'Brokeback' fans want cowboy experience
CNN ^ | 2/1/06 | staff

CHEYENNE, Wyoming (AP) -- Fans of "Brokeback Mountain" don't seem to care the movie was actually filmed in Canada.

They want the Wyoming experience.

The Wyoming Business Council's travel and tourism department has received hundreds of calls asking about scenery in the movie, which is based on Pulitzer Prize-winner Annie Proulx's short story about two gay Wyoming cowboys.

"When we tell them it was shot in Canada, they're still interested in Wyoming," said Michell Howard, manager of the council's film, arts and entertainment office. "They don't hang up and call Alberta. They're intrigued in the story."

Wyoming Business Council spokesman Chuck Coon said he hasn't seen a movie generate this much interest in the state during his 15 years with the travel and tourism department.

It's hilarious how the MSM can manufacture a "phenomenon" out of anything.

They'll find the cowboys in the bars in Wyoming a little less friendly than the turd burglars in the movie.

When we tell them about women, they're still interested in dirty, nasty gay sex.

Looks like the sequel is 'lubing up' already.

GAY ME UP, SAYS BRAD

Brad Pitt has played against type before.

But now the heart-throb is after his biggest acting challenge yet.

The 42-year-old hunk is desperate for a gay role, to cash in on the success of gay cowboy movie Brokeback Mountain.

A source told The Sun: "Brad has asked his people to find him a script to play a gay man.

"He wants it to be a story that appeals to both men and women and he wants it to be the edgiest work he's done.

"He's seen the critical acclaim that Brokeback Mountain has won and he wants a piece of it."

"Brad knows it would be seen as shocking to take on a gay role because he's seen as such a heart-throb.

Interview with a Vampire came damn close to a gay-out flick, did it not?

I washed my hands of Brad when he started diddling with Angelina. I believe she's rubbing off on him in more ways than one.

Brad should have never left Jennifer. She told him that taking a gay role would ruin his career in Hollywood. He was allegedly the front runner for Alexander, but she persuaded him to turn it down.

Good to see that fine, upstanding women named Angelina is broadening his horizons.
