Russell Tovey, off-of ears, who, as chance would have it, we stood next to in the Wardour Street Pret a Manger today as he ordered a skinny flat white. Skinny? Honey you don’t need to lose weight… Anyway, where were we? Oh yeah, Russell Tovey has a new job. It’s his first big American break and it’s in a show called Looking.
They’re saying it’s like a gay version of the hit series Girls. Girls for those who don’t steal television from the internet was a quirky New York show about some girls. They said it was like Sex and the City but the real version where writers of a single column don’t get to live in the heart of Manhattan with a collection of designer shoes and hair that just stepped out of a salon but have to live in Brooklyn in squalor and have fat arses.
Anyways, anyways… Russell, who usually plays straights, here plays a gay who has made a load of money. Which, come to think of it, is one of our favourite kind of gays. We just hope there’s lashings of nudity. Now start learning how to steal television off the internet.
Russell Tovey to star in 'gay Girls'. That's not 'lesbians' it's a version of 'Girls' that is about gays. ,
