McCartney remembers Lennon at March for Our Lives rally
Rock 'n' roll icon Paul McCartney said he attended Saturday's March for Our Lives protest in New York, in part, because his close friend and former Beatles bandmate John Lennon was shot to death.

McCartney was wearing a shirt that said, "We can end gun violence," when he told CNN he was at the rally "just to support the people."

"This is what we can do, so I'm here to do it," the 70-year-old musician said in Manhattan. "One of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here. So, it's important to me."

Mark David Chapman is serving a prison sentence of 20 years to life for gunning down Lennon, 40, in 1980 outside of his New York apartment building. Chapman repeatedly has been denied parole, most recently in 2016.

Student activists gathered for March for Our Lives rallies around the world Saturday to push for an end to gun violence.

The Cook County medical examiner's office confirmed Brown's Friday death at Franciscan St. James Health Olympia Fields to the Chicago Tribune, however the cause was not disclosed.

"We are devastated by the loss of a very talented and kindhearted soul," said Brown's manager Robert Schroeder, of Grossman & Jack Talent in Chicago. "She brought laughter and joy to many, and she will be greatly missed."

Before finding success as an actress, Brown worked as a counselor at Kenwood Academy High School, where she also led the Drama Starz Program.

The Chicago native played infirmary nurse Katie Welch on Prison Break and appeared in episodes of Electric Dreams, Empire and Shameless.

Deadline.com noted she played Connie, assistant to Chief Boden, on Chicago Fire since the series began in 2012.

FX, Donald Glover back out of 'Deadpool' deal
Writer-producer brothers Donald Glover and Stephen Glover are no longer working with FX on Marvel's planned adult animated television series based on the Deadpool comics.

A voice cast had not yet been announced for the small-screen project about a mercenary with super powers.

"Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel's Deadpool animated series," the cable network said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter Saturday. "FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue."

The Wrap said the network ordered a 10-episode, first season of the Deadpool show last May.

Ryan Reynolds played the titular antihero in the 2016 live-action Deadpool blockbuster and will reprise his role in the movie sequel Deadpool 2 May 18.

In addition to being a writer and producer, Glover is also an actor known for his work on the TV series Atlanta and Community.


Nikki Bella takes John Cena to prom on 'Ellen'
Nikki Bella surprised her fiance John Cena with an impromptu prom Friday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show after the WWE Superstar said he did not attend his high school prom.

Cena, who was on hand to promote his new film Blockers about a group of parents who attempt to stop their daughters from losing their virginity on prom night, said that he missed the big dance at his school due to being "dead broke" and wanting to work at a job that night instead.

Bella then appeared on the other side of the talk show stage in a purple dress and surrounded by prom scenery which included a disco ball, balloons and a bowl of punch.

The WWE power couple then posed for photos as prom king and queen and shared a number of romantic kisses.

"I hate surprises but this one I like," Cena said to DeGeneres. The 16-time World Champion would later go on to dance awkwardly with Bella and spike the punch with alcohol.

"We can't dance like this at our wedding!" Bella said.

Cena proposed to Bella in the middle of a WWE ring last year at WrestleMania 33. The pair are currently planning their wedding.

Blockers, which also stars Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz, is set to arrive in theaters on April 6.
