Morning Man Classic: Roy Thinnes!

Last weekend, some friends and and I had a home movie night with a screening of Airport 1975. We were swooning over a young Roy Thinnes who played the unfortunate co-pilot who was sucked out of a hole in the jet. I remember him as Sloan Carpenter for a few years in the 1970s on the ABC soap One Life to Live. Thinnes had previously played the role of Alex Smith on OLTL in the 1980s. In the 1960s, he played Phil Brewer for three years on General Hospital. He is best known for his portrayal of lonely hero David Vincent in the ABC 1967–68 television series The Invaders, was the lead in the TV series The Long, Hot Summer and had a recurring role on Falcon Crest .

‘Will & Grace’ reboot to have 18 episode 3rd season

Via The Hollywood Reporter – Will and Grace’s return to TV doesn’t look to be all that temporary.

NBC announced Saturday at PaleyFest that it has committed to a third season of the revived sitcom, its 11th season overall. This early order comes before production has even begun on the second season of the popular revival. The second and third seasons of the revival will be for a total of 18 episodes each, up five from this year’s run.

Stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes — each of whom received a nice raise for the 2018-19 season — are all returning, as are co-creators and showrunners David Kohan and Max Mutchnick. This is the second time that NBC has jumped the gun and given Will & Grace the early re-up, its cast’s busy schedules being a prominent factor. NBC announced a renewal before the new episodes even started airing last fall.

I’m VERY excited to share the news that @nbcwillandgrace has been picked up for 5 more episodes next year for a total of 18 episodes for Season 2 AND @nbc has picked up a 3rd Season of the show for a total of 18 episodes for Season 3. #WillAndGrace

At 17-0 in 2018, Federer having best start ever

It was 12 seasons ago that a 24-year-old Roger Federer won the first 16 matches of his 2006 season – the best start he’d ever had. Now 36 and number one in the world again, Federer has improved upon that feat by winning his 17th match since the season began with no losses. It was a hard-fought 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 win over Borna Coric in the semifinals of the BNP Paribas Open – one of the biggest tournaments outside the four majors. Tomorrow he will play for a record sixth Indian Wells title opposite old rival Juan Martin del Potro.

Ryan Murphy pays beautiful tribute to Barbra Streisand as her TV career is celebrated at Paleyfest

Still processing last night. It was a tribute to the television career of Barbra Streisand on opening night of Paleyfest in Hollywood. It was like buttah. It was gay church. It was nirvana. After we were treated to a most delicious buffet of clips from Streisand’s various TV specials and guest appearances, she took to the stage and sat down for a Q&A with Ryan Murphy. But before Streisand appeared, Murphy shared with the audience the potent experience of seeing Funny Girl for the first time.

“The interesting thing about [Funny Girl] to me was I left and I said to my grandmother in the car afterwards, ‘I want to go back [to see the film again], and I want to be like her. To me, that’s not a male thing, it’s not a female thing, it’s not a straight and it’s not a gay thing. I saw something in Barbra Streisand that really touched my soul,” Murphy said. “She was the first of her kind as an artist, in our business and in the world. She had incredible power, she suffered no fools. You could tell that she was going to do things her way. She was not going to be [put] into a box that men created, and she kept that spirit alive throughout her entire career.”

“Many people talk about Barbra as the greatest female star of them all, and I say, ‘No. That’s not enough.’ People use the phrase ‘other’—‘the other’—and Barbra Streisand really was the first ‘other’ in our culture. She was singular, she was an artist who, on paper, probably should not have worked, but just by pure force of talent, and magnetism, and charisma, pushed through so many glass ceilings,” the producer continued. “She created an incredible career and an incredible life, her way. I think Barbra is the greatest star, male or female, that the world has ever seen, and I honestly don’t think that I would be in show business without having seen her at a very young age.”

Con-dragulations to RuPaul Charles whose star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been unveiled

RuPaul got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday.

The 57-year-old host of RuPaul’s Drag Race said he was “overcome with so much emotion” to get the honour he’d dreamed of since he was a child.

“This is absolutely the most important moment in my professional career,” he said after the honor was presented by Jane Fonda. “As a kid we’d come up here to Hollywood Boulevard. I’d look at all the stars and dream that one day, I could be one of the stars on Hollywood Boulevard. I feel like I’m being knighted.”

He explained why he chose Fonda to be a part of it: “About 50 years ago this week, Barbarella showed up at my house in the mailbox on the cover of Life magazine, and my career path was decided in that moment. I was going to become Barbarella. And here it is, she’s giving me the star. Life is strange like that.”

Anderson Cooper has split from longtime partner

Anderson Cooper is single again – sorta.

The CNN anchor has released a statement confirming that he had longtime partner Ben Maisani have split: “Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago. We are still family to each other, and love each other very much. We remain the best of friends and will continue to share much of our lives together.”

It’s not known if their change in status has anything to do with Cooper being spotted in the company of Dr. Victor Lopez, 33, in Dallas, Texas, multiple times. Lopez is with Cooper in the bottom photo.

Maisani and Cooper still remain under one roof and were seen this week leaving their house to go to the gym together.
