Brandon Routh: Gay Relationships Just as Bitchy as Straight Ones


Superman and the Mac Guy get it on in Kevin Smith’s new film.

Newsweek asked Zack and Miri Make a Porno director Smith how he got Brandon Routh to play a gay porn star in the film.

But Routh doesn’t play one. He lays one. Replied Smith: “He’s the boyfriend of a gay porn star. That’s a key difference. I asked him, ‘Do you have some sort of morals clause in your contract, being that you play Superman?’ And he said, ‘What is this, 1940?'”

Routh talked about playing Long’s gay lover at the film’s premiere: “All my scenes were very tame playing with Justin but you know relationships are relationships no matter who they’re between. You fight, you bicker and it’s all the same.”

Justin looks a bit like Brandon’s mini-me.
