"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
While many may have forgotten about him since he has had to remove himself from the work of the industry, to me, Michael J. Fox is a public figure who is an incredible hero of our time.
First off, I would have to say that the “Back To The Future” Trilogy has to be in the Top 5 of Trilogy’s, if not the top trilogy behind “Star Wars” (the first three from the 70’s and 80’s). While “The Matrix” Trilogy had the potential to be 2nd to Star Wars, the disappointing failures of “Reloaded” and “Revolutions” made them lose their place in line. Ya know, parts 2 and 3 were so bad, they made the original “Matrix” less memorable than it was.
The Back To The Future Trilogy was so well written and so well executed, that there will never be another like it in history. And the best part of the films, is Michael J. Fox. Michael has been one of the few people in the industry where he stayed an all around genuine and good guy, so much so, that you can see it in his soul and in his eyes when he was even performing.
So needless to say, i too was very heartbroken when Michael was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease in 1991, and had to bow out from the industry. It is sad and tragic that his career was cut short due to this circumstance, when he clearly had so much more to give. But the heroic part of it all, is that Michael never let that break his stride. He continued to be a great husband to his wife Tracy Pollan and father to his four children, and decided to be a patriarch and a pioneer in the fight against Parkinsons. He has continued to do all he can to raise awareness, money for research, and to try and find a cure for the disease that has tried to take his joy.
Here he is seen with his daughter, Esme, at the Empire State Building in New York City. Michael lit the building Orange and White to raise awareness for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinsons Research today, and it looks like Michael never let Parkinsons stop his stride
We love you Michael, we salute you, and we will always remember the man you’ve been, and the man you remain.

I guess you can never have it all can you?
News broke late Wednesday night of LeBron James making an extreme power move. By partnering his own marketing and management firm, LRMR, with Fenway Sports Management (FSM). This would put LeBron at an elite position at just 26 years old. By partnering with FSM, he would now have an ownership in Liverpool Football Club, as that is one of the clubs in the FSM portfolio. FSM purchased Liverpool F.C. for $488 Million.
The goal is to expand LeBron James’s global presence, and FSM also believes that by partnering with Lebron, doors and opportunities would open for both parties in a very powerful way through expansion of their global brands.
But no sooner than 12 HOURS LATER !!!!
News breaks all over the world of his mother, Gloria Marie James getting arrested for the 2nd time !!! So much so that people don’t even know that poor rich LeBron just got in on the Liverpool gang.
Gloria was arrested at the Fountainbleu Hotel in Miami, where the Heat lost to the Milwaukee Bucks.
After a long night of partying at LIV Nightclub, it is reported that Gloria got angry at a Valet attendant as she was trying to leave. Eyewitnesses corroborated with the claim that Gloria slapped Sorrell Rockefeller, and that she smelled of alcohol and appeared to be very intoxicated.
Now this has to be rough for LeBron, but let’s face it, this is like the umpteenth time in a long string of hits from Gloria Marie James. Let us never forget that they couldn’t wait a few months to show off that Champagne Hummer in the middle of bumf#k Akron, Ohio, shinin all pretty in the snow.
Or the fact that Gloria was supposedly, possibly “dating”, if ya know what i mean, Delonte West, LeBron’s former colleage at the Cavs. Then there’s of course the DUI in 2006, which was her first arrest, and now we have this.
Well hey, at least ya got that Liverpool / FSM deal to balance it all out. I guess Momma was just a little too happy and proud last night, and who can really blame her. LeBron is ballin outta control, both on and off the court.
I mighta got drunk and smacked up a few dudes too if I was his mama. Straight up !! I’d be like, bow down !!
My son is LeBron!!
Let me introduce y’all to my boy Josh Harraway. In case you didn’t catch him last night on TMZ TV, he’s the world’s first Tupac Impersonator, and he’s definitely got the genetic makeup to challenge any mothaphu**a on the streets (sorry, that was the Pac in me).
Josh is up for the role to portray Tupac Shakur in the upcoming Biopic on his life, directed by Antoine Fuqua and produced by Morgan Creek Productions. They’ve been basically searching all corners of the globe to find a guy to play the Legend that defied the laws of life and death. And while no man or lyricist could ever accurately duplicate Pac’s lyrical prowess… There’s no doubt that my boy Josh should be Top Contender Numero Uno when it comes to 2Pac.
And if the ever looming presence of Joslyn James is any indicator (I like to call the two “Joshlyn“), Josh is a shoe in for the role… Cause if chicks are diggin Josh like they used to dig Pac, then he’s def got the persona down packed. It’s no wonder she dropped that Tiger foo to be with 2Pac2!
Check out more of Josh Harraway as 2Pac2 at www.TupacImpersonator.com

Lindsay Lohan was spotted returning to Los Angeles and was welcomed by a swarm of Paparazzi at LAX. Lindsay is in town to audition for her role in the new “Superman” film, and will be heading back to New York to close out her deal as Victoria Gotti.
Perhaps “allegedly” stealing that necklace might’ve turned out better for Lindsay after all. She’s up for the role in Superman, the Gotti film, and she’s also up for the role of Sharon Tate, although I don’t know if I would feel comfortable playing the most famed victim of the infamous cult leader Charles Manson, especially after she was already in the film “Chapter 27” with Jared Leto, the film that portrayed the life of Mark David Chapman, the man who killed John Lennon of the Beatles.
Lindsay supposedly beat out Sienna Miller and Blake Lively for the role and was handpicked by Victoria Gotti herself to be the favored recipient of the role, as Victoria is close friends with the Lohan clan and spends much time with them in Long Island.
While there are also rumors that Jersey Shore’s J. Woww was also up for the role, the one person I’m happy she is looking to beat out is none other than Kim K.
After the production team took the casting so seriously as to wine and dine John Travolta… why would you make such a fatal mistake of picking Kim Kardashian to be the daughter? I don’t think the Gotti family would be portrayed correctly if Kim were to bring the infamous “Kardashian Monotone” to the scene. And besides, if Kim’s acting is to be anywhere close to her dancing and singing….
We’re gonna have a problem here

I caught up with Lane Garrison today outside of the International House Of Pancakes on Wilshire in the Miracle Mile District. The “Prison Break” star had his own run in with the law and prison as a result of a drunk driving accident in which one of his teenage passengers lost his life.
The incident landed Lane in jail for 22 months, which he was released in April of 2009, and is still finishing out his 4 years of parole. We spoke with him about his time in prison, and he said he feels blessed and lucky to have made it out alive. When I asked him if he felt filming Prison Break could have prepared him in any way for what real prison had in store for him, he said no way, and gave comparisons between real life prison, and the prison set he worked on. He also revealed that he will soon be doing work on NBC’s hit show, “The Event”.
Stay tuned to www.SunOfHollywood.com , we’ll soon be posting video of our talk with Lane Garrison.
Amanda Bynes took to her twitter yesterday to try and find her little Angel, a 4 month old teacup Pomeranian she has avidly been posting twitpics of. She tweeted that Angel somehow got out of the house, and she was desperately trying to find her, and hoping that any twitter followers that may have seen her would contact her immediately through twitter. Sadly, Amanda just tweeted the following message…
We are truly saddened to hear about your loss Amanda, and we pray you keep your head up and stay strong.
We know you will never forget your time with Little Angel… All Angels go to Heaven

Today marks the 17 year anniversary of when Rock Legend Kurt Donald Cobain tragically took his own life after years of battling Heroine addiction. This was a tragic ending to a life that held so much promise, as he was only 27 years old at the time of his death. Kurt formed the band Nirvana in 1986 after a tumultuous childhood, with his parents divorcing at a young age, and being bullied in high school by jocks who called him “queer”.
Nirvana recorded their debut album, Bleach, under the independent label Sub-Pop Records, before signing to Geffen Records in 1991, which released Nirvana’s landmark album, Nevermind.
Kurt married Courtney Love in 1992, who gave birth to their daughter Francis Bean Cobain in August of that year. in the same year, the group released the album Incesticide, and the following album, In Utero was released in 1993.
On March 4th, 1994, Kurt was taken to a hospital in an apparent suicide attempt that was declared an accident. Courtney Love and other family members begged for the legendary rocker to seek rehab, but their attempts were futile as his body was discovered on April 8th, 1994 in his Seattle home. A shotgun was found in his arms, and the firearm had fired into his head. He left a note written in red ink to his wife Courtney and daughter Francis. The last words of the letter were “I love you, I love you”.
In the years since his passing, Kurt is remembered as one of the greatest musicians in modern rock, with Nirvana considered one of the top rock albums of all time, and their greatest hit, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is still considered the greatest song of modern rock to this day. Sadly, Kurt will always be remembered and missed, and as it seems, Courtney’s love has continued to seem lost without him. She has suffered many years of continued drug addiction, stints in and out of rehab, and many life mishaps that have continued to make her fodder for tabloids. Let’s hope Courtney continues to stay strong, and keep the memory of Kurt’s life even stronger
Wait… I never knew they separated. Aren’t they already Father and Son?
On film stupid !!
Yes, that’s right. Will and Jaden Smith are set to star as father and son again in a film directed by M. Night Shyamalan. This will be the first time the father and son superstar duo will star in a film together again since 2006 for “The Pursuit of Happyness”, where the two also played father and son in Jaden’s film debut. What’s really interesting is that in Happyness, the two carried their real life surname “Smith” into the film, and in this film, Will keeps his first name, Will, as Jaden’s father in the movie. Funny, cause I was just talking about how much I think Jaden and Willow are amazing kids and I wish Will and Jada had a dozen more.
The movie is a sci-fi set to film 1,000 years after Earth is either abandoned or destroyed, as the working title is “One Thousand A.E.”. Will is set to produce the film along with Jada, under Will’s production company Overbrook Entertainment. With films like “Independence Day” and “I Am Legend” it seems Will is completely enamored by the doomsday scenarios.
Well, if this film is set to star both Will and Jaden, we’re pretty sure it will end up with a happy ending. After all, it has a happy family beginning
Ashley Judd is taking a bold step in regaining control of her painful past and childhood, by sharing her broken memories with us in her book entitled “All That Is Bitter & Sweet”, set to be released today, Tuesday April 5th.
In her book of memoirs, Ashley reveals the shocking truth of her tumultuous upbringing that was surrounded by drug use and included horrible events of molestation and rape. She speaks on how her mother said they put the “fun” in “dysfunctional”, yet that was quite contrary to Ashley’s recollection of her upbringing. The first chapter opens up with Ashley stating the following…
“My family of origin, the one into which I was born, was also brimming with love but was not a healthy family system. There was too much trauma, abandonment, addiction and shame. My mother, while she was transforming herself into the country legend Naomi Judd, created an origin myth for the Judds that did not match my reality. She and my sister have been quoted as saying that our family put the “fun” in dysfunction. I wondered: Who, exactly, was having all the fun? What was I missing?”
“I was taught to believe that our lifestyle was normal and never to question it or complain, even when I was left alone for hours, sometimes days at a time, or when I was passed without warning to yet another relative,”
The problems for the actress didn’t just occur outside the house, as she details a sexual assault she suffered while getting pizza.
“An old man everyone knew beckoned me into a dark, empty corner of the business and offered me a quarter for the pinball machine at the pizza place if I’d sit on his lap. He opened his arms, I climbed up, and I was shocked when he suddenly cinched his arms around me, squeezing me and smothering my mouth with his, jabbing his tongue deep into my mouth.”
While I myself may not see how she was able to muster up the courage to reveal such traumatic experiences of her past, I appreciate the fact that whatever Ashley has had to overcome, has only led to the strength that has helped her to accomplish so much on her own outside of the shadow of “The Judds”. We can only hope that Ashley’s search for peace comes with releasing all that she has had to hold in for so long.
