Morning Video: Timothee Chalamet got razor burn during make-out scenes with co-star Armie Hammer

On-screen lovers Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet paid a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week revealed that their very first rehearsal for the superb coming-of-age drama Call Me by Your Name was an unforgettable “icebreaker” that included a passionate roll in the hay. BONUS VIDEO: Hammer was on CBS’s The Late Late Show last night and ended up dancing with host James Corden.

3 Remarks

  1. I was interested in watching this movie until I saw the guys on Ellen. Both the leads are straight? Really? A love story between two gay men, and the couldn’t find any gay actors that could play the roles? This is just a straight/gay version of doing “Black-Face”.

  2. Not only did Tim get razor burns, he and Armie must’ve gotten grass burns after their rehearsal scene was finished. LOL!

  3. @Charlie, Sorry Charlie, but your comment about this being just a straight/gay version of doing “Black-Face” is totally off and not the same thing.

    Openly gay and closeted gay actors/actress have been playing straight roles for years are have been doing a great job of it. Also, straight actors/actresses have been playing LGBT roles and have been doing a great job of it. It’s called acting. Let’s not restrict straight or LGBT actors/actresses and limiting the roles they can play.

    Here are samples of LGBT actors/actresses in iconic straight roles.

    Matt Bomer as Neal Caffrey (White Collar)
    Neil Patrick Harry as Barney Stinson (How I Met Your Mother)
    Kristian Nairn as Hodor (Game of Thrones)
    Jane Lynch as Paula (The 40 Year Old Virgin)
    Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling (Silence of the Lambs)
    Jim Parsons as Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory)
    David Hyde Pierce as Niles Crane (Frasier)
    Ellen Page as Juno (Juno)
    Jonathan Groff as Jesse St. James (Glee)
    Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes (Sex in the City)
    Portia de Rossi as Lindsay Bluth Funke (Arrested Development)
    Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield (Prison Break)
    Ian McKellan in many straight roles (throughout career)
    T. R. Knight as Dr. George O’Malley (Grey’s Anatomy)
    Robert Reed as Mike Brady (The Brady Bunch)
    Meredith Baxter as Elyse Keaton (Family Ties)
    Russell Tovey as George Sands (Being Human)
    Richard Chamberlain in many straight roles (throughout career)
    Lily Tomlin as Vivian Jaffe (I Heart Huckabees)
    Wanda Sykes as Biggie Shorty (Pootie Tang)
    Victor Garber as Thomas Andrews (Titanic)

    Your philosophy of restricting roles based on LBGT vs. non-LGBT could put a lot of LGBT out of work if they are not allowed to play straight roles like straight people can play LGBT roles. It’s called acting. You don’t have to sexually attracted to the person you are acting with. Just have good chemistry on screen.

    And if I was a gay actor and I tried out for the part of Abe Lincoln, or some other straight famous person, am I to be denied the role because I wasn’t straight? I wouldn’t care for that.

    Sorry, but your reasoning is flawed and restricting and it is not the same as a white actor playing a black character. That’s an entirely different thing.
