When oh when will the entertainment industry use actual gay actors playing gay characters?It pi**s me off that they use str8 (well, so-called str8) actors for these parts! What’s the problem? I read a posting to one of these Blind gossip columns, from a casting director (20 years) that it has been in his experience in casting that about 80 to 90% of these hunks who are actors, are gay! I know that sounds over the top but he was adding his two cents to a previous comment that claimed 70% of the male actors are gay! As I mentioned, the BG columns seem to validate these percentages in that they have column after column hint that some of the b iggest names (B=-A+) in film, are gay! So,. again, what’s the problem? O.K., I know what it is (closet), but many twinks are trying to be actors and would give their right tit to get a part in a gay theme movie! Are these gay producers/directors afraid of the str8 fan base by boycotting these films with actual gay actors? Me thinks this is the case. (MONEY!,MONEY!)
I wish he’d stalk me.
@pscheck2: I’m a little confused by your post; you’re mad that gay characters aren’t being played by gay actors, but the (unofficial) statistics you cite seem to indicate that the vast majority of the time they probably are.
1. I admit I have a Justin-Long-tying-me-down-and-fucking-me-fantasy.
2. Why does it matter that str8 actors play a gay character? Should gay actors only play gay characters?
I have SUCH an age-inappropriate crush on Justin Long.
There. I said it.
