News Brief

The Sun: "Hollyoaks'" Max set for new love.

Detroit Free Press: Tonight is the season premiere of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" (9 p.m., Bravo). It's the last makeover rodeo for the Fab Five, led by stylishly snarky Carson Kressley, as the Village People of male fashion fabulousness unfurl their final season of episodes. The kickoff features two editions of "Queer Eye." The offbeat first is a spoofy fun "Ultimate Straight Guy" pageant. "All My Children" daytime diva Susan Lucci hosts as made-over men from previous seasons return to compete tongue-in-cheek. Chic? You be the judge.

Digital Spy: Former "EastEnders" actress Lucy Speed has joined the cast of "The Bill" – following in the footsteps of a long line of ex-Walford stars.

Gay Wired: Talent Agent Michael Bruno is interviewed.
GayWired.com: I have to say—the stereotype on soaps is that people can’t act. So when you’re casting people for "I Wanna Be a Soapstar, what are you looking for?"

Michael Bruno: You really need a look. If people say, ‘Oh, they don’t need to be good looking', they’re lying. You really need the best looking person who is actually a good actor—there’s 60 pages of dialogue a day, so you really need to know what you’re doing. Sometimes they’ll look the other way if someone is so beautiful, and they hope they’re going to get better, and usually they do get better. But it’s a look, and it’s typically youth oriented—we really want to kind of look for 18-30. And you want those Shemar Moore’s, Steve Burton, Austin Peck, Cameron Mathison—and it’s usually the guys you want.
