    Trump, Pence to attend Treasury Secretary Mnuchin's wedding

    President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence plan to be among the guests as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (mih-NOO'-shin's) weds a Scottish actress.

    Mnuchin is to exchange vows Saturday night with Louise Linton at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington. Mellon is a former treasury secretary.

    The 54-year-old Mnuchin worked for the Goldman Sachs investment firm for nearly two decades before founding a hedge fund. He also ran a company that invested in Hollywood movies. Mnuchin is one of the wealthier members of Trump's Cabinet. He also was finance chairman of Trump's presidential campaign.

    The 36-year-old Linton has appeared in movies and TV shows, and recently turned to producing movies. Mnuchin also produced movies before joining the government.

    It'll be Mnuchin's third marriage and the second for Linton.

    Writer sues Tupac filmmakers, alleges copyright infringement

    A magazine writer has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against the creators of the new Tupac Shakur biopic, saying that portions of the film are based on his articles about the late rapper.

    Kevin Powell says in the suit that "All Eyez On Me" borrows from articles he wrote and interviews he did with Shakur in the 1990s for Vibe magazine.

    The lawsuit says, for instance, the film's fictional character Nigel is based on a character Powell wrote about in one of his magazine articles. The suit says the character is based on Jacques "Haitian Jack" Agnant, whom Powell interviewed.

    He sued Lionsgate, Program Pictures, Morgan Creek Pictures and others in the complaint, filed Friday in New York.

    A representative for Lionsgate declined to comment.

    John Legend: Singer, songwriter, spelling bee champ

    John Legend's work has won Grammys, an Oscar and a Tony, but years before achieving global fame, the Legend-to-be took home another prize: spelling bee champ.

    A 1989 story in The Springfield News-Sun (http://bit.ly/2sQ6VSD ) proclaimed, "Product of home teaching wins bee." The newspaper noted the future R&B singer's sharp attire, his steady gaze and crisp enunciation, saying the 10-year-old Legend "came to win ... and win he did."

    Legend, born John Roger Stephens in Springfield in 1978, credited his mother, Phyllis Stephens, and a tutor with helping him study for the contest. He and his siblings were home schooled.

    The newspaper says he took a no-nonsense approach, not cracking a smile during the competition until his tutor cried out with joy when he correctly spelled the winning word: "prejudice."

    Lauren Hutton to be honored at Maine film festival

    Lauren Hutton is going to be this year's honoree at the 20th annual Maine International Film Festival.

    The 73-year-old actress, model and producer will be awarded the Mid-Life Achievement Award next month in Waterville, Maine.

    Festival programmer Ken Eisen told the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/2u03TZ6) that Hutton was part of what he described as a golden age of American filmmaking in the 1970s and that she broke the rules for aging by modeling nude at age 61.

    She'll receive the award July 20 at the Waterville Opera House where her movie "American Gigolo," also starring Richard Gere, will be shown.

    D-Day veteran Alfred Barlow landed on Sword Beach on June 6, 1944. Barlow, who was a corporal when Allied forces attacked the French coast, attended this year’s Memorial in Normandy, the Manchester Evening News reported.

    However, Barlow lost his medals at the service station near Walsall during his return to his home in Stockport on June 8.

    Barlow released images of the lost medals -- the 1939-1945 Star, the France and Germany Star, the 1939-1945 War Medal and the Palestine Medal -- through the Blind Veterans UK charity.

    Grant tweeted his support, including a contact number and said that anonymity would be guaranteed, the Evening News reported.

    Barlow said the incident was “very distressing.”

    “These medals are worth very little to sell but to me they are priceless,” he told the Evening News. “I had intended to pass all of my medals on to my grandson, which makes it even more upsetting.”

    Barlow turns 96 on Sunday and said the medals’ return would be a great birthday gift, Fox News reported.
