'Fantastic Four' Co-Stars Jamie Bell And Kate Mara Are Engaged
Huffington Post - about 1 month
At least one good thing came out of the disastrous 2015 reboot of “Fantastic Four.” Cast members Jamie Bell and Kata Mara met while on the film and are now engaged, a rep for the actress confirmed to E! on Friday.  Bell, 30, and Mara, 33, have been a thing since the fall of 2015, according to People. And although Bell told E! last March that they were not planning a trip down the aisle, things must have changed because Mara posted a photo on Twitter last week where she was sporting a superhero-sized ring. #NYGiants #Steelers pic.twitter.com/ss5X7M5ko2 — Kate Mara (@katemara) January 8, 2017 No wedding date has been announced.

Hollywood, It's Time To Stand Up
Huffington Post - 3 months
One morning, over breakfast, my father said to me "If a man can't go his own way, he's nothing. The moment you give up what you stand for for fame or money, that's the moment you lose your soul." Yeah, it's heavy talk for a kid over Rice Crispies, but, my Dad was a pretty deep guy. And, he was a man who stood up, and spoke the truth. Sometimes, it made me cringe with nervousness. But, in the end, it was what made me most proud. And that was how that morning's particular chat started. I asked why more people like him didn't stand up and speak up. He told me the truth. Hollywood is full of pussies. It always has been. There have always been those that bowed out from doing the right thing, and hid behind whatever cloak they think made their cowardice palatable. And then, there were those few. The mavericks. The do-what-is-righters, no matter what the cost is on the other end of maintaining their integrity. The ones that stood up to be counted on the right side of history. The ...

Ariana Grande has officially been inducted into the Malfoy family.  The cover art for the pop star's new single "Focus" features Grande sporting a silvery platinum 'do, a far cry from her famous brunette locks.  In a mashup we never saw coming, one fan, who noticed the singer's new hair color is startlingly similar to the signature hue of the on screen "Harry Potter" character Draco Malfoy, created a piece of fan art for the ages.  Grande shared the photo on her Instagram account and tagged actor Tom Felton, who brought Malfoy to life. 6 days til Focus lmaoooo @t22felton A photo posted by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on Oct 24, 2015 at 8:41am PDT Felton, who was just cast in an untitled indie war drama starring Kate Mara, also responded positively to the pairing and offered up his services for Grande's next music video. @ArianaGrande if you need an actor in your next music video, I can dig up a very dashing white wig. — Tom Felton (@TomF ...

FX's 'American Horror Story' Has Lost It (The Story, That Is)
Huffington Post - over 1 year
FX aced its American Horror Story promos leading up to the October 2011 premiere: even as someone who isn't typically into horror stories, the singular image, above, that was used to advertise the show -- notably, with no other explanation -- did the trick. It's visually arresting, with an undeniably menacing creature (is it even human, I wondered?) defying gravity as it approaches what appears to be a Victoria's Secret runway angel who has passed out from malnutrition, all set against a sensual backdrop that implies both the satin sheets of a bordello and the outpouring of blood. This image alone supports the title of the series: it tells a story, asking questions that beg to be answered. Is this an S&M thing? Probably; the person who viewers would come to know as "Rubber Man" is in a telltale vinyl (Latex? Is there a difference?) outfit, and there's obviously an intensely sexual implication here. At the same time, Rubber Man is defying the laws of nature, and we are told this ...

Yahoo News - almost 2 years
WASHINGTON, May 8, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Oceana released a new public service announcement (PSA) today to spread awareness about the threats of drift gillnet fishing gear to marine wildlife in advance of major decisions by West Coast policy makers coming this June. The PSA features actress and ocean activist, Kate Mara, urging the public to help her and Oceana get swordfish drift gillnets out of the water, and to replace them with cleaner gear types in order to protect iconic whales and other marine life that call waters off the U.S. West Coast home. Kate Mara noted "whales are intelligent and social animals. Spectacular ocean wildlife — like whales, dolphins, sea lions, and sea turtles — rely on the nutrient-rich waters off the U.S. West Coast to feed, migrate, and breed.

‘Star Wars’ Spinoff Director Fired Because ‘Fantastic 4’ Isn’t Any Good?
The Inquisitor - almost 2 years
The director of the second Star Wars spinoff film, Josh Trank, has officially left the Star Wars universe, and it may have not been on good terms. On the surface, of course, everything is fine and dandy. Trank, Lucasfilm, Disney, et. al are all nodding their heads in agreement on an amicable separation. However, just below the surface, a not-so-great upcoming Fantastic 4 film may be at the heart of the split. Star Wars Episode: The Force Awakens will be released later this year. That film is the next chronological step in the overall Star Wars saga, taking place after the events of Star Wars Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi, and is being directed by J.J. Abrams. Next year, the first Star Wars spinoff film, Star Wars: Rogue One, will be released and will be directed by Gareth Edwards. Rogue One reportedly focuses on events that happened before Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, and its plotline will center around a group of Rebel Alliance X-Wing pilots attempting to steal the pl ...

House of Cards: A Miniseries Review
Huffington Post - about 3 years
House of Cards: A Miniseries Review Lloyd I. Sederer, MD These violent delights have violent ends. And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which as they kiss consume. -- Romeo and Juliet The second season of Netflix's first adventure in a self-produced miniseries has just been released. Not one episode dribbled out with a weekly ration but the entire second season up for continuous viewing on our varied wireless and cable devices -- the only limits being the viewer's appetite for this dark, fatalistic (but bloodless) tale of power as well as any human need for sleep or satisfying other natural functions. House of Cards gave us, in season 1, Kevin Spacey as vengeful South Carolina U.S. Congressional Democrat with a drawl, Robin Wright as his elegant and perhaps even more 'take no prisoners' wife, and Kate Mara as a lion cub reporter with grown up claws for what would be the Washington Post. They bounce off one another, and off other D.C. luminaries, like atoms in a ...
