John Barrowman as La Cage aux Folles Zaza h/t Mandy.

At the top, we have the one-of-a-kind John Barrowman as Zaza from La Cage Aux Folles. John commission the doll from Tonner, who made the Torchwood Captain Jack action figures.

Plus Louis Van Amstel's sexy new look, a PSA from cats, and the degaying of Cholly and Flytrap.

The Kids Are All Right expanded to 38 screens this week and wasn’t able to maintain its record-breaking average from last week, but at $27,285/screen, it was still top dog over all the limited releases on a per-screen basis.
