Weekend Meme: Matthew Mitcham Is a New Gay Icon, Mark Ruffalo Would Not Have Been Cast In “Hung,” and What Is Simon Pegg Afraid of?

Mark Ruffalo is a good interview (unless you’re the film’s publicist trying to keep him from revealing too much).  When he was talking about filming The Avengers and doing motionMark Ruffalo capture as The Hulk, he let this gem drop about the skin tight motion capture suit. “I’m not well-endowed, and those suits don’t really show you off in the most…”

Deadline does a really great roundup on the early pilot season buzz. Two standouts for me were, that while The New Normal is still filming, they don’t think any network would turn it down with the auspices it has, and certainly not hit starved NBC. Plus, evidently Partners, the much redone show about the Will & Grace creators personal dynamic is getting great buzz at CBS, which is shocking.

 As expected, Current TV filed a countersuit on Keith Olbermann, saying Olbermann’s own suit was “riddled with falsehoods and distortions.” Oddly, they take Olbermann’s comments on Letterman about having made a mistake as evidence that Olbermann screwed up. What Olbermann said was that he made a mistake even joining Current TV, which is different.

You can never trust something in the National Enquirer, and their headline definitely sucks, but they’re claiming that Josh Hutcherson’s support of gay rights stems from having had two uncleIan Somerhalders die of AIDS at a young age. While that could be one explanation, the other could be that he’s just the perfect man.

Britain’s gay flamingo pair just celebrated five years together, with a courtship that’s included raising chicks together that they stole from straight flamingos. Obviously a consequence of gay marriage.

Taking a more traditional route than their Maine counterparts, Catholic bishops in Washington are coming out full force to support the repeal of marriage equality in Washington.

So. John Cougar Mellencamp and Stephen King wrote a musical together. Never really expected to type that.
