OUTRAGE! ??? Eh, not so much.
James Rainey had a column in the LA Times today about the movie Outrage and the idea of outing politicians and others who are closeted homosexuals. It didn't really have much to add to the debate and was so bland one wonders why he wrote the article in the first place. Actually, the fact that this article appeared once the movie had left the theaters kind of shows that the filmmaker Kirby Dick might be right.
BUT THEIR WORDS WILL CONTINUE ON
Marc Rocco, son of Alex Rocco, and producer and director of Where The Day Takes You has died.

MOVIE TRIVIA: ROLES ACTORS PASSED ON
I just found out through my best friend that Jimmy Stewart was first offered the Ben Johnson part in The Last Picture Show, but turned it down. I loved Ben Johnson in the movie, but how good would Stewart have been. Stewart was also offered the lead in The Ballad of Cable Hogue, a part that went to Jason Robards--Stewart would have been great in that as well.
