Snoop Dogg wishes he handled Gayle King situation differently, “Two wrongs don’t make no right”

ABC/Kelsey McNeal(LOS ANGELES) — Snoop Dogg wants to take back his harsh words to Gayle King.

The 48-year-old rapper went on a savage rant about the CBS This Morning host after a clip of her interview with WNBA star Lisa Leslie revealed she brought up questions about Kobe Bryant’s 2003 rape case. Now, days later, he issued a sincere apology for how he reacted.

“Two wrongs don’t make no right,” he said in the Instagram video posted on Wednesday. “When you’re wrong you gotta fix it.”

“With that being said: Gayle King, I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off of emotions… me being angry at questions that you asked,” he continued. “Should have handled it way different than that…I was raised better than that.”

Snoop further amended, “So I would like to apologize to you publicly for the language that I used and calling you out of your name and just being disrespectful. I didn’t mean for it to be like that. I was just expressing myself for a friends that wasn’t here to defend himself.”

Snoop ended the apology by extending an invite to talk with King privately. He also took a moment to share some words of wisdom to those that look up to him.

“Anytime you mess up, it’s okay to fix it,” Snoop shared. “It’s okay to man up and say that you’re wrong.”

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LAS VEGAS) — Gwen Stefani isn’t feeling so well these days.

The 50-year-old singer shared the unfortunate news that she would have to cancel some of the upcoming shows for her Just A Girl Las Vegas residency on Tuesday. 

“I am so sad to announce that I am still unwell & will not be able to perform my #JustAGirlVegas show tomorrow, Wednesday, February 12 at @ZapposTheater at @PHVegas,” she tweeted.

Stefani’s residency goes until May 16, 2020 and takes place at the Zappos Theater at the Planet Hollywood resort and casino.

Singer Mýa marries mystery man in Africa

Justin Lloyd / Newspix / Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Mýa is officially a married women and it appears she has been for a few months now.

Sources revealed to TMZ that the singer-songwriter said “I Do” in December 2019 during an ultra private wedding in Seychelles, an island off the coast of East Africa.

Photos of the big day, obtained by TMZ, show Mýa looking absolutely stunning in a gorgeous white gown with a deep plunging neckline as the sandy beach, crystal blue water and clear sky provided a beautiful backdrop.

Now that we know the what, where and when of the wedding, the one remaining question is: Who did she marry?

At the moment, nothing is known about the 40-year-old’s spouse. Perhaps, we’ll have to wait a few more months to find that out, but whoever it is, he’s one lucky fellow.

After long onscreen hiatus, Rick Moranis returning for ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’ sequel

Photo by Theo Wargo/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Although he basically retired from onscreen work to be a full-time dad when his wife died in 1997, Deadline reports Rick Moranis has agreed to return to the big screen for the next Honey, I Shrunk the Kids sequel, called Shrunk.

The sequel will have Frozen‘s Josh Gad playing the son of Moranis’ oddball inventor, Wayne Szalinski.  Like father like son, Gad’s character accidentally shrinks his kids while trying to emulate his dad’s tech.

The 1989 original spawned a sequel called Honey I Blew Up the Kid, and the video-only release Honey We Shrunk Ourselves.

Deadline further reports original Honey I Shrunk The Kids director Joe Johnston will also return this time around for the film, which will be released theatrically by ABC’s parent company, Disney.

Moranis, also the star of Ghostbusters, Spaceballs and Parenthood, to name a few, has mostly performed voiceover work since his decision to be a full-time dad. He even opted out of returning to the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife film, which managed to woo back all the other living original stars, save for Harold Ramis, who died in 2014.

Moranis didn’t appear in the flesh, but recently provided his voice for Dark Helmet, his Darth Vader-like Spaceballs villain, in a tribute episode of The Goldbergs.

Moranis did take part in an eagerly anticipated reunion of the cast of SCTV, the beloved Canadian sketch comedy show that also made stars of Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short and the late John Candy, among others. The resulting documentary from the 2018 special was directed by none other than Martin Scorsese, and will soon appear on Netflix as An Afternoon with SCTV.

Check out Anthony Mackie in new trailer for ‘Altered Carbon’ season 2

ABC/Heidi Gutman(LOS ANGELES) — Marvel movie star Anthony Mackie trades his Falcon wings for other enhanced abilities in the new trailer for the second season of Netflix’s sci-fi series, Altered Carbon.

The conceit of the show, that in the far future a person’s consciousness can be uploaded to a new body — or  sleeve, as the call it — means that Mackie will take over for season one’s Joel Kinnaman.

Like Mackie does, Kinnaman played Takeshi Kovacs [KOH-vahsh], a soldier-turned private eye of sorts. Kinnaman’s Kovacs was itself a new version of the original, a terrorist played by actor Will Yun Lee.

Confused yet? Get this: the snippet of the second season, based on Richard K. Morgan’s book of the same name, shows the season is set 30 years after the first, with Mackie facing off against himself — that is, against Lee, as the original Kovacs.

The second season also has Mackie’s character returning to his home planet and finding his lost love, played by Renée Elise Goldsberry, as well as solving a series of murders. Season 2 also stars Luke Cage veteran Simone Missick and Chris Connor, who plays Poe, Takeshi’s A.I. partner.

Altered Carbon season 2 drops on Netflix this Feb. 27. 

After this, Mackie will be seen in the Disney+ series Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which will debut in August.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson says he’s “so proud” after daughter signs with WWE

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Like father, like daughter.

On Monday, former wrestling champ Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson congratulated his daughter, Simone, for signing a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment.

In an Instagram post, Johnson says he’s so proud to have his daughter carry on their family name, as the first-ever fourth-generation WWE athlete.

“Carry our family name proudly, but your road will always be yours to create, earn & own,” he wrote.  “So proud. Live your dream. Let’s work.”

Johnson’s father, Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson, who recently passed, rose to wrestling fame in the 1980s as part of the first black tag team to win in a WWE championship with his partner Tony Atlas. After retiring in 1991, the elder Johnson began training son Dwayne, who went on to win 17 championships.

Rocky Johnson was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008, alongside his father-in-law and Samoan professional wrestler Peter Maivia, who passed in 1982. 

Simone Johnson says she fell in love with wrestling as a little girl, writing on Instagram, “this will be my life on day, this is for me.  I’m humbled, grateful & ready to work. Let’s do this.”

Oscars boosting big winner ‘Parasite’, as director’s translator eyes her own film future

L-R – Bong, Choi — ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) — Parasite is reaping the benefits of its historic Oscar wins from Sunday, according to Fandango.

The ticket seller reports that as of late Monday, advance ticket sales for Bong Joon-ho’s film — about the members of a poor household scheming a much wealthier family — jumped 443% from last month.

Meanwhile, rentals and purchases of Parasite on its streaming service FandangoNow are up 468 percent over the same period.

The film, which has grossed $36 million in the United States, will expand from 1,060 theaters to over 2,000 theaters this weekend.

And in a related turn of events, Bong Joon Ho’s interpreter, Sharon Choi, tells The Wrap that she’s conceiving her own big-screen bow.

While the Parasite director can speak English, the attractive, well-spoken, and multilingual 25-year-old Korean American has been a constant presence at Bong’s side since the film first stormed the Cannes film festival in 2019.

In fact, the whirlwind of the movie’s global promotional campaign seems to be getting her creative gears turning, she tells the trade. “I want to make a movie about this!” Choi said. “About awards season!”

That campaign netted Bong Joon Ho a mantel full of awards, culminating Sunday night with four Oscar wins, including Best Picture and Best Director.

‘Cinderella’ movie adds James Corden, John Mulaney, Missy Elliott to star-studded cast

ABC/Image Group LA(LOS ANGELES) — If you need another reason to watch the Camila Cabello-led Cinderella remake, wait until you hear who else has been added to the star-studded cast list.

Deadline reports that rapper Missy Elliott, comedian John Mulaney, and late night talk show host James Corden have all signed on to the movie.  Elliott will reportedly play the Town Crier while Mulaney and Corden will star alongside stand-up comic Romesh Ranganathan as Cinderella’s mice sidekicks.  

Cinderella will be Elliott’s third movie. The five-time Grammy winner was previously cast in the films Pootie Tang and Shark Tale – along with being cast as herself for four other projects.

As for Mulaney, he’s still on the animal-kick for his second movie role, as he previously lent his voice to play Spider-Ham in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

On the other hand, Corden — who has starred in several movie musicals from Trolls to Into the Woods — is the one who “cracked the idea” of this reimagined version of Cinderella. Because of this, he will also be given credit as one of the film’s producers.

The movie also added Minnie Driver to play the mother of Cinderella’s love interest, Prince Robert — played by British actor Nicolas Galitzine.

The cast already boasts several A-listers, such as Frozen 2 star Idina Menzel playing opposite of Cabello as the evil stepmother while Pose star Billy Porter will come to the “Havana” singer’s rescue as her fairy godmother — or “Fab G,” as he told ABC Audio.

In addition, Pierce Brosnan will take on the role as the King, while Maddie Baillio and Charlotte Spencer will play Cabello’s wicked stepsisters. 

Cinderella will hit theaters February 5, 2021.  While Disney may have recently come out with a live-action remake of its classic animated film, the fairy tale itself is in the public domain.

Former ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett indicted again by grand jury in Chicago

ABC(CHICAGO) — Former Empire actor Jussie Smollett was indicted Tuesday by a grand jury in Chicago after a special prosecutor re-investigated allegations he falsely reported being the victim of a January 2019 hate-crime attack, officials said.

Smollett, 37, was indicted on six counts related to making four separate false reports to Chicago Police Department officers, claiming he was the victim of a hate crime while “knowing he was not the victim of a crime,” special prosecutor Dan Webb said in a statement released Tuesday afternoon.

Webb said the Office of the Special Prosecutor has “now completed all of its investigative steps regarding Jussie Smollett, and has made the decision to further prosecute Mr. Smollett.”

He said his office has made arrangements with Smollett’s attorneys for the actor to voluntarily appear at an arraignment on February 24 in the Criminal Division of Cook County Circuit Court. Webb’s investigation began August 23, after Cook County Circuit Court Judge Michael Toomin appointed him special prosecutor.

Smollett’s lawyers say the new indictment “raises serious questions about the integrity of the investigation” and allege that “the attempt to re-prosecute Mr. Smollett one year later on the eve of the Cook County State’s Attorney election is clearly all about politics not justice.”

Smollett told police that on Jan. 29, 2019, he was walking on a street near his Chicago apartment around 2 a.m. when he was set upon by two men. The attackers allegedly shouted racist and homophobic slurs before hitting him, pouring “an unknown chemical substance” on him — possibly bleach — and wrapping a rope around his neck, he told detectives.

Police said Smollett’s story of being the victim of an attack began to unravel when police tracked down two men, brothers Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, who they said were seen in a security video near where Smollett claimed he was assaulted and around the same time it supposedly occurred.

The Osundairo brothers claimed, according to police, that Smollett paid them $3,500 to help him orchestrate and stage the crime.

With new charges brought against Smollett, a statement issued by the attorneys for the Osundairo brothers reads: “The Osundairo brothers are aware of the new charges brought against Jussie Smollett today by the grand jury. As stated before, they are fully committed to the public knowing the truth about what occurred on January 29, 2019. The Osundairo brothers will continue to cooperate with that process and they thank the Special Prosecutor’s office for their tireless work in seeing that justice was administered.”

Controversial political thriller ‘The Hunt’ gets March 13 release date

Universal Pictures(LOS ANGELES) — Universal Pictures has set March 13 as the new release date for its violent, R-rated satire The Hunt, along with a new trailer.

The Hunt, starring Hillary Swank, Emma Roberts and GLOW‘s Betty Gilpin, centers on a group of elites who hunt human “deplorables” for sport. It was originally scheduled to hit theaters back in September, but was pulled a month earlier in response to backlash from social media and TV networks following mass shootings in Texas, Ohio and California.

President Donald Trump, while not mentioning the film by name, also attacked the movie in a tweet, accusing it in part, of being “made in order to inflame and cause chaos.”

“It’s probably the most judged movie that’s ever existed that everyone who judged it hadn’t seen,” producer Jason Blum tells The Hollywood Reporter.  “We weren’t going to win the conversation around that and so it was our decision, in holding hands with Universal, to take the movie off the schedule.”

Now however, Universal has decided capitalized on on the controversy, rather than shy away from it. “The most talked-about movie of the year…that no one’s actually seen,” reads a graphic in the trailer.

Screenwriter Damon Lindelof defends the film to THR as “a way to shine a light on a very serious problem in the country, which is that we’re divided. And we think the movie may actually, ironically, bring people together.”
