A still and a gif of Elizabeth Taylor in a transparent-when-wet bathing suit from Joseph L Mankiewicz’ overwrought and overacted 1959 movie of Tennessee Williams’ Suddenly Last Summer, arguably the gayest of Williams’ gay oeuvre, made even gayer by Gore Vidal co-writing the screenplay with Williams. In fact, James St James tells us that seeing the movie at the age of 13 turned him gay.
Um, yum. Good for Tennessee, right? I’m sure he’d be pleased that such a strapping young morsel is playing him in the upcoming Carson McCullers biopic. The movie, starring Jena Malone as the Southern Gothic novelist, is set to go before cameras this year, and casting is ongoing for McCullers’ other pals like Truman Capote and Gypsy Rose Lee. Might I suggest Tom Hardy for Truman Capote, as long as we’re pretending Tennessee looked like THIS? Btw, Logan Marshal Green, for those of you seeing him here for the first time, is about to blow up big time this summer in Prometheus. He’s gonna be YOOOGE. (via Deadline)
