Mehcad Brooks says that starring as James Olsen on The CW's "Supergirl" helped him realize that he was sexist, and hopes that the show can encourage other people to reevaluate their beliefs.
"Playing James Olsen has made me a more complete, inclusive, and better person," Brooks, who stars as the acting CEO of CatCo Worldwide Media and vigilante The Guardian, told INSIDER.
The 37-year-old explained that previous roles he's taken on "were beneath my character, and started to affect me, so I had to take a step back and figure out who I am and do better work." With his CW character, the experience has "been the opposite."
Will Any Music Awards Show Get Representation For Women Right? None Have Yet.
On last night’s American Music Awards (AMAs), Taylor Swift doubled down on her voter registration message, Ciara and Missy Elliott leveled up, and Aretha Franklin finally got the tribute she deserved. Women were at the forefront of the show, which was a vast step forward from their massive under representation at the Grammys or the MTV VMAs and the number of awards they won was a step up from their Billboard Music Awards treatment. The AMAS did the best job representing women as performers and winners of any music awards show this year. They also showed us how far music has to go to fix its #MeToo and representation issues.
But digging a little deeper, the AMAs also highlight some serious areas that need work. First and foremost, let’s talk about the late XXXTentacion being nominated for two awards, and winning one that was broadcast in the show. Imagine the Golden Globes nominating Roman Polanski (or Woody Allen, or Kevin Spacey, or any number of high profile men accused of sexual misconduct) for an award this year, of all years. Imagine them giving it to him on television. And imagine that later on, when a woman nominated against him lauds his work, saying she’s a fan and it’s an honor to be in the same category as him. That’s essentially what happened with XXX’s win, and Camila Cabello’s subsequent lauding of him in her Best New Artist acceptance speech. XXX, who passed away earlier this year, may have been a talented artist and undoubtedly has legions of fans. But he is also accused of violent, disturbing abuse against a woman. We don’t have to celebrate abusers at our awards show, and to do so only tells women that their pain is not important. It was an especially bitter pill to swallow after weeks of the Kavanaugh confirmation battle. Music seems to think it can continue to exist in a bubble where #MeToo and support for the survivors of abuse are negligible.

The Catholic Church Is Rich Enough to Settle Sex Abuse Cases Forever
It sometimes seems as if you could rattle off a list of Catholic sex abuse scandals in perpetuity. The pope, for his part, has barely responded outside of summoning the world's bishops to the Vatican for a meeting this winter to discuss the ongoing crisis.
Considering the unlikelihood of criminal consequences for those at the clergy's top levels, and the fact that many of these sex abuse cases have far surpassed the statutes of limitations, the endgame seems increasingly a financial—that is, a civil liability—question. But can the Church settle with survivors forever? Will it ever, somehow, completely run out of money with which to do so? In settling sex abuse claims, the Church has already reportedly spent or agreed to spend at least $3 billion in the US alone, and about 20 American dioceses have filed for some kind of bankruptcy. There's little evidence that will slow down, or that the price tag won't keep climbing. (In Pennsylvania, for example, bishops said they supported a fund to compensate survivors if they could prove they were abused but, because of the statute of limitations in the state, could no longer file a lawsuit.)

Linda Blair explains why she starred in the notorious Exorcist II: The Heretic
On Sept. 25, Scream Factory is releasing a collector’s edition Blu-ray of 1977’s notorious Exorcist II: The Heretic. While the film was directed by the great John Boorman (Deliverance, Excalibur), and is beloved by some genre fans, it is fair to say this horror sequel does not enjoy quite the same high reputation as William Friedkin’s original movie. In fact, Boorman’s movie is widely regarded as among the most bewildering big screen projects all-time. But returning franchise star Linda Blair, who played the possessed child Regan MacNeil in the original movie, went into the project with high hopes and still has fond memories of working with her legendary costar Richard Burton (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), as she reveals in a just-released clip from an interview featured on the 2-disc set.
Amandla Stenberg Came Out as Gay After Battling 'Internalized Homophobia': 'I Was Scared'
Amandla Stenberg isn’t afraid to talk about her true sexuality, even if she had to come out twice to get there.
Stenberg graces the cover of Seventeen‘s October/November issue where she sheds more light on her decision to clarify that she is gay in 2018 after previously coming out as bisexual two years prior.
“Gender and sexuality are so fluid—it’s okay to change your mind a million times and figure out what works for you,” she said. “It’s okay to take your time… I’d been out as bisexual, and people have known I’m queer for a long time. I saw some comments that made me chuckle, like, ‘Girl, we been knew!’ But I wanted to make it very clear that I have romantic love for women.”
