These A-List Stars Have Trouble Getting New Roles

We might love them on screen, but as it turns out, they are a hot potato behind the scenes, and you’d be surprised to find out how much and why these stars have a hard time finding a new role. So… let’s see.

Chris Hemsworth

If it seems as though Chris Hemsworth hasn’t been in the spotlight lately, you would be right. Unlike the other actors on this list, however, the reason isn’t due to any fault of the actor but due to a contract, he signed to play the superhero Thor in a multi-year contract.

Due to the Marvel cinematic franchise churning out a film or two every year, the actor has been busy portraying the Norse god on-screen since 2011. As such the Australian actor has had little time to branch out. Adding to this is the fact the actor deciding to relocate back to his native land, compounding the difficulty in finding roles with studios located in the United States.

UPDATED: The Winners At The 70th Emmy Awards

UPDATE 18/09/2018: The list of winners at the 2018 Emmy Awards has now been added to the end of this post.

Predictions abound for the 70th iteration of the Emmy’s with several of television’s most celebrated shows set for a big night at the Television Academy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, September 17, 2018.

“This year’s nominations continue to represent increased diversity and inclusion in front of the camera,” said Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington. “And, there is a wealth of new and returning programs that reflect so many of today’s critical issues.”

Among all shows up for awards, Game Of Thrones has the most nominations (22) in all categories, followed by Saturday Night Live (21) and Westworld (21). Leading the nominations in totals by platform are Netflix (112), HBO (108) and NBC (78). With over a hundred awards on offer, we’ll take our pics among the contenders for the Drama Series category’s main awards.

Outstanding Drama Series

The award for the best drama series seems like a two horse raise between downtrodden handmaidens and the dragon-riding royalty of Westeros. With Game of Thrones famously absent from last year’s awards, the Handmaid’s Tale swooped in to collect the gong. This year, the two go head-to-head. Critics are predicting a win for the Hulu drama to repeat the feat again this year.

Lead Actor In A Drama Series

It looks to be a threepeat for actor Sterling K. Brown. The This Is Us star comes in having won consecutive awards for The People v. O.J. Simpson and This Is Us. With his fictional father, Ron Cephas Jones, winning the Guest-Actor award in a stunning upset this past weekend, it means voters have been paying attention to the storyline. Realistically, Brown’s main threat is his co-star and fictional adopted father, Milo Ventimiglia, who perhaps had a more emphatic role this past season.

Lead Actress In A Drama Series

Likewise, except a repeat for Elisabeth Moss to win this year’s gong. The Handmaid’s Tale star’s compelling portrayal in the series seems impossible to beat, with the show’s success due in large part to the star’s series-carrying performance. Having been overlooked for her past work on Mad Men, Moss is a shoe-in for this year’s award once again.

Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

Last year’s winner, John Lithgow for The Crown, isn’t in the running this year, which leaves the field wide open. Both Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage can consider themselves contenders for their roles on Game of Thrones. Dinklage already having two previous wins and Coster-Waldau being tasked with the season’s most poignant moments. However, Matt Smith for his perfectly petty and occasionally sympathetic portrayal as Prince Philip in The Crown is apparently tipped to win.

Supporting Actress In A Drama Series

The Handmaid’s Tale has three nominees this award, making up it a favorite to win this award. Interestingly the show has yet to lose an acting category in which it has been nominated. The real question is not if but who among its nominees will win. Samira Wiley was awarded this year’s Guest Actress award, just as Alexis Bedel, who won last year’s Guest Actress prize, is now a season regular and up for a Supporting Actress award. Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski who also star in the show are nominated. Dowd might have been the early favorite, however, as the season progressed it was Strahovski who really stole the show, having previously worked on both Chuck and Dexter.

As for the Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series awards, there’s little to separate between Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, and This Is Us.

“It’s been another record-breaking year with more than 9,100 entries in 122 unique categories for the initial nomination round of voting,” said Washington. “The continued growth of the industry has provided opportunities for acclaimed new programs to emerge while allowing last season’s break-through programs to thrive.”

Henry Cavill Reportedly Out As Superman

Bad news Henry Cavill fans: The British actor’s tenure as the Man of Steel has reportedly come to an end.

It was reported by The Hollywood Reporter that Henry Cavill would be leaving his role as Superman after talks with the Warner Bros. broke down. The actor has played the iconic DC comics character in three films of the cinematic universe, Man of Steel (2013), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), and Justice League (2017). The actor was expected to appear in a cameo role in the upcoming superhero movie Shazam!, however, scheduling conflicts prevented this from happening.

The same source told The Hollywood Reporter, “Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors.” Warner Bros. is eager to “reset” the under-performing franchise, according to the source.

The actor has since responded cryptically on his Instagram page in a video post showing him staring with a stony expression at the camera while lifting a Superman figure into view and then moving it back down out of the shot. “The Blue Danube” waltz, sung by barking dogs, plays over the short clip with Cavill sporting a “Krypton Lifting Team” T-shirt.

Today was exciting #Superman

A post shared by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill) on

A representative for Warner soon released a statement stating that no decision had been made yet. “While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged,” they said.

Cavill’s manager, Dany Garcia, also responded to the news through Twitter, writing, “Be peaceful, the cape is still in his closet. Warner has been and continues to be our partners as they evolve the DC Universe.”

The initial report claimed that the breakdown in talks was in part due to the studio’s plan to focus on Supergirl rather than Superman, with the former’s origin story featuring the last son of Krypton as an infant due to the timeline of the story. This suggests Cavill would not have made an appearance in any Supergirl film.

If the rumors do stack up and Cavill leaves the role, it would mark the second high-profile exit from the Warner Bros. franchise after Ben Affleck vacated his role as Batman. The rest of the Justice League will reprise their roles, however. Gal Gadot will return for Wonder Woman 1984, set for theaters in November 2019; Jason Momoa will headline a solo Aquaman movie this December; and Ezra Miller is set to star in a Flash movie, which is due to shoot in early 2019.

Cavill recently starred as the antagonist in Mission: Impossible – Fallout opposite Tom Cruise. He has also been cast as Geralt of Rivia in big-budget Netflix television series The Witcher (an adaptation of the cult fantasy books and video game series).

Deadline reports that Warner Bros. “has been mulling a completely different direction with its Superman canon for some time.” The studio is reportedly considering a future in which Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan could play the famous Kryptonian. Actress Kat Graham, of The Vampire Diaries fame, added her support telling TMZ it’s time for Kal-El to be played by a black, Latino or Asian actor.

Billboards In Space: NASA Explores Placing Ads On Rockets

In the near future, you may conceivably see a spacecraft to Mars featuring a Mars chocolate bar logo plastered across its wings.

NASA recently called for a new committee of the NASA Advisory Council to explore the idea of branding and endorsement opportunities. Despite current regulations and laws seemingly prohibiting such activities, NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine recently posed the question, “Is it possible for NASA to offset some of its costs by selling the naming rights to its spacecraft?” he asked during to a meeting of a council that advises NASA. “Or the naming rights to its rockets? I’m telling you, there is interest in that right now.”

As much as news of seeing astronauts in Coca-Cola commercials, or NASA’s Mars rover rebranded as Jordan’s brought to you by Nike, it will take some time before a decision can be made. “The question is: is it possible?” Bridenstine mentioned in a video broadcast on NASA TV and which question has been debated in press accounts since then. “The answer is: I don’t know, but we want somebody to give us advice on whether it is.”

Bridenstine also stated he would like to see astronauts participate in marketing and endorsement opportunities as well as transforming rockets into corporate billboards similar to ads on NASCAR racing cars. “I’d like to see kids growing up, instead of maybe wanting to be like a professional sports star, I’d like to see them grow up wanting to be a NASA astronaut or a NASA scientist,” he said. “I’d like to see, maybe one day, NASA astronauts on the cover of a cereal box, embedded into the American culture.”

The White House recently announced the establishment of a National Space Council last year, led by Vice President Mike Pence, and wants to see mankind return to the moon. However, the administration’s budget proposals so far suggest financing will remain flat through 2023, with wishes to end direct funding for the International Space Station and turn over its operations to a private entity. Bridenstine also said he wants the new committee to explore flying tourists to the International Space Station alongside government astronauts.

The committee, headed by Maxar Technologies’ Mike Gold, will pursue ways NASA could work with advertisers to brand its spacecraft and rockets as well as investigate how astronauts might engage in endorsements and media opportunities — both on and off Earth. He proposes that by allowing astronauts to do advertisements like appearing on cereal boxes, such endorsements will help “enhance the exposure of space activities in the popular culture,” according to Gold. One of Bridenstine’s goals is to offset the costs of NASA missions by selling the naming rights of its hardware to private companies.

Among the next steps are branding and advertising that future commercial space stations might tap into Bridenstine said. “This is yet another opportunity to prove out a market.” The newly appointed committee is likely to make recommendations at the next quarterly meeting of the NASA advisory council, he said.

Google’s New “Touring Bird” App Is A Traveler’s Dream

Google’s Touring Bird website is a nifty new travel tool designed to help vacationers easily find activities in top travel destinations according to their interests, budget, and time.

Planning a trip is a key component of any successful vacation. Hours spent on the web reading reviews, scrolling through photos, and comparing prices are familiar to every traveler. “Traveling to new places is fun and exciting — but for a lot of people, planning what to do once you’re there is not. It often involves hours of research, reading dozens of travel guides and blogs across the web, sifting through reviews, compiling your own lists, comparing prices and offerings, and asking friends and family for recommendations,” Google’s Touring Bird team wrote.

Thanks to their new web application, planning a trip has never been easier. “Touring Bird helps travelers explore, compare, and book tours, tickets, and activities from multiple providers in top destinations around the world—all in a single place,” Google says.

Touring Bird is accessible on both desktop and mobile, and offers the best price for each selected activity or activities, including options to bundle activities to save money. The website includes a built-in bookmarking and sharing feature which allows you to save your favorites to a list.

The website displays a mixture of things to experience for each city divided into categories. These include:

  • Top Sights: Most popular Prague-area attractions.
  • Tours & Activities: Guided tours, tickets & travel experiences.
  • Local Tips: Recommendations from locals & travel experts.
  • Free Tours: Guided tours on a pay-what-you-wish basis.
  • and the ability to explore the city by interest.

The interest category allows visitors to filter the city’s attractions, such as helping them find essential experiences, track hidden spots and locals’ picks, discover drinking and dining (and cooking) experiences, learn about the kid-friendly activities on offer, locate the arts and architecture hub, as well as pinpoint the most Instagrammable sites and selfie-worthy spots. “A leisure trip to a destination is usually between three to eight days,” Lax Poojary, who leads the Touring Bird team said. “People want to do top activities and attractions in the first few days, but then they want to do more immersive things. We wanted to build a one-stop shop.”

An added bonus of the website is that it also serves as a useful tool to assist in locating trusted ticket booking options for when tourists are ready to start checking out attractions. Each entry on the website has a price included, with the ability to filter by price according to your budget, as well as the refund options available. The website also gives easy access to every tour and attraction’s cancellation policy terms, which is a huge welcome to travelers who typically find this difficult to locate as this is often buried in the fine print, and sometimes requires a phone call to understand.

The website currently lists attractions, activities, and tips for 20 of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, with plans to increase the number in the future. “We’re working hard to bring Touring Bird to more cities—please stay tuned!” says the website. The cities currently covered are Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Miami, New Delhi, New York, Orlando, Paris, Prague, Rome, San Diego, San Francisco, Toronto, and Washington, D.C.

What It’s Like To Work For Elon Musk

70-hour work weeks and tasked with doing the impossible, these are some of the things employees revealed about working at Tesla under their cult-like enigmatic leader Elon Musk.

Business Insider spoke with 42 Tesla employees about what it is like to work at one of the world’s most ambitious companies. The company’s CEO, Elon Musk, is considered a visionary, as well as unpredictably demanding according to employees. Long hours and an intense work environment which they call “the Tesla life” are part and parcel of working for Tesla. Some say the attitude of worship some of their colleagues have toward Musk, is something like a “cult”.

The 5.3-million-square-foot Fremont factory, where Tesla’s all-electric cars are made is one of the world’s most advanced automotive production facilities, employing around 10,000 people. However, it is also home to the unfolding drama as Tesla struggles to meet demands for its vehicles as investors grow skeptical with each passing day.

However, for the famous CEO, it is his personal kingdom where boundaries of home and work are blurred. The method to his deepening madness never seems clear. “Elon basically does what he wants, whenever he wants,” says an unnamed employee. At 47, Musk is at the forefront of an electric revolution as he uses his force of will, grit, and stubbornness to make this vision a reality. Musk’s loyal following of employees believe if he asks them to do the impossible, they can do it. Some liken Musk to a drug.

“My favorite thing about the job is to take that thing that seemed impossible and blow it up,” said Marco Batra, a six-year Tesla veteran and the global sales delivery operations manager. Tesla employees said they love the company’s mission of making beautiful electric cars and solar products, supposedly healing the earth, and disrupting the old world along the way. To many, it’s a noble cause that inspires them to give it their all.

“This is the future,” said Branton Phillips, a material handler for Tesla Production Control at the Fremont facility. “I like the whole image, what we’re doing, the mission. We’re making history.” This is exactly the type of “startup culture” many larger established corporations strive for.

However, it may also be Tesla’s biggest weakness. The scrappy, feel-good company, built in Musk’s image, also bears many of his flaws — a place where long hours, chaos, callousness, and contradictions can grind workers down, many employees reported. Tesla burned through $3.4 billion in 2017, and another $1.05 billion in the first quarter of this year, while posing record loses. Many fear the rate of spending will result in the company running out of money by year’s end.

“There’s a big cult-like following for Elon,” said one software engineer said. “[At] no company have I worked for, in our quarterly meetings, do you clap when a CEO walks into the podium. So that’s just something that people do at Tesla.” At 6-foot-2, with broad shoulders, Musk is an imposing man. “I ran into him a couple times. He’s like this force field,” a former internal communications employee said. “You could almost see the air parting.”

Employees describe Musk as everything from aloof and intimidating to friendly and emotional. Discussions with him are littered with f-bombs, and yet he is also known to give production workers bear hugs when the company reaches a milestone. Musk works so many hours at Tesla’s 24/7 production world that virtually everyone interviewed had a story about finding him with a pillow and blanket asleep somewhere, including the factory floor, under a desk, and in a conference room. Musk has admitted he even uses the sleep-aiding machine Ambien to get rest sometimes.

But Musk’s deadlines can also seem random, even mean-spirited, to those tasked with achieving them. “He’d order a project and we’d say, ‘We need 10 weeks,’ and he’d say, ‘You get six.’ And then two weeks later, ‘We need it two weeks earlier than that,’ so you end up with four, just to hit a number. It’s an impossible workload. They’re burning people out like crazy,” one mechanical engineer said.

Tesla’s work-life balance scored 2.6 out of 5, according to Glassdoor user reviews, which was far lower than other car companies. The average employee tenure at Tesla is 2.1 years, which is at the low end when compared to other tech companies such as Apple, where the average tenure is five years, based on data gathered by LinkedIn. “You’re not there to be creative. You’re there to fulfill his mission,” a software engineer said. “If you don’t understand that and you’re talking about your feelings, you’re probably going to get fired.”

A former VP who reported to Musk said, “He is terrible, terrible at execution and terrible at management. The entire management structure at Tesla is impotent and terrible. There are exceptions, but, on average, most managers at Tesla have no idea what they’re doing.”

Now, as pressure mounts, Musk’s management style is under scrutiny, and a growing number of employees and investors are wondering whether it’s time for the company to grow up. When asked about Musk’s management style, Tesla pointed to its mission. “What Tesla is doing is incredibly difficult, as evidenced by the fact that Ford is the only other US car company to never have gone bankrupt,” a Tesla representative said.

Final Doom 2 Secret Discovered After 24 Years

After 24 years of blasting demons, one fan has unlocked the final secret of the 1994 video game, Doom II.

Doom II: Hell on Earth, originally released on MS-DOS on 30 September 1994,  followed up to its namesake predecessor Doom to become one of the most successful games of the decade. The highly rated sequel helped establish the long-lasting legacy of the popular video game series. The second installment takes the protagonist, the aptly named “Doomguy”, from Mars to the apocalyptic regions of Earth. Doom II was bigger and bloodier than the original and remains one of the progenitors of the first person shooter genre.

For the first time in game’s history, gamers can celebrate 100% completion of the game without any mods or cheats all thanks to YouTuber Zero Master. John Romero, co-creator of the Doom series, confirmed through a Tweet that the door to the game’s final secret had indeed finally been unlocked. He offered his congratulations and then explained how it can be achieved.

Since the game’s debut all those years ago, fans the last of the 10 secret areas found in the game’s Industrial Zone was a hot topic among fans. Although fans were able to uncover the secret, activating it proved challenging without using cheat codes. According to both Zero Master and Romero, in order to activate the final secret, Doomguy needs to be pushed into the teleporter by an enemy. As the video demonstrates, Zero Master managed to activate the secret following a cat and mouse chase as they used a Pain Elemental enemy to nudge themselves to the teleporter.

Many Doom experts had long considered the secret to be a glitch in the game’s code as nobody was able to unlock it for so long. Romero, however, clearly pointed out that he had always known how to unlock the final piece of this head-scratching puzzle in the game’s 15th level and simply waited until someone figured it out.

In an age where gamers are used to exploring every nook and cranny of a video game in order to collect every last trophy and easter egg, waiting over two decades to find a game’s last secret is truly a noteworthy feat. Whether by chance or by process of elimination, Zero Master can proudly claim the title of being the person to ever complete Doom II as it was intended.

Hilarious Signs Found Only in Texas

Texas is so big, its people often refer to the rest of the United States as “that sketchy place outside of Texas.” Proudly known as the Lone Star State, Texas loves to immortalize its former status as an independent republic as well as its historic struggle for independence from Mexico. Bigger than many countries, it would be the 39th largest country by land mass if it were a nation.

Therefore it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Texans have their own dandy sense of humor. Possessing a culture larger than life, Texans are renown for their good old-fashioned manners and their smiles as bright as day. There’s a reason the origin of Texas’s name comes from the word “taysha”, which means “friends” in Native American Caddo.

Let’s take a look to see the most charming Texas signs ever displayed.

That’s One Cold Beer

Well then, hell must’ve frozen over. Why not bury your sorrows with a cold one mulling over that heartless, good for nothing, ex of yours who you’re happy to see the back of. If the beer is as the sign says, we better quit talkin’ and start drinkin’.

Lucy Hale & Selena Gomez

Star of “Pretty Little Liars”, actress Lucy Hale has certainly been on the receiving end of having the (unfortunate) luck of looking similar to singer Selena Gomez. While Gomez was dating Justin Bieber, a person from the public tried stealing Hale’s cellphone hoping to call Bieber.

In fact, while Gomez was appearing on “Wizards of Waverly Place”, fans would reportedly get the two mixed up all the time. Another time a lady at an airport took a picture with Hale and the two got talking. Hale realized the lady thought she was Gomez, however, she didn’t utter a word as she didn’t want to “crush her dreams”.

Recently Hale was seen in the television series “Life Sentence” and is currently working on the independent film “A Nice Girl Like You”. Gomez, on the other hand, voiced Mavis in the computer-animated comedy film Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation released this year. She is also the executive producer of the television show “13 Reasons Why”.
