Spacey apologizes after actor alleges past sexual advance

first_img FILE – In this Sept. 19, 2017 file photo, Anthony Rapp, cast member in “Star Trek: Discovery,” poses at the premiere of the new television series in Los Angeles. Spacey says he is “beyond horrified” by allegations that he made sexual advances on Rapp when he was a teen boy in 1986. Spacey posted on Twitter that he does not remember the encounter but apologizes for the behavior. Rapp tells BuzzFeed that he was 14 when he attended a party at Spacey’s apartment. (Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP, File) LOS ANGELES | Actor Kevin Spacey said Sunday he is “beyond horrified” by allegations that he made a sexual advance on a teen boy decades ago.The two-time Oscar winner posted on Twitter that he doesn’t remember the encounter. “But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years,” he said. FILE – In this June 11, 2017, file photo, Kevin Spacey arrives at the 71st annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Spacey says he is “beyond horrified” by allegations that he made sexual advances on a teen boy in 1986. Spacey posted on Twitter that he does not remember the encounter but apologizes for the behavior. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File)center_img In an interview with BuzzFeed , actor Anthony Rapp said Spacey befriended him while they both performed on Broadway shows. Rapp was 14 when he attended a party at Spacey’s apartment in 1986, he said. At the end of the night, an inebriated Spacey picked him up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, Rapp said.Rapp said the 26-year-old was holding him down tightly, but he was able to get away and left the apartment.Rapp, who is now 46 and starring in the TV show “Star Trek: Discovery”, said he came forward after allegations against Harvey Weinstein sparked conversations about sexual abuse and harassment in the entertainment industry.Spacey, who is now 58, spoke publicly about his sexual orientation for the first time Sunday on Twitter.“As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women,” he said. “I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man.”Spacey, who has fiercely protected his private life, had never disclosed his sexuality before but said Rapp’s story encouraged him to speak.“I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behavior,” he said.AP writer Michelle A. Monroe in Phoenix contributed to this report.last_img read more

Tina Fey’s ‘Mean Girls,’ ‘SpongeBob’ musical lead Tony nods

first_img 1 of 3 This image released by Boneau/Bryan-Brown shows a performance of “SpongeBob SquarePants,” in New York. The Tony Awards race is dominated by big established brands, including Disney’s “Frozen,” J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” franchise, Tina Fey’s “Mean Girls” and Nickelodeon’s “SpongeBob SquarePants.” The nominations for the 72nd Tony Awards will be announced on Tuesday, May 1. (Joan Marcus/Boneau/Bryan-Brown via AP) NEW YORK | Tina Fey’s musical “Mean Girls,” which she adapted from her much-beloved and oft-quoted 2004 high school comedy movie, and the goofy undersea adaptation from the cartoon “SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical” lead the Tony Award nominations with a dozen nods each.Fey and her husband, Jeff Richmond, who wrote the “Mean Girls” music, both admitted they awaited the announcement with bated breath. “We’re new to this whole Broadway thing and this whole musical thing so it was hard to tell which way everything could swing,” Richmond said.

The Tony Awards race is dominated by big established brands, including Disney’s “Frozen,” J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” franchise, Tina Fey’s “Mean Girls” and Nickelodeon’s “SpongeBob SquarePants.” The nominations for the 72nd Tony Awards will be announced on Tuesday, May 1. (Matthew Murphy/Boneau/Bryan-Brown via AP) A British revival of “Angels in America,” Tony Kushner’s monumental, two-part drama about AIDS, life and love during the 1980s, grabbed 11 nominations — the most for any play this season — 25 years after it first appeared on Broadway. The shimmering, grown-up musical “The Band’s Visit” also earned 11 nods.J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” franchise extended its magical touch to Broadway, with the two-part stage play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” featuring the bespectacled wizard earning 10 nominations, as did a revival of “My Fair Lady.”The best new musical category is filled by “The Band’s Visit,” ”Frozen,” ”Mean Girls” and “SpongeBob SquarePants: The Musical.” Those musicals that failed to make the cut were the Hal Prince revue “Prince of Broadway,” the Jimmy Buffet musical “Escape to Margaritaville” and “Summer,” about disco diva Donna Summer.Taylor Louderman, a veteran of such musicals as “Bring It On The Musical” and “Kinky Boots,” earned her first nomination for playing a high school queen bee who is laid low in “Mean Girls.”“I really haven’t sat back and thought about the young version of me and how she would be freaking out right now,” she said. “I’m from a small town where people don’t really get out and dream big. I just really thought I would never be here.”She faces competition from Lauren Ambrose of “My Fair Lady,” Hailey Kilgore of “Once On This Island,” LaChanze of “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical,” Katrina Lenk from “The Band’s Visit” and Jessie Mueller of “Carousel.”This is Tony-winner Mueller’s fourth nomination but she said it never gets old. “It’s still exciting. It always feels different because every show means something different, and is very personal in its own way. I just keep thinking of all the happy faces I’m going to see tonight when I go to work,” she said.The two-part “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” which picks up 19 years from where Rowling’s last novel left off and portrays Potter and his friends as grown-ups, won nine Olivier Awards in London before coming to the U.S. and bewitching critics and audiences alike. It now will face “The Children,” ”Farinelli and The King,” ”Junk” and “Latin History for Morons” for best new play.Anthony Boyle won a nomination for best featured actor for his work in “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” He played Scorpius Malfoy in London and now on Broadway. He said he’s having a ball with Broadway audiences.“They’re so vocal, it’s like having an extra cast member onstage,” he said. “You hear audible gasps, and sobs. Broadway audiences are incomparable.”Best male acting nominations for a play include Denzel Washington, starring in a revival of Eugene O’Neill’s epic “The Iceman Cometh.” The 2010 Tony winner for “Fences” faces off against Andrew Garfield in “Angels in America,” Tom Hollander of “Travesties,” Jamie Parker of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” and Mark Rylance in “Farinelli and The King.”Amy Schumer, who made her Broadway debut in Steve Martin’s comedy “Meteor Shower,” won a nomination for best actress in a play. Others in the category include Glenda Jackson from “Three Tall Women,” Condola Rashad in “Saint Joan” and Lauren Ridloff in “Children of a Lesser God.”“Carousel,” ”My Fair Lady” and “Once on This Island” make up the best musical revival category, mostly because they’re only eligible nominees.The best play revival category is filled by “Angels in America,” ”Three Tall Women,” ”Lobby Hero,” ”Travesties” and “The Iceman Cometh.”While Broadway veterans like Louderman, Mark Rylance and Condola Rashad all received nominations, some Hollywood stars were shut out, including Uma Thurman and Clive Owen.Bruce Springsteen, whose solo show mixes songs and stories from his best-selling memoir “Born to Run” and has been banking over $2 million each week he’s onstage, will be granted a special, non-competitive Tony, along with John Leguizamo for “Latin History for Morons.”Plenty of nominations don’t necessarily lead to actual wins on Tony night. While “Hamilton” was nominated for 16 awards in 2016 and went on to win 11, just last year “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812” earned a leading 12 nominations but got just two technical awards on the big night.Associated Press writer Jocelyn Noveck contributed to this report.Mark Kennedy is at https://twitter.com/KennedyTwitslast_img read more

first_imgTwenty high schools in and out of Monrovia are expected to participate in the 2016 High School Athletics Championship set for Friday, April 8, at the UL Fendell Campus. It was rescheduled from March 8, to April 8.The championship begins at 8: am and the Liberia Athletics Federation (LAF) said the championship would bring about 200 athletes in the one-day event.LAF Vice President for Technical Affairs, Frederick B. Krah told journalists over the weekend in Monrovia that the Liberian government has not supported the program.He stated that two prominent Liberians have donated two golden trophies and despite the financial challenges the championship will be held. Mr. Krah, who is the Secretary General of the LAF pointed out that they would strive and underwrite the championship to make it successful.
 He said the High School Athletic Championship is to encourage students in athletics and scout talents for clubs and the national teams.
”We will in our weak way solicit funds to stage the High School Athletic Championship on Friday and before then we will name and thank those who will contribute to our efforts,” Krah said.
Meanwhile, Mr. Krah has revealed that the LAF has been invited to the West Africa Regional Athletics Championship in Kenemah, Sierra Leone from April 23 – 24 and 20 athletes have been in camp for a month with seven to be selected for the trip.He indicated that Karder Anders, Liberia’s lone local based who qualified for the Brazil Olympics will be part of the team to Sierra Leone to train at the Kenemah facilities.

GAW needs fresh ideas to win CPL

first_imgDear Editor,Before the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) started, I wrote to the press a letter wherein I posited that the players that were bought during the CPL draft do not have what it takes to win the CPL this year, and my prediction has come to pass.I alluded to the fact that Jason Mohamed and Rayad Emrit should never have been in the squad because of their poor performances over the years, and instead Colin Munro and Chanderpaul Hemraj should have been selected before them.As I said then, those two — along with Chadwick Walton and Cameron Delport — had a very poor tournament, which contributed to the Warriors’ not winning the CPL.Editor, I want to submit, though, that the blame must lie squarely with the Operations Manager, who has been with the Warriors since the inception, and who has been integral in the selection of the teams over the past six years. Over those six years, the Warriors have reached the finals four times and never won, yet the Operations Manager remains at the helm.Something is definitely wrong. For the Warriors to win the CPL next year, there has to be new management with fresh ideas, who must buy players who specialise in all aspects of the game: batting, bowling and fielding. In other words, we must have a more balanced team, with no weak links. And the players who were outstanding during this year’s CPL, such as Luke Ronchi, Shimron Odilon Hetmyer, Sherfane Rutherford, Imran Tahir and Chris Green, should form the core of the team for next year.I would not select Sohail Tanvir for next year, for the simple reason that age has caught up with him. He was very slow in the field and in running between the wickets, and as the commentators mentioned, he seemed to have been burnt out towards the back end of the tournament.Finally, Editor, it is clear we need more Guyanese in the team. Remember the last time we won a T20 tournament, Stanford, the entire team were Guyanese; and looking at many of the players in the Warriors team over the years, many of them are no match for Guyanese players. Hetmyer and Rutherford are classic examples.Yours Faithfully,Imtiaz Baccuslast_img read more

Food brawl lands man in jail

first_imgPatrick Sultan was jailed for 18 months after he pleaded guilty to a charge of unlawful wounding, stemming from a brawl over food.The charge which was read by presiding Magistrate Leron Daly, alleged that the accused on May 25, 2017, at James and Brent Streets, Albouystown, Georgetown, unlawfully and maliciously inflicted grievous bodily harm to the person of Rickson Munroe.Munroe made an appearance before the court with his left arm in a cast as Sultan explained his version of the incident, in a feeble attempt to defend his actions. He argued that he entered “a yard” to get some food when he was accosted by the VC who hit him, thereby provoking him.The defendant related that he then proceeded to grab his chopper and dealt the VC chops to the arm.Magistrate Daly after listening to his version of the incident then passed her ruling, sentencing him to 18 months behind bars to which Sultan responded, “that is reasonable”.last_img read more
