Pedophile’s Long Trail of Victims Hundreds contact FBI with information about dead teacher Hundreds of people have contacted the FBI about a teacher suspected of drugging and molesting boys during a four-decade career at international schools on four continents, greatly expanding the potential number of suspected victims. The FBI said last month that William Vahey had molested at least 90 boys, whose photos were found on a memory drive stolen by his maid. The bureau said Tuesday that it has now “been contacted by several hundred individuals from around the globe wishing either to
Washington Accused pedophile William James Vahey is pictured in 1986, 1995, 2004 and 2013.
reach out as potential victims or provide information.” Special Agent Shauna Dunlap said people who have information about Vahey should call or contact the FBI through its website. Vahey killed himself at age 64 after evidence of molestation was found on the memory drive. He was said to be one of the most beloved teachers in the world of international schools that serve
the children of diplomats, well-off Americans and local elites. The discovery of his molestation has set off a crisis in the community of international schools, where parents are being told their children may have been victims. Apparently, not even Vahey’s victims knew they had been molested. The double-cream Oreos that he handed out at bedtime on school trips were laced with sleeping pills
— enough to leave the boys unconscious as he touched them and posed them for nude photographs. There were decades of missed opportunities to expose Vahey, starting with a California sex-abuse conviction that didn’t prevent him taking jobs exposing him to children. In early March, the maid who had taken the memory drive handed it to a school director in Nicaragua. When Vahey was confronted, according to an FBI afﬁdavit, he admitted giving the pictured boys sleeping pills, adding: “I was molested as a boy, that is why I do this. I have been doing this my whole life.” The U.S. Embassy in Managua was notiﬁed the next day, but Vahey had already left the country. He traveled to Minnesota, where he killed himself.

Jackie’s Letters Provide Rare Insight For more than a decade, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy revealed pieces of her life in ink that she never spoke of, penning nearly 30 letters to an Irish priest, Joseph Leonard, from 1950 to 1964. The newly discovered letters will be sold at an auction next month. Here’s some of what they reveal. (THE WASHINGTON POST/E XPRESS) They only met twice in 14 years
She had concerns about Kennedy
JFK’s death tested her faith
According to The Irish Times — the source for all of the letters’ content — Jacqueline Bouvier, 21, met Joseph Leonard, then 73, in 1950 when she was visiting Ireland. She saw him a second time with her husband, John F. Kennedy, then a U.S. senator, when they were in Dublin five years later. Her correspondence with him lasted until his death in 1964.
In a letter to Leonard in 1952, she described how she was in love with Kennedy but was concerned he might prove to be like her father, John Vernou Bouvier III. “He’s like my father in a way — loves the chase and is bored with the conquest — and once married needs proof he’s still attractive, so flirts with other women and resents you. I saw how that nearly killed Mummy.”
After her husband’s assassination in 1963, she wrote to Leonard using black-edged mourning writing paper, confiding how she was “bitter against God” and struggled to find comfort in her Catholic faith. “I have to think there is a God — or I have no hope of finding Jack again.” She said she didn’t want to be bitter “or bring up my children in a bitter way” and was “trying to make my peace with God.”

Bollywood Divided by Politics Movie stars show rare election interest in Twitter arguments New Delhi When the hashtag #BollywoodSplit started trending recently on Twitter, people might have assumed that it referred to the romantic woes of India’s glamorous movie stars. But it was a split of a different kind that electriﬁed the Hindi movie industry — one involving politics.

Can D.C. Handle Cabs, Uber, Sidecar and Lyft? Washington
The topic was legislation that would establish rules for app-based transportation services such as Uber, Lyft and Sidecar — but it was D.C.’s taxicab industry that took a beating during a Monday council hearing. The District’s taxi drivers were criticized for being rude and unresponsive, refusing to pick up certain riders and drive to certain places. Their representatives were scolded for wanting to shut down the competition rather than make improvements that would make D.C.’s cabs more competitive. It was a long (more than ﬁve hours of testimony) but spirited afternoon, with several testy exchanges. How to regulate these new services that have grown exponentially in D.C. and across the U.S. has become a major issue for policymakers from Seattle to Miami. The council chamber was jammed with taxicab drivers carrying placards that read “Justice” and “Respect,” Lyft drivers in sig-
Maryland and Virginia are also moving to regulate the services. In Maryland, after nearly a year of study, the state’s chief public utility law judge said Uber should file an application to operate as a for-hire carrier. A final decision on that order is pending. In Virginia, officials have levied more than $35,000 in civil penalties against Uber and Lyft for operating in Northern Virginia without proper permits. Portland, Ore., New Orleans and Miami are among the cities that have blocked Uber from operating there altogether. (T WP)

checks. The legislation essentially makes permanent emergency regulations that were passed by the council last year. The D.C. Taxicab Commission also has proposed legislation with similar requirements, but places a 20-hour-per-week limit on drivers for such services. Drivers who wish to work more would have to obtain credentials from the taxi commission. Many who testiﬁed — drivers and passengers alike — sang the praises of newcomers Uber, Lyft and Sidecar. A small number of taxicab drivers took to the mic, with many saying they don’t mind the competition, but that the rules proposed by the council give the app-based drivers an advantage because they don’t face the same licensing and permitting requirements as cab drivers. This isn’t the last time we’ll hear debate about these issues. A nd we’ll see what happens when the legislation moves to the full council for a hearing.

The Vatican responds to a 2013 petition by ‘The Exorcist’ author Washington The author of the thriller “The Exorcist” has new hope he has put the fear of God in Georgetown University. William Peter Blatty, a Georgetown graduate, submitted to the Vatican last fall a petition with some 2,000 signatures calling for the school to be stripped of the labels Catholic and Jesuit. The petition said neither the faculty nor the student body was suffi-
ciently Catholic, and Blatty complained about “scandals,” including that the school had invited thenHealth and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, a supporter of abortion rights, to speak. The Vatican’s response has apparently given Blatty hope — even though it denied his request for speciﬁc ofﬁcial interventions, including a visit by Vatican investigators. “The matters to which you referred … cannot be considered grounds for a hierarchical recourse,” said the letter dated April 4 from Archbishop Angelo Zani, secretary of the Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education. The brief letter said this was

because Blatty himself had not “suffered an objective change.” However, the letter, ﬁrst reported by the National Catholic Regis-
ter, also said this: “Your communications … constitute a well-founded complaint,” Zani wrote. “Our Congregation is taking the issue seriously, and is cooperating with the Society of Jesus in this regard.” It was not clear where Zani’s congregation might take the case, but Georgetown spokeswoman Stacy Kerr said the school has never received anything from the Vatican or the Archdiocese of Washington, to which Blatty had also complained. Georgetown off icials have disputed Blatty’s assertion that the university has lost its Catholic identity. M I C H E L L E B O O R S T E I N
Fact-Checking the Candidates The Democratic candidates for governor in Maryland met last week for their first debate ahead of the party primary June 24. Here is a deeper dive into some of the claims made by Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Del. Heather Mizeur and Attorney General Doug Gansler. ( THE WASHINGTON POST ) Corporate Taxes
The claim: “I’ve expanded health insurance to 50,000 more children in our state,” Mizeur said.
The claim: Brown lambasted Gansler for proposing “a $1.6 billion tax giveaway.”
The reality: In 2008, Mizeur introduced a bill to use income tax returns to reach low-income families with children in need of health insurance. In 2009, officials reported on general efforts to make it easier for low-income residents to sign up for government-provided health insurance, which resulted in 50,000 children gaining coverage. But it’s unknown if all did so because of the act. It is also unknown how many more gained coverage since then.
The reality: Gansler definitely proposed gradually reducing the corporate income tax rate from 8.25 percent to 6 percent, to match Virginia’s rate. But under the proposal, the corporate tax rate would drop by a quarter percentage point annually — meaning it would take nine years. At that point, the state would collect at least $300 million less a year. Brown’s $1.6 billion figure reflects an estimate of the cumulative lost revenue over the entire nine years.
The claim: Gansler said “the last we’ve heard was four people” signed up for health insurance through Maryland’s troubled site.
The reality: There’s no question that Brown was a visible figure last year when Gov. Martin O’Malley successfully championed a repeal bill in the legislature. Brown testified on the legislation and took a leading role at news conferences. But Gansler is correct that Brown never sponsored a repeal bill during his tenure in the House of Delegates.
The reality: Gansler points to an article reporting that during the first day the site was live, “only four people had signed up.” He argues that since state officials cannot say how many people signed up through the site since then or by other means, four is the only reliable stat. Every new application for insurance was processed through the site, although sometimes with help from employees, an exchange spokeswoman said.
Up next: A second Democratic debate will be held June 2. A debate for the Republican candidates is scheduled for May 31.

other sensors and radars. But the new fence will be able to track as much as 10 times that. It would also be able to identify smaller items, some the size of a golf ball. The new Space Fence, however, still won’t provide what many think is the ultimate solution: cleaning up space. Tracking the debris “is a necessity, but not sufﬁcient,” said Joan Johnson-Freese, a professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College. “We need to move on to an active plan for removal.”
Orbital junk zipping around the globe can be a major threat. Enter the fence. Most man-made space junk is situated in low-Earth orbit, at an altitude below 1,240 miles.

then cataloged and tracked as they pass through the radar again and again, until analysts, using massive computer databases, can predict where those pieces of debris will be in the future and forecast possible collisions, like the ones dramatized in the ﬁlm “Gravity.” But the objects are moving so fast scientists say there’s no way astronauts could see what’s coming. And for the approximately 1,100 satellites — and the International Space Station and the Hubble telescope — to get out of the way, the warnings often have to come well in advance. The new system is vital, ofﬁcials say, because it will be able
How does NASA shield itself from all of that flying debris?
When did space pollution start to become a problem?
Knowing that the International Space Station is going to be pelted by all sorts of garbage, it was designed to be the “most heavily shielded spacecraft ever,” NASA says. Astronauts wear spacesuits lined with a layer of material used in bulletproof vests to help protect them from flying projectiles. The space shuttle was also designed to withstand the onslaught; its windows were layered three deep for protection.
Since Sputnik was launched in 1957, the debris has grown. Spent rocket boosters have exploded. Defunct satellites left in orbit have decomposed. Much of the debris is attributed to two events, which added thousands of new pieces of garbage to space: In 2007, China blew up one of its dead weather satellites, and two years later, an active U.S. communications satellite crashed into a defunct Russian satellite.
to track more and much smaller pieces of debris, which can whip around the globe as fast as 17,000 miles per hour. At that velocity, even something just a half-inch around would pack a punch like a bowling ball traveling at 300 mph, according to NASA. “It’s absolutely essential,” said Todd Harrison, a defense analyst at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments. “It’s the most basic level of defense: You can’t defend against it, if you don’t know what’s there. … And we don’t want to be playing Russian roulette with our military space systems.” Now, the Defense Department tracks about 20,000 items with
But it’s far more difﬁcult than it might seem. It’s incredibly expensive, for one thing, and cleaning up space isn’t exactly the kind of domestic program that members of Congress can rally behind. Then there are the international tensions. Countries continue to own the junk they’ve launched into space, and China, for example, wouldn’t be thrilled if the United States decided to take down one of its satellites. Even though the movie “Gravity” raised awareness of the space debris problem, Johnson-Freese doesn’t think there will be real action on removing the rubbish until there’s a crash that “affects people, and the general public says, ‘Why isn’t my cellphone working?’ ” C H R I S T I A N D AV E N P O R T (THE WASHINGTON POST )
What’s being done about it?
Space: so vast, so open. And yet, so littered with junk. Hundreds of thousands of pieces of manmade debris are ﬂoating around out there, the detritus of more than 50 years of spaceﬂight. There have been chunks of dead satellites and spent rocket boosters — even a glove that an astronaut dropped in 1965 and a spatula that escaped from a space shuttle in 2006. Because it zips along faster than a speeding bullet, the trash poses an ever-growing threat to the satellites that help the military communicate and gather intelligence and serve the world’s obsession with Google Earth and ondemand movies. Until last year, the Pentagon used what was called a “Space Fence” to track the junk and warn of potential collisions that make owners scramble to move their satellites out of the way. But that system managed to keep up with only a fraction of it all, and it went out of commission last year. Now the Air Force is poised to take a more modern crack at the problem with a new Space Fence. With a contract expected to be awarded in the next few weeks — to either Lockheed Martin or Raytheon — the program is designed to be mankind’s best effort yet at tracking space pollution. The fence isn’t really a fence, but rather a high-frequency radar that is like a ﬂashlight beam in a dark room that illuminates the bits of dust swirling around. All those little bits are
Concentrated Risk in Orbit
Some rocket boosters are now being designed to fall back to Earth more quickly, so that within 25 years, they hit the atmosphere and disintegrate. Even satellite cameras are now designed in a way to prevent space pollution. “In the old days, you’d blow the lens cap away, and some debris would always result from that,” said Dave Baiocchi, a senior engineer at the Rand Corp. “Now they tether This rocket propellant tank landed near Georgetown, Texas, in 1997 relatively intact. the lens cap.” (T WP)

Bullpen Has Been a Relief JEFF ROBERSON (AP)
Nats have been able to count on pitching at the end of games Nationals
The Nationals have had their share of inconsistencies since the 2014 season began, but the bullpen has been reliable the whole time. Washington boasts the thirdbest bullpen ERA in the majors at 2.34, making it easy for manager Matt Williams to call on one of his relievers when he feels the time is right to pull a starter.
The Rams introduce seventh-round pick Michael Sam on Tuesday.

The bullpen didn’t have a great showing last weekend when the A’s swept the Nationals, but it bounced back nicely Monday against Arizona, giving up just three hits and no runs in the ﬁnal 31 ⁄3 innings in a 6-5 comeback win. “Ever since I’ve been around this team, they’ve done such a good job keeping us in games,” second baseman Danny Espinosa said of Washington’s relievers. “It’s no surprise they’ve been able to come in and do what they’ve done. They do a great job for us.” In t he bullpen, only Ross Detwiler has a somewhat concerning ERA at 4.00, and that’s mainly due to the eight earned runs he’s given up in three games. The lefthander has kept runs off of the board in his other eight appearances. The rest of the relievers have ERAs under 4.00, with Tyler Clippard shaking off a rough April to work his down to 2.20. Prior to Tuesday’s game against the Dia-

STATS ENTERING TUESDAY
mondbacks, Clippard’s previous 12 appearances all went without an earned run, with the right-hander delivering 11 strikeouts. Outside of two earned runs and three hits surrendered in a blown save against Oakland on Saturday, closer Rafael Soriano has been nearly perfect. He entered Tuesday’s game with a 1.20 ERA, eight saves and a win in 15 appearances. “Those guys are something special out there,” starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann said. “Every time they come in it seems they are putting up zeros.” Even the young relievers are
getting in on the action. Rookie right-hander Aaron Barrett has been stellar, posting a 0.64 ERA and 18 strikeouts in 14 innings pitched heading into Tuesday’s game. With poor starting pitching and inconsistent hitting affecting the club of late, the bullpen has been one of the main reasons the Nationals have stayed near the top of the NL East standings. “Personally, I’m trying to do my job … and let those guys do their job behind me,” Barrett said. “It’s been fun to watch.”
Michael Sam says St. Louis feels “just like home.” The ﬁrst openly gay player to be drafted by an NFL team was formally introduced by the Rams on Tuesday at a packed news conference with his fellow rookies. The former Missouri defensive end says he feels blessed to be in the league — and to be with a team just two hours from where he played in college. Sam was grouped with ﬁve others taken in the sixth and seventh rounds of Saturday’s draft, including Missouri teammate E.J. Gaines. Unlike your garden-variety, seventh-round pick, Sam also had a solo session. Sam puts on the pads later in the week when the team holds a rookie minicamp, normally a lowkey event also sure to attract outsized attention. (AP)

Sterling’s Remarks Spark New Dispute Clippers owner again slams Magic Johnson in interview on CNN NBA Magic Johnson is sick of talking about Donald Sterling, and the Los Angeles Clippers owner’s estranged wife, Shelley Sterling, said she believes her husband may have dementia. A CNN interview that aired Monday was supposed to be an attempt at rehabilitation for Donald Sterling. Instead he f ac e s f r e sh rebukes after he shifted from apolSterling ogizing for recent racist remarks to slamming Johnson, repeatedly bringing up the ex-NBA star’s HIV status and calling Johnson him an unﬁt role model. “He’s got AIDS!” Sterling said, cutting off CNN’s Anderson Cooper as Cooper attempted to cite Johnson’s accomplishments after Sterling asked, “What has he done, big Magic Johnson, what has he done?” Johnson, who was scheduled to appear on Cooper’s show Tuesday night after Express’ deadline, wrote on Twitter that “I’d rather be talk-

ing about these great NBA Playoffs than Donald Sterling’s interview.” Johnson later tweeted, “After this week, no more Sterling talk.” Sterling’s comments also earned quick condemnation from the league, which was already trying to rid itself of the owner. Commissioner Adam Silver, who gave Sterling a lifetime ban and $2.5 million ﬁne two weeks ago, issued a statement: “While Magic Johnson doesn’t need me to, I feel compelled on behalf of the NBA family to apologize to him that he continues to be dragged into this situation and be degraded by such a malicious and personal attack.” Shelley Sterling watched her husband’s interview and told NBC’s “Today” show afterward that he may be losing his mental faculties. “He’s not the man I know, or I knew,” she said. “I really think, … he has dementia,” she said.

Federer Already Back to Work Roger Federer’s decision to return to tennis a week after the birth of his second set of twins has the full support of his wife, Mirka. And don’t expect his schedule to change much now that he has four kids. When the boys were born earlier than expected, Federer consulted with his wife and team about playing the Italian Open. “And they all said I should quickly come and play here. So I was like, ‘OK, if you don’t want me around I’ll go away,’ ” Federer recounted Tuesday. “That was basically it. Things went well, the boys are healthy. Mirka’s good, too. So it’s a great time in our lives right now.” (AP)

‘He’s Really Happy’ Now California Chrome in a good mood as he preps for Preakness
No matter what scenario he’s thrust into, California Chrome usually finds a way to make the adjustment. Sloppy track? No problem. Slow pace? Got it covered. Fast pace? Piece of cake. The Kentucky Derby winner tested the track at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore for the ﬁrst time Tuesday and took to it like a kid in a sandbox. “He seemed to handle the track just great,” assistant trainer Alan Sherman said. “He just jogged but he was happy. He’s really happy right now. So that’s a good thing.” The Triple Crown hopeful brings a ﬁve-race winning streak into Saturday’s Preakness. Because there is a smaller ﬁeld than the Derby, a shorter distance and several new shooters, this race has the potential to be different. Regardless of how it shapes up, California Chrome should be ready to deal with it.

Basketball For the first time since 1981, the ACC will hold its men’s basketball championship game on a Saturday night next season. The conference announced on Tuesday that it is putting its tournament on a Tuesday-Saturday schedule. Since 1982, the conference has held its tournament semiﬁnals on Saturday afternoon and its champi-
onship game on Sunday afternoon, the same day as Selection Sunday. But after the Big East took its tournament to Fox Sports starting last season, ESPN suddenly had a few major holes to ﬁll on Friday and Saturday night during Championship Week. The conference will hold its tournament semiﬁnals at 7 and 9 p.m. on Friday night, and its ﬁnal at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday night. (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome gets a bath after Tuesday’s workout.
“He’s so tactical,” Sherman said. “If they go slow in front, he’ll take it right to them and push the horses in front of him. If they’re going fast in front, he can just sit off the pace. That’s the good thing about him. He doesn’t have one style of running. He’s pretty pushbutton. If you ask him, he’ll do it.” It’s supposed to rain on Friday, but the weather forecast for Saturday is 70 degrees and partly cloudy. Sherman has no intention of watching The Weather Channel on an hourly basis.
“We’re not scared,” he said. “He trained really good at Churchill on a sloppy track. He actually looked like he liked it a lot.” No two tracks are alike, except perhaps to the undiscerning California Chrome. “He had no issues on the track surface at all,” Sherman said after Tuesday’s practice run. “This horse hasn’t had to take his track with him. He’s won on four different tracks now. So I don’t think that’s an issue. I’m hoping it isn’t anyway.” (AP)
Vonn, Woods Lean on Each Other ANDY LYONS (GETTY IMAGES )
Recovery The power couple of sports is a rehab unit all its own. Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods, however, can take heart in knowing they have each other to lean on during the arduous process. Vonn is working her way back from a second right knee operation that kept her from skiing at the Sochi Olympics. Woods is recovering from surgery to relieve pain from a pinched nerve in his back that caused him to miss the Masters. “Rehab is not a fun thing to do — it’s very monotonous and tedious and a lot of the same exercises over and over and over,” Vonn said by

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are both recovering from injuries right now.
phone from Florida. “But if you’re going through rehab, it’s nice to have a partner to do this with ... someone who relates to your situation and that you can talk to,
rehab and train together.” The one thing that’s off limits? Treating this as a race or tournament. “We have to keep our competitiveness at bay because it’s not about that,” Vonn said. “It’s about doing it right and taking the time it needs to really heal properly.” For Vonn, things are “right on track, if not slightly ahead,” she said. The 2010 Olympic downhill gold medalist hopes to return to snow on Oct. 1, most likely in Europe. If all goes well, she could be racing two months later in Lake Louise, Alberta. “I’m in a good place,” she said. (AP)

More Blue Than Bluesy
A Funny Formula “Neighbors” won the box office last weekend and is the frontrunner for summer’s biggest comedy. Starring Seth Rogen, above left, and Rose Byrne as new parents feuding with Zac Efron’s, above right, frat house next door, “Neighbors” is raunchy and reliably funny. You can almost see director Nicholas Stoller ticking items off the checklist for mainstream comedy success: A Proven Lead: Rogen, in the latest iteration of his schlubby but By Rudi affable stoner type. Now Greenberg he’s a dad, making this a spiritual successor to “Knocked Up.” Unexpected Cameos: The “Workaholics” guys play beer pong, Lisa Kudrow shows up as a college dean hoping to avoid a scandal and “New Girl’s” Jake Johnson pukes into a boot. Get Gross: There are scenes involving dildos and breast pumps that more than earn the film’s R rating. Say Something About Growing Up: “Neighbors” flirts with the real anxieties that come with graduating college or becoming a parent. Cast a Franco: Dave Franco, bro of James, plays Efron’s best bro (and outcharms both). Have Zac Efron Stand Around Shirtless: OK, maybe this one is “Neighbors”-specific, but it is scientifically proven to increase ticket sales. For more of Rudi’s comedy musings, follow him on Twitter: @rudigreenberg.
The Black Keys go introspective on their new album, and it doesn’t always pay off Album Review Who doesn’t like The Black Keys? Until recently, probably the same people who didn’t like Jennifer Lawrence — outliers, purists, grumps. They were the one rock band most everyone could agree on: hipsters and classic rock fans, frat boys and dad rockers. They were the rare mainstream band that made you feel cooler for listening to them. T he Black Keys st a r ted off in an Akron, Ohio, basement with Patrick Carney on drums and Dan Auerbach on guitar and vocals, armed with a dedication to classic ’60s blues-rock thump that bordered on the archival. They didn’t get arena-famous until the release of their 2010 album, “Brothers,” almost a decade into their careers. Over the years, the band has evolved from garage rock primitivists to expert usurpers of just about every conceivable (mostly) American musical form of the late ’60s and early-tomid ’70s, from glam rock to power pop to bubblegum, with everything bolted to a sturdy blues-rock chassis. “Turn Blue,” out now, is probably The Black Keys’ most conﬁdent album, and certainly the most fastidiously made. But with the exception of the remarkable opening and
Patrick Carney, left, and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys don’t show off their talent for strippeddown rock on “Turn Blue.”
“I don’t view us as underdogs anymore. In fact, I view us as more of a target now.” — PATRICK CA RNE Y, DRUMMER FOR THE BLACK KEYS, NOTING TO MOJO MAGAZINE THAT THE BAND’S PUBLIC IMAGE IS CAUSING A BACKLASH AMONG THEIR FANS AND CRITICS
closing tracks, it’s a bit of a slog. It robs Auerbach and Carney of some of the things they’re best at — simple, stripped-down garageblues — in favor of songs that are dark and expansive. Opener “Weight of Love” works a deep funk groove, with an extended guitar solo (previously unthinkable) and a wall of female backing vocals. Clocking in at almost seven minutes, it’s the longest song the band has ever done, and it’s quite a thing. The DNA of the entire album is contained within. The title track, with its emphasis on organs and on Auerbach’s wavery falsetto, is an exercise in mid-’60s Sunset Strip nostalgia; “Bullet in the Brain” is great, galloping, synth-y rock. Many of the album’s songs seem to refer to Auerbach’s recent, very public divorce, but other than a few stray blog-baiting couplets (“The house it burned/ But nothing there was mine,” from the nervy “In Our Prime,” is probably a reference to that time Auerbach’s ex is alleged to have set ﬁre to his house), don’t expect much in the way of romantic insight. “I searched far and wide, hoping I was wrong/ But baby, all the good women are gone,” Auerbach sings on “Gotta Get Away,” the disc’s only full-tilt boogie. “Turn Blue” is otherwise as leisurely as its predecessor, the hooka-minute street racer “El Camino,” was fast. For the ﬁrst time, though, The Black Keys fully inhabit these songs, instead of regarding them from the outside in, as if they are fully realized rock stars at last.

So No ‘Super Magic Mike?’ Channing Tatum will play Gambit in “X-Men: Apocalypse.” The franchise’s producer, Lauren Shuler Donner, confirmed to Total Film at the London premiere of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” that Tatum will play the card-throwing Cajun. Sources also tell The Hollywood Reporter that Tatum’s Gambit will get his own spinoff series. Tatum previously told Total Film in 2013 that he would “love” to play Gambit. (E XPRESS)

Pairing a Name With Her Face Even if you don’t know her name, you’ve definitely seen Judy Greer in something: She’s appeared in more than 80 film, TV and stage roles. She chronicles her career as a go-to supporting player in her quip-filled new book, “I Don’t Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star,” ($26, Random House) in which she dishes on red-carpet disasters, her love of late-night trips to CVS, and life as the perennial on-screen best friend. BETH LUBERECKI (FOR E XPRESS) Are there advantages to the fact that sometimes people can’t quite place you?
I’ve always enjoyed the crazy roles I’ve played. Kitty Sanchez on “Arrested Development” really was a super fun role to play. It was just anything goes with her.
It always comes in handy, definitely. It’s kind of the best of both worlds — I get to have a great career and play great roles and work with great people, and I can go to Target whenever I want.
You called one of the chapters in your book “I Used to Be More Ugly.” Did suffering through some awkward years help you get to where you are today?
What do you like most about the kinds of roles you’ve played over your career?
It made me rely on personality more than people who maybe didn’t have
an awkward phase. I kind of feel like I had more fun by not always worrying about how you look. You haven’t been afraid to look less than glamorous for a role.
I did an independent movie called “Barry Munday” where I didn’t go through hair and makeup at all. That kind of thing is really fun and really liberating. You’ve played a lot of best friends. Who would you want cast as your best friend in a movie?
I never thought about that once in my life! That ’s a really good que s t ion. A nge l i n a Jolie. Angelina Jolie can play my best friend in a movie.
Are there any dream roles you’d love to get?
I’ve never been in an action movie. I would just once like to be chased by somebody; that seems fun. I also think it would be fun to be dropped out of a helicopter into a body of water. What’s up next for you?
I’m super excited about a TV show I’m shooting for FX called “Married,” which premieres in July. I’m also very excited for “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” My husband is a huge fan of the franchise and he begged me to get a role. And the one left was Cornelia, Andy Serkis’ ape wife, so I said, “I’m in, I’ll do it.” You can read a chapter of Judy Greer’s book at vanityfair.com.
ABC Puts Diverse Shows On Its Fall Schedule “Scandal” producer Shonda Rhimes’ “How to Get Away With Murder,” a legal thriller starring Viola Davis, is among 12 new series that will occupy an ABC schedule that’s rich in ethnic diversity.

Talks with Poitier didn’t go far and Sheen ended up with the part. (TWP)

He Can Say ‘KJ’ Stands For ‘Krappy Judgment’ Kylie Jenner “helped” tattoo her initials on Lionel Richie’s 19-year-old son Miles on Friday night in Hollywood, according to TMZ. Jenner put her hands on top of the tattoo artist’s while he worked. As Jenner is under 18, that was probably illegal, TMZ noted. Khloe Kardashian (Jenner’s halfsister) and French Montana were at the tattoo parlor, too. (EXPRESS)
Dolly Parton said on the “Today” show Tuesday that she does not have, as a persistent rumor asserts, tattoos covering nearly her entire body. (That being why she wears long sleeves.) “I do have a few little tattoos, but they were mostly done to cover scars because I’m so fair,” she said. Of her few tattoos, she said, “They’re mostly for my husband.” (EXPRESS)
He ?????. She Kicked. Bey Watched. On Monday, security footage shot during May 5’s Met Gala showed Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z in an elevator while sister Beyonce looked on. The cause of the fight remains unknown. Here’s the latest: Before the fight, Solange, right, argued with designer Rachel Roy. Another guest intervened; Beyonce told that guest to get lost, The New York Post’s Page Six reported.

One Tattoo Says, ‘I Just Like Long Sleeves, You Losers’
WHAT WE KNOW
Kylie giggled. Illegally injecting permanent ink into a good friend sure was fun.

At Least He Wasn’t on the Sidewalk Alec Baldwin was arrested Tuesday morning for riding a bike the wrong way on a Manhattan street and acting belligerently toward police. He was issued a summons for riding a bike the wrong way and for disorderly conduct. After his release, the 56-year-old tweeted that he’d been handcuffed, and that photographers outside his home terrified his daughter. (AP)
The Standard Hotel is investigating the leak, saying it is “shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system.” A body language expert told MailOnline that Beyonce’s lack of reaction during the fight “implies that she has … witnessed this type of behaviour from Solange before.” (AP/E XPRESS)
