This just in: Christian Slater is a very competitive person. Especially when it comes to shooting gay sex scenes in movies.
While speaking at a Q&A after the premiere of King Cobra over the weekend, 47-year-old Slater spoke candidly about the film’s many, many, many gay sex scenes and how he didn’t want James Franco to get all the attention. So he improvised a scene of his own.

“James was going to be doing the lion’s share of the sexual aspects [of the film] and then I got competitive,” Slater said. “We even improv’d some stuff. OK, I’ll stop–but, yeah, great direction!”
That when director Justin Kelly chimed in to add that Slater and actor Garrett Clayton had one spontaneous moment when “[Christian] pushes him up against the closet door… That was not written or planned. That [was] Christian saying, ‘Where’s my gay sex scene?’”

“Garrett was damn cute,” Slater added, jokingly. “Let’s get honest about it here.”
If the film, Slater plays Stephen, the adult film producer who first “discovers” Brent Corrigan (played by Garrett Clayton) and aims to turn him into a bona-fide gay porn star. That is until another producer, Joe (played by James Franco), comes along and tries to snatch up his contract.
One of the most important gay-themed films to appear in 2016 or the last 20 years, *Moonlight*, just premiered, with almost universally excellent reviews, and yet nothing on Queerty since a brief post weeks ago. Is it because it doesn’t have white stars? James Franco isn’t somehow involved? No gay-friend pop stars dominate the screen? Why does this site have such a hard time covering anything involving people of color that isn’t negative or that objectifies their bodies?
@Kangol: Um, did the producers pay Queerty to promote Moonlight?!
I don’t understand how Hollywood can be so filled to the brim with gay men yet so homophobic these tools have to create crappy loosely gay movies to express who they really are.
Then again Tyler Perry is doing the same thing in Atlanta.
After all the progress towards people accepting orientation Hollyweird just can’t seem to get on board because they want an endless supply of teen boys to pimp out.
@Captain Obvious: Or gay themed movies aren’t a definitive enough money maker as a genre. Hollywood has never been about art, a hard look at the human condition, or representing the population. It’s about money and there just ain’t as much as the studios need/want in LGBT movies. There probably never will be either. The queer audience comes out of every other demographic possible so there is no monolithic queer culture to appeal too…
Slater is such a better actor. I cannot wrap my mind around his being jealous of anything involving Franco.
I conducted several searches on this site about Barry Jenkins new film Moonlight. This film has been praised as a masterpiece by the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and many others. I could not find one article on Queerty about it. However, there are countless stories about King Cobra. I don’t understand this at all. Are Gay men only interested in movies about cute boys and sex? I don’t believe that to be the case, yet the editors of this site insist on treating us like 13 years old girls. Moonlight is an important film for our country and our community. Get with the program Queerty.
@toby The producers of Moonlight did not pay the New York Times or Rolling Stones to promote their movie either. They did their duty as journalists and reviewed this great film.
@Guy068: They literally said the same thing about black people no less than a decade ago. Now they’re eating their words.
It’s not that there isn’t a market, most of us just don’t like crappy films just because there are gay people in them.
James Franco makes me want to puke.I will never understand why the gay community continues to treat him as if he is doing anything worthwhile for gay people when all he is doing is keeping gays in the negative stereotype of Sexual promiscuity, drugs and death.
it is amazing how much Christian Slater remembers about this gig that took all of about two weeks. On a Today Show segment, James Franco couldn’t remember if his character’s studio was Cobra Video or Viper Boyz.
Franco was filming at least two projects for tv while King Cobra was in production. Look,
The problem here is that people are now trying to treat King Cobra as some serious work and decide on King Cobra’s place in human history when in reality it’s just something Franco and his friends cranked out over a couple of weekends
