Noah Galvin's Impolitic Interview Could Get THE REAL O'NEALS Axed—But Should It? Comments (0)

When Noah Galvin opened his mouth to Vulture in a Q&A posted this past week, the main problem was he simply never shut it, riffing on his beliefs regarding the proper way to come out (Colton Haynes didn't pass muster), the right way to play a gay character on TV (Eric Stonestreet flunked) and even how not to use one's power in Hollywood (a remark about Bryan Singer and “little boys” was removed from the piece after his lawyers caught wind of it). 

While some of what Galvin said had merit, the overall tone of his remarks reeked of a regrettable smugness and a youthful disregard for how his words might affect other people—including his own co-stars.

To his credit—and no thanks to the decent number of gay fans who unhelpfully cheered him on, Galvin apologized: 

Now comes word that Galvin's show The Real O'Neals (a labor of love for many, including activist Dan Savage)—which is low-rated and was barely renewed—may be canceled after all. If it seems harsh to punish a whole show (and its many fans) thanks to the poorly considered comments of its star, THR reports that this interview shocked the network (it was reportedly set up by Galvin's publicist without their knowledge) but that he had previously been taken to the woodshed for issues of “ego and entitlement.”

Or they just want to reconsider saving a struggling show.

Via THR:

Galvin quickly apologized for his "brazen and hurtful comments" on Twitter, but how all of this bad press affects the low-rated bubble series—which, after an "abusive" waiting period (Galvin's word), was renewed by the network May 12—remains to be seen. As the controversy raged, the specter of a reduced episode order arose at ABC, according to one source. An executive producer who had spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take action," says this source. (Reps for ABC declined comment on the situation.)

It's a terribly hard lesson for a 22-year-old neophyte actor to learn; I'm sure he's mortified, especially that he may be costing the show's creatives and crew their jobs.

One unfortunate note I can add to this story: 

Galvin graciously appeared at TrevorLIVE NY on June 13. A friend of mine assisted him that evening, and while I'm sure everything was dreary for the guy considering the Vulture piece had just hit days before, his publicist wasn't winning him any new friends—she flatly refused to let my friend get a picture with Noah (all the attendees happily pose for pictures with their helpers) and I'm told she also refused to let Galvin pose with the person to whom he handed an award. Really? That's the point of using stars at charity events. Also, she told Galvin he wasn't allowed to drink.

I'm sure that a lot of the issues he's had are of his own making—and I hope he will figure things out, because people do deserve second chances—but when THR is calling out your publicist by name, as it did, and when your publicist is alienating admirers at charity events, it's probably time to get a new one.

6-PACK/politics — Sanders Admits System Isn't RIGGED, Just DUMB + Hillary Zaps Trump On Shameless Veteran-Donations Debacle + Hawking Brands Trump A DEMAGOGUE + Billy Joel Lightly Mocks Trump, Receives Thanks + Mr. French + Trans Victory! Comments (0)

*widget boy cultureSanders walks back idea the Democratic primary is “rigged”: “[N]ot rigged. I think it’s just a dumb process which has certainly disadvantaged our campaign.”

*widget boy cultureHillary Clinton dings Trump on his embarrassing military-veteran donation gaffe—half of his donations were sent the day he was shamed over it.

*widget boy cultureStephen Hawking calls Trump a “demagogue” who appeals to “the lowest common denominator.” Trump is dying to mock his physical limitations, call him a loser.

*widget boy cultureI think Billy Joel's a dick anyway, but taking Trump in such a lighthearted way and dedicating—I get it, sarcastically—a song to him is annoying. Trump isn't entertaining.

*widget boy cultureDavid French seems to be the conservative who will run as an Independent to help defeat Trump. Mitt Romney likes what he sees so far.

Report Finds Hillary Clinton Violated State Dept. Email Rules Comments (0)

A new report will sharply criticize Sec. of State Hillary Clinton's handling of her emails, Politico reports.

While the report concludes that the agency suffers from “longstanding, systemic weaknesses” with records that “go well beyond the tenure of any one Secretary of State,” it specifically dings Clinton for her exclusive use of private email during her four years at the agency. 

“Secretary Clinton should have preserved any Federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records with the related files in the Office of the Secretary,” the report states. “At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.”

Shouldn't have been done that way, but it's such an esoteric lapse of protocol that had bad results only for her reputation. In order to find something like this disqualifying, I can only imagine one would have to have been a dyed-in-the-wool member of the #ImAgainstHer club.

That's all ya got? I'd apologize if I were her and give a contextualizing speech about the unfortunate violation of protocol and what the other side is openly espousing.
