Here's The Plot Of The 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them' Sequel
The Huffington Post - 8 months
When we last left the world of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the Magical Congress of the United States of America was imprisoning Gellert Grindelwald, who’d been lurking around disguised as Percival Graves (Colin Farrell). Next year’s “Fantastic Beasts” sequel will pick up months later, after Grindelwald has escaped and begun recruiting Dark Magic disciples.  Warner Bros. revealed the plot Monday, in conjunction with the start of production. The still-untitled “Harry Potter” spinoff will revolve around a young Dumbledore (Jude Law) recruiting his former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to stop onetime BFF/crush Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) from “gathering more followers to his cause — elevating wizards above all non-magical beings.” In a loyalty-testing mission surrounded by “an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world,” Newt reunites with Tina (Katherine Waterston), her sister Queenie (Alison Sudol) and the non-magical baker Jacob (Dan Fogler).

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anna Kendrick and more celebs 'audition' to be Stephen Hawking's new voice
Yahoo News - 11 months
Stephen Hawking's synthesized voice is perhaps just as famous as his brilliant mind. The theoretical physicist and cosmologist has "spoken" using the same Intel-made computer system for the past two decades. Now, however, Hawking says he's ready for a replacement. SEE ALSO: Stephen Hawking has a message for Trump: Don't ignore climate change In a spoof video, the English scientist sifts through audition tapes from celebrities vying to provide Hawking's new voice. Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his pitch with a rap, proclaiming his own voice "dope as hell" while Hawking's is "mad robotic, if I'm being honest."  Actor Liam Neeson tells Hawking, "Listen to my voice. It's deep. It's sexy. It's got a tinge of ... physics." Rebel Wilson and Anna Kendrick give it a go, as does Bill Gates.  Even Eddie Redmayne, who portrayed Hawking in the 2014 film The Theory of Everything, aims for a second chance at Hawking-related fame, though he didn't go the flattery route.

These Celebrity Baby Names Might Be Everywhere Soon
Huffington Post - 11 months
We know that celebrity baby names can impact the popularity charts for years to come. Way before Emily Blunt welcomed baby Hazel, its choice by Julia Roberts pushed it an astonishing 600 places up the U.S. popularity chart.  Heather Locklear and Reese Witherspoon were moms to early Avas, which turned that old Hollywood Glamour name into a modern star. And Kevin Costner and Harrison Ford were both dads to sons named Liam more than a decade before it reached the U.S. Top 10 list. So which star choices of the past year are most likely to inspire the baby names the rest of us choose? First, the influential celebrity baby girl names: Arrow Rhodes ― Jensen and Danneel Ackles blur the line between babies and superheroes. This year, daughter Justice Jay was joined by twins Zeppelin Bram, a boy, and Arrow Rhodes, a girl. Arrow fits with meaningful names like Journey, and proves that dramatic word names can have more appeal. After all, arrows find their targets, making this a mod...

Gulping Gargoyles, J.K. Rowling Looked Incredible At The BAFTAs
Huffington Post - about 1 year
J.K. Rowling took a break from owning trolls on Twitter to owning the BAFTAs red carpet on Sunday.  The author looked straight-up magical in a long-sleeved, fitted maroon gown with a thigh-high slit.  She paired the gown with purple pumps, a sparkly clutch and some serious statement earrings.  “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” took home an award for best production design, but we’d say Rowling herself won the award for best selfie of the night, posing with “Beasts” star Eddie Redmayne and Emma Stone. Fun evening ❤️ pic.twitter.com/kv42C8Qnzh — J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) February 13, 2017 Swoon. So much to obsess over, so little time.

How Fantasy Film Plays On The Black Experience While Erasing Black People
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The charm and wonder of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” begins to crumble when you consider the fact that it’s set in New York City in 1926. It takes place during the height of the Jazz age and the Harlem Renaissance. And yet its cast, led by Eddie Redmayne and Katherine Waterson, is abundantly, blindingly white.  Hollywood’s so-called “diversity” issue has been a trendy, hot-button topic for some time, but the whiteness of “Fantastic Beasts” is indicative a problem specific to fantasy and science fiction film: they’re metaphors for real-life racism and oppression that erase non-white people.  Written by JK Rowling and set in the “Harry Potter” universe, “Fantastic Beasts” follows British wizard Newt Scamander as he navigates the American wizarding world for the first time, attempting to collect a bevy of magical beasts that have escaped from his enchanted briefcase. He does all this, for the most part, in a New York City that is eerily whitewashed ― even in a sce...

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters this weekend, and to promote the film, Eddie Redmayne stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden, where he appears in a hilarious sketch that reimagined his character Newt Scamander contending with the challenges of travel in the modern era. What’s really funny about this is that we’ve actually seen Scamander breeze by the US Customs Service in the trailers for the film, using a setting on his suitcase to hide his creatures from Muggle authorities.

Let's Talk About That Messed-Up Death Penalty In 'Fantastic Beasts' For Just A Minute
Huffington Post - over 1 year
WARNING: Spoilers below for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”  In the world of “Harry Potter,” we know there are punishments for people who don’t follow the letter of the law. Book Three, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, gives us a look at the wizarding prison that’s like Alcatraz with Dementors. Those, of course, are the Dark ghoulish entities used to suck out the souls of the worst prisoners and leave them as empty shells ― a fate worse than death.  The latest film adaptation in the series’ universe, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” released Friday, introduces us to another solemn facet of wizarding life. In the 1920s when the film is set, the American wizarding society has its own punishment for rule-breakers ― and it’s possibly even more deranged than Azkaban’s. Let’s review: When Tina (Katherine Waterston) and Newt (Eddie Redmayne) are sentenced for their suspected role in the mysterious magical destruction happening around New York City, th...
