Some actors go to great lengths to prepare for roles. Look at Chris Pratt – the poor guy had to get insanely ripped and hot as hell!

But extreme weight gain and loss is relatively commonplace around Hollywood. What we’re interested in are the times your favorite handsome humans beat the everloving f*ck out of their bodies for your entertainment.

Sure, they could have just hired ugly people. But the important lesson here is that hot people are better at everything, even at being ugly.

What Time Will ‘The Boys in the Band’ Be on Netflix?

Published

By

With Broadway shut down, the Tonys canceled, and many shows that will likely never see the light of day again, 2020 has been a tough year for theater nerds. Thankfully, Netflix is offering a ray of hope with The Boys in The Band, a film adaptation of the 1968 play, produced by Ryan Murphy, and featuring the full cast of the 2018 Tony-winning revival for Broadway.

Co-written by Ned Martel and original playwright Mart Crowley, and directed by Joe Mantello, who also directed the 2018 revival, The Boys in the Band tells the story of a group of gay men in New York City in 1968, who gather to celebrate one of their birthdays. When the play first debuted off-Broadway in 1968, gay men were so widely ostracised that Crowley had difficulty getting any actors to agree to play one on the stage. Which is why, when the revival happened in 2018, the cast of entirely openly gay actors was a pretty big deal.

The Boys in the Band cast includes Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer, Andrew Rannells, Charlie Carver, Robin de Jesús, Brian Hutchison, Michael Benjamin Washington, and Tuc Watkins reprising their roles from the stage, offering a front-row Broadway seat to anyone with a Netflix account. You don’t want to miss out on this one, so here’s everything you need to know about The Boys in the Band release date and release time.

WHEN DOES THE BOYS IN THE BAND COME OUT ON NETFLIX? WHAT IS THE BOYS IN THE BAND NETFLIX RELEASE DATE?

The Boys in the Band will begin streaming on Netflix on Wednesday, September 30.

WHAT TIME WILL THE BOYS IN THE BAND BE ON NETFLIX?

New titles are typically added to Netflix at 12 a.m. PT, or 3 a.m. ET, on the morning of release. Therefore, The Boys in the Band will be on Netflix at 12 a.m. PT / 3 a.m. ET on the morning of Wednesday, September 30. (Or Tuesday night, depending on how you look at it.) If the clock strikes midnight on the west coast and you still don’t see The Boys in the Band on Netflix, trying refreshing the page, or logging out and logging back in.

Game of Thrones’ George RR Martin reveals scene he disliked most

Published

By

Game of Thrones author George RR Martin has revealed his least favourite scene in the series – and no, it isn’t anything that takes place in Dorne or season eight.

The hit HBO series came to an end last year, though a behind-the-scenes book called Fire Cannot Kill A Dragon takes a deeper dive behind-the-scenes of the show.

In one extract, Martin reveals that he wasn’t a fan of a season one scene that saw King Robert out hunting with three other men.

“Where we really fell down in terms of budget was my least favorite scene in the entire show, in all eight seasons: King Robert goes hunting,” the author explains (via Den of Geek). “Four guys walking on foot through the woods carrying spears and Robert is giving Renly shit.

“In the books, Robert goes off hunting, we get word that he was gored by a boar, and they bring him back and he dies. So I never did [a hunting scene]. But I knew what a royal hunting party was like.

“There would have been a hundred guys,” he continues. “There would have been pavilions. There would have been huntsmen. There would have been dogs. There would have been horns blowing – that’s how a king goes hunting!

“He wouldn’t have just been walking through the woods with three of his friends holding spears hoping to meet a boar. But at that point, we couldn’t afford horses or dogs or pavilions.”

Meanwhile, showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss recently opened-up about their controversial decision to omit the character of Lady Stoneheart from Martin’s books on the TV show.

Game of Thrones seasons 1-8 are now available on DVD and Blu-ray.

Gogglebox‘s Ellie Warner has changed up her hair again and she’s gone for a very bold look this time.

Six weeks after her last hair transformation, which saw her try out a half pink, half lilac ‘do that her sister and co-star Izzi Warner likened to “a candy floss cruella devil [sic]”, Ellie has made another dramatic change.

The star shared an excited photo to Instagram of her new pink and blue hair, which she jokingly compared to a frozen slushie drink.

“That face when you have tango ice blast hair,” she wrote, continuing with: “love it so much thank you @tombhair you da best #slush #myhairdresserisbetterthanyours”

Her followers praised her new look, with Izzi joking: “Do you want blue slush or pink? I’ll have both please,” and fellow Gogglebox star Sophie Sandiford commenting: “LOVE IT.”

Izzi recently shared a behind-the-scenes snap of her and her sister back together on their sofas for filming, revealing how excited they were to be back on the show after a summer break.

Izzi has also shown off her weight loss after giving birth to daughter Bessie Rose in February by sharing a photo on Instagram of her and partner Grant’s date night.

Gogglebox has implemented social distancing measures this year, with cameras rigged in the homes of the stars in both the regular and celebrity versions of the shows to prevent direct interaction with the crew.

Izzi was also temporarily replaced on the show by Ellie’s partner Nat earlier this year due to the social distancing rules, while best friends Jenny Newby and Lee Riley isolated together in order to keep filming.

Gogglebox currently airs on Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 4, with episodes available to catch up on via All4.
