Daniel Craig Crashes Rami Malek's SNL Episode For Prince Audition Sketch
No time to die, but plenty of time for sketch comedy, apparently: Daniel Craig made multiple surprise appearances during Rami Malek’s Saturday Night Live hosting debut over the weekend.Given how the two shared relatively little screen time in the latest James Bond flick, perhaps the co-stars had some unfinished business, as Craig faced off against Malek once again ― this time for the role of Prince in a very nonexistent Jordan Peele biopic.In the sketch, Malek first appears alongside Kenan Thompson, both of them in dueling Prince outfits. The two, playing themselves, audition for the film while Peele (Chris Redd) and casting directors (Punkie Johnson and Ego Nwodim) look on appraisingly.Both Prince impressions are inarguably terrible, but the group ultimately decides that Thompson is right for the part. “I’m sorry,” Redd’s Peele says. “I just don’t think I can cast a white guy to play Prince.” “But my parents are from Egypt, right? And that’s in Africa,” Malek replies. “Doesn’t Prince, like ― doesn’t he transcend race?”And just like that, Craig, also playing a doofy version of himself, enters the room to steal the part out from under both of them. Clearly misunderstanding the assignment, the British actor is dressed as a full-blown medieval prince instead of the legendary musician, but he auditions anyway. After a few guitar licks and a major Craig charm offensive, the sketch ends with Peele telling the actor, “That was bad, but you’re James Bond, so you got the part.” Craig also popped up in a later sketch alongside Cecily Strong, with the two playing a couple who attend a performance by the European (or... something) singer Angelo (new featured player Aristotle Athari). Soon enough, Malek, as the avant-garde performer “Todd,” joins Angelo on stage to showcase some increasingly bizarre improvisational dance moves.Craig has hosted Saturday Night Live twice, most recently in March 2020 ahead of the release of No Time to Die, which finally came out this month after being long-delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Rami jumping in Daniel's arm was the perfect ending #snl#NoTimeToDie#RamiMalekpic.twitter.com/2qAymNGFPn—

Dominic Raab Says There's No Sign Abuse Towards MPs Is Abating: 'We're Vilified'
Dominic Raab admitted that abuse towards MPs is only increasing as they are “vilified” by the media when speaking on Monday. MPs’ security has become a major talking point after Sir David Amess was stabbed to death on Friday during a constituency surgery just five years after Labour MP Jo Cox was murdered.Speaking to BBC Breakfast, the justice secretary and deputy prime minister said: “I think a lot of people would be surprised at how widespread [this abuse] is and not just abuse but serious concerted threats.“We do see the constant vilification of MPs online.”“The coarsening of the debate and the polarisation has led to attacks on the individuals rather than the topic,” Raab also claimed.He went on to tell broadcasters he has received significant death threats himself, including suggestions of acid attacks.Raab said: “There will be people who have had worse abuse than me.“I’ve had three threats to life and limb over the last few years, so of course I take it very seriously.“We need to respond to it, we need to make sure we are doing everything we can.”He later said these threats were dealt with externally and that he had more protection during his time as foreign secretary – but when he was a junior minister, he felt significantly less secure.Raab told Sky’s Kay Burley that the “elephant in the room” in this debate is the “amount of online hate we all get, it’s out of control”. "The online hate we get is out of control"@DominicRaab says the "vile" abuse aimed at MPs online has to stop.#KayBurley UF pic.twitter.com/qyy6Q8tV3n— Kay Burley (@KayBurley) October 18, 2021“The amount of vile abuse directed at MPs – in particular, female MPs – I think has got to stop,” the deputy prime minister said. “To be honest with you, since 2010 when I first became an MP, the risk to us has increased. I think particularly at the local level.“There’s clearly a lot of people with mental health issues, and the way MPs are out there in the public domain, they can become a lightning rod for [abuse].”Asked on BBC Radio 4′s Today programme whether the online abuse is actually correlated to the physical threats coming from the far-right, Raab said: “I can’t point to the hard evidence which shows it but intuitively, it feels to me that those who are vulnerable, who are mentally unwell, who are risk of radicalising and who will jump on either a narrative or a pretext for violence or lower-level intimidation, I think it does feel there is that link.”The senior minister added: “I think I am more at risk from those who are mentally unwell than from a concerted terror attack.”He added that there has been “ebbing trust” in MPs since the expenses scandal from 2009.Yet Raab also made it clear that he still stands by free speech, and explained that he did not want those “who want to paralyse our democracy” to win in the bid to increase security for MPs.Related...Tory MP David Amess Dies After Being Stabbed At Constituency SurgeryDominic Raab Not In Charge Of Country While Boris Johnson Holidays In MarbellaBoris Johnson To Lead Commons Tributes To David Amess

Billy Porter Is Not Here For Harry Styles Wearing A Dress On The Cover Of Vogue
Harry Styles made headlines and history when he wore a dress on the cover of US Vogue last year, making him the first solo male cover star in the magazine’s history.The former One Direction singer was chosen to front Vogue’s first gender neutral shoot in which he wears a Gucci dress and skirt.Harry told the magazine he thinks womenswear is “amazing” and that “clothes are there to experiment with”..@harry_styles is our December issue cover star!Read how the star is making and playing by his own rules: https://t.co/tQPLi5OEtjpic.twitter.com/AxZgxE68Rx— Vogue Magazine (@voguemagazine) November 13, 2020But Pose star Billy Porter, who wore a gown on the red carpet of the 2019 Oscars, thinks the magazine made a mistake by using “a straight white man in a dress” to grace the landmark cover. “I’m not dragging Harry Styles, but he is the one you’re going to try and use to represent this new conversation? He doesn’t care, he’s just doing it because it’s the thing to do,” Billy told The Times.“This is politics for me. This is my life. I had to fight my entire life to get to the place where I could wear a dress to the Oscars and not be gunned now. All he has to do is be white and straight.”The award-winning star went on to suggest that he “personally changed the game” for men choosing to embrace skirts and dresses as part of their wardrobe.As well as acting and singing, Billy is famed for his incredible red carpet looks. As well as his custom-made Christian Siriano Oscars tuxedo dress, he also wore a stunning white suit with train to the 2020 Emmys and dazzled in a rainbow coloured halter neck dress to mark the start of this year’s Pride Month.While many of Harry’s fans and peers loved his Vogue cover, certain right-wing critics were less enthusiastic, including US pundit Candace Owens, who commented at the time: “Bring back manly men.”View this post on InstagramA post shared by @harrystylesHarry quickly responded to the criticism by posting a picture of himself in a suit with frills eating a banana with the caption: “Bring back manly man.”HARRY STYLES:Celebs Defend Harry Styles After He Gets Attacked For His Vogue Cover DressHarry Styles Proves What I've Always Known: Effeminate Men Aren't Any Less MasculineHarry Styles Pokes Fun At Vogue Dress Critics With Defiant Instagram Post

Dune: science fiction’s answer to Lord of the Rings
Frank Herbert’s novel, now adapted for cinema with Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya, is finally getting the recognition it deserves, agree authors including Neil Gaiman and Jeff VanderMeerIf science fiction has an answer to fantasy’s The Lord of the Rings – JRR Tolkien’s epic saga of the battle to defeat the Dark Lord, Sauron – then Frank Herbert’s Dune has to be a strong contender. Published in 1965, it is the story of the desert planet Arrakis, known as Dune; of the rare and priceless “spice” that can be found there; of the Atreides family, sent to Dune’s dangerous surface to rule; of its native Fremen people, who are capable of surviving in this inhospitable environment. Of the giant sandworms, hundreds of metres long, which hunt beneath the sands, and of Paul Atreides’ reluctant ascent to messianic status. And it is finally getting the mainstream attention it deserves, thanks to Denis Villeneuve’s film adaptation, out in the UK on 21 October.I first read Dune when I was 18. It left behind deep, haunting memories: Paul Atreides chanting the Litany against Fear as his humanity is tested by the Gom Jabbar; the first appearance of a sandworm, vast and magnificent; the complexity of Paul’s rise to become the Bene Gesserit’s Kwisatz Haderach, the Fremen’s Mahdi (like much of the Fremen’s culture, the word is lifted from the vocabulary of Islam). As one character puts it: “No more terrible disaster could befall your people than for them to fall into the hands of a Hero.” Continue reading...

They fear the situation will be exacerbated by the nationality and borders bill, which they say makes it harder to identify victims. Continue reading...
