Deep Inside Hollywood - Romeo San Vicente

Jane and Mulcahy Give 'Em Hell
While he's currently starring as a well-endowed-but-down-on-his-luck basketball coach on HBO's Hung, Thomas Jane will soon be seen wielding another weapon entirely in the violent detective story Give 'Em Hell Malone. Directed by Gay filmmaker Russell Mulcahy (Highlander), Malone features Jane as an old-school private eye who dresses and talks like a Raymond Chandler gumshoe. (It goes without saying that he shoots first and asks questions later.) The film's eclectic cast also includes Ving Rhames, French Stewart (Third Rock from the Sun), Gregory Harrison (remind Romeo to tell you about how his adolescence was rocked by Harrison in the male-stripper TV movie For Ladies Only) and Leland Orser (ER). After a well-received screening at Comic-Con this summer, look for Give 'Em Hell Malone to hit theaters with both barrels blasting before year's end.

Marshall may board Pirates franchise
With Chicago, Gay filmmaker Rob Marshall scored a Best Picture Oscar for his very first movie; now, with Memoirs of a Geisha and the upcoming Nine under his belt, he may be climbing into the director's chair of one of the world's most lucrative movie franchises. Marshall is in talks to direct the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie - and relax, they may be switching directors (Gore Verbinski is off working on other projects), but Johnny Depp will definitely be back as the androgynous and seemingly perpetually loaded Captain Jack Sparrow. No word yet regarding a plot or title for this next Pirates adventure, or even a clue about who else will be in the film, since Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley have both said they won't be back. (But what about Keith Richards?) In other words, Pirates 4 probably won't be sailing into theaters until 2011 at the earliest.

George Takei, destroyer of worlds
While Marvel Comics treats it characters (including Spider-Man, Iron Man and Daredevil) with a certain amount of seriousness on the big screen, the company is set to find the laughs in its universe of heroes and villains on The Super Hero Squad Show. Not only will this new animated TV series mix comedy with the usual action and derring-do, but it will also boast an impressive cast of voice actors. Romeo can't wait to hear Star Trek vet and Gay marriage activist George Takei as planet-eater Galactus, and the ensemble also includes Taye Diggs (Black Panther), Greg Grunberg (Ant-Man), Mark Hamill (Red Skull), Cheryl Hines (Stardust), James Marsters (Mr. Fantastic), Michelle Trachtenberg (Valkyrie) and, as a bonus for comics nerds, Stan Lee as the mayor of Super Hero City. The Super Hero Squad Show soars onto Cartoon Network this fall. No word on potential cameos from Master Shake, Frylock or Meatwad.

Jackson looks to Finian's Rainbow
Coming out of the closet hasn't affected Cheyenne Jackson's status as one of Broadway's most sought-after (not to mention hunkiest) leading men. After wowing audiences in Xanadu, All Shook Up, Aida and Thoroughly Modern Millie, the United 93 star returns to the Great White Way with a new revival of Finian's Rainbow. Jackson will reprise the lead role he performed in a recent concert staging of the show in New York; originally produced in 1947, Rainbow tells the story of Irish fortune hunters looking for leprechauns and their treasure in the American South. Francis Coppola directed the big-screen adaptation of the beloved musical in 1968, with Fred Astaire and Petula Clark in the lead roles. This latest revival opens in New York City in October. Wear green.

Romeo San Vicente went to Ireland once and learned the hard way that quoting Lucky Charms commercials was a bad way to make new friends. He can be reached care of this publication or at DeepInsideHollywood@qsyndicate.com.
