Roland Emmerich’s upcoming dramatization of the 1969 gay rights breakthrough Stonewall has found its leading man, and it turns out that he’s great in the saddle.
According to Deadline, War Horse star and twink-tastic cutie Jeremy Irvine will be playing the lead in Stonewall, which is set to begin filming soon in New York City.
Irvine may be unfamiliar to you, but is no stranger to the A-List, as he was directed by Steven Spielberg in War Horse and is featured in multiple upcoming projects with the likes of Nicole Kidman, Michael Douglas and Colin Firth.
As far as we can tell, this is his first Big Gay Role. If the movie is done as well as the subject deserves, it could catapult him to stardom and Oscar glory with other (presumably) straight actors who played gay.
Now that you know who he is, close your eyes and imagine how hot the gay sex scenes could be, and pray that Roland Emmerich has the vision to bring them to life.
