It's hilarious how some posters keep trying to make out that the renaming of Avery Fisher Hall was some kind of big conspiracy. Lincoln Center literally auctioned off the naming rights, and Geffen paid $100 million for them.

Not only that but he's just put a load of people on the crew out of work, and right before Christmas. And there's no guarantee they'll get a job when production resumes, as they may have other projects already lined up when/if production does resume.

This Singer is in the middle of a big film project. However, he keeps “disappearing” due to a “health problem.”

Ha ha.

Let’s talk about his real problem.

His problem is the decades long, systematic sexual abuse of young boys in the entertainment industry.

If he is having any sort of a “health problem”, it should be a chronic panic attack over the fact that karma and the law are catching up to our mercurial director. About time, right?

Look for him to get replaced on this project soon.

By the way, this Singer is much more likely to direct a musical than to perform in one.

If Singer is ever looking for a character witness, he can forget about gay rugby star Ian Roberts, who worked with Singer and Spacey in 2006 on "Superman Returns."

Here's some of what Roberts is saying now about the two:

“I was really quite excited about working with Kevin Spacey,” Roberts said. “I was on set five or six weeks with him, in close proximity – I played basically his bodyguard in the film, so all the scenes I was in, he was in. “But he was a very difficult person to like.
“Plus, Bryan Singer the director has also got a dubious past. “Bryan’s history is quite dark.”
According to Roberts, he was reminded repeatedly that Spacey’s sexuality was not a topic for discussion. “I thought everyone knew Kevin Spacey was gay, I didn’t know it was a secret,” he said. “He’s camp as a row of pink tents. “I didn’t know it was one of those things we couldn’t talk about on set. “I got reminded about that. “I was like ‘really, we’re actually supposed to play dumb here? You’ve got young men, late teenagers, hanging around your trailer’.”
Roberts said Spacey and Singer appeared to be close on set.
