It doesn't matter; Denzel will warn them not to do any kissing scenes.
R2 it's an action movie casting, he's too what's the word.... starts with a e rhymes with trim-it.
If Lee Daniels was any kind of genius. he would cast Jarod Joseph, who is straight as a line, but can act the fuck out of a gay role. Look what he did in that show "The L.A. Complex" everyone kept calling him the young gay Obama lol. His character turned me on!!!
Well since three of your choices are just basically lighter skinned, sharper featured guys who look mixed I'll go with Charles Davis....at least he looks more like a typical African-American.
How 'bout a guy who looks like this....now THAT would be hot!
He's even got the anal beads ready.
R11 your joking right? I put that name in google and had to wipe down my screen with Lysol. He has what I call a ratface, he could play splinter in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but not a sexy actor as Alex Pettyfer's lover. Sowry!
T.I. said he will never do a gay role in an interview. Let google be your friend. I vote for Charles Michael Davis.
T.I. is one down low piece of trash. Thus the protestations.
T.I. would create huge buzz and box office. I think he would consider it in light of Daniels' success and the opportunity to be a true actor instead of just a rapper who is periodically acting.
No rapper who makes their primary living off being a "thug" is going to emasculate themselves for a gay role with Lee Butler. T.I. is not doing that. His fan base would vanish the moment it releases.
The guy will be an attractive model like Nathan Owens or clean looking good actor like Charles Michael Davis or Jarod Joseph.
God, drop TI, we don't need or want some idiot that has vowed never to touch a gay role. You sound pathetic hoping that just maybe enough prestige can convince him to suffer through his homophobia and degrade himself by playing gay. Fuck him, and fuck you for wanting it.
I can't believe Daniels is trying to pursue this. Pettyfer must be a clever little thing in toying with gay men, he has Lee completely dickatamized.
NO DARK SKINNED men for this role I will boycott this if they cast a dark skinned man for this. Hollywood does not want to see Reggie Bush or Morris Chestnut greasy strong faces sexing out with Alex Pettyfer. The movie would bomb big time.
Nathan Owens and Alex Pettyfer would dominate at the box office.
Derek Luke or Michael B Jordan. Both hot, both excellent actors.
I thought Texas Instruments was in prison.
I would drink Nathan Owens bath water! That man is fine as hell!
The black role usually goes to Morgan Freeman
is this movie still going to happen?
Doubt it. Look at all the trouble they had trying to make a film out of the gay interracial love/sports novel The Dreyfus Affair. It's been 20 years and they have yet to get financing.
This project will never see the light of day.
I wouldn't see it anyway because I hate Pettyfer. He's a cunt and not that good looking plus he smokes. If they got a nicer and hotter white guy then I'd watch.
Alex Pettyfer is white?
Shemar Moore of course, who else?

Pettyfer is not my cup of tea when it comes to white guys either.
But I will pay a lot of money to see Nathan Owens in ANYTHING, including opposite Pettyfer. He is probably the most handsome man on the planet and he should be on the big screen.
OP I don't get it, in what way are Jesse Williams, Jarod Joseph, Nathan Owens black?
r67, I know Nathan Owens considers himself black, he's black and white Puerto Rican. I bet the other two guys identify as black as well.
Sure R68 I identify as part of the small minority with above average intelligence. It is ludicrous, just because I think I am one thing, does not make me that...Identity politics gone mad.
These guys are all beautiful, but how predictable to try to get a light-skinned partially black guy. He can't be too black, I guess.
Also, Daniels talked up this film a year ago and nothing's progressed. I'm pretty sure studios can't support making it because it won't lock into any demographics.
Jarod Joseph is hot, bro!
r67, they identify as Black, so what's your point, dude?
Q: In The LA Complex you play a gay lawyer. Did you have any reservations about taking this role?
JJ: My immediate thoughts were that of excitement. I worked extensively on it for two days straight; I wanted to kill the taping because I saw it as a monumental opportunity to be a part of something significant in the black community -- if only through film. I was up to the task and had zero reservations. Brothers still reach out to me to this day commending what the role stood for. It's the most important work I've done.
Aside from hot daddy Todd Farmer, Edrick Browne was the finest man in "Drive Angry". This is one fine man who would melt the screen with Alex P.
Boris Kodjoe FTW.
Thread is MOTHER FUCKIN'closed.
How about the dudes on "Hit the Floor?"
In what movie?
I think Alex Pettyfer and Nathan Owens would have good chemistry. Seriously!
