We Need To Talk About Kevin’s Ezra Miller is an interesting package. He’s barely of age, but has played gay multiple times, including an adolescent chubby chaser. And despite the clean-cut nature of the upcoming The Perks of Being a Wallflower, life imitates art. “I’ve had many, you know, ‘happy ending sleepovers’ in my early youth,” he admits. “My period of exploration. I think that’s essential. Anyone who hasn’t had a gay moment is probably trying to avoid some confrontation with a reality in their life.”
James Dobson is unsurprisingly, a Santorum supporter. The anti-gay nutjob even has opinions on potential first ladies. “‘I want to tell you that I’ve gotten to know Karen [Santorum] and she is just lovely. She set aside two professional careers to raise these seven children. She would make a fabulous first lady role model. And Newt Gingrich’s wife, she was a mistress for eight years.”
Paula Deen finally announced that she has Type-2 diabetes, and that she’s endorsing a diabetes drug for millions. She says she needed time to process the news over the last few years.

Tilda Swinton and Chris Evans have joined Snow Piercer, by director Bong Joon-ho. They’ll play a couple under stress riding a train through a frozen landscape.
In completely shocking news, Vanity Fair’s head Gleek, Brett Berk, is giving up on the show. What could have inspired this turnaround? Yeah, the usual.
Fox news, like Sarah Palin, is unhappy with Andrew Sullivan’s Newsweek cover story about President Obama. When they showed the magazine cover on the air, they kept the title, but blurred out Sullivan’s byline.
A group of anti-gay hate groups protested outside the Southern Poverty law Center offices, upset at being labeled hate groups. Of course, they completely lied about why they earned that label, but who needs commandments anyhow, right?
Of course, SLPC responded to their issues before they even arrived – with facts. Pesky, pesky facts.
According to Michael Cudlitz, towards the end of this season of Southland, “As we go [further into the season], there are things on the job that directly relate to Cooper’s personal life, his sexuality and his take on life and love. All of that is dealt with. It’s all dealt with the same way we’ve dealt with it in the past. I’ve always said there will never be a, “Tonight, on a very special Southland…” We’re staying true to that.” I hope they’re not quite so subtle as in the past.”
Just when you thought the news that Lindsay Lohan might play Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie couldn’t be more ridiculous, news comes that competing with Lindsay for the role is Megan Fox.
In the interest of fairness, I must report Rick Warren has put out a statement condemning the American Family Association‘s assertion denying the link between HIV and AIDS.
Also in fairness, the first line of Cracker Barrel founder Danny Evin’s New York Times obituary called him out on his anti-gay employment policies, which now haunt him beyond the grave.
Dustin Lance Black’s play, 8, is going on tour around the country, with local actors. They’ll use the star-studded performances to generate publicity for the small town productions. I’m hoping the local theater company tries it. I believe it still is an Equity theater after all.
I’ve seen many a gay front license plate, and my staff at the day job just bought me a “I’m so gay I can’t even drive straight” car magnet, but Indiana trumps it all with a vanity plate supporting Indiana Youth Group, a statewide GLBT youth services organization.

In what is likely to be the only thing you all discuss in the comments, and no doubt heatedly, adult stars Samuel Colt and Chris Porter discuss their relationship under the title Monogamy Redefined. I like that they evolved their rules into something that works for them.
And finally, Glee has cast Rachel’s gay dads, Hiram and LeRoy Berry. They’ll be played by Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell, and appear first in the Valentine’s Day episode.
