(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?   ( divider line

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.

Matt Bomer is too good for that role. Plus, he has a real job.

Yeah, there's no way a gay actor could convincingly play a straight role.

Right, Mr. Hudson?

Bret Easton Ellis is basically gay and basically crazy, comments about him being closeted or homophobic are pretty off base. Self-hating is probably spot on. My own personal theory is that he's play-acting a character from one of his books, a vapid piece of shiat blathering on about bringing credibility to a movie based on a twilight fanfic. Also, "Empire."

karasoth: The All-Powerful Atheismo: karasoth: why is a twilight fan fic becoming a movie?

Damn you Obama

Hey I like blaming Obama as much as the next republican

But seriously: Why is twilight fan fic becoming a movie?

Repressed soccer moms who feel like they're liberated by reading something edgy and taboo. A disturbingly large demographic.

I had no idea Bomer was gay, mainly because I couldn't be bothered to find out. But he completely rocks his womanizing role on TV. And it won't change my opinion of his performance the next time I see the show. I probably should have guessed he was gay though, because, seriously, no one is that farking pretty.

//and yes, as others have noted, the guy from How I Met Your Mother does straight better than most straight guys

Orgasmatron138: 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.

Times eleventy.

That book is nearly unreadable it's so bad.

This is my most favorite article about that book ever written: Landmarks of Lady Hate Presents: American Psycho, Or Despite All My Rage I am Still Just a Rat in a Vagina

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.

Are people really getting amped for the movie adaptation of a glorified $2.99 Harlequin Romance paperback?

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.

Matthew Bomer has a full-time acting gig playing a suave ladies man, you useless homophobe.
