Morning Brew – Wed. June 5: Amy Schumer gets gay at the gym, Bex Taylor-Claus had to be more masculine for “The Killing”

Good morning!

Atomic Kitten singer Natasha Hamilton will be playing the role of Maureen in a UK tour of Rent. She said of the lesbian part:

I love Rent so I am made up to be playing the role of Maureen! She’s a great character… a little bit cheeky, flirtatious and injects some real comedy moments into the show.

Because June is pride month, both Comcast and Netflix are playing a ton of LGBT movies. Don’t go without!

Bex Taylor-Klaus of The Killing talked with AMC about playing Bullet. My favorite quote:

The first day, we were just starting to get into our characters and figure them out and I remember [director] Ed [Bianchi] saying, “Nope, nope, nope, more masculine. More dude!” And I have honestly never gotten that direction before from anyone. Usually it’s “Less dude, be more feminine.” So that was pretty entertaining.
