‘Better Call Saul’ star writing essays

 

NEW YORK — “Better Call Saul” star Bob Odenkirk has nabbed a book deal to write essays about his life and comic journey.

Random House announced last week that the still-untitled book will explore Odenkirk’s career working at Chicago’s Second City to writing and acting on “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Mr. Show,” “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul.”

Odenkirk arrived at “Breaking Bad” in its second season as welcome comic relief, then grew Saul into a full-fledged scene stealer and has become the star in the quirky prequel “Better Call Saul.”

Director opens ups about male privilege

 

NEW YORK — Nate Parker, the actor-director dealing with a 17-year-old rape case casting a storm over his new film and career, opened up about the incident in a new interview.

Parker spoke about understanding his male privilege and the definition of consent in a lengthy interview last week with Ebony magazine in Los Angeles. Earlier this month, the Hollywood trade press began to run stories about a 1999 rape allegation made against Parker when he was a student at Penn State University.

Parker was charged and later acquitted. The accuser killed herself in 2012.

Earlier this month, he gave two interviews to Variety and Deadline that received much attention. He told Ebony that in those interviews he “was acting as if I was the victim, and that’s wrong.”

Parker wrote, directed and will star in “The Birth of a Nation,” out in October. The film, about Nat Turner and the slave rebellion, is already generating Oscar buzz.

‘Spider-Man’ swings in to visit sick kids

 

LOS ANGELES — Tom Holland swung into a children’s hospital in his Spidey suit.

The actor posted a photo of himself last week on Instagram smiling in costume at the Egleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta, where “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is currently in production. He debuted as the latest rendition of the web-slinger earlier this year in “Captain America: Civil War.”

Holland said in the post that meeting the children at the hospital was “such a wonderful experience, and you’re all such little inspirations.”

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” is scheduled to debut July 7, 2017. The film also stars Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei and Zendaya.

A spokesman for Sony declined to respond to a report that Zendaya will be portraying Peter Parker’s love interest, Mary Jane Watson, in the “Spider-Man” reboot.

Banks will teach Stanford ‘brand’ class

 

LOS ANGELES — Tyra Banks is trading the catwalk for the classroom.

The former host of “America’s Next Top Model” and “FABLife” will teach students at Stanford University next May. Banks will serve as a guest lecturer for two weeks for a class on creating and protecting a personal brand.

The school says about 25 graduate students will receive instruction from the mogul and model on how to use media to showcase their business acumen and handle press exposure as a business leader.

The class will culminate with the students sharing their personal brands with the public through video platforms.

Banks launched a beauty line in 2014.
