Craig: From sexy 'Bond to bisexual Hadrian
When Daniel Craig emerged from the
sea in those square-cut swim trunks in
"Casino Royale/' he crossed over from art-
house film gay pin-up to mainstream queer
heartthrob before he even had a chance to
So what better news could there be than
to learn that the brutish Brit will play the
bisexual 2nd Century A.D. Roman emperor
Hadrian in a new movie? Maybe that
Charlie Hunnam (the original U.K. "Queer
as Folk") will star as his part-time young
No word yet on who will play the long-
suffering Mrs. Hadrian. But the rest of
the known facts are that John
Boorman ("Deliverance/' "Tailor of
Panama") will direct "Memoirs of
Hadrian " based on the 1951 book
by Marguerite Yourcenar, and it's
set to hit theaters sometime in
2010, with a (hopefully naughtier,
unrated) DVD sometime after
Franco will 'Howl' as Ginsberg
James Franco ("Pineapple Express'
just finished playing a gay man in Gus
Van Sant's "Milk," where he co-
starred as the late Harvey Milk's
(Sean Penn) partner Scott
So as a follow-up, he's stepping into Beat
poet Alan Ginsberg's shoes in Rob Epstein
and Jeffery Friedman's ("The Celluloid
Closet") film "Howl."
The title comes from Ginsberg's most
famous work, written at the height of the
Beat movement, and reports are that the
film is a documentary of sorts — Epstein
and Friedman are Oscar-winners for "The
Times of Harvey Milk" and "Common
Threads: Stories from the Quilt" — with
Franco playing Ginsberg in re-enacted
moments from the gay
years. (Or, as

Who knows why the variety show died,
but it did. And that was a sad day for
The void is somewhat filled by
"American Idol" and "Dancing with the
Stars," but where is today's "Ed Sullivan
Show," "Donny and Marie" or "Carol
NBC thinks it knows, and is in the
process of rebooting the concept for a mod-
The Peacock thinks switching it up and
presenting the concept on multiple nights
with a variety of hosts is one answer, and
one of their first picks is America's favorite
loose-cannon sweetheart, Rosie O'Donnell.
She's proven she can be sweet and scrap-
py, lovable and loud, and if the network
can learn from mistakes by "The View"
and meet the star's needs, it could have
Some real must-see-TV on its hands again.
First sketch comedy idea of the new
show: Rosie in her "A League of Their
Own" uniform, throwing fast balls at
Donald Trump in a dunking tank.
The gay porn couple of 'Zack and Miri'
Filmmaker Kevin Smith's ("Clerks,"
Chasing Amy") latest in-production
comedy, "Zack and Miri Make a
Porno," is about a heterosexual
pair (Seth Rogen, Elizabeth
Banks) venturing into the porn
But Smith loves the gays.
And he especially loves to
make his films' characters
talk about gay sex, the dirti-
er the better.
So queer audiences who
share the director's
raunchy comedy aesthetic
were recently treated
with the news that actors
Justin Long (he's the
Mac guy) and Brandon
Returns") will play a
gay couple in the film.
Based on advance
recently at Comic-Con
in San Diego, Routh is
the somewhat uptight
boyfriend of Long,
who's a diva-like gay
Also based on that
advance footage and its
filthy dialogue, no more
details can be shared
here. But trust us, it's
funny, and due in theaters
