Transcript HOUSTON VOICE » DECEMBER 24, 1999 A GUIDE FOR YOUR LEISURE TIME tALHiaa Hollywood wunderkind Matt Damon breaks from his usual hard-core heterosexual characters to do gay for pay by EARL DITTMAN The holiday season packs a few surprises for movie buffs. Directed and adapted for the screen by Oscar-winning filmmaker Anthony Minghella ("The English Patient"), "The Talented Mr. Ripley" is a bold artistic achievement. Sporting a dazzling ensemble cast that includes Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law and Cate Blanchett, "Mr. Ripley" is a gripping tale of romance and obsession that shocks the senses and penetrates the soul. It's also put one of Hollywood's rising stars in the role of a gay serial killer. And despite its stellar credentials, not everyone in Tinsel Town is convinced "Mr. Ripley" will pack theaters across Middle America this holiday season. Are they ready for an epic about a gay serial killer? Damon, whose portrayal as the film's title character recently garnered him a Golden Globe Best Actor nod, is clearly frustrated by the ever-growing perception that "The Talented Mr. Ripley" is simply a major studio's version of a gay movie. "Ripley's sexual preference is such a small part of who he is, but it seems to be the biggest thing that people are focusing on," Damon says. "He's an outsider who is uncomfortable in the skin he's in. And the fact that he's gay isn't the main thing that makes him feel alone or desperate for a better life. It's just a part of who he is. So, labeling it a 'gay movie' does the film an injustice." But in a recent interview, wasn't it long-time friend Ben Affleck who publicly pegged it, "Mart's gay flick?" "That's just Ben, and he said it jokingly ... 1 think," the 29-year-old Damon says with his trademark, >- Continued on page 18 ■EK2E2G838S® OPE From his flirtation with personal ads to placing his ruby slippers with those of other openly gay actors in Houston, Paul Hope offers light hearted insight into life behind the theater curtain by D.L. GROOVER Paul Hope beat me to the punch. In a recent lunch with this Alley Theater actor, I was about to comment on his striking resemblance to Broadway musical comedy star Jack Cassidy, when Hope dropped his name first. It really should be no surprise. Hope is quick on his feet, full of fascinating stories and intriguing backstage gossip. I lis love of theater is obvious, and when he gets on a roll he becomes a one-man parade. It's a gleeful, theatric quality that serves him well— an old-fashioned charisma rarely seen anymore. Beguiled by show business since his Dallas childhood when he would "put on a cape and jump out of trees," Hope still has that wide-eyed enthrallment on and off the stage. His mother knew how to calm her overactive tot. She placed him in front of the TV with "The Dinah Shore Show." "I'd be transfixed," Hope said. Show biz has been delighting Hope, a graduate of Houston's High *- Continued on page 20 Paul Hope as David Attenborough in the comedy 'Mere Mortals.' The actor says being openly gay has had little impact on his career.
