In a fantastically bold, angry, funny speech at an HRC event in New Orleans, Clarkson advocated for gay marriage, quoted the great Tennessee Williams, praised Rachel Maddow as brilliant, took Obama to task for his snail's pace advocacy and memorably refashioned the images of prominent anti-gay blowhards like Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh and others into a "Mount Rushmore of Divorce". Here's the complete text of the speech and the video. God, I love this woman. Don't you?
The 1980 hit film Fame which spawned a famous television series starring Debbie Allen has been remade. There's now a full length trailer. I'd embed it for you here but for the studio has been removing the video from any embeddable service sites. Don't they want people to see it? Debbie Allen co-stars and they've loaded the teacher list with recognizable faces: Kelsey Grammar, Megan Mullaly and Bebe Neuwirth are also faculty members.
Reminder #3,593 that nothing is sacred in Hollywood: The Bride of Frankenstein is getting remade.
Green Lantern now comes in rainbow colors. Whaaaat? My guess is there's no extra color in the upcoming movie version.
Stephanie J Block, currently starring in the Jane Fonda role in Broadway 9 to 5 musical once played Liza Minnelli to Hugh Jackman's Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz. She's got a pro gay marriage song on her new album and in a recent interview she discussed making out with the "wonderfully silly" Hugh Jackman. "Our kissing scenes (which I am proud to say were many) would range from passionate to ridiculous. There were shows we would be giving the audience major passion with the downstage part of our lips, but the upstage sides of our lips were having a total conversation."
Hollywood's top comedy mogul Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Funny People) talks about his use of male nudity for laughs in a new Playboy interview.
He thinks it's funny "because a penis looks like a man with a big
nose and large ears." He even describes his own like so "from a certain angle
it kind of looks like Ben Kingsley".
If only it looked like Ryan Reynolds.
