Transamerica: The Other Queer Film
Marisa Coughlan & Kevin Zegers
Felicity Huffman
Diane Kruger

New York, November 29, 2005 – Tuesday was the night for queer-themed films on both coasts. While Brokeback Mountain was unspooling in L.A., Transamerica made a quiet New York debut, weeks after its bigger, splashier Hollywood premiere. (Transamerica actually screened in the Big Apple last Spring, at the Tribeca Film Festival, when the Weinstein brothers picked it up for distribution.) None of the other Desperate Housewives stars, nor her husband, William H. Macy, was at the screening to cheer on Felicity Huffman’s much buzzed about performance. The very handsome Kevin Zegers, who plays Huffman’s son in the film, seemed quite smitten with starlet Marisa Coughlan, who is ten years his senior.

Francesca Gregorini, right, with girlfriend

Los Angeles, November 29, 2005 – New parents Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams must really be nesting in their new house in Brooklyn, because they didn’t go to the Hollywood premiere of Brokeback Mountain. Anne Hathaway didn’t make an appearance either, so Jake Gyllenhaal had to satisfy himself with director Ang Lee. Lee said he had Jake and Heath do the make-out scenes "five or six times", and that they’re both “great actors”. Ahem.

Anyway, it was an odd assortment of folks – Lindsay Lohan, Christian Slater, Chad Allen - who checked out the make-out scenes. Francesca Gregorini, who Portia de Rossi left for Ellen DeGeneres, showed up with her current girlfriend.

 
Governator Back to Movies?
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger
Jamie Lee Curtis
Ben Affleck: caught

Los Angeles, November 28, 2005 – We thought it was a True Lies reunion when Tom Arnold, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis came together at the premiere of The Kid & I, but, it turned out, Curtis and Schwarzenegger both have parts in the film. We don’t know politics here at Open All Night, but Arnold may be skulking his way back to movies – we hear this governor thing isn’t going so great.

Someone actually came out and asked how to address the newly-separated Jamie-Lynn Sigler. “Sigler”, she replied. Apparently, Jamie-Lynn hasn’t notified imdb.com, where, as of 11/29/05, she’s listed as “Jamie-Lynn DiScala”.

Ben Affleck tried to duck in unnoticed, waiting until paparazzi were madly photographing someone, and making a dash behind her up the red carpet. He’s too slow.

 
Celebrity-Stuffed Thanksgiving Day

Carrie Underwood
Al Roker & Aaron Neville

New York, November 24, 2005 – While most of you were watching football, stuffing the turkey, and stuffing yourselves, we were traipsing up and down Broadway, chasing celebs and dodging wayward floats in Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day parade.

This year’s parade boasted a range of talent to appeal to all ages. Rihanna, The Click Five, B5 and Japanese pop phenom Puffy AmiYumi thrilled the younger set. LeAnn Rimes, Kristin Chenoweth and Jai Rodriguez filled out the middle range, while Tommy Tune and Rita Coolidge had boomers chirping. A contingent of New Orleans musicians, including Aaron Neville and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, took part in the parade.

Upon seeing our cameras, Beach Boy Bruce Johnston demanded to know if we were paparazzi. Huh? “I live across the street from Oprah Winfrey. The helicopters always overheard drive me nuts”, he clarified. (Whew! We don’t have a helicopter, but if you’d care to give us Oprah’s address…)

The unfortunate balloon accident occurred right in front of American Idol Carrie Underwood. She was unharmed, but had to wait while they cleared away the debris.
