We cannot wait to see Michael. If James Franco and Zachary Quinto playing lovers wasn't enough, I just got word that they shot a "very hot" three-way sex scene for the independent movie. Former Teen Wolf star Charlie Carver is the third in their bed. "They first meet in a club. The music is pumping. It's the eighties!" a source said. "When Charlie's character questions Franco about having a boyfriend, Franco says, 'He'd like you, too.'" Cut to the bedroom, where the three are naked, intertwined and "kissing," the source said.

'Transparent,' 'Scandal' and Lgbt Onscreen: "Visibility Is So Important for Us to Move Forward"

21 November 2014 8:36 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

2014 has been a breakthrough year for the Lgbt community, onscreen and in the headlines. "Being gay is permeating the mainstream in this country in a way that even 10 years ago was kind of unfathomable," Zachary Quinto told The Hollywood Reporter while stepping into New York City's Stage 48 on Thursday night for the OUT100 Awards. "That in and of itself is such staggering movement forward, coupled with all the political gains we've had — with some minor recent setbacks. But all that needs to happen is that people need to stand up and come out in whatever

The Unsurprisingly Epic History of Movie Bowl Cuts

17 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The bowl cut is (as best summarized by Gary Larson), nature’s way of saying “do not touch.” This is the haircut of a child (worse, a child with zero fashion sense). If worn by a child, don’t touch, because hey- that’s not your child. On an adult, don’t touch, because whomever sports the bowl cut may not be of sound mind or body. Or they could be Jim Carrey, filming a Dumb and Dumber sequel. Lloyd Christmas has returned, and with him, the rattling rattlesnake tail of the haircut world. But Lloyd isn’t the only one to take his fashion cues from a salad bowl- he’s one of many in a long line of bowl-cutted heroes, American patriots who’ve upheld a ruler-straight hairline for nearly a century. Let’s take a look at a few, shall we? Moe Howard, The Three Stooges The Great Depression was a dour period in »

Hello all, Manuel here with a number of Lgbt-related news to kick off your Monday.

- Let’s start with the pretty. Love these images of the Looking boys for their OUT100 spread. The magazine named the HBO series TV show of the year.

Shane Dawson’s Movie Wins $250,000 In Starz’ ‘The Chair,’ Critics Complain

10 November 2014 7:53 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Shane Dawson has quite a bit to thank his fans for. The insanely popular YouTuber (he boasts over 12.6 million subscribers across three channels) won $250,000 after his fans voted his film Not Cool as the winner of Starz’s reality TV series The Chair. The ten-episode series documented the independent filmmaking progress of its two contestants -- Dawson and filmmaker Anna Martemucci -- as they produced their own versions of the same script penned by Dan Schoffer. Starz released the episodes online to its subscribers, and asked viewers to vote on their favorite film. Martemucci’s film Hollidaysburg and Dawson’s Not Cool debuted on digital platforms, with Dawson’s creative vision hitting the #5 spot on iTunes within hours of its release on September 23, 2014. Starz announced Dawson the winner after the voting was tallied on Saturday, November 8, 2014. And that’s when the criticism started coming in. According to Variety, New York »

Starz's ‘The Chair’ Winner Shane Dawson Is Proud He ‘Didn't Hate or Attack Anybody’ to Win

8 November 2014 8:01 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Starz competition “The Chair” would seem like a lucky leap for contenders Shane Dawson and Anna Martemucci over the challenges aspiring filmmakers must deal with before getting a film financed. But as the process was shot and televised, the two had to deal with an incredible amount of public scrutiny. Dawson was named “The Chair's” winner during Saturday's finale episode. But, things had become especially contentious as the show's fans clashed on social media and the show's executive producers Zachary Quinto and Neal Dodson publicly shared their dislike of Dawson's movie “Not Cool,” on the show and in a guest blog on. »

'The Chair' producer Chris Moore on Shane, Anna and the finale

8 November 2014 8:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Starz's terrific reality series "The Chair" — in which two first-time filmmakers are picked to direct their own take on the same script — just concluded, with an hour looking at the premieres of both films and with the winner of the $250,000 prize being announced. I spoke with Chris Moore — the "Project Greenlight" alum who dreamed up the series and served as a backer and producer of both the show and the films — about the results of the contest, the transparency of the project, Zachary Quinto (whose production company helped fund both films) hating one movie so much that he took his name off it, and more, coming up just as soon as I identify all the TCA members shown on camera...  So, as pretty much everyone — with the possible exception of Chris Moore himself — figured going in, Shane Dawson's gross-out comedy "Not Cool" ended up beating Anna Martemucci's "Hollidaysburg" for the grand prize. »

Shane Dawson Wins Starz ‘The Chair’ $250,000 Prize, But Not Everyone’s Cool With It

8 November 2014 7:59 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

YouTube superstar Shane Dawson is taking home $250,000 from Starz after his feature-length movie “Not Cool” won the vote in the premium cabler’s reality series “The Chair.”

The Chair” concluded Saturday night with the reveal of Dawson as the winner. For the series, producers picked Dawson — who has some 12 million fans on YouTube across multiple channels — and filmmaker Anna Martemucci to each create movies based on the same script penned by Dan Schoffer. The series documented the production of each film, and invited viewers to vote on the winner.

But there’s a difference of opinion about whether Dawson’s film deserved the prize.

Starz declined to reveal the actual vote count. The network, which used SurveyMonkey to tabulate the vote, said reviewers gave Dawson’s “Not Cool” an average score of 63 out of 100, compared with 58 for Martemucci’s “Hollidaysburg.” About 39% of those who attempted to vote were disqualified because »

‘The Chair's’ Shane Dawson on ‘Hollidaysburg’ Producers’ ‘Hate Campaign': ‘It Became Really Personal’

8 November 2014 1:54 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Chair” contender and YouTube star Shane Dawson feels that comments made by executive producers of the Starz competition, Zachary Quinto and Neal Dodson, and supporters of his competitor Anna Martemucci and her film “Hollidaysburg” were unfair and unprofessional. “I knew this was going to happen,” Dawson told TheWrap of Team “Hollidaysburg's” “hate campaign,” as he described it. Last week, TheWrap posted a guest blog from Dodson which detailed his extreme dislike for Dawson's movie “Not Cool” and why he felt that “Hollidaysburg” should win the competition. And last Saturday's episode showed Quinto's disgust with Dawson's film. He and Dodson ultimately. »

Hannah Is In Iowa, Marnie Is Still Singing, and 18 More Things That We Have to Discuss from the New Girls Trailer

7 November 2014 11:04 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

O.K., the first official trailer for Girls season 4 is finally here. The hit HBO series created by Lena Dunham marked its return to awkward greatness with a surprisingly smart season 3.

1. Hannah (Dunham) is definitely in Iowa.

2. And she looks great. She’s rocking some Vogue-styled hair and learned how to do her makeup.

3. “Random steps.”

New Girls Season 4 Trailer: Hannah Takes the Next Step in a Series of Random Steps

7 November 2014 10:47 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

HBO has released the official Girls Season 4 trailer, teasing the new season of creator/writer/director/star Lena Dunham's divisive comedy series.  This season finds Hannah (Dunham) living in Iowa, where she’s been accepted into the state’s highly coveted writers workshop.  This being Girls, Hannah has big ideas and plans that don’t necessarily pan out the way she had hoped.  What’s most promising about this trailer, though, is the high level of comedy mixed in with the drama.  The series got a little too self-serious for its own good in the second season, and while Season 3 rebounded rather nicely, this trailer is really, really funny.  It’s also relieving to see Adam Driver is still a major part of the ensemble, as he had to split his time between filming the fourth season and shooting this thing called Star Wars: The Force Awakens in London. »
