E! NEWS CATCHES RYAN GOSLING @ CINEMACON

Image
E! NEWS -- Gosling jetted into Las Vegas for CinemaCon to promote Blade Runner 2049, the much anticipated sequel to Ford's 1982 classic Blade Runner. Ford reprises his iconic role of Rick Deckard while Gosling plays a mysterious LAPD officer.

E! News asked Gosling what was more nerve-racking—making a musical or shooting his first scene with Ford?

"I think the latter," Gosling said. "[Ford] is just the best as a guy, as an actor in every way. He's such a part of my childhood and he was so great how he showed up to set, just rolled up his sleeves and got to work. He was the best partner, collaborator you could have.

"They created such a legacy with this film," he continued. "Time has proven its specialness. So obviously we wanted to do right by him and by the original."

And then there was the time Ford accidentally punched Gosling in the face during a fight scene. "Or I leaned into it," Gosling cracked. "There's a strong chan…

JERROLD NADLER: PRESIDENT'S BUDGET IS ABSURD

Image
**** CONGRESS AT WORK ****



Jerrold Nadler Speaks -- Several weeks ago, the White House released the president’s budget, a document outlining the administration’s spending priorities for our nation. As many of us expected, it was absurd; full of disastrous cuts that will harm everyday Americans. But I cannot say that I am surprised, the budget simply reflected the policies and priorities the Administration has been advocating for since Day 1.

As an example of what I believe are some of the president's proposed draconian cuts, the budget eliminates Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), which help families stay in safe, affordable housing and supports programs such as Meals on Wheels, which provides food to the sick and elderly. The budget also cuts funding for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which works to ensure we have clean air to breathe and water to drink.

Furthermore, the budget ramps-up military spending in a show of force that doesn't make our country any sa…

THE EXTENDED MAX'S KANSAS CITY 1976 & BEYOND

Image
Max's Kansas City is the legendary New York City nightclub that became the focal point for the city's hip artistic community from the late 60's until the early 80's. In its initial period, it was famously often populated by Andy Warhol's Factory crowd, and played host to new artists such as the Velvet Underground, New York Dolls, the Stooges, Bruce Springsteen and countless others. It became a base for jet-setters, glam rockers and celebs, until the scene faded and it shut its doors at the end of 1974.


Reopened in 1975 under new management, Peter Crowley was hired as music director. The new young bands he booked helped spawn, in tandem with CBGBs, the New York City punk scene. In 1976 Peter compiled a studio album of acts associated with the club, Max's Kansas City 1976, to help promote the club. It featured the first released recordings of Suicide, The Fast and Warhol-era veteran Wayne County, whose title-track gave a roll-call of many of the famous acts who…

CHRIS EVANS TALKS CANDID TO E! NEWS ABOUT 'GIFTED'

Image
E! NEWS -- Chris Evans' plan to be a dad one day isn't the only thing he revealed to E! News when we sat down with him last week to talk about his new movie Gifted.


Here are five more things we learned about the hunky actor that ya gotta know.


1. Young Love: Evans said he had at least three celebrity crushes when he was a kid. "Elisabeth Shue from Adventures of Babysitting and Karate Kid!...Lori Loughlin was a big one. Come on, who didn't love Lori Loughlin? She hasn't aged at all. Sandra Bullock was a big one too...like when I was like in seventh or eight grade."


2. Song & Dance: Evans not only knows how to tap dance (just ask any of his co-stars, who frequently comment on his awesome dancing skills), but he'd love to star in a musical. "I'm looking to find one," he said, adding, "I love Gene Kelly, he was great. Wouldn't it be great to do a [Gene Kelly] biopic or something like that?"


Or Guys & Dolls! "That would be …

REP. ADAM SCHIFF TELLS 'THE VIEW' HE WAS MYSTIFIED

**** Top Democrat on House Intel Committee Rep. Adam Schiff Says Was “Blindsided, But Mostly Just Mystified” by Nunes’ Actions. ****

Rep. Adam Schiff



Rep. Schiff joined the co-hosts from Washington, D.C. and said he was “mystified” by the actions of the committee’s chair Rep. Devin Nunes: “He has to either have the surrogate role or the chairman role, but he can’t do both.”



“There’s no basis for the president’s slanderous accusation against his predecessor,” Schiff said of Nunes' highly-criticized intelligence brief to Pres. Trump. “Even on the basis of what the chairman has said about these intercepts, nothing in it vindicates the president in any way.”

SHARNA BURGESS & BONNER BOLTON COUNTRY DANCE

E! NEWS -- Sharna Burgess and Bonner Bolton are taking their undeniable chemistry to another, more private dance floor.
E! News obtained exclusive photos from the Dancing With the Stars pairing's flirty night out at Cowboy Palace Saloon in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening, which will certainly fan the flames about their possible romance.
The professional bull rider was right in his element in the Country western bar, and didn't shy away from wrapping his arm around Sharna's shoulder and whispering into her ear.
The Australian ballroom dancer, who looked fab in a navy blue swing dress and thigh-high boots, couldn't help but smile as she and Bonner practiced their moves.
An onlooker told E! News of Sharna and Bonner's possible date night, "He seems especially doe-eyed—and she certainly doesn't seem to mind the attention."
Although it appears as if the dance partners were filming a segment for the ABC competition series, it's clear Burgess and Bolton…
