Morning Brew – Fri. Sept. 28: A gay witch on “Switch,” Erin Daniels on “DTLA”

 
 

Good morning and TGIF!

Sorry there was no Brew yesterday. I was on a plane and there was NO WIFI. Can you believe that? The airline shall remain nameless but it was pretty tragic. But not as tragic as last night’s Grey’s Anatomy. Sniff.

Anyway, I’m here and queer for you. Let’s talk about lesbians!

Rebel Wilson talked with the The Advocate about the time she played gay in a movie.

Yeah, in A Few Best Men I play a lesbian character. I played the lesbian sister of the bride who ends up kissing a dude at the end, but she was like a full-on lesbian in that. And I beat out famous Australian lesbians for the role.

Hollywood, why can’t you ever have a lesbian without her kissing a dude? So rude.

Jack and Diane is available On Demand! I know what I’m doing this weekend.

Erin Daniels is part of Logo’s new series DTLA. That’s Dana Fairbanks guys! Also starring in the new soapy show is Sandra Bernhard are Julie Goldman.

The show premieres October 24 and Erin plays Dr. Carol Lazenby, aka a therapist.

Jessie J has written a book and split with a “long-time girlfriend.” These are things I had no idea about.

Speaking of splits, k.d. lang is officially single ya’ll! Although we knew she wasn’t with Jamie Price, the two have ended their domestic partnership, which sounds more like they are ex-roommates than ex-lovers. Shakes fists at government.

A Hong Kong business tycoon (I mean, when else do I get to use that word?) is trying to find his lesbian daughter a suitable male suitor, offering to pay them $64 million. She’s getting a ton of proposals, including nude photos from guys, which is probably making her gayer by the second. Parents just don’t understand!

If you need a reminder that Dianna Agron loves you, you gay person, here you go.

There’s a new show called Switch coming to the UK and Lacey Turner (East Enders) is playing a lesbian character named Stella. She’s described as “a go-getting advertising worker with a stressful job and a bitch for a boss” but is also — wait for it — a witch. All of her friends are too! Lacey said of her lesbian role:

I have never played anyone gay but it’s not a big deal. It’s the same as playing anyone else – only your love interest is a woman.

Exactly. BTW I’m going to watch this show. Supernatural lesbians are the best.
