NO NEED TO RELIVE 'GREASE' GLORY FOR TRAVOLTA

John Travolta




Summer lovin', had him a blast. But that doesn't mean John Travolta feels the need to relive his Grease glory days.


When asked if the Grease: Live! producers approached him about taking part, the actor exclusively tells E! News: "They did, but you know, that's my history."


Travolta also says he isn't considering the next just-announced live TV musical Hairspray (another movie he starred in). However, he is excited about Grease: Live! and will be watching it when it airs on Fox Jan. 31.


"Like Sound of Music and other things, to do a live production is kind of fun and it'll be interesting to see it," he tells E! News. "[Grease] is done every day in high schools, it's done every summer in summer theater."


Travolta hit the TCA Press Tour in Pasadena today to promote his role as Robert Shapiro in Ryan Murphy's limited series American Crime Story: The People Vs. OJ Simpson, airing Feb. 2 on FX. It's been four decades since he last appeared as a regular on TV (in Welcome Back, Kotter), and he gives a stunning performance as O.J. Simpson defense attorney Robert Shapiro in the FX limited series, going head-to-head with co-prosecutor Johnny Cochran (Courtney B. Vance) in some explosive scenes.


Travolta revealed it took him four months to decide whether to do American Crime Story: The People Vs. OJ Simpson. "I asked some incredible people, many incredible people for their opinion, and they all said to do it," he tells us, adding that it was his trust in Ryan Murphy that ultimately sealed the deal.


Travolta may be out, but Grease: Live! will have two (lesser-known) actors from the 1978 movie, Fox announced Friday: Didi Conn (Frenchy) and Barry Pearl (Doody). And according to Julianne Hough (Sandy), Olivia Newton-John told her she was supportive of her casting when she guest-judged on Dancing With the Stars. "This is my hero, this is my 5-year-old dream, so for her to give me that blessing to take that weight...I hope I make her proud has been very opening and I can come her and discover Sandy for myself and still honor what Olivia did. I hope that she's watching...she's better than you'd hope she would be."


American Crime Story: The People Vs. OJ Simpson premieres February 2 on FX, and also stars Cuba Gooding Jr. (Simpson), Sarah Paulson (Marcia Clark), David Schwimmer (Robert Kardashian), Selma Blair (Kris Jenner) and Connie Britton(Faye Resnick).


Stand by for much more scoop from the ACS cast as the premiere gets closer.

JOHN TRAVOLTA TO FILM THE KILLING SEASON

****
THE WEB GOSSIP
****



John Travolta



BOBBY & JOHNNY -- Robert DeNiro and John Travolta will begin filming the movie Killing Season on January 16; the action movie thriller is set in the Appalachian Mountains and concerns a military veteran (DeNiro) who has retreated to a remote cabin in the woods. When a visitor, a European-tourist (Travolta) , appears on the scene, the two men strike up an unlikely friendship. But in fact the visitor is a former Serbian soldier bent on revenge. What follows is a tense, action packed battle across some of America's most forbidding landscape that proves the old adage: the purest form of war is one-on-one. Said an exec from Nu Image/Millennium Films who will release the film:”I've loved the project from the moment I read it. Evan Daugherty's remarkable script is thrilling, imaginative, unexpected and dominated by two extraordinary characters on a collision course.” There are those who say DeNiro's been coasting for quite some time with projects like the Fockers seemingly bringing the actor's quality level down. Me … I think this above projects sounds some akin to a film he did in 1998 called Ronin, which was sensational; and, his forthcoming movie Killer Elite, with Clive Owen and Jason Statham looking particularly good as well. DeNiro's a great actor … no question. When you start a movie, hopefully you go into it for all the right reasons; sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. In DeNiro's case, I'd cut him some slack. He does deserve it.

Duran Duran



LEMBO MATTERS --- When we were re-flexing with Duran Duran last week at Madison Square Garden, we met promo-executive Jerry Lembo; who has worked for Columbia Records and Chrysalis Records back in the day and somehow our conversation turned to Studio 54; turns out Lembo was hired on-the-spot by 54-producer Billy Smith-Amato to MC their regular weekend shows. Says Lembo, “Turns out they didn't have an MC and Billy really didn't know what a MC did. MC's not only intro'd the act, but gave a little verbal prep on who they were and what they were there for.” Lembo is a canny promo-exec on the scene and his eyes-and-ears have served him well. If I had a record out, there's no way I'd want anyone else working it. He's a dedicated tactician and knowledge fellow. btw: he didn't get invited to Sirius/XM's Studio 54 bash either ... turns out, it was better NOT to have been invited; that was the more exclusive list! Also, MSG looked great, with a reported $850 million investment; it now resembles more than anything else, a glitzy- hotel in Vegas. Gone for the most part, are the tacky food stations and t-shirt vendors seemingly every ten-feet … and, in their place, a newer and sleeker version. I didn't see everything, but was mightily impressed.

Adele



ADELE ADELE --- This week, Adele tallies a lucky 13th week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with her second album 21, marking one of the five-longest commands by a woman in the chart’s 55-year history. On Adult Contemporary, the set’s “Rolling In The Deep” logs a 19th week on top to become one of just 10 songs to lead the list for that many frames. She's the music story of the year for sure; a very dedicated and honest project from start to finish; she's the real deal. She is exactly what the music business has always been about; forget these awful talent shows, sampling, rap and border-line criminal behavior … she's a real prize. Watch her clean up at next year’s Grammy's and the American Music Awards later this month. She's nothing but terrific!


****



Hillary Swank



SWANK-ED --- Actress Hillary Swank has sacked her manager of 8 years (Jason Weinberg) due to the terrible PR-fallout from her appearance at the birthday of Chechnya's tyrannical president Ramzan Kadyroy. Said an insider, “There's a world of shit going down at CAA” … which is still attached as her agent. In fact, her romantic partner of five years, agent John Campisi (who works at CAA), is still involved with her as well. It sure seems that a lot of people exercised terrible judgment, first and foremost among them Swank herself. One look on the Internet, shows that Swank herself is being held accountable; say what you will, but, the buck has just got to stop with the actress herself. Things happen for sure, but this was a mis-judgement of the highest order. One look at several sites on the Internet, shows you the actress does have her detractors; blaming her judgment on everything from dumping ex-husband Chad Lowe, to her current partner Campisi. Whatever happens; you can believe it will be brought up again and again … and, again. These days with everyone promoting everything; from Coke on American Idol to Nissan cars on Fringe ... you got to be cautious. In these edgy times ... everyone wants money, but you've still got to be careful.

Adam Sandler




MICKY & ADAM --- Look for Micky Dolenz at this weekend's L.A. premiere of the new Adam Sandler opus Jack And Jill; in Westwood. This yarn spins the tale of identical twins Jack and Jill; both essayed by Sandler. While this appears to be more of the madcap-Sandler than the one is his Spanglish (still one of my favorites); the cast is rather inspired, with Katie Holmes, Al Pacino, Tim Meadows, Dana Carvey, and even, Regis Philbin in the movie. We'll have a full report back here next Monday.

The talented cast is rounded out by Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs as Freddie “Boom Boom” Washington, Ron Palillo as Arnold Horshack, Robert Hegyes as Juan Epstein and Marcia Strassman as Mr. Kotter’s wife, Julie.

JOHN TRAVOLTA EXTORTION CASE CONTINUES

John Travolta


The paramedic accused of attempting to extort $25 million from Hollywood star John Travolta was convinced the actor had "intentionally killed" his teenage son, according to the actors attorney. Tarino Lightbourne and his lawyer, former Bahamian Senator Pleasant Bridgewater, are on trial in Nassau facing charges of conspiracy to extort millions from the star, following Jett Travolta's death from a fatal seizure in January. Travolta’s attorney Michael McDermott took the stand today to testify, and revealed the details of the bribery plot the defendants approached him with. At the center of the case is a Refusal of Treatment/Transportation form, which releases the medics from liability, that the actor had signed after requesting the paramedics drive the family to the airport. Travolta at first believed it would be faster to fly Jett to a hospital in Florida, but subsequently changed his mind. McDermott described how he received a phone call from Bridgewater on January 12th, just 10 days after Jett died, threatening to release the document to the media if Travolta refused to meet their demands for the cash. According to McDermott, Bridgewater told him, "It’s my client’s contention that Mr. Travolta either intentionally killed his child or was negligent, and this document is firm evidence that he illegally tried to flee the jurisdiction with a dead body." She allegedly admitted Lightbourne had kept the form because it was "signed by a celebrity", before going on to propose a "substantial" amount of money to keep the form out of the public eye. Bridgewater allegedly told the star’s attorney, "The documents can be Mr. Travolta’s or it can be the world’s." Responding to Bridgewater’s bribe, McDermott recalled, "I said, ‘You are playing a very dangerous game lady… We are going to the police. You’re going to be in big trouble.’" Lightbourne’s lawyer replied, "My client has already taken that into consideration and, frankly, he doesn’t care." The couple have pleaded not guilty. The trial will continue.

TRAVOLTA BLACKMAIL CAUGHT ON CAMERA

The two men accused of trying to extort millions of dollars from Hollywood star John Travolta, in return for handing over papers connected to the death of his son in January, were reportedly caught on camera bargaining out a deal with the star's lawyer. Paramedic Tarino Lightbourn and his lawyer, Pleasant Bridgewater, have pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit extortion, but new evidence, obtained by People magazine, could put the couple in jail. Videotape recorded secretly by the Royal Bahamas Police show Lightbourn and Bridgewater attempting to secure a multi-million payment from Travolta for the return of a form the star signed just before his son was pronounced dead. Reports are suggesting the document, concerning where Travolta’s son Jett should be taken after suffering a seizure at the family’s holiday home, fell into the paramedics hands. In the footage, Travolta’s lawyer, Michael McDermott, asks Lightbourn why he’s proposing the deal via a phone conference, to which the paramedic replies, "I was poor all my life. You know, me and my family, were struggling all our life. I wanted to do things for charity all of my life." The two men then appear to discuss payment options, while Bridgewater listens in. According to a People magazine reporter, who has seen the hidden camera footage, Lightbourn eventually agrees to a price of $15 million for the papers and then protests when Travolta’s lawyer suggests the cash is handed over in installments, stating, "I can’t do installments. I want to get this behind me. I want to put this to rest. I don’t want to see you anymore." The 44-minute phone meeting ends after a deal is done, prompting Lightbourn to reportedly state, "Case closed. Case closed… Once this is closed, it’s buried deeper than the Titanic." A month after the alleged negotiation, Travolta met with Bahamas police officials to file a complaint that led to the current Nassau trial, which began earlier this week. The actor has already testified and is expected back on the stand sometime next week.

ARREST IN JOHN TRAVOLTA EXTORTION PLOT

The ambulance driver who took Hollywood star John Travolta's late son to the hospital following his fatal seizure has been formally charged for his part in an alleged plot to extort money from the actor. The Bahamas’ Minister of National Security, Tommy Turnquest, has confirmed Tarino Lightbourne was charged with conspiracy to extort on Monday. Sixteen year old Jett Travolta, succumbed to a seizure while the Travolta family were vacationing in the Bahamas on January 2nd. Lightbourne was arrested on Friday, one day after former Senator Pleasant Bridgewater was detained for her alleged involvement in the extortion plot. Bridgewater resigned from her post following the arrest and has been released on $40,000 bail. Their arrests follow reports the couple worked together to take a photograph of the Pulp Fiction star’s son as he lay dying in an alleged $25 million extortion scheme. Details of the reported extortion plot have not been made public, although reports on TMZ.com are suggesting the alleged plot does not involve photos. The Bahamas former Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe, a close friend of the Travoltas, was also questioned by police on Friday. But Turnquest tells the website Wilchcombe "has not been charged", adding, "He was not arrested; he was questioned on Friday."

We will never let that happen."

TRAVOLTA AND PRESTON TAKE SON HOME

John Travolta And Kelly Preston


Hollywood stars Kelly Preston and hubby John Travolta have flown home to Florida with the remains of their late son Jett. The young 16-year-old died following a seizure at the family’s Bahamas retreat on Friday. Travolta and Preston, who also have an eight-year-old daughter, left the island last night with the ashes of the teenager, following his cremation. The couple returned to their Ocala, Florida home for the first time since the teenager’s death, a friend of the couple tells the Associated Press. And an emergency worker who drove the ambulance that took Jett to hospital has revealed Travolta hugged the teenager’s body and wept, "I’m sorry, Jett" when he was told his son was dead. Medic Tarino Lightbourn says, "I think he meant, ‘I’m sorry, Jett. I did all I could do.’ He was crying, eyes red. I remember him looking up at the ceiling and saying ‘God please help me!’ "John himself was participating in the CPR on the way to the hospital. John himself went behind the curtain, tears in his eyes. I could see the love in his eyes. When he was hugging his son he said ‘I’m sorry Jett’." Pathologists conducting Monday’s autopsy have yet to comment on the official cause of death, but an undertaker who has seen the death certificate revealed experts concluded the youngster died from a "seizure". Funeral plans have not yet been announced, but the ceremony is expected to take place this week.

JOHN TRAVOLTA WON'T DO HAIRSPRAY SEQUEL

Hollywood superstar John Travolta has decided not to reprise his hit role as Edna Turnblad in the upcoming sequel to movie musical Hairspray. The award winning actor caused a sensation with his critically acclaimed portrayal, cross-dressing and donning a fat-suit for the role. But Travolta is adamant that he won’t be returning for a second installment because he is not a fan of movie sequels. He tells Moviehole "I think once is enough. I did it and I did it well but I’m not a big sequel guy". We can understand why he won't do this. Sequel's rarely do as good as the first picture.

JOHN TRAVOLTA DROPPED FROM DALLAS

Star John Travolta

Hollywood star John Travolta has been dropped from the new Dallas movie, despite having been attached to the project for more than two years.Travolta, who had been cast as oil tycoon villain J.R. Ewing in the film adaptation of the 1980s TV soap, was "let go about two weeks ago", according to U.S. reports. A source tells the New York Post’s gossip column PageSix, "John was given a nice seven-figure ‘gift’ to go away quietly. He also got five family members roles in the movie, and they aren’t going to be in it now, either." And while a friend of Travolta has confirmed the star’s non-involvement, he disputes rumors the Grease star was "paid off" to leave the project.The pal says, "He is not doing the movie. They’ve gone in a different direction than was originally intended. I don’t know about any ‘gift,’ and I don’t think the family member thing is correct." Travolta is not the only star to have been allegedly dropped from the project.
