The DVD commentary for the new edition of City Slickers (why the world needed one of those is beyond me) features a juicy revelation by star Billy Crystal about the actor who played his 10-year-old son.
“He was always performing,” said Crystal of the lad. “He would sing from South Pacific and we’d all go, ‘He’s gay, he’s going to be gay.’”
And which young future star was cast in the role of Crystal's spawn in that particular film? None other than Jake Gyllenhaal.
And now you know...the rest of the story.
(Unless Crystal made the whole thing up as a way of trying to move more copies of the special edition of City Slickers. This could prove a bit of marketing genius. If it catches on...look out for lots more revelations down the road:
Future DVD Special Edition of War of the Worlds. Tom Cruise on Dakota Fanning. "I'll never forget the day I caught Dakota pleasuring herself with a bratwurst. I said to her, 'That looks like fun. Can I try?' It was a great bonding moment for us...")
