Ewan's Next Gay Storyline


Our friends over at The Playlist noticed a recent announcement about a mysterious new film from director Mike Mills (Thumbsucker) called Beginners, set to star Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer. What's this project about, they wondered? Well, you know how we like to shed light on secret loglines at Movieline, and we do have the script, so here's the exclusive plot synopsis: McGregor plays a young man rocked by two announcements from his elderly father (Plummer)...one, that he has terminal cancer, and two, that he's coming out of the closet. The role of Plummer's handsome younger boyfriend has not yet been cast, but we're frankly shocked that the famously gay-friendly McGregor (soon to be seen canoodling with Jim Carrey in I Love You Phillip Morris) isn't playing that part instead.

    You make it sound like being gay is something to be ashamed of, or that by playing gay roles, Ewan is somehow less of an actor, or his carrer has taken a turn for the worst. What is wrong with you prejedice, homophobic and ignorant Americans?!
