    Cannes Lions: David Oyelowo on Learning from Oprah, Daniel Day Lewis and Tom Cruise

    The British actor and 'Selma' star turned his session at the Cannes Lions festival into a master class on how to succeed in entertainment. Fear of public speaking is a major phobia. But actor David Oyelowo, the British-born Nigerian prince, risked that when asking a random audience member to come play Juliet to his Romeo onstage at Cannes Lions. Would she choke in front of the packed Theater Lumière and embarrass herself and Oyelowo, known for his 2014 tour de force as Martin Luther King in “Selma” as well as his recent comic turn in “Gringo”? The anonymous young woman, who did not appear to be a ringer, was handed a script by Oyelowo and they immediately ran lines. She wasn't bad, she was actually

    'Pose' writer/director Janet Mock leans into her deepest fears

    A year ago, Janet Mock — an established journalist (People, Marie Claire, the Advocate) author (“Redefining Realness”), TV host and advocate — added yet another career to her résumé: television writer, producer and director for “Pose,” Ryan Murphy's '80s extravaganza of NYC house/ball culture on FX. She also became the first trans woman of color hired as a writer for a TV series in history — no small feat. “My life went into turnaround,” Mock, 35, tells Alexa. “I moved from New York to LA and hit the writers room for a show with the largest amount of transgender actors ever in series-regular roles for a scripted series.

    California Sen. Kamala Harris set to stump for Ben Jealous in Prince George's County

    U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, a rising star in national Democratic politics, is scheduled to join Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous for a rally in Prince George's County Wednesday evening. The California lawmaker, who was elected in 2016, is one of several stalwarts of the Democratic Party's progressive wing who have appeared in Maryland to support Jealous' bid to win the June 26 primary election against a crowded field of Democrats seeking to challenge Republican Gov. Larry Hogan. Harris will join the former NAACP president in Langley Park for what is billed as an “early vote rally” that will also be a protest of President Donald J. Trump's immigration policies.
