Morning Meme: Matt Doyle Sings For Trevor Project, Bosley To Be a Nerdy Hunk, and Why Piers Morgan Banned Madonna

ABC is working on rebooting Charlie’s Angels for the fall season, and while the Angels have
always been smokin’ hot, Bosley hasn’t
been much to look at. But that may be changing. TV Guide reports on the casting: “John Bosley, in
his late-20s to mid-30s, is described as having “GQ looks” and a
“Peter Pan” smile. While the detective is known for his savvy hacking
skills, a killer six-pack hides under his designer suits.” So he’s a gay nerd?
Setting my DVR now.

President Obama
appointed a new Chief of Staff now that Rahm
is going to become dictator of Chicago. But is William Daley going to be bad for gay rights?

Our corporate cousins over at Best Week Ever have gathered a
collection of The 11 Most Effable Male Sex Dolls (mildly NSFW). The names
just slay me “The Twink Martindale” or “The Adam Lambert” sort of make sense,
but I’m still confused by “The Christine Baranski.”

September 30th is an official nerd holiday, since the entire Star
will be released on BluRay. It may restart the economy,
since you’ll likely need to get a multigenerational mortgage to pay for it.

We may have mentioned that Steve Howey, most famous for being the rather clueless hunk Van on Reba , is in the new Showtime production
of Shameless, and that he does the Full Monty. Totally NSFW images from the scene in question are
available to help you decide if you need to subscribe to Showtime.

Lady Gaga’s collaboration
with Polaroid is going to lead to a bunch of new products, but none quite as
strange as the wraparound glasses which have a camera in the center, with
LCD screens facing outward to show the images you’ve captured.

Secretary Gates has ordered the DoD to accelerate the pace of repeal for
Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, saying the preparation for regulations and changes should
be done in weeks, then training for the 2.2 million soldiers can begin. I’m
still unclear as to what we’re training them on, but maybe that’s just me.

Remember the little boy who dressed as Daphne from Scooby Doo for Halloween? Warner Bros. shipped him a huge gift pack of Scooby Doo toys, videos and
games, plus a custom, autographed drawing of Daphne with Scooby.

Skeezy underwear designer Andrew Christian has debuted the Shock Jock Flirt, the penis enhancing
underwear, with a molded penis insert to enhance your look at the club.

Steven Spielberg
has evidently shot some footage for his ridiculously expensive time travel dinosaur
series Terra Nova, because we have some pictures to look at. No real sweeping
vistas, nor any dinosaurs, but lots of images of terrified people, which is
what I look for when I choose new programs.

Piers Morgan felt it necessary to expound on why he’s banned Madonna from his new CNN show. “”[Madonna] has kind of been an irritant in my life for 20 years, so I had to ban her from
the show. Lady Gaga is half her age,
twice as talented, twice as good looking — why would I bother with

Fox is doing it’s best to make sure that there’s something
about Super Bowl Sunday for those of us that don’t like football. There’s the
giant Glee episode after the game, and before the game Bill
will interview President
. I can’t imagine anything more uncomfortable.

A penguin escaped the penguin enclosure at a German zoo and wandered into the lion enclosure. Fortunately, the lions
had no intention of leaving their heated den to go outside and snack on a
penguin pop. Also, how insecure are these pens?

The birth of twins spanned the
in New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, making the twins born in
separate years. It probably happens all the time, but it’s still kind of cool.

China is considering making it a felony to not visit your parents often enough,
or to not care for them into their golden years.

A Swedish company named “locum” designed possibly the worst logo in the history of logos.



Since he’s part of the gay community officially now (whatever that means), can we all take a vote that Ricky Martin’s vacations have to be to somewhere that he’s photographed in a Speedo, and not ski clothes? Still, it’s nice to see him relaxing after that long press tour.

He conquered the world – including this mountain.

I know we had video of Neil Patrick Harris kissing David Burtka on the cheek yesterday, but I sort of like this endless loop.

Casual, just like straight people!

So, per Attitude, Jimmy Choo is set to reveal his first collection of men’s shoes. If these are an example of what he has in mind, exactly who is the market for these shoes?

I need something in a steel toe for the day job – got anything?

This Photoshop of Alec Baldwin and Zac Efron has been burning up the Internet the past few days. I have to admit, I may have growled at the thought.

Maybe Zac will hit puberty now that he’s single?

I wonder how many weird phone calls they get?



I know some of you don’t enjoy my fascination with animated films, but, well, it’s my column! And I have to admit I’m not a fan of the Ice Age series. But this teaser for Ice Age 4 Continental Drift is clever. He’s just a squirrel trying to get a nut.


Neverland is a Sky Movie, just like Ice Age 4. This prequel to Peter Pan is set to air on SyFy as a miniseries and possible weekly series. Casting is marvelous, Rhys Ifans, Bob Hoskins, Anna Friel. But I’m just not feeling the magic.


Honestly, James Van Der Beek is on a comedy roll this week. I couldn’t play you his middle video due to language, but it was hysterical. Now, he’s back pitching DILF Brand Khakis.


Fred Karger tries to explain a perfect world (possibly existing in Neverland) in which the Republican Party goes back to its roots of Lincoln and Roosevelt, and there’s a place for gay people.


I’m a bit unfamiliar with indie musician Sufjan Stevens, but he has a passionate following online. A few years back he and his brother traveled to Michigan to see their father, and a film was made. First trailer is out, and I’m not sure what it’s about, to be honest. But it’s getting buzz.


Parks & Recreation is getting a premiere preview, and I have to admit, I don’t care for the show. I know we went nuts for the gay penguins and all, but while I appreciate the message, I can’t say I find the show amusing in the least. But some people are passionate about it, so if that’s you, here’s the new season preview.


John Carpenter has made a new horror movie called The Ward, which appears to be an excuse to get young actresses into group shower scenes.


And finally, if you read this column regularly, you know I’m a huge fan of Matt Doyle, be it Gossip Girl, Bye Bye Birdie, or any number of charity functions. I find him sweet and hugely talented. He’s got an EP coming out shortly that we’ve talked about before, and on January 3rd, at My Favorite Things: A Night of Songs to Benefit The Trevor Project, he previewed one of the original songs, and he was kind enough to send me the video to share with you. I knew he could sing, and I knew he was hot, but somehow watching him perform live, I was still shocked at that big voice coming from that boyish face. I’ll certainly buy the EP.


Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
