4. MUSIC: Daylight, Matt Doyle
Currently starring in Broadway’s War Horse, out performer Matt Doyle has just released his soulful debut EP, which was fully funded by fans through Kickstarter.com and includes a sultry cover of Sam Cooke’s “Lost and Lookin’.” The 24-year-old Spring Awakening alum — better known to Gossip Girl fans as Eric’s boyfriend, Jonathan — will also star in Private Romeo, an upcoming gay film adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.
3. FILM: We Are the Night (Wir Sind die Nacht)
Dennis Gansel’s delicious German-language thriller, which opens May 27 in New York, is the most exciting new addition to the vampire genre in years. Nina Hoss takes big bites out of the scenery as Louise, the glamorous leader of a hot, hard-partying female vampire trio in Berlin. The fangs come out when she falls dangerously in love with a newly turned tomboy — The Reader’s Karoline Herfurth — who doesn’t return her sexual advances.
2. DVD: True Blood: The Complete Third Season
Available May 31 on DVD, the third season of out creator Alan Ball’s smart and sexy HBO vampire fangtasia was a charm, thanks to Denis O’Hare and Theo Alexander as a vampire couple; unexpected gay fantasy sequences; beefed-up parts for Kristin Bauer and Evan Rachel Wood as bisexual vamps Pam and Sophie-Anne; a beau for Lafayette; and more skin than ever from Ryan Kwanten, Alexander Skarsgård, and Joe Manganiello.
