Brandon Routh Can't Stop Being Gay

Oh boy... Let's just say that if there's any suits left in WB Studios who still believe Singerman is a viable feature film franchise, they're probably crapping themselves at the moment. Lost in all the hoopla of last weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, was a small bit of news from the panel for the new Kevin Smith film featuring Seth Rogen called Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

At said panel they showed some footage where Rogen and co-Star Elizabeth Bank's characters are at their high school reunion and they run into characters played by "Mac Boy" Justin Long and your favorite Singerman "star" makes a cameo. JoBlo details the carnage:
"Rogen and Banks are at their 10 year high school reunion. Banks is off flirting with Brandon Routh (SUPERMAN!), and Rogen is off to the side, talking to Justin Long--a dude with slick black hair and wearing a nice suite. They talk, it comes out Long is a gay porn star and Routh is his gay lover. Banks was hoping to hook-up with Routh, but not anymore, because... well, he's gay. Routh is not as open to being gay as Long is, and before you know it they're having a gay lovers quarrel. They then kiss and make up after Long tells Routh "You better shut your mouth before I f*ck it."
Ummm yeah.... Look I've got nothing against anyone who is gay. It's your life you do as you please. My point in pointing all of this out is, remember the good ole "Story that Just Wouldn't Go Away?" When WB had to basically launch a PR campaign to combat all of the 'Routh is Gay!" stuff so as not to have an emasculated Superman before the film even opened? (oops!) They even had banner ads on sites like SuperHero Hype! posing that very question.

Doing cameos like this, even if intended to be funny, just seem counterproductive to all that and will just seem to perpetuate that stereotype. He's not just gay in the movie, he's actively french kissing another man in a scene. Not to mention, this isn't Routh's first portrayal of a gay character. He's also done it in episodes of Will & Grace and Cold Case. Is he getting typecast or something?

I know he just recently got married apparently (although not that being married really means all that much anyway.) But if this guy has any hope of carrying on a multi-million dollar film franchise playing the proto-typical alpha male character in comic lore, you'd think he'd make some smarter choices in the roles he takes. Then again, maybe he knows something we don't...

BTW if anybody has link to the actual footage shown at Comic-Con, shoot us an email.

How many Apologists do you think are going to see this film? Steve Eunuch, Fagley and swright have atriple-date I hear...

BJ "My Career Went" Routh will come out of the closet after the Superman reboot hits the big-screen.

Mark my words.

Let's not forget that Christopher Reeve and Michael Caine also had a nice little make-out session in Deathtrap. If you're gonna rip one Superman to shreds for doing a gay role, might as well rip the other.

You watch your mouth, you Apologist 'mo.

BJ Routh has played "gay" characters FIVE times now, not just three. Cold Case, Will & Grace, MTV's Undressed, Singerman Peeps and now Zack & Miri. So you get your fucking facts straight before you try and drag Christopher Reeve down to BJ's level.

You fucking piece of shit.

First off, Reeve is irrelevant to anything on this blog other than being the standard by which Routh couldnt live up to.

Second, Reeve wasnt the subject of constant homosexuality rumors leading up to the release of Superman.

Thirdly, the kiss in Deathtrap was a peck on the cheek to the one in ZAMMAP, and Caine doesnt tell Reeve that he wants to fuck his mouth either.

Routh is gay. No surprises there. But that's why the apologists love him so, I suppose.

In Routh's defense, doing this cameo probably got him out of that bowling alley for a couple of days.

As far as Reeve is concerned, his curse was being an unforgettable Superman. Routh's curse basically right from the start was everyone assuming he's a midnight golfer.

I know an actor in Hollywood a gay male actor who has had sex with Brandon Routh a number of times, and so we are all clear his marriage is all a show.

He isn't the first actor who is in the closet who gets himself a fag hag, and gets hitched.

This is how they can stay a leading man in hollyweird.

But I know 100% fact that Routh is gay, and my friend says that he even swollows.

I couldnt find anything stating that Routh's character was gay on Undreseed. I tried searching to see, but the only thing I could find was a YouTube vid of him trying to bang a prude chick. Not that means anything mind you since apparently people changed orientation on that show every other episode mind you...

Actually, I saw a clip of him on YouTube from Undressed where this chick is trying to bang HIM, and he basically tells her: "No dice, I prefer something MEATIER". I'll try to find it again.

I don't know if he is gay or not, nor do i care but I've actually felt bad for Routh since the movie came out, because he seems like a nice guy. Singer put him in the worst possible shape to succeed though. Dressed him up in one of the worst Superman costumes of all time. Cast Bosworth opposite him who had no business playing Lois. And put him front and center in an un-exciting, boring, dull Superman movie, that was more of a soap opera than a superhero film. I still can't believe after 20 years, SR was the concept WB finally went with.

Actually, he seems like a not too bright guy, who will do ANYTHING for his "big break". Listen to interviews and the like that the guy has done. He is almost like a male "airhead", trying to get by on his "looks".

The lack of ANY kind of "career" post-Singerman Peeps shows his lack of any substantial acting ability. Only an IDIOT would believe he hasn't at least AUDITIONED for a SINGLE ROLE in 2 years.

Well look at it this way, other actors that starred in successful versions of Superman had a hard time getting other roles, because of typecasting. Routh was in a mediocre Superman film, that was not very successful. So he is in a really bad spot, in terms of getting other roles. Probably his only shot at a career was to play Superman a couple of times, that's dead in the water.

I don't think anyone was talking a "reboot" IMMEDIATELY after Superman The Movie came out, do YOU? If your best bud BJ had even the SLIGHTEST bit of charisma or TALENT, he would have made a film by now.

This isn't the 1950's, the 1970's or the early 90's. Christian Bale sure hasn't had a hard time finding other roles. Hugh Jackman either. Toby Maguire. Orlando Bloom. Johnny Depp. Viggo Mortensen. Should I go on listing people who have played the SAME character in MULTIPLE films without being "typecast"? Type-casting is DEAD, as long as you have acting ability.

The next "direction" your boy BJ will take is: "Jack & Coke, easy on the ice.".....

Did you bother to read what i said? I addressed all this. SR was not a hit, and he was front and center, so why would he have all sorts of options in front of him when he was unknown going in and is associated with failure coming out? Chris Reeve was part of a smash hit and had trouble with typecasting. Nobody cares about Routh because SR was not a hit.

My "Bud" how the hell is he my "Bud" exactly. He was not great in the film and the film itself was mediocre. All i said was "he seems like a nice guy and i felt bad for him". If you think anyone else playing Superman would have made that film a hit you are crazy. The movie was dull, lifeless and a total letdown. Chris Reeve himself could not have made SR a hit. Singer is 95% at fault here.

"Hugh Jackman"

X-Men was a hit

"Toby Maguire."

Spiderman was a smash

"Orlando Bloom. Johnny Depp. Viggo Mortensen"

All starred in big hit movies, what hit movie did Routh ever star in exactly? SR was his shot, it was a borderline flop. Like i said, his best shot at a career was playing Superman more than once. That is not going to happen.

ApologistPuncher said...

First off, let me remind you that YOU said THIS:

"Well look at it this way, other actors that starred in successful versions of Superman had a hard time getting other roles, because of typecasting."

So you are excusing BJ's lack of a career on typecasting. So I responded with a group of individuals playing the SAME characters in MULTIPLE BLOCKBUSTERS, who were NOT typecast. You then say:

"SR was not a hit, and he was front and center, so why would he have all sorts of options in front of him when he was unknown going in and is associated with failure coming out?"

So, which is it? Was he not able to get roles because he was "typecast", or was he not able to because he "starred" in that piece of shit? You can't keep making up new excuses for why your pal is a washout ALREADY.

"My "Bud" how the hell is he my "Bud" exactly."

The fact that you are making up excuses for his lack of future movie roles, combined with your pathetic "sympathy" for him makes him seem like someone important to you. If he isn't, let that 2X4 drift off into the sea of obscurity where he belongs.

Like the rest of the world.

Read it again, i said other actors that were in successful versions of Superman got typecast, i did not say Routh. And when i went on to say that SR was not successful, how hard is it to connect the dots there fella? You can't get typecast in a role that nobody really gave a shit about.


SR was a borderline flop, and Routh was completely unknown going in. So my point is, that's not a good spot for him to be in, going forward. As far as if he has talent or not, i would say probably not. He was mediocre in SR and supposedly got fired from some shitty Soap Opera years ago.

ApologistPuncher said...

I am not going to "connect dots" in statements made by a BJ Routh sympathizer. Behind BS, he is the #2 OFFENDER in the Singerman Peeps abomination. He put that suit on, he shit all over Christopher Reeve's portrayal, he took the money and RAN.

I for one, and I'm sure I'm not alone, am GLAD he hasn't done DICK since Singerman Peeps. He doesn't deserve to be a "star", seeing as HOW he got the role in the first place...

The Gobshite said...

No Way... Not the same guy who pitched a bitch fit because he was given the wrong type of make up just before a QA about SR. *sarcasm*

This guy is type casting himself. He has only done a few roles before and after Superman, and as you all point out, a good portion of them are playing an unmanly man.

Likewise, I agree, nothing wrong with gays, some of my best friends are queens, but the fact is none of them would make a good Superman for the mere fact that the character is wholly un-gay.

"He put that suit on, he shit all over Christopher Reeve's portrayal"

We 100% agree on this, of course he sucked shit next to Reeve. Chris Reeve was, is and always will be a legend. Singer basically told Routh to try and immitate Reeve, which is impossible to pull off and be as good as Chris. One point i was trying to make was, anyone going into that role the way Singer wanted them to play it was going to be in trouble. Singer's vision for SR, was a joke. Not only was the movie slow and mostly boring but, He tried to leech off a 30 year old franchise who's beloved star had passed away.

Returns was a work of art that is why it beat Hellboy, The Hulk, Wanted, and a shitload of other movies this summer. And the movie is 2 years old. Now that is the definition of a classic.

Seeing that the much smaller country of Australia is way ahead of France, that'd make the French athletes just like...wait for it...the failure that was Singerman Returns!

Sorry ReTard, they don't give out gold medals for body odour. That'd be a sport that the French would be number one in.

Yeah, the buzz about that film is just everywhere. Just like the buzz about that newcomer, Brandon Routh since his debut as Superman.

"Valkyrie" will probably go straight to cable. Like Routh's acting career.

All I hear about Routh anymore is that he's making a cameo as a homo in a Kevin Smith comedy, or that he may infact be gay.

Does anybody really think he'd have any chance of appearing in another big movie?

I was recently threaten to be banded form SuperheroHype because I posted a comment that I thought Singer let his personal life, him being gay and adopted, cloud his judgment and had him put subtext into SR that I fault just did not belong. I was also called a homophobe and to Grow Up. Well I fined the fact that I'm not even allowed to talk about Singers sexuality to be immature. I have said many occasions that I have no problems with ones sexuality the only reason I even brought it up was because I felt Singer let it, along with him being adopted, to make decisions that hurt this movie and the whole franchise very much. Well I think the Mods needs to grow up a little and get a gripe. So I’m a Homophobe. Just so everyone knows I have several friends, co-workers that are gay, I even on occasion sing Karaoke at a gay bar. Whatever it just goes to show the maturity of the average Singerman Supporter.

BS' sexuality is the ONE THING they have no "Apology" for. They CANNOT dispute that FACT, and instead try to do an "end run" around it by calling names.

BJ Routh was picked due to BS' "crush" on him, along with certain "favors" he performed to get the role. Sticking his noodle arms into that fetish-suit was the "icing on the cake" as far as BS went. The whole movie could go to SHIT, as long as he got to see him strut around in those booty shorts.
