My buddy Stephen Guarino covers Frontiers—and it's about time!
In the feature, Guarino's multiple projects are almost impossible to sort out (some cool gays werk, Guarino works), but reading about his big break in meeting Rosie O'Donnell and landing a spot on The Big Gay Sketch Show and later duking it out for a spot on SNL that he didn't get are highlights.
Now, he's back with the Logo series Gay Skit Happens, which he calls “post-millennial” in its approach, saying, “A lot of the work is quicker, and it's mostly location-based. We're also doing it quarterly, instead of week after week.”

I spent some time with the cast of Hustling in honor of its second season premiere last night, including a revealing Q&A with creator/director/star Sebastian La Cause:
The episodes we screened contained precious little of hysterical Stephen Guarino (as a porn agent) and Gary Cowling (as a career counselor)—these two should get their own spin-off!—but were otherwise filled with what we've come to expect from La Cause's hustling drama: solid acting, witty writing and unexpected situations. This season also benefits from much better production values, even though I though the kick-off season was already remarkably well done on a shoestring.
Daphne Rubin-Vega continues to bring real depth to a part that could easily have been a throwaway, and veteran actress Sharon Washington is on hand as the trash-talking mom who will never understand her son's direction in life.

A little atmosphere, including La Cause's introductory speech, can be soaked up here.While there, I ran into my buddies Andrew Glaszek, one of the main stars, and Guto Bittencourt. Both, like La Cause, are Broadway Bares alumni. Guto's got a hot song and video that's about to drop (stay tuned) and Andrew was teasing us about sexy developments involving his Hustling character. Sounds like La Cause's character has been a bad influence!
Speaking of which, this season definitely ups the ante when it comes to sexy scenes; everyone was showing ass crack, including Guarino (who I bet had that in his contract—he's proud of it!) and there were several tastefully and tastily filmed horizontal throw-downs, including an eye-opening kick-off featuring a busty Wilson Cruz.
If anything about the series feels unreal, it's how appealing the johns are. But while titillating, the hustling isn't really the core of Hustling, ironically.
