    He is such a good young actor and what an awesome filmography at such a young age and working with good directors, writers and actors that early, he just needs a little mainstream push so more people will watch his works.

    The circle of life. Russel Crowe played a gay character way back in 1994, and now he's the father of a gay son 24 years later.

    Lucas is such a darling! He's undoubtedly my fav actor of his generation hands down!

    I love hearing that the actors involved really did their research to do their roles justice. Did not know at all that Russell Crowe met with with Garrard Conley's father to get into the role. And it's also great to hear the parents got behind this project, knowing that their portrayal would be divisive.

      @apple's lover I think he may be referring to the three Aussies that star in it

    I like him, but doesn't he have any better/cleaner shoes to wear especially when he appears on a national TV?

      Watch ben is back BUILD SERIES
      That is the exact shoes he wore during the interview
      He also wore an ill fitting large pants 🤣
      Maybe he does not care, maybe that is his style maybe he do not anything about proper styling 🤣 we do not know
      But he just became the cover man of GQ this month
      Maybe he is working on it 🤣

      I think it's a style thing. it's not uncommon for people to let skate shoes deteriorate, and there are several designers shoes that are intentionally distressed

      The rest of what he's wearing is very nice. He may just have thought he could get by with something well worn and comfortable for footwear, as the camera coverage for most interviews wouldn't make shoes visible.
      I do love this kid. He's such a sensitive actor. His Patrick in MBTS was the best portrayal of an anguished teen I've seen since Timothy Hutton in Ordinary People. That scene at the freezer in the middle of the destroys me all over again just thinking about it.

      😆 he probably doesn't care. I'd wear something else to an interview but that's just me. Maybe he likes to go like that.

    How is it appropriate at all for a film journalist to ask a young actor point-blank if he’s struggling with his sexuality? If I was Hedges I would have told Travers it’s none of his fucking business.
