What a night on SNL lkast night as Robert Smigel’s “Ambiguously Gay Duo” finaaly went from 2D studs to star-studded live-action thanks to an out-of-control “flesh ray”. (Live GAY ACTION starts at about the 2 minute mark)
Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm played “Ace” and “Gary” and their nemeses were played by a who’s who of comedy that included Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, and host Ed Helms.
And they aren’t even life size and anatomically correct! (Forgive me, its a slow day)
The dolls are part of a premium-price collectors’ series for adults that Mattel calls the Barbie Fashion Model Collection. Although there have been Barbies and Kens based on other TV series, among them “I Love Lucy” and “The X-Files,” the dolls will be the first licensed line for that collection, Mattel says, with a suggested retail price of $74.95 each. Mattel is licensing rights to the characters from Lionsgate, the studio that produces “Mad Men” for the AMC cable channel. There will be 7,000 to 10,000 copies of each doll, to be sold in specialty stores and on two Web sites, amctv.com and barbiecollector.com. The characters to become dolls are Don Draper, the show’s leading man; his wife, Betty; his colleague at the Sterling Cooper agency, Roger Sterling; and Joan Holloway, the agency’s office manager who was Roger’s mistress.
But where are the tiny cigarettes?
During a press conference E!’s Ted Casablanca and Taryn Rider asked “hotter than hell” actors Jon James Franco and John Hamm about the Prop 8 Trial in California and how it might relate to the the courtroom trial in the film “Howl” about openly gay brat poet Allan Ginsberg which both actors are starring in thats debuting at the Sundance Film Festival
Said Hamm: “There’s a line in the movie [that says] ‘I think that publicity engendered by this trial is going to bring this poem to a much wider audience than it ever would have had.’ I think that argument can certainly be made for the Prop 8 situation, where publicity engendered by all this brings to light the absurdity of ascribing second-class status to an entire group of people. The more people that see that…I just think in a lot of ways the publicity and press surrounding these issues will only serve to help.”
Said Franco: “Like I said before when Milk was coming out, I hope we’ll get to a time soon where we’ll look back and say, ‘I can’t believe that we were discriminating against this whole group of people and saying, ‘You don’t have the same rights as everybody else.” I hope that the time comes very, very soon, when we can all look back and say that was ridiculous.”
