Kind of hard to explain how happy I am about this photo.
"It’s recently come to my attention that we are among birds."
Mary J Blige + Sam Smith?! Excuse us while we tear up…
This punched me right in the soul.
“I think comedy has become more prevalent in society as a legitimate form of expression. I don’t think of [Broad City] having a political platform, as in writing on the Elections, but like living a certain politic, [saying] just like dudes we want to just fuck people sometimes, and we have gay friends, and we have friends of different colors. Just living it, not saying or selling it, but representing it. Amy Poehler is a perfect example. She uses who she is and her opinions about issues and vocalizes it.”
I love these two more than anything.
@gingerscott - @waterslicer has shown me something very important…
Cannot. Goddamn. Wait.
'Orphan Black' fandom now heading into 'Lost' levels of obsession.
Meet OUT’s June/July cover boy. You may also know him as Matt Bomer. You may now attempt to go about your Monday like nothing interesting has happened, but you will be so, so wrong.
Here’s an excerpt from my cover story:
Bomer, whom Murphy had cast in guest roles on Glee (he played Darren Criss’s older brother) and The New Normal (as Andrew Rannells’s ostentatious ex-boyfriend), campaigned aggressively to play Felix. “Matt, out of everybody, fought the hardest for it,” Murphy tells Out. “It was that same passion that I had used to persuade Larry Kramer to give me the rights to the play.”
Murphy told Kramer they’d found their Felix. “I said, ‘I really believe in Matt Bomer.’ And Larry said, ‘But he’s so beautiful! Is he too beautiful?’”
Murphy arranged a meeting between the two men. “I was pretty starstruck,” Bomer says. “It was like meeting one of the Beatles. He was so central to my understanding and development. We talked for a really long time.” Kramer emailed Murphy immediately after: “He’s the one.”
Because Bomer knew the part would require a production break during which he would have to lose a substantial amount of weight—40 pounds—part of his original lobbying effort for the role was extensive, specific research into how, in 1984, a man dying of AIDS would see his body change. His transformation— especially in contrast to Ned and Felix’s vigorous sex scenes earlier in the movie—is a painfully, hauntingly accurate time capsule.
“I think Matt felt the ghosts,” Murphy says. “I think he felt all the shame and humiliation and degradation of all those brothers who have died of AIDS. It was a very beautiful, spiritual thing to witness.”
Filming such demanding material over the course of five months employed Bomer’s years of classical training, and it took him back to that wide-eyed 14-year-old who first read The Normal Heart. “You’re really lucky as an artist if you get a role that changes you as a person,” Bomer, now 36, says earnestly, on the brink of tears. “It taught me how to access myself on a completely different level as an artist. And it blew my mind in terms of the level of unconditional love between Ned and Felix—my goodness, if these people could incorporate this into their lives, under their circumstances, why can’t I?”
My full interview with Bomer, some adorable outtakes and more AMAZING photos will be up next week. In the meantime, as always, feel free to hit my ask box with questions/queries/exclamation points.
^^^ get excited about this.
Well now I’m crying… On Muni.
X-Men: Days of Future Past | Trailer 3
This trailer needs 75 percent more Jennifer Lawrence and 100 percent more Ellen Page. But other than that I’m stoked.
