Chris Gorham and Becki Newton revived their Ugly Betty characters Henry Grubstick and Amanda Tanen, respectively, for a couple of silly skits while working on the set of their new series, Netflix ’s The Lincoln Lawyer . In a video exclusive to Deadline (above), Amanda has spotted a man who looks identical to Henry, Betty Suarez’s (America Ferrera) boyfriend. While in shock, she calls up her bestie Marc (Michael Urie) to dish about this mysterious guy. “Marc, it’s me. I have something important to tell you,” she tells the person on the line. “Grubstick has a twin who is really hot. I just saw him and I’m going to text you pictures all day. Ok, stay tuned.” Gorham laughs while thinking about making the videos with Newton, who he says is one of the costars he’s seen regularly since his time on Ugly Betty ended. Although the pair only had a few days where their schedules coincided while on The Lincoln Lawyer, they definitely had the past on their minds. … [Read more...] about Christopher Gorham & Becki Newton Revive ‘Ugly Betty’ Characters On ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ Set

UPDATE (22/3/2022): Amanda Bynes is a free woman. Nearly nine years after the Easy A actor was placed in a court-ordered conservatorship that gave her mother decision-making power over her healthcare and security, a judge terminated the guardianship arrangement Tuesday. “The court finds that petitioner has provided facts that the conservatorship is no longer needed or required, therefore the petition for termination is granted,” Ventura County Judge Roger Lund said at the morning hearing that Bynes did not attend. “She’s done everything the court has asked over a long period of time,” the judge said. “She’s excited. She was looking forward to a favorable result, and she got it,” Bynes lawyer, David Esquibias, told Rolling Stone immediately after the hearing. He later released a statement from his client. “Words can’t even describe how I feel. Wonderful news. Following today’s decision by the judge to terminate my conservatorship, I would like to thank my fans for … [Read more...] about Amanda Bynes’ 9-Year Conservatorship Ends: ‘She’s Done Everything the Court Has Asked’
EXCLUSIVE : Rumors are racing around Hollywood that Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey is on his way out after a 12-year run. The most widely rumored version is that Grey has packed up his office and canceled a bunch of meetings. The packing up the office rumor isn’t the case — he is not there, but the lot closed early today because of the Presidents Day holiday weekend. But it certainly seems that something is happening and that Grey’s run as chief is ending. It has been almost impossible to get a straight answer, but I’m told that conversations are going on right now between Grey and Viacom to figure out the future. Does Grey continue? That looks unlikely. Does he move to some emeritus post or one where he puts together projects of his own? That seems more on the mark. Neither Viacom, Paramount or Grey would comment. I’ve heard that Viacom chief Bob Bakish will come to Los Angeles and meet with Grey, probably on Tuesday, so this cloud will hover over … [Read more...] about As Rumors Swirl, Is Brad Grey Long For Paramount?
At an empty beach bar in Corozal, a shaggy town of a few thousand people just minutes from where northern Belize meets Mexico’s share of the Yucatan Peninsula, waves crash into a jagged, rocky breakwater. It’s 9 p.m., the kitchenis about to close, and the only people left are some young, very loud, and very sober American missionaries. Another languid Caribbean day is winding down, but my dinner companion, Moses Michael Levi “ Shyne ” Barrow, has no desire to linger over a meal and conversation. He’s shoveling in his fried fish, rice, and beans faster than an escaped hostage, and brushing off my questions about his remarkable life — from Brooklyn-raised rapper to convicted felon to Orthodox Jewish convert to prominent politician here in the country of his birth — with blunt rejoinders. “I want you to be more specific, rather than just sitting here having a therapy session,” he grumbles, raising his hand to make a drink order. Folks come to Corozal to fish, visit … [Read more...] about Guns, Rhymes, God, and Politics: Shyne’s Epic Fall and Rise
