WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25

COCAINE BEAR---tv spot released for the comedy movie.

STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS---Anson Mount commented on Season 2 and the live-action LOWER DECKS crossover with Jack Quaid and Tawny Newsome, “That [the crossover] is not even the craziest thing that we did. There’s one episode I’m thinking of towards the end of the season – and you’ll know when you see it – where it required us to work many weekends. But we were so excited about it, it was not laborious. We were excited to show up for Sunday rehearsals and all the things we’re having to do to pull together this one episode. We’re really excited about it.”
He commented on Carol Kane joining the cast, "She is lovely. I love working with her. Obviously, I’ve been a fan of hers my entire life. So when I saw her I was like, ‘What! That’s crazy.’ And I was so excited and it’s so out of left field. But she is so much fun to work with because she has this quality about her where – she’s been doing this for decades – and she has this thing where she never assumes she knows how it’s done, and I don’t know how she manages to retain that sense of purity in any given scene… She’s consistently happy and funny and makes the most interesting choices. We’ve been so lucky to have her.”
Also, Jonathan Frakes is pessimistic about the movie future of STAR TREK, “Movies are tough! Even JJ [Abrams] can’t get this fourth movie off the ground. All those wonderful rumors? Noah Hawley was attached to a STAR TREK movie, and Quentin was toying with people’s emotions about doing a movie. If those two names can’t get a f*cking movie made, I don’t know. TV is the future, it seems to me.”





AMERICAN PRIMEVAL---the cast for the Netflix six-part Western miniseries includes Taylor Kitsch, Jai Courtney, Dane DeHaan and Betty Gilpin. The synopsis says the miniseries is, “a raw, adventurous exploration of the birth of the American West. The violent collisions of cultures, religions and communities as men and women fight and die for control of this untamed wilderness – for a land they truly believe is their destiny.”

RICK AND MORTY---Adult Swim announced it has fired co-creator Justin Roiland after he was charged with felony domestic abuse and felony false imprisonment by his then-girlfriend. His voice roles will be recast.

SUPERMAN & LOS---Michael Cudlitz (THE WALKING DEAD) will play Lex Luthor in Season 3.

INVINCIBLE---Robert Kirkman commented on the status of the live-action movie based on the Amazon animated tv series,“We’re very much still working on that. Sometimes movies take a little bit longer. I think it’s safe to say, if anything, the show has just helped that immensely. People are very excited about that movie potential at Universal. So we’re riding that excitement and trying to push things forward as quickly as possible.”

CONFESS, FLETCH---Greg Mottola said he is writing a sequel based on the novel FLETCH'S FORTUNE, “It may never get made, but I’m gonna try my best.”

MADONNA---Universal Pictures cancelled the Madonna biomovie in which she was the director/co-writer.

TRIVIA---character actor John Quade was known for his sinister-looking face and was a friend of Clint Eastwood's which led to him playing villains in four Eastwood movies. In HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER, Quade played the freight wagon driver who tried to stab Eastwood's The Stranger in the back, but he stopped when The Stranger said, "You're gonna look awfully silly with that knife stuck up your ass." In THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES, Quade played the leader of the Comanchero gang who tried to rape Laura Lee (Sondra Locke). In EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE and ANY WHICH WAY YOU CAN, he played Cholla, the leader of the Black Widows biker gang. Contrary to his menacing appearance, Quade was known as a nice guy and his wife, Gwen, said, "He was one of the nicest men you'd ever want to know, but he looked mean and nasty. He looked like he could do murder and mayhem at any moment, but he was a big teddy bear." Quade ran for Congress unsuccessfully with his tongue-in-cheek campaign slogan, "Not just another pretty face."
Before he became an actor, Quade was a high-tech designer/worker at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and some of the NASA spacecraft he worked on are still on the Moon.

In HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER, Quade played the freight wagon driver who tried to stab Eastwood's The Stranger in the back, but he stopped when The Stranger said, "You're gonna look awfully silly with that knife stuck up your ass."




In THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES, Quade played the leader of the Comanchero gang who tried to rape Laura Lee (Sondra Locke).




In EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE and ANY WHICH WAY YOU CAN, he played Cholla, the leader of the Black Widows biker gang.

So it's official and, I guess, has been for some time now:
No one waits for the actual outcome of a courtroom trial.

And Jonathan Frakes, shame on you for dropping the f-bomb. It's cheap and easy.

Yeah, but he sure is right. Trek movies are almost impossible now.

Yep, look what they did to Johnny Depp and he was acquitted.

In Wokewood you're guilty until proven innocent. And when proven innocent, you're still not gonna get your job back or be in good graces any time soon (if ever again). But they're smarter than us, so they keep telling us.

When that whole thing came to a conclusion I remember thinking how nice it would be if Depp went on to offer a role to Heard in some upcoming project.
To me it would have been a really substantial and authentic move towards moving forward and healing--not to mention a great opportunity to put into action all the virtue-signaling gobbledygook that Hollywood celebs keep regurgitating.

If you were charged with felony domestic abuse and false imprisonment you too would also be fired from your job. You are now a liability to your employers and undergoing legal processes which will consume your productivity and work.

I think I'm mostly surprised by how difficult this is to comprehend for a few here.

At no point did I say that it was right for that to happen under any circumstance.
So there is really no need to belittle anyone's comprehension skills.

Oh, maybe because this didn't always happen. Or that being charged doesn't necessarily mean it will go to court. Or that if it does go to court, that it will be lengthy or time consuming. He may even settle out of court -- even if innocent -- just to get on with his life.

There are people who get sued in Hollywood all the time, so get thrown out in pre trial, some go to court, but they don't lose their jobs, they don't quit their jobs.

Let's just assume it was lengthy and time consuming -- he could have at least be placed on leave or temporary suspension, until such time as proven guilty or proven innocent, but that's not what happened.

When dealing with the law, it's not as clear cut as you make it seems. Talking down to us doesn't make you right.

Fellas, what I am stating is that if you are charged with a felony your employer will become aware of that, and they will choose to no longer employ you. Nobody should be above this very simple and risk conscious decision of your employer. Moral turpitude is a concept for a reason. You are asking that this person should be able to skirt that decision by their employer for some unknown reason. If this person is found guilty of the charges brought upon them, your comments defending them from the necessity of the law and the legal decision of an employer will age poorly. My comments are just stating that his employer has legal precedent to terminate employment.

Fair enough. I'm not familiar with Roiland but following this story since it broke has made me aware that he has a particular fanbase that would still defend him to keep his job even if the pedophilia and grooming accusations turn into actual substance that netted him prison time or worse. Cults of personalities are a very real thing in the past decade. I always hoped it was just a banging song by Living Colour.

Gee, I would like to think my employer wouldn’t ruin my livelihood before I’m found guilty of a crime. Further more I’m pretty sure the rich elite aren’t fired until such a verdict comes down. I’m not aware of any defacto precedent that employers fire staff over issues not related to work.

If someone was arrested for a felony, I would be surprised if the person was not fired/placed on unpaid administrative leave/or otherwise cut loose. The association looks bad on the employer, and depending on the crime, the employer has to deal with being constantly hounded by the press, being contacted endlessly by customers, fellow employees and others appalled by the crime, and even fielding death threats. Most employers don't want to deal with that type of blowback whether deserved or not. The sad reality is that no matter how many times people say innocent before proven guilty, the vast majority of people assume someone who has been arrested is guilty until proven otherwise. And that is nothing new.

In many states, employers can fire employees for no discernible reason. I'm from Georgia. I live in Texas now. Both states have laws in place to protect employers for firing employees with no notice given and no justification required.

Why? People should be held accountable for their actions in equal. We need to stop handling the wealthy/powerful with white gloves and allow the applicable law and societal norms to affect them like they would you or me.

I'm aware of "Right to Work" states. We're not talking about firing for no reason. We're talking about an employer firing for being accused of a crime.
