John Travolta Case: And The List Goes On…

A former Royal Caribbean cruise room attendant accuses John Travolta in a federal lawsuit of stripping off a robe and pushing against him, then offering him $12,000 to keep quiet.

Fabian Zanzi alleges the actor said, “Take me, I will take care of you, please,” during a food delivery to his cabin in June 2009, according to the U.S. District Court lawsuit filed June 21 in Los Angeles.

Zanzi, who first made these allegations to the Spanish-language news outlet 24 Horas, is seeking unspecified damages for assault and battery and emotional distress. This is the latest legal action against Travolta filed by a man alleging improper sexual conduct. Travolta’s attorney has fiercely denied all the allegations.


“This is another ludicrous lawsuit with inane claims,” says Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer. “It is obvious that Mr. Zanzi and his lawyers are looking for their 15 minutes of fame.” Singer says that Zanzi didn’t mention any sexual contact in his handwritten report to Royal Caribbean. “That glaring omission speaks volumes,” says Singer.

Zanzi claims he reported the incident immediately to a supervisor but that he wasn’t allowed “to write down any information regarding the nudity and/or sexual contact,” according to the lawsuit. Zanzi was also “restrained” to a “segregated room” for five days until Travolta left the ship, according to the lawsuit.

Singer calls this last claim a “dubious allegation” and notes that Zanzi continued to work for Royal Caribbean for years.

The case keeps getting more and more interesting, don’t you think? So, we gotta ask again: Do you think Zanzi is telling the truth, or is he just after his “15 minutes of fame”? Do you think there are more “victims” out there?

How Andrew Garfield Got The ‘Spiderman’ Role

The Amazing Spider-Man” will be swinging back into movie theaters this summer with a new director at the helm — the appropriately named Marc Webb (“(500) Days of Summer”) — and a new leading man behind the mask.  But how did Andrew Garfield, a 28-year-old acclaimed dramatic actor from England best known for “The Social Network,” score the role of a teenager from Queens who does whatever a spider can?

Matt McDaniel: “For you, what was the moment when you just knew that Andrew was the right guy to play Peter Parker?”


Marc Webb:   “…This sounds ridiculous, but it’s true.  We were doing a scene that’s not in the movie, where he was eating a cheeseburger and telling Gwen to like calm down or to — trying to put her at ease, while he is eating food.  And the way he ate this food — it was such a dumb task — such a dumb independent activity that you give to an actor to do, and he did it. [Laughs] …there’s something in the way he embodied and committed to that really tiny minutia — I just hadn’t seen before. I can’t explain exactly what I felt like it worked, but that was it… He sort of checked all the boxes…”

MM: “Was that chemistry between Andrew and Emma there from the very beginning?”

MW: “Yeah, we screen tested them together… and he took a minute for him to get back up to speed with her because she was so funny. And then they really brought out really great parts of the other’s performance. Of course, it was there, and that’s why we cast that dynamic. It was really great to watch it on screen.”

Let’s ask the audience — what are your expectations for the new Spiderman movie? Feel free to voice out your opinions below!

Ashton Kutcher to Portray Steve Jobs in Indie Biopic

Actor Ashton Kutcher, who got his break on “That ’70s Show,” will go back to the 1970s to play tech visionary Steve Jobs in an indie film about Jobs’ early life and the founding of Apple.

Production on the film, “Jobs,” is scheduled to begin in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his hit CBS series “Two and a Half Men,” reports Variety, the film-industry trade publication. It will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern (“Swing Vote”) and “will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple,” according to Variety.

The timing of the story, which was published Sunday on Variety’s website, combined with Kutcher’s well-known love of pranks, led some to dismiss it as an April Fools’ joke. But CNN confirmed Monday through a representative for Kutcher that the actor has signed on for the role.


Jeff Sneider, the reporter who wrote the Variety article, said on Twitter on Sunday that the movie will follow Jobs from when he and Steve Wozniak founded Apple in 1976 to when Jobs returned to the company in the late 1990s after being forced out. It won’t cover Jobs’ later years, he said.

Kutcher’s movie will face competition from Sony Pictures, which is developing its own Jobs biopic based on the best-selling book by Walter Isaacson. A CNN.com report last fall speculated on which actor might play Jobs in that movie and threw out some names — James McAvoy, Crispin Glover, Stanley Tucci, Noah Wyle — but failed to mention Kutcher.
