Default Men In Drag - LOL

I remember when 'Tootsie' came out inn the theatres - Dustin Hoffman did a fantastic job in the title roll. And who can forget Mrs. Doubtfire - campy as all get out but as hilarious as only Robin Williams could make it.

I've just about finished rewatching Hairspray - it's not all a bubbly light comedy but even if it was, it's fun. Christopher Walken as Mr. Turnblatt & his wife John Travolta are really, really good in their roles. Not once, looking at Walken acting to him would you think anything other than John Travolta is a very... large... woman. And not once, looking at Travolta acting the role, would you confuse him as a man. He's got the mannerisms, the walk, the vocal characteristics of a woman nailed.

Fun movie.

I still like the original one with Devine as Tracy's mom and Ricki Lake as Tracy.

I didn't know this one was a remake. I'll have to look for the original - thanks.

I swear Goggins would blow it out of the water in ANY role. That guy is just amazing. (Personal favourite is Crowder on Justified. He stole the show.)

Sue, he was a major character on both The Shield and Justified. He's currently on SIX (six part series, he's the captive SEAL) running on our History channel. If you have any way to watch either of the first two, they're definitely worth watching.

IWE nt to a local gay bar one night to watch a friend compete for the Miss title for the bar. I was sitting at the bar waiting for him to show up and a beautiful blonde came up and asked if I was with anyone. I thought I was being hit on, nope it was my friend already in drag. Sure fooled me. He was so beautiful in drag and handsome when not in dress.
