2017 NFL Scouting Combine Results: Draft Prospects Who Changed Their Stock

The 2017 NFL Scouting Combine results were finalized this week. The annual Indianapolis showcase allowed for the best collegiate football players to work out and interview in front of various teams and media. Which NFL Draft prospects helped or hurt their status over the week-long event? Teez Tabor, Reuben Foster, Jaleel Johnson, John Ross, Christian McCaffrey, and DeShaun Watson all made headlines during the week-long scouting event. Some of them made news for good performances, while others hurt themselves with bad results at the 2017 NFL Combine. Read more below. 2017 NFL Combine Risers Receiver John Ross, Washington Chris Johnson vs John Ross in the 40 yard dash. Two fastest 40 yard dashes in #NFLCombine history. Via reddit: https://t.co/ZoFdXH3WHx pic.twitter.com/xKrGLRwhRK — Samuel Gold (@SamuelRGold) March 6, 2017 Washington receiver John Ross captured everyone’s attention in Indy after he ran a 40-yard dash in 4.22 seconds. It was a brand new NFL Combine record, and many people say he could have run it faster. Ross’ time is especially amazing when you consider the surgeries he has since high school. The Washington receiver did not finish his combine workout due to cramps. Nonetheless, NFL website’s Bucky Brooks says Ross can save that energy to continue building draft moment during his pro day on March 11. Brooks expects Ross to continue climbing up boards due to his speed in Indianapolis and production at Washington. Running back Christian McCaffrey, Stanford Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey has a legitimate argument to be the top back in this draft class, according to Rotoworld‘s Josh Norris. McCaffrey helped his status by going through passing drills, per Norris. Meanwhile, other top backs like FSU’s Dalvin Cook hurt their status with questionable results across the athletic drills. LSU’s Leonard Fournette also slightly hurt his stock by being a little heavy and registering a bad vertical jump. Texas runner D’Onta Foreman also hurt his stock by not performing at the 2017 NFL combine due to a foot injury. All of this could mean good for McCaffrey’s draft value, as he made the most of Indianapolis. Quarterback DeShaun Watson, Clemson “Winners win and losers lose. He’s a winner.” 4 potential landing spots for @DeshaunWatson4: https://t.co/TzUIpcvgkP pic.twitter.com/my4ICKN7R8 — NFL (@NFL) March 6, 2017 Bleacher Report‘s Brad Gagnon listed Clemson quarterback DeShaun Watson as one of the players who raised their stock at the NFL Scouting Combine. He cites that Watson might have won the day on Saturday as he put on a show during positional drills and Watson ranked in the top five at his position for several of the athletic tests. Hence, Watson finds himself among several quarterbacks fighting for the top spot in the NFL Draft class. Furthermore, Gagnon shares that Watson’s combine performance proves that the Clemson quarterback does not back down from high-pressure moments. This is something we already knew as he played well in the last two National Championship games versus Alabama. 2017 NFL Combine Fallers Corner Teez Tabor, Florida WATCH @_31Flavorz speak to the media at the #NFLCombine. ???? – https://t.co/ML9XxvWuTS pic.twitter.com/BC1cTM9Q2M — Gators Football (@GatorsFB) March 6, 2017 Florida corner Teez Tabor could fall out of the first round after his combine results, according to Norris. Tabor registered a bad athletic profile while competing with a corner class that has size, speed, and agility. Norris called it bad timing for Tabor, as many had him among the elite corners in this draft class. Norris said that he would be surprised if Tabor gets drafted in the first round. Tabor’s 4.63 40-yard dash and other results peril in comparison to similar players in the corner draft class. Linebacker Reuben Foster, Alabama Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster hurt his draft stock by getting dismissed from the 2017 NFL Combine. Foster left Indianapolis early due to a verbal altercation while waiting for a medical exam. The Alabama linebacker has since apologized for arguing with a hospital worker, and he called it a misunderstanding. However, NFL teams could already question his character. Brooks writes that Foster was expected to go among the top 20 picks, but these questions could hurt his status. Foster has a ton of great film, but this incident shows a lack of emotional control and professionalism, per Brooks. Either way, Foster can address these issues at his pro day. Defensive lineman Jaleel Johnson, Iowa Get off the tracks when the train’s coming through | @leellxvii #NFLCombine pic.twitter.com/diAKYnHfHh — Hawkeye Football (@HawkeyeFootball) March 5, 2017 Gagnon listed Iowa defensive tackle Jaleel Johnson as one player that decreased his stock during the Scouting Combine. Despite raising his stock during the Senior Bowl, Johnson hurt his draft hype with a poor performance in Indy. Johnson registered the second-worst broad jump and 40-time of any player at his position. His three-cone drill, shuttle, and bench press were also underwhelming. Thus, Gagnon said that Johnson’s athletic tests are concerning because he just started rising up draft boards a few weeks ago after the Senior Bowl. At the end of the day, most team executives and scouts rely on prospects’ actual game time to evaluate them as players. Hence, the 2017 NFL Combine serves as exclamation points or question marks to these collegiate players’ full body of work. Not to mention, the Scouting Combine is not the last chance for players to revise their draft stocks. NFL Draft prospects can still hurt or help their status via college pro days and individual team workouts. Therefore, you will have to keep your eye on these prospects as they continue to build on the 2017 Scouting Combine results before April’s NFL Draft. Check out the full 2017 NFL Scouting Combine results here, via the NFL website. [Featured Image by David J. Phillip/AP Images]

Dafne Keen Punched, Ultimately Bruised, Hugh Jackman During 'Logan' Audition

Logan might have brought an end to Hugh Jackman’s reign as Wolverine, but it did introduce the world to Dafne Keen, who portrayed X-23 in the comic-book adaptation. Logan’s writer and director James Mangold has now admitted that he actually had serious concerns that they wouldn’t be able to find an actress that could portray X-23, as it was such a challenging role for a teenage actor. James Mangold made this admission to Comic Book Resources, revealing that there was only a handful of actors in the world that could do it justice. I felt like I had written with my writing partners a stool with three legs. I knew one leg was Hugh Jackman and one leg was Patrick Stewart, but I had no idea who was going to be this third leg and they needed to be between 10 and 12 years old, bilingual, physically talented and an amazing actress. [Image by 20th Century Fox] James Mangold’s concerns were immediately quashed when he saw a video audition featuring Dafne Keen as X-23, which involved her traipsing across furniture as the mutant. The first introduction was this tape I got of her climbing around on bookshelves at their house and prowling around lounge chairs and doing a somersault or two. After seeing this video Dafne Keen was flown out to New York City with her parents for a face to face audition alongside Hugh Jackman. The scene in question was particularly gruelling, too, as it saw her getting extremely frustrated with Logan, who retaliates himself. It also just so happened to involve Dafne Keen punching Hugh Jackman in the face repeatedly, something that writer and director James Mangold encouraged her to do. Clearly she did quite a good job, too, because not only did she get the role, but her efforts also resulted in Jackman receiving numerous bruises. That was one of the scenes we did in New York and I kept encouraging [Dafne] to get crazier and crazier in that scene. And I think Hugh ended the day with a giant bruise on his shoulder. [Image by 20th Century Fox] Clearly working on a Wolverine film is quite an arduous task. That’s because as recently as yesterday The Inquisitr revealed that Hugh Jackman had repeatedly injured himself during production on the X-Men films. This even saw him stab himself a number of times with Wolverine’s claws, as well as other people on set, too. I can’t tell you how many people I stabbed, how I stabbed myself. They were killing machines… I used to have to practice so I wouldn’t hit people [with the claws]. And one thing I neglected to practice was the follow-through. … I’ve got a number of scars on my thighs, and it’s really not cool. Got pretty close to some sensitive areas, but everything’s fine At one point it also included Hugh Jackman stabbing the stunt-double for Mystique right in the arm, too. Something that left the Australian actor aghast. I stabbed the [stunt] double for Mystique right in the arm. Of course I freaked out a little bit. It’s not every day you stab someone. But it turns out that the woman who was stabbed by Hugh Jackman was nowhere near as furious as he assumed she would be. That’s because rather than immediately suing the actor for all he is worth, or seeking the medical attention that she almost certainly required, the stunt double instead celebrated the incident. She said, ‘I’ve been stabbed by Wolverine!’ That was one of the first days of shooting. That’s when you realize this is not a normal character, when people are really happy to be stabbed by your character. [Featured Image by 20th Century Fox]

iPhone 8 Plus: Will Apple's Next Phablet Have Stylus Support?

The iPhone 8 is one of the most talked-about future smartphones, but there hasn’t been much said about the iPhone 8 Plus. A couple months back, Patently Apple revealed that a new patent showed the Apple Pencil working with the iPhone. “One of today’s patent applications that were published by the US Patent & Trademark Office reveals Apple Pencil working with the iPhone and with an expanded array of applications for the iPhone and iPad.” The article added that the Pencil will eventually work beyond the Notes app and users will be able to use it to select portions of videos, portions of pictures, and do other things on a future iPhone. This would certainly hurt Samsung, who is still dealing with the fallout from the Galaxy Note 7 recalls. Many suspect that the iPhone 8 Plus could have a smaller Apple Pencil attached to the smartphone. Besides the size of the phone and the ability to use a stylus, the iPhone 8 Plus is said to have all the features of the regular iPhone 8. Most sources point out that the iPhone 8 series will include an edge-to-edge OLED display. BGR reports that Apple might have an ultrasound Touch ID built into the display. The iPhone 8 could have an ultrasound Touch ID feature. [Image by Sascha Steinbach/Getty Images] “A new report indicates that Apple has found a way to integrate Touch ID into the OLED screen of the iPhone, revealing the fingerprint sensor will be based on novel technology,” writes columnist Chris Smith, adding that supply chain sources familiar with the new iPhone decided to ignore the usual type of fingerprint sensor and instead use its own Authentech algorithm and Privaris’ glass identification technology to create a different kind of fingerprint ID solution. The downside of all this is that it would push iPhone production to the beginning of September. For the past couple of years, the main production on the iPhone has started in August — just in time to release the phone to stores in September. However, many of the commenters, who appear to be Samsung fans, certainly don’t think the new Touch ID is a big deal. “You mean Apple looked at Qualcomm’s Sense ID [for Samsung phones], said that’s awesome and went off to make their own version?” sarcastically asks Chipsy6. “They’ll buy Qualcomm’s and claim they invented it. Their sheep will believe it, also sue other phones that use it,” answers Aggie. BGR mentions in another article that Apple may release three different versions of the iPhone 8. The next iPhone will come in 3 different versions. [Image by Daryl Deino] “The upcoming iPhone, to be launched this fall, will come in three configurations — two with liquid crystal displays and one with a 5.8-inch organic light-emitting diode display. By adding more large-screen options to the lineup to meet growing demand for BIG, Apple intends to raise the average iPhone price, which has already gone up by about 10% in the past three years to nearly $700.” The article adds that the iPhone 8 will mark the first major change in form factor since Apple released the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in September of 2014. The redesign features extremely small bezels, which will allow Apple to fit in a much larger display than usual. Twitter is brewing with excitement for the iPhone 8. iphone 8 leaks got me excited — Euros (@euzzzz_) March 2, 2017 i can’t wait to get the iphone 8. ive had my iphone 6 for two years. — kelsey (@bieberult) March 7, 2017 As the Inquisitr reported this past weekend, the updated iPad Pro could very well be the next product launch from Apple. There have been new commercials released to promote how an iPad is a personal computer replacement — something a lot of people would disagree with. Still, 2017 appears to be the year of Apple’s big comeback. [Featured Image by Stephen Lam/ Getty Images]

Meet The Sheriff Who Isn't Afraid To Disagree With Trump's 'Fake News' Agenda

Just as there are good cops and bad cops, there are also similar journalists. And according to this sheriff, Donald Trump’s claims aren’t fair or just. Via Twitter, Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood isn’t standing idly by while the image of free press is repetitively tarnished over President Trump’s disagreement with unfavorable reporting. Ever since Donald Trump has been in the Oval Office, he has nearly waged war with mainstream media via Twitter for fact-backed information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation as well as the media’s portrayal of his image. Donald Trump is so scared the truth will come out re: RUSSIA, he’s planting the “fake news seed” daily to prepare his mindless supporters pic.twitter.com/128QO48yij — Anchor ⚓️ (@anchordownnow) February 26, 2017 However, as Sheriff Chitwood points out in his tweets, those in positions of power and authority have to be held accountable to the people. He mentions as follows. “I will now Tweet a few of my 100 percent unsolicited thoughts on ‘fake news’ and increasing distrust of the mainstream American news media. Are there bad journalists out there? Sure, just like there are bad cops, teachers, priests. Plenty of charlatans posing as reporters.” “We can’t waste our time & breath fighting with those who have no real interest in exploring anything true or enlightening. But I talk to lots of reporters (just ask my critics). I know most are honest, diligent pursuers of truth. They care about facts, not spin.” As you know, amid recent banning operations regarding White House press, Trump has specifically named reputable news syndicates which aren’t allowed into the briefings. According to Washington Post, a few of those press organizations include the following names. CNN New York Times Politico Los Angeles Times BuzzFeed Donald Trump loves to refer to these media as “fake news.” Yet, Trump tends to be one of the biggest distributors of “fake news.” As you may have heard, recently, he’s accused former President Obama in wiretapping allegations. Yet, when asked to present proof, he couldn’t provide any. Nevertheless, Sheriff Chitwood continues as follows. “In that way, they are good cops. They chase down witnesses & sources until they can corroborate a story that tells us something real. And while law enforcement is under attack in dangerous ways, at least we hear ‘thank you’ from our community. I don’t think reporters do.” “They work a thankless job with long hours & low wages, but so many keep going [because] they believe in it. Sounds like a public service to me. They’ll run critical stories sometimes & that’s OK. Maybe we deserve it, maybe not. But I won’t undermine all media just [because] I disagree.” However, Donald Trump will call “fake news” on many things which he personally disagrees, regardless of the news piece being based on fact. Check out his tweet just from today. Don’t let the FAKE NEWS tell you that there is big infighting in the Trump Admin. We are getting along great, and getting major things done! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 7, 2017 But, where’s the proof that these “major things” are getting done? Well, Sheriff Chitwood closes with the following statement. “I’ll take the good with the bad, ignore the ugly & stick to what I know. But to good reporters out there: Keep your chin up – we need u. END.” Just like good police officers are needed, along with them, there will be bad ones as well. However, the thing is that they have to be held accountable for their actions. Police brutality is to “good cop work” as fake news is to “true journalism.” You can’t throw it all out at once and say it’s all bad. Both are needed. And as Sheriff Chitwood mentioned, both are public service positions. Yet, Donald Trump has labeled the media the “enemy of the American people.” The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 17, 2017 As noted by Washington Times, that’s the same kind of propaganda which was used by Roman Emperor Nero and Adolf Hitler to manipulate his many followers. In those instances, they gained absolute power. Yet, John Adams said that “absolute power” corrupts without a doubt. Moreover, in regard to this situation, John Adams once noted, “Because power corrupts, society’s demands for moral authority and character increase as the importance of the position increases.” With that in mind, Sheriff Chitwood’s stance on the matter is aligned with justice and accountability. But, what about Trump’s? The Inquisitr would love your thoughts on the issue. Feel free to share them in the comment section below.

Alia Bhatt's 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania' Gets Rave Reviews Ahead Of Release

Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan could have another mega hit movie on her hands. Just days away from its release, her upcoming film Badrinath Ki Dulhania is already getting glowing reviews from Hindi actors and producers. According to IE Entertainment, the film was screened in front of a group of Bollywood insiders and their reactions were very positive. The audience included Mahesh Bhatt, Soni Razdan, David Dhawan and his wife, and Alia’s co-star Varun’s girlfriend. “Both Alia and Varun are so natural and comfortable with each other that it’s a pleasure watch them. It was so charming and fun,” Sonia Razdan said.

Badri (Dhawan) has dropped out of school but Vaidehi (Bhatt) is a studious young woman with lots of ambition. The film was directed by Shashank Khaitan and was produced by Karan Johar, according to IMDb. As Gulf News notes, the movie is part of a franchise that began with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. In an interview with Gulf News, Dhawan was hesitant to reveal too much about the storyline. “I don’t want to say much about the story because I want people to be surprised when they watch the film,” said Dhawan. “[Humpty and Badri] are poles apart. Badri is a boy from Jhansi in the state of Uttar Pradesh and she’s playing a girl from Kota, Rajasthan. It’s a story of two people who have very different ideologies, who make a world together… actually, they don’t really make one together. I’m playing a man who is chauvinistic to a certain degree, which I wasn’t in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.” Alia Bhatt also found that her character in Badrinath ki Dulhania and the previous film are completely different. “Kavya was naive who’s only ambition was to get married in a Kareena Kapoor-Manish Malhotra designed lehenga She was very simple, very childlike,” Bhatt said. “Vaidehi is way more mature. She has strong ambitions, she’s way more level-headed and a little bitter because of her past experiences,” Un/seen stills from #BadrinathKiDulhania ❤️

According to the Hindustan Times, the song uses some of the original vocals from the song but remixes it with a sound that feels very 2017. It even has a rap verse that’s performed by Badshah. Badrinath ki Dulhania is expected to be released on March 10. [Featured Image by Clemens Bilan/Getty Images]

Alec Baldwin To Stop Portraying Trump Due To 'Maliciousness' Of White House

Alec Baldwin has been portraying Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live for months now, and the spot-on impersonation has garnered the sketch show its best ratings in six years, not to mention tons of public praise and even the attention of Donald Trump and the White House. Unfortunately for fans, it could be that very attention that puts the brakes on Baldwin’s Trump impression. Alec Baldwin offers Donald Trump some heartfelt Twitter advice https://t.co/fm7NOgJcx8 pic.twitter.com/KuBSCk7iwH — VANITY FAIR (@VanityFair) March 8, 2017 As Huffington Post reports, Alec Baldwin says he’s about to bring his SNL Trump character to an end. The reason? According to Baldwin, the Trump White House is malicious, and he doesn’t think that the American people can take much more of the dramatic nonsense that comes with poking the new POTUS with an artistic stick. In fact, Alec Baldwin is shocked that Trump hasn’t relaxed into his new reality as a much-maligned president. “His policies aside, which you can hate, I thought he would have just relaxed. The maliciousness of this White House has people worried, which is why I’m not going to do it much longer, the impersonation. I don’t know how much more people can take it.” Alec first debuted his incomparable Trump character on Saturday Night Live in October – before Donald secured his unbelievable White House win. According to Baldwin, he didn’t do prep work before his first rehearsal. He simply channeled the “bitter and angry” nature of the new POTUS into his portrayal. Not surprisingly, Donald Trump is not a fan of Alec Baldwin or his Trump caricature, and (like many subjects), Donald hasn’t been shy about turning to social media to blast Baldwin and SNL for picking on him for laughs. “Trump just overwhelmingly lacks any kind of sportsmanship. He remains bitter and angry. And you just want to look at him and go, ‘You won!’” Alec Baldwin: I likely won’t play Trump much longer https://t.co/zM9pYQdowM pic.twitter.com/e0TMk8yVTu — The Hill (@thehill) March 8, 2017 Indeed, Trump (well before accusing Obama of wiretapping) has frequently taken to Twitter to take jabs at Alec Baldwin and the show that employs him since he became a target of the SNL hilarity. .@NBCNews is bad but Saturday Night Live is the worst of NBC. Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really bad television! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 15, 2017 For his part, Alec Baldwin has tried to “take the high road” when it comes to his Trump feud. In the last day, he’s given the new POTUS some advice to live by – at just about the time that he was admitting that his run of impersonating Donald Trump on TV could be coming to a sad end. @ABFalecbaldwin @AlecBaldwin Don’t let #Trump win. You’re one of the few who can stand up to him. Don’t quit the #impersonation. — Scott (@grayhairmgmt) March 7, 2017 @Rosie @HuffPostEnt Trump aint funny, but Alec Baldwin is funny impersonating him. I’ll miss the skits but understand the need to quit. — Rebecca Royer (@rebecca_royer) March 8, 2017 @VanityFair AB as DJT was great. But now it’s too serious to be funny. — Eileen Corbeil (@eileencorbeil) March 8, 2017 As USA Today reports, Alec Baldwin is worried that the former reality TV star’s Twitter obsession could be compromising his ability to govern. Instead of turning to Twitter to blast his critics, Baldwin suggests that Trump should follow the advice of Disney and “let it go.” “The President of the United States should have his office do the tweeting. I had a very strange relationship with Twitter, because in the beginning, I thought it was an opportunity for me to communicate directly with my audience. And I tried to do that. Therefore when people picked a fight with me, whether they were mean to me or they spit on me in the digital world, I got angry. And I would get into these rants with people. And I stopped and said to myself, ‘What the hell am I doing?’ And you let it go.” Rather than spending his days (and nights and wee morning hours) fighting on Twitter, Baldwin suggests that Trump do what was elected to do and take care of the American people. It remains to be seen if the POTUS will take advice from a man who’s made headlines by mocking him mercilessly. Why @AlecBaldwin might not play Trump on @nbcsnl much longer: https://t.co/2CxjrOHNy2 pic.twitter.com/7Em6Q5tjTj — ExtraTV (@extratv) March 7, 2017 It is also unclear when Baldwin may put the fork in his incredibly popular SNL Trump. Alec Baldwin also addressed rumors that he may be attending the upcoming White House Correspondents Dinner in lieu of President Trump, who has bowed out of the potential roasting. (Trump’s the first POTUS to eschew the event since Ronald Reagan. Who was recovering from a gunshot due to an assassination attempt.) I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 25, 2017 While Baldwin previously indicated that he’d be willing to “play Trump” at the event, he clarified this week that he didn’t think that his input would be appreciated by organizers of the big night. “If Trump himself doesn’t come and face the music, as it were, I don’t know what kind of program they’re going to have. If they wanted me to do it, I would probably do it. But I’m not quite sure they’ll do. I think they may have a whole other idea.” Alec Baldwin says TRUMP AINT FUNNY – I AGREE https://t.co/nZl1fmYPOP via @HuffPostEnt — ROSIE (@Rosie) March 8, 2017 What does that mean, exactly? That Alec Baldwin is only going to bash Trump at the star-studded event if organizers ask him to. Something that could drive an even deeper wedge between Trump and the media. That is, if such a thing is possible. What do you think? Is it time for Alec Baldwin to retire his Trump, should he play POTUS at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, or is it time to stop poking Donald Trump with a liberal stick for the good of his sanity and America?

Millie Bobby Brown Wants To Play Princess Leia In A 'Star Wars' Spinoff

Millie Bobby Brown’s acting career has really only just begun. Considering she’s just 13-years-old, it’s fair to say that her life has only really just begun, too. But despite her short time on this Earth, the English actress has already amassed an impressive CV. Not only has she appeared on Once Upon A Time In Wonderland, Intruders, NCIS, Modern Family, and Grey’s Anatomy, but she shot to fame last year with the role of Eleven in Stranger Things. A part that she will reprise in the show’s upcoming second season. Things are going to get very busy for Millie Bobby Brown over the next few months, because as well as filming the second season of Stranger Things she is also currently in pre-production on Godzilla: King Of Monsters, in which she’ll take a leading role. [Image by CBS] But Millie Bobby Brown has already got her eyes on an even bigger role. That’s because during her attendance at the Emerald City Comic-Con over the weekend, Millie Bobby Brown announced her intention to star as Princess Leia in a Star Wars spin-off film. Bleeding Cool were in attendance at the event, where they heard Millie Bobby Brown announce her plans after being quizzed about roles she desired. Princess Leia. I love Carrie Fisher and it would be amazing to carry on her legacy. This isn’t the first time that Millie Bobby Brown has announced this intention, though. In fact, it’s quite clear that the actress has had the role of Princess Leia ear-marked for a while. As The Inquistir previously reported, Millie Bobby Brown made the same declaration during her attendance at the Rhode Island Comic-Con, insisting that she wouldn’t be daunted to take on such an iconic role. Princess Leia. If they made – I think they are making another Star Wars – I would love a role like that. Because I want to do something far from Eleven or Madison. Following the death of Carrie Fisher, who portrayed Princess Leia in the Star Wars films A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi, and The Force Awakens, there is likely to be an increased interest in a Princess Leia film. Fisher died on December 27, 2016, while audiences will get to bid farewell to her and Princess Leia when Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released on December 15, 2017. Discussions regarding the future of the Star Wars franchise, which might or might not include a Princess Leia prequel film, actually took place rather recently, too. [Image by Lucasfilm] That’s because, before the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy revealed to Entertainment Weekly that they would be ironing out the Star Wars universe and its future films in January, 2017. That’s a conversation going on right now, too. I have to honestly tell you, could we [do nothing but standalones]? Sure. But I don’t know. We are looking at all of that. There are [possible movies] that we have been talking a lot about. But we are planning to sit down in January, since we will have hadThe Force Awakens released, now Rogue One, and we’ve finished shooting Episode VIII. We have enough information where we can step back a little bit and say, ‘What are we doing? What do we feel is exciting? And what are some of the things we want to explore?’ Who is making this decision? Kathleen Kennedy also used the above interview to reveal that it will be quite a crack team, which will include The Force Awakens’ J.J. Abrams, The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson, and Episode IX’s Colin Trevorrow. The story team and the trust, and the visual effects team that we have been working with. We always pull in the directors and the writers that have been a part of these other three movies. We create pretty much a very collegiate group of people to share ideas. [Featured Image by Netflix]

Kim Kardashian Finally Shares A Photo Holding Blac Chyna And Rob's Baby Dream

Kim Kardashian was finally photographed holding her niece. The reality star was pictured holding Blac Chyna and her brother Rob Kardashian’s 4-month-old baby Dream. Dream Renee Kardashian was born to parents Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian in November of 2015. Shortly after the baby’s birth, family members like Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner all uploaded photos of themselves with baby Dream to their social media accounts.

Patrick McKenna: Is The O.J. Simpson Investigator Now Casey Anthony's Boyfriend?

Patrick McKenna helped Casey Anthony beat her infamous murder charge, and now the noted investigator could be her live-in boyfriend. A new interview released this week revealed that Casey has been living with the private investigator in a home in West Palm Beach, Florida. The interview with the Associated Press was the first time in years that Anthony has spoken on the record, and the story also revealed her living situation. “Anthony lives in the South Florida home of Patrick McKenna, a private detective who was the lead investigator on her defense team. She also works for him, doing online social media searches and other investigative work. McKenna was also the lead investigator for OJ Simpson, when he was accused of killing his wife and acquitted; Anthony said she’s become fascinated with the case, and there are ‘a lot of parallels’ to her own circumstances.” The story did not specify whether Patrick McKenna was Casey Anthony’s boyfriend, leading to speculation over whether the two might be dating. McKenna is among the best-known private investigators in the country, perhaps most famous for his work on the O.J. Simpson case. As ABC News noted in a profile from close to six years ago, it was McKenna who uncovered the racist tapes of LAPD officer Mark Fuhrman, helping cast doubt on the prosecution’s case and ultimately leading to Simpson’s acquittal. McKenna later went to work on Casey Anthony’s case, interviewing her parents and uncovering some dark family secrets. At trial, Casey’s lawyer accused her father, George Anthony, of molesting Casey and having an affair during the search for the missing Caylee. “This case was the sweetest victory of all the cases I have ever worked because there was so much hatred toward Casey and her lawyers. We had no money, no resources and we were working against a firestorm of bad press,” McKenna said. McKenna even said that Casey Anthony’s acquittal was a bigger upset than O.J.’s, as she faced longer odds. “I was more surprised by Casey’s acquittal than OJ’s because I had more confidence in OJ’s jury,” he told ABC News. “There was just more science to back up his case than Casey’s.” There had actually been reports for several years that Casey Anthony and Patrick McKenna were living together. In 2015, Casey was photographed attending the Women for Women 5K/10K event, Radar Online reported. After the picture went viral on social media, a South Florida gossip blog called Gossip Extra found that Casey and Patrick were living together in a 2,000-square-foot home that is within walking distance of the ocean. The same blog found that the living arrangement may go back even further, finding that Casey may have started living at Patrick McKenna’s home in 2012.

In the private investigation community, McKenna is somewhat of a folk hero. He was credited with finding evidence that got fallen football icon OJ Simpson cleared in 1997 of the double murder of his ex-wife and a friend.” Patrick McKenna has also been referred to as Casey Anthony’s boyfriend in the past. In a tweet last year, professional poker player Jaclynn Moskow claimed that McKenna was investigating her — and that he was dating Anthony.

Casey Anthony Talks Caylee, Says 'I Sleep Pretty Good At Night'

Casey Anthony has been labeled “the most hated mom in America” in the aftermath of the 2008 disappearance and death of her daughter, 2-year-old Caylee. Caylee vanished, seemingly without a trace, in June of that year. Unthinkably, her disappearance was not reported to law enforcement for a month, and even then, not by her mother but her grandmother instead. From the beginning, Casey Anthony couldn’t get her story straight when it came to what happened to Caylee. She initially told investigators that her toddler had been kidnapped by “Zanny the Nanny,” but would go on to change her tune. When her mother, Cindy Anthony, reported her granddaughter’s disappearance to police (the same day she learned of it, a month after Casey said she’d last seen the 2-year-old), she claimed that the trunk of Casey Anthony’s car “smelled like a dead body.” the most hated woman in America Casey Anthony was spotted at an anti-Trump “rally” reecently said she doesnt like him. pic.twitter.com/WIRfomI7T8 — We The People News (@wethepplsdnews) February 21, 2017 Police would go on to arrest Casey in connection with Caylee’s disappearance the day after the child was reported missing. Ultimately, Casey Anthony was charged with Caylee’s murder – even before the little girl’s body was tragically found in a wooded area near the Anthony family home in December of 2008. When Caylee’s remains were discovered, they were badly decomposed and skeletal, making the determination of a cause of death impossible. Despite lacking a definitive cause of death, prosecutors did have some clues to go on. A search history on the Anthony family computer revealed that someone in the household had been conducting searches related to chloroform. Traces of the banned anesthetic were also reportedly found in the trunk of Casey Anthony’s car. A piece of duct tape attached to Caylee Anthony’s skeleton, believed to have been taped over the toddler’s mouth, featured a hand-drawn heart. As USA Today reports, the prosecution in the Casey Anthony murder trial argued that Caylee had been murdered by her mother when Casey administered chloroform to the tot, then taped her mouth shut, ultimately causing the toddler to suffocate. The motive, according to the prosecution, was a mom who wanted to party rather than raise a child. In fact, in the aftermath of Caylee’s disappearance, Casey was seen out partying at local Florida bars. As Daily Mail reports, Casey Anthony even took part in a “hot body” contest after she claimed her daughter vanished.

They argued that little Caylee had accidentally drowned in the Anthony family pool and that Casey and her father George covered up the little girl’s death in a panic. In 2011, Casey Anthony would go on to be acquitted of murdering Caylee. She was convicted of four counts of lying to police, two of which were later dismissed on appeal. Anthony had spent nearly three years incarcerated awaiting trial, and upon her acquittal, she was given credit for time served and released. Trial judge offers new theory on death of Casey Anthony’s daughter, Caylee Anthony https://t.co/M1ilAXnoqF pic.twitter.com/senJBRYWgq — CBS News (@CBSNews) March 2, 2017 While she suddenly found herself a free woman, legally “not guilty” in connection to her daughter’s death, Casey Anthony also found herself the target of intense public scrutiny. Most believed that she had “gotten away with murder,” and Anthony has lived as a virtual hermit in the nearly six years since her acquittal. As USA Today reports, Anthony filed for bankruptcy after her trial, she also started up her own photography business. Reportedly, customers were few and far between. Since her trial, Casey has not spoken publicly about the death of her daughter Caylee. Until now. And what she said in an exclusive Associated Press interview has many scratching their heads. Even her AP interviewer said that the interview, initiated by Anthony, was “revealing, bizarre and often contradictory, and … ultimately raised more questions than answers about the case.” It was also conducted in a room full of photos of Caylee, as well as the toddler’s artistic endeavors. Casey is said to have “teared up” when sharing a finger painting created by her deceased daughter.

Thx for clearing up anyone’s doubt — Bob Marsdale (@BobMarsdale) March 7, 2017 I don’t care what anyone tells me I still think Casey Anthony killed her child and got away with it. — Selena ◡̈ (@SimplySelena101) March 7, 2017 I thought Casey Anthony was trending because she finally admitted she killed her daughter. Or maybe was found dead. Unfortunately neither. — Hissyfit4711 (@Hissyfit4711) March 7, 2017 Casey Anthony murdered her child & is “sleeping good at night.” I didn’t kill anyone and still can’t sleep good. What’s your secret girl? — Amber Maggart (@ambermaggart) March 7, 2017 During her unprecedented sit-down, Casey Anthony once again contradicted herself with regard to the fate of little Caylee. Despite swearing under oath at her trial that her 2-year-old had drowned in her family pool, Casey is now saying that she doesn’t know what happened to Caylee. “Everyone has their theories; I don’t know. As I stand here today I can’t tell you one way or another. The last time I saw my daughter I believed she was alive and was going to be OK, and that’s what was told to me.” Anthony went on to say that the last time she saw Caylee, the mother and daughter were in bed and her mom was telling them goodbye before she went to work. She claims that when she woke up again later, Caylee was gone. The judge who presided over the Casey Anthony trial believes she killed her daughter Caylee accidentally https://t.co/P2SiI4qEtn pic.twitter.com/UYYa1F0rId — New York Daily News (@NYDailyNews) March 1, 2017 Casey Anthony also addressed how the public perceives her, a public so vengeful that the hated tot mom can’t even go out for a night of bowling without being heckled and verbally assaulted out of the alley. According to Casey, she doesn’t care what you and I think of her. “I don’t give a sh** about what anyone thinks about me, I never will. I’m OK with myself; I sleep pretty good at night.” According to Casey, despite not knowing her daughter’s fate and not knowing how her short life ended so tragically, she is able to “sleep pretty good.” Casey Anthony on life after acquittal: ‘I sleep pretty good at night’ https://t.co/KlnW5wx4gH pic.twitter.com/yq12nBAEWM — Fox News (@FoxNews) March 7, 2017 As People reports, the reason behind Casey Anthony’s recent decision to open up about the death of Caylee is unclear. However, it comes just days after the judge in her murder trial confessed that he believes that Casey did kill her daughter — by accident. Despite her inconsistencies, Casey Anthony swore during her interview that she didn’t do “what she was accused of.” “I didn’t do what I was accused of, but I fought for three years. Not just for me, but for my daughter.” Currently, Casey Anthony is living in the home of a male private investigator who worked on her criminal case (she claims she is helping him with his work); as for Caylee, if she had survived, she would now be 12-years-old and according to her mom, a “bada**.” [Featured Image by Joshua Replogle/AP Images]
