Morning Man Classic: Paul Michael Glaser!

Today Paul Michael Glaser’s 76th birthday so I want to pay tribute to one of my early crushes in life.

My oldest brother had a color TV in his room and would let me watch shows with him like Starsky & Hutch, Baretta and Charlie’s Angels. The rest of the time I’d have to share the black and white TV with the rest of the kids in the living room.

Imagine!

With his curly black hair, beautiful blue eyes, hairy chest and tight jeans, I could not keep my eyes off Det. Dave Starsky. He and Det. Ken “Hutch” Hutchinson (David Soul) were two streetwise cops who busted criminals in their red-and-white Ford Torino with the help of police snitch called Huggy Bear.

Paul once said in an interview: “I think between David’s and my chemistry and the notion of a buddy show, which I think, if I’m not mistaken, was the first of its kind on television…we had “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” as a feature, but we hadn’t seen that kind of pairing,… male bonding,.. whatever you want to call it in television. So this was kind of a first.”

Pre-TV fame, he appeared on Broadway in Butterflies Are Free then made his film debut playing Perchik in 1971′s movie version of Fiddler on the Roof.

After Starsky & Hutch, he directed such films as The Running Man starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Cutting Edge, and The Air Up There starring Kevin Bacon. He also directed episodes of several well-known TV series, including Miami Vice, Robbery Homicide Division and Judging Amy.

These days, Paul mostly writes and directs and continues his activism in the fight against Pediatric AIDS after losing his wife Elizabeth and their daughter to the disease. David still acts including a recent guest spot on Grace & Frankie.

Showtune Sunday: From Barrowman to Bassey, here are six fabulous renditions of ‘I Am What I Am’

This is one of my all-time favorite gay anthems.

The fabulous I Am What I Am is a song originally introduced in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical La Cage aux Folles and is the finale number of the musical’s first act.

The song was composed in 1983 by Jerry Herman. It was later released as a single by Gloria Gaynor in 1983 and went on to become one of the singer’s best known songs.

A club hit in America, Gaynor’s version of was a hit throughout Europe and eventually became a gay anthem.

The great Shirley Bassey recorded the song for her 1984 album I Am What I Am.

Enjoy these versions and vote for your favorite!

Morning Man Classic: Steve McQueen!


http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images/pic/72/039_70376~Steve-McQueen-Posters.jpgSteve McQueen, the ruggedly handsome star of The Great Escape, The Magnificent Seven, Papillon, The Sand Pebbles,  Bullitt, The Getaway, The Thomas Crown Affair and many other films, was born 89 years ago today.

McQueen, in my opinion, was one of a kind and one of the sexiest men to ever grace the big screen.

He was just 50 when he died in 1980 after developing several large abdominal tumors. Thank God for the Turner Classic Movies Film Festival which is where in recent years I’ve seen so many McQueen films on the big screen.

Kathy Griffin: The “CBS Sunday Morning” profile


In May 2017 Kathy Griffin’s life turned upside-down after the release of a photo of her holding what appeared to be the severed head of President Donald Trump – a joke that became anything but. Her career took a hit, she received death threats, and she found herself under investigation for conspiracy to assassinate the president. But while many people might have taken the opportunity to go into early retirement, Griffin did not. She talks with Luke Burbank about the personal and professional consequences she faced, and why she would do it over again.

Richard E Grant: Julianne Moore fired from “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” over wanting to wear fat suit and fake nose

We all know by now that Julianne Moore had originally been cast as real-life literary forger Lee Israel in the film Can You Ever Forgive Me?

She was fired from the project two days before filming was due to begin. Melissa McCarthy ended up replacing her and earning a well-deserved Oscar nomination.

Richard E. Grant, Oscar nominated for the his performance in the film, had spilled the tea on why Moore was axed:

“Julianne Moore wanted to wear a fat suit and a false nose to play Lee Israel and (original director) Nicole Holofcener said ‘you’re not going to do that’,” Grant told an Advertising Week Europe event in central London.

According to The Independent he also said: “The original cast was going to be directed by Bob Balaban with Helena Bonham Carter and Sam Rockwell playing my part. Fast forward 10 years and then it was going to be Julianne Moore and Chris O’Dowd and then Nicole Holofcener, the co-screenwriter, fired Julianne Moore two days before they started shooting over creative differences and then Melissa McCarthy’s husband, who had been in the previous version and still played the same part, gave her the script to read and then she came on board and then I got cast so it was third time lucky for me otherwise I wouldn’t be here.”

Del Shores shared “perfect day” with Olivia Newton-John: “She looks amazing, is doing great”

View this post on Instagram

Ever have one of those just perfect days? Today was one for me. I drove up the coast to have lunch and spend the afternoon with my dear friend Olivia. She looks amazing, is doing great, and cooked me a delicious lunch. We just sat, traded stories, laughed so much and caught up on family, friends and life! Then her sweet daughter Chloe came by and the reunion got even better! While I was there, Olivia got the call from her publicist telling her that her new book #dontstopbeleavin’ hit #12 today on the New York Times Best Seller list. She signed my book, gave me the CDS of the audio version. On my way back to LA, I was able to listen to the first seven chapters. IT IS AMAZING, y’all. Inspirational, funny, touching and truly feels like Olivia just talking to you! Get the book, get the audio version and celebrate the amazing life and career of the very special Olivia Newton-John! #olivianewtonjohn #delshores #sordidlives

Matt Bomer guests on “Will & Grace” again tonight – taking over show’s Instagram feed later today

View this post on Instagram

Choosing a favorite episode of @nbcwillandgrace is a little bit like choosing a favorite finger- I appreciate ‘em all. But I have to say, tonight’s episode was my favorite that I got to be a part of this season. Not only did I get to work with this legendary cast- they threw the brilliant @_schwim_ #davidschwimmer into the mix. Honestly, it was all a little too much- but I soldiered through. To help me process this experience, I’ll be taking over the @nbcwillandgrace Instagram feed sometime today (probably around 530 pm PST/ 830 pm EST, but don’t hold me to it.)I will also try to explain the Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice realness going on in the first picture. Lastly: things seem to be going pretty well for Will and McCoy- is it time to give them a ship name? McWill? Wicoy? Share them thoughts!
