This amusing short film has been making the rounds of the interwebs for the last week, but I’m posting it in case you haven’t seen it yet (also, it’s still a slow news period). In the clip, comedian Louis C.K. explores the accidentally-on-purpose leak of a gay porn video in which he would star. A producer — played by a deadpan Bobby Cannavale — runs down the list of required sex acts that would really bring in the big bucks. (The whole thing is a promo for the comedian’s forthcoming show on the FX network.) A couple of our Constant Readers have expressed disappointment over what they perceive as the clip’s underlying tone of homophobia — that Louis C.K. has sunk so low he’ll consider man-on-man sex to revive his career. Thoughts? CLICK HERE for the YouTube linkage.

    I missed the homophobic tone of the clip. If anything it seems to be a commentary on the “gay for pay” presence in the adult industry. Who knows? Maybe Malachi Marx had a similar conversation early on while considering career options.

    Agreed. Whines of homophobia are from the overly sensitive. This is a great piece. Very funny!

    I never liked his other show and while I really like many of the shows on FX this one I will be skipping

    Damn T-Bird!! Why did you put that in my head?! WOOF! Who’s his agent? Have Falcon or Randy Blue contact him! I need Bobby to have a sex tape!

    Nope. No homophobia here. I’ve seen Louis’ concerts on HBO and elsewhere. He’s pro-gay all the way. Looking forward to his new show as well.

    What a pity there was not a undress rehearsal!

    Louis isn’t progay. He just doesn’t care one way or the other. This was kind of funny, though. Not as funny as this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VABSoHYQr6k&feature=player_embedded , but funny. He should stick to standup.
