Cheyenne Jackson Tackles Stage, Film & TV this Year

first_img View Comments Cheyenne Jackson is a busy, busy man! This year, he has theater, film and TV on his plate and on The Today Show on January 5, the Broadway favorite walked Kathie Lee and Hoda through each of his 2016 projects. First, he’s on American Horror Story: Hotel, which he booked in the most L.A. way possible. “We were in a spin class together,” he recalls of his pal and AHS creator Ryan Murphy. In Febraury, you can catch him at Lincoln Center in a concert presentation of The Secret Garden with Sydney Lucas, Sierra Boggess, Ramin Karimloo and more; it’s also poised for a future PBS broadcast. Later, look out for him having “fake rough sex” with Audra McDonald in the film adaptation of Hello Again. “You have to diversify if you want longevity,” Jackson told the Fourth Hour pair before praising them for being champions of Broadway and him. Aw, they’ve come a long way since this incident!last_img read more

Jim Riggleman

first_imgShould the Reds hire Jim Riggleman as their permanent manager?  I would say “yes”.  I like his traditional way of managing.  I am sure he has all of those statistics that are now available to all baseball teams, but his on-field moves go back to the way baseball used to be played.  He tries to bunt, although none of his players seem to know how to do it.What Riggleman needs in order to succeed is better talent.  Unfortunately, the Reds budget is tied up with Homer Bailey and Joey Votto.  Votto is still earning his keep, but Bailey is not.  If they want to keep Gennett, it will take more money as well.  He certainly deserves it.  What they desperately need are starting pitchers.  Of all the prospects they traded for or those developed in their system, only Castillo is doing a major league job.I would bet that Riggleman will be let go because it is easier and cheaper to replace him then to find the good players they need.  Riggleman is not making a lot of money which might work in his favor.  We will see.last_img read more

We will do all we can to protect the identity of those who contact us.“This is not confined to possible integrity threats but also how both our equine and human participants are treated, including around areas such as welfare, safeguarding and equality.“The launch of RaceWISE broadens the scope of our previous reporting services. RaceWISE should also mean that we can be more strategic in terms of how we process and investigate any relevant intelligence that we receive, in order to keep racing fair and clean.“We look forward to continuing to work with Crimestoppers and hope that anyone who has any concerns in relation to potential breaches of the Rules of Racing will both trust and utilise this service.”Concerns can be reported through a free phone line or an online form, with individuals able to report issues relating to welfare, integrity, equality and safeguarding.RaceWISE will continue to be run in partnership between the BHA’s integrity department and Crimestoppers, one of the country’s leading independent charities and anonymous reporting services.Advertising content will be sent out to racecourses which will be displayed in both public and restricted areas, with racecard and racecourse TV graphics also being created. The service will also be publicised to those working in racing through the relevant representative bodies.Mark Hallas, Chief Executive of the independent charity Crimestoppers said: “Transparency and openness are key to ensuring horseracing remains a trusted sport for those involved professionally and for the public to continue to enjoy.“We know, however, that there is the potential for someone to break the rules which is why, as a charity, we are keen to offer this enhanced whistleblowing line.“Maybe you are aware of allegations of cheating, illegal or unfair betting, or have concerns about the welfare of an a participant, equine or human, who works in the sport? We will pass your Information to the BHA for them to investigate. You can choose to stay anonymous, or you have the option to leave contact details so that the BHA can speak to you again. If you do, your details will always remain confidential.”last_img read more
