We wonder if the studio executives who turned DOWN the Liberace story “Behind the Candelabra” (we bet they were men) because they felt it was “too gay” are sorry now that HBO has this great looking Steven Soderbergh movie. The movie, starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, debuts on May 26 and chances are it will be a ratings bonanza.

    here’s a little known secret …

    on of our own, Mr.Strom himself, was on the short list for playing Matt Damon’s character in this fag film fest.

    The casting folks told me themselves, it was neck and neck, on one hand you had Damon’s track record, acting chops and marquee value, but Strom brought a powerful, natural awareness to the role, because of his obvious familarity with the whole gay, oily servant/houseboy lifestyle thingy.

    pity, I’d love to have seen him on Lee’s knee, playing the sock puppet he is, in that little outfit….

    What a photo! I wonder if Michael Douglas got to keep the costumes?

    I have no interest in seeing two dudes slobbering all over each other. I’m sure most people feel the same way.

    Agreed but many of the rainbow’s say that it is ok and preferable to have 2 men, 2 women, or 2 monkeys of the same sex married to each other.

    I don’t see this as being a huge ratings grabber

    Liberace was pretty gay (and publicly closeted?!) so I dont see how the material could be classified as “too gay”.

    I saw “Side Effects” last week and enjoyed it very much.

    This looks pretty wild & controversial. I wonder what type of crowd would be viewing this movie with you at the theater?! I would not advise one to let their straight friends know they watched this movie. Not everyone is socially liberal.

    I can’t get the image of Strom in the sparkly drummer’s boy outfit, outta my head, so funny ! so terribly gross ! secretly, he’d totally love it,

    he’s the commodore of Gay Island after all

    What a waste of money, should go straight to tv/dvd.

    That’s where it will go…..even quicker than a Lindsay Lohan or J Lo film.

    It’s HBO people, so it is on TV,not DVD required. Guaranteed this will see some Emmy love next time around for these 2 guys.

    What a load of crap. People will watch to see MD looking gay- not because of any interest in Liberace. This whole thing just leaves a terrible taste in my mouth. Yuk and spew!

    Is this openly gay TV personality who already suffered a painful loss, headed for another stay at heartbreak Hotel? He has a new YOUNG boyfriend and he’s doing everything he can to promote the lad’s career. But, BEHIND HIS BACK, the conniving cutie is having a fling with the personal trainer they both share! Our unsuspecting TV guy doesn’t have a clue because the hunky trainer has a green-card marriage and plays it straight.

    Whodunit?? Guess who.
