Michael Urie Attempts To Learn The Football Basics In Newest Partners Promo

Filed under: TV News

It's football season and when the first season of Partners premieres on Monday, Michael Urie is going to let a straight man try to teach him all about America's favorite sport.

Based on the newest promo for the show (above), it doesn't go so well.

Maybe the NFL just isn't his thing, but that's okay! There are plenty of other sportball leagues out there to enjoy.

We suggest dodgeball. There are a lot less rules and it's a lot more fun!

EXCLUSIVE! Partners Main Title Sequence!

Filed under: TV NewsMichael UrieSophia Bush

Partners doesn't premiere on CBS until September 24 at 8:30 p.m., but we've got the main title sequence for you NOW, which features a crazy cool theme song sun by Imagine Dragons!

The new comedy from the creators of Will & Grace stars David Krumholtz, Michael Urie, Brandon Routh and Sophia Bush as four friends that make up three different couples — one gay, one straight and one that is all business.

Based on the simple, yet fun little title sequence, we're loving it already!

And while we don't think the song will become as iconic as I'll Be There For You of Friends fame , those days of the sitcom are over. Viewers prefer something short and sweet before the laughs start rolling in, which is exactly the kind of theme song that was created from Imagine Dragons' track On Top Of The World.

More On The Homophobic Newsweek Article!

cjmu.jpg

First it was Cheno and now Cheyenne Jackson and Michael Urie are calling out Newsweek writer Ramin Setoodeh who criticized gay actors playing straight characters!

Both actors attended the talk-back Monday night of off-Broadway play The Temperamentals and spoke out about the article. Jackson said:

“It was infuriating on so many levels. Not only does [Setoodeh] say that a gay man can't play straight, he got personal, picking on Sean Hayes in Promises, Promises, [pointing out] certain scenes where he thinks [Sean] is stiff and uncomfortable. And then he picks on Jonathan Groff, who just came out. He's a young teen heartthrob [in Glee]. He's so talented and so delicious and needs our love and support. Instead, [Setoodeh] says he's not believable at all. It was very veiled self-loathing. Really upsetting.

Every time we go forward, some asshole like this takes us back a bit. I was really glad that Kristin Chenoweth wrote what she did [in defense of her Promises, Promises costar Sean Hayes and other openly gay actors]. She sent it to me before it went out and about. I was very proud of her. For me to stand up and say, 'Fuck you,' that's what you'd expect. But for someone like Kristin, she stands up for what she believes in and is very committed.”

YES! And Michael Urie chimed in as well to say:

“Look, I'm not from fucking Vienna. We're all actors, and the audiences get it. When I saw Sean Hayes in Promises, Promises, it was a full house and everyone was completely in love with him. And I saw it at a Wednesday matinee full of tourists. They've all seen Sean in Will & Grace, and they loved him and believed in his relationship with Kristin. It worked.

And to attack, to quote Ugly Betty, someone [like Groff] recently 'hatched from the gay egg' is unconscionable and he should be strung [up]. [Groff] made everyone want him in Spring Awakening. And Cheyenne was fucking Elvis in All Shook Up. He was sexy and hot. He's always playing straight. And people buy tickets to see him. No straight critics accuse Sean Penn of not being able to play Harvey Milk or [criticize] Tom Hanks in Philadelphia.”

Cheyenne added:

That's because when straight actors play gay, they're so 'brave.' Why is it so fucking 'brave'? It's a part and he's a good actor. I hope we can get to the day where the best actor gets the part. End of story.”

WOWSA! We couldn't have said it better ourselves!

Who else is going to speak up?!
