Dustin Diamond Arrested in Wisconsin for Allegedly Stabbing Man


Ozaukee County Sheriff's Office(PORT WASHINGTON, Wis.) -- Saved By the Bell star Dustin Diamond was arrested Friday morning in Wisconsin for allegedly stabbing a man after an altercation at a local bar, the Ozaukee County Sheriff's Department said.

Diamond, 37, played Screech Powers in the hit 1990s show.

The actor was in possession of a switchblade and arrested for second-degree recklessly endangering safety, carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct, according to the police.

Officers responded about 11:15 p.m. Thursday to a local bar -- the Grand Ave. Saloon -- after a 37-year-old man "had stabbed another male patron and left the bar," police said. The knife was later recovered by police in Diamond's vehicle early the next day, police said.

Documents obtained by ABC News from the district attorney's office confirmed this man was Diamond, who was charged on three counts after he appeared in court Friday afternoon.

If convicted on the recklessly endangering safety charge, it could result in up to 10 years in jail, according to the documents.

Diamond was arrested along with his girlfriend, who was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and released, police said.

The victim suffered wounds that were not life threatening, was treated and is currently recovering at home.

Diamond has not entered a plea yet, authorities said earlier in the day.

Diamond's rep wasn't able to comment yet because he wasn't familiar with the details of the case.

Bruce Jenner Attends Ex-Wife Kris Jenner's Christmas Party


Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) -- It looks like the guestlist for Kris Jenner's annual upscale Christmas party didn't change much from prior years, even though she's divorced and is rumored to have a new boyfriend.

Along with her children -- Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian along with Kendall and Kylie Jenner -- the reality show matriarch also invited TV personality Maria Menounos and even her ex-husband, Bruce Jenner, Us Weekly reports.

Kris and Bruce divorced after 22 years of marriage on Dec. 16. Rumor has it Kris is now dating a 34-year-old man named Corey Gamble.

Previously, Kris said her split from Bruce was friendly.

"You just have to be grown-ups," she told Us. "And say, 'We're better apart than we are together.' At the same time, we have children together, and we have memories and holidays and traditions. I don't want to give that up. I don’t want him to take that away from me and I don't want to take that away from him."

There's no word about whether or not Gamble, or Kris' son Rob Kardashian, were at the festivities as well.

"The Interview" Opens to Sold-Out Crowds


Sony(NEW YORK) -- Sony is thanking theater-goers for watching the limited release of The Interview, which grossed over $1 million in its first day in theaters.

"Considering the incredibly challenging circumstances, we are extremely grateful to the people all over the country who came out to experience The Interview on the first day of its unconventional release," Rory Bruer, president of worldwide distribution for Sony Pictures Entertainment, said in a statement Friday. "The audience reaction was fantastic - the limited release, in under 10% of the amount of theaters originally planned, featured numerous sell-outs and a first-day gross over $1 million."

Hundreds of screenings of The Interview were sold out on Christmas Day despite Sony releasing the film online the day before.

Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton explained the decision to ultimately go forward with the release.

"It was essential for our studio to distribute this movie, especially given the assault on our business and on our staff," Lynton said in a video obtained by ABC News.

Yahoo Movies writer Jordan Zakarin said, "It would have been a major black eye for the company had they not done so."

Less than a week ago, following growing threats by hackers to carry out an attack like that of Sept. 11, 2001, Sony pulled The Interview from its planned theatrical release, but then backpedaled.

Hackers released personal information of Sony employees and email correspondence between executives. The FBI and State Department pointed fingers at North Korea.

The isolated country denied responsibility for the attack but a government official called it a “righteous deed” in the state media.

Brad Garrett, ABC News consultant and former FBI special agent, said the information the FBI has released is not necessarily enough to pin the attack on North Korea.

"The malware they've used, they've used before -- but so have other people. The servers they've used, they've used before -- but also so have other people. The arguments of many people are that the uniqueness of how the code was written was malware, including access to certain passwords, suggests they had inside access," Garrett said.

"Dancing With The Stars: Live!" Tour Begins Saturday in Niagara Falls


ABC/Fred Lee(NEW YORK) -- If you need a little Dancing With The Stars fix between now and when the new season starts, you can check out the tour which begins Saturday.

"Dancing With The Stars: Live!," a live tour based on the ABC show, will take over 39 cities over the next two months.

This season's champ Alfonso Ribeiro is the host of the show.

"The big difference between, you know, the competition and going out and just performing is that there's no pressure on it," Ribeiro told ABC News.

Ribeiro will be joined in some cities by different celebrities from the show, but it's mostly about the pros, like his partner Witney Carson and pro dancer Mark Ballas.

"The last few times we went out it was awesome," told ABC News. "We had a blast. It's great to get out there in front of the fans, kinda give back and come to their hometowns ... kinda give back to them for supporting us, uh, for so long on the show and, uh, it's always great. The vibe is, the people lose their minds. So I'm, I'm really looking forward to that."

The show kicks off in Niagara Falls, New York, and ends in Los Angeles in February.

"Pitch Perfect 2" Star Brittany Snow Reveals She Was Bullied Growing Up


Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Brittany Snow has been a fixture in hit films like Pitch Perfect and John Tucker Must Die for the better part of a decade, but before her success, the star reveals she didn't have the best time in school.

The actress, 28, said before social media, there was another way for girls to get together online and poke fun.

"AOL Instant Messenger was a big thing back in the day, where girls would get on it and make fun of me," she told People magazine.

Snow said because of this abuse, she decided to help form Love is Louder so girls -- boys too -- could now use social media for good, making kids feel like they are part of something, spreading love, not hate.

"When the suicides were starting to happen and kids were being bullied in schools, I felt really compelled to do something because I was bullied in school, and I didn't really fit into a category that a lot of programs that were being started had," she added. "People are really speaking out about what they struggle with, and that's really cool to me. I kept my stuff -- and I think a lot of people do -- very secret."

"A Charlie Brown Christmas" to Turn 50


ABC Photo Archives/ABC via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A Charlie Brown Christmas is the story of a great big holiday, a tiny tree and a group of children who are trying to make sense it all.

The beloved Christmas classic – in which Charlie Brown tries to convince others that the holiday is about far more than materialism – has reached a special milestone: it's entering its 50th year.

The animated TV special debuted in December of 1965, and, when it comes to holiday viewing pleasures, it ranks right up there with big screen classics such as Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Ron Simon, television historian and curator of The Paley Center for Media in Manhattan, talked about the film’s appeal.

Similarly to the themes of in A Christmas Carol or It's a Wonderful Life, Charlie Brown also tries to find “a deeper meaning to life,” Simon said, adding that Charlie Brown’s struggles parallel those of many viewers of the film.

It’s “that yearning, that longing for something very much deeper than just shopping and commercialization,” Simon said.

It’s interesting that the Christmas special that’s known for frowning upon the commercialism of the holidays was itself originally sponsored by Coca-Cola, Simon said.

The brand was once featured prominently throughout the original, but those scenes – such as one in which Charlie Brown’s friend, Linus, runs into a Coca-Cola sign – have been removed because the brand is no longer the sole sponsor of the special.

The original closing credits had featured the Peanuts gang singing “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing” along with an announcement that the program had been brought to viewers by the local Coca-Cola distributors. Many people had wondered over the years why the song ends abruptly. The closing credits have been re-mastered in recent years to allow viewers to enjoy the song in full.

The Christmas special was revolutionary at the time for its catchy jazz score and for Charles Schulz’s insistence that the characters be voiced by actual children. Schulz was the creator of the iconic comic strip, “Peanuts,” which featured Charlie Brown and friends, including Linus and Lucy van Pelt, Franklin, Sally Brown and Charlie’s dog, Snoopy.

The popularity of A Charlie Brown Christmas has spawned dolls, toys and above all, an appreciation of what are now famously called "Charlie Brown Christmas trees” – trees which may not be the ideal of a Christmas tree but which are just as meaningful in spite of their scraggly appearances.

For adults and children alike, the magic of the special comes down to its message.

Five-year-old Eileen Lucarelli of New York knows it all too well, telling Good Morning America: “It’s about sharing!”

James Franco Spends Christmas With Family After "The Interview" Debuts Online


Sony / Columbia(LOS ANGELES) -- James Franco was thrilled when The Interview was released on Tuesday, and then was able to spend time with his family.

The actor, who stars in the controversial Sony film, posted a photo on Instagram on Christmas, wishing his fans a happy holiday.

It's been a long couple of weeks for Franco, 36, whose movie was shelved by Sony Pictures Entertainment following a cyber attack and threats against theaters that planned to screen the comedy. The production company announced Wednesday that the film would be released through various streaming services.

Just after midnight Thursday morning, Seth Rogen, who co-wrote and co-directed the film with Evan Goldberg, attended a screening of the movie in L.A.

"If it wasn’t for theaters like this and for people like you guys, this literally would not be f****** happening right now,” Rogen told the crowd. "Thank you so f****** much for coming."

Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg Drop in at "The Interview" Screening


David Livingston/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Two special guests dropped in at a screening of The Interview early Thursday in Los Angeles.

Seth Rogen and director Evan Goldberg – the movie’s co-directors – visited the Silent Movie Theatre for the 12:30 a.m. screening, speaking to the crowd before the event.

“Thank you so f------ much for coming. We thought this might not happen at all,” Rogen told the audience.

The movie had been shelved by Sony following a hacking attack, sparking controversy over its plot concerning a fictional assassination attempt against North Korean leader Kim Jong un. Sony later decided to release the movie in select screenings and through streaming services. Rogen also stars in the movie alongside James Franco.

Goldberg and Rogen are thankful that audiences can see the movie.

“If it wasn’t for theaters like this and for people like you guys, this literally would not be f------ happening right now,” Rogen told the crowd.
