DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis visits the West Hollywood apartment of actor Emerson Collins who along with writer-director Del Shores produced the new film A Very Sordid Wedding, which is now available on DVD and VOD. Emerson talks about the major barnstorming promotional tour he's been on for the last few months, his against-type role as a serial killer in the film, playing scenes opposite Leslie Jordan and the Starbucks fix he has to have no matter what city he's in. He floats a theory about the traits that unite Sordid Lives fans no matter where they're from and shares stories about Whoopi Goldberg and her bus and getting Delta Burke's first-ever text message. He also talks about attending high school in Singapore, being a Britney-Whitney gay, appearing as a regular on Bravo's "The People's Couch," his heavy duty TV-watching habit, his Southern Baptist background, starring in "Buyer & Cellar” and his coming out journey. Other topics include: how guys treat him totally differently with his buzz-cut, why being on the Waco, TX morning news made him feel amazing, the letter he wrote for Katie Holmes, his worst haircut and the biggest lie he ever told in an audition and how it came back to haunt him.

At the end of the episode Dennis talks about his peripheral connection to the Anthony Rapp-Kevin Spacey story.
