Cher's Stuck Back in Television

Queers who aren't old enough to remember Cher's TV variety-show days will now get a chance to be entranced by all those sequined costumes. The Oscar- and Grammy-winning mother of Chastity is heading back to the small screen via the big screen, in a feature film called Stuck on You, from the comedy writing-directing team of the Farrelly brothers (There's Something About Mary and Shallow Hal). Cher is expected to portray herself as she heads reluctantly back to work in a primetime show - with a pair of conjoined twins (played by Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear) as sidekicks. One of the twins harbors acting ambitions and is thrust into the spotlight when the show becomes a huge hit. Production on Stuck will be starting soon in Miami.

He's Straight, But He Sure Doesn't Dress That Way

Cable network Bravo is finally giving gay men a chance to do what they were born to do - make straight men into better dressers. The network has ordered 12 episodes of The Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, a makeover show on which five gay specialists in the fine arts of grooming, fashion, interior design, manners, and cuisine will take hapless heteros and make them presentable. Out the door go the stained flannel shirts, mallard-duck prints, and greasy pizza boxes, and in come merino wool sweaters, Rothko reprints, and retro flatware. The trans-'fag'-mations hit the small screen this July.

Jolie Wings It in The World

Bisexual babe Angelina Jolie is getting ready to show us she knows her way around a cockpit. The Tomb Raider star will portray an accomplished female pilot in the upcoming thriller The World of Tomorrow, which is being billed as a sort of sci-fi version of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Set in the pre-World War II era, the adventure pairs Jolie's pilot with talented British hottie Jude Law as a swashbuckling colleague and Gwyneth Paltrow as a snooping journalist. Cameras roll in London in March.

You Tarzan, Me Hot and Bothered

Calvin Klein underwear-model fans will be happy to hear that Travis Fimmel, the sinewy, golden-locked Aussie heartthrob whose hot billboards actually caused traffic jams in London, is trading in his white briefs for a leather loincloth. Fimmel is starring in the WB's new pilot Tarzan. In this updated version of the jungle man's story, Tarzan is brought to New York City by his rich uncle, who runs Greystoke Enterprises, and there he meets up with a policewoman named Jane. Not too bad a gig for Fimmel, considering that when he first arrived in L.A. from Aussie-land, where he grew up on a farm, he had 60 bucks in his pocket. The pilot shoots this spring and could end up on the air next fall.
