EVIE HARRIS: SHINING STAR

In 2001, my actor friend Jack Plotnick (Gods and Monsters, Action) and I made a 13-minute film called Evie Harris: Shining Star. To date, the comedy has screened at gay film festivals in Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas and Philadelphia, and in 2002, was one of the finalists in the Planet Out Short Film competition. We lost to a lesbian sex comedy but what are you going to do?

Down but never out show biz legend Evie Harris is a character Jack's been doing for years at various parties of mine and other events like the drag pageant Quest for the Crown and The MisMatch Game. In Evie Harris: Shining Star, Evie takes her biggest fan (played by yours truly) to Hollywood Boulevard to clean her star on the Walk of Fame. Much hijinks ensue.

In 2003, Evie made her big screen debut in the feature Girls Will Be Girls co-starring Coco Peru and Varla Jean Merman. I make a cameo in the film as a beleaguered TV director saddled with the job of shooting Evie's comeback special.
