Richard Kiel dead: Jaws from James Bond movies was 74 PDF Print E-mail

kiel-moore-cropped-internal.jpg

Oct. 11, 2007: Actor Roger Moore, right, who played the part of James Bond in seven films, poses with actor Richard Kiel, who played the role of Jaws in "The Spy Who Loved Me," during a ceremony honoring Moore with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles.AP

FRESNO, Calif. –  Richard Kiel, the towering actor best known for portraying steel-toothed villain Jaws in a pair of James Bond films, has died. He was 74.

Kelley Sanchez, director of communications at St. Agnes Medical Center, confirmed Wednesday that Kiel was a patient at the hospital and died. She declined to provide further details.

The 7-foot-2-inch performer famously played the cable-chomping henchman who tussled with Roger Moore's Bond in "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Moonraker." His massive height was attributed to a hormonal condition called acromegaly.

Kiel's other memorable film and TV appearances included roles as towering boss Mr. Larson in "Happy Gilmore," lethal assistant Voltaire in "The Wild, Wild West" and extraterrestrial Kanamit in "The Twilight Zone."

He published an autobiography in 2002 titled "Making It Big in the Movies."

RTX17K7S.jpg

Actress Edie Falco from the television series "Nurse Jackie" arrives at the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, California January 18, 2014.Reuters

“Nurse Jackie’s” upcoming seventh season will be its final round, Showtime Networks president David Nevins announced Wednesday.

The show also tweeted about the news:

One last shot at redemption. Join us in 2015 for the seventh and final season of #NurseJackie. Thanks for the ride! pic.twitter.com/8Uo8mQk3Of

— Nurse Jackie (@SHO_Jackie) September 10, 2014

Since premiering in 2009, the series has been hailed by critics and nabbed several awards, including a Humanitas Prize, Prism Awards for its depiction of substance abuse and five Emmy Awards. Stars Edie Falco and Merritt Wever have taken home Emmys for their performances, making Falco the only actress to win a lead acting award for both comedy and drama.

“It is with great sadness and pride that we and Showtime bid farewell to such an outstanding series like Nurse Jackie, its stellar cast led by the incomparable Edie Falco, brilliant producing team led by Clyde Phillips and Richie Jackson, and the entire Nurse Jackie family of craftspeople and artists that bring this show to rapt audiences year after year,” said Kevin Beggs, chairman of Lionsgate Television, in a statement. “We consider ourselves lucky to have been part of the Nurse Jackie story and look forward to an unforgettable final season”

“Edie is one of our finest actresses,” said Nevins. “We are so honored to have had her on the network. She creates indelible characters and Nurse Jackie Peyton is no exception.  I know this final season will bring her story to a close that will satisfy the ever-growing number of loyal viewers who have been entranced and, at times, appalled by Jackie through the years. I want to thank Edie, the incredible cast of ‘Nurse Jackie’ and Clyde Phillips and Richie Jackson who have led the show to the success that it is today.”

Clyde Phillips serves as showrunner and executive producer for the series, along with exec producers Tom Straw, Richie Jackson, Liz Flahive and Caryn Mandabach.

“Nurse Jackie” also stars Paul Schulze, Dominic Fumusa, Anna Deavere Smith, Stephen Wallem, Betty Gilpin, Ruby Jerins, Mackenzie Aladjem and Peter Facinelli. Tony Shalhoub is set to guest star on the upcoming season, premiering in 2015.

Former WWE star Sean O'Haire dead at 43 PDF Print E-mail

Sean O'Haire

Sean O'Haire was found dead at his South Carolina home on September 9, 2014. He was 43. The cause of death is still under investigation.

(WWE)

Former WWE star Sean O'Haire was found dead in his South Carolina home on Tuesday. He was 43.

An investigator with the Spartanburg, S.C., coroner's office told FOX411 the wrestler's cause of death is still unknown but no foul play is suspected.

TMZ reports that O'Haire was found in his bedroom with a red rope tied around his neck connected to the bedpost. Local police told TMZ his father discovered the body.

O'Haire, whose real name is Sean Haire, was last seen Monday afternoon. His body was discovered at approximately 7:30 a.m. ET Tuesday.

The former wrestler made his WCW debut in 2000. He continued on to the WWE where he was Rowdy Roddy Piper's protégé.

He transitioned into kick boxing and mixed martial arts before becoming a hair stylist.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' wins box office again PDF Print E-mail

chris pratt guardian ap.jpg

Chris Pratt in "Guardians of the Galaxy."The Associated Press

“Guardians of the Galaxy” is the Atlas of the movie world, holding the box office up on its sturdy shoulders during this post-Labor Day slump reports Variety.

The Disney-Marvel tentpole came in first place for the third consecutive weekend while faith-based offering “The Identical” tanked. With the only new wide release misfiring, the weekend after Labor Day looks to be uglier than usual.

ADVERTISEMENT

ADVERTISEMENT

“Guardians,” which is in its sixth frame, made $2.7 million on Friday at the domestic box office and looks to earn an estimated $9.8 million by the end of the traditionally sluggish weekend. If estimates hold and “Guardians” doesn’t gross at least $10 million, it would mark the first time in two years that the box office leader has failed to reel in eight figures.

Other holdovers “If I Stay” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” came in second and third, respectively, while “The Identical” tied with “Lucy” at tenth. It will likely slip to 12th place by the end of the weekend.

After beating out fellow Marvel pic “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” last weekend to become the year’s top domestic film — the first August release to do so in almost 35 years — “Guardians” will likely become by next weekend the first film of 2014 to hit $300 million.

Newcomer “The Identical” earned an estimated $534,000 on Friday. The Christian Elvis musical drama from Freestyle Releasing, the studio behind the surprise hit “God’s Not Dead” ($60.7 million), looks to open to $2 million this weekend.

The pic, which cost a reported $16 million to produce, could be the lowest-grossing opener for a wide release. It’s losing to another Christian film, “When the Game Stands Tall,” which made $1 million on Friday in its third weekend.

“The Identical,” which follows twin brothers separated at birth, failed to tap into the same underserved faith-based audience that praised “Heaven Is for Real” and “Son of God” to the tune of $91.4 million and $59.7 million, respectively.

Warner Bros.’ “If I Stay” was the runner-up on Friday with $1.6 million. It’s on track for a $5.8 million weekend, which would mark a 38% drop.

Like “Guardians,” “TMNT” far exceeded tracking estimates when it opened last month. Paramount’s action comedy made an estimated $1.5 million on Friday on its way to a $5.6 million weekend, which would raise its cume to $174 million. The pic, which launched to $65.6 million in early August, is already the 12th biggest film of the year Stateside.

Fox’s “Let’s Be Cops” came in fourth on Friday with $1.6 million and is on track for a $5.3 million weekend. The buddy cop comedy is showing hold in its fourth weekend and should gross $66.5 million by Sunday.

Pierce Brosnan’s “The November Man” rounded out the top five with $1.2 million. Relativity’s crime thriller stands to earn $4 million by Sunday, which would mark an almost 50% drop.

Crowds gather for private Joan Rivers funeral PDF Print E-mail

joan rivers arms out ap.jpg

July 26, 2009. Joan Rivers greets the audience at the "Comedy Central Roast of Joan Rivers" in Los Angeles.The Associated Press

Howard Stern, Billy Bush and Steve Forbes were among the early arrivals to Joan Rivers' funeral Sunday in New York, a somber and private event for the pioneering comedian held under clear skies.

Dozens of notables were expected to turn out to remember Rivers at Temple Emanu-El on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue. In the hours before the service began, barricades lined several blocks, and a crowd of fans and media stood watch across the street. Rivers was one of Stern's favorite guests, he had previously said; Rivers had endorsed Forbes during his failed 1996 presidential run.

ADVERTISEMENT

ADVERTISEMENT

The event will be more muted than she had hoped. The comedian detailed in her 2012 book "I Hate Everyone ... Starting With Me" that she hoped for "a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action" and "Hollywood all the way." Instead of a rabbi talking, Rivers asked for "Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents" and "a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyonce's."

Rivers, who died Thursday at 81, was a trailblazer for all comics, but especially for women. The raspy-voiced blonde with the brash New York accent was a TV talk show host, actress, fashion critic, and she sold a line of jewelry.

The cause of death is being investigated. Rivers was hospitalized on Aug. 28 after she went into cardiac arrest during a routine procedure at a doctor's office. The New York state health department is investigating the circumstances, and the New York City medical examiner said tests to determine the cause of death were inconclusive.

In her book, Rivers joked that dying of natural causes was boring. "It's the grand finale, act three, the eleven o'clock number — make it count. If you're going to die, die interesting! Is there anything worse than a boring death? I think not."

Her publicist said that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to God's Love, We Deliver; Guide Dogs for the Blind; or Our House.

Kathy Griffin and Howard Stern among the mourners at Joan Rivers funeral PDF Print E-mail

 

NEW YORK –  Howard Stern delivered the eulogy, Broadway singer-actress Audra McDonald sang "Smile" and bagpipers played "New York, New York" at Joan Rivers' funeral Sunday, a star-studded send-off that -- like late comedian herself -- brought together the worlds of Hollywood, theater, fashion and media.

At a funeral befitting a superstar, the New York City Gay Men's Chorus sang Broadway hits before six-time Tony Award-winner McDonald sang her tribute to Rivers, a champion of theater for decades. Tributes and reminiscences were delivered by TV anchor Deborah Norville, close friend Margie Stern, columnist Cindy Adams and Rivers' daughter, Melissa.

Hugh Jackman sang at the end and bagpipers from the New York City Police Department played on the streets as mourners filed out of Temple Emanu-El, many dabbing their eyes.

The funeral program included a page with three classic Rivers' lines printed out: "Can we talk?" "Who are you wearing?" and "Because I'm a funny person."

A legion of notables turned out to remember Rivers, who died Thursday at 81: comedians Kathy Griffin and Whoopi Goldberg; colleague and friend Kelly Osbourne; Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick; and celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz.

Theater stars Bernadette Peters, Alan Cumming and Tommy Tune were there. Record producer Clive Davis was, too. Fashion designers Carolina Herrera and Michael Kors were in attendance. Stars from TV such as Barbara Walters, Geraldo Rivera, Diane Sawyer, Kathie Lee, Hoda Kotb and Andy Cohen. Late night band leader Paul Shaffer. And moguls Barry Diller, Donald Trump and Steve Forbes.

Mourners lined up outside the Fifth Avenue synagogue and waited for their names to be checked against a list before entering. A crowd of media stood watch across the street, and fans from as far away as Australia and England lined the streets.

The comedian detailed in her 2012 book "I Hate Everyone ... Starting With Me" that she hoped for "a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action" and "Hollywood all the way." Instead of a rabbi talking, Rivers asked for "Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents" and "a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyonce's." Indeed, her wishes were so important they were printed in the funeral program.

Rivers was a trailblazer for all comics, but especially for women. The raspy-voiced blonde with the brash New York accent was a TV talk show host, stage, film and TV actress, fashion critic, and she sold a line of jewelry.

The cause of death is being investigated. Rivers was hospitalized on Aug. 28 after she went into cardiac arrest during a routine procedure at a doctor's office. The New York state health department is investigating the circumstances, and the New York City medical examiner said tests to determine the cause of death were inconclusive.

Celeb Nude Leaks -- Reddit Bans the Fappening ... We're Trying to Stop This! PDF Print E-mail

breaking news

0907-kate-upton-j-law-tmz-getty-01Reddit is stepping up its game to stop hackers from leaking stolen nude celebrity photos -- by shut down the area of the site where the pics were posted.

Reddit vaguely says the pics violate its policies.  It seems like its referring to the alleged underage photos of McKayla Maroney that were posted on the Fappening ... as well as illegally obtained naked pics of celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Victoria Justice.

The side admins say, "While current US law does not prohibit linking to stolen materials, we deplore the theft of these images and we do not condone their widespread distribution."

For what it's worth ... the guy who runs the Fappening says he's not happy about Reddit's decision.

Atlanta Hawks Owner Bruce Levenson -- I Pulled a Donald Sterling ... Outs Himself for Super Racist Email PDF Print E-mail

breaking news

0907-bruce-levenson-getty-01Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson abruptly announced he's selling the team because he's guilty of sending an email so racist ... it would make Donald Sterling cringe.

Levenson admits he sent the email to team execs back in 2012, urging them to get more suburban white fans at games. He then laid out all the problems with the current fan base, listing the following:

- it's 70 pct black
- the cheerleaders are black
- the music is hip hop
- at the bars it's 90 pct black
- there are few fathers and sons at the games
- the concerts [after games] are either hip hop or gospel

Levenson continued in the email ... "My theory is that the black crowd scared away the whites and there are simply not enough affluent black fans to build a significant  season ticket base." He also complained that he's told team execs, "I want some white cheerleaders ... I have even bitched that the kiss cam is too black."

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says Levenson copped to the email in July -- about 2 months after Donald Sterling was banned -- and immediately informed the league he would sell the team.

Levenson apologized to fans in a statement, saying ... "If you're angry about what I wrote, you should be. I'm angry at myself too."
