Lee Daniels casts Alex Pettyfer as gay action hero


Lee Daniels has cast Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike) in his upcoming action movie, which will center on a pair of gay action heroes.

Speaking to Out, Daniels said to think of it as a gay Mr. and Mrs. Smith, “but the two good-looking guys [are] the action heroes… [and] we don’t find out they’re gay until the end of the movie.”

Spoiler alert!

Daniels is still looking for a black actor for Pettyfer to play against, and bring his dream of an “interracial love affair action movie” to life.

“Alex Pettyfer is in it, [but] I have to find the right black guy opposite him. He’s so hot, isn’t he? So hot. And so aware of his hotness in a way that’s so…I love him to death.”

Lee Daniels’ previous effort, Lee Daniels’ The Butler (actual title), was a massive hit at the box office, so he’s confident he’ll be able to get the money together for a follow-up, no matter the subject matter.

The picture does not yet have a title, but Lee Daniels’ Gay, Interracial Love Affair Action Movie has a certain ring to it.
