“Hung” Hires Transgender Actress Jamie Clayton

Hung” has hired transgender woman actress Jamie Clayton for a storyline on its third season. This is a big deal! The big screen and the small screen are full of actors and actresses who are born one gender at birth (the term is “cisgendered”), but play a transgender character onscreen. While some of these portrayals are lovely — Hilary Swank in “Boys Don’t Cry,” for instance — that’s got to be frustrating for the trans actors and actresses out there. Keep reading »

Thomas Jane On Constantly Being Naked Filming “Hung”

“I still find it odd. Taking your clothes off in front of 150 people. I was naked more on set than I was in my own home. Well sure, I mean, you can get used to anything, can’t you? … As far as me being the sex object? I’m not really tired of that yet.”

Quote Of The Day: Anne Heche Was Hard To Find

“We auditioned a lot of people. It is incredibly difficult to find beautiful, talented, funny women over 35.”

– Colette Burson, the co-creator of “Hung,” on casting Anne Heche. [NY Times] — Say what? It is so NOT hard to find beautiful, talented, funny women over 35. However, it is hard to find one who is also crazy and has an alternate personality named Celestia. Keep reading »

MTV Gets Boner For Racy Teen Dramedy

It seems like only yesterday that MTV was promising to create a lineup of kinder, gentler new programming. Apparently, that’s off the table. Now, the struggling-for-a-new-identity-in-the-digital-age network is courting the kind of racy content once only fit for HBO. Possibly inspired by the buzz surrounding HBO’s new show, “Hung,” in which one well-endowed guy turns to male prostitution to pay the bills, MTV has announced a new show in development: “Hard Times.” Executive produced by David Katzenberg, who is best known for dating Nicky Hilton and Mary-Kate Olsen, in addition to being the son of Jeffrey Katzenberg, the CEO of DreamWorks, and Seth Grahame-Smith, who’s written books about porn and zombies, the series focuses on one RJ Berger, a “desperately unpopular” 15-year-old. That is! Until, one day, when he reveals to his student body that he is generously gifted below the waist. Hilarity ensues, I am sure. As for why the network is developing a TV show that amounts to a protracted d*** joke: “MTV declined to comment.” [Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

Are You Going To Watch “Hung”?

This Sunday, June 28, at 10 p.m., HBO is premiering a new show, “Hung.” Guess what it’s about? A guy who turns to prostitution to make a living. Step aside, “Belle de Jour.” Get out of here, “The Girlfriend Experience.” Call-girls are, like, so 2008. 2009 is all about guys who sell their bodies to make ends meet. The dramatic comedy stars Thomas Jane as Ray Drecker, an all-star high school athlete who ends up as a high school basketball coach whose wife dumps him for her dermatologist. Casting about for something to do with his life and make some money, Drecker takes note of his well-endowed physique and sets about renting it out by the hour. Uh, “The Sopranos” it ain’t. It’s “Boogie Nights” meets the recession! Are you going to tune in or tune it out? Keep reading »
