AfterElton Briefs: “Being Human” Gets Reviewed, “Glee” Casting Gets Clearer, Mike Diamond Gets Naked, and more

Smolder, smirk, and ears!

Following this assortment of carefully-selected news items, interested readers can find a refreshing pic of a hot man in underwear. Yes, we’re serious.

  • The Spurf™ over at Entertainment Weekly has been playing fill-in-the-blank games with the casting on Glee. The first one worked out to Kurt‘s boyfriend being on the football team. He has a new puzzle now.

Kurt isn’t the *n** seemingly celibate **ee *h*r***e* **tt*** * *o**
i******t *e*t *e****!

  • In a new article, the same Spurf™ says that the third mystery casting is for a male R&B rival for Mercedes.

  • Mike Diamond got naked and posed for a PETA ad. It talks about…things. It’s unclear if PETA actually asked him to make the ad since it’s not on their main web page.
  • Anybody who watched the American Idol auditions last night noticed it was edited to show some serious tension between Simon Cowell and Neil Patrick Harris. I’m not sure I’d go all the way and call NPH "bitchy" like some did, but I’d definitely call Simon that and more.
  • Nicholas Hoult, most recently of A Single Man, but most fondly of Skins, has signed on to appear in Fury Road, the Mad Max sequel. He’ll be playing a character named Nux.
I have a hard time imagining him even dirty, much less rough-and-tumble. Maybe tumble.
  • I’m not sure there’s anything gay about it, but both NewNowNext and we have mentioned the Joseph Gordon-Levitt movie Hesher that was showing at Sundance. The film has been purchased for distribution by Newmarket, the firm behind such gay favs as Cruel Intentions and Donnie Darko.
It does NOT look like a sequel to Mysterious Skin, that’s for certain.
  • Author J.D. Salinger has passed away at the age of 91. For years people have debated the sexuality of  Catcher In the Rye‘s Holden Caulfield, and now the only man who’s sure is gone.
