Steve Martin was the most recent alumni of "Saturday Night Live" to return to the stage for the cold open. Martin appeared as the recently-indicted Trump adviser Roger Stone during the Jan. 27 episode, which was hosted by rookie James McAvoy with a musical performance from Philly's own Meek Mill. The cold open was a parody of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" hosted by Carlson (Alex Moffat) with special segments on the government shutdown, Wilbur Ross (Kate McKinnon) and on Stone's recent arrest by special counsel Robert Mueller. Stone's Friday arrest could be the most direct evidence unearthed regarding the supposed alliance between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks in an effort to slander Hillary Clinton's presidential run, according to the New York Times.Martin parodied Stone's somewhat bizarre love of Richard Nixon, evident in his dramatic display on Federal District Court steps after his arrest where he held up Nixon's signature 'Victory' hand signs and declared his … [Read more...] about Steve Martin came back to ‘SNL’ as Roger Stone in this week’s cold open
Britain should copy Singapore's model of light-touch regulation and low taxes after Brexit, according to one of Britain's best-known businessmen. Sir Martin Sorrell, who founded the WPP advertising empire, opposed Brexit and is backing a second referendum.However, he believes that, if Brexit does go ahead, then the UK should be at pains to separate itself from European regulation and attract the likes of Google, Microsoft and Apple.Sir Martin, who resigned from WPP last year after claims of financial irregularity, has now set up a new company, called S4 Capital.He remains, however, one of the world's most celebrated experts in the field of advertising and branding.Sir Martin says that the UK's global reputation has come "under pressure" thanks to two years of protracted negotiations over Brexit.He said: "On the assumption that we come out of the European Union we would therefore have to rebuild that brand, in my view."We would have to re-position the UK in the context of leaving the … [Read more...] about Sir Martin Sorrell: UK should copy Singapore’s low taxes after Brexit
Matthew Dolan Detroit Free Press Published 5:05 PM EST Jan 21, 2019 Rudy Barker's impersonation may have been the sincerest form of flattery to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "I often asked myself why did Dr. King get assassinated on my 12 birthday, April 4, in 1968," Barker wrote in a self-obituary published as part of his funeral service Monday. "It was revealed that God gave me the gift of impersonating voices so I could carry on the legacy of Dr. King." Barker died earlier this month at age 62. On Monday morning, dozens of his family and friends memorialized his life to coincide with the birthday of King, who had inspired Barker to become an pitch-perfect impersonator when he was growing up in Detroit's housing projects.

By Rob Golum Bloomberg Sun., Jan. 20, 2019 The psychological thriller “Glass,” from Universal Pictures and director M. Night Shyamalan, opened as the top film of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend in the U.S., collecting an estimated $40.6 million (U.S.) in North American theatres, Comscore Inc. said. The picture, featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and James McAvoy, was one of two new films opening in wide release. It missed Box Office Pro’s three-day forecast of $51.5 million and was expected to collect $59.4 million through the Monday MLK holiday. “Dragon Ball Super: Broly,” a Japanese anime feature from 20th Century Fox, opened last Tuesday and brought in $8.7 million over the weekend. January is one of the slowest months for theatres, and that’s not lost on major studios, which set a light release schedule after the busy holiday season. “Glass” was made for just $20 million, according to Box Office … [Read more...] about M.
