Tuesday Morning Man: Milan Neil Amin-Smith!

Today is British violinist Milan Neil Amin-Smith’s 27th birthday and the occasion comes at a time of great change in his life. Earlier this month, Neil surprised many when he announced he was leaving the electronic-classical group Clean Bandit who became instant sensations with the Grammy Award-winning single Rather Be. “It was a decision that took me a very long time to reach but it is the right one. So many people have made these last four years quite unbelievable and I am so thankful for it all,” he wrote in an Instagram post. He was in a high-profile romantic relationship last year with Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander.

Matt Bomer did some singing on ‘Live With Kelly’

Matt Bomer is quickly proving he can do it all. He’s convincing as a stripper (Magic Mike), a con man (White Collar), as assassin (The Nice Guys), a sort of vampire (American Horror Story: Hotel) and a 1930s studio executive (The Last Tycoon).

But what none of those television or film roles showcased was the superb song and dance skills of the openly gay actor who last year earned an Emmy nomination for his heartbreaking performance in the AIDS drama The Normal Heart.

On the Halloween-themed episode of Live With Kelly today, Bomer joined host Kelly Ripa and guest co-host Jerry O’Connell in the opening number of a re-imagined version of the smash Broadway musical Hamilton.

The number is a tribute to the many costumes Ripa has worn in the past before she emerges as, you guessed it, Alexander Hamilton.

Halloween Day Video: A scary Bette Midler sings “I Put a Spell on You” in “Hocus Pocus” seems like the perfect time to revisit this little gem of a movie: 1993′s Hocus Pocus which stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as three sisters – who also happen to be witches!

They return to Earth after 300 years and it is Halloween night. People assume they are in costume and don’t realize the real agenda of this evil but very funny trio led by Midler’s Winifred (Don’t ya just love the teeth?).

Monday Morning Man: Christopher McDaniel!

Since yesterday was Christopher McDaniel’s 36th birthday, it seemed like a good time to feature a man who was one of the very first interviews on this site. Chris got a lot of attention at the 2009 Academy Awards when he was a distractedly handsome trophy presenter and he dished with me after about Daniel Craig, Hugh Jackman and others. As of 2016, Chris has starred in over 25 national commercials, multiple soap operas, TV shows and films.

My night as a hippie at Fred & Jason’s Halloweenie

Had such a fun and groovy time at Fred & Jason’s 11th annual Halloweenie on Friday night dressed up as a 1960s hippie with my pal Jim Key. I spent part of the night quite jealous of Jim’s luxurious blond wig and suggested he could go as Britney Spears next year. Ran into Prop 8 plaintiffs Jeff Zarillo and Paul Katami, the handsome Zarian brothers Lawrence and Gregory, a vest wearing but otherwise shirtless Morning Man alum Trevor LaPaglia and the fabulous Craig Ramsay and Brian Liberati (Bravo Newlyweds: The First Year) who were a perfect Siegfried & Roy. This year’s edition was held at the spacious California Science Center for the first time and the dance floor was located under the space shuttle Endeavor!. This is a party with a purpose that benefitted the very worthy programs of Gay Men’s Chorus Los Angeles including the Alive Music Project, and the It Gets Better tour.

Snapped! Hillary Clinton was at LGBTQ rally today!

The overflow crowd outside @HillaryClinton's #LGBTQ rally need not worry — Hillary wouldn't let them down! After her speech she greeted those who couldn't get in because of space. Their reaction shows just how fired up our community is about electing Hillary Clinton as America's next President! We're with her because she's with us! #gotv #imwithher #election2016 #turnOUT

A video posted by Human Rights Campaign (@humanrightscampaign) on

In a speech earlier today, @HillaryClinton made clear why she's the most pro-#equality presidential candidate on the ballot. Hillary will fight for the Equality Act and work for the expansion and protection of rights for #LGBTQ people in America and around the globe. We're with her because she's with us and our HRC volunteers and supporters are more fired up than ever to #turnOUT the vote! #election2016 #imwithher #gotv

In this new clip from ‘King Cobra,’ James Franco explains how a ‘twink’ becomes a ‘twunk’

The chemistry between on-screen lovers James Franco and Keegan Allen is clearly on display in a new clip from King Cobra.

‘You got everything baby,’ Franco’s gay porn producer character tells his boyfriend and leading man.

A shirtless Allen is pouting that he’s not as big a star as Brent Corrigan.

Franco dismisses Corrigan (played in the movie by Garrett Clayton) as a ‘f*****g twink’ who will soon be a washed up ‘twunk.’

But in this movie set in the world of gay porn, they end up seeing Corrigan as their vehicle to big bucks.

The pair are so determined to get him for their next gay porn movie that they are even willing to kill a rival producer to get Corrigan out of his exclusive contract.

The ripped-from-the-headlines drama provides a major departure for Disney Channel star Clayton as the teen porn sensation.

It also stars Christian Slater as the rival producer, Alicia Silverstone as Corrigan’s mother and Molly Ringwald as the sister of the murdered producer.

The film was written and director by Justin Kelly who previously worked with Franco on I Am Michael.

King Cobra opened in New York City last weekend and expands into other markets, including Los Angeles, this weekend.

Friday Morning Men: Keegan Allen & James Franco!

King Cobra opened in NYC last week and today it opens in LA. I enjoyed the film when I saw it at Outfest over the summer and two of the biggest reasons were the performances of Keegan Allen and James Franco. They play a volatile pair of gay porn producers who are crazy in love with each other – and both a little crazy.

Anderson Cooper thinks Gingrich is a hypocrite

Anderson Cooper is blasting Newt Gingrich for a recent comment that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is ‘obsessed with sex.’

On his nightly CNN show Wednesday, The Silver Fox took aim at the former speaker of the US House of Representatives.

‘For Newt Gingrich to accuse Megyn Kelly of being fascinated by sex, this is a guy who is on his third marriage, cheated on his first two wives and was having an affair when he was impeaching Bill Clinton,’ Cooper said.

When a Gingrich defender began to talk Cooper interjected: ‘For a man like him with his record on relationships, to accuse Megyn Kelly of being fascinated by sex just seems a particular ironic (statement).’

Despite the criticism, Gingrich earned praise for his comments from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump who was confronted by Kelly at a debate last year on his treatment of women.

During a campaign appearance Trump said Gingrich gave ‘an amazing interview.’
