Chris Harrison Apologizes (Again) for ‘Bachelor’ Comments in First Interview: ‘I Made a Mistake’ (Video)...
5 minutes ago
In a brief snippet of his upcoming interview Thursday morning, “Bachelor” host Chris Harrison apologized again for his comments that defended a “Bachelor” contestant who appeared in racially insensitive photos. “It was a mistake,” Harrison said in an interview that will air Thursday morning on “Good Morning America,” which you can watch above. “I made a mistake. I am an imperfect man. I made a mistake and I own that.” Thursday’s “GMA” interview, which airs on the same network as the longrunning reality TV franchise, marks his first interview since he stepped away from the ABC dating series’ currently airing season amid backlash over his support for a current contestant accused of racist behavior. Also Read: 'The Real' Hosts Applaud Emmanuel Acho's New 'Bachelor' Gig: 'He Can Have a Real Conversation' In a Feb. 9 interview with former “Bachelorette” Rachel Lindsay for “Extra,” Harrison defended Rachael Kirkconnell — a frontrunner on Matt James’ currently airing season of “The Bachelor,” the first to feature a Black bachelor — for a resurfaced photo in which she appears to be attending a plantation-themed fraternity formal in 2018. Harrison was roundly criticized for the interview and his treatment of Lindsay, leading to two public apologies from Harrison, a public apology from Kirkconnell, and the Feb. 13 announcement that Harrison would temporarily be “stepping aside” as host of the show. (Emmanuel Acho has been tapped to replace him for the upcoming live season finale and “After the Final Rose” special on March 15.) “The historic season of The Bachelor should not be marred or overshadowed by my mistakes or diminished by my actions. To that end, I have consulted with Warner Bros. and ABC and will be stepping aside for a period of time and will not join for the After the Final Rose special,” Harrison said at the time. “I am dedicated to getting educated on a more profound and productive level than ever before.” A little over a week after Harrison made the announcement he was stepping aside, James posted a lengthy statement on Instagram calling the situation “devastating and heartbreaking.” “Chris’s failure to receive and understand the emotional labor that my friend Rachel Lindsay was taking on by graciously and patiently explaining the racist history of the Antebellum South, a painful history that every American should understand intimately, was troubling and painful to watch,” James wrote. “As Black people and allies immediately knew and understood, it was a clear reflection of a much larger issue that The Bachelor franchise has fallen short on addressing adequately for years.” On Monday, “Bachelor” producers issued a statement condemning the online harassment Lindsay has received over her interview with Harrison and her remarks of uncertainty regarding if Harrison should remain host of the ABC reality dating franchise, which led her to delete her Instagram account.

Why Delroy Lindo’s Soliloquy in ‘Da 5 Bloods’ Differs From His Shakespeare Roles...
29 minutes ago
This story about Delroy Lindo in “Da 5 Bloods” first appeared in the Oscar Nominations Preview issue of TheWrap’s awards magazine When Delroy Lindo talks about his character, Paul, in Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods,” he’s hesitant to break down the ins and outs of what makes the Vietnam vet tick. “There’s a danger that every time one deconstructs an aspect of Paul’s character, his personality, I am demystifying who this man is in a way I don’t think is helpful,” Lindo said. “In many ways, I want the man to exist and speak for himself on his own terms.” Maybe that has something to do with the travesty of Lindo’s monumental performance being overlooked by both the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards voters. When you look into Lindo’s eyes, you see not just Paul but the 50 years of baggage and torment he brings with him from the Vietnam War. Also Read: 'TheWrap-Up' Podcast: Spike Lee and Delroy Lindo From 'Da 5 Bloods' We see it most clearly when he erupts after a salesman pesters him to buy a chicken or when he’s evoking his father’s sacrifice on the beaches of Normandy to a stubborn Frenchman. It’s not just rage he’s expressing, but guilt and grief that has led Paul to feel suspicious of others and perhaps led him to vote for Donald Trump. Lindo’s preparation included speaking to Vietnam vets still experiencing PTSD, as well as reading literature, watching films and discussing the movie with Lee and the rest of his cast, which included Clarke Peters, Norm Lewis, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Jonathan Majors and Chadwick Boseman. But all of that simply helped him inhabit the “prodigious vessel” that was Paul. “I’m bringing as much as I can to flesh that out and to enable Paul, my Paul, to live and breathe,” he said. “The notion of loss is huge for Paul. And loss is not insignificant to me.” Also Read: Spike Lee's 'Da 5 Bloods' Wins Best Film and Director From National Board of Review Late in the film, as Paul has ventured on his own into the jungle, he addresses the camera with a jittery yet focused and magnetic soliloquy. It’s not unlike the many tragic Shakespearean characters Lindo has portrayed on stage — but, he said, there’s a key difference. “In a soliloquy, you’re speaking to the person that has the answer, or you’re speaking to the person who you hope has the answer,” he said. “From that point of view, the camera was the other person that I was talking to and expressing my truth. People have referenced that Paul is losing his mind, and I have to tell you for me at that point, I’m not thinking that at all. I’m speaking my truth to this person that is in front of me. I’m speaking about reality as I see it at that moment in my life. And frankly, I’m really clear about what has happened.” Paul says it himself as he sings Marvin Gaye’s “God Is My Friend” just before he meets his fate, insisting, “I ain’t never been more sober in my life.” Lindo sees things clearly, too, and he’s grateful that audiences have been able to see Paul as more than just the sum of his imperfections. “When you have a part like this, meaning such a multifaceted, emotionally complex part, you jump in, you do the very best you can with finding and giving expression to the various aspects of who the human being is,” he said. “To have audiences say they got it, that’s profoundly rewarding.” Read more from the Nominations Preview issue here.

Why TCM Is Showing Problematic Films Like ‘Gone With the Wind’ – And Won’t Rule Out Woody Allen Classics...
32 minutes ago
Movies like “Gone With the Wind,” “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and John Wayne’s “The Searchers” are all-time Hollywood classics and beloved by many. But they also have material touching on their depiction of nonwhite characters that could make audiences cringe, especially in 2021. Beginning on Thursday, Turner Classic Movies plans to re-introduce these problematic films in a four-night series called “Reframed: Classic Films in the Rearview Mirror,” that aims to shed modern light on the history and shortcomings of 14 different classic Hollywood films. “It’s not about censoring the film, it’s not about treating your audience as though they’re not intelligent enough to see the issues, and it’s not putting a childproof lock on the movie or a caution label,” Alicia Malone, one of the hosts of the “Reframed” series, told TheWrap. “It’s about giving it some context.” Also Read: HBO Max to Keep 6 Woody Allen Movies to 'Allow Viewers to Make Their Own Informed Decisions' The discourse around some of these films has been extensively covered. Mickey Rooney’s portrayal of a stereotypical Asian landlord in “Breakfast With Tiffany’s” is a well-known sore spot. The portrayal of Native Americans in many Westerns, but especially films like “The Searchers” or “Stagecoach,” has long been criticized. TCM host Jacqueline Stewart recently filmed an introduction to run before “Gone With the Wind” on HBO Max that discusses how the film romanticizes the Antebellum South. In the spirit of the series, Tabesh actually recommended that HBO Max include a video intro of someone talking about “Gone With the Wind” rather than a simple warning label or disclaimer calling it objectionable. “A lot of this is stuff that we as a society are just trying to re-address ourselves,” Malone said. “It’s nothing that was untoward when they were making the film, but it’s stuff that we can see is problematic through our modern lens.” Also Read: 'Gone With the Wind' vs 'Song of the South': Why Hollywood Should Confront, Not Erase, a Problematic Past Alicia Malone (Courtesy of TCM) Charlie Tabesh, TCM’s SVP of programming, said that each of the films in the “Reframed” series is a “true classic,” not an obscure title, something that has stood the test of time and exactly the sort of thing you would expect to see shown on TCM. Some films on the list you may not have thought about as problematic. Katharine Hepburn’s “Woman of the Year” is an early example of a strong feminist character — but one who gives up her career to become a housewife struggling to make toast for her husband. “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” was seen as progressive in 1967 but raises eyebrows for Sidney Poitier’s character today. And there’s 1954’s “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers,” which Malone called a “delightful musical but it involves a lot of kidnapping of women.” And Malone also pushed to include Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” in the lineup, which has recently been reassessed for how it portrays a transgender character as different, monstrous, evil and suffering from a mental illness. “What does it mean if you have a character who is dressing up in a film and is the scary monster of the movie? How does that make audiences then think about transgender people when they meet them in real life? What does it say about womanhood in general?” Malone said. “That’s one I’ve started to think about differently in the past couple of years. It doesn’t mean I don’t still love it for all of the reasons why it should be enjoyed, but it’s just given me another layer on top of it.” Also Read: Soon-to-Be Pulled Dr Seuss Titles Shoot Up Amazon's Best-Seller List “Gone With the Wind” (Warner Bros.) As part of the series, other TCM hosts Jacqueline Stewart, Ben Mankiewicz, Eddie Muller and Dave Karger will join in discussions of the film in prefaces that include both their classic qualities as well as how modern audiences might reassess them. “Each of us don’t pretend to have all the answers, and we’re not saying to the audience this is how you should feel about a movie, but it is interesting to grapple with that idea of loving a film and being able to appreciate so many qualities of them,” Malone said. “These days these can sometimes be quite binary; you love it or you hate it, it’s good or it’s bad, and getting to have discussions in the gray area was something that interested me.” She continued: “We definitely didn’t want to ruin anyone’s cinematic experience with these films. We didn’t want to layer in all these problems and then be like, ‘Enjoy the movie!'” Also Read: Woody Allen Is Too 'Radioactive' for a US Studio to Work With Him Again Tabesh said the “Reframed” series was designed to focus solely on the content of films that may not have aged well over time. But he allowed that future editions might explore the works of artists or filmmakers who have been accused of serious wrongdoing, such as Woody Allen and Roman Polanski. Allen’s “Manhattan” and “Annie Hall” were both screened last April as part of a series about New York City cinema — but Tabesh said we shouldn’t expect a full Allen retrospective anytime soon. “We wouldn’t not play a certain movie, partly because film is so collaborative. If you’re going to get rid of any movie because of the director or an actor, you’re going to get rid of everyone else who worked on that film and that’s kind of an issue,” Tabesh said. “And gosh, if you look at any movie we play, you might be able to find someone who was horrible and we might morally object to them. But having said that, there are people we wouldn’t necessarily pay tribute to. We wouldn’t do a Roman Polanski tribute on TCM even if we play ‘Chinatown.'” TCM’s mission is broader than any one artist. “We’re very careful not to delete films from the film canon, edit movies or cancel people,” Malone said. “We present the films in their entirety, we just make people aware of what was going on at the time.” Related stories from TheWrap:Why Woody Allen Wasn't Charged: a Timeline of Dylan Farrow's AccusationsDylan Farrow Implores 'Empathy, Compassion' in Watching Her 7-Year-Old Self Accuse Woody Allen on VideoWoody Allen's Publisher Says 'Allen v Farrow' Used Audiobook Without Permission......
