Though I'd love to see it happen, I will only believe it when I'm sitting in a theater watching it.
Shemar Moore, the delicious hottie.
[quote] Hopefully he finds a counterpart that he loves as much as Pettyfer, as he adds, “He’s so hot, isn’t he? So hot. And so aware of his hotness in a way that’s so…I love him to death.”
He is so wet for him. Do you want some crackers for your soup, Lee?
Of course he's hot for Alex. Alex is everything that every gay man wants. He's hot, sexy, cocky, and a big douche.
Lee, I know you read DL, take a look at Nathan Owens for the role of the black guy.
Nathan Owens isn't black enough.
Mechad Brooks would be good.
Charles Michael Davis from this new show called The Originals or Jesse Williams from Grey's Anatomy.
Nathan Owens is sooooo HOT!!!! He reminds me of a young Will Lemay.
No. Mechad Brooks R5 Lee Daniels should pick a hot lightskin, mixed black guy like Charles Michael Davis (Black/Filipino) or Jesse Williams, or Nathan Owens. Hollywood would publicize the movie more also. If a dark skinned black guy is picked I'm no longer interested in the movie.
Someone remarked on Queerty that Michael B. Jordan might not be a good choice for Daniels' film "after that whole Andrew Garfield suggestion of casting Michael as Spider-man’s gay lover didn’t go over so well, he doesn’t seem like a willing candidate for a gay character."
Does anyone know what Michael said? I don't recall ever hearing anything public from him regarding that story.
Sounds like a bullshit tabs-baiting story. If he intended to do this, why would he give away the twist?
Not to mention, if they're not going to touch each other during the course of the film (until the end I assume), it doesn't sound like much of a gay movie.
Why interracial? That sounds like they're already planning to explain why it bombed.
[quote]If a dark skinned black guy is picked I'm no longer interested in the movie.
Lee Daniels is a dark-skinned black guy, you bigot.
R12 shut the fuck up! Me not wanting to see a gay dark skinned gay man on the silver screen is no different than you not wanting to see a gay ginger head. It's my preference and I don't find dark skinned black men attractive neither does hollywood. Dark skinned Black women are attractive like Gabrielle Union, Naomi Campbell, Kenya Moore, but not dark skinned men.
Let's hope for Will Smith and wait for the homophobic sparklers to fly,
R7 / R12 shut the fuck up you fucking racist. You are disgusting.
I hope they pick a nice sexy very dark guy just to spite you. Racist piece of shit.
Why Pettyfer? He's not that hot. He's good looking but has wrinkles on his face, yellow teeth and a big nose. There are many other white actors who would be hotter.
I'm also torn about them picking a straight actor...while it's a fantasy of many gays to see straight men acting as a gay couple, this would be a nice opportunity for gay actors to get some work...
I'd pay to see anything with Nathan Owens, and so would most people with eyes. He's is beyond hot, exceptionally gorgeous
David Gandy is hotter than Alex Pettyfer. I think David Gandy and Charles Michael Davis would be good. Or David Gandy and Jarrod Joseph. New faces in acting.
pick Mechad Brooks or Lance Gross. r7/13, you are ignorant and bigoted. Your views are revolting.
R8, Jordan's response was that he didn't have any thoughts on it. (link)
Give me a film with Alex Pettyfer and Charles Michael Davis and I will be sleeping outside a theater until it opens no matter how long.
R16 R22 I really don't care what you all think. If they pick a dark skinned black man, I save my money. I don't find them attractive or sexually desirable and that doesn't make me racist.
My picks for the role should be between Charles Michael Davis, Nathan Owens, and Jarrod Joseph.
Alex Pettfyr was considered for Brokeback Mountain and, of course, Milk but his father is a huge homophobe and said there was no way his son was going to play a poof. So I doubt this will happen.
R26 Great to hear Lee should pick David Gandy then.
David Gandy has no charisma. I think he has the Aspergers.
Alex will be good in this, Lee obviously knows what he wants in the character.
I think Lee daniels is a hack.
Lol R28 is right David Gandy's personality is that of watching cement dry. But he is a gorgeous muse nonetheless.
Don't think he has Aspergers though, just not that charismatic for movie roles or TV.
As long as he calls the movie "LEE DANIEL'S Mr and Mr Smith" I'm okay with whoever.
Lee Daniels is obsessed with Alex Pettyfer. That snow queen needs to stop using the casting couch to punish movie-goers.
To the racist piece of shit in this thread, fine, save your money. I hope Daniels picks a super sexy VERY DARK black guy. You don't need to see the movie if you don't like it. Go fuck yourself in your "white and light are right" world. So sick of the KKK members on this site.
[quote] So sick of the KKK members on this site.
He's trolling you. And you're letting him.
Can I ask the racist in this thread, troll or otherwise, why do you have to be attracted to the both or either of the leads to see the film?
I'm a lesbian and I'll go see it, and I certainly don't want to fuck the leads.
How do you watch any straight film, when only 1 of the leads is desirable to you.
We won't miss you at the theater, r13. Now run along.
Why the hell does Alex Pettyfer keep getting cast? He's box office poison, audiences don't want to see him, and by all accounts he's a horrible person who is miserable to work with.
He must be a master of the casting couch, that's the only possible answer.
Katharine Hepburn and Joan Crawford were called Box Office Poison, and they both had LONG careers.
Sorry. I'm black and I would rather see Nathan Owens than Mechad Brooks or Lance Gross in this. Lance is not that cute to me.
As for dark or light skin, it's no more of a personal preference than liking blonds (which I can't stand btw) over brunettes. I'm not attracted to pale white men, Asians or Eastern Europeans. Does that make me racist? No. I think it's when you tell OTHER PEOPLE who they should or shouldn't date based on YOUR racial preferences. Some white people here can be pretty crude and nasty about not liking non-white men (or liking them), but in the end, the peen wants what it wants.
I look forward to seeing the movie, but it sounds like it is still on the drawing board.
Nathan Owens or Mechad would be nice, they both have that "pure" quality about them
Alex Pettyfer, is just, no.
Every one of the black actors in this thread are hot! Pettyfer is pretty hot too, but not as hot as any of them.
My vote would be Idris Elba. He is probably too good of an actor for this, though.
Alex Pettyfer, douchebag that he is, is very sexy. However, he has a terrible reputation as an actor.
Boris Kodjoe? I'd crawl over broken glass to lick his shitter. Yes, please.
Does one guy HAVE to be white? Is it really necessary? And I'm white, so don't bother. I'd just like to see them look for the best person, regardless of color.
Matt Bomer and Boris Kodjoe. Many sex scenes. Yes!
Pettyfer is just OK. Daniels really could have picked someone much hotter and who has better teeth. Another overrated Brit.
How about John Boyega from "Attack The Block"? He is a superb Brit actor who would be cool for the role, but he's so talented he may just blow Alex off of the screen, and not in the way that Lee Daniels hopes.
This sounded interesting before I read 'Alex Pettyfer'.
I wouldn't mind watching Cillian Murphy and Eddie Murphy as the two leads.
I'm surprised nobody seems to think this concept is ridiculous. It could work for a short, but a full-length? No.
Some of you talk about the casting as if you're gonna get up and fuck the screen. It's a movie. You don't have to want to swallow the leading man's load to pay to see it.
R13 is just revolting.
Daniels used to be a talent manager and managed the career of Wes Bentley. I wonder if he ever got his hands down his pants. Daniels does love the cream, and so do I as a black gay man. Good for him.
I actually am posting just to comment on how cool it is for a gay director, a big Hollywood director, to comment on how HOT a male actor is. We gays seem to always have to hide our sexuality under a bushel. Why can't we comment on male beauty without seeming lecherous?
Hot is more than just looks. The person has to have some sex appeal, which is much more than skin deep. And the person has to have the acting chops to do it as well. To be honest, I would go see Anthony Mackie. There is something about the way he carries himself that is just very sexy to me.
'Charlene's Angels' would be better, with the three queeniest actors as the angels. Who might they be?
Chris Colfer, Colton Haynes, and Andrew Rannells...with Rosie O'Donnell as Bosley!
I remember Alan Cumming wanting to make a gay version of "Hart to Hart", I hope Daniels can actually make this film.
Mehcad Brooks is hot
Now Id pay good money to see Colton Haynes get his freak on with a black dude on the big screen!
I thought Pettyfer's extreme assholery had made him a pariah in Hollywood. That, and the fact that he can't act.
You're right, R55. Lee Daniels, who's desperate to get into Alex's skidmarked underwear, is the only one who's casting him these days.
I thought it was hilarious that he's owned the rights to a James Hunt project for a couple of years now, but Ron Howard beat him to the punch by making "Rush."
I'm all for Nathan Owens, Jesse Williams, Charles Michael Davis playing the role I would wait outside to see that, but no to Micah Brinks, Lance Gross(his last name fits him), Anthony Mackie, (his face is yuckie), or Idris Elba, yuck I can't stand the snoozer (nose) on Idris so unattractive to me.
I'm paying to see whoever will get me turned on watching them kiss, and a dark skinned man kissing another man on a silver screen would make my stomach turn. Sorry, I will stay right home. Same goes for lesbians I would go see a two cute girly lesbians kissing like Scarlett Johansson or Kerry Washington kissing Ellen Degeneres I would go see. But I would NOT pay to see a Rosie O'Donnell type lesbian kissing a Queen Latifah type lesbian. That is my preference and I give ZERO fucks who disagrees.
Samuel L. Jackson
Would love to see him tell Alex Pettyfer to shut the fuck up when he starts acting like an asshole.
The queen @R13 must jack off to "Mandigo" repeatedly.
YES! I am here for R62 pic. Nathan Owens!!! Now that's my type right there. I pray he gets picked for the role that movie would be a must see for me.
If they give the role to a dark skinned black man I will pay it DUST!
Its probably helpful to consider the psychology that is determining the preference, whatever that preference may be.
If you are a black man who only finds white men with brown skin attractive or if you are a white man who only finds black men with white skin attractive; you just may be a little racist.
As far as "the peen" and its wants. The peen (just like the rest of the body) is controlled by the brain.
[quote]The peen (just like the rest of the body) is controlled by the brain.
Apparently you don't have one or you'd know how ridiculous that statement is.
[quote]I remember Alan Cumming wanting to make a gay version of "Hart to Hart"
Yes, I wonder whatever happened to that project. Last I'd read, they were actually about to start looking for the actor to cast opposite him and then that was it. Never heard another word about it.
[quote]If you are a black man who only finds white men with brown skin attractive or if you are a white man who only finds black men with white skin attractive; you just may be a little racist.
This part of your post makes no sense, R64. You can't force someone to be attracted to someone in the name of political correctness. It's not racism.
If I find someone I'm attracted to, I simply respond to that, I'm not going to go to the history books every time I want to ride someone's ass because you deem it so.
The brain is involved with the peen. Take studies of people's physiological reactions to viewing porn (e.g. different groups of male viewing gay porn).
Saying you don't find entire groups of people unattractive is tantamount to saying "they all look the same".
In your opinion R69.
Some of you doth protest too much.
Look, I'm attracted to Asian and Hispanic men, but because of various stereotypes, I'm completely against dating them. I think it's pretty damn pathetic and I'm trying to work past my issues, but I don't chalk it up to "the dick likes what it likes." Bigotry certain plays a role in who we pursue and who we ignore.
Saying that you won't date a dark skinned black man is completely different from saying you won't date black guys. The difference lies in that you are not lumping all black guys together and you are pointing out a specific characteristic that you don't like. But you do have to be careful and define your definition of dark skinned, since black people come in all shades.
This movie will never happen.
It could happen if Daniels makes if for dirt-cheap like "The Paperboy."
I can count on one hand the amount of redheads to whom I've been attracted, however I don't deem all redheads unattractive. That's the crux.
I love dark skinned men!
This is not about forcing political correctness. I'm talking about the psychology behind why we like what we like. You don't come out of the womb with any skin color preferences. You develop those preferences.
Its ok though. Don't worry yourself. I can see that this is too much for your level of comprehension.
I'm calling ahead and having your local community college reserve a seat for you in a basic human anatomy course.
Oh and Thanks so much for your concern about my genitalia. Not only do have a penis but I also understand how it works. Its 8 inches long and 5 inches in girth. I might even show it to you sometime. I nor my penis have any skin color preferences. We don't believe in racial discrimination and we're unanimous in that.
You haven't changed anyone's mind r80. We will agree to disagree. I don't comprehend you because you aren't making sense. Maybe for yourself but not for me.
No darkies, please. They smell funny and they's greasy.
As I said before; don't worry about it. I can see that as simplistic as this all is; it's much to complicated for you. As far as changing "anyone's mind"; I can only assume that you are referring to yourself and perhaps your imaginary friends. However, my goal was not to change your mind or anyone else's. My goal was to broaden the conversation.
Please Grow the F**k UP!
R83 = Oprah wannabe
r29 I agree. And he has race issues.
Another thread ruined by racist trolls.
26 he was 15 when brokeback was released. maybe that was the reason he wasnt cast.
The black guy should be dark-skinned. Guys with that complexion are pure walking sex.
Pettyfer has an ok face but a slack body, zero charisma and negligible acting skills. Not to mention that everyone he's worked with considers him a huge douchebag.
[quote]a dark skinned man kissing another man on a silver screen would make my stomach turn. Sorry, I will stay right home.
The problem is, much of the country feels the same way. The only chance this film could have is with a Nathan Owens type, someone so beautiful that anyone could respond to him.
But this movie would never happen, anyway.
Lee Daniels is difficult, demanding, indecisive, erratic, unstable, unreliable. It's a miracle his latest film made it to the theaters in time. He is lucky that The Butler made money, but at some point no producer or a studio will want to work with him.
Agree with R90. A very small minority will wants to see an old big burly greasy ass Morris Chestnut. When we have the beautiful alluring Nathan Owens or Charles Michael Davis.
"The problem is, much of the country feels the same way."
No, you're projecting. Denzel isn't light skinned but he is a very popular lead. What kind of idiot are you to say that seeing someone who is dark-skinned in love scene would make your stomach turn. A lot of people would say the same thing about seeing two men of any race kiss. You sound like an old biddy from 1955.
Please don't be a cunt, R93, because most of us don't share your fetish for purple-black skin, any more than we have a thing for albinos.
And Oreo Denzel was a poor example to use.
[quote]Another thread ruined by racist trolls.
I figured it would happen as soon as I saw the blatant trolling on page one. Stupid trolls completely derailing threads with their stupidity and people who actually take the bait and fight with them allowing it to take over the thread.
R92, we get it, u don't like dark skinned men. Not that they would care. I'm sure you're equally unattractive inside and out.
Maybe Reggie Bush can crossover to acting.
So now you're psychic, R96?
Or just psychotic?
R84 You're just so clever and amusing. How ever do you produce such remarkably witty comments?
R90 & R92
You do realize that we're talking about a film about a gay couple. Only a small minority wants to see a film about any gay couple; no matter what their skin color. Gay films barely get distribution in the more conservative areas of the country. Take a look at the box office numbers for Broke Back Mountain. After 19 weeks in the theaters, it grossed 83 million in the US. It opened in 683 theaters at number 9 with 5 million dollars. Distribution was only widened after the critical acclaim and oscar buzz.
“we don’t find out they’re gay until the end of the movie.”
"most of us don't share your fetish for purple-black skin, any more than we have a thing for albinos."
R94 How often do you take this voices in your head poll that you referenced when you said "most of us". Do you do the polling yourself or do you pay an independent polling company. Please elaborate on your reference to Denzel Washington as an "oreo". Washington is a black man with dark skin who has been a very successful box office draw. End of story.
Who are all these self hating negros dissing dark skinned men? If you don't like,don't go see it- who cares if black men are not your preference? I guarantee you that most of the people disparaging dark skinned black men are blue black themselves....
Interesting possibility, r102. No, I'm not psychic, r98, and I think you're projecting your psychosis onto others. Racism is the worst kind of ugly and you reek of it.
Daniels is such a sad old snowqueen.
And the bigot troll needs to be murdered.
Reggie Bush.... *pukes in my mouth* too dark. Nothing against any dark skinned men I just don't want to see them naked having gay sex or any sex for that matter in movies or tv. They can save that for BET because I don't watch that channel.
I don't like my meat burnt. I like it pink (David Gandy and Matt Bomer) to medium rare (Denzel Washington and Charles Michael Davis complexion) no darker.
[quote]No, you're projecting. Denzel isn't light skinned but he is a very popular lead.
He's not really dark-skinned either. I'd consider him in-between.
I'm a snow queen. I love white meat, especially white meat attached to guys with black hair and ice blue eyes. And they love plowing my tight mocha bubble butt. I haven't had a black guy in years, but I'd spread for Nathan Owens in a sec.
Yes, R107, but are you a Snowqueen ICEDRAGON?
[quote]The problem is, much of the country feels the same way. The only chance this film could have is with a Nathan Owens type, someone so beautiful that anyone could respond to him.
No, most of the country doesn't feel the same way, troll. And Denzel is considered light-skinned now?
