Hal Sparks is one of the scheduled guests on THE TONIGHT SHOW - Friday - Jan. 26, 2001.

It is the first talk show appearance on a major show talking about QAF.

Be interesting to see what clip they show.

Thanks for the heads-up, guys. Hopefully, they'll have the sense to show a clip that includes a scene between Sparks and Sharon Gless (thus featuring his best, most sympathetic acting as well as the show's most recognizeable acting name). If I were editing it, I'd probably pick their scene outside of Justin's house where she whaps him on the head and says "Know thyself."

Very well said, Matt. Ditto.

And thanks, Atkol Video. I'll be watching and hoping Jay doesn't do anything stupid, because if he did, Hal would follow, puppylike, trust me.

AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!!

I fell asleep on my couch before the news Friday night and missed the Tonight Show. Did anyone see Sparks' appearance on it? How good (or bad) was he? Did he aquit himself well, or suffer yet another outbreak of foot-in-mouth disease?

I fell asleep too Matt but managed to push "record" before passing out.

Hal Sparks looked great. I think he's really cute. He talked about growing up in Kentucky, his stand up comedy years, Talk Soup and other topics, when Jay Leno finally said "let me ask you about Queer As Folk." Whereupon Hal said, "oh, here we go," casually turned to his right and, in a sensual manner, placed his hand on Matthew McConaughey's arm. Matthew responded by putting his arm around Hal and Hal told him that "they've asked me to ask you to come on, by the way."

Jay asked Hal how a straight man prepares for a scene that involves kissing another man and Hal got a good laugh when he responded, "how committed are you to finding out the answer to that question?" A bit later, Hal showed a video clip to demonstrate how he prepares for the kissing scenes in QaF. The video shows Hal kissing a man and as the camera comes in close you can see that it is a dummy and then Hal pulls away and you can see that the puppet looks like Jay Leno. Hal then falls on a sofa with the dummy under him and starts making out.

Jay asked Hal if gay men hit on him now and Hal said that happened to him before anyway because he's short (I don't know if he was serious: do all gay guys like short men? I know I do). He also said that people now ask him for fashion tips. Leno kept pushing for a serious answer to what it was like for a straight man to make love to another man and Hal did seem uncomfortable. He finally said, "it's medical. That's the only way I can explain it. It's about as erotic as turning your head and coughing." He then went on to explain that you're really scared the first time because "I guess everybody in the back of their head is like, 'what if I like it?'"

There was some more talk about how Hal's girlfriend reacts to his role in QaF and Hal says it isn't a problem for her.

All in all, I think he did very well although I had the feeling he was worried about saying the wrong thing. I'll bet he heard us.

They did not show any film clip from the show with the exception of a visual while cutting away to commercial from the first episode of Brian and Mikey on the ledge after Brian learns about being a father.

The local NY news failed to mention Sparks and the 11 PM network promo told people to tune in Queer folk Hal Sparks.

It appears they still have a problem.

TV GUIDE SLAMS HIS APPEARANCE IN THE CHEERS AND JEERS SECTION...

SAYS HE AND LENO WERE INFANTILE AND SPARKS SPENT THE WHOLE TIME COMING OUT AS AN AVOWED HETEROSEXUAL.

I DIDN'T SEE IT, BUT TV GUIDE SAID HE WAS BEING OFFENSIVE IN SO OBVIOUSLY TRYING TO DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM THE "STIGMA" OF THE MATERIAL...

SPARKS AND CHRIS POTTER MUST BE INSTITUTING A "NO MORE INTERVIEWS" POLICY AS WE SPEAK...

This is all very confusing. I have been told of gay affairs with Hal Sparks and have believed it. Now he is almost convincing me of his heterosexuality. What gives? Protesteth too much or?????
