  • The lead single 'Gold' taken from Australian electronic music producer Chet Faker debut album 'Built In Glass' is both haunting and beautiful. And the music video captures the atmosphere perfectly, check it out below.

    Frequent collaborator and producer Flume has already released a rework of this track. His re-imagination of the track takes the original and tweaks small sections of the song just enough to create a new listening experience of the track.

    Mods: I did the wording myself, the media is what's sourced.

    ONTD, what have you been listening to or watching lately?

  • 08/19/14--19:13: RICK PERRY MUGSHOT OOPS!!!

  • Texas Governor Rick Perry pursed his lips with a faint smile as he posed for his mug shot ... and the pic is a study in politics and spin control.

    As you probably know ... Perry has been indicted for felony abuse of power ... trying to coerce a political enemy -- a D.A. who was convicted of drunk driving -- out of office by threatening to veto a law enforcement bill if she didn't resign.

    Perry -- who says the charges are BS -- has a lot at stake in this mug shot. He clearly wants to run for President in 2016, so the way he looks and dresses in the pic is critical.

    Nice suit, crisp white shirt, appropriate blue tie. The look is confident, defiant but not too smug. It's way better than James Brown's mug and on a par with Armie Hammer and Lindsay's 6th.

    Well done.


    Would you smile in your mugshot, ONTD???

    We need a mug shot tag imo.

    With the Spider-Man film slate for the next few years being treated like balls thrown up in the air and seeing where they land it’s understandable that us Spider-Fans would be in a state of confusion. The dust seems to have settled though and we now know that Sinister Six is coming in 2016, a female led Spider-Man film and the Venom spin-off are set for 2017 and Amazing Spider-Man 3 is due in 2018.

    Naturally you’d expect the stars of the franchise to have some idea of what’s going on with the Spider-Man films, after all they’ll need to be free to star in the films that they’re required to star in. For example Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin should be expected in Sinister Six, and maybe Amazing Spider-Man 3 depending on what happens in the Sinister Six. This means that he’ll have a four year wait to complete his obligations towards Sony’s franchise. But he knew that already right, Sony were clearly in talks with him?

    Wrong. In a recent interview with Collider to promote his latest film ‘Life After Beth’ DeHaan was asked about the Amazing Spider-Man franchise, or more specifically he was asked how the release date changes affected him. DeHaan replied with “Yeah, I have no idea. Honestly, I’m finding out about stuff at the same time as other people. I’m reading it in the news at this point, so we’ll see what happens.”

    So it seems that Dane DeHaan was as in the dark as we were. But at least Dane does have a small amount of knowledge regarding the Sinister Six as we explained to Collider “It’s like, these six bad guys in the Spider-Man universe. It’s kind of like The Avengers of bad guys.” Before adding that working on a big blockbuster franchise was a priveledge “No, it’s an unbelievable gift to be a part of something like that with such talented people. It’s like a childhood dream come true. There’s absolutely nothing negative about being attached to those kinds of things.”

    ‘Life After Beth’s’ Dane DeHaan Talks Zombie Love & Harry Osborn’s Future

    Welcome to Hollywood 2014, Dane DeHaan. The rising young star has gone from grappling with angst-ridden, spider-powered superheroes to tangling with a girlfriend with an increasing taste for human flesh.

    After breaking through with films made by an emerging avant garde – including Josh Trank’s Chronicle, Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines and Josh Krokidas’ Kill Your Darlings – this year the 28-year-old actor has starred in two very of-the-moment genres, first playing Harry Osborn, Peter Parker’s childhood pal turned homicidal supervillain Green Goblin, in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and now appearing opposite Aubrey Plaza in the zombie comedy Life After Beth.

    In the film, from writer/director Jeff Baena, DeHaan is Zach Orfman, a man grieving the sudden death of his about-to-be ex-girlfriend, only to have her re-enter his life as a transitioning zombie whose growing raging issues are soothed by jazz and sexual contact.

    DeHaan, who next appears in the biopic Life, playing film icon James Dean opposite Robert Pattinson’s magazine photographer Dennis Stock, spoke with Spinoff Online about playing the straight man to a flesh-eating paramour and her denial-minded family, decoding Dean and what he hopes the future has in store for Harry Osborn.

    Spinoff Online: How eager were you to play this tortured romantic relationship? And how eager were you to just be in a zombie movie?

    Dane DeHaan: Well, I really wanted to do a comedy more than anything, and I got to do it with some of my favorite comedians. That’s what it was about. You know, I’ve done so many different genres of movies, but I’ve never done a comedy movie until now. I did a comedy off-Broadway when I first got out of school, but that’s kind of what it was about.

    You were working with so many different comedy pros of different ages and different levels of experience. What did you learn from watching this cast of greats that got assembled for this movie?

    Yeah, it just depends, but I think that the biggest thing I took away from it was that – at least for me – it’s still about truth, and it’s still about giving yourself over to the circumstances. It’s just in this movie the circumstances are very funny. And, I think some people are just born really funny: inevitably when John C. Reilly does something or Molly Shannon does something or Aubrey does something, chances are you’ll want to laugh more than if anyone else would do something, because they’re just born funny. There’s something about them, their perspective on life is comedic. And even those three, and everyone else in the movie, when they gave themselves over to the truth of the situation, it was their essence that made them funny not them trying to do some kind of comedic thing.

    How did you find what was funny about your role, Zach, as even just as a character who reacts to the others?

    Well, I don’t know, I think, yeah. it’s about creating the character without getting too boring about it. You just kind of look at “Who is Zach?” and “Who is Zach?” comes from “What does Zach do?” and I think it’s pretty clear that Zach is kind of this college kid that doesn’t know how to express himself, but is put in a situation where his life is crashing down. Like everything is happening to extremes, and he’s forced to go through these circumstances that force him to express himself to extremes, and he’s not comfortable doing that. But, given over to the circumstances, he has to. I guess maybe that’s where the comedy comes from: somebody being forced to be super-expressive in extreme circumstances, when they’re not even comfortable having a normal conversation.

    You’re really getting to sample a lot of different elements of acting in Hollywood: You’ve done a big superhero blockbuster, serious dramas, a comedy, you have a biopic coming up. What’s it been like being able to take on all of the diverse opportunities coming at you right now?

    First and foremost, it’s a dream come true! I consider myself so incredibly lucky, and it’s kind of mind blowing that not only do I get to work at this level of my profession, which I never expected to. But you’re right: I went from a comic-book movie, to a zombie-comedy, to this pretty serious James Dean biopic, and I just did a 17th-century romance. To me, that’s mind blowing. And I think, somehow – not many people are given the opportunity to do so many different kinds of things. But I do always want to just be seen as an actor and not as a specific kind of actor, and I always want to grow as an actor. I think the way to grow is to continue to challenge myself in different ways, and so I kind of just set my sights on a project. And sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn’t, but I’ve been really lucky to kind of pick ones that have mostly worked out and have provided me an opportunity to do a wide variety of work and learn a lot along the way.

    A character like this exists within the context of this movie, the script, and if you have questions about his history, you can just ask the director and the writer. With somebody like Harry Osborn, a fictional character, and somebody like James Dean, a real person, how do you go about researching them, and the aspects of them that you want to bring to your performance? Or do you not?

    Well, I think, yeah, all of those are very different, right? So Harry has been around for over 50 years, there’s been many incarnations of Harry, and this was a new incarnation of Harry, but he is always the same kind of archetypical character and there are elements that make him Harry Osborn. No matter what era he’s in, no matter what incarnation of the story you’re seeing, there are certain character traits that I found should be there, and then it’s about “Where does that fit into modern day?” This was a completely fictitious character, so it does come down mostly to the script, and about what the character’s doing in the script, and how that informs who he is. And then James Dean only existed at one point, was a real person, but also what’s interesting about James Dean is he’s been turned into this kind of mythical icon. And when I would tell somebody, “I’m playing James Dean in a movie,” they would almost always come back to me with something that they thought they knew about James Dean. And as I was reading as much stuff as I could on him, I realized that there’s so many different versions of James Dean out there. All these people have different ideas of who he was, have different ideas of what he did, and that was a really interesting process of sifting through all that information and trying to find, to me, what was actually true. You know: What perspective was this book written from? What perspective was this book written from? And how does that influence what they’re saying about this person that actually existed? And who was he actually? Not through the filter of somebody that knew him, but gathering all of the facts together and trying to assimilate who he was as a person, not just who he was as an iconic figure.

    Was there something you learned about Dean that helped you turn the key as far as what you wanted to do in your performance?

    I think he was somebody that – he went through a lot as a kid, a lot, and I think there was this sense that even though, in the end, he kind of had a familial situation and people to take care of him, he did feel like he kind of had to take care of himself. And, you know, fuck the world before the world fucked him. And I think that was a big driving force in his life.

    Now that you’ve done some comedy, are you bitten by the comedy bug? Do you want to do a lot more?

    Yeah, well, I don’t want to spend my year only doing comedies, but I really hope that this shows people that I can do it and it affords me more opportunities to do it, because that variety is great, and to come off of a really serious movie and to be able to let loose and be in a comedic, fun environment, I think is not only good for my career, but good for myself as a human being.

    Do you want to play the crazy one next time, one of the characters that’s a little bit more outlandish?

    I don’t know. I don’t know that I could do that. But maybe that would be the challenge, ‘cause it is always the ones that I say that I don’t know if I could do that, that is the ones I want to do. So maybe that would be fun to try.

    Did you have any sort of fondness or affinity for the zombie genre? Or was it, it sort of happened to be part of this movie for the central joke?

    Yeah, mostly it just happened to be part of the movie. I didn’t want to do it [just] because it was a zombie movie. And I really liked 28 Days Later, but I won’t definitely see [any] movie if it comes out and has a zombie in it.

    With The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we got a taste of Harry Osborn, but we’re expecting to see more of that character. What do you want to do with him next? What areas do you want to get to explore about Harry, if it was up to you?

    Gosh, I don’t know! You know, I think that’s a good question and not something I’ve had a lot of time to think about, because I’ve been really busy. But at this point, I’m just hoping that they have me back and that I get to keep going, because I had such a blast doing that movie and that was such a dream come true and the people involved are so great. But I don’t really know what’s going on and I don’t really want to put an expectation onto what I want to go on. I think it’s all in good hands, and I trust the people over there. I just hope they let me keep playing.

    Peter Capaldi remembers the car that came to his London home last August to drive him to the live TV special that revealed him to be Doctor Who's newest star. Because it only took him to a parking lot. "Like in a cheap British spy movie, I was dropped off and told to wait for another car to pick me up," says the actor, whose first full episode in the title role is the Season 8 premiere, airing August 23. "Then I was put in the backseat, covered in a blanket, and taken away to become the Doctor. This is a true story."

    Here's the thing about Doctor Who: Its hero is a time-traveling alien (species: Time Lord) who periodically regenerates into a whole new being. Many actors have portrayed the "numbered" Docs — First Doctor (William Hartnell), Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton), up to Number Eleven (Matt Smith). Last November's 50th-anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor, featured John Hurt as renegade incarnation the War Doctor, but Capaldi's newbie will still be Number Twelve. You know, so it's not confusing.

    Four years ago, the British sci-fi drama was a cult curiosity around the world. Then Smith's marvelously cheerful Eleventh Doctor caught on. The Day of the Doctor aired simultaneously in 94 countries (a Guinness world record) — and 2.4 million people in the United States tuned in to watch on BBC America. The series is the BBC's most lucrative property, and spoilers are guarded like a baby prince. Hence Capaldi's crazy ride.

    So what's cool about the new guy? Smith and his predecessor, David Tennant, were both under 35 when they got behind the controls of the TARDIS (the Doctor's signature spaceship), while Capaldi is 56. Executive producers Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin wanted an older actor, in part to convey the character's weariness following last season's travails. They also didn't fancy another charmer. "We wanted a Doctor who felt unpredictable," Minchin says, "to make him dangerous." So Number Twelve is rude and unreliable but still dedicated to saving the universe. Capaldi, a star in Britain for his portrayal of a potty-mouthed political strategist on the comedy The Thick of It, was their top choice.

    In conversation, Capaldi, a longtime Who fan, often refers to his character incorrectly as "Doctor Who" rather than as "the Doctor" — which is usually how Who fans separate the geek from the chaff. But the actor harks back to the show's early days, when its hero was credited as "Doctor Who" on screen. He's that old-school. In fact, at 14, he so badly wanted to be on the executive council of the Official Doctor Who Fan Club that he barraged the BBC offices with letters. The producer's secretary was so annoyed, she joked that she hoped the villainous Daleks would set him straight. (She may get her wish in the August 30 episode.) We talked to Capaldi about his Who history, darkening up the Doctor, and that nifty navy blue suit.

    TV Guide Magazine: Rumor has it you burned all of your Doctor Who baubles.
    Capaldi: I had a great pile of Doctor Who stuff: Tops Trumps [a card game], stamps, scripts, autographs, and stills. Then one day I decided, "I'm not into these anymore. I am a true, wild artist. A bohemian!" I call it my "Bonfire of the Vanities," but it actually wasn't a bonfire. I just threw it all out — not in a ritualistic, Wicker Man way.

    TV Guide Magazine: As a boy, did you dream of one day playing the Doctor?
    Capaldi: Never. As a kid, I played at being him on the playground, emulating whichever Doctor was on TV. But I never professionally went, "How can I set about becoming Doctor Who?"

    TV Guide Magazine: How'd it happen then?
    Capaldi: My agent asked, "How would you feel about being the new Doctor?" I laughed, because I'd really never thought about it. But as soon as the idea was presented to me, I went, "Oh, how delicious!"

    TV Guide Magazine: Then what?
    Capaldi: I was filming [the TV series] The Musketeers in Prague, so it took days to get Steven, Brian, [casting director] Andy Pryor, and me in one place. They needed to be secretive. They'd been caught auditioning Matt — found in some seedy hotel in a dodgy bit of town. So they decided the safest spot was Steven's living room. He wrote some scenes specifically for my Doctor.

    TV Guide Magazine: Moffat says they were extra silly scenes to test you.
    Capaldi: They were great! One was a regeneration sequence, which I was sorry we never shot. The Doctor couldn't see himself, and he kept asking Clara [his companion, played by Jenna Coleman], "How's the face? Does it look good?" And she's going, "It's OK." He's like, "What do you mean, 'OK'? OK?" And she's saying, "Well, it's got a few lines on it." And he says, "What? Is that all you care...wait, I haven't gone old, have I?"

    TV Guide Magazine: Would you have taken the role right then?
    Capaldi: I did ask what their plan for the show was. I didn't want to be Doctor Who in a Doctor Who that I didn't like. They also had to decide if they liked me. And I certainly didn't think it was going my way.

    TV Guide Magazine: Why? Actors always say that.
    Capaldi: You're concentrating so hard, you don't know what's going on. You feel out of it, and that feels like disaster. I returned to Prague thinking I had great fun, and that's enough. So I was delighted when they sort of said, "Yeah."

    TV Guide Magazine: "Sort of"?
    Capaldi: It's the BBC. Any decision has to go through a pile of people before they can make an announcement. You're fearful that at any point somebody's going to say, "Oh, no, I don't like him."

    TV Guide Magazine: Obviously, then, you approved of Moffat and Minchin's darker Doctor.
    Capaldi: It's appropriate for somebody my age. Matt and David could be quite dark. But they had a lovely youthful ebullience. My Doctor is more forlorn and trickier to deal with. He's tough to be around, but you do want to be around him. You know those people — you think, "I like that guy, he's really exciting, but he's a bit exhausting and I'm glad I'm not married to him."

    TV Guide Magazine: You've also referred to him as "rock-and-roll." Hence his mod navy drainpipe trousers.
    Capaldi: I always saw my Doctor like that, looking very stark. But because Doctor Who is such a big show, it was important to allow everyone [at the BBC] who had an idea to see what their idea looked like. I tried on everything that anyone ever suggested.

    TV Guide Magazine: For example?
    Capaldi: The worst combinations! The stuff people think is Doctor Who: velvet jackets, scarves, a big floppy hat. But I kept going back to simplifying things and going darker until eventually it had the atmosphere that made me feel like the Doctor.

    TV Guide Magazine: You are wearing a gold ring on the show. Whose idea was that?
    Capaldi: Doctor Who has worn a ring before. Strangely, before I was cast, I was visiting the set of An Adventure in Space and Time [last year's BBC drama about Doctor Who's beginnings], and the granddaughter of First Doctor William Hartnell was also there. She opened this little box of props from the original series. She showed me his fabulous ring. Later, I had a band made with a stone in it [like Hartnell's]. The stone was sent to me by a jeweler whose son wrote this little story that went with it, which was amazingly affecting.

    TV Guide Magazine: How so?
    Capaldi: He said the stone represented, and reminded the Doctor of, all the people he's lost in his long life. But it wasn't a sad thing. It was to remember how joyful times could be. If you travel in time and space, most of the people you know and love will eventually be gone. But you'll also be able to go and find them again.

    TV Guide Magazine: Where will you be when the premiere airs?
    Capaldi: At a screening in London. It'll be quite scary when my Doctor goes out to the world. But it's magical to have such drama. When I meet people — I haven't really been on the show yet, but there are still lots who recognize me from when Matt regenerated [into my Doctor] — they just smile. They're just pleased to see the Doctor. When you're the person they're smiling at, imagine how wonderful it is.

    Doctor Who airs Saturdays at 8/7c on BBC America.

    Michael Muhney, the former Adam Newman of The Young and the Restless, took to Twitter this morning upon the news that Justin Hartley was finally revealed to be his successor in the pivotal role on the CBS soap opera.

    Fan fervor for Muhney to return in the role has gone on for months since his ouster from the series back in December of 2013.

    Muhney recently tweeted to his fans he was also in talks to return to the series, but that it did not pan out.

    Since Muhney is attempting to have fans, who wished for Muhney to return, to not bash the incoming Hartley, he sent out the following tweet:

    Last week, Muhney tweeted: "I was hopeful for a return, but now hopeful for future. Now you'll just have to promise to tune in to my future projects! #lovexo."

    We have finally heard from the man of the hour on social media this morning in a tweet just sent out by Justin Hartley.

    As was announced earlier this morning, the former Revenge, Smallville and Passions star, who is currently airing on ABC’s Mistresses, is joining The Young and the Restless as the new Adam!

    Finally, with the cat out of the bag, and lot of congratulations from the daytime industry and his fans, Justin sent out this tweet:

    If you also look at Hartley’s Twitter timeline, he also tweeted very late last night:

    And what news it turned out to be!

    Hartley also took a moment on Twitter to address Michael Muhney’s earlier tweet stating:

    Hartley will report for work at The Young and the Restless in late September and is scheduled to hit the air during November sweeps.

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may not be coming back this year, but that does not mean the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival will be devoid of major celebrities. In fact, this year’s guest list is power-packed with Oscar-winning veterans and a new breed of emerging stars.

    “I think there is a new generation that is beginning to challenge and replace the generation that you and I grew up with,” TIFF co-director Piers Handling said in an interview as the festival released its tentative guest list on Tuesday. It is tentative because last-minute changes may delete names, or add new ones, as actors and directors adjust their schedules around film shoots.

    Naming Dustin Hoffman, Al Pacino and Richard Gere, Handling said “these A-listers still have huge reputations. But these A-listers belong to our generation and they don’t have quite the same currency with the new generation as they used to with ours. Then you have this group of young stars who are just beginning to appear in strong, interesting work. So the festival has to totally reinvent itself in that way and keep its finger on the pulse of new work and new talent.

    “I mean, I couldn’t be happier. It’s a really wonderful, well-balanced list of both the really established A-listers who have won a lot of Oscars and the younger generation of actors who are just beginning to reap the rewards of their work.”

    Here is our highly selective list of the veterans and the new breed coming to TIFF 2014:

    • Dustin Hoffman (7 Oscar noms, two wins)
    • Al Pacino (8 Oscar noms, one win)
    • Richard Gere (incredibly perhaps, no Oscar action)
    • Diane Keaton (4 Oscar noms, 1 win)
    • Denzel Washington (6 Oscar noms, 2 wins)

    • Robert Duvall (6 Oscar noms, 1 win)
    • Reese Witherspoon (1 Oscar nom, 1 win)

    • Robert Downey Jr. (2 Oscar noms, no wins, but he is currently the best-paid actor in the world)

    • John Travolta (2 Oscar noms, no wins but continues to reinvent and re-launch himself)
    • Jane Fonda (7 Oscar noms, 2 wins)

    • Chris Evans (the Avengers superhero turns to directing)
    • Sam Worthington (this Avatar co-star also gets serious)
    • Felicity Jones (generating buzz after The Amazing Spider-Man 2)
    • Sarah Gadon (local Toronto gal continues to impress internationally)
    • Robert Pattinson (the Twilight co-star eager for a substantial career)

    • Dax Shepard (in The Judge, he wants to prove he has more than comedy chops)
    • Gemma Arterton (not just gorgeous but talented, too)
    • Haley Joel Osment (the kid from The Sixth Sense is a young adult)
    • Daniel Bruhl (this Spaniard is acclaimed for his acting skills in several languages)
    • Chloe Grace Moretz (she can do more than Kick-Ass)

    Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline, Steve Carell, Salma Hayek, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Winslet, Bill Murray, Simon Pegg, Christopher Plummer, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Douglas, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley, Julianne Moore, Michael Moore, Hayden Christensen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Stewart and the sublimely witty Bill Nighy.

    “Hunger Games” filmgoers will be the first to get a glimpse of the highly anticipated “Divergent” sequel this fall, Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. (NYSE: LGF) CEO Jon Feltheimer has confirmed. Feltheimer announced the studio’s decision to premiere the first official trailer for the Shailene Woodley-led film “Insurgent” alongside “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” on Nov. 21 during the company’s fiscal 2015 first-quarter earnings conference last Friday.

    “All the signs are pointing to ['Divergent'] growing into another big young adult franchise like ‘Twilight’ and ‘The Hunger Games,’” Feltheimer told analysts, reports Seeking Alpha. “With the first ‘Insurgent’ trailer slated to debut with the release of ‘Mockingjay’ in November, skyrocketing book sales, a stellar home entertainment launch and stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Ansel Elgort generating ever-increasing online buzz, I think you can understand why we believe that the ‘Divergent’ series is becoming very special,” Feltheimer said.

    Not only do “Divergent” fans have a trailer to look forward to, Feltheimer also teased a potential fifth film based on “Divergent” author Veronica Roth’s newly released, bestselling book “Four: A Divergent Collection.” “We certainly hope so,” Feltheimer said of a potential fifth installment, which would delve into lead male character Tobias Eaton/Four’s future in the Divergent faction hierarchy. Lions Gate previously confirmed an adaption of Roth’s third book “Allegiant" will be split into two parts with March 2016 and March 2017 release dates.

    Woodley and her co-star Theo James (Four) last spoke about the coming film during the “Divergent” Blu-ray/DVD release launch at San Diego Comic-Con in July. “This is what you’ll be seeing,” Woodley told Buzzfeed of her character’s Tris Prior’s shorter 'do in the second film.

    “There’s a huge train sequence, which is this massive fight with Tris and Four and about 40 people. There’s also some amazing stuff when Tris is being forced to go through the Fear Landscapes with Jeanine [Kate Winslet],” James teased of the feature. “It’s so much bigger and has all these rich themes of trust and betrayal and a love story between two people that you haven’t seen in films of this nature before.”

    “Insurgent” hits theaters March 20, 2015.

    Calling his settlement with the Minnesota Vikings an opportunity "to do a lot of good for a lot of people," Chris Kluwe announced his fight with the team is over.

    The Vikings and Kluwe's attorney Clayton Halunen announced Tuesday morning that they had reached a settlement to resolve the former punter's allegations of homophobic behavior by the team. It put the issue to rest 7½ months after Kluwe first published his allegations and avoids the prospect of a lengthy legal battle.

    The Vikings had initially announced a $100,000 contribution to charities that support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender causes, and they will make additional contributions to five LGBT-friendly charities over the next five years. The team will also enhance sensitivity training that is already required throughout the organization.

    The parties did not announce the financial terms of the settlement, but Kluwe said he will not receive any money.

    "Everyone knows the numbers we've been talking about. It's a substantial commitment to LGBT causes," said Halunen, who had initially asked for a $1 million charitable donation.

    Australian actor Joel Edgerton has said he “empathizes” with critics of his new film, Exodus: Gods and Kings, who accuse director Ridley Scott of “whitewashing” African history in the casting of the biblical epic.

    Edgerton stars in Exodus as the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses the Great. The film also stars light-skinned actors Christian Bale as Moses, Aaron Paul as Joshua and Sigourney Weaver as Ramses' mother, Tuya.

    That has outraged many online, with critics accusing director Scott and the film's producers of “cinematic colonialism” by casting white actors to play African figures. A Twitter campaign, #boycottexodusmovie, is calling on fans to boycott the would-be blockbuster, which Fox is releasing in the U.S. on Dec. 12.

    The writer David Dennis Jr. blatantly calls Scott's casting of Exodus “racist,” pointing out, “Not only are all the main characters white, but the servants, thieves and assassins are played by Africans.”

    Speaking to Australian broadcaster SBS on the closing night of the Melbourne International Film Festival, Edgerton addressed the boycott, saying he was “sensitive to it and I do, I do understand and empathize with that position.” He added that as an actor, “it's not my job to make those decisions...I got asked to do a job, and it would have been very hard to say no to that job."

    Critics of the Exodus casting see it as a part of consistent whitewashing of African stories and history by Hollywood. The biblical story of Exodus, the Old Testament tale of how Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt and into the promised land, has previously been told in the 1956 Cecil B. DeMille classic The Ten Commandments. That film also starred two white actors: Charlton Heston as Moses and Yul Brynner as Ramses.

    TMZ just posted frightening video of actor and motorcycle enthusiast Chuck Zito sounding off on War Machine, in which Chuck appears to imply that War Machine deserved to beat Christy Mack if she cheated — and that he'd do the same thing.

    Jonathan "War Machine" Koppenhaver — a famous mixed martial artist — was arrested on August 15 after his ex girlfriend, adult film star Christy Mack, tweeted that he was responsible for the 18 broken bones in her face, a broken rib, a broken nose, and a ruptured liver.

    Chuck is an actor and stuntman who once headed the New York chapter of the Hells Angels motorcycle club. As an actor, the 61-year-old played Chucky Pancamo on HBO's Oz and Frankie Diamonds in FX's Sons of Anarchy.

    When TMZ talked to Chuck about the War Machine case, Chuck said, "He just overreacted, I guess. Because if my girl was banging somebody, I'd be doing the same thing."

    He then punches his palm three times in gestures as he describes the plan of action.

    Hollywood badass Chuck Zito is deeply remorseful for saying he would clobber a girlfriend who cheated on him and he says in actuality he would go nuclear on any guy who attacks a woman.

    The Sons of Anarchy star went on TMZ Live to explain his comments about War Machine's brutal attack on ex-GF Christy Mack.

    Zito's anguish over his comments is palpable.

    It seems Zito has even quit Twitter over the backlash from the “haters”.
