Actor Shia Labeouf was arrested during a Broadway performance of “Cabaret” on Friday night. And no, it wasn’t part of the show.
He allegedly yelled at the actors, using obscenities, and even lit a cigarette at one point. When security guards and the police tried to remove him, he became aggressive and in colorful terms offered to rearrange their faces and more.
A passerby happened to snap a picture of Shia and some police officers outside the theater. Shia was booked and released later that night, and has to go to court late next month to answer the charges.
We’re getting whispers of a possible defense. He thought he was in a movie theater watching one of his own films. Pretty plausible reason to go a little whacko.
In the meantime, he'll be busy filming his new movie, Train Wreck, with his co-starts - Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan.
As Futbol Fever takes over the US of A, not everyone is excited. Take Dr. Keith Ablow, a panelist on Fox News’s Outnumbered, for instance. He thinks that the World Cup is just a way to distract people from what's really going on in the world. “It’s like Rome. I can see why Obama would enjoy the World Cup…”
This on the heels of conservative columnist Ann Coulter’s manifesto on soccer last week. She thinks it’s all just a liberal conspiracy. “"In soccer, the blame is dispersed and almost no one scores anyway. There are no heroes, no losers, no accountability, and no child's fragile self-esteem is bruised.”
Oh, and she doesn’t like the fact that you can’t use your hands in soccer, as our opposable thumbs are “what sets man apart from the lesser beasts.” Having a soul also factors into that whole setting-man-apart scenario for Ann, which is interesting, since she seems to be missing hers.
This is one of those rare feel-good stories, and it’s definitely worth sharing.
Actress Amy Adams – from American Hustle, Man of Steel, Trouble with the Curve and more – was flying to LA from Detroit last week when she quietly arranged with airline personnel to give her first-class seat to a US serviceman.
She tried to keep the exchange private, but of course, we all know that’s impossible these days. When the media found out, she said she didn’t do it to bring attention to herself – she did it bring attention to the troops.
On Wednesday, Fox News host Neil Cavuto got into a bit of a shouting match with US Representative Michele Bachman during an interview about House Speaker John Boehner’s plans to sue the president over his use of executive actions.
Cavuto thinks the whole thing would be “an enormous waste of effort.” Bachman mostly disagreed, and went further to suggest that Congress should act know and “defund the executive branch.”
That is, take away the funding for one of the three branches of US government. “Cut it. Make it hurt. Because if they don’t have the money, they won’t have power.”
I don’t know if contentious is the right word to describe what followed, but Vince McMahon did call both of them later to try to sign them up for Wrestlemania 31.
There’s talk that Sex and the City’s Sarah Jessica Parker could be returning to television in a show about two investigative reporters who blow the lid off the biggest corruption scandal in Philadelphia’s history.
It’s based on a real-life story chronicled in Busted: A Tale of Corruption And Betrayal In The City of Brotherly Love. Talk is that the show will be produced by the same folks who produced HBO’s recent hit series, True Detective.
No, it won’t have Sarah’s character chasing down Mister Big. As far as we know…
And she won’t be getting any help from her husband, Inspector Gadget. (Sorry, Matthew Broderick, but we haven’t quite forgotten that one yet.)
Like so many of us, he watched the game at work – on board Air Force One, that is, which happened to be about six miles high on the way to St. Paul, Minnesota – to grab some ice cream at the Grand Ole Creamery.
Beyonce and Jay Z kicked off their On The Run Tour in Miami on Wednesday night, performing a total of 42 songs – an amazing number when you think about it.
But what’s getting the most attention – so far, anyway – is the video they’re showing as part of the show. They shared shots of their baby girl, Blue Ivy, and some never-before-seen video snippets from their 2008 wedding.
What it must have been like to live in that ancient time, huh, when there was no Instagram to keep the world up-to-the-minute on prepping for the wedding, being at the wedding, celebrating the wedding, being there after the wedding, prepping for the wedding night, the morning after the wedding night…
