Published

Columbus Short was spotted on the set of Scandal on Tuesday afternoon looking happier than ever. Generally this wouldn’t be a big deal, but this is the first time the actor has been spotted on set since news surfaced that Short was involved in a bloody bar fight on March 15.

A source close to production tells HipHollywood exclusively that the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes doesn’t “tolerate negative press” and that she “issued him a warning to get his personal issues sorted out.” We are told that if the actor “continues with his violent behavior,” he could get the ax from the show.

Columbus Short gets back to work on the set of 'Scandal', after being seen for the first time since news broke of a bloody bar fight the star was involved in on March 15th

HipHollywood previously reported that the 31-year-old, Kansas City native is being investigated after getting into a bar fight while at Gabe’s Bar and Grill in L.A. According to reports, a man told Short: “You might be richer than me but I get my girls to buy me everything I want including your wife.”

That’s when the former choreographer punched the victim in the face, reportedly breaking the man’s nose. A source tells TMZ that the victim became unconscious for several minutes before eventually being rushed to the hospital. Columbus allegedly left the bar immediately after the fight.

This isn’t the first time the Scandal star has gotten into hot water over solving problems with violence. Back in 2010, Columbus sucker punched victim, Jason Hill after getting into an argument while playing basketball at a Los Angeles fitness gym. Sources tell us that Short recently paid Hill and settled the case.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
