I hate gay.com news… it’s always some pretentious queen trying to act like he knows what he’s talking about… eh-hem… *blush*… anyway, this story struck me – apparently there’s some guy-on-guy action coming up in Guy Ritchie’s new Sherlock Holmes movie.
Robert Downey Jr will portray Holmes and that guy that used to be in movies, what’s his name? He was pretty good – oh yeah, JUDE LAW – to play Watson. Personally I don’t see Law as much of Watson, but I don’t see Eddie Murphy as the Riddler in the next Batman movie. I PRAY this is only a rumor, but then again who saw Heath Ledger as The Joker?
So the reason this popped up on gay.com is according to Robert Downey Jr Holmes and Watson are “two men who happen to be roommates, wrestle a lot and share a bed. It’s badass.” So basically “From Hell” with buttsecks, full of creepy 19th century hookers, absinthe, and opium dens – and apparently 19th century homosexuals. My BFFSarah has an odd fascination and fear with all things 19th century: Spindly moustaches, the High Wheel Bicycle, the High Wheel TRICYCLE, back street abortions, bathtub gin, anything that happened between 1801-1899.
One year she had an 1800’s theme birthday party where she dressed as a flapper girl. I always wondered why they called them flappers; it makes me think of Sarah Silverman’s “floppy vagina” episode… anyway, I came as a backstreet abortion doctor. It was totally easy and tasteless, all I did was slick my hair back, wear a pin-line moustache, wear a trench coat, and carry a straightened clothes hanger with red fingernail polish on the end. It was horrible and tasteless – in other words a major hit.
