Hollywood Moves Towards Inclusion Riders 

Lots of big names are stepping up to encourage more inclusion in Hollywood. At the Oscars, Frances McDormand introduced what's known as an "Inclusion Rider" which is basically a part of an actor's contract which dictates that there must be a certain level of diversity among the cast and crew. So Michael B Jordan announced last week that he's doing an inclusion rider in all of his production company deals. And now Matt Damon and Ben Affleck announced the same thing about their production company projects. 

 

G-Eazy, Fallout Boy Headlining March for Our Lives Concert

G-Eazy and Fallout Boy are set to headline an upcoming concert to benefit the March for Our Lives rallies. It's taking place next Friday in DC - which is the night before the march - and it will benefit Everytown for Gun Safety and also Gabby Giffords' charity too. Bebe Rhexa and Rizzo will also perform, and I have it on good authority that there are more pop superstars set to take the stage as surprise guests… perhaps one of them has collaborated with G-Eazy? Hmm I wonder who it could be… Anyway, this is so cool to see these artists stepping up, and fun fact: every single one of them is playing for free -- they're all paying their own way to get to DC for the event. Plus, fun fact -- a local guy from Hanover named Chuck was the one who created the logo for the event. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.

American Idol Ratings In 

Welp, the ratings are in from American Idol's reboot. They had a total of 10.3m total viewers over the two hours, as compared to 4.4m viewers who were watching the OJ Simpson interview on FOX (which of course is the network that used to carry Idol). 10.3 for American Idol was pretty strong and it was the largest audience tuning in at 8p on a Sunday for ABC since 2012. If you want to compare the 10.3M to the last season Idol was on the air though, more people tuned in to the premiere of the final season a couple years ago.
