ABC/Bob D'Amico(WASHINGTON D.C.) -- Actor Kal Penn has resigned from the President's Committee on the Arts & Humanities following President Trump's response to the deadly Charlottesville attack.

The actor tweeted the announcement, attaching a formal statement from himself and the other members of the committee, who had been appointed by President Obama. 

A few hours later, he tweeted an update, declaring, "All members have now resigned. Per @politico, PCAH is an official agency, that makes this the 1st White House department to resign."

First lady Melania Trump is the honorary chair of the PCAH.

"The Administration’s refusal to quickly and unequivocally condemn the cancer of hatred only further emboldens those who wish America ill," the statement reads in part, adding, "We cannot sit idly by...without speaking out against your words and actions.... "Elevating any group that threatens and discriminates on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, disability, orientation, background, or identity is un-American."

President Trump has been widely criticized for his response after white supremacists and counter-protesters clashed in Virginia last Saturday. Thirty-two-year-old counter-protester Heather Heyer [HIGH-yer] was killed when James Alex Fields Jr., allegedly allied with the white supremacists, drove his car into a crowd.

While Trump called Fields "disgrace" and condemned "those who cause violence...including the [Ku Klux Klan], neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups," as, "repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans," he caught flak for blaming "both sides" for the violence that took place.

Penn starred on TV's House when Barack Obama took office.  His character was killed off so he could take a job in Obama's White House, where he worked for a year in the Office of Public Engagement.  He remained a member of the PCAH after he returned to acting.

(LOS ANGELES) -- Saying "there are not two sides to bigotry and there are not two sides to hatred," Terminator star and former Republican Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, takes aim at neo-Nazis, white supremacists and President Donald Trump in a new video for ATTN.

Schwarzenegger addresses Trump directly in the Facebook video saying, "As president of this great country, you have a moral responsibility to send an unequivocal message that you won't stand for hate and racism."

The former governor also offers an alternative response to the ones Trump gave after a woman was killed at a rally of neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend, responses in which Trump blamed "many sides," and for which he earned praise from former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.

"As president of the United States, and as a Republican, I reject the support of white supremacists. The country that defeated Hitler's armies is no place for Nazi flags.  The party of Lincoln won't stand with those who care the battle flag of the failed Confederacy," Schwarzenegger offers as a response, turning to a bobblehead figurine of Trump and asking, "Was that that difficult?"

Schwarzenegger also has strong words for neo-Nazis and white supremacists: "Let me be just as blunt as possible: Your heroes are losers. You're supporting a lost cause."

The actor added that he had made a donation to the Jewish human rights organization the Simon Wiesenthal Center in the wake of the events in Charlottesville, and called on others to become active in combating hate groups.

"I hope that you will join me by supporting your favorite anti-hate organization," he said.

The video, posted Thursday evening, had already received nearly 6 million views by midnight.

Lucasfilm(LOS ANGELES) -- A long-rumored "stand-alone" film about Jedi Master-turned-General-turned-self-exiled guardian of Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, looks like it's actually happening.

The character was played by Alec Guinness in the original Star Wars films, and as a young man in the prequels by Ewan McGregor.

McGregor had expressed interest in wearing the robes again if the long-rumored project ever happened, but he's not yet attached to the project, which Variety is now reporting.

The trade notes that Billy Elliot and director Stephen Daldry is in "early talks" with Disney about the project, which will follow next year's standalone Han Solo film.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.

Netflix/Sarah Shatz(NEW YORK) -- Charlie Cox's blind attorney/ninja Daredevil;Mike Colter's unbreakable Luke Cage; Krysten Ritter's hard-hitting, hard-drinking Jessica Jones; and Finn Jones' indestructible Iron Fist team up in Netflix's The Defenders, which is now available for streaming.

The show unites all of Marvel's "Hell's Kitchen Heroes" for the first time. The unlikely is team forced together when a series of clues they individually follow lead them to discover that New York City is in the crosshairs of a mysterious figure played with chilling ease by Sigourney Weaver. "She has a very formidable presence," Jones tells ABC Radio about the Alien series veteran. "...[I]t just elevates the show by having her on it."

Much of the fun of the show is in watching these jagged puzzle pieces of characters trying to fit together. When they're not busting through walls, they're often busting each other's chops: Ritter's ever eye-rolling Jessica Jones pokes fun at Daredevil's costume, and she refers to "hero" as "the H-word." Colter's Cage has at "skinny white boy" Iron Fist's glowing mitt and his alter-ego Danny Rand's vast bank account.

"We almost felt like fanboys by the time we got to The Defenders," Cox admitted, "and we were real excited to see ... what the relationships would be like...I think...what the fans are really going to respond to is the scenes where the four of us are in the same room, kinda just shooting the s***, you know?"

Jones is also a veteran of Game of Thrones, though he already met his end as Loras Tyrell, The Knight of Flowers. He noted, "The difference between Thrones and something like this is the Marvel fanbase is incredibly loyal...people are incredibly...enthusiastic about the show...It's wonderful to be a part of it." 

Marvel is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

ABC/Bob D'Amico(LOS ANGELES) -- On Black-ish, Yara Shahidi plays a very astute and confident young woman, dealing with the issues any teenager faces growing up today, including social media, getting into college and, of course, dating.

Her sense of self is something she will bring into her Black-ish spin-off Grown-ish, which will focus on her character's move out of the house and into college.

"What's exciting about Grown-ish is it's very specifically focused on the Generation Z experience," she said in an interview with ABC News. "I feel like college campuses are highly politicized right now. And to be in that kind of environment, especially when Zoey has grown up in her perfect socioeconomic, liberal bubble ... those are kind of going to be shattered and she has to figure out who she is in the larger context of the world around her."

She said fans should expect to see a different side to Zoey.

"To have a moment where Zoey is actually unsure of herself is really big, because she is this confident character," she added. "While every other character may be spazzing out, she's the one person who is really calm and seems like she has everything together."

Production for the Grown-ish starts next month, with the premiere to arrive in early 2018 on Freeform and the Freeform App.

In real life, meanwhile, Shahidi was accepted to Harvard University.

ABC Radio/Steve Iervolino(NEW YORK) -- Believe him or don't, 50 Cent has gotten Starz's attention.

After claiming the network blamed him for the recent leak of the remaining Power episodes, 50 has seemingly owned up to the crime, claiming he did Starz a favor.

"POWER Ratings up another 10 percent for episode 408," 50 wrote as a caption to a photo of himself on Instagram. "They glad I leaked the s*** now. LOL #SAVAGELIFE"

While it's not certain if 50 actually leaked the episodes or is only joking, the rapper has previously admitted to purposely causing controversy with the hopes of garnering more attention for his series.

50 then switched gears to promote his upcoming BET show, 50 Central, which is set to premiere in September.  "Now watch what I do on BET. #50Centralbet," he wrote.

Last week, Starz vowed to take "legal action" against the person who leaked the remaining three episodes of the fourth season. The network also disabled their press website, where it was reported the leaker accessed the shows.

50 Cent's supposed confession comes after the show's executive producer, Courtney A. Kemp, said the network wouldn't agree to a 12-episode season instead of their normal ten.

Starz has not yet responded to 50's Instagram post.

ABC/Adam Taylor(NEW YORK) -- Steve Harvey is great at a lot of things, but social media might not be be one of them.

On Wednesday night, the Family Feud host took to Twitter to show affection to his wife Marjorie for being his "always" crush. Unfortunately, in his tweet Harvey confused "Man Crush Monday" for "Woman Crush Wednesday."

"My #MCM always @majorie_harvey," he wrote as a caption to a photo of his wife, that was later deleted and captured by EurWeb.

After fans reportedly hounded the host about his incorrect hashtag, Harvey deleted his tweet. He then posted the same photo, writing the correct hashtag "My #WCW always."

HBO - 2017(LOS ANGELES) -- More hacking trouble for HBO.

The cable network's Twitter accounts apparently were hacked Wednesday night.

Messages appearing on the twitter feats of several HBO accounts, including those for shows like The Leftovers, were posted reading, "Hi, OurMine are here, we are just testing your security, HBO team please contact us to upgrade the security - ourmine .org -> Contact"

Tweets also were sent through HBO's main account according to The Hollywood Reporter, including one reading, "let's make #HBOHacked trending!" but those posts were quickly removed.

"We are investigating," a HBO spokesperson told the magazine.

HBO has been dealing with an apparently extensive hacking of his data and emails.  Hackers, who have demanded ransom from the network, have release executive emails, marketing information and unaired shows online.

It's not clear if the Twitter hack is related.

20th Century FoxProduction has started again on Deadpool 2, two days after a stuntwoman was killed on set.

A representative of the local actors' union in British Columbia, where the movie is being shot, told The Hollywood Reporter that the union had been told that production had resumed Wednesday.

The stuntwoman, Joi "SJ" Harris, died when she apparently lost control of her motorcycle and crashed through a plate glass window on Monday.
Harris' motorcycle racing team posted a statement to Facebook on Tuesday writing, ""We are deeply saddened and heartbroken by the loss of Joi “SJ” Harris," calling her "an extraordinary woman with a passion for riding and motorsports," with a "beautiful spirit and bubbly personality" who "will be remembered for her ground breaking career as the first African American female road racer."

On Monday a spokesman for 20th Century Fox, Deadpool 2's distributor, released the following statement to ABC News: “We are deeply saddened by the accident that occurred on the set of Deadpool 2 this morning. Our hearts and prayers are with the family, friends and colleagues of our crew member during this difficult time."

Star and producer Ryan Reynolds himself also tweeted a statement, saying in part he and others were "heartbroken, shocked and devastated…but recognize nothing can come close to the grief and inexplicable pain her family and loves ones must feel in this moment.  My heart pours out to them – along with each and every person she touched in this world."

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- The production of Mission: Impossible 6 has been shut down while star Tom Cruise recovers from a broken ankle, a spokesperson for Paramount Pictures told ABC News Wednesday.

According to a statement from the studio, Cruise broke his ankle while performing a stunt for the film.

The movie remains on schedule to open on July 27, 2018, the studio's statement said.

"Tom wants to thank you all for your concern and support and can't wait to share the film with everyone next summer," the statement concluded.

Over the weekend, ABC News obtained video footage from the set of the film that showed Cruise leaping from a platform and landing short of the building for which he seemed to be aiming. He caught himself with his hands, and then limped away. At the time, neither Cruise's publicist nor a representative for Paramount would confirm that the actor was injured.

In 2013, the action star, 55, told interviewer Graham Norton that he's trained for 30 years to be able to do his own stunts.

"It allows us to put cameras in places that you're not normally able to do," he explained. "When I started producing Mission: Impossible, I started developing different action around what I could physically train to do."

(LOS ANGELES) -- Some fans of HBO's wildly fantasy drama series Game of Thrones love the show so much, they're apparently buying and adopting Siberian huskies, because of their resemblance to the huge, wolf-like direwolves from the show. The problem: after the novelty wears off, many of these dogs are being abandoned at shelters.

“Huskies are a very high-energy breed,” Jodie Simard, executive director of Wagging Tails Rescue in Las Vegas, told ABC Las Vegas affiliate KTNV-TV. “They’re also very intelligent, so if you don’t keep them busy and keep them exercised, they can be destructive.”

In the past six months, Simard added, Wagging Tails has seen a, “huge increase in the amount of huskies surrendered."  

It's gotten to be such an issue that Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage issued a plea to fans buying or adopting huskies.  The actor, who plays Tyrion Lannister, says in a statement released by PETA, "Please, please, if you're going to bring a dog into your family, make sure that you're prepared for such a tremendous responsibility and remember to always, ALWAYS, adopt from a shelter."

Dinklage's co-star Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa, actually adopted the dog that played her direwolf Lady on the show.

“Growing up, I always wanted a dog, but my parents never wanted one. We kind of fell in love with my character’s dire wolf, Lady, on set,” Turner told the Coventry Telegraph in 2013. “We knew Lady died [on the show] and they wanted to re-home her. My mum persuaded them to let us adopt her.”

NBC/Tyler Golden(NEW YORK) -- Marlon Wayans feels right at home in his new NBC series, Marlon, which is loosely based on his life. Part of his comfort comes from the fact that he stars alongside longtime co-star Essence Atkins.

"I love that girl to death. It's kind of like a set marriage -- she gets me," Marlon tells ABC Radio. "She understand me comedically of where I'm going to go."

In Marlon, Wayans plays Marlon Wayne, an Internet star with an over-the-top personality, while Atkins plays his ex-wife, Ashley. The two actors -- who already have a history of starring in five projects together, including A Haunted House and A Haunted House 2 -- acknowledge their close bond. Marlon says their chemistry is part of the draw of the show.

"I call her the heart of the show," Marlon explains. "And it's the thing that's going to make people watch. It's not just the jokes, but people tune in...because they fall in love with the journey of what the characters are going through emotionally."

Atkins concurs, but adds that their on-screen relationship isn't destined to happen off-screen.

"He's an amazing guy and he's amazing friend and we both love and respect each other immensely. It very much mirrors the relationship that our characters have," Atkins says of Wayans. "But I think deep down inside you know when it's not going to work. You don't want to risk the great connection that you have, the great friendship...the great trust... I want Marlon on my six until I'm old and grey.
