Awww Sweetie that's nice, but if you don't have your own TV show, it doesn't count now, does it?
They are in reality the same person.
That would be so awesome if Jim Parsons and Matt Bomer were a couple.
Their assbaby would look just like the Geena Davis/Jeff Goldblum child of my nightmares, R14.
Hunter Parrish (WEEDS) also originates from a place in Texas not that far from there, so it's interesting.
I've always thought Hunter was gay.
Jane Smiley and Jonathan Franzen, two of the most successful literary novelists of the late 20th/early 21st centuries, are both from the St. Louis suburb of Webster Groves.
Almost 40,000 people live in Spring, TX.
Not such a small place.
What about Chace Crawford? Is he from nearby? Or is that just where he was arrested for smoking pot last year?
Lee Pace is still closeted.
Booking my ticket as I type.
Because they all are such good actors and come from the same town... right?!!!
Bomer would have made a really good John Ross Ewing on Dallas.
Is it like how all the Army generals went to the same school, West Point?

"Spring, TX' as a USPS entity also covers a couple of hundred thousand people living in unincorporated zones of north Harris County and southern Montgomery County, in the master-planned suburb called The Woodlands.
Renee Zellweger is often described as being from the "small town" of Katy, TX, which in reality is another sprawling suburb adjacent to Houston.
[quote]the "small town" of Katy, TX
Sort of like the "small town" of Whittier, CA or the "small town" of Newton, MA?
Matt Bomer looks like an idiotic famewhore in that photo.
He's just standing there - how does that make him idiotic or a famewhore?

His nasty husband.
His husband isn't even in the picture.
I love how some people(clueless straight women?) thought the OP was simply referring to three celebrities being from the same area rather than three GAY celebrities.
As the other thing that comes from Texas, I'm not surprised.
R35 You're so slow. Simon paid these online mags to publish this "breaking news" about Pace FEATURING his boring ass stepford wife Matt Bomer.
R36, except no one thought that.
R38, I guess I am slow because I still have no clue what the fuck you're talking about.
R39 is obviously being willfully ignorant. Or you're just very, very stupid.
Matt was adorable, even in high school
Um, it's Houston...the fourth largest city in the U.S.A.
It's like saying "OMG!! Wilson Cruz, Cynthia Nixon, Anthony Perkins, Harvey Fierstein and Lyndsey Lohan were all born in New York City. What gives??!!" OK I'm exaggerating because New York covers a lot more territory than Spring, Texas, but they were basically in a large metro area. Plus, Matt and Lee went to high school together, so the possibility exists that one paved the road for the other. Does someone know?
R27 is correct. "Spring" covers vastly more area than the actual *town* of Spring. Basically it covers a major chunk of Houston's northern suburbs, which is where the majority of the region's middle- and upper-middle class now lives (in part because the schools are quite good). This is in contrast to its eastern and southern 'burbs, which are mostly lower-middle class (with the exception of Clear Lake, which still houses a significantly sized scientific community even though NASA has largely shuttered operations at the nearby Johnson Space Center).
That said, OP is mistaken about The Woodlands being a part of Spring; it's a separately incorporated city, and you'd address a USPS letter going there to "The Woodlands, TX".
R40 You are just as clueless as Matt Bomer's stupid face.
Does anyone think they were boning in high school?
This thread is two years old. Who the fuck bumped it?
"Almost 40,000 people live in Spring, TX."
The fashion observation that 'this Spring's line is really gay' seems to also apply to this town's lineage.
Lee Pace's gay is not news anymore, majority of his fans are okay with it. He's not in the closet, he's not bearding. Will you stupid jealous bitches move on?
Spring, Texas? Fucking amateur.
Massapequa, Long Island
R41, then quote these posts.
There are no antiques in Texas, just cheap junk no one wants. Don't waste your time looking.
Yes, he is in the closet. Until he says publicly, "my boyfriend" or "I'm gay" then he's in the closet. Being out to friends and family only isn't out if you're a celebrity, even a C-lister like Pace.
Nah, R45, you're clearly the idiot. Your response to someone asking how a poster posting a picture of them in highschool is Bomer being a famewhore is that "Simon paid these online mags to publish this "breaking news" about Pace FEATURING his boring ass stepford wife Matt Bomer."
That makes zero sense. Again, that has nothing to do with the question that was asked.
Lee Pace is hardly a C-lister. The Hobbit movies, his own AMC show, and he's the main villain in the biggest movie in the world right now.
But yes, he is a coward.
These posterd are stereotypical of the fags in most gay pride parades, mean and ugly.
Most people still don't know who he is. He's C-list. The movie is a genre film, which means people were going to see it no matter who played the villain. The TV show might end up getting canceled. The Hobbit films are more genre fare. He's simply not in the public eye enough to be above C-list.

I've known quite a few gay guys from Spring, TX. Considering the size of this berg, it's rather surprising. Since interstate 10 passes through Houston, it does provide a straight shot to Hollywood. Many of the people I met from Spring have personalities similar to those who have become famous.
"He's [Pace] simply not in the public eye enough to be above C-list."
I'm no fangirl, but I'd call Pace a solid B-list. He's a not a movie star but he is a well-regarded character actor, with leads or co-leads in TV series, good supporting roles in major films, and leads in well-regarded indie films. If he keeps doing this well, he'll be working long after today's A-listers have been forgotten.
Just a few reason to see Texas as not all bad. I'm not a Texan, but I did go to school there. It makes me feel bad to read the horrible things people on DL say about Texas. I like the place more than a little bit.
Houston area isn't that bad. Austin area isnt that bad. Those places are largely Democrats, and have huge gay populations.
R31 Not sure if the photo on the right is still high school, but - no matter: You can see that Matt's chest is already developing nicely.
Rock Hudson and Charlton Heston went to high school together.
"Rock Hudson and Charlton Heston went to high school together."
They also went to school with Hugh O'Brian aka Wyatt Earp
Ann-Margaret also went to the same high school as Hudson, Heston and O'Brien. Although she graduated years after them.

Bomer said he was still fucking gals back then. Maybe he still does.
Spring is a pretty redneck part of Harris County. Houston is a big area and gays are all over and generally no one cares. It's far more tolerant than Dallas. We have a three-term lesbian mayor elected with a lot of Republican support.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
