Kevin Zegers Goes Queer While Kellan Lutz Is A Straight Dude In A Homo World

Two up-and-coming actors have signed on for a pair of gay-themed movies, but their roles couldn’t be further apart.

Kevin Zegers (Transamerica, Gossip Girl) has landed a leading role in the film adaptation of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, based on the first book in Cassandra Clare’s best-selling fantasy series. Zegers, 27, will play Alec, a gay man in love with Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower) and in major hate with female protagonist Clary, the object of Jace’s affection. City of Bones is slotted to hit theaters August 2013.

Meanwhile Kellan Lutz of Twilight fame is not playing gay—he’s playing a straight man in a world where 90% of the population is homosexual. (Didn’t we see that in an old episode of Ellen?)

According to The Hollywood Reporter , Lutz is being paired with Camilla Belle as a closeted straight couple in a world where breeders are the ones getting bullied. The film, Love Is All You Need?, will feature a number of storyline and is being directed by Kim Rocco Shield, who originally produced it as a short.

    Almost Normal already did this as a short and a feature.
    Horrible concept.

    Oh for fuck sakes. So Hollywood won’t make gay stories, with out gay actors, but will make movies where hets–played by straight actors–are being “bullied” by gays. This is just another straight love story like every other piece of shit that Hollywood produces.

    Ugh, I can’t believe they are trying the “everyone’s gay” film angle again. Who green lighted that?
    However, Kevin Zegers makes my blood boil. Yikes…can’t wait for that one.

    That kid has been gay since he was 12. I wonder when he’s going to officially come out.

    I would hardly call “The Mortal Instruments” series gay-themed. Yes, Zegers is playing a gay character but it’s a supporting role in a movie whose major story is a hetero romance.

  • hamoboy

    The Mortal Instruments basically subjugates the gay characters and storylines in subservience to the hetero characters and storyline. Alec is in love with Jace, who doesn’t give a shit, and the protagonist (female lead) attacks Alec immediately upon realizing he’s gay. SMH. Anyways *SPOILERS* It’s an 1ncest romance story, or at least, that’s where the plot was reading when I stopped reading the second book…

    FYI: R. Grantham West used this alternate reality in AD2040: Through a Dark Glass Clearly in 2007, and rewrote/republished it in 2011 as AD2040: Clear and Present Danger, Triumph of the Religious Right. Complex similar plot, but well worth the read. He has a trailer on http://www.granthamwest.com that is the synopsis of the latest book.

    “Zanna Don’t” is another play about a gay world with 10% breeders.

  • James M. Martin

    The news about Zegers is hot! He broke out in “Transamderica” and has done good work since.

  • Troy

    Kellan Lutz pings to high heavens – I think he is gay.

  • DouggSeven

    @Troy: Except, he’s not gay and dates women.

    But please, continue saying this stupidity so we can have a few more Tome Cruise and John Travolta extortion situations. Years and years of rumors that finally expoldes into an actual allegation – but as usual – there are no credible witnesses, videotape, or actual pictures to prove any fact.

    So typical…

  • DouggSeven

    Oh, and the movie looks terrible and was already done. It was called White Man’s Burden from the 90s.

  • Haha

    @DouggSeven: You sound mad.

  • Darreyl102

    @DouggSeven: “Except, he’s not gay and dates women.”- and that proves what? I think of tons of people who were really gay and did/do the same thing so…

    Staring at a guy’s crotch does not make me gay either? Getting a boner from it does. Got a boner for Jamie Campbell Bower and Kevin Zegers both. Very pretty boys the Brits make.
