He is one of the stars of "When We Rise", the LGBT human right story on this week on ABC. In it he plays Cleve Jones. Here is one picture...
|Guy Pearce with Charles Socarides|
Okay, what is weird here is that I know Charles Socarides (in the background).
If you came to the Project 1948 fund raiser Christmas party you meet Charles too. He is a great actor, usually off-Broadway. He is the other weird thing. Charles is playing his actual brother Richard Socarides in the show. In real life Richard Socarides worked in a variety of positions in the Clinton White House from 1993 - 1999. They are both sons of Charles W. Socarides an activist anti-gay psychologist who founded NARTH. Richard is gay, Charles (above) is not.
(Not that it matters. Guy Pearce is not gay either - he was married and is presently in a relationship with a woman.)
Anyway, after I saw the picture above, I told Charles I was super jealous he worked with Guy Pearce. Charles said that Guy was a very sweet man and a total professional. It's nice when you hopes about some one are confirmed. Because I do love Guy.

|With no short term memories, he tattooed clues on his body|
He is one of those actors who can transform looks wise extremely well. And can match his acting to almost any period of location.
