Jason Isaacs Slams Sean Spicer's Appearance at Emmys 2017

Jason Isaacs was not a fan of seeing Sean Spicer at this past weekend’s Emmy Awards.

The 54-year-old former Harry Potter actor took to Instagram to slam the awards show for inviting the Donald Trump‘s former Press Secretary to the event.

“Hoping to forget politics for one night and bask in other people’s glory at the #Netflix #Emmys party and who do I spot at the bar late at night but the poisonous purveyor of lies #SeanSpicer,” Jason captioned the below photo. “What were the Emmys thinking celebrating this modern day Goebbels, who was the thuggish face of Orwellian doublespeak just moments ago? Three surprising things about him: 1) He comes about up to my nipples 2) He doesn’t think he should hide himself under a rock from shame for the rest of his life. 3) He’s deeply unattractive, from the inside out. Has the aura of a giant festering abscess. Strange, since he was so charismatic at the (elevated) podium. #TooSoon #MuchTooSoon.”

Sean made a surprise appearance on stage during the Emmys to joke about the size of the audience in attendance.

'Star Trek: Discovery' Cast Discusses Rebooting the Franchise in 2017

Jason Isaacs, Sonequa Martin-Green and Michelle Yeoh – cast members of the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery series debuting on September 24 – are on the cover of the latest issue of Variety, out on newsstands now.

Here’s what the cast had to say:

Sonequa on being the first African-American Star Trek lead: “If you say you love the legacy of Star Trek but you don’t love that, then you’ve missed it.”

Sonequa on the new iteration of Star Trek: “Anyone doing a new iteration of Star Trek, you have to understand how deep it is, you have to understand how important it is. You have to understand how much of a pillar it is to our culture. I think you need that in order to really give it the weight it deserves, and I think that — I hope that more than anything — people got the sense of how serious we take this. When I first got started, I had my freak-out phase. I had my almost catatonic moment where I thought, ‘What is happening?’ And I knew very quickly that I couldn’t live there and that I couldn’t create there. I owed it to the story and I owed it to the legacy to get it together. And I had to focus myself in gratitude. I had to focus myself on the passion for the vision for the story that we’re doing.”

Jason on the message the show sends in the Trump-Brexit era: “The world is complicated and horrible, and I don’t know how to explain to my children the insanity of the people who are in charge of it at the moment. I thought it was a good story to tell and something I would be happy to watch, about presenting a vision of the world that’s full of drama but also full of resolution and unity.”

'Star Trek: Discovery' Waited to Begin Production Until Sonequa Martin-Green Was Available!

The upcoming series Star Trek: Discovery had a bunch of delays and the producers just revealed that one of them was waiting for star Sonequa Martin-Green to become available!

The 32-year-old actress was committed to The Walking Dead and AMC wouldn’t let her join another series until her death on that show was made public.

Sonequa opened up about her gratitude for being on the show while joining cast members Jason Isaacs, James Frain, and Mary Chieffo, as well as executive producers like Alex Kurtzman at the 2017 TCA Summer Press Tour on Tuesday (August 1) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

“The honor is mine. The pleasure is mine. I feel that we are all running over—our cups are running over with gratitude and excitement,” Sonequa said about being the first minority female to be a lead on a Star Trek show (via E! News). “We’re bursting at the seams from the weight of it and the breadth of it. We just—we couldn’t be more thrilled to share this journey with you because we understand its significance. We know we’re telling a story we believe in. Everybody is so passionate…This is an epicly grand, yet microscopically tuned, deeply emotional story. We don’t take it for granted. We don’t take it lightly. I certainly don’t. I feel like—it’s a dream to be able to be a part of history. It’s a dream. So, thank you.”

FYI: Sonequa is wearing a Ted Baker dress.
