Killer Joe has Joe frontally nude in one scene as he enters a house.
MC agreed with Friedkin to film the way it was in the play, then renigged when 80% of the filming was done and his nude scene was up.
He wore a cock sock and tied a ribbon around it, absolutely refusing. He told them to scrap the footage and cast someone else if they needed a prick so bad.
Rather than show his dick, he was one.
Why couldn't he wear a prosthetic, like so many other full-frontals (like Boogie Nights, or Y Tu Mama Tambien)?
Short and stubby - like his arms !
R5 not everyone wants a make up person to see what they have in order to attach the fake dick.
Some people are just naturally modest I guess! I can't help it if I'm not an exhibitionist!
Wouldn't this kind of thing be in his contract?
Yes R9, that is the point. He refused despite the contractual agreement.
If they fired him at that point for breach they would have had to re-shoot 80% of the film and they would have lost the star power.
Will this hurt his future career? Would directors now refuse to hire him?
Did he give a logical explanation for the refusal?
Learn something new everyday on DL. Didn't know that they use "fake penises." Don't know what the obsession about size is anyway. Used to know a Armani cologne model. We would sunbathe and he would wear shorts almost to his knees, (he was 6' with very long legs) and I'd still see it "peeking out."
He's already shown his dick on film, however blurry and brief, so I don't know what his issue is with showing it again.
R12 I've no idea what the issue is...maybe because it was going to be well lit and not brief and blurry.
R12 what film...do you have pics?
Is this the same as not voting for Romney?
OP is the "I'm gay but like pussy better" troll.
I saw the movie last week. You can see his balls for a second in this scene, swinging between his legs. Lots of ass. I guess he just wants to keep the shaft to himself.
He certainly didn't have a problem waving his dick in front of Woody Harrelson's and Josh Lucas's faces while playing the bongos!!!!
Shit, they had him playing bongos in his strip routine in "Magic Mike"!

It was actually Cole Hauser who was with Matthew when he got arrested for bongo playing.
As for Matthew's dick, I think he may have a short but thick one. His balls, however, I believe are big low-hangers.
I saw the film last year at TIFF. As a top, I was more than satisfied to see his hot ass so no big deal not seeing his dick.
By the way the movie was GREAT!
Ladies who don't want to shoot their nude scenes should remember this trick. "Let's film the rest of the movie first ..."
In this movie Gena Gershon also has a nude scene, and they used an enormous merkin! Like a fucking afro. Gena Gershon! I feel like I was so introduced to her labia in Showgirls that I shook her its hand! I think it was because Friedkin wanted an old-timey full bush though and I doubt she's got anything down there, you know women these days, and that's why the merkin was used. But still. This movie is a mess of genitalia.
[quote] It was actually Cole Hauser who was with Matthew when he got arrested for bongo playing.
not bongo playing. It was naked bongo playing
I thought he was initially arrested because he was playing too loudly. The cops just happened to see that he was naked when they came into his house.
Well... this is legitimately disappointing.
Future directors now know to film the cock scene FIRST!!
Why are American actors always so afraid to show their cocks? They do it in Europe all the time.
Sometimes it's just not necessary to show a dick. That's all some European films have going for them. Poor lighting and a cock shot tricks people into thinking it's "gritty" and "real", whenever the screenplay's shit.
Fassbender's set the bar high now for mainstream actors doing full frontal.
Killer Joe was excellent though. Some of it still had the air of theatre about it ("Let her change, Dad. Let her CHANGE. Don't you get it, this is a metaphor for her character arc, Let...HER...change") but I was surprised by how much I liked it.
[quote]Sometimes it's just not necessary to show a dick. That's all some European films have going for them. Poor lighting and a cock shot tricks people into thinking it's "gritty" and "real", whenever the screenplay's shit.
Yes, but you're basically describing B-movies. Most mainstream European movies have male nudity in them and they're good movies. And that's certainly not all European movies have going for them.
French actor,Alain Delon,showed everything in a movie way back. He looked beautiful,but I think it would've been better to keep the mystery.
I don't think Alain Delon did much full-frontal nudity to speak of, unless you're talking about a brief nude scene he did on a beach when he was older.
re Alan Delon: you have to understand that French people tend to be more naked in real life than Americans, so it's not a stretch for an actor in a French movie to show full-frontal. To do so in the U.S. is a real statement; there, it's regular life.
We are a nation of prudes.
[quote]they would have lost the star power.
and they'd have to go back to the 1990's to get it back.
[quote]you have to understand that French people tend to be more naked in real life than Americans
No, not really. They're just not freaked out by it when it does happen...
Why is it OK for a female to show full-frontal and not a male? Thinking back to "The Crying Game," and I though "fair-play." Or was that just a side-view? And do they have "cock substitutes or stand-ins?"
Rarely do they have stand in's. However Marky Mark refused to allow the fake dick (he did not want the make up people talking about his real size) so a stand in was used for the fake cock scenes.
You never see the face and the dick in the same shot.
I've seen a lot of photos of McConnaghy in the last week (at events for the film) and he looks skeletally skinny. Is he sick?
Not sick, R39, just losing weight for a new role. He said that by the time filming starts on the new movie, he doesn't want to look healthy at all.
Isn't this the movie that's being produced by the married guy who hit on that actress on a plane and she was tweeting all about it live? The guy who told his bullshit Christian redemption story on the View with his none too happy wife by his side?
Maybe he doesn't want DL to make fun of his private parts.
R42, perhaps Michael Fassbender set a size standard that is too big for him to overcome.
Maybe it was his fluffer's week off
I think R43 has hit the nail on the head.
Notice the guy who claimed Mc had done a frontal never came back to the thread with proof.
Is it me, or does he look like the Lochness Monster in this pic?
He's so smug and self-aware - ugh. I can't stand him. I hope he does have a micro wienie. In addition, I've heard from reliable sources who've been around him more than once that he's got questionable hygiene - horrid body odor. Blech.
I feel like chicken tonight, like chicken tonight
All you 'mos are into chicken right?
Fuck him and his mush-mouthed baby-factory skank.
r-48 wins for best answer
That was a shitty thing to do...if it really went down like that.
I haven't seen many Matthew McConaughey films but his nude scenes in The Paperboy were pretty graphic and extended. If there was a dick flash I missed it but his characters gay storyline, sex scene and bathroom/shower scene more than made up for what he hasn't shown.
He had a reputation for not bathing. I wonder if marriage has gotten him in the habit of using a bathtub and shower.
There is no right to see other peoples' bodies, especially there genitals. In fact, most normal people believe in keeping their genitals private, hence, the name "privates." I respect that normal desire and choice.
the US is fucked.
I spent some time in Europe. London, Paris...
Small example: Pink's song was heard on the radio there and here is a lyric I easily heard: "...I had a shit day".
Back in the States, this is what I hear: "...I had a day"
Yet we can show on national tv a head getting blown off (Walking Dead (I love it, btw)), verbal abuse of women, the word "fag", etc.
European actors have no issue showing their dicks. Americans are prudes. PRUDES.
McBongo is no exception. And he was completely NUDE playing with his equally hot, equally nude friend Cole Hauser.
If I had a tiny dick, I wouldn't want to have it flashed in front of the camera where it's on record forever. That could be the reason, or maybe he had some other reason.
I saw Killer Joe. It really wouldn't have made the movie any better.
Why does OP care?

If you simultaneously had another movie released in which you played an aging stud stripper you might feel the same way about how your junk was perceived by the public, and so would the creative team behind that stripper movie.
Revised by Sandra Bullock and Jamie Jones March 23rd, 2013. This actress (Sandra Bullock) has not only been in this spot before, but has also won an Academy Award. This actress (Sandra Bullock) who is still very much an A list actress has not worked much in the past two years but still maintains that status. Much like The Backstabber [another Blind Item where consensus said it was Reese Witherspoon], this actress also has tried to hold the title of the world’s sweetheart.
Everyday though, our actress (Sandra Bullock) lives with a secret. A big secret. One that she (feels) if revealed would cause her to lose any future roles and would also make the public at large feel like they could never trust her. Lets call her Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock).
For the past 20+ years our actress (Sandra Bullock) has been in the closet. That in of itself is not the biggest deal in the world, but it is the way she chooses to create this fiction around her which is probably the greatest acting job ever.
Generally when it comes to the world of beards it is a very male dominated world with gay men finding women to act as beards. Our actress (Sandra Bullock) has become a master (poor choice of words) of the beard and has told friends she used Katharine Hepburn as her role model.
Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock) has always had that innocent look in movies. She tries to stay out of the tabloids and to never draw attention to herself except when it comes to one very important thing-men. Some of A list actors have been linked to Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock), but they never actually go out. Most of them A list actors and all of them supposedly wanting to date Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock). The truth is none of them have ever dated Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock) but sure are happy to hang out with her (except Tate Donovan-he did date Sandra Bullock). They (she) keep her (their) secret safe while making it look like she (they) is desirable and wanted and all heterosexual (Sandra Bullock is heterosexual otherwise Jamie Jones would not be helping her). She also keeps their secrets.
The first actor (Tate Donovan) who went along for the ride with Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock) was supposed to be a long term thing. He is (not) an A lister and only shows up on television in cameos. Although these two were supposedly together for a year or more (they knew each other for 4 years), no one ever saw them out in public. She is not good in public with affection and men. Despite her Academy Award, she is not that good with men on the screen either. Most of her relationships on screen are not about long kisses and sex scenes. In fact, it is rare that she ever kisses a man on screen.
Anyway, she and Actor #1 (Tate Donovan) had a thing until she found out about some things he was doing to other women (and men) that she found repulsive (Tate Donovan is a homosexual). He was setting them up and acting more like a pimp than an actor. Plus, he wanted a relationship that involved sex with a woman and Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock) did not play that game so they split. Unlike her other bearded relationships, Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock) never speaks to Actor #1 (Tate Donovan) because of his past actions.
Actor #2 (Keanu Reeves) was second on the playlist after Actor #1. He is an A lister, but probably would never have achieved it without the help of Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock) who showed her appreciation for his year of service by introducing him to people that took his career from a “hey, that guy is pretty good, to an automatic green light if this guy is on board.” The secret she keeps for him is that, despite the fact that women crave him, he does not reciprocate (Keanu Reeves is a homosexual and started out in Hollywood as a male prostitute). His longest term relationship was a struggle for him because he was always going back and forth between men and women and his B list actress girlfriend did not appreciate that (Keanu Reeves first girlfriend was killed). Actor #2 (Keanu Reeves) did (not) introduce Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock) to someone who has become a fixture in her life.
Actor #3 (Matthew McConaughey) is also A list and is perfectly happy to let the tabloids think that he has sex with Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock) every time he is single. They don’t, but he (Matthew McConaughey) hates the tabloids anyway and feels like he is sticking it to them each time. They do really care for each other (not true) and when he is involved with someone th[e]y can’t hang out because then people might suspect they are just friends. It is only when they are both “single,” that he (Matthew McConaughey) can come over and the tabloids go crazy (go crazy, poor choice of words).
In what is probably the best example of her acting skill, our actress (Sandra Bullock) even faked a marriage. The couple (Sandra Bullock and Jessie James) never had sex, but when he (Jesse James) began to stray and get caught, it had to end. She (Sandra Bullock) had to play the hurt wife, even though she didn’t care at all about the affairs, but the fact that she was going to have to end it and lose her perfect cover.
[This part isn't true-At the present time, Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock) just stays at home and does not have a few select, very long term companions that she (does not see) who pose as maids or assistants or whatever makes them innocuous to the paparazzi (this entire paragraph is being retracted as it simply was not true). Secret Keeper (Sandra Bullock) is probably the best ever at keeping a secret.]
