I’m incredibly sick right now, and a little loopy from cold medication, so we’re going to fall back on a partially crowdsourced Meme today. But I’ve got some things to get you started.
In Happy Endings news, Saved By the Bell’s Mark-Paul Gosselaar has been cast as Max’s mysterious new roommate, but before that, Max will be playing nurse to Penny in a scenario right out of Misery. “If you’ve seen the movie Misery or read the book, picture me in the Kathy Bates role and Casey in the James Caan role and multiple that by 15, add in a little gay sex and you’ve got the Happy Endings storyline.” Yay! for the gay sex part.
A speaker at a rally for the Maryland Alliance for Marriage, a NOM affiliated group, said that gays are worthy of death, and “If we don’t vote against it (Question 6), then we are approving of these things that are worthy of death!”
TR Knight is headed to The Good Wife to play a political operative. Maybe he could end up dating Alicia’s brother?
Kelly Clarkson says that she’s a Republican at heart, but she’ll be voting for President Obama because “I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends, and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married. I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the 50s.”
New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg has announced $500,000 in matching funds for the marriage fights in Maryland, Maine, Minnesota and Washington. He’ll dole out $125,000 in matching funds for each race.
Russell Means, actor and Native American activist, has passed away at the age of 72. Means arranged to have a Native American accept Marlon Brando’s 1973 Oscar, as well as appearing in movies like the Last of the Mohicans and Natural Born Killers.
Assassin’s Creed is headed to the big screen with Michael Fassbender playing the lead. Fassbender is talented, but movies based on video games seldom work out to be great films.
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka look ready to take a bite out of Katy Perry.
I bet her blood tastes like cotton candy
Speaking of candy, I don’t believe that Mitt Romney gives out
anything on Halloween, because that would be socialism.
Either Adam Levine is playing with a flashlight, or his peen lights up for easy use
In this new clip from Skyfall, James Bond meets his new quartermaster, played by the young Ben Whishaw. The seasoned spy doesn’t appear to be immediately impressed with his young Q, but Whishaw is confident without seeming cocky, and may yet win him over.
Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson were doing a Q&A in Boston at the Wilbur Theater last night. Stonestreet enlisted the Boston Gay Men’s Choir to give JTF a surprise serenade. Very sweet. (And only the first few seconds are sideways!)
McFly’s Harry Judd is all tied up in a promotion for Sour Patch Kids, which happens to be one of my favorite candies in the world, that I miss dearly on my diet. Forget the prize money – if I win, can I just keep Harry?
This week’s NewNowNext Ask the SexPert with Conner Habib features the Accidental Bear, and they discuss the problem of identity with a young bear that’s fallen in with the pack, but doesn’t identify that way. Identity is tough, but it’s not defined for you, you just have to be open to what’s around you. Slightly NSFW.
There’s a trailer for Family Restaurant, about a diner and the little boy who saves the day with the help of his two dads. It features Alec Mapa and his real son.
