Here's the Scoop...

Superman no more?

Multiple reports have surfaced stating that Henry Cavill is exiting the role of Superman and will no longer be appearing as the superhero in any upcoming DC Comics films.

Cavill was said to have been approached about a cameo role in DC's upcoming Shazam! film with contract talks between the actor and Warner Bros. breaking down, closing the door on other Superman appearances, noted The Hollywood Reporter citing sources.

The Wrap confirmed that Cavill is out as Superman, citing individuals with knowledge of the situation.

Cavill's departure comes as Warner Bros. and DC are reportedly focusing on a standalone Supergirl movie as opposed to a sequel to 2013's Man of Steel.

Cavill has starred as Superman in three films including Man of Steel, 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017's Justice League.

Warner Bros. and Cavill have yet to confirm the news or officially comment on the matter.

I feel bad for Cavill. He looked the part, but got stuck with really bad material. Hopefully, he'll get better work now that he's free for the DC Cinematic Universe.

Be Well,
Steve

Geoffrey Owens to guest star on 'NCIS: New Orleans'
Former Cosby Show star Geoffrey Owens has landed a guest-starring role on an upcoming episode of NCIS: New Orleans after a photo of the actor working at a Trader Joe's went viral.

Owens is set to appear on the sixth episode of NCIS: New Orleans' upcoming fifth season which kicks off on Sept. 25.

Owens will be featured as Commander Adams, a friend of Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula), noted The Hollywood Reporter. Pride will be seen in the episode visiting Adams for medical and spiritual advice.

"For Commander Adams, we needed someone with compassion, competence and heart. That's Geoffrey in a nutshell -- an accomplished actor who seemed like the perfect fit to add to our extended repertory company," NCIS: New Orleans executive producer Christopher Silber said in a statement. "We're lucky to have him on the show."

The role comes after Tyler Perry gave Owens a recurring role on OWN series The Haves and the Have Nots.

Owens, who portrayed Elvin Tibideaux on The Cosby Show, made headlines after he was photographed working at a Trader Joe's grocery store in New Jersey. The photo gained national attention with many on social media showing support for Owens as he worked at the store in-between acting roles.

"There's no job better than another...every job is worthwhile..." Owens said previously on Good Morning America about working at Trader Joe's despite being an actor.


Norm Macdonald apologizes for #MeToo comments
Norm Macdonald has apologized on Twitter for comments he made regarding the #MeToo movement which led to his scheduled appearance on the Tonight Show being canceled.

The comedian, who has a new series on Netflix titled Norm Macdonald Has a Show set to premiere on Friday, drew criticism when he said he was glad that the #MeToo movement has slowed down and defended Roseanne Barr and Louis C.K. in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"There are very few people that have gone through what they have, losing everything in a day. Of course, people will go, 'What about the victims?' But you know what? The victims didn't have to go through that," Macdonald said about Barr and C.K.

NBC then canceled Macdonald's Tuesday appearance on The Tonight Show. "Out of sensitivity to our audience and in light of Norm Macdonald's comments in the press today, The Tonight Show has decided to cancel his appearance on Tuesday's telecast," a spokesperson for the late night show said.

"Roseanne and Louis have both been very good friends of mine for many years. They both made terrible mistakes and I would never defend their actions. If my words sounded like I was minimizing the pain that their victims feel to this day, I am deeply sorry," Macdonald said in his apology.

Norm Macdonald Has a Show features Macdonald and his sidekick Adam Eget interviewing celebrities. Drew Barrymore, David Spade, Judge Judy, David Letterman, Jane Fonda, Chevy Chase, M. Night Shyamalan, Michael Keaton, Billy Joe Shaver and Lorne Michaels are set to appear.


??? Guess Who ???

Which Oscar-winning actress said she regrets her role in 'The Help'?

Viola Davis says she regrets her role in the 2011 film The Help.

The 53-year-old actress explained her issues with the Oscar-winning movie in an interview with The New York Times published Tuesday.

"Have I ever done roles that I've regretted? I have, and The Help is on that list. But not in terms of the experience and the people involved because they were all great," she told the publication.

Davis and Octavia Spencer played housemaids Aibileen and Minny in The Help, which was set in Jackson, Miss., in the 1960s. Davis received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for the role, while Spencer won Best Supporting Actress.

"I just felt that at the end of the day that it wasn't the voices of the maids that were heard," Davis explained.

"I know Aibileen. I know Minny. They're my grandma. They're my mom," she said. "And I know that if you do a movie where the whole premise is, I want to know what it feels like to work with white people and to bring up children in 1963, I want to hear how you really feel about it. I never heard that in the course of the movie."

Davis shared similar sentiments about the film at the BAFTA A Life in Pictures event in January 2017.

"I don't feel like it was from our perspective, that's the problem I had with it. I had it from the very beginning," the star said, according to The Telegraph.

"That's the issue I have with a lot of our stories. By the time... it makes it to the screen, the truth is so filtered down, and then it's given to you to make you feel very comfortable," she added.

Davis will next star in the movie Widows, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival this week. She will also return in the ABC series How to Get Away with Murder, which premieres a fifth season Sept. 27.
