JUSSIE SMOLLETT BREAKS SOCIAL MEDIA SILENCE TO CELEBRATE GAY PRIDE

The Empire star Jussie Smollett has broken his social media fast. On Monday, Smollett posted his first picture on Instagram since he was attacked in January. Soon after reporting the attack, police accused Smollett of staging the hate crime, then later dismissed the 16 felony counts against him. Smollett has maintained his innocence.

The 36-year-old posted a clip from Tarell Alvin McCraney's speech about black queerness while introducing his play Choir Boy, at the 2019 Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall Sunday. Choir Boy was up for Best Play. The Tony Awards featured a rainbow carpet this year in honor of Gay Pride Month.

On social media Monday, he wrote: "So much #PRIDE." Smollett opted to disable comments on the post.

Smollett attended the play’s opening earlier this year and the cast dedicated a performance to him shortly after the attack. During the attack, Smollett reported people "yelling out racial and homophobic slurs."

After the scandal broke, he was written off of season five of Empire. Last week, the show’s creator Lee Daniels said he would not return for the show’s sixth and final season.

SOPHIE TURNER TALKS GOT SPIN-OFF: Sophie Turner rose to fame as Sansa Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Now that the show is over, many are hoping the 23-year-old will consider a spinoff. She told The Hollywood Reporter: "No. It's time for me to say goodbye. She's ended up in a place that I'm so happy with. I don't know. It would be different if someone actually came and said, ‘We want to do a Sansa spinoff show,’ but I'm pretty sure I'd say no. It's been 10 years of watching this character grow, and she's at her peak right now. I'm sure if she carried on and did a spinoff show, it would just be downhill from there. She'd have to go through some other terrible traumas or something, and I don't want to do that."

MORGAN FREEMAN TALKS GOD: For the past three seasons, Morgan Freeman has hosted The Story of God with National Geographic. At a recent screening, Deadline reports he said: "My curiosity about God goes way back. Amazing, you look at this, how similar people are around the world. They have belief systems that may be different from each other on some level or other but they all aspire to goodness and almost every religion promises life ever after." Each episode focuses on a different theme, and producers say their access has been incredible. James Younger explains: "We have a fairly big team to move around the world—about 15 or 20 people, which is quite large for a documentary team," Younger notes. "Then we have to get access to places—to the Vatican, to monasteries in Kathmandu, Notre Dame de Paris… Collaborating with the top local producers in different countries who can help us secure access through foreign governments."
