WTF?! What did he think, this would be incentive for them to let him continue on?
On the premiere of the US version of The X Factor, a contestant not only chose to perform an original song for the panel of judges, titled I'm a Stud, but also decided that it would be a good idea to drop trou and expose his peen to them - and the entire audience, who responded with a barrage of boos!

This is really unfortunate.
A stuntman on the set of Hangover II is suing Warner Bros. after a stung went wrong, leaving him with brain injuries.
Scott McLean was Ed Helms' stunt double on the Bangkok, Thailand set when he was injured when two cars that were traveling at high speeds collided.
The scene required "precision and timing," but after shooting had already beguin, the film's stunt coordinator, who is also being sued, had changed the timing sequence.

Poor Johnny Depp!
While promoting the new film Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the actor shared some of the less-than-favorable aspects of playing a swashbuckling pirate.
During the production, Johnny suffered a back injury during a stunt which kept him in pain for weeks, explaining:
"I must have done something to my back during a stunt and ended up with this bad sciatic situation. It was this horrible, grinding electricity going through me. I kept shooting; there was no choice. I'd just limp on set. It was monstrous, man — so horrible that I actually started to like it! It was bad, and I had it a good three weeks to a month. But I got used to it and kind of missed it when it was gone."
So sorry to hear about that, Johnny! If your back keeps bothering you, we'll give you a deep-tissue massage on the house. Ha!
We're sure the new Pirates movie will totally be worth all your painful sacrifice while filming and we can't wait to see it!

A miracle! Hooray!
Stunt actor Christopher Tierney spent his Christmas in the ICU this weekend, but it might have been worth it considering the amazing news. Sources are reporting that for the first time since his back surgery, the actor who plummeted 30 feet during a preview performance of the Spider-Man musical, has walked.
Such a blessing for the brave guy!
And he's planning on going back to the show! Hopefully, they'll have fixed a few bugs before they strap him back into the suit.
But make sure you take some time to really rest, bb!
