Taye Diggs did not want to do RENT Live
January 28th, 2019 under RENT. [ Comments: none ]

Last night, the original cast of RENT joined the one-night-only ones on Fox’s RENT Live; but there was almost one holdout. After the show, Taye Diggs sang a song to the tune of Seasons of Love about it and he said he did not want to do it because he thought it would be cheesy. Instead, it turned out that he had a really good time with his old a$$ friends and actors that are old enough to be his kids.

Talking about the youngins, on Saturday night, Brennin Hunt broke his foot during the dress rehearsal and was only able to do the final song live. Before he came out for the finale, Tinashe wheeled him out in front of the crowd. You can tell by the applauds, they loved him. Which they should because that was no easy feet, I mean feat, to do a day after you break your tootsie. When I fractured mine, I was in bed downing pain pills for days. There was no way you could get me to do my big break after a big break. Thus, my shoe is off to him. I just have a problem with the person who told him to break a leg before the rehearsal. What were they thinking?

No day but today to watch RENT live!
January 27th, 2019 under RENT. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p, Fox is going to the East Village in NYC to follow a group of friends who know how to make the most of five-hundred, twenty-five-thousand, six-hundred minutes. Translation they are bringing RENT the iconic music to live television.

A Broadway musical that defined a generation and now it will do the same for a new one. The production stars Kiersey Clemons as Joanne, Brandon Victor Dixon as Tom, Jordan Fisher as Mark, Vanessa Hudgens as Maureen, Brennin Hunt as Roger, Mario as Benjamin, Tinashe as Mimi and Valentina as Angel.

As the century was about to turn, a group friends were in living in a time of change. Where men could be women, women could be men and both sexes could be with who they wanted to. There was just one problem AIDS. These friends knew that all too well, but they were going to live life like La Vie Boheme. In others as free as they want to be because they cannot afford anything including the rent.

Will this production light my candle or will it only be one song glory? We find out soon enough.


The things Taye Diggs will do to get a Lyft!

A post shared by Taye Diggs (@tayediggsinsta) on

How many times have you been waiting for a Lyft and to make the time go you shorter; you get up and dance? I have not either, but that is exactly what does Taye Diggs did. Well at least he says this video was for Lyft and not something he normally does when waiting for the car service. But let’s be honest, I can totally see his Broadway roots coming through in situations like this. Couldn’t you?

When it comes to his moves, he is a smooth criminal!


Taye Diggs and George Lopez have seen better days!
December 22nd, 2017 under Better Days, George Lopez, RENT. [ Comments: none ]

Taye Diggs and George Lopez looked like someone jumped the two actors and just left them there all bloodied and bruised. Who would do that to them? The makeup department of their film River Runs Red and they did a pretty gosh darn good job. I thought all those bruises and cuts were real, didn’t you?


Kevin Spacey comes out as a Gay man and apologizes to Anthony Rapp
October 29th, 2017 under Kevin Spacey, RENT. [ Comments: none ]

Over the weekend, Rent’s Anthony Rapp revealed to Buzzfeed that back in 1986, when he was just 14 years old and Kevin Spacey was 26, they had a night he will never forget. Not in a good way, in a nightmare inducing way that has lasted 31 years.

He alleges that Spacey invited him over to his for a party. Then something happened. Rapp says, “My memory was that I thought, Oh, everybody’s gone. Well, yeah, I should probably go home.” He didn’t and Spacey, “sort of stood in the doorway, kind of swaying. My impression when he came in the room was that he was drunk,” adding, “He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold. But I don’t, like, squirm away initially, because I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ And then he lays down on top of me.” Then he told the site, “He was trying to seduce me…I don’t know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.” Eventually Rapp was able to push the man, who was almost twice his age at the time, off of him, retreat in the bathroom and then eventually head home wondering what just happened. It is night that has stayed with him for over three decades and he feels “fortunate that something worse didn’t happen.”

The story went public and Spacey responded to accusations on Twitter. He says he does not remember the night and blames what might have happened on “deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.” He is also sorry for the pain that he caused his fellow actor.

But that is not all that the Oscar winner revealed, he also finally came clean about all of those rumors that he is a Gay man. He confirmed that he has “had relationships with both men and women.” But he chose “now to live as a Gay man.”

He concluded his statement by saying, “I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behavior.”

Seven minutes after Spacey posted his statement, the Star Trek: Discovery star Tweeted, “I came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out to shine a light and hopefully make a difference, as they have done for me. Everything I wanted to say about my experience is in that article, and I have no further comment about it at this time.” Rapp has been openly out for a long time, so it will be interesting to see if he will comment further after Spacey’s apology and confession.

UPDATE: To give you some perspective of what Rapp looked like at the time, it was around when he filmed Adventures in Babysitting. Therefore, he looked like a 14-year-old going on 15 and not 14 going on 21.
