Well, not exactly. You’ll see what I mean in a moment.
Okay. I’ve been following the saga of Brett Ellis Easton on twitter with regard to openly gay actor Matt Bomer playing the lead role in “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
You can read what I posted here.
In an entertaining twist, BEE tweeted this on August 10th.
“You know what? I changed my mind: I now think a gay actor HAS GOT to play Christian Grey. It’s IMPERATIVE that someone gay plays him. Let’s destroy the bullsh*t stereotypes of Hollywood studio moviemaking and cast a gay actor as Christian Grey in ’50 Shades of Grey.’ A win. But I still don’t think Matt Bomer should play the role.”
Matt Bomer has yet to respond.
Thousands of fans have bombarded his facebook page offering their support to Bomer.
For me, Brett Ellis Easton saved his ass with that last tweet. I think I get what he’s saying now. I didn’t say I agree with it. But I get it. To be honest, I picture someone more along the lines of Hugh Jackman playing Christain.
Frankly, I’m curious to hear Bomer’s thoughts on this. But I wouldn’t blame him if he remained blank forever on the topic. That’s what I would do. In spite of everything, maybe it’s time to put an end to the labels altogether.
