AfterElton Briefs: “L.A. Complex,” 25 People Who Just Googled “Santorum,” and A “Days Of Our Lives” Update

  • Happy Birthday to “Sexiest Man” Bradley Cooper (above), who turns 37, Vinnie Jones is 47, Joe Flanigan is 45 (best known for Stargate: Atlantis, but I first had a crush on him in Sisters), and the faboo Pamela Sue Martin is 59.
  • The latest “found footage” film will be a natural disaster entry. Category Six is about a “group of high schoolers documenting a massive hurricane.” Caused, no doubt, by aliens … or ghosts … or giant lizard monsters, or something.
  • If you were hoping that Elton John would play one of Rachel‘s dads on Glee, it’s not going to happen.
  • One Life To Live signs off next Friday, and The View will honor the show on that day with appearances by Judith Light, Erika Slezak, Kassie DePaiva, James DePaiva, Robert S. Woods, Hillary B. Smith, Robin Strasser, and creator Agnes Nixon.
  • Speaking of soaps, I invite you to join me tomorrow for a Days Of Lives Liveblog. Will Will Horton continue to not come out? Or will someone force his hand? UPDATE: Turns out what I thought was going to happen isn’t, so we’ll hold off on the LB.
  • Speaking of, below you can see Jon Stewart‘s take on the Iowa caucus, and yes, Rick’s Google problem is addressed.

  • The CW is nearing a plan to air the Canadian soap L.A. Complex, which will make its TV debut on MuchMusic next week. It’s from the makers of Degrassi, so hopefully it’ll include some AE bait.

  • Via Towleroad comes this workout clip from Randy Phillips, the airman who became a viral sensation last year when he came out to his dad on video. Sorry Randy, the only Crunch I do is Nestle’s, but please … more of these.

  • A year ago I told you about an upcoming Aussie show called Outland, which was about a group of gay sci-fi fans, and written by a gay writer. Well finally, it’s set to debut next month on Australia’s ABC network, and the Gay News Network has a profile of one of the stars, out actor Ben Gerrard (below). We’ll definitely bring you more once the show debuts. (h/t madras)
