Can Hollywood’s Predators Be Rehabilitated? Doctors Say Yes, for Some — but There’s No Quick Fix

Can Hollywood’s Predators Be Rehabilitated? Doctors Say Yes, for Some — but There’s No Quick Fix
Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K.: As the cavalcade of Hollywood sexual harassers and assaulters grows, at some point we have to confront the inevitable — Are they scorched earth, or should these people be considered candidates for redemption?

Bryan Cranston poked his head above the fray to suggest they might. “We shouldn’t close it off and say, ‘To hell with [them], rot, and go away from us for the rest of your life,'” he said in a BBC interview. “Let’s leave it open for the few who can make it through that gauntlet of trouble and who have reclaimed their life and their dignity and their respect for others. Maybe it’s possible.”

Comedian Bill Burr told a podcast audience said that C.K. — who admitted to masturbating in front of women without their consent after five accusers spoke to The New York Times — “was 100% wrong,

‘Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond’: Inside the Life of Andy Kaufman and his Spiritual Connection With Jim Carrey

‘Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond’: Inside the Life of Andy Kaufman and his Spiritual Connection With Jim Carrey
For two people whose paths never crossed, Jim Carrey and Andy Kaufman have a fascinatingly strong connection. Some might even call it cosmic.

Carrey has famously idolized Kaufman, whose remarkable career included a stint on the first season of “Saturday Night Live,” the role of Latka Gravas on “Taxi” and a standing invitation to appear on “Late Night With David Letterman.” And because no eccentric career would be complete without a good feud, Kaufman also had a running bone to pick with pro-wrestler Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Audiences first had this connection spelled out for them in 1999, when Carrey portrayed his idol in Universal Pictures’ “Man on the Moon,” a powerful retelling of Kaufman’s life — his rise to stardom in 1970s New York City, his fatal battle with lung cancer in the 1980s, and the veritable circus of highs and lows in between. Kaufman was well known as a

Reconsidering ‘Arrested Development’: Why Jeffrey Tambor and David Cross Could Ruin the Show — Opinion

During a Nov. 15 appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “Arrested Development” star Alia Shawkat revealed that Season 5 of the cult sitcom had just wrapped filming. Unfortunately, that announcement was sandwiched between two dark media scandals featuring members of the show’s ensemble cast.

The first was a series of tweets from comedian Charlyne Yi on Oct. 15, who accused David Cross (who plays eccentric Tobias Fünke) of making racist comments toward her. Cross’ apology was cynical, blaming the incident on playing a “southern redneck character” that she didn’t understand, and lashing out against social media followers who called him out on the incident. Then came two allegations of sexual harassment leveled against Jeffrey Tambor (“Arrested’s” cruel patriarch George Bluth Sr.), one from a former assistant and the other from a fellow “Transparent” actress.

Guest Post: How Film Schools Lead to Pipelines Full of Weinsteins

Guest Post by Mary Celeste Kearney

Want to know how to eliminate sexual harassment in the Hollywood industry? Stop it in film schools. Yes, I realize that not all media professionals attend film schools. But a considerable number do — so many that film and TV production programs at universities like USC, UCLA, and Nyu have been dubbed the primary “pipelines” of talent for the Hollywood industry. Which means that those schools play a significant role in shaping young media professionals and should be considered in any discussion about sexism in U.S. media industries.

Since the early 1980s, several studies of U.S. film schools have noted a persistent trend of gender inequality and sexual harassment among faculty and students. But you don’t have to look to academics to get that information. Consider the numerous comments about such abuses posted to the Shit People Say to Women Directors Tumblr.

Spielberg, Paul Thomas Anderson, and ‘Star Wars’: Why We’re Excited For the Last Few Films of 2017 (Screen Talk Episode 173)

Spielberg, Paul Thomas Anderson, and ‘Star Wars’: Why We’re Excited For the Last Few Films of 2017 (Screen Talk Episode 173)
Every year, we struggle to keep tabs on which movies have yet to screen and how they might shake up the conversations about top 10 lists, awards and the overall quality of cinema over a 12-month period. By summertime, we’ve already got a number of festival favorites and studio highlights to consider, but there’s always a lot more to come from the fall. But even after heavy-hitting festivals like Toronto and Telluride have come and gone, there are usually a few more unknown variables squeezing into the picture before the finish line. This year, that list includes Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread,” and Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” (It remains to be seen whether Ridley Scott’s scrambling to reshoot “All the Money in the World” sans Kevin Spacey will make its December deadline.)

The Old Vic Receives 20 Reports of Kevin Spacey Misconduct

Last month, actor Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of making sexual advances toward him when Rapp was 14. Since then, numerous men have come forward to allege Spacey had sexually harassed or assaulted them over the last several decades. Of those accusations, 20 have come through a confidential complaints process set up by The Old Vic Theatre, where Spacey served as artistic director from 2004-2015. Open to anyone who worked at or was connected with the Old Vic, the investigation has received personal testimonies from 20 individuals, 16 of whom were former staff and all of whom were men, regarding inappropriate incidents with Spacey. According to The Guardian, 14 allegations are so serious that the theatre has recommended complainants report them to the police. Shockingly, the investigation revealed there was a complaint made to management whilst Spacey was working at the theatre, despite the theatre previously claiming otherwise.

From Louis Ck to Al Franken, Crisis PR Experts Tell Us If 7 Disgraced Men’s Careers Are Over
As sexual assault allegations continue to ricochet throughout Hollywood, dozens of accusers have come forward leveling accusations against Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Louis C.K. and, most recently, “Saturday Night Live” alum and Minnesota Sen. Al Franken. Some were fired, others were forced to quit. Weinstein and Spacey have reportedly checked into a treatment facility that specializes in sex addiction, presumably in an effort to rehabilitate their image. But top crisis mangers say the likelihood of that happening will depend on the age of the victims, how the accused first responded to allegations and the severity — and frequency —...

Quentin Tarantino and the Fate of ‘#9’: 6 Questions Studios Should Ask Before Signing Hollywood’s Hottest Free Agent

Quentin Tarantino and the Fate of ‘#9’: 6 Questions Studios Should Ask Before Signing Hollywood’s Hottest Free Agent
What studios are willing to bid to win the newest Tarantino movie is staggering: an upfront agreement to a $100 million production budget, first-dollar returns, and final cut. At a time when even $35 million for an original action film like “Baby Driver” is considered a gamble, this is unprecedented.

The reason is self evident: What Tarantino can do is otherwise missing from American filmmaking. He only directs his own scripts and has never made a sequel, but his films are global events. Tarantino remains one of the only directors whose original films can rake in two-to-one foreign-to-domestic box office returns.
