Famous, infamous star in Georgia gay film shoot

Add this share

What do you get when you mix an award-winning gay director with Maria Conchita Alonso, YouTube drag teen turned porn star Chris Crocker and some hot gay actors? A comedy set in Georgia that needs your help. Director Matt Riddlehoover, who created and starred in the farcical “Scenes from a Gay Marriage,” takes to the crowd-funding site IndieGogo for his next as-yet-untitled comedy. You can be in on the ground floor and get perks for supporting the film. The comedy again stars Riddlehoover, plus Alonso in a dual role, Crocker in his first non-porn role outside his hot mess personal story, and Out On Film darling Charlie David (last year’s “Judas Kiss” and the 2009 festival’s “Mulligans”). The cast also includes Southern singer and Morning Fix fave Josey Greenwell, who has graced the manflesh appreciation column twice, plus sexy actor Jared Allman from “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys.” Allman sits there and looks pretty with Riddlehoover in the IndieGoGo pitch video above. The comedy, shooting in 2013, centers on a newly together gay couple in rural Georgia whose bliss is disrupted by friends and relatives. Scouts have already chosen locations in Atlanta as well as Hiawassee in the north Georgia mountains to add flavor to Los Angeles sets.
