Julia Louis-Dreyfus inks deal with Apple TV Plus

Posted on: January 17th, 2020 by ABC News No Comments

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — The new streaming service Apple TV Plus has scooped up another very funny woman: Julia Louis-Dreyfus. 

The company, which launched with the Golden Globe-nominated The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, has signed a deal with Louis-Dreyfus to develop new projects as both a producer and a star.

Saturday Night Live vet Louis-Dreyfus starred on three successful comedies, Seinfeld, The New Adventures of Old Christine, and Veep, and won Emmys for each show.  She has 11 Emmys in all, winning her sixth consecutive lead actress trophy for Veep in 2017 — a record for any performer for the same role in the same show — and has eight Emmys for acting, tying a record set by Cloris Leachman.

Louis-Dreyfus showed her comedy chops even in her reply about the good news. “I am thrilled about this new partnership with my friends at Apple,” she said in a statement. “Also, many thanks and kudos to my representatives for structuring the deal in such a way that I am paid in AirPods.”

Hillary Clinton gives advice to Democratic voters as she promotes upcoming Hulu doc

Posted on: January 17th, 2020 by ABC News No Comments

Barbara Kinney(LOS ANGELES) — Hillary Clinton is gearing up for the release of her upcoming Hulu documentary, Hillary. The former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate was on hand at the Television Critics Association winter press tour Friday to discuss the four-part documentary, which covers, among other things, the contentious 2016 election.

Being that 2020 is an election year, Clinton had some choice words for the Trump administration, as well as some advice for Democratic voters.

“We’re in a real struggle with a form of politics that is incredibly negative, exclusive, mean-spirited, and it’s going to be up to every voter, not only people who vote in Democratic primaries, to recognize that, you know, this is no ordinary time,” Clinton told reporters. “This is an election that will have such profound impact. So take your vote seriously.”

She advised Democratic voters to “try to vote for the person you think is most likely to win,” saying that, ultimately, that’s what will matter.

“And not just the popular vote, but the Electoral College as we’ve learned,” she added. In 2016, Clinton won the popular vote, but lost to Donald Trump in the electoral count.

“So I want people to take their vote really, really seriously because Lord knows what will happen if we don’t retire the current incumbent and his henchmen, as [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi so well described them yesterday,” Clinton said.

Hillary will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 25, and debut on Hulu March 6.

"I love you, dad": Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson memorializes his father, Rocky

Posted on: January 17th, 2020 by ABC News No Comments

L-R Dwayne Johnson, Lauren Hashian, Ata Johnson, Rocky Johnson/Albert L. Ortega/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has broken his silence over the apparently unexpected death of his father, former wrestler Rocky Johnson. The 75-year-old WWE Hall of Famer’s death was announced on Wednesday.

Under a video of his father in the ring, with a much younger Rock watching from the stands, Dwayne Johnson noted on his Instagram, “You broke color barriers, became a ring legend and trail blazed your way thru this world.  I was the boy sitting in the seats, watching and adoring you, my hero from afar.”

The Rock hints that all wasn’t smooth sailing, calling himself, “The boy you raised with the toughest of love. The intense work. The hard hand. The adoring boy who…grew to become a man realizing you had other deeply complicated sides that needed to be held and understood.”

Johnson continues, “Dad, I wish I had one more shot to tell you, I love you, before you crossed over to the other side. But you were ripped away from me so fast without warning. Gone in an instant and no coming back. Im in pain. But we both know it’s just pain and it’ll pass…”

The lengthy post ends with, “I love you dad and I’ll always be your proud and grateful son. Go rest high.”
