<![CDATA[Val the Bartender Gives Clinton Advice on 'SNL']]> Mon, 05 Oct 2015 05:10:22 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/214*120/HRC+SNL.png

Miley Cyrus shocked the "Saturday Night Live" audience by walking out fully clothed in a multicolored floral dress and matching cap.

Cyrus kicked off the show's season premiere with a song about some of the most memorable parts of the summer.

Cast members impersonated Walter Palmer, the dentist who killed Cecil the lion, Rachel Dolezal, the woman who said she was black for over 20 years, the donut licked by Ariana Grande, Kim Davis trying to hug a reluctant Pope Francis and of course, pizza rat, during a montage while Cyrus sang a ballad. 

Most political candidates play themselves on "SNL," often for just a cameo in a sketch or to declare the show's famous tag line, "Live from New York — it's Saturday night!" Seldom do they go all-out thespian and play a character in a sketch.

But Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton appeared on the season opener as a wise bartender named Val serving, ahem, Hillary Clinton played by Kate McKinnon.

Set 'em up, and lend an ear to the troubles of a presidential candidate.

In the sketch, McKinnon sat with Cecily Strong, who was playing Clinton's long-time aide Huma Abedin, the wife of embattled former Rep. Anthony Weiner. McKinnon starts to share all her quarrels with Val.

"So, Hillary," Clinton asked McKinnon, "what brings you here tonight?"

"Well, I needed to blow off some steam," McKinnon said. "I've had a hard couple of 22 years."

Asked what she does for a living, McKinnon says in imitation of Clinton's earnest monotone: "First, I am a grandmother. Second, I am a human, entrusted with this one green Earth."

"Oh, I get it, you're a politician," Clinton responded.

When McKinnon asks Val who she is, Clinton deadpanned, "I'm just an ordinary citizen who believes the Keystone pipeline will destroy the environment."

"It took me a long time to get there but yes, I believe that too," McKinnon said.

The skit poked gentle fun at Clinton's slow opposition to the pipeline, her late-arriving support of gay marriage, and her inability to take a vacation. Notably absent was a crack about her private email server, the source of months of criticism from Republican lawmakers and candidates.

Former "SNL" cast member Darrell Hammond also made a surprise cameo playing Bill Clinton.

"Oh my God. They're multiplying!" Hammon exclaimed at the site of two Hillary's before bolting out the bar door.

The two Clinton's closed out the skit by singing Bill Withers' "Lean on Me" before Val the bartender disappeared. 

Strong returned to coax McKinnon from the bar as she recounted her experience with Val the bartender. Strong suggested she may have had too much to drink and imagined everything.

McKinnon finds a tan "business shoe" on the floor, affirming that Val "is real."

<![CDATA[Knightley's Broadway Debut Interrupted by Marriage Proposal]]> Mon, 05 Oct 2015 09:52:07 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/9082_Keira+Knightley+in+rehearsal+%281%29.jpg

An audience member proposed marriage to Keira Knightley during the Oscar-nominee’s first preview performance of “Thérèse Raquin” Thursday night -- and ended up being removed from the theater in handcuffs.

The disturbance began minutes into the performance on Thursday night, when the young man — who many assumed was part of the show — proposed marriage from the railing of the mezzanine, according to reports.

Knightley, who is making her Broadway debut in the Roundabout Theatre Company's adaptation of Émile Zola’s 1867 novel, remained in character as an usher escorted the man back to his seat.

Security eventually escorted the man out of the theater, but not before he hurled a bouquet of flowers onto the stage.

Gabriel Ebert, who stars alongside Knightley, broke character in the scene, kicking the bouquet off the stage and into the wings. The audience responded with applause.

A short break in performance was announced soon thereafter.

“Roundabout takes the safety of their actors and audiences very seriously,” a spokesperson for the show told NBC 4 New York. “Extra security will be added beginning tonight. For obvious reasons, we cannot comment on the exact nature of the additional security measures.”

"Therese Raquin," written in 1867, is about a woman trapped in a loveless marriage who embarks on an illicit affair with a friend of her husband's. The story has been adapted into a 1953 film starring Simone Signoret and another last year starring Elizabeth Olsen.

The show officially opens on Oct. 29 at Studio 54.

<![CDATA[ 'Late Night': Ellen Page Talks National Vanguard Award]]> Fri, 02 Oct 2015 07:18:45 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/NUP_171037_0652.JPG

Ellen Page will receive the National Vanguard Award at the upcoming Human Rights Campaign’s annual dinner on Saturday in Washington.

“It’s a complete honor. I feel incredibly humbled,” Page told “Late Night” host Seth Meyers on Thursday.

The 28-year-old actress came out as gay last year at HRC’s “Time to Thrive” conference. The commission said her bravery and sincerity has helped set a “powerful example for the LGBT and allied community around the world.”

Page said she’s grateful to be associated with the organization.

“They’re an incredible organization,” she said, crediting "many activists who’ve created a world in society where I can be out and live my life and that’s something to not take for granted.”

Page said she would have to give a speech at the dinner, where Vice President Joe Biden will deliver the keynote address.

“Are you nervous about giving a speech?” Meyers asked.

“I think people think actors maybe are more comfortable in those situations. I think I can pretend I’m more comfortable, but I definitely get nervous.”

Meyers gave her some advice on how to surprise the audience, given her humbled demeanor. 

“You should take the mic and say ‘A lot of you said I could never do this,’” he suggested, telling her she should stare down and point to at least one member of the audience.

“Seth, I’m liking it,” she said. “Making a call right now.”

There’s one thing Cindy Crawford wants people to know about modeling: no one ever tells you “to make love to the camera.”

The 49-year-old retired supermodel told “Late Night” host Seth Meyers she’s never had a photographer ever say that to her on a set.

Crawford graced her first cover on the front page of her hometown newspaper, the “DeKalb Nite Weekly." The black and white photo features the former supermodel lounging by a pool in a striped bikini.

“I was in my boyfriend’s parents’ backyard at their pool,” she told Meyers.

“With all due respect, you look great. This looks super shady,” Meyers said.

The photo is part of Crawford’s new book, “Becoming”.

The book takes a look at her life and career. Crawford was discovered at the age of 16 and became a supermodel in the 1990s. Many of the images that made her famous are also featured in the book, including her very first test shoot.

“This is over-styled. It’s not enough to just have a kimono and an umbrella,” she said. “We have to throw a cat in. We have to throw a bracelet in.”

Crawford said it was that photograph that got her signed to Elite, her first modeling agency.

The book also features the iconic “Vogue” cover, with Crawford and four other supermodels from the 1990s: Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Palitz and Christy Turlington.

Crawford’s book is set to be published on Sept. 29.

Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin apologized to Apple CEO Tim Cook after the pair sparred over Steve Jobs' eponymous biopic.

"I hope when he sees the movie he enjoys it as much as I enjoy his products," he said.

Sorkin's concession came after Cook, invited to the "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Sept. 15, spoke warmly about his former boss.

"He was a joy to work with and I love him dearly," he said. "I miss him every day."

Admitting that he hasn’t yet watched "Steve Jobs," Cook also took what seemed like a shot at its filmmakers.

"I think that a lot of people [are] trying to be opportunistic and I hate this," he said. "It’s not a great part of our world."

Cook's comments didn’t go over well with Sorkin.

"Nobody did this movie to get rich," he fired back. "Tim Cook should really see the movie before he decides what it is."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sorkin continued with the zingers, saying: "If you’ve got a factory full of children in China assembling phones for 17 cents an hour, you’ve got a lot of nerve calling some else opportunistic."

The screenwriter has since acknowledged that both he and Cook went "too far." Apple declined to provide a response to Sorkin’s comments.

"Steve Jobs," which is a little over three weeks away from its nationwide release, is based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography and was directed by Danny Boyle of "Slumdog Millionaire" fame. Filmed in the garage of Jobs’ childhood home and other Bay Area locations, it stars Michael Fassbender as the late Apple co-founder and Seth Rogan as Steve Wozniak.

Three product launches – including the NeXT computer, original Mac and iPod — serve as linchpins for "Steve Jobs" and help portray a man who, in some respects, is now larger than life, according to the Internet Movie Database.

Universal Pictures plans to release "Steve Jobs" only in New York and Los Angeles on Oct. 9. It will hit cinemas across the country on Oct. 23.

<![CDATA[Barbie Debuts Zendaya Look-Alike Doll]]> Mon, 28 Sep 2015 17:02:10 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/zendaya-GettyImages-490335612.jpg

Zendaya Coleman's famous Oscar red carpet look has been immortalized in plastic.

Barbie created a look-alike doll for the star of Disney's "K.C. Undercover" in celebration of her encouraging girls to "Raise Their Voices" after her hair was the subject of controversy last winter.

The doll is modeled after Zendaya's red carpet look from the Oscars last February, draped in a replica of the starlet's Vivienne Westwood gown. It also features the starlet's faux dreadlocks, about which an E! personality made some critical comments.

"I feel like she smells like patchouli oil and weed," said E!'s Giuliana Rancic of Zendaya's faux dreadlocks.

Zendaya responded to Rancic with a written post on Instagram, challenging the stereotypes that Rancic was evoking.

"My wearing my hair in locs on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough," wrote Zendaya back in February.

Rancic apologized at the time. 

The reactions to Zendaya's look-alike doll have been positive, though many commenters on Instagram are saddened that it won't be sold in stores.

The actress posted a happy side by side photo of her doll and her Oscar look on her own account.

"When I was little I couldn't find a Barbie that looked like me, my...how times have changed," she wrote in the caption. "Thank you @barbie for this honor and for allowing me to be apart of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty."

Shelby Swain, the hair stylist responsible for Zendaya's dreadlocks at the Oscars, posted a photo of the new doll on her own account, writing that the designers did "an amazing job" emulating the hair style.

Rapper Nicki Minaj, who once had a Barbie look-alike doll made of her, also took to Instagram to congratulate Zendaya on her new doll.

"I love your doll's hair!" wrote Minaj. "I love what it means for other little girls who will identify with it & be empowered."

Barbie announced that they would be creating the doll via Twitter on Sept. 18. The Disney star first showed it off at the ABC Rock 'N Royals Experience this Satuday, according to ABC News.

<![CDATA[Former Child Star Reveals He Is HIV-Positive]]> Mon, 28 Sep 2015 09:04:54 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/DannyPintauroJudithLight.jpg

Former child star Danny Pintauro revealed that he has been HIV-positive for more than a decade in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, NBC News reported.

"I'm HIV-positive. And I have been for 12 years," Pintauro shared on Saturday night's episode of "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" 

Pintauro played Judith Light's precocious son, Jonathan, on the popular Tony Danza sitcom "Who's the Boss?" that aired from 1984 until 1992 on ABC.

Pintauro, 39, told Winfrey he wanted to share his health status "a long time ago," but wasn't ready. He said he decided to share it now to serve as a role model for the gay community.

"It's just a big deal. It's not something that people are talking about right now really," he said.

He shared that he was diagnosed in March 2003 while living in New York. At the time he was "completely clueless" that he had the virus, he said.

Pintauro came out as gay in 1997 after the National Enquirer told him it was planning to out him.

<![CDATA[President Obama, Kanye West at DNC]]> Sat, 26 Sep 2015 17:45:05 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/AP_14379640266.jpg

President Barack Obama and possible future presidential candidate Kanye West are slated to attend the Democratic National Committee event in San Francisco on Oct. 10.

The fundraiser is billed as an afternoon concert will be hosted at the Warfield—a 2,300 seat venue—with tickets selling for $250 to $10,000 each. West is expected to perform songs from his latest album, "Swish."

It should come as no surprise that West is trying to inject himself at events with some of the top politicians of the United States. At the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in August, West announced that he will be running for president in 2020

West's VMAs antics are the reason the president may not be the biggest fan of the rapper. In 2009, head of state called West a "jackass" after he interrupted Taylor Swift from accepting an award for Best Female Video.

"I'll let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time!" were the infamous words West uttered after cutting Swift off. The phrase is still used as jokes in other award shows and online.

Former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, asked West to "wait" to run for president in 2020 because she hopes to being running for her second term at that time, the presidential candidate said on Ellen DeGeneres show. 

Anyone unable to attend the event can donate through the fundraiser website.

The Holy See should be called the Holy Sing: Pope Francis will release a pop-rock album this November.

"Wake Up!" features eleven tracks of excerpts from Francis' famous speeches to various uplifting tracks, Rolling Stone reported. It will be released by Believe Digital.

In the debut song, "Wake Up! Go! Go! Forward!," the pope addresses a South Korean audience in English to musical accompaniment. Other tracks are in Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Pope Francis isn't the first pope to have his words put to music. Album producer and artistic director, Don Giulio Neroni, told Rolling Stone, that he's worked with Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI in the past.

According to Neroni's discography, he worked on "Alma Mater: Music from the Vatican" with Benedict XVI, and "Abba Pater" and "Santo Subito!" with John Paul II.

News of the new album comes as Francis is halfway through his first trip to the United States. The six-day journey features stops in Washington, D.C., New York and Philadelphia. 

"Wake Up!" will be released on Nov. 27, though preorders are available from iTunes.
