Contract Playa: A Review Of SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD Comments (0)

T-scotty-bowers“I created the rainbow in Hollywood.” — Scotty Bowers (Image via Altimeter Films)

Five years ago, I posted a review of the book Full Service, the as-told-to story of Scotty Bowers, a 21430294_1815779352046499_9204368091529911051_nHollywood gas station owner who claims to have become a procurer for some of Hollywood's biggest names from the '40s onward, including Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, George Cukor, Rock Hudson and many more.

Along with hooking them up with sex partners, he also claims to have had sex with many of them himself, including Bette Davis, Walter Pidgeon and both Cary Grant and Randolph Scott.

Gore Vidal on Scotty Bowers

The comments on my review were largely critical, blowing him off as a liar in spite of the support of Gore Vidal and other serious people who wanted us to know Scotty was the real deal.

I prefer this take: 

Now, director Matt Tyrnauer has shot a compelling documentary on the man of 1,000 facials, and I think Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood far surpasses the book as both art and documentation that Bowers was probably every bit as busy as he boasts ...

Ross Lynch On Playing Jeffrey Dahmer, Welcoming Gay Fans & Becoming A Star Comments (0)

Twenty-one-year-old Ross Lynch, who starred as a crushworthy musician on Disney Channel's Austin & Ally for five years and who headed up two Teen Beach Movie installments for the network,  isn't on the typical Mouse House trajectory of some of his forebears.

When I met him back in 2012, he struck me as a potential future Michael Jackson or Justin Timberlake, displaying effortless dance skills and bursting into song while I attempted to corral him for an interview for the teen mag I founded. He also had mega-charm, enough to stick out among a cast of talents that included similarly charismatic Garrett Clayton.

Instead of a solo journey, Lynch surprised me by eschewing the Hilary/Miley/Demi/Selena route, focusing on music with his mostly-family rock band R5 and, now, by choosing a movie role that represents a 180 from his perky Disney character Austin Moon, that of a teenage Jeffrey Dahmer before his serial-killing days in the well-received My Friend Dahmer.

It's a disturbing film, one that could best be described as coming-of-rage.

My Review of My Friend Dahmer

In the film, which is in theaters now, he brings to life a pathologically awkward teenage boy whose family trouble, social-outcast status and verboten, unannounced homosexuality make him strangely relatable ... until you remind yourself that the character would, in real life, grow up to kill and eat a bunch of innocent dudes.

I spoke with Lynch about this unique moment in his life and career, when everybody's niece knows him and more adults are getting the memo every day, as well as all about the bold-as-hell movie that is helping to put him on the grown-up map ...

The above letter was handwritten by a very young Cary Grant (when he was still Archibald Leach). Looks like gayscript to me.
