The Real-Life Kevin Gnapoor On The Mean Girls Musical

first_img Broadway.com recently caught up with Rajiv Surendra, aka Kevin Gnapoor from the Mean Girls film, about the highly anticipated stage adaptation of the hit 2004 film.“I have heard about it, I’m very excited for it,” Surendra told us at Bette Midler’s annual Hulaween event, which he was attending to promote his new book. “I heard there was a rumor about a song about the word ‘Fetch’ and I really hope that rumor is true.” He continued: “I can’t wait to see it, I can’t wait to see who plays me!”When asked if he would ever be interested in joining the project, Surendra said he would politely step aside for new talent.“I also heard another rumor that Tina wanted to cast original people in the roles and I think that’s a really, really, good idea,” said the OG Kevin G. “ I think it’s an opportunity to have young, fresh faces that haven’t been seen or heard before come onto the stage and be the debut to their career.”P.S. His business cards are incredible. Rajiv Surendra in Mean Girls (Photo courtesy of Paramount Pictures) View Commentslast_img read more

Federal prosecutors said the 56-year-old failed to report the at least $12.5 million in income from the sales.“Glafira Rosales gave new meaning to the phrase ‘artful dodger’ by avoiding taxes on millions of dollars in income from dealing in fake artworks for fake clients,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said.The case, which was first reported by The New York Times last year, is also the subject of a multimillion-dollar lawsuit.Rosales began selling what were described as previously unknown paintings that had never been exhibited before in the 1990s and from 2006 to 2008, she sold about a dozen of the paintings to two prominent Manhattan galleries for more than $14 million, authorities said.She allegedly said her client had ties to Switzerland and wished to remain anonymous, but was in fact fictitious.Investigators found that art, art history and materials science experts determined that “at least several of the paintings sold by her are counterfeit.”Rosales faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for failing to disclose the bank account.

Nine-star Belgium book Euro place, Dutch fight back to beat N. Ireland

first_imgLukaku scored twice as Belgium reached Euro 2020 by putting nine past San MarinoParis, France | AFP |  Belgium became the first team to qualify for the 2020 European Championship finals as Romelu Lukaku scored twice in a 9-0 thrashing of San Marino in Brussels on Thursday, while the Netherlands needed a late comeback to beat Northern Ireland.Lukaku took his record Belgium international tally past 50 goals as Roberto Martinez’s Group I leaders opened up an unassailable 11-point lead over third-placed Cyprus with three games remaining.The world-number-one ranked side booked their spot at next year’s tournament, which will be played at 12 venues across Europe, after seven straight qualifying wins.Russia appear set to take the second automatic slot from the group, after a 4-0 win over Scotland moved them eight points ahead of Cyprus.Belgium will be one of the favourites as they look to lift a first major international title when the Euros get underway on June 12.“In my eyes, nine countries have the talent to win the Euro,” said coach Martinez. “What will make the difference is how you face adversity. It’s necessary to sacrifice yourself for your teammates.”Their victory at the King Badouin Stadium matched their record winning margin of nine goals, having previously beaten Zambia and Gibraltar 9-0 in 1994 and 2017 respectively and hammered San Marino 10-1 in 2001.“Nine-nil is a good result but we would have loved to have scored one more and broken that all-time record,” said Inter Milan striker Lukaku.The first breakthrough arrived when Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans fed Lukaku, who fired home his landmark goal in the 28th minute.The floodgates then opened, as Nacer Chadli slotted into the corner from the edge of the area three minutes later, and visiting defender Cristian Brolli scored a comical own goal 10 minutes before the interval.Lukaku wasted little time in making it 51 Belgium goals, before Toby Alderweireld and Tielemans made it six before half-time.Substitute Christian Benteke drilled in number seven with 11 minutes remaining, 18-year-old Yari Verschaeren scored his first international goal from the penalty spot, and Atalanta defender Timothy Castagne completed the rout in the 90th minute.– Dutch break Northern Irish hearts –Memphis Depay’s late brace rescued the Netherlands a 3-1 win over Northern Ireland which sent Ronald Koeman’s men top of Group C. The Oranje, bidding to reach a first major finals since finishing third at the 2014 World Cup, are level on points with both Germany and Northern Ireland, who have played a game more, but lead on head-to-head record.Michael O’Neill’s visitors were dreaming of a first-ever away win over the Dutch when substitute Josh Magennis headed them in front with a quarter-hour to play.But Depay levelled in the 80th minute, and Luuk de Jong bundled the ball home at the back post in the first minute of injury time to deny Northern Ireland a crucial point before Depay grabbed his second.“We are devastated with the nature of the defeat,” O’Neill told Sky Sports. “We have to win our two remaining games, they are very difficult, Netherlands home and Germany away.”Russia sent Scotland tumbling to a fourth straight qualifying defeat which leaves the Nations League playoffs next March as the Scots’ only possible route to Euro 2020.Artem Dzyuba’s excellent double and goals from Magomed Ozdoev and Aleksandr Golovin mean Russia will qualify with a draw in Cyprus on Sunday.– Croatia close on qualification –Croatia took control of Group E by beating Hungary 3-0 in Split, while Slovakia jumped into second despite being held to a 1-1 home draw by Wales.Luka Modric’s fifth-minute strike and two goals for Bruno Petkovic sent last year’s World Cup runners-up Croatia four points clear of third-placed Hungary.Slovakia fell behind in the first half when former lifeguard Kieffer Moore scored on his international competitive debut for Wales, but secured a draw thanks to Juraj Kucka’s brilliant 53rd-minute volley.Elsewhere, Robert Lewandowski netted a hat-trick, taking his tally this season to 18 goals for club and country, as Poland won 3-0 at Latvia to strengthen their position at the top of Group G.They sit three points clear of closest challengers Austria, who saw off Israel 3-1.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

UPDATED: Bombers get rocked by top seed Sir Charles Tupper

first_imgIn the end, the top ranked team in the tournament was too much for the 16th squad.Sir Charles Tupper Tigers made quick work of the Kootenay reps from Nelson, overpowering the L.V. Rogers Bombers 68-36 in opening round action at the BC High School AAA Boy’s Basketball Tournament Wednesday at the Events Centre in Langley.The Tigers opened up a 26-7 first quarter lead and never looked back.C. Schneller put up 25 points on LVR to lead Sir Charles Tupper.Josh Matosevic scored 14 points and Vinnie Watson had 10 to lead the Bombers.LVR now drops into the consolation round and meets Vernon at 8:30 a.m.Bombers off to AAA Hoop Provincials; meet top ranked Tupper in opener WednesdayIt’s never easy being the 16th seed in any tournament.However, having to play the role of Giant Killers is something all-to familiar for Kootenay Zone rep, L.V. Rogers Bombers.The Bombers play top-ranked Sir Charles Tupper Tigers of Vancouver to open the BC High School AAA Boy’s Basketball Tournament Wednesday at the Events Centre in Langley.The game tips off at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday. “We are young and inexperienced heading into a tough first game against the No. 1 ranked Sir Charles Tupper Tigers of Vancouver,” said Bomber coach Jeremy Phelan, “however, we played Tupper in our first round game last year and know how to prepare for them.”Phelan takes a team with no seniors to the AAA tournament.And know it won’t be easy pulling of the upset.”Key to the game is taking care of the ball and not succumbing to their full court press,” said Phelan about what LVR needs to do against the Tigers.”We had 20-plus turnovers against them last year and lost by 22 points. If we can cut our turnovers in half we give ourselves at least a chance to win.”LVR pretty much owned the Kootenay zone this season. Except for Golden, and an upset loss to Fernie Falcons, the Bombers waltzed through the Kootenay teams.However, at the provincials the competition amps up several levels. Which makes even the slightest lapse in the game prove too much to overcome.”We’ve watched a lot of game tape on them so nothing will be a surprise if they stick to their game plan,” said Phelan.”(But) Tupper (second ranked in 2014) were likely disappointed with their fifth place finish,” Phelan added.”They returned many key players including their starting 6’4” post pair and a strong back court. They press full court and like to play a lot of zone defense to keep their rim protectors close to home.”LVR is led by the front line of Josh Matosevic, Vinnie Watson and Darian Johnson with Robby Dixon and Grade 10 point guard Eamon Studer directing the offence.”We match up quite well with them despite being young,” Phelan, who along with coach Dean Studer, head the sideline crew of the Bombers.”If we can play with effort and composure, and commit to helping each other on defense we may surprise a lot of people in this tournament.”The Bomber boys are the second team from LVR to advance to a provincial basketball tournament. The LVR Senior Girl’s played last week at the BC High School Girl’s AA Basketball Champion.The tournament runs through the week with the final set for Saturday at 6 p.m. in the Langley Events Centre.last_img read more

first_imgMISS SUNSET: A winner of her first two starts at Del Mar last summer, including a crushing 5 ¼ length win at odds of 1-2 in the six furlong Generous Portion Stakes on Aug. 27, she made her third start here on Jan. 13, and lost all chance shortly after the start. Off at 2-1 against open company in a 6 ½ furlong allowance run over a muddy main track, Miss Sunset jumped tire tracks coming out of the seven furlong chute, causing her to completely lose her action and resulting in a last place finish. Bred by Premier Thoroughbreds, LLC and Alan Klein, she’s owned by Klein and Phillip Lebherz. A daughter of Into Mischief, Miss Sunset is trained by Jeff Bonde and can be counted on to show plenty of speed in her first try at two turns and turf.

Dispatched at odds of 1-2 in her Soviet Problem score at Los Alamitos, she was 7-2 first time out in a six furlong Cal-bred maiden special weight race on Nov. 20 at Del Mar–a race she took in virtual gate to wire fashion by five lengths. She can be counted on to show plenty of early zip in the Oaks as she shoots for her third consecutive win. PRINCESS ROI: A one length, gate to wire winner at a mile turf two starts back at Del Mar on Nov. 17, she ran the best race of her career in Santa Anita’s one mile turf Blue Norther Stakes on Dec. 29, as she battled back gamely at the rail under Corey Nakatani, finishing second, beaten a head, while getting a career-top Beyer Speed figure of 72. By Roi Charmant, she was bred in California by GGG Stables and is owned by GGG and Russell Sarno. Trained by Richard Baltas, she has a win and three seconds from four overall starts. ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 25, 2017)–Freshened since a freakish 12-length win in one mile Soviet Problem Stakes on Dec. 17, Joe Turner’s homebred Sircat Sally will bring her front-running game to a mile on turf as she heads a field of ten sophomore fillies in Saturday’s $200,000 California Oaks at Santa Anita.In what appears to be a deep and contentious field of California-bred or sired 3-year-old fillies, Princess Roi, who comes off a game second place finish at a mile on turf versus open company here on Dec. 29, and Miss Sunset, a rousing 5 ¼ length state-bred stakes winner going six furlongs two starts back, also figure prominently in the 28th running of the Cal Cup Oaks.
