FORMER VIEW HOST SHERRI SHEPHERD IN NEW BIO PIC

Sherri Shepherd




NEW YORK — Actress and Emmy-Award winning former co-host of ABC’s “The View” Sherri Shepherd has joined Aldis Hodge (Underground) and Greg Kinnear to co-star in biopic Brian Banks, directed by Tom Shadyac (Liar Liar, The Nutty Professor, Evan Almighty) for producers Shivani Rawat’s ShivHans Pictures and Amy Baer’s Gidden Media. The biopic tells the story of Banks (Hodge), an All-American high school football player committed to USC by his junior year whose life was upended in 2002 when he was falsely accused of rape. Despite maintaining his innocence, Banks was railroaded through the system and sentenced to a decade of prison and parole.




With the help of the California Innocence Project, spearheaded by Justin Brooks (Kinnear), the criminal defense attorney and CIP co-founder, Banks’ conviction was overturned in 2012. He briefly played with the Atlanta Falcons in the 2013 preseason. Shepherd will portray Banks’ mother, Leomia, who was the glue that kept Banks together during his trial.




The script was written by Doug Atchison who wrote and directed the critically acclaimed Akeelah and the Bee.




The production takes place in Memphis, where Shadyac lives. He will bring in local film students to shadow and learn while he shoots the film.




The project was originally developed through Baer’s development fund Gidden Media. She will produce alongside Shivani Rawat and Monica Levinson (ShivHans Pictures) who also financed. Banks, Brooks, Derrick Tseng and Neil Strum are executive producers.




Shepherd’s film credits include co-starring with Katherine Heigl in "One for the Money" and with Chris Rock in "Top Five." Additionally, she has co-starred in such movies as the award-winning "Precious," "Woodlawn," "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa," "Guess Who," "Who's Your Caddy," "Beauty Shop" and "Ride Along 2," starring Kevin Hart.




Shepherd will begin shooting the second season of NBC sitcom “Trial and Error,” starring John Lithgow in March 2018 where she will reprise her co-starring role as legal secretary “Anne Hatch.”



Shepherd is represented by 3 Arts Entertainment.

REVEALED HANDWRITTEN NOTE FROM SEN. FRANKEN

Leeann Tweeden On The View



Revealed handwritten note from Sen. Franken




Leeann Tweeden spoke out about sexual misconduct allegations against Sen. Al Franken




Tweeden read the note: "It says, ‘Dear Leeann, I want to apologize to you personally. I don't know what was in my head when I took that picture. But that doesn't matter. There's no excuse. I understand why you can feel violated by that photo. I remember that rehearsal differently. But what's important is the impact on you and you felt violated by my actions, and for that I apologize. I have tremendous respect for your work for the USO. And I am ashamed that my actions ruined that experience for you. I am so sorry. Sincerely, Al Franken.'"



According to Tweeden, Franken also asked to meet with her personally.



Shared her story and why she spoke out



Tweeden discussed the bystanders' role in the now-infamous photo on a USO airplane, and talks about what she wants from Franken going forward.






Reacted to Pres. Trump's tweet



"This whole last 24 hours of my life have been overwhelming and surreal and then to have the president of the United States tweeting about you and this picture is — I almost don't even know what to say," Tweeden said in response to Trump's tweet.

THE VIEW: KIDS CAN'T BE FRIENDS WITH WHITE PEOPLE

****
Highlights From Today's View
****



THE VIEW: My kids can't be friends with white people




Hot Topics: 5th Roy Moore Accuser Speaks Out About His Alleged Sexual Misconduct.


Sunny Hostin says: "When his supporters are saying they still support him — I hope they look at what a 14-year-old looks like!"



"This stain is going to stay with us [Republicans]!" Meghan McCain weighs in on the impact of allegations against Moore, saying tribalism may be influencing conservatives to "vote for their people no matter what."





Hot Topics: Re-examining Accusations Against Bill Clinton.



In light of many prominent men facing career-ending sexual misconduct allegations, we discuss allegations leveled against Bill Clinton. Joy Behar says right now, "we should be dealing with the present tense even more — but it's not a bad idea to bring it up."



Hostin says: "Sexual harassment, sexual assault isn't a partisan issue! it's wrong across the board..."






Hot Topics: Teaching Children Of Color To Be Cautious Around White People?



"This bothered me because I think kids get it right and adults get it wrong — this is not something people are born feeling," Sara Haines says.



"They're not looking at color," Whoopi Goldberg says of children.



Meghan McCain explains how she has an adopted sister of color, saying if her parents had ever implied that she would have a different relationship with her sister because of the color of their skin it would have been "so absurd, gross, and deeply irresponsible": "When people are writing things like this, you have to understand that being friends also can mean being family."



Mary J. Blige on SNL's Portrayal Of Her, Mudbound and more.



"It's sad that this movie is relevant right now," Blige says of Mudbound, a movie set in Jim Crow Mississippi. "It's really really sad that we're still here."



"I don't think the Ku Klux Klan has gotten the memo that we're free and that we all belong, everybody belongs — no matter what color you are, what gender...!"

****
Sen. Jeff Flake On The View




THE VIEW -- Flake calls being a senator "honor of my lifetime," shares why he's leaving at end of term: "I could not speak out as I am now."


"We shouldn't condone it!" Flake talks taking on Pres. Trump, and why he's not returning to the Senate after his term: "There is no way you can be competitive in a Republican primary ... if you don't agree with the president's position and you don't condone his behavior."


"We have huge issues that we've gotta solve that will only be solved if both parties agree to share the credit, and most importantly, share the political risks," Flake said of needed bipartisan leadership.


Joy Behar questioned Sen. Flake on his NRA stance in wake of tragic Texas church shooting: "Now that you're not running again, how do you feel about speaking the truth about the NRA?"


Flake called for improved information-sharing between agencies after the shooting: "It needs to be better."


Hot Topics: Trump Calls Texas Shooting "Mental Health Problem"


"Here's an example of a guy that maybe stopped some more shooting by having a gun. He would've passed, probably, a universal background check," Sara Haines said of how this tragedy could be avoided. "The bad guy wouldn't have! A universal check may screen more people out!"

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.”



Hot Topics: What's Behind House Intelligence Committee Head Nunes' Russia Probe Comments?



Whoopi Goldberg reacted to Pres. Trump saying he's 'vindicated' in Russia probe developments: "He's not vindicated! No one was directly tapping you!"



Jedediah Bila addressed the House Intelligence chair: "Nunes ... are you interested in finding out if Russia compromised our election, or are you ... trying to prove [Pres. Trump's] tweets he initially put out there?"
