'War Horse' Actor Jeremy Irvine Takes The Lead In Roland Emmerich's 'Stonewall'

The questionable idea of Roland Emmerich -- he of "Independence Day," "2012" and "The Day After Tomorrow" fame -- directing a dramatization of the Stonewall Riots just got a little less questionable: Jeremy Irvine, the dreamy "War Horse" actor, has been cast as the film's lead.

Ranking the House Down: Our Squirrel Friends of Rupaul’s Drag Race, Season Six (Recap #6)

Logo TV are fitting Rupaul’s Drag Race into a new timeslot next week, so for the sake of easing audiences into the new program schedule the network ran two back-to-back episodes last night. Two episodes of Drag Race and two episodes of Untucked in one week feels like an extreme fast forward, especially given how radically the competition was shaken up between “Glamazon by Colourevolution” and “Drag Queens of Comedy”. Let us return to the predictions made last week and see where the cards lay at this point... (We will discuss the matter of Laganja Estranja in a separate article, coming soon.)

Hays’d: Decoding the Classics — 'The Children's Hour'

The Motion Picture Production Code, also known as the Hays Code after censor/stick-in-the-mud Will Hays, regulated film content for nearly 40 years, restricting, among other things, depictions of homosexuality. Filmmakers still managed to get around the Code, but gay characters were cloaked in innuendo, leading to some necessary decoding.

Watch: Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons, Taylor Kitsch and Matt Bomer Discuss 'The Normal Heart' (and Kitsch Explains Why He Had To Get The Crotch of His Jeans 'Elongated')

The story came with the below video that "goes behind the scenes of the photo shoot" (zzzz) but also gives four of the films actors -- Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons, Taylor Kitsch and Matt Bomer -- the chance to discuss the importance of the film for them, and in Kitsch's case, the importance of a tailor so that his crotch could, um, fit into his 1980s-era jeans (Bomer and Parsons' faces when he tells this story are priceless).

Lena Dunham On Being Disappointed When She Discovered She Wasn't a Lesbian (And How Happy She Was When She Found Her Sister Was)

We get shit for posting too much about Lena Dunham (though it's really only been twice), but her speech this Monday when she was honored by the Point Foundation (an organization that helps LGBTQ students overcome obstacles to complete their educations) is case in, uh, point as to why we love her so much -- and reason enough for us to post about her yet again.
