We won’t quibble. Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes you visit a film set and you come up on a tid-bit that you weren’t aware of although it was right in your face all along. For example… LaTonya Richardson-Jackson, presently filming the HBO mini-series “Show Me a Hero,” is the long time wife of Samuel L. Jackson of “Pulp Fiction” and “Avengers” fame.

“Theory of Everything” star Felicity Jones, and her onscreen hubby, Eddie Redmayne, attended a Screen Actors Guild “Career Q&A at NYIT Auditorium on Broadway” yesterday.

It appears Adams – in town to guest host SNL – was booked to appear on Monday mornings Today Show to promote her Christmas Day arrival of her latest film and award contender.
The issue of the Sony hacking was raised and after Adams protested about delving into a subject matter that she had not part in and was a sidebar mention by way of “American Hustle” leading cast salary discrepancies, the producer of the show informed the makeshift diva that “Today is a news organization” that doesn’t allow talent to dictate interviews.
