Deep inside Hollywood

by Romeo San Vicente - SGN Contributing Writer

Jackman taking road to Selma
Under normal circumstances, the casting of an actor to play Martin Luther King, Jr., in Selma, the latest project from Gay Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels, would be major news. And once the movie is finally shot, cut and released, David Oyelowo, the British actor wholl play the legendary civil rights leader and wholl also soon appear in George Lucass Red Tails, will surely see his profile rise in this country. But for now you probably have no idea who he is, and so the real casting news for this movie is about Hugh Jackman. Hes going to play a redneck sheriff in the story, which will center around the 1965 marches staged by King in Selma, Alabama, and he will almost certainly not be pouring entire buckets of warm water over his sweat-glistening torso in this one. But thats just a hunch. Theyre still getting the financing together anyway, so youve got some waiting on your hands, either way.

Sigourney and Silverstone to Vamp
Want more vampires in love? Of course you do. Your job as a member of consumer culture requires you to enjoy astonishing amounts of the thing thats really popular right now. So thats what youre going to get. Welcome, then, Vamps, the new film from Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Clueless writer/director Amy Heckerling. Its sort of a young Sex and the City-meets-glamorous-neck-biting and will star Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter (Shes Out of My League) as two young lady-bloodsuckers in New York, both of whom have to choose between immortality and love. It will co-star Sigourney Weaver (its really about time she got to play a vampire; her Lesbian icon status was in jeopardy after that last Tim Allen comedy) as the leader of a blood dynasty. Look, as long as its a comedy and Alicia is allowed to shop some, it probably wont hurt a bit.

Ashley Tisdale: Hellcat
From the It-Sure-Took-Them-Long-Enough department (and certainly inspired by a certain show about teen choirs) comes Hellcats, a pilot from the CW about cheerleading. Starring Aly Michalka as a college girl from the wrong side of the tracks who joins the world of competitive cheering, the series has cast singer-actor Ashley Tisdale as the squads intensely ambitious team captain. Tisdale almost singlehandedly added all comic relief to the High School Musical franchise as the intensely ambitious queen of drama club (so yeah, not much stretching here) so this bit of actor-in-the-right-role news feels like a perfect fit. Better yet, its for a network that specializes in tart-tongued young things, so were certain to see Tisdale finally shed some of her squeaky-cleanliness. And you can go ahead and call it Bring It On: The College Years: The TV Show if you want. Thats what it sounds like to Romeo, too. It also sounds like a damn good time waiting to happen.

Jason Segels rainbow connection
In truth, theres technically nothing truly Gay about The Muppets. Theyre wholesome and sweet and hilarious. There are no openly homosexual Muppets. (Unless youre talking about Bert and Ernie. And weve had our Gaydar tripped by Big Bird. And Sweetums. And Miss Piggy is voiced by a man. Okay, The Muppets are super-Gay after all.) But they do resonate with everyones sense of humor and, more importantly, the human sense of wanting to belong to a big happy group. So the news that The Greatest Muppet Movie of All Time is happening and that puppet-friendly funny guy Jason Segal is not only the main-starring human being but also the scripts co-writer is more exciting than the announcement of a project featuring actual Gayness. It just is. Set for 2012, it cant arrive soon enough, Mayan calendar be darned.
