Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen was attacked while he was standing outside the Four Seasons Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. A 19-year-old Ohioan named Max Hartley allegedly ran at full speed and knocked Rick to the ground, where he hit his head. A woman tried to intervene, and then he assaulted her, even dragging the woman back outside the hotel when she tried to escape into the lobby. Following the attacks, 911 callers reported they apprehended Hartley after he tried to break a restaurant’s window by throwing chairs. He was caught later, vandalizing cars in the parking lot of another hotel. He was charged with abuse of an elderly or disabled adult with great harm. No word on Allen’s condition. Of Note: Rick Allen is 59. He lost his arm in a 1984 car accident. He was in town to play the Seminole Hard Rock. The lawyer for the arrested man didn’t comment on what provoked the attacks.. Witnesses say Hartley was heavily intoxicated.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott filed to legally change their son’s name from Wolf Jacques Webster to Aire Webster. In their petition they said they regret the initial name choice and, quote, “Now that [they’ve] had the chance to spend time with their baby, they believe the name Aire is a better fit.” (TMZ)

If you grew up in the ’80s, you probably remember at least HEARING about the “Faces of Death” movies. They were supposedly documentaries that showed real scenes of humans and animals dying. But it turned out a lot of that footage was FAKED. Anyway, about two years ago, there was talk that a movie based on the franchise was in the works. And it’s still happening. And we just found out that it’ll star Barbie Ferreira from “Euphoria” and Dacre Montgomery from “Stranger Things”. The filmmakers are calling their movie, quote, “an exploration of cycles of violence and the way they perpetuate themselves online.” (Hollywood Reporter)

After starring in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “The Goonies” as a kid, Ke Huy Quan was ready for his career to skyrocket. And then it just . . . didn’t. So even though he just won an Oscar for “Everything Everywhere All at Once”, he’s still “really scared” his career will stall again. He says, quote, “I’ve been down this road before and I’m so afraid that history is going to repeat itself. I said [to my agent], ‘Please, whatever you do, please make sure that does not happen.'” Quan actually had a conversation about this with Cate Blanchett at a recent event, and she gave him this advice . . . quote, “Just go with your heart and be irresponsible: Don’t worry about what other people think. “Choose something that you believe in, choose something that you love, and things will work out.” (People)

Speaking of some 80’s nostalgia: FELLOW NERDS PREPARE YOURSELF: At this year’s South by Southwest Festival, Disney Parks and Experiences Chairman Josh D’Amaro showed off the next best thing. It’s a lightsaber with a “blade” that actually expands and retracts, just like the ones in the “Star Wars” movies. And it makes noises like them too. D’Amaro told the crowd, quote, “I have the coolest job in the world. I’m holding a real lightsaber.” HERES THE GUY AND GAL FROM DISNEY PRESENTING IT.. Now the bad news: At the moment, Disney has no plans to sell these things. For now they’re just being used by some of the actors at their parks and attractions. (IFL Science)

Sorry Linkin Park fans . . . Mike Shinoda shot down any hope of seeing a Chester Bennington hologram some day. He said, quote, “Those are creepy. Even if we weren’t talking about us, if we weren’t talking about Chester, which is a very sensitive subject, and we would have our feelings about how we would represent that . . . “For me, that’s a clear no. I’m not into that.” Mike mentioned that he gets the appeal of ABBA doing their hologram shows, but says that’s different because they’re all still alive and it’s just to recreate the ’70s. (The interview was with Houston station 94.5 The Buzz. You can watch it here. Go to 8:34 for the hologram comments.) (People)

Do you wait for a series to end before you start watching it? You’re not alone. According to a new survey, 46% of Americans either sometimes or always wait for the series finale before we dive in. More than a quarter of those people . . . 27% . . . say they do it because they’re afraid a show will be CANCELED with an unresolved ending. Which is a legit concern these days. 31% of adults who use streaming services say that one to three shows they had started since February of 2022 had been canceled . . . sometimes with unsettled plotlines. Meanwhile, 24% do it because they hate finishing a season that ends with a cliffhanger, and having to wait for the next season to see how it’s resolved. Which is harder than ever, now that you sometimes have to wait YEARS for the next season. (Variety)

Earlier this month, Netflix announced that a new series is coming to the streaming giant – “Florida Man.” “We’ve all seen the meme. We’ve all seen the headlines about a seemingly singular ‘Florida man’ breaking laws in the most creative ways imaginable: ‘Florida Man Arrested for [fill in blank with wild crime, possibly involving alligators],’” Netflix wrote. According to Netflix, the show from Jason Bateman’s production company, Aggregate Films, aims to “dig way deeper into the swamp than a news snippet can.” The series will reportedly follow one particular man from Florida, Mike Valentine, who is a recovering gambling addict. Valentine reluctantly returned to the Sunshine State after a mob boss sent him to find his missing girlfriend. Throughout the show, Mike gets caught up in some situations “that would put some of the best ‘Florida Man’ memes to shame,” Netflix said. The show is set to debut on April 13, 2023.
