On the heels of a report by GLAAD that the number of gay characters is on the rise in broadcast television, Dennis Miller announced that his radio show is doing its part to support the GLBT community by hiring a new (presumably gay) intern.
And, in keeping with Miller's recent personnel choices, casting mostly friends and employees for his upcoming flick 'Mansquito,' the radio host said today that the new intern already has a prominent role in the film as Mansquito's butler, Fernando Dangle.
While not a substantial speaking role (he mostly utters 'Your tea, sir' throughout the script), Dangle's character holds crucial information about Mansquito's past. "Mansquito has a secret," Miller divulged today, "and only Fernando Dangle knows it."
Wasting no time developing Dangle's character, wardrobe artists from the 'Mansquito' camp have already released the designs for Dangle's proposed work garb: a hooded pea coat, a thong and a pair of Tweety Bird-yellow wellies -- an odd choice, to be sure, but seemingly in keeping with the overall aesthetic of the film.
