This thread is so 2005.
|by helpful||reply 5||07/27/2013|
In The Normal Heart Raul stripped down to the altogether for one scene and the tbcjscpctscroc was on full display for the audience to see. Hundreds of people saw, and can verify that he is, indeed, cut.
Raul's parents are Cuban but he was born in Wilmington, Delaware. In the US in 1970, babies were routinely circumcised, regardless of the religious affiliation of the parents.

Why does this thread not come up when I type in Raul Esparza in the "find thread" box?
All the other threads about him come up
|by helpful||reply 8||07/28/2013|
Does anyone detect such a sense of Sadness to him? Company was absolutely his best Perfomance. Maybe cause the character was so close to Raul. I Heard he was crying at the ending song finale after the Times Article came out.

SVU started filming last week, r7.
r8, I think that's because until you posted it, "Esparza" wasn't anywhere in this thread, so DL's miserable excuse for a search feature couldn't find it. But the thread does show up when you just search "raul". It's just not at the top because DL's miserable excuse for a search feature doesn't know how to put results in any kind of order.

Something to do with the Search engines.Even if you type in Raul Esparza Data Lounge in google, it does the same thing.

When you go to post a reply, r18, you will see, below the box where you type your message, another, smaller box that says "Url:". Copy whatever link you want to post and paste it in that box. Then your link will post at the bottom of your message after you click "save post".
Raul won't be in every episode, that's simply not their format. Not every story ends in a courtroom trial. Besides, he's got to have time off to go be sleazy and smarmy (if short a few feet of intestines, and perhaps a kidney) on Hannibal!
|by helpful||reply 19||07/29/2013|
Thanks! R19 I will try it
I like Raul best as Barba. Dr Chilton kind of creepy but kind of interesting.

Okay Everyone talks about Raul's sexy eyes but something about his Lips just turn me on so much

Raul and Michele Esparza together last Wednesday at "Friends in Deed" event.
So nice to see him supportive of her. (Michele is Program Manager for Friends in Deed) who knows whether they are really divorced or not but I can understand why they may say they are divorced even if they are not. It shuts everybody up when everybody wonders why they are still together.

Know What? I am jealous of Raul and Michele's relationship. Even if there are obvious issues.
I would love to have a "Michele" who still stands by me and would still be there for me after everything Raul has put her thru.
and I would love to have a "Raul" who appreciates the fact that she stood by him and considers her his "best friend"
They still have each other after all this time,whether they be still married or not.

Wow, why are you such a bitch, r58? Perfectly reasonable for Raul to have a home in Miami, the place where he grew up and where his parents still live. Plus, someone asked if it was really him tweeting and the webmaster said this:

Hahaha! You must be new to DL for you to call THAT “bitchy”, so I’ll cut you some slack.
All you did was prove what I said all along. Raul doesn’t participate in social media. He (reluctantly) gives pictures to his webmaster (the “Karen & Becky” referred to in your post) along with any comments or captions and they are the ones who do the posting. He doesn’t see the postings or read any of the responses.
He considers Miami his cultural home, but he doesn’t own any property there. His parents do, but Raul can't quite afford it yet.

Things are changing. He's almost 43 and just got two important roles on TV. He's being more open with the Broadway.com videos over the last couple of years, the in-depth interviews and now the instagram pics and tweets. He knows what he's doing and I doubt he's doing it "reluctantly".

Tonight they showed an old episode (Meloni was on it) and, melodramatic as it was (it was about a toxin given to military men that made them crazy), it made me nostalgic for some of those players--not only Meloni, but Belzer--even awful Fred Thompson had some gusto, spouting his conservative ideology.

Things are really quiet here. In the old days we needed a new thread almost every month, and I understand. Papi's not on Broadway, he's being wasted on SVU (it's a chore to watch that thing) and he got shot in the face in Hannibal. At least he must be happy with the money.
But I actually think he's more popular than before, just not with us DL/theatre gays, you just have to look at twitter an tumblr. I thought I had seen every Papi photo there is, but the bitches on tumblr managed to even get a hold of his yearbook pics.
I'm surprised that with all the new interest for Raul, new tublr/twitter/fb fans haven't found their way to these threads. The new threads are no match to the gossip of the old ones.

Well, he went to the invited dress and shmoozed with Lin-Manuel Miranda, so presumably he's feeling OK with the whole thing.

Remember when his fuck-piece Lee Pace got him a job on that wretched saccharine cesspit known as Pushing Daisies, where he was supposed to have an arc as Kristin Chenoweth's love interest, but his ego was so bad that she complained to producers, and they unceremoniously dumped him at the unemployment office?
Remember when Leap of Faith crashed and burned and producers blamed La Cerda Cubano for costing everyone their jobs because he was so grotesquely porcine and unattractive that putting his image on marketing instantly caused presales to plummet?

I'm very sorry, r192, that you fell for the lies perpetrated by that blovated sack of shit, Michael Riedel. He made up that entire story because he hates Raul (and it's mutual) and he knows Raul is sensitive about his weight. R189 is just the sort of imbecile to believe Riedel's filth.

Lol, ok. I mean I don't really care either way, but it's clear you do. However he does look pretty chubby in all his pictures..

That's a pic from 2006.
He's heavier today, but wasn't during LOF. R193 is right about everything. All of that was talked about here and on the theatre gossip thread at the time.
But whatever. It's obvious that you're just trolling, trollina.
|by helpful||reply 195||07/20/2014|
If any of you so-called "fans" really cared about him, you'd tell your Puffy-Faced Cuban Pig God to embrace his expansionist waistline and stop pursuing leading roles. What a tragedy that his ego will not allow him to do character roles; his hooked nose and throaty, belch-singing is perfect for following in Nathan Lane's footsteps. Maybe by playing second banana, he'll finally win that Tony? ;)

Or he could play all the daughters in "The House of Bernarda Alba" (which Chita did in Los Angeles some years ago).

From the theatre thread:
I've give you one and only big catch - DL favorite Papi - Raul Esparza. About 7 or 8 years ago met him at a hotel bar and had no idea who he was. What a nice guy I think he liked the fact I didn't know his "work" Sat there and drank and talked for a couple of hours. It was just after his divorce and he was very genuine about his "conflict" Talked about us both thinking we were bi. Long story longer ended up going to my room that night. He was a caring, passionate, thorough lover. Furry in all the right spots, nice hard and very sensitive nipples. Cock isn't huge, but nice and thick. Total versatile. Stayed the whole night and left in the AM. Saw him one other time before I left NY, and it was just the same. Bartender had to tell me who he was. Best one (OK two) nighter EVAH!!!!!!!!!
