Steve Carell Says ‘The Office’ Might Be “Impossible” In Today’s Social Climate

Michael Scott’s boorish shenanigans at Dunder-Mifflin might not play so well in today’s climate of heightened awareness of offensive behavior, says Steve Carell. In an interview with Esquire, Carell, currently co-starring with Timothée Chalamet in the feature Beautiful Boy, seemed to nix at least his involvement in any talk of a reboot of The Office. Despite the 2005-2011 sitcom’s resurgent popularity on Netflix, a new take on the show probably wouldn’t work. Carell says T… Read

(UPDATED with unsealed D.A. letter to defense lawyer) Harvey Weinstein appeared without handcuffs in New York Supreme Court this morning and even flashed a faint smile, a big change from his previous sober and shackled appearances in his sexual assault trial. The fallen mogul’s more upbeat demeanor suited the outcome of the day. Judge James Burke dismissed one of the six counts against him after the Manhattan D.A. agreed to drop it, and also pushed a key ruling to… Read


America Ferrera Asks: Should I Run For Office? Should You?

Ten months after helping launch Time’s Up, which is working to combat workplace sexual harassment, assault and abuse, actress America Ferrera found herself pondering another way she could help bring about societal change.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: ‘The Deuce’ Should Not Be Shut Down Over James Franco Misconduct Allegations

The Deuce

Maggie Gyllenhaal, a producer and star of The Deuce, HBO’s gritty dramatic examination of misogyny, sexual violence and exploitation in the grimy Times Square of the 1970s, says shutting down the show in response to misconduct allegations against co-star James Franco would be “the opposite of the right thing to do.” The Deuce, Gyllenhaal told SiriusXM radio host Sway Calloway yesterday (hear it above), is “about transactional sex. It’s about inequality in the… Read


Melania Trump: #MeToo Accusers Must Show “Hard Evidence” To Be Believed

Trevor Noah Savages Senate Vote That Made Brett Kavanaugh Donald Trump’s New Supreme Court Justice

“Kavanugh,” Trevor Noah began tonight’s The Daily Show. There as much booing from his studio audience. “Don't boo – vote!" Noah shot back, channeling President Obama's line at the Democratic National Convention in summer of ’16 in Philadelphia when Obama’s mention of Donald Trump during his speech elicited similar booing. Now, as then, the “vote” line went over big. “Until recently, Brett was just some guy without an inside voice,” Noah joked of Kavanaugh. “But over the… Read


Donald Trump Tweets Brett Kavanaugh Hearing Paid Protesters Got Stiffed For Bad Acting

President Donald Trump took his cues from Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends this morning, tweeting about the “paid protesters” at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. Not coincidentally, Fox & Friends this morning discussed a Wall Street Journal op ed that referenced hearing from protesters being hopping mad because they did not get their checks. Turns out, protesters were being sarcastic, which did not deter the F&F gang from using it as proof… Read
