Gay Rugby Icon Ian Roberts in Superman Returns


Kudos to Bryan Singer for offering gay rugby icon-turned actor Ian Roberts a Hollywood break, though his casting in Superman Returns does little to quash the movie's gay vibe.

He'll head to L.A. for the movie's June 21 premiere: "I'm just getting so excited about the trip [to LA] now, it's going to be the absolute highlight of my career."


And just for the record, here's one of the most well-known pin-ups of the hunky Ian Roberts.
