Since Lucas Cruikshank is such a YouTube sensation, it makes sense that he would choose that venue to come out.
The star of the Nickelodeon series "Fred" based on the character he created announced to the world that he was gay during a Q & A video with his friend Jennifer Veal, of Disney Channel's "Jessie."
Today's news you might've missed:
Simon Cowell tried to joke his way out of reports that he will become a father, but he finally came clean.
The "X Factor" judge and reality TV/music executive walked the red carpet Tuesday night for the London premiere of the One Direction documentary "This Is Us"that Cowell co-produced. The Daily Mail reported Cowell joked about how proud he was of the boy band, who he signed to their record label.
It never stops with this guy.
James Franco is always doing something. No, seriously, as you read this he is undoubtedly doing something amazing. From art to soap star, we are beyond questioning if there is anything the actor can't do.
Variety is reporting Franco has now gotten his own television show. "James Franco Presents" is scheduled to premiere on cable network Ovation in November and will feature Franco exploring his passions and art.
Not only will he star in the unscripted series, but Franco will also executive produce the show about his various pursuits (remember when he taught a college course about himself?) Ovation's chief commercial officer, Robert Weiss, told "Variety" the series will not be a reality show, but rather an “anthology docuseries.”
“The show sees the word of art through James’ eyes,” he said. “All the different exploits that James is involved in, this show encompasses.”
Franco hasn't been on prime time regularly since the critically acclaimed "Freeks and Geeks." We can't wait to see what he does next. Because there definitely will be something next.
