NBC2 reports: “According to the police report, 38-year-old Jason Jacque was draped in an American flag walking along Broadway Street in downtown Fort Myers when he stepped up onto a dining table and ripped down the owner’s pride flag. … Jocque is facing charges of aggravated assault, property damage and criminal mischief, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. … Jocque has a history of arrests involving alcohol, drugs and human trafficking.

TVLine Items: Zoey’s Adds Shadows Star, Pandora Promotion and More

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist appears to have found Max’s workplace replacement: Harvey Guillén (What We Do in the Shadows) will recur during Season 2 of NBC’s musical dramedy as George, a new programmer at Sprq Point.

In the Season 1 finale, Max announced that he was moving on from Sprq Point to pursue other opportunities, so could George — who makes his debut in the Season 2 premiere, airing in 2021 — be filling Max’s spot on Zoey’s team? It sure would line up with the fact that George is “constantly hungering for Zoey’s (and his fellow coders’) approval,” per the official character description.

Guillén currently plays “familiar”/vampire slayer Guillermo on the FX comedy What We Do in the Shadows, which was renewed for a third season back in May. His other TV credits include The Magicians, Eye Candy and Huge.

Our sister site Variety first reported the news of Guillén’s casting.

This is why Number Five always wears a uniform in The Umbrella Academy

Published

As it turns out, there’s a practical real-world reason to keep Five in the uniform, too. The creative team behind The Umbrella Academy has a unique challenge with the character, as he’s the only member of the Hargreeves family who isn’t aging. That means he should look virtually the same all the way through season two as he did during season one. As young ensembles like the cast of Stranger Things have shown, teenage actors have a tendency to age fast — they can look drastically different over the course of a year. The schoolboy uniform is a way to make Five look approximately the same age as Gallagher himself ages from year to year.

On top of the practical considerations both in-universe and out, there’s a psychological metaphor in Five’s look, as Gallagher revealed in an interview with Collider. “I love the costume. I think it’s really cool. But the way I always imagine it in my mind is that Five hasn’t had the time to visit a tailor. He’s thrust around from event to event, for his entire life, and his only goal is to survive, get back to his family, and save the world,” the actor explained. “He’s never had time to figure out who he is as a person, and the costume is a good metaphor for that. It’s the salt in the wound for Five, being in his younger self now. This is the only thing that fits him, and there’s no time to actually get a proper suit or anything. You’ll probably see the costume change, if Five ever gets the chance to slow down.”

In terms of slowing down, the second season concludes with the Hargreeves returning to 2019, only to find their home occupied by a different group of presumed superheroes: the Sparrow Academy. Time (travel) will tell if Number Five is rocking the same iconic attire when we catch up with him in The Umbrella Academy season 3.

Tucker Carlson Is Not Happy Ginsburg Didn’t Want Trump To Pick Her Replacement (Video)

Published

As you might expect, Tucker Carlson spent all of his Fox News show on Friday night talking about the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The show began within an hour of the news breaking about Ginsburg’s death, and Tucker had a non-stop sequence of conservative pundits to talk about it.

For the most part, Tucker refrained from saying anything negative about Ginsburg, but he balked at one point when he brought up the NPR report that Ginsburg, days before her death, expressed the desire that her seat on the bench not be filled until after the November election.

NPR reported not long after the death announcement that Ginsburg has said to her granddaughter, Clara Spera, days before her death: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

Tucker didn’t like that, and said as much to guest Peter Schweizer.

“I should say, we’re just getting word that NPR is reporting — and so with a grain of salt take this please — that on her deathbed Ruth Bader Ginsburg said to her granddaughter, and I think I’m quoting, ‘My most fervent wish,’ as she died, ‘is that I not be replaced by this president,’ ” Tucker said, getting the quote wrong.

“It’s hard to believe, and I’m gonna choose not to believe that she said that because I don’t think that people in their death beds are thinking about who’s president. You hope not — that’s a pretty limited way to think as you die. But certainly this will be used as a cudgel by the left.”

Schweizer then said that, really, this situation is Ginsburg’s own fault anyway, because she chose not to retire during the Obama years.

“Yeah, I think you’re right, Tucker. And look, I mean, it’s very tragic that she’s passed away she’s been handling this illness for a couple of years but we all have to remember that there were murmurs in the latter parts of the Obama administration where people were asking her to consider stepping aside and she refused to so part of the reason we’re in the situation because of that.”

Tucker just replied that Schweizer made a good point, and then moved on to the next guest. Most of Carlson’s guests on Friday openly encouraged Trump and his Republicans to push ahead to replace Ginsburg with a conservative before the election. Tucker himself did not endorse that idea, however.

You can watch the quoted portion of Friday’s episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in the video embedded below.
