    ‘Jackass’ star Dunn dies

    PHILADELPHIA — “Jackass” star Ryan Dunn, who along with his cast mates made Americans cringe and snicker through vulgar stunts in their multimillion-dollar TV and movie franchise, was killed early Monday in a fiery car crash. He was 34.
    Dunn, a daredevil who gained notoriety for diving into a sewage tank and performing other unsavory stunts, was driving his 2007 Porsche in suburban Philadelphia when it careened off the road, flipped over a guardrail and crashed into the woods before bursting into flames. A passenger, Zachary Hartwell, 30, of West Chester, Pa., was also killed, and speed may have been a factor in the crash, West Goshen Township police said.

  • ‘Mormon,’ ‘War Horse’ the big winners at Tonys

    NEW YORK — A slew of acclaimed shows were up for Tony Awards in a remarkably competitive year, but a production that wasn’t even eligible still managed to cast a shadow — well, shall we make that a web? — over the proceedings.
    On a night when the hilariously profane “The Book of Mormon” reigned supreme, the famously troubled “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” got attention both positive and negative at Sunday’s Tonys. There was a performance — certainly rare for a show that hasn’t even opened yet — plus a plug from its famous composers, Bono and The Edge. And of course, there were the obligatory “Spider-Man” jokes, without which no awards show would be complete.

  • ‘Super 8’ lifts off with $37M

    LOS ANGELES  — Hollywood’s summer box-office streak has cooled a bit with a $37 million opening weekend for J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi tale “Super 8.”
    It was a healthy but unremarkable launch in a summer season whose newcomers often open with two or three times as much money. Released by Paramount Pictures, “Super 8” largely features a cast of young newcomers, the story centering on teen filmmakers and an alien entity that escapes from a wrecked train.
    “The movie was never conceived to be a blockbuster, tent-pole film opening to $60 or $70 million,” said Don Harris, head of distribution for Paramount.

  • Gibson’s ex-girlfriend files appeal against lawyer

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend has asked an appeals court to disqualify the Oscar winner’s attorneys handling a bitter custody dispute because she consulted with one of their partners in a paternity dispute with another actor.
    Attorneys for Oksana Grigorieva asked the California 2nd District Court of Appeal to intervene in the case on Monday. They sought to either disqualify Gibson’s attorneys or require a judge hearing the case to review records of the Russian musician’s dealings with the firm.
    Grigorieva met with a partner in the firm of Kolodny and Anteau in 2008 at Gibson’s suggestion, while she was dealing with custody issues involving her son with British actor Timothy Dalton, according to court filings.
