The countdown to HBO’s highly-anticipated Liberace biopic is in the final stretch. In a couple of weeks, we finally get to discover the man behind the sequins. Since this is based on the memoir written by Liberace’s former lover Scott Thorson, it’s also about the man “behind the man” behind the sequins (literally and figuratively *wink*).
If that wasn’t enough usage of the word “behind”, the network recently debuted a brand new featurette giving a behind the scenes look at Behind The Candelabra. That’s a whole lot of behinds. If you’re fascinated by the filmmaking process, you’ll appreciate the videos.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the HBO biopic will delve into the life of the flamboyant pianist played by Michael Douglas and the secret affair he had with Thorson (Matt Damon). The film has been selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival taking place later this month. Check out the videos below.
What an 180 degree turn. Just the other day, Matt Damon appeared as Liberace’s boy toy in HBO’s upcoming fabulously gay biopic. Now, he’s half man, half cyborg battling Jodie Foster. Talk about range ;)
The first trailer for Elysium just dropped. The year is 2159 and the world is separated into two classes. The wealthy live on Elysium- a luxurious space station where there is no poverty, disease or war. Meanwhile, the less privileged are stuck in slums on Earth. Enter Matt Damon’s character who plans on infiltrating Elysium to access their medical care and breakdown the barrier between the two classes. The only thing that stands in his way is Jodie Foster and her army of robots.
Elysium comes from the brainchild of Neill Blomkamp. Fans of his Oscar-nominated District 9 have been eagerly anticipating his next project. Judging on the trailer, it looks like the wait was worth it. It has the special effects of a typical summer movie, but also feels like it has a bit of substance. I can’t wait. Elysium hits theaters on August 9, 2013. Check out the trailer below.
After a couple of teasers, HBO finally releases a full-length trailer for its upcoming Liberace biopic, Behind The Candelabra. As expected, it’s a whole lot of glitter, glamor and gayness. I can’t wait to see it.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh (Magic Mike), the HBO film is based on a 1988 memoir, Behind The Candelabra: My Life With Liberace written by Scott Thorson. Matt Damon plays him in the TV movie. It follows his secretive five-year relationship with flamboyant singer Liberace (Michael Douglas). The two met through an introduction by Hollywood film producer Ray Arnett. Liberace then hires Thorson as his companion. ”Why would a grown man want to adopt another grown man?” says someone to Damon in the video.
In the brand new trailer, we see Damon and Douglas fight and get intimate through their tumultuous time together. Douglas showers his young lover with fancy cars, fancier capes and anything money can buy. He even brings him to a plastic surgeon to cosmetically alter him to resemble a younger version of Liberace. The film also stars Dan Aykroyd, Scott Bakula, Debbie Reynolds and Rob Lowe. It premieres on the network on May 26 at 9pm. Watch the trailer below.
There’s no denying I’m a sucker for a biopic. Especially one that’s this glitzy, glamorous and gay. With Liberace as the subject of the film and Matt Damon and Michael Douglas starring, this upcoming HBO film is on everyone’s radar. To label the buzz deafening would be a huge understatement. Everyone and their dog is waiting for it.
Behind The Candelabra is based on Scott Thorson’s 1988 memoir about Liberace’s over-the-top world of palatial houses, extravagant clothes, and secret affairs. Thorson was Liberace’s live-in lover of five years. Matt Damon tackles the role in the adaptation. Entertainment Weekly gives a first look at the highly-anticipated project directed by Steven Soderbergh (Magic Mike). Expect plenty of butt shots.
In the issue, both Douglas who plays the titular character and Damon share their experience making the film. Michael talks about getting advice from Liberace’s friends including Debbie Reynolds on how to play the singer perfectly. On his part, Matt talks about his multiple butt tan spraying sessions and filming sex scenes. Check out a few quotes along with the first teaser trailer below.
As promised, after The Oscars last night Jimmy Kimmel debuted his Movie: The Movie: 2V trailer and in case you missed it, we’ve got it for you to check out below. The hilarious movie parody video features 21 celebrities and tells the epic story of a world threatened by sexy vampires, sexy zombies, sexy mummies, and sexy leprechauns.
The cast includes: Rachel Weisz, Armie Hammer, Topher Grace, Jessica Chastain, Jude Law, Gerard Butler, Bryan Cranston, John Krasinski, Oprah Winfrey, Bradley Cooper, Kerry Washington, Guillermo Rodriguez, Jason Schwartzman, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, Bruno Mars, Amanda Seyfried, Channing Tatum, Samuel L. Jackson, Wolf Blitzer, and even Matt Damon.
Kimmel plays the man who leads the charge of people who fight to stop the Sexpocalypse. Some of my favorite moments include when Kimmel calls Oprah (who plays the president) and she hangs up on him, when Matt Damon is told to pretend he’s eating a big sandwich but they really just want him to look like he’s giving head, and when Kimmel shouts, “Release the Tatum!” and a giant Channing Tatum comes out that fights the sexy monsters by thrusting from his manhood. Watch the epic and hilarious video below.
Matt Damon co-founded Water.org back in 2009, an organization that aims to provide access to safe water and sanitation in African, South Asian and Central American communities. With that said, in this funny new PSA video, he’s taking some drastic measure.
In his awkward and funny press conference, Damon explains “For $25, you can give somebody clean water for life.” He asks an audience member, “I mean sir, how much is the bottle of water you’re drinking?” The man responds, “I shoplifted this.” Damon goes on to pledge, “And so in protest of this global tragedy, until this issue is resolved, until everyone has access to clean water and sanitation, I will not go to the bathroom… Say no to toilets.”
The audience’s reaction is hilarious. One of the reporters asks Damon, “Are we calling this ‘One Matt Damon, No Cup’?” LOL! Watch the funny video below.
For the longest time, Jimmy Kimmel would always joke on his show that he ran out of time and thus had no time for Matt Damon to appear on the show. Ahead of the actor’s first full appearance on the show tonight, Damon got his revenge on Kimmel in a hilarious and creepy video.
We first see a montage of the, “We ran out of time. Sorry, Matt Damon” clips from his show and then start to hear a creepy Damon laugh. He then talks to the camera and says, “That’s pretty funny. But tonight, tonight you didn’t run out of time for me did ya, Jimmy?”
We then see Jimmy Kimmel all tied up in the background in a room decorated with headlines relating to Kimmel not making time for Damon. Matt Damon’s first full appearance on Kimmel airs tonight! I’m sure it’ll be a good one. Watch the video below!
The sexy Matt Damon joined The Today Show host Matt Lauer for their “Social Q’s” viewer mail segment this morning where they tackled “How To Handle Awkward Holiday Situations.” Coincidentally, yesterday I wrote about Juicy Couture’s Dos & Don’ts for the holiday season as well.
The viewer question in today’s segment read, “My girlfriend is an excellent cook and really defensive. When she cooks, she tosses the salad with her hands without washing them and tastes everything with her fingers. It makes me feel a little sick. Can I fix this?” Well, Damon couldn’t resist being set up for a perfect joke. “That’s not what they told me about tossing salad,” he joked. Personally, I’m curious to know how exactly how much Damon knows about tossing the salad – wink ;)
So just to be clear in case you aren’t familiar with the phrase “tossing the salad” when it comes to bedroom slang… it’s oral-anal sex, otherwise referred to as Anilingus. I just wanted to make that clear so were were on the same page with how naughty (and funny) it was for Damon to say that on live television. Watch the “cheeky” clip below.
