Philadelphia Eagles Player Curtis Marsh Jr: “I Hate To See DeSean Jackson Go”

Eagles player, Curtis Marsh is calling DeSean Jackson’s recent departure from the Philadelphia Eagles a huge loss.

Marsh told HipHollywood exclusively while on the green carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Draft Day that DeSean Jackson was truly an incredible athlete.

“I hate to see DeSean go because he’s been here my first three years in the league with Philadelphia, hes always been one of the biggest stars on the team and he is one of the best in the league,” the cornerback explained.

“I feel like the guy worked really hard every single day and it’s part of the business. I hate to see him go. He will be a very hard player to replace, one of a kind player. I wish him luck wherever he is right now in Washington and I know he is going to ball out.”

Last week, the Eagles announced that they were releasing Jackson and according to a source, the decision was based partly on some of Jackson’s “off-field behavior.”

“After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson,” the team posted via Twitter. “The team informed him of his release today.”

There are reports that the 27-year-old wide receiver had some affiliation with Los Angeles gang members who have been connected to two homicides since 2010. Reports of Jackson’s gang affiliation drew some “concern” for the organization.

“I don’t know anything about that,” Marsh told HipHollywood when asked about the reported gang connection. “To my knowledge, DeSean has always been a hard working football player just like everybody else. When he was in the locker room he was one of us and I never heard anything different.”

Jackson will start working out with the Redskins next week and according to reports, Washington is excited about their new addition. “A guy I absolutely hated playing against for eight years and a guy that hurt my teams countless times,” nose tackle Barry Cofield told ESPN. “So I was very excited getting him.”

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

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 crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, 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 its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

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

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural 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.
