Hot old man gay sex... ok maybe not the sex. Find out who Saul will date on Bros&Hos

"Brothers & Sisters": Meet Saul's new boyfriend!

HINT: It's someone in this photo with him!

You can spend 5 seconds and watch my gif.....

or you can just look further down....

He's 64-years-old (much more age appropriate than Dave Foley who plays Saul's blind date in an upcoming episode) and has done both film and television including Batman & Robin, Scrooged, and Annie Hall. He's also played a villain's father, showed up on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as well as Frasier. And this won't be his first time playing gay.

John Glover has been with his partner sculptor Adam Kurtzman since the mid nineties.

I call it Bros & Hos as a term of endearment. I don't think any of the women have loose morals

LIONEL LUTHOR?! hahahahaha
tucker 22nd-Oct-2008 10:28 pm (UTC)
I love the show

But Saul is so disgusting, his face disturbs me
whimsicalwoo 22nd-Oct-2008 10:31 pm (UTC)
I thought Saul was actually the more interesting gay character on "Brothers & Sisters." He's kinder and more vulnerable than his nephew (blanking on the name) somehow.

And I was seriously on the edge of my seat when he old best friend met him in his office and there was this awkward tension between them and Saul was all like, "So how's the wife?" and his friend was like, "We're divorced." *meaningful look* "I'm living all alone in this mansion by the sea and I'm gay." *smoldering look* "You should totally come visit me sometime." *meaningful look*

And his friend was so cute! And he was looking all sad and bereft like he'd been in love with Saul forever and was now Saul would run off with him to his mansion by the sea. But Saul was too scared and in the closet to go. :(

Why is this subplot not being developed?!
rakugaking 22nd-Oct-2008 10:33 pm (UTC)
i loved that whole bit! i like that we're seeing an older gay character and their struggles rather than just the younger ones. cute parminder icon btw :D
whimsicalwoo 22nd-Oct-2008 10:47 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I really love this, too! I remember a critic being disappointed with how Rowling treated Dumbledore's sexual orientation because it's like, he made one big mistake by falling in love with the wrong person and suddenly his romantic life is over. How come he never got to date and have other relationships?

I also loved this little subplot in a romance novel I read once where the President was secretly gay (and the book was about how his wife went off and found someone else) but it was so sad because he had this tragic emotional love affair with his head of security. And they'd been best friends since college and always secretly loved each other but knew they could never do anything about it. And then the wife was talking about how at the funeral, the Head of Security guy looked more broken up than she did. I was like, :'(

I find stuff like that so sad and tragic! Haha, sorry for rambling. ^_~

And thanks for the icon props! I love her. And your icon is mesmerizing trying to figure out which part is Wil and which House. How did you do that?
titti 22nd-Oct-2008 10:32 pm (UTC)
It's Lionel Luthor. Love the man.
bates_is_sex 22nd-Oct-2008 10:32 pm (UTC)
I liked when Keith Mars was on it. I really hoped they'd get together. But no. :[

Anyway, I'm glad Saul is getting a boyfriend of any kind. I adore him. Ron Rifkin is such a cute old man. I wish he was my grandpa.
rockonlily 22nd-Oct-2008 10:34 pm (UTC)
I just started watching this show this summer because I just miss Alias too much. I cannot relax watching it because my mind is CONVINCED that Ron Rifkin is going to do something eeeeeevil.

I can't handle that he's just this normal likeable guy whose biggest deal is just that he was in the closet. Where's Uncle Inappropriate? His normalcy is creeping me out more than he would creep me out if he were just evil.
whimsicalwoo 22nd-Oct-2008 10:41 pm (UTC)
You know what I found surprising, though? Apparently he was kind of an unfeeling bastard in the first season.

I started watching it half-way through the first season and didn't really think much about his character, but according to my mom, he was a jerk to Nora and was kind of distant from the family and didn't really help out the family business.

I think they changed his character to make him more likable and being gay makes him more vulnerable, so idk. I was a little disturbed that the writers would feel free to do that without anyone noticing but I guess if it was during the first season...

And lol, I love your conspiracies! ^_~ I need to watch Alias sometime.
baroness 22nd-Oct-2008 10:37 pm (UTC)

WHAT, how did I not know this?
springandsummer 22nd-Oct-2008 11:00 pm (UTC)
That was pretty much my exact reaction.
limey37 22nd-Oct-2008 11:58 pm (UTC)
I totally just said the same to my mom.
ryanchai 22nd-Oct-2008 10:40 pm (UTC)
i had no idea john glover was gay until this very post.
upisdown_x 22nd-Oct-2008 10:43 pm (UTC)
Lmao, me either.
dnfrommn 22nd-Oct-2008 10:46 pm (UTC)
Glad to edumacate you. :)

I'd only heard like a year or two ago. And I don't remember what context it came up.

He'll always be the Devil from Brimstone for me.
yourstrulytessa 22nd-Oct-2008 10:57 pm (UTC)
me neither bb
smirk_dog 22nd-Oct-2008 10:44 pm (UTC)
Awww. I love Saul. He, Kevin and Sarah have been making this show for me this season.
londonactually 22nd-Oct-2008 11:03 pm (UTC)
i love this show, i can always rely on it - it's always good.
sandy_elle 22nd-Oct-2008 11:04 pm (UTC)
Aw. I kind of wanted him to start dating Milo! It would have been adorable.
arcadiaego 22nd-Oct-2008 11:05 pm (UTC)
I am still kind of pissed about Lionel's defenestration seeing as John Glover was practically the only reason I kept watching Smallville for fucking years. (Well, and James Marsters whenever he was in it.) Serves me right for having weird taste in men I guess.
b1cho I call it Bros & Hos as a term of endearment. I don't think any of the women have loose morals22nd-Oct-2008 11:08 pm (UTC)
I almost spit the soup I was drinking.

I need to catch up with B&S. I stopped at the last episode of Season 1 (and I still need to watch some eps from that season). I really like the show.
inantarctica jason > scotty22nd-Oct-2008 11:11 pm (UTC)
i'm on episode 2.14, but i know scotty and kevin get married in the finale. not happy.
call_me_cash Re: jason > scotty22nd-Oct-2008 11:15 pm (UTC)
ugh, seriously. scotty is the most annoying character on the show.
calindigo 22nd-Oct-2008 11:14 pm (UTC)
Didn't he do The Paris Letter with Ron Rifkin in NY? I know the play was by the creator of Brothers and Sisters. (And Rifkin was in the LA cast with Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Radnor, and Patricia Wettig -- I have the audio from it but haven't listened to it yet, as I anticipate being aggravated that I cannot actually see Barney seduce Ted.)
therealycats 22nd-Oct-2008 11:14 pm (UTC)

Does this mean I have to watch this shit?
wagacca 22nd-Oct-2008 11:16 pm (UTC)
I love John Glover! He was half the reason to watch Smallville (Michael Rosenbaum being the other). And my friend met him in a gay bar in Chelsea. He had no idea who he was but his friend was a major Smallville fan. Needless to say, I was super jealous!
littlebones 23rd-Oct-2008 12:30 am (UTC)
man, he was creepy as hell on criminal intent.

i hope he plays a nice guy. saul's a cutie.
ateliergal 23rd-Oct-2008 12:54 am (UTC)
I didn't know John's gay.

I had a crush on him when I first saw Gremlins 2
ladytia 23rd-Oct-2008 04:11 am (UTC)
Shit Luthor is gay? Damn, I had no clue.

But Brothers and Sisters is my new obsession, I just started watching it. I hated Ron as Sloane on Alias, but that was because he's a great actor and made me had Sloane. I love him as Saul though, I love him sfm.
ladytia 23rd-Oct-2008 04:14 am (UTC)
Oh and why was I surprised to see three Alias characters on B&S? That totally made me stop and actually give the show my time.

Plus, Sally Field is a crazy bitch in RL so I had to watch, I love her.
liberateourtime 23rd-Oct-2008 01:09 pm (UTC)
I watched like the first four episodes of season one and then I forgot about it and now I kind of want to watch it again.

I want Kevin and Saul to bond over being.

And the druggie soldier son is hot.
demented_21 23rd-Oct-2008 01:40 pm (UTC)
John Glover is amazing.
insaynejayne 25th-Oct-2008 05:46 am (UTC)

...I'm even more aroused than ever.
