"Scandal" Star Tony Goldwyn Says New Episodes Are 'Outrageous'


ABC/Kelsey McNeal(NEW YORK) -- Fictional President Fitzgerald Grant, portrayed by actor Tony Goldwyn, will return to the Oval Office when Scandal returns Thursday.During last year's winter finale, viewers saw Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington, get kidnapped from her Washington, D.C. apartment. Goldwyn hinted at what fans can expect next."As you know, I can't reveal anything except you will find out more," he teased on Wednesday's Good Morning America. "I can't tell you if you'll find out where she is or what happened but I can tell you that the show takes an entirely new direction tomorrow night and it's crazy. It's really great."Goldwyn credits creator Shonda Rhimes' -- who also created Grey's Anatomy and executive produces How to Get Away with Murder -- for the show's forthcoming shocking plot lines."Shonda, as she has done over and over, just kind of reinvents the show and we go, you know, takes on a different tone. It's pretty outrageous," says Goldwyn."I mean, all of her work and Shonda herself...she just never ceases to amaze me. She's always challenging herself. She's always challenging us and, you know, I'm so happy," Goldwyn continued. "She owns Thursday nights on [ABC] and I'm just so happy to see her being celebrated in the way she is particularly this year."Goldwyn directed the last episode of Scandal. He said the role switch was easy, particularly because he's so close with his co-stars."When you have another person who is an actor you just speak the same language and particularly in Scandal because we're all such close friends, aside from Kerry's merciless teasing of me," he quipped. "We're just really close and intimate so it's a really unique experience for me as a director, you know, to get the chance to kind of have a look at the show from a different lens and connect with, you know, these people I love so much, in a different way."Goldwyn is the grandson of film mogul Samuel Goldwyn -- the "G" in MGM Studios -- and son of film producer Samuel Goldwyn, Jr., who passed away earlier this month at the age of 88. He explained what it's like to carry on his family's legacy in the entertainment business."They were both independent guys who kind of carved their own path and, you know, we were sort of taught never to rest on the laurels of what they'd accomplished and you got to kind of figure it out for yourself and that's the best way to carry on the legacy," Goldwyn said.Scandal returns Thursday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Why Drew Barrymore Is Determined to Be a 'Present Parent'


© Ellen von Unwerth/MORE Magazine(NEW YORK) — After a less than perfect childhood, Drew Barrymore is determined to be a very different parent than her own."I didn’t really have parents, you know?" the 40-year-old mother of two told the February issue of More, already on newsstands. "And therefore the kind of parent I will be is a good, present parent. In a way, maybe that was a detriment to my youth, but it’ll be the biggest asset to my adulthood."By age 14, Barrymore was already living on her own, following two stints in rehab for drug and alcohol abuse, and had written an autobiography about her tumultuous childhood with her parents, actor John Drew Barrymore, the son of film legend John Barrymore, and aspiring actress Jaid Barrymore.Her relationship with her mother has always been complicated, though it seems to be getting better."[I] look after her. That is how I feel good about [our relationship]," she told More.Barrymore, who is mom to Olive, 2, and Frankie, 9 months, has no regrets about stepping back from her acting career since the births of her daughters."I love the beauty industry because even on a workday I can wake up with my kids, go to work, come home, bedtime -- there’s a normal life there," said the founder of Flower Cosmetics. "And it’s exciting when you have to go on a business trip, as opposed to a film where you’re gone for months. I can’t do that right now. As you add more onto your plate, particularly family, things have to fall off, or you won’t be a good parent."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Scientology Documentary Claims Tom Cruise Wiretapped Nicole Kidman's Phone, Chur


ABC/RICK ROWELL(NEW YORK) — Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's well-publicized split after nearly 11 years of marriage is one of the subjects explored in Alex Gibney's HBO documentary, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, and the church has wasted no time denying the claims made in the film.The film, based on Lawrence Wright's 2013 book, delves deeply into the Hollywood couple's breakup, which was shrouded in secrecy.According to Us Weekly, the movie alleges that after Kidman fell in love with Cruise on the set of the 1990 film Days of Thunder, she was labeled a P.T.S. or Potential Trouble Source by the Church because her father was a psychiatrist and Scientologists don't recognize the profession.The tabloid says the documentary claims the Church went to great lengths to keep Cruise in the fold after it feared he had "drifted" away during the marriage. According to Us Weekly, the film alleges that church head David Miscavige sanctioned a plan to "facilitate the breakup" by auditing the actor's mental state and stirring up his paranoia. One church member alleges in the film that Cruise hired a private investigator to wiretap his wife's phones.The Church flatly denies the allegations. "The accusations made in the film are entirely false and alleged without ever asking the Church," Scientology officials said in a statement. The Church said in its statement that "free speech is not a free pass to broadcast or publish false information."Church officials also took to task the people who participated in the film, noting in its statement that "Gibney's sources are the usual collection of obsessive, disgruntled former Church members kicked out as long as 30 years ago for malfeasance, who have a documented history of making up lies about the Church for money."Additionally, the religion launched a Twitter account called Freedom Media Ethics and recently took out an ad in The New York Times criticizing the movie.Cruise's attorney tells E! Online, "Tom Cruise did not hire any private investigator to spy on or investigate Nicole Kidman in any way.  Nor did he ask the Church of Scientology to do that.  Any statement to the contrary is provably false."A rep for Kidman declined to comment on the story.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

New Season of "The Americans" Begins Wednesday Night


Frank Ockenfels/FX(NEW YORK) — The third season of The Americans premieres Wednesday night on FX at 10 p.m. Eastern time.The critically-acclaimed period drama stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as Russian spies living as an average American couple in the U.S.Part of the new season will focus on their characters possibly having to turn their American-born teenage daughter into a spy as well.Russell likes the fact that she not only plays a sleeper agent, but also a mom and wife, too. She told journalists at the recent Television Critics Association winter press tour in California, “The scenes I love the most are those emotional scenes about the complicated marriage. And then you get to go and have a day that's, like, beating dudes up outside.”Rhys agreed, saying, “The scheduling is incredibly athletic in that you have to go from these incredibly intense emotional scenes to putting on sort of wigs and then fighting.”For that reason, Rhys says, there’s no danger of his role becoming “dull.”Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Tiger Woods' Missing Tooth Reappears


Scott Halleran/Getty Images(PHOENIX) — Golf star Tiger Woods has scored a hole in one -- at least when it comes to his mouth. A week after he was sporting a missing front tooth, he was photographed Tuesday in Phoenix -- with his chompers back to normal.Woods' missing tooth made headlines last week, when he appeared to support his girlfriend Lindsey Vonn at an Alpine Skiing World Cup race.While Vonn won her record-breaking 63rd World Cup race without a scratch, the former Olympian said Woods lost a tooth after colliding with a camera man in the finish area."When he was in the finish area a camera man accidentally knocked into him and took out his front tooth," she wrote on Facebook. "He was still in great spirits though and didn't complain once or ask for any special assistance or security."Although some doubted that account, the Woods camp remained tight-lipped about it.The injury also turned out to be short-lived with Woods showing up at Waste Management Phoenix Open Tuesday with his smile intact.No word on if he's wearing a mouth guard next time he hits the slopes to support Vonn.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Ousted "Bachelor" Contestant Juelia Kinney Speaks Out


ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- The latest contestant to be denied a rose from The Bachelor Chris Soules says she is still hopeful about finding love.“I’m definitely going to be looking for love and just really optimistic about it,” Juelia Kinney told ABC News.Kinney, a single mom, had previously opened up to Soules about her split from her husband, saying, "I don't understand how someone can have a child and leave them like that, and leave me."Even though she is no longer on the show, the 30-year-old says the experience gave her time to reflect.“For the first time since my daughter was born I had time to kind of reflect on how I feel and how I was doing,” Kinney told ABC News. “I’m sure any mothers can relate to that.”“Through any experience there’s growing and healing and I think that, personally, it was really good for me,” she said.Kinney was one of three women to be eliminated by Soules, 33, during Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor on ABC.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Rebel Wilson Says Her 'Bigger' Size Is an Asset in Comedy


Universal(SYDNEY) -- Rebel Wilson thinks her supposed "bigger" frame is an asset and something that is in no way holding her back when it comes to starring in comedies like Pitch Perfect 2."Bigger girls do better in comedy," she told Australia's site Daily Life. "I don't know why. Maybe because people find it easier to laugh. It's very hard to laugh at someone who's very attractive, I think."The Sydney, Australia native, 28, continued: "And normally those people don't have a great personality anyway."Wilson is proudest of her Pitch Perfect character Fat Amy and what's she done by using her weight as a positive, not a negative."I took something that was seen as a disadvantage -- no one thinks, if you're fat, that you're going to be an actress and everyone's going to love you -- and turned it into a positive," she said.Furthermore, Wilson has no plans to try and shrink down for Hollywood. She's happy the way she is."I do have these dreams, like, 'What if I just went to a health farm and lost 50 kilos? What would happen? Would it affect my career?' But then I think, that's never going to happen," she added.Fans know Wilson from hits like Bridesmaids, but she eventually would like to follow in the footsteps of Jonah Hill, who moved into more serious roles and earned Oscar nods for his later work."I'll have to go super dark when I go dark. You don't want people to think, 'Is this Fat Amy?'" she said, referring to her Pitch Perfect character.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

"And also my future ex-wife, I'm talking to you, Lupita Nyong'o!"The flirting continued when Nyong'o presented Leto with an MTV Award for Best On-Screen Transformation and he gushed, "That's an award in itself to get that from her.”Meanwhile, another source tells Us Weekly, Nyong'o has split from rapper K'naan, whom she'd reportedly dated last year.

The Truth About Dianne Wiest's New York Apartment Drama


Walter McBride/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Despite what you might have read, a representative for Dianne Wiest said the two-time Oscar winner is not moving out of her New York City apartment for lack of rent money.Wiest quipped to The New York Times that she had been offered so few roles in recent years that she was going to have to move out of her apartment."I have to move out of my apartment soon," the 66-year-old actress told The New York Times Sunday for a story about the new play Rasheeda Speaking, starring Wiest and Tony winner Tonya Pinkins.But her rep told ABC News Monday that her quote "was taken out of context.""She is not moving out of her apartment," he said.Wiest told the Times that since winning Oscars for her work with Woody Allen in Bullets Over Broadway and Hannah and Her Sisters, she has been typecast as "a nice mom and that's it. That’s all that ever came, except in theater."Although her Rasheeda Speaking co-star Pinkins, 52, has been directing and even plans to write a film, Wiest has no similar plans to reinvent herself."I think that if it's meant to happen, it will happen," she said. "Which I guess is a real sign of stupidity."In Rasheeda Speaking, Pinkins, who won a Tony for Jelly's Last Jam, plays Jaclyn, an African-American receptionist in a surgeon's office, and Wiest plays her white co-worker. The show, directed by Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon, begins previews Tuesday.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Phillip Phillips Sues to Get Out of His "American Idol" Contract


Photo by Larry Marano/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Former American Idol winner Phillip Phillips is suing the show's producer, 19 Entertainment, and its affiliated companies to get out of his contract.The singer claims in paperwork that he's been "manipulated" by the company over the past few years."I am very grateful for the opportunities provided to me through appearing on American Idol," Phillips told ABC News in a statement. "The value that the fans and the show have given to my career is not lost on me. However, I have not felt that I have been free to conduct my career in a way that I am comfortable with. I look forward to being able to make my own choices about my career and to being able to make great music and play it for my fans."Phillips, 24, filed a petition with the California Labor Commissioner, claiming that he was obligated to play gigs that did not benefit his career, such as one show he did for free for JetBlue, and that the production company regularly withheld information about his career from him. For example, he claimed he only found out the name of his album when the public did. Phillips also alleged that 19 Entertainment receives as much as 40 percent of any of his endorsement deals.At the core of the petition is the Talent Agencies Act, a California law that states that only licensed talent agents can negotiate gigs for their clients. Phillips' legal team aims to show that the producers were violating the TAA.Phillips' lawyer, Howard King at King Holmes Paterno & Berliner, called the deal "oppressive" and "fatally conflicted." In a statement, he said: "Phillip appreciates the opportunity provided to him by American Idol and always expected the producers to share in the rewards of his subsequent success. However, he never anticipated that the producers would favor their own interests above his career or commit egregious violations of the California's Talent Agencies Act. Thankfully, California has a long history of protecting artists from being victimized by people illegally operating as de facto talent agencies."However, 19 Entertainment stands by the deal."We’re very proud of everything we’ve accomplished together with Phillip, working closely to help nurture his extraordinary talent and advance his career. We have always acted in the best interest of Phillip," a spokesperson for the company told The Hollywood Reporter. "We will vigorously defend ourselves from any baseless claims to the contrary and from any attempt to interfere with our rights and relationships."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Melissa Rivers Files Lawsuit Against Clinic Where Joan Rivers Went into Cardiac


Stephen Lovekin/NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment(NEW YORK) -- Melissa Rivers on Monday filed a lawsuit against the Manhattan clinic where her mother Joan Rivers went into cardiac arrest last year.In a statement, Melissa Rivers called the decision "one of the most difficult decisions I've ever had to make." The suit names Yorkville Endoscopy, its former Medical Director Dr. Lawrence Cohen, anesthesiologist Robert Koniuta and Joan Rivers' personal ENT Dr. Gwen Korovin. Melissa Rivers alleges that her mother authorized the clinic to perform an upper endoscopy on August 28, and that Dr. Cohen allowed Dr. Korovin to be in the procedure room despite the fact that she "should not have been permitted." Korovin then allegedly performed an unauthorized transnasal laryngoscopy on Rivers. The suit claims that Dr. Cohen began the endoscopy after the unauthorized procedure, but at that point, Rivers' vital signs were deteriorating.Korovin, the lawsuit notes, "had no right to perform any medical procedures or render any medical services" at Yorkville Endoscopy.The lawsuit further notes that Cohen used his cell phone to take photos of Rivers while she was under sedation and while her vital signs were dropping. That action, the suit claims, was also unauthorized and was not objected to by any individual in the room. When the doctors became aware of her dropping vital signs, the lawsuit alleges, they attempted to revive her with an ambulatory bag, taking ten minutes before determining that that wouldn't work due to Rivers' obstructed airway. At that point, the doctors realized an emergency procedure called a cricothyrotomy was required, but Korovin, the only one who knew how to perform the procedure, had left the procedure room.Korovin, the lawsuit says, "abandoned her patient, Joan Rivers."The clinic released a statement on Monday saying that it was aware of the filing, but that "it is not appropriate to comment publicly." The clinic say it is continuing to "work with regulatory agencies to ensure compliance with all laws and regulations."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.
