Bret Easton Ellis has discharged all CBS sitcoms as crap – The American Psycho story writer has taken to Twitter to slam the offer that Matt Bomer should not be the star in a “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie because White Collar star is too ‘openly gay’ to play.
Ellis has decided to weigh in on the debate later began tweeting about gay actors playing straight roles on television, singling out Neil Patrick Harris. According to Bret, (48-year-old), wanted it so bad that he tweeted – Feel complicated about Neil Patrick Harris on “How I Met Your Mother” – central joke being that he’s a gay actor playing a… womanising businessman.
The American novelist tweeted – Why not cast Jason Segel in the Neil Patrick Harris character in How I Met Your Mother? Because the meta-joke is that Harris is openly gay. Lame… He added: You don’t think the makers of “How I Met Your Mother” didn’t know that Neil Patrick Harris was gay and that would be part of the joke… Really?
Look, I like Neil Patrick Harris especially when he’s hosting “The Tonys” but How I Met Your Mother is, like all CBS sitcoms, a piece of crap. Ellis then referenced The Big Bang Theory, shouting the popular series another terrible CBS sitcom.
And please don’t get me started on the gay “The Big Bang Theory” – I’m too tired to go there,” he wrote. Gayness personified.
