They typically wear plain clothing with nothing as fancy as a button or a zipper, travel by horse-drawn buggy and shun modern conveniences like electricity. It's that Old World charm of the Amish that draws 8 million tourists - and $1.9 billion - each year to Pennsylvania's Lancaster County, home of the nation's largest Amish community of 31,000. What the Amish don't do, supporters say, is tote rifles as part of a violent protection racket - as depicted in the television show "Amish Mafia" - or regularly defy their religion, like in "Breaking Amish" and "Breaking Amish: Brave New World." And, Amish horror stories are not the norm, despite the plot lines of the upcoming "Amish Haunting."Last week, more than a dozen state officials, including Governor Tom Corbett and Congressmen Joe Pitts and Patrick Meehan, issued a statement citing "bigoted" and "negative, inaccurate and potentially damaging portrayal of (the) Amish" and demanding an end to the shows.The Lancaster Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Convention and Visitors Bureau, and a regional interfaith coalition of clergy echoed those comments.
When Martin Freeman enters the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War, it looks like he might be a pain for Captain America. The latest online rumors are suggesting that Freeman will play the Prime Minister of England, who will push for a global superhero registration act.

However, the same rumors from Latino Review also hint that Freeman’s character was already hinted at in Avengers: Age of Ultron. So stay tuned

Cameron Crowe is finally apologizing for the controversy surrounding his new film Aloha. he wrote Tuesday on his official blog "Thank you so much for all the impassioned comments regarding the casting of the wonderful Emma Stone in the part of Allison Ng, I have heard your words and your disappointment, and I offer you a heart-felt apology to all who felt this was an odd or misguided casting choice." The film, which takes place in Hawaii, stars Emma Stone as a quarter-Hawaiian and quarter-Chinese woman named Allison Ng. The casting drew heavy backlash for whitewashing a character who could have been played by an actress with actual Asian heritage. In his apology, Crowe emphasized that Ng's character is based on a "real-life, red-headed local" who was very proud of her Hawaiian heritage, although she "looked nothing like one."
