Corey Feldman reveals late Kristoff St John’s last TV appearance was in ‘My Truth: The Rape Of 2 Coreys’

Published

on

Corey Feldman is due to release his documentary ‘My Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys’ on Monday, March 9, 2020. The movie is a long time coming for Feldman where he will be revealing the names of six Hollywood predators and pedophiles including the name of the man who raped his former co-star and best friend Corey Haim. 

A day before the release, Feldman has now revealed that the late ‘Young and the Restless’ star Kristoff St John will appear in the movie, for what will be his final role. 

Kristoff passed away from heart failure on February 3, 2019, and has his fans mourning for their beloved Neil Winters, the role Kristoff played on the CBS soap opera ‘The Young and The Restless’ for 28 years. 

Like Feldman, Kristoff was also a child actor who got his break at an early age. And was also sexually abused as a child. 

Kristoff went public about his abuse in the film ‘Children of God’. Now he will be joining Feldman to talk about his own horrific experiences as his last film appearance. 

Feldman took to Instagram to share a heartfelt tribute. “…God bless my dear childhood friend @kristoffstjohn who sadly lost his life less that 1 year after speaking out as part of this important documentary! We grew up together and he is one of the few child actors I became friends with prior to meeting Mr Haim, and even years before I was a #Goonie I starred with this kind, wonderful human on a show called #BAdNewsBears all the way back in 1979, we remained close friends ever since! Unfortunately, he too was a victim of childhood sexual abuse, he spoke about it in his own film documentary called ‘Children of God’,” he wrote.

It was then that he confirmed Kristoff would be a part of his documentary. “This film would not be the same without his powerful presence and I thank god we caught up with him still looking strong and healthy and giving a very solid interview which officially and sadly marks his last on-screen appearance! So in a bittersweet way I can say his first and last contributions to the world as an artist happened by my side,” he wrote. 

Kristoff was born into a family with connections to the entertainment industry. It was at the age of nine that he scored his first role in 1975 on the television series ‘That’s My Momma’. 

He has also worked in ‘Happy Days’, ‘Wonder Woman’, ‘Roots: The Next Generation’, the movie ‘The Champ’, ‘Big John Little John’, and the 1979 television series ‘The Bad News Bears’, which he co-starred in with Feldman.

Easy A Turns 10: See the Cast Then and Now

Published

By

You better knock, knock on wood.

Why? Well, because today, Sept. 17 marks the 10-year anniversary of the teen comedy Easy A.

The hit film starred Emma Stone as Olive Penderghast, a 17-year-old girl that lets a lie spiral out of control in order to increase her notoriety at school. Partially inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlett Letter, Stone’s Olive finds herself getting ostracized and decides to stitch a red A into provocative clothing.

Along the way, Olive becomes closer with her longtime crush, the school’s mascot “Woodchuck” Todd (played by Penn Badgley).

The cast also includes Amanda Bynes as Marianna Bryant, Dan Byrd as Brandon, Aly Michalka as Rhiannon Abernathy, Thomas Haden Church as Mr. Griffith and others.

Easy A was made on a budget of $8 million and made its world premiere at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. Six days later, it opened in theaters, making back double the budget by the end of the opening weekend.

Watch BTS’ ‘Dynamite’ Performance on ‘America’s Got Talent’

Published

By

The “America’s Got Talent” semifinals kicked off with a bang on Wednesday night (Sept. 16) as South Korean group BTS delivered a colorful and energetic performance of the hit song “Dynamite” on the NBC show.

The band members — comprised of Jungkook, RM, V, Jimin, J-Hope, Suga and Jin — looked dapper in ’70s-inspired get-ups while meticulously hitting their marks as they danced against the backdrop of a gas station, a movie theater and a restaurant. Among the signage: a shout-out to ARMY, the band’s legion of devoted fans.

The performance on “AGT,” much like the song’s accompanying video, gave each member a chance to shine, from Jungkook (whose newly curled locks prompted his name to become a trending topic on Twitter) setting the stage atop a mock-up of the “AGT” judges’ table, to the blue-haired RM inviting fans to the party strutting atop the roof of a gas station, then throwing it down to J-Hope (in a cool red leather jacket) who declared he’s “good to go.” Jimin’s playful personality and sweet vocals proceed to light the song up like, well, dynamite, as did V’s raise of an eyebrow as he took the wheel of a car with Suga dancing on the hood. After Jin took a turn in the center, the group reformed as a singular unit. (Watch the performance below.)

Shortly after BTS’ appearance aired, late night host Jimmy Fallon tweeted his fandom, declaring the performance “flawless.”

“Dynamite,” written by David Stewart and Jessica Agombar and vocal-produced by Jenna Andrews, is a bonafide smash at radio, logging more than 23,000 spins since dropping on Aug. 21, according to Alpha Media. It’s also a top-selling download and, in adjusted song units, the single has surpassed 649,295, good for a gold certification and then some.

Earlier this week, BTS released a ten-minute trailer for “BTS Universe Story,” an “interactive social game,” and Suga was featured on a collaboration with pop singer Max, whose new single, “Blueberry Eyes,” debuted at No.1 on the iTunes pop chart and No. 2 on the overall U.S.chart. BTS’ upcoming concert film, “Break the Silence: The Movie,” is slated to hit U.S. theaters on Sept. 24.

The remaining top 10 on “AGT” include three golden buzzer winners — spoken-word poet Brandon Leake and singers Roberta Battaglia and Cristina Rae — along with aerialist Alan Silva, Bello Sisters and Bad Salsa, and singers Archie Williams, Daneliya Tuleshova, Kenadi Dodds and duo Broken Roots.

The “America’s Got Talent” finals are set to air Sept. 22 on NBC.
