is it no longer possible to have a day without LMM's name being mentioned?

He's just getting started.

Can either of them dance?

by Anonymousreply 612/21/2018

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

by Anonymousreply 712/21/2018

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?

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...

by Anonymousreply 1803/02/2019

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.

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

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.

by Anonymousreply 3503/14/2019

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.

So far I’m bored and annoyed. It’s pretentious.

Rockwell just doesn't have the sex appeal like Scheider had.

by Anonymousreply 5304/09/2019

And Scheider was much sexier than Fosse.

Is this the OFFICIAL thread?

Lin Manuel Miranda is broadcasting on Periscope during the commercial break

Not casting Sam Rockwell's wife(?) Leslie Bibb as young Jessica Lange is a missed opportunity.

Father Fosse -- Norwegian Catholic.

Jesus, does Miranda never sit down and shut up?

by Anonymousreply 5804/09/2019

I've been watching Fosse and Verdon's dance routine "Who's Got The Pain?" from "Damn Yankees." God, they were amazing.

by Anonymousreply 5904/09/2019

That was Paul Reiser? Yeesh.

by Anonymousreply 6004/09/2019

It's hard to take any of you guys seriously when you say, "Fosse was gay or bi." He was a notorious pussy hound.

How do you make Bob Fosse boring?

This is not very good.

Too bad All that Jazz isn’t streaming somewhere.

Sam Rockwell gives me the creeps.

r61, it was one poster claiming that, not the whole site, so quit it with the "you guys" crap

Follow R59's lead. You won't go wrong.

I usually find Michelle Williams really stiff, emotionless and dead in the eyes, but I'm liking her as Gwen. She has a nice spark.

by Anonymousreply 6604/09/2019

Yeah, r63. For me, All That Jazz said it all about Fosse. And Scheider was brilliant and you were completely drawn to his version of Fosse.

I just want to run from Rockwell. No sexual appeal, no playfulness.

Is Jack Cole mentioned?

Sam's hair is all shaved and styled for the movie, people. Jeez Louise.

After watching Episode 1, and even being a major SR fan, I'm thinking his Fosse is simply a toned-down version of his Chuck Barris, complete with "Sam Rockwell dance turns" and continual cheating on his Main Squeeze.

by Anonymousreply 7304/10/2019

Maybe he will get better in the next episode. He seems really lost.
