I saw him somewhere back in the early 90s - at some gay group - and I can say he looked even hotter in person that he did on tv.%0D\
Your bringing him up OP makes me curious as to what he looks like now and what he''s doing.
Not to be confused with Jim Dale who is creating quite a stir on THEATRE GOSSIP #59.%0D\
Or James Badge Dale from AMC''s cancelled RUBICON and the HBO miniseries THE PACIFIC.
By the way, did you know that James Badge Dale%0D\
is the offspring of actress Anita Morris (who sang A CALL TO THE VATICAN in the original Bway production of NINE) and choreographer-dancer Grover Dale?
Ooh, nice puffy pink tits on Dale.%0D\
He''s very handsome, perhaps even a little too handsome... Hanging out with him would be like spending time with a Ken doll.
About a decade ago he was stunning. Like in the 99.9th percentile of gay men. \
Now he''s just boyishly cute.\
Apparently major drug or alcohol issues, about five years ago he fell down the stairs at some party in Chelsea while sossed and broke every bone in his body.
R9''s comment made me realize that he could be considered the gay Luke Wilson, who also started off attractive with luxuriant dark hair, striking blue eyes, and chiseled jaw, and then began to degrade precipitously. I personally think Dale still looks great, but your mileage may vary...
He should have done the smart thing and married an A-gay when he had the chance.
Sorry OP. I meant James Badge Dale, as R5 said. He''s a total douchebag. I''ll try to read more carefully before I defame someone next time.
R1, sobering up on Christmas Day
I''m in the minority, but I loved Rubicon and wish it was still airing. The Pacific was great too.
Now wait a minute, who are we talking about?
The Eagle Scout gay activist.%0D
I thought we were talking about James Badge Dale, too, OP, but your James Dale is much, much hotter. Thank you.
I saw him speak at an event years ago, and he was GORGEOUS in person
He always looks so sad and martyred though in a romantic way. What does he do for a living?
More info on James Badge Dale, please.
Badge Dale is set to co-star with Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan in the new Steve McQueen film, Shame. I''ve read the script, and it''s very edgy. Fassbender is the lead, but Dale''s star definitely appears to be on the rise (alledged douchebaggery notwithstanding).
I know I seem to be the only one who likes this guy, but I think he's hot.
I went to RU with him. Talk about a transformation. Back then he was kinda chunky, bad skin, lots of black eye liner and a fembot.
R25, I take it you're not referring to James badge dale the actor, but the other guy. (?) Somebody needs to start a Badge Dale thread.
R25 James Dale, the guy that sued the Boy Scouts.
He's in the news again.
Former Eagle Scout James Dale is (kind of) in the news again as the Boy Scouts of America are 'revisiting' their policy of not allowing out gays to be members.
I remember being so proud of him for taking on the public battle back in the 90s. His case opened a new front on battle for the equality. And because of that he became sort of a hero to me back then for being one of only a handful of pioneering gays getting regular press.
I hope the Boy Scouts come to their senses and stop prohibiting gay people from participating.
Mostly I don't give a crap about the Scouts, but I seriously want to see James Dale back in his uniform...with the short shorts.
I wish James had been the one to present the GLAAD award to Anderson Cooper instead of Madonna. I would seriously like to see Mr. Dale wearing that same outfit she did.
