Former MythBusters Host Grant Imahara Dies at 49

Former MythBusters and White Rabbit Project host Grant Imahara has died, aged 49. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Imahara died suddenly after a brain aneurysm.

Former Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage has expressed via Twitter he’s at a loss over the news.

“I’ve been part of two big families with Grant Imahara over the last 22 years,” wrote Savage. “Grant was a truly brilliant engineer, artist and performer, but also just such a generous, easygoing, and gentle person. Working with Grant was so much fun. I’ll miss my friend.”

Imahara’s Mythbusters and White Rabbit Project co-host Kari Byron has also responded, posting a picture of herself alongside Imahara and fellow Mythbusters alum Tory Belleci.

Imahara was best-known for his work on MythBusters, which he joined in 2005 and appeared in over 200 episodes. Imahara left the show in 2014 alongside his on-screen “Build Team” partners Byron and Belleci and the trio went on to host the shortlived Netflix Original Series White Rabbit Project in 2016.

Prior to his work on MythBusters Imahara spent nearly a decade working in visual effects for Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light and Magic division. Imahara worked as a model maker on a host of high-profile films, including The Lost World, Terminator 3, Galaxy Quest, and all three films in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

Grant Gustin, Caity Lotz and More Stars Join The Plague Nerdalogues

Back in May, writer-producer Marc Bernardin (Castle Rock, Star Trek: Picard) launched The Plague Nerdalogues, a charitable initiative featuring stars from across the genre space self-taping some of the most iconic monologues from film and TV history, all to raise funds for No Kid Hungry.

The video series has raised over $ 16,000 to date, spotlighting performances from Star Trek legend Jonathan Frakes (channeling his best Captain Kirk), Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer (taking on the role of Bill from Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill), and Krypton star Cameron Cuffe (fittingly tackling Marlon Brando’s Jor-El monologue from Superman), and was initially designed as a way to raise money and bring people together during the COVID-19 pandemic. The series was always intended to expand with new actors contributing additional monologues in its second wave, but in the wake of the protests against racial injustice that have swept the globe following George Floyd’s death, Bernardin was compelled to direct funds for the next round of “Nerdalogues” to Black Lives Matter.

“It became clear to me, as both an African American and a human being, that if we could raise money for a cause that’s affected so many since they were born, then we should,” said Bernardin in a statement. “We’ve all wanted to do something. We’re all moved to action. And when I mentioned to the actors who’d already contributed their monologues, not a one raised an objection. We all stand together. Nerds and strong. And even though the ‘plague’ in the title initially referred to COVID-19, to apply it to systemic racism — America’s first plague — felt apt.”

Watch the trailer for a preview of some of the stars participating in The Plague Nerdalogues: The Second Wave:

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/06/12/the-plague-nerdalogues-the-second-wave-cast-reveal”]

IGN can exclusively reveal the stars participating in The Plague Nerdalogues: The Second Wave, debuting June 12, including Bernardin’s Fatman Beyond co-host, director Kevin Smith, The Flash’s Grant Gustin, Will Forte (Last Man on Earth), Yvette Nicole Brown (Community), David Ramsey (Arrow), Malcolm Barrett (Timeless), Christina Ochoa (Animal Kingdom), David Harewood (Supergirl), Caity Lotz (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), Gary Anthony Williams (Solar Opposites), Jordan Calloway (Black Lightning), Tracie Thoms (9-1-1), Eugene Byrd (Bones), Jay Pharoah (Saturday Night Live), Jesse Rath (Supergirl), Chris Lee (Legacies), Rahul Kohli (iZombie), Parisa Fitz-Henley (Luke Cage), Ahmed Best (Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge), Brittany Curran (The Magicians), Olivia Swann (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), Alaina Huffman (The 100), Drew Powell (Gotham), Michael Trucco (Battlestar Galactica), Dani Fernandez (Ralph Breaks the Internet), Camrus Johnson (Batwoman), Affion Crockett (Pixels) Jessie Graff (American Ninja Warrior), Ashley A. Williams (Double Cross), Annika Noelle (The Bold and the Beautiful), and Casey McKinnon (The Tragedy of JFK).

To watch the monologues, you can visit theplaguenerdalogues.com and donate to Black Lives Matter to gain access to the full library of videos, which will expand over time as more monologues are submitted.

“When the moment and the movement yields some real concrete change, then this will have served its purpose and these videos will be made public,” added Bernardin. “Until then, I hope our collective love for both the geek world and the real world can do a little good.”

The Plague Monologues series is produced and curated by Bernardin, with web design and video editorial provided by Hannibal Tabu, and additional contributions from writer-producers Deric A. Hughes (Arrow) and Lamont Magee (Black Lightning).

The first wave of monologues also included performances from Phil Lamarr (Justice League), David Dastmalchian (Ant-Man), Azita Ghanizada (Elementary), Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys), Rob Benedict (Supernatural), Yuri Lowenthal (Spider-Man), Ruth Connell (Supernatural), Rekha Sharma (Battlestar Galactica), Tiffany Smith (Masters of the Universe: Revelation), Damion Poitier (The Flash), Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica), Hal Lublin (The Thrilling Adventure Hour), David Blue (Stargate: Universe), and Clarke Wolfe (Satanic Panic).

L.A. Artist Alexandra Grant Designs ‘Love’ Necklaces For Charity

Due to the coronavirus, Los Angeles artist Alexandra Grant had to cancel last month’s launch of her latest GrantLove Project prints and collectibles, originally scheduled to bow at an evening party at the Oscar de la Renta boutique on Melrose Place. But that didn’t stop her from rolling out the arts benefit charity collection online, including her new “Love” necklaces, now available just in time for Mother’s Day.
“After 10 years of being out of print with the last necklace edition, it was important to have a refreshed design that reflects my current aesthetic sense,” said Grant of the jewelry, which plays off her work examining text and language through painting and other media. The delicate necklace designs with bold lettering are available in sterling silver for $ 175 and 18-karat gold for $ 775.
Profits from the necklaces will benefit Project Angel Food, the Heart of Los Angeles and Visual Arts Los Angeles, a collaboration for women-identified artists with the Orange County Museum of Art, where Grant was due to have her first solo exhibition open this month before COVID-19 postponed it indefinitely.
Grant started the GrantLove Project in 2009 and through it, has raised more than $ 125,000 for charities. A longtime artist and

Martin Grant Pre-Fall 2020

Having tinkered in recent years with the timing of his collections and the introduction of men’s wear, Martin Grant is switching gears again, showing only archival looks for his pre-fall collection.
“I’ve gone complete slow fashion. As it’s getting faster and faster, I’ve decided to do the complete opposite,” he explained.
A coat from 1996 is the oldest design culled from Grant’s archives, but most of the patterns he revived are from the last dozen years, such as a red coat with a sculptural shawl collar from 2008. Some of the models will only be available in limited editions of 10 to 30.
The collection also includes dresses, blouses and skirts, as well as new versions of the beige trench famously worn by Meghan Markle. Grant said he plans to offer a selection of vintage looks as part of his collections going forward, an approach that chimes with his pragmatic approach to wardrobe-building.
“It hopefully proves the point that something that is timeless, why not keep going with it, why not bring it back? It still looks fresh,” he said.

Martin Grant RTW Spring 2020

“It’s a little bit ‘workwear meets Bubblegum Barbie,’” said Martin Grant, by way of introducing his spring collection. That’s some statement, coming from a designer famous for dressing style icons like Cate Blanchett and Meghan Markle.
Grant was referring specifically to a blue belted shirtdress with safari pockets that he’d paired with pink heels, but there were plenty of other playful options in his spring collection: a sexy pink halterneck minidress; cross-back bra tops, and a navy linen zip-front, hourglass bustier dress.
They tipped his trademark masculine-feminine dynamic into flirtier territory. Even the suits had a softer edge this season, courtesy of a slightly Eighties-feeling curved, cropped pant shape. Grant emphasized the waist by belting everything from oversize shirts to a flowing one-shouldered pink taffeta evening gown.
He also used the taffeta for a puff-sleeved shirt, noting that the fabric was made by a French company that historically supplied haute couture houses. “It’s one of the first pinks that I used when I moved to Paris, and it’s called ‘Paris.’ I like also that I can go back to a house that I used 15 years ago and have that exact color,” he mused.
Bubblegum Barbie just got a couture makeover.
