Like any good origin story, Fox’s upcoming series Gotham is tasked with showing viewers how many iconic DC Comics characters that they know and love came to be. In addition to good guys like Detective James Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie) and a young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), the mysterious metropolis is filled with plenty of villains-in-the-making. Read more…
Now that’s a hot ticket! This beats going to the Oscars, or the Emmys, the Grammys and all the rest of that awards show bizznezz. Imagine being part of an exclusive coterie invited to have a private breakfast session with President Barack Obama at the Beverly Hilton to talk about the Young America Effort he spearheads. Just over two dozen hot Hollywood stars got the opportunity to do just that yesterday, and they were suitably floored. Jessica Alba tweeted a picture of the whole group, writing, “Got up bright & early to hear BarackObama speak w an awesome group …” Ian Somehalder was pretty overcome as well, tweeting three messages. One read, “Totally surreal morning. Met up with some friends, had coffee with President Obama now tweeting. The 21st century… Let’s do this.” Another said, “Just spent my morning w/this man talkn green energy, a better America & being a young American-wow,” and third had a black-and-white photograph of two, saying, “Me and President Obama if it was 1962…” Gotta love Ian. He always gets so charged up and really puts his money where his mouth is!
The rest of the group include celebrities like Jeremy Renner, Tatyana Ali, Bryan Greenberg, Sophia Bush, Benjamin McKenzie and Jared Leto. Dianna Agron also tweeted, “Maybe the only man I truly get nervous around. Worth the early wakeup call.” Brandon Routh messaged, “Honored to speak w/ POTUS BarackObama again today! Looking forward to helping
#GetTheVoteOut,” while Adam Rodriguez said, “Not my avg mornin, NOT ur avg Pres! Keep CHANGE movin n the right direction 4 more yrs!” That certainly wasn’t the end of it. We saw a photo of Zach Braff too, and one of Zachary Quinto‘s that read, “all in all? not a bad way to start my morning. get fired up. now. it. is. ON!” You can see all the photographs of the very excited lot in the gallery below. The pictures are hilarious because Obama looks supremely chilled while the rest look like they can hardly contain themselves!
