Jonathan Bailey will star in “Fellow Travelers” opposite Matt Bomer

This means the story is being drastically rewritten. Bailey’s character is supposed to be a 21 year old ingenue having his first sexual experience with a man. Bailey is 34.

Bailey’s character is supposed to be much less attractive than Bomer’s character as well, while these two are both equally attractive.

The class difference between the characters will obviate the need for Tim to be that much younger than Hawkins. I'm very happy Jonny's going to play Tim.

by Anonymousreply 8July 11, 2022 8:50 PM

The class difference only really works because Tim is so young. Someone Bailey’s age (34) would be mid-career in Washington in the early 50s. Roy Cohn himself was only 25 during the Rosenberg trial.

Very odd creative decisions.

Yeah but verisimilitude aside this sot of thing doesn't play anymore, it's distracting to modern audiences. It's why you can't have a 30 year old playing Blanche Dubois now, nobody would be able to suspend their imagination watching that. Our reading of ages have shifted. An actor in their 20s might as well be 12 now

I get why they did it but it does kind of screw up the age dynamic since they both somehow at 44 and 34 look around same age.

[quote]Direct from The Pretty Boy Acting School. I don’t know who the audience is for this.

I wouldn't have phrased it like that but, yes. The only problem is that they both seem like the same type. Jonathan is very hot right now. He's a top out gay actor and these productions are very into the idea of casting two openly gay men in these sorts of roles now. While I think he's a solid actor, if he wanted that part, he knew it would be his.

It's just visually boring. We'll see how it plays out.

I didn't know much about Jonathan Bailey, and then I saw a supercut of his Bridgerton performance, Youtube videos of his stage work including musicals, and then "Crashing", the comic series on Netflix. He's strange and crazy and funny in "Crashing". There may not be much of a gulf between Bomer and Bailey as far as overall attractiveness goes, but there appears to be big one in terms of acting range.

The styling indicates early to mid seventies. Let’s say 1973, 20 years after the story begins. So the characters appear to be on the early side of middle age, let’s say 45 here. So that means the characters would be 25 in 1953. So are Bomer/Bailey going to spend the bulk of the series playing 25 year olds with blown out lighting and gauzy Vaseline filters?

Pretty sure there are no beach scenes in the book. I’m fine with that, though. Looks like they’re using the book as kind of a starting place for a more detailed story. Looks like it will be good.

Well yes Bailey seems like the type who will try to make conquests of his costars. Duckling will probably acquiesce if only due to his inherent submissiveness.

He’s pasty white with a tinge of yellow, like a custard.

For comparison, this is Bomer a few years ago on a beach vacation. He looks like he hasn’t seen the sun since then.

[quote] The characters will barely resemble what was written.

both actors are miscast, in ages, body types and demeanor. The book spans the '50s to the late '90s. they could have gone with the then/now double casting as was done in "My Policeman".

it may be a good story on film, but it will not be what the author wrote,

by Anonymousreply 166September 11, 2022 4:28 PM

The miniseries is being produced by Greg Berlanti’s trophy husband so it’s not a surprise that it’s so poorly adapted.

I have a feeling the 50s scenes with 45 and 35 year old actors playing twenty somethings will be excruciatingly embarrassing.

by Anonymousreply 167September 11, 2022 5:24 PM

And Bomer is also an EP, you know he wouldn’t allow anyone to entertain the thought that they would need to cast a younger actor for the fifties scenes.
