Repeat Offender: Reporter Attacks Brad Pitt At ‘Maleficent’ Premiere! Was This Another “Emotional Impulse?”

Published

on

First Will Smith! Then Leonardo DiCaprio! Now … Brad Pitt!

During Wednesday night’s Los Angeles premiere of Angelina Jolie’s forthcoming film, Maleficent, reporter Vitalii Sediuk bum-rushed Brad Pitt while the star made his way down the red carpet.

The Los Angeles Police Department tells HipHollywood that around 7:30 p.m,  Sediuk jumped over the barrier at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood and made contact with Pitt before being taken out by law enforcement. We are told that Ukraine native was arrested for battery.

Vitalii Sediuk is the same reporter who was arrested for attempting to crash the Grammys, who put his face in Leonardo DiCaprio’s crotch during the Santa Barbara Int’l. Film Festival earlier this year and who got slapped by Will Smith for attempting to kiss him.

When HipHollywood talked exclusively with Sediuk in May 2012 about the Smith incident, the reporter described his action as “emotional impulse.”

“I think it was too much. Now I understand it was too much. I just tried to kiss his cheek and he moved his head so fast … Will Smith is a person whom I deeply respect as an actor.”

He added, “I just wanted to do something not extraordinary, but to impress him … It was an emotional moment and I’m sorry for that.”

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
