Matthew Ludwinski in "Going Down in La La Land"

11 July 2011 7:16 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

There's a new gay film from Casper Andreas (Violet Tendencies, Slutty Summer) making the festival rounds. In fact, it's currently playing at Outfest in Los Angeles. The film is an adaptation of the comic memoir novel Going Down in La La Land which chronicles the adventures of a naive young actor who gets mixed up in porn/hustling when he tries to make it in Hollywood. As one does. Model/actor Matthew Ludwinski has the lead role.

I recently interviewed him for global queer culture magazine mate (previously known as "winq") and that's the splash page for the start of the article above. Interviews can be tricky -- especially if the interviewee doesn't have a big resume to talk about -- but Ludwinski and his photographer David Waage for this profile were very friendly and fun.

Review: "The Facts of Life"'s Mindy Cohn was Born to Play the "Fruit Fly" at the Center of "Violet Tendencies"

Mindy Cohn in Violet Tendencies

Why does it go without saying that former The Facts of Life star Mindy Cohn, who played Natalie, was born to play the self-described "oldest living fag hag" at the center of the new romantic comedy Violet Tendencies, out this month on DVD?  

Maybe it's the fact that she got all the good jokes on that old sitcom, but fewer storylines than the other cast members. Or maybe it was her impish, irreverent air.

I'm not sure why, but you know it's true, don't you?

And sure enough, Cohn is terrific in the role of Violet, an aging New York fruit fly whose gay friends are all settling down, even as she struggles to find a single straight man who (a) isn't a total freak and (b) is interested in her.

After a while, she even starts to wonder if maybe her gay friends are »
