Neil Patrick Harris And 9 Other Actors Who Donned Drag For Roles


Neil Patrick Harris Jared Leto John Travolta Michael J Fox Johnny Depp Eddie Murphy Marlon Wayans Rupert Everett Tony Curtis Jack Lemmon

So, Neil Patrick Harris basically won the Tonys 2014 (the whole thing) with his performance of "Sugar Daddy" from Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Harris has been making headlines as the lead in the Broadway show since he joined the cast earlier this year. He’s not the first actor to don drag for a role, these other actors have all dressed up like the fairer sex for performances in the past.

Actors Who Dressed In Drag Neil Patrick Harris has received rave reviews for his performance in Hedwig and the Angry Inch

'An Afternoon With Roger Moore': The Bond Actor On Remaking 'The Saint', Tony Curtis & UNICEF


Roger Moore Tony Curtis Audrey Hepburn

Spending an afternoon with Sir Roger Moore, regardless of the thousand or so additional members of the audience, is not something to be sniffed at. Moore has played a number of iconic roles during his 68 year career including James Bond and Simon Templar in The Saint.

Roger Moore
Roger Moore is "warming up" his fans before his autobiography due to be released next year.

Moore is on tour "warming up" his fans for his forthcoming autobiography which he hopes, should publishers allow it, to entitle "One Lucky Bastard" or, should this profanity prove too controversial, "One Lucky Fellow". The 86-year-old discussed his tour and upcoming memoirs with the BBC, it appears he had discarded other titles including "Moore on Bond or Moore or Less" after realising that he truly is "exceedingly lucky".

Christmas In Connecticut (1992) Review


Grim
Per the DVD box: She's hungry for ratings. He's hungry for dinner.

You'll be hungry for a better movie after suffering through this film, a vanity project and made-for-TV remake of the 1945 film, the first and only directorial experience by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The Last Tycoon Review


OK
The Last Tycoon, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's unfinished final novel, packs a pile of talent into its two hours but comes up a bit short in the end.

A shockingly lithe Robert De Niro stars as Monroe Stahr, a 1930s studio executive based on Irving Thalberg (a prolific producer who died at the age of 37, presumably from overwork). Stahr has lost loves in the past and a crushing chip on his shoulder in the present. He's a workhorse, but he wants something more out of life.

Operation Petticoat Review


Good
Pleasantly light comedy has Cary Grant and Tony Curtis on a pink WWII-era submarine with five women who tend to screw everything up. How the sub gets pink and how the chicks get aboard is all the fun. Hilarious for its oh-so-taboo treatment of things like underwear. Watch for Gavin The Love Boat MacLeod in a small role.

Bounty Hunters 2: Hardball Review


Grim
Wow, Tony Curtis gets two DVD releases this month -- Some Like It Hot and Bounty Hunters 2: Hardball. One will go down as a classic of cinema. One will not.

Naked in New York Review


Excellent
Earnest and cute, this essential '90s rom-com has Eric Stoltz going gaga over an enchanting Mary-Louise Parker, here in perhaps the least cynical role of her career. The story borders on irrelevance: They're New Yorkers who dabble in the theater, quickly hook up, then question whether they are truly meant for each other. It's all told in flashback as Stoltz drives his car en route to... where? Like I said, very cute, but some may find it cloying.

Sweet Smell of Success Review


Excellent
Astonishingly good look at a thinly-veiled Walter Winchell, the New York gossip columnist who reigned with terror as one of the most influential writers of his time. Lancaster burns up the screen as J.J. Hunsecker, who enlists Curtis's Sidney Falco to break up his sister's happy relationship with a musician. Cruel and unflinching, this movie is partially responsible for bringing Winchell's career down. Excellent cinematography, acting, dialogue, and scoring -- a must see.

Some Like It Hot Review


Excellent
"Nobody's perfect," as Joe E. Brown's Osgood memorably utters, thus finishing off one of Hollywood's greatest screwball comedies. And indeed, Some Like It Hot is far from a perfect film. But Billy Wilder took what might have been a rather banal story line and juiced it up into classic territory by squeezing Monroe, Curtis, and Lemmon into dresses and giving them some of the wittiest one-liners on film.

To be sure, Tony Curtis thinks he looks like Cary Grant in his sailor uniform but he really looks more like Charles Nelson Reilly, and Marilyn is visibly, obviously trashed out of her gourd for the entire picture, but hey, it was fun in the sun at the Hotel Del Coronado in the Prohibition era, and even the mob on their collective tails can't put a dent in the fun.
