Here’s Exactly What It’ll Cost To Teach You About Diversity, Aaron Sorkin
Huffington Post - 11 months
Dear Aaron Sorkin, During a Writers Guild festival last weekend, you were seemingly flabbergasted to learn about the diversity issues that plague Hollywood, asking, “Are you saying that women and minorities have a more difficult time getting their stuff read than white men and you’re also saying that [white men] get to make mediocre movies and can continue on?” Nailed it. Now, a lot of people are still just trying to wrap their heads around how a man of your stature and accomplishment ― who has been in the film business for 29 years ― could not see that there was a huge lack of diversity in the industry. But you seemed genuinely concerned, which I appreciate, and open to learning more. I would like to help you learn. For the low price of exactly $52,539.38. You’re probably wondering how I derived at this number. Well, Mr. Sorkin, in between the time you were helming “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” and “The Social Network,” I was in college studying radio, television and fi...

Josh Lucas, Terrence Howard and Lake Bell are haunted by the laughable 'Ghost of New Orleans'
LATimes - about 1 year
The type of vehicle that even Nicolas Cage likely would have passed on, “Ghost of New Orleans,” by Serbian director Peter (Predrag) Atonijevic, is a laughably pretentious crime caper-supernatural thriller hybrid that comes up woefully lacking on both fronts. Languishing on the shelf for the past...

Huffington Post - over 1 year
Welp.  The official Twitter account for the Television Academy had an embarrassing mix-up before the Emmy Awards even started.  While covering the red carpet, someone on the Television Academy’s Twitter account tweeted out a picture of Terrence Howard, incorrectly identifying the “Empire” actor as Cuba Gooding Jr. (the old tweet has since been deleted).  Twitter was quick to call out the account’s careless mix-up:  We have our first Twitter fail of the #Emmys pic.twitter.com/3xvrYpALe4 — Joe Bruno (@JoeBrunoWSOC9) September 18, 2016 When the @TelevisionAcad calls you Cuba Gooding Jr. even though you're actually Terrence Howard pic.twitter.com/usCZqqp2fe — Spencer Althouse (@SpencerAlthouse) September 18, 2016 I'm sorry, but how the hell does one confuse Terrence Howard for Cuba Gooding Jr? pic.twitter.com/SnTrusC9mk — Michael Abromowitz (@FootballExpert) September 18, 2016 I just thought I should point out t...

Taraji P. Henson On The Most Important Thing About Cookie Lyon
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Despite the cult-like adoration for her role as Cookie Lyon on “Empire,” Taraji P. Henson wants one thing to be known – Cookie is “not a caricature.” In ELLE's annual Women In TV issue, the Golden Globe award-winner shared which traits were important to avoid in her portrayal of Cookie Lyon -- Lucious Lyon's (played by Terrence Howard) ex-wife and ex-convict. "It was very important to me that [Cookie Lyon] not be sassy and neck-rollin' and eye-bulgin' and attitude all the time," she said. "Everything she does is coming from a place of fighting for her family. That's why she's not a caricature." Henson is featured on one of five covers of Glamour's February issue, along with Julia Louis-Dreyfus (of "Veep"), Priyanka Chopra (of "Quantico"), Olivia Wilde (of "Vinyl"), and Viola Davis (of "How To Get Away With Murder"). The special issue will feature full interviews from each actress discussing various struggles they face in their respective careers -- including sexism in TV. ...
