There are new episodes of Sesame Street heading to HBO this Fall….But there will be a few things missing!
A veteran star of “Sesame Street” is saying today’s story is brought to you by the letter “F” — for “fired.”
After 45 years on the beloved kids series, Bob McGrath (who joined the show in 1969) told an audience at Florida Supercon that he “has been graciously let go” from the show, along with Roscoe Orman, who played Gordon, and Emilio Delgado, who played Luis. Also the show will now go from 60 minutes to 30…On Thursday “Sesame Street” tweeted from its official account that the three actors remain “a beloved part of the Sesame family and continue to represent us at public events.”
Justin Bieber got a $5 million offer to perform at a Republican event during the GOP Convention, but turned it down after his manager considered quitting and LeBron James urged him to reject it … sources tell TMZ.
Manager Scooter Braun, a big Hillary Clinton supporter who even held a fundraiser for her at his L.A. home, had big problems with the offer … as did CAA. Scooter and CAA felt, regardless of the representations, this was “100 percent political.”
We’re told the promoter assured Justin’s people the event was “not political” and Justin would not be endorsing Trump or any GOP policies. They Choose Biebs also because he’s Canadian and had to ties to either party….
Imagine telling an entertainment that you can no longer be a character that you created????
Stephen Colbert can no longer play a character he played under his own name on “The Colbert Report” — a clueless, full-of-himself cable news host anymore…. His old company, Comedy Centre claims that they own the intellectual property to the character….. Colbert is now hosting the “Lat Show” for CBS and is clearing doing very well…. Stephen broke the news to the audience on Wednesday saying in part, “with a heavy heart,” that the character is kaput.
