James Franco as Ex-Gay Activist, Michael Glatze
Michael Glatze is certainly a curious figure. Before becoming a Christian pastor and claiming that a god gave him the choice to be straight, Glatze was the founder of the magazine Young Gay America. In the upcoming film Michael, James Franco portrays the ex-gay activist and over the weekend, the actor started teasing fans with Instagrams of his new bleached hair styled to look like Glatze.
Michael, which is based on a 2011 New York Times Magazine article by Benoit Denizet-Lewis, will star Franco in the lead role and Zachary Quinto and Emma Roberts will play Glatze’s ex-boyfriend and new girlfriend respectively.
