Entertainment News as of 3 P.M. Friday, August 18


Entertainment News Advisory

--

Good afternoon from the Canadian Press entertainment department!

Advisories will typically hit the wire around 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. ET and will also be sent to editors by email. If you'd like to be added to the email list please contact Michael Oliveira at .

What we're taking about:

- Deadpool2-Death: British Columbia's workplace safety agency has released the first official account of a "Deadpool 2" stuntwoman's death, saying SJ Harris was thrown off a motorcycle and propelled through a plate glass window.The initial incident report issued by WorkSafeBC confirms witness accounts and adds new details to Monday's tragic accident in Vancouver during filming of the sequel to the popular superhero movie. Will be writethru. Moves National and Entertainment. Guard against duplication.

- APFN-US-People-Taylor-Swift: Taylor Swift had a "blank space, baby" across social media Friday -- and Swifties couldn't get enough of it. There was no immediate word from the Swift camp on what happened Friday, but the "Blank Space" pop star is known for promotional trickery on her social streams ahead of major music drops. PHOTO.

- APFN-US-TEC-Hollywood's-Hacking-Pains: Piracy is a long-running and even routine issue for Hollywood, whether it's street vendors hawking bootleg DVDs on street corners or video uploaded to file-sharing sites like Pirate Bay. Now cybercriminals are also putting embarrassing chatter and other company secrets at risk.The reputational risk from leaked email is much more difficult to calculate than any financial risk from piracy. "In some ways, that risk can be higher because you have no way of knowing what's in those emails," said Erik Rasmussen of Kroll Cyber Security. PHOTO.

- US-Trump-Art-Committee-Protest: Another presidential advisory committee appears to be breaking up.Actor Kal Penn, artist Chuck Close and the entire membership of the President's Committee On the Arts and Humanities have announced their resignation. A letter dated Friday, and signed by 16 of 17 committee members, cited the "false equivalence" of President Donald Trump's comments about last weekend's "Unite the Right" gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia. Trump has blamed "many sides" for the demonstrations that left an anti-racism activist dead. PHOTO.

- Brioux-on-the-Box: With so many shows packed into "peak TV" schedules, even the most ardent viewer can lose track of episodes -- or even an entire series named "Episodes." The comedy starring Matt LeBlanc -- who won a Golden Globe for essentially spoofing himself -- returns for a fifth and final season Sunday night on CraveTV. PHOTO.

- US-Obit-Bruce-Forsyth: Bruce Forsyth, a legendary entertainer, host and quizmaster on English television whose career spanned the history of TV, has died.The BBC announced that Forsyth, who had brightened its airwaves for decades, died Friday at his home. He was 89. PHOTO.

-US-Obit-Gunnar-Birkerts: Gunnar Birkerts, an internationally acclaimed modernist architect who designed buildings including the Federal Reserve Bank in Minneapolis, the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, and the University of Michigan Law Library, has died. He was 92. His son, Sven Birkerts, said his father died Tuesday of congestive heart failure at his home in Needham, Massachusetts. PHOTO.

- THEATRE-The-Breathing-Hole: Reneltta Arluk wanted to acknowledge the origins of the story told in her Statford Festival production "The Breathing Hole," so the director took the project to the North. Consultations and workshops were held with Qaggiavuut, a Nunavut-based performing arts society, to ensure the play was inclusive and reflective of the Inuit community. PHOTO. VIDEO. Moved late Thursday.

- US-Fox-James-Murdoch-Trump: The CEO of 21st Century Fox denounced racism and terrorists while expressing concern over President Donald Trump's reaction to the deadly violence surrounding a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. …
