IN BRIEF

Brokeback Mountain
It’s been quite a year for the queer crowd. First gay marriage was legalized in some Canadian provinces. Then came Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Now Hollywood is jumping on the rainbow-coloured bandwagon with Brokeback Mountain, an adaptation of the E. Annie Proulx novella to be directed by Ang Lee. An epic story of two cowboy lovers set in the early 1960s, the project is currently in negotiations with Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger to play the leads. Teary-eyed proclamations of love, steamy sex scenes (if the film is true to the source) and plot... well, we’re sure there is one, but really, who cares?

Never mind Bullard…
The City of Toronto has enlisted Conan O’Brien to do what Sir Mick and his band apparently couldn’t: restore Toronto’s forsaken reputation as a desirable tourist destination. The last bastion of comedy in America’s late night lineup, the Toronto Late Night with Conan O’Brien shows will feature a slew of Canadian A-listers, including Michael J. Fox and Mike Myers. The shows air Feb. 10 to 13 in O’Brien’s regular university student-friendly time slot, 12:35 a.m..

Grammy Awards coming soon
The 46th annual Grammy Awards are set to take place this upcoming Sunday. In the much-coveted Record of the Year category, Brit-rockers Coldplay will be facing off against the likes of Eminem, Beyoncé & Jay-Z, OutKast and Justin Timberlake & the Black Eyed Peas.
