If Brooklyn Nine-Nine gets cancelled, the news would hit co-creator Dan Goor like a city bus. (Too soon?)
Discussing the Andy Samberg comedy’s uncertain future with TVLine, Goor says that fans are “going to riot” if the Nine-Nine doesn’t return to active duty for Season 5.
“[Fans] are going to find the presidents of Fox and they are going to deface their houses,” he says with a laugh. “No, I’m kidding. Probably shouldn’t say that… I know I would riot. I would be very upset.”
Brooklyn Nine-Nine — which returns after a four-month hiatus on Tuesday, April 11 (8/7c) — is one of a handful of Fox sitcoms (including New Girl and The Last Man on Earth) that has not yet been renewed for the 2017-2018 season, which may prove to be a problem. Known for ending each season on a cliffhanger, it doesn’t sound as though Goor & Co. have any intention of tying up loose ends in the Season 4 finale.
“If you’re asking if we wrote a potential series finale, we did not,” he stresses. “We do not want this to be the series finale.”
Goor, however, remains confident that Detective Jake Peralta will not be forced into an early retirement.
“We’ve received a tremendous amount of support from the network, and I’m sure our pickup will be coming at any point.”
The first same-sex wedding on U.S. television – network TV, at that – aired on the Fox sitcom Roc way back in 1991. The Season One episode “Can’t Help Loving That Man,” focuses on Roc’s uncle (Shaft’s Richard Roundtree) revealing he’s gay, and the family’s subsequent struggle to accept his lifestyle, ultimately culminating with Roc (Charles S. Dutton) hosting the ceremony in his home. The episode took home a GLAAD award that year for the positive portrayal.
a note: the family’s subsequent struggle was really only one family member, his brother. His nephews were basically shocked and uncomfortable at first but came around quickly because, as they simply put it, it’s what made their uncle happy. His niece (the title character’s wife) was immediately accepting. The only one who acted up was his brother…who eventually came around by the end of the episode.
also… this is the cast of Roc
the FIRST same sex wedding on U.S. tv was delivered by a Black cast.
AND it was an interracial wedding.
deal with it.
you can watch the episode here (it’s the first one):
“There are places I remember All my life, though some have changed Some forever not for better Some have gone and some remainAll these places had their moments With lovers and friends I still can recall Some are dead and some are living In my life I’ve loved them allBut of all these friends and lovers There is no one compares with you And these memories lose their meaning When I think of love as something newThough I know I’ll never lose affection For people and things that went before I know I’ll often stop and think about them In my life I love you more"
hi, can u please list/name some southeast asian- especially Filipina- actors
H! Coincidentally I’ve been thinking of finally making a tag page for the blog based on actors’ ethnicities. The list is not full, obviously - just those actors I know and have on this blog, also here are only actors that work in Western TV/Film industry:
Actors of Filipinx descent:
Rudy Robles(1906–1970) - one of the first Filipino actors to appear in Hollywood movies. Robles was born in Tacloban. He began his schooling in the Philippines and then emigrated to the United States. He completed high school and college in California, where he excelled in debating and acting. Producer Samuel Goldwyn reportedly discovered and gave him the screen name Rudy Robles, whilst he was working as a bellhop at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Hollywood. His credits include pre- and post-World War II films, as Lt. Yabo in The Real Glory, starring Gary Cooper and David Niven. Among his uncredited roles are The Adventures of Martin Eden (1942), Wake Island (1942), Manila Calling (1942), Nocturne (1946), and Singapore (1947), starring Ava Gardner and Fred McMurray. Robles also played a Filipino assassin in the 1942 film Across the Pacific. After the war, he returned to the Philippines, where he raised a family and started to produce, direct and star in his own films. One of his last on-screen appearances was in an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents in 1956. (x)
Lea Salonga - singer and actress best known for her roles in musical theatre, for supplying the singing voices of two Disney Princesses. Last seen on TV - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, as Aunt Myrna (cameo).
