Johnny Depp asked to quit Fantastic Beasts
November 6th, 2020 under Harry Potter, Johnny Depp. [ Comments: none ]


Johnny Depp lost his libel case against The Sun this week over claims of physically abusing his ex-wife, Amber Heard. Today, he announced that he lost more than that. He also lost his job on the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts.

In light of recent events, I would like to make the following short statement.
Firstly, I’d like to thank everybody who has gifted me with their support and loyalty.
I have been humbled and moved by your many messages of love and concern, particularly over the last few days.

Secondly, I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request.
Finally, I wish to say this.

The surreal judgement of the court in the W.K. will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal.

My resolve remains strong and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false. My life and career will not be defined by this moment in time.

Thank you for reading.
Sincerely,

Johnny Depp

Warner Bros says they will recast his role for the third movie that is already in production.

Personally, I think it is a mistake. There is so much to this story, and Depp has done so much good for others.

When it comes to Warner Bros’ decision, I am not surprised. Fans of the series never approved of him in the role. This was their way out.

Miracle Workers strikes gold for its third season
October 23rd, 2020 under Harry Potter, TNT/TBS/TCM. [ Comments: none ]


TBS is bringing back Miracle Workers for a third season, and they are doing a time jump. The first season of the anthology series took place in heaven with Steve Buscemi playing Gd. In the second season, he came down to earth during medieval times, and he was demoted to a sh!t shoveler.

What will he be doing during the third season? TBS says, “Set in the year 1844, the new season of MIRACLE WORKERS will follow an idealistic small-town preacher (Daniel Radcliffe) who teams up with a wanted outlaw (Buscemi) and a liberated prairie wife (Geraldine Viswanathan) to lead a wagon train west on the Oregon Trail across an American landscape which, much like today, is fraught with both promise and peril.”

Radcliffe went from a worker in heaven to a Prince and now is a preacher. I cannot wait to see what they do to both men for the fourth season.

Before we get there, you need to watch all the other seasons. Not because you won’t be able to follow the show if you don’t. You need to watch it because they do some of the funniest things you will ever see on television. I mean, how can you not want to watch a show with a sh!t shoveler?

Is darkness coming to Harry Potter?
September 6th, 2019 under Harry Potter. [ Comments: none ]


J.K. Rowling sent a cryptic tweet which makes us wonder what is next in the world of Harry Potter. The author posted the above photo of Voldemort’s dark mark and wrote, “Sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places #HarryPotter #CursedChild”

What that means, has fans guessing. Is it a new play? A new book? Merchandise? We don’t know. We do know we cannot wait to find out what is next for the Harry Potter franchise.

Miracle Workers is miraculous!
February 12th, 2019 under Harry Potter, TNT/TBS/TCM. [ Comments: none ]


When I read about Miracle Workers, I was like this comedy can either work or fail big time. Then when I got the screeners, I had to watch it immediately to see which way it was going to go. It goes straight up to heaven! Like when the clouds split open, the harp plays as it welcomes it to the Pearly Gates. Ahhhhh!

Miracle Workers debuts at 10:30p tonight on TBS and you do not want to miss it. If you do, then you will face the wrath of Gd. That is because the show is about him. Steve Buscemi plays Gd as the divine one has never been played before. He is basically an unlikable nincompoop who is not the brightest star in the universe. Then one day he decides that he does not like what is going on down on Earth, so he decides to destroy it.

Craig (Daniel Radcliffe) works in the prayer department at Heaven, Inc. and he has been doing it alone for the last 10,000 years. After doing it for so long all by himself, he finally gets a co-worker. Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) is a positive overachiever who thinks she can do it all. Therefore, when she hears Gd wants to destroy our planet, she chooses to make a deal with the Lord to save it. All she and Craig have to do is make one prayer come true. In other words, a miracle. Sounds easy, but is impossible. Especially, when they keep hitting obstacle after obstacle. Yet, they won’t give up.

As the weeks go on, they will get some help from Gd’s personal assistants (Karan Soni and Lolly Adefope). They cannot stand working for Gd because he has no idea what he is doing and they spend their whole day cleaning up his many messes. They are not the only ones who hate him, so do his parents (yes he has them), his siblings and everyone else at Heaven, Inc.

When Gd says he is going put an end to Earth, the day cannot come soon enough for everyone in Heaven. They are all ready to move on. What happens when our fab four need them to make their miracle happen? Will they help them save Earth or let Gd blow it up.

I cannot tell you that. What I can say is it will all be resolved by the end of the season. That and this is a thoroughly awesome show. You will love it because it is a sweet quirky comedy. It is one of those shows that you instantly fall in love with and enjoy every single minute. You will love the concept, the writing, the characters, you will love it all. It is the best-written thing since the Bible. Too far!

Anyways, I have never seen anything else like it. Who knew you can make a show where Hashem is not perfect, far from it, and yet it is one of the greatest shows you have seen. It is not sacrilegious, it is just good innocent addictive fun.

Like I said, you better watch it because you do not want to piss off the man upstairs.

Has Daniel Radcliffe seen the Harry Potter show on Broadway?
November 23rd, 2018 under Harry Potter, Seth Meyers. [ Comments: none ]


As we know Daniel Radcliffe was Harry Potter and he has done Broadway shows. Therefore, it would make sense that Seth Meters asked him if he has seen Harry Potter and the Cursed Child when he was on Late Night the other night.

The actor told the NBC host that he has not. Not because he does not want to, but he just feels that people would be distracted by him and would what not know what he is thinking throughout the whole show.

Why doesn’t the magician where a costume? He said, “The thing about a disguise is that if it stops working then you are just a dude who were a disguise.” Which makes sense. Especially after the time he and Rupert Grint went to a festival and they wore gas masks as a way to hide from the public. When they got too hot, they took them off and they looked like fools because people know who there were now and they felt and looked stupid.

I bet you if he went to the show dressed as Harry Potter no would recognize him. Sometimes the most obvious is the best costume.
