'Empire' star Jussie Smollett hospitalized after apparent hate crime

Empire star Jussie Smollett was hospitalized after being targeted in an apparent hate crime.

Entertainment Tonight confirmed Tuesday the 35-year-old actor is recovering after being attacked in what appeared to be a homophobic and racially-charged incident in Chicago.

The Chicago Police Department said the victim was walking when two unknown men approached and shouted racial and homophobic slurs. The offenders allegedly attacked the victim about the face and poured an unknown chemical substance onto him.

Police said the offenders wrapped a rope around the victim's neck at one point during the incident before ultimately fleeing the scene. The victim took himself to Northwestern Hospital and is in good condition.

"Overnight, the Chicago Police Department received a report of a possible racially-charged assault and battery involving a cast member of the television show Empire," department rep Anthony Gulielmi said in a statement.

"Given the severity of the allegations, we are taking this investigation very seriously and treating it as a possible hate crime. Detectives are currently working to gather video, identify potential witnesses and establish an investigative timeline," he added.

Variety said the alleged attack took place at around 2 a.m. Tuesday morning. Smollett arrived in Chicago Monday, according to an Instagram post, and was slated to perform in the city Saturday.

Smollett plays Jamal Lyon on Empire, which returned for a fifth season on Fox in September. He publicly came out as gay during an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show in March 2015.

"If you don't like my fashion style or my music that's one thing. But don't say you can't dress someone that isn't a runway size. Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less then by their size. We are beautiful any size! Small or large!"

Zack Snyder to direct Netflix zombie thriller 'Army of the Dead'

GadgetsNetflix has announced that Man of Steel and Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder will helm its zombie thriller Army of the Dead.

"A group of mercenaries take the ultimate gamble: venturing into a quarantine zone following a zombie outbreak to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted," the streaming service tweeted Tuesday.

The Hollywood Reporter said Joby Harold penned the screenplay for the project, which will be set in Las Vegas.

Filming is slated to begin this summer.

"There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one," Snyder told the entertainment industry trade newspaper. "I thought this was a good palate cleanser to really dig in with both hands and make something fun and epic and crazy and bonkers in the best possible way."

No casting has been announced yet.

Snyder's credits also include Dawn of the Dead, 300, Sucker Punch and Watchmen.

The most recent film he directed was 2017's Justice League. He left the production shortly before it was finished, however, to deal with the suicide of his 20-year-old daughter Autumn. Joss Whedon completed the film in his absence.

Which Jurassic World star was named the 2019 Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year?

Harvard's Hasty Pudding Theatricals said Tuesday it will present Jurassic World and Lady in the Water actress Bryce Dallas Howard with its 2019 Woman of the Year Award.

The oldest theatrical organization in the United States, which dates back to 1795, will welcome Howard Thursday with a public parade through the streets of Cambridge, Mass., followed by a celebratory roast and a press conference at Farkas Hall.

Howard is also expected to watch the troupe's original production France France Revolution, which will be the first Hasty Pudding show featuring both men and women in the cast. The company's male actors have traditionally performed female roles in drag.

"We are thrilled to honor Bryce Dallas Howard as our 68th Woman of the Year and for her to witness the groundbreaking first performance with our wonderful cast, featuring six talented Harvard women," co-producer Elizabeth Mann said in a press release.

Previous Woman of the Year Award recipients include Ella Fitzgerald, Meryl Streep, Whoopi Goldberg, Julia Roberts, Halle Berry, Kerry Washington and Octavia Spencer. Mila Kunis was last year's honoree.

The 2019 Hasty Pudding Man of the Year has not been announced yet. Last year's winner was Paul Rudd.
