We Have a Winner!

We have a winner in today's Gay Film Quiz. Woody sure knows his gay film trivia! 

The actors that have played gay are:

Greg Kinnear - As Good as it Gets

Al Pacino - Dog Day Afternoon and Angels in America

Will Smith - Six Degrees of Separation

John Stamos - The Wedding Wars

And not only has Denzel Washington not ever played gay, when Will Smith called him and asked his advise on whether to play gay in SIX DEGREES, Denzel told him absolutely not. Fortunately, he phoned Wesley Snipes who told him, "Do it, it's a job and a good part."

Al Pacino did not play gay in CRUISING. He played a cop going undercover as gay. 

Pacino's character in DOG DAY AFTERNOON was based on a true story of a man who tried to rob a bank so his lover could have a sex change operation. Well, he didn't succeed, but years later when the rights to their story were sold to Hollywood, his lover used that money to finally get his sex change. Unfortunately, he also died of AIDS in the 1980's.

Tune in tomorrow at 9 am for the next gay quiz, and your next chance to win hours of lesbian drama with our L Word Season 5 BOx Set dvd giveaway!!!
