“Hung” star Thomas Jane feels proud to have a long gay kiss on screen

HollywoodNews.com: Anyone who has ever seen Thomas Jane’s make-out scene with Vincent D’Onofrio in the film The Velocity of Gary knows that the Hung star is not afraid to take on a gay role.
But he raised a few eyebrows recently when he chatted with Vulture about his series Hung, and said: “I told HBO, the year I end up with a penis in my mouth is the last year of the show.”
Vulture caught up with Jane this week and he was eager to clarify things: “Of course, everything I said was meant in good humor, good fun. You know, I’m a fan of the gay community, just because I’ve grown up in Hollywood around them, I have family members who are gay, really good friends, co-workers, a lot of the writers on Hung are gay, so it’s amusing to think, obviously I would never be able to tell HBO what to do, or the writers how to write the character. But for me, it’s an expression of what I find interesting about the show.”
He points out that his male prostitute character of Ray becomes a conduit for two Midwestern women to express their sexual feelings for each other in one of the episodes, and in one of the other episodes, he dates a transgender woman.

Kurt Russell to star in Don Handfield’s ‘Touchback’

HollywoodNews.com: Freedom Films named Kurt Russell as the head high-school football coach in Writer/Director Don Handfield’s Touchback, which stars Brian Presley (“Home of the Brave”), Melanie Lynskey as his wife, (“Up in the Air,” “The Informant,” “Sweet Home Alabama”) and Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Christine Lahti as his mother (“Obsessed,” “Smart People”). Marc Blucas (“Knight and Day,” “The Jane Austin Book Club,” “First Daughter”), Drew Powell (“Straw Dogs,” “1408″), Sarah Wright (“The House Bunny”), Sianoa Smit-McPhee (“Hung”) and Kevin Covais (“College,” “Labor Pains”) also star. Filming on “Touchback” begins this week in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area.
Handfield and Freedom Films are thrilled to have Mr. Russell come aboard in the role of “Coach Hand.” “I am thrilled he responded to the material. He is an icon and brings a unique warmth, charm and strength to the character. I feel blessed to be working with such a legendary actor on my first film,” said Handfield.
“Touchback” marks Don Handfield’s feature directorial debut. “Don is a creative force, passionate, smart, and Freedom couldn’t be more pleased to embark on the journey of making this film with him,” states Presley who is also producing with Lisa Kearns of Freedom Films, Kevin Matusow, Carissa Buffel-Matusow, and George Furla.
Also joining the film is renowned football coordinator Mark Ellis of Sports Studio. Ellis has worked on many major sports action films of the past two decades including: “We Are Marshall,” “Invincible,” “The Rookie,” “The Longest Yard” and “Miracle,” which re-teams Ellis with Russell. “Touchback” also reunites Russell and Lahti for the first time since “Swing Shift.”
In “Touchback,” “Murphy,” played by Brian Presley, is a down-on-his-luck small town farmer and volunteer fireman whose glorious high school football days were cut short when he was critically injured during a playoff game. He often wonders “what if” and then is unexpectedly thrust from the present day back to that fateful instant that changed his life forever. But this time around “Murphy” has the choice to decide if he wants the life he has or the life that could have been.
“Touchback” is the first movie to go into production under a three-picture deal between Freedom Films and financier Palo Verde, a hedge fund founded in 2008 by Paul Ross & Tony Stacy. Presley is represented by Adam Griffin at Kritzer Levine Wilkins Griffin Entertainment

Miley Cyrus comedy “LOL” nabs “Twilight” star Ashley Greene

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The “Twilight” stars are staying busy, even as their latest vampire-werewolf love triangle storms area multiplexes.
Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the blockbuster franchise, will try her hand at comedy now that she’s joined the cast of “LOL,” the remake of a French film that’s being tailored for tween sensation Miley Cyrus. The Hollywood Reporter notes that Mandate Pictures will distribute the coming-of-age flick, about a teenager (Cyrus) who is dumped by her more sexually experienced boyfriend (George Finn of TV’s “90210″) while her divorced mom, played by Demi Moore, struggles to move on with her life.
Greene will play Cyrus’ high school nemesis. Thomas Jane, currently starring in the new TV show “Hung,” has signed on to play Cyrus’ father.
“Twilight” hasn’t necessarily shown off Greene’s comedic chops, but the girl apparently has a desire to loosen up a bit on screen. She’s also set to appear in the Jim Field Smith’s indie ensemble comedy “Butter,” about a butter-carving competition held in a small Midwestern town. Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Garner will join her for that 2011 release. Oh, and she’ll pop up in a tiny, two-part something or other titled “Breaking Dawn.” But I doubt anyone will see that low-budget, fly-under-the-radar flick. Right?
