Who will play Scotty Bowers in the new movie based on his life — and why is it being written by Seth Rogen and not somebody gay?
These are the big questions now that it's been announced that Luca Guadagnino will direct the adaptation of Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood from a script by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
Casting is not available, but I see someone like Taron Egerton, IMO. NO need for it to be a gay actor; Scotty, who died in October, knew his way around a penis but certainly was not gay.
I liked the book, I loved Matt Tyrnauer's far more interesting doc, and I am very hopeful that this movie will be everything that Ryan Murphy's Hollywood was not.
Or maybe even just be ANYTHING that it was not.
Great Scotty footage here, not too long before his death.
