Morning Brew – Mon. March 26: “What Would You Do?” features a lesbian bride, Emily Blunt would totally play gay again


Good morning! I hope you all had a stellar weekend. Grace Chu did — she went to the GLAAD Awards in New York City and will have a recap of it all for you later today.

If you’re on Tumblr, why don’t you give us a follow? We’ll try to make it worth your while!

Emily Blunt joked with Time that casting agents must think that she’s up for anything, based on her versatility and different kinds of roles:

From lesbians to bonnets, she’ll do it all!

I wish more casting agents would think of her when casting lesbian roles. I feel like she can do better than My Summer of Love, and I’d love to see her try. Perhaps in an Imagine Me & You type film.

Perhaps Angela Robinson can work on that for us. But first, the out writer/director has sold a “supernatural teen thriller” to Paramount Pictures. This is where I ask “a lesbian supernatural teen thriller?” I can only hope.

AE reader tasdj sent us this video from Danish pop star Medina, in which a really adorable lesbian couple go through some trials. Sad!

SheWired tipped us off to The Daily Beast‘s interview with out film exec Nina Jacobson, who is a producer of The Hunger Games. Power lesbian!

Next month, Glee‘s Ryan Murphy, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Cory Monteith, Lea Michele and Chris Colfer will talk about the making of the musical show on Inside the Actor’s Studio. Check it out on Bravo on April 9.

Jaime Pressly has joined the cast of the upcoming Bad Girls adaptation. She’ll play Melinda, “a prison warden … a sexy, ominous woman with a sadistic streak enjoying cat-and-mouse games with her inmates who are terrified by her.” I like the sound of that, although I’m so used to seeing her play more comical roles as of late. Should be interesting!

Across the Page columnist Heather Aimee O’Neill wrote this great piece for Salon about her son coming out to her as straight. Spoiler alert: She did not shun him.

Check out this segment from Friday’s episode of What Would You Do? in which hidden cameras capture how customers react to a lesbian bride being refused service at a bridal shop.
