Lashana Lynch on making history as 007 in 'No Time to Die'

  Lashana Lynch on making history as 007 in 'No Time to Die' NEW YORK (AP) — Lashana Lynch was in stunt training when she found out she was going to play a 00 agent in the James Bond film “No Time to Die.” Lynch had already been cast by director Cary Joji Fukunaga and the producers, Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson. But who she was to play had remained a mystery to her. She was doing her best to prep for an undetermined but apparently butt-kicking role. “Nothing made sense. I’m plunged into stunts and they’re teaching me everything under the sun,” Lynch said in an interview. “And I’m like: Why are you teaching me this? What does it mean?”Instead, Lynch just heard bits and pieces as she went.

We haven’t heard much from Jon Gruden since he resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders following the release of emails with racist, homophobic, and misogynistic comments.

Gruden told a Real Sports producer that “the truth will come out” but so far we haven’t seen too much to make people think how Gruden spoke in those emails doesn’t represent who he is. One current Raider talked about how much calmer it was without him there while a statistical analysis shows how the Raiders shed Black players from its roster under Gruden.

While we wait for that truth to come out, we do have the word of John Lynch, current San Francisco 49ers general manager and former Tampa Bay Buccaneer player when Gruden coached that team to a Super Bowl victory. Lynch appeared on KNBR on Friday and shared some insights from a conversation he had with Gruden following the coach’s resignation.

Jon Gruden reveals more details from controversial emails, including vulgarity directed at Roger Goodell

  Jon Gruden reveals more details from controversial emails, including vulgarity directed at Roger Goodell The Raiders coach admits that he sent multiple controversial emails in 2011During an interview with ESPN, Gruden revealed that he used an inappropriate word to describe Goodell.

“First of all, I’ll always be grateful to Jon,” Lynch said on the Murph & Mac show. “We won a Super Bowl together. So, thankful and grateful for that. Someone asked me if I was surprised. Sure, I was surprised because I didn’t know that to be his heart. And those things were … horrifying. That’s just not something I would think would come out of his mouth. And he didn’t just do it to one group of marginalized people; he did it to a whole host of them.

“I had the opportunity during the bye week, I reached out, and was surprised he actually called me back and had a good conversation. He feels a tremendous amount of remorse, as he should. And that’s what you do; you reach out to people and say, ‘Hey, I’m thinking and praying for you.’ And I simply said, ‘Hey, when you’re ready, give me a call,’ and he did.

NFL World Reacts To Monday’s Jon Gruden Report

  NFL World Reacts To Monday’s Jon Gruden Report There’s a new development in the controversy surrounding Raiders head coach Jon Gruden. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported just moments ago that the NFL has sent the Raiders additional emails “to review.” These emails are reportedly in addition to the 2011 email in which Gruden used a racist trope when describing NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith. […] The post NFL World Reacts To Monday’s Jon Gruden Report appeared first on The Spun.

“We shared some thoughts — I’ll leave that privately— but he is extremely remorseful and understands he’s got to make up for that however he can. And I think those are his actions. And that’s the only thing he can do at this point… I’ll leave it at that, but it was terrible, and he’s paying a price. Lost his job, and is in a lonely place right now, and feeling the consequences of those actions.”

Lynch, at least, doesn’t sugarcoat things even if he’s trying to provide some positive context for someone he considers a friend during a time when few people want to feel bad for him. There’s only so much that people will be able to say about Gruden but ultimately it’s going to have to come from him if he wants to change the narrative, if that’s even possible.
