Hollywood Inside and Out

“He used to get quite aroused whenever I got on his back.” – Michael Fassbender talks about his HI=3047_MichaelFassbenderexperience horseback riding in “Jane Eyre”.  It’s probably the only time a horse saw someone better endowed, as you can see on

We’ve all heard that drinking red wine is good for you.  Some studies state that a couple of glasses a day helps burn fat, lowers blood pressure, cholesterol, and even helps your teeth.  So I was not particularly surprised when headlines blazed that drinking three glasses of champagne a day could help stave off Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.  We’re not talking about champagne that comes from Oregon or Uganda.  This is real champagne from Champagne, France.  Alas, the story was retracted the next day.  The study in question recommends three glasses of champagne a WEEK, not a day.  Perhaps dementia set in a bit early for some members of the media.

The champagne was flowing last week at the 2015 Marine Corps Ball in Wilmington, NC.  And one couple made quite a splash.  As we previously reported, Sgt. Tanner White made a video inviting gay singer Steve Grand to accompany him.  And Grand accepted.  The banner evening was well-documented by the sexy singer on Instagram, including a pre-festivity outing, touring a battleship, and dressing for the occasion.  In addition to some snaps of the handsome couple all HI=3047_NickJonasgussied up (including dashing Sgt. White in his dress best), there’s a photo that appears to show Grand sitting on White’s lap.  Hopefully he had a ball and didn’t sit on one!  Check them out on our website.

For the last few years, Nick Jonas has been courting gay fans with performances in gay bars, provocative pictorials, and supportive sound clips – to say nothing of actually playing gay in the series “Kingdom” and “Scream Queens”.  He even jumped in at the last minute to headline Pittsburgh Pride.  I’m not criticizing any of this.  In fact, I applaud his efforts.  But I think there’s a “gay baiting” aspect to this – a kinda deliberate teasing.  There’s the insinuation that he not only enjoys the attention of his gay fans, but perhaps harbors some secret desires of his own.  Those hints got a bit more explicit last week.  At the Radio One Teen Awards, Nick was asked about gay sex.  “Well, I’m gay in ‘Kingdom’.  If you keep watching the series you’ll see more of that.”  He was then asked point blank if he’s ever hooked up with guys.  “I can’t say if I have or haven’t, but if you watch the show you’ll see more of that.”  Oy!

These days, the line between mainstream and p-rn is blurred regularly.  But even I was shocked to read about a scandal regarding a gay adult flick and Sir John Gielgud!  Way back in 1976, the venerable actor wrote a script for Peter de Rome, a notable figure in the history of gay p-rn.  How Gielgud knew de Rome is unknown.  But, hey, if I can have Sophia Loren on speed dial, anything’s possible.  The heretofore unknown script, “Trouser Bar”, was unearthed by David McGillivray, who came across it while researching a documentary about de Rome.  He says, “John Gielgud was obsessed with trousers, loved corduroy and leather.  And so he wrote a film set in a menswear shop.”  McGillivray has filmed the script but, since he’s not a director, he hired one – the notable gay p-rn auteur Kristen Bjorn.  The flick begins with actors Nigel Havers, Julian Clary, and Barry Cryer on a sidewalk watching a gay orgy inside a men’s shop.  McGillivray calls the 22-minute silent film an “erotic fantasy”.

Predictably, the Sir John Gielgud Charitable Trust is not thrilled about this and has denied permission for the film to be exhibited.  Here’s the problem – there is not a single mention of this script in Gielgud’s letters or diaries.  In fact, he doesn’t appear to have ever written another screenplay.  But by this organization seeking to ban the film, they’re confirming that Sir John Gielgud actually wrote it.  For the time being, McGillivray’s flick remains under wraps, which is fine by him.  He’s planning a new documentary which he’ll trot out to film festivals next year.  “Inside Leg: The Making of Trouser Bar” will fully detail the history of the project.  Without even HI=3047_ChrisZylkatrying, the Sir John Gielgud Charitable Trust has given McGillivray and his dirty movie thousands of dollars of free advertising.  Banned or not, we have some stills from the short on

Our “Ask Billy” question sounded familiar.  Cary from Dallas asked, “You never write about Chris Zylka.  He’s so hot on ‘The Leftovers’.  And he even showed his penis.  What more do you need?”

If this sounds familiar, it’s because Cary from Dallas previously wrote to me about Chris Zylka almost five years ago to the day!  Back then, Zylka was in “The Secret Circle”, a show I’d never heard of and one which quickly disappeared from The CW.  But I most certainly remembered the “Hannah Montana” alum from Gregg Araki’s “Kaboom”, where he showed all as the hunky roomie of the delicious Thomas Dekker (who, as it turns out, was also on “The Secret Circle”).  In the HBO series “The Leftovers”, Zylka not only continues to flaunt his fantastic physique, but also those extra inches.  How many inches?  A soft four, which could turn into a impressive amount once aroused.  In addition to his penis, the 30-year-old is maturing rather nicely, as you’ll see on

When I’m picturing being in my own secret circle with Zylka and Dekker, it’s definitely time to end yet another column.  Since we ran long, I barely have time to remind you to check out, the site that will never leave you high or dry.  If you’ve got a question for me (even a repeat question), send it along to, and I promise to get back to you before Nick Jonas shows us what’s inside his trousers.  So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
