Most likely Darren Criss

Guesser said...

But it can't be Darren, it doesn't say our favorite!

Brayson87 said...

So who's the top?

sandybrook said...

I thought ASkars or Sam Heughan is supposed to be our favorite @guesser?

Geeljire said...

Why does acting always seem to come down acting like you're not having sex with men when in reality you are?
Not a SAG member.

When's the blind about McDormand being so hopped-up she got her statue stolen?

Dead Girl said...

Darrin Criss....is he still going to marry his beard?

Sandita said...

Criss. That role screams Emmy.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Any guesses on the under secretary?

Criss and Rick Perry

Doug said...

Hilarious to go from Himmmm's probably apocryphal but touching story to a closeted actor getting it on with someone like Rick Perry. Great comic juxtaposition.

Okay, so I’ve gotta ask again, an I hope some folks here will help a neighbor out, because I am so confused by all the gay Darren Criss blinds.

What benefit is it to Criss (or Murphy) that Criss is seen as heterosexual? It’s not like he’s storming any studio gates as the next big heterosexual action hero.*

He got his start as the most camp Harry Potter ever.

His big break was playing the moony-eyed singing gay teen boyfriend of openly gay Chris Colfer’s incredibly camp Kurt Hummel.

He went on to broadway and got huge press for doing Hedwig, one of the few “straight” actors to take up the mantle.

He’s now back in the news playing an infamous gay serial killer...

And he would have had to anticipate a need to seem believably heterosexual all the way back to his college years at UofM when he and Mia Swier began their relationship (of whatever nature).

And yet he resisted changing his floppy haired hipster image until he was literally ready to quit Hollywood in spite of it getting in the way of him realizing his dreams as an actor? A haircut sounds a lot less effort than maintaining a beard since you were a teen in Michigan off the hopes of hitting the Hollywood big time.

Do what am I missing? What IS the benefit to Criss? What is the benefit to Murphy that Criss would be seen as heterosexual (if indeed that was in a contract as someone else here suggested).

I really don’t care what Darren Criss’ sexuality looks like when it’s at home. I just really feel like I’m missing something here that would make it all make sense to me like it does to all of you and enty.

I just don’t GET this one.

*Personally, I think MCU needs to look into the next big Bisexual Action Hero**The ratings would be huge.***
**Deadpool wasn’t MCU
***But the box office takes were seriously huge

Or Mnuchin!!!!

Robbie said...

FYI, the big DC names are Secretaries (i.e., Carson, Perry, etc.). There are dozens and dozens of Undersecretaries with no name recognition so unlikely it'd be possible to guess.

@Han, Deadpool is canonically pan FWIW.

But Daken is bi. And a fascinating character. I don't know about "hero" tho...

MJ said...

Michael B Jordan?

Han Niam said...

@LowKey I know. Hoping we get to see that aspect of Deadpool pop up in the movies TBH.
