RAY FISHER IS JUSTICE LEAGUE'S NEW HERO

    
RAY FISHER IS JUSTICE LEAGUE'S NEW HERO

I recently had the chance to chat with a local hometown hero, literally. Meet Ray Fisher. He landed the role of Cyborg in a little film titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice due out in 2016. I'm kidding of course, this film is anything but small with Henry Cavill reprising the role of Superman and Ben Affleck taking over the cape as Batman. With such big names attached and Zack Snyder (300, Man of Steal, Watchmen) Fisher knows this is the role of a lifetime. Primarily known for his theater work, he played Muhammad Ali last year in an off- Broadway play. We have to wonder if this is a dream come true coming from the small town of Lawnside, NJ.. I was sure to tell Fisher that everyone from home is just as excited for him. This is what he had to say about the growing support from Lawnside, Haddon-Heights, Barrington and the rest of South Jersey.

Ray:
This is very new to me, a whole new world. Everything up to this point has been primarily theater. I didn't expect anything like this for another 10-15 years. Everything seems to be moving really fast! The out pour has been fantastic especially from our community. It can be lonely when you feel alone.

But right now he's feeling nothing but "blessed" with this opportunity. He's grateful that young men like my son who will attend Haddon-Heights High also can look at him as a role model and also that he's already accomplished so much in his 27 years. So who did he have to beat to get this role? Truthfully, he doesn't even know who else was up for the part.

Ray:
Thankfully it doesn't matter. I was playing Muhammad Ali in the New York Theatre Workshop and attracted my agent and manager from there. The play got good reviews. People were really kind to me in their reviews. From there I was asked to fly to L.A. to meet the casting directors. They told me they were looking for a certain type of character for a certain type of movie. They couldn't tell me much more just that it was for the upcoming untitled Batman v Superman movie. That was all they had to say. I came back to N.Y. and put something on tape for them to see. From there they flew me to Detroit to test for the film. I am learning something new everyday. Some from the actors but also a lot from the production side. It's unlike anything I've ever seen, it's like Disneyworld for an actor.

He had to admit he was introduced to the character Cyborg like many of us from Cartoon Network's "Teen Titians". Because this is the first time Cyborg is being seen in a live-action film there is some pressure to satisfy the comic fans.

Ray:
Luckily no one has ever seen him in a movie before, but no one has seen me in a movie either. For me it's about finding what's unique about Victor Stone/ Cyborg's story. I understands that people feel strongly about these characters. I'm excited to see them bring more of the comic characters to the forefront and choosing to add some diversity in the genre on screen. Especially black characters and characters of color/minorities.

So being that this is the first time Cyborg is being portrayed by anyone I asked if there were any characters he was drawing from pat or present, hero or villain.

Ray:
Chris Terrio who is writing the script is very involved with his actors. We have the new 52's, (a 2011 revamped re-launch by DC comics of it's monthly books) where Cyborg actually becomes a part of the Justice League when in the past he was just a part of Teen Titians, but things may change for the sake of the film so that it'll all make sense. So no, I'm really not drawing from anyone in particular. I feel that Cyborg has to be unique, extremely unique.

With Fisher already confirmed in not only being involved in Batman v Superman, The next two Justice League films, and in Cyborg's on stand alone film in 2020 I had to ask if there was any anxiousness about shooting his character's story, and most importantly if there was anything her could reveal about Cyborg's costume or makeup.

Ray:
No

Nardwuar Hits Ab-Soul With Several Surprises During Their Talk (Video)



"...if you say something too weird I might punch you."

Whoa...take it easy Ab-Soul. It's just Nardwuar, the Hip-Hop Serviette. Just some quirky questioning; and always cool convo (plus gifts).

Nardwuar interviews Ab-Soul at Fortune Sound Club in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Haaa! But see how Nard 'walked through' that threat and got on with the interview though? He a G!

Big K.R.I.T. On A Musical Voyage To 'Cadillactica' (Video)



Yeah mane (in the Big K.R.I.T. voice)! K.R.I.T. in Philly to talk about the November dropping of his Cadillac-crashed-on-planet-Earth musical project (called "Cadillactica"). Nice interview. Convo about the concepts, reliance on outside production for the first time in his career; along with K.R.I.T.'s desire to score films, to discover the next David Ruffin... the beard... the sneaker chase... a lot of good going on in the near 11-minute clip above.

Great block to add to the build up for the album release.

ARIANA GRANDE CONFIRMS SHE'S DATING BIG SEAN

    
ARIANA GRANDE CONFIRMS SHE'S DATING BIG SEAN

After being seen almost everywhere together Ariana confirms that she and rapper Big Sean are in fact an item. They've been almost inseparable while promoting her new album "My Everything" but until now she has been dodging interviewers when asked if they were a couple. In an interview with The Telegraph this week when asked she answered "Yes". This may come to no ones surprise as they have both taken every opportunity to gush about the other recently. Seems like Big Sean is doing well after his split from ex-fiance Naya Rivera in April.

FRENCH NOW A FREE AGENT!

    
FRENCH NOW A FREE AGENT!

French Montana is officially divorced from his estranged wife Deen Kharbouch. The divorce became final at a New Jersey court house on Sept. 29th. He even took the time to snap the above pic. The rapper was previously dating Khloe Kardashian for 8 months but has since split earlier this month. There has been some harsh words back and forth in the past with Kharbouch calling him out as a bad father. It's not known if her tune has since changed as he's rumored to have given her a 2 million dollar settlement.  I guess that remains to be seen as everyone knows that money isn't everything.  He's stated in the past that he likes to keep his personal life totally separate from his business life and that's why he doesn't post any pics of his son. Which leaves us to wonder, was his 8 month relationship with Khloe a business move?--- Because you couldn't blink without seeing a pic of the two together
