As today’s O.J. Simpson parole hearing starts, my memory always comes back to this legendary call to Peter Jennings on ABC News from Mr. Robert Higgins in 1994 . Mr. Higgins was watching OJ Simpson in his Ford bronco looking all scared. This is one of the most classic prank calls of all time. Nobody ever knew the identity of Mr. Higgins, but his call lives in the echos of legendary status for all time. Will Oj Simpson be paroled today???? I think he will be, as he has been a model prisoner in jail and has done his time for this crime. The world will be watching this afternoon.
Richard Simmons the weight loss guru hasn’t been seen in public in over a year. Many people are worried about Richard’s health and well being as many are saying he’s being controlled by a maid of the house in which he lives. Since the early 80’s i’ve always enjoyed Richard Simmons from his early days on General Hospital to his many appearances on The Howard Stern Show. There is a new podcast out there that is getting some publicity as its called Missing Richard Simmons as it tries to find out the real reason Simmons left the public eye. I hope Simmons is ok and happy, as I always thought of him as a sad little clown.
Thousands gathered from Thursday to Sunday at the Javitz Center in New York City to check out panels and events around hit shows, including “The Walking Dead” and “Stranger Things,” and upcoming movies like “Power Rangers.”
Netflix also had a strong showing with its Marvel shows, including a surprise appearance from a possible new villain, played by an iconic actress.
Here’s a breakdown of all the big moments:
At the packed main stage Saturday evening, Marvel not only unveiled the new trailer for its upcoming Netflix series “Iron Fist,” but also assembled, for the first time, all of “The Defenders.” There were more surprises: notably, Sigourney Weaver has joined the Marvel family.
As part of a panel with “Iron Fist” star Finn Jones, the head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb brought the house down by calling to the stage Mike Colter, who plays “Luke Cage,” Kristen Ritter, who plays “Jessica Jones,” and Charlie Cox, best known for playing “Daredevil.” Together, the quartet of Marvel’s “street-level” heroes make up the superhero supergroup that will have their own 2017 show on Netflix. “Iron Fist” will be ready to stream in March.
The cast also introduced Weaver — to thunderous applause — as “The Defenders” antagonist, thought the role is still a secret.
Marvel is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
The movie reboot of the hit 1990’s TV show launched a trailer of its own Saturday at Madison Square Garden, an off-site for this year’s Comic Con.
The movie, out on March 24, stars the likes of Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks. The trailer immediately went viral, earning more than 12 million hits on YouTube alone.
