Alec Baldwin Is Killing His Next Movie Role (Sort Of).


The director of photography in an Alec Baldwin movie was killed and the film’s director was injured on October 21st when the actor fired a prop firearm on the set of a movie in New Mexico.  Halyna Hutchins, 42, was killed and Joel Souza, 48, was injured around 1:50 p.m. on the set of “Rust,” a Western being filmed in Santa Fe County, Juan Rios, a spokesman for the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, said. The circumstances of the shooting are under investigation.  Mr. Rios said the shooting at Bonanza Creek Ranch happened in the middle of a scene that was either being rehearsed or filmed. He said the Sheriff’s Office was interviewing people on the set to determine how the two had been shot.  This seems scarily similar to the incident that resulted in the death of Brandon Lee (Bruce Lee’s son) during the filming of the movie ‘The Crow’.  

“We’re trying to determine right now how and what type of projectile was used in the firearm,” he said.  Mr. Rios said on Thursday night that the Sheriff’s Office had not filed charges against anyone in connection with the shooting.  Ms. Hutchins was flown to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where she later died, Mr. Rios said. Mr. Souza was taken to CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe. Mr. Souza’s condition was not immediately available.  The film’s producers and a representative for Mr. Baldwin, 63, did not immediately respond to emails or phone calls on Thursday night.  On Thursday morning, Mr. Baldwin posted a photo on Instagram in his film costume, which included what appeared to be a prosthetic wound on his torso.  We know that he didn’t know… but a tad bit in bad taste though.  

Naya Rivera

Naya Rivera is ready for her time in the spotlight as she strikes a sexy pose on the flip cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The 26-year old actress’ rise began on the popular Fox series Glee, where she plays lesbian cheerleader Santana Lopez. But with the musical drama filming its final season, Rivera is ready to move to the next phase of her career as a musician.

“It took a long time to figure out where I wanted to go musically,” she told Rolling Stone. With the kinks worked out, the newly engaged entertainer called on her fiance, rapper Big Sean, to jump on her first single Sorry Not Sorry this past summer. Rivera recalled that while her album is not completed, she was eager to push her label Columbia Records to release the single early. “Get on or get off. I think this is a summer song, and I want it on the radio by the end of the summer,” she told them.

Ethos’s Ruby Skye Commercial: Behind The Scenes.


From ‘The List‘ to a new spot at Bruno’s in San Francisco, to working on brand new shows artists from New York to Los Angeles, my plate has been filled with some interesting new opportunities.  The most recent of which was a gig hooked up by one of my best friends DJ Jeff Phantom.  The upstairs room of Ruby Skye, San Francisco’s most infamous night club got a make over, and the Ethos Tech Production team was there to create the film magic.

Special Thanks: to Jeff Pham, Thabo D’Anjou, Alexandra C., and Ashley F.  Footage provided by Steve Forbes, and additional clips by Michael Bacca.  On set crew – Aaron Collins, Paul Pascale, Spencer Moore, and Matthew Robinson.  Models – Elizabeth A. Hendrix, Kimberly Rucker, Mira Gitoff, and Rachel Kadish.  Music by Funky Notes and Asher Roth.  Editing by Storm McDonald.  Filmed at Ruby Skye San Francisco. 

Rick Ross & Reebok.


Back in my day, companies like Gatorade, Wheaties, Nike, and Reebok used athletes to get the point across that their brand was aimed at the sports players.  I’m a Ricky Rosay fan, don’t get me wrong, but he’s so big, when he turns in a circle, people throw him a welcome back party.  He isn’t exactly the perfect picture of athleticism.  However, although Reebok is taking the a different road with who sports their brand, Rick Ross’s international recognition will do nothing but good things for their name.  Check out the makings of the first collaboration between Rick Ross and Reebok.

Transformers 3 Gets A Bit “Racier”


It looks as though the Decepticons have found a new disguise for the upcoming Transformers 3 movie, scheduled for release in 2012. These wild NASCAR-impersonating robots from outer space were seen tearing up the streets of Chicago during filming for the anticipated blockbuster this past weekend. Chevrolet’s presence has been strong throughout the recent popular Hollywood recreation of the 1980′s cartoon series, most notably with Bumble Bee, the yellow and black concept Camaro and the more recent Corvette Stingray concept, both of which were sighted as well during the Chicago shoot. So it’s no surprise that all three of the NASCAR themed stunt-cars are modeled after Chevy-sponsored teams.
