Mitt Romney served as Eliza Dushku’s bishop in the Mormon church when she was growing up, and while she remembers him as a nice man, she won’t be campaigning for him, largely because of his views on gay rights. “I’m sure he’s a nice guy.

But what they stand for I don’t find to be tolerant or just.”
Chris Colfer’s Struck By Lightning debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival this weekend to largely positive reactions, which he credits to director Brian Dannelly. “A lot of the stuff is exactly how I had it in my mind.
