Cartoon Getting Queer

Eric Bana Gets Gay, Illustrated

Handsome Australian actor Eric Bana’s playing gay:

He’s played a tattooed crim, a green monster and now the gay love interest of a Kiwi sheep farmer named Desmond.

In his most unusual role yet, Eric Bana will voice the character in Oscar-winner Adam Elliot’s first animated feature, Mary & Max.

Bana previously lent his vocal tones to a shark in Finding Nemo in 2003.

Elliot has also recruited Toni Collette to voice Mary in his $8.5 million plasticine-character flick, while Barry Humphries is the narrator.

Mary & Max is due to hit cinemas late 2008.

No doubt “family” activists have marked their calendars for a good old fashioned protest.
