WATCH: James Deans Rather Homoerotic Original Screen Test for East of Eden - Video

Posted below we have the original  screen tests for James Dean’s first movie in 1955, East of Eden.

The screen test featuring Dean and Richard Davalos rassling around in a bedroom, shirtless and as a bonus it also includes a crotch grab.

Since this is just a screen test, it was taken a bit out of context. In the scene that ended up being recorded for the actual movie, it is much more intense and much less homoerotic

*TRIVIA:   James  Dean and Paul Newman both competed against each other for the role of Cal Trask in the 1955 adaptation of John Steinbeck’s epic novel.


Will The Next Hollywood “Washed” Movie Be The James Dean Biopic “LIFE”? – Trailer

LIFE Trailer

The soon to be released movie Life, directed by Anton Corbijn, depicts the late James Dean’s relationship with photographer Dennis Stock. (Twilight’s Robert Pattinson) who followed the not-yet-famous Dean around New York City and to his hometown Fairmount, Indiana and captured him in a series of evocative, iconic photos that are still framed and hanging on bedroom walls across the globe including the famous LIFE magazine cover of Dean under the rain in Times Square, huddled up in his overcoat with a cigarette jutting out of his mouth.

But will the film include the facts that James Dean was gay or at the very least bisexual, into S&M and dabbled in a P/T career as a  male prostitute?

According to advance film festival reviews the answer is no.


HBO’s “HUNG” Star Thomas Jane: “I Turned Tricks With Guys, But Chose To Be Straight”

Thomas Jane, the star of HBO’s  fast sinking ratings series “HUNG” in an interview with with the L.A. Times admitted that he turned tricks with men as a male hustler when he first hit L.A. to make ends meet.

Hey, you grow up as an artist in a big city, as James Dean said, you’re going to have one arm tied behind your back if you don’t accept people’s sexual flavors. You know, when I was a kid out here in L.A., I was homeless, I didn’t have any money and I was living in my car. I was 18. I wasn’t averse to going down to Santa Monica Boulevard and letting a guy buy me a sandwich. Know what I mean?

You’re a lot more open to experimentation as a young man. And for me, being a young artist and broke in Los Angeles, I was exploring my sexual identity. And probably because of my middle-class, white blue-collar upbringing, I would have never had the opportunity to confront some of my own fears and prejudices had I not been hungry enough to be forced to challenge myself in that way.”

Jane, who’s not hard on the eyes , but who I have never pegged to be the brightest bulb in the box goes on to claim that he “chose to be straight”:

“And then you actually have a choice, and I chose to be a heterosexual guy because that’s what my DNA dictates and my nurture dictates that I am…I don’t know. I think up to a point it’s a choice. But I’ll tell you what — it’s not a choice until you’re open enough to experience both male and female sexuality. Until you’ve tasted the food, you don’t know whether you’ll like it or not, as my mom always said.”

Newsflash Jane.  You chose to be “gay for pay” to survive.  And all the waxing poetic and making it sound enlightening doesn’t change that. And make it any more noble. You sucked dick to survive..  PERIOD.  It wasn’t a “choice” it was a necessity.  (Oh and you are NO James Dean btw)

The only real choice ou made was to come out with this story now that “HUNG” is having a bad ratings season.
