Many of you may be familiar with Drew Droege's series of shorts that feature the comedian as Chloe Sevigny, dishing about her most recent obsessions.
However, it's recently come to my attention that Droege has another web series out there on the interwebs, "Hollywood Acting Studio." The series follows Droege as Professor Lafrange, a washed-up Hollywood hopeful now giving acting lessons at a California community college. His syllabus? "Students learn the pillars of the craft, such as auditioning, green-screen acting, crying, and more."
The full series is available online.
The series also features the dishy Daniel Vincent Gordh (pictured right).

With Australia's High Court deciding to postpone its ruling on the legality of the Australian Capitol Territory's same-sex marriage law, gay couples in Canberra have already begun tying the knot this weekend. In an emotional ceremony at midnight on Saturday, Alan Wright (left) and Joel Player (middle) became the first same-sex couple to say 'I do.' The Canberra Times reports:
Mr Wright said the decision to get married in the middle of the night was made not for a grab at history, but to fulfill the words of their celebrant Sharyn Gunn [pictured above right] - who performed the couple's commitment ceremony.
"She said the minute it becomes legal, you two are going to be the first I marry," he said.
Mr Player, 30, said he viewed each of the couples making their vows under the ACT's landmark marriage equality law this weekend as the first, but the couple had embraced the prominence of being "12.01" to promote the message of acceptance.
"We're doing it at midnight because that's what we want to do...but at the same time we sort of took it in our stride to use it as a bit of marriage equality shining at the same time, and helping get the voice out there that we are no different," he said.
"It's a bloody giant leap forward for Australia."

WATCH: Debut Trailer for 'Out in the Line-up' - A New Kickstarter Doc About Homosexuality in Surfing
With the number of athletes coming out in other sports steadily increasing, you might be surprised with the fact that there has yet to be an openly gay surfer on the professional tour. A new Kickstarter-funded documentary, OUT in the line-up, is looking to uncover this long-standing taboo of homosexuality in surfing.
Synopsis via the film's website:
OUT in the line-up follows the story of two gay surfers who unite to bring the issue out into the open. Together they embark on a global journey to hear the perspectives of people from all corners of the surfing community including former world champion Cori Schumacher, big wave rider Keala Kennelly and former US Congressman Barney Frank. As their journey unfolds, they uncover a culture of fear, secrecy and exclusion but are also inspired to affect change by connecting people, provoking discussion and looking to surfing's grassroots values of freedom of spirit and love for the ocean.
The film is currently in the final stages of production and is looking to raise the funds needed to launch on the international festival circuit in early 2014.
Check out the debut trailer, AFTER THE JUMP...

The phrase "gay icon" gets tossed around a lot, but what does that really mean? Welcome to Gay Iconography, a new feature where we present a proposed iconic figure or character and then ask you to weigh in with your thoughts. So far we've discussed Roseanne, Rickie Vasquez, Judy Garland and Donna Summer. While passionate comments poured in for and against each figure's iconic status, one recurring theme was the importance of gay icons that don't fit the typical "diva" mold, such as this week's selection.
Though far from a universal experience, there are few places more anxiety-inducing for young gay people than the gym class locker room. Athletics have a complicated association with homophobia that plays out on and off the field. That's started to change, as more athletes come out, and more people rally to combat the institutionalized hate-speech commonly found in athletics.
One of the faces at the forefront of this shift is Ben Cohen. Whether you know him from his 2003 Rugby World Cup win, his activism to end bullying or just his handsome, handsome face, he's risen to prominence as a loud, proud LGBT ally.
