South Park Creators Make Mormons Sing
OK, remember that South Park episode where the Mormon family moved to town and there was a musical retelling of the story of Joseph Smith? (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints wasn't amused -- maybe it was the song's "dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb" refrain.) Well, Trey Parker and Matt Stone are ready to offend the LDS again with a Broadway show that's currently called Mormon Musical. Gay song-and-dance man Cheyenne Jackson, who recently hung up his skates after the closing of Broadway's Xanadu, will play the lead role of a Mormon missionary. Avenue Q songsmith Robert Lopez will collaborate with Stone and Parker on the score, but the plot is being kept very hush-hush. Rehearsals begin this month; Romeo (and, presumably, all Gay Mormons and straight female ones who can take a joke) can't wait to see Jackson in a form-fitting set of magic underwear.

Sedaris Boogies into Dance Flick
The Wayans family knows how to Gay up a film parody - Scary Movie, after all, gave us a flamingly closeted football player who met an untimely penis-related demise in a men's room stall. (And that's as descriptive as Romeo can be without getting into trouble.) Now they're back with Dance Flick, a parody of Step It Up, Save the Last Dance, Hairspray, High School Musical, You Got Served, and all the other toe-tapping musicals of recent years. And if the song-and-dance content weren't already enough, the insurance of a Gay fan base is a lock thanks to the presence of Strangers with Candy star and co-creator Amy Sedaris playing a character named - no lie - Ms. Cameltoe. Which probably tells you everything you need to know about both the character and the humor level of Dance Flick, which will shimmy its way onto U.S. movie screens in February.

Sundance Opens with Mary and Max
Even if opponents of California's recently passed Proposition 8 have a beef with the Utah-based Mormon Church, Park City's Sundance Film Festival will no doubt continue to be the beacon of GLBT movies that it's always been. (The legendary "New Queer Cinema" movement was essentially born there in the early '90s.) Sundance 2009 will launch with a screening of Mary and Max, the feature debut from Gay Australian animator Adam Elliot, who won an Oscar five years ago for his short Harvie Krumpet. Mary and Max is a stop-motion story about Mary (voiced by Toni Collette), a lonely young girl in the Melbourne suburbs, and her decades-long pen-pal relationship with Max (Dustin Hoffman), an obese, middle-aged New Yorker. Look for Mary and Max to pick up a U.S. distributor before or during the festival.

Oy, Vey with Young, Kazan, and Electra, Already
Calling a movie Oy, Vey, My Son is Gay pretty much guarantees its target demographic will cough up the ticket money to see it, but there's more to this Queer indie than the title. The comedy, about a family dealing with their beloved son coming out of the closet, features the very handsome John Lloyd Young (he won a Tony for playing Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys) making his feature debut as the titular son, with legendary scene-stealers Lainie Kazan and Saul Rubinek as his parents. Throw in Vincent Pastore (who will be forever known as "Big" from The Sopranos) and Carmen Electra, and you've got a cast that's eclectic, to say the very least. Oy, Vey should be completed in time to make the Gay film-fest circuit next summer.

Romeo San Vicente has been known to manhunt on JDate.com looking for a nice Jewish guy of his own. He can be reached care of this publication or at deepinsidehollywood@qsyndicate.com.
