Lunch Break Video: Tuc Watkins and Bruce Campbell hook up on “Beggars and Choosers”

Beggars and Choosers tv show photo Let me start off here with a programming note: The daily videos are reverting back to a more random selection rather than themed days with the exceptions of Meryl Mondays, I Love Lucy Fridays and Showtune Sundays.

This gives me more freedom to just share just about anything from the treasure trove of stuff out there that I think you will find interesting and entertaining.

Today I present to you a pair of scenes from one of my all-time favorite shows: Beggars and Choosers, a brilliant tongue-in-cheek look at network television that aired for two seasons on Showtime from 1999 to 2001.

The cast was first-rate and included Tuc Watkins of One Life to Live and Desperate Housewives fame, Charlotte Ross who went on to appear on NYPD Blue and now Glee, Brian Kerwin now on One Life to Live, Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame, and the adorable William McNamara who I fell in love with when he starred in Doing Time on Maple Drive and Stealing Home.

These scenes focus on Tuc’s character, a gay network executive named Malcolm Laffley. He finds Jack, the macho star of one of his shows, Mountain Man, dropping in on him at home unexpectedly.

Jack (played by Bruce Campbell who currently stars in Burn Notice) is an infamous skirt chaser. Not surprisingly, this mountain man skirt chaser is actually gay and has the hots for Malcolm.

Sadly, the video quality is not the best but Beggars and Choosers has never been released on DVD so this is as good as it gets. Still, Tuc gets more same-sex action here than he ever has on Desperate Housewives!

Here’s what happens:

3 Remarks

  1. I loved this show, it was a shame when they cancelled it. I wish they would release it on DVD that is one set I would seriously buy!

  2. i would buy a DVD set in less than a heartbeat!!!

  3. The first season was supposed to have been released in January, 2006. I had spoken to Tuc Watkins about six months earlier, he said he was scheduled to do some commentary, other stars of the show had already done theirs (he mentioned having spoken to Brian Kerwin and Charlotte Ross). The official line from Buena Vista (the DVD-to-be distributor) for halting was to wait for the saturation of TV DVDs to lessen, making some comment about how the “shelves of DVDs at Target are sagging.
