“I grew up around gay people my entire life, basically. That’s possibly why I’m quite camp, and some people think I’m gay when I meet them, which I think is awesome. It’s always good to keep them guessing.” – Daniel Radcliffe shows his metrosexual side…and then some.

What if I told you someone of note would like to play the fabulous Carol Channing in a biopic? What if I told you that someone was Johnny Depp? Of course, he’s cross dressed in the past (remember “Ed Wood”?). Depp told an interviewer: “My dream role would be to play musical legend Carol Channing in a biopic of her life. I love her, I really do. She’s amazing. With all the digital technology available these days, I could probably pull it off.” When she heard about this idea, Channing weighed in: “It is not a new concept to me. Not at all. Men have been imitating me for as long as I can remember. In fact, most of the impersonations I have seen have had a five o’clock shadow. I imagine, when or if Johnny should portray me, he will succeed.” Now, if we could get Carol to play Johnny, we’d be onto something!

Sometimes intriguing casting happens behind the scenes. For instance, getting chosen to sing a song in a film can be quite a coup. And we can tell you EXCLUSIVELY that Adam Lambert has signed such a deal. Roland Emmerich has produced and directed such blockbusters as “Independence Day” and “Godzilla.” His latest project, “2012,” is due out on November 13th and is one of those star-studded end-of-the-world flicks – with a Mayan or two thrown in for good measure. Lambert just went into the studio to record a track for the flick – and Emmerich was impressed enough to consider using it for the closing credits. Bravo!

 

Speaking of casting, Cheyenne Jackson has just nabbed the role of “Woody” in the upcoming Broadway revival of “Finian’s Rainbow.” The production, which begins previews on October 8th and is selling tickets through the end of the year, is based on the Encores! limited run earlier this season.

Every so often we see less-than-flattering candid shots of someone who looks incredible under professional conditions. This time around it’s Channing Tatum. The one-time model has added a significant amount of mass to his formerly lean, mean, ripped physique. Only six weeks ago we got paparazzi snaps of him bouncing shirtless through the streets of Hollywood trying to jog off some excess weight. That look is a far cry from how he looks in the August issue of GQ. These shirtless pics show one of the most muscular and defined guys around. While I’m told this shoot took place around the same time as the jogging pics, the professional pics show nary an ounce of fat on his frame. What’s the secret? We hear a week of fasting and some judicious Photoshopping helped. You can see the before and after results on BillyMasters.com. And, what the hell – we’ll run his full-frontal pic, too.

Remember Ashley Parker Angel? He was the object of Lou Pearlman’s obsession in “O-Town,” had his own reality show and last year starred in the Broadway production of “Hairspray” alongside my bon ami Jenifer Lewis. He’s been focusing more on acting and recently booked a film, which he’s shooting down in Fort Lauderdale. We don’t know many details, but he took a photo from the set showing off his buff bod in a pose he calls “doing my best Matthew McConaughey.” I’d actually say he’s more Ryan Philippe, but you can’t lose either way.

And because I’m a giver (although I’ve been known to receive every once in a while), I’ll share some shirtless photo of that rapper Souljaboy that recently came into my possession. Hot body, but what’s impressive is what appears to be a double-digit appendage in his loose-fitting shorts.

This week’s brief “Ask Billy” question comes from Frankie in Baltimore:”Did you see John Barrowman’s nude scene on ‘Torchwood’? What an ass! Do you have any close up pics of it? And did I see his dick briefly?”

 

Starting with the dick, yes and no. When the surveillance camera showed him lying face up naked on the table, the letter “X” was strategically placed over his privates. You see something there, but not anything that’s discernable. As to his ass, it was front and center (to say nothing of plump and perky) and in full view.

 

Billy Masters can take your questions at Billy@BillyMasters.com and promises to get back to you before he tracks down Tatum’s airbrusher!  Until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
