  • WINNING: Vanity Fair Reveals Silly Nostalgia for Democrat Fantasy of 'The West Wing'

    Newsbusters ^ | September 22, 2019 | P.J. Gladnick
    President Jed Bartlet, you were just too good for us.  It has long been known that liberals hold the television show The West Wing in a high esteem that feeds into their fantasies, especially in times where cold reality has not exactly gone as they (and creator Aaron Sorkin) would have hoped.  And this fantasy will only be intensified since this is the twentieth anniversary of the show's premiere. Another reason for liberals to fantasize ever more deeply in the parallel liberal world of The West Wing is obviously due to the the one they consider to be the intruder in...

    Hollywood in Toto ^ | 31 Oct 2018 | Christian Toto
    Hollywood's biggest stars are back, begging you to support the Blue Wave. But is anyone watching them? We’re days before another major election, so you know what that means. Hollywood stars shooting celebrity PSAs to boost the proverbial “Blue Wave.” Only the results this time around are far from viral. The star-studded “Save the Day” video, dropped weeks before the 2016 presidential election, drew massive views. Today, the number stands at more than 8 million, a figure likely amassed during that year’s campaign. The clip, directed by Joss Whedon, featured some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Scarlett Johansson Robert Downey, Jr....

    Quote from Robert DiNiro from "What I've Learned" in the January issue of Esquire Magazzine: The hardest thing about being famous is that people are always nice to you. You're in a conversation and everybody's agreeing with what you're saying—even if you say something totally crazy. You need people who can tell you what you don't want to hear.

    A group of celebrities created a video to urge Electoral College members to cast their votes for someone other than President-elect Donald Trump on Monday. “You have the position, the authority, and the opportunity to go down in the books as an American hero who changed the course of history,” several celebrities say in turn. Unite for America, a group formed to try to prevent Trump from becoming president, created the video published Wednesday, which features actors Martin Sheen, Debra Messing and Bob Odenkrik, among others. . . . . .Despite media coverage, chatter and protests from a handful of...
  • Martin Sheen to produce documentary saying O.J. Simpson didn’t do it

    With FX’s fairly successful “The People vs. O.J. Simpson” miniseries about to wrap up its 10-episode run and ESPN set to debut an already-hailed five-part documentary about Simpson and the murder trial that drove a nation bonkers, we’ve reached the saturation point of televised O.J. Simpson reminiscences. Or so I thought.

    The opening credits of the new Netflix comedy (maybe comedy-drama) Grace And Frankie lay out the show's high concept using the song "Stuck In The Middle With You" and a set of wedding cake toppers. You see two couples, then two couples with kids, then the husbands kissing, then the abandoned women falling through the broken cake. ....two women with a tense acquaintanceship who find out that their husbands — played by Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen! — have been in love with each other for decades and want to take advantage of the age of same-sex marriage by getting...

    Gerardo Hernandez, a spy for Communist Cuba and the man responsible for the murder of four humanitarian workers (three of whom were American citizens) over international waters, was freed from prison last year by the Obama administration, due in part to the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). This was revealed at a February 6, 2015, celebration of Hernandez’s release, along with two of his fellow Cuban agents (collectively known as the “Cuban 5..

    “We’re all on Daniel’s terms,” Tom (Martin Sheen) says referring to his adventure- seeking son in the new film, “The Way.” Daniel (Emilio Estevez), a born explorer, spends much of his time travelling the world as the story begins. Unfortunately, that leads to a tragic accident and Daniel is killed early on while taking a pilgrimage down the Camino de Santiago (“The Way of Saint James”). Directed and written by Estevez, “The Way” finds Tom travelling overseas to pick up his son’s remains. Daniel had encouraged his father to travel with him but Tom was always too busy. However, when...

    Cardinal Roger Mahony was smiling widely Saturday as he navigated the crush of immigrant rights supporters rallying in downtown Los Angeles, enlivened by the throngs of adoring supporters who kissed his hand and asked to be blessed. "Thank you, Arizona," he said, to no one in particular. "Thank you, Arizona." For the cardinal, the thank-you was two-pronged. Mahony compared Arizona to Nazi Germany after the state passed a strict new law that allows police to check the legal status of anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant. But Mahony said the Arizona legislation might turn out to be a net...

    In 2003, ahead of a U.S. attack on Iraq, a robust anti-war movement in Hollywood included [2] a TV commercial starring Martin Sheen and Sean Penn visiting Baghdad. There were online petitions signed by Ed Asner; letters to President George W. Bush pleading for peace were signed by Matt Damon, Tim Robbins, Barbra Streisand and Alec Baldwin; former M*A*S*H star Mike Farrell fronted multiple press conferences where celebrities denounced war. In interviews, Janeane Garofalo stopped identifying herself as an actor -- she preferred to be called a member of the U.S. anti-war movement. The good news for President Barack Obama...

    Oh, Charlie Sheen. E! News has exclusively confirmed that a weapon "of some sort" was involved in the domestic violence dispute the actor was hauled off to jail for on Friday. The 44-year-old Two and a Half Men star was arrested yesterday morning in Aspen, Colo., and released that night after posting an $8,500 bond. Aspen Police Department spokeswoman Stephanie Dasaro tells E! News the felony menacing charge Sheen is facing would not go into further detail—for the record, they aren't naming the victim, either—other than to say the count does involve "a weapon of some sort."
