AfterElton Briefs: Gotye Has A Death Wish, “Mansome” Is Coming, and “Funky Winkerbean” Has A Coming Out

  • Birthday shoutouts go to Dutch OlympianSven Kramer (above), who is 26 (and who I’m recognizing because I appreciate and respect the athletic form), Valerie Bertinelli is 52, Kal Penn is 35, Joyce DeWitt is 63, a big belated birthday to AE’s own faboo bionicmomma, and Judy Davis is 57. What are your fave Judy performances? Here are mine: 5. The New Age, 4. Husbands & Wives, 3. A Passage To India, 2. Life With Judy Garland: Me And My Shadows, 1. My Brilliant Career,
  • TV Line has spoilers for the remainder of Glee‘s season.
  • Speaking of, Gotye thinks Glee‘s cover of his #1 hit “Somebody That I Used To Know” is … oh dear … “dinky and wrong.”
  • Sam Sparro goes back to Prohibition in his new music video for “I Wish I Never Met You.”
  • Below you can see the trailer for Mansome, in which “models, actors, experts and comedians weigh in on what it is to be a man in a world where the definition of masculinity has become as diverse as a hipster’s facial hair in Williamsburg.” It features Will Arnett and Jason Bateman in a bathtub, and unfortunately, also spotlights supreme asshat Adam Carolla.

  • A new biopic is on the way which will “focus on the professional and personal relationship between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards as the Rolling Stones record their classic Exile on Main Street album in the south of France in the summer of 1971.” Fantasy casting? I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to immediately ban Johnny Depp from consideration. He needs a break. For Mick, the obvious choice is Lisa Rinna , and Keith, one of those apple-throwing trees from The Wizard Of Oz.
  • Via Towleroad comes the story of a teacher, a student and a 39-year-long lesson in forgiveness.
  • Has Shirley MacLaine lost the ability of self-censorship, ala Sophia Petrillo? Her response to the passing of Dick Clark is certainly … to the point.

  • First there was Archie, and now Funky Winkerbean is going to introduce gay characters, starting on April 30th with a “storyline about a gay student couple who cause a flap when they want to attend the prom at the strip’s fictional Westview High School.” (h/t Addison Dewitt)
