Is Beyonce Joining NBC’s The Wiz?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

NBC is really on a mission to make The Wiz Live! a star-studded spectacle. On the heels of Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah joining the cast, comes news of an even bigger star possibly heading down the yellow brick road.

E! News reports that Beyonce has been offered the role of Glinda The Good Witch. If the peacock network is somehow able to make this happen, it would be epic. This would be a huge coup for the live production.

Jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater and legendary singer Lena Home played the part in the Broadway and feature film respectively. Queen B would definitely be in fine company.

If Bey isn’t interested or the powers-that-be don’t shell out enough cash, another actress is reportedly being considered for the role. Find out who below.

Recently, John Stamos publicly called out the Olsen twins for comments they made about Netflix’s Full House revival, Fuller House. It appears that the 51-year-old actor was frustrated with Mary-Kate and Ashely from the get-go. At least based on this clip from Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Full House Story.

Unauthorized Stamos voices his concerts to a producer after filming a take with one of the unauthorized Olsen twins. Clearly, the network is taking a salacious approach with their tell-all. I can’t wait. Check out the awkward interaction below made worse by a stripper joke made by unauthorized Bob Saget.

I just can’t with Cole Monahan sometimes. The Tennessee native is too much hotness packaged in just one man. The smile, the hair, the butt, the chest… it’s all too much to handle.

Once again, Charlie By Matthew Zink taps Monahan (I’d like to double tap that) for a new batch of promo pics for the brand’s “Charlie Poster Boy” series. Check out more photos of the sunkissed sex god below.

It’s hard to imagine anyone else besides Reese Witherspoon teaching the world the ‘Bend and Snap,’ but it almost happened. While promoting her new film Vacation, Christina Applegate revealed she received the script after recently wrapping up Married… With Children. Understandably, she was hesitant to play another ditzy blonde.

With the 2001 comedy becoming a huge hit and spawning a sequel and musical adaptation, not surprisingly, she regrets that decision. “What a stupid move that was, right?” she said.

Watch the short interview with Entertainment Tonight below to hear her thoughts on Witherspoon taking over and more.

Who could forget that image of 33 men hoisted up one-by-one in a missile-like escape capsule after being trapped 69 days in a collapsed mine. The harrowing tale suffered by those Chilean miners is being told on the big screen in The 33.

Antonio Banderas headlines the cast as Mario “Super Mario” Sepúlveda, “the face of the public” for the miners, who made daily video logs to assure the public that they were alright. Joining him in the moving film are Lou Diamond Phillips, Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche, Gabriel Byrne and James Brolin.

The 33 heads into theaters on November 13, 2015. Check out the emotional trailer below. I wasn’t expecting to well up, but I did. Having A Great Big World’s “Say Something” in the background as the trailer plays had me almost tearing up. Be sure to have a tissue close by.

The 33 Movie Synopsis

In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out. A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up. Based on the gripping true story of survival—and filmed with the cooperation of the miners, their families and their rescuers—“The 33” reveals the never-before-seen actual events that unfolded, above and below ground, which became nothing less than a worldwide phenomenon.

Though better received by critics, NBC’s Peter Pan Live! failed to match the massive ratings of its predecessor. Say what you will about the legendary wooden acting of Carrie Underwood, but the country superstar delivered the viewers.

While producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are on the hunt for a talented newcomer to play Dorothy, the peacock network has enlisted two marquee names to add star power to their upcoming The Wiz Live! Having established household names to anchor the production are a must. NBC clearly realized their misstep from last year’s disappointing showing. Find out below what Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige are playing in the live production.

Bodybuilder Matt Kroc Comes Out As Transgender

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!
matt-kroc-transgender-weightlifter

World champion powerlifter Matt “Kroc” Kroczaleski came out as transgender in an emotional Facebook post. The 42-year-old athlete has selected to be referred to as Janae Marie Kroc from now on. She describes herself as ‘Transgender/genderfluid Alpha male/girly girl Lesbian in a male body ‘ on Instagram.

There has obviously been a great deal of gossip, rumors and questions about me the past few days. To put them to rest: yes, I am transgender/gender fluid.

First, I would like to be clear that I had planned to wait until my sons were out of high school before I became openly public about this. As that no longer is an option, I will address it now.

I have been very open about this for many years among my family, close friends, and in the powerlifting community, but I realize for many of you this has been a huge shock. This is something that I have been dealing with my entire life and has been extremely difficult for me. In fact, it even drove me to consider suicide at one point.

I never wanted nor asked for this, and fought this as hard as I could for a very long time. I have finally reached a point where I am comfortable with and proud of whom I am, even if a lot of people don’t understand.
I have received an unimaginable amount of support and love in the last twenty four hours from family, friends, fans, and strangers alike and I want to thank every single one of you that have reached out to me. It honestly means more to me that I can possibly express with the written word.

I will share my story in more detail in the coming weeks. In the mean time you can follow me on Instagram @janaemariekroc and my Facebook page can be found under my friends list on facebook under Janae Marie.

In addition to being a world record holding powerlifter, the former Marine was selected for Presidential Security duty serving under President Clinton. Naturally, the reaction online ranges from supportive to less than from his shocked fans. Check out the beautiful Janae below.

A Married… With Children spinoff has long been rumored. The potential series would put focus on the kids, much like what Netflix is doing with their Full House revival.

With Fuller House grabbing headlines, the Children project is gaining steam. David Faustino who played Bud Bundy for 11 seasons would reprise his role if the comedy is picked up. Faustino gave an update on the potential project with E!.
