'Girls' Andrew Rannells Hopes Season 4 Involves Sex With Hugh Jackman

While speaking with E! Entertainment correspondent Marc Malkin, “real-life gay” actor Andrew Rannells revealed that his character Elijah will appear in season four of HBO's Girls and hinted at a possible upcoming sex scene.

Jackman“I might be not dressed in it,” Rannells coyly said. “I volunteered myself for nakedness. I feel with, like, Looking on the air, I was like ‘I gotta represent with some gay sex on the show.’ I’m willing!”

But when asked who he’d prefer as Elijah’s sex partner, Rannells answered, “Hugh Jackman. Always and forever, Hugh Jackman.” But Rannells might not realize that Jackman role plays as Wolverine in the sheets — bring an adamantium breastplate to the bedroom, Elijah.

Jackman, of course, has been long beleaguered by gay rumors ) which his wife addresses every few years. Of course, that’s what happens in America when you make your career playing “The Boy From Oz.”

NY Mag's Vulture caught up with Andrew Rannells at the Cinema Society screening this week and asked him if he's ever, like his gay character Elijah will in Girls, experimented with a woman.

Said Rannells:

I personally have never had sex with a woman. I'm more of what you call gold-star gay. I'm purebred. So I knew it wasn't my thing, so I was like, Why do that? So I didn't.

Vulture seemed startled by the word 'purebred'. Added Rannells:

In my circle of friends, it's used. Like, "Andrew, he's a purebred." Yeah...I feel like I'm in the minority for a lot of gay men. Most of my friends have tried [having sex with a woman] at some point....Although, I have a lot of friends who, actually, after they've realized they're gay, they feel empowered in a way that they do some things that they didn't think they would do, like explore some things because they're a little more comfortable with who they are.

Anybody have any other names for 'purebred' or 'gold-star' gay?

HBO Orders Comedy Pilot About Gay Pals In San Francisco

HBOHBO, the pay-cable channel that brings us Girls, Boardwalk Empire and LGBT-favorite True Blood, announced yesterday that it has ordered a pilot about the lives of three gay friends living in San Francisco.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

The untitled project hails from Brothers and Sisters' [showrunner] David Marshall Grant and Bored to Death's Sarah Condon and revolves around the thirtysomething trio also grappling with the complexities of life and the modern gay experience.

Michael Lannan (Remember Me) penned the script, which Grant supervised. Andrew Haigh will helm the pilot, which is based on Lannan's feature script Lorimer.

Grant of course had huge success with the iconic series thirtysomething, which broke ground by having two men appear in bed together, so this narrative is probably in good hands. But with news of this project, one can't help but wonder whatever happened to HBO's plan to turn gay-themed movie The Kids Are All Right into an hour-long series.
