WATCH: Stars including Laura Dern and Kathy Bates freak out upon meeting “Cheer” star Jerry Harris at Oscars

Ellen DeGeneres sent Jerry Harris, the breakout star of Netflix’s Cheer, to the 2020 Oscars to be her red carpet correspondent.

He chatted with various stars including Brad Pitt and Billie Eilish. While he gave some encouraging “Mat Talk” to Idina Menzel, many actors like Laura Dern, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Kathy Bates lost it over meeting the breakout cheerleader.

Ellen and her friends at Shutterfly had a gift for the college student.


Morning Man Classic: Burt Reynolds!

Burt Reynolds, king of the box office in the 70s, was born 84 years ago today.

During his hey-day in the 70s and early 80s when he starred in a string of popular movies including Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, The End, The Cannonball Run, Semi-Tough, The Longest Yard and scored in acclaimed dramas like Deliverance and Starting Over, there was no bigger star in the world – and none sexier!

His lone Academy Award nomination came for Boogie Nights, a performance that won him the Golden Globe. He had also won an Emmy Award during his four-year run in the CBS series Evening Shade. He had gotten his start on TV’s Gunsmoke and starred in the TV dramas Dan August and Hawk.

Burt died in 2018 but he most certainly has not been forgotten!

On Burt’s birthday, let us remember the ALL TIME greatest wardrobe in any movie, ever. Tell me I’m wrong. I dare you.

Doubles star Robert Farah will return to ATP Tour!

Reigning Wimbledon and US Open doubles champ Robert Farah was forced to miss the Australian Open with an Anti-Doping Rule Violation hanging over his head.

But he has now been given the go-ahead to return to the ATP Tour!

The ATP states: “Mr. Farah’s account of how the Boldenone entered his system was accepted and it was determined that he bears No Fault or Negligence for the violation.”

In a statement posted in Spanish on Twitter back in January, Farah said he had tested positive for Boldenone and suggested the cause of the failed drugs test – in October in Cali – was due to contaminated Colombian meat.

Farah, one of the hottest men on Instagram, is an absolute Greg in Hollywood favorite is I’m very happy he is going to be able to compete again.

Fenton Bailey reflects on RuPaul hosting SNL: “I cannot actually think of it without crying. Happy tears”

World of Wonder has been instrumental in building the career of RuPaul, first as his managers, and eventually producing the majority of the franchises live shows, podcasts, television specials, and conventions.

Co-founder Fenton Bailey took to Facebook yesterday to reflect on RuPaul hosting Saturday Night Live. I was so loved by his essay that I am posting it here in its entirety:

Sitting on the plane flying back to LA after a last minute dash to NY to see Ru host Saturday Night Live…
Watching Ru deliver his monologue last night brought me back to before Drag Race, back before his star on Hollywood Boulevard, before the cover of Vanity Fair, before the Emmys, before Supermodel, before Starbooty, and even before World Of Wonder.
Sometimes people ask what was Ru like back then?
The truth is that Ru has always been… the same.
Meeting Ru for the first time was one of those rare, magical moments when you get something with absolute clarity. A shock of recognition. He knew exactly who he was and why he is here. He was always a star and it was just a question of the rest of the world catching up. Of course there’s no guarantee that things will work out the way we want, and there’s bound to be disappointments along the way. But on the other hand sometimes things happen that soar way beyond your wildest dreams. Like Ru.
It’s hard to put into words the impact Ru has had on me personally. As Roger Ebert wrote “To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world.” For almost my entire adult life Ru has brought me so much joy. The light, the love and the laughter he brings have been an inspiration through some of the darkest times. Thanks to him I have found everything I was looking for when I moved to America years ago. And more; it takes a village, people, and the people he brought along for the ride have become an amazing family of co-workers, friends and loved ones.
It is a family I cannot imagine my life without.
As he said last night at the end of his monologue:
“If you follow your heart, dare to be different and use all the crayons in the coloring box, who knows where you’ll end up. You just might find yourself hosting ‘Saturday Night Live”.
And to actually be there, and to see him say that last night on the set of Saturday Night Live, live on national television across the country, was simply the best. The mothertucking best.
I cannot actually think of it without crying. Happy tears, because I am so happy for him, and so very grateful too. Thank-you Ru.

Morning Man Classic: Robert Wagner!

Robert Wagner turns 90 today!

He began starring in films as far back as the early 50s including Prince Valiant, Beneath the 12-Mile Reef, Stars and Stripes Forever, Titanic, The War Lover and The Longest Day.

But it is in television where he’s had his greatest success starting in 1967 with the ABC series It Takes a Thief which co-starred Fred Astaire. He followed that up with the hit show Switch with Eddie Albert. That was followed by his most successful series to date: Hart to Hart which had a five-year run on ABC.

In more recent years, he appeared in three Austin Power movies as Dr. Evil’s henchman Number 2. He also had a recurring role as Holland Taylor’s boyfriend on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men and he has had a recurring role on NCIS in recent years.

Showtune Sunday: Oscar winning songs performed by Barbra Streisand, Doris Day and Audrey Hepburn

I’m excited to see the Oscars tonight and wonder who will win the best original song Oscar.

In 1977, Barbra Streisand and Paul Williams won Oscars for co-writing the song: Evergreen (Love theme from A Star is Born) and Streisand performed it.

Here is video from that performance as well as Oscar winning songs from Calamity Jane and Breakfast at Tiffanys. They are Secret Love and Moon River performed by the great stars of those films: Doris Day and Audrey Hepburn, respectively.

WATCH: Laura Dern gets a big surprise from Gay Men’s Chorus of LA at Indie Spirit Awards

At Saturday’s Film Independent Spirit Awards, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and Alex Newell shined a spotlight on “the gayest moments in films that you may not have realized were gay.”

Then somehow, it all ended up being all about Laura Dern.



Morning Man Classic: Robert Conrad!

Sad news to report: Robert Conrad has died at age 84.

He has been featured as a Morning Man Classic several times on the blog over the years and this always leads to several readers recalling how he was one of their first-ever crushes.

Easy to see why!

“He lived a wonderfully long life and while the family is saddened by his passing, he will live forever in their hearts,” family spokesman Jeff Ballard said in a statement to

Conrad was quite the beefcake when he starred in the hit shows Hawaiian Eye and Wild, Wild West in the 1960s.

By the 70s, he had developed a tough guy persona that he exploited in a series of popular commercials for Everready Batteries. He also starred in the hit show Black Sheep Squadron in the mid-70s and was the leader of the NBC team in the then-popular Battle of the Network Stars competitions.

Conrad more recently hosted a weekly radio show and more than a decade ago ran for the presidency of the Screen Actors Guild but lost.

Talk Show Round-Up: Phillip Schofield; James Taylor; Christian Siriano; Ellen DeGeneres

After releasing a statement, Britain’s This Morning host Phillip Schofield speaks out for the first time about being gay. During this emotional chat, he explains to Holly how the discussions with his wife and family went when he opened up to them.

From last night’s The Late Show With Stephen Colbert: As a young musician freshly signed to Apple Records, the first non-Beatle to be so honored, James Taylor was in the studio for some of the recording sessions for “The White Album.” Listen to Taylor share stories from this era in his new Audible audiobook memoir titled “Break Shot.”

On Watch What Happen Live, fashion designer Christian Siriano dishes on styling celebrities including Lizzo, Billy Porter’s iconic tuxedo dress and Demi Lovato’s recent angelic look.

Ellen recently called out Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang for stealing her idea of squirting whipped cream in people’s mouths, and now she’s calling out a Republican. From military reunions to scholarship gifts, Ellen explained how the President turned the State of the Union address into one of her giveaway shows
