In the upcoming James Bond film, “Casino Royale,” British actor Daniel Craig will play the lead role of James Bond. This, however, does not sit well with a group of James Bond fans, who have launched a Web site, http://www.craignotbond.com.
A statement on the site said that “EON Productions angered fans around the world when they fired Pierce Brosnan at the height of his popularity as Bond. To add insult to injury, EON cast a short, blond, odd-looking Daniel Craig in the role of Bond.”
The site goes on to ask, “How can a short, blond actor with the rough face of a professional boxer and a penchant for playing killers, cranks, cads, and gigolos pull off the role of a tall, dark, handsome and suave secret agent?”
The angry group of Bond fans have threatened to boycott “Casino Royale” and any other Bond films that Craig will star in.
Though Craig may have a wounded pride from all of these happenings, he does have a big supporter in his predecessor, Pierce Brosnan.
“I think Daniel is a very fine actor. These are rocky waters, and they’re going to get him one way or another, but I think he will have the last laugh at the end of it,” Brosnan said.
Craig has had roles in “Munich” and “The Jacket.” He accepted the role of Bond last October, and filming for the movie began last month in Prague. Last week the producers of the film cast French actress Eva Green as Bond girl Vesper Lynd and Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen as the villain le Chiffre.
“Big Brother,” originally a character in George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty Four, was a supreme ruler that had control over a totalitarian state. This fictional society that Orwell creates, is described as under complete surveillance by authorities, where “Big Brother is Watching you.”
In this years CBS Big Brother 7, not only will Big Brother be watching over the houseguests, but viewers are also granted ruling power over the house as they choose their 6 favorite previous houseguests to compete in the “All-Stars” series. I wonder if this is what Orwell had in mind? Just like propaganda was used to control the population in Orwell’s book, propaganda for houseguests will be coming forth at all angles- people reflecting upon houseguests previous moves in Big Brother forums all over the net, and fans judging them on their past performances by watching past clips, commercials and their promotional videos…. Propaganda for Big Brother Houseguests will be everywhere on t-shirts, flyers, forums, TV…. there is no telling how extreme fans will go… Who will you vote for?
The new Big Brother House will leave nothing to the imagination of the viewer. Surveillance will exist in every corner of the house, along with memorabilia from past shows. The cost of the house… $350,000… with several intense features. The living room is decked out in bright bold colors such as red and orange and a 16 foot tall wall of neon flames will be hard to miss. The wall is said to either “make you want to drink a cocktail or kill somebody, or both”… a perfect melody of what should reflect the mood of this game- Good versus Evil… These veterans better be careful, as this game in this environment is obviously going to be cut throat and HOT HOT HOT! The kitchen continues the theme of flames but also adds a jail feeling with a solid brick kitchen floor. No wonder houseguests in other countries have gone to psychiatric wards after the show… the intensity of this environment should really turn up the heat of emotions, conflicts, and twists. The last feature of the house is several cases full of memorabilia from past seasons- most likely these items will also stir up some good and bad memories.
The house is monitored by cameras in every room- there is nothing you can’t do without being watched- Orwell’s symbolism becomes reality- everyone being watched 24/7. Make sure you become part of Big Brother and get access to live video feeds straight from the house.
Jules Asner, the current cohost of E! News Daily, along with Steve Kmetko, had a golden opportunity to be the first one to host E!’s “Wild On” adventure series. The series was originally titled “Sex on the Riviera.” When Eleanor Mondale left the show, Jules filled in and ended up hosting “Wild On” for a year and a half. The “Wild On” series takes viewers around the world and shows them that there are OTHER extremely wild people besides Americans doing extremely wild stuff. Yes, Brooke Burke DID have a predecessor. Although in an interview, Jules mentioned that she was reluctant to host the “Wild On” adventure series. She wasn’t sure if she wanted to put herself through the dangerous demands of para-sailing, for instance. By the way, her para-sailing adventure was one of her scariest moments. Apparently, Jules was terrified, and rightly so, when the wind kicked up more than usual and Jules was drifting in the air more than what was planned. It also didn’t help matters that the producers took their time bringing her down. Physically, she ended up fine, but her anxiety was obvious because of the expletives were bleeped out and by watching what she was experiencing.
Jules hosting the “Wild On” series was an invaluable link to her current endeavors. She currently cohosts E! News Daily with Steve Kmetko, which she initially and ultimately wanted to do. Along with E! News Daily, she hosts her own show, “Revealed.” Will ANY of our link positions (or stepping stone) positions likely to be as exciting, glamorous or as famous as the E! “Wild On” show? Certainly not! But the point is that Jules was initially reluctant to host “Wild On.” How many positions have we turned down because we’ve been initially reluctant to take a job that we KNOW will lead to a career? As a former fast food manager, I KNEW that I was grossly underpaid, and the stress level for what little I was paid was robbery. I KNEW that I could always say that I had management experience whenever I did a resume or filled out an employment application.
How many of you have that feeling of “what’s the use?” when you were wishing that you could be doing something better? You CAN do something better! Yes. It DOES take an investment in time. There are so MANY companies that need talents YOU have to offer. Everyone has some talent that is valuable to an organization. There are many great websites that offer skills assessment testing. The tests are invaluable for that kind of determination that asks what kind of a career you are suited for. Too many of us settle because I have been one who has settled in the past. I am taking steps to attain my dream career. What you do with YOUR talent is up to you.
Grace Adams-Short became the fourth housemate evicted from Big Brother 7 in yet another no-shock result on Friday night. Grace polled 87.9% of votes in a head-to-head with Nikki Grahame, who survived eviction for two consecutive weeks.
It was such a no-contest that host Davina McCall didn’t even bother with her usual customary pause and instead immediately announced that Grace was evicted.
Both Grace and Nikki were put up for eviction by newcomer Suzie Verrico as the model was the only contestant able to nominate during week four. Grace had take offence to being nominated by Suzie and threw a glass of water over her before she left the house.
With one final hug for Mikey, Grace left the house to a chorus of boos from the eviction night crowd but took it on the chin, laughing and even encouraging the pantomime-esque booing.
When later asked why she performed such a childish act she replied: “Sorry guys, I just couldn’t help myself. She was just sat there like Lady Muck”.
Grace had been favourite to leave all week and had been odds-on well before her nomination was confirmed. One of the reasons she was trading so low was due to the Big Brother twist that only Suzie would be eligible to nominate and she had made her dislike of Grace known publicly before she entered the house.
Grace was as short as 1/2 on Friday 9 June following the chants of “Get Grace Out!” heard clearly during Sam’s eviction, although she had risen to as large as 5/6 by the morning of Monday 11.
Big Brother even gave Grace a chance to earn immunity from nominations when a task was set early in the week. The housemates had to stand still on a podium for as long as possible, with a “mystery prize” awaiting the last person standing. During the task, Grace’s price had reached 2/1 to be evicted fourth as she appeared determined to see the task through.
After nine hours, Glyn and Mikey gave up, leaving Lisa and Grace to draw straws to determine the winner as boredom set in. Lisa drew the longest straw and was rewarded with a prize of being immune from nominations. Grace’s failure to win the immunity saw her price plummet to 1/2 even though nominations were yet to be announced.
When the nominations were announced on Tuesday 13 June, Grace was a short as 1.05 on the betting exchanges, then 1.03 and even as low as 1.02 by Wednesday in what appeared to be a certain eviction. Nikki was available at 33/1 and even 50/1 by comparison.
The bookmakers were also not keen on opening a “How much percentage of the vote will Grace receive” market as at least 85% also looked likely and could even beat the record 86% two-way vote record held by Stuart from Big Brother II and Vanessa from Big Brother V.
Sixty years after it last aired, 'I Love Lucy' is still going strong with viewers of
all ages. As we commemorate her birthday on August 6, here are a few things we’ll
always love about Lucille Ball.
Records show that Lucille Ball was born on Aug. 6, 1911, and died on April 26, 1989, at age 77. But her fans know otherwise. The “Lucy” of I Love Lucy, the classic sitcom that ran from 1951 to 1957 and all but invented one of TV’s most durable forms, has never left us. There she is, daily on the Hallmark Channel; there she is again, streaming on Amazon, Hulu, and CBS.com, the Internet offshoot of her original network; and there she is some more, available in “ultimate” packages of crystalline high-definition Blu-rays. She’s so everywhere that Gillian Anderson, as the goddess “Media,” appeared as Lucy in the first of her many guises on Starz’s fantasy series American Gods. Who Was Lucille Ball?asks one of the newest entries in the popular series of kid’s books. If your kids ask, give them several reasons why she’ll never be forgotten.
She Was Funny…
Mention “Vitameatavegamin” to someone you know and chances are they’ll get the reference to one of the show’s more famous episodes, “Lucy Does a TV Commercial” (1952). “Candy Factory,” from the same year’s “Job Switching” episode, is another of Lucy’s greatest hits, all carefully scripted, never ad-libbed. She was meticulous about her comedy.
…But She Was More Than Funny
Lucy headlined I Love Lucy, The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour (1957-1960), The Lucy Show (1962-1968), Here’s Lucy (1968-1974), and Life with Lucy (1986). Lucille Ball, however, had a more dramatic pedigree at the movies, appearing with Katharine Hepburn and Ginger Rogers in the Broadway adaptation Stage Door (1937), the jungle adventure Five Came Back(1939), and as a selfish, mean-spirited nightclub singer tormenting lovelorn busboy Henry Fonda (a former boyfriend of hers) in her favorite big screen credit, The Big Street (1942). Stuck as the “Queen of the Bs” (B-movies), she and husband Desi Arnaz turned to TV, and, at age 40, she found the enduring fame that had eluded her. Returning to her roots, she played it straight as a homeless person in her last TV movie, 1985’s Stone Pillow.
Ball was the first woman to head a production company, Desilu, and after her 20-year marriage to Arnaz ended in 1960 she bought him out and continued to run it until 1967, when she sold her shares to Gulf+Western and Paramount Studios. The sale netted her $17 million. Desilu’s hits included Star Trek, Mission: Impossible, and The Untouchables. (One notable talent she spotted on the job was the late Robert Osborne, an aspiring actor in the early 1960s. He said she told him that he’d never be happy as a performer and encouraged him to write, and eventually he merged the two talents as Turner Classic Movies’ avuncular host.)
She Pushed the Envelope
Pregnant with their second child, Desi Arnaz, Jr., in 1952, she and Arnaz used their clout to make their “expecting,” as it was called, a plotline. CBS was skittish about her delicate condition, but her real-life pregnancy, depicted over seven episodes, was a smash with viewers. “Lucy is Enceinte” (the word “pregnant” was a no-no, so the French word was used) launched the groundbreaking arc, and an audience of 44 million tuned it to watch the finale, “Lucy Goes to the Hospital.”
She Doesn’t Scare Easily
A 400 lb.-bronze statue of Ball unveiled in her hometown of Celoron, NY, in 2009 startled the public. It also upset its artist, Dave Poulin, who as controversy mounted over the years admitted to The Hollywood Reporterthat his well-intentioned likeness was “by far my most unsettling sculpture, not befitting of Lucy’s beauty or my ability as a sculptor.” By 2015 it was clear that the gargoyle dubbed “Scary Lucy” by the press had to go, and on Ball’s 105th birthday last year another sculptor, Carolyn Palmer, replaced it with her more cheerful handiwork, which she called “New Lucy.” (But “Scary Lucy,” who has her own fan club, remains in the same park, more discreetly displayed.)
She Was Quotable
“I’m not funny. What I am is brave.”
“One of the things I learned the hard way is that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.”
“The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.”
She Keeps on Giving
The National Comedy Center’s long-running Lucille Ball Comedy Festival is being held July 31-August 6, Ball’s birthday, in her native Jamestown, NY. Guests will include Jim Gaffigan, Robert Klein, and Lisa Lampanelli. Last year, the center’s Lucy-Desi Museum Board director, Cindy Aronson, explained her appeal. “I like what Lucie Arnaz said and I’m paraphrasing this but she said ‘my mom made a tonic that never expires. You can drink of it and always feel better.’”
Marilyn Monroe died on August 5, 1962. Fifty-five years later, we remember Marilyn
with a look at some facts that reveal who she was beyond the glare of her celebrity.
Marilyn Monroe died on August 5, 1962, yet she’s remained an unforgettable icon for the past 55 years and counting. However, some aspects of Monroe’s story — such as her reputation as a “dumb blonde” with little to offer beyond sex appeal, and the controversy over whether her death was suicide, an accidental overdose or something more sinister — have often overshadowed everything else. In order to better remember Marilyn, here are six fascinating facts about her life that reveal more of the real woman behind the legend.
Monroe and the Military
In the early years of World War II, Marilyn Monroe was a teenaged housewife named Norma Jeane Dougherty. During the war, she went to work in a factory that made military drones; there, she was discovered by a photographer searching for subjects to inspire the troops. Norma Jeane became a model, and went on to take risqué pin-up photos that would be hugely popular with soldiers in Korea. After she’d transformed into an actress called Marilyn Monroe, army publication Stars & Stripes dubbed her “Miss Cheesecake of 1951” as her film career was taking off.
Monroe demonstrated her gratitude to these fans by interrupting her honeymoon with second husband Joe DiMaggio to visit troops in Korea in February 1954. Her routine, which featured her onstage in a sparkling purple dress, was a huge hit; she did 10 shows in four days, despite freezing temperatures that contributed to her developing pneumonia. Monroe later noted the experience “was the best thing that ever happened to me. I never felt like a star before in my heart.”
Committed to her career
As she started out in the movie industry, Monroe did submit to the casting couch. However, she also worked hard by taking lessons and giving her all to the parts that came her way. To gain experience for a role in B movie Ladies of the Chorus (1948), she performed in a burlesque show under the name “Mona Monroe.” For a working-class role in the film Clash by Night (1952), she observed workers in a cannery (and apparently was offered a job beheading fish).
Monroe certainly didn’t experience overnight success — she cycled through a couple of movie studios, and saw film contracts expire. But she was always prepared to triumph in her career. At one point she told a friend, “If one hundred percent of the movie big shots in Hollywood told me I couldn’t make it to the top, I wouldn’t believe them.”
Stood up to HUAC
In 1956, while involved with Monroe, playwright Arthur Miller was called to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Artists who refused to reveal people who’d been involved with Communist activities could be sent to prison for contempt of Congress, but Miller refused to name names. Throughout this ordeal, Monroe remained committed to Miller — despite studio executives and acting teacher Paula Strasberg warning that her decision could expose Monroe to a public backlash that might destroy her career.
Monroe also agreed to marry Miller, even after he surprised her by announcing their wedding plans in his HUAC testimony. Her public display of loyalty likely helped keep him out of prison (Miller was given a suspended sentence for his contempt conviction in 1957; the conviction went on to be overturned in 1958). However, Monroe’s actions ended up attracting further interest: Support of Miller, combined with a request she’d made to visit the Soviet Union in 1955 (though she didn’t make the trip), prompted the FBI to open a file on her.
The Political Monroe
Her relationship with Miller, which ended in divorce in 1961, wasn’t the only means by which Monroe became politically aware. With Shelley Winters, a one-time roommate, Monroe attended rallies protesting the violation of civil liberties caused by anti-Communist fervor. She was once chastised for reading a “radical” biography of muckraker Lincoln Steffens on a film set. Having been raised to hold more progressive views on race, Monroe also became an advocate for civil rights.
In 1960, Monroe was elected as an alternate delegate to Connecticut’s state Democratic convention (it was a largely honorary position and she didn’t attend the gathering). She also once said to reporters, “My nightmare is the H-bomb. What’s yours?” — making it unsurprising that she got involved with the Hollywood arm of the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy. The FBI, which continued to keep tabs on her, noted in her file in 1962: “Subject’s views are very positively and concisely leftist; however, if she is being actively used by the Communist Party, it is not general knowledge among those working with the movement in Los Angeles.”
Fear of Losing Her Sanity
Monroe had a lifelong fear of losing her sanity, something she’d witnessed in her mother. So when Dr. Marianne Kris brought Monroe — who was taking pills, losing weight and not sleeping — to a locked and padded room in New York’s Payne Whitney Clinic in 1961, the patient reacted badly. Desperate to escape, Monroe took inspiration from one of her early films, broke a window and threatened to cut herself with a piece of glass.
This behavior led to Monroe being restrained and carried to another level of the facility, and her desperation grew. Dr. Kris didn’t visit; Monroe wrote to Lee and Paula Strasberg, her acting teachers, but they weren’t able to obtain her release. Only ex-husband DiMaggio came through, rushing to the facility when he learned what was happening: “I want my wife,” he demanded, “And if you do not release her to me, I will take this place apart — piece of wood, by piece . . . of . . . wood.” Of course, Monroe was no longer DiMaggio’s wife, but the hospital felt the most prudent course was to avoid any potential negative publicity. She was transferred to Columbia University Presbyterian Hospital, where she received treatment in a private room.
Monroe was generous throughout her life, a trait that was apparent even as she spent time in institutions and foster homes. She gave an acting teacher a valuable fur coat and offered money to people in need; shopping companions would often find Monroe had sent them items she’d ostensibly purchased for herself. She was especially generous with children, and offered assistance to child-focused charities like the Milk Fund for Babies and the March of Dimes.
That same generosity continues even after Monroe’s death. Though most of Monroe’s estate went to acting coach Lee Strasberg, a portion was left to Dr. Marianne Kris; in 1980, Kris bequeathed her part of Monroe’s estate to England’s Anna Freud Centre. This organization serves children with mental health issues — given her life experiences, it’s a cause Monroe would likely be proud to support.
If the rumors are true, here are some property listings the president should
Old rumors that Barack and Michelle Obama are looking at property in the golf-mecca of Rancho Mirage, California, have resurfaced among realtors in the Coachella Valley.
Agents who spoke to Mansion Global couldn’t confirm that it’s a done deal, but they did say that a friend of the first family, Michael S. Smith, who lives in town, has looked into properties in Rancho Mirage in recent years. And if the Obamas were going to purchase a new pad they would likely buy it under an alias or LLC for security reasons.
Over the years, the Obamas have taken a number of trips to the desert resort city, where they’ve visited Mr. Smith, an interior designer who has decorated the Oval Office and the White House dining room, and his partner James Costos, the current ambassador to Spain.
There were once reports in 2014 (now debunked) that the Obamas bought a home in the same gated enclave as Mr. Smith, an exclusive neighborhood called Thunderbird Heights. But the rumored seven-bedroom home actually sold to a Nebraska couple, according to property records from Riverside County.
When news swirled two years ago, the White House press office denied the rumors, calling them “false.” Earlier this week, a spokeswoman said the White House had no comment.
A public relations representative for Mr. Smith did not return requests for comment.
If it turns out Mr. Obama is still in the market for a Rancho Mirage home, there’s plenty of grand and secluded properties in the neighborhood. Here’s some eye candy if you haven’t yet made your mind up, Mr. President:
PRICE: $9.75 million
BATHROOMS: 9 bathrooms
SIZE: 5,744 square feet
The listing describes this house as “The Playground of Presidents,” pointing out that many celebrity parties and fundraisers have been held in the main house’s wine room. Like most other homes in the area, there’s a seamless blending of interiors and exteriors, and that exterior happens to include ponds, an infinity pool, gardens, a tennis court and more. The 2.4-acre property has a main home and two guest houses, so the Obamas would have plenty of room to entertain overnight guests who might appreciate a less formal setting than the White House.
PRICE: $12.995 million
BATHROOMS: 6 full bathrooms, four half-baths
SIZE: 15,300 square feet
If the Obamas want to show off a little, this house, the most expensive currently listed for sale in Rancho Mirage would be the way to do it. The Mediterranean-style home, named Casa Bella, likely offers the right amount of privacy a former president and his family, seeing as it’s set in a guard-gated community. Built just four years ago, it’s got an elevator and five-car garage, and sits on resort-like grounds with a firepit, mosaic-tiled pool, and nine-hole putting green.
PRICE: $3.795 million
BATHROOMS: 4 full bathrooms, two half-bathrooms
SIZE: 6,371 square feet
Part of the Mirada Estates gated community, this house has some seriously stunning views of the city, the desert and the valley thanks to zero obstructions. Mr. and Mrs. Obama could enjoy their master bedroom with his/her bathrooms and a gym (we figure the fitness-minded couple would appreciate that). There’s also a covered outdoor entertaining area with misters, space heaters and a kitchen. There’s a pool spa and cascading water features, which the first family will likely appreciate using 12 months a year. That sure beats Washington, D.C. or Chicago in the winter.
