The Gay Agenda: 10 Things We’re Eyeing In November


Ewan McGregor, Chelsea Peretti, and Emma Stone top our pop culture must-list



Now that FOX's origin series has found its groove, the show has become one to watch each week as James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) struggles to maintain a sense of humanity in a city built on crime. The real joy comes in the show's supporting characters: Robin Lord Taylor delights as the Penguin-in-the-making; Cory Michael Smith charms as Edward Nygma, a forensics operative who enjoys a clever riddle; and Jada Pinkett Smith having a field day as mobstress Fish Mooney.

Yes Please by Amy Poehler


In Amy Poehler's new book -- a mix of essays, poems, anecdotes, and plenty of surprises -- the actress lets fans into her head. Poehler opens up about everything from fighting to save Parks and Recreation to her divorce from Will Arnett. Poehler, however, really finds her pace when she recalls her first pregnancy while still acting on Saturday Night Live and the moments leading up to the birth of her son. (Harper Collins, Oct. 28)

The Real Thing


Ewan McGregor leads an all-star cast, which includes Maggie Gyllenhaal and Cynthia Nixon sporting British accents, in a story about playwright having trouble separating fiction from reality when it comes to his own marriage. McGregor looks like he's absolutely having fun acting out Tom Stoppard's words that you can't help but be affected by his outstanding Broadway debut. (Roundabout Theatre Company, Oct. 30 - Jan. 4)

Getting On


There's no denying that everyone is excited about the second season of The Comeback on HBO. When it returns, it will be joined by the other hilarious comedy on the network's schedule, Getting On, starring Laurie Metcalf, Niecy Nash, and Alex Borstein. The show is a surprising mix of comedy that is more at the expense of the doctors and nurses serving the needs of elderly patients "getting on" in years than the patients themselves. With only six episodes in the first season, there's no excuse not to re-watch and ready oneself for another six episodes of sharp humor. (HBO, Nov. 9)

Emma Stone


Following two mixed performances in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Woody Allen's Magic in the Moonlight, Emma Stone is back in form with two new projects. Sharing the screen with Michael Keaton in Birdman, Stone is earning Oscar buzz for her self-deprecating turn as Sam Thomson. On stage, Stone will make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles in current revival of Cabaret alongside Alan Cumming. (Roundabout Theatre Company, Nov. 11 - Feb. 1)

Nick Jonas


No longer a boy or a "Jonas Brother," Nick is determined to carve out his own space in pop culture. He turned heads with a shirtless photo shoot in Flaunt that whet the appetites for his new DirecTV series, Kingdom, which was already renewed for a second season. And now he's delivering his second punch with his sophomore self-titled album that mixes disco, R&B, and pop into a sexy blend a club-ready songs. (Island Records, Nov. 11)

Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats


On Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chelsea Peretti shines as the aloof administrator Gina Linetti. While the show gives her plenty of material to work with, it's an ensemble show. In her new Netflix comedy special, Peretti lets fans get a taste of her own humor. While not as sharp as her TV persona, it's fun to see the comedian in her element. (Netflix, Nov. 14)



Prepare to see Magic Mike like you've never seen him before. In Foxcatcher, director Bennett Miller's third feature-length film about the real life tragedy surrounding Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, Channing Tatum explores the dark side of masculinity. Though, the real revelation is Steve Carrell as the paranoid-schizophrenic John du Pont, who becomes obsessed with the world of wrestling and Schultz himself. (Theaters, Nov. 14)

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


With Lorde curating the soundtrack to the latest edition of The Hunger Games franchise, it's the most exciting blend of artists yet. In addition to contributing two new songs, Lorde has rounded up new music by Charli XCX, Grace Jones, Stromae, and Tove Lo. No matter where you stand on the films, you can't help but get excited about this new era of all-star soundtracks that follows the films' own albums, as well as The Fault In Our Stars and the Twilight soundtrack series. (Republic Records, Nov. 17)

The Imitation Game


Gay mathematician Alan Turing, who cracked the Enigma code and helped ensure the Allied victory during WWII, sees Benedict Cumberbatch telling his story on the big screen. While the film itself is flawed, it's "Cumberbatch's immensely engaging performance as Turing" that brings the story to life. As Out's Aaron Hicklin explains, "The Imitation Game turns out to be an unexceptional movie with an exceptional performance at its heart." (Theaters, Nov. 28)
