The #AvatarTheLastAirbender live-action Netflix series has found its Fire Lord Ozai: Daniel Dae Kim. Image
Kim's Ozai is described as the ruthlessly-driven leader of the Fire Nation who demands everyone live up to his impossible standards, especially his teen son, Prince Zuko. Image
Ozai’s drive to conquer and unite the world under firebender rule is a family burden — he believes that it’s his destiny to finish a war started by his ancestors. The character was voiced by Mark Hamill in the animated series. Image
Kim joins previously announced series stars Gordon Cormier (Aang), Kiawentiio (Katara), Ian Ousley (Sokka), and Dallas Liu (Zuko). Image
This is not Daniel Dae Kim’s first project in #TheLastAirbender universe. Previously, he voiced the character of Hiroshi Sato on #TheLegendOfKorra, which served as a follow-up to “Last Airbender.” Image
Here’s everything we know about the upcoming project:

Jennifer Hudson is pitching a new daytime talk show to be produced by the team from “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Although not technically an “Ellen” replacement — her show wouldn’t be a continuation of the “Ellen” deals and is being shopped as a new series — it would be positioned as Warner Bros. TV’s new flagship daytime talk show now that “Ellen” is ending its run.
“Ellen” executive producers Andy Lassner and Mary Connelly also served as show runners on Hudson’s test show, which was recently shot on the “Ellen” stage and is now being used as part of the pitch to station groups.

IATSE has set a date for a ratification vote for its new three-year contract: Voting will begin on Friday, Nov. 12, and the results will be announced on Nov. 15.
The union leadership is urging 60,000 members to back the contract, which provides for a 54-hour weekend rest period and pay hikes for the lowest-paid workers.
The leadership reached the deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers on Oct. 16, averting a nationwide film and TV production strike.

In a memoir being released on Tuesday called “Little Sister,” Lana Wood, Natalie Wood’s sister, writes that Kirk Douglas sexually assaulted Natalie when she was a teenager.
The alleged assault took place in 1955 after Lana and their mother, Maria Zakharenko, dropped Natalie off at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles to meet with Douglas.
Kirk Douglas died in February 2020 at age 103. His son Michael did not respond to Variety’s request for comment. But to the Guardian, Michael Douglas’ publicist issued a statement: “May they both rest in peace.”

.@Isabella_Gomez, who returns to screens today with @hbomax’s #HeadOfTheClass, spoke to Variety about her latest project, what she learned from #OneDayAtATime star @TheRitaMoreno and why #HannahMontana is her dream reboot project.
“I didn’t feel like, ‘Oh, I’m doing another reboot’” @Isabella_Gomez says of #HeadOfTheClass. “Right now, we need so much joy and so much laughter after the couple of years we’ve had as humans that I was really excited to sign on board.”
On #ODAAT, Gomez starred as a high school student. As Alicia Gomez on #HeadOfTheClass, she stands on the other side of the lectern: “I was like, ‘Really, they want me to play the teacher?’ … It was also just fun in that I have a baby face.”

Dwayne @TheRock Johnson is pledging to stop using real firearms on all projects produced by his company, @SevenBucksProd: “We're going to switch over to rubber guns, and we're going to take care of it in post... We won't worry about what it costs.” Image
Johnson's pledge comes after the tragic death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins: "We lost a life. My heart goes out to her family and everybody on set." Image
Johnson says he will only use rubber guns on his sets, and will enforce that rule with any studio he is working with: “Any movie we do that Seven Bucks does with any studio, the rule is we're not going to use real guns.”
