Judge orders Kevin Spacey to appear at Monday's arraignment

A Massachusetts judge has ordered actor Kevin Spacey to appear at his arraignment next week on a sexual assault charge.

The decision on Monday was in response to a motion Spacey filed asking permission to miss the proceeding.

"I am requesting that this court excuse my physical presence at the arraignment as I reside out-of-state and believe that my presence will amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with this case," Spacey's affidavit read.

Spacey said in his court papers that he intends to plead not guilty at Monday's arraignment.

Prosecutors announced last month that they were charging the Oscar-winning actor with felony indecent assault and battery stemming from an alleged encounter with a then-18-year-old at a Nantucket bar in July 2016.

The same day the charge was made public, the fired House of Cards star posted a video on YouTube appearing to defend himself.

Spacey seems to adopt his character from the show to criticize the series' final season while at the same time defend his real-life persona from the allegations against him.

Spacey was fired from the Netflix drama amid sexual assault accusations from several men, starting with an allegation by actor Anthony Rapp who said Spacey drunkenly tried to seduce him decades ago when Spacey was 26 and Rapp was 14.

Kanye West returns to politics, continues to support President Trump

Kanye West once again showed support for President Donald Trump on Twitter.

West, who had previously stated in October that he was distancing himself from politics, jumped right back into the subject on Tuesday across multiple tweets.

"Trump all day. Just so in 2019 you know where I stand," he said along with a tweet featuring dragon emojis that calls back to West previously stating that he and the president have dragon energy.

"They will not program me. Black are 90% Democrats. That sounds like control to me," he continued.

"From now on I'm performing with my [expletive] hat on. One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can't tell me what to do because I'm black," West concluded.

West also tweeted out the year 2024, seemingly in reference to how he has repeatedly said he wants to run for president someday.

West had met with Trump in October inside the oval office before a law was signed to update U.S. copyright laws.

West made headlines in December when he reignited his feud with Drake on Twitter, stating that the fellow rapper threatened him over the phone.

Netflix pulls 'Patriot Act' episode in Saudi Arabia over Khashoggi killing

Netflix has removed an episode of Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj from its streaming service in Saudi Arabia that criticized the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Minhaj blamed Saudi Arabia and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the killing in the episode. Minhaj poked fun at the Saudi government's explanations for Khashoggi's disappearance and said U.S. tech companies should cut financial ties with the country.

Khashoggi, a Saudi citizen, U.S. resident and Washington Post columnist, was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2. The CIA concluded in November that Salman ordered the killing.

Netflix was threatened with prosecution under Saudi Arabia's cybercrime law for the episode.

"We strongly support artistic freedom and removed this episode only in Saudi Arabia after we had received a valid legal request -- and to comply with local law," Netflix said in a statement.

The episode can still be accessed globally on YouTube.

Netflix launched Patriot Act in October. The talk show features Minhaj, a former star on The Daily Show, discussing politics and culture.

Jimmy Osmond suffers stroke during show in England

Jimmy Osmond's publicist said the entertainer was hospitalized in England after suffering a stroke on stage during a show at the Birmingham Hippodrome.

"On the evening of Thursday 27 December, after pushing through the evening's performance of Peter Pan at Birmingham Hippodrome, Jimmy Osmond was driven straight to hospital and diagnosed with a stroke," Osmond's representative said in a statement Monday.

Osmond, 55, is the brother of music stars Donny and Marie Osmond.

He was playing Captain Hook in a pantomime of Peter Pan when he fell ill, but he finished his performance and even signed autographs for admirers before accepting medical attention.

He reportedly will not return to the show, which is to wrap up Jan. 27. His understudy is taking over the part.

"Prayers for my brother Jimmy," Marie tweeted Monday.

"Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers on behalf of my little brother, Jimmy. I love you, brother," Donny wrote in his own post.




??? Guess Who ???

Which 'Evil Dead' icon will host the new 'Ripley's' show?

Bruce Campbell has signed on to host a new version of the docu-series Ripley's Believe It or Not! for the Travel Channel.

The rebooted show is set to premiere later this year. Previous hosts have included Dean Cain, Marie Osmond and Jack Palance.

Campbell made the announcement during a New Year's Eve visit to the Ripley's attraction in New York's Times Square.

"As an actor, I've always been drawn towards stuff that's a little more out there, a little more fantastical. As a kid, I read the Ripley books. I saw the TV shows. So, I'm here to announce officially, once and for all, just blowing into town to tell you that we're officially bringing back Ripley as a television show. I'm hosting for the Travel Channel," Campbell said.

The actor is best known for playing Ash Williams, the chainsaw-handed demon fighter in several Evil Dead movies and the Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead, which was canceled last year after three seasons.

Days before Campbell's appearance in New York, Ripley's teased that he was coming to make a "very exciting announcement."

"Believe it!" Campbell tweeted.
