Enjoy BRAD PITT while you can, because retirement is apparently not that far off.
In a new “GQ” interview, he says, quote, “I consider myself on my last leg. This last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?” Whatever happens, it doesn’t sound like Brad will ever NOT be involved in some type of creative endeavor. Quote, “I’m one of those creatures that speaks through art. I just want to always make. If I’m not making, I’m dying in some way.” Brad will be on the big screen again in August, in the action flick “Bullet Train”,. He’s also currently producing several movies. Elsewhere in the interview, Brad reveals that he quit smoking . . . and got sober thanks to a 12-step program. Quote, “I had a really cool men’s group here that was really private and selective, so it was safe. “Because I’d seen things of other people who had been recorded while they were spilling their guts, and that’s just atrocious to me.”
There’s really no good guy here, just two idiotic YouTubers who . . . as the kids say . . . Effed around and found out. JEFF WITTEK is suing DAVID DOBRIK over a stunt that went incredibly wrong in Utah back in the summer of 2020. Dobrik got an excavator and drove it into a lake so he could swing people around by the bucket. So Wittek held onto a rope attached to the bucket, and Dobrik started spinning him around. But he realized he was going too fast, so he tried to slow down. But ironically, he did THAT too quickly, and Witten crashed into the arm of the excavator. Wittek says the accident resulted in lost wages and massive hospital bills. He’s suing for more than $10 million. He didn’t list his injuries in the lawsuit, but he previously said he broke his foot and hip, tore a ligament in his leg, shattered his skull in nine places, and almost lost an eye. And he claims he almost died.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will honor MICHAEL J. FOX with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. It’ll be given out at their Governors Award ceremony on November 19th. The Academy says, quote, “Michael J. Fox’s tireless advocacy of research on Parkinson’s disease alongside his boundless optimism exemplifies the impact of one person in changing the future for millions.” The award is given to someone whose humanitarian efforts bring credit to the film industry. Previous winners include Gregory Peck, Frank Sinatra, Oprah Winfrey, and Angelina Jolie.
Speaking of Michael J Fox… Does Broadway know how to do anything but revive old movies? Apparently not. Because next year we’re getting a musical version of “Back to the Future”. It was announced yesterday with a teaser trailer showing two actors playing Marty McFly and Doc Brown in the one and only DeLorean with the words, quote, “Synchronize your watches.” Not much is known yet like the complete cast or which theater it will be at. But if you’re interested, you can sign up for ticket info at BacktotheFutureMusical.com. The musical actually debuted in the U.K. in 2020. The actors playing Marty and Doc in the teaser are the same ones who were in the U.K. version.
STEVE-O admitted that “Jackass” had a bad influence on kids in the early 2000s, when it was new. In an appearance on the “Hotboxing with Mike Tyson” podcast, here is what he said. ((QUOTE)) Because of kids doing their own stunts and posting videos online . . . as well as shows like “Ridiculousness” . . . Steve-O doesn’t think “Jackass” can be blamed anymore.
BILL COSBY might be a free man, but not everyone is convinced of his innocence. Jurors in a civil trial just ruled that he sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl at the Playboy Mansion in 1975. Her name is Judy Huth and she’s 64 now. And she’s $500,000 richer, at Cosby’s expense. The jury believed that Cosby intentionally caused her harm, reasonably believed that she was under 18, and was driven by unnatural or abnormal sexual interest in a minor. Cosby continues to deny any wrongdoing.
Remember in April when we learned that BRYAN CRANSTON and AARON PAUL will be returning as their “Breaking Bad” characters Walter White and Jesse Pinkman on “Better Call Saul”? Well, BOB ODENKIRK, let it slip that their appearances will be more than just a quick cameo. In an interview with the “Metro“, he said, quote, “Seeing Bryan and Aaron playing Walt and Jesse . . . It’s not just one time . . . And it was great.”
The final season returns on July 11th. There’s only six episodes left. There’s no word which ones Bryan and Aaron are in.
A new Netflix show just came out today that puts spoiled Gen Zers into the wilderness and it’s called . . . appropriately . . . “Snowflake Mountain”. Now to be clear, Netflix defines the term “snowflake” as someone who: is overly emotional . . . easily offended . . . and dramatic. The show takes 10 20-something-year-old “kidults” who refuse to grow up and get a job, and just live off their parents . . . and sends them into the wilderness to compete for $50,000, while learning survival skills. But the catch is, the contestants didn’t sign up for the competition . . . they thought they were going to a luxury resort for a party. They were tricked by their parents, in hopes of pushing them to grow up. Sounds like the reality series accomplished what it was made for because one of the contestants said, quote, “It humbled me, for a fact. It made me feel more prepared for any situation. You could stick me in the wilderness right now, and I’ve got you.”
Ozzy Osbourne will release a new solo single, “Patient Number 9”, on Friday, June 24. A teaser for the track, which features a guest appearance by legendary guitarist Jeff Beck, is available now making its way around online. “Patient Number 9” will receive its world premiere TODAY on “Ozzy Speaks” on Ozzy’s Boneyard on satellite radio…but we got a preview.

Johan Oviedo earned his first big-league win. He had been 0-9. But the win only came when he stopped the Brewers’ one-run lead in the fifth and Nolan Arenado reversed it all in the 6th inning. Arenado had a two-run homer to help lift the Cardinals to a 5-4 victory against the Milwaukee Brewers and back into first place in the National League Central Division. The Cardinals built their offense on home runs from Paul Goldschmidt in the first inning and Arenado’s game-changer in the sixth.
After missing the first three games of the series in recovery from a surgically-repaired thumb, Nazem Kadri scored in overtime on a partial breakaway to vault the Avalanche to a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning, moving Colorado within one win of hoisting the Stanley Cup. Kadri’s unlikely winner spoiled a brilliant performance from Tampa Bay’s Andrei Vasilevskiy, who had 35 saves in the game, including 10 in overtime. And then theres the we weren’t aware of until Jon Cooper briefly and emotionally met with reporters, before offering a bizarre idea. The Lightning head coach promised in his session with the media that we would see proof that the Bolts should have “still been playing” once Kadri’s winner was reviewed under a more critical lens. And, although not immediately clear, it would be pointed out that after Kuemper pushed the puck back up ice and it found the stick of Kadri, one Avalanche player — MacKinnon — had not completed his change.
All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement Tuesday after two seasons in Tampa Bay, a tenure that commenced when Tom Brady lured him out of his first retirement after just one season. Brady himself announced his own retirement back in February, but made an about-face just 41 days later, stating he would return for a third season with the Bucs. Within minutes of Gronk’s announcement Tuesday, his own agent, Drew Rosenhaus stoked the fires of a similar comeback for the legendary tight end. But I don’t it.
We have two deaths to report from the world of football today . . .
TONY “THE GOOSE” SIRAGUSA died yesterday, but there’s no word on the cause. He was only 55 years old. Goose was a defensive tackle who played his first seven seasons with the Colts, before moving on to the Baltimore Ravens and helping them win their first Super Bowl in 2000. Siragusa was known for his big personality . . . which was on full display after he retired and became a sideline analyst for Fox Sports from 2003 to 2015.
It’s a bad time to be a Ravens fan because outside linebacker JAYLON FERGUSON also passed away. He was only 26 years old. Police were called to a Baltimore residence late Tuesday night and found Ferguson unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at the scene. There’s no word yet on the cause of death, but police are not ruling out an overdose. Ferguson was drafted out of Louisiana Tech in 2019. He holds the NCAA record for career sacks with 45.
New details are still emerging about NFL player Shane Olivea‘s death. According to documents the 40-year-old San Diego Chargers star died from “hypertensive heart disease,” with the contributory cause of death attributed to “obesity.” The former athlete’s manner of death has been ruled as natural. Olivea passed away on March 2, with the NFL team confirming his death in a statement the following day. The team paid tribute to the former lineman by recalling when Olivea was first selected to join the Chargers and sharing the legacy he leaves behind.
