Ryan Kwanten: DNA Magazine Cover Angel

ryankwanten-dnacoverNothing is sacred in the age of the internet.  You would think True Blood hotness Ryan Kwanten would know that by now.  But assuredly the message has registered with the sexy Aussie.

During a phone-in spot with Down Under’s Kyle & Jackie O radio show a few days ago a fan brought up his one time cover boy status on Australian gay DNA magazine in which he appeared in a pair of nothing more than a set of wings and CK underwear.   Read the rest of this entry »

Luke Grimes: Films Freeheld in White Plains

Actor Luke Grimes, 30, made headlines when he abruptly vacated his role in “True Blood,” seemingly over what was widely reported to be issues with the show’s “creative direction” involving a gay budding romance with Nelsan Ellis’ character Lafayette. (At least that was HBO’s official word on the matter.)  The role was recast and life went on…

Grimes’ camp, however, offered alternate reasons for his departure.  As neither camp relented, it ended in a they said/he said quibble.

That was then and life has gone on…  Grimes presently can be found on his new project “Freeheld,” opposite a bevy of talents.

We have been keeping an eye out for the hunky one during our visits to the set, since day one, and can finally say that our perseverance finally paid off, spotting him walking about on the White Plains location, filming scenes alongside Ellen Page and Julianne Moore.

NFL Dallas Cowboys Running Back Joseph Randle, 22, reportedly makes upwards of $31 million.  That’s a whole lot of bank for a 22-year-old.  But that didn’t prevent him from attempting a five-finger discount of an $80 bottle of Gucci Guilty fragrance and a pack of Polo underwear that retailed for $40 at Dillard’s department store – allegedly.

No word on what size undies he attempted to pocket. Read the rest of this entry »

Aging actress Catherine Keener was none-too pleased to find a photographer on the set of the HBO project “Show Me a Hero,” which is presently filming in Yonkers, NY.  So much so that she ordered PA’s to play blockage while she filmed her exterior scenes.  When that proved ineffective, Keener then graduated her protest to having the mini-series extras being brought in to create a barrier.

You read that right…  Not unlike a firing line depicted in old movies. Read the rest of this entry »
