"I mean, I wanted to see
myself in Denzel Washington."
-- I assume that Russian Doll and Tales of the City actor Charlie Barnett was probably being respectful (blahh) when he said the above to THR about the "on-screen character he most identified with as a kid," but I'm just gonna go ahead if he doesn't mind and pretend he watched the locker-room scene in Ricochet over and over and over again like I did and meant, uhh, something a little different. Something closer to what I'd mean if I said what he said. Something more akin to...
I have watched Murray Bartlett & Charlie Barnett's sex scene from the second episode of Tales of the City at least once every day for the past week -- I still don't think you HAVE to cast gays as gays but when it works it works (see also Tovey & Groff in Looking) pic.twitter.com/9jTVT2MFV7— Jason Adams (@JAMNPP) June 12, 2019
