    Donald Trump is facing possible expulsion from SAG-AFTRA. Deadline has learned that the union’s national board of directors will meet Tuesday morning in a special session regarding disciplinary action against him, which could lead to his expulsion. The former star of The Apprentice – and soon-to-be former president – has been a member of the union and its forerunners, SAG and AFTRA, since 1989. The two unions merged in 2012. Article XIV of the SAG-AFTRA Constitution states that members may be suspended or expelled for “engaging in actions antagonistic to the interests or integrity of the union.” Expulsion requires a...

    Tom Cruise has shelled out “huge sums” for two high-tech robots to enforce coronavirus safety protocols on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7” – and also administer spot tests to the crew, according to a report. “Tom is so serious about making sure the shoot isn’t shut down that he’s splashed out on these robots as he can’t be everywhere to ensure people are behaving themselves,” a source on the set told The Sun. Shooting resumes this week in the UK before the production heads to Dubai, the source said. The 58-year-old megastar — who recently blew up at two...

    Left-wing Hollywood celebrities are expressing their collective love of Big Brother after Twitter announced that it has permanently banned President Donald Trump. As Breitbart News reported, Twitter kicked the president off its platform late Friday. “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” said Twitter in a statement. Twitter cited two specific tweets that the president posted on Friday, claiming that they violate the company’s “Glorification of Violence” policy, though neither of those tweets remotely encourages violence or...

    In early December, Netflix dropped its highly anticipated musical comedy “The Prom,” starring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells and James Corden asfading Broadway stars who set out to help a lesbian teen take her girlfriend to the prom. The film, helmed by out director Ryan Murphy, got mixed reviews, but some lambasted it as “homophobic” and “offensive” because of the casting of Corden, a straight actor, in what they saw as an “aggressively flamboyant” caricature of a gay man. Erik Anderson, who runs the film site Awards Watch, called “The Prom” a “gorgeous and vibrant production” but tweeted that...

    An explosion shook the largely deserted streets of downtown Nashville early Christmas morning, shattering windows, damaging buildings and wounding three people. Authorities said they believed the blast was intentional. The FBI is leading the investigation. The police came across a suspicious RV parked outside a nearby AT&T building near Second Avenue and Commerce Street before 6 a.m., when initially responding to calls of shots fired in the area, said Metro police spokesperson Don Aaron. There was no immediate evidence of any shooting but officers alerted the department’s bomb squad, which was en route when a “significant explosion” happened about 30...

    Gal Gadot has defended her casting as Cleopatra after she was met with accusations of “whitewashing” the upcoming biopic. Critics have said that an Arab or African actress should play the role of the iconic Egyptian leader instead of the 35-year-old Israeli actress. “First of all, if you want to be true to the facts, then Cleopatra was Macedonian,” Gadot told BBC Arabic. “We were looking for a Macedonian actress that could fit Cleopatra. She wasn’t there. And I was very passionate about Cleopatra.”

    Alyssa Milano says the coronavirus vaccine should be free to all nations and claims 'lives depend on bipartisan cooperation' in an interview with Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen on his new podcast. The liberal firebrand actress, who was a leading figure in the Me Too movement, praised Joe Biden for offering the vaccine free to all Americans but said drug companies should go further – allowing free access internationally. 'I want it to be free for everyone. I don't think that people or countries who are wealthy enough to buy stockpiles of this vaccine should be the ones who have...

    When Disney announced 52 upcoming films and series, Hollywood press, movie fans, and even Wall Street ate up the hype. Here’s an overview of the big takeaways. In recent days, trading on Disney’s stock hit record highs, a short-term indicator the company succeeded with their much-hyped presentation of upcoming films and shows. But the long-term outcome is a more complex story. After all, over the past year, Disney laid off more than 30,000 employees (mostly related to still-closed theme parks) and streaming video platforms have not yet proven the profit potential of theatrical releases. Over a four-hour unveiling that resembled...

    It's confirmed that Wonder Woman 1984 is an anti-Donald Trump movie, which is something I've said about the movie for a while now.And I'm guessing that is the real reason "they" wanted it released in December and didn't want to wait until next June where "they" said the June release would be stale, which is because WW84 is getting released during the election.The confirmation Wonder Woman 1984 is anti-Trump comes from the reviews for the movie that are now out as press screenings were held and the press are allowed to post reviews.In their Wonder Woman 1984 review, Collider offers...

    I haven't met a kid yet that doesn't want to be a superhero. My own daughters love to pretend they are Jedi (I have trained them well) or princesses with magic powers. Superheroes are meant for kids. Yes, there are large numbers of nostalgic adults – my own particular penchant for Star Wars included – that love the adventure and lore of fantastical worlds, but the target market is and always has been children. You might one of a few adults who will buy that $300 Captain America shield replica, but there are 50 million kids who will beg their...

    The Democratic Party obviously enjoys this privilege; look at the protective shield they placed around Joe and Hunter Biden. But Hollywood gets Iron Dome-levels of protection, especially when homophobic rape threats are hurled. Yeah, you read that right. Debra Messing will probably not lose any acting jobs over this, but wishing that President Trump gets raped in prison is pretty unhinged. You all know that. It’s truly despicable, but the irony is thick here. "Let me be clear: I said nothing about LGBTQI/queer LOVE. Rape is an act of violence. Trump has perpetrated violence on hundreds of millions of people....
