Here are some photos of Sebastian Stan walking around. Captain America: Civil War has wrapped, but he’s still got his long Winter Soldier hair, which he’ll probably have to keep at least until the scheduled Civil War reshoots are done in a few months.

SCOTUS has just ruled in favour of same sex marriage. The Hollywood Reporter posted a story yesterday about Hollywood’s “stromos”, identifying a Hollywood trend among straight actors appealing to the gay audience: Today's stromos are the flip side of gay actors who want to read straight for their careers: They are straight actors striving to read gayish to optimize their appeal — and maximize the number of butts, gym-molded or otherwise, in movie theater seats. Full Story
