Entertainment news in brief

CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. – Darth Vader is a tattooed 43-year-old former Marine who owns a gym and is raising funds online for a bone marrow transplant. The Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester reports that a western New York man legally changed his name last year to match the villain in the “Star Wars” films. The former Eric Welch, of Canandaigua, says he grew up in foster homes and didn’t have strong family ties to his name. The “Star Wars” fan says he chose Darth Vader for his new name because the character carries an aura of leadership and toughness. He tests his own toughness by competing in half-marathons and endurance events. He was diagnosed with leukemia in 2002. A spokeswoman for the Department of Motor Vehicles confirms that Darth Vader is his legal name. The best-selling author of the “Harry Potter” books has responded to mixed reactions after the cast for “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” – a new London play featuring Harry as an adult – was announced Monday. The role of Hermione, made famous in the film versions by Emma Watson, will be played by Swaziland-born actress Noma Dumezweni. Rowling said on Twitter that the character’s skin color had in fact never been specified in the books. “Canon: brown eyes, frizzy hair and very clever. White skin was never specified. Rowling loves black Hermione,” she wrote. MOSCOW – Ukrainian news media are reporting that the country’s national security service has banned the leader of the group Limp Bizkit from entering the country for five years. Fred Durst, the founder of the group and its lead singer, was quoted in news reports in October as saying he was interested in buying a house in Crimea, the Black Sea region annexed by Russia in 2014. The Ukrainian online publication Apostrof on Monday reported that the security service in November had banned Durst’s entry for five years “in the interests of guaranteeing the security of our state.” The Interfax news agency reported that the security service had confirmed the ban, but did not give details. LOS ANGELES – Rapper The Game has pleaded not guilty to charges filed after he was accused of punching and threatening an off-duty police officer during a basketball game. The rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, entered the plea Monday in a Los Angeles courtroom. Taylor was charged in June with one felony count of making criminal threats and a misdemeanor assault and battery charge over the altercation that occurred in March. Los Angeles police officer Onyebuchi Awaji testified at a hearing this month that Taylor threatened to kill him after punching him during the game after an intentional foul. ‘Star Wars’ fan alters name to Darth Vader CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. – Darth Vader is a tattooed 43-year-old former Marine who owns a gym and is raising funds online for a bone marrow transplant.
