(Some Guy)   Bret Easton Ellis decides not enough people are paying attention to him, starts tweeting his opinions on 50 Shades of Grey casting. Why yes, there is homophobia involved, why do you ask?   (worldofwonder.net) divider line 90

What keeps confusing me is that I thought Bret Easton Ellis was gay. Is he just an attention whore or is he a self-loathing attention whore?

Why does Bret Easton Ellis, a supposedly heterosexual man, have so much emotion invested in who plays Grey McBondagesex?
 
2012-08-09 02:22:46 AM
Yeah, there's no way a gay actor could convincingly play a straight role.

Is anyone seriously casting Matt Bomer for this? Why does Ellis have such a boner for Bomer?
 
2012-08-09 02:48:45 AM
Matthew Bomer has a full-time acting gig playing a suave ladies man, you useless homophobe.

Who in hell is Bret Easton Ellis? I've never heard this name before in my life. Am I not watching the right D-list networks?

He was GAY? I... I think I might seriously cry, now.

Matt Bomer is too good for that role. Plus, he has a real job.
 
2012-08-09 10:16:18 AM
What I'm most shocked by is that he, a novelist, cares so passionately about such a poorly, unoriginal piece of crap book turning movie deal.
 
2012-08-09 10:16:54 AM
As a straight lady, Matt Bomer is still dreamy to me, regardless of which gender he's attracted to. I'm convinced! That said, I wouldn't see that dreck, even for a glance at the eye candy.

But that's, like, TV work. Not real acting like in the movies.

Most of the time, book versions are better than their film counterparts. However, the American Psycho film was better than the book.

There. I said it.

I thought he was gay too. I keep confusing him and Chuck Palahniuk though so that isn't too surprising.

OMG, Heath Ledger playing a GAY COWBOY?!? He's too much of a ladies man and hetero to pull it off. It can't be done!
 
2012-08-09 10:22:11 AM
And yet Robert Downey Jr can give bj's in "Less Than Zero."
 
2012-08-09 10:24:25 AM
Actually, the more I think of this, the more confused I am. It's called "acting" for a reason. Does Ellis really think that all romantic and physical yearnings in film are legit?
 
2012-08-09 10:24:51 AM

rynthetyn: Is he just an attention whore or is he a self-loathing attention whore?


Both.

Ever heard of "acting" Brett? Aware of the long history of gay men, closeted or otherwise, playing straight men?

Have you ever seen Neil Patrick Harris' roles?!?!

Fark you. I'll pass on your next movie you supercilious self-hating twat.

rynthetyn: What keeps confusing me is that I thought Bret Easton Ellis was gay. Is he just an attention whore or is he a self-loathing attention whore?


He apparently considers his sexuality "indeterminate" and gives every interviewer a different answer depending on his mood, although as of the last interview I saw cited he seemed to be leaning more towards gay (he made a comment about not having been with a woman for 5 or 6 years, so he couldn't really say he was bi anymore)
 
2012-08-09 10:30:03 AM
Heterosexual actors Antonio Banderas and Edward Burns star in the latest Hollywood gay blockbuster, Coalminer's Mountain. Also featuring heterosexual actress Charlize Theron as a mentally impaired lesbian with a bulbous nose. Critics are asking themselves "Is it really brave to play gay for a damned Oscar?"

Here's how you tell the two of them apart. Chuck Palahniuk is the one who doesn't spend all of his time AW'ing on twitter in an attempt to remain relevant.

They could cast a blind ferret in the role and it wouldn't affect me, because I'm not ever going to watch that movie. Why in the hell does this guy even give a shiat?

It's a Twilight fan fiction that just changed the names and nothing more. I bet there are even better Twilight fanfics for free let alone the generally better smut you can find online.

Palahniuk can actually write, though. Ellis is an overrated hack.
 
2012-08-09 11:00:19 AM
I saw this on facebook and I can't say this any better:

Geez, well, to be fair, I'd not want to see Matt Bomer in it either, but that's because it is a trite, dysfunctional piece of fan fiction with boring porn, shallow characters, yet another needy, cipher of a woman who needs an obnoxious, dangerous git to order her around in order to be fulfilled. That's not even a decent depiction of BDSM. Seriously.

The movie adaptation of Grey threatens to overshadow the movie adaptation of Ellis' own salacious novel, The Canyons.

"My porn star is better than your gay guy!"

Puh-lease.
 
2012-08-09 11:11:45 AM
What makes it more ridiculous is that it seems to be the middle America, suburban soccer mom fan base that wants Matt Bomer in the role. If the soccer moms don't care that their actor of choice for their favorite bit of smut is married to a man, then I think it's about time to drop the idea that out actors can't play hetero romantic leads because the audience won't buy it.

Wait, is that the one that's supposed to star Lindsay Lohan and an actual porn star?

Boycott JCP, but are totally on board with Bomer because of those dreamy blue eyes. Hypocrites.

So much drama over a really lousy piece of "literature."

OK, I bought the first edition of American Psycho in the summer of 1991; right now it is the summer of 2012 and, pretty much, Brett Easton Ellis used Twitter to come of the closet and declare his mancrush on Matt Bomer.

He needs to write a novel about the love that dares not say its name.

They're going to need to add a new category at the Academy Awards.

"And the Oscar for best actor in a film adaptation of Mommy Porn goes to.....Matt Bomer!"

Considering magic mike made over 100 million I think Tatum or whatever his name is wins it this year.
They are a very significant market.

I read the free sample chapter of Damned on my Kindle, and immediately deleted it. Palahniuk seems to have become all about whatever showoff writing tricks he can pull in his books and not so much about actually telling a decent story now.

Retitle the book and film to 50 Shades of Gay. Problem solved.

Magic Mike was at least a pretty good movie on its own merits. The first five minutes or so were genius. I've never seen a crowd of hooting women so utterly silenced by a jump cut. All you could hear in that theater at that point was me laughing uncontrollably at the change in tone.
