Apparently the disgraced A list director who is being forced to work under the table and anonymously doesn't really care about turning things around. A couple of weeks ago, he arranged for a group of guys who want to be actors to meet at a designated spot. He told them they were all going to a concert.
An actor friend of mine had an audition earlier this week for a role in a movie. Not a big role. Maybe twenty lines total, but it would be a big break for them because it is in what will be a huge box office smash. While he is auditioning, he noticed a guy in the back of the room who was very obviously on some type of dating app because of the way he was swiping.
What B-list singer/songwriter/celeb spawn of an A+++ lister has been having trouble getting her memoirs published for the last decade or so? It's a roman a clef, so names are changed. The reason why many publishing houses refuse to publish it is because she reveals that the mogul/enabler of that disgraced director raped someone very close to the singer when that person was underage.
Apparently a frequent guest at the frequent parties of the disgraced director and his mentor and all of those other a-holes found an old camera of his and it is filled with nearly a thousand images from several of those parties. Images that have never been seen before. There are also new victims and predators to be identified in the pictures. He is building a website right now to host all of the photos and let people figure out who everyone is that he can't remember.
A Birdie Blind Item: It wasn't just the bit player, or the nude auditions - it was the young star himself. Actors complained to their agents about what they saw on set, and understood to be happening off set (this comes from one of them directly), but nothing was done about it. You all know who the director is.
That Hollywood trade sucked up to the A+ list mogul again. Whether it is protecting the disgraced director through promotion or omission or their latest kneepaddy thing by giving the permanent A++ list celebrity a forum to shape her recent comments about another A++ lister. They didn't ask one followup that wasn't designed to make her look better.
