Haim Saban Featured in the Los Angeles Times

Ahead of receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Haim Saban is featured in the March 19, 2017 edition of the Los Angeles Times.

The article outlines his entire life, from his immigration to the United States to his various jobs and the friends he’s made as both a television executive and philanthropist.

“I’m laying in my bed in my hotel room in Japan. At the time there is no Netflix, no cable, no nothing — just three channels playing game shows,” Saban said of the serendipitous 1984 business trip. “All of the sudden there were these five kids in spandex fighting monsters. Don’t ask me why, but I fell in love. It was so campy!”

Rene Naufahu Charged With Sexual Misconduct

Rene Naufahu (Ji from Power Rangers Samurai) is going through court proceedings to address 17 sex charges pressed against him, according to a report from Radio New Zealand.

He was originally charged in January 2016, and faced a trial in December 2016 that was aborted after two days for reasons unknown to the press. At the time, he was only facing 15 charges, two charges have been added since then and the date for a new trial is still being set at this time.

While Naufahu originally wanted this suppressed for the good of his family and career, he’s released a statement to the media expressing his desire to defend himself publicly, and rescue the reputations of other actors who were assumed to be the defendant in this case.

“I now no longer seek suppression with my family’s support. I am pleased to be able to make this decision and I know that it is right. I am quite prepared to confront these charges openly and will do so.”


Naufahu’s next court date is currently scheduled for April 2017.
