Mike Tyson On Broadway

 

Mike Tyson may have taken some punches from New York critics, but that isn’t stopping him from taking his Broadway show, “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth,” on the road for a 10-week tour.

The tour, which Mr. Tyson announced on Tuesday on “Jimmy Kimmel  Live,” will hit more than 36 cities, starting on Feb.12 and 13 in Indianapolis, the city where in 1992 Mr. Tyson was convicted of rape.

In the show, which was directed by Spike Lee and ran for 11 days on Broadway at the Longacre Theater in August, Mr. Tyson strongly denies committing the crime, for which he served three years in prison. And on “Jimmy Kimmel,” Mr. Tyson added a comic footnote about an unannounced jailhouse visit from Florence Henderson.

Angus Jones Speaks Out

 
"Two and a Half Men" star Angus T. Jones may have gone on a rant, bashing the show that made him famous (and very rich), but now he's doing something Charlie Sheen never could -- apologizing.
After literally telling his fans to stop watching the sitcom in a video that went viral on Monday, Jones is now singing quite a different tune.
"I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that," the 19-year-old star wrote.

Berry = Drama?

 

Halle Berry's ex-boyfriend claims the actress's fiancé threatened to kill him during a Thanksgiving confrontation that left him with a broken rib, bruised face and under arrest.

Gabriel Aubry's claims are included in court filings that led a judge Monday to grant a restraining order against actor Olivier Martinez, who is engaged to the Oscar-winning actress.

Aubry, 37, was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery after his confrontation with Martinez on Thursday, but he states in the civil court filings that he was not the aggressor and that he was threatened and attacked without provocation. Martinez told police that Aubry had attacked first, the filings state.

A representative for Martinez could not be immediately reached for comment.

MJ Biography Shares...

 

In the exhaustive and at times exhausting new biography “Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson,” journalist Randall Sullivan presents a radical new theory concerning one of the most heavily scrutinized public figures of the last half a century. Namely, that the man revered worldwide as the “King of Pop” could not possibly have been a child molester. The book posits that Jackson resisted sex for all his days and died in 2009 a 50-year-old virgin.

To support that tough-to-swallow and even more difficult-to-prove claim, Sullivan takes a two-pronged approach. He attempts to paint Jackson’s $15-million out-of-court settlement with Jordan Chandler (the 12-year-old who accused the performer of having sexually molested him in 1993) as a textbook extortion case. The payout, Sullivan writes, was the “worst decision” Jackson ever made.

Jackman Reviews In Les Miserable

 

Cheers and a standing ovation this afternoon at the first screening of the film version of “Les Miserables.” Tom Hooper, Oscar winner for The King’s Speech, has made a thrilling, sensational epic of the legendary Broadway show. This now becomes the “Titanic” of this year’s awards season, the epic film to beat. Hugh Jackman is a triumph as Jean Valjean, Anne Hathaway sings the heck out of the film’s big numbers, and Samantha Barks just about steals the film. Russell Crowe makes for a solid Javert. And the many supporting players, especially Aaron Tveit, Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried, are top notch.

Jimi Hendrix Unheard Tracks To Be Released in 2013

 

The upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic starring OutKast's André 3000 may not feature any Hendrix tunes, but fans can count on a new release from the late guitar legend early next year, Rolling Stone reports. People, Hell and Angels, a collection of 12 previously unreleased songs consisting of experimental material recorded in 1968 and 1969, drops March 5, 2013.

Hendrix originally considered these new sounds — which find the guitar hero playing around with horns, keyboards, percussion, and a second guitar — for First Rays of the New Rising Sun, the intended follow-up to 1968's double-album Electric Ladyland. The Seattle-born musician died from drug-related asphyxia in 1970, while working on First Rays. That album eventually saw the light in 1997.

Kevin Clash Resigns From Sesame Street

 

While Hasbro undoubtedly isn't tickled by the controversy surrounding Kevin Clash—the puppeteer behind the squeaky-voiced furry guy who abruptly resigned from Sesame Workshop after being accused of an inappropriate relationship with a minor—the company subsequently issued a statement saying it had no plans to discontinue its line of Elmo toys.

Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash resigns from Sesame Street following second sex accusation.

"Sesame Street and its wonderful characters have been entertaining and educating children and families for more than 40 years," a Hasbro spokeswoman told E! News. "We are confident that Elmo will remain an integral part of Sesame Street and that Sesame Street toys will continue to delight children for years to come."

That means Elmo fans can rest easy. The beloved Muppet monster with the big orange nose will remain on store shelves in a variety of fun-filled forms for preschoolers this holiday shopping season.
