‘Big Bang Theory’ Leads Taking Pay Cuts So Female Co-Stars Can Get Raises

The five leading stars of CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory” are apparently taking pay cuts so that two of their longtime castmates can get raises.

Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg ― who have all been on the show since Season 1’s premiere in 2007 ― reportedly agreed to take $ 100,000 pay cuts from their $ 1 million per episode salaries for upcoming Seasons 11 and 12 to increase the salaries of Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, Variety reported, citing multiple sources.

Bialik ― who earned four Emmy nominations for her role as Sheldon’s girlfriend, Amy ― and Rauch have become key characters in the show since joining in Season 3. The two currently make around $ 200,000 per episode, according to Variety, and are gearing up for contract negotiations this week.

With the money from their co-stars, the two could each bump up to around $ 450,000 per episode for a 48-episode deal. However, Deadline reported they may be seeking parity with their co-stars.

Last month, The Hollywood Reporter revealed the original five actors will each be earning $ 1 million per episode for the final two seasons of the CBS series, which is television’s No. 1 comedy for the key demographic of 18-to-49-year-olds.

Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco first inked their $ 1 million per episode contracts with Warner Bros. Television back in 2014, making them TV’s current highest-paid comedy actors. In its ninth season, the show averaged 20 million viewers per episode.

Reps for Parsons, Galecki, Cuoco, Nayyar and Helberg were not immediately available to comment.

Chelsea Handler Leads Women’s March at Sundance With Kristen Stewart

Comedian Chelsea Handler, a member of the event organizing committee, led the march, which began in the Wasatch Brew Pub parking lot and ended a few blocks away with a rally in the Flagpole parking lot.

“Playing It Cool” Has Two Leads With Chemistry

Movie Review – Jackie K Cooper
“Playing It Cool” (Voltage Pictures)

Sometimes you get a movie with a silly premise, and all the information about the movie makes it look like a dud. Then you see the movie and the chemistry between the two leads is so good it almost makes the movie worthwhile. Note I said almost.

“Playing It Cool” is about a screenwriter (Chris Evans) who is tasked with writing a romantic comedy. He has a difficult time fulfilling the assignment as he has never been in love and doesn’t really think love exists. That is until he meets an immensely likeable woman (Michelle Monaghan) at a party and is immediately smitten. Sparks fly between them as they first touch hands.

Problem is she has a boyfriend (Ioan Gruffudd), and wants to stay true to him. However our hero talks her into going out on a “friend” date. And then another one. His friends (Luke Wilson, Aubrey Plaza, Martin Starr and Topher Grace) try to warn him away from this woman but he persists until she tells him they have to stop.

The story goes on from there and even if it is predictable I am not going to reveal all here. It is enough to say he imagines a variety of scenarios wherein they might be reunited and the audience gets to see them all. They aren’t very imaginative but it does break up the monotony of the film.

Chris Evans has a strong fan base because of his “Captain America” role and they doubtlessly will watch this movie just because he is in it. Still it has to be said this is not one of his strongest performances. Monaghan has been in quite a few movies and has never made a real impact on Hollywood. In this film she is adequately charming but nothing to write home about. Still when these two are on screen together they do have chemistry and you do root for them as a couple to make it.

The supporting cast is competent but they do not have strongly written roles. Topher Grace’s is the most detailed but the audience never feels they know him. Plaza gets the most attention of this group but a little of her personality in this movie goes a long way.

The movie is rated R for profanity and adult situations.

Apart Evans and Monaghan are mildly entertaining but when they are together it is movie magic one more time. Their chemistry makes the movie better than it has any right to be.

I scored “Playing It Cool” a chilly 4 out of 10.

Sexual Harassment At Comic-Con Leads To Call For New Convention Policy

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Amid the costumes and fantasy of this weekend’s Comic-Con convention, a group of young women drew widespread attention to a very real issue — allegations of sexual harassment at the annual pop-culture festival.

Geeks for CONsent, founded by three women from Philadelphia, gathered nearly 2,600 signatures on an online petition supporting a formal anti-harassment policy at Comic-Con. Conventioneers told Geeks for CONsent they had been groped, followed and unwillingly photographed during the four-day confab.

Meanwhile, what Geeks for CONsent and others regarded as blatant objectification continued on the convention floor. Scantily clad women were still used as decoration for some presentations, and costumed women were described as “vaguely slutty” by panel moderator Craig Ferguson. When Dwayne Johnson made a surprise appearance to promote “Hercules,” 10 women in belly-baring outfits stood silently in front of the stage for no apparent reason.

Groping, cat-calling and other forms of sexual harassment are a larger social issue, not just a Comic-Con problem. And many comics and movies still portray women as damsels in distress. But Geeks for CONsent says things are amplified at the festival, where fantasy plays such a large role.

“It’s a separate, more specific issue within the convention space,” said Rochelle Keyhan, 29, director of Geeks for CONsent. “It’s very much connected (to the larger problem) and it’s the same phenomena, but manifesting a little more sexually vulgar in the comic space.”

“Comic-Con has an explicit Code of Conduct that addresses harassing and offensive behavior,” said Comic-Con International in a statement on Sunday to The Associated Press. “This Code of Conduct is made available online as well as on page two of the Events Guide that is given to each attendee.”

Earlier, Comic-Con spokesman David Glanzer told the Los Angeles Times that “anyone being made to feel uncomfortable at our show is obviously a concern for us.” He said additional security was in place this year, including an increased presence by San Diego Police.

Keyhan’s focus on Comic-Con began with a movement launched in her hometown called HollabackPhilly, to help end public harassment against women and members of the LGBT community. She and her colleagues developed a comic book on the subject in hopes of engaging middle- and high-school students, which is what brought them to Comic-Con.

Costuming, or cosplay, is a big part of the popular convention, with male and female fans dressing as their favorite characters, regardless of gender. A man might wear a Wonder Woman outfit, and a woman could dress as Wolverine. Keyhan and her colleagues — all in costume — carried signs and passed out temporary tattoos during the convention that read, “Cosplay does not equal consent.”

In addition to the existing Comic-Con’s Code of Conduct, Geeks for CONsent wants the 45-year-old convention to adopt a clearly stated policy and says staff members should to be trained to handle sexual harassment complaints.

“It makes it feel safer for the person being harassed to report it and also for bystanders who witness (inappropriate behavior),” Keyhan said.

Toni Darling, a 24-year-old model who was dressed as Wonder Woman on Saturday, said the issue goes way beyond Comic-Con.

“I don’t think it has anything to do with cosplay or anything to do with costumes,” she said. “People who are the kind of people who are going to take a photo of you when you’re not looking from behind are going to do that regardless, whether you’re in costume or not.”

Still, she’d like to see an advisory in the Comic-Con program against surreptitious photography, and a clearer statement from Geeks for CONsent. She found some fans were afraid to take photos, even when she was posing at a booth on the showroom floor.

“The kind of behavior that needs to be modified,” she said, “is somebody taking a photo of you bent over while you’re signing a print.”

Pastor Leads Fastest Sunday Service Ever So He Can Catch 49ers Game

You could say Pastor Tim Christensen is a pretty dedicated fan of Jesus Christ, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t still have room in his heart for the San Francisco 49ers.

When his scheduled 11 a.m. worship service at Gold Hill Lutheran Church in Butte, Montana coincided with the 49ers vs. Panthers kick off time, he was left with a theological quandary. One that he refused to fumble.

At a pace that would make any running back proud, Pastor Christensen led the quickest service ever recorded for his congregation, and, upon finishing, yanked back his robe to reveal a red San Francisco tee.

Luckily for Pastor Christensen, the 49ers won handily on Sunday. No Hail Mary pass needed.
