Great Moments In Movie Shelves #64

We're going on forty years that I've been on this great big ball of dirt and you know what, I think my greatest failure as a human being is the fact that it's been going on two full years since The Normal Heart aired on HBO and I have never posted these pictures of Matt Bomer in 80s jeans standing in front of a wall of books.

I suppose it is on the one hand a good thing that this extravagance is my greatest fault. I have not, to the best of my knowledge, actively murdered anyone in cold blood. So there's that. On the other hand, it's not just the jeans and the books but it is also...

... the making out with Mark Ruffalo in those jeans in front of those books. This is a very big fault. Very big. In the words of some asshole, huge. If I was a Catholic I'd have to say like seventeen Hail Marys over this, or whatever it is that those people do, with the whipping and what not. Kinky ass Catholics. 

I was reminded of all of this while reading the great Joel Grey's autobiography, by the way - which is a fantastic read and highly recommended - because he talks therein about playing Mark Ruffalo's role on stage back in the 80s and how it helped him come to terms with his own gayness. I guess I need to find somewhere that will let me play "Ned Weeks" then so I can come to terms with my own stuff, while also maybe get to make out with Matt Bomer in those jeans in front of bookshelves.

And of course, the late Brad Davis also was in that play, controversial at the time.

I'm so jealous of Matt Bomer, as he's probably one of the few guys who has actually physically snuggled with Mark Ruffalo and seen him totally naked.
