Darren Criss is the latest actor to step into high heels to play the East German transgender singer in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. The former Glee star definitely has some big shoes to fill. He takes over John Cameron Mitchell who originated the role in the original production. And then there’s Neil Patrick Harris who won a Tony award.
Based on the official promotional artwork, the 28-year-old actor is off to a good start. He can definitely rock the shimmery blue eye shadow. But how does he compare with his predecessors including Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall and the aforementioned Harris?
Darren begins his run on April 29 until July. Check out all the promo pictures below and weigh in afterward. Criss definitely looks the most feminine of the bunch. With a weave, he can almost pass as a girl IMHO.
Patti Solis Doyle was the first campaign manager of the former first lady’s 2008 presidential run. This time around, Hillary Clinton has tapped 35-year-old political director, Robby Mook to navigate her through the 2016 Presidential race. He becomes the first openly gay person to serve as the manager of a major presidential campaign.
“Robby understands modern campaigns, the value of data and technology,” Obama adviser David Plouffe told Bloomberg in 2013. “He beat us three times; his footprint was on our back. He did the best job of anyone over there.”
So I have to ask: how bad ARE the asses of guys in England??
Honestly, what passes for hot over there? I have to assume by the zoom ins on what I have to say are the flattest butts I’ve ever seen that squats aren’t exactly a part of a Brit’s daily routine. Still, the accents are pretty sexy so don’t give up quite yet. Set up as Logo’s sister show to Cucumber that follow the story of one older gay man, Banana instead focuses on the youth of gay Manchester and peeks into the often less than glamourous but still full of anal lives of a much younger demographic. This is definitely a recommend to the younger generation looking to see how British gay life compares. Spoiler alert: other than the bad asses and average builds, our trials are pretty universal.
Well, I’m never growing old. Or getting into a relationship apparently.
No one does drama quite like the Brits: the humour is so dry it’s depressing. One of Logo’s newest TV series, Cucumber, follows the life of a 50-something gay protagonist in Manchester as he starts life anew after a pretty dramatic break up with his boyfriend of 9 years. Filmed alongside its “sister show”, Banana, Cucumber is a sometimes sad, sometimes funny look at what it means to be an older man in our gay community. I know I sound like I’m ragging a bit on the show- but that’s not it at all- rather, I want to make it clear that what you’re in store for with this one takes a certain type of temperament. If you’re looking for Queer as Folk with daddies, this ISN’T that: it’s… well, really, it’s its own type of show and it is certainly worth the look.
With only one semester of German under my belt, my passing knowledge of the language isn’t enough for me to understand what the narrator is saying in this commercial.
In the end, it doesn’t matter. The model’s moisturizing routine speaks for itself. It’s 46 seconds of a hot man rubbing Aldo Vandini products all over his chiseled naked body.
It’s the sexiest lotion advert I’ve ever seen. Those Europeans have the best commercials and the most lenient standards for television. #GodBless!!! Check it out below.
This week I’m featuring an inspiring CrossFit athlete named Sam Dancer. I saw him compete at the CrossFit Games in Carson, CA last year, but really didn’t know much about his story until this week when I stumbled upon the trailer for a documentary about him called “The Power Of Love“.
Dancer is from Quincy, Illinois where he now runs a gym called CrossFit Q Town with his wife Jennie. Dancer is breaking stereotypes with something as little as painting his nails and not being afraid to express himself through colour. He coaches and inspires children and adults to be the best they can be and gives them the strength to find a confidence they never thought possible. The trailer for this documentary is actually quite touching and he seems like he is just as attractive on the inside (if not more) as he is on the outside. “There’s nothing socially acceptable about a man painting his nails, especially here in Quincy, Illinois… I started to figure out what love was, and that it was this cure all for everything, and I wanted to share that. And this ended up being the perfect platform for that.”
Check out his pictures and videos below. Keep up the good work, Sam!
While channel surfing one day, I stumbled upon this little gem on MTV. Naturally, I stopped and watched for a bit to enjoy the plethora of buff male specimens. I had no idea what was going on but I was hooked.
Ex on the Beach is a British reality show that features eight single men and women enjoying a summer holiday in paradise while looking for love. Things become less than ideal when some of their exes show up to shake things up. Apparently, the show is a hit and two seasons have aired.
For all you reality junkies, you might recognize a few faces since some of them are recycled from other reality guilty pleasures like Geordie Shore and Celebrity Big Brother.
Check out some of my favorite guys below to hit the beach for MTV UK. Be sure to weigh in on which ones are your favorites afterwards. The juicy one above is named Jack Lomax in case you feel like voting for him.
As most of you know, Bruce Jenner is transitioning into a woman. The 65-year-old former Olympian has kept mum about the process until now. He sits down for the first time to talk about the journey with Diane Sawyer. Naturally, ABC is going to promote the sh*t out of this.
Reportedly, Bruce will talk about the effects his decision has had on his famous family. You know those Kardashian folks ;) While he won’t appear as a female on camera, he’ll re-introduce himself as his new self.
The first promo doesn’t reveal too much yet with only the back of Jenner shown. It’s all about the melodramatic voiceover. Check it out below. The interview airs on Friday, April 24 at 9/8c on ABC.
