Monday Morning Man: David Quinn!

I don’t follow hockey much. But I noticed some photos of this handsome guy in recent years and his beautiful blue eyes just have me spellbound.

He’s 52-year-old David Quinn and he’s just started as head coach of the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League. He was formerly head coach of the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League, an assistant coach for the Colorado Avalanche of the NHL and head coach of Boston University.

Quinn played for Boston University and after his junior season, he tried out for the 1988 U.S. Olympic Team. But during his tryout he was diagnosed with Haemophilia B (also known as Christmas disease), a rare disorder which prevents blood from clotting properly. Due to the disorder, Quinn was forced to retire from the game.

He was later able to find funding for expensive medication to combat the disease, and he was given a tryout for the 1992 U.S. Olympic team. He didn’t make the team, but he did attract the attention of the New York Rangers, who signed him to his first professional contract in February 1992. Quinn finished the 1991–92 season with the Rangers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Rangers. He then played the entire 1992–93 season with the Cleveland Lumberjacks of the International Hockey League. He retired following that season without ever making the National Hockey League and began his coaching career.

Former VP Joe Biden at HRC dinner: “We are in a fight for America’s soul. What has become of us?”

Former Vice President Joe Biden told the crowd at last night’s Human Rights Campaign national dinner in Washington D.C. that he wished he had spoken out against Trump sooner: “Barack and I agreed we would be quiet for the first year to let the new administration get up and running. God forgive me.

“Forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you have made. This time they — not you — have an ally in the White House. … Instead of using the full might of the executive branch to secure justice, dignity, and safety for all, the president uses the White House as a literal, literal bully pulpit, callously exerting his power over those who have little or none.”

Biden decided to start speaking up against Trump after Charlottesville: “This is deadly earnest, we are in a fight for America’s soul. What has become of us? Our children are listening and our silence is complicit.”

WATCH: Robert Redford opens up about his legendary career on “CBS Sunday Morning”

“You know, I can’t do this forever,” said Robert Redford. At 82 he’s starring in a new film, “The Old Man & the Gun.” It’s based on the true story of Forrest Tucker, a lifelong outlaw who escaped from nearly every prison he was confined to, continuing to rob banks well into his late 70s. Lee Cowan catches up with the Oscar-winning actor-director, who talks about his surprise at being cast as a matinee idol; his classic films like “All the President’s Men;” and his decision to retire from acting – but hardly retire from life.

“Papi Chulo” star Matt Bomer on his gay roles: “I’m really proud and thankful that I get to be part of these stories”

In the new film Papi Chulo, Matt Bomer plays a Los Angeles based gay weatherman on the verge of a breakdown. In a fit of desperation, he hires a Latino migrant worker (played by Alejandro Patino) to repaint his deck, and the two begin an unlikely–if zany–friendship.

Bomer and the film;s director John Butler spoke with Queerty about the film and more during the Toronto Film Festival.

Here is an excerpt:

Queerty: I’ve noticed your choice of roles in the past few years are stories that speak more to the community.

Bomer: Yeah.

Queerty: Like Normal Heart. Like Boys in the Band. Do you feel like you have an obligation as a gay dad to tell these stories? So your kids understand the history?

Bomer: Well I think it’ s inherently part of my story, so I try to be part of those stories. But I try to just tell the stories that I really love and respond to, to be honest with you. And this is one of those. And looking at the script—I would have jumped at the chance to play Sean even if he were heterosexual. You know, it’s a small part of who he is and what’s going on in the film. But, yeah, I love telling all kinds of different stories. I hope I get to tell more LGBTQ stories. I hope a chance to do other stories. That’s part of being an actor—hopefully, to play all different kinds of roles. I’m really proud and thankful that I get to be part of these stories, and hopefully get to continue.

Friday Morning Man: Brett Robinson!

I stopped watching Big Brother long ago.

But last night’s elimination went viral as host Julie Chen signed off as “Julie Chen Moonves” in solidarity with her beleaguered husband Les Moonves who was forced to resign as head of CBS amid sexual harassment allegations.

I saw booted houseguest Brett Robinson sitting across from Mrs. Moonves and quickly googled him and saw that he was this season’s shirtless dude.

He’s a cyber security engineer from Charlestown, Massachusetts, who confesses: “I hack into my friends’ computers for fun.”

His strategy going in was this: “I plan to lie about my current occupation and life. I want people to think I am just a dumb surfer/model guy. Then, I will slowly plant my seeds of stories throughout the entire house, causing chain reactions that I will have to dynamically calculate on the fly.”

It didn’t work.

Cher chats ABBA with “Attitude”

Cher is on the cover of Attitude and has done an interview with the magazine.

Her high-camp persona and outspoken support of LGBT equality has ensured her bond with gay men has remained resolute for almost six decades, but the singer says she didn’t intend for Dancing Queen – due for release on September 28 – to be her campest contribution to music yet.

“In my mind it wasn’t [camp]” she tells us. “Honestly! I didn’t mean it to be camp!

“I’m happy if whoever wants to think of it as that, if it makes them happy I’m pleased. But I didn’t mean it to be camp at all. I just thought it to be either fun or a little bit heart-breaking.”

The Empress of Pop, who has already unveiled tracks from the album including ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)’ and ‘SOS’ goes on: “ABBA songs are a lot harder to sing than one might imagine. They’re much more intricate, they’re much more substantive. I think that people love ABBA, but I’m not so sure they appreciate them on a musical level. I don’t think they ask themselves, ‘Why am I loving this?’”
