#DirtyLaundry: Author Kevin Sessums’ Long, Strange Trip From The Valley To “The Mountain”…


My old friend, Kevin Sessums could be my older brother. We've had similar lives, both being gay, from the south and moving to the big (New York) City at a young age. But he's honestly had a FAR more glamorous life than I (I'm not being falsely modest) and he's had to be MUCH braver than I could ever be... On his 53rd birthday he woke up in the ... See the Rest

#OutInNYC: These Stars Are Just Like Us (But With More $$)

Hugh Jackman seen walking with his dog after a workout session at the gym in New York City

It warmed up over the weekend and lower Manhattan saw a few famous faces out and about. Nothing earth-shattering, but don't you like seeing (pictures of) people out walking around as themselves occasionally, instead of always on your TV & movie screens or styled up on the red carpet? The other day I saw a cute guy coming toward me from far away on ... See the Rest

First Look At Pan (Yes, As In Peter Pan)

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 11.13.06 AM

Sometimes it seems there are only a few dozen stories that Hollywood keeps retelling over and over and over. If it's not Frankenstein or Dracula, it's Batman or Superman. The writer J.M. Barrie created Peter Pan over 100 years ago, and we've been seeing it mounted on the stage and screen for decades ever since with Peter usually played by a woman ... See the Rest

You Absolutely MUST WATCH The Chappie Trailer

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 10.24.17 AM

Right now. No two ways about it. Stop what you're doing and press "play." Chappie is the feel-good robo-thriller from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp starring South African rappers Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er (of Die Antword), Dev Patel, and Hugh Jackman (never thought I'd write THAT sentence!). Every child comes into the world full of promise, ... See the Rest

Hugh Jackman Takes It All Off

And perhaps not in the way you'd have hoped. Hugh Jackman is set to play Blackbeard in the latest take on Peter Pan, simply called Pan, and I suppose he needed to be bald to get into pirate method acting territory. I'm getting more Walter White than I am Blackbeard.... ... See the Rest

The 2014 Tony Awards: All The Winners & Weirdest Moments


I think I can say that was EASILY the gayest Tony's ever – and that's saying a LOT. (A few years ago, when Neil Patrick Harris was hosting, he sang a song by Marc Shaiman with the lyric by Scott Wittman, "It couldn't be gayer, if Liza was Mayor." It could be, and it was.) As the host, Hugh Jackman said at the top of the show, "Whether you like men ... See the Rest
