Amandla Stenberg Learned of Trump’s Election Win From Actor in Nazi Uniform: ‘I Started Sobbing’

Amandla Stenberg heard the news of Donald Trump‘s presidency from a shocking source.

The 18-year-old actress is gracing the cover of Teen Vogue‘s Icons Issue. And in the story, she opened to Janelle Monáe about her experiences with racism in and out of Hollywood.

Stenberg was on set of her upcoming movie Where Hands Touch — where she plays a biracial girl growing up during the Holocaust — the night of the election.

“An actor playing a Nazi soldier took out his phone to refresh the news and announced that Trump was president,” Stenberg told Monáe. “I was actually seeing this come out of the mouth out of an actor dressed in a Nazi uniform.”

“Immediately, I excused myself because I felt like I couldn’t breathe anymore,” she added. “I started sobbing. It was shocking. It made me really question how we could reach a point where our country is so divided.”

Stenberg recounted how the director of the film, Amma Asante, found her on set and offered words of comfort — telling Stenberg that “progress is like a coil you have to go down in order to circle back up again. That’s how it’s worked throughout history. That’s how it will continue to work.”

The Hunger Games actress also opened up about getting rid of her iPhone to make sure she’s in the right mental state.

“Amid all of the chaos in the world right now, it’s so important that everyone actively works to preserve their mental health so that we’re able to heal and create change,” Stenberg said. “I got rid of my iPhone, and that was essential in preserving my mental health. Now I have a flip phone that I just use to talk to people and hear their actual voices.”

‘Harry Potter’ Actor Jim Tavaré Breaks Neck In Horrific Head-On Car Crash

Harry Potter” actor Jim Tavaré, best known for his role as the Leaky Cauldron innkeeper and the franchise’s resident hunchback, is recovering in intensive care after a serious car crash.

Tavaré, whose character first appeared in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” was involved in a head-on collision Monday that left him with a broken neck, 15 broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken leg and fractured breastbones, according to an update on his Facebook page. No further details about where the accident occurred were released.

His wife Laura broke the news of the accident on Facebook with a photo of a bruised Tavaré in the ICU lying in a hospital bed giving a thumbs up. 

“This is Laura here,” she wrote in the photo caption. “Now that his family have been informed, Jim has asked me to let you all know that he was involved in a serious car accident yesterday, a head on collision. He’s currently in ICU intensive care.”

“He’s had 2 blood transfusions so far and is about to go in for his first surgery. This is for real, not a movie role,” she continued. “Please hold some good thoughts for him as he fights his way out of this.”

Apart from the “Harry Potter” franchise, the 54-year-old British actor, who lives in Los Angeles, is also a comedian who co-wrote and starred on the BAFTA-winning TV series “The Sketch Show.”

Let’s raise a glass of firewhisky to a speedy recovery.

Citizen of the World: Actor Reda Kateb on ‘Django’, Animal Vibrations and Problematic Modern Leaders

2017-02-11-1486815289-1313331-201714390_Django_copyright_Roger_Arpajou_klein1.jpg

Kahlil Gibran wrote “You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” And perhaps it’s appropriate to quote Gibran’s The Prophet when talking about French-born actor Reda Kateb, who embodies at once cultures as diverse as Algerian, Czech and Italian.

If you are not familiar with Kateb’s name yet, you will be. I believe he’s about to become the most sought-after actor in world cinema.

But back to generosity and Kateb. The two seem to go hand in hand, as the actor dedicated his time and energy to answering thoughtfully each and every question posed by a roomful of journalists who simply couldn’t get enough of his wisdom. Kateb gave of himself, on a sunny but frigid afternoon, when one could tell he’d been doing press all day for Étienne Comar’s Django — this year’s opening film at the Berlinale. Coming back from a break just outside, on the balcony of the suite in the Scandic Hotel, he excused himself by saying “if I give twice the same answer you’ll forgive me,” clearly tired from the day-long junket he’d been a part of. Yet once the questions started, Kateb was there, in the moment, present and giving, never holding back, always being sincere. And he never repeated himself.

Watching Django, I realized Kateb’s Django Reinhardt redefined courage for me. His languid, truthful way of embodying the legendary Gypsy guitarist redefines an iconic figure and from now on, I’ll never be able to listen to Django’s music again without seeing Kateb’s face. That face, so understatedly yet powerfully handsome, the way he smiles, also lacking any sign of self-importance, Kateb embodies true beauty. His sultry gaze and quiet passion, the kind you feel bubbling just below the surface, make Django irresistible and from a character in a film and a musical figure in our collective imagination, Kateb turns him into a real man right in front of our eyes.

There is also a playfulness to Kateb that sneaked out a couple of times during the interview, a break from his otherwise disciplined persona. At the start, he pulled a bright red guitar pick out of his pocket and started twirling it around in his fingers. When he accidentally dropped it, while his translator turned his French answers into English, he reached down to the floor and searched for it under the table. It made me giggle while I transcribed his thoughts later, giggle out loud at the thought of him searching for his red guitar pick, with the help of a journalist sitting to his left.

Interviewing Kateb made me wish my work for the day could end there. You know, when you’ve experienced the best and nothing could possibly top it? That’s how I felt and I don’t remember actually walking back to my hotel from the Scandic. But I remember crossing gaze with a few of my fellow human beings and finding new beauty in them.

When a film, a star, a meeting can do that, I say it’s cinematic magic.

2017-02-11-1486815341-7151375-201714390_4.jpg

What is it like to do press all day? Does it get to be very surreal at this level?

Reda Kateb: Not surreal, but one tends to get tired.

How do you approach a genius that actually lived and still make the part your own?

Kateb: Right from the moment I read the script, and I knew very little about Django, I felt that I will have to look for a character that was much bigger than me, and almost bigger than life. Exactly like the great characters that you get in theater who are in a way some concentration of humanity. They are very full and very complex. And this is how I felt with Django. So it really was a challenge for me to understand who this character was that I will have to play. It was like having to go up a mountain really. The preparation work lasted for a year and when Etienne Comar was about to start shooting I required a little more time in order to prepare better because I didn’t feel I was ready. When the shoot started lets say maybe the first week, I was trying to adjust and find out how I was going to do, but then after a week it was perfectly OK and I was ready to let go. When I put on my costume, I was Django.

Was it difficult to communicate in a different language in this film? Your language is acting whereas in this film you are using music so much to communicate what you are feeling, and who you are.

Kateb: I have a musical relationship with acting. And this for each part, I really find it has to do with the rhythm you give and it’s some kind of music, and I absolutely love acting in another language. Last year I shot a film with Wim Wenders where I spoke in Somali and obviously I absolutely ignore the Somalian language so every morning and every night I was learning my lines, phonetically. My approach of the language was not any more something that had to do with the meaning of language, it was an approach that had to do with the vibrations, with the way the voice can actually be an instrument. I felt that when you are liberated from the meaning, you are as close as possible to the animal vibration that you feel when you speak. In a way we actors we do some kind of interpretation with an instrument, which is the voice, and my real preparation for Django was the musical preparation that lasted a year and this really was my gateway to the character.

How well did you learn to play and how much of it is in the film?

Kateb: The preparation lasted for one year so I played every day and during that year I shot two other films but I always had my guitar with me in my dressing room and I was playing, I was doing my scales. I started with simple tunes like some Bob Dylan music and then little by little I started playing with this three-fingers technique and I did exercises with rhythm. This is what I worked on for the film. What was most important for me was that other musicians watching the film should believe that I was the one playing. As I also wanted audiences of Gypsy origin to really believe that I was a Gypsy when they would watch the film. This was my challenge and what I concentrated on.

When we see guitar playing, is it always you doing it or is it a double?

Kateb: For the close-ups they are the hands of someone called Christophe Lartilleux but for any kind of wider shot it’s really me.

Are you interested in the obvious political resonance of the film?

Kateb: Anytime I do a film I need to agree with the viewpoint, the stance of the film. To me the film was a way of paying homage to the grand icon of Gypsy music and also to the Gypsy community. It was also speaking of a specific period and it was in 2016 in France that the genocide of the Gypsy people was recognized so in a way it was my opportunity to take part in telling a history that was not necessarily in the textbooks. You can also see the film as the story of a family of refugees who would need to cross a lake in order to survive and obviously if were to see what this lake could be nowadays it’s quite obviously the Mediterranean. It was for me important that the film not be merely some kind of historical postcard but to resonate with the bigger picture in our days. The film is not a statement, it does not deliver any kind of message. It is more a work of art that actually puts forth emotions and could enable the viewer to feel and maybe then start thinking.

2017-02-11-1486815380-9851157-201714390_2.jpg

It’s inevitable to watch the film and draw comparisons with what is happening around the world, in the USA and specifically in France. Would you like to share your opinion about what happen in France if Marine Le Pen wins?

Kateb: How can I say this. First of all, I feel more like a citizen of the world, and I don’t want to come here and deliver some kind of view on French politics. I think it’s a global movement. In a way we are sort of going backwards. The world is becoming more right-wing orientated and it seems that people are in some sort of need for strong or dictatorial political figures. This is something that I can see, like many of us, and something that I find rather worrying — as many of us do. But I don’t think the question is whether it will be Marine Le Pen or François Fillon, I think the question is more about — and this is something that has lingered in my mind for a long time — is it a particular time that creates the great political figures or do great political figures exist and then are they going to shape the times, the era? I think it’s the first that actually happens. There are moments in history that call for a certain type of figure and I think our times call for the type of more right-wing dictatorial figures. But having said that I think it’s important to have a film that actually pays homage to a people without borders, who know no frontier, people who in a way are not money-oriented, who live their lives almost poetically and artistically, and I think this kind of film in our days is extremely necessary. I think it’s a strong symbol to have it open the Berlinale.

Django, first refusing to play for the Nazis, then accepting. How do you relate?

Kateb: I imagine that some right-wing people may have bought some tickets to my films and as such, contributed to the funding of the films. Actually I doubt they are very numerous because the films I’ve made are not likely to interest these kind of people, but anyway I think like Django, if I were performing in a theater I certainly wouldn’t ask the people what are their political views. Anybody can actually decide to buy a ticket to see a show or a film or to buy a record. You can’t prevent people from coming to see you. But as an artist you can decide to align with, or to support some politician or some political party, and then you have to realize that this may have some consequences. This is where the line is drawn. As a citizen I would certainly like people like Marine Le Pen not to exist, but the question about political commitment of artists is a question that you should really ask yourself. I did a lot of research about how artists behaved during the Nazi occupation in France, and some of them like Django just carried on, kept doing their jobs, as did bus drivers, because they needed to survive. Others were actually far more involved with the Nazis. They went and shared dinners or lunches with them or did publicity, like Fernandel did on Radio Paris. This is where you can draw the line between what it is to carry on doing your job and collaborating.

But it’s always difficult to judge people, to imagine what you could have been doing in this difficult period. I know for myself I certainly would not have been able to — even if was something that would help my career — collaborate with this kind of regime.

Actor Kumail Nanjiani Chronicles Flier Who De-Pants Until He Deplanes

There’s an unspoken decorum in airplane cabins that keeps all passengers relatively comfortable. Some individuals, however, don’t think the rules of common courtesy apply to them.

Comedian Kumail Nanjiani, costar of the HBO series “Silicon Valley,” was recently seated near one such deplorable, who decided that a 5 1/2-hour flight is the appropriate time to strip down to your skivvies and spread eagle.

“I was on a plane a couple of days ago,” Nanjiani tweeted Wednesday. “A guy took off his jeans and lounged around in his boxers with his feet up on the wall.”

The culprit, Nanjiani later clarified, was seated at the front of the plane, “so if you walked onto the plane, you would be greeted by this defiant fleshy V.”

The man reportedly took his pants off within the first 20 minutes of the flight and had his feet up for four hours before a flight attendant asked him to put his bare legs back on the ground.

After a “40-second stare down” between the man and the attendant, the man complied, according to Nanjiani.

But only for a moment.

Nanjiani said that, after five minutes, the man thrust one foot back up against the wall, “like a fist raised against an unjust sky.”

Pants (or lack thereof) aside, Nanjiani also claimed that this man was rude to airline staff.

The man stood in front of the gate during pre-boarding for 30 minutes and, at one point, said, “I can’t wait to get in there and get my pants off,” as people in wheelchairs rolled around him, Nanjiani tweeted.

The actor also said that the man slammed his fist on the armrest if he failed to get the flight attendant’s attention during the flight.

During his tweet storm, Nanjiani called attention to the colored lights that can be seen near the man’s boxer-clad crotch, which made some of his Twitter followers believe he was on a Virgin Airlines flight.

However, they weren’t on a Virgin aircraft and those lights weren’t from the plane. The light ― which, according to Nanjiani’s video evidence, flashed various colors ― was from the man’s USB charger.

“Ppl think it’s Virgin. It’s not! His USB charger made disco lights the whole time, bathing his thighs in reds, blues, greens,” the actor explained.

Unfortunately for Nanjiani and his fellow passengers, this story did not have a happy ending, and justice was never served. 

The bare-thighed man waited until the plane had already started its descent to stand up, “in defiance of decency & lighted seatbelt signs,” and put his pants back on.

Nanjiani was understandably perplexed when he saw that the pantless perpetrator suffered no consequences after forcing people to deal with his “hairy thigh V.” 

The actor did find a little irony within the whole ordeal, specifically in the man’s choice of movie.

When fellow comedy writer Dan Harmon wondered (tweeted) whether this pants-defying man was a villain or hero, Nanjiani was quick to explain the unwritten rules of air travel.

‘7th Heaven’ Actor Stephen Collins’ Divorce Finalized

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Veteran television actor Stephen Collins and his wife of nearly 30 years have finalized their divorce, an acrimonious breakup that revealed the former “7th Heaven” star had inappropriate contact with underage girls decades ago.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael J. Convey on Friday approved a divorce judgment that ended Collins’ marriage to Faye Grant, who first disclosed molestation allegations against her estranged husband in court filings. Collins acknowledged he acted inappropriately with three underage girls in incidents that occurred between 1973 and 1994. The revelation cost Collins several roles after audio of a 2012 therapy session in which he discussed the incidents was posted by celebrity website TMZ last year. Grant recorded the session but denies leaking the audio to the website.

The pair’s divorce judgment calls for all but two copies of the recording to be destroyed. Both copies will be retained for 10 years by attorney Shawn Holley, who represents many celebrities, including Lindsay Lohan and Justin Bieber.

Collins or Grant can only use the recordings if they need to defend themselves from a civil or criminal case, the judgment states.

The judgment also states that Collins will not have to pay his wife any future spousal support payments, however Grant will receive some of Collins’ pension plan and investment income each month.

A divorce trial was scheduled to begin next month. The trial would have focused on the financial fallout from the release of the therapy session audio and would have divided the pair’s assets.

Grant and Collins and their attorneys reached a settlement on Friday after negotiating for several days at a downtown Los Angeles courthouse.

They both said during Friday’s hearing that the marriage was irretrievably broken and could not be fixed through further counseling.

Collins filed for divorce in May 2012 and the case received little attention until the molestation allegations became public.

The actor acknowledged in an interview with Katie Couric that he molested one girl and engaged in sexual misconduct with two other underage girls. He denied he was a pedophile and said he has controlled his urges since 1994.

Grant included the molestation accusations in divorce proceedings and authorities in New York and Los Angeles have investigated the claims, but Collins has not been charged.

The incidents occurred between 1973 and 1994, according to a statement Collins released to People magazine in December.

“Forty years ago, I did something terribly wrong that I deeply regret,” Collins wrote. “I have been working to atone for it ever since.”

How David Oyelowo Sold His Father on the Idea of Becoming an Actor | Oprah Prime | OWN

David Oyelowo, 38, stars as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the film Selma. Born in England and raised in his parents’ native Nigeria, David earned a scholarship to the distinguished London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts and went on to become the first black actor to play an English king at the Royal Shakespeare Company. Still, David says his father wasn’t totally supportive when he first told him he wanted to be an actor after “sneakily applying for drama school.”

“Being an artist, being an actor for a Nigerian family, is bizarre,” he says. “This is not a proper job.” In the video above, David shares the key argument that changed his father’s mind.

White House Says ‘Sophisticated Actor’ Hacked Sony, Declines To Blame North Korea

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says evidence shows the hack against Sony Pictures was carried out by a “sophisticated actor” with “malicious intent.”

But spokesman Josh Earnest is declining to blame North Korea. Earnest says he doesn’t want to get ahead of investigations by the Justice Department and the FBI.

A U.S. official says federal investigators have linked North Korea to the attack. The official spoke on condition of anonymity earlier this week.

Sony has canceled the Christmas Day release of “The Interview” after many theaters said they would hold off on showing the film.

Threats have been made against theaters planning to show the film, which is a comedy about a plot to assassinate North Korea’s leader.

Nicholas Brendon, ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Actor, Arrested In Idaho

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An actor best known for his role in the television series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is apologizing for actions that led to his arrest in a hotel lobby in southwest Idaho.

Nicholas Brendon, who played Xander Harris on the hit show that ran from 1997 to 2003, said Monday on Facebook that he erred by mixing prescribed pain medication and alcohol. “The result was embarrassing and unacceptable,” he wrote. “I intend to seek appropriate treatment and therapy for my medical ailments as well as my emotional demons.”

He said the physical pain came from a cyst behind his kneecap, but he didn’t elaborate on the cause of the emotional demons.

Brendon was participating in the Tree City Comic Con at a Boise expo center where fans could have a photo taken with him for $ 40 and get his autograph for $ 30.

Boise officers took the 43-year-old actor into custody after responding to a disturbance around 9:30 p.m. Friday. Brendon faces misdemeanor charges of resisting officers and malicious injury to property.

Police say Brendon showed signs of being intoxicated and refused to remain seated while officers spoke with witnesses. Hotel officials say Brendon broke a decorative dish and they want to press charges. Authorities in a statement Saturday said Brendon was booked in the Ada County Jail and released after posting bond.

“During this difficult time, I appreciate understanding as I pursue rehabilitation — and I value support as I earn redemption with my family, friends, and fans,” Brendon wrote in the statement confirmed as his by his booking agent, Kahmeela Adams, in an email to The Associated Press.

This was the first year for the Tree City Comic Con that besides Brendon drew an array writers, illustrators and other actors, including John Rhys-Davies who was Gimli in “Lord of the Rings,” Nichelle Nichols who played Lt. Uhura in “Star Trek: The Original Series,” and Verne Troyer, who played Mini Me in “Austin Powers.”

Event organizers didn’t return a phone call from the AP on Monday.

Eli Wallach Dead: ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ Actor Dies At 98

WASHINGTON, June 25 (Reuters) – Eli Wallach, an early practitioner of method acting who made a lasting impression as the scuzzy bandit Tuco in “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, died on Tuesday at the age of 98, the New York Times reported.

Wallach appeared on the big screen well into his 90s in Roman Polanski’s “The Ghost Writer” and Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street” sequel and other films.

“It’s what I wanted to do all my life,” Wallach said of his work in an interview in 2010.

Having grown up the son of Polish Jewish immigrants in an Italian-dominated neighborhood in New York, Wallach might have seemed an unlikely cowboy, but some of his best work was in Westerns.

Many critics thought his definitive role was Calvera, the flamboyant, sinister bandit chief in “The Magnificent Seven”. Others preferred him in “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” as Tuco, who was “the ugly”, opposite Clint Eastwood in Sergio Leone’s classic spaghetti Western.

Years later, Wallach said strangers would recognize him and start whistling the distinctive theme from the film.

Wallach graduated from the University of Texas, where he picked up the horseback-riding skills that would serve him well in later cowboy roles, and studied acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse Actors Studio before World War Two broke out.

DYNAMIC ACTOR, PROLIFIC CAREER

“Wallach is the quintessential chameleon, effortlessly inhabiting a wide range of characters, while putting his inimitable stamp on every role,” the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which gave him an honorary Oscar in 2010, wrote in a profile on its website.

After serving as an Army hospital administrator during the war, he found work on the New York stage and took classes at the Actor’s Studio, which used Method acting in which actors draw on personal memories and emotions to flesh out a role.

He appeared in “This Property Is Condemned” and ended up marrying the show’s leading lady, Anne Jackson – a marriage that also led to several stage and screen collaborations.

Wallach made a name on Broadway with roles in two Tennessee Williams’ works, “Camino Real” and “The Rose Tattoo,” for which he won a Tony in 1951, as well as a two-year run in “Mr. Roberts.”

His first movie was another Williams work, “Baby Doll” in 1956. Other major films included “How the West Was Won”, “Mystic River”, “The Holiday”, “Lord Jim” and “The Misfits” – in which he starred with Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe with John Huston directing an Arthur Miller script – and “The Godfather Part 3.”

Despite the notable movies, Wallach said it was his portrayal of the villain Mr. Freeze on the “Batman” television show of the 1960s that generated the most fan mail.

Wallach titled his autobiography “The Good, the Bad and Me: In My Anecdotage”. He and his wife lived in New York and had three children.

The New York Times said his death had been confirmed by his daughter. (Reporting by Bill Trott in Washington; Additional reporting by Eric M. Johnson in Seattle; Editing by Clarence Fernandez and Andrew Heavens)

Herb Jeffries Dead: Jazz Singer And Actor Known As ‘The Bronze Buckaroo’ Dies At 100 (VIDEO)

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Herb Jeffries, the jazz singer and actor who performed with Duke Ellington and was known as the “Bronze Buckaroo” in a series of all-black 1930s Westerns, died of heart failure Sunday morning at a Los Angeles hospital. He was 100.

His death was confirmed by Raymond Strait, who worked with Jeffries on his not-yet-published autobiography titled “Color of Love.” With a mellow voice and handsome face, Jeffries became familiar to jazz fans, but segregation in the film industry limited his movie career. He scored a big hit with Ellington as the vocalist on “Flamingo,” recorded in 1940 and later covered by a white singer, the popular vocalist Tony Martin.

Among the other songs he did with Ellington were “There Shall Be No Night” and “You, You Darlin’.”

“The camaraderie in his band was like a bunch of guys in college,” Jeffries recalled in the book “Off the Record: An Oral History of Popular Music.” ”Ellington had a knack for developing talent and stars. … He was more like a father to me than a boss.”

Jeffries has been described as the only black singing cowboy star in Hollywood history and, more recently, after the deaths of Gene Autry, Roy Rogers and others, as the “last of the singing cowboys.”

Sometimes billed as Herbert Jeffrey, he starred in four Westerns aimed at black audiences from 1937 to 1939: “Harlem on the Prairie,” ”Two-Gun Man From Harlem,” ”The Bronze Buckaroo” and “Harlem Rides the Range.”

As The New York Times noted, the low-budget films (produced by a white man, Richard C. Kahn) are “notable less for what’s in them than that they exist at all.”

Jeffries starred as Bob Blake. The films featured his horse Stardusk, the vocal group the Four Tones, and comic relief from prolific character actor Mantan Moreland. Among the songs: “I’m a Happy Cowboy,” ”Get Along Mule” and “(Got the) Payday Blues.”

“The Bronze Buckaroo” was recently revived on a DVD release called “Treasures of Black Cinema.”

Jeffries “did something outrageous, and then rode off into the sunset,” actor-director Mario Van Peebles told People magazine in 2005. “He did us proud.”

Jeffries remained active as a singer into his 80s and 90s, touring and putting out the 1995 CD “The Bronze Buckaroo (Rides Again)” and following it up in 2000, with “The Duke and I.” Among the honors that came his way late in life was a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, dedicated in 2004.

“I don’t believe in age,” Jeffries told The New York Times in 1995, when he was appearing at a local club. “I believe this magnificent thing we have on our shoulders can help you evolve,” he said. “In jazz, we keep going. There’s no such thing as retiring, or being retired, so you never feel unwanted or useless. And that keeps your body vital.”

He was born in Detroit to a racially mixed couple, referring to himself in a 2004 interview with The Oklahoman as “an Italian-looking mongrel with a percentage of Ethiopian blood, which enabled me to get work with black orchestras.”

He lamented the days touring in the South when he was with Earl Hines in the 1930s. Black audiences were made to stand separately off in a corner and not allowed to dance.

“I don’t think anybody was thrilled about the conditions, but if you wanted to advance and develop you couldn’t show anger,” he said.

He made light of the covering of “Flamingo,” too, recalling he joked with Martin that he knew Martin had copied him because “you made the same mistake in the lyrics that I did.”

Jeffries told American Visions, a publication on African-American culture, in 1997 that he was inspired to seek backing for the cowboy movies after seeing a black boy crying because other children with him “wouldn’t let him play cowboy. But in the real West, one of every four cowboys was black.”

But he had no plans to star in them himself, he said, until the search for a suitable actor-singer-rider came up short and he embarked on a crash course on lasso handling and other Western skills.

Strait said Jeffries recently had several surgeries that “just wore him out.” He added that Jeffries “believed in one world and one people and was one of the most generous people I’ve ever met. He was always funding something or doing something for kids.”

Jeffries is survived by his fifth wife, Savannah; three daughters; and two sons.

Jerry Seinfeld Is The Richest Actor In Hollywood Thanks To ‘Seinfeld’ Reruns: Report

The last episode of “Seinfeld” may have aired 16 years ago, but the eponymous star of the Emmy Award-winning sitcom is still said to be raking in the dough thanks to the show.

jerry seinfeld

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld speaks onstage at Spike TV’s ‘Don Rickles: One Night Only’ on May 6, 2014 in New York City.

According to Wealth-X, a Singapore-based company that researches the ultra-rich, Jerry Seinfeld raked in at least $ 400 million last year thanks to syndication deals for “Seinfeld.” (Last year, the Independent reported reruns of the show were estimated to have generated some $ 3 billion since the sitcom went off the air). That, together with more recent projects like 2007’s “The Bee Movie,” have kept the 60-year-old comedian’s coffers amply stocked, Wealth-X said in a media release this week. So stocked, in fact, that the company has dubbed him the richest actor in Hollywood — and possibly the world.

“With an estimated net worth of US$ 820 million… Jerry Seinfeld is laughing all the way to the bank,” Wealth-X wrote in the release.

Second on the company’s “Hollywood and Bollywood Rich List,” which compared the estimated net worth of actors and actresses from the U.S. and India, was Shah Rukh Khan (estimated net worth: $ 600 million), a prolific Bollywood actor. Tom Cruise, Tyler Perry and Johnny Depp also made it into the top five.

Sam Worthington Assault Case To Be Dismissed As ‘Avatar’ Actor Reaches Agreement

NEW YORK (AP) — “Avatar” actor Sam Worthington is on track to get his New York assault case dismissed after being accused of punching a photographer, who also was arrested.

The Australian actor was due in court Thursday. But electronic court records show the misdemeanor case was resolved April 8 with an agreement that it will be dismissed if Worthington stays out of trouble for six months. The Daily News first reported on the development. Worthington’s lawyer, Stacey Richman, confirmed Tuesday the case was set for dismissal. Manhattan prosecutors declined to comment. The arrangement is common for first-time misdemeanor arrests.

Worthington says he was protecting his girlfriend after photographer Sheng Li tried to trip her Feb. 23; Li says Worthington attacked him.

Prosecutors offered the same deal to Li but he turned it down.
