Did you watch last night? Sundays are Ja’mie-zing!!!
Chris Lilley has another international hit on his hands! 9 more days until the “quiche” HBO premiere!!
Yet another tease at the new HBO series, “Looking”… good, bad, whatever, I’ll be watching. Kinda looks like the gay version of “Girls”, huh?
The good folks behind the show Looking over at HBO — it’s the eagerly anticipated (by everyone I know, anyway) new series chronicling the loves and lives of gay men in San Francisco — have posted a mini-teaser/trailer. It whooshes by in 20 seconds, and you mostly see Jonathan Groff, well, looking at boys. (One of my favorite past-times.) But you also get a great shot of the adorable/edible Russell Tovey!
Gays are already grousing (because why wouldn’t they) about how the show may or may not represent them. Fuss, fuss, fuss… I can’t wait for this! It premieres on January 19th. More, please!
They’re right, of course, about the inequality of nudity on TV.
Russell Tovey, best known in the UK as the werewolf George Sands on the BBC’s hit supernatural drama, Being Human, has been signed on to play a recurring role in Looking, HBO’s upcoming half-hour dramedy concerning the lives of a group of gay men living in San Francisco. Tovey will be Kevin, a financially and critically successful video game wunderkind. It’s the first major US role for the openly gay 31-year-old, who has previously shied away from playing gays. ”Every character I play is straight,” he said not long ago, “which [my agent tells me] is unique, because it’s not really been done before that someone who is completely out is able to play straight roles. So for me to play gay it has to be something special, because it might actually be more of a risk. So I’m waiting for that role – I want it to be something that moves things forward.” But wait, there’s more: Along with the show’s horny co-stars Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez, and Murray Bartlett, there will be Scott Bakula playing a wealthy, popular figure in the San Francisco gay community. So that’s definitely a draw. The eight-episode series will begin shooting in San Francisco any minute now.
