Although it hasn’t been confirmed this one has some gay interest to, it’s about flight attendants and the lead character is called Larry Gaye – so we’re going to stereotype this one and call LGBT interest on it!
Mark Feuerstein, star of TV’s Royal Pains, has revealed he’s steering the movie Larry Gaye: Renegade Male Flight Attendant, which already has a great cast attached, including Feuerstein himself, alongside Stanley Tucci, Marcia Gay Harden, Molly Shannon, Taye Diggs, and Henry Winkler.
Variety reports the film, ‘follows womanizing, self-anointed ‘renegade’ male flight attendant Larry Gaye (Feuerstein), who must save the day when the airline he works for tries to eliminate flight attendants as a cost-cutting measure.’
The actor apparently fell in love with the script by his friend Mike Sikowitz (best known for writing several episodes of Friends) and has been steering it to production. Now it’s set start shooting in Janaury, with Sam Friedlander (Royal Pains) directing.
Feuerstein commented, “I can’t believe we get to make this ridiculous, fun and incredibly funny. “This character’s not just a male flight attendant – he’s a renegade male flight attendant. Larry Gaye makes his own rules and then he breaks them. This is my ‘Rocky!’ I’m so excited!”
