Eichner Plays Lynde

Billy Eichner has announced plans to make a biopic about Paul Lynde called Man in a Box.  In announcing the project, Eichner made another pronouncement.  “Gay actors are never, hardly ever, I should say, allowed to play our own gay icons.  Harvey Milk, Freddie Mercury, Elton John.  Where are the gay actors?  And it’s not to take anything away from those performances, which were excellent.  But why don’t we get to tell our own stories?  I don’t think there needs to be a rule, like straight actors can never play gay, but it is so lopsided.  It never works in the other direction.  And we’re not even allowed to play our own heroes.”  No other details have been released…yet.
