    Joe Scarborough Slams GOP for Being ‘Ready to Euthanize’ the Elderly for the Economy

    Joe Scarborough lashed out at conservatives who want Americans to stop self-isolating and return to work amid the ongoing coronovirus pandemic, accusing them of being “ready to euthanize” the elderly.“Right now, these conservatives are making Democrats who are pro-choice actually look more pro-life because they’re only worried about the unborn,” he said on his MSNBC morning show Thursday. “It is the born — it is the weakest among us, it is senior citizens — who they’re ready to euthanize because they want Boeing’s corporate earnings to not dip too low.”Scarborough referred to an article in the New York Times that said a lawyer close to President Donald Trump advised him to get the country back to work in spite of the ongoing pandemic because, well, old people die anyway.Also Read: Fox News' Brit Hume: It's 'Entirely Reasonable' the Elderly Would Want to Die to Save EconomyIn a Tuesday town hall on Fox News, Trump pushed to reopen the country’s businesses and get people out of their homes. He said he hopes to see America “opened up and just raring to go by Easter,” which is April 12. That message has been echoed by some conservative politicians and media figures.On Thursday, Fox News host Brit Hume said it is “entirely reasonable” that elderly Americans could be fine with dying amid the coronavirus outbreak to save the U.S. economy.Hume was defending comments made by Texas lieutenant governor Dan Patrick on Tucker Carlson’s program the night before, where the 69-year-old official said, “No one reached out to me and said, ‘As a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that all America loves for your children and grandchildren?’ And if that’s the exchange, I’m all in.”Watch Scarborough share the latest stats and criticize Trump’s response above.Read original story Joe Scarborough Slams GOP for Being ‘Ready to Euthanize’ the Elderly for the Economy At TheWrap

    Comedians Join Forces to Parody Gal Gadot’s Star-Studded ‘Imagine’ Video: ‘Imagine There’s No Keto…’

    Josh Wolf and a host of other comedians used their coronavirus quarantining downtime to create a parody video of Gal Gadot’s instantly-viral “Imagine” video.The clip — featuring Jeffrey Ross, Sarah Colonna, Jon Ryan, Joey Fatone, Sinbad and Brittany Furlan, among others — starts out, “Imagine there’s no keto / you have to eat mostly carbs / I bought up all of the Purell / just to wash my car.”The rest of the lyrics make references to other hobbies and escapes enjoyed primarily by the wealthy, like dodging urban quarantines by heading to vacation homes or “only” having three cars. When Gadot posted her star-studded version of John Lennon’s “Imagine” Wednesday, one of the immediate criticisms was that it was tone-deaf for featuring rich celebrities who are quarantining in their large homes, recording themselves singing instead of making donations to relief efforts.Also Read: Let Gal Gadot, Mark Ruffalo, Kristen Wiig and More Sing 'Imagine' to Help You Forget Coronavirus (Video)“Hey guys, day 6 in self-quarantine, and I gotta say the past few days got me feeling a bit philosophical,” Gadot said when she posted the video earlier in the week. “You know this virus has affected the entire world, everyone. Doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, we’re all in this together.”Avery Pearson, one of the comedians in Saturday’s parody, mirrored that language when he posted the latest video: “We are all in this together,” he quipped.IMAGINE PARODY- we’re all in this together. @realjeffreyross @chelcielynnn @KingBach @MaryLynnRajskub @AveryFunny @sarahcolonna @JonRyan9 @ryansickler @JoshAdamMeyers @jeremiahstandup @realjoeyfatone @JadeCattaPreta @JessimaePeluso @sinbadbad @BrittanyFurlan @adamraycomedy pic.twitter.com/KZROo7b8ay— Josh Wolf (@joshwolfcomedy) March 21, 2020Read original story Comedians Join Forces to Parody Gal Gadot’s Star-Studded ‘Imagine’ Video: ‘Imagine There’s No Keto…’ At TheWrap

    MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough Calls Trump ‘Sick’ for Blaming Media for Coronavirus

    Much of Monday’s “Morning Joe” was dedicated to the coronavirus and President Donald Trump’s handling of it, as Trump himself continued to send tweets on the subject the show’s host called “sick.”“It’s sick, actually, very sick. People are dying and it’s sick, sick that he is doing this,” said MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough as he read his audience Trump’s new tweets, which blamed the media for concerns over the speed of the virus.“The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, is doing everything within its semi-considerable power (it used to be greater!) to inflame the CoronaVirus situation, far beyond what the facts would warrant. Surgeon General, ‘The risk is low to the average American,'” the president tweeted Monday morning.“So much FAKE NEWS,” Trump posted in a follow-up.Also Read: 2020 Presidential Contenders: Who's Still Challenging Donald Trump and Who's Dropped Out (Photos)In panels throughout the morning, Scarborough hit Trump and his administration officials for their response to the outbreak domestically, where the number of affected individuals grows every day. Some members of Congress — including Ted Cruz — have even self-quarantined as of Monday morning after shaking hands with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 at a conservative event in late February. Trump was also at the event.Scarborough noted the surgeon general has said the United States is past the point of containment. He then criticized presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway for mocking a CBS News reporter Friday when she asked, “are you a doctor or lawyer?”“Actually, the reporter was right,” said Scarborough. “Kellyanne Conway — arrogant, boastful and lying all at the same time. That’s a nice trifecta but what we saw this weekend, the numbers have exploded.”After reviewing how many universities have canceled classes and how many unknowns remain, Scarborough concluded, “The way the Trump administration has handled this has been disastrous.”Read original story MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough Calls Trump ‘Sick’ for Blaming Media for Coronavirus At TheWrap

    Tucker Carlson: Chris Matthews’ Sin Was ‘Being Old and Unfashionable’ (Video)

    Journalists at MSNBC paid tribute to colleague Chris Matthews after his abrupt on-air resignation Monday night, and so too did Fox News’ Tucker Carlson … in his own way.“Boy, you never thought you’d see that happen. I’ve known Chris Matthews very well since 1995 when I started appearing on his show regularly. He’s everything you think he is. Groveling in the end couldn’t save him; it never does. I would say his real sin, of course, was being old and unfashionable. That’s why they’re making him leave,” Carlson said on his show Monday night.Matthews, who was identified Friday by reporter Laura Bassett as the once-unnamed “famous broadcast journalist” she had accused in a 2017 piece of making inappropriate comments to her when she was a guest on his show, quit Monday. In recent days, the “Hardball” veteran issued an apology to Bernie Sanders and his voters for comparing a Sanders caucus win to a Nazi victory.Also Read: Mika Brzezinski on Chris Matthews Resignation: I Understand 'Cancel Culture' But Is There a 'Better Way'?In his commentary, Carlson then asked why Joy Reid, another MSNBC host, was still on the air after her 2018 scandal involving old blog posts. Two years ago, the FBI investigated the possibility that Reid’s long-defunct blog was compromised by an “external party” responsible for the homophobic content in recently unearthed posts, according to the MSNBC host’s lawyer. Similarly, he brought up other NBC News officials and hosts who have had scandals associated with their names.“As long as we’re making people leave for moral crimes, you gotta wonder why is Joy Reid still on the air, who lied and got the FBI implicated in her lie? Or Noah Oppenheim, the buddy of Harvey Weinstein, or Andy Lack? Joe Scarborough still works there? Really? Amazing,” he said.Representatives for MSNBC and NBC News didn’t immediately return a request for comment.Watch Carlson’s clip above.Read original story Tucker Carlson: Chris Matthews’ Sin Was ‘Being Old and Unfashionable’ (Video) At TheWrap

    Why Bradley Cooper Was James Lipton’s Most Memorable Guest on ‘Inside the Actors Studio’ (Video)

    The late James Lipton was asked in 2017 who among the many legendary stars and thespians he’s interviewed over the years was his absolute favorite interview, and it wasn’t some Old Hollywood icon but Bradley Cooper.Cooper, it turns out, was a student in the Actors Studio and auditioned with Lipton when the “Inside the Actors Studio” host was Dean of the school for 10 years. Lipton had personally accepted Cooper into the program. Both he and Cooper got emotional at seeing how far Cooper had come in his career since his days in the acting school.“The night that one of my students has achieved so much that he or she comes back and sits down in that chair next to me will be the night I’ve waited for since we started this thing 23 years, and it turned out to be Bradley Cooper,” Lipton told Larry King in 2017. “I auditioned him. If I had turned him down, he would’ve gone on to a different career.”Also Read: James Lipton, 'Inside the Actors Studio' Host, Dies at 93Lipton said Cooper had a special quality that he felt all of his students had, and he even noted that Cooper’s recent performance of “The Elephant Man” on Broadway was his Master’s thesis performance in the Actors Studio.“It is a unique accessibility to the self. It’s very difficult to describe, but if it’s not there, it’s not there, and if it is, you spot it. Would you recognize your sister in a crowd? That’s what happens to me when I see that,” Lipton said. “And I went down to the stage and I said to him, ‘If we accept you, you’re ready for three years with us?’ And he started to cry and said yes, and he cried again when he came on the show, as everybody knows. Wept bitterly.”A very young looking Cooper famously asked a question on an episode of “Inside the Actors Studio” to Sean Penn when Cooper was just a second year student. His question was about starring in the 1998 film “Hurlyburly” and revisiting a character he had played many years prior. Cooper was even asked about that interaction during an interview with Howard Stern in 2015 and admitted he was very nervous.Also Read: James Lipton Loved Will Ferrell's 'SNL' Impression of Him (Video)“I was terrified, first of all, it’s a television show. I actually took a long time to be comfortable in front of big audiences. When I was a kid I was terrified to do anything like that,” Cooper said. “So I really did want to know, because I thought it was interesting. He had just made this movie, and I was just working on this scene that he had done the play of years ago. But everything inside me said just shut up and don’t ask him anything.”In fact, one of Cooper’s co-stars, Louis CK, once joked that no one who ever asks a question to someone on “Inside the Actors Studio,” specifically Sean Penn, ever then goes on to be a big star. But Cooper obviously proved him wrong, as the two starred together in “American Hustle.”You can check out Lipton’s comments about Cooper above, and you can watch Cooper’s full interview on “Inside the Actors Studio” here.Read original story Why Bradley Cooper Was James Lipton’s Most Memorable Guest on ‘Inside the Actors Studio’ (Video) At TheWrap

    Elizabeth Warren Rips Michael Bloomberg Over His Response to Sexual Harassment NDAs

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren attacked Michael Bloomberg Tuesday night against over his use of non-disclosure agreements in settlements with former female employees who brought sexual harassment lawsuits against his company.Warren called for Bloomberg to release the women from their NDAs and urged the audience to reflect on his defense in the face of those accusations, saying, “I hope you heard his defense. I’ve been nice to some women … That just doesn’t cut it.”She continued, “He has gotten some number of women — dozens, who knows? — to sign non-disclosure agreements, both for sexual harassment and for gender discrimination in the workplace. So, Mr. Mayor, are you willing to release all of those women from those non-disclosure agreements so we can hear their side of the story?”Also Read: Bernie and Warren Waste No Time Going After Bloomberg at Nevada Democratic DebateWarren’s question was met with rowdy cheers from the in-house audience at the Paris Las Vegas Theater. Once the crowd died down, Bloomberg was able to respond, “None of them accuse me of doing anything other than maybe they didn’t like a joke I told.”Bloomberg’s answer was met with gasps and groans from the audience.After Warren pressed Bloomberg again to release the women from their nondisclosure, Bloomberg gave an answer that indicated he has no plans to do so, saying, “They decided when they made an agreement that they wanted to keep it quiet for everybody’s interest. They signed the agreements and that’s what we’re going to live with.”Also Read: Who Would Buy Bloomberg Media if Bloomberg Becomes President - and for How Much?The heated exchange came after a fast and furious start to the debate, in which all of the candidates seemed to take turns piling on Bloomberg, who was making his debate debut.Bernie Sanders began by criticizing Bloomberg’s stop-and-frisk policy during his tenure as New York City’s mayor, which he noted “went after African American and Latino people in an outrageous way. That is not a way you’re going to grow voter turnout. What our movement is about is bringing working-class people together. Black and white and Latino, Native American, Asian American, around an agenda that works for all of us and not just the billionaire class.” Sanders also pitched universal health care, a minimum wage increase, and fighting climate change as reasons.Warren was blunt with her criticism of Bloomberg, calling attention to his history of numerous, and well-documented accusations of sexist and profane comments made by Bloomberg in front of his employees. “I’d like to talk about who we’re running against. A billionaire who calls women fat broads and horse-faced lesbians. And no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump. I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg.”Read original story Elizabeth Warren Rips Michael Bloomberg Over His Response to Sexual Harassment NDAs At TheWrap

    Why Natalie Wood’s Daughter Decided to Take ‘Hold of the Narrative’ About Her Mother’s Death in New Sundance Doc

    Since Natalie Wood’s untimely death in 1981, theories have swirled around what happened and if anyone could’ve been responsible for her drowning. Now, her daughter, Natasha Gregson Wagner, decided to take control of the narrative around her mother’s death in Laurent Bouzereau’s new documentary, “Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind.”“In 2012, I became a mom, so it started to become very important to me that I take a little bit of a hold of the narrative and diffuse some of the noise and shine a light on all of the amazing qualities about my mom that not everybody knows,” Wagner told TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven at the Sundance Film Festival, where the film premiered.Bouzereau says he was approached by Wagner to do a documentary about her mother, and he was astounded at how much material there was to work with.Also Read: Natalie Wood's Yacht Captain Believes Robert Wagner Murdered Actress“I started looking into the story and there was so much I didn’t know,” Bouzereau said. “So I went on a journey of discovering and really putting myself in that world and discovering not only a story about Hollywood but a story of a family and I felt that I could relate to it. And I hope viewers out there, even those who may not know who Natalie Wood was, will relate because it is a story of a tragedy but it’s a story of a life well-lived as well as a story of an incredible mom, of a woman who was extremely before her time, extremely powerful. She had the power to say to the studios, ‘I want Robert Redford in my movie, ‘Inside Daisy Clover.’ He had not had a career on the big screen yet.”Wagner is the daughter of Richard Gregson and Wood, but after the couple divorced, her mother remarried Robert Wagner in 1972. Wood was married to Wagner from 1972 until her death on Nov. 29, 1981, off Catalina Island in California. The then 43-year-old actress was sailing with Wagner, as well as Christopher Walken and Captain Dennis Davern, but was found floating in the water wearing a red down jacket and a flannel nightgown.Also Read: Robert Wagner Called 'Person of Interest' in Natalie Wood's 1981 Death by InvestigatorAfter a two-week investigation, the death was ruled as an accident, but the case was reopened in 2011. In 2012, the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office amended the death certificate, changing the cause of death to “drowning and other undetermined factors.” The autopsy report indicates that there were several fresh bruises on Wood’s body when she was found. Last February, Wagner was named a person of interest in the case. In 2011, he was named “not a suspect” by the sheriff’s department. Investigators said Wagner has refused to speak with them since the case was reopened. There has long been speculation about the death of the “West Side Story” star — at first, Wagner, Walken and Davern told detectives that she took a dinghy and went to shore. Over time, investigators say, Wagner and Davern’s accounts shifted.Watch the video above.Read original story Why Natalie Wood’s Daughter Decided to Take ‘Hold of the Narrative’ About Her Mother’s Death in New Sundance Doc (Video) At TheWrap

    Megyn Kelly’s Mom Wanted to Be in ‘Bombshell’ – and You’ll Never Guess Who She Wanted to Play Her (Video)

    Megyn Kelly’s mother was rather excited when she learned that a movie (“Bombshell”) was being made that revolved around her famous daughter’s time at Fox News. So excited, in fact, that Mom had a recommendation about who could play her in the film.“There was an incident early on where my mom, who lives in upstate New York where I’m from, called me up and she said, ‘Why don’t you tell me they were making a movie about you?'” Kelly recalled on Friday’s “Real Time With Bill Maher.”“I’m like, ‘Ma I don’t know anything about it.’ She goes, ‘I want Stormy Daniels to play me,'” Kelly said laughing. “So I have no clout. She didn’t get a role. She was disappointed.”Also Read: Megyn Kelly Calls 'Bombshell' an 'Incredibly Emotional Experience'Later on, Mom went to the theater to see “Bombshell,” in which Charlize Theron earned an Oscar nomination in her role as, yes, Megyn Kelly.“And then she tells me, she goes, ‘When I stood up in the theater and told everyone I was your mother, they said very nice things about you,'” Kelly said, grinning. “I’m like, ‘Oh for the love of God.'”Kelly opened up to Maher about her exit from Fox News and how the state of the media weighed heavy on her.“I miss sort of being a voice of reason in the storm because there’s so much hysteria in the media for and against,” she said. “And when I left “The Kelly File,” I remember feeling like I might have a societal obligation to stay because I did owe it to my audience to separate the wheat from the chaff and I thought I did a good job of it. But I have three little people who I owe more to,” she added, referring to her kids Yates, Yardley and Thatcher.Also Read: Megyn Kelly on Her Public Resurfacing: 'I've Chosen to Speak Up for Women Being Harassed and Abused'Kelly said she found the “messed up” and “biased” media “disheartening,” saying she felt that way “for a long time, not just since Trump.”Maher noted her very public ouster from NBC after her on-air comment about the appropriateness of blackface as part of Halloween costumes. He defended her, saying he didn’t think what she said was “that awful.”“I mean, you even apologized for something that I didn’t think was that awful,” he said. 
It’s like, why can’t you just say, ‘OK, I was a little inartful about how I expressed that. My bad. I’m sorry move on with our lives.’ Instead of, ‘No, you have to go away for all time.’ Wow well who are these perfect people who have never made any mistake?”Watch Kelly’s entire interview with Maher in the video at the top.Read original story Megyn Kelly’s Mom Wanted to Be in ‘Bombshell’ – and You’ll Never Guess Who She Wanted to Play Her (Video) At TheWrap

    Meghan McCain: ‘I Was Laughing My Ass Off’ at NYT Presidential Endorsement

    Meghan McCain says she reacted to the New York Times editorial board’s dual endorsement of senators Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar by “laughing my ass off.”“First of all, you’re endorsing two women with two completely ideologically different views on their platforms,” “The View” co-host said on the show Tuesday, before adding that everyone will have to “choose one” of the two very different candidates.“This is not how this works,” continued McCain, who worked on her father’s John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. “Also, on the final point of this, you chose both of the women. Just say, ‘I want a woman. I don’t really care about politics. I don’t care about anything else.’ Just double down on identity politics.”Also Read: New York Times Endorses Both Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren for 2020 Democratic PrimaryShe called the two-way endorsement a “huge act of cowardice” and noted she didn’t expect much else from a “garbage publication.” That caused co-host Joy Behar to chime in, arguing she didn’t agree the Times is a “garbage publication.”“It is now,” McCain said, but Behar cautioned against condemning the whole newspaper for “one incident.”The Times’ editorial board put all pre-endorsement presidential candidate interviews on the record for the first time ahead of the big double endorsement. Last week, deputy editorial page editor Kathleen Kingsbury announced the intention to make it the “most transparent” endorsement in the editorial board’s history.‘NY TIMES’ ENDORSES WARREN, KLOBUCHAR: After ‘The New York Times’ editorial board broke tradition by endorsing two presidential candidates, the co-hosts question if they made the right decision. https://t.co/1091s9WYqN pic.twitter.com/kzHKtIjkRE\- The View (@TheView) January 21, 2020Read original story Meghan McCain: ‘I Was Laughing My Ass Off’ at NYT Presidential Endorsement At TheWrap

    Oprah Says Her Exit From #MeToo Doc Is Not a ‘Victory Lap’ for Russell Simmons (Video)

    Oprah Winfrey reiterated why she pulled her support from the documentary about the sexual assault accusations against Russell Simmons, saying that his pressure had nothing to do with it and that this is not a “victory lap” for the Def Jam Records co-founder.“This is not a victory for Russell, and I unequivocally say I did not pull out because of Russell. This is not a victory lap for him. I cannot be silenced by Russell Simmons for all I’ve been through,” Winfrey said on “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday.Winfrey clarified that she took her name off of Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering’s documentary, now titled “On the Record,” because she felt new information had surfaced and those issues would not be able to be addressed in time before the movie was set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.Also Read: Oprah Says Her Exit From MeToo Doc Is Not a 'Victory Lap' for Russell Simmons (Video)“Before the public pressure had started, before Russell had gone with his Instagram, I had gone to the filmmakers, and I said to them, ‘Houston I think we had a problem because new information had come forward,’ the very first time this was announced,” Winfrey said. “And I said ‘I think I think we need to pull out of Sundance and if we can’t pull out of Sundance, I’m going to have to take my name off. But I don’t want to pull my name off, because it’s going to be a big hullabaloo.'”“We need to get it right. There’s some inconsistencies in the story that we need to look at,” Winfrey continued.“On the Record” is directed by “The Hunting Ground” and “The Invisible War” directors Dick and Ziering and most notably follows former music executive Drew Dixon at the beginning of the MeToo movement as she grapples with the decision to come forward about her accusations about Simmons. Dixon says she was raped by Simmons in his apartment in 1995 and quit the company shortly after. Simmons has denied all accusations of non-consensual sex.Also Read: 'The Father' Starring Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman Acquired by Sony Pictures Classics Ahead of SundanceWinfrey however mentioned that the story of a new accuser, Alexia Norton Jones, had come to light, and she felt the documentary needed to be expanded and broadened to include her as well.“Until the thing is on the screen, you have the right to change your mind and make changes,” Winfrey said, adding what she learned from this experience. “Don’t put your name on anything that you do not have creative control over.”Winfrey also pushed back on the notion that she’s not supporting the stories of black women.To me that is ridiculous, and also ridiculous to think I could be intimidated by Russell Simmons,” she added.Winfrey told The New York Times last week that Simmons had contacted and pressured her to drop her support from the documentary and was even contacted by other people questioning Dixon’s credibility.Also Read: Ethan Hawke, Dee Rees, Emily Mortimer Among Sundance 2020 Jury Members“He did reach out multiple times and attempted to pressure me,” Winfrey told the Times. “I told him directly in a phone call that I will not be pressured either into, or out of, backing this film. I am only going to do what I believe to be the right thing.”Winfrey’s decision to break from the documentary also resulted in it being dropped from airing on Apple TV+ later this year. In a statement to TheWrap, she explained she still supports the work of the filmmakers, but that the desire to take the film to Sundance is what forced her to step away.“Revealing hard truths is never easy, and the women in our documentary are all showing extraordinary strength and courage by raising their voices to address sexual abuse in the music industry,” Dick and Ziering said in a follow-up statement earlier this month. “While we are disappointed that Oprah Winfrey is no longer an executive producer on the project, we are gratified that Winfrey has unequivocally said she believes and supports the survivors in the film.”Check out Oprah’s full interview on “CBS This Morning” above.Read original story Oprah Says Her Exit From MeToo Doc Is Not a ‘Victory Lap’ for Russell Simmons (Video) At TheWrap

    John Mulaney Broke the News to Comedy Central Execs That Dave Chappelle Abandoned His Show

    Before John Mulaney made a career for himself as a comedian, he was a temp at Comedy Central and had the awkward task of interrupting an important meeting to tell network executives that its biggest star at the time, Dave Chappelle, “is gone.”While promoting his new Netflix special “John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch” on Sirius XM’s “Netflix Is a Joke,” Mulaney said that part of his job description as a temp at CC at the time involved manning the phones. He was put to the test when the call came in that Chappelle had abandoned production on “The Chappelle Show” and ran off to Africa.“They were like, ‘You have to interrupt the meeting and tell them,'” Mulaney remembered. “I was like, ‘OK!’ I went in and was like, ‘So … Dave Chappelle’s gone.'”Also Read: John Mulaney Says It's Time for 'Perverted Garnish' Mistletoe to 'Be MeToo-ed' (Video)After some convincing that Chappelle was really gone and not simply late, executives turned their focus to securing whatever footage had already been shot for the show’s third season.“They were going to put me on a plane that day and send me to L.A. to get the physical tapes — so they couldn’t be destroyed — and fly back to New York with them,” Mulaney said. “And that was interesting, but it felt like a hindrance to being a comedian.”So Mulaney quit that job, moving on — not decamping to another hemisphere, but freelancing as a copywriter while pursuing a career as a stand-up.“John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch” is currently streaming on Netflix.Read original story John Mulaney Broke the News to Comedy Central Execs That Dave Chappelle Abandoned His Show At TheWrap

    ‘Million Dollar Listing’ Host Ryan Serhant to Pay Someone’s Rent Next Year: ‘We Do as Much as We Can’

    “Million Dollar Listing” host Ryan Serhant and YouTuber Casey Neistat announced Wednesday evening they’re teaming up to pay someone’s New York City rent for one year.“Had I not been in New York City, I would have never then followed the weird career trajectory that has taken me to where I am today, you know, a lot of which I credit to New York City,” Serhant told TheWrap ahead of the announcement. “New York City allows all the apartments and homes that I sell to be worth what I sell them for and allows me to have my own beautiful home. It’s where I met my wife, where we had our first baby… like, my career was made in New York City.”Also Read: Ryan Serhant on 'While We're Young' Role, 'Million Dollar Listing: NY' Return: 'Pure Insanity' (Video)Still, he acknowledged he saved up before his big move to the city back when he wanted to be an actor. Serhant and Neistat both know New York can be prohibitively expensive — especially for creatives.“I try to give back as much as I physically and financially can, like every year we do as much as we can,” Serhant told TheWrap, though he was quick to point out the year’s rent won’t come without expectations. After filling out an application and being selected, the winner will be mentored by Serhant at a distance, expected to work on their dreams and goals, not just use the year to save money or explore the city. They’ll have public check-ins with Serhant and Neistat, too, so viewers will stay updated on their progress.“How can I help somebody, right, like… New York has given me a lot,” he said. “I got a great career today and I’ve only just started and it’s important that I give back as much as I possibly can.”Read original story ‘Million Dollar Listing’ Host Ryan Serhant to Pay Someone’s Rent Next Year: ‘We Do as Much as We Can’ At TheWrap

A camera crew was given unprecedented access to the team during that season when all eyes were already on them, when Oprah was inviting Jordan to her show, and when just about every word spoken was covered and scrutinized by the media.Also Read: How ESPN's '30 for 30 Podcasts' Season 6 Pushed Boundaries to Be More 'Culturally Impactful' Than EverESPN teased the existence of the documentary as far back as last year, but this latest trailer over a year later shows the breadth of the documentary series and the enormous number of people sitting down to talk.Jason Hehir, who directed the “30 for 30” on “The ’85 Bears” and most recently the excellent “Andre the Giant” HBO documentary, directs “The Last Dance” from producer Mike Tollin.

But when Golding, who plays a rival gang leader from Asia, attempts about to buy him out of his business, McConaughey’s character is none too pleased.“There once was a young and foolish dragon who came to ask a wise and cunning lion about acquiring his territory,” McConaughey says as the start of his fable. “There’s only one rule in this jungle.
