Van Williams, THE GREEN HORNET & SURFSIDE 6 Heartthrob, Dies @ 82 Comments (0)

16040856688_f8ccc6c83e_bOne of the screen's most unforgettable stunners, Van Williams: February 27, 1934-November 28, 2016

Van Williams, best-known to TV audiences as The Green Hornet in the 1966-1967 series of the same name as well as on Vanwilliams6 Batman during the same time period, died November 28 of kidney failure at his Arizona home. He was 82.

Hottest-ever male TV actors: A list!

Williams, easily one of the most stunning men ever to grace the TV screen, got his start when Elizabeth Taylor and her husband, producer Mike Todd, spotted him running a skin-diving outfit in Hawaii in the '50s.

Thanks to his looks, Williams quickly knocked down episodic television roles, notching a big break as one of the leads of Surfside 6 (1960-1962), along with similarly attractive stars like Diane McBain (the sole surviving cast member of that series), Lee Patterson, Margarita Sierra and Troy Donahue. He continued the role a couple of times on 77 Sunset Strip in 1961 and 1963.

Following his Green Hornet splash, Williams had only a couple more memorable parts, including as the star of the short-lived series Westwind (1975) and in episodes of How the West Was Won in 1978.

A close friend of his Green Hornet co-star (pictured) Bruce Lee's, Williams chose Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (1993) as his last appearance on film; he played the director of The Green Hornet. Williams was the last surviving member of the original Green Hornet cast.

My experience meeting Williams, here!

In his later years, the pinup-turned-businessman attended autograph shows in spite of fragile health and was quite friendly to his fans.

BILLBOARD Woman Of The Year Madonna On Being Okay With Trump The Person, Not Trump The President, Plus: WOMEN HATE WOMEN Comments (0)

Madonna Billboard(Image  by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott via Billboard)

In Billboard's new cover story, Madonna — the trade publication's choices for Woman of the Year 2016 — speaks articulately about the Trump phenomenon, as well as her own past with the Not-My-President-elect. Fabulously, she is interviews by the politically passionate Elizabeth Banks, who deliciously references their appearance together in the abysmal Swept Away, Madonna's so-far-last starring movie role.

Banks writes:

[Madonna] told me that my audition was funny and that I’d be good in the movie, and I just tried to keep ­breathing. I assume it was in that moment that Guy concluded I’d be the perfect, nubile idiot to cast in Swept Away. I won the part. The next few weeks were surreal for all of us. I had seen Madonna in concert as a teenager and had splurged on tickets for her Staples Center show scheduled for Sept. 11, 2001. Needless to say, that concert was postponed as the world came undone. But a couple of weeks after we met, I watched Madonna finish her Drowned World Tour. Before the music began that night, she started with a prayer for peace: “If you want to change the world, change yourself,” she told the crowd. Through tears, I sang along for the entire show.

On the topic of relevance and ageism, Madonna is painfully on-point:

I don’t ever think about my age until someone says something about it. I feel that I have wisdom, experience, knowledge and a point of view that is important. Can a teenager relate to that? Probably not. But that’s OK. I understand that. “Relevance” is a catchphrase that people throw out because we live in a world full of discrimination. Age is only brought up with regard to women. It’s connected to sexism, chauvinism and misogyny. When Leonardo is 60 years old, no one is going to talk about his relevance. Am I relevant as a female in this society that hates women? Well, to people who are educated and are not chauvinists or ­misogynists, yes.

Saying she felt “like someone died” when Hillary lost, Madonna speaks of interacting with Trump in the past. She is surprisingly even-handed, if clearly a critic:

I did a photo shoot years ago at [Trump’s] Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach [Fla.] for a Versace campaign. He’s a very friendly guy, ­charismatic in that ­boastful, macho, alpha-male way. I found his political incorrectness amusing. Of course, I didn’t know he was going to be running for ­president 20 years later. People like that exist in the world, I’m OK with it. They just can’t be heads of state. I just can’t put him and Barack Obama in the same ­sentence, same room, same job description.

On why so damn many women voted for the cheerfully misogynistic Trump, Madonna goes there fearlessly and ain't lie:

Women hate women. That’s what I think it is. Women’s nature is not to support other women. It’s really sad. Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children.

More of Madonna's pearls of wisdom from this fascinating piece here. Madonna will receive Billboard's Woman of the Year award at Billboard's Women in Music event December 9 in New York City. It airs on Lifetime December 12.

Alice Drummond, perhaps most famous as the first person onscreen in Ghostbusters (1984) — she played a timid librarian — has died at 88.

Sadly, her death was caused by a serious fall, which occurred in her Bronx home.

Drummond worked steadily until about five years ago, making a slew of episodic-TV appearances. Other films in which the highly recognizable thesp made her mark include Awakenings (1990), the gay comedy Jeffrey (1995), the even gayer comedy To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar (1995), the gayest of all comedy In & Out (1997) and Doubt (2008).

Drummond is survived by no immediate family.
