Actress Janet Carroll Passes Away At 71

So, so sad.

Janet Carroll reportedly passed away Wednesday in NYC after suffering a long illness, and is survived by son George and daughter-in-law Lauren.

You may best remember Janet Carroll as Tom Cruise's trusting mother in the iconic 1983 film Risky Business, but the seasoned actress appeared in Memories of Me, Enough, Forces of Nature, Married with Children and Melrose Place among MANY others.

Janet was also a veteran stage actress, and began her fruitful career at the Kansas City Starlight Theatre.

A memorial service will be held Saturday in New York at the Advent Lutheran Church.

We only hope she has found her peace.

Our hearts go out to her family and friends during this difficult time.

Congratulations, Ed! After so many years entertaining audiences on TV, this is definitely well deserved!

Disney Getting Sued…Over Muppets!

Filed under: Legal MattersDisneyBusiness Blitz

disney being sued over muppets

Hopefully Disney can work all of this out before that next Muppets movie is released!

Former Married…With Children executive producer Russell Marcus has filed a lawsuit against Disney/Jim Henson Co./The Muppets Studio, claiming they haven't paid him royalties for coming up with the idea of a Muppet Workshop.

For those of you who haven't experienced the magic of a Muppet Workshop, it's kind of like a Build-A-Bear Workshop, only you build Muppets instead of bears (well, unless you build Fozzie…)

Marcus claims he signed an agreement in 1998 to become more involved with the "Muppet brand," and then in 2000 he pitched the Muppet Workshop concept, and a year after that Henson signed a written agreement with him which ensured that he'd get 2.5% of royalties from Muppet Workshop-related profits.

After Disney bought the Muppets though, they started placing Muppet Workshops in FAO Schwartz and then Disney theme parks. When Marcus asked about them, he says Disney claimed they haven't profited from the workshops.

Marcus is NOT convinced though, and he's suing Disney for "breach of contract, fraud and deceit, and unjust enrichment," and he's demanding compensatory damages.

Sorry to hear it, Marcus. If you in fact came up with the idea, we completely understand how you'd want the proper monetary compensation….but as Kermit says, it's not easy being making green.
