MACY IS ZADAN AND MERON'S FAMILY MAN
Gay mega-producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are raking it in at the box office with the smash summer musical Hairspray, but they're keeping too busy to rest on their laurels. The duo is teaming with actor William H. Macy for Family Man, a one-hour drama pilot for TNT. Macy will star as an upstanding member of the community who, by night, secretly leads a dysfunctional, bickering gang of criminals. Macy has had a good run with the cable network thus far - he earned an Emmy for the made-for-TNT movie Door to Door and was nominated again for the channel's The Wool Cap. Steven Schachter, who directed both those films, will direct and co-write (with Macy) Family Man, which would premiere in 2008, if picked up.

DESPERATE HOUSEGAYS
While the hit nighttime soap Desperate Housewives has racked up a fervent Gay following with its fierce heroines and over-the-top storylines, the show's occasional Queer characters have existed somewhat on the margins. Until now, that is. The show's Gay creator, Marc Cherry, has announced his intentions to have a male couple move to Wisteria Lane. One of the men will apparently have a contentious relationship with Teri Hatcher's character, Susan. No word yet as to which actors will fill the roles, although the British tabloids had a field day conjecturing that Robbie Williams and new L.A. resident David Beckham might get the gig. Viewers everywhere will find out who the show's new Gays are when the couple makes its debut appearance on the fifth episode of Housewives' new season.

BLONSKY AND SHEEDY LOVE HAROLD
How much do we love Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky, the effervescent, voluptuous young newcomer who shimmied her way into our hearts as Tracy Turnblad? Despite the prevailing wisdom that Hollywood doesn't know what to do with a talented big girl, Blonsky's continuing to get work. Blonsky has been cast as the lead character's best friend in Harold, a comedy about a teenage boy (Spencer Breslin) who starts prematurely balding. In a casting move guaranteed to make Gen X-ers feel old, Ally Sheedy will play Harold's mother. Yes, that's right - the star of High Art and teen classic The Breakfast Club is now playing a teenager's mom. Let's toast her with some Metamucil and look forward to Harold's release in 2008.

JOHN WATERS, STAND-UP COMIC
If you've never spent "An Evening with John Waters," listening to the hilarious writer-director do stand-up comedy about his life and career, then you've missed out on one of his many talents. Thankfully, the new documentary This Filthy World captures the Pope of Trash at his brilliant best. Directed by Jeff Garlin (best known as Larry David's pudgy sidekick on Curb Your Enthusiasm), Filthy features Waters talking about the many high and low points of his career, with dishy tales about stars like Johnny Depp, Kathleen Turner, Ricki Lake, and Tab Hunter, alongside moving and bizarre accounts of working with the legendary Divine. Waters fans and boring civilians alike will have the chance to experience This Filthy World when the documentary hits DVD this October.

Romeo San Vicente is sometimes accused of being filthy, but he never curbs his enthusiasm. He can be reached care of this publication or at DeepInsideHollywood@qsyndicate.com.
