Filmmaker Bjorn Floki first became acquainted with James William Ross IV when he won “RuPaul’s Drag Race” — as drag fabulous Tyra Sanchez. He later came to know Ross as not just a crowd-pleasing performer, but also as a father. Ross is the father of a six-year-old boy named Jeremiah, and navigates his double life as a parent and drag queen with deft skill and humor. Floki is working on a documentary about the pair — and about Ross’s journey — in order to shed light on how non-traditional families are just as magical as conventional mom/dad/kid units. He’s using his Kickstarter campaign to finish the film and get it released to a wider audience.
Recounts Ross in the teaser to the film (which you can screen after the jump). “The first time I told him about Tyra I was editing a picture on the computer. He said, ‘who is that?’ I said, ‘that’s me.’ He was like, ‘Oh.’ He didn’t care. He was like, ‘Can I have a Capri Sun?’” Keep reading »

James Franco playing a guy with a God complex? You don’t say! Check out the trailer above.

Yo, this Sunday, Mr. Walter White and his meth-addicted protege Jesse Pinkman are back for the season premiere of “Breaking Bad.” I am so excited that I’m hosting a small get together at my apartment, complete with blue raspberry rock candy (what the show uses for their meth) and a bell in memory of Hector Salamanca, may he rest in peace. If I could, I would cater the entire thing from Los Pollos Hermanos.
Now, everyone knows there’s nothing hot about drug addiction in real life, but TV and movies have done a good job finding hot dudes to play drug addicts. In honor of “Breaking Bad”‘s return, I present to you 10 hot drug addicts on TV and in film, starting with the show’s own Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul). I would so be his bitch.
Apparently, reading 50 Shades of Grey warrants being squirted in the face with 50 Shades of Brown.
