Emmy winner Rip Torn, whose tempestuous nature made him a compelling character actor on the screen and stage but sometimes caused him trouble on the set and in private life, died on Tuesday at the age of 88, media reports said. Torn, whose late-career resurgence included a key role on U.S. television's "The Larry Sanders Show" and in the movies "Men in Black" and "Dodgeball," died peacefully at his home, his family told the Hollywood Reporter and other media. The cause was not disclosed, but he was surrounded by his wife, actress Amy Wright, known for "Stardust Memories" and "The Accidental Tourist," and his daughters, media reports said. Neither his family nor agent were immediately available for comment late Tuesday. Torn showed great range in his career but with a crooked grin, gruff voice and devilish glint in his eyes, he was especially well suited to playing bad boys and unpredictable characters. He often made headlines because of his volatility. He blamed his dismissal from a … [Read more...] about Rip Torn, Emmy winner and Oscar nominee, dies at 88

MANILA, Philippines – After Phoenix Pulse slumped to a third consecutive defeat in the 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup on Sunday evening, Matthew Wright acknowledged that the Fuel Masters have lost "a little bit of our edge." Phoenix has not won since beating Blackwater, 103-98, in their first game of the conference. They were crushed by TNT, 114-88, then lost Calvin Abueva to an indefinite suspension and coach Louie Alas to a two-game ban. They proceeded to drop their next two assignments without Alas, bowing to Meralco, 101-95, and to Rain or Shine, 89-82. At 1-3, Phoenix is currently tied with Columbian Dyip for eighth and ninth in the league standings. Yet for Wright, more worrisome than their record is the way that they have been playing in their recent games. "I just feel like we're losing a bit of our edge, with Calvin gone and Coach Louie suspended for a couple of games," he admitted after their loss to Rain or Shine on Sunday. "You know, those two guys – especially … [Read more...] about PBA: Wright feels Phoenix ‘losing our edge as a team’
