Who's Who? in the New DC Studio 54: Gaylo.  In another dimension a group of alien sentient disco balls watches and studies human behavior, known as Oral Co.  After a gay hustler falls victim to a rough trick, a nosy member of Oral Co. takes pity on the young, dead ho, accidentally bonding with the corpse. The Oral Co. reanimates the amnesiac hooker, and they adopt the identity of John Dough to fight crime. The only problem is that the orb has a female energy, and the dead hustler is gay! Holy gender benders, Batman! A chick caught in a twink's body!


 

 

 




Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the '70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael's first published book, Homo-Hero's Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the "Divas and Lassoes" panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his "underground" status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).

Magic-Mike-Movie-PosterWhen you are given the assignment of interviewing Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum for Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike, honestly, it’s not a tough assignment.  The actors play male strippers and wear very little clothing in this often dark portrayal of a lifestyle that may seem cheesy onstage, but it is fraught with its own demons.  You can tell the guys had a lot of fun on set and during their requisite “Stripper Camp” before filming began, because Tatum swears that the moves from Magic Mike are responsible for McConaughey’s recent nuptials.  


Take a look at the iVillage interview here:

Abe Lincoln MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy



Lizzie Borden took an axe,
And, gave her mother 40 whacks.
When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.


And, Abraham Lincoln? What did he do when he picked up a silver-laden hatchet?  Well, open a can of good old fashioned whoop @$$ and annihilate a bunch of vampires while ending slavery and The Civil War, all at the same time. Or, at least that is what the new film Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, directed by Timur Bekmambetov and based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, would have you believe.

 

Connor JessupA few episodes into the series, all of you fellow Falling Skies fans are nearly caught up with me in enjoying this exciting season. Those of you who know me know I work very closely with the Falling Skies cast, and it was a pleasure and a blast to interview my friend (online and off), Mr. Connor Jessup. Connor plays Ben Mason on Falling Skies, a character who spent most of last season separated from his family, only to step up into the main show spotlight this season. The studio has some amazing things planned for Ben this season, and below is a transcript of my interview with the man behind the middle Mason boy, if you'd like to learn more about him. -N

Gay OK MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

*Please note that this article is an opinion-editorial.

 

 

Me Tarzan, you gay.  You choose your battles; you pick your fights.

It should be no surprise to anyone (As they hyped the heck out of it!) that Northstar was joining the ranks of long-suffering heterosexuals by marrying his boyfriend, Kyle.

Should Marvel be praised for championing gay rights or condemned for jumping on the big, gay bandwagon following Obama's day late, dollar short, half-@$$ed endorsement of same sex marriage?  Mind you, I'm not complaining; any furthering of gay rights is good in my book.  You choose your battles.

BraveWhen I attended the D23 conference last August, the trailer for Disney•Pixar's Brave struck me as a strong departure from their typical animated fare. We don't have a male lead or a helpless princess or a film with a built-in merchandising empire.  Instead, we have a strong, stubborn, independent, and fierce gal by the name of Merida.  She wants to live life on her own terms, but she is going to learn the hard way how to get there.  It is a gorgeous film, but I am not sure it is for everyone.  Here are my three reasons to see Brave:

Steamy Spoilers!

Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey dance half naked for roughly 90 minutes . . . that's all!

Rock of AgesIt was hard not to act like a giddy fan when I was offered the opportunity to interview some of the cast of Rock of Ages.  I am a huge musical theatre geek, and this movie was my Avengers, Hunger Games, and Prometheus all rolled into one film.  Yep, this was my summer movie.  Rock of Ages, helmed by director Adam Shankman, follows the tale of a small town girl . . . oh, you know how the song goes.  It takes you back to a time in Los Angeles when the Sunset Strip was the hub of music, but changes were brewing with the emergence of synthesized music and the rebirth of boy bands.  While rock never dies, it is fun to take a step back in time when hair bands ruled the airwaves.  

BLONDERWITCH MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

 

Thunderbolts is one of those titles that is always good when I read it, and I always drop off at some point for some unknown Bermuda Trianglesque reason.  Luckily, Thunderbolts has a history of re-inventing itself in fun and interesting ways, perhaps intentionally to bring back readers to the title.  They must be doing something right; numbered at #175 is unprecedented with rampant revisions and renumbering ruling the day. 

I should say here that I was a huge fan of the b@$tard child of Marvel's Civil War, Dark Avengers.  I was sorely disappointed when it was canceled after only 18 issues.  So, now it appears the latest Thunderbolts makeover comes in the form of a melding with the Dark Avengers concept. Color me intrigued.  I was initially drawn in by the beautiful cover by Mike Deidato, Jr. (That man can draw!) The cover did not prepare me for the surprise I was in for.
