First of all, Happy Star Wars day! May the Fourth be with you!
Benedict Cumberbatch is “startlingly aware” of the slashfic of him and Martin Freeman. “It’s cool… I suppose my bodily proportions are quite flattering. I’m ripped, doing something I wouldn’t normally do with my body, or having done to it, involving Watson. So that’s as far as I’ll hit about that one, but it’s all there on the web if you want to find it.”
Over at NewNowNext, Sexpert Conner Habib is back with a new question. It’s way too far for us to run here, but as he notes (with a great sight gag), there are differences in how gay guys and girls and straight guys view certain aspects of sex.

Facebook is set to go public this month, and the middle price for the share issue put the company valued at somewhere around $78 billion, but could be as high as $100 billion. Still compared to Apple, currently sitting at $554 billion market cap, it seems almost small.
Sharlto Copley is in talks to play King Stefan opposite Angelina Jolie in Maleficent. Oddly, I haven’t jumped on the fairy tale bandwagon that’s been going lately, but I’m excited to see this – I love a good villain.
As the article says, Joseph Gordon-Levitt remaking Little Shop of Horrors and starring as Seymour is intriguing, but is this something that really needs to be remade? But we do know he can sing, so there’s that taken care of.
I haven’t watched American Idol since I covered it for this site in the year of Adam Lambert, but did Joshua Ledet have a “no homo” moment this week? E! and Queerty think so, and the video certainly looks that way.
The governing boards of the Gay Games and the Out Games are meeting to discuss combining the events in 2018. Due to costs, many athletes have to choose which to compete in.
I’ve only heard “We Are Young” twice I think, and one of those might have been a parody, but the boys of fun seem to be big with the young folks these days. The members of the band are all straight, but tell the Washington Post that they want to take their fame and start a marriage equality charity. “We’re firm believers in the idea that if you’re not talking about it, you’re part of the problem. “We realize we have an audience, and it would be a real shame to waste it.”

Tennessee, this may be the worst thing that’s happened in your state this year, and someone needs to shut it down before this kid’s life is ruined. Seriously, tearing pages out of the yearbook and trying to deny him graduation, not to mention the witch hunt on the teacher that’s likely the one bright spot in this kid’s life?

Starz has greenlit a prequel series to Treasure Island, produced by Michael Bay. I don’t know how he’s going to blow up enough stuff with just cannons.The article notes that there are four Treasure Island pieces in the work, and that’s not even counting SyFy’s Eddie Izzard starrer.
One Million Moms (current membership: 40,000, but it’s good to have goals) is upset with JCPenney again, and want their angry moms to harass store managers about the lesbian moms in the Mother’s Day circular. Because their last JCPenney protest went so well. And having worked in retail management for many, many years, I can assure you, the store managers do not care at all your opinion of corporate advertising.
I have to admit, I wasn’t big on Vulture’s idea of inserting other Avengers into Broadway, but their idea for Captain America is brilliant.
