Adam Shankman is heading to the 1960s once again. The 49-year-old director first visited that decade for the musical Hairspray. This time, his time travels take a more serious turn.

Hollywood Reporter reports HBO picked up a script titled Open City from Shankman and writer David Kajganich about gay rights during the 1960s cultural revolution. With Looking, Behind the Candelabra and The Normal Heart under the network’s belt already, HBO is quickly becoming the unofficial gay network.

Ronnie Lorenzo, one of the original owners of the Stonewall Inn, will serve as a consulting producer. As any self-respecting gay individual knows, the Stonewall Riots in 1969 is considered the birth of the gay rights movement in the United States.

laverne-cox-time-magazine

When TIME’s recent annual list of the 100 most influential people failed to include Laverne Cox despite having considerable support on the publication’s people reader’s poll, it immediately prompted a backlash. Not surprisingly, a social media campaign emerged using the hashtag #whereisLaverneCox. Fast forward a couple of months later and Cox receives her own solo cover and on her birthday to boot. Happy Birthday guuuuurrrrl.

The Orange Is The New Black actress is front and center for the publication’s “The Transgender Tipping Point” piece. The cover story “examines the radical rise in awareness of transgender Americans and how this movement is reshaping our definitions of gender.” In the accompanying interview, Laverne talks about her childhood suicide attempt and how she feels people’s attitudes toward the transgender community have changed.

On When She First Felt She Might Be Transgendered

“I tell this story about third grade. My third grade teacher called my mom and said ‘Your son is going to end up in New Orleans wearing a dress.’ Up until that point I just thought that I was a girl and that there was no difference between girls and boys. I think in my imagination I thought that I would hit puberty and I would start turning into a girl.”

yanis-marshall-britains-got-talent

I first stumbled upon Yanis Marshall last year when he posted a video of himself with a couple of friends dancing to Spice Girls on Parisian streets. Since then he’s appeared everywhere including So You Think You Can Dance Ukraine. Currently he’s competing on Britain’s Got Talent with his dance troupe consisting of Arnaud and Mehdi.

The trio just reached the finals all thanks to a wicked routine to a medley of campy gay favorites including “Let’s Have a Kiki,” “Bad Romance,” “Bad Girl,” “Proud Mary” and “Supermodel (Of The World).” In other words, every sassy diva. Check out their utterly sick dance moves below. My favorite part takes place on the conveyor belt.

For someone who loves lady parts, Ellen DeGeneres sure has an obsession with male strippers. Is she a secret homosexual ;)

No matter what occasion ranging from birthdays to engagements, the daytime talk show host’s go-to gift for her guests are chiseled oiled up men. Where do I sign up? The latest recipient was Leah Remini. The former King of Queens actress really got into it, go as far as handling the merchandise. Lucky bitch ;) Check out the video below.

Charlie Cox Is The New Daredevil

In: Donovan, TV Shows
daredevil-netflix

Move over Ben Affleck. Someone else is donning Matt Murdock’s signature red horns. Charlie Cox has reportedly snagged the titular role in Marvel’s upcoming live-action series, Daredevil, airing on Netflix. Cox is an English actor known best for his starring role in Stardust opposite Claire Danes and Michelle Pfeiffer. Recently, the 31-year-old actor appeared on the third season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.

The on-demand service has placed an initial order of 13 episodes. Spartacus creator Steven S. DeKnight steps in as showrunner after Drew Goddard stepped down over the weekend. Though Goddard remains as a consultant, he’ll spend the majority of this time on Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man spinoff, Sinister Six.

Daredevil is one of four new superhero series ordered by Netflix. The others being Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. The four characters will band together in a miniseries airing also on Netflix titled The Defenders.

With ABC also ordering the Captain America spinoff Agent Carter for midseason, along with renewing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel is on its way to conquering the small screen as it did the silver one. Check out photos of Cox below.

Well that didn’t take very long. Just days after premiering on HBO, The Normal Heart has already racked up a few nominations.

the-normal-heart-ratings

Due to the Memorial Day long weekend, the Nielsen ratings for The Normal Heart were delayed. At long last, the numbers are in.

Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of The Normal Heart netted just under one million viewers for its 9pm airing and scored an additional 434,000 eyeballs for the 11:15 showing. Overall, the movie garnered 1.4 million viewers across its two Sunday airings. The premiere ranks as the fifth most-watched movie of the 17 movies HBO has aired since 2010. Last Memorial Day, the network aired Behind The Candelabra which generated 2.35 million viewers.

As I previously wrote, I enjoyed it despite at times being uncomfortable to watch. I thought it was by far Taylor Kitsch’s best work to date, adding both Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer delivered solid performances with the former deserving an Emmy nod. My only gripe with regards to the cast was Julia Roberts. I felt she was extremely miscast and felt watching her scenes felt like Erin Brokovich the wheelchair version. Did you watch it? Are you surprised by the ratings? Share your thoughts below.

true-detective-tca-nominations

The TV awards season is officially underway with the 2014 Television Critics Association Awards nominations. True Detective scored the most nods with four besting Breaking Bad by one.

The HBO show is competing in Outstanding Achievement in Movies, Miniseries and Specials, Program of the Year and Outstanding New Program. It also racked up an acting nod for Matthew McConaughey. Looks like the McConaissance isn’t ending anytime soon. Expect True Detective to earn more love at the upcoming awards shows especially the Emmys. The noir-soaked drama has received massive acclaim throughout its run.

One of the more interesting categories at the TCAs is the Heritage Award. Classic shows are honored for having a major cultural or social impact. This year’s nominees are Lost, Twin Peaks, Saturday Night Live, South Park and Star Trek. As much as I love Lost, I think the rightful winner here is SNL. Don’t you agree? Check out the rest of the nominations below.
