While this kind of behaviour is wrong under any circumstances, there’s an extra-thick layer of gross in just thinking about latter-day walrus Depardieu pulling this crap. The Dune reference is apt. Apparently others in the French industry have admitted that, not unlike elsewhere, it was laughed off and tolerated because it’s just the way things worked, and particularly because Depardieu’s importance was so overblown.

Johnathan Majors has been found guilty. https://deadline.com/2023/12/jonatha...al-1235668429/

What a downfall... 2023 was looking like to be a big year for him. There was a point last year when he had trailers for 3 films playing in theatres... He had an award-worthy performance in Magazine Dreams that may never get a release. Oh well.

Deadline reports that Disney quickly fires Majors. How long until Meagan Good also drops him?

Yeah what a fall from grace he's had in 2023.

Such a waste of amazing acting talent. I hope he's able to get some counseling and control his anger.

And would counseling not be a good idea for him when he's out (assuming he goes in?)

I guess I missed the "amazing" talent in the Antman movie...

Well you can't see Samuel L Jackson's talent in Secret Invasion either. Good thing they both have other projects out there to view.

Unless the judge is looking to make an example of him, that seems unlikely.

I know the media interchanges prison and jail frequently to my despair, but I don't believe that NY sends misdemeanor cases to prison. Usually a local or county jail of some sort. Picking nits I know, but there is definitely a difference between that and something like Rikers.

It was always my understanding (perhaps wrongly) that jail is for holding suspects prior to conviction and sentencing, and prison is where inmates are sent once convicted and sentenced, be it low security or high.

Jail is used for convicted inmates as well if their sentence is short and generally non-violent.

That is incorrect. There are some states that can sentence you to prison for a misdemeanor. But those are few and far between. Nearly every other state will sentence you to jail (county, city, etc) for misdemeanor convictions. I checked and NY is not one of those states, so he will be sentenced to jail, not prison.

None of these really surprise me anymore...except some that have not been accused yet.

He also seems to have the Channing Tatum Potatohead thing going on, according to that photo.

Will Stallone save a spot for Majors in the next EXPENDABLES movie? And can't he take over some of those straight-to-streaming action franchises after his sentence is served? Just considering...

Sexually assaulting someone on the set of Fast and Furious is damn near incestuous!

Paula Abdul is suing So you think you can dance producer and judge and former American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe for sexual assault.




These alleged incidents happened many years ago.

Also, Lythgoe is slated to return as an on camera judge on So you think you can dance later in 2024.
