Oliver Stone Criticizes Hollywood for Turning Into an 'Alice in Wonderland' Tea Party
Oliver Stone is not a fan of the current state of Hollywood and is in no hurry to work with a studio on a mainstream film as he says the town has gone "mad."
Talking to the New York Times Magazine for a recently published interview with David Marchese, the controversial Stone called modern moviemaking "ridiculous."
"It's just so expensive — the marketing," Stone began. "Everything has become too fragile, too sensitive. Hollywood now — you can't make a film without a COVID adviser. You can't make a film without a sensitivity counselor. It's ridiculous." The Oscar-winning filmmaker granted the interview to discuss his upcoming memoir, Chasing the Light.
"The Academy changes its mind every five, 10, two months about what it's trying to keep up with," Stone told the magazine. "It's politically correct [expletive], and it's not a world I'm anxious to run out into. I've never seen it quite mad like this. It's like an Alice in Wonderland tea party."

Dolly Parton secretly produced Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and fans have only just found out
Dolly Parton secretly produced Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the unexpected crossover of cultural icons has left fans reeling.
While Parton was not herself credited as a producer on the long-running fantasy series, a company she co-created and owned was responsible for it coming to television.
Sandollar Entertainment, which is listed on the end credits of every episode of the show, was created by Parton and her friend and former business partner Sandy Gallin in 1986. It produced a number of films, including Father of the Bride (1991) and Fly Away Home (1996), as well as several Parton projects – most recently her Netflix anthology series Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings.
Chace Crawford’s Got An Enormous Bulge In A Calendar For ‘The Boys,’ And People Have Definitely Noticed
Chace Crawford is currently starring in Amazon’s The Boys series about a ragtag group of vigilantes who are on a mission to keep corrupt and sleazy superheroes in check. In the series, Crawford stars as one of the aforementioned “supes” who goes by The Deep, in that he can breathe underwater with gills and also has the ability to communicate with aquatic life.
Initially, The Deep is presented as a real scumbag — which is not inaccurate, given that he sexually assaults a new, young female recruit in literally the first scene he’s introduced. However it’s eventually revealed the general lack of respect he commands among his colleagues and he even elicits a modicum of sympathy in a tragic yet highly comedic side story.
In any event, The Deep has been lauded by some as the most interesting character of the series by the end of the first season, which may be why Amazon recently sent out a jokey 2020 promotional calendar to members of the media featuring the character in 12 months of bright and splashy (pun not intended) pictorials.

A Gay Castmember Tested the Limits of Mr. Rogers's 'I Like You Just the Way You Are' Philosophy
For such an affectionate, authorized portrait, Morgan Neville’s Fred Rogers bio-doc Won’t You Be My Neighbor contains enough revelations to make you see Rogers in a new light. While multiple sources maintain that the soft-spoken, kind persona Rogers inhabited on his long-running children’s show Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood reflected who he was when the cameras weren’t rolling, one of his surviving sons reports that he did occasionally make off-brand observations. When he did so at the dinner table, he’d do it in the voice of his puppet character Lady Elaine.
The doc also tackles rumors about Rogers’s sexuality head-on. Presumably because Rogers was both gentle in affect (soft, if you will) and a man, there was speculation that he was gay.
