    I thought James Corden was quite good in Begin Again and Into the Woods. Of course, the success he’s had as the host of The Late Late Show has opened a lot of doors for him in the industry. As for gay, musically-talented actors who could’ve been an alternative for the role of Barry Glickman, I know a lot of people think Nathan Lane should’ve been cast, but he has pretty much been taking a break from musicals since leaving the Broadway production of The Addams Family in 2011. Maybe it would’ve made the most sense for Brooks Ashmanskas to be the one performer from the original Broadway cast to reprise their role in the film.

    Yeah, I think Corden is indeed a good actor, but he’s picking all the wrong kinds of projects. I mentioned the other day, his work in One Man Two Guvnors was fantastic, and I’ve honestly heard several people call it one of the funniest performances they’ve ever seen. Helps that it was very different from the roles that he’s been playing lately.

    And yes, Nathan Lane would’ve been a great choice, even though it’s unlikely he would’ve agreed to come out of musical retirement for this. Corden always struck me as an odd choice. It just felt like they went for the most famous campy, heavyset actor with musical experience they could find. Don’t think they needed someone around Streep’s age, but he feels too young to play a Broadway vet opposite her.

    “The main, and huge, drawback is James Corden. His performance is gross and offensive, the worst gayface in a long, long time. It’s horrifically bad.” – Erik Anderson, Awards Watch

    I feel like a lot of straight actors have trouble with flamboyantly gay characters, as they either lean too much into stereotype, or their too afraid of leaning into stereotype and downplay it too much. There are still some who pull it off, for instance, Andrew Garfield in Angels in America.

    Initial reviews are out. Streep’s ink is so good I’m actually tempted to predict her.

    It’s going to be on the low 60s MC Score, if it don’t end up with less

    EW gave it a D
    AV Club a D+

    The raves from Variety and USA Today are so satisfying to read

    Looks like it will get mid 60s on metacritic which is what was expected.

    Mid 60s is actually much better than I expected!

    Even Corden got some love from USA Today

    The reviews are love it or hate it

    I actually thought the film may get closer to the 70s.

    These reviews are basically what I expected. Positive, praising it as fun and heartfelt, but also not too in love with it. It’s pretty much how the Broadway show was received.

    Still don’t expect this to be a major contender outside of the Globes, but with all the films that dropped out, and the fact that people may be more receptive to a feel good story in a depressing year, I feel like this does have a chance of surprising, though I won’t predict for now.

    Mid 60s is exactly where I thought this will land. Although I don’t know what that does for its award chances.

    54 on metacritic. It’s not happening.
