Fresh off his success with Lee Daniels’ The Butler – otherwise known as the movie that will finally nab Oprah that elusive Oscar — Lee Daniels is planning an “interracial love affair action movie” with a gay couple starring Magic Mike‘s Alex Pettyfer.
Speaking with Out, Daniels described the movie as “Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but the two good-looking guys as the action heroes.” However, in what is the most premature spoiler in recent cinematic history, “We don’t find out they’re gay until the end of the movie.”
Daniels has a bit of a mancrush on Pettyfer, who had a brief appearance in The Butler as an ornery, rapey son-of-a-gun plantation owner. Of course many of you will recognize Pettyfer as the vessel of Channing Tatum’s copious twerking-for-dollars knowledge in that seminal film about male strippers, Magic Mike. With one half of the good-looking couple cast, Daniels is now on the search for his partner in crime/life.
“Alex Pettyfer is in it, [but] I have to find the right black guy opposite him. He’s so hot, isn’t he? So hot,” Daniels gushed. “And so aware of his hotness in a way that’s so…I love him to death.”
Well, since you asked, here are a few hot black actors for Daniels to consider so we can get the balls rolling on this movie ASAP:
While not filming Criminal Minds, the perennially hot Mr. Moore is busy being hot — though in all fairness, it’s a full-time job — but we’re sure he could queer his schedule.
LL Cool J
We have a feeling that Uncle L and Alex would be doin’ it and doin’ it and doin’ it well.
Elba. Idris Elba. The rumored future James Bond can cut his superspy teeth while in liplock with Pettyfer.
The talented and versatile actor is already entering into the action arena with a role in the upcoming Avengers movie and — bonus points — he’s no stranger to interracial gay drama:
Mackie’s Pain and Gain co-star is a mountain of man muscle that we’d love to see young Alex attempt to climb.
Of course, it’ll be interesting to see how gay this action flick will be, which will surely impact the stars willing to sign onto the project. But seriously, if the gay twist is at the end, it sounds like pretty much every buddy cop movie ever made if extended two minutes past the credits.
