Redford, Jude Law, and Jeff Goldblum. She’s worked on the costume teams for Moonrise Kingdom, Inside Amy Schumer, and most recently, Vox Lux. Each project comes with its own challenges, like having to dress an invisible body, but her process always starts the same way. She reads a script for emotional language and keys in on the mood, and then tries to reflect those tones through her costume choices. As she puts it, it’s about making the characters memorable for an audience. “There’s a lot of mood boarding,” she explains of the process. “We’ll research photos, both historical and contemporary, and try to express a character’s mood through their clothes. Sometimes it’s about staying true to a historical era, but sometimes it’s also just about expressing an idea.”

Langerman’s last film project, Vox Lux, is about a character named Celeste (played by Natalie Portman) who survives a high school shooting in Staten Island, where the shooter leaves a sickening and macabre arrangement of the dead and wounded. Celeste writes a eulogistic song with her sister (Stacy Martin), which becomes a national sensation, catapulting her into fame and, later, transforming her into a rockstar. The film alludes to real-world tragedies, such as the Columbine High School massacre and 9/11 terrorist attacks. And as Celeste grows into her role as a celebrity, she’s increasingly portrayed as impulsive, unstable, fragile, angry, and trapped at the emotional age when she first became famous. The film is dark and swirling — and the costumes underscore those emotions.

 

 

“The film is divided into two acts, and while the acts are rooted in a certain time period, the director and I wanted the clothes to be more about the film’s mood,” says Langerman. “So we were careful to choose outfits that felt relevant to the period, but weren’t necessarily a statement about the period. We wanted simple, classic silhouettes, but lots of darker, moodier colors.”

For the first act, Jude Law, who plays Celeste’s hovering manager, wears five-pocket jeans and Members Only style jackets — a racing style that’s distinguished by its narrow collar band, epaulets, and knitted trims. The style was popular in the 1980s among music fans and club goers. “For the first act, a lot of Jude’s clothes came from eBay, Etsy, and consignment stores,” says Langerman. “We wanted a Members Only style, but not an actual Members Only jacket. Basically, something that someone back then may have worn if they couldn’t afford the actual brand. Then we pulled that same silhouette through to the second act, where he’s wearing a Valstarino jacket and Eidos trousers. We wanted to keep the silhouette the same to remind the audience that he was still the same character — his career just advanced, so he had a bit more money and dressed up a little more. It was a conscious decision to not completely change his wardrobe, but to just change the color and quality of his clothing.” (Notably, Law’s monochromatic style, pictured above, was inspired by Cary Grant’s famous gray flannel suits).

I ask Langerman if there are things she keeps coming back to when dressing male characters — tried and true items that seem to look good on everyone. Aside from dark jeans, she struggles to find a theme. “I think almost anyone can look good in a Valstarino,” she says. “I’m currently working with Lakeith Stanfield right now and I would love to see him in a Valstarino, but I don’t want to repeat the same outfits. I want to stay true to the character and the script. Sometimes you think ‘oh, this brand works and I love this shoe,’ but you want each character to be special.”

Langerman pulls a surprising amount, however, from in-the-know menswear brands. Jude Law, as mentioned, was dressed in a Valstarino and pair of double-pleated Eidos trousers (the second of which were specially made for the film by the Isaia factory). Jason Segal wore a double-breasted, shawl collar cardigan from Inis Meain for his role in The Discovery (“I was looking for sweaters that were rich in color and texture; pieces that were cozy, breathable, and easy to wear. I considered putting him in a sports coat but when I found this cardigan I knew it made more sense for his character,” she wrote on Instagram). And Langerman put Robert Redford in Epaulet’s trousers. “We wanted a custom order, but it was a four-week turnaround and we only had one week,” she says. “But I knew it had to be those pants — they had the perfect rise and cut throughout the leg, and the fabric was just great, so we had our tailor do the alterations on-site.”

How does a costume designer know about these obscure brands? Langerman says she follows StyleForum and certain online boutiques, such as No Man Walks Alone. The forums give her an important consumer perspective, so she knows people’s experiences with clothes and doesn’t see things through rose-tinted lookbook glasses. “A lot of this is about finding people who know more than me and have great taste,” she admits. “Then mix it all together for a character. When I’m dressing a man for a film, I also like to dig a little deeper to reach that style enthusiast who may be in the audience. But it’s a constant process and I’m always searching. Sometimes I fall asleep scrolling through my phone.”

 

 

How to Dress Yourself as a Character

As a costume designer, Langerman knows how to communicate a character’s story and personality through their clothes. That skill isn’t limited to just dressing actors for films and TV shows, however, it can be pulled through into everyday life. We ask Langerman how she feels about certain style-related topics.

Dressing for Body Type and Skin Tone

“It helps to think about your body type when dressing, but I also think it depends on what you’re dressing for. Dressing for your body type can mean one thing for the office, but another thing for weddings or weekends. In the US, there are certain rules for how you can look what we consider to be traditionally ‘better,’ whether that means looking slimmer, taller, or more ‘masculine.’ There are certainly options out there that will check all those boxes, but some of the most stylish men also don’t wear traditional silhouettes at all. Those are more avant-garde aesthetics, but they may reflect the person better.

It’s the same with skin tone. Generally, you want a bit of contrast between your clothing and skin tone. That will make you look what’s traditionally considered to be ‘good.’ However, I love a good monochromatic look. I love wearing a t-shirt in a similar color as my skin tone, which most will say ‘wash me out.’ But that might be closer to how I want to present myself for a day — it shows how I’m feeling and who I am. I think the rules are good if you want a traditional look, but you can’t pin it to just rules.”

Developing a Personal Sense of Style

“I think the key is to focus more on how clothing makes you feel, rather than just how it makes you look. Wear clothes that you feel represent a certain side of you. As human beings, we have so many different sides, so you can wear a beautifully tailored suit to work, but also hemp pants on the weekend if that’s who you want to be. I can tell immediately when something works on someone at a fitting — their mood and posture change, there’s a hop in their step. Sometimes I think people get too hung up on, ‘oh I can’t wear green’ or ‘that’s not my style.’ But the more forgiving you can be about how you look, the more you’ll allow yourself to experiment with different brands and silhouettes, which in turn will allow your wardrobe to feel more personal and about you. I find that’s when people are happiest with their wardrobe.

 

 

You also have to give things a chance. Whether you’re an actor or not, I think it’s difficult to change your silhouette and not feel like you’re ‘wearing a costume.’ Sometimes it takes a while to acclimate to a fuller jacket or a slimmer pair of jeans. At fittings, I’ll sometimes tell an actor to take a walk around the room before making a decision on something. You have to give something a chance to settle in. Just know that you almost always have to get things tailored. Tailoring is not expensive, you can go to your local dry cleaner.”

Developing an Aesthetic Vocabulary

“I think you have to carve time into your life and put effort into it. I think sometimes we have unrealistic expectations that just because something looks a certain way on a model, that’s how it’s going to look on us. Part of this is about processing someone’s body and personality through clothes, and there’s no one size fits all. Dedicate some time to going out and trying on different clothes, or ordering things online and be ready to return them. Even for actors, just because something works on a model doesn’t mean it works for someone on-screen. Until you try something on, everything is hypothetical.

It can help to pay attention to blogs, Pinterest, Instagram, etc. For me, it’s about finding new images and paying attention to how people are wearing things. Save photos you find to be inspirational. When you see how people are breaking the rules, you realize there’s no wrong way to do it.”

Dressing as a Character 

“I think it helps to first break your wardrobe out for the various parts of your life. You can have your work wardrobe, weekend wardrobe, formal wardrobe, etc. If your wardrobe isn’t connected to a certain part of your life, you’re never going to wear it. Here in New York, our overcoats are like our cars in the winter time, so you know you need a good overcoat. This also helps you figure out what kind of personas you want to project for different settings.

Next, think about what kind of adjectives you would want someone to use when describing you. Would it be fashionable, avant-garde, or traditional? Then, when you look at a new piece of clothing, do those adjectives come to mind? If they don’t, are there ways you can wear it to help communicate those ideas? I think this can seem so basic, but when you’re out shopping for clothes, it can be easy to get led astray with all the options that simply ‘look good’ that you forget how to communicate those messages. Think about how you would want to be dressed if you were a leading man in a film.”

Republican Who Was Considered By Trump For UN Ambassador Role Has One of the Largest Black-Owned Businesses

John E. James just lost his senate run in Michigan, but he is a major up-and-comer in Republican circles, and is part of BLACK ENTERPRISE’s BE100s – its annual listing of the nation’s largest, most-successful black-owned businesses.

President Donald Trump was reportedly looking at James to replace departing United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, according to some media outlets and sources acquainted with the situation. That has not come to fruition as media outlets are reporting former Fox news alum Heather Nauet is Trump’s pick for the next UN ambassador.

James’ Backstory 

A Republican and Iraq War veteran, James was not successful in his bid to unseat Senator Debbie Stabenow in the November 6, election. James lost to the Democrat incumbent senator 46% to 52%.

James was reportedly in Washington, D.C. in the latter part of November to interview with Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and National Security Adviser John Bolton, a source said. Bloomberg News first reported that James was being examined for the position of United States ambassador to the United Nations.

James is president of James Group International Inc., a Detroit-based supply chain management company. The business was No. 27 on BE’s 2018 BE 100s Top Companies list, raking in $ 119 million in revenue last year.

He is the son of James Group International founder and chairman John A. James, a seasoned and eminent black businessman in Detroit. James Group International, the parent company for several management and logistics companies, has been ranked as a BE 100s company, an annual listing of the nation’s largest black businesses for many years.

A West Point graduate, James holds a bachelor’s degree in Law and Systems (Industrial) Engineering.  He earned a master’s of Supply Chain Management and Information Systems from Penn State University Smeal School of Business in 2014, and an MBA from the University of Michigan Ross School of Business in 2015.

According to the company’s website, he currently serves on the Michigan Minority Supplier Development Council (MMSDC) Board of Directors, the Detroit Workforce Development Board and as a Member on the Michigan Council on Future Mobility Board of Trustees.  Personal accolades include The Michigan Chronicle’s Class of 2014, “40 Under 40” and DBusiness magazine’s “30 in Their Thirties” in 2012.

James joined James Group International in 2012, and became its president in 2014. Since his arrival at James Group, its workforce has climbed notably, and revenue grew by $ 100 million. It estimated 2016 revenues of more than $ 130 million.
