*Tiffany Haddish visited “The Tonight Show” Monday night, and of course the first order of business was her noggin.
“My man cut it for me last week. I’m like cutting it every two weeks,” the comedian told host Jimmy Fallon. She went on to discuss how shaving her hair off helped her learn about herself.
“It’s very smooth. It kinda feels like a penis, and that’s kinda nice,” she said, rubbing her head. “That might’ve been too far, but I’m just sharing the knowledge.”
Haddish also discussed her Emmy nomination for her “Black Mitzvah” stand-up special and talked about how women can make positive change by using sex. Fallon also had her take part in the “Wheel of Opinon” game.
Filming on ‘Black Panther’ Sequel to Start in Summer 2021, Letitia Wright Could Takeover Role
*Marvel Studios has confirmed that production on “Black Panther 2” will begin sometime in July 2021.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, production was initially scheduled to begin in March 2021, but that was scrapped upon news of Chadwick Boseman’s death. The titular star died on Aug. 28 following his years-long private battle with cancer.
We previously reported, while details of the “Black Panther” sequel remain on the low, executive producer Victoria Alonso said the follow-up to the blockbuster action film will not use a digital double for the late actor.
“No. There’s only one Chadwick, and he’s no longer with us. Sadly, our king has died in real life, not only in fiction, and we’re taking a little time to see how we continue the story and how to honor this chapter of what has unexpectedly happened to us, so painful and terrible to be honest,” Alonso said in an interview with Argentine newspaper Clarín. “Chadwick wasn’t only a wonderful human being, every day of the 5 years we spent together, but also, I believe, that what he did as a character elevated us as a company, and has left his moment on history.”
Producers behind Disney/Marvel’s “Black Panther” are said to be unsure on how to move forward with the sequel following the death of Boseman, who played the title role in the first film.
Disney is faced with two options on how to proceed with the “Black Panther” franchise without Boseman. Hire a new actor and risk pissing off the fandom or allow Letitia Wright, who plays Black Panther’s sister Shuri, to take over the role (which actually occurs in one of the comic series).
The actress is expected to return with a more prominent role in BP2.
Alonso confirmed that Marvel hopes to pay tribute to Boseman’s legacy.
“Because Chadwick was not only a wonder of a human being every day for the five years that we spent together, but it also seems to me that as a character what he did elevated us as a company and has left his moment in history. I know that sometimes two months go by or three months go by in production and you say, ‘Well, it was a long time.’ But it is not a long time. We have to think carefully about what we are going to do and how and think about how we are going to honor the franchise.”
Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, and Angela Bassett are among the actors who are expected to reprise their roles.
Catch Holiday Cheer With ‘The Christmas Chronicle: Part 2’ Cast (Watch)
*It’s the sequel to the 2018 film “The Christmas Chronicles.”
Kurt Russell reprises his role as Santa Clause, alongside his Mrs. Claus, Goldie Hawn in “The Christmas Chronicles: Part 2.”
The Netflix film also stars Tyrese Gibson who plays Jazhir Bruno‘s dad.
EUR correspondent Fahnia Thomas talked to the stars about hot holiday toys, falling trees, and German Christmas.
Fahnia Thomas: What is your fondest childhood holiday memory?
Goldie Hawn: When my next-door neighbor came to our Christmas party – we had put the Christmas tree in front of the side door – and walked into the tree knocking down the entire tree and all the decorations. We had a big laugh!
Kurt Russell: I have three fabulous sisters and we had a German Christmas – meaning we had to wait for it to get dark outside – and we had a telephone pole 50 feet from the house and we couldn’t open our first presents until we couldn’t see the telephone pole. The last half hour was torture.
GH: I never heard that before about the telephone pole.
We did it the other way around. You go to bed, with sugar plums in your head, it’s Christmas Eve and you wake up in the morning … The worst part was one year Kurt and I had just finished tying the last ribbon, we were exhausted and we were going upstairs and Kurt meets the kids coming down the stairs – we had no sleep.
KR: It was 5:30 in the morning and we were up all night!
FT: What was the hot holiday toy you wanted or got when you were growing up?
Tyrese Gibson: I remember when I got the first original Nintendo and it had Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! And Super Mario Bros. We used to play a video game called The Legend of Zelda too.
Jazhir Bruno: When I got my first Xbox I was super excited! My grandmother got it for me.
KR: I only had one and I said, ‘if I get this I’ll never ask for another Christmas present…and I never did. I wanted a drum set so bad when I was 15 years old. I can’t believe I got it!
GH: A Schwinn bike and I got it.

‘Paradise City’ Set’s Digital Release Date for Dec 4 After Urbanworld Film Festival Premiere
*LOS ANGELES, CA — After making its World Premiere at Urbanworld Film Festival, the feature drama PARADISE CITY sets a digital release for December 4, 2020, with presale tickets starting on November 20. Starring Chris Petrovski (Madam Secretary) and American rapper Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones, the film will be available to stream on these platforms: iTunes, Amazon, Google, Vudu, Tubi, Pluto, and more.
Inspired by true events, PARADISE CITY follows three men from different walks of life: a young cop with a checkered past (Kareem Saviñon), an ex-con turned devout Muslim (Hassan “Giant” Bradley), and a junkie with affluent roots (Petrovski). Their worlds collide when a plot to justify New York City’s counter-terrorism campaign against homegrown extremists is uncovered. The men find themselves targeted by a corrupt police network led by Chief Frank Murdoch (Sticky Fingaz) and a dynastic family, newly led by the daughter, Bianca (Laura Kamin).
Director John Marco Lopez said: “It’s truly an honor to have my third feature film released to a large audience in 2020. We’re jumping off from the point of view of a crime drama, but we’re going to a number of different places – emotionally & spiritually. We’re also crossing a few different genres in a hopefully, exciting, and fresh way. We’ve put together a lot of challenging productions over the years, but this is certainly the biggest in terms of the epic scale of our storytelling. We shot over two years, over multiple urban and rural locations, with a massive cast and huge set pieces. For an indie film like ours – it doesn’t get much bigger. There’s no question, it’s the most ambitious film we’ve made.”
“Collaborating with John and creating this character together was something really special. It was simultaneously the most challenging and rewarding experience I’ve ever had,” said Chris Petrovski.
“Playing the role of Murdoch gave me a chance to stretch my acting chops by being a character I’ve never been before. Plus the writing and black & white cinematography was amazing,” commented Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones.
Written and Directed by John Marco Lopez, who’s last narrative feature – the political thriller – The Hudson Tribes debuted in 2016 and starred Godrey, Cobra Kai’s Vanessa Rubio, and The American’s Owen Campbell. PARADISE CITY is executive produced by Kevin A. Lopez, with music by Zak Engel, and features Robert Morgan, Gordon Joseph Weiss, Roger Hendricks Simon, Christopher Tramantana, Thaddeus Street, Leslie Lopez, Dexter Strong, and Christopher “Mr. Dead” Davis.
