Olivia de Havilland’s lawsuit over the unauthorized use of her identity in “Feud: Bette and Joan” will continue next month.
Oral arguments in the veteran actress’ case against FX and “Feud” producer Ryan Murphy have been set for March 20.
However, the arguments as to whether the case should advance won’t be heard in a traditional courtroom. They’ll instead be carried out at USC’s law school so that students can watch the procedure, according to De Havilland’s attorneys. The hearing is still as official as if it were held in the courthouse.
“The Karate Kid” stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are going toe-to-toe — again — in the forthcoming “Cobra Kai” TV series.
In a teaser to the YouTube Red original series posted online Thursday, the stars of the 1984 martial arts franchise reignite their storied rivalry. Johnny Lawrence, the former high school bully played by Zabka, has gone the way of Pat Morita’s Mr. Miyagi by opening his own dojo. It’s called Cobra Kai and its students learn the way of the fist — but Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso isn’t having it with Johnny’s “no mercy” tactics.
“Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso aren’t the same people they were in high school — but their rivalry hasn’t changed one bit. The Karate Kid saga continues,” reads the synopsis.
Jeffrey Tambor, whose removal from the show “Transparent” in connection with sexual harassment allegations was confirmed Thursday, says Amazon Studios never discussed those charges with him as part of a “deeply flawed” investigation that led to his dismissal.
“I am profoundly disappointed in Amazon’s handling of these false accusations against me,” he said Thursday afternoon in a statement.
In November, as the #MeToo campaign was gathering steam, two transgender women — one his former assistant, the other an actress on “Transparent” — made accusations of harassment. At the time, Tambor apologized and defended himself, saying adamantly that he was not a predator.
Regardless of theology, or however you see life, or relate to worshiping God — as an artist, my job is to tell the truth and then try to connect with these characters and people as honestly and deeply as possible.
Jeffrey Tambor is officially gone from “Transparent,” Amazon Studios’ breakout transgender-themed series, the studio confirmed Thursday to The Times.
The move doesn’t exactly come as a surprise.
“Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to ‘Transparent,’” Tambor said in November after one transgender woman and then another accused him of sexual harassment — allegations he denied. An investigation was promptly launched.
In recent years, EDC Las Vegas made some small but meaningful moves to put women on the main stage of its flagship event. In 2016, Anna Lunoe was the first female solo act to play to its biggest crowds (Alison Wonderland and Krewella also have appeared there solo and as part of mixed ensembles).
EDC Las Vegas announced the complete lineup Thursday morning for its May 18-20 flagship, with many long-familiar faces from past events: Diplo, Tiesto, Kygo, Zedd and Kaskade among them (the official stages and set-time lists have yet to be unveiled).
Cartoon Network has announced the premiere date for its new original series, “Craig of the Creek.”
Co-created by “Steven Universe” alums Matt Burnett and Ben Levin, “Craig of the Creek” follows Craig and his best friends, Kelsey and J.P., through their after-school adventures around their neighborhood creek.
The animated show is scheduled to make its television debut with a double premiere event on March 30. Additional new episodes will air on Mondays and Fridays during the spring. But fans can catch “Craig of the Creek” in advance of its TV premiere through the Cartoon Network app and video on demand.
