Gay Best Friend. Megan Mullally plays Paul Iacono‘s mother in an exclusive clip from the upcoming teen comedy, G.B.F.
The movie tells the story of two closeted best friends Tanner, (Michael J. Willett, United States Of Tara) and Brent (Iacono, The Hard Times Of R.J. Berger). While Brent longs for popularity, it’s Tanner who catches the school’s attention when he is accidentally outed. Soon, the three most popular girls in school fight to land Tanner as their gay best friend.
You may have noticed we’re now TheBacklot.com - these things happen, people grow up. We had fun as AfterElton.com, but it was time for a change. We’re still the same great site, just a little more mature. It’s like we went away to college. And according to ImNotReallyAKitty (who updated our story and did the incredible art), things have changed.
AE legally changed his name to The Backlot (Lot for short). He’s majoring in Film Studies, and pays $900 a month to occupy a small 1-bedroom flat (food and stuff included), in a dorm building which may-or-may-not be haunted. It sucks that he has to do his own laundry now, but it’s worth it since VH1 (who is taking music studies) can sneak over to spend the night. Especially when the scarey noises start, and absurd amounts of h/c ensue with VH1 comforting Lot about how he’s sure the building is not haunted (but it totally is). There is some difficulty with that, as Campus Dorms are gated and curfew for 10pm (cue epic stories of Lot’s liberation from dorm prison, and people sneaking out).
There’s more. Because the gang is all here - VH1 of course, we can’t be without our sweetie. EW, Vanity Fair, MTV, plus some new friends for you to meet.
