Super Bowl Commercials Put Celebrities on Tricky Stage

Super Bowl Commercials Put Celebrities on Tricky Stage
Tracee Ellis Ross had to leave the set of “Black-ish” for a project so secret she wasn’t sure she could even tell her co-star on the show, Anthony Anderson. On Sunday, it won’t be a secret anymore.

Ross is one of several handfuls of celebrities scheduled to appear in the big-budget commercials that will run during Fox’s broadcast of Super Bowl Liv. The job offers a distinct thrill, but brings with it some very unique wrinkles.

Super Bowl ads “stand out through time, and they become little pieces of art,” says Ross in an interview. She will appear with Bryan Cranston in a remake of the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film “The Shining” that has been turned into a pitch on behalf of PepsiCo’s Mountain Dew. “A Super Bowl commercial is like the Olympics of commercials,” she adds.

Popular actors, musicians and newsmakers have long made their way into Super Bowl ads,

Bill Nye the Science Guy Headed to Trial Against Disney

Bill Nye the Science Guy Headed to Trial Against Disney
Bill Nye is now allowed to take limited claims against The Walt Disney Company to trial. On Wednesday, a Los Angeles Superior Court entered an order that sets up the trial, now scheduled for May 2020.

In Nye's fourth amended complaint, he estimates $28 million in damages from the way that Disney allegedly shortchanged him on profits from his 1990s television show Bill Nye the Science Guy. He's also seeking punitive damages arising from how Disney has "a long and consistent pattern of under-reporting revenue and improperly applying deductions."

Disney moved to get the case down to ...

Neil deGrasse Tyson Backlash Is Proof He Should Not Be the Only Famous Scientist on TV

Neil deGrasse Tyson Backlash Is Proof He Should Not Be the Only Famous Scientist on TV
Neil Degrasse Tyson’s cultural value needs company. As a popularizer of science, Tyson introduced audiences to the wonders of the universe with an approachable tone that expanded its appeal beyond physics classrooms and laboratories. Like Carl Sagan before him, Tyson excels at translating the dense field of astrophysics into riveting cosmic terms that anyone can appreciate.

Lately, however, Tyson’s folk-hero status has hobbled, as various developments — from sexual harassment charges to insensitive tweets — have made him more of a burden for the field. None of this has changed Tyson’s underlying value in bringing scientific concepts to the masses, but the backlash is a clear reminder that he shouldn’t be the only famous scientist on TV.

Over the weekend, Tyson issued a bizarre tweet in response to America’s mass shooting debate, listing a range of other death statistics — from suicide to car accidents — and concluding that

Bill Nye Believes in Aliens, Declares They 'Gotta Be Out There' at Men in Black Premiere
Could extraterrestrial life be out there? Bill Nye seems to think so!

Disney Aims to Send Bill Nye the Science Guy Lawsuit to Black Hole

Time may be relative, but from Disney's vantage point, Bill Nye the Science Guy waited too long to file a $37 million lawsuit over profits from his 1990s television show.

Nye is claiming fraud. He survived the initial foray into the galaxy of Hollywood accounting, and blessed by the ability to conduct further fact-finding, he and Disney are now at the summary judgment phase, a point where the Los Angeles Superior Court judge will determine whether there's any observable realm of fact to test at trial.

Disney insists Nye's legal hypothesis fails.

In a motion for summary adjudication,...

If climate change sends us back to the 70s, would that be so very bad? | Letters

Stressed youngsters might well enjoy a less commercial society, writes Clare Hobba. And Alice Munnelly questions the Met Gala’s green credentials

Your article describes Bill Nye, the children’s science presenter, getting justly angry about climate change. But today’s children are not the first generation to have a sharp awakening to our violation of the environment – pollution was a major concern for youngsters of the 1970s.

As a child, my cultural heroes were environmentalists. The Wombles recycled rubbish, singing: “Pick up the pieces and make them into something new / Is what we do.” Bagpuss was an expert in thrift: “We will fix it like new, new, new,” sang the mice. As a teenager, instead of buying new, I embraced the 1970s revival of handicrafts and made my own leather bags, floaty skirts and bead jewellery. Cars were a rarity and I travelled by bus, bike or on foot

John Oliver Enlists Bill Nye to Highlight Climate Change Crisis

A New Generation of Activists Is Taking the Lead on Climate Change

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez was sitting in his living room in Boulder, Colorado, watching the environmental documentary The 11th Hour, when it hit him for the first time. “I kind of began to grasp the idea that human beings are responsible for creating a crisis that threatens not just nature but humanity — everything about our civilization.” He was six years old. Martinez became one of 21 child plaintiffs suing the U.S. government for failing to protect them from climate change. He was 15 when they brought the suit. He turns 19 in May. It still
