Supporting cast: Ann Reinking! Chita! Liza! Paddy Chayefsky (wtf?) Hal Prince! Joel Grey! Shirley MacLaine!

LMM is like a bad rash.

by Anonymousreply 812/21/2018

Chayefsky was Fosse's best friend. They met in 1959 and bonded over baseball. Fosse tap danced at Chayevsky's funeral in 1981.

Aren't there more than one threads on this series already ongoing?

Regardless, I like you r11. I assume you're following the Ann Miller thread?

Will Fosse/Verdon be PoC rappers ?

Will they cover Fosse’s sexual abuses and harassment?

He literally danced on his grave?

Judge for yourself, r6!

Sam's thinning combover makes it unwatchable.

by Anonymousreply 1703/02/2019

Gwen had a granny voice, even as a young'un. Never cared for her speaking/singing voice. Her dancing, on the other hand...

Another yawn-inducing str8 washing of a non-hetero man. Yawn again. He was a manly he-man hetero lady killer I tell you!!!!!

R19 lol dude no one has seen the whole thing yet.

by Anonymousreply 2003/02/2019

I don't think Fosse was gay. He was always fucking around with women.

by Anonymousreply 2103/02/2019

I didn't say he was gay, r21. I said he was not straight.

How do you know?

R22 are you one of those insufferable 'bi erasure' people that has infested the Internet lately?

It's like you really get me, r24.

All I care about is, who gets to play Irene Ryan?

Bob Fosse HAD a thinning comb-over IRL, hon.

by Anonymousreply 2803/14/2019

Bob's thinning combover was blondish-red in hue and blended with his skin color, so it wasn't as distracting as Sam's dark brown combover.

by Anonymousreply 2903/14/2019

I have a friend who is going to be in this as Joan McCracken.

by Anonymousreply 3003/14/2019

Maybe he was overcompensating, R21.

by Anonymousreply 3103/14/2019

No matter how you slice it, Bob Fosse was NOT a physically attractive man in the 1970s. He was losing his hair, coming it over unattractively, and he dressed terribly. All the constant chain smoking and the alcohol and drugs were doing a terrible number on his skin. And despite his lifetime of dancing, his body did not look very attractive at this point in time either. Plus he dressed for shit.

by Anonymousreply 3203/14/2019

More of Fosse in the 1970s.

by Anonymousreply 3303/14/2019

More of Fosse in the 1970s. Keep in mind he was not even fifty when this photo was taken.

by Anonymousreply 3403/14/2019

It's funny because Fosse was hot when he worked for MGM. But it's as if his skankiness burned all the attractiveness out of him as he aged. That's a rough 40s.

There's no one listed on IMDb playing Roy Scheider though I assume they are going to cover All That Jazz.

Only in the world of DL can a notorious womanizer be considered secretly gay or bisexual.

Homely but talented to the point of revolutionary. Which would you choose?
